The narrative comprises scores of first-person interviews with prominent figures and explores common themes that have been addressed in vehicle-related songs - as symbols of freedom, vehicles as status symbols, as courting tools, as utilitarian work conveyances, as metaphors (when Reverend Horton Heat sings about his "Big Red Rocket of Love," he's not just talking about his shoebox Ford), and vehicles simply as vehicles. Illustrated with images of musicians, bands, vehicles, album and poster art, and collectibles, the book draws direct lineages juxtaposing artists that may have previously seemed disparate. Also included are music's car-related lore and tragedies, like Gene Vincent's motorcycle accident that spurred his spiral into alcoholism; Hank Williams' death in the backseat of his Cadillac; the death of So-Cal punk icon D. Boon in a tour-van accident; and Neil Young connecting with Stephen Stills in L.A. because the latter saw the former's Ontario plates in a traffic jam. In the end, Wheels is the expansive sort of book that everyone from the most casual music fan to the most hardcore musicologist will find difficult to put down."--Provided by the publisher.
Download and read online Down the Highway a Peace in PDF and EPUB The northern Great Plains have given this poet a first canvas for his imaginative art as found in his first published poetry collection. In recent years he has began to struggle with the difficult topics of his home region, primarily the difficulty of life out on the northern Great Plains in what he has termed the "patches." In these poems are references to the sugar beet patch, the dry land farming patch, the irrigated farm land patch, the ranching patch, the strip mining patch, and the oil patch. The agrarian culture of his home region is a place of core values and spiritual strengths which encourage him to live simply inspite of the new "badlands" left in the wake of the cultural genocide and environmental degradation of the empire builders of the European ascendancy over North America. Here are poems spoken by personae which can be said to each be the masks of the poet Rick Hilber who in creating his poems would have us, poet and reader or listener, step into the shoes of another. This is a poet that trusts that his individual experience is also a disclosure of the demands on each of us in accepting life on whatever terms it is offered us.

Download and read online Trooper Down in PDF and EPUB It’s a trooper’s worst nightmare. What begins as a routine patrol suddenly turns violent when someone pulls a weapon. Moments later, the trooper is down—wounded or dead. Then, like a swarm of angry bees, every other trooper on the force mobilizes to catch the suspect. Whether they’re issuing a ticket for speeding “just a little” over the limit or conducting an all-out manhunt, the people who have chosen this perilous and demanding profession are rarely revealed as vividly or candidly as they are here. In Trooper Down! Marie Bartlett uses her gripping hell-for-leather style to paint a fascinating portrait of one of the nation’s most elite law-enforcement agencies. In interviews and anecdotes, troopers relate stories of narrow misses, breathtaking confrontations, strange and hilarious encounters with various “crazies,” and, most heartbreakingly, working the wrecks—aiding the injured and dying in highway accidents—while troopers’ wives and widows tell of the heart-wrenching realities trooper families face. Through this remarkable book, we not only comprehend the life of a trooper, we are unforgettably there.

Download and read online My Journey down the Reincarnation Highway in PDF and EPUB In this personal account, one man details how he discovered the fact of reincarnation and explores what he did in his prior lives. More people than you would believe have prior life memories. In his new spiritual memoir “My Journey down the Reincarnation Highway: The True Story of a Man who found nine of His Past Lives” author and businessman Frank Mares tells how he acquired psychic ability in his middle age. With this new gift, he recovered facts about nine of his prior lives, most of which involved violent, bloody deaths. The most recent life was that of a young German Wehrmacht sergeant who was ambushed and killed by Russians during the night of May 1, 1944 in a dark Estonian farmhouse. Not being satisfied with just discovering his past lives, Mares goes on a spiritual mission to find out why he kept dying violently. The answers do not come easily, but by using a team of three world class psychics he eventually tracks down the shocking reason for all his brutal deaths. The psychic team finds that within the soul of this normal small businessman resides a brutal, stone cold killer from the 1600’s who surprisingly was the revered founder of a gentile noble family./p. pAs part of his soul’s continuing quest for redemption, Mares hopes to salvage the dark time in his soul’s past into something that could help others today. His experiences show that death is only a transition phase, and that it should not be feared. His book also reveals that reincarnation is actually a well designed, organized system that allows souls to learn personalized life lessons over a surprising number of lives. If you read this book, you will never look at life (and death) in the same way again.
