The American West remains a period of fascination for many. In the relatively unknown years between 1828 and 1853, however, it experienced a critical transition, one that would define the emergence of the West for years to come. Possessing remarkable historical and literary aptitude, Echoes from the West contains interpretively written factual stories of Americans, native and new, that occurred during this important twenty-five-year period. From tales of years in Oregon Country from fur trapper Jedediah Smith and fur trader John McLoughlin to stories of Hal Kelly, an agent of the Oregon Colonizing Company, and his new recruit, Nathaniel Wyeth, gifted historian Verda Spickelmier brings the tales of these intrepid men to vibrant life. In addition, Spickelmier shows the political impact of this westward expansion in Washington DC. Vivid snapshots of John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson, and Martin Van Buren provide an intriguing glimpse into the inner workings of the government. As the country rapidly expands and moves inexorably toward division over slavery, each person’s story becomes woven into the fabric of an energetic, yet struggling nation. Engaging and eloquent, Echoes from the West offers deep insight into a subject not often studied while simultaneously giving a delightfully imaginative twist to history.

As an ex-GI, shopping for some meaning in my seventh decade, I was drawn to the three journals I had kept during World War II. In these yellowing pages, still covered and protected with 1944 brown paper grocery bags, I had hoped to find something about my youth that would, perhaps, illuminate and even explain the exciting journey I am, at the moment, slowly completing. Surprisingly, rereading my teen-age entries (written in blue-black Watermans ink and with lots of misspelling), this older edition was buoyed-up by the sensitivity and insight of his youthful counterpart. When the war in Europe ended, and with our military converted to an Army of Occupation, we young kids in uniform had to make rapid psychological adjustments. Our focus changed from serving our country to, possibly, serving our own needs? Sexuality rapidly rose to first place. The German girls were beautiful. Why fight it? I fell in love with a young woman whom my family would consider a Nazi. (Wasnt every German a Nazi?) What was I going to do when I got back? Bring my girlfriend? Tell my Jewish parents and friends in the Bronx that despite the death camps the Germans could still be pretty nice, intelligent people...even loveable? Young people reading this book will be impressed by how the thoughts of an 18-year old in 1944 are still vitally significant today. Older folks might learn to re-connect with the kid still within them.

Shortly after I had returned from a foreign trip some years ago, an old friend saw me and quickly noticed that I had gone partially bald. He was startled. So, he spontaneously yelled a seemingly tough question at me: What happened to the hairs on your head? Spontaneously too, I yelled an answer back at him: Nature took them in place of the wisdom that I couldnt pay for! And we teased and laughed. My friend thought I had joked, but I knew I hadnt. However, Ill leave the judgment to you. By the time youre done digesting the substance of this more than compelling masterpiece, Id like to know your stand. Had I joked or had I not?

Arnošt Lustig's fiction has always been too close to the facts for comfort. In The House of Returned Echoes, he pays tribute to the life of his father, who died in Auschwitz in 1944. In Prague in the difficult time between the wars, a man fights to keep his family and his business alive despite anti-Semitism and economic hardship. Emil Ludvig has always relied on the simple rules of his family and the basic laws of civilization to counteract his misfortunes, and being a decent man himself, he refuses to believe that the Nazi threats will be carried out. Yet, he also becomes a victim of the camps, and his story resonates with both Lustig's personal experiences and the shared memories of the Holocaust.

This book is a plain spoken series of vignettes based on the author’s memories of growing up in the hills and coal mining towns of the far western part of Virginia in the 1940’s. It includes his intensely personal recollections of the great Appalachian migration to the big cities of the Northern Midwest in the 1950’s. Additional vignettes of his experiences later in life are included to demonstrate the enduring nature of the influence of his Appalachian upbringing. History buffs will enjoy the verbal snapshots of the schools, churches, and everyday life in the post-war Appalachian backwoods. Others will find these “Echoes” inspirational, as they have an unintentional but definite “Horatio Alger, Jr.” like quality; and depict the author’s personal journey from boyhood in an Appalachian ”hollar” to being a physician who has been named one of the “Best Doctors” in America.

"[This] novel has immense power in its climax," said The Encyclopedia of Fantasy about Darrell Schweitzer's 1982 novel, THE SHATTERED GODDESS. Now, at last, here's the companion volume to that work, a cycle of eleven stories set "in the time of the death of the Goddess." This is an Earth of the far future, when the planet has declined into chaos, and darkness looms at the end of human history. Here you'll meet...a dadar, a wizard's shadow attempting to become a man; two sorcerers grotesquely transformed by their fratricidal hatred; a musician who becomes the lord of death; a boy-priest consumed by divine visions; and a witch who loves a god, among many others. Here's strangeness, wonder, and terror in the tradition of Clark Ashton Smith's Xothique or Jack Vance's The Dying Earth. Schweitzer is a master fantasist, whom anthologist Mike Ashley once called "today's supreme stylist." Great fantasy reading, now collected into book form for the first time!

The saga of the Elizabeth nicknamed the Black Mayflower that sailed out of the New York Bay in 1820 bound for West Africa continues. The victory of Negro colonies of Freetown and Liberia barked by the United States and Great Britain policing the waters of the Atlantic marked a new offensive in the beginning of the end of the Atlantic slave trade. This in turn sparked overzealousness of desperate slave lords led by Arab traders and kidnappers on the East Coast of Africa that accelerated the rise of the Indian Ocean slave trade. The echoing footsteps of these unrelenting Negroes to end slavery in Africa would be heard by most participants and observers in the form of success stories of Negro adventurers on African shores. The successful activities of the African American colony Liberia in a faraway land considered then as the Dark Continent quickly became the biggest campaign tool for politicians in the United States. The elation led to the banging of tables in the United States Congress by philanthropists, religious leaders as well as politicians, all scrambling to take credit for what was claimed to be a humane way to rid their streets and neighborhoods of the dangers of angry unwanted Negroes or hungry and vicious unowned slaves. Echoes of Footsteps is the second in the three-part novel series on the Birth of a Negro Nation, a saga in the legacy of the Atlantic trade. Deeds Not Words Would conclude the trilogy.
