 Featured Authors:

 Joni Franks, who has a passion for mountain beauty and animals, owned a cattle ranch, raising both registered cattle and dogs.   Her books, Corky Tales: Tails of a Tailless Dog Named Sagebrush, are inspired by her Welsh corgi and by the trials and tribulations that women face in the harsh environment of the Rockies and in a line of work considered to be a man's world.

 Dr. Susan Levy, a distinguished chiropractor and alternative health practitioner with 30 years of experience in promoting the wellbeing of body, mind and spirit, has written Your Aging Body Can Talk:  Using Muscle-Testing to Learn What Your Body Knows and Needs After 50. She coins the word "Youthing" to describe a re-orienting of mind, purpose and activity toward optimum vibrancy and flexibility, leading to longevity.

 Bill Hatcher, author of The Marble Room: How I Lost God and Found Myself in Africa continues his personal exploration with Principles of Flight: Flying Bush Planes through a World of War, Sexism, and Meat. This is a memoir of grand adventure as well as a psychosocial inquiry into the hyper-masculinism that has dominated the world. The principles of flight force him to make a choice: to fly away or return to Earth to advocate that which has become important to him.

 Jane Koerner/Parnell's Off Trail: Finding My Way Home in the Colorado Rockies is an inspiring memoir about surmounting challenges, including the highest peaks in the Colorado Rockies, personal trauma, and constrictive gender roles. Parallels drawn between the perils of nature and the risks of human relationships are enlightening, and the adeptness with which she conveys her evolving approach to risk is stirring. (Foreword Review)
