Woods Cop mystery author Joseph Heywood takes readers to an era when people had to be as hard as the lives they lived. Meet Lute Bapcat, orphan, loner, former cowboy, Rough Rider, beaver trapper, a man who in 1913, with the enthusiastic recommendation by Theodore Roosevelt, himself, becomes one of the Michigan’s first civil service game wardens. His territory: The Keweenaw Peninsula, the state’s industrial center. Featuring a stunning array of characters, fascinating historical detail, and Heywood’s trademark writing about life and work in Michigan’s wild, Red Jacket asks Lute to confront an explosive, bloody labor strike; a siege-like sabotage, including a sudden rash of decapitated, spoiled deer; poisoned trout streams and well water; and unusual deforestation-all apparently designed by mine owners to deny nature’s bounty to the strikers, and thereby to break the union. The strike’s violence culminates in the Italian Hall disaster, during which a man allegedly yells fire in a small building with several hundred people inside. In the panic, 73 people are crushed or die of suffocation, the majority of them the children and wives of striking miners at the hall for a Christmas party. Even with good people dying, the Michigan governor refuses to take sides. Should Lute Bapcat?

In the first modern biography of Red jacket, Christopher Densmore sheds light on the achievements of this formidable Iroquois diplomat who, as a representative of the Seneca and Six Nations, met and negotiated with American presidents from George Washington to Andrew Jackson. The political career of Red Jacket (1758-1830) began just before the American Revolution, when both the Americans and the British sought the alliance of the powerful Iroquois Confederacy. By the 1790s, Red Jacket was frequently the diplomat chosen by the Seneca Nation and the Iroquois Confederacy to represent them in councils and treaty negotiations between the United States, the British in Canada, and the Indian nations of the Ohio Country. Red Jacket spoke eloquently against the sale of Indian lands, against the encroachment of the white man’s religion and culture, and in defense of Indian sovereignty. His speeches were widely known in his own lifetime and continue to be reprinted.

Six Friends. One Leather Jacket. A Future No One Could Believe. Six high school friends find a vintage red jacket that turns out to be more than it seems. As the friends wear the jacket, it becomes part of their emerging identities, as they all struggle to navigate the treacherous path to adulthood. The red jacket is with them as the six friends experience the pain and passion of first love, while a hurricane of emotions pushes them into the shadowlands of sex, drugs and alcohol. While each one wears the red jacket, it reveals the risks to which they are blind. Yet the friends continue down treacherous paths to unexpected outcomes: drug overdose, unplanned pregnancy, STD, a disastrous fire. Suddenly the friends find that the only strength they have is each other, as their lives spiral out of control to a shocking climax that leaves them all forever changed. Based on true stories, The Red Jacket is a powerful novel of friendship and love, and the nature of making choices in a complex world. About the Author: Meredith Kennedy writes on the dangers of poor choices and the wisdom of looking ahead. She wrote her book after hearing several such stories of life-altering events.I hope to speak to young readers in voices they will appreciate and understand, without having to go through these traumas themselves. She is now writing the sequel. Raised in Michigan, Kennedy moved to Africa, where she has taught in many countries; she now lives in Zanzibar.
