Over the Border By Herman Whitaker
eBook (ePub): $3.99
Over the Border by Herman Whitaker. Herman Whitaker (1867–1919) was a Californian writer. Whitaker and his family moved to the Piedmont hills in 1902 and took up residence in "The Bug... More > House," which is now Blair Avenue. His family became part of the Bohemian group including Jack and Bess London and George and Carrie Sterling. Novel about three bandits. The Hideout was “situated itself” midway of the desert, the great Mexican desert that is more varied in its heated monotony than a land of woods and fields and streams. Here it runs to sparse grass land under upland piñon; there spreads over wide, clean sands that reflect like burnished brass the intolerable glare of the sun. Now it marches for leagues with the yuccas that fling crazed arms and shrunken limbs like posturing dwarfs; again it is dotted with lonely mesas, monolithic masses that raise orange and vermilion facades out of a violet mirage.< Less

eBook (ePub): $3.99
Typee, a Romance of the South Sea is the first book by American writer Herman Melville, a classic in the literature of travel and adventure partly based on his actual experiences as a captive on the... More > island Nuku Hiva, which Melville spelled as Nukuheva, in the South Pacific Marquesas Islands, in 1842. The title comes from the name of a valley there called Tai Pi Vai. It was Melville's most popular work during his lifetime, but made him notorious as the "man who lived among the cannibals."

LIBOR, a rate fixed daily by the British Bankers Association is discovered to be manipulated fraudulently. In the trials of missteps, happenstance and intrigue in our coming to understand... More > international banks and their daily impact on our lives, we realize they have colluded to steal what is arguably, the largest single theft of modern man. Ironically as compared to the security of the world, the potential for terror in a Middle East overrun with illicit arms, munitions, WMD's, sanctioned monies and illegal petro-dollars appears worse. We find a fascinating and sobering assessment of how it comes to be that too big to fail is in fact too big to jail and we consider ourselves, in the midst of such malfeasance, lucky for the peace and modicum of order we do possess. From AIRSPACE, to LITTLEBEAR; COYOTES and THE ENGLISH TEACHER, Jack Dempsey and Henri Merceau exceed all expectations of great men doing great work, quietly.< Less

Not Quite Classics is a full color catalog of whimsical works of literature. Readers of all ages will chuckle along as they read the entertaining plot summaries and reviews of such would-be... More > classics as David Coppertone, The Call of the Mild, Scents and Sensibility, Larry Potter And The House of Detention, Jane Hair and nearly two dozen other improbable novels.
