<h2>Fascinated by the expeditions of Sir Francis Drake and Captain James Cook?</h2><br /><br /><b>Then you鈥檒l love this account of the Centurion鈥檚 circumnavigation of the globe, one of the greatest accomplishments in the history of maritime exploration and naval warfare.</b><br /><br />In 1740, George Anson and his fleet set off to harass Spanish commerce in the Pacific and attack towns on the coasts of Chile and Peru.<br /><br />Four years later, over half the men had died and of the seven ships which left Portsmouth only the Centurion had completed its objective of attacking Spanish possessions around the globe.<br /><br />Although this journey came at the cost of numerous lives and ships, the Centurion had succeeded in capturing the biggest prize of all time, the Acapulco galleon.<br /><br />Captain Philip Saumarez kept a daily record of the voyage around the world in his four log books, which along with a wealth of letters and documents give brilliant insight into life aboard these ships.<br /><br />Leo Heaps has compiled and edited these manuscripts to provide a complete chronicle of the expedition which saw men decimated by scurvy, mutinies among marooned sailors, ships battered by mountainous waves around Cape Horn and eventual glory in the capture of the gold-laden Nuestra Se帽ora de la Covadonga.<br /><br /><em>Log of the Centurion</em> is a unique account of a daring maritime expedition across the high seas of the globe in the mid-eighteenth century. <br /><br />鈥淚t is a tribute to her officers that she not only captured the greatest prize at sea, but that she returned at all.鈥?Christopher Lloyd, former Professor of History at the Royal Naval College, Greenwich<br /><br />鈥淚t is an absorbing tale 鈥?The merit of this book lies in its realistic evocation of the mid-18th century. We have fine descriptions of China and the delicate negotiations conducted with the Manchus for supplies and repairs. Patagonia, Juan Fernandez (Crusoe鈥檚 island), Madeira, and other exotic places are vividly described.鈥?Regis A. Courtemanche, <em>History: Reviews of New Books</em><br />

<p>Nature was a form of religion for naturalist, essayist, and early environmentalist Henry David Thoreau (1817鈥?2). In communing with the natural world, he wished to "live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and 鈥?learn what it had to teach." Toward that end Thoreau built a cabin in the spring of 1845 on the shores of Walden Pond 鈥?on land owned by Ralph Waldo Emerson 鈥?outside Concord, Massachusetts. There he observed nature, farmed, built fences, surveyed, and wrote in his journal.<br />One product of his two-year sojourn was this book 鈥?a great classic of American letters. Interwoven with accounts of Thoreau's daily life (he received visitors and almost daily walked into Concord) are mediations on human existence, society, government, and other topics, expressed with wisdom and beauty of style.<br /><i>Walden</i> offers abundant evidence of Thoreau's ability to begin with observations on a mundane incident or the minutiae of nature and then develop these observations into profound ruminations on the most fundamental human concerns. Credited with influencing Tolstoy, Gandhi, and other thinkers, the volume remains a masterpiece of philosophical reflection.<br />A selection of the Common Core State Standards Initiative.</p><p></p>

<b>"At Bent's Fort, Hobbs went out trapping under the leadership of Kit Carson, and they became lifelong friends. In a short time Hobbs earned the reputation of being an excellent mountaineer, trapper, and as an Indian fighter he was second to none, his education among the Comanche having trained him in all the strategy of the Indians." - Colonel Henry Inman (1897)</b><br /> <br />As detailed by Hobbs in his 1872 book "Wild Life in the Far West, Personal Adventures of a Border Mountain Man," in 1835, when only 16 years-old, he joined a fur-trading expedition under Charles Bent, destined for Bent's Fort, Colorado on the Santa Fe Trail over Pawnee Fork. On this trip Hobbs and his companion Batiste were captured by Comanches after becoming lost. <br /> <br />Hobbs grew to be a great favorite with the Comanche; was given the daughter of Old Wolf in marriage, became a great chief, fought many hard battles with his savage companions, and at last, four years after, was redeemed by Charles Bent, who paid Old Wolf a small ransom for him at the Fort, where the Indians had come to trade. <br /> <br />In describing an Apache raid, Hobbs writes: <br /> <br />"We saw the Indians coming towards us, when they were quite a distance away, and, as we had no natural shelter, it became necessary to devise an artificial one. The baggage was hastily removed from the mules, when they were cast and their feet securely tied. This served a double purpose, as it effectually prevented a stampede and enabled us to use them for purposes of shelter. The cast mules and baggage were arranged in a circle, within which we placed ourselves, and behind this novel breastwork we awaited the attack of the Indians." <br /> <br />At Bent's Fort, Hobbs, now known as "Comanche Jim" went out trapping a party of mountain men led by Kit Carson, and which included Peg-Leg Smith. While living the life of a trapper, Hobbs earned the reputation of being an excellent mountaineer, trapper, and Apache fighter; thus his life with the Comanche prepared Hobbs well for a life in the wilderness of the Great West.<br /> <br />In describing a grizzly bear attack on their party, Hobbs writes: <br />"I saw the bear rushing down the hollow, chasing after Mclntire who was only about ten steps in advance of the beast, and he was running for dear life, and making as much noise as a mad bull. The truth is Mclntire was scared and I hastened to the rescue, first sending my dog forward to help him. Just as the dog reached the bear Mclntire darted behind a tree and flung his hat in the bear's face鈥?"<br /> <br />After going through the Mexican War with an excellent record, Hobbs wandered about the country, now engaged in mining in old Mexico, then fighting the Apache under the orders of the governor of Chihuahua, and at the end of the campaign going back to the Pacific coast, where he entered into new pursuits, such as commercial game hunting, ranching, and mining. Sometimes he was rich, then as poor as one can imagine. He returned to old Mexico in time to become an active partisan in the revolt which overthrew the short-lived dynasty of Maximilian, and was present at the execution of that unfortunate prince. Finally he retired to the home of his childhood in the States. <br /> <br />In his conclusion Hobbs reflects, <br />"In looking back over my life, I find that although I have not, perhaps, always obeyed the Golden Rule, yet it is a great satisfaction to me to think of the numbers of my fellow beings I have been instrumental in saving from death and misery at the hands of savages, and from the horrors of starvation." <br /> <br />About the author: <br />Capt James 鈥淐omanche Jim鈥?Hobbs (1819-1880) had been born in the Shawnee nation, on the Big Blue River, about 23 miles from Independence, Missouri. His early childhood was entrusted to one of his father's slaves. Reared on the eastern limit of the border, he very soon became familiar with the use of the rifle and shot-gun;he was the principal provider of game for his family.<br />

<b></b><h2><b>鈥淧erhaps the best account of the fur trapper in the Rocky Mountains when the trade there was at its peak.鈥?Aubrey L. Haines</b></h2><br /><br />In 1834, Osborne Russell joined an expedition from Boston, under the direction of Nathaniel J. Wyeth, which proceeded to the Rocky Mountains to capitalise on the salmon and fur trade.<br /><br />He would remain there, hunting, trapping, and living off the land, for the next nine years.<br /><br /><em>Journal of a Trapper</em> is his remarkable account of that time as he developed into a seasoned veteran of the mountains and experienced trapper.<br /><br />In Russell鈥檚 own words he explains to the reader 鈥渋f you are in search of the travels of a classical and scientific tourist, please lay this volume down, and pass on, for this simply informs you what a trapper has seen and experienced. But if you wish to peruse a hunter鈥檚 rambles among the wild regions of the Rocky Mountains, please read this鈥?<br /><br />Russell encounters grizzly bears, hunts buffalos, trades with Native Americans and suffers from the extreme conditions of his mountainous environment. His account is written in vivid prose that transports the reader to nineteenth century Northwest America.<br /><br />Of particular note are his descriptions of the landscapes in which he lived. Although it had not been designated a national park during Russell鈥檚 time, his portrayal of Yellowstone is truly breath-taking.<br /><br />This is the perfect book for anyone wishing to find out more about the lives of the mountain men, what they ate, how they hunted, what shelters they used and how they survived in some of the most inhospitable conditions.<br /><br />After this book was written Osborne Russell became a politician who helped form the government of the state of Oregon. He was born in 1814 in Maine. He ran away from home as a young man for a life at sea, but eventually found employment as a trapper. In 1844, he was elected to the second Executive Committee of the Provisional Government of Oregon, but after he was not re-elected he eventually went and lived in California. He died in 1892. This edition was published in 1921.

<b><h2>Kit Carson is the archetypal hero of the American frontier.</h2></b><br /><br />We have all read of his actions in dime novels and lionizing biographies.<br /><br /><b><em>But who was the real Kit Carson?</em></b><br /><br />It is rare that this question can be answered by the subject themselves, but <em>Kit Carson鈥檚 Autobiography</em> allows the reader a brilliant view into the story of this remarkable man through his own words.<br /><br />The autobiography was found by mere chance in the early twentieth century by Mrs. Pierce Butler and Milo Milton Quaife as they were searching through the Ayer Collection of Americana at the Newberry Library, and now with the assistance of Dr. Quaife鈥檚 editing can be enjoyed by all.<br /><br />The book uncovers all the details of Carson鈥檚 life on the plains and in the mountains of the Far West in modest, but truthful style. <br /><br />Beginning with his childhood and escape from dull life in Missouri at the age of sixteen, Carson鈥檚 autobiography exposes how he spent the next thirty years of his life as a frontiersman in the wild lands of the west. <br /><br />The book reveals Carson鈥檚 view of life as a trapper, Indian fighter, guide and buffalo hunter, and gives details on his experiences in some of the famous expeditions with Ewing Young and John C. Fr茅mont. <br /><br />The rough experiences of his life are told in a frank manner that transport the reader to the world of this illiterate frontier legend.<br /><br />Kit Carson, born Christopher Houston Carson, was an American mountain man, wilderness guide, Indian agents and U. S. Army officer. His understated nature belied confirmed reports of his fearlessness, combat skills, tenacity, and profound effect on the westward expansion of the United States. His autobiography was dictated to a friend in 1856 but was not fully published until the twentieth century. This edition, edited by Milo Milton Quaife, was first published in 1935. Carson passed away in 1868 and Quaife passed away in 1959.<br />

脕lvar N煤帽ez Cabeza de Vaca (Jerez de la Frontera, c. 1488/1490/1492 鈥?Seville, c. 1557/1558/1559/1560) was a Spanish explorer of the New World, and one of four survivors of the 1527 Narv謾ez expedition. During eight years of traveling across the US Southwest, he became a trader and faith healer to various Native American tribes before reconnecting with Spanish colonial forces in Mexico in 1536. After returning to Spain in 1537, he wrote an account, first published in 1542 as La Relaci貿n ("The Relation", or in more modern terms "The Account"), which in later editions was retitled Naufragios ("Shipwrecks"). Cabeza de Vaca has been considered notable as a proto-anthropologist for his detailed accounts of the many tribes of American Indians that he encountered.<br />In 1540 Cabeza de Vaca was appointed adelantado of what is now Argentine Republic, where he was governor and captain general of R鉚o de la Plata. He worked to build up the population of Buenos Aires, where settlement had declined due to the poor administration. Cabeza de Vaca was transported to Spain for trial in 1545. Although his sentence was eventually commuted, he never returned to the Americas. He died in Seville.
