I have organized our high school collection by genres, and am thinking
about creating a new genre, or perhaps sub-genre, for nonfiction action and
adventure type books. It would be a place to direct those readers looking
for Action and Adventure, but "real stories".  Examples, *The Port Chicago
50, The Grand Escape*.    Most of these titles I have pulled out of the
"Narrative Nonfiction" section, which includes Erik Larsen books, H is for
Hawk, etc.  Has anyone else sorted these types of books, and if so, what do
you call the genre, and do you shelve it with your Action/Adventure
fiction?  Sub-section of narrative or literary nonfiction?

but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now
mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.” J.R.R. Tolkien
