From the Author:

H is for Holocaust is a chronology + lexicon. It also includes articles written by the author, photos taken by the author, such as the last building of the Warsaw ghetto before it was torn town, specially drawn maps, computer graphics of holocaust statistics, and an annotated bibliography of more than 100 entries. All aspects of the Holocaust as well as the latest information pertaining to this black period in history is brought forth in order to provide a greater understanding of the complicated events that led to this unparalled human catastrophe.

La Strada is an autobiographcal account of the author's travels from shortly after his birth to the present. They begin in the United States, Canada and Mexico and include his extensive trips through eastern and western Europe and Israel. Included are accounts of his hitch hiking to New York City from Detroit when he was 17, the Six Day War, two months behind the Iron Curtain, the opening of the Berlin Wall, the collapse of Communism in Eastern Europe, biking across the Alps of Switzerland, and skiing the slopes of Zinal, Switzerland. Cars, trains, boats, planes, walking, skiing, and biking are part of the saga that makes La Strada unique. Though the book is written with a slight touch of satire it concludes on a serious note with examples of environmental degradation that the author observed in the European Alps and in the province of British Colombia, Canada. Included are photos taken by the author that illustrate the text.
