MY SMALL WORLD: Memoir

by Phillip Owen

A memoir searching for truth or fiction: do we have genetic memory in our cells that retain events from the lives of our distant ancestors? Can the DNA in our subconscious memory recall a wispy image of an event that happened during the lifetime of a long deceased ancestor? Butterflies and birds with brains much smaller than ours, navigate to points known only to their prior generations. It is odd that we humans are losing our senses to navigate, without using GPS.

This quest, to find truth or fiction of genetic memory, will delve into Owen Family history using written and verbal family history, personal letters, original poems and stories recorded by friends of the Owen family. These artifacts offer a glimpse of daily life in a Small World nestled in East Central Iowa, USA. ...

The Last of the Giants: How Christ Came to the Lumberjacks

by Harry Rimmer LL.D.

In its early years, Duluth was a gold mine for lumber barons. Men were employed as lumberjacks and worked like beasts, only to be tossed aside like used equipment when no longer needed. The grand forests were raped for their prime timber, the balance burned wastefully. The men were coarse and hard, but they had to be to survive. More than any other people that ever lived in our land, these old-time lumberjacks could truthfully say, “No man cared for my soul.”

That is, until God sent three men to the great Northwoods of our country ¬– Frank Higgins, John Sornberger, and Al Channer. These men blazed new trails of the Spirit and founded an empire for God. They reached a sector of humanity for which no spiritual work had ever been done before, storming the Northwoods with a...

Vlad the Impaler: A Life From Beginning to End

by Hourly History

Vlad the ImpalerThe character Count Dracula is well-known throughout the world. He is a dark, seductive, pale man wearing a cape. His gaze is quite literally captivating, and he has the strength of ten men. The story, written by Bram Stoker in 1897, has been retold hundreds of times, but is there a historical figure upon whom the character is based? Is there really a Dracula? Many scholars argue that Vlad III Dracula, also known as Vlad the Impaler, is the real Dracula. He was known in western Europe for his cruelty, most especially his penchant for impaling his victims. He is said to have killed somewhere between 40,000 and 100,000 people during his crusade to stop the Ottoman Empire from expanding into eastern Europe. He was equally harsh on the people he ruled and is said to have taken ...

The Missing Chapter: What Was Left Out of The Secret Journals Of Adolf Hitler

by A. G. Mogan

The Missing Chapter is just that - the chapter that was removed from The Secret Journals of Adolf Hitler during the editorial review. It centres around the Nazi Party Rally of 1927, illustrating the increasing power of the Nazis, the Torchlight procession, and the Dedication of Banners, all serving to instill into the minds of the people the idea of spirituality being attached to the Nazi cult. Hitler’s obsession with the Holy Lance, better known as The Spear of Destiny is also discussed. The spear was said to have magical powers, having once been used at the Crucifixion to wound the side of Christ. Hitler firmly believed that whoever had the Spear became invincible and could conquer the world.Enjoy!...

"I could hear the shells hissing past me, then all of a sudden I could hear one coming which sounded louder than the rest had done, then I knew perfectly well that it was mine, and before I could say anything I was struck with something that felt like a ton weight swinging from the sky... If ever I thought my last day had come that was the time."From the world changing moments, the grand, blasting battles and the writing of history, to the smaller moments, the intimacy of the trenches, the peeling of the onions, this journal recounts one man’s journey through the trenches of World War 1, and home again, forever changed....

I Learned to Dance In Reform School

by H.L. McCall

This book tells about my path to the Vocational School for Girls, in Helena, Montana, in the early 1950s, and my experiences with the staff and residents there. I had basically raised myself, and become a survival-oriented "street kid", selfish and emotionally stunted. At the School, I encountered Ruby Miller, the Administrator, who saw potential in me, and took me under her wing, probably more than she should have, with the limitations on staff-resident relationships being strict. Ruby ran the school not as a prison, but in a way that humanized her charges - she was accused by the Governor of "running a girls' finishing school". But she stood her ground, and introduced me, and the other girls, to real food, music, the stage, and caring emotions. I fell in love with her, and called he...

The He She Killer : The True Story of Eugenia Falleni

by Anna Michaels

In the early 1920s, a 5’ 4” woman in her 40s was incarcerated in Long Bay Gaol, New South Wales, Australia. A small woman, weighing around 126lb, and with the little finger of her right finger missing, Eugenia Falleni had just been found guilty of murder and sentenced to death.[1] As shocking as the murder was, it was nothing compared to the revelation that Eugenia Falleni had been living for the past 40 years as a man. In the 1920s, this diminutive woman had committed a crime considered far worse than that of taking someone’s life – she had committed a crime against nature, the crime of believing she was a man trapped inside a woman’s body....

9/11: Case Closed: The Day The CIA Hijacked America

by Michael Fleming

Americans have been arguing for over a decade about how the CIA blew up American buildings and led us into a fake war afterwards.

Now, it's time to put aside the details of the crime - and arrest the perpetrators with the official documentation.

9/11 families may now sue the CIA, and the NYPD and/or New York State Police may extradite them for the terrorist attacks committed against them and the rest of the world.

This short-book contains no "conspiracy theory" regarding how the crime may or may not have occurred. This book contains only the necessary information needed to convict the CIA of civil and criminal charges for the crime of 9/11 itself....

Australia and New Zealand Backpacked: Travelling in a land with totally relaxed people and overly agitated animals that would bite and poison you at any chance

Travelling in another can be intimidating. Having references and information from others, no matter who would always help.The problem is then what information would you need. Details covering places and hotels can be readily available on Internet sites as well as reviews. But what they do not do is to show a path or journey around and how much time you need.I planned my travels based on a Rough Guide book. Some used the major player in books, being the Lonely Planet guide. With mine, I could choose the best places and hotels that seemed most fitting from the maps given. The places I chose meant I did not have to travel too far out of the cities and kept walking to a minimum.But as I said, timing and planning a journey were completely on my shoulders. I hope to show my travels and experienc...
