The Desperate Trail: Tye Watkins Series, Book 4...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Fort Clark was regarrisoned in 1866 and the history of Fort Clark was filled with clashes with the Apache, occasionally with the Comanche, and always with the bandit gangs that crossed freely back and forth across the Border, preying on the homesteaders. The Tye Wakins Series of books attempt to portray this danger. The stories center on Tye, who is Chief of Scouts at Clark in 1868. He is continually putting himself at risk trying to protect the homesteaders living in the area as well as keeping the troops he scouts for out of harm's way. 1. Language: English.

The Treasure of Silver Lake
15,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Treasure of Silver Lake is one of Karl May's most popular books. The bandits are preparing for a major heist. First they want to steal the wages of the lumberjacks at the Black Bear Creek. Then they want to raid a rich farm in Kansas on their way to robbing a railway station that has money for the construction of the Union Railways. Their final target is the Silver Lake that hides an immense treasure. Old Firehand, who is also heading to the Silver Lake to open a mine there, is determined to foil the bandits' plans. He recruits many famous Westerners for his quest. By the time the group arrives to the edge of Kansas, Winnetou, the chief of the Apache, joins them, and fights alongside Old Firehand. To reach the Silver Lake they have to go to Colorado where the Ute tribes are on the warpath. This is when Old Shatterhand and his friends appear, and after four duels for life or death, they unite with Old Firehand's group. They all go to the Silver Lake together. This unabridged English translation retains the exciting adventures, and the strong moral conviction of May's original book, while modernising the style, and editing parts that were erroneous or may evoke bad associations. With this editing the core of May's world, the action, the dreaming of heroic deeds, and the struggle for a kind of justice have become more emphasised, and more accessible to the modern reader.

The Velvet Underground's The Velvet Underground...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In 1966, studios were still more about science than art. Clients who dared make technical suggestions were treated with bemusement, derision or hostility. The Velvets were a young band under constant critical attack, and the pressure to confirm in order to gain acceptance must have been tremendous. Most bands of that era compromised with their record companies, through wholesale revamping of their image, changing or omitting lyrics, creating drastically edited versions for radio airplay, or eliminating songs entirely from their sets and records. With Andy Warhol in the band's corner, such threats were minimized. The Velvet Underground and Nico has influenced the sound of more bands than almost any other album. And remarkably, it still sounds as fresh and challenging today as it did upon its release in 1967. In this book, Joe Harvard covers everything from Lou Reed's lyrical genius to John Cale's groundbreaking instrumentation, and from the creative input of Andy Warhol to the fine details of the recording process. With input from co-producer Norman Dolph and Velvets fan Jonathan Richman, Harvard documents the creation of a record which, in the eyes of many, has never been matched. Joe Harvard was co-founder and owner of Fort Apache Studios. Voted Boston's Best Producer, his playing appears on numerous records by bands including Dinosaur Jr., Throwing Muses, and the Pernice Brothers. 33 1/3 is a new series of short books about critically acclaimed and much-loved albums of the last 40 years. Focusing on one album rather than an artist's entire output, the books dispense with the standard biographical background that fans know already, and cut to the heart of the music on each album. By turns obsessive, passionate, creative, and informed, the books in this series demonstrate many different ways of writing about music. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Marc Vietor.

Black Knights of the Hudson Book II: Boots and ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Black Knights of the Hudson is a series of books about a fictional U.S. Army family from 1860 through World War II. The audiobooks should appeal to listeners who enjoy historical fiction, family sagas, and military fiction. Book II: Boots and Saddles (1868 to 1883) is the second installment in the story of the MacKendrick Army family, who live by West Point's motto of “Duty, Honor, Country”. With the Civil War over, James seeks a return to the cheerful fatalism of the professional soldier, and is even willing to serve in the hated Cavalry. Timothy, cooling his heels in a Staff position, has his hands full with his willful wife who has yet to learn that a good Army wife does not hesitate to follow her husband - even to dismal outposts in the Western territories. She pays a heavy price for her obstinacy and independence in the glittering social whirl of post-Civil War New York. Gwyneth O'Donnell, a young Army brat at an Arizona post, has learned the role of a true Army wife at her mother's knee and is prepared to throw herself into a passionate love for a professional soldier in a way that Timothy's wife cannot match. In Arizona and the turmoil of the Plains, James and Timothy face Apache, Cheyenne, and Sioux in the great Indian wars of the post-Civil War era as they come to terms with a military policy that in one breath wants to protect Indian treaty lands and, in the next, seeks to conquer them in the name of Manifest Destiny. 1.

Project Report from the year 2001 in the subject English - Miscellaneous, grade: 1,0 (A), Dresden Technical University (Institute for Anglistics/American Studies), course: GLC 6 Project, 19 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: When I was a teenager I read several of those books written by Karl May that are set in the 'Wild West.' I was very impressed, not only by the 'Winnetou' trilogy but also because I knew Karl May never went there. - [...] - Ever since then I have wondered about the accuracy and truth of his writings, which I now was given the chance to investigate by visiting a particular state, one he has also used for several of his plots, Arizona. Before I crossed the ocean by plane on January 20, 2000, I knew I would be spending two weeks in Globe, Arizona, adjacent to the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation, and four weeks in Dragoon, Arizona, at the Amerind Foundation, the former to see how a special group of Native Americans is living today, the latter to view reference books. At both places I conducted a depth interview and compared my results to Karl May's 'Winnetou' trilogy, which I read once more. By doing so, I most of all wanted to find out how accurate Karl May describes the country, his characters, and their customs, but also how much exposure certain Americans had had to his works so far, and what their reactions would be to an extract of it, the 'Winnetou' trilogy. With these aims in mind, I conducted my research. I chose interesting passages from the aforementioned trilogy for both my questionnaire and interview questions, which I later asked the native speakers to fill out and answer. In order not to leave out historical research, I visited the Heard Museum in Phoenix, Arizona, and at the Amerind Foundation I surveyed at least ten reference books about Native American peoples, their history and culture. As a result of this research my aims were well fulfilled: Firstly, there are certain topics I can disagree or agree with Karl May about, to various degrees. Secondly, I am more familiar with the exposure that the people I talked to had to Karl May before I stepped into their lives, and thirdly, I experienced their reactions to the events in the 'Winnetou' trilogy. These results met my two expectations: one, Karl May was no historian, and two, his works should be promoted more aggressively in the American Southwest, if not the entire United States.

1,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

'Geronimo's Story of His Life' by Apache War Chief Geronimo as taken down by Stephen M. Barrett, Superintendent of Education, Lawton Oklahoma is an autobiography by the legendary Apache Chief in his own words. Barrett had Geronimo's Apache words translated into English by another Apache, Asa Delugie, a close friend. of Geronimo. In this way Geronimo's words & meanings are genuine & not 'interpreted' by a white man with his own agenda. Geronimo 1829-1909 was a prominent leader of the Bedonkohe Apache who fought against Mexico and the United States for several decades during the Apache Wars because of their expansion into Apache tribal lands. Though outnumbered, Geronimo fought against both Mexican and United States troops from 1858 to 1886 and became famous for his daring exploits and numerous escapes from capture. At the end of his military career, he led a small band of 36 men, women, and children. They evaded thousands of Mexican and American troops for over a year, making him the most famous Native American of the time and earning him the title of the 'worst Indian who ever lived' among the area's white settlers. In this book Geronimo, in his own words, recounts the story of his exciting life as referenced above. He also relates some of the Apache laws, customs, & religious rituals making this a valuable first-hand, eyewitness account of Apache Tribal life. Readers can also decide for themselves if Geronimo was treated fairly by the government after his surrender or not. A short book of 35,200+ words, and approximately 117+ pages at 300 words per page, it also contains the illustrations from the original. It is a must-read for those interested in the Apache Wars & the Native American life of the Southwest.
