Bank Square Books presents a weekend book signing with Charles Bruckerhoff for the book Plowman.
About the Book
At twelve, Stella Young and Hana Sanada enrolled in the Stanton Academy for Humanity, where learning was hard, built character, imparted truth, justice, and morality for America’s youth. Students retitled the school Sustainable Farming on Steroids.
One day, the girls discovered the wartime journals of their two great-grandfathers, who served in WWII, and a wartime journal of Stella’s grandfather, who served in Vietnam. Now, many years after the wars ended, the girls began turning the journals into a book-length manuscript.
Their thoughts about the book's themes changed abruptly. Stella's father was an infantry captain, serving in Afghanistan. One evening, army officers arrived at her home to inform Olivia, her mother, and Stella, that their beloved husband and father had been killed in battle. This horrific news crushed their whole family.
The girls researched the deeply troubling "wrong wars" that the American government had committed her heroic soldiers to, since the start of the Vietnam war.
Years later, they watched news of America’s pullout from Afghanistan.
Now adults, Stella and Hana sized up what had gone so wrong with the American government, its military, and society. They embarked on a mission to restore law and order, honor, morality, and integrity to the United States of America.

In the third book of Adelyn's Adventures, a girl travels in the summer with her grandparents to the Atlantic seacoast. They stay at a cottage in a secluded cove, with the sand and surf a short distance from their front porch. A great black-backed seagull, named GG, befriends the girl. They spend the day exploring life on the beach, in the surf and the waves out at sea.
In the second book of Adelyn's Adventures, a little girl chooses to explore the garden her grandparents plant every year. She meets different creatures, each doing its duties for Mother Nature. Ruby, a perky hummingbird, flies in and out of the garden, while fighting off other hummers.
A little girl seeking an adventure one morning, discovers a footpath in the forest behind her grandparents' house. Walking on the path she meets wild animals who live there. Each animal reveals basic facts and lessons about the natural world. A crow is very clever at solving problems. A chipmunk signals when it senses danger.
