by Allan Pinkerton

This eBook has been formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices.  
Excerpt:
“The following pages narrate a story of detective experience, which, in many respects, is alike peculiar and interesting, and one which evinces in a marked degree the correctness of one of the cardinal principles of my detective system, viz.: “That crime can and must be detected by the pure and honest heart obtaining a controlling power over that of the criminal.” The history of the old man who, although in the possession of unlimited wealth, leaves the shores of his native land to escape the imagined dangers of assassination, and arrives in America, only to meet his deathâ??violent and mysterious.”The Expressman and the Detective Allan Pinkerton tells how his relatively small P.I. firm succeeded in this first big case. Tens of thousands of dollars had gone missing. The suspect was too smart for the police so the robbed company asked Pinkerton to step in. Nine detectives worked this case for ten months. The suspect did take them on a very long chase. Some of the detective travelled miles and miles following the suspect while others followed his wife.

by George Washington

This eBook has been formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices.
George Washington is an American hero whose fame is not wholly accounted for by the record of his life. Like Lincoln he was infinitely greater than anything he did. A military genius, he wrested liberty from tyranny; a statesman, he helped evolve a stable government from political chaos; a patriot, he refused a crown. Wisdom, patience, tolerance, courage, consecration to the righteous cause animated his every act.

The Road Behind Me: The Lie of Hannah

by RjCook

It’s been said a man falls in love an average of three times in his life. If that’s an accurate assessment, it stands to reason two of those three must end in heartbreak.

Author RjCook had the misfortune of experiencing two of his three heartaches before the age of twenty – both within the same year separated by only a few months. The Road behind Me narrates his story of lost love, a tale of a journey, and a late-in-life epiphany all predicated on a single deception that he lived with for the better part of forty years. This memoir tells how, from the summer of 1974 to the summer of 1975, he traveled from New Jersey to California to escape the pain of a broken heart, only to discover that distance did nothing to diminish his memories.

A true story of the author’s failed attempt to create a new life for himself, The Road behind Me shares the adventures he encountered almost a continent away from home. It’s a story of growing up and falling in love in suburban New Jersey; of losing love and seeking refuge in the land of milk, honey, and Disney; and of returning home a defeated and forlorn road warrior-all during the time of peace and love, Woodstock, Nixon, and Vietnam.



3 Years Among the Comanches (Memoirs): The Narrative of the Texas Ranger

by Nelson Lee

This eBook has been formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices.
This narrative has been recorded, as received from Nelson Lee’s lips, from day to day, not precisely in his own words, inasmuch as he is not an educated, though an intelligent man, but his history is told substantially as he relates it. Of the entire truth of his statements, however marvelous many of them may appear, or however much the incredulous may be inclined to dispute, there can be no reasonable doubt. Evidences corroborating them are abundant. He bears upon his person the visible scars of all the wounds he is represented as having received in the border wars of Texas, and while a prisoner among the Indians. He is familiar, to the minutest detail, with the history of those stirring times when Jack Hays, and Ben McCullough, and Ewen Cameron, at the head of the hardy Rangers were wont to sally forth from the grand square of San Antonio, to uphold the banner of the “lone star” against Mexican domination.

This incredible biography gives us a deep insight into to life of the royal family during the greatest era in British History!
Edward VII (1841-1910), the eldest son of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, Edward was related to royalty throughout Europe. Before his accession to the throne, he was heir apparent and held the title of Prince of Wales for longer than any of his predecessors. During the long reign of his mother, he was largely excluded from political power, and came to personify the fashionable, leisured elite. He travelled throughout Britain performing ceremonial public duties, and represented Britain on visits abroad. His tours of North America in 1860 and the Indian subcontinent in 1875 were popular successes, but despite public approval his reputation as a playboy prince soured his relationship with his mother.Content:An AppreciationBirth and Early YearsThe King’s BoyhoodOxford, Cambridge, and the CurraghThe King’s Visit to Canada and the United StatesDeath of the Prince Consortâ??Tour in the EastThe Wedding of King Edward and Queen AlexandraEarly Married LifeTheir Majesties’ Tour in Egypt and the MediterraneanThe Franco-Prussian Warâ??The King’s Illness1873-1875The King’s Tour in IndiaQuiet Years of Public Work, 1876-1887â??Visit to Irelandâ??Queen Victoria’s Golden JubileeSilver Wedding of King Edward and Queen Alexandraâ??Engagement and Marriage of Princess LouiseThe Baccarat Caseâ??Birth of Lady Alexandra Duffâ??The King’s Fiftieth Birthdayâ??Illness of Prince GeorgeThe Duke of Clarence and AvondaleChapter XVII.
