Once the Tri-State lead and zinc mining area of chunks of Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri was the world's most productive. It was also socially the toughest, roughest and most dangerous from falling rocks, premature explosions of dynamite and just plain murder. This historical fiction is how a young boy grew up to meet his career destiny, dream of being a circus lion-tamer. The author writes with humor, insight, sensitivity and the brutality of daily life. The author could have been the sensitive young man protagonist of Hard Rock, this book. Today the Tri-State is the most polluted, depressed spot on the planet earth. Everything is totally ruined, even the people still there, but they live on-still some with dreams of a better day that has not yet come.

In 1969, Ricahrd Oakes and Adam Fortunate Eagle, then known as Adam Nordwall, instigated an invasion of Alcatraz by American Indians. From the mainland, Fortunate Eagle orchestrated the events, but they assumed an uncontrollable life of their own. Fortunate Eagle provides an intimate memoir of the occupation and the events leading up to it. Accompanied by a variety of photographs capturing the people, places, and actions involved, Heart of the Rock brings these turbulent times vividly to life. From the start, public support was strong. Money poured in from around the country. Sausalito sailors and their "navy" transported supplies and people to the island. San Fransisco restaurants sent Thanksgiving dinner. A school was started; chores and responsibilities were shared by everyone. Alcatraz became home, and American Indians of all tribes became a family. But the occupation lasted two years, and Oakes, who had become it spokesman, left after his stepdaughter's death on the island. Memoranda from the White House recommended doing "anything" to turn the public against the occupation so it could be ended. Water and electricity were cut off, reports of conflict on the island began appearing in the press, and suspicious fires burned five buildings. Nevertheless, the occupation of Alcatraz remains what historian Vine Deloria, Jr. has called "perhaps the most significant Indian action since the Little Bighorn."

Classic Magnolia Rock is a history of original Mississippi Rock and Roll music from 1953 to 1970 andits impacton the national music scene. It is told through the eyes of the author and the artists who were a part of this history. The stories come from countless interviews with the artists and members of the various bands as they shared how they started and the things that happened to them as they traveled to and from the performances across the South. The author is hoping to help preserve this important part of the state's musical heritage. Many of the artists included in the book have had very successful careers in the music industry; yet, the general public only thinks of Elvis and Jerry Lee Lewis when Mississippi Rock and Roll is mentioned. A behind-the-scene look at this formative time is told through the music and pictures of the musicians. Insight into the social events of the day is also included as well as a brief look at the author's life during this time as he was experiencing rock and roll music for the first time as a teenager. The reader is invited to take a trip down memory lane to re-live the glory days of their teenage years and remember these old songs, singers, and musicians along with personal memories of what they were doing when this music waspopular. A companion CD of 22 songs of these artists is available from the author. This re-mastered release is a great way to celebrate the music and a wonderful addition to your collection.
