Joseph Holbrook, Mormon Pioneer, a Journal
Samuel Lewis, the youngest of seven children born to African American working class parents, and Hamilton Armstrong III, the only son of a wealthy white family and local leader of the Ku Klux Klan, grew up in the same small Virginia town, but lived worlds apart. They meet through mischief and despite the racial barriers of the pre-Civil Rights era, a life-long friendship is formed. Both driven by a passion for writing, they begin journalism careers at different New York newspapers, experience dangerous, as well as raunchy times in Vietnam and enter the sunset years of their careers at the same Atlanta newspaper where they are dueling political columnists: Sam pens the conservative viewpoint and Ham provides the liberal perspective. Unexpected excitement enters their lives as a bomb meant for Sam kills a colleague in the midst of their coverage of Barack Obamas rise to the presidency. Brothers under the same skin, Same Same sketches the lives of two talented journalists, one white, one black, in a novel that is part thriller and part morality tale. Doug Smith, a ground breaking reporter, undoubtedly lived the themes echoed in this book and he skillfully weaves a tale with a message that is both timely and timeless. -Eleanor Clift, Newsweek and Daily Beast contributor and panelist with The McLaughlin Group Doug Smith has written a fetching race-drama that flips the script on group assumption about life, love and politics. There is energy here, start to finish; and the tension puts the reader on his toes, then back on his heels. The author is quite savvy about the newspaper industry, mindful of its decline and guarded about newspapers way forward. But it is race politics in America, glancing off White House politics, where the novel takes on currency and makes itself a worthy book for our time. -Les Payne, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and author People say newspapers are dying. Well, Doug Smiths new rollercoaster novel certainly sends them out with a bang. Murder, sex, race, politics, scandal--all set in the newsroom. I love it! -Tony Kornheiser, co-anchor of ESPNs Pardon the Interruption

Davenport
Native Americans inhabited the gentle sloping bluffs along the Mississippi River on which Davenport now sits. The peoples who lived on the fertile soil of eastern Iowa were forced into selling their land for pennies to white settlers. From the original survey of the town in 1836 throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries, progress was steady as steamboats navigated the dangerous rapids of the Mississippi River, and settlers came to battle extreme Midwest winters and plow the unbroken prairie. In 1856, the first bridge to span the river was completed here, heralding the locomotive from the east and becoming of major importance to the movement west. German and other immigrant families came in droves and with them the development of major national industrial centers for agriculture and its implements, lumber and building material, alcohol and tobacco, and numerous other products. Davenport has been a town of unusual and fascinating history.

Goon
Driven with a burning desire to make something of himself, Doug Smith calls upon his only marketable skills--those honed as an amateur boxer--and despite not learning to skate until the age of 19, punches his way into the world of professional hockey. Join Doug "The Thug" Smith during his unlikely journey as a minor-league hockey enforcer, the most unique and peculiar job in all of sport, as he takes on all comers to protect his teammates from opposing tough guys, wins a championship ring, and climbs to the second-best hockey league in the world. Smith, the directionless, wayward wanderer, desperately searching, defeats impossible odds to succeed in the riotous world minor-league hockey, which lends a measure of purpose and meaning to his life. And while the enforcer role is currently being removed from the game of hockey, underdog stories never go out of style, and the best ones get made into Hollywood movies. Literally fighting to become more than a common street ruffian, Smith transforms himself into a respected and productive member of his community, and the subject of a cult-classic motion picture.
