A History of Nursing
By Anne Webster

ISBN: 978-1-933483-17-7

The poems in A History of Nursing combine the professional life of a woman in the healing arts with the other aspects of her life. Just as she can never stop being the child of her parents, an adult woman, or a mother, a life in nursing colors everything she does and feels. When the nurse becomes a critically ill patient, all of those elements fuse, making her understand the impact she, as a nurse, has had on others.

A.L. Burruss: Man to Trust
By Margaret Bennett Walters

ISBN: 978-1-933483-18-4 (Published: Fall 2011)

A. L. Burruss was an extraordinary, compassionate, self-effacing, and personable man. He was the eldest of eleven children and son of a painter and carpenter whose family moved to Smyrna, Georgia in the 1930s. After high school, the Navy trained him as a refrigeration machinist and the imaginative and hard-working Burruss used his skills to start a refrigeration business. Eventually Burruss bought out one of his clients—a partner with Tip Top Poultry in Marietta, Georgia—and helped the company to become immensely successful.

Despite his prosperity, Burruss ran for political office as “a way to help others” and achieved political prominence in Cobb County and the Georgia House doing so. This book, filled with images and stories, celebrates A. L. Burruss: A man who referred to himself as a “simple chicken plucker,” his life, and his 22-year career in public service.

Dream Driving
By Don Russ

ISBN: 978-1-933483-08-5

In Don Russ's collection of poetry, Dream Driving, life is a journey. It has dream-like stages, apparitions, visions, and revelations. The journey itself is in some ways a dream, a sleep-wandering among the labyrinths of the mind, of the imagined world, of even the "real" world. What can we finally know for sure? Do we not at least partly create what we see in the act of seeing it?

Guts, Glory, and the Gridiron: A History of Georgia Southern
By F. Erik Brooks

About the Book

Georgia Southern University is a powerhouse in Division I-AA football; with six national titles to its credit, the university’s football program has captured more titles than any other Division I football program in the nation. It should be no shock that this winning tradition was built on the work of several coaches and players and a legacy as deeply rooted and as strong as an old oak tree planted in Sweetheart Circle in the heart of the GSU campus. Although many believe that football began at the school in the 1980s, the history of this illustrious program actually stretches back to the early 1900s. A discussion of Georgia Southern’s football program recalls the names of coaches from the old football era such as Doc Quattlebaum, E.G. Cromartie, and H.A. Woodle. Reminiscing about the Eagles conjures up images of coaches Erk Russell, Tim Stowers, and Paul Johnson each accepting the national championship trophy and notable players such as Tracy Ham, Adrian Peterson, and Jayson Foster. But, aside from the trophies and cheering crowds, little is known about the struggles the football program faced or the constant fight to keep it alive and nurture it into what it is today—a program synonymous with championships and athletic excellence. Guts, Glory, and the Gridiron: A History of Georgia Southern University Football chronicles the guts and glory that built the legendary football program at Georgia Southern University.

Heaven Overland
Poems by Jim Murphy

ISBN: 978-1-933483-20-7

While some singularity or egotism may be unavoidable in poetry, not every poet chooses, as Jim Murphy does, to temper subjectivity with sensitivity to the world around him. Murphy's choice-or his compulsion-to attend to his community, its geographies and histories, is a gift to all readers: this poetry concerns us as much as anything else. Over the last fifty years, American's most visible poetry has been a poetry of ego and personality, in which the writer's self serves as a primary subject-so much so the most readers seem to expect every poem to be a confession or autobiography. But the poetry of community-of environment, of city, of nation-the poetry of concern has also abided, albeit less visibly, as a counterpoise. Heaven Overland draws from both traditions. As it turns outward, this collection extends the ethical tradition, and as it turns inward, marries the subjective to the receptive, recalling Whitman's work more perfectly. This is to say that this book is important, that its commitments and accomplishments are rare and always to be kept in mind.

Running On Full: The Story of Ruth and Ruby Crawford
By Neil Wilkinson

ISBN: 978-1-933483-23-8

Of the many terms used to describe Ruth and Ruby Crawford: Pioneering, courageous, honest, ambitious, generous, funny, witty, energetic, reverent, spiritual, faithful, altruistic, kind, sweet, and any number of other superlatives, these two extraordinary women thought themselves really pretty ordinary.

They grew up in Temple, Georgia, a small town forty-five miles west of Atlanta. In 1943, Ruth and Ruby moved to Atlanta, which they ultimately called home. Running on Full: The Story of Ruth & Ruby Crawford is an account of their interesting, challenging, and fulfilled lives, told from their unique point of view. These women were not eccentrics, but women of substance, feminists without the rhetoric, pioneers as lawyers in a time when there were few women in the profession, and as bankers, where they were among the first women bank officers in the country in the 1960s.

They Love to Tell the Story
By Kevin Brown

ISBN: 978-1-933483-15-3

The Virgin Mary. Joseph. Peter. Mary Magdalene. Judas Iscariot. Pontius Pilate. Jesus. In They Love to Tell the Story: Five Contemporary Novelists Take on the Gospels, Kevin Brown examines how Nikos Kazantzakis, Anthony Burgess, Norman Mailer, José Saramago, and Nino Ricci portray each of the major figures from the gospel stories against the backdrop of biblical and legendary lore. The result is a many­-textured tapestry of insight and reflection in which Mary encourages her son to lead a normal life; Peter is coarse and rash, loyal and treacherous; Judas might well have understandable motives; and Jesus struggles with the temptations of love and power, revealing a divinity and a humanity vying for expression. By retelling stories people think they know, these five authors challenge their readers to confront assumptions and encourage all of us to ask ourselves why we believe or don’t believe what we might well have long held to be true.
