Books

In Cold Storage by James W. Hewitt

9780803256637-Perfect.indd

Review from Federal Trial Judge blog Hercules and the Umpire:

“What makes the book sing is the writing. The reader is patiently told of the facts with the skill of the best newspaper writer. We learn the texture and the feel of the place and the people. The official story is told, and then deconstructed with the scalpel of an experienced lawyer.”

Smith CheatedNEW

Praise from the Christian Science Monitor:

“Probably no college athletic scandal has ever been reported in as much detail as Jay M. Smith and Mary Willingham have done in Cheated, which exposes the extensive dirty academic laundry at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill campus . . . they expose not only the shenanigans but the university’s efforts at damage control.”

Prairie Forge by James J. Kimble

Applause from the Journal of American History:

“Kimble tells this tale in a fresh and clear manner. His research is thorough, and his devotion to the subject obvious.”
