06 Great Plains By Dartmouth Atlas Group
Paperback: $20.82
Prints in 3-5 business days
Medicine involves decisions. But for Medicare patients with conditions for which surgery is an option, whether they undergo elective surgery depends largely on where they live and the clinicians they... More > see. Research suggests that for many conditions -- especially those that can be treated with elective surgery -- the treatment a patient receives depends more on the physician's recommendations than the patient's preferences. When studying elective surgeries, the Dartmouth Atlas found remarkable variation in these "preference-sensitive" procedures for Medicare patients, even though they had similar conditions. This series, a collaborative project with the Informed Medical Decisions Foundation, looks at the variation in surgical rates in 306 hospital referral regions across the United States. Each report highlights one of nine regions and shows the variation that exists even across these smaller geographic areas.< Less

Screenplay for a major motion picture. The year is 1927. It's the Roaring Twenties. The age of flappers and bootleg gin. Lindbergh flew the Atlantic. Barnstormers and wingwalkers risked their... More > lives over Midwest prairies and fields. Talking movies were born. Girls bobbed their hair and rolled down their stockings. Boys wore raccoon coats, carried hip flasks and terrorized the roadways in galloping jalopies. But on a small, hardscrabble farmstead in Southeastern Oklahoma, the modern world was far away. A poor farm family with seven children had lost their farm and was forced to set out on a journey across the Great Plains in three tiny prairie schooners. They encountered twisters, flashfloods and blizzards, Indians, barnstormers and bank robbers, injury, accident and runaway horses. It was a remarkable journey.

Across the Plains By Robert Louis Stevenson
eBook (ePub): $1.37
“…one child, who had lost her parents, screamed steadily and with increasing shrillness, as though verging towards a fit; an official kept her by him, but no one else seemed so much as... More > to remark her distress; and I am ashamed to say that I ran among the rest”.

Stevenson describes the train as having three sections: one for women and children, one for men, and one for Chinese. He notes that while the Europeans looked down on the Chinese for being dirty, in fact the Chinese carriages were the freshest and their passengers the cleanest.< Less
Across The Plains By Robert Louis Stevenson
eBook (ePub): $2.99
It was, if I remember rightly, five o'clock when we were all signalled to be present at the Ferry Depot of the railroad. An emigrant ship had arrived at New York on the Saturday night, another on the... More > Sunday morning, our own on Sunday afternoon, a fourth early on Monday; and as there is no emigrant train on Sunday a great part of the passengers from these four ships was concentrated on the train by which I was to travel. There was a babel of bewildered men, women, and children. Open carts full of bedding stood by the half-hour in the rain. The officials loaded each other with recriminations. A bearded, mildewed little man, whom I take to have been an emigrant agent, was all over the place, his mouth full of brimstone, blustering and interfering. It was plain that the whole system, if system there was, had utterly broken down under the strain of so many passengers.< Less

If you are looking for diversity of style and content you are in the right place: we are as different as Snowflakes on the Plains: each with an exquisite pattern, a delicate crystal of the same... More > substance. Sometimes one could even think that we are as different as chalk and cheese!

There is a fascination with the meaning of life and death and the universe itself. Exploring the past, present and the future: the hidden meanings behind it all, and there is even a good dose of larrikinism to stop us being too serious or over pompous about any of these things!< Less
