How did Cecil Andrus emerge from an ordinary background to become one of not just Idaho's, but the nation's most extraordinary and successful politicians? Through a series of stories and anecdotes, Andrus' long-time press secretary, Chris Carlson, relates a personal reminiscence of Andrus' rise to the governorship, reveals the "political rules" Andrus practiced, and unveils the exceptional personal qualities of the man who, inarguably, has had the greatest impact on Idaho in modern times.

The Ruminator: A Collection of Thoughts and Suggestions on Contrary Thinking
SKU:
Caxton Press

Humphrey B. Neill


"When everybody thinks alike, everyone is likely to be wrong."

The Ruminator is a collection of brief essays by Humphrey B. Neill (1977) that illuminate the way of thinking that a contrarian must cultivate in order to avoid falling into the trap of mass opinion that is so hard for most of us to escape. In The Ruminator the reader will find thought provoking ruminations over the hectic events and conditions that prevailed in the five years between 1968 and 1972; the years during which Neill published a monthly magazine titled The Ruminator and from which these essays are taken.

This expanded 2nd edition contains a new introduction by Shorepoint Capital founder Tim Vanech and an afterword by Albert Neill. Pick up The Ruminator and learn that it pays to be contrary. (((More Info))).
5 1/2 x 8 1/2, 120 pages, Paper.

The Settlers' War: The Struggle for the Texas Frontier in the 1860s *Hardcover*
SKU:
Hardcover Edition
Caxton Press

Gregory Michno

In Texas in the 1860s, there were no large scale battles between the army and the Indians. The targets of the Comanches, Kiowas, and Apaches usually were the homesteaders on the Texas frontier. In Texas the non-combatants bore the brunt of the warfare, losing far more than the soldiers who were supposedly there to protect them.

The majority of killings were done by Indians on unsuspecting white families. But their story is seldom told—a tale of white victims is not a popular one today. The conflict in Texas had the trappings of a “modern” guerrilla war in which non-combatants suffered because of the inability of most chiefs, soldiers, and politicians to find a diplomatic path to peace. It was hell on the home front. (((More Info))).
6x9, 480 pages, Hardcover, maps, bibliography, index.

Treaties and Treachery: The Northwest Indians' Resistance to Conquest
SKU:
Caxton Press

Kurt R. Nelson

The seven years from 1853 to 1859 are probably more important to the Pacific Northwest than any period of its recorded history. It was in the 1850s that officials began carving the Oregon Territory into the states. It was the period when most Indian tribes signed treaties that were supposed to protect their future. It was also when the natives of the region learned that no matter what the treaties promised, they would have little control over their destiny. So they fought a hopeless battle to preserve their way of life. (((More Info))).
