Bears by the Numbers: A Complete Team History of the Chicago Bears by Uniform Number by Lew Freedman (Sports Publishing) 4.8 Stars (6 Reviews)    Price verified 6 hours ago

What do Al Campana, Frank Dempsey, Stan Wallace, Don Mullins, Gale Sayers, and Steve Trimble all have in common? They all wore number 40 for the Chicago Bears, even though more than four decades passed between the last time Campana last pulled on his jersey and the number was retired for Sayers in 1994 (along with 51 for Dick Butkus). Since the Chicago Bears first adopted uniform numbers in 1932, the team has handed out only 99 numbers to more than 1,000 players. That's a lot of overlap. It also makes for a lot of good stories. Bears by the Numbers tells those stories for every Bear since '32, from Red Grange to Pernell McPhee. This book lists the players alphabetically and by number; these biographies help trace the history of one of football's oldest and most beloved teams in a new way. For Bears fans, anyone who ever wore the uniform is like family. Bears by the Numbers reintroduces readers to some of their long-lost ancestors, even those they think they already know.

Hell's Highway by G. Daniel Cole (Createspace) 4.0 Stars (24 Reviews)    Price verified 9 hours ago

Having been blessed with a rich, full life, I must with all due humility confess that very little moves me anymore. I've seen and experienced the self-sacrifice and beauty that only the deepest of loves can bestow. I have been poisoned and hardened by man's inhumanity to man. Having said that, imagine my soul-stirring surprise when my friend Danny Cole sent me, almost apologetically, the first chapter of what became this book, seeking my opinion. The thing was, you see, Danny Cole had never before written anything in the way of books, short stories, poetry, etc. But he had something he needed to express and about halfway through his twenty-second year of sobriety he felt the time had come to express it. Not that he isn't a creative artist. Anyone who has ever seen the photographs of his loving tribute to his daughter Gloria, named Gloria Gardens, that he designed and constructed stone by stone in his back yard couldn't help but realize that.

Once connected, never can a bond be broken... Relocating from the quiet suburbs of London to the industrial northern town of Newton Escomb, to a small cul-de-sac there named Skipton Road, was already a challenge in itself for Christopher Joyce and his family -- yet, they had no idea of what malevolent horrors awaited them there. Unbeknown to them, the Joyce's new home bore a terrible and bloody past. It was plagued by wicked entities, twisted deeds, death, and witchcraft. Although, not all was as it seemed. Christopher was a firm sceptic of anything supernatural, as was his wife, Amy, but that would soon change after two demonic beings made their presences and sordid intentions known through many terrifying apparitions and vivid nightmares. Already held in a vulnerable state of mind, Amy gradually succumbed to the powerful influence of these dark spirits, namely a fallen witch who possessed a desperate thirst for vengeance against men -- Sabina.

This important illustrated social history of slavery tells what life was like for bond servants in Florida from 1821 to 1865, offering new insights from the perspective of both slave and master. Starting with an overview of the institution as it evolved during the Spanish and English periods, Larry E. Rivers looks in detail and in depth at the slave experience, noting the characteristics of slavery in the Middle Florida plantation belt (the more traditional slave-based, cotton-growing economy and society) as distinct from East and West Florida (which maintained some attitudes and traditions of Spain). He examines the slave family, religion, resistance activity, slaves' participation in the Civil War, and their social interactions with whites, Indians, other slaves, and masters. Rivers also provides a dramatic account of the hundreds of armed free blacks and runaways among the Seminole, Creek, and Mikasuki Indians on the peninsula, whose presence created tensions leading to the great ...

Skytrain: A Transport Revolution by Philip Kaplan (Skyhorse) Price verified 13 hours ago

The legendary Douglas DC-3 airliner was a technological breakthrough that changed the course of both civilian and military aviation. In the 1930s, passenger air travel was expensive, uncomfortable, and frequently unreliable. That began to change with the appearance of the handsome, thoroughly modern DC-3, the twenty-one-passenger twin-engine propeller-driven creation of Donald Douglas and his young California company. The first production models were sold to airlines for $90,000. The price climbed to $115,000 just before the United States entered the Second World War in December 1941. The new plane quickly became a favorite of passengers the world over, and it became the first truly profitable plane for the industry. The threat posed by the coming war made the US Army realize that a military version could handle the vital troop and cargo transport capability soon to be needed. The C-47 Skytrain was born and evolved into specialized versions with many nicknames: Gooney Bird, Dakota, ...

Equal parts entertaining and inspiring, Enjoying the Ride tells an extraordinary mother and son story and provides a refreshingly candid perspective on the lives of disabled people. Mitch was five when he learned his mother would be in a wheelchair for the rest of her life. If he hadn't grown up with such an inspirational role model, however, he wouldn't have been prepared for what would come. At 35, the same age as his mother when she had her accident, Mitch began experiencing symptoms of primary progressive multiple sclerosis, a particularly disabling form of MS, and his physical challenges grew to resemble his mother's. In the ensuing years, he muddled through the ethical swampland of clinical trials, navigated the minefield of experimental treatments, and became a popular blogger and disability advocate. Only while conducting research for this book did Mitch learn the heart-wrenching story about the night his mother was injured.

The Angel Tree: The Enchanting Quest for the World's Oldest Olive Tree by Alex Dingwall-Main (Arcade) 3.0 Stars (5 Reviews)    Price verified 18 hours ago

A serendipitous, fender-bending encounter between the author, a distinguished landscape architect, and a wealthy Frenchman in Provence leads to the strangest, funniest horticultural odyssey in recent memory. The rich, eccentric Frenchman has just finished renovating, with great care and attention, a beautiful house in Provence. But the elegant courtyard looks very empty. “Find me the oldest olive tree in existence," he challenges the author, “and bring it back to take pride of place in my garden." The author's travels take him to the olive groves of France, the farms of Greece and Spain, and many backyards of Italy. Along the way, he encounters a 3,000-year-old tree, a farmer who won't sell his tree unless he can sell the farm that surrounds it, mafiosi skullduggery in the plant world, unscrupulous dealers, divided families, local weddings, farcical disasters, and a village that believes a drop of rain that has touched the leaves of the Angel Tree will cure any illness or sadness.

The Shooting of Rabbit Wells: A White Cop, a Young Man of Color, and an American Tragedy by William Loizeaux (Arcade) Price verified one day ago

What put a white cop and a black youth on a tragic collision course? On a frigid winter's night in 1973, William “Rabbit" Wells, a young man of mixed race, was shot and killed by a white policeman named William Sorgie outside a bar. The shooting stunned the placid, prosperous communities of New York. For twenty-five years author William Loizeaux, who went to high school with Rabbit, hasn't been able to let go of a story that struck at the core of the place that he, along with Rabbit and Sorgie, called home. With clear-eyed compassion and unsparing honesty, The Shooting of Rabbit Wells recreates the lives of both victim and killer and the forces that brought them together. By giving us the life of Rabbit Wells, Loizeaux makes us understand—and feel—how unacceptable and irreparable his loss was, and how deeply the bullet that killed him is lodged in the American identity.

Martial Arts on Noah's Ark The Genesis Origins of Today's Martial Arts It has long been held that the ways of the East-Buddhism, Confucianism, Hinduism and Taoism are the primary foundations of today's martial arts.

THE LAST AMERICAN FRONTIER: The History of the 'Far West', Trials of the Trailblazers and the Battles with Native Americans by Frederic L. Paxson (e-artnow) 4.2 Stars (9 Reviews)    Price verified 3 hours ago

The exploration, settlement, exploitation, and conflicts of the "American Old West" form a unique tapestry of events, which has been celebrated by Americans and foreigners alike -- in art, music, dance, novels, magazines, short stories, poetry, theater, video games, movies, radio, television, song, and oral tradition. Many historians of the American West have written about the mythic West; the west of western literature, art and of people's shared memories. But Frederic Paxson's book takes us through the era when the American frontier was undergoing a massive transformation and when the decades old struggles of the Native Americans were finally beginning to make a dent in the old white American history... Frederic Logan Paxson was a Pulitzer Prize winning American historian and an authority on the American frontier.

The classic account and history of the Taos Revolt and the Cheyenne Indians. In the bright morning of his youth, Lewis H. Garrard traveled into the wild and free Rocky Mountain West and left us this fresh and vigorous account, which, says A. B. Guthrie Jr., contains in its pages “the genuine article—the Indian, the trader, the mountain man, their dress, and behavior and speech and the country and climate they lived in." On September 1, 1846, Garrard, then only seventeen years old, left Westport Landing (now Kansas City) with a caravan, under command of the famous trader Céran St. Vrain, bound for Bent's Fort (Fort William) in the southeastern part of present-day Colorado. After a lengthy visit at the fort and in a camp of the Cheyenne Indians, early in 1847 he joined the little band of volunteers recruited by William Bent to avenge the death of his brother, Governor Charles Bent of Taos, killed in a bloody but brief Mexican and Indian uprising in that New Mexican pueblo.

Somme 1916: Success and Failure on the First Day of the Battle of the Somme by Paul Kendall (Skyhorse) 3.1 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 10 hours ago

What really happened on the first day of the Somme? Much controversy has surrounded the Somme offensive relating to its justification and its impact upon the course of the war. General Sir Douglas Haig's policies have been the subject of considerable debate about whether the heavy losses sustained were worth the small gains that were achieved which appeared to have little strategic value. That was certainly the case on many sectors on 1 July 1916, where British soldiers were unable to cross No Man's Land and failed to reach, or penetrate into, the German trenches. In other sectors, however, breaches were made in the German lines culminating in the capture that day of Leipzig Redoubt, Mametz and Montauban. This book aims to highlight the failures and successes on that day and for the first time evaluate those factors that caused some divisions to succeed in capturing their objectives whilst others failed. An important new study, this book is certain to answer these questions as well ...

"The Algonquin Legends of New England" is a brilliant collection of stories from the folklore tradition of the Algonquin (Algonquian, Algonkin) peoples of North America, in particular of the "Micmac, Passamaquoddy, and Penobscot tribes". The collection presented in the book is a result of the collecting efforts of folklorist Charles Godfrey Leland and from Rev. Silas T. Rand, a Canadian Baptist clergyman who was the first to record the legend of Glooskap. It is this legend, with its many chapters, which takes up the majority of the book. The central character is a giant of a divinity named Glooskap, who "grows to a more appalling greatness than Thor or Odin in his battles", and whose name literally means Liar, because it is said that when he left earth he promised to return but has never done so.

Epic Beer Dinners is the ultimate celebration of beer and food pairings. A glass of beer alone can be a splendid thing, but when incorporated into your cooking and served alongside the dish, it can be a symphony of flavor. Chefs Brooke and Luther Fedora explain the many ways beer can enrich and enhance a dish or an entire meal by providing a wealth of recipes and suggested pairings. Begin by exploring beer varieties and their characteristics; helping you to learn the various flavor notes that are the foundation for cooking and pairings. A hoppy beer, for example, can add bite to a dish and is best for batters and light dishes, but is inappropriate for long simmering dishes where it instead strengthens the inherent bitterness of the dish. Malt, on the other hand, can add a mellow sweetness that is pleasing in stewed dishes and marinades.
