It was Jan. 16 of 2013 at about 7 p.m. when Lewiston teacher John Robison almost lost his life. He was headed into Lincoln to deliver groceries to a son when another driver collided with his car, severely injuring him. He still
can't remember the accident, but he has its scars that he will have to live with. One foot was rammed through the floor board and his shoulder was damaged. He needed reconstructive surgery on his face and he nearly
lost an eye. The right ankle was broken, the tibia which is connected to it was broken in 14 places

Famous People in American History is another series he has donated. Books that cover economics, terrorist attacks, a series called Citizens and Their Government, and books that cover character.
