BREAKDOWN
How the Secret of the Atomic Bomb was Stolen
By Richard Melzer, Ph.D.

SEE "PRAISE FOR THIS BOOK" BELOW.

Order from Sunstone: (800) 243-5644

The enormous effort--called the Manhattan Project--that produced the world's first atomic bomb was supposed to be the best kept secret of World War II. And the project's Los Alamos, New Mexico site, where the bomb was perfected, was supposed to have the tightest security of the project's other 37 installations across the United States. Even the vice president, Harry S. Truman, was kept in the dark initially until fate propelled him into the fray.

But this was an illusion. Evidence from Soviet and American sources have proven that at least three--and as many as six--Communist spies penetrated the security system at Los Alamos and shared the secret of the atomic bomb with the Stalin regime in the Soviet Union before the end of World War II.

Historian Richard Melzer now sheds new light on how security at Los Alamos broke down--not by examining this isolated site in New Mexico from the outside as many other authors have--but from within Los Alamos itself. Using interviews, memoirs, and formerly confidential files, Melzer shows that spies quite easily obtained security clearances, gained access to top secret information, and carried this information to their Soviet contacts without a hitch.

What Melzer tells us about the flaws of security in the past might well help those in charge of security today as the United States grapples with these problems in the aftermath of the Chinese espionage scandal that rocked Los Alamos and the entire American intelligence community. Includes a bibliography, historic photographs, and index.

BOOK NEWS reports: "A good survey of Los Alamos security and its many breaches."

NEW MEXICO HISTORICAL REVIEW said: "Anyone interested in the history of the atomic bomb will gain much from Melzer's fine treatment of the failure of wartime security and the loss of atomic secrets. This is a highly readable and recommended book."

RICHARD MELZER is a professor of history at the University of New Mexico-Valencia Campus. A specialist in twentieth century New Mexico history, he has written many articles, chapters, and books about the American Southwest. He is a prize-winning author and a popular public speaker. Sunstone Press is also the publisher of Melzer's focused biography, ERNIE PYLE IN THE AMERICAN SOUTHWEST and WHEN WE WERE YOUNG IN THE WEST, TRUE HISTORIES OF CHILDHOOD.

CITY BOY
Urban Planning, Municipal Politics, and Guerrilla Warfare
By Mike Tedesco

“This is a story that too many practicing planners will recognize, and many who seek to become planners should come to understand before entering the profession.” —Kirk McClure, Professor Graduate Program in Urban Planning, University of Kansas

“Mike Tedesco might well be the ghost of gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson returned to tell us what the life of a planner is really like, painting pictures embedded in a real-world reality that is too often ignored, or sanitized in academic planning textbooks. This book should be required reading in all planning schools. Don’t wait for the movie. Read it now!” —Gundars Rudzitis, Professor of Geography, Environmental Science, and American Studies; Adjunct Professor of Philosophy Department of Geography, University of Idaho

Order from Sunstone: (800) 243-5644

In the world of municipal politics, truth is stranger than fiction and there is no truth stranger than La Blanca Gente, Colorado. In this striking first book, the author weaves between the anecdotal and the academic to sew a grand comic farce as he unveils the curtain over the tactics employed by government employees to achieve their own ends. Tragic? Absurd? Harrowing? Indeed, and City Boy serves as a lesson on what not to do when confronted by those who are just dumb enough to take you down. Throw your Urban Planning and Public Administration text books out the window because in the world of municipal politics you better be ready for a street fight.

Mike Tedesco currently serves as the Executive Director for the Urban Renewal Authority of Pueblo. He has helped to establish and implement nearly $330 million in public/private economic development partnerships. He serves on the Board of Directors of Downtown Colorado, Inc., and several local organizations. Mike graduated from the University of Kansas with a Masters of Urban Planning degree in 2005. He lives in Pueblo, Colorado, with his wife and two children.

CORROBORATING EVIDENCE V
A True Crime Story in a Newly Expanded Edition
By William T. Rasmussen

In Corroborating Evidence V, William Rasmussen, author of four previous true-crime books, continues his investigation into famous, unsolved criminal cases by focusing on three separate, unrelated stories.

Order from Sunstone: (800) 243-5644

In Corroborating Evidence V, William Rasmussen, author of four previous true-crime books, continues his investigation into famous, unsolved criminal cases by focusing on three separate, unrelated stories.

The first zeroes in on the Cleveland Torso Murders committed between 1934 and 1938, where someone killed and expertly dismembered at least twelve victims in Cleveland, Ohio. In 1938, a letter by someone claiming to be the Torso Killer was mailed from Los Angeles to Cleveland’s Chief of Police Matowitz. Approximately eight years later on January 7, 1946, six-year-old Suzanne Degnan was killed and expertly dismembered in Chicago. A seventeen-year-old by the name of William Heirens eventually pled guilty to the Degnan murder and two other murders. In July, 1946, Elizabeth Short (the Black Dahlia) was in Chicago “terribly preoccupied with the details of the Degnan murder.” Less than six months later the Black Dahlia was killed and expertly severed in Los Angeles. Was the Cleveland Torso Killer also responsible for the murders of Suzanne Degnan and the Black Dahlia? If so, then William Heirens was wrongly incarcerated for crimes he did not commit.

The second investigation turns the spotlight on the Zodiac Killer, who was responsible for at least six murders in California between 1966 and 1969. On October 30, 1966, eighteen-year-old Cheri Jo Bates was brutally murdered in Riverside, California. On December 20, 1968, sixteen-year-old Betty Lou Jensen and seventeen-year-old David Arthur Faraday were killed near Vallejo, north of San Francisco. Someone who identified himself as the “Zodiac” claimed to be the killer. He sent taunting letters, notes, greeting cards, codes, secret messages and hidden clues to newspapers and the police, and the killings continued. To this day the identity and location of the Zodiac remain unknown. The author says, “I think there is a high probability that the Zodiac is still alive and currently incarcerated for some other crime.” Rasmussen identifies possible links between the murders of Valerie Percy on September 18, 1966, in Kenilworth, Illinois and the Richard Robison Family in Good Hart, Michigan, June, 1968. Rasmussen presents compelling evidence that may connect the Zodiac Killer to these murders. In this book Rasmussen continues the investigation by comparing the Zodiac Killer and Charles F. Albright, a convicted serial killer currently incarcerated in Amarillo, Texas, known as the “Eyeball Killer.” Albright was a neighbor of Lee Harvey Oswald in 1963, when Oswald rented a room from Gladys Johnson at 1026 North Beckley Avenue, in Oak Cliff, Texas. The author questions whether Albright knew Oswald in 1963, before Oswald was killed by Jack Ruby.

The third investigation focuses on the brutal, unsolved murder of little JonBenet Ramsey. Rasmussen suggests that two theories should be further explored by cold case detectives. It might lead to the missing piece of corroborating evidence that helps solve this case.

The fascinating and highly documented information contained in this new illustrated book could well be a significant development in the Zodiac case as well as the Torso Murders of the 1930s and the JonBenet Ramsey case.

WILLIAM T. RASMUSSEN, attorney at law, was born and raised in northern Michigan. He graduated from Central Michigan University and the Detroit College of Law. After graduating from law school, he attended George Washington University in Washington, DC.

COWBOY IN THE ROUNDHOUSE
The Political Life of Governor Bruce King
By Bruce King as told to Charles Poling

Order from Sunstone: (800) 243-5644

Bruce King towered over the political landscape of New Mexico in the last half of the twentieth century. Born the son of a homesteader in the tiny Santa Fe County farm-and-ranch community of Stanley, King decided in seventh grade to be governor of New Mexico. The story of how he accomplished that goal—three times!—plays out against the tremendous transformations occurring in the society, culture, politics, and business of New Mexico since World War II. When King won his first Santa Fe County Commission seat in 1954 at age 29, running for office was a down-home affair. Politics was personal. But as he served in office and climbed the political ladder toward his lifelong ambition, New Mexico changed. The state’s population shifted away from the rural communities to the rapidly expanding cities, while the once-dominant agricultural interests in the legislature yielded to the emerging urban voting blocs. Meanwhile, the challenges of governing grew ever more complex. King’s well-recognized skills of mediation and conciliation helped him lead the state through a time of often-bewildering change. This book is rich with colorful stories as King recalls the major events of his career and conveys the human side of campaigning, governing, political deal-making, and sparring with the press. He also talks about his friendships and encounters with many of the leading national and state political figures of our time, including President Bill Clinton, President Ronald Reagan, President Jimmy Carter, Senator Pete Domenici, and then Energy Secretary Bill Richardson. A classic tale of political intuitions spiced by New Mexico flavor as unique as Hatch green chile, Cowboy in the Roundhouse is lively reading. As famed mystery writer Tony Hillerman writes in his introduction to the book, “While I count myself among the many who wanted Bruce King to write an autobiography, I doubt if any of us had much hope he’d get around to doing it. Now he has and it’s even better than we’d expected.”

Charles Poling is a journalist and author who could not remember a time when Bruce King was not governor. Poling writes fiction and true stories about the history, business, politics and daily life of New Mexico. He currently makes his home in Placitas, where the past, present, and future blend together and resonate with the peculiar harmony and dissonance known as New Mexico.

CRIMINAL OR NOT
What Is Your Verdict?
By Samuel A. Francis

"There is no question that Mr. Francis has captured the true spirit of the very difficult question of who should be prosecuted and who shouldn't be. I believe the stories would make excellent reading for young people interested in the criminal justice system as a way of gaining insight to the difficulties involved in many factual situations." (DAVID CHESNOFF, one of the top ten criminal lawyers in the United States.)

Order from Sunstone: (800) 243-5644

Did you know that if you run your car into someone when you are on your cellular phone and someone is injured you can be prosecuted? And, if you give a beer to your minor son in your own home, you can be prosecuted in most states for contributing to the delinquency of a minor? The prison term for that, if you’re convicted, can be from two to five years.

These are just two examples out of ten in this book that focuses on an epidemic that is occurring in the criminal justice system of the United States. Simple acts of carelessness or negligence are now being classified as criminal acts. Many of these acts have been outside the criminal arena for years. And most American citizens are unaware of the consequences.

This concise book will increase your awareness of this epidemic. Read the facts about each case and decide: What is your verdict?

SAMUEL A. FRANCIS received his Bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of New Mexico in 1963. He then earned his Juris Doctor degree from the University of New Mexico Law School in 1966. His first book, GOOD BEHAVIOUR, was also published by Sunstone Press.

CRISIS GAME
A Novel of the Cold War
By Craig Eisendrath

"A FLAT-OUR ROCKET RIDE..."

Order from Sunstone: (800) 243-5644

They once had power--all four of them--and they enjoyed it. Now, in the heat of the Vietnam conflict, they're on the fringes of government, relegated to participating in a war game, trying out moves that mimic reality rather than making policy. Yet, they tell themselves, this game is important. It will help the government avoid a false step that could launch nuclear terror.

The crisis they must deal with is a Chinese Communist thrust into Thailand and a Soviet attempt to take over Iran. But the four players-a former assistant secretary of state and Strategic Air Command pilot, a former effete ambassador, a philandering law professor, and a corrupt former U.S. senator-desperately want this game to be real, and they play it as if it were.

Soon they're obsessed, as their wives begin to realize. Each move becomes a personal commitment, not just an exercise. Reality and game-playing blur. Before long, these four members of the State Department team are deep in conflict with a more aggressive team from the Defense Department. As they continue to explore their strategies, they reveal their deepest secrets and ambitions, and in the end they have to face the fact that they are real human beings--not just players in a game.

CRAIG EISENDRATH served as a U.S. Foreign Service Officer with the Department of State, working in the area of outer space and nuclear disarmament. With a Ph.D. from Harvard University, he became a college dean and then head of the state humanities council in Pennsylvania. Today, he is a senior fellow at the Center for International Policy, a Washington, D.C. think tank, and the author of several books on international affairs, including The Phantom Defense: America's Pursuit of the Star Wars Illusion. Eisendrath also writes plays, most recently The Angel of History, which tells the dramatic story of a resistance fighter against the Nazis and her heroic attempt to rescue a famous philosopher.

PRAISE FOR CRISIS GAME:

Steve Zettler, author of The Second Man and Double Identity says: "Crisis Game is a flat-out rocket ride; giving new and intensified meaning to both crisis and game. When does the crisis end and the game begin? More crucial, when does the game end and the crisis begin? Eisendrath's style is thoroughly engrossing. Characters seemingly leap from the pages, struggling to match wits and backbone with the best and the brightest; but unable, or more likely, unwilling to escape from either the game or the crisis they have created. How cold was the Cold War...? You're about to find out."

Cordelia Frances Biddle, author of Beneath the Wind reports: "Craig Eisendrath shows us insider Washington in a dangerously isolationist mode where global politics become 'games' enacted by players with nothing to lose. Reading Eisendrath's tale of the Cold War, one wonders what lessons--if any--our present leaders have learned."

CRITICAL EVIDENCE
A Courtroom Suspense Novel
By Laurance L. Priddy

"With high-energy courtroom scenes and plenty of cunning legal manipulations, Priddy shows that you don't have to be a high-profile author (Grisham, Turow, et a.) to write a high-quality legal thriller." (BOOKLIST)

"Lawyer and mystery scribe Laurance L. Priddy crafts an unlikely hero in hotheaded and near-broke personal injury lawyer Jim McSpadden, who, out of desperation, takes a case no one else wants proving that a mechanical defect rather than human error caused a deadly highway accident. Working for the widow of the man the trucking company says is responsible, Jim finds himself playing spy, sparring with a bigger lawyer and fallinG love in "Critical Evidence." (PUBLISHERS WEEKLY)

Order from Sunstone: (800) 243-5644

When a tanker truck crashes and explodes, down-at-the-heels lawyer Jim McSpadden hopes to represent some of the victims, but big-time attorney Rolly Sullivan gets to them first. The only client Jim can muster is Laura, widow of Danny Marcus, the truck driver whose drunken driving allegedly caused the accident. As Jim struggles to prove that a defect in the truck steering made Danny lose control, trial tactics lock Jim and Rolly in an unwelcome relationship: if one wins, the other loses, yet they must cooperate on common problems of proof. Jim's accumulation of evidence through industrial espionage provokes a violent response, escalating the game to a lethal level. Now, it's not just a matter of win or lose. His life is part of the stakes.

LAURANCE L. PRIDDY, author of the critically acclaimed WINNING PASSION and SON OF DURANGO both published by Sunstone Press, was born in Sweetwater, Texas. He grew up in Gainsville and Fort Worth, Texas and graduated from Arlington State College and from the University of Texas School of law. After two years in the army, he entered the practice of law in Fort Worth where he practices today.

BOOKLIST called WINNING PASSION "an excellent read" while PUBLISHERS WEEKLY commented that it had "an easy authenticity."

DOUGHNUT DOLLIES
American Red Cross Girls During World War II
By Helen L. Airy

Order from Sunstone: (800) 243-5644

American service men in England during World War II called American Red Cross girls “Doughnut Dollies.” It was a warm and affectionate term designed to show the soldiers’ appreciation for the morale-building efforts of the American Red Cross. The Red Cross girls operated “clubmobiles” which were driven to air bases where the girls served fresh doughnuts, hot coffee, and broadcast Big Band music over loud-speakers to welcome airmen as they returned from missions overseas. Red Cross girls also helped establish and operate recreation clubs wherever American service men were stationed. In London, fourteen American Red Cross clubs furnished entertainment, meals, snacks and maintained dormitories for soldiers on leave. This novel is the story of two Red Cross Aero Club directors stationed on air fields where they were instructed to establish recreation clubs. It is a story of their accomplishments, frustrations, romances, and the tragedies they witnessed and experienced.

Helen Airy was raised on a cattle ranch in Northern California. After graduation from the University of California at Berkeley, she was employed for several years as a columnist on the San Francisco Examiner. At the outbreak of World War II, her restless ways led her to join the American Red Cross personnel in war-time England. Airy served in England in various capacities where she gained an understanding of the tragedy of war. She saw courageous young men lose their lives and witnessed the grief their loss left behind. She came to admire and appreciate the stiff upper-lip courage and the generosity of the English people who opened their doors and their hearts, and shared their meagre provisions with the American and other forces that flooded their country. Airy has always been proud to be called a “Doughnut Dolly.”

ETERNITY AT THE END OF A ROPE
Executions, Lynchings and Vigilante Justice in Texas, 1819–1923
By Clifford R. Caldwell and Ron DeLord

See PRAISE FOR THIS BOOK below.

Order from Sunstone: (800) 243-5644

Since 1819 over 3,000 souls found their personal “eternity at the end of a rope” in Texas. Some earned their way. Others were the victim of mistaken identity, or an act of vigilante justice. Deserved or not, when the hangman’s knot is pulled up tight and the black cap snugged down over your head it is too late to plead your case.

This remarkable story begins in 1819 with the first legal hanging in Texas. By 1835 accounts of lynching dotted the records. Although by 1923 legal execution by hanging was discontinued in favor of the electric chair, vigilante justice remained a favorite pastime for some. The accounts of violence are numbing. The cultural and racial implications are profound, and offer a far more accurate, unbiased insight into the tally of African-American and Hispanic victims of mob violence in the Lone Star State than has ever been presented. Many of these deeds were nothing short of morbid theater, worthy of another era.

This book is backed up by years of research and thousands of primary source documents. Includes Index and Bibliography.

Clifford R. Caldwell is recognized as an accomplished historian, author and researcher on the American West. He is an expert in period firearms, and has conducted extensive research on the Texas cattle trails, trail drivers and cattle kings. Cliff is the author of a dozen non-fiction history books, and volunteers some of his time doing research for the Peace Officers Memorial Foundation of Texas.

Ron DeLord served as a patrol officer and detective from 1969 to 1977. In 1977, he was one of the founders of the Combined Law Enforcement Associations of Texas (CLEAT) and was elected its first president. After thirty years as president, he is currently serving as special counsel. Ron is a licensed Texas attorney and is a nationally recognized police labor official, lecturer, and seminar leader. He is the author of numerous works on labor law as well as Texas history.

THE FINE ART OF POLITICS
A Humorous Look at One Era’s Unforgettable Politicians
By Michele Weston Relkin

A book of humor with famous paintings re-imaged with political figures from an era in American politics.

Michele Weston Relkin says in her preface to this book: “Many times as an artist and educator the drumbeat of chaos and excitement can develop into a great piece of art. So it is with this highly enjoyable mix of classical paintings and the political faces that make our American history. With these two elements brewing this compilation of imagery was born. Structuring and repainting the portraits so they live well with the famous paintings was a challenge. But the outcome is highly amusing and a great piece of the American political story. I do not side politically with my artwork but try to bring a smile that is nonpartisan.”

Michele Weston Relkin is one of Santa Fe, New Mexico’s best known living and working artists. She became famous for her social realistic paintings that have occupied the White House for many years. Her work explores many depths outside this venue including mythological, figurative and visual landscapes. She is the creator of “Inside-Out,” a rich celebration of her students’ work. Michele teaches and encourages all her students to greater levels of accomplishments through her private and group workshops. Her paintings are enjoyed throughout the United States and Europe.

FIRE MOUNTAIN
The National Parks: A Nation's Heritage in Jeopardy
By William K. Medlin

SMALL PRESS reported: "Those who love the outdoors or care about our modern relationship to nature will be pleased with this offering."

Order from Sunstone: (800) 243-5644

What kind of relationship between the human being and nature will best serve the interests of both? Using the Lassen Volcanic National Park in California as an example, the author explores these complex issues from early times, and gives an absorbing, controversial and ultimately tragic story.

William K. Medlin was raised in Northern California and spent most summers in the Lassen Volcanic National Park region which gave him a knowledge and appreciation for its natural endowments. After a degree in political science from the University of California, Berkeley, he continued his studies in Europe. Following service with the federal government he taught at the University of Michigan, specializing in planning education for community development and cross-cultural studies. He did similar work for the United Nations for several years. With the increase of concern for environmental policy, he renewed interest in the Lassen area and did volunteer work there upon retirement. He “rediscovered” its wilderness and, for the first time, learned of the tragic fate of its original dwellers.

GOOD BEHAVIOUR
The Supreme Court and Article III of the United States Constitution
By Samuel A. Francis

A GOOD LOOK AT THE U.S. SUPREME COURT

Order from Sunstone: (800) 243-5644

The controversy surrounding the presidential election in 2000 raised many issues regarding the behavior of some of the United States Supreme Court Justices. The Court's decision in the case of Bush v. Gore effectively stopped a recount of votes in Florida. Many critics felt this decision was politically motivated. If so, what did this say about the ability of the members of the Court to remain non-partisan? And, can justices be removed from office even though it is assumed that they are appointed for life? Samuel A. Francis, an Albuquerque, New Mexico attorney examines all these issues and takes a hard look at what "good Behaviour" (original spelling) in Article III of the United States Constitution might mean for the justices in light of events of December 2000. In this concise book, the author also gives a brief history of the Supreme Court, a detailed appraisal of the case of Bush v. Gore, and includes the full text to the United States Constitution.

SAMUEL A. FRANCIS received his Bachelor's degree in political science from the University of New Mexico in 1963. He then earned his Juris Doctor degree from the University of New Mexico Law School in 1966. This is his first published work.

J. FRANK TORRES
Crusader and Judge, An Oral History
By Lois Gerber Franke

Foreword by Marc Simmons

"Here is the inspiring story, graciously told, of Judge Torres, who, like Don Quixote, refused to settle for life as it was, striving instead for life as it should be." John L. Kessell, Southwestern Historian

See PRAISE FOR THIS BOOK below.

Order from Sunstone: (800) 243-5644

José Francisco Torres was born and raised “up the river” above Trinidad, Colorado and his life spanned from the cowboy days of the late 1800s to the technological era of the late 1900s. Despite the security of his home in the rural Spanish community, there was something lacking: opportunity and respect for his people from the outside world. Early on, he conceived the notion that this was wrong, that he and his people deserved better and, as a child, he felt prompted to do something about it. The question became what and how? Discrimination was everywhere and he had neither money nor support to assist him. But with faith and determination, and to the dismay of his parents, he set out to prove it could be done. Refused entry into law school because of his background, he refused to be stopped by the rejection.

This chronicle of the hardships, gains, setbacks and wins in the life of this man details what he felt and what he accomplished in his lifelong battle against prejudice and for equality. In the process, he lost his first love, battled a deadly disease, crossed with the Ku Klux Klan, gained a law degree, defended the poor and disadvantaged, married his Crusita and reared three children, took on the political establishment, joined every civic good cause that came his way, and became the Honorable J. Frank Torres, “the only honest judge we ever had!”

Lois Gerber Franke was born and reared on an eastern Colorado ranch where she learned to ride, rope and shoot. She graduated from the University of Colorado and has completed studies from other institutions. After college she lived and worked at jobs in San Francisco and Washington, D.C. She married Paul, an engineer, and lived at Grand Lake, Colorado where she learned trout fishing.

A LIFE IN THE LAW
A Woman Lawyer’s Life in Post-World War II Albuquerque, New Mexico
By Mary M. Dunlap with Mary Kay Stein

In 1949, when attorney Mary M. Dunlap moved her law practice and her young children from urban Denver, Colorado to their new home in Albuquerque, New Mexico she had no idea what was waiting for her, starting literally at the first stoplight in town. Her career would span more than forty years, bringing her into daily contact with crafty politicians, pueblo Indians, justices of the peace, and an improbable cast of clients—from nuclear scientists and Ziegfeld Follies stars to arsonists, hoboes, and petty criminals. And, to make life more interesting, she and her husband and their children ran a small farm at the same time. The days started early, the work was hard, and then it was time to go to the office, where the day was long, the work was hard, and then it was time to go home. She recalled that she was challenged by men who said that she couldn’t be a real lawyer because she was a woman, or had calluses on her hands or because she drove a pickup. They all changed their minds once they got into court.

Mary Kay Stein, the oldest daughter of Mary M. Dunlap, is president of MD Communications, in Tucson, Arizona. She is a longtime medical writer and editor and also is owner of Desert Light Photography, also in Tucson. Mary Kay is the author of continuing education textbooks for nurses, including Caring for the AIDS Patient; Child Abuse; The Spectrum of HIV Infections; Lifetime Weight Control; Substance Abuse: Guidelines for Professionals; AIDS: A Short Course for Nurses; and Cardiovascular Disease, Evaluation and Prevention. Her poetry appears in Arizona: 100 Years, 100 Poems, 100 Poets. Mary Kay grew up in Corrales, New Mexico and met and knew many of her mother’s fellow attorneys and clients.

LONESOME DAVE
The Story of New Mexico Governor David Francis Cargo
By David Francis Cargo

"Dave Cargo was a visionary governor. He was one of the first New Mexico governors to see the value of the film and television industry to our state's economy. He continues to be a colorful New Mexican and has a strong place in New Mexico's folklore." —New Mexico Lieutenant Governor Diane Denish

“David Cargo gave New Mexicans a say about those things that affect them. Through his leadership and his collaboration with the "Loyal Opposition" in the New Mexico Legislature, Dave accomplished much for the unrepresented citizenry. The establishment of "one person-one vote" districting resulted in diverse representation of the legislative body. This significant action later permeated County, Municipal and School District levels of government. In addition, State parks and libraries will always provide New Mexicans with fond memories of (not so) Lonesome Dave.” —Roberto Mondragon

Order from Sunstone: (800) 243-5644

“There is no precise way to explain the energetic life of New Mexico Governor David Cargo—attorney to the downtrodden, as well as the rich and famous; a changer of legislative reapportionment, and at the same time inventing the first Governor’s State Film Commission in the United States.

“He was a dedicated promoter of many films shooting and spending fortunes in our state. Then the true miracle happened: a Republican became beloved by the liberal Democrats of Hollywood. It had never happened before and mostly likely never will again. He became personal friends with those behind the camera as well as the stars facing it, and consequently had acting parts in twelve of those films.

“And now, while writing his priceless historical memoir, he has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to build, and/or maintain twelve libraries in such isolated New Mexico villages and towns as Mora, Anton Chico, Villanueva and Corona. This is an unsurpassed heritage to leave for the mental and spiritual growth of the youth of New Mexico. “Viva, Lonesome Dave!”
—Max Evans, author of The Rounders, The Hi-Lo Country, Madam Millie, Bluefeather Fellini and other novels.

MY NINE YEARS AS GOVERNOR OF THE TERRITORY OF NEW MEXICO, 1897-1906
Facsimile of Original 1940 Edition
By Miguel Antonio Otero

New Foreword by Ray John de Aragón

Order from Sunstone: (800) 243-5644

Miguel Antonio Otero (1859-1944) not only distinguished himself as a political leader in New Mexico and lived out his life as a champion of the people, but he is also highly recognized for his career as an author. He published his legendary My Life on the Frontier, 1864-1882, in 1935, followed by The Real Billy the Kid: With New Light on the Lincoln County War in 1936, My Life on the Frontier, 1882-1897 in 1939, and My Nine Years as Governor of the Territory of New Mexico, 1897-1906 in 1940. These books, of which this is one in Sunstone’s Southwest Heritage Series, are filled with the raw power and intrigue of the Wild West written by one who lived it. One would expect no less from such a vibrant personality who filled the pages of his monumental history with the passionate memories of an exciting era.

Otero was born in St. Louis, Missouri. His father, who bore the same name, and who was born in Valencia, New Mexico in 1829, had built up a stellar career in the East. Miguel Antonio Otero, Jr. was brought up in a family of wealth and influence, but he also experienced the hardships of growing up in a household that was always on the move. His family’s sojourns took him from one town to another across Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, and New Mexico. During Miguel A. Otero’s travels and frequent stopovers in Wild Western towns he came into contact with notorious outlaws like Clay Allison and popular lawmen such as Wild Bill Hickok, Pat Garrett, Elfego Baca, and other well known figures including Doc Holliday, William F. Cody (“Buffalo Bill”), General George A. Custer, and frontiersman Christopher “Kit” Carson. In fact, Otero was such an adventurous soul that he always sought out, or was in close contact with, anyone making headlines during the turbulent era he lived in. He even published a short lived newspaper called the Otero Optic, which eventually became the Las Vegas Daily Optic. He began his illustrious career in politics as Las Vegas City Clerk, San Miguel County probate clerk, county clerk, and recorder, and district court clerk. Then in 1892 President William McKinley appointed Miguel Antonio Otero as governor of the New Mexico territory where he served until 1906.

NEW MEXICO STORIES
Truths, Tales and Mysteries from Along the Río Grande
By David Roybal

Stories about the people and situations encountered during fifty years by one of New Mexico’s leading journalists.

The kindergarten student, her family recently settled from Mexico, wiggled a loose tooth that she hoped would dislodge soon so she could collect a few coins and not feel left out again at her school’s next bake sale. Lieutenant Governor E. Lee Francis decades earlier had his own wish. He wanted a restraining order against Governor David Cargo, who supposedly was making Francis fear for his safety in the state Capitol. New Mexico Stories is full of gems such as these. They’re stories about life, not just in New Mexico but beyond. They’re stories about the human condition. They’re warm, funny, revealing and at times unsettling. Together they constitute a fascinating segment of New Mexico history. David Roybal, in daily, extraordinary rounds over fifty years, positioned himself to absorb it all.

Newspaperman David Roybal came to be well recognized in isolated villages of northern New Mexico where his work addressed the state’s pressing needs of education, health care, crime prevention, and government accountability. Confronting such issues from all angles, he also was a respected presence in county courthouses and the New Mexico State Capitol, reporting on governors from David Cargo to Susana Martínez. A New Mexico native, his stories have covered the political campaigns of former President Barack Obama and the U.S. Congress. Roybal has also served as a speech writer for a U.S. cabinet secretary and as an executive assistant to a New Mexico governor, state legislative leaders and university presidents. He’s an “organic intellectual,” moving beyond his formal education to understand the richness and frailties of his surroundings, says Arturo Madrid, a distinguished professor honored in the White House for his contributions to the humanities. This is Roybal’s fifth book.

O'BRIEN'S DESK
An Historical Mystery
By Ona Russell

"...an engaging example of that popular cross-genre, the history/mystery. The daily details, smoothly integrated into narrative, give her tale a pleasing, authentic ring." THE HISTORICAL NOVELS REVIEW

"A thrilling, suspense-filled, and vibrantly told novel." MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW

"An intriguing and thoroughly researched story that gives us insight into the moral dilemmas of early 20th century America." ANNE PERRY

"...a terrific read because of its riveting story and because so much of the author's identity is invested in the events it so vividly portrays." RICHARD LEDERED, host of NPR's A WAY WITH WORDS

Order from Sunstone: (505) 988-4418

The year is 1923, and one of Ohio’s most prominent judges, O’Brien O’Donnell, fathers his first and only child. Though a joyous occasion for the recently married, fifty-nine year old, the birth sets off a terrifying chain of events, beginning with blackmail and the judge’s near-fatal breakdown. His only hope for recovery lies with his trusted friend and colleague, Sarah Kaufman.

As Sarah begins to unravel the clues surrounding O’Brien’s collapse, she is repeatedly confronted with the explosively paradoxical forces that defined life in the twenties: sexual promiscuity and self-righteous morality, Progressive reform and political corruption, racial tolerance and institutionalized bigotry. It was O’Brien’s unique ability to strike a compromise between these forces that made him so popular...and, she realizes, so vulnerable to attack.

And soon enough, Sarah, too, becomes a victim, a target of the blackmailer’s hatred and revenge. But with the help of a story-hungry reporter to whom she becomes ambivalently attached, the unconventional Jewess sets out to free the judge and herself from their common enemy. How? The answer lurks within the hidden recesses of...O’Brien’s desk.

Based on true events, this suspenseful novel possesses a unique authenticity. With actual newspaper articles about the real O’Brien O’Donnell beginning each chapter, the story invites readers to solve the mystery along with the protagonist, piecing together a decades-traversing narrative, clip by clip.

ONA RUSSELL holds a Ph.D. in literature from the University of California, San Diego. She has published scholarly articles and has taught in various colleges and universities in the San Diego area, currently at the UC San Diego Extension. Her second novel, The Natural Selection was also published by Sunstone Press.

REVOLUTION AND REBELLION
How Taxes Cost A Governor His Life in 1830s New Mexico
By Frank McCulloch

"REVOLUTION AND REBELLION provides a fascinating...look at the political complexities and social patterns in place at a time when New Mexico was emerging into its own identity yet still deeply infused with the flavors of Spain and Mexico. With fact-based literary imagination, McCulloch creates dialogue and offers vivid physical descriptions. This is a book that brings the past to life. Perhaps it also explains why most New Mexico governors, of they know their history, have attempted to lower the state's taxes rather than raise them. (Gussie Fauntleroy, THE NEW MEXICAN)

Order from Sunstone: (505) 988-4418

The year is 1835, the place New Mexico, the hero or villain, depending upon your view is Don Albino Perez. Perez, the newly appointed Mexican governor, is more of an idealist than a politician. He rides north with high hopes for his new office in a strange land. After reaching New Mexico and assuming his duties, Perez finds he has a strong and forceful opponent in the former governor, Don Manuel Armijo. Armijo, who enjoys popular support, is determined to sabotage all of Perez's programs. His big opportunity comes when Perez puts into effect a vast taxation plan that touches everybody's pocketbooks. Feelings run high and Armijo seizes the moment to act. Perez is captured and beheaded. His short two-year chapter in New Mexico history with its political turmoil and intrigue is ended.

FRANK McCULLOCH, well-known writer of New Mexico history, did extensive research on this fascinating era in New Mexico. He was also fortunate to obtain firsthand accounts of the events from the granddaughter of Don Albino Perez.

SILVIO, CONGRESSMAN FOR EVERYONE
A Biographical Portrait of Silvio O. Conte
By Peter E. Lynch

Order from Sunstone: (800) 243-5644

Every now and then someone with special qualities comes along and touches the lives of many people. Such a person was Congressman Silvio O. Conte who represented Western Massachusetts from 1959 until 1991. His service was marked by a rare combination of humanity, passion and humor. He gracefully bridged the gap between Washington’s Beltway and the small towns and cities of the Berkshire hills of Western Massachusetts. Although always a member of the minority party, his hard work and ability to compromise allowed him to be a designer and strong supporter of many programs to improve education, environment, medical research and infrastructure. Despite long service in the Republican leadership and its many responsibilities in Washington, Silvio Conte managed to build a strong personal connection with his constituents. He was deeply loved and admired by those whom he represented. This book is a brief portrait to give the reader a little of the flavor of this great American political figure who brought to life the Founding Fathers’ goal of giving good representation to the people.

Peter E. Lynch is a graduate of Brown University and a career railroader who worked with Congressman Conte on a railroad rehabilitation project.

“Sil Conte epitomized the soul of Congressional politics--loud, boisterous, intense, tough and just plain fun.” —Former U.S. Representative Bob Livingston (R - LA), Former Chairman, House Appropriations Committee

“A leader among leaders whose humor literally lit up the House of Representatives. Sil brought passion, diligence and a sense of joy to the battlefield of politics and essentially got the result he sought. Sil’s bipartisan, jovial spirit is sorely missed today in the halls of Congress.” —Former Congressman Joseph Moakley, Massachusetts

“Silvio became one of my best friends as we served over thirty years together in the Congress. This book beautifully chronicles his life and works and demonstrates what joy there can be in serving one’s constituents and one’s country.” —Former Republican House Leader Robert H. Michel

“With this book, Pete Lynch joins the chroniclers of great Americans. He has captured the warmth, wit, and political savvy of Silvio Conte, with whom I was privileged to serve in the House of Representatives. This book is a delight and deserves a wide audience.” —Former Connecticut Representative Nancy L. Johnson

SIR
A Novel of Politics and Love
By Mildred Cram

Order from Sunstone: (800) 243-5644

Maybe the doctors in Washington should have told the truth. Maybe the American people had a right to know. Maybe the truth was called for with things in the country as bad as they were. What was the truth about Edward? What was the dilemma he faced and why would his ultimate decision affect the country? And was Megan the true example of the new liberated female or did she exist to serve men--the men she chose? Why was she called "a meddling tramp" by Eithne and "the lovingest woman on earth" by Scott? What was Valerie’s secret?

These are all questions Edward finally finds the answers to in this absorbing story of what happens when a powerful figure in American politics has his life shaken by personal tragedy in a fast-paced world.

This new softcover edition continues the tradition that readers have grown to expect and appreciate from Mildred Cram, the author of FOREVER, one of the many novels that made her famous.

THE SISTERHOOD
The Inside Story of the Women’s Movement and the Leaders Who Made It Happen
By Marcia Cohen

“The Sisterhood is more than a compelling portrait of the early days of the contemporary women’s movement. It is filled with reminders, some which now seem astonishing, of the barriers that stood between women and equality.” —Jeff Greenfield, CBS News

“Lively…. By filling in the details and telling us all about the players, she gives the story a dramatic coherence that it has rarely achieved before.” —Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, The New York Times

Order from Sunstone: (800) 243-5644

In this epic drama of personality and politics, passion and ambition, courage and betrayal, Marcia Cohen tells the fascinating inside story of the feminist revolution through the lives of the women who made it—and were sometimes unmade by it. Focusing on Betty Friedan, Gloria Steinem, Germaine Greer, and Kate Millett, The Sisterhood is a revealing group portrait of the women whose ideas and actions have so profoundly transformed us all.

This classic account traces the women’s movement from its quiet birth in the 1960s through its startling triumphs in the 1970s and its troubled legacy in the 1980s. Today, everything seems possible for women as they function on an equal plane with men in nearly every walk of life. But the revolution was hard won.

Now the irreverent, entertaining history that reveals all the well-kept secrets of feminism, with a thoughtful new foreword by the author, appears in a special edition that serves as a riveting social history, casting light on an entire era so important for women as well as men.

Marcia Cohen is a journalist/historian, a former editor at Hearst, Gannett, and the New York Daily News, whose articles have appeared in The New York Times Magazine and New York Magazine as well as many other national publications. Born in Binghamton, New York, she is an honors graduate of Harvard and now lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She has studied art in Santa Fe and at the Art Students League in New York.

WHY WE THE PEOPLE MUST VOTE
A Call to Action
By Vincent H. Wilcox

Order from Sunstone: (800) 243-5644

"Why We the People Must Vote" brings into focus events that are affecting all of us in America. “We the People” need to face the fact that it's time to take charge and bring about improved change, as we become involved in the political process. We do this by registering and voting, while becoming informed about the candidates and their positions on important issues. We then vote for the best person and not the party per se.

The vote is power! It takes qualified voters to bring about meaningful change, while holding those elected accountable.

It is our right to demand that those representing us support us with responsible legislative action, while keeping our leaders in check. This book tells us how.

VINCENT H. WILCOX is a retired music, history, science and math teacher with a BA and MA degree. He was very active in educational politics at the local and state level in California during the 1960s and 1970s. As a member of a rapidly disappearing generation, he wants to bridge the gap by focusing on the humanitarian achievements of the last century so that the newer generations can understand the need and urgency for a renewed stewardship whereby Social Security, Medicare and education are revitalized and secure for the generations to come so that we have a government that is truly "of the people, by the people, and for the people."
