Image For BARA/CRIST ALLIANCE OH

BARA/CRIST ALLIANCE OH

Item Description
BARA/CRIST ALLIANCE OH. According to local history, General Robinson, a railroad official from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, named this Ohio town "Alliance" in 1850. Known for a short time as "The Crossing," Robinson believed that Alliance was a better name since the nation's two major railroads intersected here. The name stuck, and in 1854, the communities of Williamsport, Freedom, and Liberty incorporated as the town of Alliance. In 1889, the Village of Mount Union was annexed and Alliance became a city. Not only did the railroads help form our community, they established Alliance as a city of industry. Even though the town has remained relatively small, with approximately 23,000 citizens in 1990, industry has played a vital role in the development of Alliance. Many citizens attribute the strong leadership of the town's governing body to its industrial growth. This pictorial compilation documents the growth of the railroad and the stores and factories located along these railroad routes. Even today, the availability of trains and the intersection of key lines in Alliance is important to manufacturers. About the Author Authors Craig Bara and Lyle Crist have assembled a charming and fascinating look at the early years of Alliance. Many of the photographs were taken from the extensive collection of the Alliance Historical Society, which has received numerous donations from generations of citizens. Authors Bara and Crist also rely on the vivid accounts of Alliance from friends and relatives who knew the town well. This collection of photographs and storytelling is a wonderful gift to pass on to future generations.

MEITER BIRD IS THE WORD

Item Description
MEITER BIRD IS THE WORD: AN HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE ON THE NAMES OF NORTH AMERICAN BIRDS. More than 900 species of birds are known from North America, an avifauna made up of native year-round residents and seasonal migrants, modestly enhanced by introduced exotics and neighboring vagrants. Bird Is the Word is an unequalled compilation of the names of almost 800 of those birds and the record of how, when, where, and by whom those names were created and became parts of the history and science of North America's avifauna. This book is made up of three parts. Part I provides an introduction to the discovery and recording of North American birds by Europeans and to the scope and structure of avian taxonomy. Part II, which consists of 26 chapters and makes up most of the book, is devoted to the names of the individual species and the historical and cultural context of those names. Part III includes three appendixes, the largest of which introduces more than a hundred naturalists and other persons who participated searching for, finding, recording, naming, describing, or illustrating the birds of North America. Bird Is the Word is a rich, and readily accessible, collection of information about finding and naming the birds of North America. It is much more than a reference book; it is a journey of discovery that will enrich the reader's birding experience. About the Author Gary H. Meiter is a life-long resident of northeastern Ohio who has held an appreciation of nature, and especially birds and insects, from his earliest days growing up on his grandparent s farm. A college degree in Biology from Mount Union College and an education-focused career working in agriculture and natural history allowed continuous involvement with the outdoor world. Ten years ago Gary started building a data base that has now allowed completion of his first book Bird is the Word.

RUCCI TOO PHASED

Item Description
RUCCI TOO PHASED. Imagine waking up tomorrow morning like any other day. You make your way to the bathroom to brush your teeth and catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror. The only thing is the reflection looking back is unrecognizable. Who is that hideous person in the mirror? May 27, 1983 this would happen to me. I wouldn't see my reflection for three weeks after the accident but the trauma I suffered would take over three decades to recover from psychologically, my body was unharmed. I was ejected from the passenger seat, traveling at a high rate of speed (67mph). I would hit the highway face first as witnessed by a PA State Trooper who was approx.. 500 ft. away from the tragic event. It was his quick thinking and actions that would save my life that day. Saved for what reason I would ask myself for years. Why me? My face was completely shattered and I did not look like me nor would I ever. When I was finally aware of my surroundings, that Monday, I had no idea what happened. I was in the hospital hooked up to a respirator which made it impossible to speak. My eyes were swollen shut from the swelling, I immediately began to panic. Then I heard a calming voice, my mom. "Chrissy", she stated, "You were in an accident and are in the hospital". I had no idea what she was talking about. Too Phased is my memoir surrounding this horrible event in my life that would change not only my life but my family's as well. There would be over 30 surgical procedures to try and regain some sense of normalcy. The years going through pain and operating rooms and finally becoming a nurse myself because of what I had gone through.Our society places an enormous amount of pressure on women to fit in. You have to be beautiful and thin or somehow you are worth less. I never thought of myself as beautiful or even pretty, just average. My friends were much prettier than me but now I was absolutely hideous and that is not acceptable in our society. People would just stare at me when I first went out in public. I would hear the whispers,the laughing and see the finger pointing. Unfortunately some would just say mean things. "Get a new face" was the worst. How can a perfect stranger just go by me and say such mean things? How I survived all of this is still a mystery. I was in denial for quite a long time in the beginning and then I lived my life as a very angry person...this led to drinking to excess. I never thought I could or would be happy ever again. Even after becoming an OR nurse, my dream after the surgery was almost done. I wasn't living, I was just trying to get through each day as it came, never caring about consequences. It took over three decades for me to heal from the psychological trauma that came with the accident. I have healed and telling my story in hopes to help others to never give up. We can all contribute to society and try and make it a better place before we have to say the final goodbye.
