"The Secret lives of Alexandra David-Neel is the definitive biography of the first European to explore Tibet at a time when foreigners were banned; few have led a life of adventure equal to hers, or made so much of it." "In Tibet and Sikkim, David-Neel lived among hermits and shamans, bandits and pilgrims. She had a torrid love affair with the handsome Maharajah of Sikkim and studied with a genuine master in a cave high in the Himalayas. Herself a Buddhist, David-Neel knew first-hand the Tibet of magic and mystery closed to other travelers from the West, the secret mystical practices of Tibetan Buddhism including out-of-body travel, telepathy, vampiric Shamanism, and tantric sex. After returning to France, she wrote some thirty books, among them My Journey to Lhasa and Magic and Mystery in Tibet. She has had a profound influence on, among other things, Beat culture and the emergence of an American Buddhism."--Jacket

Young, handsome Christian, an English aristocrat, is mysteriously kidnapped and sent to the American Colonies, a new, raw land where he works as an indentured servant and spy. There, renamed Jack Hill, he meets pirates, thieves, cut-throats and villains and gentle Moravians and Quakers. He falls in love with the beautiful and cruel Lisa and the saintly Rebecca. He learns to fight and love equally well. Side by side with the great men and women of American history, he joins heroes of the Revolution here portrayed as real men, including George Washington and Alexander Hamilton, not the flawless statues we have come to expect from Right Wing propaganda.
