Catch and Release: An Oregon Life in Politics
In 1974, at the age of thirty-two, Les AuCoin became the first Democrat to win a US House seat in Oregon’s First District. He was one of the post-Watergate reformers who shook up an insular, autocratic Congress and led fights for affordable housing, wilderness protection, abortion rights, and nuclear arms control. Catch and Release offers a revealing glimpse behind the scenes of congressional life, as lived by the author, who assesses his own strengths and foibles with humility and candor.

The Violin Maker
It is 1986.
The world is sinking into the chill of Nuclear Winter. And an ancient evil–the Spanish Inquisition, with all of its horrors–once again stalks the earth.
In the midst of this terror, a mysterious ancient violin captivates Joseph Davidson, drawing him 500 years back in time.
Pursued by agents of the Inquisition, Joseph and his lover Rachel must solve the puzzle of his hidden heritage–and a secret prophecy to save their dying world.
With their love in jeopardy, and their lives in deadly peril, the violin calls out its siren song, leading them on a dangerous quest across the globe–and back through time.
The Violin Maker by Glenn J. Hill unravels dangerous puzzles within a compelling romantic mystery that spans centuries.
