Great Gift For A History Enthusiast
Gateway to the Clouds: The Story of a Short Line Railroad: The Scranton, Dunmore, Moosic Lake Railroad, 1902-1926
Description: This short book is big on historical information. Alan and Judy Sweeney have researched and intensely studied their topic. The photographs bring history to life. Salaries were $3-$1 per day. The Sweeneys include information concerning the death of workers, locomotives colliding. The title of this book comes from an advertisement that was used to entice vacationers to Moosic Lake. The train brought tourist and assisted in commercial growth of the area. The authors have well researched their topic. One of my favorite parts was the legend of the Twin Lakes. I well remember the passenger trains that rambled through our small town when I was growing up. I would wonder who they were and where they were going. A few years ago, I had the opportunity to ride a passenger train. Passengers could still see the elegance in the fade carpet and upholstery. The ride was extremely relaxing and took my husband and I back in time to days when we did not have the same hustle and bustle. The sound of the rails lulled us almost to sleep. Passenger Trains opened the door for travel to the west. A long hard journey by stagecoach or wagon train became easier and shorter by train. Gateway to the Clouds is an interesting look at how the Short Line Railroad came to Moosic Lake. Historians, citizens of Scranton, Dunmore, Moosic Lake,and train enthusiast will enjoy Gateway to the Clouds. Visit the Website Price: $30.00

High Heat: The Secret History of the Fast Ball and the Improbable Search for the Fastest Pitcher of All Time
Description: How can we possibly determine who is the fastest pitcher in history? Tim Wendel takes on this question in High Heat: The Secret History of the Fastball and the Improbable Search for the Fastest Pitcher of All Time.
Wendel digs white-gloved through the records of the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York; visits a lab in Birmingham, Alabama where he considers the fastball in its purely scientific form; travels to ballparks all over the country; and talks with numerous players‚ÄĒall in an effort to find that one arm, that one man, who can or could out-pitch the rest. But making that kind of determination is no easy task. As Wendel explains, even radar guns allow for a margin of error, and throughout history there have been so many players crowned with the title of ‚ÄúFastest Pitcher of All Time‚ÄĚ that it‚Äôs hard to separate fact from fiction.
Featuring interviews with Hall of Famers and baseball greats such as Frank Howard‚ÄĒand highlighting such pitching stars as Walter Johnson, Satchel Paige, Sandy Koufax, Nolan Ryan, Randy Johnson, Roger Clemens, and Jonathan Papelbon‚ÄĒHigh Heat contains more than just stats. It‚Äôs a fast-paced journey through the past and present of our national pastime, and a vivid reminder of why we love the game.
Tim Wendel is the author of six books, a founding editor of USA Today Baseball Weekly, and has written for Esquire and GQ magazines. He lives in Vienna, Virginia. Visit the Website Price: $25.00

How To Write And Publish A Successful Children‚Äôs Book: Everything You Need To Know Explained Simply
Learn how to survive in a "bunny-eat-bunny" world with this book from Atlantic Publishing Group
Description: Embark on a journey into a child‚Äôs imagination.
The Whole Language Approach, implemented in classrooms in the 1980s, is based upon the idea that children learn best when using all language skills at once: reading, listening, thinking, and writing. With this new idea, textbooks were soon replaced with books that molded young minds by establishing a connection. As a result, children were able to absorb more information.
Aside from establishing a connection with young readers, Executive Director Kristen McLean, of The Association of Booksellers for Children, says an author must be immersed in his or her work in order to write a truly unique piece that captures a child‚Äôs interest.
What impresses McLean, she says, is ‚Äúone of the following things: an amazing and honest voice; an off-beat premise; emotional authenticity; a timeless adventure; or unflinching love of a character on the part of an author, especially if the character is flawed.‚ÄĚ
Do you want to engage the minds of young readers and expand their horizons? At Atlantic, Publishing, we have a book for that.
