The Cold War was a complex, high-stakes period in world history during which the slightest mistake by JFK or Khrushchev—or their underlings—had the potential to devastate millions of... More > lives.

Driving on the Lake Bed By R. A. Christmas
eBook (PDF): $5.00
Wherever we live, there’s usually signs that the land was once under water. In Utah, the shoreline of a vast, ancient lake stretches for miles across the face of the Wasatch Mountains. We... More > live out our lives on these lake or ocean beds—in between deluges, of water or otherwise. Our geologic settings are reminders of how temporary and hazardous life can be. We navigate (so to speak) this formerly wet ground in autos and on highways. Driving has become symbolic of modern life. Even out of our cars we “breakdown” and “run out of gas.” These poems are statements of one man’s experience driving on Utah’s lakebed. He survives his wild youth and two divorces. Married a third (and hopefully last) time, he comes to terms with his Mormon faith and culture, and contemplates an awesome landscape. After many miles he learns a great lesson—not to stop, no matter what—to persevere, to keep “driving”—to the end.< Less
The 50 / 60 Kid - A Palo Alto Dreamer By Jane Richter Horton
eBook (ePub): $5.99
What was Silicon Valley like before it was "Silicon Valley?” For both those who recollect the Bay Area in different times, and those who only know it now, this story delights with how... More > things used to be; the orchards, Sunday afternoon drives, and children who explored creeks, neighborhoods and life with intensity and passion. Growing up in Palo Alto in the 1950s meant a life of stories about good and bad guys: Davy Crockett, Communists, Republicans, the Church, and Mickey Mouse Club. Jane's vivid imagination is both her salvation and her nemesis; the world through her eyes reminds us how imagination can triumph in even the most mundane situations. This is a coming-of-age story and a look back at her youth in Palo Alto; simultaneously a biography and a commentary on culture, values, family, progress and change. More than 30 photographs enrich Jane's story, and you may find yourself remembering childhood wonders, joys, and confusions as you relax and reflect with the Palo Alto Dreamer.< Less
