After the Apollo program put twelve men on the moon and safely brought them home, anything seemed possible. In this spirit, the team at NASA set about developing the Space Shuttle, arguably the most complex piece of machinery ever created. The world's first reusable spacecraft, it launched like a rocket, landed like a glider, and carried out complicated missions in between. Bold They Rise tells the story of the Space Shuttle through the personal experiences of the astronauts, engineers, and scientists who made it happen--in space and on the ground, from the days of research and design through the heroic accomplishments of the program to the tragic last minutes of the Challenger disaster. In the participants' own voices, we learn what so few are privy to: what it was like to create a new form of spacecraft, to risk one's life testing that craft, to float freely in the vacuum of space as a one-man satellite, to witness a friend's death. A "guided tour" of the shuttle--in historical, scientific, and personal terms--this book provides a fascinating, richly informed, and deeply personal view of a feat without parallel in the human story.

Bold as Brass is a collection of twenty-four stories set in Waterbury, Connecticut, once Brass Capital of the World. All the stories are works of fiction. They are the author's look into long-ago lives, both of her Irish Catholic family and of imagined characters who might have joined them in their daily goings on, in a period of time that stretches from the thirties through the fifties. Whether the characters are swimming at Scovill's Dam on a hot summer day and wondering what is beneath that water or telling stories around the kitchen table on a rainy afternoon, making a pilgrimage to Saint Anne de Beaupre in Canada to request a baby or bearing gifts to a birthday celebration with mixed results, their stories are presented in a way that shows how insightful commonplace occurrences can prove to be. Bold as Brass is the author’s second book, deliciously anecdotal, and a true companion to her first book, The View from Cracker Hill, a memoir of 1950s Waterbury. These are stories of working-class people, of whom Betty notes in "Saturday Night Swells," the idea that "ordinary people can have extraordinary moments is a wonderful discovery." The author says, "I echo Betty's sentiment, and I am delighted to share these stories."
