The Promise Basket
A stone when it’s thrown can damage, can break, but nothing can shatter the promise I make. So begins the poem a mother writes on a scrap of paper. She wraps the paper around a stone and places it in a basket to give to her daughter on her first birthday. They are poor, but the mother is determined that gifts will be given when gifts need giving. She keeps her promise, and the Promise Basket, too. Every time there is a need for gifts, the mother finds a pretty stone to tie up with paper and ribbon, and gives it to her daughter in the basket. She continues the tradition over the years until her daughter has a baby of her own... The love between a mother and her daughter is celebrated in this lyrical story from Bill Richardson, featuring colorful illustrations by Slavka Kolesar.

Between Worlds
Bill Richardson, the governor of New Mexico, may be the most charismatic figure in the Democratic Party today and one of its best natural politicians whose name isn't Bill Clinton. He is the man Colin Powell has called for advice, and the man George Stephanopoulos once called the Red Adair of diplomacy in homage to his ability to put out international fires. He has been nominated four times for the Nobel Peace Prize and is counted as one of our most knowledgeable politicians on Iraq and Saddam Hussein; on Afghanistan, the Taliban, and Al-Qaeda; on North Korea; on energy policy; on Latin American affairs; on domestic politics; and on Hispanic America. Richardson's background as the son of an American businessman father and a Mexican mother has offered him an unusual starting point from which to seek a life in public service, but one of his most interesting roles has been that of global troubleshooter. What he has to say about how to negotiate to get what you want shows his true colors: He can be blunt, but charming; tough, but respectful; realistic, but hopeful. Through his work as a hostage negotiator sitting across the table from the likes of Saddam Hussein, Fidel Castro, and many others-as well as his toil on Capitol Hill, in the United Nations, and New Mexico's state government-he has learned the vital importance of preparation: know as much as possible about your adversary; test your partner's truthfulness; know how much you can concede; never lie and always be direct. Between Worlds is the surprising story of one of our most seasoned and captivating national figures.

Tea Party Talk
Ever found yourself with your back against a wall, trying to disengage yourself from a one-sided debate with one of your liberal acquaintances? How many times have you been irrefutably right on a matter and yet unable to convince the other person? Tired of being "shot down" in arguments by your "slightly to the left" friends? If so, this book will teach, empower and equip you to win these discussions and, at the same time, not lose your friends. In fact, you could even convert some of them. Sound impossible? Not at all if you are willing to practice what you learn and improve your ability to communicate. You can be a more effective spokesman for our Nation if you really wish to be. Bill has a unique ability to deconstruct the ploys that leftists use to change the discussion and distort facts to put conservatives on the defensive. I know that what you learn in this book will be helpful as you seek to convince your neighbors to support constitutional, fiscally responsible government in the upcoming presidential election. Foreword by Pat Nolan, California State Assembly Republican Leader [1984 - 1988] Not one to sit idly by and watch his country slip away on a path towards socialism, H.L. "Bill" Richardson became a man of action. He won election to the California State Senate where he served for 22 years. He fought efforts to weaken California's criminal laws and successfully fought to reinstate the death penalty, to crack down on child molesters and drug dealers. He defeated a sitting Supreme Court Chief Justice and two Associate Justices who were soft on crime. o spread the word, Richardson wrote thousands of articles and recorded as many radio spots. He founded four very successful political action committees including Gun Owners of America, Gun Owners of California, Law and Order Campaign Committee, and Free Market Political Action Committee. But, that wasn't enough! Bill wrote Slightly to the Right, Confrontational Politics, and What Makes You Think We Read The Bills, books dedicated to give today's conservatives the tools to take action themselves.

The First Little Bastard to Call Me Gramps
Bill Richardson, winner of the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour and former CBC Radio personality, delivers a "fresh and frisky” poetic take on transitioning into life as a retiree and living through the golden years. In their frank and witty delivery, Richardson's illustrated retirement rhymes for the hoary-headed do not just playfully reveal the inevitable weakening that afflicts the mind and body as the years wear on, they also cast light on the ageless, exuberant spirit that too often remains hidden inside. From retirement homes, cruises, and grandchildren to liver spots, memory problems, and geriatric sex, Richardson's candid reflections on the trials, tribulations, and humiliations of growing old are funny, sharp, and irreverent. Illustrated by award-winning artist Roxanna Bikadoroff, The First Little Bastard to Call Me Gramps is an essential companion to the graces, and disgraces, of ageing.
