The Tribe of Foxes: The True Inside Story About the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation
($13.00) ISBN: 978-0-8059-7375-4, paperback
This enlightening expose reveals one man's experiences when he married into the mashantucket pequot tribe. Leo Fletcher, "a simple man who has lived a simple life," suddenly becomes engulfed in corruption and greed when he meets his future wife, a sister of a church in Ledyard, Connecticut, marries her, and becomes part of her tribe: the Mashantucket Pequot tribe. As a new tribal spouse, Leo integrates himself with the customs of the tribes--and learns of the very secrets the tribal leaders don't want released.
While discrimination and greed permeate the walls of the tribe, Leo threatens to expose them--the disadvantages the whites have over the people of color, the money intended for the betterment of the tribe that ends up in the leaders' pockets, and the false accusations and embarrassment of the tribal members. The lies, injustice, and discrimination will continue--unless someone does something about it.

Child Lost in the City
($15.00) ISBN: 978-0-8059-7787-5, paperback
This candid book details the author's struggles with drug addiction, unplanned pregnancy, and incarceration. From a young age, Sheila Imanni Wilson felt she was lost. Her learning disability made school difficult, and her family moved around a lot, which made it hard to establish friendships. A teenage relationship led to an unplanned pregnancy. Wilson soon stumbled down the path of finding comfort in drugs.
The downward spiral continued as her addiction led her into bad, and sometimes dangerous, relationships. More unplanned pregnancies and incarceration followed. Her twins were lost as the result of a violent attack, and every time she worked to make parole, she seemed to end up back in trouble. She tried a change of scenery, living at times in Pittsburgh, Carlisle, and New Jersey, but no matter where she went, she always seemed to be drawn to more problems.
Turning her life around for other people--her family, her parole officers, and even her children--never worked. It was only after Sheila decided to do it for herself that she was finally able to get on the right track after so many years. Told in a candid, first-person narrative, this book shares her struggle to grow from a lost child to a strong woman.
