Fool's Paradise is a blend of real events; fiction; fantasy; mystery and incredible adventures that tells the life story of Bobby Ferguson aka: Bobby McAllister, from early childhood and a near-death experience that delusionally introduces him to a spectral pirate who tells him about the mythical treasure ship, "The Prize." As if one ghost in his life is not enough, a teenage McAllister meets an apparitional woman who not only re-enforces his belief in the existence of The Prize but; convinces him of his destiny to locate the mysterious ship. Working for a corrupted politician; a stint as a producer for a television station, his chance meeting of an established and world-famous treasure hunter, and even a stretch in an Arizona prison, all combine to put him out to sea in search of The Hacha del Oro, a documented treasure ship that went down in a mighty hurricane off the coast of the Florida Keys over 250 years ago. In spite of all the adversity involved, McAllister's experience on the Hacha Project proves to be successful and he confides to Granger Lawton, his true quest is "The Prize," a treasure he fully expects the reluctant and leery Lawton to help him find. Determined to act as McAllister's Devils' advocate, Lawton agrees to help in the search of The Prize. Their investigation takes them to Seville, Spain, the home of the Archives of the Indies, and perhaps, wherein lays the answers to the unsolved two-hundred and fifty-year old mystery. While touring the Spanish countryside, McAllister comes across a dusty and deserted old mansion that contains one-hundred year old evidence of the identity of the haunting apparition that has been McAllister's obsession since his teen-age years. The portrait of a beautiful woman distracts his pursuit of The Prize and sends him on what Lawton characterized as a "wild-goose-chase" up the Oronoco River in Venezuela. On a regal, yet struggling cattle ranch outside Ciudad, Bolivar, a gentleman rancher, whose daughter steals McAllister's heart, entertains McAllister, and Lawton. It is Lawton who stumbles on evidence of not only the existence of the The Prize, but its actual location. It takes McAllister, however, to finally locate the cargo she carried by carefully piecing together all of the clues, evidence, cryptic conditions of the island priestess, and even the phantoms of his past to lead him to the treasure...

But, not one to let setbacks stop him, Tom Swift accepts a contract to help complete a NOAA weather station in Florida that has lost its primary contractor. While investigating the site he and his best friend Bud are nearly killed in an explosion. Or, was it an attack? He sets about creating a safety and security system but encounters a mysterious submarine out in the Gulf of Mexico.

The 1970's and 1980's were the boom days of general aviation when learning to fly was easy, cheap and somewhat free from stifling government regulation. Availability of the GI Bill and low fuel prices enabled many, including the author, to learn to fly and add ratings while enjoying the nostalgia provided by the use of the few remaining barnstorming era airfields and training from former World War II pilots.This book memorializes many logbook entries of the author and includes some of the adventures he shared with his friends, family and others while flying small planes and hot air balloons.

In the high-speed world of the fighter pilot, milliseconds can be the difference between life and death. Only when you’ve practiced, prepared, and predetermined what to do in a crisis can you react quickly enough to y the plane out of the situation or eject if need be. Likewise, we often face critical spiritual decisions with only moments to make a choice. Professional pilot and youth speaker Brock Booher helps us recognize and learn to responsibly use the most enabling tool we possess—moral agency. By building spiritual muscle memory, we can expertly exercise it in the milliseconds leading to the smallest or most important decisions in our lives. Don’t live life on autopilot. When mishaps and tough choices inevitably come your way, Fly, Eject, or Die helps you to prepare now, so that in the moment, faith will overcome fear and you can soar through any obstacles this earth life may hurl at you. PRAISE FOR FLY, EJECT, OR DIE “It only takes 5 seconds to change your life...and only a few chapters to tell you how!” -Wade Whiting, sales manager and youth leader “Arm yourself for the ride of your life by adopting these powerful principles!” -Marcus North, fighter pilot

This fascinating account of the development of aviation in Alaska examines the daring missions of pilots who initially opened up the territory for military positioning and later for trade and tourism. Early Alaskan military and bush pilots navigated some of the highest and most rugged terrain on earth, taking off and landing on glaciers, mudflats, and active volcanoes. Although they were consistently portrayed by industry leaders and lawmakers alike as cowboys�and their planes compared to settlers� covered wagons�the reality was that aviation catapulted Alaska onto a modern, global stage; the federal government subsidized aviation�s growth in the territory as part of the Cold War defense against the Soviet Union. Through personal stories, industry publications, and news accounts, historian Katherine Johnson Ringsmuth uncovers the ways that Alaska�s aviation growth was downplayed in order to perpetuate the myth of the cowboy spirit and the desire to tame what many considered to be the last frontier.
