Paperback / 216 pages / 0-941214-12-5 / $5.95
Peterson has selected stories by fifteen writers, which all ring true to experience; even the inspirational ones are not trite. The emphasis is on the struggle of intelligent individuals to achieve harmony and a sense of moral integrity in an environment that all too often opposes such goals. Contributing authors include: Wayne Carver, Kevin Cassity, R. A. (Robert Alan) Christmas, Dennis Clark, Kent Farnsworth, Sibyl Johnston, Bruce W. Jorgensen, Eileen Gibbons Kump, Lynne Larson, Donald R. Marshall, Joseph Peterson, Karen Rosenbaum, Linda Sillitoe, and David Lane Wright.
