Kuhkomossonuk Akonutomuwinokot: Stories Our Grandmothers Told Us Edited by Wayne Newell, Associate Editor, Robert Leavitt.
The traditional stories collected in this volume link the memories of Passamaquoddy elders to the world of today’s younger generations. The stories help us understand how Passamaquoddy community and culture have changed over the years. Connections between the generations have been weakened over the past few decades with the potential loss of the Passamaquoddy language, which is still spoken fluently by older members of the community.

The Martin Bormann Dog Care Book by Michael R. Brown
The Martin Bormann Dog Care Book takes its title from a poem written in 1970 when Richard Nixon was president. Michael Brown was finishing his dissertation on the major poets of the Harlem Renaissance while he shared an apartment in Ann Arbor with a young couple who let him sleep on their water bed while they were working in Western Michigan. These events fused when the couple brought home a puppy and a behavioralist dog training book.
Susquehanna by Michael R. Brown (ebook only)
Susquehanna focuses on the people and places along this great river, which stretches from upstate New York to the Chesapeake Bay, with particular attention to the lower Susquehanna, south of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The people in the poems are real, even if they never existed. Many should be recognizable from your home town, even if they have different names or occupations.
