For her summer break from college, Nicole Thomas is ecstatic to be in beautiful Estes Park, Colorado. Family friends Virginia and Norman Parker own a resort at the foothills of Rocky Mountain National Park, and Nicole helps take on the job of cottage caretaker for two and a half months with older friend, Catherine Maine. It’s not long before Nicole meets three handsome men who will play pivotal roles in her Colorado vacation. Forest rangers Scott Thompson, Todd Wheeler, and Bill Martin are handsome and fun to be around, but Scott is the one who captures her heart. But Scott is also in love with another girl and can’t give his whole heart to Nicole. Crushed, she learns a hard lesson about the dangers of giving her heart away so quickly and resolves never to do it again. Nicole tries to soothe her heart by focusing on the bounty of beauty the park offers, from stunning wildlife to majestic mountain views. As she does so, she begins to see things in a new light. Still, romance doesn’t stay away, and Nicole contends with her emotions for the three men and their attentions to her. She sees Todd as only a friend despite his feelings for her, and Bill is more like an older brother than a love interest. Just as Nicole is beginning to think that true love will never find her, she discovers that you should never say never.
It's all in the future, but one thing I can truly say is that this is a summer to
remember, and now we are in a new season and there will be more adventures
to come.” m REMEMBER For her summer break from college, Nicole Thomas

While the Cleveland Indians are known lately more for being cellar dwellers than world champions, that wasn’t the case in 1948. Ranked by the Sporting News as the ninth-best team in baseball history, the ’48 Indians were a colorful group of guys, led by the always colorful Bill Veeck, the future Hall of Famer who was running his first team. But the Indians weren’t just well run in the front office; their team on the field was comprised of seven future Hall of Famers. Player-manager Lou Boudreau would not only lead his team to the playoffs, but would also become the first shortstop to ever win the American League’s Most Valuable Player award. He also relied on pitchers Bob Feller, Bob Lemon, and Negro leagues legend Satchel Paige (then forty-one years old), as well as second baseman Joe Gordon and right fielder Larry Doby, who followed Jackie Robinson by only a few weeks in breaking the color barrier in baseball. The Indians finished the ’48 season at 97–58 and were tied with Joe McCarthy’s Boston Red Sox, which led to the first-ever one game playoff in American League history. The Indians were victorious and would then defeat the Boston Braves in six games to win the World Series. The Monsters of Municipal Stadium is a fantastic look at one of the greatest teams ever to play the game, and at how everyone involved in this extraordinary season—from the players to management—made 1948 a memorable year for baseball and the city of Cleveland.
