<b>Zenas Leonard (1809 – 1857) was an American mountain man, explorer and trader, best known for his journal Narrative of the Adventures of Zenas Leonard.</b><br /><br />Leonard was born in Clearfield County, Pennsylvania. As a young adult, he worked for his uncle in Pittsburgh before moving to St. Louis and working as a clerk for the fur company, Gannt and Blackwell.<br />In 1831 he went with Gant and Blackwell's company of about 70 men on a trapping and trading expedition. Living off the land (Leonard reported that "The flesh of the Buffaloe is the wholesomest and most palatable of meat kind"), Leonard and his associates endured great privation while amassing a fortune in furs; the horses died in the harsh winter and the party was at times near starvation. They survived, in part, by trading with Native Americans. Among the more helpful tribal members he reported encountering was a negro who claimed to have been on Lewis & Clark's expedition, and who may have been the explorer-slave York. In 1835 Leonard returned to Independence, Missouri with enough wealth in furs to establish a store and trading post at Fort Osage. He continued to trade along the river for the rest of his life.<br />Leonard's journal was published in book form by D.W. Moore of Clearfield, Pennsylvania in 1839, after being serialized in the Clearfield Republican. It includes many details of the different tribes with which his parties interacted. As it is in the public domain, there are numerous reprints.

<b>Samuel Leech (1798–1848) was a young sailor in the Royal Navy and the United States Navy during the War of 1812. He became notable as one of very few who wrote an account of his experiences, titled, in the manner of the time, "A Voice from the Main Deck".</b><br /><br />Leech's nautical career began in 1810, at the age of thirteen, when Lord William FitzRoy agreed to take Samuel into his frigate HMS Macedonian.<br />He was a powder monkey during Macedonian's duel with the United States in 1812, and would later vividly describe the carnage on board the British ship before she struck her colors.  <br />He was a prisoner of war but his imprisonment seems not to have been too uncomfortable, and did not last long in any case, since the war ended the following year.<br />Many years later he revisited Macedonian, now a US ship, when it was in port in New York (probably 1840), and perhaps this encounter inspired his book, which was published by Tappen & Dennet in 1843.

Approach to Self-Improvement is a book that explains the signals in your life and when you see the same warning signs over and over, take note and start making self-improvement. Don't wait until none of your clothes fit anymore before adopting some self-improvement in a healthier lifestyle. You have a lot more chance of success when you see the first signs that there is a problem in different aspects of your life. If your favorite jeans seem to be getting harder to fasten up, then start to make improvements in your diet to lose unwanted pounds. The same principle applies to everything in your life. Don't wait until you experience pain and hopelessness before using the power of self-improvement.<br /><br />Don't wait until your world starts falling apart. Many of us do that because change isn't always easy, but ignoring change only worsens the situation. There is no need to resist or fear change. Remember if you continue to do the same things in the same way, you will get the same results. So face it and do something about it. Self-improvement can be exhilarating and freeing. It can empower you. Making positive changes through self-improvement will lead to much more happiness, control, and contentment in your life.<br /><br />Self-improvement doesn't mean you need to change everything in your life. Look at the areas that are not making you happy. For example, if you need to lose a few pounds, join a gym or exercise class a few nights a week. Or buy a fitness CD, and grab a friend to work out together. Make it something that is fun, and you will begin to look forward to self-improvement. If you lack confidence or you feel your communications skills are weak, there are so many resources to help you in those areas. There are hundreds of self-improvement books, courses, audio CD's, and videos that can help you boost your confidence and help you understand how to communicate more effectively.<br /><br /><br />The chapters of this book include the following:<br />•What is Self-Improvement?<br />•What Can Self-Improvement Do For You?<br />•The Why, How and What of Self Improvement<br />•Self-Improvement and Its Benefits<br />•Self-Improvement - Achieving Your Dream<br />•5 Steps to a Solid Self Improvement Plan<br />•The Easy Self Improvement Tip You Will Not Read About<br />•Steps Toward Your Self Improvement!<br />•Tapping Into Your Self-Improvement Power<br />•Self-Improvement - 5 Hot Tips for Self-Improvement<br />•7 Hot Tips for Self-Improvement<br />•Self-Improvement - Benefits of Learning Self-Mastery<br />•Self-Improvement and Its Benefits<br />•Self-Improvement Tips to Improve Different Areas of Your Life<br />•Importance of Self-Improvement<br /><br />The beauty of self-improvement is, it is something you can do in the privacy of your own home with plenty of books, courses and CD's that you can choose from. Carve out your path and method to make empowering self-improvements. When you start seeing the encouraging results that happen to you because you decided to unlock the power of self-improvement, you will soon realize that it's only the beginning of a much happier road in your life that puts you in control.<br /><br /><br />

Galactic Football League (GFL) Series:<br />THE ROOKIE • THE STARTER • THE ALL-PRO • THE MVP • THE CHAMPION<br /><br />“THE ROOKIE is a wild ride that takes football to the next level. Set in a future day of corruption, bigger bodies and bigger stakes, it’s Rollerball between the white lines and a fascinating read.” <br />— John Clayton, ESPN NFL Analyst.<br /><br />Set in a lethal pro football league 700 years in the future, THE ROOKIE is a story that combines the intense gridiron action of "Any Given Sunday" with the space opera style of "Star Wars" and the criminal underworld of "The Godfather." Aliens and humans alike play positions based on physiology, creating receivers that jump 25 feet into the air, linemen that bench-press 1,200 pounds, and linebackers that literally want to eat you. Organized crime runs every franchise, games are fixed and rival players are assassinated. <br /><br />Follow the story of Quentin Barnes, a 19-year-old quarterback prodigy that has been raised all his life to hate, and kill, those aliens. Quentin must deal with his racism and learn to lead, or he'll wind up just another stat in the column marked "killed on the field."

Learn the 8 secret skills of an Ex-IDF Special Forces operator that will keep you safe and prepare you for any situation - from a street mugging all the way to a full blown global catastrophe!<br /> <br />“Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t after you.” <br />Joseph Heller, Catch-22<br /> <br />This is a great start to becoming more prepared for any situation. Our world is truly strange that so many good and helpful people find themselves preyed upon by the criminal elements. In case of an emergency or a catastrophe those odds may become even worst.<br /> <br />My name is Roy Shepard and I’m a former IDF (Israeli Defense Forces) Special Forces Operator. During my military service, I took part in countless missions behind enemy lines and later trained young cadets as a Master Sergeant. I specialize in weapons training, stealth and camouflage, and Krav-Maga. I’ve been in active reserve duty for the past 20 years and spent much of that time formulating and implementing defense strategies and drills in military bases all over Israel. Highly trained in martial arts, I specialize in Judo, Jiu-Jitsu, Aikido, and Russian Systema—with both hand-to-hand combat and melee weapon handling. I am also an expert marksman with both close-quarters and long-range weapons.<br /> <br />The IDF is one of the most effective militaries in the world with proven strategies and tactics that have kept Israel safe for the last 70 years. The harsh reality is that Israel is a small country surrounded by hostile nations that have been intent on destroying it since it was formed in 1948. The IDF has defended Israel in eight full-out wars and fended off many incursions and terrorist attacks. <br /> <br />The skills that I’m about to share with you are the same ones used by the IDF Special Forces Operators to stay safe in hostile situations and will allow you to do so as well. Be it fending off a mugger in a dark parking lot or surviving a post-catastrophe scenario.<br /> <br />The reality is that we are always only moments away from danger and knowing the exact step-by-step response can be the difference between life, injury, or even death. Using the knowledge in this book you will learn how to avoid, escape, or survive numerous dangerous situations using minimal effort.<br /> <br />The number one thing you must remember is that being efficient can save your life. If you don’t take steps to conserve your energy, you will get tired very quickly and may lose the battle. Professional fighters can hold a full combat event for a few seconds and after that they rely solely on technique to survive and accomplish the mission. <br /> <br />This book will teach you eight of the most effective techniques to stay safe:<br /><br /> 1. Situational awareness<br /> 2. Tactical relocation<br /> 3. Planning for emergencies<br /> 4. Survival self-defense<br /> 5. Team roles<br /> 6. Communications<br /> 7. Fitness<br /> 8. Survival tools<br /> <br />I look forward to seeing you as part of our community at Prepper Legend and hope you enjoy this book at least as much as I enjoyed writing it.<br /> <br />And above all else stay safe!<br /> <br />Your friend always,<br /> <br />Roy Shepard<br /> <br />
