Plymouth from the Author: Brian Vincent Hill. "As the home to Native American encounters, rugged pioneers, governors, state legislators, founders of political parties, landmark legal decisions, multimillionaires, scandals, patents, and the largest international business of its kind, Plymouth has certainly received its 15 minutes of fame. Yet most citizens of Plymouth today only know it as a wonderful community full of parks, subdivisions, and a quaint Norman Rockwell-like downtown"--P. [4] of cover.

Legendary Locals Of Plymouth from the Author: Leis Dauzet-Miller. Plymouth, a charming town 40 miles west of Detroit, is rich with history and interesting people. Though the community has undergone many changes and much growth throughout the years, it maintains a small, stylish downtown feel. Much of that can be attributed to the town's residents--dedicated folks who take pride in their community and aim to make it stronger and better, year after year. The Houghs helped put Plymouth on the map when they mass-produced the Daisy BB gun, employing hundreds of residents; Debra Madonna is a promoter of arts and education who is devoted to children with special needs; Phoebe Patterson helped pave the way for women's rights; Margaret Dunning's generosity and vision have provided special buildings for education; and museum volunteer Sanford Burr, whose family history runs deep in Plymouth, loves sharing the community's heritage. Whether through industry, education, volunteer work, the arts, or philanthropy, the people in Legendary Locals of Plymouth saw a need and acted on it, helping make Plymouth what it is today.

Downtown Ann Arbor from the Author: Patti Smith. In 1824, John Allen and Elisha Rumsey established the first homestead in what is now downtown Ann Arbor. The story goes that the community got its name when the two founders’ wives, both named Ann, were seen lounging in a grove of trees. In reality, Ann Allen and Mary Ann Rumsey were never in town at the same time, but how it actually was named is unimportant when considering what Ann Arbor grew into. Early settlers gave the town schools, an expansive courthouse, a beautiful post office, and streetcar lines that spanned downtown. They built this town, and their legacy is present in every walk up Huron Street, drive down to William and Main Streets, or bike ride over to Kerrytown.

Waterland from the Author: Graham Swift. Set in the bleak Fen Country of East Anglia, and spanning some 240 years in the lives of its haunted narrator and his ancestors, Waterland is a book that takes in eels and incest, ale-making and madness, the heartless sweep of history and a family romance as tormented as any in Greek tragedy. "Waterland, like the Hardy novels, carries with all else a profound knowledge of a people, a place, and their interweaving.... Swift tells his tale with wonderful contemporary verve and verbal felicity.... A fine and original work."--Los Angeles Times

Kill The Boomers from the Author: Herb Boyce. Medicare and Social Security are in trouble, and no one can agree on how to fund it, manage it, or control it. That’s what certain elements within the United States government want people to believe. But in the secret back rooms of power, a diabolical plan has been hatched. These hushed negotiations propose a true fix to the Medicare and Social Security cash crunch: kill thirty million baby boomers. Their plan is all the more insidious for its methodology; the deaths will be masked as the unfortunate cost of a terrible act of nature. In Project Bluebird, the CIA developed a man-made avian flu to be used against terrorist cells plotting attacks against the United States. Once it was ready for use, however, the government deemed it too draconian, and the entire project was buried. Now, years later, Project Bluebird has been reborn and repurposed. The powerful and ambitious sociopath behind the plan, White House Chief of Staff Carrington B. Massengale III, intends to use it to rid the US of baby boomers while catapulting himself into highest office in the land. Much to his consternation, Cynthia Wood, the nation’s first female president, stands firmly in his way. Only two men outside this inner circle know of the plot, and now they are running for their lives. They must do everything they can to stay ahead of the government assassins and share the evidence before it’s too late.
