Meredith Willson marched into the hearts of American music lovers with productions such as the "The Music Man" and "The Unsinkable Molly Brown," and unforgettable show tunes like "76 Trombones." It is the amazing story of how a youngster with talent and tenacity, possessed with what he would later call a streak of "Iowa stubborn", rose to become one of America's most famous musicians. It is the story of a remarkable career in which Willson: helped scientist Lee deForest in experiments that developed sound for motion pictures, wrote the music for Charlie Chaplin's first "talkie," wrote a song recorded by the Beatles, and won the first Grammy award ever presented. John C. Skipper is a newspaper journalist whose 35-year career has produced thousands of newspaper columns and five books. John and his wife, Sandi, live in Mason City, Iowa, just a stone's throw from Willson's famous footbridge. They have three grown daughters and one grandchild.

This newest book by the West's beloved historian, Agnes Wright Spring, is a collection of reminiscences about distinguished people known to the author during her half-century of work as an historian. Near the Greats presents little-known vignettes of well-known people: William Henry Jackson, Black Kettle's widow, Lowell Thomas, Mamie Eisenhower, Kit Carson III, Calamity Jane and many more. Near the Greats is, in essence, a autobiography of a great historian. Mrs. Spring introduces us to some of the people who most profoundly influenced her career: Dr. Grace Raymond Hebard, William C. Deming, Dr. James Grafton Rogers and others. Agnes Wright Spring shares with us some moments of pride and honor, such as the night Walter Brennan presented her with the coveted award from the National Cowboy Hall of Fame. We follow along her road to success as a published author, beginning at Columbia University's School of Journalism in the early 1900's. We experience her frustrations and accomplishments as editor of the "Wyoming Guide", Writers' Project of the WPA. If you know or would like to know Anges Wright Spring, Near the Greats will of course be a part of your library. But for anyone seeking a first-person exposure to the last hundred years of Old West history, Near the Greats should top the list of recommended reading.

In the 1960s, the Broadway musical was revolutionized from an entertainment characterized by sentimental standards, such as Camelot and Hello, Dolly!, to one of brilliant and bittersweet masterpieces, such as Cabaret and Fiddler on the Roof. In Open a New Window, Ethan Mordden continues his history of the Broadway musical with the decade that bridged the gap between the romantic, fanciful entertainments of the fifties, such as Call Me, Madam, to the seventies when sophisticated fare, such as A Little Night Music and Follies, was commonplace. Here in brilliant detail is the decade and the people that forever transformed the Broadway muscial.
