The controversial memoir <i>Brigham's Destroying Angel</i> caused a huge rift in the Mormon Church upon its release in 1872 and had a powerful effect on the church’s reputation. ‘Wild’ Bill Hickman’s book chronicles his life as a member of the Mormon church and his reputed position as Brigham Young’s hatchet-man. Accused at the time of mass-murder, Hickman shares the details of the horrific crimes he committed, which he controversially claims were ordered by Brigham Young.<br /><br />This new 2017 edition of <i>Brigham’s Destroying Angel</i> includes an introduction and appendix.

The story of a young couple who, without any prior sailing experience, decide one night over too many drinks that they are going to sail around the world. One year later they are bobbing around in the Bahamas on a thirty-five foot catamaran teaching themselves how to cross oceans in a small boat.<br /><br />Along their way they meet amazing people, visit locations only accessible by those on their own yachts, become television actors in Australia, minor celebrities in Puerto Rico, and generally have a great time of it all.<br /><br />They aren't your average cruisers by any stretch of the imagination, and run afoul of what most cruisers perceive to be "real" cruisers. But for four years they sailed around the world on their own terms.<br /><br />This is their story, and is essential reading for anybody who has ever had the dream to sail around the world. This book just might push you over the edge, and the horizon.

Though most eBooks are simple conversions of paper books, the "eNotated Sailing Alone" is a completely new approach that takes advantage of the potential eBook technology offers to extend and enrich Slocum’s writing in a way that’s convenient to use while still unobtrusive to the reader.<br /><br />Based on the 1901 edition of "Sailing Alone Around the World" and including more than 60 original illustrations, this eNotated edition extends Slocum’s writing by providing a new layer of information behind the text the reader can access before, during, and after each chapter.<br /><br />For instance, in Chapter 15, when Slocum writes, “Taking things by and large as sailors say…,” Thomerson’s eNotation tells us Slocum means “Overall, or in most cases” and that “Sailing ‘by’ means toward the wind, sailing ‘large’ means away from the wind. Hence ‘by and large’ encompasses most of the possible options and implies ‘most of the time’”.<br /><br />Joshua Slocum was the first person to sail solo around the world and his account of the voyage is adventure writing at its best - but his colorful story telling is filled with 19th century sailing terms, geographical references, and idioms that may be lost to the modern reader. Chris Thomerson, a lifelong sailor and student of maritime history, provides the background and explanations readers need to thoroughly understand, appreciate, and enjoy Slocum’s classic by adding hundreds of electronic annotations linked to words and phrases in Slocum’s original text.<br /><br />If you are going to read Slocum for the first time - or reread him after some years - you will best enjoy and most throughly understand him with this unique eNotated edition.

eNotated Classics are a completely new approach that takes advantage of eBook technology to extend and enrich books in a way that’s convenient to use and easy for the reader. Most eBooks are simple conversions of paper books, eNotated editions add an extra layer of meaning to bring the book to life in your hands.<br /><br />Chris Thomerson, lifelong sailor and student of maritime history, provides the background and explanations readers need to thoroughly understand, appreciate, and enjoy this narrative by adding expert electronic annotations linked to words and phrases in the original text.<br /><br />For instance, when Dana writes, “scuttled butt” Thomerson explains that this is a “Cask, or butt, of drinking water on deck, with a hole for the sailors to drink from. The only place available to exchange a word while working on deck, under the pretense of getting a drink. Hence, 'scuttle-butt' has come to mean inside knowledge or, gossip.”
