ANDY WARHOL: ANDY WARHOL BIOGRAPHY, MEMOIR, QUOTES: (The Wit and Wisdom of Andy Warhol)

by Anderson Cooper and Andy Warhol

TIME LIMITED SPECIAL OFFEREVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ADOLF HITLER"I love it when you ask actors, 'What're you doing now?' and they say, "I'm between roles.' To be living 'life between roles,' that's my favorite."- Andy WarholMore than twenty years after his death, Andy Warhol remains one of the most influential figures in contemporary art and culture. Warhol’s life and work inspires creative thinkers worldwide thanks to his enduring imagery, his artfully cultivated celebrity, and the ongoing research of dedicated scholars. His impact as an artist is far deeper and greater than his one prescient observation that “everyone will be world famous for fifteen minutes.” His omnivorous curiosity resulted in an enormous body of work that spanned every available medium and most importan...

Wichastah Thosan's Great Journey: As told by Maza Redman

by Maza Redman

For many years, more than I can remember, I was shown events by Blue Warrior, the main character in this story. After a long time, I found that as I became older, my memories of dreams were beginning to leave me. I feared that one day all that was shown would be forgotten, leaving no one left to tell the peoples’ story and their struggle. In faith, I began writing this book, not to educate or persuade others, but for myself that I might remember what I was shown and all those who gave their lives for the people’s survival.This writing does not try to replace any of the Red two-leg sacred stories that have been past down from generation to generation as these are Sacred but only adds to them so many may see the truth. With great thanks and respect to all the Ancestors of the Red two-leg...

Six Years With the Texas Rangers: 1875-1881

by James B. Gillett

From the Mason County War to the Horrell-Higgins feud, the capture of Sam Bass, and the pursuit of Victorio's rebellious Apaches, Gillett saw the kind of action that established the Rangers' enduring reputation for effectiveness....

by John D. Billings

Hardtack and Coffee or The Unwritten Story of Army Life (1887) is a memoir by John D. Billings.

Death of the Rising Sun: A Search for Truth in the John F. Kennedy Assassination

by Kevin James Shay

The assassination of John F. Kennedy ranks among the biggest stories of the 20th century, according to a survey of American historians and journalists. While numerous books cover the 1963 tragedy from a conspiracy or lone-assassin viewpoint, this new work by veteran journalist Kevin James Shay attempts to tell the story that occurred between Kennedy's 1960 presidential triumph and his assassination. The narrative, infused with often behind-the-scenes details that have been brought to light in recent years, provides a compelling account that is particularly geared towards the average reader, not the assassination researcher.Shay witnessed Kennedy’s funeral in Washington, D.C., as a boy and grew up in Dallas. He has researched the killing off and on since 1978, when eyewitness Bill Newman ...

THE MAN WITH THE MONA LISA SMILE

by Richard Hooke and Larry Rivera

JFK Researchers Richard Hooke and Larry Rivera provide the most detailed, structural and conclusive analysis of the Altgens6 photo that has ever been done; undeniable and indisputable proof, based upon sound scientific reasoning and particular examination of the photographic record. Having broken free from the shadow of the JFK conspiratorial BIG LIE of the 20th Century, and the Power of Officialdom that decreed for 50 years Billy Lovelady was Altgens6 Doorman, Richard Hooke, employing personal computer technology and direct reasoning, has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that Lee Harvey Oswald was in the Texas School Book Depository doorway, on November 22, 1963 at 12:30 pm, and thus was not a shooter of President John F. Kennedy. Hooke and Rivera decipher the myriad of mystery, within t...

Preparing the Cold War: Project Casey Jones: Post Hostilities Aerial Mapping: Iceland, Europe and North Africa from June 1945 to December 1946

by Robert Boyd

Germany's surrender meant that World War II was over in Europe and no further bombing missions would be flown there. Rumors were rife and one started floating that the 305th and 306th Bombardment Groups would not accompany the Eighth Air Force to the war in the Pacific. Instead, these two units, with the greatest amount of service in the European theater, would be detailed to a new mission for preparing the Cold War: Photographic mapping of the continent of Europe, North Africa and Iceland. This rumor was confirmed on a morning early in June 1945. The group commanders briefed their men on the new mission, nicknamed “Project Casey Jones”.The initial reaction of the crews that were to fly the new mission was that the stringency of the task made its successful completion nearly impossible...

Berkeley 1967-2017 Summer of Love (Visit Berkeley)

by Caroline White and MiSoon Burzlaff

There are moments in time when a word or thought has such power it changes history; a generation so involved in the moment it becomes unstoppable; a spiritual awakening so profound that its very conception shatters perceptions, halts the world and makes people from all nations take notice. And for Berkeley, this moment can be traced to the 1960s. The Summer of Love 1967, centered in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury district, turned Berkeley into the epicenter of the counterculture movement. It was a tumultuous and often violent period marked by the origins of the Free Speech Movement beginning with the May 1960 House Un-American Activities Committee hearings at San Francisco City Hall, the emergence of the counterculture, the anti-war protests, the rise of the Women’s Movement, and endin...

CHEROKEE BLUE: The Life of Blue Hothouse

by Sherry Laymon

CHEROKEE BLUE is the biography of Blue Hothouse, one of the diminishing number of full-blood Cherokee Indians whose ancestors walked the Trail of Tears from Cherokee, North Carolina to Oklahoma during the winter of 1838-39. Blue Hothouse grew up in a Cherokee family richly influenced by Cherokee traditions. His early life experiences differed little from the lifestyles his ancestors lived many centuries before him. After white man’s law became the rule, the Cherokee culture diminished. During Blue’s childhood and youth, he witnessed and experienced many painful incidents, including discrimination and racism, as a result of European and Native American cultural conflict. This book is part of a greater effort being made to recapture and preserve the Cherokee culture to prevent it from fa...

Taming the Arkansas River

by Sherry Laymon

Problems of flooding and bank cave-ins had long made the Arkansas River a nuisance to farmers, planters, businessmen, merchants, and others who lived, worked, or owned property in the river valley. For captains who transported passengers and goods on the river, underwater snags, fallen trees, and shallow water levels created minute-to-minute crises. The river’s "fits of uncontrollable rage and prolonged spells of stubborn torpidity" generated cross currents and swirling eddies that continually created unseen hazards for boatmen. In 1872, the Arkansas Gazette listed 117 submerged river vessels, most of which sunk after being ripped apart by snags.The federal government had responded sporadically to numerous requests for assistance with river development. After John McClellan became a sena...

Captain Cook

by W.H.G. Kingston

Among all those Englishmen who, from a humble origin, have risen to an honourable position, Captain James Cook is especially worthy of record. His parents were of the peasant class—his father having commenced life as a farm-labourer, and his mother being a cottager’s daughter. Probably, however, they were both superior to others of the same station, as the husband, in process of time, became farm-bailiff to his employer—a Mr Thomas Skottowe. This was about the year 1730, and the farm of which he had the management was called Airy-Holme, near Ayton, in Yorkshire. Not far from this place, at the village of Marton, near Stockton-upon-Tees; his son James was born, on October 27, 1728. James was one of nine children, all of whom he survived, with the exception of a sister who married a fi...

Daniel Boone

by John Abbott

The little fleet of three small vessels, with which Columbus left Palos in Spain, in search of a new world, had been sixty-seven days at sea. They had traversed nearly three thousand miles of ocean, and yet there was nothing but a wide expanse of waters spread out before them. The despairing crew were loud in their murmurs, demanding that the expedition should be abandoned and that the ships should return to Spain. The morning of the 11th of October, 1492, had come. During the day Columbus, whose heart had been very heavily oppressed with anxiety, had been cheered by some indications that they were approaching land. Fresh seaweed was occasionally seen and a branch of a shrub with leaves and berries upon it, and a piece of wood curiously carved had been picked up.The devout commander was so...

Alcatraz: The Surprising History of America's Most Notorious Prison

by Patrick Auerbach

The federal prison on Alcatraz Island in the chilly waters of California’s San Francisco Bay housed some of America’s most difficult and dangerous prisoners during its years of operation from 1934 to 1963. Among those who served time at the maximum-security facility were the notorious gangster Al “Scarface” Capone (1899-1947) and murderer Robert “Birdman of Alcatraz” Stroud (1890-1963).

When prisoners boarded the boat for Alcatraz, they knew that they had reached the end of the line. Not only was this the toughest of all Federal penitentiaries, but it was also said to be virtually escape-proof. The island was a natural fortress, separated from the mainland by a narrow strait of freezing water and deadly currents. This prison was the U.S. government’s drastic ans...

Goin' Garf! (Memories of the Caribbean Island of San Andres)

by Lawrence Bohme

In 1975, London-born New York-bred adventurer Lawrence Bohme set up his crafts shop on the remote West Indian island of San Andres, a possession of Colombia. With the difference that its people are the English-speaking descendants of Jamaican slaves brought there by the British, before the island was ceded to what was then New Spain, in 1822. Lawrence evokes the islanders' unshakeably "Afro-Victorian" view of the world and themselves, their pungent and often graphic patois harkening back to pre-Industrial England as well as Africa, and their strange dream that the English will one day return to free them from the "panyas", that is, the "Spaniards", who for a century had already become Colombians... Here is the loving but unsentimental "guide book" which Lawrence wrote while living on this ...
