Victorious! -- Queen's Champion, Prince Henry Sinclair By Gunnar Thompson
Paperback: $14.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
During the Late Middle Ages – in the 14th century – Queen Margaret Atterdag of Denmark welded together the bickering kingdoms of Scandinavia. Her alliance of Norway, Sweden, and Denmark... More > was called “the Kalmar Union.” As the Little Ice Age bore down upon the Nordic Settlement on Greenland, she called upon her Champion, Prince Henry Sinclair and Templar Knights, to rescue 4,000 stranded farmers. These Greenland refugees were brought south to new homes with Native Tribes along the Eastern Seaboard of North America. In later years, these imported Nordic farmers would constitute most of the “White Indians” that explorers and pioneers found in Nova Scotia, Massachusetts, and New York in the 17th century. Another problem arose in 1398 – when Vitalien Pirates from the North Sea settled into lairs along the Newfoundland Coast. In battles that were chronicled in Nicolo Zeno’s “Narrative” of c.1400, Henry Sinclair conquered all the pirates; and he was made “king” of Frisland Island.< Less

Twelve Years a Slave - The Narrative of Solomon Northup By C. Stephen Badgley & Solomon Northup
eBook (ePub): $10.95
Solomon Northup, age 33, a well-educated black man who was born into freedom, resided with his wife and three children in his native state of New York. Solomon was kidnapped and sold into slavery in... More > our nation's capital...Washington, D.C. Solomon was sold and transported to Louisiana where he spent twelve long years of suffering, degradation, whippings and hard labor as a slave. Slavery was an everyday fact of life from the earliest settlement of this country up to the end of the Civil War. In the 1840's there were many white people who opposed this concept of forced labor and the maltreatment of fellow human beings. The voices of these abolitionists were becoming louder...even in the heart of the south. One of these, Samuel Bass, a Canadian by birth, put his own life in jeopardy to free Solomon. This book gives, in chilling detail, an account of a way of life that hopefully will never, ever, occur again in this great country... the "Land of the Free!"< Less

A companion volume to 'Baron Kaneko and the Russo-Japanese War' (Lulu Press, 2009), this book relates the story of Baron Suematsu's one-man campaign in Europe using the spoken and written word... More > against the dangerous bogey of Yellow Peril which fueled European paranoia about China and Japan. Kaneko and Suematsu had similar missions, though Kaneko who was sent to the United States was also tasked with persuading President Theodore Roosevelt to broker a peace settlement in due course, while Suematsu was more directly involved in the fight against Yellow Peril which originated in Europe, and with strengthening the Anglo-Japanese Alliance. Kaneko was a lawyer with a knowledge of economics, while Suematsu was a historian with a literary bent who produced the first ever English translation of 'Genji Monogatari'. Both men were also politicians and close to the Meiji oligarch Ito Hirobumi. They were the two prongs of Japan's first ever public diplomacy initiative, and both succeeded to a considerable degree.< Less
