    i’m reading jemisin’s “the fifth season” now, will put that on the list next, thank you

    "The Boy Captives."

    By: Clinton L. Smith

    Non-fiction. Two young boys get kidnapped by Indians during the years of the settling of the Wild West in America. Indoctrinated into Comanche, and Apache tribes (with one brother sold to Geronimo). The only two brothers known to have endured captivity, and made it back alive.

    If you enjoy your non-fiction with a politically correct slant, this is NOT the book for you. If you want your non-fiction to tell it like it is, with no sugar-coating of reality; this is the book for you.

    What struck me was the sheer lack of any caring for human life. Human life is precious? Oh heck no! Absolutely worthless back then, in that setting. People getting murdered for their horse or just for fun?.... Common thing for the Author. About as common as the Sun rising in the morning.

    finished the Stormlight Archives by Sanderson so naturally reading Mistborn now. I really like how simple his writing style is, but character development is complex

    Articles on the post-COVID real estate market in the Mediterantean, because I have to write an investment strategy into this property in Spain and I'm a bit overdue...
    But before that, I was reading Stefan Zweig's The World of Yesterday; that's a pretty fascinating, if naive, insight in what the people who grew in the Austro-Hungarian Empire felt and thought after the country fell apart and was divided between all of the countries of Central and Southern Europe...

    I read all the Hillerman books about 10 years ago. Great stuff! When I was in New Mexico visiting relatives I even toured some of the locations mentioned in his stories.

    I've always been a WW2 buff but this book has so much first-hand information I was unaware of before. A must read for others with similar interests.

    That would be something. Did you see Spider Rock and Ship Rock? And the four mountains. Finished the series the other week.

    If I recall I only made it to Ship Rock, Teec Nos Pas and some of the other adjacent spots. Just not enough time...

    Folgore 202- That wasn't an article, it was sale listings. I edited it out. Please re-read forum policies and rules. Thanks.
