The Call of the Christmas Pecan Tree
($8.00) ISBN: 978-0-8059-7671-7, paperback
"In a very petite, quiet town, located by the crystal coast seashore, there stood a lonely-hearted pecan tree," begins Edna Stewart's touching story. Though this tree has long received love and attention from the people of the town, bringing them together under the shade of its beautiful branches, it is scheduled for removal. The town is thrown into turmoil as its people debate such a loss to the community, and in the midst of the affair, a new neighbor arrives, drawing the townspeople out to meet the newcomer.
Filled with colorful character portraits, this book offers a heartwarming story of community values, human nature, and the miracles that happen when everyone works together. Discover the joy and inspiration of friendship and good will in Edna Stewart's The Call of the Christmas Pecan Tree.
About the Author
Edna Stewart attended Rutledge College and KERR Business College. She lives in North Carolina with her husband, Michael, with whom she has one daughter, Monique. When asked what prompted her to write this book, she replied, "I once owned a home in a small town where I had a pecan tree that produced very large pecans one year. People in this town would come from all over to pick the pecans out of my yard." In addition to writing, she also enjoys gardening, art, and classical movies.
Hunting the Comeback Trail: Revised
($15.00) ISBN: 978-0-8059-7777-6, paperback
Roy's lack of depth perception caused him to stumble several times while negotiating deadfalls….When Roy twisted his ankle on one of those logjams, he thought it safer to stay along the road.
Roy's patience had grown as would that of any man who's survived serious injury. He waited and when shadows started to get long that evening, he spotted his first bear….
Hunting the Comeback Trail is an inspiring historical documentary on a group of disabled and health-conflicted hunters--Jim, Roy, Pat, Jerry, Ken, and Bill (author William Padilla)--who, since being impaired in the seventies and early eighties, transcended adversity to stay active in their favorite sport.
Padilla succeeds in recreating the drama, excitement, and triumph of these men as they are on the hunt. As he explains the adjustments and accommodations made for these hunters, readers realize the determination of these men who refused to let disability interfere with their passion.
Padilla describes hunting as a "release from the limited world these men have adjusted to" and urges other disabled persons to keep spirited and stay active. He concludes by listing organizations across the country that aid disabled hunters.
About the Author
Through his own experience with disability, avid hunter Bill Padilla recognized the rehabilitating effect hunting can have on an individual. With this in mind, he chose to write Hunting the Comeback Trail to reveal his inspiring stories and those of five other men suffering from health problems who have all experienced the healing effect of hunting.
Padilla is a Wyoming native who is retired and living in his hometown of Cheyenne. He has been a member of the Foundation for North American Wild Sheep, Safari Club International, Disabled American Veterans, and Ducks Unlimited.
Padilla has two children, Antonio and Teresa.
