Growing Up Wisconsin: Remembrances from the American Midwest

by Fred G. Baker

When his father retires early, young Fred is forced to leave the ice cream shops, elevated trains, and bustling streets of suburban Chicago and move to a small farm in southwest Wisconsin.

There are snapping turtles to catch and farm animals to play with. But there is also work to be done. The old farmhouse has to be completely rebuilt. Dad’s vision of being a gentleman farmer involves having his two sons help with milking the cows, taking care of the chickens, fixing fences, and shoveling snow off the driveway in addition to attending school. And the Wisconsin summers are hot and humid, the winters long and bitterly cold.Th...

How many planes to get me?: Nine children adopted into a NZ family

by Jonquil Graham

Jonquil and Bryan Graham began with the idea of fostering a few New Zealand children; after all, they had an ideal home for them in a rambling old house in a kiwifruit orchard in Golden Bay. Shocked by the plight of thousands of abandoned children, she helped initiate I-CANZ (Inter-country Adoption New Zealand), challenging the government's anti-adoption stance. When harrowing scenes of abandoned Romanian babies rocking in cots appeared on TV, she flew to Romania and adopted malnourished identical twin girls who weighed 4 kgs at 10 months. Leaving her husband to run the orchard and care for eight children she returned to Romania to adopt a baby boy no-one wanted. But the ordeal turned into a prolonged nightmare as she battled the court system, determined to fight on and denying terrible ...

Prescription Drugs Also Kill

by D. L. Duran

“Prescription Drugs Also Kill” is the true story of one woman’s struggle to recover from a 20 year addiction to prescription drugs. Author, D.L. Duran’s addiction began after the birth of her second child in 1970, when unrelenting postpartum insomnia and anxiety prompted her to phone her OB/GYN physician and ask his advice on the matter. Over the telephone, he diagnosed her as depressed, referred her to a psychiatrist, and prescribed valium.

When her family...

CODENAME CHEROKEE: An excerpt from the bestselling memoir THE ATOMIC TIMES

by Michael Harris

CODENAME CHEROKEE
(A 1500 word excerpt from THE ATOMIC TIMES: My H-Bomb Year at the Pacific Proving Ground)

Cherokee was the second of 17 nuclear blasts in the 1956 United States H-bomb test series, Operation Redwing, conducted in the South Pacific. Cherokee was typical of what happened when over 1600 men (including me) became guinea pigs for the Department of Defense. The unstated motto at the Pentagon was:  Everything that CAN go wrong WILL go wrong.

And it did. Cherokee was a prime example. 

THE ATOMIC TIMES was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize by its original hardcover publisher, Random House.

"THE ATOMIC TIMES is a gripping memoir of the first H-bomb tests by one of the small groups of young servicemen stationed at Ground Zero ...
