Gail Fraser and her artist-husband Art Poulin believe that they have found a way to maneuver around the potholes of life by living simply and purposefully. They have been fortunate to enjoy a life of elegant simplicity on their 40-acre gentleman’s farm and artist retreat in upstate New York where they can create their art. This book opens a window into their world of tranquility—a stark contrast to today’s times, a kind of visual chicken soup for the soul. Combining Art’s landscape paintings and Gail’s thoughtful words, Finding Happiness in Simplicity provides a charming but deeply compelling message that there are everyday joys to be realized and that these small things can bring us closer to a more fulfilling life. The recommended joys of simple living are grouped by season and include: Plant Seeds in the Earth, Know Where Your Home Is, Be Joyful with Animals, Honor Friends and Family, Lose Yourself in a Small Town, and more.

More than 5.3 million Americans suffer from Alzheimer’s, and nearly 11 million family members and friends serve as unpaid caregivers. Love, Loss, and Laughter challenges the typical perception of people with Alzheimer’s as “empty shells,” lost to themselves and others. Endorsed by Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI), this important work melds uplifting photographs with thoughtful text by the author, care partners, researchers, medical practitioners, social care providers, activists, and people living with dementia diagnoses. While research for a cure will one day bring an end to the problem, this inspirational book shows and tells how today we can achieve ADI’s vision of “a better life for people with dementia and their carers.” More than one hundred touching photographs—taken in homes, memory clinics, day programs, and residential centers in the US, France, India, Japan, the Dominican Republic and Canada—are interwoven with insightful commentaries from thirty-five international contributors whose personal experiences and statements about good practices reinforce the author’s message: People with dementia

retain vital capacities. Their quality of life can be significantly enhanced via person-centered care that increases confidence, nourishes capacities, and opens better communication challenges. While there is great sadness in losing one’s cognitive abilities, family members and caregivers can also share a wealth of love and moments of joy. With the help of this book, our view of Alzheimer’s can shift from “the long goodbye” to “the long hello.”

She has authored more than 100 professional articles and 14 books. Her award-winning photographs of aging, Alzheimer’s, and palliative care have been exhibited worldwide.

’ve changed my mind about Alzheimer’s disease. I hope this book will help change yours. For years I accepted the stereotypical view of people with dementia, one characterized by fear and despair about their changing brains and the consequences of that change. What I saw in homes, day care centers, memory clinics and residential communities in several countries over the past decade challenged that mindset. People living with dementia, along with their family and professional caregivers, offered a much more hopeful vision. They taught me that there are effective strategies for maintaining capacities, independence, and quality of life. It is indeed possible to alter what is referred to as “the long goodbye” into “a long hello.” I subsequently read about the paradigm shift underlying this new approach. Psycho-gerontologist Tom Kitwood pointed the way from a biomedical model to a social model, and others have built upon his writings and work. This groundbreaking approach calls for viewing and treating dementing illnesses primarily as disabilities. A revolutionary conclusion: How the individual is affected by the disability is dramatically shaped by quality of care. Enhancement of personhood and efforts to maintain quality of life should be our highest priorities

I am using “Alzheimer’s disease” loosely as an inclusive term, since it is the way most people refer to the full set of disorders. As Peter Whitehouse and Danny George explain in The Myth of Alzheimer’s, it is imperative to recognize that changes in our brains as we age are brought about by a myriad of environmental, psychological, biological, medical, social and cultural factors. Recognizing that complexity is part of the key to changing your mind It is also crucial to understand that the symptoms observed in people with dementia are not all caused by changes in the brain. Apathy, depression, confrontational behavior and other symptoms are at least in part the results of responses to the disease and to the person suffering from it. Much of the decline in capacity comes from care practices that further diminish the spirit of the ill person. Patients who are pitied become pitiful; those treated as hopeless lose hope; those treated as helpless become more helpless. In this book you will see individuals and families across social and economic classes, from several countries, helped to live with their losses through love and laughter. Person-centered care can diminish depression, apathy, agitation, frustration, anger, and guilt for those who suffer and for their caregivers. Despair and anguish can be significantly reduced by treating people as persons, not patients — establishing

abundantly under the dominion of Jupiter, and therefore the fruit must needs breed good blood, and yield commendable nourishment to the body; yet if eaten overmuch, they make the blood thick, procure head-ach, and bind the body; the inner skin, that covereth the nut, is of so binding a quality, that a scruple of it taken by a man, or ten grains by a child, soon stops any flux whatsoever: The whole nut being dried and beaten into powder, and a dram taken at a time, is a good remedy to stop the terms in women. If you dry chesnuts, (only the kernels I mean) both the barks being taken away, beat them into powder, and make the powder into an electuary with honey, so have you an admirable remedy for the cough and spitting of blood.’ Easy to peel, unlike their spiky ‘conker’ cousins, horse chestnuts, sweet chestnuts can be eaten raw but are usually roasted. They also make an excellent stuffing for turkey and pheasant. Chestnut leaves were chewed

or made into tea as a popular remedy in fever and ague, for their tonic and astringent properties. Chestnut powder was sold for paroxysmal and convulsive coughs. The candied nuts are sold as marron glacés.

HISTORY: It was introduced into Europe from Sardis in Asia Minor, thus the fruit was called the ‘Sardian nut’. Theophrastus called it the ‘Euboean nut’ from the large Greek island in the Adriatic, where it was abundant. Roman soldiers were given chestnut porridge before entering battle. Evelyn spoke of chestnuts as ‘delicacies for princes and a lusty and masculine food for rusticks, and able to make women well-complexioned’, and then complained that in England they were chiefly given to pigs. In many European countries, they are sold, freshly roasted, by street vendors as a snack. Chestnut wood is more durable than oak for woodwork that has to be partially sunk in the ground, such as stakes and fenceposts. Because of this, it was used for making pitprops, wine barrels, house building and household furniture. In hop-growing areas it was in great demand for hop poles.

old remedy for obesity, which may have been associated with its laxative properties. The juice was once taken to combat scurvy. Fresh chickweed can be eaten in summer salads and can be fed to pets to assist in the expulsion of hair balls, and sooth the digestive tract.

HISTORY: It can be used both internally and externally for healing and has been used throughout history to stop bleeding in the stomach and bowels. Chickweed has been used as a culinary herb in Britain since at least the Middle Ages. Paracelsus in 1530 described it as ‘The Elixir of Life...one of the supreme healers’.

DESCRIPTION: This small creeping plant is found everywhere, throughout the year; it has small white starry flowers on weak stems. PROPERTIES AND USES: ‘It is a

fine soft pleasing herb under the dominion of the Moon. The herb bruised or the juice applied with cloths or sponges dipped therein to the region of the liver, and as they dry to have it fresh applied, doth wonderfully temperate the heat of the liver’, Nicholas Culpeper. Chickweed is best known for its ability to cool inflammation and speed healing for internal or external flare-ups. Herbalists often recommend it as a poultice or ointment for minor burns, insect bites, skin irritations, skin abscesses and boils. Chickweed’s use as a wound herb is probably due to its saponin content. It can cool inflammation and speed healing. It is used for rashes, particularly when associated with dryness and itching. Chickweed is an effective and gentle laxative. Chickweed water is an

Chicken Feed Chickweed is a favourite source of food for chickens kept outdoors, hence its name. ‘Scarwort’ alludes to its healing properties for skin abrasions, and ‘stitchwort’ probably applies to chickweed lotion being used when wounds have been stitched. All varieties of chickweed share the interesting practice termed the Sleep of Plants, when every night (and when the weather is cloudy) the leaves fold over the tender buds and the new shoots.

Nicholas Culpeper’s The English Physitian: or an Astrologo-physical Discourse of the Vulgar Herbs of This Nation is more commonly known as “Culpeper’s Complete Herbal.” It was first printed in September 1653 (Culpeper died in January 1654) and immediately became a classic reference that is as fascinating today as it was more than 350 years ago. Breverton’s Complete Herbal is a reworking of that classic text for a modern-day audience. The book identifies each of Culpeper’s herbs and spices, with a description of their appearance and Latin name/family; plus descriptions of the herbs’ uses in medicine, dyeing, and/or cuisine from the Greeks to the present day. Informative and entertaining, it is packed with interesting facts associated with herbs. For example, most herbs have their uses attached to their old names: Lungwort cured lung illnesses, Fleabane was strewn to get rid of fleas, Wolfbane poisoned wolves, and Henbane killed chickens. Dog’s Grass was chewed by dogs when they were sick, EyeBright cured eye illnesses, Ducks-Meat was pond-algae, Gout-Herb cured gout, Mad-Wort cured the bite of a mad dog, Heart’s-Ease was for heart illness, and Rupture-Wort and Spleen-Wort helped ruptures and spleen illnesses. Arranged alphabetically, Breverton’s Complete Herbal describes 250 herbs and spices while containing feature sidebars and spreads on scented herb/medicinal gardens, the great herbalists, as well as New World herbs. Terry Breverton is a former businessman, consultant and academic, and now a full-time writer. Terry has presented documentaries on the Discovery Channel. He lives in the United Kingdom.

From 1985 to 1992, The Baseball Hall of Shame series chronicled more than 100 years of baseball goofs and gaffes, selling more than 700,000 copies. Now, the authors of the most offbeat baseball books ever written are back, featuring their looniest lineup of classic stories and inducting their first new class of Hall of Shamers in twenty years. Bruce Nash and Allan Zullo cover everything from the battiest batters and craziest fielding fiascoes to the dumbest ballpark promotions and screwiest fan behavior. Hall of Shamers include outfielder Lou “The Mad Russian” Novikoff, who insisted his wife taunt him from the stands because it made him a better hitter . . . Pitcher Burleigh Grimes, who was so mean that he threw a beanball at the on-deck hitter . . . Outfielder Ping Bodie, who out-ate Percy the ostrich for the spaghetti-eating championship of the world . . . and Babe Ruth, who wore ladies’ silk stockings for good luck. Among the new inductees are Ken Griffey Jr., who put a cow in manager Lou Piniella’s office to pay off a steak dinner bet . . . Manny Ramirez, who abandoned left field to go to the bathroom during a game . . . and David “Big Papi” Ortiz, whose underwear was smeared with peanut butter as payback for the pranks he pulled on teammates. Filled with more than 200 stories and packed with photos, The Baseball Hall of Shame: The Best of Bloopers­ town is the most hilarious homage to the national pastime ever assembled, and a fitting testament to the Hall’s motto: “Fame and shame are part of the game.” Bruce Nash, president of Nash Entertainment, is the creator and producer of more than 80 television series and specials, including “Before They Were Stars,” “Magic’s Biggest Secrets Finally Revealed,” “Meet My Folks,” and “Who Wants To Be A Superhero?” His “Modern Marvels” series is one of cable’s longest running programs, with more than 500 one-hour episodes.

Acclaimed baseball writer and radio host George Castle recreates the sport’s most revolutionary decade via the memories of those who played, managed, and covered baseball from 1969 to 1979. During these ten years, baseball arose from a sport perceived as slow and old-fashioned (playing second-fiddle to the booming NFL) to become faster-paced, more inclusive, and progessive. In addition to a remarkable array of Hall of Famers and budding stars, the era saw numerous major changes. Rules were tweaked to promote offense. Free agency, arbitration, the first players’ strike, the designated hitter, the first African-American manager, the first all-black and Latin starting lineup, baseball’s first $1 million annual salary, the rise of the closer and bullpen specialization, Tommy John surgery—the list of topics discussed in this book by baseball’s participants of the 1970s goes on.

The Ultimate Baseball Road-Trip, 2nd A Fan’s Guide to Major League Stadiums Josh Pahigian and Kevin O’Connell 978-0-7627-7340-4 ■ March 2012 $24.95 US/$27.50 CAN ■ World ■ Paper ■ 71/2 x 91/4 544 pp ■ 12/CTN ■ Previous edition: 03/2004; 9781592281596 ■ 85 b&w photos throughout Lyons Press ■ SPORTS & RECREATION

The Ultimate Baseball Road-Trip is part travel manual, part ballpark atlas, part baseball history book, part restaurant and city guide, and, not least, part epic narrative. Years ago, two baseball fanatics and entertaining writers set out to create a comprehensive guide to all the diverse and fascinating ballparks throughout the country. For the second edition, they’ve done it again, providing updated information on every venue from Boston to L.A., plus brand new chapters for the brand new parks, like the new Yankee Stadium, Philadelphia’s Citizens Bank Park, the new Busch Stadium in St. Louis, the Mets’ Citi Field, San Diego’s PETCO Park, Nationals Park in Washington, DC, the Twins’ Target Field, and Miami’s Marlins Ballpark. With this book, you can skillfully plan and fully appreciate a road-trip or a visit to any single park. Included are ticket and travel information, a detailed guide to the best and worst seats in each park, folklore and statistics on each park, tips on each park’s trademark foods, and profiles of nearby sports bars and baseball attractions. Funny and irreverent and loaded with information, the book encompasses all the essential elements of a full-blown baseball road-trip. Josh Pahigian is the author of 101 Baseball Places to See Before You Strike Out (2008 Casey Award finalist), and The Ultimate Minor League Baseball Road-Trip (both from Lyons Press), among other books. He has written for the ESPN.com Sports Travel site. He lives in Buxton, Maine. Kevin O’Connell is co-author of Why I Hate the Yankees. He lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

“I am no cordon bleu chef, nor am I a doctor or nutritionist, but I have picked up some pieces of information over the years about health and nutrition. Without getting too complicated, I wanted to present in this book some of what I do to stay healthy. This is the basic eating regime I follow. It’s not really a secret at all. I call it the common sense diet!” —Olivia Newton-John

Recipes in Livwise have been put together using Newton-John’s own experience in the kitchen and with the help of nutritionists and chefs from Gaia, her Australian health retreat. The resulting meals are imaginative, tasty, and very healthy. For example: poached eggs with cilantro pesto for breakfast, lunch of chickpea patties and a carrot salad with papaya and orange dressing, and dinner of trout with cauliflower puree and lime balsamic dressing. The common thread throughout these recipes is the food philosophy behind them and the importance of eating a healthy, balanced diet along with regular exercise, to help your body find its own natural balance.

Roast butternut squash with taleggio, There was a time when I couldn’t be bothered with squash. This was largely down to them being a pain walnuts to peel. Unless you have a viciously sharp peeler you need to resort to using a knife, which you are and honey liable to end up sticking in your wrist – a little too perilous for my liking. So imagine my joy when I discovered that there is absolutely no need to peel squash. When roasted, the skin goes pleasingly chewy, rather like garlic skin.

Serves 2

1 small butternut squash, scrubbed a sprig of thyme, leaves picked salt and pepper olive oil 20g flat-leaf parsley, leaves only a handful of shelled walnuts, roughly chopped 100g taleggio cheese 2 tsp runny honey

19

Preheat the oven to 200°C/Gas 6. Top and tail the squash and cut in half lengthways. Scoop out the seeds and cut into thick wedges. Toss in the thyme leaves, salt, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil and cook in the oven for 45 minutes. Serve with a scattering of parsley leaves and walnuts, slices of taleggio, honey and a drizzle of oil. #roastsquashsalad

Tart – Well, you can tart this quite literally. Roast the squash as above, then place on some ready-rolled puff pastry, top with the taleggio and a drizzle of oil and put in the oven for 20 minutes at 180°C/Gas 4. Finish off with the walnuts, honey and parsley.

Tweak – If you struggle to find taleggio then you could use goats cheese instead, or try a soft French cheese like Munster.

Tomorrow – Roughly chop any leftovers and toss through couscous for a lovely salad.

n theological language, Christians are called easter people. yet, one cannot recognize the joy of easter unless one has gone through the dark of

Good Friday’s sorrow. easter Sun-day would have no meaning without the dark of Passion Week, the Great Week, as the Greek orthodox call it. The saddest day of the week is Friday, the terrible day of death. All over the country, the mournful pealing of church bells prepares the populace for the solemnity of the day. on and on they ring their deep adagio song of death, commemorated that night with the epitáphios, the symbolic bier of the dead Christ being carried from neighborhood to neighborhood, to the main square of the village, and finally back to church. The bier is followed by a pro-

cession of clergy and acolytes with only candles for light. In the cities, people stand on their balconies holding candles and making the sign of the cross while the bier passes below. on Good saturday, the bells continue their mournful dirge. near midnight the churches fill so that the people may receive the new light of resurrection while “Christós

21

Around A Greek Table Recipes & Stories Arranged According to the Liturgical Seasons of the Eastern Church Katerina Katsarka Whitley photographs by Jasmin Hejazi 978-0-7627-7836-2 ■ April 2012 $19.95 US/$21.95 CAN ■ World ■ Paper ■ 71/2 x 91/4 224 pp ■ 12/CTN ■ full-color photos ■ Lyons Press COOKING

Kefi, loosely translated, is the Greek sense of joy, and is often found around the dinner table during large and boisterous family meals of Spanakopita, Keftedes (Greek meatballs), and much, much more. Largely considered a bit of a mystery to Americans, Greek cooking is far more expansive than simply prepping up a few gyro sandwiches and Greek salads. There is an earthiness about Greek cooking, an amalgam of many historic influences. Lighter than southern Italian, much less pretentious than French, much more refined than Middle Eastern, Greek cuisine at its best is aromatic, tasty, and satisfying. Around a Greek Table explores the intricacies of Greek cooking and makes these once-mysterious recipes both understandable and possible. The book also delves deep into stories of Greek life and kefi around the dinner table. The 100 recipes are organized around the Eastern Church’s yearly seasons, each explored in one of eight chapters, with historical and personal essays exploring the ancient stories that are told around Greek tables in the honored tradition of combining myths with food. Katerina Katsarka Whitley is a native Greek who never lost her connections to Greece. Her freelance writing on Greek culture, food, and travel has appeared in the News and Observer (Raleigh, NC), The Catholic Middle East, and other religious journals, and in The Christian Science Monitor. Today she travels the country as a regular speaker at various religious organizations.

This sumptuously illustrated cookbook features authentic recipes from over thirty agriturismi (working family farms that provide room & board to travelers) in central and southern Italy, where the cuisine served epitomizes the farm-fresh movement underway in the United States and beyond. Visitors to agriturismi, who come from all over Europe and North America, indulge in such delights as vibrant green olive oil fresh from the press, a myriad of hand-shaped pastas cooked to perfection, and wedges of aged pecorino redolent of verdant green pastures. Professional chefs who are fluent in Italian, Matthew and Melissa have transcribed more than 150 authentic Italian recipes from these family farms—few of which are found in cookbooks available outside of Italy. Full-color photographs and anecdotes about the farms and their residents bring Italy’s glorious countryside to life and complement such recipes as fried spaghetti nests, crepe lasagna with pork ragu, spicy Calabrian chicken, and sweet cakes filled with ricotta and chocolate. All recipe ingredients are given in both U.S. and metric measurements. Matthew Scialabba and Melissa Pellegrino, a husband-and-wife cooking and writing team, met while living in Italy. Their shared passion for Italian food and culture led them on many culinary journeys, including apprenticeships at a Roman bakery, studying winemaking at a Ligurian vineyard, graduating from professional culinary schools in Manhattan and Florence, and working and cooking together at several Italian agriturismi. They are authors of The Italian Farmer’s Table, and owners of Bufalina wood fired pizza in Guilford, Connecticut.

“Sharks, ancient or modern, real or imaginary, have always been with us, and will probably remain with us forever. They appear not only in movies and literature, but in countless permutations of size, shape, and materials, permeating our daily lives with their silent menace. In a sense, humans live in a world replete with sharks, not ­vice-versa.” Thus Richard Ellis sets about chronicling and debunking the myths of sharks throughout history. From eighteenth-century art to the phenomena of Jaws, “the shark” has remained the indomitable aggressor of the deep, the last demon of humankind. The image of the shark and the fear it inspires infiltrates our daily lives with its mythical power and strength. But it is not man who should fear the shark. Our need to dominate these predators is destroying them and their habitat. Through hundreds of full-color images, Ellis proves the necessity of preserving these majestic creatures. As curator of the Ft. Lauderdale Museum of Art’s exhibition entitled “Shark,” debuting May 2012, Ellis adeptly turns these sleek, efficient hunters from monsters of the deep into rare, beautiful forces of nature. Richard Ellis is one of America’s most celebrated marine artists and writers. A research associate at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, he is the author of sixteen books. He lives in New York City.

The Cornbread Mafia A Homegrown Syndicate’s Code of Silence and the Biggest Marijuana Bust in American History James Higdon 978-0-7627-7823-2 ■ April 2012 $24.95 US/$27.50 CAN ■ North America ■ Cloth ■ 6 x 9 368 pp ■ 24/CTN ■ 8-page photo insert ■ Lyons Press TRUE CRIME

In the summer of 1987, Johnny Boone set out to grow and harvest one of the greatest outdoor marijuana crops in modern times. By doing so, he set into motion a series of events that defined him and his associates as the largest homegrown marijuana syndicate in American history, also known as “The Cornbread Mafia.” Author James Higdon—whose relationship with Johnny Boone, currently a federal fugitive, made him the first journalist subpoenaed under the Obama administration—takes readers back to the 1970s and ’80s and the clash between law enforcement and a band of Kentucky farmers with moonshine and pride in their bloodlines. By 1989, the task force assigned to take down men like Johnny Boone had arrested 69 men and one woman from busts on 29 farms in 10 states, seizing 182 tons of pot. Of the 70 individuals arrested, zero talked. How it all went down is a tale of Mafia-style storylines emanating from the Bluegrass state, populated by Vietnam veteran and weed-loving men caught up in Tarantino-level violence and heart-breaking altruism. Accompanied by a soundtrack of Southern rock-and-roll and rhythm-and-blues James Higdon captures it all in action-packed, colorful, and riveting detail. James Higdon has worked for the Courier-Journal in Louisville and the New York Times; contributed to The Prairie Home Companion; and researched the NYPD counter-terrorism division. He lives in Lebanon, Kentucky, and Brooklyn, New York.

10/6/11 1:41 PM


In 1878, two years after his death, the body of A. T. Stewart—one of the wealthiest men in America—was stolen from St. Mark’s Churchyard. The ghoulish crime, the bumbling chase for the culprits, the years-long ransom negotiations, and the demise of the Stewart retail empire fed a media frenzy. When his widow eventually exchanged $20,000 for a burlap bag of bones on a country road in Westchester County, not everyone was convinced that “The Merchant Prince of Manhattan” was really home. But Bag of Bones is more than a grave robbery story. A. T. Stewart, a pioneer of the department store business, rose from the flood of Irish immigration to being mentioned alongside the names of the Astors, Vanderbilts, and Rockefellers. Treated as the black sheep of Gilded Age New York’s affluent society, the Stewarts relied heavily on their friend and confidante, the handsome and conniving Judge Henry Hilton, for entrée into elite social circles. In the end, perhaps they gave Hilton—executer of the Stewart estate, and then manager of all Stewart businesses—too much control. As author J. North Conway leads readers through all the futile tactics used by police to identify the grave robbers, he also unveils the villainy of Judge Henry Hilton, who not only interfered in the case repeatedly, but also dismantled a once-great business empire piece by piece . . . all the while profiting quite nicely. By the end of this fascinating slice of history, one is left to wonder who displayed the greater evil: the grave robbers, or Judge Henry Hilton. J. North Conway is the author of seven non-fiction books, including The Big Policeman and King of Heists (both from Lyons Press); The Cape Cod Canal: Breaking Through The Bared and Bended Arm; and American Literacy: Fifty Books That Define Our Culture and Ourselves. He teaches at the University of Massachusetts in Dartmouth and lives in Assonet, Massachusetts.

From the renowned chronicler of law-and-order in Gilded Age New York City, the sensational grave robbery of A. T. Stewart, “The Merchant Prince of Manhattan,” one of the wealthiest men in American history An excerpt As news of the A.T. Stewart grave robbery spread, letters from parties claiming responsibility started to pour in: An anonymous message from Rutland, Vermont, sent to police headquarters and composed from letters and words cut from newspapers: “In one hour I will be in Canada with A.T. Stewart’s body. A woman has his remains.”

33

Another letter, unsigned, written decidedly in a woman’s handwriting, and sent directly to Mrs. Stewart: “Dear Madam: Your terms are unsatisfactory. Whenever you wish to make the sum $100,000, you will place a personal in the Herald as follows: Agreed to—S.H.H.C. Until then you will not hear again from us.” Another letter complete with a hand-drawn skull and cross bones and the words DEATH written in huge letters was addressed to Mrs. A.T. Stewart, Judge Hamilton and Mr. Libbey: “If this reward is not given in 5 days it shall be lost . . . [Signed] Sam, Pres., WILL, Vice-Pres., MICH, Tres. And ­CONNERS, Sec.” A brief, enigmatic ad appearing in the Herald: “­NICHOLS & HILTON.—CALL OFF BLOODHOUNDS and discipline the Police. P. X. Y-8—$100,000.00” Another unsigned letter sent to Judge Hilton: “Privately offer the Roman Catholic Bishop from $1,000 to $5,000 for the return of A.T. Stewart’s body and I think it will be returned without the thieves being rewarded for their labors.”

Against the odds, the Hudson Valley has cleaned up its act and rediscovered its soul. In this well researched and passionate treatise on the much celebrated but long abused Hudson, Roger Stone describes how protecting New York City’s drinking water supply, making innovative efforts to safeguard views and open space, and reconnecting communities with long abandoned stretches of priceless shoreline, have combined to bring about a new age of spirited restoration in a region that long seemed condemned to cultural and environmental mediocrity. In The Mightier Hudson, disparate historical, cultural, political, and environmental threads are linked to show clearly the multiple forces that have made this turnaround happen. Fascinating in itself, this success story stands as a vivid example of new ideas and values for a nation struggling to counter the devastating economic and environmental effects of misusing the landscape. Many linked stories of the extraordinary revival of the majestic Hudson River estuary and its surrounding areas show remarkable results, even in communities where hope was long in short supply, when it’s done right. Roger D. Stone, environmentalist, journalist, author, and nonprofit executive, is the author of Dreams of Amazonia, The Voyage of the Sanderling, The Nature of Development, and Tropical Forests and the Human Spirit. A resident of Washington, D.C., Stone also publishes the nonprofit newsletter Atlantic CoastWatch.

A remarkable true story of war, peace, and catand-mouse in wartime Rome between a Nazi colonel and an Irish priest

“Remarkably affecting. The old stories are, it seems, still the best ones.” —The Sunday Telegraph

Hide & Seek The Irish Priest in the Vatican Who Defied the Nazi Command Stephen Walker 978-0-7627-8039-6 ■ May 2012 $24.95 US/$27.50 CAN ■ North America ■ Cloth ■ 6 x 9 352 pp ■ 12/CTN ■ Lyons Press ■ HISTORY

Hide & Seek chronicles the intensely personal war between wartime Rome’s Nazi SS Chief Herbert Kappler and Monsignor Hugh O’Flaherty of the Vatican, a fiercely fought rivalry that culminated in attempts by Kappler to kidnap and murder his Irish opponent, who was determined to fight the new rulers. Dubbed “Ireland’s Oscar Schindler,” O’Flaherty masterminded a large-scale operation from within the Vatican, to hide and help Jews and escaped Allied prisoners. Using safe houses and church buildings, he sheltered around 500 Jews in the Holy See, and as many as 4,000 Jews and 4,000 Allied escapees across Rome. After the Resistance killed 32 German soldiers in a bombing, an enraged Hitler instructed Kappler to exact revenge. Soon, 335 would be executed in the Ardeatine Caves outside the city. The massacre became the worst atrocity committed on Italian soil during WWII. After the liberation, the Nazi Colonel was found guilty on all charges relating to the massacre and sentenced to life. Amazingly, O’Flaherty began visiting his former rival in prison, engagng in a long-running conversation that led to Kappler’s conversion—and baptism by the Irish Monsignor. Stephen Walker has worked for BBC Northern Ireland for 20 years as a television and radio reporter, a documentary maker, and a correspondent. In 2005 he was named Northern Ireland Journalist of the Year. His first book, Forgotten Soldiers: The Irishmen Shot at Dawn was shortlisted for the 2007 Irish Non Fiction Book of the Year.

When Rachel’s studio exec boyfriend proposes to her on the Sex and the City movie set, she can’t fathom the dizzying adventure about to begin. Accepting a once-in-a-lifetime venue deal helps their budget, but it puts them on a crash course to get married in just four months—and time isn’t their only challenge. They battle a wacky assortment of vendors, including a hair stylist who fakes a car accident, and a makeup artist channeling Marilyn Manson. Determined to use her nervous energy productively, Rachel enters every contest she can find, winning diamond earrings, a photographer, two wedding gowns, and a honeymoon. Her pop culture obsession lands the entire wedding party on not one but two hit reality television shows. Fearlessly sharing the hard-earned lessons learned, she reveals her secrets to winning contests and attracting television producers. As the clock ticks down, though, there’s just one problem: Her perfectionism and fear of dancing threaten to derail everything. She has to learn to redefine perfection and embrace the mistakes—or risk losing it all. But for now, please take your seats. The wedding is about to begin.

Timeless advice from Austen’s life and novels

To the modern woman, Jane Austen has become synonymous with happily-ever-after. From her books we can glean relationship advice that still works today, but Austen’s life offers us so much more wisdom than just that pertaining to love. She actually never married, and seems to have had a full, happy life. She endured many painful circumstances with grace and humor, the worst being the mysterious illness that took her life at 41. Austen’s heroines are always women of substance—or character. They’re far from perfect, but they’re guided by an inner strength that allows them to recognize their faults and correct their mistakes. And we may be surprised to find that Austen’s novels are not so much about hopeless romanticism as they are about sensible romanticism—a timely corrective in a culture where we’re all obsessed with finding The One. (What would Jane think about The One? She would probably disagree.) This book will cover topics ranging from how to be brave and follow your dreams (persist); love, sex, and finding a good man (build love on the foundation of esteem); recovering from a broken heart (don’t feed the pain); money and fame; friends and family; and much more. Lori Smith is the author of A Walk with Jane Austen. Her writing has appeared in Washington Post Book World, Washingtonian, and Skirt!

Sometimes it’s neither art nor science that serves as the origins of the everyday kitchen and food items that we take for granted today. Sometimes, as Josh Chetwynd shows us in How the Hot Dog Found Its Bun, some of our greatest culinary achievements were simply by-products of “damned good luck.” In How the Hot Dog Found Its Bun, Josh explores the origins of kitchen inventions, products, and foodstuff in seventy-five short essays that dispel popular myths and draw lines between food facts and food fiction. Josh’s charming text combined with simple line illustrations makes this an excellent gift and go-to source book for all food and trivia buffs. Josh Chetwynd is an award-winning journalist who has worked as a staff reporter for such publications as USA Today and U.S. News & World Report, and whose writing has appeared in The Wall Street Journal, The Times (of London), Entertainment Weekly, and BBC Radio on topics as varied as sports, film, politics, legal issues, and travel. He has written three books, including The Secret History of Balls: The Stories Behind The Things We Love To Catch, Whack, Throw, Kick, Bounce and Bat.

For decades now, the poem “My Name Is Old Glory” has been read at military retirements and patriotic ceremonies. Composed by an unsung Marine who served during WW II named Howard Schnauber, it expresses his feelings about the Star-Spangled Banner. In this book, Schnauber’s simple but powerful lines blend with timeless images—from a civil rights march to the Moon landing, from Iwo Jima to September 11, 2001—that capture the courage, strength, and glory embodied in our national treasure. With sidebars about significant flag-raising events, the flag acts of 1777, 1794, 1812, and 1912, flag etiquette, personal reflections about what the flag means to Americans of all ages, and much more, this is sure to be the flag book of the year. Martha LaGuardia-Kotite, a graduate of the Coast Guard Academy, is author of the four-time award-winning book, So Others May Live: Coast Guard Rescue Swimmers (Lyons Press). Trish Marx writes award-winning nonfiction books for young readers. Her books take her to places such as China, Peru, and all across the United States.

. . . she found her prospective subjects reluctant to be interviewed, convinced as they were that the “ordinariness” of their own everyday lives meant they had done nothing worth talking about, that they had nothing to tell. As the stories in this book attest, nothing could have been farther from the truth. Even the most casual reader will soon realize that these are important stories. —from the foreword by Linda Peavy and Ursula Smith

Between 1982 and 1988 oral historian Donna Gray conducted twelve interviews that reveal a rich heritage. These raw accounts bring to life the childhood memories and adulthood experiences of ranch wives who were not afraid to milk a cow or bake in a wooden stove. From raising poultry to raising a family, these women knew the meaning of hard work. Several faced the hardships of family illness, poverty, and early widowhood. Donna Gray moved to a ranch in Montana’s Paradise Valley in the 1970s, where she became interested in the histories of neighboring ranch wives. One stormy August night while he was away, a lightning bolt struck Mark Warren’s tin-roofed farmhouse and burned everything to the ground. Even his metal tools melted. Friends loaned him a tent, but after just a month it began to break down—which Warren vowed not to do. He decided to follow a childhood dream and live in a tipi. And so began a two-year adventure of struggle, contemplation, and achievement that brought him even closer to the land that he called home. More than just the story of one man, Two Winters In a Tipi gives the history and use of the native structure, providing valuable advice, through Warren’s trial and error, about how you can go back to the land—for two days or two years. As Warren beautifully reveals, the wild places of the past still exist in our everyday lives, and living that wilderness is still a possibility. Mark Warren was named Georgia’s Conservation Educator of the Year by the National Wildlife Federation. A national champion in whitewater canoeing and a winner of the World Championship Longbow Tournament, Warren founded and runs the Medicine Bow Wilderness School in the North Georgia mountains, where he lives.

Singles 1971, Oil, 48" x 36", Collection of the artist

LeRoy Neiman—arguably the world’s most recognizable contemporary artist—broke the barrier between fine art and popular art in the 1960s. His prints continue to bring in $10 million a year in sales. But it is the life he’s lived and the people he’s known that make the memoir of this swashbuckling bon vivant with the famous mustache such a marvelous historical canvas. His is the story of a scrappy Depression-era kid who had talent, insatiable curiosity, and a knack for wrangling himself into places he didn’t belong. As a result, he hobnobbed with everyone who’s anyone and created indelible images that helped define a century. Neiman sat ringside with some of the most extraordinary figures of the twentieth century. Instructor and

GPPSprCat12Lay07_001-061.indd 45

confidant to Muhammad Ali throughout his tumultuous career, Neiman also traveled with Sinatra, cavorted with Dali and Warhol, watched afternoon soaps with Dizzy Gillespie, played in Sly Stallone’s Rocky movies, exchanged quips with Nixon, smoked cigars with Castro, and experienced the September 5, 1972, terrorist attacks at the Munich Olympics alongside Peter Jennings, Howard Cosell, and Jim McKay. And then there’s his contribution to the culture-­shifting influence of Playboy. Neiman recalls his half-century relationship with Hugh Hefner—as principle artistic contributor to Playboy since its founding in 1954, setting up studios in London and Paris to cover his Playboy beat, “Man at His Leisure,” and as creator of the Femlin, the iconic Playboy sex doll. With his life’s work, and now in All Told, LeRoy Neiman has captured sports heroes, movie stars, presidents, dishwashers, jet-setters, jockeys, and even high-class hookers—a panoramic record of society like no other.

LeRoy Neiman married fine art to popular art with his brilliantly colored, energetic depictions of sports, celebrities, America at play, life on safari, and famous locations. Born in Saint Paul, Minnesota, he left high school in 1942 to join the U.S. Army, returning four years later to obtain his high school degree. He then studied at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (where, for a time, he taught), the University of Chicago, and the University of Illinois. Early in the 1950s he became a fashion illustrator for the department store of Carson, Pirie, Scott & Co., where he met Playboy founder Hugh Hefner in 1953. He lives in New York City, overlooking Central Park, where he keeps his studio, offices, archives, and penthouse on separate floors.

This book is about unraveling the layers of our lives, delving beneath the surface in order to better understand ourselves, our relationships, and our path. Author Susannah Conway uncovered this process following a ­tragedy—the sudden death of her partner. In sharing her journey of self-discovery first through her blog, then her online courses, and now in these pages, she reveals how grief reshaped her life and led her to reconnect with her creativity, make peace with her past, and learn to appreciate herself. This is a guidebook of sorts, a collection of thoughts and theories, each chapter culminating in a small creative exercise for the reader to reflect upon and apply to her own life. The author’s signature dreamy Polaroid images are also included throughout. Conway reminds readers that they are not alone, that living mindfully is a process, and that unraveling is not about coming undone or losing control, but rather letting go in the best possible way. By untangling the knots that hold you back, unearthing the potential that’s always been there and ditching the labels and should-haves you can let yourself be who you were always meant to be. Susannah Conway is a photographer, writer, and the creator of the Unravelling e-courses. A Polaroid addict, she shares her heart with people around the world via her blog at susannahconway.com.

A riveting memoir of extreme loss and unimaginable gain, this book recounts the story of a child who, although unable to express herself, lives fully aware of her limiting circumstances. Robbed of speech and bodily control, and despite her loving parents’ best efforts to help her, Peyton Goddard suffered neglect and ongoing sexual abuse by many who dismissed her as autistic and severely mentally retarded. No one could have imagined that she possessed a brilliant mind in her uncooperative body until her first opportunity to communicate electronically at age 22 when she typed “I AM INTLGENT,” a breakthrough reminiscent of The Miracle Worker. After two decades, mother and daughter are finally able to communicate, and Peyton goes on to graduate valedictorian from college. Her story challenges assumptions that any child, regardless of competence, can be less of a human being. Peyton’s inspirational life helps readers transcend stereotypes and join her in the radical notion that, as she says, “All people are vastly valuable. Treasure all because great is each.” Peyton Goddard has become the first person using facilitated communication to graduate valedictorian from a U.S. college. Her story has been featured in publications such as the San Diego Union-Tribune and she recently co-authored the foreword of a book for K–12 educators entitled Collaborating With Students in Instruction and Decision Making (Corwin Press, 2010). Dianne Goddard is a former educator who committed herself to seeking a cure for her daughter’s neurological challenges. Carol Cujec is a freelance writer.

A classic underdog story about a local band that almost hits the big time

Everyone knows the price of fame. Hitless Wonder measures the price of obscurity. What happens when you chase a dream into middle age and, in doing so, risk losing the people you love? This book recounts the two-week tour that forces Joe Oestreich—singer, songwriter, and bassist of the band Watershed—to decide if he and his longtime bandmates still have a future together. In the mid-’90s, Watershed’s large Midwest following led to a six-figure deal with Epic Records. But the band never had a hit, and the label dropped them. Seventeen years later, long after their more famous peers have called it quits, Watershed keeps climbing into the Econoline and touring mop bucket bars. But Joe can’t help but wonder: Are he and his bandmates—approaching forty with wives and kids and mortgages—admirable or pathetic? Successes or failures? The tour tests the bonds of Joe’s friendships and the strength of his marriage, as he’s torn between the lure of the road and the call to finally settle down. An accomplished journalist and creative writing instructor, Oestreich tells his story with humor, heart, and unflinching honesty. Readers—from Baby Boomers to Gen X-ers—will be deeply moved by his voice. Joe Oestreich has published essays in Esquire, Sports Illustrated, and elsewhere. His work has been shortlisted for The Best American Nonrequired Reading 2007, The Best American Essays 2008 and 2009, and The Pushcart Prize: Best of the Small Presses 2010. He teaches creative writing at Coastal Carolina University.

Looking back at 80s Hair Metal, one thing is apparent—every band looked and sounded exactly the same. According to legend, this is because of a secret text written by an anonymous record label in 1984 that promised fame and fortune to anyone who followed it word-for-word. As the music scene started to change in the 90s, this text faded into obscurity, never to be read and followed again . . . until now. Here, in all its glory, is a replica of that original text, painstakingly rewritten word-by-word for today’s retro music hopefuls to follow. The text, which covers everything from how to write music to how to dress, includes the following illustrated tips: ■■ ■■

A vivid look at the water crisis facing the West, grounded in history and compelling for residents of the region as well as readers nationwide

From the introduction: Mention water to a Westerner whose great-grandparents homesteaded a patch of land as dry as a legal brief and listen to the stories flow. Water might not seem like a big deal to someone from a state that sloshes with rain, but people whose ancestors settled this water-shy region know that the West was won not by men on horseback with sixshooters hanging from their holsters, not by sheriffs with stars of tin pinned upon their chests and guns blazing in high noon shootouts. It was won by farmers and ranchers with irrigation shovels in hand—and by politicians and lawyers divvying up water rights in a dry land.

In the rush to claim water rights in the West during the fevered days of early emigration and expansion, there was never the consideration that, one day, there might not be enough to go around, and the dam building fever that made an attempt to transform the West in the 19th and 20th centuries created a map of the region that may be unsustainable.Throughout the arid American West, metropolitan areas such as Los Angeles, Phoenix, Las Vegas, and Denver need water. These cities are growing, but water supplies are dwindling. Scientists agree that the West is heating up and drying out, leading to future water shortages that will pose a challenge to existing laws. Dam Nation looks first to the past, to the stories of the California gold rush and the earliest attempts by men to shape the landscape and tame it, takes us to the “Great American Desert” and the settlement of the west under the theory that “rain follows the plow,” and then takes on the ongoing legal and moral battles in the West. Author Stephen Grace, is a novelist, a storyteller, and the author of several non-fiction books on Colorado. He weaves the facts into a compelling narrative that informs, entertains, and tells an important story. Stephen Grace’s employment has ranged from deckhand on Mississippi riverboats to neuropsychological research assistant to whitewater rafting guide. He has led snowboarding adventures for at-risk youth and a volunteer project in China for college students. A resident of Colorado, he divides his free time between Denver’s museums and its mountains.

Reisler has written for Sports Illustrated, the New York Times, New York Daily News, and Newsweek. A frequent guest on sports radio shows, including Bob Costas’s national satellite show and National Public Radio’s Morning Edition, he lives in Irvington, New York.

The son of Irish immigrants who grew up along the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia at the turn of the 20th century, Jack Kelly became a three-time gold medal Olympian, a political maverick, and the millionaire father of a princess. In this classic American tale of grit and perseverance, the clash between old world privilege and new world courage is played out on many fronts—including the watery battlefield of rowing, where Kelly first chose to forge his strength of character. Author Daniel J. Boyne follows the life of Kelly as he parlays his athletic prowess over to France during WWI, and then ventures into the equally treacherous world of Philadelphia politics during the Great Depression. And there’s his daughter, Grace, who seeks an acting career against her father’s will, and his son Jack Kelly Jr., upon whose shoulders is laid the greatest challenge of all—to carry on the Kelly tradition of championship rowing. Kelly is an uplifting true story of a real champion’s profound success in sport and life. Daniel J. Boyne is the author of The Red Rose Crew and Essential Sculling (both from Lyons Press). He has written for The Atlantic Monthly, Harvard Magazine, Double Take, WoodenBoat, and Gray’s Sporting Journal. He lives in Cambridge, and works at Harvard University.

As nearly 600 U.S. athletes prepare to compete in the 2012 Summer Games, here’s the inspiring story of the first fourteen who created the American Olympic movement

The first U.S. Olympic team—a ragtag group of 14 men, mostly Ivy Leaguers—caused a swell of national pride in 1896 while taking home 11 gold medals and paving the way for generations of U.S. Olympians. Author Jim Reisler chronicles the growing American sports scene in the 19th Century, the men of influence who established a modern Olympics, and how a squad of moderately talented Americans, funded independently, competing without the backing of the Amateur Athletic Union or their universities, went off to Athens, anyway. By triumphing in their events, they won not only gold— but also the hearts and minds of the world.

Stories of the hard-luck, hardliving men and women who stampeded west in search of Gold

Sourdoughs, Claim Jumpers & Dry Gulchers Fifty of the Grittiest Moments in the History of Frontier Prospecting Matthew P. Mayo

When Sam struck a trail after a criminal he followed it until he ran the quarry down, and more than once when a flying desperado heard that Captain Sam was on his trail he took the back track and surrendered. —New York Times, May 15, 1887

Sam Sixkiller was a typical law-enforcement official, minding the peace and gunslinging in the still-wild West. What set Sam Sixkiller apart was his Cherokee heritage. Sixkiller took it upon himself to protect the traditional way of life of the Cherokee, but his temper, actions, and convictions earned him more than a few enemies, and in 1886 he was assassinated in an ambush. This new biography takes a sweeping, cinematic look at the short, tragic life of of Sam Sixkiller and his days policing the streets of the Wild West. Howard Kazanjian has been producing feature films and television programs for more than twenty-five years. Chris Enss has written for television, short subject films, live performances, and for the movies, and is the author of more than twenty books.

Mayo’s Grittiest Moments books read like Loren D. Estleman and Jim Thompson got together to re-write a Stephen Ambrose history book. —Jeremy L.C. Jones, Booklifenow.com

Sourdoughs, Claim Jumpers & Dry Gulchers offers 50 tales of hard-bitten sourdoughs, petty bandits, outright outlaws, guilt-free gunmen, and murderous money-grubbers as they scrabbled to gain the lands, foodstuffs, and fortunes of wideeyed greenhorns, gullible and trusting tenderfoots, and slowon-the-draw gold panners. Matthew P. Mayo is the author of several fiction and nonfiction books, including Cowboys, Mountain Men, and Grizzly Bears (TwoDot, January 2010) and the Western novels Winters’ War, Wrong Town, and Hot Lead, Cold Heart.

I want to address a most unfortunate myth that took hold in some quarters after Elizabeth died—that she was “crazy.” The myth (begun by the speculation of John P. Reynolds, who wrote on her death that Elizabeth succeeded as a spy because she acted “crazy,” making people think her harmless) has both benign and malicious motivations among those taking up this falsehood. One view grows from the feeling that she must have been crazy to expend her fortune and risk her life and reputation on anti-slavery and Unionist causes. No sane Southern lady would defy social custom in this way. These folks simply cannot grasp that one would rationally choose such a path. The other view is a deliberate attempt to undermine and trivialize Elizabeth in order to exonerate the incompetence of a Confederacy incapable of unmasking a serious threat—from a woman, no less. To treat her as a powerful person with extraordinary organizational skills, a rational force to be reckoned with, is to admit that she was smarter than the men she repeatedly outwitted. —From the Author’s Note

As the Civil War ground on, an underground Unionist movement flourished in the heart of the Confederacy, led by an unlikely leader. Elizabeth Van Lew, a wealthy and well-connected member of Richmond’s elite, risked everything to help save the Union, skillfully directing this clandestine group and becoming General Ulysses S. Grant’s spy in Richmond. Surrounded by a cadre of “slaves” secretly freed and working with her at the risk of their lives— and hers—Lizzie becomes a pivotal character in the narrative that reveals the complexity and horror of war and the possibility of ultimate redemption. Based on an incredible true story, Miss Lizzie’s War revolves around a number of elements: the intrigue involved in Elizabeth’s double life, her scheme to plant a former slave as her spy in the Jefferson Davis home, her secret romance with a Union prisoner, the dangerous work and conspiracies entailed in running a spy network for the Federal Government in the Confederate capital, terrifying flights to freedom engineered by Elizabeth for escaped prisoners and slaves, and ongoing Confederate surveillance, investigations and arrests of Unionists. Rosemary Agonito’s first novel, Buffalo Calf Road Woman: The Story of a Warrior of the Little Bighorn, also based on a true story, won the prestigious 2006 Western Heritage Award for the Outstanding Western Novel. She has also authored five non-fiction books, many articles, and lectured widely on women’s history and issues.

Mule My Dangerous Life as a Drug Smuggler Turned DEA Informant Chris Heifner with Adam Slutsky 978-0-7627-8028-0 ■ July 2012 $18.95 US/$20.95 CAN ■ US, Canada, and open market Paper ■ 6 x 9 ■ 272 pp ■ 24/CTN ■ Lyons Press TRUE CRIME

Meet Chris Heifner, overachieving drug runner for a Mexican marijuana cartel. But he wasn’t always. This onetime econ student from Texas—broke, deep in debt, facing eviction, and with a growing family to support— yielded to the temptation that he had resisted countless times before and went to work for his best friend from college, Jake Andes. But it wasn’t exactly a Career Day kind of job. Andes was a big-time dealer, captaining a $25-million-a-year empire. Heifner became a mule, running multi-hundred-pound loads from Juarez around the country. After digging himself out of his financial hole, Heifner contemplated going clean. But the money and the lifestyle had hooked him, so he kept moving loads. He was so good that Andes was grooming him to become his second-in-command. And then Heifner got busted with $300,000 worth of dope in a rental car, and his world came crashing down. After bailing out of jail, Heifner went home for a much-needed shower. He emerged to find Andes and a hit man hired to kill him and his family should he decide to go to the authorities. Heifner realized that he had only one option: to flip and become an informant for the DEA. And that’s when life got really dangerous. Chris Heifner earned his MBA in economics from the University of Texas at El Paso. Feature articles about him have appeared in Bluff, Mob Candy, and the New York Times, among other publications. Now a motivational speaker, he lives in El Paso, Texas.

Domingo Martinez lays bare his interior and exterior worlds as he struggles to make sense of the violent and the ugly, along with the beautiful and the loving. Partly a reflection on the culture of machismo and partly an exploration of the author’s boyhood spent in his sister’s hand-me-down clothes, this book delves into the enduring and complex bond between Martinez and his deeply flawed but fiercely protective older brother. It features a cast of memorable characters, including his gun-hoarding, former farmhand Gramma and “The Mimi’s,” two of his older sisters who for a short, glorious time, managed to transform themselves from poor Latina adolescents into upper-class white girls. Martinez delves into the complicated relationships between extended family and the inner conflicts that result when the desire to Americanize clashes with the inherent need to defend one’s manhood in an aggressive, archaic patriarchal farming culture. He provides a real glimpse into a society where children are traded like commerce, physical altercations routinely solve problems, and people depend on the family witch doctor for advice. Charming, painful, and enlightening, it examines the traumas and pleasures of growing up in South Texas and the often terrible consequences when two very different cultures collide on the banks of a dying river. Domingo Martinez lives in Seattle, Washington. His work has appeared in Epiphany, and he has worked as a journalist and designer in Texas and at virtually every periodical in Seattle, including The Stranger, Seattle Weekly, the Seattle Times, and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.

Clash of Eagles America’s Forgotten Expedition to Ottoman Palestine Carol Lea Clark 978-0-7627-7842-3 ■ July 2012 $16.95 US/$18.95 CAN ■ World ■ Paper ■ 51/2 x 8 ■ 304 pp 24/CTN ■ 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 navigated the treacherous, uncharted rapids of the Jordan and braved near starvation before reaching Jerusalem. But why? Following a long tradition of quasi-scientific expeditions, it attempted 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 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.

The first popular biography of Peggy Shippen— Benedict Arnold’s wife, beautiful society girl, and traitor to the American Revolution

Histories of the Revolutionary War honor several heroines. There’s Betsy Ross, Abigail Adams, and Molly Pitcher. But there is no popular biography—yet—that focuses on one of the most remarkable women of the war, a beautiful society girl named Peggy Shippen, who befriended a handsome British spy and then married a crippled American revolutionary general twice her age. At a crucial juncture in the Revolutionary War, Peggy brought the two enemy warriors together in a treasonous plot that came perilously close to turning George Washington into a prisoner of war and possibly changing the outcome of the conflict. Peggy Shippen was Mrs. Benedict Arnold. Peggy was to the American Revolution what the fictional Scarlett O’Hara was to the Civil War: a woman whose survival skills trumped all other values. Had she been a man, she might have been arrested, tried, and executed. And she might have become famous. But because of eighteenth-century views of women and her own guileful deflection of blame, Peggy’s role was minimized and she was allowed to recede into the background— with a generous British pension in hand. It took a century and a half for historians to begin to appreciate her true treacherous role during our nation’s birth. Mark Jacob, deputy metro editor at the Chicago Tribune, was part of the team that won the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for explanatory journalism. Stephen H. Case is managing director and general counsel of Emerald Development Managers LP. He is a member of the board of the American Revolution Center.

A generational story of fathers and sons and the lives of New England shellfishermen

“If we mean to change our ways, how will we do it? How will we make our food and our system of food production healthy, sustainable, and secure? How will we make them, in a word, sane? Who will do this work?” Ray Huling knows the hard realities of shell fishing. His father and grandfathers were shellfishermen on Rhode Island’s Narragansett Bay, laborers in an age-old trade. As a third generation quahauger, the industry is his life, and the drive to keep it sustainable is what makes up his family history. In Harvesting the Bay, Huling answers these pressing questions and delivers a moving portrait of the men and women who work the waters of the Atlantic coast in the harsh environment of the shellfishing industry. Huling argues that any successful sustainable food enterprise will likely resemble shellfishing in Rhode Island, an industry that has existed sustainably for over 150 years, with its complex system of governance, its fierce and obsessive workforce, and its conflicts within communities and between generations. This thought-provoking book sets the complexities of sustainable food production against a heartwarming story of one family’s enduring years of work on the seas. Ray Huling is a third-generation quahauger. Drawing on his own history with shellfishing, he has written extensively about marine affairs for the town of East Greenwich, Rhode Island. Huling has a graduate degree from New York University’s School of Journalism. In addition, he was a Fellow in the Reynolds Program in Social Entrepreneurship. He is a contributor to online magazines and has written about new media and entertainment.

Seven true tales of murder set in New England from the colonial period to today, from a true crime master and star of Investigation Discovery’s new show, Dark Minds A chilling scene unfolds on the Woodstock, Connecticut, estate of the Sesame Street puppeteer who played Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch: Near the end of the access road was a picnic area with a large pagoda-like structure topped by an A-framed roof. Two paddle boats were stored under the ceiling of the open-air building. The pagoda had that sacred, spiritual look one would expect of a place to relax and meditate, a haven separated from the main living space where one could disconnect from the world.

67

What upset the serenity of the scene was the trail of blood. It led from the roadway directly to the pagoda—and yet stopped in the center of the ground under the ceiling. The paddle boats, investigators noticed, had blood spatter and smudge marks on them. But what did it mean that the trail of blood just stopped? As they continued to search, troopers looked above them and spied a set of pull-down stairs. There was a storage area or attic within the pagoda’s A-frame. The blood trail had stopped directly beneath the pull-down stairs.

—New York Journal of Books

Living in Hamburg, Germany, Gretel Wachtel witnessed the disappearance of her best friend during Kristallnacht in 1938. An unguarded anti-Nazi comment resulted in Gretel being forced to work in an ammunition factory, but she married a resistance fighter, hid her Jewish doctor in her home, passed secrets to the resistance, and in 1945 was arrested and taken to an internment camp. Gretel Wachtel was an ordinary person thrust into extraordinary circumstances, and her wartime experiences are nothing short of astonishing. Gretel Wachtel was born in Germany in 1915 and was twenty-four years old when the Second World War began. She moved to England in 1945, where she remained until her death in 2005.

“Well-written and succinct. . . . [Gretel Wachtel’s] defiance of the Gestapo and her willingness to serve time in a concentration camp gives Ms. Wachtel special status, similar to others like Oskar Schindler.”

At turns hilarious and heartbreaking, thoughtful and irreverent, Crazy is the incredibly honest and insightful story of how one mental health professional deals with his own personal problems and those of the people he treats. Part exposé, part memoir, it reveals what therapists really think about their profession, their colleagues, their patients, and their own lives. Rob Dobrenski, PhD, is a licensed psychologist whose work has been published in The Best of Creative Nonfiction, Vol. 2. His training and practice have afforded him the opportunity to work with virtually every psychological condition. He lives and works in New York City. Visit him at ShrinkTalk.net.

A story of love more than loss, memory more than sorrow, life more than death

“For some inexplicable reason—at once miraculous and diabolical—the heart keeps beating even when it’s irreparably broken.” —Excerpt from the book

“Emotionally raw from start to finish, the story . . . also celebrates a rare and profound love that transcended death. A brutally candid memoir of the ‘all-consuming and profoundly uncomplicated’ power of grief.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Reader be warned: This is a sad book. But there is a need for sad books. They remind us of real lives, true love, and heartache, but most important, that at the end of the day, grieving people can still smile. Yes, this is yet another book about losing a husband too soon and too young, but AfterImage clearly is not your mother’s widowhood.” —NY Journal of Books

“Carla Malden traces the awful journey of her young husband’s illness and death with such precision and care, expressing the emotion between the exhilaration of hope and the darkness of reality so powerfully, that her eloquence turns grief into poetry and enlightenment.”

—Blythe Danner, actress

Carla Malden’s heartbreaking and beautifully written memoir, detailing her husband’s battle with cancer and his untimely death, is as much a story of marriage as one of loss and survival. Malden was starved for a book she could relate to: an in-the-trenches account, rather than frustrating platitudes that leave readers feeling even more alone. This is that book. Carla Malden has been a screenwriter and published author for over twenty years. With her father, Academy Award–winning actor Karl Malden, she coauthored his critically acclaimed memoir, When Do I Start?

What if you could look for the present moment in a field guide, the way you might look up the name of a tree out your window? For as long as you can remember, the tree has just been a tree, but in looking it up, it becomes something more: a Sassafras maybe, or a Tulip Maple, and suddenly you can feel the way your attention toward it shifts. You recognize the way its pollen gathers fine and yellow in the weft of your bedroom screen in May, or the way its shade freckles the dying grass at the end of summer. In the act of naming it, in discovering its traits and marks, the tree becomes something more to you. What if you could do this for the moments that fill your life? That is what this book is about. The illustrated essays and prose explore the fabric of the present tense. With this book, talented blogger and artist Christina Rosalie combines narrative with original illustrations and field notes that spark inspiration. Within these pages she leads readers to rediscover how the small, mundane aspects of daily life can—through a shift in focus—become a springboard for the profound.

An Invitation Survival and thriving: these are the poles between which the moments of our lives are strung. The balance is tenuous and the outcome for each of us is different. Yet we mostly start with the same raw stuff: skin, a mother, food, shelter, breath, and each moment as it unfolds, one after the next, right now. From these moments all the intricacies of our lives are made. And no matter who you are, your day—like mine—is occupied with the small repetitive tasks of living, and these are the moments that shape us, even as we’re dreaming of other things.

In a Massachusetts courtroom last year, a 24-year-old man pled guilty to falsifying his application to Harvard, thereby bilking the world’s most prestigious university out of more than $45,000 in prizes and scholarships and cheating an honest applicant out of an Ivy League diploma. Using forged SAT scores, transcripts, and letters of recommendation, Wheeler outsmarted Harvard’s admissions office. Once accepted to Harvard, Wheeler was not content to settle unnoticed into life as an Ivy League undergrad. He wanted much more. He garnered Harvard’s top honor for undergraduate writing using a plagiarized essay. He fabricated a research proposal that earned him an $8,000 grant to study abroad. He kept lying, cheating, and succeeding—until he shot too far. During his senior year at Harvard, Wheeler applied for nomination to the illustrious Rhodes and Fulbright scholarships, a gamble that finally exposed his extensive tangle of lies. Harvard officials and later the police unraveled Wheeler’s violations at Harvard and the falsifications on his application for admission. Alerted that he was under suspicion, Wheeler fled Harvard but did not stop scamming universities. He successfully filed more fraudulent applications

at top-tier schools across the country—until some vigilant admissions officers, Massachusetts police, and even his own parents forced him off his computer and into court. As reporters for The Harvard Crimson, Julie Zauzmer and Xi Yu covered the case from the moment the news of Wheeler’s indictment broke. Their reports included up-tothe-minute coverage of the case and the court transcripts, a psychological analysis of Wheeler, a look at the implication of the crime on college admissions, and a detailed annotation of Wheeler’s phony resumé. In the course of their reporting, they interviewed dozens of friends, roommates, teachers, and advisors who knew Wheeler at many phases of his suspect academic career. Their fascinating account reveals how one serial scammer took on the fast-paced and competitive world of the Ivy League—and almost won.

The untold story of how two behavioral scientists helped Ronald Reagan win the California governorship, turning the Gipper into the Great Communicator

76

The Making of the Great Communicator Ronald Reagan’s Transformation from Actor to Governor Kenneth Holden with Ken Gross 978-0-7627-7849-2 ■ September 2012 $24.95 US/$27.50 CAN ■ World ■ Cloth ■ 6 x 9 256 pp ■ 12/CTN ■ Lyons Press ■ HISTORY

One week after Ronald Reagan announced his candidacy for governor of California, the San Francisco Chronicle gibed: “It was simply a flagrant example of miscasting.” Reagan was tanking, and his businessmen backers panicked. Then a think-tank friend suggested the expertise of two UCLA social pyschologists. Kenneth Holden and Stanley Plog agreed to take the job only if they could have three full days alone with Reagan. Those three days remade the bumbling neophyte into an articulate, confident politician whose devastating sound bites shredded the opposition. Holden or Plog remained by Reagan’s side for the rest of the campaign, feeding him information about California’s problems, teaching him to handle the press, writing his position papers, and helping develop the programs he offered. Not everyone who voted for Reagan supported his positions, but voters preferred his honesty and forthrightness to the waffling of other politicians. Reagan won by a landslide. Holden and Plog had shaped an actor into a governor, but they were also turning a governor into a president. Here is the untold story of how they did it. Kenneth Holden earned his PhD in clinical psychology from Ohio State University. At UCLA, he met Stanley Plog, and they founded BASICO, a market research and consulting firm. Holden later became a director with the Hawaii Mental Health Division. He lives in Chico, California, where he remains active in various volunteer organizations.

A tantalizing portrait of contemporary China through food

To the People, Food Is Heaven Stories of Food and Life in a Changing China Audra Ang 978-0-7627-7392-3 ■ September 2012 $22.95 US/$24.95 CAN ■ North America ■ Cloth 51/2 x 81/2 ■ 288 pp ■ 12/CTN ■ Lyons Press CURRENT EVENTS

In China, the world’s next superpower, life is comfortable for the fortunate few. For others, it’s a hand-to-mouth struggle for a full stomach, a place to live, wages for work done, and freedom to speak openly. In a place where few things are more important than food, “Have you eaten yet?” is another way of saying hello. After traversing the country and meeting its people, Ang shares her delicious experiences with us. She tells of a clandestine cup of salty yak butter tea with a Tibetan monk during a military crackdown and explains how a fluffy spring onion omelet encapsulates China’s drive for rural development. You’ll have lunch with some of the country’s most enduring activists, savor meals with earthquake survivors, and get to know a house cleaner who makes the best fried chicken in all of Beijing. Ang bites into the gaping divide between rich and poor, urban and rural reform, intolerance for dissent, and the growing dissatisfaction with those in power. By serving these topics to us one at a time, To the People, Food Is Heaven provides a fresh perspective beyond the country’s anonymous identity as an economic powerhouse. Like Peter Hessler with Anthony Bourdain along for the ride, Ang plates a terrific, wideranging feast that is the new China. Have you eaten yet? Audra Ang, a former Beijing correspondent for The Associated Press, has been a visiting scholar at UC Berkeley’s Center for Chinese Studies and a Nieman fellow at Harvard University. She divides her time between Asia and the U.S. and regularly eats unseemly amounts of food at one sitting.

John Bramblitt makes his living as a visual artist. His works have been sold in over twenty different countries, and he’s received three Presidential Service Awards for the art workshops he teaches. He’s painted portraits of skateboarder Tony Hawk and blues legend Pops Carter. He’s given talks about his art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and there has even been a documentary made about him. And . . . he’s blind. When Bramblitt was declared legally blind ten years ago due to complications with epilepsy, his hopes of becoming a creative writing teacher were shattered and he sunk into a deep depression. But then he discovered painting. He learned to distinguish between different colored paints by feeling their textures with his fingers. He taught himself how to paint using raised lines to help him find his way around the canvas, and through haptic visualization, which enables him to “see” his subjects through touch. He now paints lifelike portraits of people he’s never seen—including his wife and son. Shouting in the Dark is the story of Bramblitt’s life, his journey navigating through this new territory of blindness, and how he ultimately rekindles his joy, passion, and relationships through art. John Bramblitt has appeared on CBS Evening News with Katie Couric, ABC, and BBC Radio, and he’s been featured in the New York Times and Psychology Today. He lives in Denton, Texas.

Not long ago, Philadelphia’s culinary identity could be described in one word: Cheesesteak. But today you’re as likely to hear food lovers discussing Iron Chef Jose Garces, restaurant mogul Stephen Starr, Marc “Is this the Best Italian Restaurant in America?” Vetri, and the gelato genius of Capogiro. You’ll find them crowding into Honey’s Sit ’n’ Eat for a Jewish-Southern brunch, lining up for bespoke cocktails at Franklin Mortgage & Investment Co., and planning a year in advance for dinner at Talula’s Table. And these Philly food devotees are always hungry for more. One thing hasn’t changed since the city’s cheesesteak days, when friendly rivalries between vendors earned the humble sandwich its place atop Philly foodie lore. The personalities—the talented, memorable chefs in the city’s kitchens—are the driving force behind the city’s current restaurant revolution. Philadelphia Chef’s Table captures this vibrant moment in Philadelphia’s dining scene through recipes from and conversations with more than fifty of the city’s most influential and well-known chefs. April White is an award-winning food writer and the author of several books, including Latin Evolution, the debut cookbook of Iron Chef Jose Garces; and Philadelphia magazine’s Ultimate Restaurant Guide. White is the former food editor of Philadelphia magazine, and her writing has appeared in Food & Wine and Every Day with Rachael Ray.

Dr. Lisa Masterson traces a journey that begins with an unconventional childhood shaped by her larger-than-life mother, who broke away from an abusive husband in Louisiana to find new opportunities for the two of them in the West. With charm, determination, and a budget that often involves moving every few months to skip out on the rent, the two lead a hidden existence that allows Lisa to attend exclusive private schools and feed a brilliant mind. Their life together is as heartbreakingly flimsy as the dollhouse she makes for a school project, using the only materials she has: notebook paper and tape. But the love and grit and resilience of those early days ground Lisa for harrowing years of medical training and give her the fierce determination, after she loses her mother to cancer, to found clinics for pregnant women and babies in Africa and India. This unexpected story from the accomplished doctor and cohost of the Emmy Award–winning medical talk show The Doctors will captivate, surprise, and inspire readers and her many daytime TV fans. Dr. Lisa M. Masterson is a specialist in obstetrics, gynecology, infertility, adolescent gynecology, and family planning. She practices in Los Angeles at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, St. John’s, and UCLA/Santa Monica. She is also the founder of Maternal Fetal Care International (MFCI). Ten million U.S. viewers each week and a growing international audience know the dynamic mix of expertise, humor, and compassion that she brings to the syndicated daytime TV talk show The Doctors.

Tarot cards have been used to foretell the future for centuries. Once the domain of the esoteric and mystical, tarot today has many practical applications in the modern world. Jane Stern, a fourth generation tarot reader, has given the art of the tarot a very modern spin. Using the twenty-two major arcana cards (the “heart of the tarot”) as chapters, she has gleaned all she has learned over the years and presents Confessions of a Tarot Reader as a witty, readable, and useful self-help book. In her own words, the author likes to think of herself as a “psychic Dear Abby,” and by drawing on the wisdom of the tarot deck, to give practical advice in every life situation and lift the veil between this world and the unseen beyond. Jane Stern is author of the best-selling memoir Ambulance Girl as well as many food and popular culture books coauthored with Michael Stern. Together they run the very popular website ROADFOOD, have won three James Beard awards, and been inducted into the Who’s Who of American food. Visit her at janemastertarot.com.

An inspirational story of life and death on the Intercoastal Waterway

“Travel often inspires deep reflection on themes like resilience, familiarity, and resolve. All three of those threads are artfully explored in Gib’s Odyssey: A Tale of Faith and Hope on the Intracoastal Waterway.” —Foreword Magazine

“Ordinary men sometimes do extraordinary things . . . we all have to die. Some of us go out with a whimper, others with a roar. Gib Peters chose the roar.” —Jacksonville News

Gib’s Odyssey is the true story of an extraordinary man, Gib Peters, and his solo journey along the Intracoastal Waterway from Key West to New York and back while suffering the ravages of Lou Gehrig’s disease. During his six-month voyage aboard his boat, Ka-Ching, Gib encounters numerous obstacles. He meets an incompetent sailor who wraps his tow rope around Ka-Ching’s propellers and accidentally stabs himself as he tries to cut it loose. Navy and Coast Guard Zodiacs rush to stop Gib from entering a naval bombardment zone. He searches for his two kittens, brought along as companions on his trip, when they go AWOL. All the while he is forced to cope with increasing levels of paralysis, steering the boat home with his feet and unable to speak. Authored by the neurologist who treated him, this remarkable book is told in Gib’s own voice through a series of e-mails to family and friends and articles he wrote for the Key West Citizen. Part travelogue, part soulsearching meditation, it is an uplifting and sometimes hilarious story of one man’s conquest of death and his profound insights into life. Walter G. Bradley, DM, FRCP, is the emeritus chairman of the Department of Neurology at the Miller School of Medicine, University of Miami. He is the author, most recently, of Treating the Brain: What the Best Doctors Know.

As climate change encroaches, animals and plants around the globe are having their habitats pulled out from under them. At the same time, human development has made islands out of even our largest nature reserves, stranding the biodiversity that lives within them. Spine of the Continent introduces readers to the conservation effort to create linked protected areas extending from the Yukon to Mexico. This movement is the brainchild of Michael Soulé, the founder of conservation biology and the peer of E. O. Wilson and Paul Ehrlich, who endorse his effort as necessary to saving nature on our continent. With blue-ribbon scientific foundations, the Spine is a grassroots, cooperative effort among conservation activists—NGOs large and small—and regular citizens. Spine of the Continent is not only about making physical connections so that nature will persist; but also about making connections between people and the land we call home. In this important book, Mary Ellen Hannibal travels the length of the Spine, sharing stories and anecdotes about the passionate, idiosyncratic people she meets along the way—and the critters they love. Mary Ellen Hannibal’s most recent book is Evidence of Evolution. She has written for many publications, including The San Francisco Chronicle, Esquire, and Elle magazines, and extensively for environmental nonprofits. She is a 2011 Alicia Patterson Foundation Fellow and lives in the California Bay Area.

But she’s just as likely to be a checker at the local Winn Dixie, a full-time mother, a banker, an attorney, or an astronaut.” —Dale Evans, Queen of the Cowgirls

You Might Be a Cowgirl If . . . A Guide to Life on the Range Jill Charlotte Stanford photographs by Robin L. Corey 978-0-7627-7809-6 ■ September 2012 $12.95 US/$14.50 CAN ■ World ■ Paper ■ 81/2 x 8 128 pp ■ 24/CTN ■ TwoDot ■ HUMOR

Jill Charlotte Stanford, author of the Cowgirl’s Cookbook and Wild Women and Tricky Ladies, is a cowgirl. And she wants to be Dale Evans—a smile on her face, a song in her heart, and not a hair out of place as she races around the arena. Her new book, You Might Be a Cowgirl If . . . is a lively celebration of what it means to be a cowgirl and how to achieve the cowgirl lifestyle whether you’re at home on the range or a city girl. It’s not all sequins and silver buckles—but following the way of Dale Evans and Rodeo Queens can help you achieve your own cowgirl style and release your inner cowgirl. With affectionate humor, Stanford identifies those traits that might already identify you as a cowgirl (you ask for a pony for Christmas every year and you’re WAAAY older than twelve). She profiles great cowgirls of the past and present, offers the rules that Rodeo Queens live by, and gives you tips on Riding Herd (managing your money and your relationships), Minding Your Fences, Establishing Your Brand, and Knowing When to Gallop to the Rescue—life lessons that might be called the Cowgirl Way. Jill Charlotte Stanford’s lifelong ambition has been to be a cowgirl—but not just any cowgirl. She aspires to be Dale Evans, not a hair out of place, makeup perfect, and song in her heart. And she aspires to be Fanny Sperry Steele, bronc riding champ of the early 20th century. She lives and writes in Sisters, Oregon.

“Compelling and appealing. . . . [an] engaging recounting of the era as personified by some of its most colorful characters.” —Sam Roberts, New York Times

“The 1920s’ distinctive cultural creation, the celebrity, is the real star of this gallery of famous New Yorkers. . . . Take Fanny Brice, then a popular comedienne.

Also including figures from journalism, prostitution, politics, music, and dance, Wallace’s tome recalls the fizz and biz of 1920s publicity.”

Mitt Romney An Inside Look at the Man and His Politics R. B. Scott 978-0-7627-7927-7 ■ November 2011 $16.95 US/$18.95 CAN ■ World ■ Paper 51/2 x 8 ■ 264 pp ■ 24/CTN ■ Lyons Press BIOGRAPHY & AUTOBIOGRAPHY

The 2012 race for the White House is racing along at full tilt. Mitt Romney is widely assumed to be the front-runner for the Republican nominee. Question is, can he hold the lead? Ron Scott provides the first independent (unauthorized) biographical profile of the possible Republican nominee. Mitt Romney takes a frank and revealing look at what makes Mitt the man tick, more human than he often appears to be on the stump: his character, convictions, his words and actions, yes his flips and his flops too, and, his triumphs and setbacks. It will also attempt to answer the question everyone is asking: Can a faithful Mormon really win his party’s nomination and then upset the popular if now struggling, incumbent President, Barack Obama? Drawing on extensive research amassed over more than two decades, including interviews with people who know him best—allies and adversaries alike—this book will paint a savvy, textured, and revealing portrait of the candidate, his history, family, religion, political beliefs, and strategy. It will put Mitt in context like no other book to date. Ronald B. Scott wrote for People, Time, Life, Sports Illustrated and Money. His work has appeared in USA Today, Seattle Post-Intelligencer, The Boston Globe, Salt Lake Tribune and Philadelphia Inquirer. Scott was the first to raise the “flip flopping” issue in 2005 when Romney changed positions on abortion and gay rights.

A delightful history from heel to thigh about what makes the stocking so classic, so provocative, and so irresistible

“Charming, witty, and saucy . . . for anyone with an interest in fashion.” —Cambridge Style Magazine

Introduction by Victor Arwas

92

When a woman takes all her clothes off, she can be depicted as a pure, Classical nude. If, however, she keeps her stockings on, she suddenly becomes naked, an erotic creation capable of arousing the viewer’s libido. This curious paradox has been observed and used by artists since the Middle Ages. Stockings range from extremely elaborate confections: multicoloured, embroidered, applied with sequins or precious stones, painted, striped or otherwise made into objects to be coveted, enabling the wearer to be desired. They range from the shapeless utilitarian woollen stocking suddenly transformed by being black or allowed to droop erotically down the leg, to the breathtaking sheen of silk stockings drawn tight over the leg, held in place by an elaborate garter or garter-belt. Silk was eventually replaced by nylon or rayon, enlivened in certain decades by a central seam in the back of the leg (giving rise to the arousing gesture of straightening the seam), a tiny monogram or the variety of colours in the sheer quality of the transparent material, listed in deniers.

The Stocking Book Victor Arwas 978-0-7627-7994-9 ■ November 2011 $24.95 US/$27.50 CAN ■ North America ■ Cloth 4.72 x 8.46 ■ 192 pp ■ 24/CTN ■ full-color throughout skirt! ■ DESIGN/FASHION

This book explores the astonishing variety of stockings from the eighteenth century to the present, the way great painters depicted them, the way illustrators and cartoonists made use of them, the way advertisements presented them, and the way they have developed, from practical woollen undergarments to luxurious silk creations, from the miraculous invention of nylon to the simple stocking hung from the mantelpiece waiting for Father Christmas.

11

A sumptuous feast for the eyes, and rich in historic detail, The Stocking Book is a lively and lovely paean to the world’s most alluring garment. Often overlooked, the stocking has always been as outrageous as it is practical, from the ancient world all the way up to modern era. Arwas navigates the creation of the stocking, from the first knitters to mass manufacturing and the invention of nylon, and explores its many uses, from a practical garment worn by both sexes to the extravagant, luxury items they have become today. Sifting through decades of art, Arwas delves into the explosive cultural sensation of the stocking, from the role they have played on the runway to the phenomenon of the Christmas stocking. Complete with full-color illustrations and photos, as well as cultural commentary, The Stocking Book is bursting at the seams with its delightful and irreverent history. Victor Arwas was the founder of the Editions Graphiques art gallery and the curator for over thirty art exhibitions all over the world. He remains an expert voice in Art Nouveau and Art Deco, and has published more than 30 works on art and its artists.

The title behind one of this fall’s most talked about TV comedies, ABC’s Suburgatory, which airs directly before the wildly popular Modern Family

93

Suburgatory Twisted Tales from Darkest Suburbia Linda Erin Keenan 978-0-7627-8019-8 ■ November 2011 $21.95 US/$23.95 CAN ■ World ■ Cloth ■ 51/2 x 81/2 240 pp ■ 12/CTN ■ skirt! ■ HUMOR

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 by Warner Brothers in 2010, and you can see their imagining of Suburgatory on the ABC show of the same title this fall. 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 includes “news stories” (Mom Plans School Auction During Dreary Sex) that go after the tiger moms, breastfeeding nazis, frustrated swingers, crypto-racists, barely-there dads, and power-mad principals. 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.

This is an enthralling personal account of the secret Nazi project, Operation Bernhard, devised to destabilize the British and, later, American economies by creating and circulating millions of counterfeit pounds and dollars. A team of typographers and printers was hand selected from prisoners on their way to the gas chambers then transferred to the strictly isolated Block 19 in Sachsenhausen concentration camp. There they were presented with the enormous task of producing almost perfect counterfeits to the value of hundreds of millions of British pounds sterling. These notes were to be dropped from bombers over London, with the aim of causing financial chaos. Some of the currency was even used to fund operations in Germany’s secret war. Moritz Nachtstern (1902–1969), was a Norwegian-Jewish typographer deported from Oslo in 1942. The Counterfeiter is his story, as told to his wife and written down by her, then edited by journalist Ragnar Arntzen. It was originally published in Norwegian in 1949.

The success of D-Day was made possible by the efforts of people who were not even present on the Normandy Beaches. General Patton spent D-Day on British shores commanding a phantom army. Spanish double-agent GARBO sent messages relaying supposed intelligence from his fictitious spy network, fooling the Nazis right up until the end of the war. Operation Fortitude tells the thrilling tale of an ingenious deception that changed the course of the Second World War. The story is one of intrigue, drama, and good fortune, practically a Hollywood script. It is the tale of double agents, fake radio transmissions, and dummy invasion craft. Even as the Normandy landings were happening, Hitler remained convinced they were a diversionary tactic to force him to move his troops. So, thanks to Fortitude, D-Day was a triumph; without it the war might well have had a very different outcome. Joshua Levine is a playwright, writer for television, producer, and the author of numerous books including, On A Wing and A Prayer, the story of the pioneering aviation heroes of World War I; Beauty & Atrocity, a history of the Irish Troubles (which was short-listed for the Writers’ Guild 2010 Non-Fiction Book of the Year); as well as three books in the Forgotten Voices series.

War Correspondent not only brings together details of the most famous dispatches from the front and iconic examples of photojournalism that have passed into our collective consciousness, it is also about the war correspondents themselves—their escapades and ruses to outwit the censor; their ability to rough it in the most extreme conditions; their determination to place themselves in harm’s way in the pursuit of the facts; and their frustrations with military and government restrictions, as well as the editors. Fully illustrated to showcase the best examples of front-line reporting from the Civil War to the War on Terror, War Correspondent offers fascinating insight into the psyche of those that cover the cataclysmic events of our time. Jean Hood is an acclaimed writer and historian. She formerly worked as Information Officer at Lloyd’s Register of Shipping, and has published widely on maritime and naval subjects. She is the author of several books and was a major contributor to the landmark volume Ship: A History in Art & Photography.

Growing Up Grizzly The True Story of Baylee and Her Cubs Concept and photos by Amy Shapira, Text by Douglas H. Chadwick 978-0-7627-7979-6 ■ September 2011 $12.95 US/$14.50 CAN ■ World ■ Paper ■ 11 x 81/2 48 pp ■ 30/CTN ■ FalconGuides ■ NATURE

Growing Up Grizzly is a factual story of a mother grizzly bear named Baylee, her three cubs, and a two-year-old grizzly who Baylee adopts into their family. Grizzly bears are extremely protective of their young and generally do not tolerate other bears. However, Baylee raised her adopted son, Emmett, along with her three cubs until he was ready to live on his own. Like people, every grizzly bear is a little different from every other one, each with its own personality. The story is told with words and photographs exactly as it happened. The authors pledge to donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book to Vital Ground (­vitalground.org), a non-profit conservation organization that works with private landowners to protect essential habitat in the last ecosystems where grizzlies roam. With its many partners, the group has helped conserve more than a quarter of a million acres in Alaska and the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Amy Shapira returned to the same remote cove in the Alaskan wilderness for six consecutive summers amassing over 7,500 images for this book. Several of her photographs have been featured on a PBS documentary, and many have been published in magazines and newspapers. Douglas H. Chadwick is a biologist who has studied animals around the world. He has written nine books and hundreds of articles about nature for popular magazines such as National Geographic. He and his wife reared two children in a remote cabin on the edge of Glacier Park and had grizzlies for close neighbors.

Whale Song Journeys into the Secret Lives of the North Atlantic Humpbacks Andrew Stevenson 978-0-7627-7971-0 ■ November 2011 $27.50 US/$29.95 CAN ■ North America ■ Cloth 9 x 101/2 ■ 176 pp ■ 16/CTN ■ Lyons Press NATURE

Four years ago, as Andrew Stevenson and his daughter Elsa watched a humpback launch itself out of the water off a Bermudan beach, she asked the question, “Why does a whale breach?” This was the beginning of an interesting and challenging project to film the whales underwater, fifteen miles off shore, in the middle of their migratory crossings. Stevenson’s unique, close-up photographs, video footage, and audio recordings have provided remarkable new evidence of the whales’ migratory lives in the waters around Bermuda, their breeding grounds in the Caribbean, and their feeding grounds off the coast of Canada. Stevenson’s award-winning documentary film and his book, Whale Song, are the astonishing result of his work with the humpback whales and serve as a valued addition to what we know about these mysterious and majestic animals. Andrew Stevenson has spent over five years and close to 1,000 hours on or in the water observing North ­Atlantic humpback whales off Bermuda. His work has appeared in The Explorers Journal of the New York ­Explorers Club and the Society of Marine Mammology. In 2010, Andrew’s film Where the Whales Sing won the Best ­Emerging Underwater Film-maker Award at the Blue Ocean Film Festival.

A beautiful, full-color celebration of the great American lighthouses, their keepers, their histories, and their ongoing stories

Lighthouses are filled with meaning and mystery. Among our most historic and romantic structures, they are often located in beautiful places—on spectacular promontories or pristine barrier islands. Many, with their soaring brick walls, intricate steel skeletons, or cozy dwellings covered with Victorian gingerbread, are architectural treasrues. Nearly all are more than a century old and some more than two centuries. Most are associated with drama-tragic shipwrecks, heroic rescues, self-sacrifice, and loves lost or found. —Ray Jones, from the Introduction to the 2002 edition of American Lighthouses

For more than two centuries, lighthouses have served the practical purpose of helping sailors find their way through treacherous waters, guiding them home or taking them safely through passages on their way to adventure. These historic towers and houses form a sparkling chain of lights along our coasts, a reminder of the past echoing with adventure and mystery, a lure for travelers looking for a glimpse into a romantic past. American Lighthouses offers more than just a tour of the beautiful and historic navigational beacons dotting the coasts and lakes of the United States. This fully illustrated, one-of-a-kind handbook describes more than 450 lighthouses, detailing their history and architecture and providing full information on visiting or just viewing them. Included are many “endangered” lights and “ghost lights,” which are no longer standing. The authors provide an engaging overview of the history of the lighthouse service, each individual light and its keepers, and surprising facts about the construction and maintenance of the buildings and their massive Fresnel lenses. In addition to directions to each lighthouse, details on access, parking, and visitor hours, advice on the best vantage points for vewing and picture taking, and nearby sites of interest are also included. Bruce Roberts is a photographer whose work has appeared in Life, Sports Illustrated, and Time-Life Books. Cheryl Shelton-Roberts is a lighthouse historian who has collected hundreds of stories about lighthouses and their keepers. Ray Jones is the author or coauthor of numerous books on history and travel.

This remarkable book is for everyone who fishes with a fly rod—or wants to learn. Using a fly rod, fishing for trout, salmon, bass, pike, panfish, or saltwater gamefish can become the most exciting kind of sport there is. Joan Wulff’s New Fly Casting Techniques pioneers a set of casting “mechanics” and offers precise descriptive terms for every part of the cast. There are sections on line speed, improving accuracy and distance, loop control, shooting lines, aerial mending, the double haul, correcting common mistakes, and much, much more.This is the most comprehensive book ever written on fly casting—and it’s for everyone from beginning to experienced anglers. Joan Wulff is the first instructor to unravel the mystery of fly casting to the point of pioneering a set of mechanics, first presented in her book, Fly Casting Techniques (1987). She is also the author of Joan Wulff’s Fly Fishing: Expert Advice from a Woman’s Perspective (1991), and Fly Casting Accuracy (1997). Her fly casting column appears in Fly Rod & Reel magazine. Joan has cast a fly an incredible 161 feet! Over a period of sixteen years, she has won an international and 17 national championships. Additionally, she continues to be the recipient of numerous awards relating to her efforts in both the fishing industry and conservation. In 1996 Joan offered the first-ever schools for instructors of fly casting, and became a consultant to the R.L. Winston Rod Company to further the development of tackle for women.

This thoroughly revised and expanded edition of Taylor Streit’s classic addresses the “real reasons people catch trout,” and offers suggestions and tips to help the aspiring angler take advantage of his or her own fly-fishing instincts. Since Instinctive was first published in 2003, the author has kept track of certain essential elements that were missing from the first edition. This thorough revision benefits from more than seven years of his instinctive rumination. Rewritten with an eye toward a new audience, Instinctive aims for those who fish in competitive situations and overfished waters. Additional content includes fishing tailwaters with tiny flies, practical information on insect hatches (tricos, blue winged olives, and green drakes) and illustrations of knots and rigs. Also included are additional chapters on the environment, stream manners, and safety. Taylor Streit was wading the fabled waters of the Catskills before he was 10; then tying flies commercially and guiding in his teens. He moved to northern New Mexico in the late 1960s where he opened a fly shop. He’s guided fly fishermen for 25 years—primarily in New Mexico but also in the Bahamas and Argentina. In 2001 he was unanimously inducted into the Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame as a legendary guide. He authored a popular book on fly fishing New Mexico and writes for various magazines and newspapers. His photos have appeared in Fly Rod and Reel and Gray’s Sporting Journal. He lives in Taos, New Mexico, near his favorite river—the wild Rio Grande.

Vince Wilcox’s Naturally Artificial Signature Flies will enable tiers of all levels—from absolute beginners to longtime tying experts—to follow along with ease thanks to detailed, color images of every step. Some of the flies will feature over fifty photos in order to clearly illustrate for the beginner how to complete the fly patterns. The expert tier will find a plethora of useful tips and techniques throughout. Featured flies will cover all fishing situations from nymphs, dry flies, and terrestrials, and discuss the thought processes behind creating them, the materials applied, and the inherent properties they possess. Also find a brief section on how and when to fish each pattern, a useful feature not found in most tying books. A fly shop owner and regular contributor to Fly Tyer, Fly Fisherman, American Angler, and The Drake magazines, Vince Wilcox is one of the youngest and most respected names in the fly-tying community, an up-and-comer. Wilcox owns a popular fly shop in Rainbow Lake as well as the on-line store which he has maintained for nearly a decade. The shop and on-line store continually grow as each new article hits the newsstands.

With more than 650 tips, the Almanac is an indispensable reference that will help any bass angler improve his or her fishing success quickly and significantly. An easy-to-read reference and guide, the Almanac is loaded with detailed illustrations and photographs. And it’s packed with tips and tidbits that the author has picked up over a lifetime of bass fishing. Weiss examines all types of bass fishing, including: largemouth, smallmouth, and spotted bass biology; tips on reading maps and using sonar; habits of bass in natural lakes, man-made reservoirs, rivers, streams, and strip-mine pits; how weather affects bass; tips on selecting rods, reels, and lines; how to fish live and artificial baits, jigs, soft plastic lures, weedless spoons and jigging spoons; and trolling tips that work. John Weiss is the author of numerous fishing and hunting books, including The Whitetail Deer Hunter’s Almanac (Lyons, 2002; net sales 15,000). He has published hundreds of bassfishing articles in a series of national magazines.

The techniques and the insights every angler needs to catch the predatory and elusive brown trout

The most secretive of the trout family but also the most aggressive, brown trout are a paradox. Among freshwater fish, their predatory nature is rivaled only by the pike family. Among fishermen, they are an object of endless fascination and speculation. After a lifetime of fishing the West, the author has reached a point where he can annually catch more than a half dozen monster browns, each weighing more than five pounds. Most fishermen would give their eye teeth to reproduce his success. With detailed descriptions of his unusual techniques, and with some surprising, often counterintuitive revelations about what works and what doesn’t, this book passes along all the author’s secrets. John Holt is the author of thirteen published works of nonfiction, two short story collections, and a novel. His work has appeared in numerous magazines and newspapers including Fly Fisherman, The Denver Post, Sports Afield, Men’s Journal, Gray’s Sporting Journal, American Cowboy, Big Sky Journal, Fly Rod & Reel, Audubon, E, and Travel and Leisure.

What makes Trailblazer British Walking Guides different? This 12-title series to Britain’s best-known long-distance paths is regularly updated. These books are unique, with highly detailed hand-drawn trail maps featuring the kind of information not normally found on maps—walking times, gradients, important directions, hotels, restaurants, pubs and points of interest. As one reviewer put it, the maps are “user-friendly, with route-finding tips scribbled onto the map itself. Gradients are indicated by arrows—great if you don’t know your contours from your condors.”
