Sorrow of the Earth: Buffalo Bill, Sitting Bull and the Tragedy of Show Business by Éric Vuillard

English | October 31st, 2017 | ASIN: B01JQVQKL6, ISBN: 1782272216 | 192 Pages | EPUB | 1.05 MB
Fascinating, brilliant and angry: the tale of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show and the tragic fate of its Native American participants.
Buffalo Bill was the prince of show business. His spectacular Wild West shows were performed to packed houses across the world, holding audiences spellbound with their grand re-enactments of tales from the American frontier. For Bill gave the crowds something they’d never seen before: real-life Indians.
This astonishing work of historical re-imagining tells the story of the Native Americans swallowed up by Buffalo Bill’s great entertainment machine. Of chief Sitting Bull, paraded in theatres to boos and catcalls for fifty dollars a week. Of a baby Lakota girl, found under her mother’s frozen body, adopted and displayed on the stage. Of the last few survivors of Wounded Knee, hired to act out the horrific massacre of their tribe as entertainment. And of Buffalo Bill Cody himself, hamming it to the last, even as it consumed him.
Told with beauty, compassion and anger, Sorrow of the Earth shows us tragedy turned into a circus act, history into sham, truth into a spectacle more powerful than reality itself. Could any of us turn away?

Lee Edwards, “Just Right: A Life in Pursuit of Liberty”

ISBN: 1610171454 | 2017 | EPUB | 400 pages | 9 MB
“Lee Edwards has always been in the forefront of the struggle to restore America, to bring it back to its ancient moorings. . . . Lee has fought hard with uncommon intelligence and resourcefulness. But he has fought fair and always without rancor. . . . Truly, a man for all seasons.”
—President Ronald Reagan
Lee Edwards is not just a leading historian of the conservative movement; he has been an active player in the movement longer than anyone else.
As the Daily Caller noted in a recent profile, Edwards “has lived conservative history like none other.” And he brings that history to life in Just Right.
This memoir is full of colorful stories from a man who has been present at nearly every major event of the modern conservative movement and has done it all in a remarkable, multifaceted career.
Just Right reveals:
Edwards’s insider account of Barry Gold­water’s pivotal 1964 presidential campaign, for which he ran national publicity
How he wrote the first political biography of Ronald Reagan—and discovered early on that Reagan was a secret intellectual who read Hayek, Bastiat, and Chambers
Excerpts from his fifty-year-long correspondence with William F. Buckley Jr., revealing new aspects of WFB
Why the New York Times dubbed Edwards “The ‘Voice’ of the Silent Majority”
How he organized the largest public demonstration in support of our men in Vietnam
How he created the Victims of Communism Memorial in Washington, pushing against the federal bureaucracy for two decades to make it happen
Lee Edwards’s memoir appears at a critical time in the history of American conservatism. In an inspiring chapter aimed at the rising generation, Dr. Edwards shows how conservatives can remain a major political and philosophical force in America.

The Panther In My Kitchen: My Wild Life With Animals by Brian Blessed

English | November 2nd, 2017 | ASIN: B0746NCD4Y, ISBN: 150984158X | 198 Pages | EPUB | 18.36 MB
Brian Blessed has a lifelong love of animals and over the years has rescued cats and dogs, horses and ponies, and even a very ungrateful fighting cock. All were characters in their own right, such as Jessie, a dog left languishing for a year at the local RSPCA, who ruled the entire household with a rod of iron, when she wasn’t out harassing the local vicar.
Then there was Bodger, an abused terrier cross breed, who was nursed back to health by Brian and his wife, and Peppone, a stray cat and notorious thief, who was responsible for a crime epidemic in the Bagshot area. Most of all there was Misty, a soul mate and the first Jack Russell Brian met who didn’t take an instant dislike to him.
Over the years Brian has encountered more exotic animals too, from Kali the black panther who had free run of his kitchen and the gentle boa constrictor Bo Bo who went for walks with him in Richmond Park to the female gorillas who found him incredibly attractive. Written with all of Brian’s ebullience, The Panther in My Kitchen is a laugh-out-loud, life-affirming book about the joy animals bring and why we should care for them.

The Stooges – A Journey Through The Michigan Underworld by Brett Callwood

English | July 31st, 2008 | ASIN: B01227EGXA, ISBN: 1784189766 | 163 Pages | EPUB | 0.38 MB
Fronted by a wild-eyed, bare-chested maniac named Jim Osterberg—now known to the world as Iggy Pop—the Stooges grew from bluesy roots to lead the charge into a new era of punk rock. Containing primary interviews with all the band members and Iggy himself, as well as other key characters, this biography provides a collection of exclusive and captivating eye-witness accounts of this most important of rock bands.
The influence of The Stooges on the world of punk and rock ‘n’ roll is immeasurable. The band’s three albums—The Stooges, Fun House, and Raw Power—are bona fide classics. The fact that the band only existed for a few short years at the end of the 1960s and start of the 1970s makes their achievements all the more impressive. Of course, lead singer Iggy Pop went on to have huge success as a solo artist, working with the likes of David Bowie and Green Day, but here, for the first time, The Stooges story is told in-depth, through original interviews with the band members. Just after the turn of the new millennium, Iggy reformed The Stooges with all of the key members present, including brothers Ron and Scott “Rock Action” Asheton. They since have headlined festivals around the world. Their contribution to rock music history is without question and this book is an important document of those times and their lives.
