Overview

THE BRIGHTEST NEW PUZZLE IDEA IN HISTORY!

Introducing Random House History Mystery Crossword Puzzles, the first-ever series
especially for crossword fans who love history.

Henry Hook, an eminent name in crossword history himself, presents fifty
brand-new Sunday-size puzzles with an historical flavor. But your puzzling
doesn't end there. Each of the fifty history crosswords has its own
"mystery" — a famous historical figure that you must identify. How? By
using the clues you'll find in a limerick that will be spelled out when
you've completed each crossword.

Here are two sample Henry Hook "mysteries" to puzzle over:

Refusing to be a defrauder,
I stood when traversing the water.
When a youngster, I hewed;
The whole land was my brood;
And I'm yours for a buck (or a quarter).

I challenged my husband's decision
To ask such a big imposition
Abandoning dresses,
I rode clad in tresses,
Becoming Tom's ultimate vision.

The answers can be found below.

Whether or not you believe that history repeats itself, you can be sure that
you've never had as much fun with a puzzle book as you will with Random House
History Mystery Crossword Puzzles
.

Answers to limericks:
George Washington ("I cannot tell a lie"; standing in Washington Crossing the Delaware; chopped down a cherry tree; Father of the Country; portrait on dollar bill and quarter)

Lady Godiva (opposed the taxes levied by her husband Leofric; rode naked on horseback; Peeping Tom went blind upon seeing her)
