University of Nebraska Press, Lincoln and London, 2001, ISBN:0803213107 
BOURQUE, Bruce J. Twelve Thousand Years : American Indians in Maine. With contributions by Steven L. Cox and Ruth H. Whitehead. Lincoln and London : University of Nebraska Press, (2001). Pp [i]-xviii,(2),[1]-368,(4). Illustrated. Maps. Index. Large 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. “Nearly twelve thousand years ago Native Americans began moving through and eventually settling along the rocky coast, rivers, lakes, valleys, and mountains of a region that would later become known as Maine. "Twelve Thousand Years" is the story of the many generations of Native peoples who for twelve millennia have called this region their home. The first to arrive were the Paleo-Indian peoples, mobile big-game hunters known for their striking stone tools. They were followed by maritime hunters, who left behind ritual sites that attracted some of America's earliest archaeologists. A very different group of immigrants replaced them, and the last three millennia of prehistorywitnessed a revival of maritime cultures that engaged in exchange with far away communities. Beginning in the sixteenth century, Native peoples in northern New England became tangled in the far-reaching affairs of European explorers and colonists. "Twelve Thousand Years" reveals how Penobscots, Abenakis, Passamaquoddies, Maliseets, Micmacs, and other Native communities both strategically accommodated and overtly resisted European and American encroachments. Since that time, Native communities in Maine have endured, adapted when necessary, and experienced a political and cultural revitalizationin recent decades. Included in this work is a valuable summary of the trad itional material culture of Maine's Native peoples - what they ate, wore, fought with, and hunted with, and their methods of transportation.” (from the dj). Contents: Introduction: The Prehistoric Past. 1. The Paleo-Indian Period. 2. The Archaic Period. 3. The Ceramic Period. 4. An Introduction to the Historic Past. 5. Early European and Native Contacts. 6. The Second Halfof the Seventeenth Century. 7. The War Years. 8. The Era of the Mission. E pilogue: Land, Politics, and Survival to the Present.

5 BUFF, Joe Crush Depth.

BUFF, Joe. Crush Depth. (New York) : William Morrow, (2002). First Printing. Pp [i]-xiv,[1]-449,(1). 8vo, blue cloth spine, navy paper covered boards,silver lettering to spine. A novel about nuclear submarines. “The cataclys m that began with coordinated reactionary coups in South Africa and Germanycaught America completely unprepared. Overnight, new enemies have emerged and joined forces to attack U.S. and European shipping lanes, setting off aglobal conflagration raging in deadly earnest. And this time the devastati ng weapons of choice used by the Berlin-Boer Axis will be tactical nuclear weapons. The enemy boat Voortrekker prowls beneath the ocean's surface, carrying more onboard firepower than that of many of the world's nations. A deep diving state-of-the-art German ceramic-hulled submarine, Voortrekker hasthe ability to evade all Allied sensors and can fire torpedoes from any an gle, further masking its location. There is only one weapon in America's arsenal that can match the silent killer: the crippled sub USS Challenger, presently in dry dock in Connecticut. It will take three weeks to get the U.S. ceramic-hulled sub back into fighting shape and by then it will be too late. The Axis powers have already proven they can get past America's frontline seapower defenses. And the Voortrekker is moving into position for the ultimate strike. Brash, brilliant, and battle-tested, Captain Jeffrey Fulleris the driven naval officer who must oversee the miracle that will put Cha llenger back into action in forty-eight hours. Then Fuller himself will have to do the impossible, piloting his damaged sub toward a life-and-death confrontation with the Axis leviathan. Fuller has already faced the Voortrekker's ruthless, ingenious commander head-to-head — and unlike so many others, he survived. But this time the fight will take place in waters far too deep for a normal sub to withstand — in the terrifying blackness at the ultimate submarine's crush depth. And this time the prize will be America.” - from the dj. Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 20.00
