I write and publish books on untold history. History that is not accurately presented is also one of my pet concerns. Since I suport the idea a picture is worth a 1000 words, I use a lot of pictures. That is the reason for the picture of the Dolman on the left.
I am starting a new feature on this sight. I call take a trip with the Ranger. As you may know I was a District Ranger with the USFS for about 20 years of my 32 years of service. I took a lot of pictures. Some very interisting.
I am inviting you my reader to go and see these items for your self.
I have named this dolman as The Sawbill Landing Dolman because it is where you leave your car before the day long canue trip into the Superior National to see it. You will notice my hat in the picture so you will know it's mine.
I will be posting a picture on one 30 miles north of New York City for those of you who are not so adventures. This is explained in my first book. Ancient Mines of Kitchi-Gummi.
A short explination of my books are listed below.
The Sawmill River Valley War documents Westchester County New York Militia during the Revolutionary War. It follows eleven men in this tight nit group of patriots during the eight years of the war. These are the same men Washington Irving also wrote about.
Riding the Wild Orb, in a much different area, delves into historic extreams of the earth's weather. It challenges accepted historic dogma about about the Ice-Ages and proposes Pole Shift as a more logical explination of the extreams of the Ice-Ages. It provides questions that many do not ask because they do not want to consider the answers.
Ancient Mines of Kitchi-Gummi has been in publication for 14 years. The 4000 paper copies are all sold out, but the E-book is still available. It addresses the questions around the ancient copper culture that mines millions of pounds of copper 4000+ years ago on Lake Superior. for more information click on the actual book pages.
Three of our books are now also available as E-Books are on Amazon. They are; The Sawmill River Valley War, Ancient Mines of Kitchi-Gummi, and Riding the Wild Orb. .
Our curent book Project called, "Jewel Bridge" is a early history of this family in Saratoga, New York. We expect to publish this summer (2014). It is part 2 of a trilogy about this family. The first book "The Sawmill River Valley War" is available at this site. It covers the involvement of one Jewel family during the Revolutionary War. The focus is on the Westchester County Militia, the same soldiers Washington Irving wrote about in "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" and "Wolfert's Roost".
We will be adding additional items of Jewell Genealogy as they become available.
