Andy Hall, a journalist and son of the park superintendent at the time, was living in the park when the tragedy occurred and spent years tracking down rescuers, survivors, lost documents, and recordings of radio communications.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From the author of "Celestial Sleuth" (2014), yet more mysteries in art, history, and literature are solved by calculating phases of the Moon, determining the positions of the planets and stars, and identifying celestial objects in paintings. In addition to helping to crack difficult cases, these studies spark our imagination and provide a better understanding of the skies. Weather archives, vintage maps, tides, historical letters and diaries, military records and the assistance of experts in related fields help with this work. For each historical event influenced by astronomy, there is a different kind of mystery to be solved. How did the changing tides affect an army's battle plans? How did the phases of the moon affect how an artist painted a landscape? Follow these exciting investigations with a master “celestial sleuth” as he tracks down the truth and helps unravel mysteries as far back as the Middle Ages and as recent as the iconic 1945 photograph of a kiss in Times Square on VJ Day. Topics or "cases" pursued were chosen for their wide public recognition and intrigue and involve artists such as Vincent van Gogh and Claude Monet; historical events such as the campaigns of Braveheart in Scotland and battles in World War II and the Korean War; and literary authors such as Chaucer, Cervantes, Shakespeare, Byron, and Edgar Allan Poe.

Book excerpt: In 1998, scientist, healer, and mystic Jude Currivan heard an inner message—a call to undertake a global quest that would transform her life and take her and her fellow travelers on an inner and outer odyssey that would ultimately reveal our hidden heritage and cosmic destiny. The initial intention of these journeys was to activate the healing energies of 12 ancient Lemurian artifacts around the earth to support the collective shift of awareness prophesied for 2012. But an even deeper purpose began to unfold. . . .The native elders of indigenous traditions around the world say that in these momentous times, "We are the ones we have been waiting for." As did the heroes of mythology, we are now about to embark on a spiritual quest to remember the wholeness of who we really are. The 12 activations and the opening of a galactic portal were completed during the December solstice of 2003, but in 2006 a further call heralded a 13th healing journey. As we approach 2012 and experience the birth pangs of a new age, this book shares an inspirational message of hope and reconciliation. It offers an empowering call for every one of us to embody our own divinity and fulfill our highest purpose as the heroes of this transformation.

Book excerpt: Most professionals believe a Bipolar I diagnosis precludes the stress of a litigation lawyer. Set in the "Golden Heart" of Fairbanks, Alaska, the book is one of faith, hope, adventure and perseverance against the daunting challenges of mental illness. In this book, Kenneth Lougee negotiates the conflicts between his Bipolar I diagnosis, his son's autism, and his adventures practicing law on the Last Frontier. As his disorder progresses, Lougee raises four small children, meets colorful Alaskans, travels to the backwoods of the state, wins multimillion dollar cases and grows prize winning giant cabbages. The book is shows the determination that mental illness does not define a person. This memoir is a guide to younger lawyers who may suffer depression or other mental illnesses. Not only can they anticipate a professional life, they can if willing, have successful marriages, raise responsible children and gain the respect of the community. Additionally the book gives hope to parents of autistic children that even if one parent suffers mental illness, together parents can surmount the difficulties of raising that child. Alaskans call the mountain Denali meaning "the Great One." A grateful author is indeed "Denali's Fortunate Son."

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The Alaska Range is a cordillera that arcs across Alaska, dividing the coastal lowlands around Cook Inlet from the Yukon lowlands of interior Alaska. The range is about 60 miles wide near Denali and home to twenty peaks taller than 10,000 feet. #2 When prospector Frank Densmore visited Lake Minchumina in 1889, the big mountain rising to the south so enthralled him that he couldn’t stop talking about it. For the next twenty years, virtually all travel to the region was for exploration and mountaineering. #3 The north face of Denali is named the Wickersham Wall, a 3-mile-wide precipice that sweeps skyward for 14,000 feet from the Peters Glacier to the summit of the north peak. It was named for Wickersham, who never made the summit, but ended his quest at an elevation of about 8,000 feet on the wall. #4 In 1912, four Kantishna miners, incensed at Cook’s deception and fueled by a barroom bet, set out for the summit. The Sourdough Expedition spent three months approaching the mountain by dogsled and ascending via the Muldrow Glacier. They reached the top and spent two and a half hours on the north summit taking in the view and planting a fourteen-foot spruce pole in a location they thought could be seen in Fairbanks, 150 miles away.
