Quitting
By Glenn Morison
Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 65,030. Language: English. Published: November 25, 2011. Category: Nonfiction
This is a phenomenal piece of fiction. It can be jarring at times but it is worth it. He takes you to a dangerous and perplexing place where you really don't want to go and certainly have no interest in staying. Yet, when you are finished the book, you treasure the journey. I saw the book and thought a book about an Economist couldn't possibly be interesting. I could not have been more wrong.
Tom Poorman Baseball Player From Lock Haven, Pennsylvania
By Robert Grey Reynolds, Jr

My ebook looks at a versatile and little known major league baseball player of the pre-modern era (before 1903). I have empasized the family heritage of Tom Poorman, as well as his baseball career. Poorman played in the late 19th century, a time when games often ended in ties because of darkness. I hope that my research will create more interest in the history of baseball's early players.

Rabbit Maranville was the Joe Garagiola of Grandpa's day, the baseball comedian of the times. In a twenty-four-year career from 1912 through 1936, Rabbit found a lot of funny situations to laugh at, and no wonder: he caused most of them himself. A year before his death in 1954, Rabbit reached back forty years into his memory and put his stories down on paper for future fans to enjoy.
