Since Otto Wood was seven years old, he had been in trouble with the law, and was notorious for his escapes from the law. He wrote his life history while serving a thirty-year sentence for killing a man in 1923. His hopes were that the book would help a lost soul from going down the same road as he. While, he did not take his own advice, for the last time, he again escaped prison and was killed in a shootout with the Law on December 31, 1930.

This is an account of Michael Wagner and Kunigunda Kraus and their four month journey while emigrating from Bavaria to Illinois. There were eight adults and four children in this group of simple peasant farmers who risked everything they had when they departed their beloved village to travel over 6,500 miles between June and October of 1845. Every attempt was made to be historically faithful regarding this story, including dates, names, landmarks, even the weather. All of the characters mentioned by name actually existed, including the “hermit” in Hausen and “Captain Siefert Geerken” commanding the sailing ship. Occasionally, I took the liberty of using diaries of other Bavarians who ...

The Eighteenth Engineers tells the story of the incredible work performed by the men of the 18th Engineers Regiment in WW1. They were among the first 75,000 A. E. F. troops to arrive in France in late August of 1917. There they built massive docks large enough to berth 10 transport ships end to end.

Finally, they designed and built a complex, multi-functional railroad track system, along with unique cargo handling equipment allowing them the ability to unload men and cargo quickly and efficiently from the ships hold.

The Life of Colonel Paul Revere Elbridge Goss

Size: 6" x 9"
Binding: Perfect Bound
"Listen my children and you shall hear Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere." When asked about Paul Revere, this is probably about all the average person could tell you. Elbridge Goss says as much in some of the last words of this book, "But he deserves better than this. His career symbolizes much more than this ride to Lexington, with his 'cry of alarm,' which went 'to every village and farm;' for, besides the various trades in which he exhibited such deft handiwork, he was an important character in many ways." Goss's book (actually a 2-volume set, which has been combined for this book offering), with the gracious help of the Revere family and the people of Boston, seeks to flesh ...

The tale begins with Hans Wagner (abt.1505-1575) who was the first Wagner to arrive in the village and explores the puzzling history of his descendants up to the immigration of Michael Wagner (1822-1903) to Lake County, Illinois in 1845.

William Hall Catskill Mountains Minister is a biography of Reverend William Hall (1829-1878). He spent his life in the service of his fellow man as a Methodist Circuit Rider in the Catskill Mountains of New York, and at times in other nearby areas. This is the story of his dedication to the gospel and his efforts to bring it to those who would listen. Continually reassigned to new congregations every year or two, in the Methodist tradition, he served in Windham, Ashland, Prattsville, Roxbury, Walton, Andes, Bovina, Livingstonville and many other places. He was married to Sarah Jane Bushnell (1834-1909), and had four children, William Alvin, Flora Auguta, Sarah Kittie, and Leona.
