In this biography of Max Evans, learn why Charles Champlin, Entertainment Arts editor emeritus, Los Angeles Times said, "Max Evans is one of these guys you can take anywhere . . . and still be ashamed of him."
Kopecky's journals take us back to the beginnings of New Buffalo, one of the most successful of the communes that dotted the country in the 1960s and 1970s, where he and his comrades encountered magic, wisdom, a mix of people, the Peyote Church, planting, and hard winters.
Madam Millie contains sordid details and frank language that will make many readers blush. It is unvarnished language, as recorded directly from Millie by Max Evans over a period of almost twenty years. It presents a complete picture of the business of prostitution as it was practiced in the west from the late 1920s to the mid 1970s, told by the most successful madam in the business.

Pedro Romero de Terreros, the first Count of Regla, was born in Spain in 1710, but when he was twenty-one, his parents sent him to live with an uncle in New Spain to assume control of the family's businesses. Edith Couturier uses Regla's career to address the growing social tensions of the eighteenth century in New Spain.
