I Slept in Hitler's Bed: A Memoir by Jay Balter

by Jay Balter

Jay Balter did not have an easy life growing up in mid-20th century Brooklyn. His father, known to his mother only as “that son of a bitch” was many things—a music publisher who gambled away the entire family fortune he made on Broadway, a philander, a gangster, a deadbeat dad—but mostly, he was absent. Jay comes of age in the Orthodox Jewish community of Crown Heights with his mentally ill twin sister, his angry older brother, and his beloved mother, an early feminist who will do anything to support her family. In 1958, at 18 years old, he enters the US Army. During his basic training in Georgia, Jay’s anger over both American racism and the European Holocaust comes to the surface, and he vows, “I was prepared to teach those rebels a lesson. I was not prepared to roll over and...

CIA Mission to an Internal HELL: A True Story of Intrigue

by Fairlie Sweet

This is the strange and yet factual story of an American soldier’s voluntary involvement in a mission to provide training to Montagnard Tribesmen in their villages somewhere in the mountainous terrain of Vietnam near the Laotian border. It has been more than fifty years since the mission took place, and with the secrecy recently lifted on the story it can now be told by one of the few persons involved.The story chronicles a virtually unknown part of the intrigue and courage associated with a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) operation that simply did not or could not function as it was intended to do.Later research indicates that the operation probably involved persons by the hundreds, mostly young soldiers, and by early 1961 the death rate was approaching the point of raising suspicions...

Berkeley 1967-2017 Summer of Love (Visit Berkeley)

by Michael A. Estrada

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...

The Jesuit Reports from North America, 1610-1764

by John Swapceinski

A modern English translation of the Jesuit Relations, actual reports from North America by French Jesuits concerning their experiences with Native American tribes during the years 1610-1764. This book is 50% longer than the Bible, containing a tremendous amount of historical content spanning over 100 years.

Stories of Europeans' first encounters with native Americans, exploration, warfare, murder, disease, torture, and cannibalism; all these are contained in the massive document you hold in your hands, and it all occurred right here in North America during the 1600s.

In early 2014, I found online a set of documents called the "Jesuit Relations". These reports, called "Relations", as in "relating" events to someone, were written by an order of French Catholic prie...

AN AMERICAN DEVOTIONAL:: FROM THE VOICES OF OUR FOUNDING MOTHERS AND FATHERS

by Scott Campbell Brown

“Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.” These words from Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address are the foundation for this short book to deepen your understanding of our American heritage. Consider these first words of the Gettysburg Address. For many, they comprise a mere introduction to the famous speech by Abraham Lincoln. Yet, taken on their own, they have a profound meaning. They speak to the actions and sacrifices of the Founding Mothers and Fathers, based on the concepts of Liberty and Equality. In this one sentence, Lincoln demonstrates the inspiring wisdom and humanity of our Founders.Such wisdom and humanity appear to be lacking today...

My Life Among the Indians (Illustrated)

by George Catlin

George Catlin was a fascinating figure of the nineteenth century, an artist-explorer who ventured deep into the wilds of the newly discovered Americas to paint the rapidly vanishing indigenous populations, their leaders, warriors, medicine men and scenes from their modes of life. The gifts Catlin received over the years from these remote peoples formed the basis for a vast, important collection which Catlin loaned to the world’s biggest museums, together with his portraits. Because of the stunning, life-like likenesses he created, the awed tribes dubbed Catlin Te-hee-pe-nee Washed which means The Great White Medicine.This new 2017 edition of My Life Among the Indians is illustrated with many examples of Catlin’s artwork from this period....

by Danny Z. Kiel

Discovered in an estate, a newspaper printed on a borrowed press in the aftermath has been digitized and presented in full for the first time in 103 years.
