Deep in the interior of the American Continent--more than a thousand miles from the shores of any sea--lies our scene. Thus begins Captain Mayne Reid's story. It is a story of hardship, love,... More > glory, and also of vengeance. His story of an "American" born in the northern Mexico, in what is now part of southern New Mexico, is thought to be one of the first novels of the Western genre. It is a tale of fierce love, pride and devotion, and ultimately of vengeance, developed from a tale told to Mayne Reid by someone intimately involved in the original events.< Less

The purpose of this volume is to give a summary of what is known of American Antiquities, with some thoughts and suggestions relative to their significance. It aims at nothing more. No similar work,... More > I believe, has been published in English or in any other language. What is known of American Archæology is recorded in a great many volumes, English, French, Spanish, and German, each work being confined to some particular department of the subject, or containing only an intelligent traveler’s brief sketches of what he saw as he went through some of the districts where the old ruins are found. Many of the more important of these works are either in French or Spanish, or in great English quartos and folios which are not accessible to general readers, and not one of them attempts to give a comprehensive view of the whole subject.< Less
Makers of Madness By Hermann Hagedorn
Paperback: $9.95
Ships in 3-5 business days
Makers of Madness was first published in 1914, the year the Great War began. It is haunting in its understanding of the madness surrounding the runup to the hostilities. Hagedorn understood, clearly,... More > how great wars are started. The mass mind of the people are manipulated by a few powerful people to achieve ends kept secret from the general populace, and, of course, those ends benefit the few, at the expense of the many. It has been thus throughout history. The First World War, as was the Second World War, and most, if not all, wars of the 20th Century were manipulated wars, just as Hagedorn shows in his remarkable play. While Makers of Madness might not work too well as a stage play, it would make a very powerful audio play. For those with no understanding of "directed history", we invite you to see it in action in Hagedorn's remarkable work.< Less

History of Morgan's Cavalry By Basil Duke

Ships in 6-8 business days.
The writer presents to the reading public the narrative of an arduous and adventurous military career, which, commencing at a period but little subsequent to the outbreak of the late civil war,... More > continued through the four eventful years. He has endeavored to make the work a correct and graphic representation of the kind of warfare of which Morgan was the author, and in which his men won so much celebrity. Strict accuracy has been attempted in the description of the military operations of which the book is a record, and it is hoped that the incidents related of personal daring and adventure will be read with some interest. The author regrets that, for reasons easily understood, the book is far less complete than he desired to make it. The very activity of the service performed by Morgan's Cavalry prevented the preservation of data which would be very valuable, and a full account of many important operations is therefore impossible. Limited space, also, forbids the mention of many brave deeds.< Less
