Detroit

by David Lee Poremba, Detroit Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Detroit books, On July 24, 1701, Antoine de La Mothe Cadillac stood in the heart of the wilderness on a bluff overlooking the Detroit River and claimed this frontier in the name of Louis XIV; thus began the story of Detroit, a city marked by pioneering spirits, industrial acumen, and uncommon durability. Over the course of its 300-year history, Detroit has been sculpted into a city unique in the American experience by its extraordinary mixture of diverse cultures: American Indian, French, British, American colonial, and a variety of immigrant newcomers. Detroit: A Motor City History documents the major events that shaped this once-small French fur-trading outpost across three centuries of conflict and prosperity. Through informative text and a variety of imagery, readers experience firsthand the struggles of the nascent village against raiding Indian tribes and the incessant political and military tug of war between the colonial French and English, and then American interests. Like many other major cities across the United States, Detroit played a pivotal role in establishing the country's economic and industrial power in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, serving as a center for its well-known civilian and military mass-production resources. This visual history provides insight into Detroit's rapid evolution from a hamlet into a metropolis against a backdrop of important community and national affairs: the decimating fire of 1805, the War of 1812, the Civil War, the Industrial Revolution, the Great Depression, and both world wars.

Download Off Camera Affair 2 The Motor City Drama Series books, Kai is overjoyed about her pregnancy and her romantic new beginning with Frank, a man who satisfies her heart as much as her extraordinary libido. In spite of the outrageous antics of his salty ex-wife, the two enjoy a passion-filled relationship. The baby Kai is carrying is a miracle all its own, after she received a grim diagnosis that she would never be able to conceive. But what Frank doesn’t know could hurt him because he has no clue that the bun in Kai’s oven may belong to another man. For Kai, it means she will have to get more than her hands dirty to discreetly solve her baby-daddy dilemma. Meanwhile, Kai uses her skills as an investigative TV reporter to uncover the truth about her sister, LaNaya, now a suspected murderer. The evidence draws Kai into a world of swinger parties, online prostitution, and something far more sinister. As she gets closer to solving the crime, she finds danger right on her own doorstep. In addition to Kai’s off-air drama, her ex-boyfriend crosses a line that can’t be uncrossed when he does the unspeakable. Playing the role of Kai’s protector, Frank hires a bodyguard to keep her safe, but someone at the security agency causes Kai to look at her relationship from a new perspective. Can Kai’s love for Frank withstand the chaos of the ultimate test? Who really fathered her child? Will Kai catch the real killer and clear her sister’s name before it’s too late? Kai usually reports on the leading news story, but she suddenly finds herself right in the middle of it. In this second installment of the “Motor City Drama Series,” sex, secrets, and murder make for primetime drama.

Motor City Burning A Novel

by Bill Morris, Motor City Burning A Novel Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Motor City Burning A Novel books, From the critically acclaimed author of Motor City, Detroit comes alive in a powerful and thrilling novel set amidst the chaos of the race riots and the serenity of Opening Day. Willie Bledsoe, once an idealistic young black activist, is now a burnt-out case. After leaving a snug berth at Tuskegee Institute to join the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, he has become bitterly disillusioned with the civil rights movement and its leaders. He returns home to Alabama to try to write a memoir about his time in the cultural whirlwind, but the words fail to come. The surprise return of his Vietnam veteran brother in the spring of 1967 gives Willie a chance to drive a load of smuggled guns to the Motor City – and make enough money to jump-start his stalled dream of writing his movement memoir. There, at Tiger Stadium on Opening Day of the 1968 baseball season – postponed two days in deference to the funeral of Martin Luther King, Jr. – Willie learns some terrifying news: the Detroit police are still investigating the last unsolved murder from the bloody, apocalyptic riot of the previous summer, and a white cop named Frank Doyle will not rest until the case is solved. And Willie is his prime suspect. Bill Morris's rich and thrilling new novel sets Doyle's hunt amid the history of one of America's most tortured and fascinating cities, as Doyle and Willie struggle with Detroit's deep racial divide, with revenge and forgiveness – and with the realization that justice is rarely attainable, and rarely just.
