John Gilley of Baker's Island (Paperback)
A short history of one of many settlers who were neither famous nor unique, but who contributed to the history of the United States. ' This is the life of one of the forgotten millions. It contains no material for distinction, fame, or long remembrance but it does contain the material and present the scene for a normal human development through mingled joy and sorrow, labor and rest, adversity and success, and through the tender loves of childhood, maturity, and age. We cannot but believe that it is just for countless quiet, simple lives like this that God made and upholds this earth.' Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Pierides Press are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
