This is a book of historical fiction that covers the period from the early days of the English colonies in the New World until the completion of Reconstruction after the end of the so-called Civil War. I created a fictional Andrews family to tell the tale of the "long journeys" traveled by individuals, families, armies and the country during this 200-year period. The causes, the conduct and the outcomes of the American Revolution and The War of Northern Aggression (aka Civil War) are the backdrop for the journeys traveled by the Andrews family and the country.

Numerous parents say the baby carrier is their most essential child outfit thing. Mainly baby carriers let families get out on the town even with an infant.

A little history...
I have produced 3 ebooks.
1) Linux Mint 17 - Full and Painless Migration for Anyone
2) Linux Mint 17 - Abandon Microsoft Today - Super Edition
3) Linux Mint 18 - The Ultimate Cold Turkey Survival Guide
The 1st ebook is no longer available. It was released on my personal website with an asking price of $5, but was freely downloadable. Out of the 1450 people who downloaded my first ebook only about 10 people paid the requested $5 fee. This was very disappointing. I did not publish it with a major publisher because Amazon.com was the only method I knew about and their fees made it impossible to publish a fully illustrated tech book without going broke. Eventually I discovered lulu.com and was able to make a profit.
After discovering lulu.com I published what I thought was the 1st ebook. To my surprise I had uploaded the 2nd ebook which was not supposed to see the light of day. I had shelved that book in favor of the 3rd book. However, several copies sold very fast so I couldn't exactly take it back which is why the 2nd ebook is still for sale.
The 1st ebook is no longer available and is not updated or needed. Buy the 2nd ebook, it has everything the 1st ebook had and tons more.
