Campfire Stories

Rick Steber

The storyteller spins a web of fantasy while the campfire sends a shower of sparks leaping into the night sky to drift among the ancient stars. It is in this manner that the history of mankind has been passed from one generation to the next. In North America the native people formed their cultures and spiritual beliefs through stories. In today’s world it might appear that campfire stories can no longer compete with movies and television. But no special effect can ever come close to the power and impact of human imagination.

This book is full of short stories about the Wild West. Watch the faces of your listeners and know the value and significance of keeping alive our time-honored traditions of oral history.

Loggers – Volume 7

Rick Steber

Logging in North America began with the arrival of European colonists in the 1600’s.In 1869, when Lumberman Samuel Wilkeson first saw the Western forests he wrote “Oh! What timber! These tress so enchain the sense of the grand and so enchant the sense of the beautiful that I am loth to depart. Forests in which you cannot ride a horse — forests into which you cannot see, and which are almost dark under a bringt midday sun — such forests containing firs, cedars, pine, spruce and hemlock — forests surpassing the woods of all the rest of the globe in their size, quantity and quality of the timber. Here can be found great trees, monarchs to whom all worshipful men inevitable lift their hats.” A great book about the history of loggers and logging in the United States.
