Published to coincide with the History Channel’s Hatfields and McCoys mini­ series, a new look at the most infamous family feud from the New York Times bestselling author of Kinflicks A few days later, as Harmon McCoy was drawing water from the well in his yard, a bullet from the woods zinged past him. He ran inside, stuffed supplies into his saddlebags, grabbed his rifle, and limped up the hill to this cave, where he had been hiding out for several days now. Standing at the mouth of the cave, his thirst sated, he started coughing. . . . He was freezing. At least at home he would have a chance of getting well before having to deal with the Wildcats again. He had spent this entire war either sick or injured—first his infected gunshot wounds, then his fractured leg, now pneumonia. What next? He started down the path toward home, dragging his aching leg. Below him he spotted two men among the bare branches of the winter trees, their features indistinct in the forest gloom. As he threw aside his blanket and raised his rifle, gunshots sounded up the hill, and an explosion bloomed inside his chest.

Blood Feud The Hatfields and the McCoys: The Epic Story of Murder and Vengeance Lisa Alther 978-0-7627-7918-5 ■ May 2012 $24.95 US/$27.50 CAN ■ US, Canada, and open market Cloth 6 x 9 ■ 304 pp ■ 12/CTN b&w photos ■ Lyons Press HISTORY

America’s most notorious family feud began in 1865 with the murder of a Union McCoy soldier by a Confederate Hatfield relative. More than a decade later Randolph McCoy accused a Hatfield of stealing his hogs. This accusation triggered years of violence and retribution, including a Romeo-and-Juliet interlude that led to the death of a young McCoy woman and her baby. In a drunken brawl, three of her brothers killed a Hatfield, so the Hatfields tied them up and shot them dead. McCoy posses hijacked some of this firing squad across state lines to stand trial, while those still free burned down Randolph McCoy’s cabin and shot two of his children in a botched attempt to defeat the posses. Legal wrangling ensued, until the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Kentucky could try the captured West Virginian Hatfields. Seven went to prison, and one, mentally disabled, yelled, “The Hatfields made me do it!” as he was hanged. But the feud didn’t end there. Its legend continues to have an enormous impact on the popular imagination and the region. Here is a fascinating new look at the infamous H ­ atfield-McCoy feud. Lisa Alther was born in the Appalachian town of Kingsport, Tennessee, and is the author of six New York Times bestselling novels, including Kinflicks, which have appeared in fifteen languages and sold over 6 million copies worldwide. She divides her time among Tennessee, New York City, and Vermont. Her father’s family is related by marriage to the Fighting McCoys. 1

Genius is not just about intelligence and aptitude, it’s also a word that embodies our inner soul, nature, or character. In this illuminating book, a former principal and father shares heartwarming stories and wise advice that offers a rare insight into children and the process of education. The Genius in Every Child celebrates the moments in the lives of children, their parents, and their teachers. The stories of unique characters in action illustrate some of the principles of education and the disciplines we need to be good stewards of our children’s character and intellect. The vignettes provide both delight and enjoyment in the miracle of it all, and perspective and solace in the difficulty of it all, encouraging parents and teachers to work hand-in-hand. This book urges parents to focus on the long run, entrusting the trials, struggles, and sufferings of the short run to the kids. It proposes a shift in focus from test scores to enthusiasm, from perfect behavior to learning from mistakes, from measuring up to making something of yourself, from independence to interdependence, from goodness to integrity, from fear to love. The value of this experience to hundreds of children, parents, and teachers derives from the depth of Rick Ackerly’s perception and the subtlety of his understanding. He offers perspective and guidance on a wide range of challenges faced by parents of today’s school-aged children, including: self-confidence, discipline, boundary-setting, building character, integrity, taking responsibility, facing challenges, handling disappointment, peer pressure, reading, testing, homework, academic achievement, failure, and success.

The national best seller about the most colorful and incorrigible pot smugglers of the Reagan era—a nonviolent party of drug-laden yachts, gorgeous women, and millions of dollars of weed—and the opening volley of the War on Drugs that brought them down “The adventures, the long-gone economy, and the sting that ultimately brought them down and changed US drug policy are meticulously documented and lucidly spun. . . . Part New Yorker feature—part Jimmy Buffet song. . . . The result is adventuresome, lavish, informative fun.” —GQ

“[A] rollicking story, Ryan manages to pack in one amusing tale after another. . . . Jackpot is a rip-roaring good read.”

“High times on the high seas: Investigative reporter Ryan recounts the glory days of dope smuggling and their terrible denouement. . . . A well-told tale of true crime that provides a few good arguments for why it should not be a crime at all.” —Kirkus Reviews

In the late 1970s and early 1980s, a cadre of freewheeling, Southern pot smugglers lived at the crossroads of Miami Vice and a Jimmy Buffett song. In less than a decade, these irrepressible adventurers unloaded nearly a billion dollars worth of marijuana and hashish through the eastern seaboard’s marshes. Then came their undoing: Operation Jackpot, one of the largest drug investigations ever launched and an opening volley in Ronald Reagan’s War on Drugs. In Jackpot, author Jason Ryan takes us back to the heady days before drug smuggling was synonymous with deadly gunplay. During this golden age of marijuana trafficking, the country’s most prominent kingpins were a group of wayward and fun-loving Southern gentlemen who forsook college educations to sail drug-laden luxury sailboats across the Mediterranean, the Atlantic, and the Caribbean. Les Riley, Barry Foy and their comrades eschewed violence as much as they loved pleasure, and it was greed, lust, and disaster at sea that ultimately caught up with them, along with the law. Based on years of research and interviews with imprisoned and recently released smugglers and the law enforcement agents who tracked them down, Jackpot is sure to become a classic story from America’s controversial Drug Wars. Jason Ryan is a South Carolina journalist and former staff reporter for the State newspaper. He lives with his wife and daughter in Charleston. 4

On the eve of Broadway’s 35thanniversary production of Annie, the story of the man who’s been making stars out of strays for three decades “[Bill] can do anything you ask, has enormous love for and control of the animals, is kind to them and to humans. He is the best. The one and only.” —Mike Nichols

“Bill Berloni is a master of his profession. His experience and patience are welcome in any rehearsal room.” —Susan Stroman

“[A] treat for animal lovers and theater fiends.” —

“A canine critique would insist it’s ‘four paws up’ for Broadway Tails.” —Houston Chronicle

Broadway Tails Heartfelt Stories of Rescued Dogs Who Became Showbiz Superstars Bill Berloni and Jim Hanrahan Foreword by Bernadette Peters 978-0-7627-8308-3 ■ September 2012 $19.95 US/$21.95 CAN ■ World English ■ Paper 71/2 x 91/4 ■ 256 pp ■ 12/CTN Previous edition: Paper 06/2008; 978-1-59921-353-8 full-color and b&w photos ■ Lyons Press PETS

The sun always comes out tomorrow for the shelter animals Bill Berloni rescues and then trains to meet the demands of the stage. Berloni was a nineteen-year-old theater apprentice more then three decades ago when he was offered his first big break: find and train a dog to appear in the original production of the Broadway hit Annie. Defying the odds, he rescued a down-on-his-luck dog from a local shelter and, together, they redefined what animal performers could do. Since then Berloni and his trainers have provided animals for hundreds of films, commercials, and television shows as well as live theater all over North America. In this heartwarming book, he tells the true stories of “throw-away” animals who came back to work with some of entertainment’s biggest names, names like Bernadette Peters, Sarah Jessica Parker, Mike Nichols, Meryl Streep, Natalie Portman, and many more. This updated edition includes an account of Berloni’s search for the newest Sandy to star with everyone’s favorite red-headed orphan. Bill Berloni received the 2011 Tony Honor for Excellence in Theater, the first ever given to an animal trainer. He has trained animals for live performances, film, and television for more than thirty years. He is also behavior consultant to the Humane Society of New York. He lives in Middlesex County, Connecticut. Jim Hanrahan is a writer and Bill Berloni’s brother-in-law. 5

4/5/12 4:56 PM

In 1993, Donna Palomba was raped by a masked assailant in her own home. Yet, her story is more than a victim’s tale of physical and emotional recovery. It is a story of one woman’s hunt for justice while fending off attacks by institutions designed to defend and protect her—the police department, the local government, and a community clinging to an outrageous claim that Donna had invented the crime to cover up a sexual affair.

From the night of the attack, the botched crime scene investigation, and the abuse as authorities attempted to close the case by discrediting her, Donna was left as a victim with no name and no identity. Meanwhile, there was one courageous detective, later to become chief of police, who broke a cops’ code of silence in the name of justice. As they fought on, a legal battle ensued after the Waterbury Police Department—now with media support—refused to let go of its allegations against her and admit wrongdoing. Finally, after eleven years of struggle, Donna learned the identity of her attacker from the chief of


A woman on a crusade for justice—raped by a masked assailant, Donna Palomba’s long struggle was not only to see her assailant arrested but to defeat authorities bent on discrediting her, to reclaim her identity, to become an advocate for victims of sexual assault, and even to change the laws in her home state police, who explained that the DNA from the rape kit taken a decade ago had turned up a shocking match. In 2007, Donna Palomba was the subject of a special two-hour Dateline episode about her case. Suddenly, she was Jane Doe no more, launching the Jane Doe No More organization and becoming a promoter of the rights of women and victims of sexual assault. With the help of crime investigator and author M. William Phelps, this is her story. M. William Phelps, investigative journalist and star of the hit Investigation Discovery series Dark Minds, is the bestselling, award-winning author of more than twenty nonfiction books. Winner of 2008 New England Book Festival Award for I’ll Be Watching You, Phelps is also the author of The Devil’s Rooming House; The Devil’s Right Hand; and Murder, New England (all from Lyons Press). He lives in a small Connecticut farming community near the Massachusetts border. Donna M. Palomba is the face and founder of Jane Doe No More, a national non-profit established in 2007 to improve the way society responds to victims of sexual assault. She regularly collaborates with law enforcement, and successfully advocated for a Connecticut law removing the statute of limitations on sexual assault cases involving DNA evidence. Donna’s professional experience as co-founder and managing member of a marketing agency helped establish Jane Doe No More as a nationally recognized organization. She lives in Woodbury, Connecticut.

After 25 years of caring for children, first as a nurse, then as a pediatrician, Carolyn Roy-Bornstein finds herself on the other side of the stretcher when her 17-year-old son Neil is hit by a teenage drunk driver while walking his girlfriend Trista home after a study date. Trista did not survive her injuries. Neil carries his with him to this day. Gratitude for her son’s survival ultimately gives way to grief. While initially told Neil’s only injury was a broken leg, Roy-Bornstein quickly finds herself riding in the front seat of an ambulance transporting her son to the ICU at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston; his brain is bleeding. Roy-Bornstein is now not the patient’s doctor or nurse but his mom. The world she so easily navigated in a white uniform or a white coat now must be traversed, understood, and dealt with from the other side of the stretcher. There are many dividing lines in this story. The line that divides this family’s life in two: the events that occurred before the crash and those that came tumbling and faltering in its wake. The line that separates grief from gratitude: gratitude that her son is alive and as whole as he is; grief for his loss of memory and changed personality and for having his whole world shattered in an instant. The line that separates the world Roy-Bornstein knew so well as a nurse and then a doctor from the new one she must now navigate as the parent of a trauma victim. In these pages she explores all of these boundaries: between then and now, grief and gratitude, before and after, us and them. Her many years as a “medical insider” bring her story authenticity and detail while her newcomer status as the parent of a trauma victim add poignancy and warmth in this first memoir.

The doctor’s words drifted back to me. “CAT scan. . . . Just a precaution. . . . Out at the scene.”


Two teenagers. A dark road. A drunk driver. The journey from grief to gratitude to grace by a pediatrician-mother.

I tried to follow the gist. Neil would be okay. He had a broken leg. They were CT’ing his head as a precaution because he had lost consciousness right after the crash. I’ve talked to hundreds of parents in emergency rooms and ICUs. I’ve been the bearer of bad news or at least uncertainty more times than I care to remember. I know people shut down. I know they can only take in so much. I’ve learned to slow my pace, to read the signs in patients’ eyes and faces that this is enough. The well is full and I should stop dumping information into it. And now here I was on the other side of the stretcher, trying to comprehend what was happening. My son recognized me—that was good. But he slept if you let him— that was bad. He was not asking what happened. He was not asking for his father or his girlfriend.

Dr. Carolyn Roy-Bornstein is an award-winning writer who is also a practicing pediatrician. She writes a monthly health column, Pediatric Points, in the national newsletter Pediatrics for Parents. She is also an ambassador with the Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts, giving speeches to civic groups, schools and businesses. She lives in Newburyport, Massachusetts.

A real American Heart of Darkness—a deadly rebel ambush on the heels of the Spanish-American War in the Philippines, the brutal forced march of America’s first overseas prisoners of war, and one of the greatest rescue missions in U.S. Army history As the United States prosecuted a bloody campaign to pacify its newly-won Philippines territory, a secret mission of mercy went terribly wrong, resulting in our nation’s first overseas prisoners of war. The epic struggle for survival that followed was not only a test of the human will to live, but a crucible for heroes.

recalled today as one of the greatest marches in U.S. Army history, features a tightly-hewn cast of characters—including a frail yet determined teenaged sailor and his hardened seafaring mates; battle-tested veterans of the Civil War and the Indian Wars; and a fiery Filipino commander who gave orders to bury wounded Americans alive. A sweeping military epic drawing on international primary sources, The Devil’s Causeway tells their extraordinary story in its entirety for the first time.

In April 1899, Admiral George Dewey dispatched the USS Yorktown to liberate a detachment of Spanish soldiers under siege by native Filipinos. A crew of fifteen sailors rowed ashore in an armed cutter to reconnoiter enemy defenses. Then, Lieutenant James C. Gillmore Jr. recklessly pushed upriver into heavy jungle—and headlong into an ambush that would kill four of the men. The survivors were dragged across mountains and through dense jungle from one pestilent prison to the next along what Gillmore called “a veritable Devil’s Causeway.” Their captivity and the torturous expedition sent to their rescue,

Caught in a violent storm and blown far off their intended course, five American airmen—flying the dangerous Himalayan supply route known as “The Hump”—were forced to bail out just seconds before their plane ran out of fuel. To their astonishment, they found they had landed in the heart of Tibet. There they had to confront what, to them, seemed a bizarre—even alien—people. At the same time, they had to extricate themselves from the political turmoil that even then was raging around Tibet’s right to be independent from China. Now back in print, Lost in Tibet is an extraordinary story of high adventure. It also sheds light on the remarkable Tibetan people, just at that moment when they were coming to terms with a hostile outside world.

One recent summer, Richard Starks and Miriam Murcutt traveled through Spain—from Barcelona in the north to Malaga on the southern Mediterranean coast—staying exclusively in ancient monasteries. As they quickly discovered, these are intriguing places in which to stay. They are ripe with history, art, and culture (living museums); peopled by a dying breed of monks and nuns (last chance to see); rarely visited (so few tourists); and open to anyone who cares to stop by (you don’t have to be religious, although it doesn’t hurt if you are). They are also inexpensive (much of the time); eager for customers (most of the time); and always hospitable (in keeping with the Rule of St. Benedict). This account of the authors’ journey is irreverent at times, often amusing, but always respectful and entertaining. It will show you what it is like to turn your back on tourist Spain, to leave behind the hotels, pensions, and up-market paradors and immerse yourself in the cowled world of Spain’s many and varied ancient monasteries. Richard Starks and Miriam Murcutt are writers and editors who have authored several books, including Lost in Tibet and Along the River that Flows Uphill. Worldwide travelers, they rank their journey through Spain’s ancient monasteries as one of their most rewarding experiences. They live in Boulder, Colorado. Visit them at 13

“Heywood has crafted an entertaining bunch of characters. An absorbing narrative twists and turns in a setting ripe for corruption.” —Dallas Morning News

Late spring, 2007. Michigan in economic freefall, state budgets being slashed, politics reduced to nastiness, state jobs being erased, and personnel furloughed without pay. Grady Service, detective for the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) in the Upper Peninsula, watches as his colleagues leave the department one by one. Upon being asked by an old friend to look into unspecified problems his son is facing on the shores of Lake Superior, Service has no idea how complicated his life is about to become. All he knows is that the situation involves something his friend calls “bleeding sand”—and that his new partner, Conservation Officer Donna “Jingo” Sedge, is the oddest young officer he’s ever met. The story moves at breakneck speed as Service, nearing three decades as a Woods Cop, finds that expectations seem to be changing on all fronts, personal and professional, and he is not certain he can live up to them. Joseph Heywood is the author of The Snowfly (Lyons Press), The Berkut, Taxi Dancer, The Domino Conspiracy—and the eight novels comprising the Woods Cop Mystery series. Featuring Grady Service, a detective in the Upper Peninsula for Michigan’s Department of Natural Resources, this series has earned its author a legion of fans. Heywood lives in Portage, Michigan.

From the author of the Woods Cop mysteries—a new historical mystery set in 1913, featuring Rough Rider turned game warden Lute Bapcat, a violent miners’ strike, deadly sabotage, and the intentional destruction of Michigan wildlife

Woods Cop mystery author Joseph Heywood takes readers to an era when people had to be as hard as the lives they lived. Meet Lute Bapcat, orphan, loner, former cowboy, Rough Rider, beaver trapper, a man who in 1913, with the enthusiastic recommendation by Theodore Roosevelt, himself, becomes one of Michigan’s first civil service game wardens. His territory: The Keweenaw Peninsula, the state’s industrial center. Featuring a stunning array of characters, fascinating historical detail, and Heywood’s trademark writing about life and work in Michigan’s wild, Red Jacket asks Lute to confront an explosive, bloody labor strike; a siege-like sabotage, including a sudden rash of decapitated, spoiled deer; poisoned trout streams and well water; and unusual deforestation—all apparently designed by mine owners to deny nature’s bounty to the strikers, and thereby to break the union. The strike’s violence culminates in the Italian Hall disaster, during which a man allegedly yells fire in a small building with several hundred people inside. In the panic, 73 people are crushed or die of suffocation, the majority of them the children and wives of striking miners at the hall for a Christmas party. Even with good people dying, the Michigan governor refuses to take sides. Should Lute Bapcat? Joseph Heywood is the author of The Snowfly (Lyons), Covered Waters (Lyons), The Berkut, Taxi Dancer, The Domino Conspiracy—and the eight novels comprising the Woods Cop Mystery Series.

The gripping, forgotten story of America’s first military foray into the Middle East

Clash of Eagles America’s Forgotten Expedition to Ottoman Palestine Carol Lea Clark 978-0-7627-7842-3 ■ September 2012 $24.95 US/$27.50 CAN ■ World ■ Cloth 6 x 9 ■ 272 pp ■ 12/CTN b&w photos and illustrations ■ Lyons Press HISTORY

In the middle of the Mexican-American War, the secretary of the Navy authorized Lt. William Francis Lynch to command an unusual expedition, not south to the war zone, but east to Ottoman Palestine, now Israel and Jordan, to map the Dead Sea. Traversing this backwater of a dying empire, Lynch forged life-saving alliances with a Bedouin sheik and a Hashemite sharif. Horses weren’t strong enough, so he improvised with foul-tempered camels to haul metal boats overland from the Mediterranean to the Sea of Galilee. He navigated the treacherous, uncharted rapids of the Jordan and braved near starvation before reaching Jerusalem, attempting to establish that the Dead Sea lay below sea level. But it didn’t generate enough knowledge to justify the expense or the suffering of the fifteen Americans who joined Lynch’s obsessive quest. Was it a publicity stunt? Or the first step in returning Muslim Palestine to its former glory as a Judeo-Christian land of milk and honey? In vivid, absorbing detail, Clash of Eagles masterfully recounts this seemingly foolhardy mission that the Civil War soon derailed. Another hundred years would pass before America again involved itself in the Middle East. Carol Clark, associate professor of English at the University of Texas at El Paso, has written more than 50 magazine articles and eight textbooks. She held a Fulbright to Jordan in 2008–2009 and discovered William Lynch’s story while at the American Center for Oriental Research in Amman. She lives in El Paso, Texas. 16

The unusual history of a relatively little-known misfit regiment— marking the 150th anniversary of its founding on September 1, 2012—that was nonetheless at the center of many of the Civil War’s most critical battles

In the Very Thickest of the Fight The Civil War Service of the 78th Illinois Volunteer Infantry Regiment Steve Raymond 978-0-7627-8283-3 ■ September 2012 $18.95 US/$20.95 CAN ■ World ■ Paper 6 x 9 ■ 400 pp ■ 24/CTN b&w photos, maps ■ Globe Pequot HISTORY

The regiment known as the 78th Illinois had an inauspicious start. The troops served under an absentee colonel who feuded with his officers and superiors, ended up arrested, and finally retreated to his tent and did nothing. They were issued regiment ancient rifles, including many that did not work. The regiment’s companies were posted separately as guards at railroad bridges, which prevented the regiment from drilling and learning to maneuver as a unit. Devoid of leadership, distrusted by senior officers, the 78th became a regiment that was always left behind when others went to the front. Until they weren’t. In addition to the personal stories this book tells, it offers details of many incidents and battles that have virtually escaped the prior notice of historians because those details are part of the story of this ignominious regiment. It also describes Western campaigns that have traditionally taken a back seat to the Eastern Theater in Civil War literature, and its narrative plays out against a broad landscape of six states—Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, and the Carolinas. Steve Raymond is author of nine previous books. He is a long-time member of the Civil War Trust and the Puget Sound Civil War Roundtable and for many years has been the Seattle Times’ chief reviewer of Civil War history and a member of the National Book Critics Circle. He lives in Whidbey, Washington. 17

A parody of the Dr. Seuss classic The Cat in the Hat for overtired parents who haven’t lost their sense of humor—or their own affection for Seuss himself Praise for Lex Friedman’s The Snuggie Sutra “I’m recommending it. Passionately. Simply put, this is brilliance on the page. . . . It’s all freakin’ hilarious.” —Publishers Weekly

The Kid in the Crib A Doctor Seuss Parody Lex Friedman and Felix Jason Schlater 978-0-7627-8304-5 ■ September 2012 $14.95 US/$16.95 CAN ■ World ■ Cloth 61/2 x 87⁄8 ■ 48 pp ■ 48/CTN full-color illustrations ■ Lyons Press HUMOR

A children’s book for adults in the vein of the mega-bestselling Go the F**k to Sleep, The Kid in the Crib brilliantly reimagines the Dr. Seuss classic, The Cat in the Hat, for beleaguered parents struggling with the anxieties and challenges of parenting in the 21st century. It substitutes the typical worries, frustrations, and challenges of modern parenting for Seuss’s original story about a kindly feline and the children he befriends. It lays out the daily power struggle between parents as they each insist that it’s the other one’s turn to deal with the befouled diaper, and the bleary-headedness that coincides with an infant’s sleeping patterns. Parents will chuckle as they read “The kid spat up white/The kid spat up green/The kid spat up more spit up/ Than we’d ever seen.” This pitch-perfect parody—expertly illustrated by graphic designer Felix Schlater—paints an honest portrait of parenting that will have moms and dads nodding in recognition and howling with laughter. And it is a story that parents will delight in reading, both to each other—and even to their kids someday. Lex Friedman is the co-author of The Snuggie Sutra, which is as ridiculous as it sounds. He writes for Macworld and lives in New Jersey with his family. Felix Jason Schlater is a Virginia-based illustrator and graphic designer. When he’s not drawing, he enjoys spending time with his wife and two crazy dogs. 18

A humorous look at life on a cattle ranch—and a poignant reflection on loss and lessons learned

Its Head Came Off by Accident is a humorous, yet poignant reflection on gratitude and loss. It describes a childhood that takes place on a vast Wyoming landscape—more than 6,000 acres near Jackson that extended into parts of Grand Teton National Park—where the author grew up with adventure-crazed, raucous brothers and friends, and a colorful collection of Western characters, most particularly her own mother. Mead-Ferro’s desire to move back to her childhood homeland from the city is weighed with how she felt when she did live on the cattle ranch, always unsure if she fit in. When Mead-Ferro’s mother is killed in a freak horse accident while herding cattle, Mead-Ferro faces the loss not only of this profoundly influential person but of the entire ranching operation: a century-old legacy. After she and her brothers sell the family ranch Mead-Ferro attempts to recreate the landscape of her childhood—particularly the privileges and responsibilities of land, animals, and real work—as a bequest to her own children. Muffy Mead-Ferro is the author of the best-selling Confessions of a Slacker Mom and Confessions of a Slacker Wife. She’s been featured on Oprah, The Today Show, and Talk of the Nation, and in publications such as The Atlantic and The London Times. She and her family reside in Salt Lake City and Alta, Wyoming. 19

Part memoir, part how-to, all Baxter Black, Lessons from a Desperado Poet is a humorous, witty take on making a living by doing the right thing and trying everything. According to Baxter Black, success “does not require a genius; it just requires the persistence of a glacier. Remember, often it’s not ability that gets you ahead, it’s reliability. The world is run by those who show up.” A mind-tickling romp through the formation, fermentation, and fruition of the author’s career as a poet in a country where publishing poetry is “practically illegal,” Lessons from a Desperado Poet boldly injects a poem now and again when it is relevant, just to prove a point! It’s instructional for the entrepreneur, inspirational for the ambitious, and entertaining for the teeming masses. Lessons from a Desperado Poet leaves a trail of self-improvement and motivational tortilla crumbs that readers will follow with delight—before, that is, squirreling them away in their own cerebral pockets for later use. Baxter Black is known to millions for his insights as America’s Cowboy Poet and as a large-animal veterinarian. He would still be a practicing vet if, in his words, “cowboy poetry had not hijacked my life.” His books include The Back Page: The Best of Baxter Black from Western Horseman, and Hey, Cowboy, Wanna Get Lucky? He lives in Benson, Arizona. 20

From the journey’s beginning in the oasis of the Singing Sands, through the perils of the London Blitz, this is the story of an amazing adventure, and an extraordinary Buddhist text that has touched millions of lives “A high-velocity tale of epic adventure.” —Sydney Morning Herald

“The special talent of Morgan and Walters is their ability to tantalize us with information and thrill us in a way that a work of history can rarely do. . . . Rarely do we read a book that so cleverly and subtly combines the conventions of so many different types of literature. A rare artifact indeed.” —Walter Mason, Good Reading magazine

When a Chinese monk broke through a hidden door in 1900, he uncovered one of history’s greatest literary secrets: a 1,000-year-old time capsule of life along the ancient Silk Road. Inside the chamber on the edge of the Gobi Desert, documents were piled from floor to ceiling. The gem among them was the Diamond Sutra of AD 868, now recognized as the world’s oldest printed book. The book’s journey—by camel through treacherous deserts, by boat to London scholars, by train to evade the bombs of World War II—merges an explorer’s adventures and political intrigue. Its path from East to West has coincided with the growing appeal of Buddhism in the contemporary world. As the Gutenberg Age cedes to the Google Age, the discovery of the Silk Road’s greatest treasure is an epic tale of survival, a literary detective story, and an evocation of the travelling power of the book. Joyce Morgan’s work has appeared in The Australian, The Guardian, The Bangkok Post, and The Sydney Morning Herald. Conrad Walters is a feature writer and book reviewer at The Sydney Morning Herald.

Just like the hit show on ABC-TV, Suburgatory skewers the ridiculous cast of characters and typical situations one encounters when relinquishing the city for suburbia. “What life might be like if Sarah Silverman moved to the burbs. A sexy, saucy, hilarious romp.” —Bill Diehl, ABC Entertainment Correspondent

“‘Hilarious.’ ‘Insightful.’ ‘Genius.’ People are always saying these words to me. Now, finally, I can say them about someone else: specifically whoever wrote this book. Linda somebody.” —Robert Carlock, Executive Producer of NBC’s 30 Rock

“Linda Keenan is the smartest, sassiest girl you know times ten, after two shots of tequila. Her brazen, ballsy look at life in the suburbs is more than laugh out loud—Subugatory will make you shoot milk out of your nose, then immediately reup the lease on your townhouse in the city.” —Karen Karbo, author of The Gospel According to Coco Chanel and How Georgia Became O’Keeffe

Suburgatory lampoons the absurdities and contradictions that Linda Keenan has witnessed since leaving New York City, where she was a thoroughly urban CNN news producer for seven years, and settling down as a hapless stay-at-home suburban mother. The original proposal for this book was picked up by Warner Brothers, and you can see their imagining of Suburgatory on the ABC show of the same title. Keenan was forced by the man in her life to leave her beloved New York City for a supposed suburban utopia. Instead she found herself trapped in a place where conformity is king, and where she often felt like she had been taken hostage by an adult Girl Scout troop. So Keenan decided to train her twisted reporter’s eye on the strange inhabitants of this new foreign land. Thought of as a local town newspaper or website, Suburgatory excoriates—through satirical local ”news stories”—the mostly upper middle class American pieties and parenting obsessions, targeting the all-around bad behavior raging underneath the surface of those obsessively tended suburban lawns and bikini lines. Linda Erin Keenan spent seven years as a CNN head-writer for anchors, including Anderson Cooper and Lou Dobbs, before trading it all in for baby and suburbia. She now trains her reporter’s eye on the subversive side of her new, foreign environment. Her essays have appeared in The Boston Globe Magazine and The Huffington Post. She lives in Wellesley, Massachusetts. 25

Carter Oosterhouse knows how real people live and how intimidating home design can be. With his reassuring, “you can do it” attitude, he goes out of his way to show readers how to create realistic design elements that they can implement with basic tools and a little DIY experience. His mission is to bring people’s imaginations to life. The design features he constructs use materials easily found, are budget-conscious, and whenever possible environmentally friendly. In Carter’s Way, he decodes the time-tested principles of design, using specific examples and stunning photos to visually illustrate his points. Each chapter will cover a different area of the house, acknowledging the diversity of layouts in today’s homes. For example, one chapter will focus on spaces for cooking, eating, and socializing to appeal both to people with a formal dining area and those with more open floor plans, with a design that is about comfort, entertaining, and practicality. Other chapters include: intimate bedroom spaces featuring beautiful and efficient storage for a sensual environment that becomes a sanctuary; living/family rooms with the kind of versatility that allows them to convert from game-playing rumpus rooms to elegant cocktail party spaces; luxurious bathrooms that provide a spa-like getaway from stress while also conserving energy and water; home offices/entryways/ laundry rooms; and outdoor spaces that can serve as twoor three-season rooms for entertaining and relaxing.


The popular host of HGTV’s Carter Can, Million Dollar Rooms, and Red, Hot & Green now offers homeowners a book featuring his empowering home-design method.

I’m writing this book because of all the people who come up to me at events, or write me, saying things like, “I wish I could make my kitchen look like the one on your last show,” or, “If only I could have you work on my living room!” You don’t need me in person. You don’t need anybody else. You need my perspective and my method. My method is what I call “Carter’s Way.” It’s a process that has worked for me in dozens of different rooms and homes. Now I want it to work for you!

The powerful and lyrical story of two women whose words and astonishing friendship helped them survive the ultimate loss

Grief blisters like third degree burns, trying to form scabs, struggling to heal, ripped off without warning by the sight of his favorite things: scuffed Adidas, an autographed Tony Hawk skateboard, Rice Krispies treats, macaroni and cheese from a box. I see him in all of these things now, but he quickly evaporates, setting off a silent alarm that plays full volume inside my head. (Armen) This is the month I’ve been wondering about for nearly a year. That marker that reminds me I’m still alive, but frozen—a still life—that I’ve survived the step out of time into the realm of no-time. Where the frost that sweeps the lawns with glistening white has infiltrated my body and soul like a virus, moving through each vein and artery, to the ends of my toes. I am frozen from the inside out. (Nancy)

Griefland. It’s a place no one wants to visit—a place without borders where language is inadequate and pain is constant. It’s a place where every morning, one awakens to the stark reality that a loved one will never be seen, heard—or embraced—again. This is a place that Armen Bacon and Nancy Miller know all too well, for both of them, when they met, had lost a child to drug addiction. Both of them had also enjoyed a comfortable, middle-class life—until it was rocked by the sudden death of a son, Alex, and a daughter, Rachel. Griefland provides an intimate portrait of what tragedy does to the human soul, how it changes one’s life, and most important, how it can be survived. With achingly beautiful language, this book explores the acute moment-to-moment experience of grief. But it also transcends that and speaks to the redemptive power of friendship, trust, intimacy, and love. Together they discover a will and desire to move forward, recognizing that Life is the ultimate prize for those who survive this excruciating journey. Armen Bacon is a regular contributor to The Fresno Bee and has a daily radio feature titled Live, Laugh, Love. For two decades she has served as a media spokeswoman for education. Armen resides in Fresno, California. Nancy Miller has been an English and composition instructor at the university and junior college levels for more than seventeen years.

An entertaining look at the serious business of finding a husband or wife by mail in the wide-open days of the Old West

Object: Matrimony The Risky Business of Mail-Order Matchmaking on the Western Frontier Chris Enss 978-0-7627-7399-2 ■ October 2012 $14.95 US/$16.95 CAN ■ World ■ Paper 6 x 9 ■ 176 pp ■ 24/CTN b&w photos ■ TwoDot HISTORY

Desperate to strike it rich during the Western Gold Rushes and eager for the free land afforded them through the Homestead Act, men went west alone. One way for men living on the frontier to meet women was through subscriptions to newspapers with information, and sometimes photographs, about women, with whom they corresponded. Eventually, a man might convince a woman to join him in the West, and in matrimony. Object Matrimony includes stories of courageous mail-order brides and their exploits as well as stories of the marriage brokers, mercenary matchmakers looking to profit as merchants did off of the miners and settlers. Some of these stories end happily ever after; others reveal desperate situations that robbed the brides of their youth and sometimes their lives. Chris Enss is an award-winning screen writer who has written for television, short subject films, live performances, and for the movies, and is the author or co-author of more than twenty books. She lives in Grass Valley, California. 34

Those of us who are interested in bird behavior beyond the feeder or the identification guide book find meager pickings when it comes to information. I am fortunate that my house faces a cliff with a river at the base where I can watch raptors, water fowl, and a hundred other species. The nests of a pair of bald eagles and another upriver inhabited by golden eagles are in sight from the breakfast table. I have plenty of books on birds, but the information on why the big eagles do what they do is hard to dig out. Eagle behavior is usually lumped together with the general behavior of the Accipitrids, but a single book focused on the rich lore and sweep of eagledom did not seem to exist. . . . Bodio’s beautifully written and authoritative book, Eagles, is a primary source of information as well as an omnium gatherum from literature, film and mythology concerning these large, striking birds.” —From the Introduction by Annie Proulx


For nature lovers and especially lovers of the eagle, An Eternity of Eagles is a profusely illustrated celebration of all things eagle, by a naturalist who has kept eagles himself and ridden with the eagle tribes of Central Asia.

From one of the foremost author/naturalists in the country, Stephen J. Bodio, comes a compulsively readable natural and social history of the most beautiful bird in the world—the eagle—with a lengthy and admiring introduction by Annie Proulx. An Eternity of Eagles traces our love-hate relationship to these “living dinosaurs,” from Neolithic rock art and Native American religion through the practices of Kazakh falconers who use them to hunt wolves, and to contemporary art and popular culture. Stephen Bodio was born and educated in Boston and has lived in a rural New Mexico village for over thirty years. He has traveled extensively in Europe, Africa, and Asia and has written five books. 35

From the creators of U.S. Army Zombie Combat Skills comes the Army’s doctrine on training zombies to work with our soldiers, just as we train canines to work in the military— with illustrations of zombies-intraining and fully trained zombies in combat operations

When a zombie is taken prisoner by the Army, it need not be uselessly destroyed. In fact, just as our Army has a program to train dogs for combat roles, it has a program to train the captured Undead for combat roles. No zombie that our Army can capture will go unutilized. This is our Army’s “No Zombie Left Behind” policy. The manual in your hands is the Department of Defense’s principle source of information on care, conditioning, training, and operations of our Army’s Working Zombies—such as Blech!, the brave zombie who served in a capacity similar to that of his canine comrade Cairo in the raid that captured Bin Laden. From basics, such as “HEEL” and “STAY” to negotiating obstacle courses, to tracking, searching, attacking, and even Zombies working undercover in the real world, this manual shows readers how our military trains zombies to be soldier zombies. Illustrations depict the Do’s and Don’ts of Zombie care, training, and operations. Contents include: ■■ ■■ ■■ ■■

A visual portrait of perseverance, heroism, and survival through stunning photographs and powerful essays “Stacy Pearsall’s account . . . is riveting not only in terms of the visuals, but also in her written accounts of the harrowing, street to street, doorway to doorway patrols that constitute the day-to-day grind of the troops on the ground. She brings to her reporting not only the skilled eye of a photojournalist, but also the emotional immediacy of being a soldier herself.” —Joe McNally, National Geographic photographer, author of Faces of Ground Zero, The Moment It Clicks, and The Hot Shoe Diaries

“Shooter . . . takes us on a behind-the-scenes tour and gives us a true sense of what it is like for our service men and women who are placed in harm’s way. After seeing the photographs, the viewer will feel like they’ve just ridden shotgun with our troops abroad.”

—Jim Colton, Photography Editor, Sports Illustrated, Former Director of Photography, Newsweek magazine

A soldier’s job is to enage the enemy; Stacy Pearsall’s job is to document the action. As a female combat photographer, she carries a gun, but her real weapon is her camera. Shooter is Pearsall’s honest and unflinching account of her life behind enemy lines as told through photographs that reveal the realities of war. Pearsall was situated just north of Baghdad, in a place known as the Deadly Diyala Province, where the Battle for Baqubah ensued. She endured hardships that most readers could not fathom—from close quarters combat with the enemy to recovering the body of a mortally wounded soldier. She has captured soldiers’ last moments alive. In this photographic book, Pearsall sheds light on what life during war is really like—both out in the field in the middle of the action and at rest. Detailed intimate essays about her relationships with soldiers, death, and combat accompany her striking photographs. She shares her poignant memories of the most dramatic and compelling moments in battle with brutal honesty through colorful stories and images. Stacy Pearsall was in the Combat Camera Squadron. Her work has been published in Time, Newsweek, New York Times, USA Today, and PBS’ “Operation Home Coming.” A collection of her combat photographs went on a nationwide tour in 2009.

A highly readable account of the most momentous presidential speeches and the stories behind them, illustrated with facsimiles of the documents, notes, and drafts that together formed the final speech

The President’s Speech The Stories behind the Most Memorable Presidential Addresses C. Edwin Vilade 978-0-7627-7981-9 ■ October 2012 $30.00 US/$33.00 CAN ■ North America ■ Cloth 81/2 x 10 ■ 256 pp ■ 12/CTN full-color and b&w photos ■ Lyons Press

With vivid insight and rousing examples, The President’s Speech rises to the heights of presidential eloquence. Prying apart America’s most important presidential speeches phrase by phrase, the book examines the pivotal, often familiar, and always potent language of these speeches and gives each its framework, both within the context of its era but also as a point on a timeline of our country’s long history. From Washington’s Farewell Address to George W. Bush’s Axis of Evil State of the Union Address, author Charles Edwin Vilade reveals the varied and often conflicting points of view that shaped the final famous words. In color facsimiles, we see the actual edits, deletions, additions, and notes, showing how remarkable and forceful language was crafted, sometimes last minute, into the enduring words made famous by their timing, context, delivery, and power. The President’s Speech stitches together two centuries of political and social progress, from the 1823 Monroe Doctrine, to Lincoln’s “with malice towards none” second inaugural speech, FDR’s “nothing to fear but fear itself” inaugural address, to Reagan’s “tear down that wall, Mr. Gorbachev” speech at Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate, revealing political and social currents that frame these words for modern times. Charles Edwin Vilade is an author, speechwriter and communications consultant who has written for two U.S. Presidents, two Vice Presidents, numerous Cabinet officials, heads of multinational corporations and other public figures. He resides in Bethesda, Maryland, with his wife. 39

The tragic yet triumphant life of Elizabeth Winthrop, one of America’s founding mothers who persevered in following her heart

Insubordinate Spirit is a unique exploration into the life of Elizabeth Winthrop and other seventeenth-century English Puritans who emigrated to the rough, virtually untouched wilderness of present-day New England. Excerpts from newly discovered personal diaries and correspondence provide readers with not only fascinating insights into the hardships, dangers, and losses inherent to English and Dutch settlers in the 1600s, but also first-hand descriptions of the local Native Americans’ family life, allegiances, and society. Caught between the unendurable expectations of her Puritan relatives and land disputes with the neighboring Dutch, Elizabeth Winthrop demonstrated a tremendous strength of resolve to protect her own family and remain true to her heart. Missy Wolfe is a historian who has been conducting primary research into Connecticut history for many years. She has degrees from Indiana University and Columbia University and has gained a following as a lecturer on local history. A former advertising strategist and copy writer in New York, she lives in Greenwich, Connecticut. 40

The stunning memoir and secret love letters of a young woman in WWII Berlin and the Russian Gulag “A beautifully written, deeply human story of two courageous women on a terrifying journey . . . a page-turner [that] helps complete a blank page in the history of the German people.” —Thomas E. Kennedy, author of In the Company of Angels

Letters from Berlin A Story of War, Survival, and the Redeeming Power of Love and Friendship Margarete Dos and Kerstin Lieff 978-0-7627-7798-3 ■ October 2012 $24.95 US/$27.50 CAN ■ North America ■ Cloth 6 x 9 ■ 400 pp ■ 12/CTN b&w photos, maps ■ Lyons Press BIOGRAPHY & AUTOBIOGRAPHY

When Margarete Dos moved with her family to Berlin on the eve of World War II, she and her younger brother were blindly ushered into a generation of Hitler Youth. Like countless citizens under Hitler’s regime, Margarete struggled to understand what was happening to her country. Later, as a nurse for the German Red Cross, she treated countless young soldiers­—mere boys recruited in the eleventh hour to fight a losing battle—they would die before her eyes as Allied bombs racked her beloved city. Yet, her deep humanity, intelligence, and passion for life—which sparkles in every sentence of her memoir—carried Margarete through to war’s end. But just when she thought the worst was over, and she and her mother were on a train headed to Sweden, they were suddenly rerouted deep into Russia . . . This powerful account draws back the curtain on a piece of history that has been largely overlooked—the nightmare that millions of German civilians suffered, simply because they were German. That Margarete survived to tell her tale so vividly and courageously is a gift to us all. Kerstin Lieff was born to Margarete Dos and Jurgen Moller in Stockholm, Sweden, in 1952, just after her parents fled their German homeland. Ten months later, the family immigrated to St. Paul, Minnesota, where Kerstin grew up speaking German and hearing stories about her parents’ past. Her mother died in 2005 at the age of eighty-one, not long after reciting her life’s story. She now lives in Boulder, Colorado. 41

A beautifully written story of one man’s lifelong passion for hunting “The Fragrance of Grass is an exquisite, big-hearted celebration of a life grandly spent outdoors. Any novelist who’d try to invent a character like Guy de la Valdène would be doomed to fall short. He is a unique philosopherscoundrel with a wise, gentle heart, and he writes like a dream.” —Carl Hiaasen

“Guy de la Valdène’s portraiture of French farmers, landowners, and sportsmen is flawless, his appreciation of dogs profound. He writes with a lyric toughness that gives his work the tonal richness of literature. The Fragrance of Grass feels as though it was descanted rather than written, one eloquent sentence flowing into another. His view of hunting is, at its deepest level, a joyous, melancholy meditation on life and death.” —Christopher Camuto, Gray’s Sporting Journal

One of Comedy Central’s Top 100 Stand-Up Comedians of All Time, award-winning dramatic actor, and an Internet pioneer, Kevin Pollak has done it all for thirty years and is ready to spill the beans. Best known for performances in A Few Good Men and The Usual Suspects, he shares never-before-heard stories of film legends like De Niro, Hanks, Howard, Lemon, Loren, Lucas, Martin, Mathau, Reiner, Scorcese, Singer, Willis, and more. He turned down his first invitation to do stand-up on The Tonight Show because he knew that he’d have a bigger impact if he sat next to Johnny instead of performing onstage. When he gambled for a spot on the most coveted couch in showbiz, he had no agent, no auditions, no

Johnny did his monologue, kibitzed with Ed, then spoke with his first guest. After a commercial break, it was time. Doc Severinsen cut off his orchestra at the perfect moment, and Johnny said, in that unmistakable Iowa/Nebraska accent, “Ladies and gentlemen, making his first appearance on the show, a young comedian who’s in a new movie directed by Ron Howard called Willow. Please welcome, Kevin Pollak.”


Kevin Pollak’s hilarious, often raw and revealing tales of climbing and surviving the showbiz ladder

The audience let out a collective cry of, Who the hell is Kevin Pollak?—or at least that’s what I imagined—then applauded. I walked out from behind the curtain (which I’d rehearsed 5,000 times in my bedroom mirror, no exaggeration), waved to the audience (also rehearsed), and unbuttoned my jacket (rehearsed). Oddly, I wasn’t nervous, but rather excited, as excited as a kid making his first trip to Disneyworld, or a kid trying to fall sleep on Christmas Eve, or just about any guy who’s about to lose his virginity.

Now a new media entrepreneur, Pollak is laughing proof that you can do anything you want—except have a rational conversation with Rip Torn, who’s an evil, paranoid $#!%. Kevin Pollak has appeared in over 65 films, including A Few Good Men, The Usual Suspects, Casino and the Grumpy Old Men franchise, in addition to numerous TV shows. Named one of Comedy Central’s Top 100 Comedians of All Time. He lives near the beach in Los Angeles with his fiancée, Jaime, and their cat, Edie.

With the publication of The Raw Food Detox Diet, Natalia Rose popularized the concept of “detox dieting.” Her principles for cleansing and revitalizing the body by emphasizing living foods and proper food combinations caught the attention of Doris Choi, personal chef and caterer to New York’s cognoscenti—and inspired a whole new culinary approach. Rose and Choi teamed up to create The Rose Program Culinary Institute and Detox Delivers, an innovative cooking school and food delivery service for clients nationwide. Now, with The Fresh Energy Cookbook, they unveil more than 150 of Chef Doris’s most coveted dishes, ideal for dieters and home cooks of all stripes. Lovingly compiled and gorgeously photographed, it covers essential kitchenware, prep skills, pantry items—and recipes for everything from juices and smoothies to warm savory salads, satisfying entrees, and guiltless desserts—all delicious and stunningly simple to prepare.

While this cookbook features many vegan and raw dishes, it offers a range of amazingly healthy recipes, some of which include goat cheese, fish, and gently cooked starches and vegetables.

For centuries, dyed fabrics ranked among the most desirable objects of the ancient world, fetching up to 20 times their weight in gold. Few people knew their complex secrets, carefully guarding the valuable knowledge. The Rarest Blue tells the incredible story of tekhelet, or hyacinth blue, the elusive sky-blue dye mentioned throughout the Hebrew Bible. Minoans discovered it; Phoenicians stole it; Roman emperors revered it; Cleopatra adored it; and Jews—obeying a Biblical commandment to affix a single thread of the radiant color to the corner of their garments—risked their lives for it. But with the fall of the Roman Empire, the technique vanished. Then in the nineteenth century, a marine biologist saw a fisherman’s shirt smeared with snail guts, marveling as the yellow stains turned sky blue. What was the secret? At the same time, a Hasidic master obsessed with the ancient technique posited that the source wasn’t a snail but a squid. Bitter fighting ensued until the chief rabbi of Ireland discovered that one of them was wrong. But had an unscrupulous chemist deliberately deceived him? Baruch Sterman is cofounder of the Ptil Tekhelet Association and was instrumental in developing the modern techniques for dyeing tekhelet used today. He has written numerous articles on the subject in several languages and is considered a world expert on snail dyeing. He divides his time between Israel and New Jersey with his wife, Judy Taubes Sterman, and their seven children.

As Lacaze-Duthiers would discover, three snail species were used for dyeing in ancient times, and all three belonged to the same family of mollusk. They were known as Murex trunculus, Murex brandaris, and Thais haemastoma. Found along the Mediterranean coast, these small creatures have a small gland, part of the snail’s digestive system, a secretion from which is the source of the dye. From these three mollusks it is possible to produce a broad spectrum of colors ranging from sky blue to reddish purple, depending on the specific snail, the amount of dye used, and the varying conditions under which the dye is prepared. On the purple side of the spectrum is Tyrian purple, known in the ancient world as argamman, while on the blue side is the color that has been described as Biblical blue, or tekhelet.


Discover how a sea snail and the ancient dye that it produced colored the course of history.

Each murex provides only a few drops of the precious secretion; it takes more than 20,000 snails to produce just one kilogram of dyed wool. The procedure for extracting the glands is time ­consuming, and the methods of dyeing are exceedingly complicated and somewhat unpredictable. It is therefore no surprise that in the ancient world the price these dazzling purple and blue dyes could command was equally dazzling. Records show that at one time, wool dyed with the shellfish dye was worth more than twenty times its weight in gold. Naturally it soon became a status symbol, a sign of wealth and prestige, and it embellished the robes of emperors and kings.

From Beauregard and Custer to Lee and Sherman, twelve commanders from each side vividly describe what they and their men experienced at twelve of the war’s most legendary battles from Fort Sumter to Appomattox Court House in accounts gathered from letters, memoirs, reports, and testimonies. They relate noted incidents and personal triumphs and tragedies while covering strategies and explaining battlefield decisions. Trench warfare at Petersburg and Sherman’s scorched earth policy in Georgia foreshadowed the world wars to come, and technological advancements—such as armored steamships, landmines, and machine guns—literally changed the landscape of war. Submarines and a time bomb even came into play. Informative biographies and headnotes for each battle give parallel statistics at a glance and establish context; sidebars cover notable tactics and technologies, including espionage, aerial reconnaissance, and guerilla warfare; and a concise roll-call outlines each commander’s life in full after the war. Here, from the men who conducted and controlled it, is an invaluable sourcebook of what happened in the War Between the States and why. John Richard Stephens trained as an intelligence officer and held numerous positions in the U.S. Air Force, including grouplevel executive officer and squadron commander. The author of sixteen books, including Weird History 101; The Wild, Wild West; and Wyatt Earp Speaks!, he lives on Maui, Hawaii. 52

Discovering the hidden gems in America’s little-known fine art museums along with behind-thescenes stories about the collectors and collections

Some of the country’s best art is hidden in plain sight, in museums largely unknown outside their regions. How works by masters like Rembrandt, Rodin, Ansel Adams, Picasso, van Gogh, Monet, Hokusai, and O’Keeffe wound up where they did is a colorful tale of American art collecting and history. It’s the story of patrician families who acquired masterworks, selfmade millionaires who used their business savvy to outbid rivals, and prescient collectors who championed new artists and neglected genres. A visit to each of the fifty museums in this book offers an art-viewing experience 360 degrees different from most museum visits––one that is personal, intimate, and blissfully uncrowded. The museums in A Love for the Beautiful deliver for today’s travelers, transforming routine business trips and forming the basis for memorable destination weekends and getaways. Susan Jaques is a journalist specializing in art and travel. She has written for numerous magazines, newspapers, and websites. Travel writing sparked Jaques’s love for art. An assignment in Italy led to Padua and the Scrovegni Chapel, Giotto’s medieval treasure. Another assignment led her to Holland for Rembrandt’s 400th birthday. Articles about museums in London and Amsterdam soon followed. Jaques is graduate of Stanford University with a B.A. in history and UCLA’s Graduate School of Management, where she earned her master’s degree. Among her favorite places are the Getty and Frick libraries. She lives in Southern California. 53

—The Washington Post

“Few accounts have ever done justice to the women, families, and communities of coal towns, or depicted their character with such clarity as this book does.” —Charleston (WV) Gazette

Aron Lieb approached Sue Resnick at a Jewish Community Center fifteen years ago and found a companion and soul mate who was steadfastly by his side for the rest of his life. You Saved Me, Too is the incredible story of how two people shared the hidden parts of themselves and created a bond that was complicated, challenging, but ultimately invaluable. Sue was first attracted to Aron’s warmth and wit, such a contrast to his tragic past and her recent battle with postpartum depression. Soon she would be dealing with his mental illness, fighting the mainstream Jewish community for help with his care, and questioning her faith. The dramatic tension builds when Sue promises not to let Aron die alone. This book chronicles their remarkable friendship, which began with weekly coffee dates and flourished into much more. With beautiful prose, it alternates between his history, their developing friendship, and a current health crisis that may force them to part. Susan Kushner Resnick teaches creative nonfiction at Brown University. She is the author of Sleepless Days and Goodbye Wifes and Daughters, which won a gold medal for nonfiction from the Independent Publisher’s Book Awards. She has been published in The New York Times magazine and The Boston Globe. She lives in Massachusetts. 54

For more than 60 years, tourists visiting Casablanca tried to visit Rick’s Café Americain only to discover that Warner Brothers had built the entire set on a studio back lot. It was a Hollywood fantasy—until Kathy Kriger came along, that is, and decided after 9/11 to bring the imaginary gin joint to life. In Rick’s Café, she takes us through souk back alleys, the Marché Central’s overflowing food stalls, and the shadowy Moroccan business world, all while producing, directing, casting, and playing lead actress in her own story. Instead of letters of transit, she begged for letters of credit; the governor of Casablanca watched her back instead of Captain Renault; and at the piano, playing “As Time Goes By,” sits not Sam but Issam. She encountered paper pushers, absent architects, dedicated craftsmen, mad chefs, and surprising allies. It took over two years, but Rick’s Café opened in 2004 to rave reviews. Now, as Captain Renault says to Major Strasser, “Everybody comes to Rick’s.” Here is how she brought to life the screen legend that has captured the imagination of generations. Kathy Kriger was born and raised near Portland, Oregon, where she founded her own travel agency before traveling the world. After four years in the US and Foreign Commercial Service in Morocco, she created Rick’s Café, which opened in 2004 to rave reviews. She has been interviewed by CNN, AP, PBS, Travel Channel, and More magazine among others. She lives in Morocco. 55

How to Live Like a Lady 978-1-59221-352-1

In our modern age of rampant consumerism, we are losing touch with the traditional domestic activities that previous generations took for granted. We buy everything we need—and much that we don’t—rather than making new or making do. We no longer know how to sew a button, darn a hole, or iron properly. However, while vacuum cleaners and washing machines might be a godsend, can we favorably compare a mass-produced holiday decoration from a superstore with a gorgeous home-made winter wreath? Home Sweet Home brings you 100 simple, traditional projects and advice that will reintroduce you to the joy of making things by hand and the pleasure of a home filled with individuality and charm. From making all-natural surface cleaner and removing stains to cooking the perfect Sunday roast, to laying a table and hosting a party, this sweet little book will not only help you create a cozy home but will also save you money. Today, a whole new generation is discovering the value, and pleasure, of making things for themselves, their homes, and their families.

Allen and Linda Anderson adopted a traumatized one-year-old cocker spaniel who had been abandoned. Soon, the troubled dog they named “Leaf” turned their home into a war zone. Although Leaf and Allen were forging a friendship with visits to dog parks and bonding time, Leaf’s emotional issues overwhelmed the couple. Shortly after Leaf’s arrival, Allen, who had spent eight years as a big city police officer and survived so many close calls that Linda called him “Miracle Man,” received a diagnosis from his doctor that made him think his luck had finally run out. Allen had an unruptured brain aneurysm that could be fatal, and the surgery to repair it might leave him debilitated. Having seen his father live for years with the effects of a massive stroke, he dreaded that the worst fate might not be death. What Allen didn’t know is that he and Leaf, like comrades facing the ultimate battle, would be there for each other with the miracle of this man and this dog coming together at exactly the right time. Allen Anderson and his wife Linda founded the Angel Animals Network, which helps people discover the benefits of human-animal companionship. Allen’s books on the subject have been featured on, the Today Show, ABC’s Nightly News,’s Hot 100, and B&N’s Top 10. They live in St. Louis Park, Minnesota. 57

When it comes to experiencing wine, everyone seems to be an expert with an opinion—too dry, too sweet, too robust, too tangy. It’s easy to get caught up in thinking you have to enjoy an expensive bottle of wine because some expert tells you it’s good. But Wineocology is here to tell you it is not about what the experts have to say about wine. Rather Wineocology teaches you, the reader, how to taste, about how to differentiate the good from the bad from the downright awful for your own palate and enjoyment, and about how to become an expert wine-know. Wineocology touches briefly on the three Vs of wine (viticulture, vinification, varieties) before getting to the meat of the book—the Simple Sommelier System, a comprehensive strengthening system for the senses. Through sight, smell, touch, and taste, you will learn how to observe wine, what factors to observe for each sense, and how to tie all of this information together to understand what wines work best for your palate, regardless of the price tag or outside reviews. Caitlin Stansbury has over twenty years of sommelier experience and is the owner of Wineocology (, a beverage consulting firm. Her clients include Tasca Wine Bar (2007 Best Wine Bar by the LA Times) and celebrities 50 Cent, Jessica Alba, and Axl Rose. Caitlin lives in Hollywood, California.

From the man who brought us NPR’s Uncorked!, a charming introduction to the distillers and spirits that have changed history and become legendary

Over the past decade, the cocktail culture has exploded across America. Bars and lounges have become the Broadway ­theater of mixology, with bartenders resurrecting classic pre-Prohibition cocktails and dazzling customers with their creations. Consumers, in turn, are recreating these cocktails at home and spending unprecedented amounts on upscale bar gear. With more and more emphasis on quality ingredients, the number of small-batch spirits is increasing all the time, and craft distilling has become popular as an offshoot of the locavore movement. In Iconic Spirits, Mark Spivak, wine and spirits guru and former host of the NPR show Uncorked!, explores the history and cultural significance of twelve iconic spirits and reveals how moonshine invented NASCAR; how gin almost toppled the British Empire; how a drink that tastes like castor oil flavored with tree bark became one of the sexiest things on earth; how cognac became the “it” drink of hip-hop culture, and much more. To top it all off, Spivak then offers the most tantalizing cocktail recipes from the era in which each spirit was invented. Mark Spivak is an award-winning writer whose work has appeared in National Geographic Traveler, Robb Report, Art & Antiques, and Newsmax. From 1999–2011 he hosted Uncorked! Radio, a highly successful wine talk show on the Palm Beach affiliate of National Public Radio. He lives in Boca Raton, Florida. 59

The beloved Boston Globe Cookbook, first published in 1948, has come back to life, reflecting the flavors of the twenty-first-century city. Revised and updated by Boston Globe food editor Sheryl Julian to include ethnic recipes and new twists on old New England favorites, this beautiful, illustrated book is now available in paperback.

In addition to the well-loved Boston dishes, there are fresh recipes in recognition of the many new immigrant groups that have settled here, such as Vietnamese pot-fried rice and Greek spanakopita. As Julian writes, “Every time you pick up this book, we hope you’ll find recipes that make you want to head for the kitchen and start cooking.” Sheryl Julian is the food editor of the Boston Globe where she was an award-winning food reporter. The author of The Way We Cook, she writes and stylizes a food column in the Boston Globe Magazine and lives in Boston, Massachusetts.

A harrowing true tale of fraud, mutiny, shipwreck, and cannibalism on the desolate rock known as Boon Island

Boon Island A True Story of Mutiny, Shipwreck, and Cannibalism Andrew Vietze and Stephen Erickson 978-0-7627-7752-5 ■ November 2012 $16.95 US/$18.95 CAN ■ World ■ Paper 6 x 9 ■ 224 pp ■ 24/CTN map ■ Globe Pequot HISTORY

The wreck of the Nottingham Galley on Boon Island and the resultant rumors of insurance fraud, mutiny, treason, and cannibalism was one of the most sensational stories of the early 18th century. Shortly after departing England with Captain John Deane at the helm, his brother Jasper and another investor aboard, and a skeleton crew, the ship encountered French privateers on her way to Ireland where she then lingered for weeks picking up cargo—finally heading into the North Atlantic much later in the season than was reasonably safe. Captain Deane offered one version of the events that led them to the barren rock off the coast of Maine; his crew proposed another. The story contains mysteries that endure to this day, yet no contemporary non-fiction account of the story exists. In the hands of skilled storytellers Andrew Vietze and Stephen Erickson, this becomes a historical adventure-mystery that will appeal to readers of South and The Perfect Storm. Andrew Vietze is the former Managing Editor of Down East: The Magazine of Maine, the author of six previous books, and has written for a wide array of print and online publications. He lives in Appleton, Maine. Stephen Erickson holds an MA in American History from UMASS/Amherst and is currently the president of Americans United to Rebuild Democracy. He lives in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. 64

The best, worst, most triumphant, and most humorous moments in the history of golf told in delightful, bite-sized stories. A treasure for every golf fan.

It’s a golf hall of fame, shame, and arcane. Collected in this handsome volume are more than one hundred of golf’s greatest moments—from the famous to the long forgotten—from the links of Scotland in the 1800s to the 1938 U.S. Open, the 1954 US Women’s Open to the 2010 Masters, and even to the little known Martini Invitational in 1971 . . . and starring the giants of the game down to the struggling pros and amateurs. Told in a whimsical fashion, these are stories of triumph, amazing holesin-one and other feats, hilarious gaffes, classic matchups, heart-racing final rounds, trailblazing careers, monumental breakdowns, and other incredible events no reader will ever forget. There’s the story of Jack “The Golden Bear” Nicklaus and Gary “The Black Knight” Player being attacked by killer bees on a course in South Africa in 1966; the 1954 US Women’s Open Championship won by the pioneering Babe Zaharias just one month after cancer surgery; four holes-in-one, on the same hole, in the 1989 US Open at Oak Hill Country Club, in under two hours; and much, much more If he had been able to master his short game, Dr. Joshua Shifrin might have made a living at golf rather than earning a PhD in psychology. Nevertheless, he loves the game and is still thrilled when he manages to make a knee-knocker putt in his weekend game. Josh and his family live in New Jersey. 65

From the Lyons Press Library of WWII, a rare, firsthand account of the rescue mission to aid the biggest air-supply of World War II A Military History Book Club selection “Diebold clearly possessed a gift for storytelling, and he’s got some good stories to tell. Through it all, Diebold is a man of optimism and good cheer, always eager to find the humor in situations that would defeat the less resilient. . . .

Lt. William Diebold served in the Army’s Air Transport Command in the China-Burma-India theater of World War II. Like many men who flew the eastern Himalayas, he never saw on-the-ground combat, but he fought bravely by saving lives. Flyers who crossed the Hump to keep the allied armies in China supplied with food, fuel, and weapons against Japan often flew in zerovisibility, sometimes crashing into mountains or falling prey to Japanese Zero attacks. Those pilots who survived, Bill Diebold rescued. In Hell Is So Green, he vividly describes the heat and stink of the jungle; the vermin, lice, and leeches; the towering mountains and roaring rivers. Rich with war slang, wisecracks, and old-fashioned phrases, his story reverberates with authenticity and represents the stories of so many men that have never been told. After the author’s early death, this story of courage under fire and heroism in the wilderness lay untouched in an attic for decades—until now. Lt. William Diebold wrote Hell Is So Green shortly after returning to America. He died in 1965. Richard Matthews is a feature writer whose work has appeared in the New York Times, Boston Globe, and many other publications. He lives in Phillips, Maine. 66

Heartwarming stories about one woman’s special mission to reunite hundreds of US service members with the dogs and cats they came to love during deployment

No Buddy Left Behind unveils the life-altering relationships American troops serving in the Middle East have shared with the stray dogs and cats they’ve rescued from the brutalities of war. Overcoming monumental obstacles, Operation Baghdad Pups’ program manager Terri Crisp makes it her mission to save these wartime “buddies,” get them out of danger, and bring them home to the soldiers who love them. How exactly does someone get animals out of a country at war when normal resources are lacking and every step of a plan to transport animals could get you arrested, kidnapped, or blown apart? As Crisp soon learns, each rescue mission from first to last is a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants experience, and no animal is truly safe until its paws touch U.S. soil. Terri and her team have saved the lives of 223 dogs and forty-two cats befriended by military personnel since February 2008—and No Buddy Left Behind finally tells this story. Terri Crisp is the author of Out of Harm’s Way and Emergency Animal Rescue Stories and the Program Manager for SPCA International’s Operation Baghdad Pups. She has been featured on the Oprah show, national news programs, and morning talk shows, and numerous national publications. She lives in Somerset, California. 67

A heartwarming, inspirational tale of survival and trust

Trusting Calvin How a Dog Helped Heal a Holocaust Survivor’s Heart Sharon Peters 978-0-7627-8061-7 ■ December 2012 $19.95 US/$21.95 CAN ■ US, Canada, and open market Cloth 51/2 x 71/2 ■ 192 pp ■ 12/CTN Lyons Press PETS

Max Edelman was just 17 when the Nazis took him to the first of five work camps, where his only hope of survival was to keep quiet and raise an emotional shield. After witnessing a German Shepherd kill a fellow prisoner, he developed a lifelong fear of dogs. Beaten into blindness by two bored guards, Max survived, buried the past, and moved on. But when he retired, he needed help. After a month of training, he received Calvin, a devoted chocolate Labrador retriever. Calvin guided Max safely through life, but he sensed Max’s distance and reserve. Calvin grew listless and lost weight. Trainers intervened—but to no avail. A few days before Calvin’s inevitable reassignment, Max went for a walk. A car cut into the crosswalk, and Calvin leapt forward, saving Max’s life. Max’s emotional shield dissolved. Calvin sensed the change and immediately improved, guiding Max to greater openness, trust, and engagement with the world. Here is the remarkable, touching story of a man who survived history and the dog that unlocked his heart. Sharon Peters is an award-winning journalist who has worked as a reporter, editor, or consultant for several newspapers and launched the popular weekly “Pet Talk” column in USA Today. She turned her attention to writing about animals after volunteering in Mississippi for several weeks after Hurricane Katrina. She lives in Colorado. 70

By applying the principles of clean eating to a realistic lifestyle, top journalist and working mom Dari Alexander shows how you can achieve your best body and keep that promise to yourself: to finally look like that gorgeous person you know exists. By changing your mindset and consuming foods closest to their natural state you will feel so much better—this back-to-basics, no-nonsense, weight loss and maintenance program will not only make you skinny, it will also increase your energy. Most importantly, it promotes life-long good health. The Quick and Clean Diet is all about whole grains, lean proteins, and good fats. It shuns pre-packaged, heavily processed, refined, or fast foods. It’s not about lowcarb, nor about going fat free. It’s about good fats. Expect to eat plenty of chicken, turkey, and fish — even lobster or tofu if you choose. You will also get an endless choice of vegetables and a plethora of spices. Your food will never taste boring, nor will you feel deprived; in fact, expect to eat a lot. Three levels form the basis of the diet—and the book provides delicious recipes and exercise suggestions for each level. The High Motivation segment is the rapid weight loss phase, a time designed to whip you into

shape, kill your cravings, and shrink your stomach. Within about three days you will feel unstoppable. The Grounding segment is where you continue to lose weight while reintroducing a wider variety of foods. And finally you reach the Stability segment, which becomes your roadmap for eating well for the rest of your life.


Top television anchor Dari Alexander shows how the principles of clean eating can be incorporated into your busy life, with great results

“Ramani and her book are about listening to yourself; this isn’t just a book about health and eating, it’s a really important tale about how to live a real life.” —Vanessa Williams, Actress

In You Are WHY You Eat, food becomes a digestible metaphor. If you are gorging and numbing yourself with food, are you doing the same thing in life? Instead of trying to please others all the time, what would happen if you listened to your inner voice? What if you could find a way to stop eating, stop working at a bad job, stop a bad relationship before you walk down the aisle—stop anything when you are full? Understanding WHY you eat can lead to real and lasting change—both in your weight loss and all other areas of your life. You Are WHY You Eat teaches readers to take back control in their lives. Dr. Ramani takes an iconoclastic, brave, edgy, and witty approach to self-help. She teaches you to unearth that inner voice, and let it be heard. She turns all of your childhood teachings upside down and forces you to take responsibility for your choices in life. Through real-life anecdotes and exercises, she gives you the tools you need to live on your terms, not those of the stakeholders that surround you. It will help you trust yourself and act from the gut, while making that gut smaller at the same time. And in so doing, it will help people live lives that are braver, more authentic, and less riddled with regret. You can change your food attitude and change your life!


A groundbreaking book that shows how to change your food attitudes, listen to yourself, stop living for others, and take back your body and life “Start by asking yourself one simple, but significant question: Does your life look the way you want it to look? Sadly, most of us are living in a script written by other people, and as a result, many of us learned long ago to stop trusting our own instincts. If we can’t listen to our bodies and do something as simple as push away a plate of food when we are full, how can we listen to ourselves when it comes to the rest of our lives?”

Dr. Ramani Durvasula was featured on Bravo’s THINtervention and will be seen in Fall, 2012, on a new series on Oxygen. Her talk and news show appearances include Dr. Oz, Dr. Drew’s Lifechangers, and Anderson Cooper. She is a Professor of Psychology at California State University, Los Angeles, and a licensed clinical psychologist. She lives in Los Angeles, California. Visit her at

A provocative new take on the perfect economic storm—with a foreword by P. J. O’Rourke “Michael Farr is one of the smartest people I know, and in The Arrogance Cycle he’s put forward a terrifying thesis: Markets aren’t always as rational as we assume. What can you do to protect yourself? Read it. This is a genuinely deep book.” —Tucker Carlson

Avoiding the Arrogance Cycle What Every Investor Needs to Know to Protect Their Assets From the Next Big Bubble Michael K. Farr Foreword by P. J. O’Rourke 978-0-7627-6412-9 ■ January 2013 $16.95 US/$18.95 CAN ■ North America ■ Paper 6 x 9 ■ 240 pp ■ 24/CTN Previous Edition: The Arrogance Cycle; Cloth 09/2011; 978-0-7627-6435-8 ■ Lyons Press BUSINESS & ECONOMICS

How do the average investors protect their assets? How do they keep their financial goals in sight and their arrogance in check? Investment guru Michael Farr has counseled thousands of his clients on just that. In Avoiding the Arrogance Cycle, Farr examines the psychology of investing and sets it against the historical and cultural forces at work on individuals and markets and explains in clear, concise layman terms how we just lived through the worst financial disaster since the Great Depression. He focuses on the individual factors such as rampant consumerism, a sense of entitlement, and narcissism that combined to create the perfect economic storm. Farr provides first-hand accounts of real client situations to create a profile and case study of the arrogant investor. He sifts through the wreckage of previous crashes and downturns and finds evidence to support his contention that collectively we are the ones responsible. Through the lens of arrogance, this book sheds light on our recent financial past and offers a means to detect these insidious attitudes so that in the future we can contain the damage before it spreads. Michael Farr is President and majority owner of Farr, Miller & Washington, LLC. In addition, Mr. Farr is a regular commentator and guest host for CNBC, CNN, Bloomberg, Reuters, and the Nightly Business Report. He is heard on Associated Press Radio, ABC Radio News, and National Public Radio. Mr. Farr is quoted regularly in the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Fortune, Washington Post, USA Today, and many other publications. He lives in Washington, D.C., Delaware, and Florida. 86

The inspiration for and subject of the award-winning documentary Buck “Buck Brannaman is no ordinary horseman. He is demonstrating his way of turning frightened horses into friends, a way that has more to do with respect and trust than mastery or manhandling.” —Smithsonian magazine

I’ve started horses since I was 12 years old and have been bit, kicked, bucked off and run over. I’ve tried every physical means to contain my horse in an effort to keep from getting myself killed. I started to realize that things would come much easier for me once I learned why a horse does what he does. This method works well for me because of the kinship that develops between horse and rider. —Buck Brannaman

Take the mystery out of sharing the joys of fly fishing with your loved ones.

The Orvis Guide to Family Friendly Fly Fishing Tom Rosenbauer 978-0-7627-7908-6 ■ October 2012 $17.95 US/$19.95 CAN ■ World ■ Paper 6 x 9 ■ 304 pp ■ 24/CTN full-color photos ■ Lyons Press SPORTS & RECREATION

Like all sports, the fun of fly-fishing lies in sharing the experience and in spending time with those closest to you. And yet for a father unsure how to connect with his bored PlayStation-dazed kids, for a beginning fisherman who doesn’t want to learn casting techniques by himself, and for a mother who would love to show her children the outdoors but isn’t quite sure how to begin, it can be a frustrating and intimidating business. From one of the most trusted brands in the industry, and from one of the sport’s most esteemed authors, The Orvis Guide to Family Friendly Fly-Fishing by Tom Rosenbauer will take the mystery out of sharing the experience. Rosenbauer provides instructional guidance, discusses the nuts and bolts of casting, fly choice, and technique, and opens the lens to discuss family friendly destinations, gear, schools, safety, and more. Rosenbauer brings his expertise to bear on perhaps the most essential skill set of all—introducing the people closest to you to your beloved sport. Tom Rosenbauer, host of the Orvis Fly Fishing Podcasts, has been with the Orvis Company over thirty years. Named Fly Rod & Reel magazine’s 2011 Angler of the Year, he is the author of The Orvis Fly-Fishing Guide, one of the best-selling fly-fishing books ever. He lives in southern Vermont on the banks of his favorite trout stream. 97

Stoecklein Publishing celebrates the sport and tradition of fly fishing for steelhead in the pristine rivers of Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. Often a solitary, cold, and damp pursuit, steelhead fishing attracts individuals who embrace the mystery and challenge of searching for these elusive fish throughout the year, patiently waiting for that surge of adrenaline when a steelhead grabs the line. David Stoecklein’s son, Drew, conveys a passion for these majestic, beautiful fish with eye-catching photographs of gorgeous waters, sparkling fish, and the colorful flies and tireless fishermen who hunt for them. Stoecklein’s photographs are accompanied by riveting essays and journal entries written by legendary fly fisherman and guide, Will Godfrey, whose enthusiasm for the quest is captivating and contagious. Will Godfrey learned the finer points of fly fishing from his father at an early age. In 1967 he established Will Godfrey Fly ­Fishing Centers at Last Chance, Idaho, on the Henry’s Fork of the Snake River and in Boise, Idaho. He has been an out­ fitter and guide for more than 20 years. Will is an accomplished writer, speaker, fly fisherman, and has been honored with the ­Federation of Flyfishers Man of the Year Award, the FFF Presidential Award, and the Eastern Idaho Fly Fishing Heritage Award. Drew Stoecklein’s early years in Sun Valley, Idaho, fueled his passion for the outdoors and photography. He honed his skills at Brooks Institute of Photography and Montana State University in Bozeman. Today he lives in Salt Lake City, Utah, where he continues his career as a professional photographer and big mountain skier. 98

The history, equipment, and drills necessary to understand the hackamore and improve its use

The Art of Hackamore Training A Time-Honored Step in the Bridle-Horse Tradition Al Dunning and Benny Guitron 978-0-7627-8056-3 ■ October 2012 $24.95 US/$27.50 CAN ■ World ■ Paper 81/2 x 107⁄8 ■ 136 pp ■ 12/CTN full-color photos ■ Western Horseman SPORTS & RECREATION

Old-time California vaqueros left a fine tradition as a legacy to horsemen today—the bridle horse, the ultimate in finesse and control. Time-tested practices passed from generation to generation go into making a bridle horse, and hackamore training is an important step in the process. The Art of Hackamore Training addresses the origin of this unusual skill and its place in the bridlehorse tradition, as well as the unique gear specific to the art, such as the bosal, fiador, and mecate. Hackamore theory, benefits, and principles are followed by practical applications—how to use groundwork to introduce the hackamore, key points for success under saddle, and drills, exercises and maneuvers to refine the hackamore horse’s response. From groundwork to key points under saddle, the authors provide drills to improve such skills as “connecting the horse’s face to his feet,” turnarounds, stops and fencing, as well as how to use these skills in handling cattle. A final chapter addresses the quarto riendas, or four-rein, which uses both snaffle and hackamore, and dos riendas, or two-rein, the finishing touch from hackamore to full bridle horse. Benny Guitron was born in California in 1948 and inspired by the great horsemen of his day. He set out to be like those horsemen and to train horses in ways honorable to tradition. Soaking up all available knowledge made the young man into the renowned horsemen he is today. Al Dunning currently trains out of his Almosta Ranch in Scottsdale, Arizona, where he has lived for more than fifty years. There, the combination of inspiration, good mentors, and hard work paved the way to Dunning’s success in the horse industry. 100

“Mining Childhood showcases fascinating research. The voices from the oral histories are engaging and powerful. It’s a great piece of work and a wonderful read.” —Mary Murphy, Montana State University professor of history and author of Mining Cultures: Men, Women, and Leisure in Butte, 1914–41

Mining Childhood offers a fresh perspective on Montana history. Drawing from a broad range of archival materials and oral histories, the book offers a child’s-eye view of Butte’s history and considers how social, political, and economic forces left their marks on its children. With its rich stories, the book captures the experiences of school, play, and work by exploring children’s joys and miseries, their keen impressions of life in Butte, and the varied lessons learned. These stories illuminate the meaning and purpose of mining life in Butte: people lived with the hardships and dangers of mining life so that their children might have a life beyond mining. Children were, quite simply, Butte’s reason to be. Janet L. Finn is professor of social work at the University of Montana and faculty member in the international development studies and gender studies departments. She has written extensively about Butte and childhood. 114

The History of the Assiniboine and Sioux Tribes of the Fort Peck Indian Reservation, Montana, 1600–2012, 2nd

regional interest

The History of the Assiniboine and Sioux Tribes of the Fort Peck Indian Reservation, Montana, 1600–2012 is an authoritative scholarly exploration of the struggles and triumphs of the Native Americans who were relegated by the federal government to a small portion of northeast Montana in the late 1880s. Written by five scholars of Native American studies, most of whom are native themselves, the narrative tracks the tribes through the brutal early reservation period, two world wars, the turbulent 1960s, and into the twentyfirst century. With research drawn from primary sources, including federal archives and private materials, this book is a benchmark in the publication of tribal histories with a native point of view.

Brazil’s Pantanal, a vast wetland of 21,000 square kilometres, is a mecca for wildlife tourism

Where to go in South America South America is a magnificently varied part of the world and tremendously hospitable. It is a tantalizing mixture of enticing images and ambiguous press reports, inspiring an air of mystery and a certain amount of trepidation. In common with many other places, South America suffers from meteorological, geological and social uncertainties. Within that context you will find some of the most dramatic landscapes on earth, biological diversity in a range of habitats, historical monuments of strength and elegance and a deep cultural resilience.

Further in the north overlooking the Caribbean and south, beautiful lakes in Chile and Argentina ends in the south in the fabulous towers and shelter beneath snowcapped peaks. On their spires of the Chaitén Massif and the Torres shores are resorts for summer watersports, del Paine National Park. Condors patrol its fishing and winter skiing.

The shores of Lake Titicaca are home to ancient cultures, unchanged for centuries


Forests and wetlands In the heart of the continent, the Amazon Basin contains 20% of the world’s plant and bird species, 10% of the mammals and an inestimable number of insects. In the waters live some 2000 species of fish, plus shy giant otters, caiman and two species of freshwater dolphin. There are trees that strangle their neighbours, palms with a million thorns, plants that heal and vines that will blow your mind. Stalking in the undergrowth is the mythical jaguar, whose influence has spread through almost every religion that has come into contact with the rainforest. On its perimeter, cattle and cowboys share the land with wild birds and animals in the llanos of the Orinoco and the wetlands of the Brazilian/Bolivian

Pantanal, while mysterious ecosystems hide on table top mountains on the Venezuela/Brazil border and in Bolivia.

Islands and beaches On the Pacific, at islands such as the Ballestas (Peru) and Isla de la Plata (Ecuador) you can see much marine life, but the destination par excellence is the Galápagos. On the peaks of massive volcanoes, which jut into the ocean, albatross, boobies, giant tortoises and iguanas have evolved with little instinctive fear of man, a paradise for naturalists. Meanwhile, the Atlantic coast of Brazil, all 7408 km of it, is an endless succession of beaches, in wooded coves, dotted with islands in the south, palm tree- and dune-fringed in the north.

The Galápagos Islands are world-renowned for their fearless wildlife

With over 750 carefully chosen B&Bs this well-loved guide is bigger than ever. Stay in a quirky castle or a stunning college, a beamy farmhouse or a handsome townhouse, a little terraced cottage or a sleek modern apartment, and enjoy the lavish or the simple—over 300 places have double rooms for £70 or less. We look for character and authenticity in architecture and interiors, and generosity of spirit in our owners. Breakfast will also be special: eggs and bacon perhaps from owners’ own livestock, often homemade breads and jams. Stay for supper and there’ll be fruits and vegetables from the garden or allotment. Honest write-ups take the hard work out of finding the right place for you: somewhere remote to walk your dog, a child-friendly city bolt hole, a delicious hideaway for two.

The Northwest Passage is an ice-choked waterway with spectacular landscapes and a powerful history of naval endeavor. It is also an unfolding opportunity for adventurous travel, with incomparable scenery and a wealth of wildlife. Over the last decade global warming has opened this fabled passage in late summer for freight and for bold tourists. This is the first book to draw together the rich history with a guide to the region—home for the majority of the world’s seabirds, enormous numbers of seals, plenty of polar bears and narwhals, and more than enough mosquitoes.

E. T. Laing’s career in ports and shipping has taken him around the world for over forty years. He lives with his family in London.


A unique collection of brief encounters and adventures from working in seventy countries—a kaleidoscope of landscapes, sounds, smells, politics, humor, dialogue, and, above all, people. This is a warts-and-all account of the author’s travels, with disasters and miseries alongside the high points. He takes you to danger zones, to wars of startling savagery in Sierra Leone, Pakistan, and Angola, to coups and dubious elections. He narrowly avoids death in India, Mexico, and Nigeria. In other episodes he simply savors the pleasures of traveling alone. As the author says, “Nothing sharpens the understanding more than seeing things done ten different ways in ten different countries.”

Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula is the small tooth of land between Africa and Asia, and the fabled Biblical setting of The Exodus. It’s a region of high mountains and sweeping deserts, crumbling Egyptian temples, Byzantine monasteries, and more. The millions that visit Sinai each year come mostly for its beaches and reefs but for a true adventure, the best way to see Sinai is to trek with the Bedouin. Walking with their camels gives access to the most remote and waterless parts of the peninsula and no other mode of travel immerses you so fully in your surroundings nor gives such a close feel for the desert—its freedoms and hardships. Sinai can be trekked all year and it’s on the doorstep of Europe. Budget airlines fly direct and the trekking is affordable if you organize everything independently. Once you finish on trail it’s easy to stay occupied off it: there are coral reefs and sunken shipwrecks off shore and the tombs and temples of Egypt’s Nile Valley are just a short hop over the Gulf. ■■

74 detailed trekking maps—tricky junctions, places of interest. Comprehensive trail descriptions and GPS co-ordinates for classic treks and lesser-known routes. The best in the High Mountain Region (St. Katherine), Wadi Feiran and the Muzeina deserts.

Doug Mayer is a producer for the National Public Radio program Car Talk and contributes to the journal Appalachia. He lives in Randolph, New Hampshire.

The essence of tango dancing is addressed in this intriguing book: milongas, the head nod, dance styles, dress code, improvisation styles, different rhythms . . . But, in addition to dance, this book covers many other aspects of the genre, such as, for example, those relating to music: from the indisputable characters—such as Astor Piazzolla and Carlos Gardel—to the bandoneon, the typical orchestra and the so-called 2 x 4 rhythm, which erroneously describes tango. Moreover, tango keys, that is, those “keys” that open a huge and varied universe include those places where the genre was or is alive and present, such as bars, neighborhoods, the carnival, or the city of Buenos Aires itself. The tango lyrics and the poets who wrote them have their own keys because it must be remembered that a large part of those lyrics is genuine popular poetry that covers all imaginable topics: finding and losing love, suffering, loneliness, disappointment. Also, the neighborhood, horses races (great tango theme!), cafés, friendship, soccer, courage, work, social claim, carnival, the port, the sea, alcohol, landscapes, smoking and—believe it or not—overweight issues, as in “Gorda” (in Spanish “fat”), 1928.

Poor posture can interfere with mobility, breathing, circulation, and digestion. It can contribute to overuse injuries to hands, arms, and shoulders, and it can affect our sense of well-being. Drawing on her 30 years of experience as a teacher of the Alexander Technique, Carolyn Nicholls explains exactly how to eliminate tension throughout the body and improve habitual patterns of movement. Carolyn identifies typical behaviors that can result in unhealthy posture and explains how they can be improved. Five key exercises to improve posture, awareness, flexibility, and mobility are identified. The Posture Workbook also explains exactly how problems arise—whether through holding tension in certain parts of the body or relying on unhelpful, habitual patterns of movement.

Heads up No Limit Hold’em is arguably the most important poker game. The quick action makes it very exciting in its own right but it’s also crucial for the final stages of tournament play. This book will give players the edge. The key themes, which are expounded at length in this book, include how to: ■■

yusupov’s chess school

Our best-selling series of opening books is aimed at a high level, but is enjoyed by all chess players. Volume 1 topped the Opening books of the decade list in New in Chess (the top chess magazine); the quote being “the ultimate trend-setting opening book.” Volumes 2, 3, 8 and 9 have won the Opening Book of the Year vote on the leading forum for opening books, Chesspublishing​.com. Volume 10 was published in January 2012 and ten more are planned for 2012/13.

With his nine-volume series of chess education, twice World Championship semi-finalist Artur Yusupov has provided the best instructional series for amateurs and talented youngsters ever published. The series concludes with Chess Evolution 2—Beyond the Basics (Fall 2012) and Chess Evolution 3—Mastery (Spring 2013). The series won the first ever Boleslavsky Medal for Best chess instruction awarded by the World Chess Federation (with Garry Kasparov’s series My Great Predecessors in second place).
