Within months of the end of the ground war in Iraq, the British private military company, or PMC, Global Risk Strategies, had been contracted to deliver some 3.5 billion US dollars worth of the new Iraqi currency throughout the country and collect in the region of 10,000 tons of the old banknotes for destruction.Between September of 2003 and April of 2004, over 1,000 road trips were undertaken throughout Iraq to deliver the new specie. In the end, the cost of printing the new money was calculated at $130 million and the operational costs would exceed $70 million.In October of 2003, the single fiercest firefight since the end of formal hostilities erupted around one of Global's convoys, and made headline news around the world.

Handed down over generations, re-told by master storyteller Helen Caldwell Cushman, they still beckon. "These are the secrets that we who live along Thirty Mile River keep," they say.
Author: Helen Cushman
Publisher: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform
HELEN CALDWELL CUSHMAN (1905-1986) was many people - wife and muse to the young Erskine Caldwell of the novel Tobacco Road, devoted mother of Erskine Jr., Dabney and Janet, and an entertaining personality in her own right to local radio and newspaper audiences. But most of all, to the many alive today who still remember her, she was a great storyteller. She found her stories, as most storytellers do, in the people and places she loved. For her, that was the two hundred square miles of forests, lakes and ponds called Thirty Mile River. She had come to Thirty Mile River as a child, daughter of legendary University of Virginia basketball coach "Pop" Lannigan, to a former inn called Greentrees, on Parker Pond in Mt. Vernon. While her father ran a summer training camp for his Virginia basketball players, she canoed in nearby Parker Pond and explored the surrounding countryside. She believed the spirits of the Indians, who once call the land theirs alone, inhabited these places; she felt and even saw them. Collected here are her own stories of the strange and supernatural, along with ghostly folk tales she gathered from towns around.
