          He interviewed 22 Civil War veterans, then living  in Ok and

          5  years.   Since 1930, the author has been sports publicity
          director at the University of OK.

          Lawrence,  Willa  Cather, Sherwood Anderson, the radicals of

          the  Communist  Party.   Her  social  writings  of  the 30's

          classes,   and  backgrounds  but  especially  the  poor  and

          A:  a native of New Orleans living in Lawrence, KS.   He  is
               Motorman is Moldenke, a man living in the City  of  one
          possible  future-a  man  of little strength, few feelings, 4
          implanted sheep's hearts ticking away inside his chest,  and
          a  need  to seek out the point where the square of existence
          becomes  round.   Of  course  it  can't  be  done,  but  his
          imagination   sets   out  anyway  on  a  voyage  across  the
          "bottoms"--the border lands of his consciousness--to give it
          a several-hearted try.

          A:   Born and raised in Junction City, KS, in 1903.  The son
          of pioneer stock.  His mother "did a lot  of  travelling  in
          covered  wagons"  while  his  father  came  to KS from North
          Carolina  when  he  was  16.   There  were   an   array   of
          grandfathers, great-grandfathers, and great uncles among his
          antecedents who fought-some for the Union and some  for  the
          Confederacy-in  the  Civil War.  Pennell entered KU in 1922,
          and, impressed with English literature, went to Britain, was
          accepted  at  Oxford and studied there for three more years.
          Returning to US he worked as a newspaperman.   In  the  mid-
          1930's,  he  abruptly  returned  home  to  Junction  City to
          reflect on "what it was I wanted."  He read all the books he
          could  get  about  the Civil War.  He took copious notes for
          two years and spent the next five writing.  In 1942  Pennell
          went  into  US  Army  gaining rank of lieutenant in an anti-
          aircraft batallion.  Junction City librarian  submitted  his
          manuscript.   Accepted  by Maxwell Perkins at Scribners, its
          publication, was the  literary  event  of  1944.   In  1947,
          Pennell moved to Oregon, living there for 16 years until his
          death, at the age of 60, in 1963.

          A:   Born in Kansas City, KS in 1923  His great-grandparents
          on both sides were early KS settlers.  His  father's  people
          came  from  Wales and England and followed the steel rolling
          mills west with  the  railroads,  and  his  mother's  family
          formed  in  western  KS.   received  A.B.  in  English  from
          university of Kansas City  in  1944  and  has  worked  in  a

               Kansas in the 1890's, Tessie Barnes brought her  family
          out  to Kansas to protect her husband from women and liquor.
          But the town of Pike, where they ended up, had  12  saloons,
          no side walks and a lot more scope for a man's weakness than
          for a woman's dreams of  respectability.   Tessie's  tragic-
          comic  struggles are told by her daughter Clara, who, in the
          course of the  novel,  grows  up  and  tries  improving  her     
          husband until, one day, she learns that she loves him.

          A:   Began her career as a newspaper columnist in 1935 in an
          effort to verbalize the feelings of the  often  inarticulate
          (small)  farmer with regard to his ill-starred future.  Wife
          of a Kansas farmer and mother of five active  children,  she
          had  innumerable  responsibilities,  including  attending to
          several hundred chickens, a big garden, canning, and cooking
          for  extra  men, not to mention the routine of housework and
          motherhood.  With the exception of some of the  poetry,  all
          of  the  work  in  this book has been published as newspaper
          columns entitled "Medley" in the Beloit Gazette and  in  the     
          Beloit  Call  Gazette.  Mrs. Reiter has written "Medley" for     
          well over a quarter of a century.  She continues to make her
          home  in  Kansas.   She and her husband live on a farm which
          overlooks the Solomon River Valley.

          188 p.
          This is a true story of a young woman who  returned  to  her
          hometown  at  Harper, KS (pop 1800) to operate a century-old
          hotel in a unique and creative manner.  It begins during the
          "hippie"  revolution  and continues through the birth of the
          women's movement.  Her struggles for emotional and financial
          survival,  and  efforts  to  maintain her identity and self-
          esteem in a community where  conformity  is  the  motto  and
          exposure  to  the outside world is limited, will inspire and
          challenge you.  It will also  dispel  any  romantic  notions
          that  life  is  lovely  in peaceful, church-going America-at
          least for those who dare to be different.

               Born in Iowa. His mother was from an Iowa farm and  his
          father was a Missionary Baptist Minister.  Planning to study
          law, the depression intervened.  He cut logs in Oregon for a
          stake  to  buy  an  Ozark  farm in the Bounty River country.
          From this experience came the background for his first novel
          Colored  Water.   Jim  gravitated  to  highway construction,    
          truck driving, locomotive fireman, shipyards,  beet  fields,
          nightschool,  and the air craft industry. Working his way up
          from shop steward through the ranks, he was elected in  1943
          to  a  state-wide  leadership  position  in  the trade union
          movement.  For over 20  years  he  has  served  as  a  vnion
          legislative  agent in the Kansas legislature and in Congress
          in Washington, DC.
