America gave up the three R's and got back the three I's: ignorance, illiteracy, and illegitimacy. Parents of the postwar years wanted a “kinder and gentler nation.” Americans were... More > vulnerable to the arguments of behavioral psychologists. These came at them through articles and books touting appealing but unworkable philosophies of child management that denounced adult guidance and leadership. These messages were later repeated through colleges of education in the form of courses in "educational psychology.'' Today’s schools promote success without achievement, ethics without religion, and character without morals. Clinical-sounding labels such as “emotionally handicapped” may make failure more palatable. They certainly make it more permanent.< Less

The good guys win sometimes. Not always, of course. They lost big in the Second World War. Even when the bad guys win, they sometimes grow careless and later become losers. Look what happened to the... More > communists of eastern Europe in the 1990s. Could the same thing happen to their erstwhile WWII allies in America? Serpent’s Walk explores that possibility. It assumes that Hitler’s warrior elite—the SS—didn’t give up their struggle for a White world when they lost the Second World War. Instead their survivors went underground and adopted some of the tactics of their enemies: they began building their economic muscle and buying into the opinion-forming media. A century after the war they are ready to challenge the democrats for the hearts and minds of White Americans, who have begun to have their fill of government-enforced muti-culturalism and “equality.” The resulting conflict comes close to destroying the world, and it provides some exciting reading.< Less

More > genealogy and a variety of historical research on the life and times of our ancestors through the generations, the author brings the past to life once more with this semi-fictional re-telling, at once both historically interesting and emotionally engaging. This segment of the story shows depictions of New England factory life (Mill Girls), the hunting and fur trade, farm life in Vermont and several key battles of the American Revolution. Natural hardships are overcome, unexpected losses are endured and the survivors are left putting the pieces together, looking for a reason to carry on. Though based on a real family descending from the "Lovering" namesake, this could very well be any American family and its founding descendants. Perhaps best of all, it reminds us that each family history is really an ongoing love story.< Less
