NEW YORK (AP) - Elizabeth A. Fenn’s “Encounters at the Heart of the World: A History of the Mandan People” has won the Pulitzer Prize for history.

Fenn was cited Monday for her chronicle of the Mandans, which the judge’s called “an engrossing, original narrative showing the Mandans, a Native American tribe in the Dakotas, as a people with a history.”

The finalists in the category were Sven Beckert’s “Empire of Cotton: A Global History” and Nick Bunker’s “An Empire on the Edge: How Britain Came to Fight America.”
