Free ebooks on upstate history and drama at Lulu

I have made available several ebooks for free download at my site on Lulu;

Tales of the Rock City is a series of articles on Little Falls NY in 1912 written by the famed "Red Nurse" Helen Schloss for the socialist newspaper, the New York Call. This publication was made possible by LF native Bill Simpson who found the articles, converted them to PDF and generously shared them with the public. Paperback copies of the booklet can be purchased at the Little Falls Historical Society (or at cost on this site)

The 1854 History of Herkimer County by Nathaniel Benton is a rare and fragile book  available on special request in the archives of the Little Falls and Herkimer County historical societies. This abridged edition contains the chronological historical chapters but omits the family histories. Those interested in the family studies can find the complete book online at the Three Rivers website, an invaluable trove of many primary sources related to upstate history. (Abridged version is available at cost on this site)

I have also included free ebooks of three plays I wrote and produced with very little success long ago. All are attempts to re-tell ancient Greek myths in an upstate setting. They are available for the use of any theater group under a Creative Commons license.

Upstate Perseus

South Bronx Medea

America Love It or Leave It (a Viet Nam era Antigone)
