Apache

Exciting story of a Mexican boy captured by Apaches and adopted into the tribe. A saga of survival in the face of danger. An account of an Indian tribe's confrontation with American settlers and eventual defeat by the cavalry.

"An Apache warrior bent down from his horse, its glossy black flanks still heaving from exertion, to pick me up. As his hand grabbed my arm I bit hard into the flesh of his forearm. It was a deep bite and he shouted with pain. The other Apaches laughed loudly at his discomfort. He reached down again. I tried the same tactic but this time he was too quick. He jerked me upwards onto his horse and sat me in front of him. I fought like a cornered bobcat, spitting, biting and clawing. He struck me on the back of the neck. A vivid flash, then darkness." Thus begins the saga of Pedro Bautista captured by the Apache Indians when he was nine years old after a raid on his Mexican village. Adopted into the tribe, he absorbed their culture and survived their eventual confrontation and defeat by American troops. "Denver Westerner's Roundup" said "This work offers the reader some understanding of tribal organization, courtship, and the raiding way of life of these people. Short novels such as Apache serve a most useful purpose by appealing to those readers who are not likely to sit down and wade through a long scholarly work on the Apache or other topics. This is an interesting story that reaches an important audience." * * * * * Grant Gall, a former news reporter and news editor, is one of England's foremost authorities on Western American history. He has appeared on BBC television and radio programs dealing with the Apache Indian Wars.

The Long Ride of Major Von Schill

This unique book traces the past 200 years of German history, using an iconic German folk hero as a bellwether of changing politics and culture. In 1809, at the height of Napoleon's power in Europe, the Prussian Major Ferdinand von Schill led a revolt against the French empire. Within a month his rebellion was crushed, and Schill became a martyr for German nationalists. As the years passed, Schill's legend grew and evolved until he had become one of Germany's most famous and celebrated Napoleonic figures: the subject of hundreds of novels, poems, plays, operas, films, biographies, and monuments. Sam A. Mustafa explores the radical changes in German society and politics in the two centuries since Schill's death. In the first English-language work on the subject, he shows how Schill remarkably endured as other heroes fell in and out of fashion. For imperial propagandists, Liberal Democrats, Nazis, and Communists alike, he was a favorite historical icon and cultural touchstone. The author traces how an obscure failed rebel became a revered national symbol of patriotism and heroism and the ways each successive German regime coopted his story for its own ideological mission. Drawing on a rich array of primary and secondary sources, Mustafa considers the nature of patriotism, the creation of heroes and heroic mythology, and the fragility of history itself in a masterful narrative that will be an invaluable reference for anyone interested in the German experience during the Napoleonic Wars.

A compellingly-narrated, thrillingly-portrayed account account of an epic motorcycle journey taken in 2014 from Singapore to Sweden over 100 days. Philip’s aim to increase breast cancer awareness makes it more than the run-of-the-mill adventure holiday, but a ride with a cause. Written as an internal monologue, much in keeping with long motorcycle rides where hours are spent alone in a helmet with one’s thoughts, this chronicle runs through 17 countries and the entire sweep of the Silk Road. The motorcycles give the author an immediate access to different peoples and cultures, with a unique chance to meet breast cancer patients across different Asian countries. Time pressures in order to meet collaborators leads to mental collapse and near failure. As he falters from a mental breakdown and perseveres, it makes this journey more about cancer survival than ever intended.
