RELAYS have been aptly termed "silent sentinels." And they are silent sentinels. They stand on duty twenty-four hours a day, every day in the year, and— year in and year out. They guard thousands of dollars worth of property and equipment. They prevent service interruptions and costly shutdowns. They are really and truly the silent sentinels of the electrical industry. Automatic control is a reality. Supervisory control has been introduced. The inter - connection of systems is no longer an experiment. Service is now reliable and continuous. All of these are attributes of super-power— a new era in the electrical industry. And they were made possible through Westinghouse pioneering in the relay art. Not only has Westinghouse introduced most of the present-day relays, but this Company has also developed various schemes and methods of relay application. Westinghouse relays and relay practice have played an important role in the progress of the electrical industry. It is the purpose of Westinghouse to maintain and extend this leadership to meet the exacting requirements of the future.

Artillery played an important and perhaps decisive role at the July 1863 Battle of Gettysburg. Although many hundreds of books have been published on the battle, few have focused on the artillery. Silent Sentinels fills this flaring gap in the literature. This well-written and illustrated study was designed for both the casual battlefield visitor and the serious scholar. The former will use Silent Sentinels to tour the battlefield, browse existing guns, ponder the many photographs, and learn more about artillery in general; the latter will find the extensive primary sources, diagrams, appendices of numbers and losses, and informative discussion of organization and tactics an indispensable reference resource. Silent Sentinels discusses in detail every gun-type used at Gettysburg, the equipment needed to operate the guns, their organization, and the tactics employed by both Union and Confederate artillery men. In addition to a history of the artillery and how it was used, the author includes chapters on the park’s collection of 436 guns, the pieces on display at the field today, how to identify the different types of cannon, and how to identify the date and place of manufacture. Silent Sentinels concludes with a driving tour of the battlefield, specially designed with the artillery in mind. This lovely historical guide, complete with detailed endnotes and bibliography, will be a welcomed addition to the growing Gettysburg titles.

Silent Sentinels is the long awaited sequel to “The Mourning Doves.” Like Doves, Silent Sentinels involves murder, kidnapping, blackmail, and a deep and abiding love affair. Jason Borseau, the co-owner of KCOY Radio Station in Yuma, Arizona, is now the co-owner and CEO of KSOL-TV in Phoenix, where the story begins. Jason is married to Kathryn Whittaker, the love of his life. The year is 1961. A serial killer is targeting the west side of Phoenix, Arizona. Five young women, alleged prostitutes, all minorities, have gone missing, their bodies discovered in the desert, ravaged by the killer and savaged by wild animals. Now, another girl has disappeared. Jason Borseau’s good friend Christian Grayson, a handsome, light-skinned Negro and Pulitzer Prize–winning investigator, has worked for Jason for four years. For some time, Christian has had a hunch that something isn’t right about the way the City is doing business. Jason has doubts, but over the years, he’s learned to trust his colleague’s instincts. Jason instructs Christian to go ahead, and look into it, but urges him to tread softly through the City’s hallowed halls. Meanwhile, the “Ladies of the Night Murders” investigation is going nowhere. Christian is certain it’s not a priority with the police, because the victims are minorities, and prostitutes. He’s determined to unmask the killer. Unfortunately, he becomes the target. When Christian is found unconscious and badly beaten on the street in front of Jason’s estate, Jason calls his old friend, Alan Sheffield, Arizona’s Attorney General, the State’s, “Top Cop.” Together they begin an investigation that will expose a conspiracy that runs deeper than anyone could have imagined, leading them into the darkest regions of human behavior. This book is enthralling in its emotional aspects, brilliant in its love story, an extremely thrilling mystery. Silent Sentinels is a whodunit that keeps you guessing until the very end.

Whether dotting the coastline, guarding the banks of the Kennebec or defending the Canadian border, Maine's many forts have sheltered its towns and people since the seventeenth century. Both Fort Kent and Fort Fairfield were built after the War of 1812 during the Aroostook War, when hostilities raged between Mainers and British Canadians over the region's rich timber stands. Portland Harbor's Fort Preble became embroiled in the Civil War when a Confederate raider tried--and failed--to steal a ship from its waters. In the twentieth century, Maine's preservationists protected many of these citadels, including Fort Knox in Penobscot Bay, the largest and most elaborate of all Maine's forts. Join local author Harry Gratwick as he uncovers stories of adventure and bravery from the forts of Maine.

Silent Sentinels of Ranthambhore

* Tiger populations the world over are endangered* A unique look at individual tigers and family groups* Written and photographed by a former government official, actress and photographer well-versed in Ranthambhore's more remote locationsRanthambhore National Park is a vast wildlife reserve in Rajasthan, northern India. It is a former royal hunting ground and home to tigers, leopards and marsh crocodiles. Its landmarks - both natural and manmade - include the imposing 10th-century Ranthambhore Fort, the Ganesh Mandir temple, and Padam Talao Lake, known for its abundance of water lilies. It is one of the world's finest places to view wildlife. The Park is also a crucial tiger habitat. As Rhajastan's former Minister for Tourism, as well as for Forests and the Environment, Bina Kak had unprecedented access to the Park. There she focused on individual tigers, tigresses, and tiger families. Unlike other photography books on the Park, this book focuses on the unique traits - or personalities - of single animals or groups, for example how a male tiger mothered his cubs when they were separated from the tigress. Her stunning photographs include views not easily accessible or are completely unavailable to other photographers, and will certainly appeal to conservationists, environmentalists, travelers, those interested in nature photography, or anyone engaged with the future of these magnificent animals.
