The author’s books are distinguished by a vivid and lively descriptive style of writing unlike today’s dry, textbook style. Dr. Tucker has long focused on human interest stories, historical vignettes, and colorful characters. Describing places, characters, and events in great detail, the author’s unique narrative style, often poetic, in overall vivid descriptiveness, allows the reader to be transported back in time to stirring moments of other ages.
By bringing people and turning points of history vividly to life like few scholars today, Dr. Tucker has written books of rare distinction. A narrative and descriptive historian with a PhD who has successfully merged these strengths, he has a rare ability to give readers an intimate feel for history.
