From Moon Pies to magnolias and kudzu to catfish, ten diapered dynamos get into all kinds of down-home trouble. Children will love counting down, then up again, to the babies’ adventures, while adults will hoot at the hilarious rhymes.

Acutely aware of lifetimes of missed opportunities and mistakes, the characters in James Everett Kibler’s new novel unconsciously hold on to a persistent hope. Walking Toward Home presents snapshots of small-town people as they continue to care for the living while mourning the dead in ways that are not uniquely Southern, but universal in purpose. The magnetism of the local country store attracts a diverse group of neighbors who tell stories and impart wisdom that was earned the hard way. Hardcover.
The sobering and brutal consequences of the Civil War off the battlefield are revealed in this examination of atrocities committed against civilians. Rationale for the Union’s “hard war” and the political ramifications of such a war set the foundation for Walter Cisco’s enlightening research. Styled the “Black Flag” campaign, the hard line was agreed to by Lincoln in a council with his generals in 1864, when he gave permission to wage unlimited war against civilians, including women and children.

What does it mean to be “free?” Are you free if your life is directed with micromanagement from a far-off capitol?
Modern Americans are simply not as free as our forefathers were. In spite of the separation of powers established by the Constitution, many of our current laws are written by bureaucrats, administered by them, and finally judged by them—yet these laws are in opposition to those freedoms set forth by the founders of the United States!
