From Hard Knocks to Hard Rocks: A Journey in My Shoes: From the Hills of the Ozarks to Mines Around the World

https://www.amazon.com/Hard-Knocks-Rocks-Journey-Ozarks-eboo...
From Hard Knocks to Hard Rocks: A Journey in My Shoes is my story of how a poor kid from the Ozarks, who was ill equipped, educationally or financially, to attended Missouri School of Mines (MSM) and yet became a mining engineer. A career which got me out of the Ozarks and took me to many countries. This journey will tell of many funny anecdotal stories and covers our lives during the Great Depression; life on an Ozark hill farm, where ever thing we tried, failed; the home front during WWII; the returning of thousands of battle-hardened veterans to blend onto college campuses with naïve kids just out of high school and the stories they generated; my early experiences in the underground mines of Washington, Idaho and Colorado. Then being drafted in the army infantry but ending up in the Corp of Engineers (COE) during the Korean War and how that quirk of events ended up with the COE sponsoring my returning to MSM to get an MS degree in mining engineering. This led to being hired by St. Joseph Lead Co. for their new mining research department. I was involved in some very successful research developments in mining techniques, which found world-wide interest and allowed me to succeed, not only within St. Joe, but also with a world-wide reputation. During my 22 years with St. Joe, I was not only successful in rising through their ranks but was also involved with their building a modern town and three mining-milling complexes in the wilderness of the Clark National Forest of the Missouri Ozarks, at a time just before the eco-activists were stopping all mining's progress. Yet, the overall area has not been harmed one bit in 50-plus years. I think that you will find that traveling with me (and my Guardian Angel) through my career as a mining engineer will be interesting and at times, even exciting (if not downright scary). I'll take you to many places in the United States, as well as many other countries. To name a couple of adventures: there was the snow avalanche while we were perched on the side of Battle Mountain, Colorado, and the hike across Death Valley one August night. These are just two of the places and stories that you may find interesting. Because the story covers 83 years of my life, I have divided it into two books: Book One and Book Two. Book One covers the 40 years in which I mostly resided in my home state of Missouri, but did some travel in the United States, Peru, Chile, UK, Germany and Mexico. Book Two covers the last 43 years, in which most of my extensive travels to at least 15 other countries and took me to many exotic places from the jungles of the Amazon in Peru, to a mine near the North Pole and a few very harrowing experiences where I was afraid for my survival. I hope that you will travel with me, since I know that you will find the trip most interesting.In summary, I have traveled in more than 30 countries; some of them extensively, venturing to some very remote regions. My work has taken me to all 50 states in the U.S. and all 10 provinces of Canada, most of the Australian provinces, much of Mexico, extensively in South America, many countries in Europe and extensively in China. This travel has given me a broad perspective of life as you find it in many diverse cultures and made me realize the blessing of being born to a Christian family, during the great depression and in America. I would hope that this background would be something that I could build on in writing stories about people and the cultures of where they live, which I believe you will find interesting. .

The Little Seagull Handbook (Third Edition)

https://www.amazon.com/Little-Seagull-Handbook-Third-ebook/d...
The pocket-sized handbook that does the work of a full-sized handbook, now with a new section on editing the errors that matter.Most handbooks include chapters on various general writing topics (e.g., the writing process or the elements of an argument), but few cover the specific kinds of writing students are assigned to do. The Little Seagull has chapters on reports, analyses, and all the other genres that college students are most often assigned. And because it's so small, so easy to use, and so affordable, it's proven to be a popular alternative to larger (and much more costly) handbooks. The third edition adds a new section on editing the errors that matter—and the option to include free access to InQuizitive for Writers, which provides practice in editing the same errors.Please note that this version of the ebook does not include access to any media or print supplements that are sold packaged with the printed book.

The Third Reich: A History of Nazi Germany

https://www.amazon.com/Third-Reich-History-Nazi-Germany-eboo...
“Riveting…An elegantly composed study, important and even timely” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review) history of the Third Reich—how Adolf Hitler and a core group of Nazis rose from obscurity to power and plunged the world into World War II.In “the new definitive volume on the subject” (Houston Press), Thomas Childers shows how the young Hitler became passionately political and anti-Semitic as he lived on the margins of society. Fueled by outrage at the punitive terms imposed on Germany by the Versailles Treaty, he found his voice and drew a loyal following. As his views developed, Hitler attracted like-minded colleagues who formed the nucleus of the nascent Nazi party. Between 1924 and 1929, Hitler and his party languished in obscurity on the radical fringes of German politics, but the onset of the Great Depression gave them the opportunity to move into the mainstream. Hitler blamed Germany’s misery on the victorious allies, the Marxists, the Jews, and big business—and the political parties that represented them. By 1932 the Nazis had become the largest political party in Germany, and within six months they transformed a dysfunctional democracy into a totalitarian state and began the inexorable march to World War II and the Holocaust. It is these fraught times that Childers brings to life: the Nazis’ unlikely rise and how they consolidated their power once they achieved it. Based in part on German documents seldom used by previous historians, The Third Reich is a “powerful…reminder of what happens when power goes unchecked” (San Francisco Book Review). This is the most comprehensive and readable one-volume history of Nazi Germany since the classic The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich.

Deadwood and Shakespeare: The Henriad in the Old West

https://www.amazon.com/Deadwood-Shakespeare-Henriad-Old-West...
Set in politically unstable environments, Shakespeare’s history plays—Richard II, 1 Henry IV, 2 Henry IV and Henry V—and HBO’s Western series Deadwood (2004–2006) all stand as critiques of myths of national origin, the sanitized stories we tell ourselves about how power imposes order on chaos. Drawing parallels between the Shakespeare plays and Deadwood, the author explores questions about legitimate political authority, the qualities of an effective leader, gender roles and community, and the reciprocal relationship between past and present in historical narratives.
