The House of the Frog

"The House of the Frog" by Robert Adams

Clayton’s biggest fear becomes his realty. He sees his culture fading like autumn leaves falling to the earth with no hope of rejuvenating itself like it does when spring arrives and everything starts its journey all over again. Elizabeth, Clayton’s daughter and mother of Jonathon and Richard, is married to Sakarja Skovdahl, who drinks a lot and frequently beats her. She eventually leaves him and moves in with her parents. Clayton takes on the father role for the boys by teaching them how to fish, speak Tlingit, and sing and dance. When Jonathon goes off to school, Clayton is proud because he knows an education will prove beneficial in addition to his time-honored teachings. Little does he know Jonathan will be punished for speaking the native tongue. When Jonathon returns for the summer to help his grandfather at fish camp, Clayton is surprised when Jonathan no longer has a desire to speak his own language. After explicit orders from his grandfather not to use the motors for fishing, Jonathon uses them anyway. Cedric Moore moves to Dry Bay looking for work. He fights inner demons that haunt him because of his war experiences. Despite his inner battles, Cedric does good deeds and he likes the Tlingit culture and people. After helping one of her sons, he forms a relationship with Elizabeth, who he passionately loves.

4 Shots: Murder in Mormondom

"4 Shots: Murder in Mormondom" by Roger Blomquist

| Facebook | Mary Stevens was a typical eighteen-year-old girl, living in 1908. She was ready to graduate from school and start her adult life. She lived in Orderville, Utah, a community established for those who wanted to live the United Order. Four shots ended her life one April afternoon and shocked the small community. There had only been one outsider in town at that time and he mysteriously disappeared. The community knew it was him. The posse knew how to find him. But, if it was not him, could it be one of their own? Based on the shocking true story of a small-town murder. Reviews: "Awesome 5 star read" Roger has done a wonderful job of giving us the readers a glimpse of the early 1900's in this tale. I have rated it 5 solid stars. ~ Vermont Reviewer "Great read" Enjoyed the history from this book and made me want to look more into the facts of this murder as I am a Kane County resident. ~ Amy S. "A historical page turner" This was a page turner. Finished the book in two days. The story was well written with lots of details in just the right spots. If you like history and mysteries, you’ll find this book thoroughly enjoyable. The Author does a great job capturing the authentic voice of the time period and does a great job honoring the story. I’d highly recommend this book. ~ Nathan R.
