Weird Radio: A Collection of Spy Transmissions, Unidentified Stations, and other Mysteries of the Airwaves

by Charles River Editors

*Includes pictures*Includes online resources and a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contentsFor more than a century, radio has been a part of people’s lives. No one alive today remembers a time when it hadn't always been there as a familiar, reliable source of information and entertainment. Today, it seems a bit mundane, overtaken by the Internet and satellite television. Even in the 1980s, the development of cable television (50 channels instead of five) and the start of MTV made radio seem quaint, and as many once claimed, “Radio is dead.”It wasn't, of course. Radio is still popular today, with as many stations as ever, and it remains a part of the world that is taken for granted. While not dead, its familiarity has made it seem a bit mundane, but people shouldn...

Adventures with the Amish

by Julie McDonald

I have always been fascinated with the simple lifestyle and culture of the Amish. My love of gardening, farm animals and community only added to my near obsession with them. This is the improbable, but true, story of how I, a Flagstaff, Arizona native, where there is not a single Amish person, have made many Amish friends in states across the Midwest. I have spent time visiting in their homes, and gardens, even staying overnight. I have enjoyed the most wonderful home cooked food imaginable and been the recipient of many home made goodies!You will find the book, a 30-40 minute read, interesting, educational and respectful of the Amish. The book will answer many questions you may have about the Amish. At the same, you will enjoy the humor, ( I hope) and be thoroughly entertained as I...

Before the Pilgrims: the Untold History Before Jamestown and Plymouth

by Pippa Pralen

An astounding history not learned in school. 40 years before the Jamestown colony, the Spanish founded a colony in Virginia. Early explorers and fisherman met Indians who spoke broken English. How was that possible? Irish monks living in caves in New England 900 AD? Viking sagas speaking of these Irish monks? In 1564 the French colony of Fort Caroline was founded in Florida. Colonies floundered and settlers vanished in lost colonies such as Roanoke. It wasn’t easy surviving in this “new world” in spite of the early glowing reports. Why did Jamestown and Plymouth colonies succeed when others failed?The 2nd half of this book explores the first successful English colonies of Jamestown and Plymouth and why they succeeded when others could not. Strange and curious facts: the fi...

Beyond the Wire: A Soldier's Perspective on the Iraq War

by Ross Bryan

Squinting from a one-two punch of exhaustion and the eerie faded-brass hue of a desert sun that doesn't take breaks and never seems to want to, I’m trying to decide just how in the hell I ended up here. Here, being Iraq. Cavalry Scout. In the Army for that matter. Perhaps if I thought long and hard enough I could remember. I knew for damn sure that I had no shortage of time to work it out.

My journey had started 6,250 miles to the west in a crumbling Ohio mill town called Ashtabula. I had spent the better part of a year at a 3rd shift job in a factory on the far end of town, trying not to lose myself in the mullets and meth of the American Midwest. Then came 9/11. The images of those airplanes slamming into the NYC skyline like lawn darts playing on a constant loop on CNN. ...

He was not born in the colonies at all. He was born in the West Indies, the son of a woman of French descent who had left her husband for another man. As an illegitimate child, Hamilton could not be educated in the local church school, so businessmen, impressed by his remarkable intelligence, sent him to America for his schooling. The American Revolution would interrupt his vacation but accelerate his promotion to the national stage from his service as George Washington’s aide-de-camp to his position as the new nation’s firs...

by Captivating History

Explore the Captivating History of Benjamin FranklinFree History BONUS Inside!Benjamin Franklin was a Founding Father of America and had an enormous impact on America as it is today. In addition to that, there are many little-known facts about the man that is Benjamin Franklin. Unlike many of the other Founding Fathers, he started out in humble circumstances.

From a young age, Benjamin Franklin fought for the rights of America at home and abroad. Yet, he bore the burdens of leadership and never shirked nor faltered in his mission. His greatest asset was his charm and friendliness, but he had his detractors as well, and felt the emotiona...

The Prison of Democracy: Race, Leavenworth, and the Culture of Law

by Sara M. Benson

At publication date, a free ebook version of this title will be available through Luminos, University of California Press’s Open Access publishing program. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more. Built in the 1890s at the center of the nation, Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary was designed specifically to be a replica of the US Capitol Building. But why? The Prison of Democracy explains the political significance of a prison built to mimic one of America’s monuments to democracy. Locating Leavenworth in memory, history, and law, the prison geographically sits at the borders of Indian Territory (1825–1854) and Bleeding Kansas (1854–1864), both sites of contestation over slavery and freedom. Author Sara M. Benson argues that Leavenworth reshaped the design of punishment in America...

A Soldier's Diary 1893-1918: From Philadelphia to the Philippines,Crawfish Jesse Tells It Like It Was

by Jesse Davisson

Digging into one’s family history can reveal unusual surprises. In my case, I recently discovered my great-grandfather, Jesse C.

His diary follows his subsequent adventures––from learning to ride horse with the 7th Cavalry and befriending Indian Scouts to surviving ambushes and water-boarding prisoners––all while serving in the American Indian Wars, the Spanish-American War, the Philippine Insurrection and World War I. A Soldier’s Diary 1893-1918: From Philadelphia to the Philippines, Crawfish Jesse Tells It Like It Was reveals the good and the bad in our human character. I...

Seth Kinman: The Life and Legacy of the Famous Californian Mountain Man

by Charles River Editors

*Includes pictures*Includes online resources and a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contentsBy the golden age of the mountain man in the mid-19th-century, there were perhaps only 3,000 living in the West. Their origins were disparate, although they included many Anglo-Americans. A good number hailed from wilderness regions of Kentucky and Virginia and throughout the newly purchased Louisiana Territory, which occupied the entire central section of the continent. French Canadians traveled from the north to work in the fur trade, while Creole-Europeans represented approximately 15% of the men known to be living the isolated mountain life. Others were of Métis, Spanish, American, Black, Indian, and mixed-blood origin, most often Iroquois or Delaware. Most came to the West ...

Vicksburg Redeemed: An Assessment of Confederate Combined Operations During the Baton Rouge Campaign of 1862

by Michael R. Brasher

"Where is the Arkansas?"That was the question the men of the Confederate Expeditionary Force under General John Breckinridge were asking as they saw the Federal troops retreating to the cover of the Federal fleet at Baton Rouge in August of 1862. After a hard and bloody fight, they had driven the Union troops back to the banks of the Mississippi River and killed their commander. The CSS Arkansas was supposed to have arrived to help deliver the coup de grace. But where was she?The Baton Rouge campaign is generally considered just a little known sideshow of the later 1863 Vicksburg campaign. This book will shatter that view.

ECHOES OF SLAVERY: Former Slaves Share Personal Accounts Of A Life In Bondage

by Cotter Bass

During the Depression years between 1936 and 1938, the WPA Federal Writers' Project (FWP) sent out-of-work writers in seventeen states to interview ordinary people in order to document their life stories. Initially, only four states involved in the project (Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and Virginia) focused on collecting the stories of people who had once been held in slavery. In 1937 the WPA directed the remaining states involved in the project to conduct interviews with former slaves as well. Federal field workers were given instructions regarding the kinds of questions to ask their informants and how to capture their dialects, the result of which may occasionally be offensive to contemporary readers. The field workers often visited the people they interviewed twice in order to gath...
