Folks. This here is the story of the Loop Garoo Kid. A cowboy so bad he made a working posse of spells phone in sick. A bullwhacker so unfeeling he left the print of winged mice on hides of crawling women. A desperado so onery he made the Pope cry and the most powerful of cattlemen shed his head to the Executioner's swine. And so begins the HooDoo Western by Ishmael Reed, author of Mumbo Jumbo and one of America's most innovative and celebrated writers. Reed demolishes white American history and folklore as well as Christian myth in this masterful satire of contemporary American life. In addition to the black, satanic Loop Garoo Kid, Yellow Back Radio Broke-Down features Drag Gibson (a rich, slovenly cattleman), Mustache Sal (his nymphomaniac mail-order bride), Thomas Jefferson, and many others in a hilarious parody of the old western. 1.

An unemployed man receives an anonymous letter full of cash in the mail. His problems are just beginning.... AnonMan is set in the near future when the water runs out in Las Vegas. An American city is dying, though the people don't know it yet, or care.  Bobby is in a rut. He's an unemployed, degenerate gambler trudging through an unsatisfying life. Some things never change - the water can disappear, but the thirst for gambling never evaporates. His hen-pecking wife constantly hassles him about finding a job, which only exasperates his excessive gambling.  At his wit's end, Bobby finds an anonymous letter in the mail. It's full of cash. A cryptic letter alludes to the cash as payment for a murder. Bobby didn't commit the crime, but he takes the money anyway and blows it at the sportsbook.  Bobby returns home to a marriage in a state of irreconcilable disrepair due to unpaid bills. Yet, there's a glimmer of hope. Another anonymous letter waits in the mailbox. Only this one has no cash. Just a note...and a proposition: Kill a man and receive more money. 1. Language: English.

John Wilkes Booth: By a Man Who Helped Him Esca...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Between the Monday after Abraham Lincoln was shot until the following week, Tom Jones hid John Wilkes Booth in the wilds of Maryland and then helped him get across the Potomac River to Virginia. At the time of the Lincoln assassination, Thomas A. Jones was 45 years old and had spent the years of the American Civil War working with zeal in the Confederate cause in Southern Maryland. He primarily acted as an aid to Confederate spies moving through Charles County and helping the substantial intelligence network by moving mail. By the time that Jones wrote this account of having helped John Wilkes Booth escape, his assessment of Abraham Lincoln had gone through a transformation. As he tells us, the light of reason had been blinded and he now saw Lincoln as a good and great man. This is but one small piece of the drama that changed history. But Jones was there and was part of it. It's an important account that fills in the days between Booth's deed and his capture and death. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian V. Hunt.

The Flight of the Century: Charles Lindbergh an...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In late May 1927, an inexperienced and unassuming 25-year-old Air Mail pilot from rural Minnesota stunned the world by making the first non-stop transatlantic flight. A spectacular feat of individual daring and collective technological accomplishment, Charles Lindbergh's flight from New York to Paris ushered in America's age of commercial aviation. In The Flight of the Century, Thomas Kessner takes a fresh look at one of America's greatest moments, explaining how what was essentially a publicity stunt became a turning point in history. He vividly recreates the flight itself and the euphoric reaction to it on both sides of the Atlantic, and argues that Lindbergh's amazing feat occurred just when the world - still struggling with the disillusionment of World War I - desperately needed a hero to restore a sense of optimism and innocence. Kessner also shows how new forms of mass media made Lindbergh into the most famous international celebrity of his time, casting him in the role of a humble yet dashing American hero of rural origins and traditional values. Much has been made of Lindbergh's personal integrity and his refusal to cash in on his fame. But Kessner reveals that Lindbergh was closely allied with, and managed by, a group of powerful businessmen - Harry Guggenheim, Dwight Morrow, and Henry Breckenridge chief among them - who sought to exploit aviation for mass transport and massive profits. Their efforts paid off as commercial air traffic soared from 6,000 passengers in 1926 to 173,000 passengers in 1929. Kessner's book is the first to fully explore Lindbergh's central role in promoting the airline industry - the rise of which has influenced everything from where we live to how we wage war and do business. The Flight of the Century sheds new light on one of America's fascinatingly enigmatic heroes and most transformative moments. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bob McGraw.
