These yearbooks chronicle the Association's proceedings in an informal manner using the basic production facilities then available to its small membership, but the reader will see beyond the presentation as if through crystal. Here is a lasting record of the research which gave birth to the Association's two published books, continues to inspire restoration and new construction, and so has played no small part in the plying of the seas into the twenty-first century by the distinctively 'right' boats of Albert Strange

'Finding Albert Strange' is a story of redemption, of one family, on one day, seeking to find itself before it is too late.It begins on a beautiful autumn morning without a cloud in the sky as the Saville family set out to join the celebrations on their country's most important day of the year... For Roger Saville a public holiday is the last thing he needs. Under pressure from shareholders and the banks he has a potential investor in his sights, only his briefcase has gone missing together with its life-saving contents and the company lawyer, Lawrence Beck, seems intent on sinking their billion dollar property empire with talk of insider trading. For Joanne Saville the perfect life created for her and her children, Willie and Samantha, is no protection against the sense of foreboding she feels. What is stopping her from reconciling with her estranged father, Albert, and how long does she have left to do so? Willie's day does not begin well. He has a vague memory of Luke putting the two white pills on Nicole's swollen tongue, but nothing of what happened subsequently. For all of them it will be a day to remember, but for Albert Strange, reluctant war hero, it will be a day he struggles to survive.

The Battle of Fort Sackville appears in every history of Vincennes and Knox County, yet so much more defines this area. Everyone is familiar with George Rogers Clark, but few know about ordinary but accomplished figures like diplomat Hubbard Taylor Smith and Civil War veteran Joseph Roseman. The Stibbins murder of 1911 and other long-forgotten crimes once shocked the county, and visits by politicians and entertainers, including Buffalo Bill Cody, enthralled residents before quickly slipping from memory. Weather made history, too, such as the destructive hailstorm that pounded northern Knox County in 1907. With the help of rare photographs, local historian and Sun-Commercial columnist Brian Spangle brings to life these stories and more.

William Parker Snow (1817-1895) was a sailor, explorer and writer. In 1850 he wrote to Lady Franklin volunteering his services to lead a land expedition to recover her husband, Arctic explorer Sir John Franklin (1786-1847) who had not returned from his 1845 Arctic expedition. Lady Franklin declined his offer, but appointed him as second in command to Charles Forsyth on her first sponsored rescue expedition in 1850 to recover her husband. First published in 1851, this volume contains Snow's account of this rescue expedition. Taken from Snow's personal diary written during the expedition, he describes the hazardous conditions the expedition faced during the brief Arctic summer.

The seven acts of the drama The First Day are set in the Kingdom of the Great Spirit as this Kingdom might have been imagined by Crazy Horse, the legendary war chief of the Lakota Sioux who was assassinated by the U.S. government in 1877, after he had surrendered. The action occurs on January 5, 1960 when Crazy Horse welcomes the French philosopher and writer Albert Camus to the Kingdom. Camus had been killed in an automobile accident the night before. Following introductions, the two begin a walk that lasts from dawn to dusk and traverses a variety of landscapes. Periodically they stop to converse with others in the Kingdom. These include Native Americans Chief Joseph and Chief Seattle, Jesus, and the poets Emily Dickinson, Walt Whitman and Federico Garcia Lorca. Walt Whitman is accompanied by a young friend named Jimmy, and Jesus finds himself leading a band of some twenty children. The travelers discuss various subjects, personal, historical and philosophical. Their principal interest, however, is the mysterious Almighty Power whose grace makes possible their eternal life. Considering this mystery, they also discuss justice and injustice among mortals, why men who struggled to do good often suffered at the hands of those who did evil, and whether poets and poetry are an influence for good in the affairs of mortals. At the end of the day, having bid good day to their fellow travelers and sitting on a mountain ledge overlooking expansive valleys as the night sky is illuminated by an astounding show of lights, Crazy Horse and Camus are joined by Socrates. Socrates explains why it is no evil on Earth can ultimately hurt a virtuous person and how it is the Almighty is revealed to humans during their mortal lives.
