The Life and Adventures of James P. Beckwourth: Mountaineer, Scout, and Pioneer, and Chief of the Crow Nation of Indians (Illustrated)

by James P. Beckwourth

James Pierson Beckwourth (1798 or 1800 – 1866 or 1867), born James Beckwith and generally known as, Jim Beckwourth was an American mountain man, fur trader, and explorer. A mulatto born into slavery in Virginia, he was freed by his father (and master) and apprenticed to a blacksmith; later he moved to the American West. As a fur trapper, he lived with the Crow Nation for years. He is credited with the discovery of Beckwourth Pass, through the Sierra Nevada (U.S.) Mountains, between present-day Reno, Nevada, and Portola, California, during the California Gold Rush years, and improved the Beckwourth Trail, which thousands of settlers followed to central California.
He narrated his life story to Thomas D. Bonner, an itinerant justice of the peace. The book was published in New York and London in 1856 as The Life and Adventures of James P. Beckwourth: Mountaineer, Scout and Pioneer, and Chief of the Crow Nation of Indians. A translation was published in France in 1860.
Early historians of the Old West originally considered the book little more than campfire lore. It has since, been reassessed as a valuable source of social history, especially, for life among the Crow, although, not all its details are reliable or accurate. The civil rights movement of the 1960s celebrated Beckwourth as an early African-American pioneer. He has since, been featured as a role model in children’s literature and textbooks.

Out of Biography

by Atma Ananda

Many readers asked me to write autobiography since in all my 25 books and 75 articles on spiritual culture they could find nothing about my own life. This is the result of my philosophical background where it is required to remove anything personal or to abstract ideas from their embodiments. However my phenomenon became so enigmatic that many people got confused if I was doing something myself or only thinking and writing as academic scholar. Actually, my own life was overfull of dramatic experiences and intensive spiritual practice. My path was crossed with too many great and famous teachers and interesting personalities. This life could be cut so many times while starting again in the same body that it was rather ‘series of lives’. It was whole conglomerate of personalities while I really wanted out and this biography has ended my efforts at least for me.

The Other Wife Volume 1: 17 Years As A Polyigimist (The Other Wife I)

by Joan Norman

I opened the door to a very persistent knocking and saw a female police officer standing on my porch. In great astonishment I asked, “May I help you?”

The officer said, “I am looking for Joan Norman. I have a warrant for her arrest. Are you Joan?”

Not being familiar with situations like this, and with great unawareness I answered, “Yes, who is pressing these charges?”

“Your father,” the officer said.

I felt the emotions rising within me, choking off anything I could say. Tears were blurring my vision, and I felt paralyzed for the moment.

Controlling my emotions, I then asked the officer, “What am I being arrested for?”

The officer replied, “Being an unfit mother.” She continued by saying, “I also need to take the children to the Department of Human and Social Services, as they are being taken away from you.”

I said, “I will not take the warrant nor let you in.”

The officer asked, “Can I come in and make a phone call for backup?”

By this time I was very nervous, wondering what in the world I was going to do. If I let the police officer come into the house I would be arrested, but did I have the legal right to not let her in? The fear was building up inside of me to the point that I could hardly think. My head was spinning. Looking at the officer I said, “I cannot let you in.” The officer went back to her car. My mind was racing trying to think of what I could do. There was no way I was going to have my four boys taken from me, let alone be arrested!

Blow Jobs: A Guide to Making it in Show Business, or Not!: A ‘How Not To’ by The Counter Culture Diva

by Dolores DeLuce

BLOW JOBS: A Guide to Making it in Show Business, or NOT! is a cautionary tale–not for the squeamish or faint-of-heart.
Always a loose whore for Show Business, the Counter Culture Diva confesses to doing almost anything to survive in Hollywood…except for taking a day job. She defends her choices: “I needed to keep my calendar open for auditions.”
A “How Not To” filled with juicy, side-splitting autobiographical stories will burst the bubbles of Hollywood dreams and delusions.
Readers who devoured the Counter Culture Diva’s confessions in her first book, My Life, a Four Letter Word, will be delighted to know that Blow Jobs, picks up where that book ended. It takes the reader up and down the ladder to stardom, and brings you up to date, and reveals the fate of this aging Diva.
While dropping more names than the Beverly Hills ‘Who’s Who’, Dolores went from being Dean Martin’s maid to a bimbo’s slave that led to pubic hair trimming on XXX film sets. She dressed David Bowie, and The Ramones and endured humiliation as a nude extra in a Rob Zombie horror classic … and more.
She warns the reader, “If you can’t handle the truth and nothing but the naked truth, beware of BLOW JOBS: A Guide to Making it in Show Business, or NOT!
