Gene Baade Offers More Books on the West

Ishi

Ishi, "the last of the wild Indians," in 1914.


Item 110 is Chuck Williams' Mount St. Helens. A Changing Landscape, published in 1980. "Changing landscape" is an understatement. That year, the entire top of the mountain was blown off by its powerful volcano. $30.

Here is a book about which Baade admits, "...the only thing ‘West' about this is that it takes place on the west side of Lake Michigan..." Item 62 is 1963's Run to Daylight, by legendary football coach Vince Lombardi. Lombardi led his Green Bay Packers to five NFL championships and victories in the first two Super Bowls. He died just three years after retiring from his position as Packers' coach after that second Super Bowl. $95.
