Not on the Mayflower tells about the life of Dietrich W. Botstiber in Austria during the first part of the twentieth century. He describes an Austria of great beauty and bounty that, over those years, diminished in size, culture, wealth and prestige, due in large part to the breakup of the Dual Habsburg Empire, the 1938 Anschluss and the ensuing war. Botstiber witnessed the most unsettling times in Austrian history, and he recounts his own unhappiness in a country that offered him little opportunity to apply his technical skills and interests. Dietrich Botstiber believed that Americans did not fully appreciate the Austrian predicament leading up to World War II. His autobiography goes a long way toward imparting an understanding of the difficult social and economic conditions in Austria during this period. It also tells a story about the cultural life in Vienna during the early decades of the twentieth century, and about the lives of immigrants to the United States who managed to make significant contributions to their adopted country.

Finally buttressed with Natures bounty, fortified with Natures gifts, testifying to Natures truth we must be ready to take a leap in faith. The hardest leap of faith to believe in; is a leap of faith in each other, in the individual. In the end the only way a government of the Individuals, by the Individuals for the Individual can long endure on the face of the Earth. Faith in God alone cannot suffice for such a government to work. It is the most necessary prerequisite for such a government to exist. But it cannot retain it cannot nurture it because the government is a covenant a pact made between God and the individual. If we lose faith in the individual we break the sacred pact. Being granted so many gifts the last act is in our own hands we are the City on the Hill when we believe we are the City on the Hill. When we act the part we are the Light of the world and the Inspiration to the World. It is really simple, if enough individuals carry out this leap of faith, a new critical mass will be reached, and a miracle will turn the tide in our affairs once more and we like the patriots of old will once again fulfill our own self-actualization process and bequeath to our posterity the ability and responsibility to reach their own.

The Plymouth Papers is a unique, multilayered historical novel about an American founding myth. It is the story of the Mayflower and the founding of the first permanent colony in New England told from multiple points of view and focusing on one of the most interesting Mayflower passengers, Stephen Hopkins, and his family, particularly his sons, Giles and Caleb, and his daughter, Ruth. It is also the story of the Indians, primarily the Wampanoag, without whom the so-called "Pilgrims" would not have survived. What is unique about the story is that it explores not only the relationship Giles has with his wife, a half-Wampanoag woman, but also the relationships Caleb has with a Wampanoag man and Ruth has with a two-spirit woman-man, Pequas. Needless to say, these characters do their best to hide these relationships from the Puritans, whose penalties for homosexuality include whipping, branding, and even death. The "Plymouth Papers" are discovered on Cape Cod during the Civil War by Caleb Taylor, a book publisher, abolitionist, and self-described devotee of Emerson, Thoreau, and Hawthorne from Boston. The Plymouth Papers are documents from the 17th century written by some of Caleb Taylor's ancestors: journals, memoirs, and letters by Stephen Hopkins, his sons Giles and Caleb, his daughter, Ruth, Giles's wife, Catherine, and her father, Gabriel Whelden. Caleb Taylor transcribes the manuscripts in 1864 with his own running commentary on the war, the government's separate war on the Indians, and his efforts to dissuade his 16-year-old nephew, Paul, from joining the Union Army. Caleb Taylor plans to publish the Papers himself until he makes a startling, and for him, shocking discovery, and it is not about the fact Stephen Hopkins had been shipwrecked in 1609, reprieved from a sentence of death for mutiny, and returned home to find himself a widower who is later recruited by the Separatist Puritans to sail on the Mayflower and help found New Plymouth in 1620. Nor is it about the fact that Caleb's ancestor, Giles Hopkins, married a half-Indian woman, a Wampanoag. Caleb Taylor's discovery has to do with the longest document in the Papers, the confessional memoir by Giles Hopkins. A member of the Church of England, Giles tells the story of the Mayflower and Plymouth Colony from a non-Separatist point of view sympathetic to the Indians, who suffer atrocities at the hands of the Puritans. As he and his father recount the tale of the founding of Plymouth and Stephen's role as emissary to the Indians, Giles also remembers those who were persecuted by the Puritans because of their religion (the Anabaptists and the Quakers) and tells the story of those who suffered such punishments as whipping, branding, and even hanging for breaking laws against certain sexual behaviors. When Giles discovers a truth about his younger brother, Caleb, Giles snaps and commits a crime so heinous he sends his brother literally to sea. Eventually Caleb dies on Barbados. The stories are connected in several ways. Each main character lives in a time of injustice, war, and puritanical intolerance and hatred. All are related by blood to each other. All feel sympathy for, even a spiritual connection with, Native Americans. All are involved in controversial or contentious relationships either with a significant other and/or with a family member. And all are thoughtful, educated, spiritual men who, like the men and women they love, are seeking to love and be loved. This is the central theme of the novel, this need to love and be loved.

Our American government began with a revolutionary idea. Alexis de Tocqueville called the evolutionary process of revolution wherein society evolves and institutes sweeping changes in government. The government of the United States was the most unique creation of human history since it was an actual collaboration between Nature and the Individual, for Nature and the Individual, with the express purpose of facilitating and improving that relationship. It took all of humanitys history, its successes and failures along with Natures tools of inspiration and evolution for the conception to manifest itself, until a government of the Individuals, by the Individuals, for the Individual, had come into being. The individual citizens of the United Colonies were living in a state of grace with nature and the society they made up created a clear mirror image of themselves, including internal equilibriums intended to preserve their self actualization process. A few years later, another revolution took place, one de Tocqueville would call the political kind. This revolution occurred in France, it would be the precursor for many other modern revolutions wherein one Centralized Collective Authority replaces another and where government attempts to impose its will on society. Today, in America this spiritual battle continues. On one side is the Tea Party Patriots carrying on the spiritual tradition of our Founders and Framers, on the other side those who look toward the archaic Eurocentric and Asiatic concepts of an all powerful Centralized Collective Authority.

December weather in New England, even at its best, is a test of physical endurance. With warm clothes and sheltering homes today, we find compensations for the cold winds and storms in the exhilarating winter sports and the good cheer of the holiday season. The passengers of The Mayflower anchored in Plymouth harbor, three hundred years ago, lacked compensations of sports or fireside warmth. One hundred and two in number when they sailed,—of whom twenty-nine were women,—they had been crowded for ten weeks into a vessel that was intended to carry about half the number of passengers. In low spaces between decks, with some fine weather when the open hatchways allowed air to enter and more stormy days when they were shut in amid discomforts of all kinds, they had come at last within sight of the place where, contrary to their plans, they were destined to make their settlement. At Plymouth, England, their last port in September, they had “been kindly entertained and courteously used by divers friends there dwelling,” but they were homeless now, facing a new country with frozen shores, menaced by wild animals and yet more fearsome savages. Whatever trials of their good sense and sturdy faith came later, those days of waiting until shelter could be raised on shore, after the weeks of confinement, must have challenged their physical and spiritual fortitude. There must have been exciting days for the women on shipboard and in landing. There must have been hours of distress for the older and the delight in adventure which is an unchanging trait of the young of every race. Wild winds carried away some clothes and cooking-dishes from the ship; there was a birth and a death, and occasional illness, besides the dire seasickness. John Howland, “the lustie young man,” fell overboard but he caught hold of the topsail halyard which hung extended and so held on “though he was sundry fathoms under water,” until he was pulled up by a rope and rescued by a boat-hook. Recent research has argued that the captain of The Mayflower was probably not Thomas Jones, with reputation for severity, but a Master Christopher Jones of kindlier temper. The former captain was in Virginia, in September, 1620, according to this account. With the most generous treatment which the captain and crew could give to the women, they must have been sorely tried. There were sick to be nursed, children to be cared for, including some lively boys who played with powder and nearly caused an explosion at Cape Cod; nourishment must be found for all from a store of provisions that had been much reduced by the delays and necessary sales to satisfy their “merchant adventurers” before they left England. They slept on damp bedding and wore musty clothes; they lacked exercise and water for drink or cleanliness. Joyful for them must have been the day recorded by Winslow and Bradford,—“On Monday the thirteenth of November our people went on shore to refresh themselves and our women to wash, as they had great need.”
