         As publishers, we have not been very prolific, but we have treated every endeavor as a fine work of art, finely crafting each element of production before releasing a title as a limited edition to be treasured by collectors and lovers of fine books alike. From the early years, our subject matter centered around the rich heritage of the American West; but, then deviated a bit to commemorate a new era of pioneers with release of Avian Dreamers as a tribute to the adventurous men and women who awed crowds with their chilling performances of exhibition flying, barnstorming, stunt flying, speed racing, and global journeys which opened the door to a new era of travel. The remarkable personal stories of these aviation pioneers, richly blended with historic photo images and original artwork, span the Glory Years of Flight, a rare treat for anyone who loves great adventure or thrills to the freedom of the open skyway.
