DEADWOOD, DAKOTA TERRITORIES, 1876: Legendary gunman Wild Bill Hickcock and his friend Charlie Utter have come to the Black Hills town of Deadwood fresh from Cheyenne, fleeing an ungrateful populace. Bill, aging and sick but still able to best any man in a fair gunfight, just wants to be left alone to drink and play cards. But in this town of played-out miners, bounty hunters, upstairs girls, Chinese immigrants, and various other entrepeneurs and miscreants, he finds himself pursued by a vicious sheriff, a perverse whore man bent on revenge, and a besotted Calamity Jane. Fueled by liquor, sex, and violence, this is the real wild west, unlike anything portrayed in the dime novels that first told its story.

The Spanish Acequias Of San Antonio Signed, I. Waynne Cox
5 I. Waynne Cox The Spanish Acequias Of San Antonio Signed
Maverick Publishing Company 2004-10-30 189327134X / 9781893271340 First Edition Hardcover Collectible: Like New Like New Hardcover Signed by Other
Inscribed to Gale and Signed by publisher and by Darla Cox for Waynne Cox on first title page. Also signed by published below the the publisher mark on title page.This is the first book on the remarkable 50 mile Spanish era acequia system that supplied water to early San Antonio. It is believed to have been the most extensive such network within the present day United States. One of the acequias, serving lands near Mission Espada, remains in use. Its 1730s stone aqueduct is a significant tourist attraction.San Antonio's founding was due to the presence of two major sources of water, San Pedro Springs and the headwaters of the San Antonio River. From these was developed perhaps the most extensive acequia system within the present day United States. The network leading from six acequias originally served both the civilian community and five Spanish missions. Their often erratic courses determined property lines and the winding paths of many present day streets.Longtime archeologist Waynne Cox, who uncovered many forgotten remains of the system, outlines acequia technology as well as the construction, evolution and, in most cases, the closing by the early twentieth century of San Antonio's acequias. His pioneering account draws from a wealth of new information unearthed in the city's earliest municipal records. The book's 23 illustrations include 8 maps, plus notes, a bibliography and an index.

The Evangelical President: George Bush's Struggle to Spread a Moral Democracy Throughout the World, Sammon, Bill
11 Sammon, Bill The Evangelical President: George Bush's Struggle to Spread a Moral Democracy Throughout the World
Regnery Publishing 2007-09-25 1596985186 / 9781596985186 First Edition Collectible: Like New Like New 
First edition. Unread Look at the polls today and you might think President Bush is a failure. The media is relentlessly hostile to him. His party lost both houses of Congress in the 2006 election. And yet...and yet, his presidency could be one of the most important in modern times. George W. Bush not only faced an unprecedented attack on the American homeland, but he also responded with an ambitious effort to remake the world -- an effort being fought in Afghanistan and Iraq and in smaller skirmishes around the globe, an effort that for all its setbacks still might succeed, with revolutionary consequences. New York Times bestselling author and acclaimed White House reporter Bill Sammon is a true insider, and in his new book, The Evangelical President, he offers a snapshot of the Bush administration from winter 2005 to summer 2007. This momentous time mixed triumph and disaster-from the triumph of the successful tracking and killing of Al Qaeda's terrorist mastermind Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and the spectacularly successful Iraqi elections, to the disaster of the subsequent unraveling in Iraq and American voters' repudiation of Bush in the congressional elections of 2006. But through it all, Sammon shows that President Bush took the high road, fighting to spread moral democracy around the world while the low-minded press focused on Vice President Cheney's accidental shooting of a friend while hunting and Virginia senator George Allen's use of the word macaca on the campaign trail. In this far-reaching book, Sammon details:* Why Bush believes the Republicans will hold the White House in 2008-and his candid assessment of Barack Obama* Why the Supreme Court's ruling on the partial-birth abortion ban was a victory and vindication for Bush* Why Bush is determined to press ahead with his policy in Iraq, despite his party's loss in Congress* Why Bush has offered advice to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton* How the media has continuously underestimated President Bush, mocking him for his faith and ignoring his achievements.The Evangelical President is an unforgettable glimpse of a President at war, supported by an evangelical belief that tyranny should be overthrown, democracy supported, and America defended, combined with a steely stubbornness to see those goals through.
