Kunerth pbk cover finalTrout: A True Story of Murder, Teens, and the Death Penalty

by Jeff Kunerth

“A fascinating and volatile topic.”—Publishers Weekly

“Tracks the downward journey of three adolescents involved in the 1991 robbery of a Trout Auto Parts store in Pensacola, FL, during which a clerk named Billy Wayne Coker was shot and killed. . . .

Forever_Young_RGBForever Young: A Life of Adventure in Air and Space

by John W. Young with James R. Hansen

Foreword by Michael Collins

“Packed with minute technical detail that space enthusiasts will devour, Young’s story also reveals [the] personal side of the program. . . .There are also tales of pranks, mishaps, and corned beef in space. At 82, Young hasn’t lost his enthusiasm for space exploration, one that he communicates on every page.” – Publishers Weekly

“A fascinating life.”—Space Review

“For those fortunate enough to remember an America fully caught up in the race to the Moon, for those whose memories of the Space Shuttle are already dimming, and for all those in between with even the slightest passion for science, aviation, or spaceflight, this book provides a fascinating walk through time, from a captivating past to an uncertain future. To paraphrase the rock band Rush, Forever Young provides story after story of a life filled with magic days when super-science mingled with the bright stuff of dreams.” – Quest: A History of Spaceflight Quarterly
