  • Herndon's Lincoln
    Herndon's Lincoln

    $7.16

    Document Overview:
    The object of this work is to deal with Mr. Lincoln individually and domestically: as lawyer, as citizen, as statesman. Special attention is given to the history of his youth and early manhood, and while dwelling on this portion of his life the liberty is taken to insert many things that would be omitted or suppressed in other places. The endeavor is to keep Lincoln in sight all the time, to cling close to his side all the way through. I have no theory of his life to establish or destroy. Mr. Lincoln was my warm devoted friend.     - William H.

    Last of the Great Scouts

    $4.46

    Document Overview:
    Written in response to an increasing demand for an authentic biography of “Buffalo Bill,” this biography aims to provide a more accurate and encompassing history of the life of Col. William F. Cody. Told by Ms. Cody, his sister, this version differs from earlier attempts in that it draws upon the accounts of others to tell a more complete story, including Buffalo Bill’s early family history. As a result of these varying sources, this book portrays Buffalo Bill much more completely than any other. From his years of devotion to his widowed mother to his role in the westward expansion of our nation, this biography provides a well-rounded look at one of our most famous characters.

  • The $10 Billion Jolt
    The $10 Billion Jolt

    $17.96

    Document Overview:
    THE $10 BILLION JOLT explains how greedy energy companies used California’s badly-drafted laws to their advantage. And the book goes back into the history of regulatory “reform” in California to show how such trouble came about in the first place. According to Walsh, “A complete deregulation plan would probably have made things better. And some limited reforms to the regulations would have. But what we got was the worst of all worlds—and something only power companies looking to fleece the state would love.” But, Walsh emphasizes, the fleecing was legal under the rules in place at the time. In a separate proceeding that took place at the same time as the request to repeal the contracts, California sought $9 billion in refunds from electricity overcharges. FERC officials indicated that some refunds were due—but that they’d total more like $4 billion. And California would have to spend $3 billion of that to cover unpaid power bills still owed to electricity generators and...

    King Philip s War

    $4.46

    Document Overview:
    King Philip’s War is Ellis and Morris’ renowned story of the uprising that occurred after more than a half-century of peaceful co-existence with the English settlers. Metacomet, son of Massasoit of the Wampanoag tribe, led an uprising in 1675 that would later be known as King Philip’s War. The Natives’ resistance to increased English demand for food, land and the acceptance of English laws finally escalated into open revolt. The Nipmuck, Narragansett and Wampanoag tribes united to preserve their way of life in a doomed fight that killed hundreds of colonists and thousands of natives. Using original colonial documents, the authors researched published and unpublished archives and correspondence creating King Philips War. Though these pages the reader can relive the battles that eventually led to the demise of the Indian way of life in this era.
