“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” This quote attributed to philosopher George Santayana is one justification for the importance of history in our classroom curriculum. Award-winning “Outside Magazine” editor and bestselling historian Hampton Sides resurrects the memory of the U.S. Marines at “Frozen Chosin” in Korea, described by Kirkus Reviews as “a battle that has become a byword for suffering.” 

Sides’ six trademark “moment by moment” depictions of history have captivated readers as “non-fiction adventure stories.” Amazon named “On Desperate Ground” as one of the Ten Best History Titles of 2018. He has written for National Geographic, The New Yorker, Esquire, Preservation, and Men’s Journal. A frequent lecturer, he divides his time between Santa Fe and Colorado College, where he teaches narrative non-fiction and serves as Journalist-in-Residence.
