Adventures in the New Wilderness (paperback) By Lee Manchester
eBook (PDF): $0.00
Plenty of books have been written about hiking the heavily traveled trails of New York’s Adirondack Park. This is not one of them. “Adventures in the New Wilderness” contains essays... More > on the exploration of some little-known paths in the High Peaks region of Essex County — the ancient, abandoned road between Wilmington and Lake Placid; the old trails around Placid Lake, rarely used by anyone anymore; the tracks up Essex County’s lonely fire-tower mountains, where you’ll find some of the most spectacular (but least known) views of the High Peaks; and journeys into the cold, pristine world of the Adirondack woods in winter.

A Young Wife’s Experiences By Betty Adams
eBook (PDF): $4.83
(1 Ratings)
A first-person 1930s morality tale. Strange Confession of a Young and Naughty Wife Printed in Wilmington, Delaware, USA, in 1937. Reprinted by The Academy Club in 2010. A young wife who misbehaves... More > and is disciplined by her husband! The original of this charming and quite racy little booklet arrived with a tea-chest full of other second-hand erotica. It seemed to me to so well encapsulate the spirit of that age, as a primer on how to beat your wife for her own good, that it would be a waste to just sell it for the few pounds it would fetch. It was then only US$2, but from the pencilled price on the flyleaf, the original had already sold for US$25 somewhere. As I’ve seen very little else from that period, I can well believe it! So we’ve reprinted it here, as closely modelled on the original, in layout, typeface, etc. as I could manage. July 2010< Less

The Catcher's Mitt By J. Keith Brown
eBook (PDF): $5.95
A cherished item can be seen, even touched. It has no life of its own. Alan Johnson, after searching through boxes in his cluttered attic, found such an item. In itself, it wasn't anything special.... More > It was old and tattered. No one craved it. No fortune could be obtained through it. But, to him, it was priceless. Why? It contained memories. And consequently, as he held it, as he stared at it--he began to remember. It was the summer of 1975--when life forever changed. He was thirteen, living in the beautiful coastal city of Wilmington, North Carolina. His days were filled with playing baseball, hanging out with his best friend, and, like many other thirteen-year old boys, falling in love for the very first time. In most ways, life was normal--but normal doesn't always last.< Less
