This first volume of Shelby Foote's classic narrative of the Civil War opens with Jefferson Davis’s farewell to the United Senate and ends on the bloody battlefields of Antietam and Perryville, as the full, horrible scope of America’s great war becomes clear. Exhaustively researched and masterfully written, Foote’s epic account of the Civil War unfolds like a classic novel. Includes maps throughout. "Here, for a certainty, is one of the great historical narratives…a unique and brilliant achievement, one that must be firmly placed in the ranks of the masters."—Van Allen Bradley, Chicago Daily News "A stunning book full of color, life, character and a new atmosphere of the Civil War, and at the same time a narrative of unflagging power. Eloquent proof that an historian should be a writer above all else." —Burke Davis "To read this great narrative is to love the nation—to love it through the living knowledge of its mortal division. Whitman, who ultimately knew and loved the bravery and frailty of the soldiers, observed that the real Civil War would never be written and perhaps should not be. For me, Shelby Foote has written it.... This work was done to last forever." —James M. Cox, Southern Review

Archaeology, politics, and war collide in 3 steamy thrillers. Evidence Series Box Set Volume 1 includes two full-length (300 page) novels and one short (150-page) novel. Concrete Evidence She wants revenge. He wants her. Erica Kesling is trying to track down stolen artifacts so she can clear her name. Lee Scott is searching for the stateside conspirator in an international artifact smuggling ring. She’s hiding her past, while he hides his present. He pretends to be a clueless intern when really he's a genius hacker who is slowly uncovering all of her secrets, and with each reveal he finds himself falling harder for his prime suspect. Body of Evidence And she thought facing a firing squad was bad… When archaeologist Mara Garrett traveled to North Korea to retrieve the remains of GIs lost in combat, she never imagined she’d be arrested, convicted of spying, and sentenced to death. Her only hope is Curt Dominick, a powerful and ambitious US attorney who has his own reasons for wanting Mara back on US soil. What starts off as a rescue mission morphs into a race across the Pacific. Someone is after Mara, and they’ll risk everything to stop her from reaching Washington, DC. Curt and Mara have little reason to trust each other and every reason to resist the heat that flares between them. Still, desire clashes with loyalty when they uncover a conspiracy that reaches the highest levels of government. Withholding Evidence Some secrets are worth dying for… Military historian Trina Sorensen has a nearly impossible task before her: get recalcitrant but tempting former Navy SEAL Keith Hatcher to reveal what happened during a top secret Somalia op five years ago. Recent history isn’t usually her forte, but the navy wants an historian’s perspective and has given her the high security clearance to get the job done. Keith isn't just refusing to tell Trina about the op, he's protecting a national secret that could destroy the lives of those he cares about the most. But not wanting to talk about a covert mission doesn’t mean he isn’t interested in spending time with the sexy historian, and the first time they kiss it’s explosive. When the past comes pounding on Keith’s door, he’ll do anything to keep Trina safe… Anything, that is, except tell her the secret that could get them both killed.

Four full-length novels! Over 350,000 words! Two thousand one hundred and sixty-three print pages! * The Kramski Case * The Girl From Kandahar * The Vengeance of San Gennaro * The Eastern Ukraine Question "This is what James Ward is really good at. He only needs a few words to evoke specific moods and characterizations, and you barely even notice it. Instead you are pulled along by the plot and the excitement (you know, the spy stuff), and when you finish a chapter you think, 'Wow, that's pretty rich'." - Miranda on Amazon "If you haven’t read any of this author’s books, you’re missing out on a collection that I claim to be one of my favorites in a rather expansive personal library. I can say without reservation that if you purchase these works, you may just find yourself with the same observation." - EA Gray, Amazon top 100 reviewer "If you’re looking for a new political thriller to sink your teeth into, I would highly suggest checking out James Ward’s many novels." - Owen Robinson on Amazon "Think through the suspense espionage thrillers that remain like phantoms in the brain and likely they will have been conceived by a British Isles author ... We now add another master of the medium in James Ward." - Grady Harp, Amazon top 100 reviewer “The writing is done so well, and Ward's use of language and dialect is so sharp and convincing, without being heavy-handed. His characters were meticulously crafted, and they seemed natural and responded to situations realistically, one of the greatest challenges in writing intense dialogue and interactions.” – John on Goodreads “James Ward is one of those authors who will never run out of ideas.” – Quality Reads UK Book Club Find out more at www.talesofmi7.com.

Now you can get the first three books of the 'Her ~ Romantic Suspense' series in one box set. Features two full-length novels and one 80-page novella. Her Sanctuary: Running for her life, ex-FBI agent Elizabeth Ward escapes to Montana with a new identity. She craves peace and solitude, but instead finds handsome rancher, Nat Sullivan. Nat is trying to hold his ailing family together, while struggling to keep the ranch from bankruptcy. The last thing the cowboy needs is a beautiful stranger reminding him there is more to life than work. But Elizabeth isn't what she seems. And when a murderer and rapist track her down to the remote ranch, they all find out about the power of revenge. Revenge or Redemption. Which would you choose? Her Last Chance: Marsh & Josie first appear in HER SANCTUARY. This is their story. Eighteen years ago the Blade Hunter found his first victim on the streets of New York City. As a child Josephine Maxwell was attacked and left for dead. She learned the hard way that life is a constant struggle for survival. She can’t waste time pining over a man she can’t have. Now the killer has returned, and the only person who can save her is the FBI agent she deceived and betrayed six months ago. Now he’s back to finish the job. Special Agent-in-Charge Marshall Hayes has made it his life’s work to fight on the side of law and order, even though it cost him the only woman he ever loved. The return of a serial killer gives him the excuse he needs to force his way back into her life. But in order to catch the killer and safeguard Josie's life, he has to break all the rules and risk losing his heart again. Her Risk To Take (80-page novella): If only ER doc Sarah Sullivan could get the ornery cowboy she’s loved since she was a girl to cooperate, she could move on with her life, and maybe even think about starting a family. But he’s pulling away, and she doesn’t know why. What she does know is that she can’t imagine life without him. Ex-con Cal Landon lives in fear of the day his ugly past catches up with him and takes away the best thing he’s ever known—Sarah Sullivan. Cal would die to protect her, but she deserves better than a world-weary ranch hand. Even though it’s way past time for him to leave her family’s Montana spread, he can’t bring himself to let go. When Sarah proposes at Christmastime, Cal has no choice but to walk away. Then a hostage crisis hurls Sarah into a life-and-death situation, and the love that made Cal leave sends him racing back to her side, straight into danger. He will get her out alive—or die trying.

North Carolinians In The Era Of The Civil War And Reconstruction

Although North Carolina was a "home front" state rather than a battlefield state for most of the Civil War, it was heavily involved in the Confederate war effort and experienced many conflicts as a result. North Carolinians were divided over the issue of secession, and changes in race and gender relations brought new controversy. Blacks fought for freedom, women sought greater independence, and their aspirations for change stimulated fierce resistance from more privileged groups. Republicans and Democrats fought over power during Reconstruction and for decades thereafter disagreed over the meaning of the war and Reconstruction. With contributions by well-known historians as well as talented younger scholars, this volume offers new insights into all the key issues of the Civil War era that played out in pronounced ways in the Tar Heel State. In nine essays composed specifically for this volume, contributors address themes such as ambivalent whites, freed blacks, the political establishment, racial hopes and fears, postwar ideology, and North Carolina women. These issues of the Civil War and Reconstruction eras were so powerful that they continue to agitate North Carolinians today.
