Cuba: Lost and Found
Edward J. Neyra


    In 1962, eleven–year–old Edward J. Neyra left his homeland of Cuba as part of a secret operation that relocated 14,000 children to the United States before the Cuban Missile Crisis. In Cuba: Lost and Found, he tells the dramatic story of his life before the Revolution, from his carefree early years in the city of Cárdenas and Varadero Beach through his struggles to find a place in his new country, to his hard–won achievement of the American Dream. This engaging Horatio Alger story chronicles a life well lived.

Frozen in Time: The Enduring Legacy of the 1961 U.S. Figure Skating Team
Nikki Nichols


    Frozen in Time presents a deeply researched account of one of the most iconic stories in the history of American sport. Most sports fans have heard the tragic story of the plane crash that killed all the members of the 1961 U.S. World Figure Skating Team, and sixteen of their friends, family and coaches, en route to the World Championships in Prague. This account takes readers inside the lives of the skaters, revealing the friendships and romances, the rivalries, sacrifices, and triumphs of the world-renowned competitors.

    The dramatic focus lingers on two families of powerful women: the Owens and the Westerfelds. Maribel Owen, without question the most famous woman in figure skating at the time, relentlessly drives her two young daughters, pairs champion Mara and the spectacular Laurence, who graced the cover of Sports Illustrated on the day she died; Myra Westerfeld, meanwhile, loses her marriage while guiding her daughters Sherri and Steffi to the pinnacle of the sport.

    Author Nikki Nichols also explores the aftermath of the crash. In an unprecedented period in American athletics, the U.S. skating program had lost all of its stars and struggled to rebuild, pushing forward very young competitors, such as Peggy Fleming. But perhaps the most far-reaching effect was the creation of The United States Figure Skating Association’s Memorial Fund, which would provide training grants and scholarships to skaters who would not otherwise be able to afford the sport—among them Scott Hamilton and other of top skaters.

John Kachuba


    Whether you believe in ghosts or other aspects of the paranormal, every culture has its folklore and many, many people have had an experience they simply can’t explain.

I cannot explain the whitish orbs that appeared in some photos I took in buildings said to be haunted. I cannot explain the feelings of negative energy I felt in a haunted basement,” says the author in the book’s introduction. “I am not a ‘sensitive’ or medium. I’m an average guy, just like you, with a curiosity about things paranormal. My intentions as I wrote this book were to accurately and objectively describe for you my observations and experiences, as well as the experiences of others I met along the way, and then let you draw your own conclusions.”
