The Lake Shore Electric Railway Story

by Herbert H. Harwood Jr. Robert S. Korach

From 1901 to 1938 the Lake Shore Electric claimed to be--and was considered by many--"The Greatest Electric Railway in the United States." It followed the shore of Lake Erie, connecting Cleveland and Toledo with a high-speed, limited-stop service and pioneered a form of intermodal transportation three decades before the rest of the industry. To millions of people the bright orange electric cars were an economical and comfortable means of escaping the urban mills and shops or the humdrum of rural life. In summers during the glory years there were never enough cars to handle the crowds. After reaching its peak in the early 1920s, however, the Lake Shore Electric suffered the fate of most of its sister lines: it was now competing with automobiles, trucks, and buses and could not rival them in convenience. The Lake Shore Electric Railway Story tells the story of this fascinating chapter in interurban transportation, including the missed opportunities that might have saved this railway.

Gluten-Free Bread

by Marc Alier / María José Casañ Nadia Hleb

One day you find out you have to adopt a gluten-free diet - or someone in your life does. So, you wonder: What's gluten? Where is it found and how do I avoid it? How do I make gluten-free bread, rolls, pizza, cakes, crepes, muffins and pastries at home? What ingredients can I use? Is gluten-free bread just as nutritious as normal bread? Should I use commercial bread mixes, or is it better to make my own? Why? The authors of Gluten-Free Bread had these same questions on their minds. This book is their answer. The book has two parts. In part one, they address gluten in the diet, where it's found, how to avoid it and above all, some alternative products and their properties. They identify and analyze nutritional facts of ingredients (types of flours, additives, yeasts and rising agents) that make gluten-free bread and pastries. They also look at how these ingredients affect the final product, how they can be combined and in what proportions. The second part focuses on the kitchen: they present techniques and tricks for gluten-free cooking, and 15 recipes for gluten-free breads, pizzas, crepes, savory tarts, cakes, muffins (cupcakes) and pastries. They offer alternatives for each recipe, including processes, tools (bread maker, mixer, kneading by hand) and types of flour that you can use to create your own variations.

That night, Morgan gave her some of his blood so she could survive her injuries. He could heal her thanks to his lycanthropy, and their link was thus forged.
