Riding the Shortgrass Country: John's epic historical novel chronicling the life of Lance Roark, daredevil high school and college football star, cowboy, and decorated World War II flying ace, as told by himself in the closing days of his life in the Great Plains Country of southwest Oklahoma. Born at the dawn of a state’s history on those plains during World War I, Lance helps carve out the unforgettable story of 20th-Century America. Winston Churchill, Charles Lindbergh, Franklin D. Roosevelt, famed "Blind Orator" and Senator Thomas Gore, and teenaged Chickasaw stunt flying sensation Pearl Carter help.
Daisy's Diary: John is a history teacher, an author, a theological seminary graduate, and a student of current events. He melds all these experiences together in this unforgettable tale of contemporary America. The central characters are the Rankins, a Texas preacher’s family caught up in the danger, drama, and sense of destiny that accompany the nation’s struggle with terror and its war on Iraq. From the dynamic churches of evangelical America to the dusty, horror-filled alleys and streets of Iraq, where any step may be a soldier’s last, Daisy's Diary paints the myths and character that are the American people on a canvas as large as America itself.
