THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE PIONEERS One Man’s Quest to Find the Old West TWAIN BRADEN

In the early 1840s a group of some 300 pioneers set off from St. Joseph, Missouri, headed for Oregon’s Willamette Valley. The group included William Shaw, who was well liked and conscien- tious. It also included Henry Sager, a dreamer and rogue whose carelessness led to tragedy. In the summer of 2006, author Twain Braden retraced the route of these pioneers, driving in ruts possi- bly created by their wagons. Juxtaposing the story of the pioneer’s arduous journey west with his own trip, Braden presents a moving and illu- minating account of how America became what it is today.

Twain Braden has worked as a writer and editor for the past decade. He lives in Charleston, South Carolina.

THE NIGHT OF THE LONG KNIVES

Forty-Eight Hours That Changed the History of the World

PAUL R. MARACIN

How did Adolf Hitler, a mediocre army corporal and failed landscape painter, become the archi- tect of the most calamitous events of the twenti- eth century? Few know that Hitler’s fateful transition from ambitious demagogue to Europe’s most vicious tyrant occurred on an ordinary Saturday—June 30, 1934—in an event known as “The Night of the Long Knives.” This is the story of the events leading up to that awful event, and its most horrifying repercussions.

Paul R. Maracin is a former criminal investigator with the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office. He lives in San Diego, California.
