Does anyone have recommendations for a stellar high school homeschool history curriculum (preferably literature-based)?

I want to find a history curriculum that will teach my children and keep them engaged.

What I really enjoyed about learning history as a homeschooler is that there are so many materials out there, aside from the basic curriculum. In general, we followed a basic framework, and then I would select other biographies, primary sources, etc. that matched my interests. One really interesting curriculum framework is the Big History Project (, which has TONS of resources and multimedia tools. For US history in particular, I warmly recommend Joy Hakim’s A History of US; in addition to an extensive amount of information, it also includes important historical documents and interesting historical anecdotes.
