1 Chamberlain, Samuel Longfellow's Wayside Inn a Camera Impression
One of the series American Landmarks. American antiquity has no more eloquent spokesman than the gracious old Wayside Inn which, for two and a half centuries, has welcomed travelers along the highway. The atmosphere of age and tranquility which delighted Henry Wadsworth Longfellow has only been enhanced by the passing years. The noble old structure, immortalized by the "Tales of a Wayside Inn" stands serene in the countryside, a highly significant study in Americana. This little book aspires to capture, by means of photographs, taken in all seasons of the year, some part of the hospitable charm and the beauty of countryside which the Wayside Inn has reflected since it was built. 66 pages with b&w photos and text. Edges lightly worn. Jacket has a few chips on the front and is lightly worn at the corners and spine ends. Not price-clipped. 7 1/2" by 6 /14" wide.

A Hundred Little Hitlers the Death of a Black Man, the Trial of a White Racist, and the Rise of the Neo-Nazi Movement in America, Langer, Elinor
2 Langer, Elinor A Hundred Little Hitlers the Death of a Black Man, the Trial of a White Racist, and the Rise of the Neo-Nazi Movement in America
On Saturday, November 12, 1988, a group of Portland, Oregon skinheads known as East Side White Pride met for an afternoon of beer and racial banter. That night, they handed out white supremacist newspapers, went to a party, and got thrown out of a friend's apartment. A short while later, three of the skinheads encountered three Ethiopians; a street fight broke out and Kenneth Mieske brutally beat Mulugeta Seraw with a bat. In the early morning hours, Seraw died. Drawing on more than ten years of interviews and research, the author takes the Seraw case as the occasion for a thorough exploration of the Nazi-inspired racialist movement in the U. S. She vividly reconstructs the world of the skinheads, in Portland and nationally: Their origins in the punk scene, basement shrines to Nazi power, moments of glory on Oprah. Compelling, disturbing and important, this book is at once an epic story of American racism and justice, and a taut investigation into powerful social forces that loom ever more dangerous today. Includes notes and index.; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall

4 Nishi, Dennis The Great Depression
073770411x / 9780737704112; This is a very interesting book about The Great Depression. Written primarily for older children and teens, it walks one through a sort of timeline regarding how this began with Wall Street and progressed. It covers what presidents did and didn't do for the people, and documents how people got along, some men sleeping in the streets as they had nowhere else to go, having likely lost their home or apartment. Jobs were scarce, and some people committed petty crimes to end up in jail for a few regular meals and a warm place to sleep. The cover is shiny and pictorial. A few pages were folded over but have been righted. Included is a bibliography and an index. The print is a bit larger than adult books. ; History Firsthand; Photographs; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 234 pages
