Negro Tales By Joseph Seamon Cotter
eBook (ePub): $3.99
Negro Tales by Joseph Seamon Cotter, was first published in 1912. The Author is one of a race that has given scarcely anything of literature to the world. His modest tender of some Christmas verses... More > to me led to an inquiry which revealed his story of unpretentious but earnest and conscientious toil. He is wholly self-taught in English literature and composition. The obstacles which he has surmounted were undreamed of by Burns and other sons of song who struggled up from poverty, obscurity, and ignorance to glory. Joseph Seamon Cotter was born in Nelson County, Kentucky, in 1861, but has spent practically all his life in Louisville. He had the scantiest opportunity for schooling in childhood, though he could read before he was four years old. He was put to work early, and from his eighth to his twenty-fourth year earned his living by the roughest and hardest labor, first in a brick yard, then in a distillery, and finally as a teamster.< Less

Bound for New Orleans! John Halley’s Journal of Flatboat Trips from Boonesborough in 1789 & 1791 By Harry G. Enoch
Paperback: $10.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
John Halley’s journals provide the earliest first-hand accounts of the voyage down the Kentucky, Ohio and Mississippi rivers to New Orleans. Halley supplies insightful accounts of what became... More > one of Kentucky’s major early industries—shipping goods and produce by flatboat to the port of New Orleans—and he does so almost at the birth of that industry, just two years after Gen. James Wilkinson’s inaugural trip in 1787. Although rivermen often suffered at the hands of Native Americans and Spanish officials, Halley seems to have gotten along well with everyone he met. He describes every encounter and tells of shooting the rapids at the Falls of Ohio (Louisville), getting stuck on a sandbar, breaking his steering oar, almost losing one of the men in a pile of driftwood, and many other adventures. He was a keen observer and comments on hunting and fishing along the way, local flora and fauna, weather and river conditions, settlements, and notable landmarks. 52 pp, illustrated< Less
