Saint Joseph's College professor publishes two books

Dr. Edward Rielly of Westbrook, professor of English at Saint Joseph's College, has recently published two books. The first, Sitting Bull: a Biography, was published by Greenwood Press as a part of its biography series. Rielly's work is part of a larger series designed for college undergraduate and advanced high school study.

Rielly's second recently published book is Old Whitman Loved Baseball and Other Baseball Poems. The Moon Pie Press of Westbrook published the poetry collection.

Rielly is working on several new projects during a semester-long sabbatical, including a book for the University of Nebraska Press that studies football and its ties to American culture. He has also signed a contract with Greenwood Press to write two volumes about American Indian resistance leaders, which he is researching in the Dakotas this fall.
