Bibliography of other Piper work

"Altamont sat in silence, smoking his pipe and trying to form some conception of the wealth under that concrete floor.  It was no use.  Jim Loudons probably understood a little more nearly what those books would mean to the world of today, and what they could do toward shaping the world of the future."

Rebel Raider

"Mosby made the cavalry a formidable amalgamation of fire power and mobility and his influence on military history was felt directly, and survived him by many years.  In his last days, while living in Washington, the old Confederate guerrilla had a youthful friend, a young cavalry lieutenant fresh from West Point, to whom he enjoyed telling the stories of his raids and battles and to whom he preached his gospel of fire and mobility.  This young disciple of Mosby's old age was to make that gospel his own, and to practice it, later, with great success. The name of this young officer was George S. Patton, Jr."
