The Speedster and the Skunk: A True Story from my Dad's Youth
When my Dad was in high school in 1930, he traded his aging pony for an even-older car. From this 1912 Model T Ford touring car, he and his friends made an early hot rod called a speedster. Before the speedster had a windshield or a top, he drove it to a dance in Johnson City, Tenn. On the way back, a skunk blocked the way. Mistakes were made. As a boy, I asked for that story over and over. When I retired from small-town journalism, I wrote it ...

Kregel Publications, 1999
Examining thirteen of the most poignant questions Jesus asked, Carter draws practical lessons from the Gospels for today's Christians.
Potomac Books Inc., 2012
World War II naval history has been discussed and examined from almost every possible angle.

Death in the Tenderloin: A slice of life from the heart of San Francisco (Volume 1)
San Francisco Study Center
This book celebrates the Tenderloin at its most tender.
