Morgans, James Patrick

Comments from the author about writing: I have had two books published by McFarland & Co. The books are on the Underground Railroad in Iowa and the Underground Railway along the Western Frontier.  My books have basically been about Iowa, yet my publisher markets books primary to academic and scholarly markets all over the nation and the world. My books are in the libraries at Harvard, Yale, Notre Dame, New York City Public Library System, Cambridge University in England, Shanghai Library, Shanghai,China and Zurich,Switzerland to name a few. I have also written over 150 magazine articles on business, agribusiness, and history. Some of the publications have appeared in are Farm Journal, Dental Economics, Omaha World-Herald, Small Business Magazine and Rural Missouri. I currently have two book contracts: one for another book on the Underground Railroad in Iowa to be published in 2012; and the other on General Grenville Dodge and the 4th Iowa Volunteer Infantry during the Civil War to be published in 2014.
