Convention of Statesmen


Preorder Special on "Am I Not a Man? The Dred Scott Story"

Valor Publishing spent the last two days at the LDSBA booksellers convention in Sandy, UT. Mark Shurtleff came and did a 2-hour signing on the first day and by the end of the second day it was the most talked about book at the convention. All in all, Mark wowed the booksellers and his book blew them away. Almost every store, sans Canada, U.K. and New Zealand, placed orders for "Am I Not a Man? The Dred Scott Story".

In celebration of this wonderful success we decided to tweak our preorders on Mark Shurtleff's book.

Labor Day Special! Valor Publishing has decided to offer the LIMITED FIRST EDITION, numbered, autographed "Am I Not a Man? The Dred Scott Story" at a 12% discount through Labor Day.

This is an heirloom quality book with decaled edges and one worth placing in every single library, be it home, school or city. Only 5,000 of these books (Yes, we doubled it) will be printed. You will receive yours a full 14 days before it hits the shelves. After that, the book will be released in hardback to the stores nationwide.

Here is an excerpt from "Am I not a Man? The Dred Scott Story" by Mark L. Shurtleff:

"To him, the river sang. It intoned but one word, repeated with every ripple, and lap, and tide. One word that began with a gurgle far to the North, crescendoed through the heart of a nation, and climaxed in the Deep South with such force that no power on earth could hold it back. One word that bled from every pore. One word: FREEDOM!"

"The “Father of Waters” sang, not with the splash of waves lapping against the levee, for the Mighty Mississippi was wide, and thick, and slow. It slid like a solid mass of glacial mud that had been moving toward the sea since before the Fall of Adam. It was ancient by the time Moses led the Children of Israel out of slavery in Egypt. No, its melody was something more profound and ancient, and it harmonized with something deep inside Dred, and filled his very being so that he was powerless to ignore it. He turned toward the river, closed his eyes, and whispered the song of the slave."
