Black Elk Speaks

John G. Neihardt

Glory Days

Melissa Fraterrigo

Praise from Chicago Tribune:

“A brutally beautiful tale about tortured souls in a Midwestern inferno of lost jobs, lost hopes, lost connections.”




Atlas of Nebraska

Edited by J. Clark Archer et al

Featured in Omaha World-Herald:

“How about the paths of tornadoes across the state? The origins of foreign-born Nebraskans? Areas state-designated as short of physicians, dentists and pharmacists? Or how horses have migrated from rural to urban areas? There are maps for all that.”

Rails of War

Steven James Hanzis

Review on Strategy Page:

“As he tells the story of the organization, movement, and work of these troops, Hantzis also gives us a look at the battalion’s personnel and their individual experiences coping with alien cultures and war. . . . Rails of War will prove a profitable read for anyone interested in military railroading or the CBI.”

“The study is an exemplar of what close reading can accomplish, and its prose is always polished, exact, and eminently lucid.”
