Title: The History of Herodotus
For anyone who is even marginally interested in ancient history, reading Herodotus is a must - this, after all, is the ebook that has given "history" its name. But his work is anything else but a mere account of dates, battles and names - it brings to live the 5th and 6th centuries BCE, with an abundance of fascinating tales of human virtues and vices, of honor and cruelty, of visions and nightmares, of achievements and defeats, of lives and deaths. While in his work the factual blends with the mythological and the fantastic, Herodotus never loses sight of the actual historical events of the epoch-making confrontation between the Greeks and the all powerful Persian Empire.
The present edition includes seven maps, and new footnotes.
The plain text version of this ebook is free; the PDF version is free for holders of the publisher's "Library Card."

Title: Travels in West Africa (Congo Francais, Corisco and Cameroons)
Author: Mary H. Kingsley
In her breathtaking, edifying and hilariously entertaining autobiographical report Mary Kingsley tells about her expedition into the deepest West African jungle, an unheard-of undertaking for a 19th century British woman travelling on her own. It was an adventure full of life-threatening episodes, from sudden lone encounters with crocodiles and leopards to staying for the night in a cannibal village - and, "convinced that it was almost as safe and far more amusing to be born lucky than wise," she loved every moment of it. Mary Kingsley was also a keen and unprejudiced observer, and her book provides us not only with entertainment, but also with exceptional insights into 19th century African tribal societies, as well as into the mentality and the lives of the European settlers and colonists.
This ebook is based upon the original unabridged edition, with 28 chapters and 3 appendices.

Title: My Peace of The Wall
Author: Anke Otto-Wolf
Ordinary events in the author's American life such as the slicing of a stick of butter into small 'Little Yellow Squares', opened the floodgates of memories reflecting the 1945 American Army food distribution in Germany. Triggered by her Marine son saying 'farewell' due to the Iraq conflict in 1992, the emotional essay 'A Few Days Left' reflects the unimaginable agony of war as a daughter, a wife and as a mother by recalling her father's incarceration in a Nazi concentration camp, and her husband's tours of duty in Vietnam. A 2009 chance meeting with a 1948 Berlin Air Lift 'Raisin Bomber' crew member connected the dots of her life. This fact-filled, detailed account of cataclysmic events in world history including the duration and the fall of the Berlin Wall is a 'must read' for everyone interested in historical truth.

Title: The Horse Training System
This is the system by which Prof. Carroll was able to "cure the most vicious horses of the habit of balking or kicking; also the habits of shying, running away, pulling at the halter, jumping fences or pitching under the saddle. It will enable anyone to ride any horse or mule without saddle or bridle with perfect safety; also to drive without bridle or lines."
Here's just a taste of what else you'll find inside:
- Revealed: the mechanical advantage whereby you can compel a horse to stop instantly at your command, with only a few pounds of pressure!
- How to gain the confidence of a horse so "as long as you are with him he feels no fear."
- How to manage a wild or vicious horse and even those that are quite old before they are first handled.
- How to cure a horse of jumping and fence breaking so thoroughly that he will happily stay in almost any kind of enclosure.
- Secret ways of "jockeying" a horse to make him appear to be other than what he is, eg. blind, lame, sick, unwilling eat or drink and how to remove a brand.

Title: Wolf Wood
Author: Mike Dixon
In 1436 a dispute arose between the people of Sherborne and their abbot over the ownership of a baptismal font. Before it was settled, the abbey was burnt down and a bishop murdered. Some saw the hand of evil at work and blamed a newcomer to the town, accusing her of being a witch. Others saw her as a saint. Wolf Wood is set in the turbulent years of the late middle ages. The old feudal aristocracy is losing control, a new middleclass is flexing its muscles, the authority of the church is being questioned, law and order have broken down and England is facing defeat in France. Wolf Wood is a work of fiction based on actual events. PDF, 2.69MB, 361 pages.
