The very strange but nevertheless true story of the dark underbelly of a 1960s hippie utopia. Laurel Canyon in the 1960s and early 1970s was a magical place where a dizzying array of musical artists congregated to create much of the music that provided the soundtrack to those turbulent times. Members of bands like the Byrds, the Doors, Buffalo Springfield, the Monkees, the Beach Boys, the Turtles, the Eagles, the Flying Burrito Brothers, Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention, Steppenwolf, CSN, Three Dog Night and Love, along with such singer/songwriters as Joni Mitchell, Judy Collins, James Taylor and Carole King, lived together and jammed together in the bucolic community nestled in the Hollywood Hills. But there was a dark side to that scene as well. Many didn’t make it out alive, and many of those deaths remain shrouded in mystery to this day. Far more integrated into the scene than most would like to admit was a guy by the name of Charles Manson, along with his murderous entourage. Also floating about the periphery were various political operatives, up-and-coming politicians and intelligence personnel – the same sort of people who gave birth to many of the rock stars populating the canyon. And all the canyon’s colorful characters – rock stars, hippies, murderers and politicos – happily coexisted alongside a covert military installation.

Ute shaman Daisy Perika is no stranger to eerie dreams, but when she has a nightmare, lives could be at stake. Convinced that her visions of a wisp-thin girl with blood dripping from her hands are omens, the old woman calls on her nephew, Charlie Moon. Moon, a part-time tribal investigator and full-time Colorado rancher, is skeptical, but he knows better than to dismiss his quarrelsome aunt too quickly. After all, she has been right before. But what can he do? Although Daisy can see what's left of a dying man's face, she can't get a clear look at the girl's. Without that, Moon doesn't have anything to go on. Then he gets a call about a very real murder. Sarah Frank, an Ute-Papago orphan and daughter of Moon's childhood friend, was spotted standing over the battered body with blood on her hands. Moon and FBI Special Agent Lila Mae McTeague cross the border to investigate, but they're too late. Not only has little Sarah vanished with a one-of-a-kind family heirloom, but Moon and McTeague aren't the only ones on her trail. Off the reservation and across states lines, James D. Doss's clever mystery finds Moon on the law enforcement side of the investigation and his aunt Daisy decidedly on the other.

Pretty Prairie, dating from the late 1880s and somewhat before the advent of settled agriculture, was linked to the larger world by its location on a rudimentary stage coach line which connected the pioneer towns of Wichita in the south central part of the state with Dodge City to the west. As historians tell it, the city's colorful name reflects a comment by a lady traveler from an east coast state on a western-bound stage coach. At a stop to rest the horses and give the travelers time to stretch their legs, the traveler stepped out of the coach, inhaled a deep breath of the fresh air, looked with wonder and amazement at the seemingly endless expanse of verdant prairie grass on low-lying hills, and remarked, "Oh, my! What a pretty prairie!" And so it began to be known as such! Today, with a population of about 680 inhabitants, Pretty Prairie faces challenges similar to those confronting many small towns in the American heartland""viz. the paucity of remunerative employment opportunities which encourages educated younger residents to pursue an "odyssey (an extended, adventurous voyage)" in search of greater economic opportunities and soul-fulfilling adventure! Jim's "odyssey," as articulated in this narrative, is almost certainly only one of many undertaken by the youth of these communities. Notable personalities associated with Pretty Prairie include former Kansas Governor, Walter A. Huxman; nationally acclaimed artist of American wild life, Jack Unruh; iconic, long-term athletic coach at Pretty Prairie High School, George Norton; and Carl "Alfalfa" Switzer of the Little Rascals/Our Gang series. "Author Jim and his loving wife of more than 60 years of marriage, Shirley, now live in retirement in North Newton, Kansas and remain occupied with educational, community and church activities. They are the parents of five children and grandparents of nine. Jim's remarkable career has come from humble roots on a farm near Pretty Prairie, Kansas, through halls of influence and power in Washington DC; Beijing, China; Addis Ababa, Ethiopia; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Guatemala City, Guatemala; Ulanbaatar, Mongolia; Pyongyang, North Korea and elsewhere, always driven by the consummate desire to honor the gentle exhortation of his father in Jim's youth to "...leave this world upon departure a better place than when you arrived"! Foundational reference points along the way for Jim include: The "Good Book", the Christian Bible, and the words of Proverbs 3: 5-6: "Trust in the Lord with all you heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight"; The profundity of Robert Frost's words in his 1916 epic poem, "A Road Not Taken"; "Two roads diverged in a wood and I took the one less traveled by; And that has made all the difference!" The hauntingly moving phrases in Paul Anka's song, "My Way!", sung so well by Frank Sinatra: And now the end is near; and so, I face the final curtain. My friend, I'll say it clear; I'll state my case of which I'm certain! I've lived a life that's full; I've traveled each and every highway! But more, much more than this: I did it my way!"

Lunar Outpost provides a detailed account of the various technologies, mission architectures, medical requirements and training needed to return humans to the Moon within the next decade. It focuses on the means by which a lunar outpost will be constructed and also addresses major topics such as the cost of the enterprise and the roles played by private companies and individual countries. The return of humans to the surface of the Moon will be critical to the exploration of the solar system. The various missions are not only in pursuit of scientific knowledge, but also looking to extend human civilization, economic expansion, and public engagement beyond Earth. As well as NASA, China’s Project 921, Japan’s Aerospace Exploration Agency, Russia, and the European Space Agency are all planning manned missions to the Moon and, eventually, to Mars. The Ares-I and Ares-V are the biggest rockets since the Saturn V and there is much state-of-the-art technology incorporated into the design of Orion, the spacecraft that will carry a crew of four astronauts to the Moon. Lunar Outpost also describes the human factors, communications, exploration activities, and life support constraints of the missions.
