Camas Prairie Railroad
by Robert Perret & Amy Thompson

Available in: print

A new addition to the Arcadia Publishing’s Images of Rail series.  You may recognize this publisher from their other series that showcase and connect us with place and region-specific history. They also have a book on Moscow and Pullman from their Images of America series.  The Camas Prairie Railroad was a 300-mile long section of railroad that transported wheat and lumber to the greater system of rails reaching all the way across the entire United States and was a joint project between the Union Pacific and Northern Pacific Railroads.  While this entire historical section of railway is no longer in use, it leaves behind a historical museum of artifacts that are peeks into the past.


Yoke: My Yoga of Self-Acceptance
by Jessamyn Stanleycover of YOKE: My Yoga of Self -Acceptance

Available in: print, eBook

People find their way to the yoga mat for many reasons, each taking a different path whether spiritually, physically, culturally, or because of a particular style or teacher.  Yoga is not limited to the limber, fit and flexible but also for those seeking connection, deep meditation, strengthening, healing and mindfulness.  Jessamyn’s book is a deeply honest memoir and also a guide to practice in new ways and for creating space for intersectional yoga that is accessible to all bodies while also addressing issues like racism, cultural appropriation, materialism and a tool for self-love.  Yoga is so much more than a sun salutation or downward dog, but about what can be learned on the mat that applies to life.
