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. ...

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.

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.

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...

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.

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.

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 ...

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...
