George Morgan was appointed the Indian agent in the Middle Department and ordered him westward on a mission of peace. The Indian nations had the military might to sway the outcome of the American Revolution, and the British and the Americans competed to win the favor of influential Indian leaders.

For his part, to "keep Congress informed" George Morgan established an elaborate intelligence network spread from Canada in the north, to the Gulf Coast in the south, and from the Mississippi River to the Atlantic seaboard. His friends and allies, both Indian and white, apprised him of the latest frontier developments. In 1976, Susannah Morgan, whose late husband was the Great-Great Grandson of Colonel Morgan, suggested to Schaaf that he take a look at some documents in her trunk. He discovered the 73 missing pages of Colonel George Morgan's 200- year-old journal.

These documents as well as letters exchanged between Morgan and George Washington, John Hancock, and other notables of the period. These tell the full story of the relationship between the American rebels and the Native Americans. Morgans journal, which chronicles his career as an Indian agent, shows how he risked his life and earned respect from powerful Indian Nations.

  • Size 7" x 9" Soft Cover; 307 pages

Why did the pre-Incan Nazca Indians carve long mysterious grooves in the Peruvian desert, lines that form enormous outlines of animals, spirals, zigzags and parallels? The fact that many patterns are clearly distinguishable only when viewed from the air led Erich von Daniken to claim that the Nazca lines were a landing strip for UFOs. According to the author, Hadingham, argues that some of the patterns were aids to shamanistic practice, others were fertility symbols, still others were markers linking holy spots. His throughly documented, beautifully written and richly illustrated account is must reading for anyone intrigued by this enigma.
