Skull Collectors by Ann Fabian Skull Collectors, Hardback (October 2010)

When Philadelphia naturalist Samuel George Morton died in 1851, no one cut off his head, boiled away its flesh, and added his grinning skull to a collection of crania. This title tells the strange - and at times gruesome - story of Morton, his contemporaries, and their search for a scientific foundation for racial difference.

Unvarnished Truth by Ann Fabian Unvarnished Truth, Paperback (May 2002)

A collection of tales that show cultural history of how ordinary Americans crafted and sold their stories of hardship and calamity during the nineteenth century. It examines the tales of beggars, convicts, ex-slaves, prisoners of the Confederacy, and others to explore cultural authority, truth-telling, and the nature of print media.
