This is the homepage of William Craig, writer and editor.

His new book, Yankee Come Home: On the Road from San Juan Hill to Guantanamo  (Walker/Bloomsbury USA, 2012) blends history, travel and memoir to explore the United States’ lost legacy in Cuba.  A Minneapolis Star-Tribune Top Ten Critics’ Pick for 2012, Yankee Come Home was praised in the Boston Globe as “ a wonder-filled act of excavation and an indictment of our nation’s foreign policy.” A starred review in Kirkus Reviews notes, “The Spanish-American War was the quintessential journalists’ adventure. Craig beats his professional predecessors with his skilled and accessible personal journal and blunt history.”

Craig’s editorials, criticism and feature articles have won numerous national and regional awards.  He accepts freelance writing and editing commissions, and is a professor of history and humanities in the New Hampshire community college system.
