Strap on your motorcycle helmet, slip on your leather jacket, boots and gloves. Join the Gasoline Tramp on the first and wildest motorcycle ride around the world.Described as the “longest, most difficult and most perilous motorcycle journey ever attempted,” this book recounts the 1912-1913 motorcycle ride around the world by Carl Stearns Clancy. After he completed his record setting global circumnavigation he compiled his notes and magazine articles in two long lost notebooks.100 years after Clancy’s ‘round the world motorcycle adventure his work has been published as The Gasoline Tramp. Whether the reader is a history buff or motorcycling enthusiast, Clancy’s view of the world from atop a motorcycle was never seen before, and likely will never be again. Bad roads, guns, sickness, a crashed and broken motorcycle, corrupt officials and wild animals, Clancy faced them all. He rode his 1912 Henderson motorcycle where no man had ever ridden before.Clancy left his home in America as admittedly a 21 year-old boy. 18,000 miles and 10 months later he returned as a self-described man. He crossed America, Europe, Africa and Asia on his journey. His ride around the world truly defines what motorcycle adventure means.

When author Rod Leger got drafted in the middle of 1966, he was in his freshman year of college. The next few years transformed his life. In this memoir, he recalls his feelings as a college student in the period leading up to the war. At the time, he never considered that the war might not be the best idea. After all, if the country was drafting young men to fight and die overseas, then it must have been right. He enlisted in the US Navy’s American Seabees, and because he completed a year of college, he was designated as a “striker” and trained as a builder. Although he spent some time in the States, he was destined to go overseas to Vietnam, where he served two tours of duty. As a member of the Seabees, he helped bring free medical care to outlying villages. The Seabees built permanent clinics, constructed roads, improved or installed infrastructure, provided clean water wells, and improved the quality of life for many Vietnamese citizens. The members of Leger’s squad also made it a personal mission to help an area orphanage. In A Tramp’s Tour, Leger shares the story of his Vietnam experience and of how the Seabees lived up to their motto: “We build for the fighters, we fight for the builders.”

When the railroad stretched its steel rails across the American West in the 1870s, it opened up a vast expanse of territory with very few people but enormous agricultural potential: a second Western frontier, the garden West. Agriculture quickly followed the railroads, making way for Kansas wheat and Colorado sugar beets and Washington apples. With this new agriculture came an unavoidable need for harvest workers—for hands to pick the apples, cotton, oranges, and hops; to pull and top the sugar beets; to fill the trays with raisin grapes and apricots; to stack the wheat bundles in shocks to be pitched into the maw of the threshing machine. These were not the year-round hired hands but transients who would show up to harvest the crop and then leave when the work was finished. Variously called bindlestiffs, fruit tramps, hoboes, and bums, these men—and women and children—were vital to the creation of the West and its economy. Amazingly, it is an aspect of Western history that has never been told. In Hoboes: Bindlestiffs, Fruit Tramps, and the Harvesting of the West, the award-winning historian Mark Wyman beautifully captures the lives of these workers. Exhaustively researched and highly original, this narrative history is a detailed, deeply sympathetic portrait of the lives of these hoboes, as well as a fresh look at the settling and development of the American West.

“It was in a church in Munich that I saw him.... “One moment I saw the overcoat and the brow hat; the next, a blue uniform and a visored cap with its skull and crossbones. It came back with a rush: The place was Ravensbruck and the man who was making his way forward has been a guard—one of the most cruel guards. “Now he was in front of me, hand thrust out. I was face to face with one of my captors and my blood seemed to freeze. “‘Fraulein, will you forgive me?’” Communicating her experience of God’s guidance, forgiveness and power, Corrie was still challenged to live fully the truths she had learned. In her imprisonment and later her world travels, her life continued to declare that “there is no pit so deep that Jesus’ love is not deeper still.”

The Trans-Canada Highway is the only federal highway in Canada that, with a few junctions, forms a link system through ten provinces of the country. Covering more than seven thousand kilometers, the TCH is the only continuous transcontinental road of Canada and the third long-est road of the world. The Trans-Siberian Road in Russia and Highway 1 in Australia are longer. The Yellowhead Highway forms the northern branch of the TCH in the western provinces. Although the Trans-Canada Highway was opened in 1962, it was completed in 1970 and is mostly four-lane and crossing-free.

Widespread law enforcement or formal policing outside of cities appeared in the early 20th century around the same time the early film industry was developing--the two evolved in tandem, intersecting in meaningful ways. Much scholarship has focused on portrayals of the criminal in early American cinema, yet little has been written about depictions of the criminal's antagonist. This history examines how different on-screen representations shifted public perception of law enforcement--initially seen as a suspicious or intrusive institution, then as a power for the common good.
