About meRecovering lawyer or late-blooming PhD depending on one's point of view. After 30 years of law practice, I earned my PhD in History and taught at the college level both at the University of Iowa and Luther College. At the moment, I am retired and ALMOST have enough reading time!

About my libraryMy library reflects my passion for and love of art, profession as a historian (specializing in America after Reconstruction -- the Progressive Era, the Great Depression, and the New Deal in particular), and love of literature. In grade school, I read constantly, even while I walked. Sometimes I walked into phone poles. Now I live where there are sidewalks and no phone poles. Problem solved.

Fellow JD here, wishing for that PhD, maybe English...maybe History. Will you be my role model?
You have a great library and great dogs!HAHHAA!! We actually have Lucy, Rielly and Nicky Dachshunds, and Gracey, a mini Irish Wolfhound (read Mutt). Can't wait for the Woolrich books!! Another lost talent. I think a lot of these speciality publishers do fantastic work bringing under appreciated writers back.
Take Care!!
I would highly recommend Now the Hell Will Start: One Soldier's Flight from the Greatest Manhunt of World War II by Brendan I. Koerner. It's the story of Herman Perry, an African-American soldier working on building the Ledo Road in South Asia. He has a mental breakdown and kills a white officer, then flees to the jungle. It's an exciting story and with it you get a background on the war in South Asia, the culture of the people there, and the treatment of African-American soldiers. It's a pretty fascinating read!

Thank you so much for your quick response. When I read your suggestions I recognized the title of Kennedy's book as one I had started! I have a used paperback version of it. It must have been pretty good, as it looks like I made it to page 311 ("Strike" chapter) before I got distracted by some of my books on FDR and Eleanor.
I have only recently started reading with a focus on U.S. history during the 20th century due to a class I am taking at the local university. Do you have any books you would put on the "Do not miss" list for the WWII time period?

If you like MInas Gerais, you're going to love reading about the Estrada Real.

And if you teach L.A. history, you're going to want to read my next book, which is about the Quilombo dos Palmares. Univ. of Arizona Press has sent it out for peer review, and now that I think of it, they're having trouble finding a second peer who knows enough about the subject. If perchance you have any expertise in that niche, maybe I could have them contact you,

Gadzooks man, you have a lot of books, Anyway, I just uploaded a cover for Thomas Har Benton; The America Today Murals and thought that you might be interested. Einar
I enjoyed browsing your history titles...we share an interest in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, though I focus on architecture. Thanks to your library for providing me with a few promising references!
Dear narbgr01;
I kindly invite you to:
Best regards Reinhardt
