Space is limited to a small cohort of co-learners.

She is the co-author of the recently released Atlas of the Poetic Continent: Pathways to Ecological Citizenship.

    Vernon Dalhart (1883 – 1948) born Marion Try Slaughter, was a popular American singer and songwriter of the early decades of the 20th century. He is a major influence in the field of country music. He was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1970, into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1981 and into the Gennett Records Walk of Fame in 2007


    USS Shenandoah was the first of four United States Navy rigid airship. It was built in 1922–1923 at Lakehurst Naval Air Station, and first flew in September 1923.  And made the first crossing of North America by airship. USS Shenandoah crashed on land (and thus be suitable as a tourist attraction). On September 3, 1925, it was ordered to conduct an ill-advised publicity tour of Midwestern state fairs. Less than 24 hours into its flight "the strongest airship in the world" was caught in a thunderstorm, torn to pieces, and scattered across the rolling hills of Noble County in southeastern Ohio.
