This is the first completed volume of the four volume set. It contains ten chapters, starting with the early and developmental Sharps metallic cartridge firearms and ending with chapters on buffalo hunting on the frontier and the legendary Sharps buffalo rifles and the hunters that used them. An extraordinary book for the seasoned gun collector as well as the researcher, historian and astute book collector.
This four volume set will be the definitive books on the Sharps rifles and carbines. The final chapter provides even more context to the story by presenting notes concerning 199 hunters who corresponded with the Sharps company. The amount of information regarding each hunter varies from short extracts from letters they sent the firm, to full biographies that include photographs. From the standpoint of collectors the most important aspect of these remarks is that in most instances they include details of the rifles that were ordered together with their serial numbers. From a broader perspective the accounts are of significance in that they demonstrate the disparate nature of the men involved. Every strata of American society was represented from Civil War veterans to recently arrived immigrants, and youths, eager to make a mark in life. While some were extremely successful, others did not survive the experience.
The Dehydrator Bible. Mackenzie, Nutt, Mercer
Whether grow-your-own, bought locally from a farmer's market, or fresh from a regular supermarket, seasonality still affects the quality, abundance and price of good food. It just makes sense to preserve food quality for those times when it's not as plentiful or not available at all. Dehydrating food with this terrific book is easy and creates tasty food year-round.
Incorporating the age-old practices of food dehydration takes full advantage of what nature offers. All the wonderful recipes are still here and there is a bonus section on everything from pet treats to crafts and homemade gifts. What has changed is that the "Everything You Need to Know About Dehydrating Foods" section has been expanded to include even more comprehensive and complete information about dehydrating foods along with even more tips and techniques.
There are more than 150 recipes for dehydrating everything from herbs and seasonings to fruits, vegetables, meats and fish, plus more than 250 delicious recipes that actually use the dehydrated foods as ingredients. Putting home-preserved food to work for home, RV, boat or campsite has never been easier.
The easy-to-follow drying instructions along with time guidelines make even a novice cook feel like a seasoned professional.
Planting a few extra rows of tomatoes or beans, picking many strawberries at their peak or buying that big basket of freshly harvested carrots can really pay off later. Loading up the dehydrator will provide personally dried foods the whole year through.

Building Hitler,s Missiles. Bode, Kaiser.
The Aggregat 4 (A4) was the German Wehrmacht's first long-range missile, regarded as "suitable for war use" since 1940. Wernher von Braun, his team of design engineers and 1,300 scientists had been working towards a rocket capable of bearing a 750-kilogram explosive charge over a minimum distance of 200 to 300 kilometres, hitting the enemy target with the greatest possible accuracy. The primary purpose of the Aggregat 4 was to terrorise the British, reducing London to rubble through constant bombardment. On 3 October 1942 the 14-tonne rocket lifted off effortlessly from the Peenemunde launch pad, and the Wehrmacht were certain they had a new weapon for which there were no defences at the time- a long-range rocket which would change the shape of aerial warfare. This book provides a unique account of the development and combat history of Hitler's devastating missiles, detailing a wealth of previously unseen material, making this book a must for World War II historians and enthusiasts of strategic analysis alike.
A Brief History of Cryptology. Boone
Most of us experience the interactions of cryptography, communications, and computers as we go about our daily activities. While on our laptops, we conduct secure financial transactions and communicate about business and personal matters. But not long ago, only people with special security clearances working at secured communications centres had such access. This book looks at how this dramatic transition came about.
J. V. Boone presents a historical overview of technological developments in cryptology and the closely associated fields of communications and computers. Having directed research at the National Security Agency (NSA) for years, he is well suited to tell the story. Boone identifies milestone accomplishments and activities in the three fields to provide an introduction to the talented people who have led developments and applications. He includes illustrations to give a feel for the equipment and systems, but his book's focus is on the essential ingredient for success in cryptology: brainpower. Everyone from high school students to policy developers in government and industry will be drawn to this concise history of the joint progress of cryptology, communications, and computers. Although he writes primarily from a military intelligence and command/control viewpoint, there are no involved explanations about how individual pieces of equipment function and no elaborate mathematical presentations. For those whose curiosity he has stimulated, he provides additional references.

Cracking the Luftwaffe Codes. The Secrets of Bletchley Park. Watkins
An intriguing page-turning and personal account of that most secretive of wartime institutions, Bletchley Park, and of the often eccentric people who helped to win the war’ – Beryl Bainbridge
Bletchley Park, or 'Station X', was home to the most famous code breakers of the Second World War. The 19th-century mansion was the key centre for cracking German, Italian and Japanese codes, providing the allies with vital information. After the war, many intercepts, traffic-slips and paperwork were burned (allegedly at Churchill's behest). The truth about Bletchley was not revealed until F. Winterbotham's The Ultra Secret was published in 1974.
However, nothing until now has been written on the German Air Section. In Cracking the Luftwaffe Codes, former WAAF (Women's Auxiliary Air Force) Gwen Watkins brings to life the reality of this crucial division.
In a highly informative, lyrical account, she details her eventful interview, eventual appointment at the 'the biggest lunatic asylum in Britain', methods for cracking codes, the day-to-day routine and decommissioning of her section.
The Accurate Rifle...and Rifleman. Boddington.
It was Townsend Whelen who said, "Only accurate rifles are interesting." This must be one of the great truisms of the rifle-shooting world. While there certainly are a great many experienced riflemen in the USA today, few can match Boddington's experience with the variety of calibers, actions, makes, and bullets that he has shot over the last three-plus decades. That experience is why this book is such an important contribution to the literature of the hunting/shooting world.
Starting with the barrel, Boddington steps us through every single element that makes an accurate (or not so accurate) rifle. These elements include the different actions; stocks, bedding, and vibrations; good-quality triggers and how to control them; the variables in cartridge design; factory ammo; handloading for serious accuracy (by Paul Massaro); the accuracy of the various bullet designs; breaking-in a rifle; how to clean a rifle; open sights; and scopes and mounts. Boddington delves into good shooting positions; rests; how to shoot long range, and a host of other serious topics that will improve your shooting with a rifle. Ultimately, he discusses the single biggest factor of all as far as accuracy is concerned-the human element.
Nobody will shoot all brands of rifles, all different calibers, and all types of bullets, and nobody will experience all the different circumstances that one can encounter in the field or on the bench. With his experience, Boddington comes close. There are darn few people on this earth who have gathered as much experience with sporting rifles for all these elements as he has. Boddington must rank as one of the most knowledgeable authors who currently write on the subject.

Big Game Hunter: A Biography of Frederick Courtney Selous. Etherington.
This book tells the story of an adventurer, hunter and naturalist in late nineteenth-century Africa, who would inspire novelists such as Rider Haggard and Wilbur Smith. The book describes Selous' extraordinary adventures, from elephant-hunting, and diamond-prospecting, to an early expedition to found Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) in the European scramble for Africa. The book also examines Selous' relationships with other influential people of the time, including Robert Baden-Powell, Frederick Russell Burnham, Cecil Rhodes, King Lobengula of the Ndebele, and American President Teddy Roosevelt.
In Big Game Hunter Norman Etherington paints a skillful portrait of a complex man who started as an elephant hunter but who eventually founded some of the first game reserves in Africa and was acclaimed by both the National History Museum and the Royal Geographical Society for his collections and discoveries. Selous, who was killed by a German sniper bullet in Tanganyika in the First World War, was one of the world's great adventurers.
Freund & Bro. Pioneer Gunmakers to the West. Ballentine
Immigrants from Germany, the Freund brothers plied their trade across the Great American West in the final decades of the nineteenth century, following the railroad tracks ever westward. Along the way they set up shop in such hell-roaring end-of-track camps as Julesburg, Bear River City, and Corinne, before establishing permanent stores in Denver and Cheyenne.
This is the story of the brothers' old-world gunsmithing and engraving, their modifications to Sharps and other game rifles using the patented "Freund's Improved" action, the famed Freund "More Light" sights, and their numerous patents for improvements to firearms and hard-rock mining tools. It is the story of American Manifest Destiny-- and of the Pioneer Gunmakers to the West.
Dozens of Freund-made and -modified rifles are shown, many in color.

The White Sniper: Simo Hayha. Saarelainen.
Simo Hayha (1905-2002) is the most famous sniper in the world. During the Winter War fought between Russia and Finland in 1939 - 1940 he had 542 confirmed kills with iron sights, a record that still stands today. He has been a role model for snipers all over the world and paved the way for them by demonstrating their significance on the battlefield. Simo Hayha was a man of action who spoke very little, but he was hugely respected by his men and his superiors and given many difficult missions, including taking out specific targets. Able to move silently and swiftly through the landscape, melting into the snowbound surroundings in his white camouflage fatigues, his aim was deadly and his quarry rarely escaped. The Russians learned of his reputation as a marksman and tried several times to kill him by indirect fire. He was promoted from corporal to second lieutenant and he was awarded the Cross of Kollaa. For sniping Simo Hayha only ever used his own m/28-30 rifle. Eventually his luck ran out and Simo received a serious head wound on March 6, 1940, though he subsequently recovered. After the war Simo Hayha lead a quiet, unassuming life in farming and forestry.His roots were deep in the Finnish soil and he loved life in rural Finland. A true patriot, he epitomized the traits of a professional soldier, performing his duty and setting an example of bravery that personified the Finnish spirit when confronted by the Russian onslaught. The White Sniper fully explores Simo Hayha's life, his exploits in the Winter War, the secrets behind his success including character and technique, and also includes a detailed look at his rifle itsel
Sasha Siemel was a figure of monumental importance on the American hunting-world stage of the 1930s,'40s,'50s, and '60s. He was unique not only as a hunter but also as a man. He is the only known white man to have fought the fierce jungle jaguars of Brazil with a spear, and as a man, he made a stand for decency in everything he did. This was a man who believed in the ideals of freedom, adventure, honor, family, home, and courage-ideals he upheld throughout his life.
He was so famous in his day that he appeared in advertisements, cartoons, Hollywood films, and even in a full-feature article in The New York Times. That NYT article included multiple photos of his bag of many jaguars and other game! (Can you imagine the NYT today saying anything positive about shooting a coyote?) He also wrote a very long piece for National Geographic in 1954. Again, can you imagine NG allowing a hunter today to write of his exploits? His fight against Assassino, the name given to the much-feared man-eating jaguar that killed his mentor, was published in Life and Reader's Digest in the mid-1950s. From 1930 to 1952, Sasha was featured in Time magazine seven times. He published his autobiography, Tigrero! in 1953.
Alexander "Sasha" Siemel hailed from Latvia, which he left when he was sixteen to seek an adventurous life abroad. He first landed in Chicago, where he learned English, and then he immigrated to Argentina to join his brother. Once in South America he found a job as a mechanic, but he was soon drawn to the vast wilderness of the Mato Grosso. His dream was to become a jaguar hunter in the endless grasslands and marshes of the Pantanal, where big game flourished and where courteous Brazilian ranchers pursued rugged lives.
He sought out and eventually found Joaquim Guató, a native reported to be an expert tigrero, or jaguar hunter. Guató fought jaguars armed only with a spear, and he passed on his knowledge to Sasha before he himself was killed by the man-eating Assassino. Sasha proved a highly capable apprentice, first hunting jaguars with a rifle and later with a spear. Over time he became the most successful hunter of jaguars in the history of South America, and it is reported that in his long career as a jaguar hunter, Sasha Siemel engaged in thirty-one victorious spear fights against these ferocious beasts.
In the early 1930s, Sasha realized that he wanted more than just a solitary existence, and he felt the need to tell others about the Mato Grosso and his experiences there. So, when he was in his early forties, he began touring the USA extensively. He held lectures and presentations, and at one of those talks he met and eventually married Edith Bray, an American from Philadelphia. He continued to lead expeditions and hunters into the "green hell" of South America. Among these were Theodore Roosevelt Jr., Roosevelt's nephew Kermit, Julian Duguid, Mamerto Urriolagoitia (President of Bolivia), dignitaries, and business titans. Sasha Siemel continued his life of hunting, leading expeditions, and giving lectures well into the 1960s . . . long after most people would have retired. (He died in 1970 at the age of eighty.)
The original book was short on photos that highlighted Sasha Siemel's exciting jaguar adventures and his entrepreneurial activities. This revised, expanded edition was made possible through the generosity of the Siemel children in loaning their family archive to Safari Press; this archive allowed Safari Press to include in this new edition considerable new material as well as a large selection of new photos and period illustrations. (There was so much material that we had to leave a lot lying on the cutting floor.)
It is often said that Mother Nature did not create the wildlife of South America with the big-game hunter in mind, but there is one exception to this adage-and that is the jaguar. In making the jaguar, Mother Nature made up in spades for what the continent lacks in big game (when compared to Africa). No other large cat on earth is as difficult to hunt as the jaguar, and there is likely not another hunt as dangerous or as exciting as hunting this great feline with a spear. Sasha Siemel hunted the mighty jaguar for nearly fifty years. Tigrero! tells the tale of his extraordinary hunting career.
Carvings from the Veldt. Part 2. George
Exceptional interest in Part One of ‘Carvings from the Veldt’ has uncovered many additional carved weapons and much encouragement to embark upon a second ‘follow-on’ edition. The new book features 306 new firearms: rifles, carbines and handguns used by both sides, the Boers as well as British and Colonial soldiers.

The service histories of Boers and soldiers are researched along with many previously unpublished original photos of groups of Boers and soldiers. Amongst the Boer weapons are four carved rifles that were used by famous Boer Generals. Also featured are 70 weapons that were used or souvenired by British and Colonial officers and troops (British, Canadians, Australians, South Africans and New Zealanders).

Hammer Guns: In Theory and Practice. Hadoke.
Collecting, maintaining, and shooting classic firearms.
Vintage gun expert Diggory Hadoke (author of Vintage Guns for the Modern Shot and The British Boxlock Gun & Rifle) has now produced a major work on the subject for which he is best known: the hammer gun. With a fascinating mixture of historical analysis, practical application, and personal reflection, he makes a robust case for the Victorian hammer gun as the finest sporting gun available today, just as it was a century ago.
The reader will discover all that is worth knowing about the subject: how the guns were devised, crafted, and used, how they were perfected, and how they work. Modern applications are given equal weight to historical ones, and subjects such as the selection of suitable ammunition, stripping, refurbishing, and customizing will prove invaluable to anyone contemplating taking a hammer gun into the field and using it as they would a modern gun.
This is the fullest and most practical account of the development of the breech-loading centre-fire hammer gun and its many variations yet written, with a guide for owners and collectors that will prove invaluable when buying and maintaining their guns.
Hunting Wild Sheep and Goats around the World. Myers.
Fifty years ago, Latham Myers learned to hunt with his grandpa. Then it was for rabbits and squirrels; today he scales the highest peaks in the world in the toughest of big-game hunts. It was his grandpa who taught him how and why we hunt, and it was this same mentor who instilled in him a love of hunting that grew into one of his greatest passions, hunting wild sheep and goats on the pinnacles of the world.
In 1995, Latham started his mountain-hunting journey with an add-on hunt for the challenging North American mountain goat. Since then, he has hunted on five continents and in eleven countries, including six trips to Russia, four to Canada, and two to Spain. Along that journey he accomplished a Triple Slam: a Grand Slam of North American sheep (Dall, Stone, Rocky Mountain bighorn, desert bighorn), an Ovis World Slam (twelve species of wild sheep), and a Capra World Slam (twelve species wild goats). During that process, he maintained a journal and took thousands of photographs of his hunts around the globe. Hunting Wild Sheep and Goats around the World is the culmination of those efforts.
Come travel with Latham as he hunts wild sheep in the magnificent Rocky Mountains, the icy Northwest Territories, and the desiccated Chihuahuan Desert. Feel your heart pound as he stalks ibex in the heart of Central Asia. Watch the sun break over the rugged ridgeline of the Dzhugdzhur Mountains in Siberia's Far East and set sublimely on the Southern Alps of New Zealand. Struggle with him up the rugged, picturesque Caucasus Mountains-from the Black Sea to the Caspian Sea-while hunting wild tur, and tremble with him from exertion as he climbs after blue sheep in the shadows of the Himalayan Mountains. Experience with him the incredible highs of hunting ibex in the Taurus Mountains of Turkey and the bitter lows of failing on a Marco Polo sheep hunt in the mighty Pamir Mountains. Follow along as he pursues ibex and chamois in the Gredos, Cantabrian, Pyrenean, and Beceite Mountains, and be amazed at the grandeur of the vast Verkhoyansk Mountains as he hunts snow sheep near the Arctic Circle.
So, grab your rifle and come along with Latham as he finds adventure in Hunting Wild Sheep and Goats around the World.
