Self-Published,. (2015). Our Depression : A Play in Nine Scenes. Retrieved from

The frustration, fear and search for answers to the economic disaster that was America's great depression. A common man's insight into why we do what we do.

Presented as a play for the stage, this is a nuanced and absorbing discussion of human nature and its role in why depressions occur. Although inspired by the American depression of the 1930s, many insights are relevant today. The volume also includes several poems, largely vignettes of the American Southwest, palpable in their authenticity as written by a colonel in the US Cavalry who fought in the Spanish-American war.
