Fearless Flight: The Amazing Adventures of Wiley Post
Our Price: $14.95

To say that Wiley Post was an aviator risk taker would be an understatement; he was a man who exceeded all expectations, overcame a criminal past and conquered physical and emotional disabilities.  His journeys include jumping out of airplanes, crash landing, soaring to unexplored heights, and pushing himself and his planes to the absolute limit.  Wiley Post’s strength of character and resolute determination sets him apart as one of the world’s most renowned and innovative pilots.  His record-setting flights are legendary, his discoveries and inventions remain unparalleled in the aviation world, and his impact on aeronautics is the source of legend.  It is now more than seven decades since Wiley Post flew some of the most remarkable flights in aviation history and ultimately died “at the top of the world” with his friend, Will Rogers.  This young reader adaptation of Bob Burke’s award-winning biography of Post, From Oklahoma to Eternity:  The Life of Wiley Post and the Winnie Mae, is filled with Post’s exciting adventures, enriched with detailed illustrations and photographs, and brings Post’s story to another generation.

What Would You Do If A Kangaroo…
List Price: $18.95
Our Price: $18.95

LaDonna Kramer Meinders loves writing, and sometimes even thinks in rhymes. She wrote her first poem in 2nd grade and has been writing ever since. From plays in elementary school that she and her classmates performed to poetry, short stories, and an unpublished novel, writing has become a part of her. Meinders hopes that What Would You Do If A Kangaroo… stimulates the imaginations of children and makes them want to read more about the world and its people.

“Once children experience the joy of reading, they discover a life-long treasure and I hope we can kindle that. My young grandchildren are readers, and that is very exciting for me,” Meinders says.

This collection of poems can be read on one’s own, by a parent to a child, a grandparent to a grandchild, and by a friend to a friend . . . the combinations are endless.

If the Fence Could Talk

On April 19, 1995, Oklahoma City was changed forever when the unforgivable act of one individual took the lives of 168 men, women, and children and injured hundreds more. Following the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, a fence was stretched around two city blocks to protect the site during the rescue and recovery efforts.

If the Fence Could Talk shares what the fence became in the days, months and years that followed for the rescue workers, family members, friends and strangers who gathered at the site. From teddy bears and t-shirts to notes and flowers, for more than 20 years the fence has been a place where people come to remember. With a section remaining permanently, the fence remains a place of worship, solace, hope, and tears.
