The exciting adventures that slipped through the pages of history about Black Cowboys, Pioneers, Soldiers and Mountain Men are resurrected in Once Upon a Time in the Black West, a collection of beautifully woven short stories authored by Dr. Robert H. Miller. When you read along with the Old Cowboy narrating his adventures with his trusty canine companion Sundown, you’ll be drawn back into a different place and era.When the Old Cowboy speaks in a jargon that reflects his western heritage, you’ll root for the likes of Nat Love. At the tender age of fifteen in 1869, he rode into Dodge City Kansas in its heyday and was enamored at his first glimpse of cowboys and decided he wouldn’t be anything in life other than this. Again, there is an interesting story about how a young man of nineteen, half Cherokee-Indian and half African-American turned to a life of crimes. He watched his Native American family gets swallowed up by America’s expansion into the West. After attending the Carlisle School for Indians in Pennsylvania, young Crawford changed his name to “Cherokee Bill.” And the last story in this enthralling volume, the legend of “stagecoach” Mary Fields.“After growing up on a plantation with her childhood friend, they reconnected thirty years later and she got Mary a job as a stagecoach driver carrying the United States mail. This is the first volume of many more thrilling stories to come in Once Upon a Time in the Black West. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Robert H. Miller.

'It's a rollicking tale that brings to life the antic atmosphere of America in the 'Me' Decade' Wall Street Journal 'A madcap chase... this is a well-written chronicle of 28 months when the world went slightly mad' Sunday Times 'A suitably head-spinning account of LSD High Priest Dr Timothy Leary' Mail on Sunday On the moonlit evening of September 12, 1970, an ex-Harvard professor with a genius IQ studies a twelve-foot high fence topped with barbed wire. A few months earlier, Dr. Timothy Leary, the High Priest of LSD, had been running a gleeful campaign for California governor against Ronald Reagan. Now, Leary is six months into a ten-year prison sentence for the crime of possessing two marijuana cigarettes. Aided by the radical Weather Underground, Leary's escape from prison is the counterculture's union of "dope and dynamite," aimed at sparking a revolution and overthrowing the government. Inside the Oval Office, President Richard Nixon drinks his way through sleepless nights as he expands the war in Vietnam and plots to unleash the United States government against his ever-expanding list of domestic enemies. Antiwar demonstrators are massing by the tens of thousands; homemade bombs are exploding everywhere; Black Panther leaders are threatening to burn down the White House; and all the while Nixon obsesses over tracking down Timothy Leary, whom he has branded "the most dangerous man in America." Based on freshly uncovered primary sources and new firsthand interviews, THE MOST DANGEROUS MAN IN AMERICA is an American thriller that takes readers along for the gonzo ride of a lifetime. Spanning twenty-eight months, President Nixon's careening, global manhunt for Dr. Timothy Leary winds its way among homegrown radicals, European aristocrats, a Black Panther outpost in Algeria, an international arms dealer, hash-smuggling hippies from the Brotherhood of Eternal Love, and secret agents on four continents, culminating in one of the trippiest journeys through the American counterculture.

New York Times Best SellerNamed one of the 10 best books of the year by San Francisco Chronicle, USA Today, and Chicago TribuneA masterly work of literary journalism about a senseless murder, a relentless detective, and the great plague of homicide in AmericaNational Book Critics Circle Award finalistNamed one of the best books of the year by The New York Times Book Review, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, The Economist, The Globe and Mail, BookPage, Kirkus Reviews On a warm spring evening in South Los Angeles, a young man is shot and killed on a sidewalk minutes away from his home, one of the thousands of Black Americans murdered that year. His assailant runs down the street, jumps into an SUV, and vanishes, hoping to join the scores of killers in American cities who are never arrested for their crimes. But as soon as the case is assigned to Detective John Skaggs, the odds shift. Here is the kaleidoscopic story of the quintessential but mostly ignored American murder - a “ghettoside” killing, one young Black man slaying another - and a brilliant and driven cadre of detectives whose creed is to pursue justice for forgotten victims at all costs. Ghettoside is a fast-paced narrative of a devastating crime, an intimate portrait of detectives and a community bonded in tragedy, and a surprising new lens into the great subject of why murder happens in our cities - and how the epidemic of killings might yet be stopped. Praise for Ghettoside“A serious and kaleidoscopic achievement... [Jill Leovy is] a crisp writer with a crisp mind and the ability to boil entire skies of information into hard journalistic rain.” (Dwight Garner, The New York Times)“Masterful...gritty reporting that matches the police work behind it.” (Los Angeles Times)“Moving and engrossing.” (San Franc 1.

Is a Perfect Storm the Perfect Time for a Murder? 'Another gem from John Grisham' Observer When Hurricane Leo threatens Florida's Camino Island, the Governor is quick to issue an evacuation order. Most residents flee but a small group of diehards decide to ride it out. Amongst them is Bruce Cable, proprietor of Bay Books in downtown Santa Rosa. The hurricane is devastating: homes and condos are levelled, hotels and storefronts ruined, streets flooded, and a dozen people are killed. One of the victims is Nelson Kerr, a friend of Bruce's who wrote timely political thrillers. But evidence suggests that the storm wasn't the cause of Nelson's death - he had received several mysterious blows to the head. Who would want Nelson dead? The local police are overwhelmed with the aftermath of the storm and in no condition to handle the case. Bruce begins to wonder if the shady characters in Nelson's novels were more fact than fiction. And somewhere on Nelson's computer is the manuscript of his new novel - could the key to the case be right there, in black and white? Bruce starts to look into it and what he finds between the lines is more shocking than any of Nelson's plot twists - and far more dangerous. Gripping, compelling and pacy, this exceptional new thriller from international bestseller John Grisham is the perfect escapist read this summer. *************************************** Praise for Camino Winds: 'In American icon John Grisham's new novel, Camino Winds, an odd assortment of mystery and crime authors, some of them felons themselves, discover one of their colleagues has been murdered during the fury of a massive hurricane-the perfect crime scene' Delia Owens, author of Where the Crawdads Sing 'The Camino Island series, featuring trouble-prone bookseller Bruce Cable, is a perfect escapist mix of detective action, insider riffs on the literary world - and even a little romance' Mail on Sunday 'Camino Winds has all the usual Grisham hallmarks - a pacy plot and tension-filled scenes' Independent 'Another compelling read from Grisham, and will satisfy old fans and please new readers alike' Press Association 'The novel has enough plot twists to keep you engaged' The Herald
