Author Bio Publisher Introduction When we were kids at school, and were living in a land, where we were taught crafts at school, as part of the educational curriculum, under the term of socially useful productive work, I remember some parents getting rather indignant, because their children were being taught how to work in leather! Being a rather socially backward area, steeped in old tradition and also the traditional working professions fit for different people of different ethnicities and castes, these supposedly highborn families would not allow their children to work on anything, which included touching any material made out of pigskin, calfskin, and hide. These items were considered to be touched only by the lowest of the low, the untouchables. They were the cobblers, who made things in leather, and people, supposedly of the highest caste never wore items made out of these natural products. That is why their shoes were always made out of wood and no way would they use leather belts, purses, bags, ornaments, jackets, or any other things which other people could wear with impunity. Believe it or not, this system worked in the East, for millenniums, but luckily, today we are fortunate because we are not so old-fashioned and also, we do not believe in such outmoded traditions, and that is why we can enjoy one of the most enjoyable of all activities, working with leather and making your own accessories, which otherwise, would set you back hundreds of dollars, if you went and bought them off the shelves. Believe me, if you are under the impression that working with leather is very difficult, it is definitely not so. If you have pushed a needle and thread, through a piece of fabric, you can consider leather to be just another fabric. It may be a bit harder to work on, but if the thread has been asked with ordinary candle wax, and your needle is sharp, there is absolutely no problem in stitching leather, and absolutely no limits to the things you can make out of leather. People have been doing so for millenniums, from jewelry to pouches to bags, to moccasins and shoes, to anything you want to make, which is going to be long-lasting and a thing to treasure. So let us assemble our equipment first. There are plenty of leather making kits, on the Internet, but with their totally absurd prices of up to $225, surely, surely you are not going to waste all your money on buying such a case or kit, unless of course you want to become a traditional leather worker, and intend to sell the things you make? Leather is normally made from the skin of animals. The whole skin is sold, and the portion of the back is stronger and thicker than the one at the edges. That is why, when you begin cutting shapes in leather, you would want to look at the thickness beforehand. The easiest to work with are leathers obtained from goats and sheep. Sheepskin leather – this is of course the cheapest, because it is so easily available, and that is why many people do plenty of embroidery work upon so that it looks more expensive.

This book offers a whistle-stop guide to the history of leathercraft and tanning. The story begins in prehistory when people discovered, perhaps by chance, that skins exposed to smoke or accidentally soaked in autumnal puddles lasted longer. Skins were a valuable resource, used for everything from clothing to shelter, blankets and vessels. The book looks at evidence that shows us how tanning and leather continued to be of prime importance across the globe throughout history, in economic as well as functional terms.The second part of the book brings us up to date, via interviews with modern day leather crafting artisans. These leather crafters generously allowed the author access to their studios and discussed the way they use and adapt traditional methods, techniques and tools for the twenty first century. Photos of their craft, and their working environment offers a unique window into the world of leathercraft.Finally, if you are inspired to try your hand at this fascinating and most ancient of crafts, the book also has a resources section. It includes a valuable list of suppliers of leather, dyes, tools and tanning materials, as well as information about training courses, useful websites and more everything you need to get started.

Confident and robust, Jubilee Hitchhiker is an comprehensive biography of late novelist and poet Richard Brautigan, author of Troutfishing in America and A Confederate General from Big Sur, among many others. When Brautigan took his own life in September of 1984 his close friends and network of artists and writers were devastated though not entirely surprised. To many, Brautigan was shrouded in enigma, erratic and unpredictable in his habits and presentation. But his career was formidable, an inspiration to young writers like Hjortsberg trying to get their start. Brautigans career wove its way through both the Beat-influenced San Francisco Renaissance in the 1950s and the “Flower Power hippie movement of the 1960s; while he never claimed direct artistic involvement with either period, Jubilee Hitchhiker also delves deeply into the spirited times in which he lived. As Hjortsberg guides us through his search to uncover Brautigan as a man the reader is pulled deeply into the writers world. Ultimately this is a work that seeks to connect the Brautigan known to his fans with the man who ended his life so abruptly in 1984 while revealing the close ties between his writing and the actual events of his life. Part history, part biography, and part memoir this etches the portrait of a man destroyed by his genius.

The Abduction Prince Aiden and Princess Ariana were busy making preparations to celebrate the wonder of their first anniversary. The year had flown by, fulfilling their every dream. Aiden had adapted well to the expectations and demands of royalty, along with fatherhood. Angus, two months old, was the pride and joy of the monarchy. The marriage and parenthood brought out the softer side of the blacksmith. His son looked much like him and he held his legacy as often as possible. Princess Camille loved being a first time aunt, spending as much time as she could with Ariana and the baby. The king and Gideon reflected their approval, but usually at a distance. Aiden had relocated his blacksmith trade inside the perimeter of the castle walls, training his two replacements, while using the forge from time to time, to satisfy a more creative nature. His travels had shown him a wide array of artistic applications for his craft and a use that had yet to be satisfied in the kingdom. Aiden designed plates, bowls, mugs and a variety of hand tools, most of which were given away after fulfilling the needs of the royal family. Surprisingly, hed given his cottage to a village family, whose child had told the best story at one of his weekly gatherings. The prince had become a farmer, as well, having recently harvested his first crop of corn. Hed dried kernels for the evenings anniversary festivities in the courtyard. It would be his first presentation of pop corn since his return from the quest. He could hardly wait to see the reaction his new treat would have on the children and the prince planned to hand kernels out to the villagers for the next years planting. Times were good and spirits high, in the realm, where the future looked promising for all. King Darian commissioned the kingdoms first ship. The vessel was built of the finest wood, with help from the Egyptian carpenters. It was a beauty to behold, equal in size to the Argo and the ship would open the island up to trade with countries in the inland sea. Jib supervised the raising of the ship and became the kingdoms first captain, through kings decree. The ship was christened the Phoenix, to honor Aidens quest and his daughters royal marriage. It was the first of six vessels commissioned by the king, with shipbuilding and global trade escalating the rapid growth of the small, inadequate anchorage. Scota sailed back to Egypt aboard the Phoenix on its maiden voyage at her fathers request and having lost any other reason to stay. Everything changed for her with the emotional loss of her husband at the hands of the Nordics. The princess carried the phoenix feather on the return to her homeland, fulfilling Aidens commitment to Queen Nefertiti. King Darian opened her old settlement up for villagers to recolonize and also began construction of a larger seaport capable of handling the increased demands of the realm. The new harbors location was near the mouth of a small river, less than a mile from the castle. While plans for the anniversary celebration were being finalized, Aiden went to the gatehouse to pay the wizard a visit. He hadnt seen Edric since just after his son was born. He took dried corn kernels, from the crop the wizard had helped him plant, to show the magician some of his own magic. Edric hadnt been as preoccupied with his magic mirror since the quest had concluded, spending much of his time grooming his own garden. When there was no answer at the door, the prince walked to the backside of the gatehouse, finding the wizard clipping roses from his prized bushes.

When Danish immigrant soldier Hans Olufsen heads west in 1856 seeking land of his own, he meets and marries an Indian woman named Little Feather. They settle in the Sheyenne River Valley of what is now North Dakota. Together they negotiate many disputes and settlements between the white man and the Indians. Hundreds of whites are killed during the Minnesota Sioux Uprising of 1862. Hans must use artillery skills that he learned in the Danish army to defend Fort Abercrombie. When some three hundred Indians are imprisoned and condemned to death, Hans and Little Feather go to Washington DC with a preacher to plead for President Abraham Lincoln's intervention. Lincoln frees all but thirty-eight of the Indians, of whom one is Little Feather's nephew. Following the Civil War, Hans and Little Feather return home, where Little Feather teaches prairie survival and English to the immigrant women. But after the massacre of General Custer and his troops in 1876, the community turns against Little Feather and her children. This social upheaval threatens to destroy all that Hans and Little Feather have worked so hard to create. It Just Didn't Happen tells the story of their adventurous and loving life together.
