After his 1728 Virginia-North Carolina boundary expedition, Virginia planter and politician William Byrd II composed two very different accounts of his adventures. The Secret History of the Line was written for private circulation, offering tales of scandalous behavior and political misconduct, peppered with rakish humor and personal satire. The History of the Dividing Line, continually revised by Byrd for decades after the expedition, was intended for the London literary market, though not published in his lifetime. Collating all extant manuscripts, Kevin Joel Berland's landmark scholarly edition of these two histories provides wide-ranging historical and cultural contexts for both, helping to recreate the social and intellectual ethos of Byrd and his time. Byrd enriched his narratives with material appropriated from earlier authors, many of whose works were in his library--the most extensive in the American colonies. Berland identifies for the first time many of Byrd's sources and raises the question: how reliable are histories that build silently upon antecedent texts and present borrowed material as firsthand testimony? In his analysis, Berland demonstrates the need for a new category to assess early modern history writing: the hybrid, accretional narrative.

From finding prime habitats to creating a plan for success, Hunting Whitetails East & West covers everything related to hunting America’s deer. Each fall, the whitetail deer is sought by millions of hunters throughout the United States and Canada. With the expertise from two men who have decades of hunting experience under their belts, you will learn all that it takes to avoid another “…well, there’s always next year” kind of season. Learn what it means to be a whitetail hunter through Fears and Weishuhn’s personal anecdotes and stories. Fears’s focus on eastern whitetail combined with Weishuhn’s knowledge of whitetails west of the Mississippi makes Hunting Whitetails East & West the only guide you’ll ever need. Topics covered include best times to hunt, where to hunt, which firearms to use, how to deal with different weather conditions, and much more. Hunting Whitetails East & West is rich in content and written with both the amateur and the seasoned hunter in mind. Color photographs, maps, and population charts will prove especially useful to beginners, while interviews with the experts and detailed advice will be welcome for anyone. J. Wayne Fears has a graduate degree in outdoor recreation from the University of Georgia and has written more than fourteen books on the subject. Having written more than three thousand magazine articles, Fears is a member of the Explorer’s Club and was elected to the Legends of the Outdoors Hall of Fame. Fears resides in Huntsville, Alabama.
