    Sailing Alone Around the World.

    First person to do this, 1896! Written by a sea captain who restored a small boat and sailed around the world. This was during a time when some still thought the world was flat. A spectacular portrait of times in the late 1800s.

    Very well researched telling of this outrageous So Cal bank robbery/shootout that preceded and probably exceeded the North Hollywood shootout. I remember following this when it happened only a few miles away, but wasn't privy to the motivation and planning. First major use of "assault-type" rifles that I recall in a bank robbery. Since it occured in a rural somewhat remote area it never that much attention at the time.

    Unintended Consequences by John Ross. Published in 1996 and the writer wrote it to warn of coming times and to prevent what the book is about. Very powerful and The ATF even attempted to prevent the book from being published. In addition it was banned in Canada from what I found doing research.
    John Ross was from St Louis.

    Yes, a truly excellent novel. I still have my early edition of it. It literally changed policy. But of course there will never be open admission of that fact. After the book was published, all of a sudden there were no more heavily armed Federal raids on compounds full of Americans who simply wanted to be left alone. (Apparently that's a crime, or at least it was.) Enough years have gone by that we can now see that was the case.

    Like Upton Sinclair's book "The Jungle," "Unintended Consequences" is one of the most influential books in American history. Having literally changed policy and how things are done in America. Though nowadays the powers that be are content to never mention it, and are happy that it has mainly fallen into obscurity.

    Love that manual. Have both the standard length and compact cover version. The latter I bought at Borders as they were having a massive going out of business sale.
