Won the Alumni Association's Faculty Professional Development Award, 2006. The author of seventeen books, Mr. Freeman’s own favorite fiction titles are "Ishi’s Journey, from the Center to the Edge of the World" (Naturegraph), "Never the Same River Twice" (Charles B. McFadden), and "Irish Wake:In Loving Memory of Us All" (amazon.com).

"Philadelphia Inquirer" Books Editor Frank Wilson, in his Jan., ’06 review of the reissued "Ishi’s Journey" as his Sunday “Editor’s Pick,” said: “If this novel doesn’t make you smile and occasionally move you to tears, then you are in need of a heart transplant. It is a wise and wonderful book.”
