Unhappily Married â?? Single, Kinky, and Polyamorous

by Veronica Red

This book denotes the funny journey of one woman going from being unhappily married to single, kinky, and polyamorous all in a single year. The book is full of puns and snarky sarcasm. It includes author written guides to Tinder, FetLife, and pronouns, but since the author refuses to take herself too seriously, everything should be taken with a grain of salt. If you don’t like puns, snark, or wanton stories, you won’t like this book.

True Life Story: Rising Wolf the White Blackfoot: Hugh Monroe’s Story of His First Year on the Plains

by James Willard Schultz

This eBook has been formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices.
“One of the greatest pleasures of my long life on the plains was my intimate friendship with Hugh Monroe, or Rising Wolf, whose tale of his first experiences upon the Saskatchewan-Missouri River plains is set forth in Rising Wolf just as I had it from him before the lodge fires of the long ago. At first an engagé of the Hudson’s Bay Company, then of the American Fur Company, and finally free trapper, Hugh Monroe saw more “new country” and had more adventures than most of the early men of the West. During the last years of his long life he lived much with his grandson, William Jackson, ex-Custer scout, who was my partner, and we loved to have him with us. Slender of figure, and not tall, blue-eyed and once brown-haired, he must have been in his time a man of fine appearance. Honest he was and truthful. Kind of heart and brave. A good Christian, too, and yet with no small faith in the gods of his Blackfoot people. And he was a man of tremendous vitality. Up to the very last he went about with his loved flintlock gun, trapping beavers and shooting an occasional deer. He died in his ninety-eighth year, and we buried him in the Two Medicine Valley, under the shadow of the cliffs over which he had so many times helped the Pi-kun-i stampede herds of buffalo to their death, and in sight of that great, sky-piercing height of red rock on the north side of the Two Medicine Lake, which we named Rising Wolf Mountain. It is a fitting monument to the man who was the first of his race to see it, and the great expanse it overlooks.”

The History of the Black Hawk War & Autobiography of the Sauk Leader, the Great Black Hawk: Including the Autobiography of the Sauk Leader Black Hawk

by Black Hawk

This eBook has been formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices.
The Black Hawk War was a conflict between the United States and Native Americans led by Black Hawk, a Sauk leader. The war erupted soon after Black Hawk and a group of Sauks, Meskwakis, and Kickapoos, known as the “British Band”, crossed the Mississippi River, into the U.S. state of Illinois, from Iowa Indian Territory in April 1832. Black Hawk’s motives were ambiguous, but he was apparently hoping to avoid bloodshed while resettling on tribal land that had been ceded to the United States in the disputed 1804 Treaty of St. Louis.
Black Hawk, born Ma-ka-tai-me-she-kia-kiak, (1767-1838) was a band leader and warrior of the Sauk American Indian tribe in what is now the Midwest of the United States. Although he had inherited an important historic medicine bundle from his father, he was not a hereditary civil chief. Black Hawk earned his status as a war chief or captain by his actions: leading raiding and war parties as a young man, and a band of Sauk warriors during the Black Hawk War of 1832.

Killer Stripper : The True Story of Cherrylle Dell: A Collection of True Crime

by Jessi Dillman

Cherrylle Dell got married when she was just seventeen years old, to a man two years her senior named Scott. The relationship was strained from the start, but the couple managed to make it work for more than two decades before they finally separated in 1992.

In 1995, when Scott Dell’s body was found in his farmhouse outside of Killaloe, Ontario, police initially determined that it was a suicide. The depression was to blame – he’d been struggling with the separation from his wife of twenty years, and had been diagnosed with cancer. On the night of December 29th, Scott consumed a lethal dose of wine laced with antifreeze, and no one thought anything more of it.

But only two years later, Cherrylle Dell was charged with her estranged husband’s death. By January of 2001, Cherrylle had failed to convince the judge of her innocence, and had been convicted of first-degree murder – facing a long sentence of life in prison.

And that wasn’t the end for Cherrylle. In April 2001, the ex-stripper stood trial again for first-degree murder – this time, though, the charges were in connection with a fire in August 1997 that had claimed the life of her past love, Nancy Fillmore.
