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.

Gateway City: Covington, Kentucky, 1815-2015
Tenkotte, Claypool and Schroeder


This bicentennial history of Covington, Kentucky, presents an overview of an important gateway city. At times, this gateway has pointed in different directions, and, at other times, it has vacillated between innovation and complacency. Like other transitions or gateway regions, the residents of Covington have sought their fortunes with the prevailing winds of change. Initially, Covington served as a “Gateway to the West,” then as a “Gateway between the North and the South,” followed by a “Gateway to the North,” and most recently as a “Gateway to Progress.”

Gateway City studies the growth and development of a city within the context of national and regional events, particularly those affecting a border region. Lying on the southern shore of the Ohio River opposite Cincinnati, Ohio, Covington is part of a vibrant metropolitan region of 2.1 million people. With Cincinnati, it shares a common destiny as a transition area, a border region that has acted as a geological, climatological, historical, and cultural “gateway.”

In a 21st-century global economy, where cultures collide, connect and collaborate, the study of how historic border regions have functioned can inform modern decision-making. Border areas like Covington and Cincinnati have long struggled with—and turned to their advantage—the challenges and opportunities afforded by cultural, political, and economic differences. The resultant innovations have fueled their economic prosperity, as well as their cultural diversity.

With the exception of the US-Mexico border region, few transitional areas within the continental United States have been studied for their historical lessons. This book offers a glimpse of the historical themes underlying an interior border region, and one that was vitally important during the Civil War.

Ghosthunting Colorado
Kailyn Lamb


In the 1800s, Colorado quickly became the heart and soul of the gold rush that eventually brought the territory into statehood. Thousands flocked to cities like Leadville in the hopes of finding their fortunes. Many of Colorado's most famous ghosts, such as “The Unsinkable Molly Brown,” have their roots in Colorado's colorful mining history. Alfred Packer, the state's sentenced cannibal, also came to Colorado for gold, but there are more than just the spirits of miners here.

The eyes of paranormal enthusiasts have long been on the Centennial State due to the fame that Stephen King's The Shining brought to the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park. The stories of Colorado's mountainous hotel seem to have taken on a life of their own, making the building supposedly one of the most haunted in the country. The Stanley, however, is not the only haunted hotel in Colorado. Multiple inns and hotels in Denver alone have histories as sites of brothels, suicides, and other deaths that make their victims decide to stay in their beloved rooms forever. The oldest hotel in Denver, The Oxford Hotel has ghosts aplenty and a “Murder Room” to boot. A bed and breakfast in Capitol Hill called The Patterson Inn used to be the mansion of Colorado's first state senator. The 14,000-square-foot building is made of red sandstone native to the Garden of the Gods area. The mansion is also the source of several urban myths, such as the tale of “Willy,” a satanic undertaker who lived in the carriage house and is said to have kidnapped and killed small boys.

Ghosthunting Colorado also looks outside of Denver, at the Rocky Mountains of Colorado are considered to be one of the best destinations in the country for hiking and skiing. The mountains appeal to spirits, as well, including the ghost of a woman who was supposedly murdered by her husband and who is now said to hitchhike on the roads near Pike's Peak. The world-famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison is not without its ghosts. Concertgoers and employees have seen the apparition of a miner in restricted areas of the venue, while the Hatchet Lady of Red Rocks terrorizes lovers in the surrounding park.

Author Kailyn Lamb looks at locations throughout the state and dives headfirst into the history behind the ghosts and what has made them stay.

Ghosthunting Maryland

Ghosthunting Maryland
Michael O. Varhola


    All the sites in the book have been chosen with an eye toward several criteria, including how accessible they are to the public, how evocative experience a trip to them is likely to produce, and the extent to which they actually appear to be haunted. A great many in the various regions of Maryland have some connection to the Colonial era, the War of 1812, or the Civil War, all significant aspects of the state’s haunted history.

    Maryland is divided into six regions for purposes of this book: Baltimore, Central, D.C. Metro, Eastern Shore, Southern, and Western. Geographically speaking, Maryland is not a large state. It is, however, among the oldest in the country, and has a rich, varied, and turbulent history that has contributed to an exceptionally high number of haunted sites. Because it is relatively compact, Maryland is in many ways an ideal state for a haunted roadtrip — especially in an era of historically high gasoline prices — and many haunted sites within the same area can easily be reached on a single weekend-long trip.

    Indeed, although my own home is currently in Northern Virginia, on the southern side of the Potomac River from Maryland, its furthest point from me is still somewhat less than 300 miles — as opposed to nearly 500 for some of the most distant points in southwestern Virginia. Note that this outline includes more listings than there will be room for in the book, and that a number of these will either be cut, reduced to sidebars within larger chapters, or listed in the appendix of additional haunted sites.

    As with Ghosthunting Virginia, research revealed early on a striking number of sites reputed by various sources to be haunted. With space in this volume for only a limited number of these, the authors carefully attempted to identify a representative selection that both emphasized variety and a struck a balance between “must include” sites — such as the graveyard where Edgar Allan Poe is buried — and more obscure ones that do not appear in any other books.
