With the bombing of Pearl Harbor in December 1941, dreams of young men and women across the nation were sidelined while the country prepared for war. This was true, too, of Coaches Paul “Bear” Bryant, Carney Laslie, and Frank Moseley, three friends and former football teammates from the University of Alabama. Their plans to coach football together upended, they instead were selected to be part of a little-known contingent of fast-tracked ace coaches turned naval officers known as the “90-Day Wonders.” The tough, military-style team conditioning they implemented at the Navy’s Pre-Flight Training Centers resulted in a US fighting force which became known for being the toughest in the world.

Post-war, the three men reunited again, taking their brand of coaching to collegiate teams and transforming them into national champions. Spanning the 1920s until 1961, A Tide of Dreams is not so much about the game of college football as it is about friendship and loyalty, aspirations and dreams, and the intriguing blend of three personalities who loved the game. Author Carey Henry Keefe, granddaughter of Carney Laslie, has woven this revealing account from a treasure trove of personal letters and diaries, extensive library and newspaper archival research, and numerous interviews, creating an inside and fascinating look at the sport and what it cost for those who became the face of its success.

The Misadventures of a Cross-America Kayaker is the story of an old man on what would probably be his final adventure. Over a span of seven years, Hank Landau paddled and portaged over 4,700 miles on nineteen waterways and rivers, six of them going upstream. He touched seventeen states and traversed thirty-one dams along a route that started at the Pacific Ocean and ended at the Atlantic.

Alone almost the entire trip, and always under his own power, age and injuries took their toll. Paddling over a diversion dam, run-ins with a charging alligator and a rattlesnake that pursued his kayak, almost being run down by tows and barges, being swept out to sea at an inlet, capsizing in rapids, and becoming lost in a swamp as fire ants invaded his cockpit were some of the perilous, life-threatening, and sometimes humorous misadventures he encountered along the way.

He also had ample time to reflect on the accomplishments of early explorers, including those of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, whose route he followed west of the Tennessee River. Not a day went by that he didn’t reflect on the beneficial and detrimental impacts civilization has brought to our rivers and waterways and to the people who now live and once lived along their shores. This is their story, and your story, as well as his.
