'How did you let a black man take your job?' This is the question I've been asked more times than I care to admit. And despite its inherent prejudice, its misunderstanding of history, its naivet, I'm compelled to respond. My name is Ed Stevens. In baseball circles I was known as Big Ed Stevens, and I played first base for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1945, '46, and '47. I was the first man to be replaced by a black player in the history of Major League Baseball. This is a story about the Brooklyn Dodgers, and a secret I have kept for over fifty years. 'Ed Stevens was a good teammate and an even better friend. You will find his story very interesting. Ed found himself in a spot, and I think you will enjoy reading his account of what happened and his role in this historic transformation of baseball.' Tom Lasorda Special Advisor to the Chairman Los Angeles Dodgers Ed Stevens played first base for the Brooklyn Dodgers from 1945-1947. After that fateful '47 season, he was traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates, where he played from 1948-1950. After finishing out his career in Toronto, he served as a major league scout for twenty-nine years. Ed was later elected to the Brooklyn Dodger Hall of Fame, the International League Hall of Fame, and the Baton Rouge Louisiana Kids Clinic Hall of Fame, where he served for forty years as a baseball instructor along with Mel Ott, Dizzy Dean, Ted Williams, Stan Musial, and Mickey Mantle.

The women live peacefully as they prepare for the seasonal harvest and take in views of the breathtaking high mountains and pastures. Deeply rooted female relationships bloom and mature, as do their sustainable, ecologically friendly lifestyles. The Balti women have been living in the mountains for centuries, so why does there seem to be change in the air? There’s the war on terror, going on just outside their village.

I write this book in a social milieu where telecommunications can make a very private act globally public in a moment. A question I don’t consider is whether and to what extent the publicity attendant on a potential suicide inclines one toward or against the follow through. I suspect that it figures in, but what it amounts to in the end differs widely in each case. What I do have in mind is a rather full discussion and consideration of a host of questions I don’t hear being asked in the discussion of suicide today. In fact, I find the comments from most media talking heads to be either sincerely trite or politely banal. But then, one shouldn’t expect an in depth exploration of any side of the suicide question from the popular media. Where one should expect a more thorough investigation, however, is from the spokespeople representing our culture’s philosophical and theological traditions. What I hear most often has been said before, often in a context where the authoritative spokesmen for the Church issue blanket condemnations backed up by the written codes of civil law, canon law, moral law or natural law. Authorization for this outright condemnation of suicide, ipso facto, has always been backed up by law of some kind and its interpretation to the people in the pew or the public at large.

A wounded Stonewall Jackson has a chance to reflect on his life and finds himself in a spiritual battle, greater than the one on the battlefields outside his window. Robert D. Halpert’s historical novel is a thought-provoking journey into an era of America’s greatest civil upheaval and into the mind of one that era’s unique characters. It is a time when men and women are forced to decide between state and nation, family and cause, and the morality of a predicament that has plagued the nation from its inception. Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson emerges from the conflict as one of the great legends of American history. Gaining fame in both North and South, as well as across the world for his gifted military abilities, he wages a war a “civil war” within himself to subdue what he knows, if left unbridled, will destroy him. To the modern reader, he is generally considered an eccentric religious military genius. But the role of his spiritual life is often glossed over or ignored. In telling this story, the author has not neglected the dearly held and deep-rooted faith of the man, which in turn will hopefully help readers, and especially those for whom the Civil War is a compelling interest, to appreciate Lt. General Thomas “Stonewall “ Jackson in a different light. Within the context of historical fiction and making use of abundant research, the author attempts to draw a picture of a man of deep-rooted faith, at war with himself within a parallel breathtaking background of a nation at war with itself. It is time of agonizing national conflict and pain, with a resultant resolution for the nation and soaring spiritual resolution for the man.
