<B>In the midst of World War II, a German-American family finds themselves stranded in Japan in this </B><B>inspiring tale of an extraordinary family adapting to the hazards of fate, and finding salvation in each other. </B><BR><BR>In the spring of 1941, seven-year-old Hildegarde Ercklentz and her family leave their home in New York City and set off for their native Germany, where her father has been recalled to the headquarters of the Commerz & Privat Bank in Berlin. It was meant to be an epic journey, crossing the United States, the Pacific, and Siberia—but when Hitler invades Russia, a week-long stay in Yokohama, Japan becomes six years of quasi-detention, as Hildegarde and her family are stranded in Japan until the war’s end. In this spellbinding memoir, Mahoney recounts her family’s moving saga, from their courage in the face of terrible difficulties—including forced relocation, scarce rations, brutal winters in the Japanese Alps—to their joyous reunion with their German relatives in Hamburg, and their eventual return to New York City in 1950. Richly detailed and remarkably vivid, <I>Journey Interrupted</I> is a story unlike any other—the inspiring tale of an extraordinary family adapting to the hazards of fate, and finding salvation in each other.

<h2><b>“a book that is a little classic of the rugged life.” <em>Chicago Tribune</em></h2><br /><br />Have you thought of escaping from life in the “Big City”?<br /><br />Have you dreamed of stepping off the treadmill of work and leaving behind the tedious office job?</b><br /><br />Unhappy with his life in New York, Richard Morenus did just that.<br /><br />Taking along his dog and some equipment he left the humdrum life in the city for the wilderness.<br /><br />When he first arrived in the beautiful backwoods of Canada some Native Americans saw how unprepared he was for his new life and gave him the name Sha-ga-na-she Wa-du-kee, which translates to Crazy-White-Man.<br /><br />The first few months of his life in the bitter cold of a Canadian winter were a fight for survival for Morenus, but as the years went by he became more competent and began to thrive in the beautiful landscape.<br /><br /><em>Crazy-White-Man</em> is a brilliant account of Richard Morenus’ search for a new life in the Canadian wilderness. It is told in a down-to-earth style that is sure to appeal to any reader who dreams of an adventure.<br /><br />“As a story of the indomitable spirit of men and women pitted against the overwhelming forces of nature, ‘Crazy-White-Man’ is an inspiring one; as a tale of pure adventure, it will be hard to put down.” <em>Chicago Tribune</em><br /><br />“Respect for Mr. Morenus’ courage and hardihood grows with every page we read . . . it emerges as a valuable addition to the small number of books about the Canadian bush.” <em>The New York Times</em><br /><br />“Anyone from young to old who has wanted to toss the soft life of today into the discard and live as our ancestors did will enjoy this book. To those who have lived under frontier conditions it will be equally refreshing—and that cannot be said for many of this type.” <em>Colorado Spring Free Press</em><br /><br />“one of the best tales of escape from city pressures ... It is a vivid close-up of the Ontario bush—written down with the vividness and gaiety of a man who knew he was free.” <em>Christian Science Monitor</em><br /><br />Richard Morenus was a New York writer for radio and magazines when he left his old life for a new one in the wilderness of Ontario. He spent the next six years of his life there. His book <em>Crazy-White-Man</em> was first published in 1956 and he passed away in 1968.<br />

<h2><b>“One of the 50 best books of all time on the American West.” <em>True West</em></b></h2><br /><br />In 1856 Frederick Law Olmsted began a journey into the heart of Texas.<br /><br />His account of the Lone Star State just a few years before the beginning of the Civil War is one of the most remarkable books ever to have been published about the American West.<br /><br />He travelled on horseback through small towns, across plains and down canyons in his quest to speak, listen and record what early Texans thought, saw and said.<br /><br />Olmstead spent over a year speaking to everyone he met, from runaway slaves to housewives, from Native American chiefs to German emigrants going to Texas to begin their new lives. <br /><br />“Olmstead’s appeal was attributable to his readable and unvarnished reportage of places and events to which few Easterners had direct access. . . . [It] provides a credible glimpse of life in Texas in the mid-1850s, as well as insights into the contemporary debate over the institution of slavery. . . . it remains a basic source for historians of the region and the period.” <em>Southwest Book Views</em><br /><br />"intelligent, lively, readable book, packed with keen observation and lightened by a delicate strain of humor." Larry McMurty<br /><br />“The peculiar institution was more peculiar in Texas than in other states, and Olmsted’s eye for the weirdness makes Journey, a page turner. So does his use of sprightly travelogue to make the serious argument that slavery was ruining Texas. . . . Olmsted’s word portraits of mid-19th-century Texas are as good as the best modern travelogues.” Debbie Nathan, <em>Texas Observer</em><br /><br />“Some of the most interesting works that have been written on America … are the production of a native, Mr. F. L. Olmsted.” <em>The British Quarterly Review</em><br /><br />“Praise for this book has been almost universal (in the North at least) since its publication in 1857 and continues to this day.” <em>Southwestern Historical Quarterly</em><br /><br />The works of Frederick Law Olmsted have been hailed as some of the most convincing and influential anti-slavery arguments, his work was widely praised with London’s <em>Westminster Review</em> declaring, “it is impossible to resist his accumulated evidence.”<br /><br />Frederick Law Olmsted was an American landscape architect, journalist, social critic, and public administrator. He was particularly famous for assisting in the design of many of America’s most loved parks, including Central Park in New York City, Golden Gate Park in San Francisco and Elm Park in Worcester, Massachusetts. He wrote three different accounts of his travels across America. <em> A Journey through Texas: Or a Saddle-Trip on the Southwestern Frontier</em> was first published in 1857 and he passed away in 1903.<br /><br />

<h2>James O. Pattie’s <em>Personal Narrative</em> is a prime source for the history of the Southwest during the 1820s.</h2><br /><br />He, and a group of fur trappers, set out on a journey from St. Louis to California and back.<br /><br />After Jed Smith’s trip this journey, which began in 1824, is the second known expedition to California.<br /><br />This remarkable book records an eyewitness account of what the West was like before the great swathes of migration occurred.<br /><br />Pattie’s book fully explores the dangers of life as a trapper in the wilderness of the far west, including during one episode after Pattie and a group of French trappers were attacked and only three of them survived.<br /><br /><em>Personal Narrative</em> provides fascinating insight into the earliest clashes that were beginning to occur between citizens of the travelers from the east, Native Americans and Mexicans as United States began its great westward expansion.<br /><br />Yet, Pattie also demonstrates how there was great cooperation between groups, for example when he aided Mexicans, Native Americans, missionaries and settlers with smallpox vaccinations.<br /><br />It is essential reading for anyone interested in finding out more about the Old West and life of this fascinating American frontiersman.<br /><br />James O. Pattie first published his account <em> The Personal Narrative of James O. Pattie of Kentucky</em> in 1831 and he passed away in 1851.<br />

<b><h2>Kit Carson is the archetypal hero of the American frontier.</h2></b><br /><br />We have all read of his actions in dime novels and lionizing biographies.<br /><br /><b><em>But who was the real Kit Carson?</em></b><br /><br />It is rare that this question can be answered by the subject themselves, but <em>Kit Carson’s Autobiography</em> allows the reader a brilliant view into the story of this remarkable man through his own words.<br /><br />The autobiography was found by mere chance in the early twentieth century by Mrs. Pierce Butler and Milo Milton Quaife as they were searching through the Ayer Collection of Americana at the Newberry Library, and now with the assistance of Dr. Quaife’s editing can be enjoyed by all.<br /><br />The book uncovers all the details of Carson’s life on the plains and in the mountains of the Far West in modest, but truthful style. <br /><br />Beginning with his childhood and escape from dull life in Missouri at the age of sixteen, Carson’s autobiography exposes how he spent the next thirty years of his life as a frontiersman in the wild lands of the west. <br /><br />The book reveals Carson’s view of life as a trapper, Indian fighter, guide and buffalo hunter, and gives details on his experiences in some of the famous expeditions with Ewing Young and John C. Frémont. <br /><br />The rough experiences of his life are told in a frank manner that transport the reader to the world of this illiterate frontier legend.<br /><br />Kit Carson, born Christopher Houston Carson, was an American mountain man, wilderness guide, Indian agents and U. S. Army officer. His understated nature belied confirmed reports of his fearlessness, combat skills, tenacity, and profound effect on the westward expansion of the United States. His autobiography was dictated to a friend in 1856 but was not fully published until the twentieth century. This edition, edited by Milo Milton Quaife, was first published in 1935. Carson passed away in 1868 and Quaife passed away in 1959.<br />
