North America was divided.  The French and British battled over land and trade.  Men judged and condemned others based on religion, race, and nationality.  Yet, many brave individuals headed west in hopes of making their fortune in the fur trade.  One such man was Paul L’Archevéque.  Determined to succeed in the French fur trade, he abandoned the comforts of home for the wild frontier.  His life was often interrupted by hardship and tragedy.  Difficult sacrifices were made for the sake of survival.  Still, Paul L’Archevéque remained a true frontiersman who led his life through his own daring and rugged individualism.  L’Archevéque is a compelling novel based on a true story.  Paul L’Archevéque was a real person and much of this book is based on real events from history.

For generations of children, including a young Oprah Winfrey, opening a Lois Lenski book has meant opening a world.  This was just what the author wanted: to help children “see beyond the rim of their own world.” 

In Lois Lenski: Storycatcher, historian and educator Bobbie Malone takes us into Lenski’s own world to tell the story of how a girl from a small Ohio town became a beloved literary icon.

Author and illustrator of the Newbery Award-winning Strawberry Girl and numerous other tales of children from America’s diverse regions and cultures, Lenski spent five decades creating stories for young readers.  Lois Lenski: Storycatcher follows her development as a writer and as an artist, and it traces the evolution of her passionate belief in the power of empathy conveyed in children’s books.  Understanding that youngsters responded instinctively to narratives rich in reality, Lenski turned her extensive study of hardworking families into books that accurately and movingly depicted the lives of the children of a sharecroppers, coal miners, and migrant field workers.  Linski’s books mirrored the cultural energy and concerns of the times.

This first full-length biography tells how Lenski traveled throughout the country, gathering the stories that brought the life in words and pictures whole worlds that had for so long been invisible in children’s literature.  In the process, her work became a source of delight, inspiration, and insight for generations of readers.

In 2013, Albert Dickas published Passages, An Anthology of Shelby County History, a compilation of fifty articles that he had written over a ten-year period for Historical Highlights, the newsletter published by the Shelby County (Ohio) Historical Society.  In updating and preparing his articles for that book, Dickas realized that there were other stories, as yet unwritten, that would serve to create a more accurate and comprehensive narrative of the history of Sidney and Shelby County.

Another year of research and writing has resulted in this volume, a companion to the first that both enhances the information in the original volume and introduces entirely new subjects.

While the volumes stand alone, they are complementary in the best sense of that word.  The author is quick to point out that in more than one case, it is the interest of a reader, or a story he or she may have shared that has provided impetus for this work.

Dickas’ childhood in Sidney, his professional career as a geophysicist and university professor and his abiding interests in history together create the nexus of enthusiasm from which this work springs.

In November 2001, Albert Dickas received his first issue of Historical Highlights, the newsletter published by the Shelby County (Ohio) Historical Society. To his surprise, he found inside a story on I. H. Thedieck, a name he knew quite well, for two reasons. First, having been a lifelong student of history and also a native of Shelby County, he was quite familiar with the contributions Mr. Thedieck had made to the local community. Second, sitting on a shelf next to his desk as he read was a shaving mug he had inherited, and on it was Mr. Thedieck’s name -- a testimony both to the gentleman’s position in Sidney and to the profession of Dickas’ forbears as prominent owners of local barber shops.

Aware that the mug might be of interest to other local historians, Dickas called the newsletter editor, who encouraged him to write his own account of the mug and its owner. A dozen years and 50 stories followed.

This book is a compilation of those stories, each of which relates to the years Dickas spent growing up in Shelby County, and at the same time captures his other interests as a professional geophysicist, an enthusiastic historian, and an admirer of community leaders, and a natural story teller.

Rocks racing across a lakebed in Death Valley.  Perfectly preserved 36-million-year-old tsetse flies in Colorado.  Dinosaur track-ways cemented into ancient floodplains in Connecticut.  A gaping rift in the Idaho desert.  What do these enigmatic geologic phenomena have in common?  Besides initiating a profusion of head-scratching over the years, these sites of geologic wonder appear side by side, for the first time, in a single publication.

              Examining in detail at least one amazing site for all fifty states, Albert Dickas clearly explains the geologic forced behind each one’s origin in 101 American Geo-Sites You’ve Gotta See.  Dickas discusses not only iconic landforms such as Devil’s Tower in Wyoming but also locals that are often overlooked yet have fascinating stories.   Consider the Reel-foot scarp in Tennessee: to the casual observer it is nothing more than a slight rise in a farm field.  Yet this subtle slope represents a rift formed during an 1812 earthquake that forced the mighty Mississippi to flow upstream.  Or Louisiana’s unassuming, low-lying Avery Island, which actually caps an 8.5-mile-high column of salt.  Amply illustrated with full-color photographs and illustrations and written in clear yet playful prose, 101 American Geo-Sites You’ve Gotta See will entertain and inform amateur and seasoned geology buffs whether from an armchair or in the field.

Ohio Rocks!: A Guide to Geologic Sites in the Buckeye State


Ohio was born billions of years ago, during a time when ancient mini-continents crystallized and merged into larger continents.  Its youth was marked by the coming and going of oceans and the advent of life.  The Buckeye State matured when ice sheets scoured its landscape.  This storyline is writ large and small in Ohio’s rocks, from its flat till plains to the rumpled and hollowed landscape of the Appalachian Plateau.

In Ohio Rocks!, skilled writer and geologist Albert Dickas takes you to some of the state’s most interesting geologic chapters.  At Blackhand Gorge the sandy deposits of ancient sea where cut and sculpted by glacial melt-water.  In Scioto County you can trace the margins of a ghost river.  And you can visit the historic Buckeye Furnace, which produced enough pig iron to make Ohio an industrial giant.  Ohio Rocks! is the third book in the state-by-state Geology Rocks! series, which introduces readers to some of the most compelling and accessible geologic sites in each state.

This soft-bound book contains 133 pages.

Civil War Women: They Made a Difference

Civil War Women


By: Cynthia Vogel

In the popularity of the Civil War, historical focus has been upon the battles, military strategy and its outcome.  This book explores a critical social turning point for American Women at the time.  This book explores 78 women who played a critical role in the anti-slavery movement, the underground railroad, education, medicine, nursing and various roles in the military and on the battle fields.  They were black and white, rich and poor, but their beliefs and commitment made a difference.  At no other time in American history were women’s lives so dramatically changed as during the Civil War.  Women primarily out of necessity, became more independent, self-sufficient, and confident in their abilities and their role in American society.

This book reveals many of those women and how they played an enormous part in the social change.  With the men leaving their homes to volunteer for the cause, the women were left behind to carry out the men’s duties on the home front.  Others stepped forward in leading social reformation roles.  They were determined, defiant, and focused on issues that had plagued a young nation since its founding.

Heart of a Warrior
The True Saga of Sweet Breeze and William Wells

Heart of a Warrier - The True Saga of Sweet Breeze and William Wells


By: Joe Krom

In “Heart of a Warrior” you will experience the frontier from the viewpoint of Sweet Breeze, the daughter of the acclaimed Miami Chief Little Turtle, and her husband William Wells.  Known as Wild Carrot, William was raised in tribal villages after having been taken captive during his youth.  You will follow his adventures as a Miami warrior, as a piece negotiator, as a scout for General Anthony Wayne, and finally as a government agent.  Sweet Breeze and William are thrust into every significant event of the frontier.  They ply the rivers of the Northwest Territory seeking their destiny.

You will witness LaBalme’s Defeat, Harmar’s Defeat, Wilkinson’s Raid on Eel Town, St. Clair’s Defeat, the Battle of Fort Recovery, the Battle of Fallen Timbers, the Battle of Tippecanoe, the Fort Dearborn Massacre, the sieges of Fort Wayne and Fort Harrison, expeditions against Turtle Town and Elkhart villages, and the Battle of the Mississinewa.  You will sit on a war and peace councils of the Miami, Shawnee, Deleware, Pottawatomie, and their allies.  You will attend Rufus Putnam’s Vincennes Treaty of 1792, Wayne’s Trety of Greenville, and William Henry Harrison’s several treaties including Fort Wayne 1803 and Grouseland 1805.

A clash of two cultures confronts Sweet Breeze and William Wells with choices to be made, sometimes enthusiastically, sometimes reluctantly.  Together they embody the Miami tribe’s resistance to American’s pressing upon their lands.

The Odyssey of the Blue Swan
The Odyssey of the Blue Swan


By: Alwyn A. Carder

The setting for this anthology of many stories is along the towpaths of the Miami and Erie Canal in western Ohio near the Indiana border in general, but the New Bremen, “Old Brementown,” in particular.  The beautiful Blue Swan packed show barge from the canals of Europe was the property of the unusual Gast family whose forebears had come to Western Ohio from Alsace near old Strasbourg.  The Swan barge changed the lives of many of the staid and conservative local towpath people in Brementown, but it definitely changed the loves of the Gast and Kattmann families and nearly all the people its voyages touched.
