• "A massive industrial hog operation is quietly permitted and constructed near the Buffalo National River, the pristine crown jewel of the state of Arkansas. It is nearly complete by the time the public becomes aware of it, too late to do anything to stop it. This is the true story of how a small group of Arkansans stood toe to toe with powerful special interests, state and federal agencies, the state legislature, and two of the largest corporations in the world, all to protect the Buffalo National River for future generations. Ignored and disparaged, they lost every step of the way. ...Until they won." Save the Buffalo River Again by Brian Thompson $16.95
  • These wonderfully detailed and beautifully printed photographs are about people's adventures and discoveries: The Buffalo River and its towering bluffs, its side canyons with hidden waterfalls, its natural bridges, historic places, and more. For those who have been there, the book brings great memories. Been there or not, it can inspire you to learn more. In his essay, John Heuston tells how these photographs became powerful weapons in historic battles to keep the Buffalo River and other wonders from being spoiled.

  • Two old college buddies contemplate hiking the Appalachian Trail. The problem is, one of them is severely vision impaired and his ability to follow a simple footpath is in serious question. They decide to first try an overnight hike in Arkansas; an unmitigated disaster. Upon their return, one fellow's wife declares he is too old fat and blind to be crashing about in the woods. The other’s wife notes how lucky they are to have learned their lesson before attempting anything as seriously challenging as the Appalachian Trail. Humiliated, their dignity in tatters, (and perhaps not the fastest learners), they decide to go anyway. This is their story, traveling America’s greatest footpath; the places, the people, the history. ISBN: 979-8577057978, 276 pages, paperback, February 2021
