In the late 1800s, Clovis M. Cole purchased large tracts of land in California's San Joaquin Valley with the intent to farm wheat. Marcus Pollasky, a businessman from the East with a keen eye for a profit, proposed building a railroad that would bring more people and gains to the area. The two struck a deal. Cole sold key landholdings to Pollasky, and the town was given Cole's first name. Businesses grew along Front Street, and families purchased nearby 20-acre parcels where they built homes and grew abundant crops. Living in Clovis became a way of life as dedication to family, friends, and community defined the area.

Whening Tennis

Whening Tennis: In Tennis, as in Life, Timing is Everything is an instructional book. It is unique in that it does not focus on the "how to" of playing the game as much as the "when to" for more tennis success. The author's primary focus on "when decisions" is an entirely new instructional approach for many aspects of the game. When a player learns to combine good "when" decisions with real effort to play the game to the best of their ability, regardless of the final score, winning has been achieved. Thus, Whening Tennis becomes winning tennis, the essence of the book. The subtitle, In Tennis, as in Life, Timing is Everything, emphasises the importance of "when" decisions and their crossover from tennis into life's experiences. "What a fantastic job Larry Huebner has done with his great publication, "WHENING TENNIS!" First, one would be hard pressed to find anyone more qualified to write about tennis than Larry - no one is more respected in the tennis world by people who know the game. Second, how refreshing it is to have something other than just a "How-to" book to help one understand and enjoy tennis more! Larry has done a fantastic job in selecting, simplifying and organizing his topics. Everything Larry writes about is relevant to today's game. I enthusiastically recommend this book for players of all abilities, as well as parents. ENJOY..." -Dick Gould, Coach of 17 NCAA Men's Championships Director of Tennis, Stanford University For more information try the website at or see the link to the student workbook Whening Tennis Student Workbook

Noel Justice adds another regional guide to his series of important reference works that survey, describe, and categorize the projectile point and cutting tools used in prehistory by Native American peoples. This volume addresses the region of California and the Great Basin. Written for archaeologists and amateur collectors alike, the book describes over 50 types of stone arrowhead and spear points according to period, culture, and region. With the knowledge of someone trained to fashion projectile points with techniques used by the Indians, Justice describes how the points were made, used, and re-sharpened. His detailed drawings illustrate the way the Indians shaped their tools, what styles were peculiar to which regions, and how the various types can best be identified. There are hundreds of drawings, organized by type cluster and other identifying characteristics. The book also includes distribution maps and color plates that will further aid the researcher or collector in identifying specific periods, cultures, and projectile types.

"Books geographically focused on the midwestern and eastern states dominate the study of Mennonites in America. The intriguing history of Mennonites in the American West remains untold. In From Digging Gold to Saving Souls, Brian Froese introduces readers for the first time to the California Mennonite experience. Although a few Mennonites did dig for gold in the 1850s, the real story of Mennonites in California begins in the 1890s with westward migrations for fertile soil and healthy sunshine. By the mid-twentieth century, the Mennonite story in California had developed into an interesting tale of religious conservatives--traditional agrarians--finding their way in an increasingly urban and religiously pluralistic California. Some California Mennonites negotiated new identities by endorsing conservative evangelicalism; some found them in reclamations of sixteenth-century Anabaptists. Still other Mennonites found meaningful religious experience by engaging in social action and justice even when these actions appeared in "secular" forms. These emerging identities--Evangelical, Anabaptist, and secular--covered a broad spectrum, yet represented a selective retaining and discarding of Mennonite religious practices and expressions. From Digging Gold to Saving Souls touches on such topics as migration, pluralism, race, gender, pacifism, institutional construction, education, and labor conflict, all of which defined the experience of Mennonites of California. Brian Froese shows how this experience was a rich, complex, and deliberate move into modern society. In From Digging Gold to Saving Souls, he introduces readers to a dynamic people who did not simply become modern, but who chose to modernize on their own terms"--
