The Cactus Primer Book Description :

The Cactus Primer presents the amateur cactophile with an excellent introduction to cactus biology and provides the informed reader with an invaluable summary of the last forty years' research.

Operation KE Book Description :

Explores the air combat that attended the Japanese evacuation of Guadalcanal in early 1943. The traditional view holds that the Japanese got away with the initiative largely because the Americans let them; the US Pacific high command felt it was not worth the effort to try and stop them.
