These are sketches about the life and times that Keating travelled.
His first book was RIDING THE FINCE LINES: Riding the Fences that Define the Margins of Religious Tolerance; he is joined by five co-authors: Muslim scholar, Jewish rabbi, Catholic priest, Protestant minister, and Buddhist minister.
Keating's second book, BUFFALO GAP FRONTIER, is a personal historical account of the settling of the Last Frontier in South Dakota and Wyoming. He is joined by two co-authors: a pioneer rancher, and a Lakota from the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.
His third book, 1960s DECADE OF DISSENT: The Way We Were, is a historical novel written about the times on the U.C. Berkeley when the author was a student.
