I spotted Mike across the stage and headed in his direction. My heart was racing, and my stomach was tied up in a huge knot. “Um . . . Uh . . . Hey, Mike?” He turned, saw me, and smiled. “Hey, darlin’, how ya doing?” “Uh, well, good . . . I guess.” I was now having trouble looking him in the eye. “Something on your mind, Missy?” And then, out it came. “Is it true? Are you really going to make me go blind next season?” I waited for what seemed forever for my answer. “Yes, Missy, you will be going blind next season.” My heart sank. I felt sick. The tears sprung up and out before I even had time to digest this news. I couldn’t hold them back. I madly tried to think of something, anything

You’ll see.” He gave me a big hug. “R-r-really?” I sobbed. “You’re not going to write me out?” “Of course not,” he said. . . .“You have a great future ahead.” I knew he wasn’t just saying it to make me feel better; he wasn’t that kind of guy. He went on to explain what would happen to Mary, and the show, and how he knew this would be a great opportunity for me. I trusted Mike and chose to accept the wonderful feeling of relief that had come over me.

In 1941, the author and six fellow prisoners of war escaped a Soviet labor camp in Yakutsk—a camp where enduring hunger, cold, untended wounds, and untreated illnesses, and avoiding daily executions were everyday feats. Their march—over thousands of miles by foot—out of Siberia, through China, the Gobi Desert, Tibet, and over the Himalayas to British India is a remarkable statement about man’s desire to be free. Written in a hauntingly detailed, no-holds-barred way, the book inspired the Peter Wier film The Way Back, due for release in 2011. Previous editions have sold hundreds of thousands of copies, and this updated paperback version includes an afterword written by the author shortly before his death, as well as the author’s foreword to the book’s Polish edition. This edition of The Long Walk is thus destined to outrank its classic status and guaranteed to forever stay in the reader’s mind.

“One of the epic treks of the human race. . . . History is filled with people who have crossed immense distances and survived despite horrific odds.

On the heels of his acclaimed The Dangerous World of Butterflies, investigative journalist Peter Laufer is back to chronicle his worldwide quest to penetrate the underworld of international animal smuggling. In Forbidden Creatures, Laufer exposes the network of hunters, traders, and customers who constitute this nefarious business—which, estimated at $10 to $20 billion annually, is second only to illegal drug trafficking in the money it earns criminals. Laufer asks: What is being smuggled, from where and why? Who is doing the smuggling? Who is doing the buying? What is being done to stop the illegal trading? What future awaits these endangered animals? Taking readers to exotic and often lawless locales, Laufer introduces brazen and dangerous traders and wealthy customers whose greed and mindless self-interest perpetuate what is now a crisis of survival for a growing number of wild species. Woven throughout with riveting stories from law enforcement officials and federal prosecutors, Forbidden Creatures is a compel-

We had, on a strategic scale, plenty of warning that 9/11 was coming. Al Qaida told us they were coming, and they launched a series of preliminary attacks. . . .We did nothing. Three thousand people died as the result of that complacency. Now, in the aftermath, it is our job to move as fast as is humanly possible to block any and all future attacks. Amazingly, though, as you tour this nation and examine the prime targets that beg to be defended from terrorist attack, what you find, eight years later, is that virtually nothing meaningful has been done. True, large new bureaucracies have been created and huge, shiny new office buildings constructed, but in terms of concrete measures that will stand in the way of determined, evil men, there is very, very little.

A top veteran CIA operative scrutinizes Homeland Security—with terrifying results The Central Intelligence Agency’s most respected former Middle East counterterrorism officer applies a critical lens to the state of America’s Homeland Security system and asks, “Are we really any safer than we were on 9/11?” Have the vast new bureaucracies that have arisen and the billions spent translated into real protection? Or has complacency set in? His answer is terrifying.

Charles S. Faddis served twenty years in the Central Intelligence Agency as an operations officer, holding positions as a department chief at the CIA’s Counterterrorism Center in Washington, D.C., and as a chief of station in the Middle East. He is the author of Beyond Repair (October 2009, Lyons Press), a scathing critique of today’s CIA, and the coauthor of Operation Hotel California (October 2008 hardcover, May 2010 paper; Lyons Press), which recounts how he led the first CIA mission into Iraq in 2002 in preparation for the pending invasion.

From Chapter 1, “The Accusers” By the time the Salem witch hunt had run its course, more than seventy men, women, and children had volunteered themselves as witnesses or accusers. What had started with a few tremulous girls became a communitywide upheaval involving every social stratum.

Tiger conservation is one of today’s most pressing environmental issues. From a world population of approximately 100,000 tigers in 1939, these majestic carnivores have dwindled to less than 3,000 in the wild today, much of this due to poaching and habitat destruction. A true adventure tale from the author of the award-winning The Soul of the Rhino, Bones of the Tiger tells the fascinating story of one man’s quest to save the man-eating tigers of Nepal. Set in Royal Chitwan National Park, it is also a timely story, given that 2010 is, in much of Asia, the Year of the Tiger.

Hemanta Mishra is a distinguished biologist and conservationist who has worked with the Smithsonian Institution, the World Wildlife Fund, and the World Bank. He was awarded the J. Paul Getty Wildlife Conservation Prize and is credited with halting the extinction of the rhino and tiger populations in Nepal by merging Eastern philosophy with Western science. He lives in Vienna,Virginia.

Unique in explaining the real story of atypical tiger behavior— behavior that ultimately leads to conflict with humans, sometimes resulting in death—this book also includes stunning photos by renowned Japanese photographer Mashahiro Iijima.

“I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: I adore Patti Digh’s Life is a Verb. I love her writing, her depth, her sizzle.” —Jennifer Louden, author of The Woman’s Comfort Book

What would you be doing today if you only had 37 days to live? In October 2003, Patti Digh’s stepfather was diagnosed with lung cancer. He died 37 days later. The timeframe made an impression on her. What emerged was a commitment to ask herself every morning: What would I be doing today if I had only 37 days left to live? The answers changed her life and led to this new kind of book. Part meditation, part how-to guide, part memoir, Life is a Verb is all heart. Within these pages—enhanced by original artwork and wide, inviting margins ready to be written in—Digh identifies six core practices to jump-start a meaningful life: Say Yes, Trust Yourself, Slow Down, Be Generous, Speak Up, and Love More. Within this framework she supplies 37 edgy, funny, and literary life stories, each followed by a “do it now” 10-minute exercise as well as a practice to try for 37 days—and perhaps the rest of your life.

We all go through major life transitions—whether they take us by surprise or we take the leap and “make a shift” into unknown territory ourselves. Jobs change, lovers change, ideas change, people change. But, too often, we become overwhelmed by fear when faced with a new direction. We become stuck. This book fundamentally changes the way we cope with change. Dr. Jeffrey Hull presents his unique “Life-Shifting” method—a sixstep program combining Western psychological theory and Eastern ideas with the practicality of life coaching. The aim: to learn how to shift out of the fearful thinking that inevitably accompanies each stage of change. Designed in the easily accessible format of a “driver’s manual” for navigating life’s ups and downs, and with diagnostic tools, practices, and exercises throughout, Shift! Happens shows us how to move through fear, release our anxieties, and accept change as something that happens for us and not to us. Jeffrey W. Hull, PhD, is a psychotherapist, executive/life coach, and author widely recognized as a pioneer in the fields of performance and life coaching for executives. His clients range from individuals to multinational Fortune 500 corporations. He has appeared on national television programs such as Good Morning America. He lives in New York City and in the Hudson River Valley.

America’s legendary Blue Ridge Mountains region is known for its rich history and culture and, not least, its traditional cuisine. But much of what’s cooking there is new, including a thriving Farm to Table movement and increasingly established Slow Food communities. Such movements’ philosophies—caring about where food comes from, how it is grown, and how it is prepared—have transformed the culinary scene for newcomers and old-timers alike. The region is thus ripe for The New Blue Ridge Cookbook, which takes a fresh look at local, seasonal foods and honors efforts of sustainability, as well as the area’s rich culinary history. With some 100 recipes showcasing such traditional foods as apples, candy roasters, and ramps, the book presents new approaches by chefs, farmers, and others in the know—while also sharing amusing anecdotes and culinary traditions, as well as information about the region’s artisanal food products and local beers and wines. Elizabeth Wiegand is the author of The Outer Banks Cookbook (ThreeForks), and her articles on food, travel, and design have appeared in the Washington Post, Southern Living, and Our State: North Carolina. She lives in Raleigh, North Carolina.

From a deadly border to America’s kidnapping capital—the secret lives at the heart of the immigration controversy

ILLEGAL Hope and Loss at the Mexican Border Terry Greene Sterling 978-1-59921-861-8 • AUGUST 2010 $16.95 US/$21.50 CAN • World • Paper • 5 1⁄2 x 8 1⁄2 • 240 pp • 12/CTN 20 b&w photos • Lyons Press • Current Events

Arizona’s violent border is the busiest gateway for illegal immigration in America, making Arizona Ground Zero for the immigration debate. No state is as hostile to the undocumented, and no city is as unwelcoming as Phoenix.Yet Phoenix is home to thousands who live in the shadows, where civil rights are neglected and lives are lost. Illegal sheds light on the invisible immigrants who persevere despite kidnappings and drug wars, an ongoing recession, and laws barring them from working, learning, and driving. By profiling these undocumented people, and those—like notorious Sheriff Joe Arpaio— who persecute them, author Terry Greene Sterling courageously reveals the changing face of immigration in America and gives new insight into a divisive national crisis.

Few military feats stir the imagination as does the image of the lone hero-marksman, positioned a seemingly impossible distance away from a target he must hit dead-on—from snipers in the world’s dry-land hotspots to those on the Navy destroyer Bainbridge who, in April 2009, picked off three Somali pirates holding an American ship captain hostage. Sniper presents heart-pounding real-life tales about the top front-line snipers in Afghanistan, Iraq, and elsewhere around the globe today—Navy Seals, Silver Star–winners, long-distance record-holders, and more. Authors Matt Larsen and Gina Cavallaro also provide a close look at sniper schools (the U.S. Army has two of them; the U.S. Marine Corps has another), sniper profiles, and who makes a good sniper. Sergeant First Class Matt Larsen, a longtime trainer in survival and fighting techniques for the Army Rangers, revised and updated the U.S. Army Survival Handbook (Lyons). He is the Director of the Modern Army Combatives Program, which he created, and the Commandant of the US Army Combatives School, which he founded at Fort Benning, Georgia. He lives in Columbus, Georgia. Gina Cavallaro is a staff reporter for the Army Times. She has been embedded in Iraq five times and is currently in Afghanistan. She lives in Alexandria,Virginia.

Assault in Norway is the classic account of a legendary raid on the Nazi war program. By 1942 Germany had a seemingly insurmountable lead over the Allies in developing an atomic bomb. Contributing to this situation was its access to a crucial ingredient: “heavy water,” found in great abundance at a fortresslike factory in occupied Norway. Allied hopes of stalling the Nazi nuclear program soon focused on sabotaging the cliffside plant—a suicidal mission. But a team of brave Norwegian exiles, trained in Britain, infiltrated their homeland and, hiding in the wilds, awaited the opportunity to launch one of the war’s most daring commando raids. Basing his gripping narrative in large part on interviews with the commandos themselves, Thomas Gallagher recounts in vivid detail the planning and execution of Operation Gunnerside. Assault in Norway recalls the intrigue found in such wartime classics as David Howarth’s We Die Alone and The Sledge Patrol, and the mission it recounts inspired the 1965 Hollywood film The Heroes of Telemark. Thomas Gallagher (1918-1992) was a journalist and the author of eight books, including The Gathering Darkness, nominated for a National Book Award; and Fire at Sea: The Story of the Moro Castle, which won the Edgar Allan Poe Award for nonfiction.

On July 25, 1956, the luxury Italian ocean liner Andrea Doria collided with the Stockholm near Nantucket, Massachusetts. Half a century later the wreck of the Andrea Doria is still claiming lives. Divers consider it to be the Everest of diving. At 225 feet below the surface, ordinary air becomes toxic, and divers without sufficient protection suffer nitrogen narcosis, “the rapture of the deep,” as they seek the ultimate symbol of deep-sea diving accomplishments: china teacups and plates from the Andrea Doria. Fatal Depth follows a scuba diving charter boat, the Seeker, over the fateful summers of 1987 and 1988 as five of its customers die, all while exploring the fabled wreck. Based on Joe Haberstroh’s award-winning series of articles that appeared in Newsday, it tells the story of the ship that was the pride of the Italian fleet, how that ship sank, and the gripping personal stories of those who live or die for a teacup from its remains. Joe Haberstroh is the “On the Waters” columnist for Newsday. In 1997, he won a Pulitzer Prize for coverage of the crash of TWA flight 800. He lives in Bay Shore, New York.

A GENERAL HISTORY OF THE ROBBERIES & MURDERS OF THE MOST NOTORIOUS PIRATES Captain Charles Johnson; Introduction and Commentary by David Cordingly 978-1-59921-905-9 • APRIL 2010 $19.95 US/$24.95 CAN • U.S. & Canada • Paper • 7 1⁄2 x 9 1⁄4 • 384 pp 12/CTN • Previous edition:978-1-58574-558-6; $19.95; TP; 6/2002; Lyons Press • History

Originally published in 1724—and now with an introduction and commentary by the best-selling author of a modern-day pirate classic—this famous account of the most notorious pirates of the day was an immediate success. Written by the mysterious Captain Johnson, it appeared at a time since described as the “Golden Age of Piracy.” Vividly capturing the realities of the savage seafaring existence—detailing events, including trials, of the day’s most feared pirates—it was largely responsible for the posthumous fame of Blackbeard and Captain Kidd, and has become the main source of information about the female pirates Mary Read and Anne Bonny. This book is today generally regarded as the classic study of one of the most popular subjects in maritime history. Captain Charles Johnson was long thought to be Robinson Crusoe author Daniel Defoe. His exact identity is still unknown. David Cordingly is the best-selling author of Under the Black Flag: The Romance and the Reality of Life Among the Pirates. He was previously Keeper of Pictures and Head of Exhibitions at the UK’s National Maritime Museum. He lives by the sea in Brighton, England.

One man’s journey in search of himself—and his long-lost father

AN EXCERPT

Francis Richard Davis left when I was six, gone before I knew him. He abandoned my mom, brother, sister, and me in the early 1970s. He made it official with a phone call. I remember the neon yellow telephone cord stretching from the kitchen along the left side of my mom’s closed bedroom door. With eyes fresh with tears of permanent loss, she hung up the phone and announced the news. “Your father won’t be coming back any more.”

Merrick Alpert’s life dramatically changed the day his father left.

He worked as an advance staffer for Vice President Al Gore and as a United States peacekeeper in Bosnia.

He lives with his wife, Alexandra, and their three children in Mystic, Connecticut.

Morning Sun is the true story of Alpert’s life after his father abandoned him—a memoir that details the events that led him on a journey to law school, to the war-torn streets of Bosnia, to the American landscape of an historic race for the White House, and to a profound discovery in Morning Sun, Iowa.

This is the absorbing story of Ida Lewis, born in Newport, Rhode Island in 1842, and the fearless rescues she made at Lime Rock Lighthouse. In 1853, her father, Captain Hosea Lewis, became the first keeper of this lighthouse. But after he was disabled by stroke, then-fifteen-year-old Ida and her mother took over Lime Rock Light from 1857 until 1872, when her father died. Her mother was appointed lighthouse keeper, a position she held until her death in 1879, though Ida did the work. In 1879, Ida was officially appointed to the job, which she remained in until her own passing, in 1911.

Jones Beach looms large in the hearts and lives of millions of New Yorkers. From its windswept beginnings on the far edge of an empire to its twentieth-century status as the greatest public beachfront resort in America, it has been home to countless memories. Situated on a barrier island linked to Long Island, Jones Beach State Park is today the most popular beach on the East Coast, with some six million visitors a year.

Ida saved at least eighteen lives over nearly forty years on the tiny island in Newport. She became famous nationwide in the late 1860s after one of her daring rescues, and the town of Newport celebrated her on Independence Day 1869. In 1924 the Rhode Island legislature changed the name of Lime Rock to Ida Lewis Rock. In 1995, a new class of Coast Guard buoy tenders was named for her. Lenore Skomal is the author of ten books, including Lady Liberty: The History of the Statue of Liberty and a previous edition of Lighthouse Keeper’s Daughter (under the title The Keeper of Lime Rock). Her weekly humor column and videocast (www.goerie.com) has won numerous Society of Professional Journalist awards. She lives in Erie, Pennsylvania.

In this evocative, illustrated book, John Hanc explores the traditions, institutions, controversies, and characters of this beloved seaside resort, now a state historic landmark. His richly detailed prose comes together with a wonderful collection of archival photographs to make this a must read for anyone who has visited Jones Beach.The foreword is by “Mr. Long Island,” longtime former Newsday columnist Ed Lowe. John Hanc teaches journalism and writing at the New York Institute of Technology. He is the author of eight books, most recently The Coolest Race on Earth: Mud, Madmen, Glaciers, and Grannies at the Antarctica Marathon.

An inspiring story of the epic 2008 floods—and one devastated community’s will to rebuild

THE 1,000-YEAR FLOOD Destruction, Loss, Rescue, and Redemption along the Mississippi River Stephen J. Lyons 978-0-7627-5270-6 • AUGUST 2010 $16.95 US/$21.50 CAN • World • Paper • 6 x 9 • 256 pp • 24/CTN 16-page color insert • Globe Pequot • Current Events/Social Science

Every year, flooding wreaks havoc across much of the Midwest. But the floods of 2008 were on a scale unlike anything seen in generations. From Minnesota to Missouri, Illinois to Iowa, the “Thousand Year Floods” of 2008—as some climatologists called them—caused tens of billions of dollars of damage. The human stories associated with this epic event that affected the Mississippi River and its tributaries are riveting. The 1,000-Year Flood is a powerful tale of heroism, of heart-wrenching loss, and of hope. Looking at the epic events of the summer of 2008—and, in particular, at the devastated city of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and its will to rebuild—Stephen Lyons weaves a compelling

and inspiring narrative set against the backdrop of a millennium of natural disasters in the region. He asks: What does the flooding mean for residents who face it year after year? Are the affected areas ignored because they’re fly-over states? Stephen J. Lyons is the author of A View from the Inland Northwest: Everyday Life in America (Lyons). A member of the National Book Critics Circle, he has published articles, reviews, essays, and poems in numerous publications, and is a regular contributor to the Writers on The Range syndication service at High Country News, sent to eighty newspapers across the West.

For thirty years Lucinda Delaney Schroeder held an unusual government position: She was one of a handful of women special agents with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. In August 1992 she accepted an assignment that forever changed her life. The petite blonde left behind her husband and seven-year-old daughter in Wisconsin and posed as a divorcee big-game hunter in Alaska in order to infiltrate an international ring of poachers out for trophy wildlife. A Hunt for Justice takes readers along during Schroeder’s dangerous mission. More than an adventure or true-crime tale, it is the story of a woman surviving in a male-dominated field, a woman against the wilderness, and a wife and mother risking it all for a cause she believes in. Selected for the 2007 Amelia Bloomer Project list of recommended feminist literature for young readers.

In 1950, when no mountain taller than 8,000 meters had ever been climbed, Maurice Herzog led an expedition of French climbers to the summit of an 8,075-meter (26,493-foot) Himalayan peak called Annapurna. But unlike other climbs, the routes up Annapurna had never been charted. Herzog and his team had to locate the mountain using crude maps, pick out a single untried route, and go for the summit. Annapurna is the unforgettable account of this heroic climb and of its harrowing aftermath, including a nightmare descent of frostbite, snow blindness, and near death. Herzog’s masterful narrative is one of the great mountain-adventure stories of all time.

Lucinda Delaney Schroeder was a special agent with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service from 1974 to 2004. She was not allowed to write about her experiences until she retired, but in 1994 she appeared on the A&E television network to discuss the operation. She lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Meanwhile, tough-love coach James Atkins serves as a cop in the Chelsea Police Department’s Gang Unit, asking for his players’ blood, sweat, and tears on the field . . . and hoping their blood doesn’t spill off it.

Now in paperback! The true story of a boxer’s unlikely road to becoming a world champion

The author of this book, Bob Halloran, is a consultant on a major motion picture due in 2010, The Fighter, that tells this story and stars Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale.

IRISH THUNDER The Hard Life and Times of Micky Ward Bob Halloran 978-1-59921-907-3 • MAY 2010 $14.95 US/$18.95 CAN • World • Paper • 5 1⁄2 x 8 1⁄2 • 296 pp • 24/CTN Previous edition: 11/2007; 978-1-59921-220-3; Cloth • Lyons Press Sports & Recreation

“Irish” Micky Ward was always the underdog—one able to stage a stunning comeback late in a fight. After a fifteen-year pro career followed by a string of defeats and three years of retirement, the Lowell, Massachusetts, native defeated Arturo Gatti in 2002, capturing the world light welterweight title. The grueling battle—named “Fight of the Year” by Ring magazine and “Fight of the Century” by boxing fans around America—was broadcast live on HBO, made Ward famous, and launched two legendary rematches.

In Irish Thunder, Bob Halloran recounts Ward’s rise to hero status, his rivalry with his imprisoned brother, and the negotiations, betrayals, and drugs that shaped a wild youth who ultimately became a nationally respected boxer. This is a story about a boxer from a boxing family and a boxing town—and it is a wrenching account of life in blue-collar America. Ward’s dramatic victories inside the ring are recounted in gripping detail, but it is his victory outside the ring that inspires. Bob Halloran is the author of Breakdown (Lyons. p. 46), and the weekend news and sports anchor at WCVB-TV in Boston, Massachusetts.

The “tape-measure home run” is the greatest single act of power in the game of baseball, and the tales of these homers are the most cherished legacies players and fans hand down through the generations. Each long-distance shot has become fable; they are baseball’s versions of the feats of Paul Bunyon, Hercules, and Samson.

Baseball fans are by nature philosophical creatures, prone to engaging fellow devotees of the Grand Old Game in such inherently subjective, often ridiculous, and thoroughly enjoyable debates as: Who was the best-hitting pitcher of all-time? Who are the best players left out of the Hall of Fame? Which team dressed its players in the worst uniforms? What was the most lopsided trade ever? Which movie stands above all others as the best baseball flick? Who was the best female player ever? Such questions fall into a wide range of categories and are pondered during pauses in the game, happy hours at the bar, and commercial breaks at home.

No one but Bill Jenkinson could separate myth from fact and actually study, rank, and describe in riveting detail baseball’s strongest longball hitters. Fully illustrated with player photos and aerial ballpark photos showing the landing spots of each stadium’s longest home runs, Baseball’s Ultimate Power is the definitive book on the tapemeasure home run and its practitioners. Jenkinson travels through the decades to give us the distances, descriptions, and comparisons of the forty longest hitters in major league history, the ten longesthitting active players, the five mightiest from the nineteenth century, and the five best tape-measure batsmen from the Negro League era. Bill Jenkinson is the author of the critically acclaimed The Year Babe Ruth Hit 104 Home Runs. The top expert on the history of long-distance home runs, he has been a consultant for the Baseball Hall of Fame, Major League Baseball, the Society for American Baseball Research, the Babe Ruth Museum, and ESPN. He lives in Willow Grove, Pennsylvania.

From sandlots and skyboxes to TV rooms and sports bars, America’s love for baseball has inspired too-numerous-to-count memories, discussions, and tributes. Josh Pahigian takes us on a road trip across America to honor the game’s players, fans, and ballparks. Through a series of engaging essays, he reminds us of the game’s effect on American culture: how the game evolved while the nation came of age, how baseball helped break down barriers, and how it unified citizens when we needed it most.

Baseball and ghost stories are as American as apple pie. Ghostly Baseball combines both in this fun and freaky collection of otherworldly yarns. From the authors of the successful Haunted Baseball, this is an all-new collection of more, scarier, creepier stories collected from ball players, stadium personnel, umpires, front-office people, and fans, exploring the sometimes amusing and often spooky connection between baseball and the paranormal.

From the author of Thinning the Herd and Weirdly Beloved, here is a new and even more irreverent compendium about those who have filtered out of the gene pool, either by their own stupidity or by dumb luck. Among the sad but true tales inside: • John Dominic Robertson died doing it doggie-style. . . . Sort of. EMTs arrived to find the man wearing only socks and a dog collar chained to a wall. He had apparently asphyxiated while having sex with his girlfriend. His wife was called to identify the body. • The driver of an SUV struck a fire hydrant, sending it hurtling through the air. The hydrant landed on the head of Humberto Hernandez as he crossed the street with his wife. Humberto died instantly. Everyone else was fine. • Charles Keith Teer and William Russell Redfern of Snellville, Georgia, got into a fight over a woman. Redfern, who was born with no arms, head-butted Teer, killing him instantly. Cynthia Ceilán is the author of Thinning the Herd: Tales of the Weirdly Departed and Weirdly Beloved: Tales of Strange Bedfellows, Odd Couplings, and Love Gone Bad (both Lyons). Her Web site is weirdlyhuman.com. She lives in New York City.

Syria has always been a crossroads. Kings, caliphs, crusaders, and conquerors have all carved their way through this land, leaving reminders of past glories scattered across the countryside. Few other countries can match its plethora of ancient monuments. And, in the cities, travelers can thread their way deep into the alleys of centuries-old, spice-scented marketplaces. But this nation is more than a living museum. Invitations to chat and drink tea or to come over for dinner are daily occurrences for travelers, who discover that the legendary Syrian hospitality is the real highlight of a journey here.

Infinite variety is the key to Brittany’s timeless appeal—from more than 1,200 miles of unparalleled coastline to the rich landscapes of the interior, from architectural gems to unspoiled rural villages. That’s not to mention the vibrant Celtic heritage revealed in the language, music, colorful festivals, and mystical sites. Haunting megaliths or medieval towns, seafood or surfing beaches, legends or wild landscapes—Brittany is waiting.

The Dordogne takes travelers by surprise. Green and calm, at first glance it seems just another corner of rural France designed for good food, fine wine, and easy living. But this region holds humanity’s first great works of art: provocative cave paintings that go back over 15,000 years BC. It’s been a busy crossroads ever since. A dramatic history hasn’t kept the “land of a thousand castles” from polishing the arts of everyday life. There’s an inviting cuisine based on duck, foie gras, and truffles, and lovely villages of warm golden stone.

The “Other” South of France, Languedoc-Roussillon is a delicious dose of Mediterranean conviviality and landscapes; of olives groves, vineyards, and cypress trees; of sleepy wine villages and buzzing cities such as Montpellier and Nîmes. Extending from the river Rhône to Spain, the region encompasses some of France’s most iconic sights. It’s a great place to be as lazy or as active as you prefer, whether that means a slow cruise down the idyllic Canal du Midi, wine tasting in the Corbières, a trek through the Pyrenees, or kayaking down the majestic Gorges du Tarn.

Along the course of her greatest river, the Loire, lie some of the defining sights of France. Visitors journey from afar to see sumptuous châteaux like Chambord and Villandry, legendary vineyards, and fragrant rose gardens—and in the process they discover much more than they ever imagined. From the infectious buzz of vibrant cities like Tours, Angers, and Orléans to the healing tranquility of slumbering rural villages, this is a captivating voyage of discovery into a rich cultural heritage accompanied by fine food and crisp, fruity wines.

The Duchy of Normandy, founded by Vikings 1,000 years ago, is bound by kinship and history to the English-speaking world. Its great ports Cherbourg and Le Havre, picturesque fishing harbors like Honfleur or Dieppe, chic resorts, and long sandy beaches resonate with memories linking Normandy to its neighbor across the Channel. Explore an astonishing artistic and architectural heritage, including Impressionist shrines like Monet’s home beside the Seine; and a rustic interior with picture-book charm. Dine in hearty local style, and enjoy Normandy’s powerful apple brandy, Calvados.

Sandwiched between Italy, mainland France, and North Africa, Provence and the Côte d’Azur is blessed with a fascinating history and a mix of cultural influences. The Camargue’s pink flamingos give way to bustling Marseilles, France’s second city. The Luberon’s chestnut forests and lavender-fields undulate down to the seaside towns and sandy beaches of the Alpes-Maritimes. There is glamorous Nice. Smaller coastal towns have long been synonymous with art, exuberance, and untouched beauty: visit the Picasso museum, star-spot at the Cannes Film Festival, or kayak Caribbean-blue bays. Or simply bask in the region’s microclimate, which goes far to explain the residents’ sunny, Mediterranean temperament.

Footprint’s beautiful guide will help anyone get the most from one of Europe’s top holiday destinations. Explore medieval towns and Roman ruins, and bare some (or all) in crystal-clear waters. The guide includes extensive (and sometimes eccentric) accommodation listings, where to find the best food and drink, full festival listings, and fascinating insights into history, culture, and the environment—plus all the best advice on activities.

No, you needn’t forgo the beaches and the sun, but a family holiday in Europe can of course be about much, much more. How about taking the little darlings around the Louvre in Paris, or the Uffizi Gallery in Florence? Climb the Leaning Tower of Pisa, scale an Alp or two, or even watch Mount Etna erupt? Footprint’s new guide to savoring mainland Europe with children shows how to put the fun back into foreign holidays with a cornucopia of family-friendly places to see and things to do, plus recipes, games, and great ideas on how to get the kids as excited about being in the Old World as you are.

He reveals the best places to pitch a tent, buy local food, and plan a day out for free. Cornwall’s top family hotels are reviewed, along with must-see attractions like the Eden Project and St Michael’s Mount. Cornwall with Kids also shows how to plan a trip to the Isles of Scilly, find the best beaches for rock-pooling or surfing, spot a basking shark, or get afloat on the Falmouth estuary. All the holiday essentials are covered—from rainy-day activities to where to buy the best ice cream.

Devon offers Britain at its most lush and charming through to its most bleak and impressive landscapes. The stark uplands of Dartmoor are in easy reach of the sunny delights of the southern coast, its boating fraternity, and even the odd palm tree. Resorts like Torquay offer a retro feel, while the more historic Dartmouth is quietly charming. Entirely different, the north coast and its Atlantic rollers cater to the new surfing passion, particularly around Croyde Bay. And elsewhere is some of the prettiest countryside you could hope to see. Families can stroll it, ride it (by bike or horse), or even walk it with a llama in tow, and they can camp or else enjoy the comforts of some of the UK’s most family-oriented hotels.

“The best things come in threes,” goes the saying. This certainly rings true of Dorset, the New Forest, and the Isle of Wight. Tucked inconspicuously along England’s southern coast from Southampton to Lyme Regis, these contrasting yet complimentary regions are a treasure box of traditional English and exotic attractions for kids and adults alike. There’s the 95-mile Jurassic Coast famed for its fossils, shingle banks, and must sees such as the wonderful Swannery at Abbotsbury. The New Forest is England’s newest national park, created in 2005. The Isle of Wight has that great island feel: individual, quirky, and magical.

Visitors are nothing new to the Lakes. The Romantic poets got there first and spent many a happy hour wandering lonely as a cloud. But, more recently, a new breed has arrived: families. They have discovered the simple pleasures of vacationing in and around England’s largest national park: tranquil beaches, rugged outdoor adventures, and stately historic properties. That’s not to mention the hospitality. Fresh food and cozy accommodations abound, and there are some great microbreweries to explore when the kids are busy elsewhere.

Alastair Sawday’s Special Places: Go Slow series celebrates fascinating people, fine architecture, history, landscape and real food. It is the perfect counterbalance to our culture of haste.

Eat Slow celebrates food grown and prepared with love and consumed at leisure. You’ll find a collection of over fifty really special places to eat; places where the chefs and owners believe in using local, seasonal and often organic produce, and where the joys of conviviality and the simple pleasures of sharing a meal are put first. All the restaurants included believe in the slow food movement’s ethos that food should be good, clean, and fair. You’ll find honest value in rustic, friendly and well-priced hotels, restaurants and inns. Also featured are fifty of Britain’s best organic food producers; cheese-makers, beef-farmers and cider-makers—their stories brought to life with stunning color photographs and vivid write ups.

SPECIAL PLACES TO STAY With over one million books sold since the series began in 1994, the Special Places to Stay series has built up a loyal readership. “Special” for us is not about the number of creature comforts, but relates to many elements that make a place “work”— we are fiercely subjective in our choices. • All the places in the guides are inspected and described in a typically honest and vivid write-up. • Each guide has color photographs plus regional maps, precise directions, and helpful hints. • Clear symbols and quick reference indices help readers with their choices.

Canada’s Yukon is one the world’s last great wildernesses, where bears, moose, and caribou roam. It’s a place where hikers, paddlers, skiers, and mushers can travel for days without seeing another human soul, where the northern lights dance green and red across starry skies, where glaciers tumble, mountain peaks soar, and tundra shrubs scream scarlet as summer turns to fall. It’s a land of heartrending human stories, too, for the Yukon is home to the Klondike, to which an estimated hundred thousand dreamers and desperadoes—including a young Jack London—once swarmed in search of gold. Bradt’s Yukon is the only guidebook dedicated to this natural and historical wonderland. Offering practical advice on everything from where to pan for gold to how to avoid being eaten by a bear, alongside quirky anecdotes (such as the story behind the “sourtoe cocktail”—a shot of whisky garnished with a severed human toe), it’s the perfect companion for highway drivers, cruise-ship passengers, and outdoors enthusiasts alike.

Paraguay is still largely undiscovered by travelers, but those who make their way here are delighted by the country’s distinctive culture and strong indigenous features. A truly bilingual nation of Latin America, this is a country where Guaraní is spoken alongside Spanish anywhere you may go. Its folk-dance tradition is hugely popular among young people; its harp playing is legendary; and Paraguayans are proud of their different handicrafts, particularly their sewing. The country is also home to the historic Jesuit missions, or reductions (as depicted in the film The Mission).

They won the first soccer World Cup. There’s a lot of beef raised on the pampa. That’s all most people know about Uruguay. Bradt’s Uruguay, the only dedicated English-language guide to this country that’s small yet bursting with character, shows that the adventurous tourist can uncover much more. It provides in-depth coverage of the capital, Montevideo, where the colonial Old City is being restored. There’s also detailed information on the coastal city of Colonia (on UNESCO’s World Heritage List), as well as Punta del Este, to whose beaches the Buenos Aires beautiful crowd flocks each summer. There’s advice, too, for active travelers who can rattle their whips on cattle-ranching estancias and spin their sticks in a game of polo or two, and for nature enthusiasts keen to watch wildlife in the western wetlands and birds in Cabo Polonio and Santa Teresa. The book also investigates the Brazilian influences behind Uruguay’s music and dance, and the country’s Afro-Uruguayan culture, most noticeable in Carnaval.

Bradt’s Paraguay—the only English-language guidebook to this emerging tourism destination—covers the region with unrivalled detail and knowledge. Margaret Hebblethwaite has lived for the last decade in the Paraguayan countryside, where she has set up an educational charity. The book delves deep into a country that has so far eluded the grasp of mass tourism, and where rich indigenous culture and folk traditions still hold strong.

Somebody once said that if you planted a walking stick overnight in the soil of Uganda, it would take root before morning dawned. Of all Africa’s safari destinations, this is the most fertile. It’s also the best destination in Africa for seeing a variety of primate species—visitors can spot more than ten types of monkey, including mountain gorillas and chimpanzees. And if primate enthusiasts are found wandering round with imbecile grins, Uganda’s birds have ornithologists doing cartwheels: more than 1,000 bird species have been recorded here, making Uganda—in practical terms—the finest birdwatching destination in Africa. Moreover, in Uganda’s premier savanna reserves, one can be almost certain of encountering lions, elephants, and buffaloes. Whether visitors want to climb to the snows of the fabled Mountains of the Moon, raft the headwaters of the mighty Nile, or marvel at the legendary tree-climbing lions of Ishasha, this sixth edition of Philip Briggs’s much-praised guide is the most comprehensive resource available.

Covering everything from the best places for borsch to the best walks along the Black Sea—alongside an in-depth exploration of Ukraine’s history, culture and natural beauty—this is the most comprehensive and practical guide available to a destination as yet undiscovered by the tourist crowds.

This fourth edition further strengthens Croatia: The Bradt Travel Guide’s outdoor coverage, including new hikes and information on cycling, national parks, and environmental issues. It has increased coverage of Croatia’s literature and film scenes, and a new section highlighting the sculptures that dot Zagreb, Croatia’s thriving, lively capital.

Bradt’s Estonia remains the only English-language guidebook to this Baltic destination, and this sixth edition reveals more of the country than ever before.

Offering extensive coverage of Estonia’s complex cultural history and its artists, writers, and musicians, alongside comprehensive practical information, Baltic expert Neil Taylor proves that there’s much more to Estonia than the cobbled streets and cafés of Tallinn.

Greece is the cradle of civilization, and the Peloponnese is the cradle of Greece: Olympia is here, so are the mountains of Arcadia and Homer’s Mycenae. But Bradt’s Greek Peloponnese also embraces the living world: the traditional panagyria (village festivals) and the people who still embody the Greek spirit of philoxenia, or hospitality to strangers. It leads travelers to idyllic campsites by ancient theatres; luxurious, boutique hotels; picnic spots in olive groves; buzzing towns and hidden communities. It reveals the best places to eat, hike, kayak, or to spot the famous loggerhead turtle. It’s the best guide to the best of Greece.

Yorkshire is one of only two counties in England blessed with two national parks as well as a heritage coastline and three officially recognized “areas of outstanding natural beauty.” Its manmade heritage is also rich and diverse. Yorkshire is home to many famous castles, well-known abbeys, and country houses and estates. The historical Viking occupation left a lasting legacy in place names, boat design, and a very distinct dialect, especially along the coast and up the Ouse valley.

With increasing airline coverage of Budapest, keen foreign interest in the local property market, a weak currency, and significant recent investment in hotels and other visitor facilities, Hungary’s tourist industry is booming.The first edition of Bradt’s Hungary won the Best Guide Book Award from the British Guild of Travel Writers; this thoroughly updated second edition further strengthens the guide, offering expanded coverage of Lake Balaton (which now has its own airport and is a popular resort destination), new walking trails in the countryside, details of the best thermal baths, information on dental and medical tourism, and much more.

Keen geographers know that Baikal is the world’s largest freshwater lake, and that it’s home to unique species such as the nerpa freshwater seal. But Lake Baikal is much more than a body of water. Here, two cultures—Russian and Mongol—meet. The area is steeped in shamanism and Buddhism, while the lake’s shores are scored by the tracks of the Trans-Siberian Railway. This is the first English-language guide dedicated to Lake Baikal and its surroundings. It provides full coverage of activities, wildlife, culture, and religion, as well as practical information on traveling in this diverse corner of Siberia.

The book covers the country’s dynamic music scene and uncovers little-visited gems such as Dedza and Elephant Marsh. And if visitors must find a luxury lodge on Lake Malawi’s palm-fringed shore on whose deck to sip their sundowners—well, this book tells them how to pull that off, too.

With some 300 days of sunshine a year, Malta has long been known for package holidays. But anyone going to Malta merely to lie in the sun is seriously missing out. Packed into this island nation are 7,000 years of fascinating—and visible—history, and the Bradt guide delves into Malta’s temples and archaeology more comprehensively than any other guidebook. Also covering birdwatching, summer fiestas, the less commercialized islands of Gozo and Comino, and highlighting accommodation and restaurants of interest and character rather than just looking at convenience and budget, this guidebook discovers the Malta beyond the tourist resorts.

“More impressive even than the gorillas’ size and bearing is their unfathomable attitude to their daily human visitors. . . . Almost everybody who visits the gorillas experiences an almost mystical sense of recognition,” writes Philip Briggs in Bradt’s Rwanda of the country’s most popular residents. Fifteen years after the tragic genocide of 1994, Rwanda is rapidly emerging as one of Africa’s most exciting ecotourism destinations, with three diverse national parks. This is the only English-language guidebook dedicated to the country, and this updated fourth edition lists the newest hotels, tours, activities, and operators—and, of course, information on how to track its famous mountain gorillas.

A comprehensive introduction to the best place to watch wildlife in South America, and beautifully illustrated throughout, Bradt’s Pantanal Wildlife is the only portable book to cover all the main wildlife groups while focusing exclusively on the Pantanal.

The RIse and Fall of Communism in Northeastern Montana

THE RED CORNER

BORDER TO BORDER

The Rise and Fall of Communism in Northeastern Montana

Quilts and Quiltmakers of Montana

Verlaine Stoner McDonald 978-0-9759196-7-5 • MARCH 2010 $16.95 US/$21.50 CAN • North America • Paper • 6 x 9 • 220 pp History

The Red Corner chronicles the events of the teens and 1920s that left a permanent mark on northeast Montana. Sheridan County was the site of an armed robbery of $100,000 from the county treasury, a Young Communist camp, an adolescent’s “Bolshevik funeral,” and surveillance by FBI agents who pursued some radical leaders even into the 1960s. The book profiles several influential Communists, including a colorful newspaper editor who was elected state senator and later national chairman of the Farmer Labor Party, and his comrade, the county sheriff, who was allegedly involved in graft, prostitution, and bootlegging. In spite of its notoriety, the farmers’ movement became one of the nation’s most successful rural Communist organizations during the 1920s. By the beginning of the Great Depression decade, however, Communism in northeastern Montana was crippled. The Red Corner details this strange reversal of fortune by examining newspaper accounts, FBI reports, and internal Communist Party files. In doing so it offers unique insights into how political movements arise, sustain themselves, and decline.

Annie Hanshew 978-0-9759196-2-0 • MARCH 2010 $24.95 US/$31.95 CAN • North America • Paper • 9 x 12 • 240 pp 14/CTN • Previous edition: 9/2009; 978-0-917298-64-6 (cloth) • History

For over two decades, volunteers from across Montana registered local quilts as a part of the Montana Historic Quilt Project. The quilts chronicle Montana’s history over the last 150 years, telling the stories of statehood, the struggle for women’s suffrage, two world wars, and the Great Depression, as well as the recent past. This highly illustrated book showcases Montana’s best, most unique, and most interesting quilts and describes the life and times of the extraordinary people who made them. Border to Border: Quilts and Quiltmakers of Montana is an invaluable addition to quilting literature and to Montana history. • Over 150 rich, full-color photography of quilts • Over 50 historical photographs • Authentic, well-researched histories of individual quilts and quiltmakers
