Where to find John Anderson online
Free Love: Cultivating the Garden of Eden in America
Free Love will be recognized as the defining book about America’s early social experiments to end sexism. It restores to the public consciousness all the forgotten heroes who risked everything to achieve equal rights for women.
Girty: The Legend
Recognizing that the past is nothing more than the stories we tell about it, "Girty: The Legend" examines the myth of Simon Girty, the legendary “white savage” who terrorized the American western frontier. Stories are still written about Daniel Boone and his fellow heroes; but now that the Indians have been exterminated or removed, the Girty myth is no longer useful. His story is fascinating.
The Wages of Gin
The Wages of Gin is a work of fiction and any resemblance to actual people is purely coincidental. Yeah, sure. It is indeed concerned with people the author has known and jobs he has held. But unlike Jack Collins, the murderous character who confesses here, the author has never killed anyone.
