About Us

19th Century Publications is Chuck Dodd's “retirement” company, although he has been busier since he retired than when he was “working.”

(Our vocabularies should recognize two types of careers: a "Paid Career" during which we get a paycheck, and an "UnPaid Career" during which we get satisfaction but not a paycheck. Paid Careers are necessary for most of us; but UnPaid Careers are a lot more fun.)

Chuck has been a writer all his professional life, working in the high-tech world of Silicon Valley. Now, in retirement, he brings his skills to his primary interest — The California Trail — and things west and western.
