Around the World in 80 Recipes from the 1800s (The Flavor Fairy Collection Book 8)

by Fae Merrie

In Jules Verne’s classic novel “Around the World in 80 Days” the unflappable Phileas Fogg set out to prove that he could do exactly what the title says—an almost impossible feat in 1872 when the story was first published. An airplane would have helped him tremendously, but they hadn’t been invented yet, so Phileas had to rely mainly on boats and trains to get around (plus an elephant at one point). He also had to eat, of course, but Verne didn’t offer many details on that score—he was writing an adventure tale after all, not a cookbook. Still, one has to wonder what a world traveler of the 19th century might have dined upon en route. Which is how this book came about. Here you’ll find an eclectic collection of 80 antique recipes from the time period in which Jules Verne liv...

Ryker (Kings of Korruption MC Book 1)

by Geri Glenn

Charlotte

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve taken care of everyone around me, including my self-centered older sister, Anna. When her poor choices make us targets of the Devil’s Rejects Motorcycle Club, I grab her and we run like hell. A new city, a new job, a new life. It’s almost perfect – and then I meet Ryker.

He’s gorgeous, rugged and too cocky for his own damned good. But he’s a biker – exactly the type of man I’ve been running from. I have no business getting involved with a man like him. Too bad I can’t get him out of my head.

Ryker

As V.P. of the Kings of Korruption MC, I know all about violence and loss. In my world, getting involved with a woman never turns out well. Avoiding commitment isn’t something I ...

The ancient Vietnamese life in which Tung was raised is being torn apart. It is not enough to work hard and grow rice anymore. Now every farmer in Mai Dong has to pick a side.

The French or the Communists.

"They are going to murder your father."

Intelligence, humility and graft made Que an honorable figure in Mai Dong. His values ensured the family's survival through famine and flood. They will not protect him against the Communists, who need class-enemy victims for their land reform campaign.

Tung becomes protector and provider for the family, who struggle to stick together as World War Two, the French Indochinese War, and the American War tear his country apart over forty years.

Israel's Edge: The Story of The IDF's Most Elite Unit - Talpiot

by Jason Gewirtz

How will Israel keep its strategic edge over an increasingly dangerous Iran? Israel has been preparing for this day by creating a special and secretive IDF unit called Talpiot.

Instead of being trained to fight, the few soldiers each year selected for Talpiot are taught how to think. In order to join this unit they have to commit to being in the army for ten years, rather than the three years a normal soldier serves.

Talpiots are taught advanced level physics, math and computer science as they train with soldiers from every other branch of the IDF. The result: young men and women become research and development machines. Talpiots have developed battle ready weapons that only Israel's top military officers and political leaders know about. They have also dramatical...

The Knights Templar: The True and Surprising Story Of Histories Most Secretive Order

by Patrick Auerbach

Arguably one of the most provocative, puzzling, and misunderstood organizations of medieval times, the legendary Knights Templar have always been shrouded in a veil of mystery, while inspiring popular culture from Indiana Jones to Dan Brown.

The order of the Knights Templar was founded by Hugh de Payens, a French nobleman from the Champagne region, along with eight of his companions, in Jerusalem around 1119.

They originally consisted of a group of knights who protected Christian pilgrims travelling to the Holy Land against attack from brigands and Saracen pirates, after the crusaders captured Jerusalem in 1099.

The order's full name was the "Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon".

They were given quarters next to t...

"Guns Don't Kill People, People Kill People": And Other Myths About Guns and Gun Control

by Dennis A. Henigan

Debunking the lethal logic behind the pervasive myths that have framed the gun control debateThe gun lobby’s remarkable success in using engaging slogans to frame the gun control debate has allowed it to block lifesaving gun legislation for decades. But is there any truth to this bumper-sticker logic? Dennis Henigan exposes the mythology and misguided thinking at the core of these pro-gun catchphrases, which continue to have an outsized influence on public attitudes toward guns and gun control. He counters the gun lobby’s messages by weaving together the most compelling current research and insights drawn from the grim reality of deadly gunfire in our homes and communities. Henigan charts a new path toward ending the American nightmare of gun violence.Myths Include:“When guns are out...

Hacksaw Ridge : The True Story of Desmond Doss

by Ronald Kruk

According to Doss's account in a documentary film titled "The Contentious Objector", as he rescued soldiers one-by-one, he breathed into the air with each go-around, "Lord, please help me get one more."The modest man of faith claims to have saved 50 wounded soldiers from certain death. His comrades claim that he saved 100. President Harry S. Truman presented him with the Congressional Medal of Honor upon his return to the United States, for his heroics on Okinawa, and the citation credits him with saving 75 lives, splitting the difference."From a human standpoint, I shouldn't be here to tell the story," said Doss in an interview with the Richmond Times-Dispatch. "No telling how many times the Lord has spared my life." During World War II, 16,112,556 American soldiers served their country a...

Worshiped for over three-fifths of recorded history, ancient Egypt's Gods and Goddesses are among the most fascinating of human civilization.

The lives of pharaohs and commoners alike were dominated by the need to honor, worship, and pacify the huge pantheon of deities. From lavish tomb paintings and imposing temple reliefs to humble household shrines, countless tributes throughout Egypt reflect the richness and complexity of their mythology.

This book examines the Egyptian gods and goddesses - from minor household figures such as Bes and Taweret to the all-powerful deities Amun and Rethat made Egypt the most completely theocratic society of the ancient world, and made Egyptians, according to Herodotus, "more religious than any other people."

Ancient Egypt: A Guide to the Gods, Pharaohs, Dynasties, and Traditions of Ancient Egypt

by Patrick Auerbach

Ancient Egypt's impact on later cultures was immense. You could say that Egypt provided the building blocks for Greek and Roman culture, and, through them, influenced all of the Western tradition. Today, Egyptian imagery, concepts, and perspectives are found everywhere; you will find them in architectural forms, on money, and in our day to day lives. Many cosmetic surgeons, for example, use the silhouette of Queen Nefertiti (whose name means “the beautiful one has come”) in their advertisements.

Ancient Egyptian civilization lasted for more than 3000 years and showed an incredible amount of continuity. That is more than 15 times the age of the United States, and consider how often our culture shifts; less than 10 years ago, there was no Facebook, Twitter, or Youtube.

But walking along “The Lane” in modern times, it’s not hard to transport yourself back a couple of hundred years to the tiny hamlet of the past, surrounded as it was, on all sides, by rural England. And through the mists of time it’s possible to glimpse a fascinating story. The origins of Awsworth go back at least to Saxon times. After that, as the centuries progressed, it came under some dramatic influences: Lenton Priory, whose Prior was executed during the Dissolution, the Lords Cromwell, the Babbington family which met disaster after plotting against Elizabeth, the Sheffields of Butterwick, the Willoughby family of Risley, the Earl of Stamford and more.

The Cursed Day: Eyewitness Accounts of the Nazi Massacres during Operation Kalavryta

by Antonis Kakoyannis

In December 1943, after months battling resistance fighters, Nazi units marched through the mountains of the Greek Peloponnese, conducting reprisals against Greek civilians. The operation reached its brutal conclusion with the massacre of 438 civilian men and boys in Kalavryta. On that cursed day in December, Kalavryta became one of the martyr towns of World War II. As the years passed, the need to record eyewitness accounts became increasingly urgent. Driven by the need to document the true stories, the author interviewed over seventy people who lived through those tumultuous times. The author himself witnessed much of this conflict firsthand as a teenager living in the region. He now brings these events to life through the personal narratives of his own family and other townspeople and v...

Having been born in the English colony of Massachusetts in 1735, he not only witnessed a new nation emerging from the shell of infancy, but he also participated in its growing pains. Adams was a man who was frequently asked to assume roles in which he had little experience, like that of a diplomat to France and England.

A call to Haiti's awakening, success and strategies for a better future

This book highlights in deep the incredible accomplishment of the Haitian nation, being the only ever slave revolution leading to fighting off slavery and attaining independence through bloodshed. The slaves of Haiti played a great role in this after many years under French brutality.In comparison to other Caribbean nations facing the same state of slavery, Haitian slaves were not allowed to trade internationally for more than 25 years until they agreed to pay huge debts to the French in 1827. Hence they actually had to repay their former ‘masters’ for the loss of the ‘masters’ ‘property.From a succinct yet enlightening journey through the history of Haiti’s land, to the series of events that earned the nation independence at last, this book is a manifesto declaring the glory a...

Battle of Stalingrad* * *Download for FREE on Kindle Unlimited + Free BONUS Inside!* * *Read On Your Computer, MAC, Smartphone, Kindle Reader, iPad, or Tablet.The Battle of Stalingrad, perceived by historians as the most important battle of World War II and regarded by Russians as the most significant battle in their country’s history, cannot be viewed solely as a military engagement between two powerful, long-time foes. The Soviet Union, which had climbed to power from the shambles of the 1917 Revolution that saw communism overthrow the czar, and Germany, which had risen from the ashes of World War I’s Treaty of Versailles, certainly had a complicated history. Stalingrad was a battle between the Allies and the Axis Powers; it was a struggle between the Soviet Union and Germany for vic...

Color In Mind: The Golden The Black And The White In Islam

by r da costa vaughan

PREFACEIslam fathered color prejudice and racism. The Arabic Qur'an was the catalyst for the conception, the nurturing, and the religious tending of the ideas behind color racism. Subsequently these negative ideas were exported globally. This is the thesis of this book.The House of Islam, or dar al-Islam in Arabic, is no one particular location. It exists where anyone who has submitted to the Islamic belief system bows in prayer five times daily. Within these invisible temples, those of Islamic faith repeat the ritual statement of witness to their faith: "There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is the Messenger of God."In addition to prayer rituals, Islamic practitioners annually must fast during the lunar month of Ramadan. They all are required to financially support their faith, and final...

The Oldest Vocation: Christian Motherhood in the Medieval West

by Clarissa W. Atkinson

According to an old story, a woman concealed her sex and ruled as pope for a few years in the ninth century. Pope Joan was not betrayed by a lover or discovered by an enemy; her downfall came when she went into labor during a papal procession through the streets of Rome. From the myth of Joan to the experiences of saints, nuns, and ordinary women, The Oldest Vocation brings to life both the richness and the troubling contradictions of Christian motherhood in medieval Europe.After tracing the roots of medieval ideologies of motherhood in early Christianity, Clarissa W. Atkinson reconstructs the physiological assumptions underlying medieval notions about women's bodies and reproduction; inherited from Greek science and popularized through the practice of midwifery, these assumptions helped s...

by Dale Coleman

On September 13, 1965, Tacoma Community College opened its doors to the public. The founding of the College was the culmination of four years of coordinated effort, steadfast leadership and grassroots community support. Built around the idea that educational opportunity is a critical component of a thriving community, TCC set forth on a mission to bring high-quality, affordable education to all, without regard to means or circumstance.

Emphatic (Soul Serenade Book 1)

by Kaylee Ryan

There comes a point in your life where you have to say enough is enough.

I wasted my college years on a guy who played with my head, played with my heart. I was blinded by the fairytale, the one that didn’t exist.

The day I gave up on the idea of happily ever after, my focus became me. Moving forward and establishing my career.

Until one day…

I didn’t expect him. My new boss, a six foot two, inked rock god. I believed I was working for the record label, I was wrong.

It’s impossible for me to keep my distance, believe me I’ve tried. He’s not who I expected him to be. He’s so much more he’s…Emphatic

Easter Island: The Mystical "Stone Giants"

by Cheryl Leonard

Easter Island is the world’s most isolated inhabited island, located in Chile,in the Southeastern Pacific Ocean. It is famous for its 887 mysterious megalith stone statues called Moai. The Polynesian settlers to the island began colonization from a limited resource base, and created an advanced society of religious and artistic culture. From their monumental sculpture and stone work skills, they created the stone giant statues, of which many still stand today. Unfortunately, the flourishing society did not last,and the most common theory for the decline of this society was deforestation of the land, leading to war between the factions, famine, and ultimately the collapse of the society.

The late Chris Kyle, of “American Sniper” fame, is eighth on the list. There is a South African special forces sniper that is sixth on the list whose name is withheld as is a Norwegian Army Sniper.

Aaron Elson went to a reunion of the 712th Tank Battalion from World War II in 1987 hoping to find veterans who remembered his father, who died seven years earlier. He found three, and was so moved by the stories the veterans shared among themselves, yet rarely told their families, that he returned two reunions later with a tape recorder and never missed another reunion. Long before "Saving Private Ryan" and "The Greatest Generation" got an aging population of World War II veterans to open up about their experiences, these men shared stories with Elson that c...

Prepare to be frightened...very frightened by these extraordinarily scary places most of us probably never knew existed!
The world around us is a scary place. With danger lurking around so many corners, the threats we can explain are often easily quantified and dismissed. Rather, it is the unexplainable, the paranormal and the strange which present the biggest threats to our psychological well-being. All across the planet, certain places and buildings have come to represent these abnormal and unexplainable phenomena. From ghosts to genocides, brutal murders to witches’ covens, these locations are both hyper specific and universal.
In almost every town, village or city, there is often an area where people are wary. A certain building people say is haunted, or a home they know ...

The Ramasun Files

by M Burton

After writing the stories that became Tales of Ramasun I and II I thought I was done with all things Ramasun, but I wasn’t. My mind kept wandering back to those long gone times and a few more stories were remembered, some with the assistance of old friends and colleagues from those times who read my books and got in touch with me. I put these new stories in my files but there weren’t enough of them for another book. In the meantime I came up with a number of stories that weren’t about Ramasun, but were inspired by Ramasun. Now is the time to clean out those files. It’s a mixed bag, but I hope you will find something to enjoy. The first eight stories are related to Ramasun in one way or another. The last six are pure fiction, in the ‘inspired by Ramasun’ category. Many ...

The Epic of Kings- Hero Tales of Ancient Persia (Wisehouse Classics - The Authoritative Edition)

by Ferdowsi Tusi, Abuʾl-Qasim

The Shahnameh, also transliterated as Shahnama (“The Book of Kings”), is a long epic poem written by the Persian poet Ferdowsi between c. 977 and 1010 CE and is the national epic of Greater Iran.

It tells mainly the mythical and to some extent the historical past of the Persian Empire from the creation of the world until the Islamic conquest of Persia in the 7th century. Today Iran, Azerbaijan, Afghanistan and the greater region influenced by the Persian culture (such as Georgia, Armenia, Turkey and Dagestan) celebrate this national epic.The work is of central importance in Persian culture, regarded as a literary masterpiece, and definitive of t...

Ancient Rome: The Rise Of The Roman Empire

by Patrick Auerbach

Beginning in the eighth century B.C., Ancient Rome grew from a small town on central Italy’s Tiber River into an empire that at its peak encompassed most of continental Europe, Britain, much of western Asia, northern Africa and the Mediterranean islands. Among the many legacies of Roman dominance are the widespread use of the Romance languages (Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Romanian) derived from Latin, the modern Western alphabet and calendar and the emergence of Christianity as a major world religion. After 450 years as a republic, Rome became an empire in the wake of Julius Caesar’s rise and fall in the first century B.C. The long and triumphant reign of its first emperor, Augustus, began a golden age of peace and prosperity; by contrast, the empire’s decline and fall b...

Mein Side of the Story: Key World War 2 Addresses of Adolf Hitler

by M King

*145 Pages / 100 Illustrations*
Our system of justice grants 'prima facie' murderers, rapists and serial killers the opportunity to speak, does it not? Indeed, convicted killers like Charles Manson, David ‘Son of Sam’ Berkowitz, Richard Speck, Jeffrey Dahmer and others have done televised interviews. Even the erroneous and dangerous ranting of Karl Marx is taught, no, glorified, in American Universities.

So, what is so gosh-darn dangerous about merely presenting the opinion of Hitler’s Germany? If that opinion is as evil and as fallacious as it is said to be, then why not present the full story, and then logically refute it? Truth is its own defense, so what is there to fear about simply hearing “the other side”? Do we really believe in “free speech” and ...

DONALD TRUMP: Who Is Donald Trump? Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton's Race To The White House

by Michael Brixton

As the 2016 election bears down on us there are two potential candidates that stand out far more than the rest. One is a member of a political dynasty that has had a member of the family either in office or running for office almost nonstop since the 1970’s. Hillary Clinton has been working up to the Presidency for quite a long time and her resume is longer and more robust than perhaps any other candidate.

Foundations of Buddhism

by Helena Roerich

The Great Gotama gave to the world a complete Teaching of the perfect construction of life. Each attempt to make a god of the great revolutionist, leads to absurdity.Previous to Gotama there was, of course, a whole succession of those who bore the common welfare, but their teachings crumbled to dust in the course of millenniums. Therefore the Teaching of Gotama should be accepted as the first teaching of the laws of matter and the evolution of the world.Contemporary understanding of the community permits a wondrous bridge from Gotama Buddha up to the present time. We pronounce this formula neither for extolling nor for demeaning, but as an evident and immutable fact.The law of fearlessness, the law of the renunciation of property, the law of the evaluation of labor, the law of the dignity ...
