📒The Outlaws Of Cave In Rock ✍ Otto A. Rothert
✏The Outlaws of Cave in Rock Book Summary : This book is intended to give the authentic story of the famous Cave-in-Rock of the lower Ohio River, as collected from historic and romantic sources, and to present verified accounts of the most notorious of those highwaymen and river pirates who in the early days of the middle West and South filled the Mississippi basin with the alarm and terror of their crimes and exploits. All the criminals herein treated made their headquarters at one time or another in this famous cavern. It became a natural, safe hiding-place for the pirates who preyed on the flatboat traffic before the days of steamboats. It came also to serve the same purpose for highwaymen infesting the old Natchez Trace and other land trails north and south. A century ago and more, its rock-ribbed walls echoed the drunken hilarity of villains and witnessed the death struggles of many a vanished man. Today this former haunt of criminals is as quiet as a tomb. Nothing is left in the Cave to indicate the outrages that were committed there in the olden days. This classic includes the following chapters: The Purpose of this Narrative The Lair of the Outlaws Piracy and Rough Life on the River The Harpes—A Terrible Frontier Story The Harpes—Renewal of the Terror The Harpes—Big Harpe’s Ride to Death The Harpes—Mysteries and Fate of Survivors Mason—Soldier, Pirate, Highwayman Mason—On the Natchez Trace Mason—Trapped and Tried Mason and Harpe—Double-Cross and Double Death Coiners at the Cave The Ford’s Ferry Mystery Paying the Penalty The Cave in Fiction

For almost half a century, notorious rogues such as the Alstons, the Harpes, the Sturdivants, Samuel Mason, James Ford, John Crenshaw, Logan Belt and Duff the Counterfeiter all operated out of the cave's dark interior. Todd Carr follows the folklore of the horse thieves, pirates and highwaymen clinging to the shadows of the legendary river bluff.

📒Southern Queen ✍ Thomas Ruys Smith
✏Southern Queen Book Summary : New Orleans occupies a singular position within American life. Drawing deeply from Old World traditions and New World possibilities, the port city of the Mississippi has proved a lure to an extraordinary variety of travellers from its very earliest days. New Orleans has always been a world city like no other: it combines the magnolia and moonlight appeal of Southern romanticism, a popular sense of exoticism and decadence, the hint of illicit sex, and a cultural history without compare. However, alongside the glamour there runs another story - of tension, conflict, hardship and destruction. It was in the nineteenth century that the city's most distinctive characteristics were forged, and chapters will be based around signal moments that reveal the city's essential qualities: the Battle of New Orleans in 1815; the World's Fair in 1884; the establishment of Storyville in 1897. Whilst painting a portrait of the public face of New Orleans, the book will look behind the carnival mask to explore aspects of the city's history which have so often been kept hidden from view.

✏Wyoming Road Trip by the Mile Marker Travel Vacation Guide to Yellowstone Grand Teton Devils Tower Oregon Trail Camping Hiking Tourism More Book Summary : Yellowstone National Park is the focal point of Wyoming tourism; however, there is so much more if you know where to look. From rolling prairie, to badlands, to deep forests, to high mountain lakes, and breathtaking peaks, Wyoming's diverse landscape is second to none. In addition, the Wyoming plains contain a rich history of pioneer trails that served as the gateway to the west throughout the 19th century. Most Wyoming travel guides are written to explain tourist attractions in detail once you are already there and require much time and effort to plot a course across the state. This remarkable guide, on the other hand, has the entire state laid out by the highway mile markers so you will always know what is ahead and exactly how to get there. The book is laid out in a clear and concise report style format with brief descriptions, condensed information and a star rating system that allows you to easily make informed decisions about what to visit. Detailed directions, GPS coordinates and elevations are provided for 1900 entries, including: nearly 600 natural, scenic and historic attractions; nearly 100 easily accessible hiking trails; over 300 public campgrounds and dispersed camping areas; over 30 rest areas; and over 60 RV dump stations. It makes an excellent companion book to any other Wyoming travel book and pays for itself many times over in time and fuel savings. NOTES: Due to the extensive amount of information contained in the book, it is not a pocket guide but instead measure 8.3 x 11.7 x 0.5 inches. There are no photos, but dozens of color photos can be seen on the book website. Complete coverage of Yellowstone National Park, Grand Teton National Park, Devils Tower National Monument, Fossil Butte National Monument, Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area, Fort Laramie National Historic Site, Medicine Lodge State Archaeological Site, Snowy Range, Bighorn Mountains, Wind River Mountains, Sinks Canyon State Park, Guernsey State Park, Glendo State Park, Keyhole State Park, Green River Lakes, Casper Mountain Park, Jackson Hole and much more.
