              Meshach Browning spent decades as a professional hunter and trapper of bears, boars and deer in rural Maryland during the early 1800s - this is his story, in his own words. Born in modest circumstances, Browning grew up at a time when the USA as a nation was in its infancy, with ...much of the population living in rural areas. From his youth, the author vowed to be self-sufficient, leaving his home and first love to hone his hunting skills. Returning with money gained from selling pelts and meat, it is then that Meshach contemplates hunting as a career. The equipment the author used is much inferior to today's. Meshach's use of a musket gun - whose reliability is demonstrated as poor in several instances - leads him to rely on his skills in close quarters combat. On multiple hunts, described with stunning vividness in these pages, Browning's ability to battle animals in melee saves his life. Dangers of his trade are balanced by its lucrativeness: bear meat and pelt for instance fetched high prices.

              Thy Son Liveth: World War One History - Letters from an American Soldier to His Mother (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              The moving and eloquent letters of a young American soldier fighting in the maelstrom of the Western Front in World War One are an uplifting example of the human spirit. Published in 1919, less than a year after the terrible conflict ended, this book is an amalgamation of a serie...s of letters written by a young soldier. Addressing his mother with well-mannered affection and devotion, the author describes the conditions on the front; his fond memories of childhood; his fellow company of soldiers; and the auxiliary and medical support. Brimming with youthful exuberance and confidence, the author demonstrates a gift for words and poetic eloquence, alluding on occasion to the great writers he'd read. Convinced of the eternal and undying power of the human struggle, a memorable reflection of this brave soldier runs as follows: There is no death. Life goes on without hindrance or handicap. The one thing that troubles the men who come here is the fact that the ones that loved them are in agony.
