Alabama Slave NarrativesRegular price $14.95
The view that slavery could best be described by those who had themselves experienced it personally has found expression in several thousand commentaries, autobiographies, narratives, and interviews with those who "endured." Although most of these accounts appeared before the Civil War, more than one-third are the result of the ambitious efforts of the Federal Writers' Project of the Works Progress Administration (WPA) to interview surviving ex-slaves during the 1930s.
Compiled in seventeen states during the years 1936-38, the collection consists of more than two thousand interviews with former slaves, most of them first-person accounts of slave life and the respondents' own reactions to bondage. The interviews afforded aged ex-slaves an unparalleled opportunity to give their personal accounts of life under the "peculiar institution," to describe in their own words what it felt like to be a slave in the United States. –Norman R. Yetman, American Memory, Library of Congress Paperback

Pang: 50th Anniversary First Nonstop Trans-Pacific FlightRegular price $11.95
Pang depicts the historic flight, October 5, 1931, of Clyde Pangborn and Hugh Herndon in the Miss Veedol. Discover how these two daredevil adventurers struggled against extreme adversity in their determination to be first to fly nonstop across the Pacific Ocean. This is a true story of two remarkable men caught between luck, war, and courage. Although these legendary flyers never received the universal acclaim of Charles Lindbergh, the communities of Misawa, Aomori prefecture, Japan and Wenatchee/East Wenatchee, Washington keep their story alive. In fact, the Spirit of Wenatchee project resulted in a resurgence of interest in Pang’s life and accomplishments. The History Channel produced a segment on the story in 2001; KSPS-TV produced a program entitled, “Upside Down Pangborn, First Across the Pacific;” and NHK, Japan’s public television organization produced a program that coincided with the grand opening of the museum in Misawa.
The Japan Science Foundation, the City of Misawa and Aomori prefecture built this museum in dedication to aviation with a replica of the Miss Veedol, constructed by Century Aviation of East Wenatchee, as the facility centerpiece. In conjunction, The Spirit of Wenatchee, an offshoot of the Experimental Aircraft Association chapter at Pangborn Memorial Airport in East Wenatchee, built another replica of Miss Veedol with plans to reenact the non-stop flight across the Pacific.
This revised edition of Pang was published to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the flight and to the salute the courageous pilots. Pang recounts the historic story from Mr. Lodato’s unique perspective. This publication, written by J. D. Lodato, himself a pilot and participant in the Spirit of Wenatchee project, has original illustrations by Charles Reasoner that are complimented with historical photos. One photo includes the crash-landing of Miss Veedol in Wenatchee, Washington after spending 41 hours, 13 minutes in flight. Discover why these two American pilots were grateful to finally depart from Sabishiro Beach, Japan after being detained nearly two months in Tokyo. Today, the memory of the flight is a warm tie between Washington and Japan.
