When they need to remove a rock barrier to lower the water level of a lake, Smith manufactures nitroglycerin. David Harrell is undecided whether the novel opens in 1919 or 1920 (220). The difference between this kind of writing and nonfiction is where nonfiction only gives factual accounts of events, fiction can use factual details to create non-factual, or fictional, accounts.
