Interview with Flora Fox. Cassette Tape of interview with Flora Fox on October 29, 1991, her 104th birthday.

That exposition is credited with spreading the popularity of the ukulele across the nation for the next 20 years. Ukulele historians take note! $10.00 US postpaid.

The Bridger: A Secular Humanist Odyssey by Jack Wise Kennedy
A 335-page book that really isn't a novel. And it really isn't a treatise. Just what is it? Jack Wise Kennedy spent many years in institutions -- tuberculosis got him in World War II, leaving him with one lung. The federal government put him away for a crime he did not commit in the sixties. This book is the result of his studies and his experience in the federal rat holes, from the viewpoint of an ardent secular humanist. Published by Pyramid Workers Press -- named for the grunts who actually built the pyramids for the pharoahs -- and edited by Dan Scanlan. $15.00 softback postpaid US; $18.00 hardback postpaid US
