Boone’s story would have ended badly in a 1777 battle with Shawnee... Read more »

After his third daughter, Jessica, graduated from college, Hubert Kriegel realized something. He could stay in the daily grind, and 10 years from now he would still be poor. Or he could do what he always wanted to do: travel on a sidecar, and in 10 years he would be poor. What a decision! Soon Hubert... Read more »

El Tanque: A Russian Conquest of Latin America

In this region of South America, many of these high-altitude alkaline or saline lakes host flocks of Andean Flamingos.
