Mules And Men

by Zora Neale Hurston, Mules And Men Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Mules And Men books, Mules and Men is a treasury of black America's folklore as collected by a famous storyteller and anthropologist who grew up hearing the songs and sermons, sayings and tall tales that have formed an oral history of the South since the time of slavery. Returning to her hometown of Eatonville, Florida, to gather material, Zora Neale Hurston recalls "a hilarious night with a pinch of everything social mixed with the storytelling." Set intimately within the social context of black life, the stories, "big old lies," songs, Vodou customs, and superstitions recorded in these pages capture the imagination and bring back to life the humor and wisdom that is the unique heritage of African Americans.

Barracoon

by Zora Neale Hurston, Barracoon Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Barracoon books, Die Publikationssensation: Die bisher unveröffentlichte Lebensgeschichte des letzten amerikanischen Sklaven „Barracoon“ ist der einmalige Zeitzeugenbericht des letzten Überlebenden des Sklavenhandels, der 2018 in den USA erstveröffentlicht wurde und dort wegen seiner berührenden, ungeschminkten Erzählung und authentischen Sprache Aufsehen erregte und zum Bestseller wurde. „Barracoon“ erzählt die wahre Geschichte von Oluale Kossola, auch Cudjo Lewis genannt, der 1860 auf dem letzten Sklavenschiff nach Nordamerika verschleppt wurde. Die große afroamerikanische Autorin Zora Neale Hurston befragte 1927 den damals 86-Jährigen über sein Leben: seine Jugend im heutigen Benin, die Gefangennahme und Unterbringung in den sogenannten „Barracoons“, den Baracken, in die zu verkaufende Sklaven eingesperrt wurden, über seine Zeit als Sklave in Alabama, seine Freilassung und seine anschließende Suche nach den eigenen Wurzeln und einer Identität in den rassistisch geprägten USA.

Mules Men And Mountains

by Charles Hays, Mules Men And Mountains Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Mules Men And Mountains books, This book is a work of historical military fiction that describes the impact of ski troopers and their Mules on accelerating the end of World War II in Italy. That Great War was winding down in Europe but, in the Apennine Mountains of Italy, large quantities of Italian and Nazi soldiers were still well-entrenched. They were some of the best troops that either Benito Mussolini or Adolf Hitler could place in action against any Yankee advance. Each of them were very capable of doing considerable harm to a typical infantry division which had not been trained to fight under these harsh environmental conditions of thick snow banks, extremely low temperatures, severe freezing winds and rigorous ecological demands. This is to say that a typical infantry division and their artillery would have been seriously stalled by the deep snow drifts. As one advisor said, For the entrenched enemies, it would have been like shooting ducks in a pond. Fortunately, the US Army listened to the sage advice of their various consultants. The US Army formed their own Ski Trooper outfit to rid the mountain tops from their unwanted occupants, the soldiers of Italy and Germany. That outfit was named the Tenth Mountain Division but, as time passed on, the newsreels began to call them by a better name, they were known as Ruffners Raiders. Brigadier General David L. Ruffner was the Commanding General of the Tenth Mountain Division Artillery. Although The Tenth Division entered the combat zones rather late in the day, they still had one of the highest casualty rates for that War of all Wars. For the Mules that were involved, their loss of life was 94% since they provided such an easy target for the Snipers to kill.
