9 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Battle of the Alamo is one of the most dramatic moments in American history, a stirring saga that has become a modern myth in which all Americans, and especially Texans, take great pride. Poet, novelist, and historian John Myers Myers gives us an account of this American symbol. With exhaustive research and obvious passion for his subject, Myers evokes the situation and characters of the legendary siege, bringing to life such figures as Bowie, Travis, Crockett, and Santa Ana. Here is the "master tale of the American frontier" with all the facts behind the genuine heroism that has made the story immortal."

After the American Revolution, Jonathan Zane becomes a celebrated scout on the frontier. His adventurous spirit and love of the wild lead him to Fort Henry, scene of countless Indian attacks. Farmers have been murdered, women abducted, cabins burned. Zane teams up with a legendary scout to mete out justice to Indians and inciting outlaws, and settlers begin to enjoy the lush Ohio Valley in peace. One pioneer hopes to end Zane's career as a tireless protector. Spirited and beguiling Betty Sheppard begs him to give up his lonely borderman existence. Duty commands, however, that he resist all charms except those of the forest trails
The spirit of the border by Zane Grey( )

7 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The U.S. frontier in the 1700s produced some men of utter ruthlessness, and Jim girty was one of the worst. Living among the Delaware Indians in the Ohio Valley, girty and his brothers incited acts of savagery and war against the white settlers. One of Jim Girty's targets was the Village of Peace, a settlement of Christian indians who had been converted by Moravian missionaries. Under the preaching of Rev. jim Downs, the Christian faith was gaining a foothold. Girty and his ruffians, playing on the fear and hostility of surrounding tribes, incited them to gather at the village, where they threw the ominous war club on the ground. Lewis Wetzel, a lonely, taciturn hunter whose family had been the victim of delaware atrocities, swore revenge on Girty. The intrepid Wetzel, called "Deathwind" by the Delawares, had saved Fort Henry from Indian attack, but was he any match for the odious Girty?

The economics and politics of race : [an international perspective] by Thomas Sowell( )

7 editions published between 1989 and 2012 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How much of a racial group's economic fate is determined by the surrounding society it lives in, and how much by internal patterns that follow that same group around the world? Using an international framework to analyze a group of differences, Sowell has pioneered a new approach for pursuing this important study, utilizing historical experience and empirical data. He finds that the social and economic patterns among Italians in Australia and Argentina are similar in many respects to those of Italians in Italy or the United States. And, though blacks have not faced the same massive and rigid oppression in Brazil as in the United States, economic differences between blacks and whites are significantly greater in Brazil
Losing ground : American social policy, 1950-1980 by Charles A Murray( )

8 editions published between 1989 and 2012 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning in the 1950s, America entered a period of unprecedented social reform. This book demonstrates how the social programs of the last two decades have had the unintended and perverse effect of slowing and even reversing earlier progress in reducing poverty, crime, ignorance, and discrimination. Using widely understood and accepted data, it conclusively demonstrates that the amalgam of reforms from 1965 to 1970 actually made matters worse. Why? Charles Murray's answers to this question will please neither radical liberals nor radical conservatives. He offers no easy solutions; but by forcing us to face fundamental intellectual and moral problems about whom we want to help and how, Losing Ground marks an important first step in rethinking social policy

Busy bodies by Leland Smith Burns( Recording )

2 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In our affluent society, technology was supposed to free us for greater leisure time and creativity. Instead, the demands of our increasingly complex lives have come up against the unyielding 24-hour day. Today many Americans are harried and frustrated with their lives, despite being richer in material goods. We have become Busy Bodies, working frantically to maintain our standard of living but not seeming to get much satisfaction. Lee Burns explains what he calls The paradox of the good life. With humor and wit, he shows how this obsession with time has crept into every aspect of our lives, from our changing romantic and eating habits to the way we run our economy and politics
