If you have an Amazon account feel free to visit my Amazon Author Page and click follow so you can stay updated on the latest news concerning my upcoming books.
With that said, I now introduce to you a list of books; in addition to my book, that I believe you will enjoy. In this list I include books that I have authored; the first of which will be released this coming July 2019, as well as books authored by family and friends. In addition to those, I have also listed books that I have enjoyed in the past and as long as I breathe, I don’t expect this list to ever be completed. In that light, it should remain permanently under construction.
I start this list with books written by my late mother, Betty Dorsett Duke. These books represent over two decades of research into our family history/mystery regarding my great, great grandfather Jesse James aka James L. Courtney. You can read more about that at my mothers website here and much more about this historical adventure in her books shown below.
I hope you all enjoy reading Jesse James and the Lost Templar Treasure!

“Notorious outlaw Jesse James’s great-great-grandchildren present the results of more than 20 years of exhaustive research into state and federal records, photographs, newspaper reports, diaries, and DNA tests to confirm their family’s oral tradition that James faked his own death in 1882 and lived out his remaining days in Texas.”
My sister, Teresa F. Duke and I are pleased to announce the continuation of our late mother’s work. Our deepest thanks to our agent Fiona Spencer Thomas, and to our friend, author and editor Phillipa Lee; who writes as Phillipa Faulks, for her valuable assistance.
Now Available for pre-order and slated for release this coming June 2020.

Drawing Water from a Deep Well
Below is a list of most of the books that I referenced in my first book, ‘Jesse James and the Lost Templar Treasure‘. Soon I hope to include the journals, articles, websites, interviews and other media I drew from. I wish to express my admiration and thanks to the authors and sources both past and present.
Portae Lucis by Joseph ben Abraham Gikatilla (1248 -1325), The book below was printed in 1516 and is a Latin translation by Paulus Ricius also known as Paolo Riccio (1480 – 1541). Riccio was a Jewish convert to Christianity, the physician to Emperor Maximilian I, and served as a professor of philosophy at the University of Pavia.

Here are some more wonderful books which I highly recommend!
“Miracle-worker or man of straw? Count Alessandro Cagliostro was a cult figure of European society in the tumultuous years leading to the French Revolution. An alchemist, healer and Freemason, he inspired both wild devotion and savage ridicule – as well as novels by Alexandre Dumas, a drama by Goethe and Mozart’s opera The Magic Flute.
Count Alessandro Cagliostro’s sincere belief in the magical powers, including immortality, conferred by his Egyptian Rite of Freemasonry won him fame, but made him dangerous enemies, too. His celebrated travels through the Middle East and the capitals of Europe ended abruptly in…” Read More
“The spiritual teachings of Israel’s biblical prophetesses from a kabbalistic perspective
• Explores the lives and symbolic significance of seven female prophets: Sarah, Miriam, Devorah, Chanah, Avigail, Chuldah, and Esther
• Uses the gematria of Jewish metaphysics to demonstrate that prophecy is a mystical initiatory path by which Divine Will is made known, not only a tool for telling the future
• Presents practical applications of kabbalistic teachings for spiritual development
The seven prophetesses of Israel–Sarah, Miriam, Devorah, Chanah, Avigail, Chuldah, and Esther–lived between 1800 and 350 BCE. Their combined lives reflect a kabbalistic path of spiritual evolution that is as pertinent to our lives today as it was for…” Read More
“Kabbalistic initiatory teachings for becoming a vessel for illumination, prophecy, and peace by creating an inner dwelling place for God’s divine presence
• Reveals practices for self mastery and revelation based on the holy design of the first Hebrew Sanctuary, the lives of the Hebrew Prophets, and the Tree of Life
• Shows how the Tree of Life’s ten sefirot correspond to the Torah’s prophetic Ten Songs of Creation; to alchemical ritual practices of fire, water, air, and earth; and to specific parts of the body, emotions, and aspects of the soul
Many synagogues and churches, including the First and Second Temples of the Hebrews, follow an archetypal design first used in the Ohel Moed, or Tent of Meeting, and its sacred Tabernacle, which housed the Ark of the Covenant and the Ten Commandments. Drawing from a wealth of sources including the Hebrew Bible, the oral Mishnaic tradition of Judaism, and 16th-century Judaic texts, Zohara Hieronimus explains how, like the Ohel Moed, we are designed to receive and reflect the…” Read More
