Just for a Thrill
Lil Hardin Armstrong, First Lady of Jazz James L. Dickerson | Non-fiction | Biography

Along with Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington, Lillian “Lil” Hardin (1898-1971) was arguably the third most crucial figure in the creation of popular jazz, but today her important contributions are largely unknown today because of past and present hostility of male jazz critics. Today’s “MeToo” generation should embrace Lil Armstrong for the pioneer that she was. No other genre of American music has been quite so inhospitable to women as jazz, which makes it perfect timing for the reprint edition of this important book. Publishers hope to soon see this book in development for a motion picture.

I'm Not From the South But I Got Down Here As Fast As I Could

How a Connecticut Yankee Learned To Love Grits, and Fried Green Tomatoes—and Lived To Tell About It

Tony Vanderwarker

Non-Fiction | Memoir | Humor

We moved from Chicago to Charlottesville by accident. It was a fluke that we happened to fall in love with an old house in the sticks and decided to uproot our family and try a simpler life.  Little did we know that it would not only be a new venue but that it would change all of us for the better. We learned to slow down and say “Y’all”, survive weeklong blackouts and stinking hot weather, we gave up the Bears and Cubs and became rabid ACC football, basketball and lacrosse fans and learned to love foods we’d never even seen before. We found ourselves leaving our snotty and uppity Northern attitudes behind and gradually turning into relaxed, play-it-as-it-lays Southerners who valued watching the finches turn from brown to yellow, watching ants help peonies blossom and lightning bugs sparkle against the night sky.


Raised in New England, Vanderwarker went to Andover and Yale, graduated from NYU, served in the Marine Corps and Peace Corps and had a successful career in advertising in New York and Chicago before he decided to chuck it all and move to the South.

Trader Jon's: Cradle of U.S. Naval Aviation

Text by James L. Dickerson, Photographs by Steve Gardner | Category: biography/history
Available formats:Paperback and eBook

“Trader Jon’s was a place where Naval Aviators went to relax, swap stories and enjoy each others' company. I cherish the memories of my time spent there.” U.S. Senator John McCain

Trader Jon’s: Cradle of U.S. Naval Aviation is a history of one the most famous bars in American history—and a tribute to all the U.S. Navy Aviators who passed through its doors. A gritty strip joint in which local women made good money taking off their clothing, it also was the secret location for the initiation of Newbie flyers for the legendary Blue Angels and Thunderbirds.

When Trader Jon’s owner, Martin Weismann, died in 2000, the bar was closed and his memorabilia collection, valued at more than $2 million, was purchased by a Pensacola law firm and donated to the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation, where it will be preserved and maintained in Pensacola. Among those who mourned the bar’s passing is Retired Vice Admiral Jack Fetterman, who recalls Weismann as someone who never said anything bad about anyone: “You talk about bonding, and you talk about brotherhood, and you talk about what naval aviation was all about. Trader kind of provided that foundation.”

One measure of the Navy’s deep regard for Weismann is the singular honor it afforded him by naming a runway after him—TRADR-ONE.

Pure Americana
“This is an interesting piece of Americana. The US reviewers presumably knew the bar, and the aviators, and wanted more on them. For the UK reader, however, this is an intriguing slice of US life.

Trader Jon ran a bar in Pensacola, which was frequented by actors, aviators, early astronauts, locals and tourists - including Prince Andrew. The bar had strippers for many years, but later changed to bands.

This book focuses on a series of interviews and photographs by a writer and photographer when the acts were strip shows, and Trader Jon ruled supreme. The photos are restrained, and are aimed at showing character, rather than flesh. The writing tries to give a voice to the dancers, and does so well. I suspect this started life as a magazine article, but it works well as a short book, taking under an hour to read.

The main part of the book gives a flavor of a day at Trader Jon's, probably already past its peak. There's a real feel for the complexity of the relationships, although it could perhaps have probed further into Trader Jon himself. There are some odd snippets - encouraging a reluctant bar maid to strip, and employing a childhood friend of his daughter as a dancer - that suggest a more nuanced character than is described in the book. The story arc is that of a day in a bar - quiet preparation, the build up of activity, the peak of the evening, and the slide in to slightly embarrassed tawdriness when the lights come up at the end of the night. Trader Jon's is closed, but there's a flavor of it left in this book.”—Medaris (Amazon UK).

Trader Jon's Photographer

Rambling Steve Gardner

Rambling Steve Gardner is an internationally known bluesman who is based in Japan. But before the blues there was photography. In 1980 he left his photography job at the Clarion-Ledger/Jackson Daily News and moved to Japan where he freelanced for Japanese magazines as well as Time and Newsweek. He covered Asia and the US from Japan and still found time for the blues. He recorded his first CD in 2002, Rambling With The Blues.

Writes Gardner: “The photography still counts but it has taken a back seat to the guitars and harmonicas. I travel to several Universities in Japan where I play blues and do programs on Mississippi and southern culture. I even do this part-time for Meiji University, a very fine institution indeed. My new CD Wooly Bully Express more or less sums up what I think about these turbulent and changing times. If life is like a bottle of whiskey, you better drink it all and not waste a drop. Remember, you can't be afraid and live free. After all, everybody gets the blues . . . sometime.”

The Hero Among Us: Memoirs of an FBI Witness Hunter

By Jim Ingram with James L. Dickerson / Introduction by former Mississippi Governor William F. Winter

Crime-Fighting FBI Agent was America’s Top Expert on Terrorism

Jim Ingram is to the FBI what Elliot Ness was to the Treasury Department—a larger-than-life symbol of American justice, a Klan-busting crime fighter who was involved with some of the highest profile FBI cases of the 1960s and 1970s.

In his memoir Ingram provides insider information about those cases.

Jim Ingram was the primary source in journalist Jack Nelson’s 1993 bestselling book, “Terror in the Night: The Klan’s Campaign Against the Jews,” which focused on the FBI’s infiltration of the Klan in an effort to protect Mississippi Jews.

Jim Ingram passed away in August 2009 of cancer, but worked on this memoir with co-author James L. Dickerson right up until his death. Following his death, the FBI supplied Dickerson with more than 1,400 pages of previously classified documents to supplement Ingram’s recollections.

Interestingly, after nearly 30 years with the FBI, Ingram was brought out of retirement in the 2000s as a cold-case investigator of Mississippi civil rights-era murders, casting him into his fifth decade of crime fighting. Among the historic cases worked by Ingram:

  • The assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
  • The “Mississippi Burning” civil rights murders.
  • The assassination of Martin Luther King.
  • The murder of Federal Judge John H. Woods, known by friends and detractors as “Maximum John.” The convicted hit man was actor Woody Harrelson’s father, Charles Harrelson.
  • The bombing of Beth Israel Temple (Jackson, Mississippi).
  • The FBI counterintelligence operation known as COINTELPRO.
  • The FALN bombings by Puerto Rican separatists.

In this memoir, Jim Ingram provides insider information on the above high-profile cases and others, along with a personal perspective on his nearly 30-year career of law enforcement. During that career, he headed up the FBI offices in New York and Chicago, and was in charge of the violent crimes civil rights desk in Mississippi in the 1960s, and served in the 1970s as deputy assistant FBI director in Washington, DC. In the later years of his career, he became the FBI’s top expert on terrorism. This book discloses, for the first time, how he secretly trained U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force personnel on terrorism.

After his retirement from the FBI, Ingram served as Public Safety Commissioner for the State of Mississippi, which put him in charge of the Highway Patrol, an agency that had been heavily infiltrated by the KKK while he was head of the FBI civil rights desk in Mississippi. Appointed by Governor Kirk Fordice, a conservative Republican with a penchant for abrasiveness, Ingram became good friends with the man despite their political differences.

About the Editor/Author
Journalist James L. Dickerson has published numerous biographies and histories, including “Devil’s Sanctuary: An Eyewitness History of Mississippi Hate Crimes,” “Dixie’s Dirty Secret,” “Just for a Thrill: Lil Hardin Armstrong, First Lady of Jazz,” and “Yellow Fever: A Deadly Disease Poised to Kill Again.” An award-winning journalist, he has worked as a staff writer for three Pulitzer Prize-winning newspapers, The Commercial Appeal (Memphis), the Clarion-Ledger/Jackson Daily News (Jackson, MS) and the Delta Democrat-Times (Greenville, MS). He is a leading writer of civil rights history and organized crime in the South. His writing is listed in the FBI’s Bibliography Related to Crime Scene Interpretation with Emphases in Forensic Geotaphonomic and Forensic Archaeological Field Techniques, compiled by Special Agent Michael J. Hochrein.
