Recently Read: By Bill Dahl

Okay…okay…I get emails every week asking me what I am reading. So here’s a list of what I have recently read (MOST are for research regarding a book I am currently writing…(Nope – won’t tell so don’t ask – it’s a two year project – look for it in LATE 2018):


 

  1. The House of Morgan – An American Banking Dynasty and the Rise of Modern Finance – Honestly, a historical treasure. Winner of the National Book Award.

2. America’s Bank: The Epic Struggle to Create the Federal Reserve – by Roger Lowenstein – I adore anything Roger writes.

3. Origins of the CrashThe Great Bubble and Its Undoing – by Roger Lowenstein – An uncharacteristically harsh critique from the pen of Lowenstein. However, for its historical relevance for me, another treasure from Roger.

4. The Empire Express – Building the First Transcontinental Railroad – by  David Haward Bain – LOVE LOVE LOVE this author and writer. WOW! What a story by a splendid story teller. This book will absolutely captivate you via the author’s research and his uncanny ability to share the personalities of the principal players and their interactions.

5. Jay Cooke’s Gamble – The Northern Pacific Railroad, The Sioux and the Panic of 1873 – by M. John Lubetkin – A Tremendous Story that will fill in details of American History that you had been completely unaware of. Superb writer and researcher.

 

6. The Panic of 1819 – Reactions and Policies by Murray N. Rothbard – A Political science and economic policy classic. I truly enjoyed it.

7. New ERA – Reflections on The Human and Natural History of Central Oregon by Jarold Ramsey – A priceless contribution to the cultural landscape of Central Oregon. ADORED IT!!!

8. East of the Cascades – Philip Brogan – A historical and sociological (geological) classic as it relates to Central Oregon.

More to come in my next post…some of my reading is currently 6-700 page volumes with microscopic print so it takes more time to complete them.

ENJOY!


 

Winter Photography

A rather unique winter in Central Oregon with some very cold, snowy weather that has endured for a few months. I hope you enjoy the images I captured below.


 

I have created two photo albums for these images:

CLICK on one of the two the LINK(s) below – then – click SLIDESHOW (FLICKR Photo Album – upper right corner) or click on the first image you see (Google Photo Album) then click the arrows to move to the next image. These images are VERY high quality and are NOT intended to be viewed on a mobile phone – use a computer monitor, your HDTV, Mac, iPad, notebook, or a laptop.
