This book represents a forgotten part of the Civil War. It is Jefferson Davis’s secret man in London. At the outbreak of the Civil War, the Confederacy tapped James D. Bulloch to clandestinely acquire arms and ships for its navy. His first stop was the English capital that was hedging its bets on who would win the America’s War Between the States and willing to provide the Confederacy with the naval technology to fight the Union on the high seas. His mission continued for the length of the war and ended in grand failure, sending him into self-imposed exile in Britain. More than a decade later, his nephew, a young Theodore Roosevelt, visited Bulloch in London while researching his history of the naval battles of the War of 1812. Only after advising the twenty-three-year-old Roosevelt did Bulloch decide to write his own book, putting to the record one of the least understood aspects of the Civil War. Out of print and unavailable for more than forty years, Bulloch's dispassionate, meticulously researched story of building the Confederate navy stands as one of the most important military memoirs of the war between the North and the South.

This book tells the story of frustrated Union commanders who ordered a 500-foot-long underground tunnel dug in order to reach the fortifications of the long-besieged Confederates at Petersburg, Virginia. They then ordered it packed with 8,000 pounds of black powder and the fuse lit. The resulting explosion that resulted, created a 30-foot deep crater and the long awaited break in the Confederate line. Troops of the North charged in, only to be greeted by a hail of bullets from the South. Again and again, the Yankees charged, and again and again the unyielding Rebels drove them back. When it was finally all over, nearly an entire Northern division had been annihilated. This is the story of what happened on that terrible day of ultra-bad luck.

The author, Russell Bourne, shows how both sides made heroic efforts to reach put to each other, despite living in a war-torn world. The religious and cultural ideas of the Indians began to transform the colonists, turning many into pantheists, communal villagers, and woodland warriors. Similarity, many of the Native Americans became evangelical Christians, farmers, traders, and even commanders of large, nationalistic armies. Benjamin Franklin, marveling at the cooperation and mutual respect of the Six Nations of the Iroquois, suggested that colonial leaders should follow their lead. Yet, in the end, differences and treacheries drove them apart. Based on extensive historical research and consultation with indigenous people and other knowledgeable sources.

Geoffrey O’Gara has written a fantastic book about the Wind River which runs from the alpine lakes of the Continental Divide through the nestled valleys of the Northern Rocky Mountains and out onto high, wind-blown plains. More than a century ago, the federal government set aside 44 million acres for the Shoshone and Arapaho tribes. Today, this Indian Reservation has been reduced to only 2.3 million acres, but the battle over the control of this land --- and especially the river that runs through it --- is far from over. The author has chronicled a remarkable story that illuminates the larger, unfinished struggle for the ?heart? of the West. From the time of the Indian wars to the present day tribal council, to the complex struggle over water rights, these printed pages reveals a powerful and moving chronology that is far from over.

In this book, Brooke travels beyond the ?illusion of death? to learn the wisdom of ?heart-centered ascension?, she teaches us how to comfort our deepest fears, overcome our resistance to change, and renew our lives. She offers us ancient, yet new, ways to live in harmony with Earth’s awakening rhythms --- through unified prayer, music, spiritual dance, and ceremonial celebration. Perceptive, practical, and luminous!

Geoffrey O’Gara has written a fantastic book about the Wind River which runs from the alpine lakes of the Continental Divide through the nestled valleys of the Northern Rocky Mountains and out onto high, wind-blown plains. More than a century ago, the federal government set aside 44 million acres for the Shoshone and Arapaho tribes. Today, this Indian Reservation has been reduced to only 2.3 million acres, but the battle over the control of this land --- and especially the river that runs through it --- is far from over. The author has chronicled a remarkable story that illuminates the larger, unfinished struggle for the ?heart? of the West. From the time of the Indian wars to the present day tribal council, to the complex struggle over water rights, these printed pages reveals a powerful and moving chronology that is far from over.

Most people are not aware that women worked as silversmiths, marking everything from spoons to massive ceremonial pieces. Because of the practice of registering a maker?s marks at the local assay office of the goldsmith?s guild and the careful records kept at the Goldsmith?s Hall in London, it was easy to establish who these craftspeople were. This impressive book contains a wealth of information!

Known for her beautifully observed and illustrated books about the rivers, deserts, and mountains of the West, Ann Haymond Zwinger in this book, focuses on the guiding principles of her life as a naturalist. Even as she writes, she ?looks? with a notebook and a pencil, believing that ?to know the world intimately is the beginning of caring?. She easily moves from the details associated with the larger patterns of the natural environment that links one to the entire world, to the narrowed-down view of the filaments of mushrooms that accesses us to the inter-connectedness of life. As an artist, writer, and naturalist, she feels that her responsibility is to create the appropriate links between scientific natural history and the reader who can learn to love the land. This book is her testament to this belief.

This book provides dramatic comparisons of Native American and early colonial politics, history, and religion, and how these two cultures helped to create the pluralistic country in which we live. The author, Russell Bourne, shows how both sides made heroic efforts to reach put to each other, despite living in a war-torn world. The religious and cultural ideas of the Indians began to transform the colonists, turning many into pantheists, communal villagers, and woodland warriors. Similarity, many of the Native Americans became evangelical Christians, farmers, traders, and even commanders of large, nationalistic armies. Benjamin Franklin, marveling at the cooperation and mutual respect of the Six Nations of the Iroquois, suggested that colonial leaders should follow their lead. Yet, in the end, differences and treacheries drove them apart. Based on extensive historical research and consultation with indigenous people and other knowledgeable sources.

This book represents a forgotten part of the Civil War. It is Jefferson Davis’s secret man in London. At the outbreak of the Civil War, the Confederacy tapped James D. Bulloch to clandestinely acquire arms and ships for its navy. His first stop was the English capital that was hedging its bets on who would win the America’s War Between the States and willing to provide the Confederacy with the naval technology to fight the Union on the high seas. His mission continued for the length of the war and ended in grand failure, sending him into self-imposed exile in Britain. More than a decade later, his nephew, a young Theodore Roosevelt, visited Bulloch in London while researching his history of the naval battles of the War of 1812. Only after advising the twenty-three-year-old Roosevelt did Bulloch decide to write his own book, putting to the record one of the least understood aspects of the Civil War. Out of print and unavailable for more than forty years, Bulloch’s dispassionate, meticulously researched story of building the Confederate navy stands as one of the most important military memoirs of the war between the North and the South.

This book tells the story of frustrated Union commanders who ordered a 500-foot-long underground tunnel dug in order to reach the fortifications of the long-besieged Confederates at Petersburg, Virginia. They then ordered it packed with 8,000 pounds of black powder and the fuse lit. The resulting explosion that resulted, created a 30-foot deep crater and the long awaited break in the Confederate line. Troops of the North charged in, only to be greeted by a hail of bullets from the South. Again and again, the Yankees charged, and again and again the unyielding Rebels drove them back. When it was finally all over, nearly an entire Northern division had been annihilated. This is the story of what happened on that terrible day of ultra-bad luck.

Here, he and his grab-bag crew of eleven, departed in attempt to follow in the wake of Leif Erikson's triumphant voyage a thousand years before. The events of this contemporary voyage was often times thrilling, at times slapstick, sublime, and even outrageous.

From the canines who accompanied the rulers of ancient Egypt to those belonging to the Presidents of the United States, up to the time of Bill Clinton, their stories are here.

La Isabela (named in honor of the Queen of Spain), founded by Christopher Columbus during his second voyage, and was established among the indigenous Tainos people. This was the first Spanish settlement in the New World, and great hopes rested upon it. However, just five years after its founding, it was in ruins. The authors, relying upon their ten year archaeological investigation of the site, have written a fascinating book that stands out as the best on this subject. They conclude that the failure of this piece of civilization did not lay with Columbus as a poor planner, but because he attempted to establish a European cultural identity in an environment whose landscape and people did not respond well to this type of colonization.

Geoffrey O’Gara has written a fantastic book about the Wind River which runs from the alpine lakes of the Continental Divide through the nestled valleys of the Northern Rocky Mountains and out onto high, wind-blown plains. More than a century ago, the federal government set aside 44 million acres for the Shoshone and Arapaho tribes. Today, this Indian Reservation has been reduced to only 2.3 million acres, but the battle over the control of this land --- and especially the river that runs through it --- is far from over. The author has chronicled a remarkable story that illuminates the larger, unfinished struggle for the ?heart? of the West. From the time of the Indian wars to the present day tribal council, to the complex struggle over water rights, these printed pages reveals a powerful and moving chronology that is far from over.

Author Frank Clifford has vividly captured the challenges of the Divide today through some portraits of some memorable characters, while capturing the tide of change that threatens this environment as economic, social, and political forces threatens this uniquely unfettered population. A brilliant literary work!
