Snow, wind and frigid temperatures devastated parts of Wyoming and neighboring states in 1949. For nearly two months, towns and ranches were marooned by enormous drifts, some reportedly eighty feet tall. The storm stranded hundreds of motorists on the highways and stalled nearly two dozen trains at depots throughout the state. Communities pulled together to assist not only their neighbors but also anyone unable to escape the snowstorm. The deaths of motorists and livestock weighed heavily on the minds of Americans as news spread nationwide. Author and historian James Fuller recounts these harrowing stories of tenacity and fortitude.

The small and midsized cities of western Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia reached their peaks of population and prosperity in the second quarter of the 20th century. The baseball teams from these towns formed the Middle Atlantic League, the strongest circuit in the low minors and the one with the most alumni to advance to the majors. The MAL played from 1925 through 1951 and went through three distinct phases. In the pre-Depression years, communities rallied around the home team, which always stood one step from financial disaster. During the Great Depression, the league flourished as president Elmer Daily magically found investors and night baseball boosted working class attendance. Middle Atlantic League clubs enjoyed a modicum of financial stability and an infusion of outstanding young players and became talent farms for major league teams. During this period Akron, Dayton, Canton, Springfield, Portsmouth and Zanesville, Ohio became the core cities of the league's strongest era. Following World War II, America and baseball experienced seismic cultural and economic shifts with the advent of television, the baby boom, suburban growth and changing family values, which overwhelmed the league and its cities.

Nothing Gold Can Stay is a richly described reminiscence of childhood on an extended family farm in the late 1940s and in the 1950s. It is written in a beautifully lyrical style and told with disarming honesty. A unique history of one unforgettable place in time, it details a distinct way of life in an America that no longer exists. Thanks to author Gloria June Reed’s clarity of memory to the smallest of details, Nothing Gold Can Stay will gift you with accounts of: • the fortitude and hardships of immigration as both sets of Reed’s grandparents leave the Volga Valley in Russia and emigrate to America; • family strength and courage during World War II; • surviving the Great Blizzard of 1949; • the freedom to be a child and explore the wonder and fascination of the natural world; • the adventures and pranks of farm children in the long, golden summer days; • memories of a unique country school; • the significance of both past and place in forging a life. The stories within Nothing Gold Can Stay are of America’s golden age, when family and faith were strong, Judeo-Christian values and patriotism flourished, and America was both a manufacturing capital and a beacon of freedom for the world. It was a refreshingly innocent time. But nothing ever stays the same, and eventually the farm and its way of life are destroyed by affluence, greed, demographics, changing values, and the resultant assault of swift changes in the world. This history of a bygone era and the people in it will engage and delight you. The richness of life on this farm will endure in your memory. You’ll finish the book with the satisfaction of having read something of value that needed to be told.

On July 1, 1862, President Lincoln signed the Pacific Railway Act. This act created the Union Pacific Railroad and authorized government loans and land grants to aid in the construction of the nation’s first transcontinental railroad, which would connect Omaha, Nebraska, to Sacramento, California. As the Union Pacific raced west across prairies, mountains, and basins in 1867 and 1868, the Territory of Wyoming and many of its southern towns and cities were founded, including Laramie. In 1869, the Union Pacific met the Central Pacific at Promontory Summit, Utah, and the transcontinental railroad was complete. This is the story of the railroads of Laramie, a fabled place along the Union Pacific’s Overland Route.
