Paperback booklet has tan cover black print. Former owners name in front. Cover shows soiling, contents clean. Paper yellowing due to age. Published articles by author and Edward Campbell, Mike Schindler, and Robert Mason exposing Aimee as a fraud. " Aimee Semple McPherson (October 9, 1890 – September 27, 1944), also known as Sister Aimee, was a Canadian-American Los Angeles–based evangelist and media celebrity in the 1920s and 1930s. She founded the Foursquare Church. McPherson has been noted as a pioneer in the use of modern media, especially radio, and was the second woman to be granted a broadcast license. She used radio to draw on the growing appeal of popular entertainment in North America and incorporated other forms into her weekly sermons at Angelus Temple.In her time she was the most publicized Christian evangelist, surpassing Billy Sunday and her other predecessors. She conducted public faith-healing demonstrations before large crowds; testimonies conveyed tens of thousands of people healed. McPherson's articulation of the United States as a nation founded and sustained by divine inspiration continues to be echoed by many pastors in churches today. News coverage sensationalized misfortunes with family and church members; particularly inflaming accusations she had fabricated her reported kidnapping, turning it into a national spectacle McPherson's preaching style, extensive charity work and ecumenical contributions were a major influence in revitalization of American Evangelical Christianity in the 20th century."(Wikipedia) Rare work.

A History of the Bahamas, Craton, Michael
7 Craton, Michael A History of the Bahamas
London Collins 1963 First Edition; Second Printing Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Map endpapers. Dust and book in excellent condition. Dust in mylar protective cover. Michael Craton, who died in September 2016, was an English/Canadian historian who made a major contribution to the historiography of the English-speaking Caribbean. He was born in London in 1931, and educated at Christ's Hospital in Horsham, West Sussex, and at University College London, where he graduated with a B.A. in History in 1955. He spent six years after graduation teaching at the Government High School in Nassau, The Bahamas, before emigrating to Canada in 1963, obtaining his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees at McMaster University in Ontario. The earliest arrival of humans in the islands now known as The Bahamas was in the first millennium AD. The first inhabitants of the islands were the Lucayans, an Arawakan-speaking Taino people, who arrived between about 500 and 800 AD from other islands of the Caribbean. Recorded history began on 12 October 1492, when Christopher Columbus landed on the island of Guanahani, which he renamed San Salvador Island on his first voyage to the New World. The earliest permanent European settlement was in 1648 on Eleuthera. During the 18th century slave trade, many Africans were brought to the Bahamas as slaves to work for free. Their descendants now constitute 85% of the Bahamian population. The Bahamas gained independence from the United Kingdom on July 10, 1973. ; Photographs, Maps; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 319 pages

With Ice Run, Hamilton raises the stakes once again, creating another masterpiece of modern crime fiction. It's March in Paradise Michigan, and Alex McKnight is happier than he can remember in a long time-because of a woman, Natalie Reynaud, the Canadian police officer whose partner died in Blood Is The Sky. When Alex and Natalie take a romantic weekend to an old luxury hotel, they find an ominous message in their hotel room-someone has left a picture of Natalie's father and grand-father atop a handwritten note: 'They were here, so was I. I know what happened.' Alex and Natalie must now face a terrible Reynaud family secret, a secret that has driven men to kill for decades. Taut and atmospheric, Steve Hamilton's Ice Run stakes out compelling new ground in crime fiction. ; Alex McKnight Novels; 1.18 x 9.29 x 6.22 Inches; 320 pages; p; Signed by Author
