"A Little Curlew Press Trade Paperback."
A lyrical journey down some of America s greatest rivers by one of the first women river guides in the West.
Southern writer Casey Clabough revisits the hardscrabble life of ancestor Columbus Clabough: the last of his family to live by the old Smoky Mountain ways -- ways unsuited to a modern world. In the wake of run-ins with bootleggers and Overhill Cherokee, Columbus departs to serve his country in World War I, only to return and find the mountains and himself afflicted by ravages not unlike those witnessed overseas. Bringing us into a vanished world of red wolves, chestnuts, and human way of life long forgotten, Clabough offers a powerful narrative that captures the life of his great uncle -- a life so strongly linked to the land that it reflects the changes and sufferings of the mountains. A portion of proceeds from the sale of this book will go towards The American Chestnut Foundation. IN PRAISE OF The End of the Mountains: "The End of the Mountains is a powerful, lyrical, haunting account of the lives of mountain people who survive on the threshold between a timeless wilderness and the encroaching pressures of modernity. . . By turns reminiscent of the work of William Faulkner, James Dickey, and Cormac McCarthy." -- Michael P. Branch, author of Raising Wild and Rants from the Hill.
The polarizing literary debut by Scottish author Ian Banks, The Wasp Factory is the bizarre, imaginative, disturbing, and darkly comic look into the mind of a child psychopath. Meet Frank Cauldhame. Just sixteen, and unconventional to say the least: Two years after I killed Blyth I murdered my young brother Paul, for quite different and more fundamental reasons than I'd disposed of Blyth, and then a year after that I did for my young cousin Esmerelda, more or less on a whim. That's my score to date. Three. I haven't killed anybody for years, and don't intend to ever again. It was just a stage I was going through.
'But enough about me, ' writes Catherine Sevenau in Queen Bee. Yet we never can get enough of her reminisces, or of the center of her universe, a place she reminds us looks a lot like ours. There are the allowed blunders, the disallowed double-crosses, the mistakes she's turned to pure gold, the family history she views from fresh perspectives to make sense of it. Write on, Ms. Sevenau, you're tending a rich, rich hive. --Rebecca Lawton, author of Steelies and Other Endangered Species, Reading Water, and Junction, Utah Whenever Catherine Sevenau writes, she invariably shoots from the hip. The irony is that she nearly always hits the mark and leaves her reader nodding and saying yes, yes, yes. --Andy Weinberger, owner of Readers' Books, Sonoma, CA Catherine Sevenau is an opener of doors, irreverent teller of tales, and family scribe. Her first book, Passages from Behind These Doors, A Family Memoir, sets the pace for Queen Bee, Reflections on Life and Other Rude Awakenings. These 88 stories include posts from her blog, stories from her heart, and musings from her past. Join her on this roller coaster journey of reflections, as life, with its continual barrage of rude awakenings, is always a ride!
Jack Reacher finds trouble in Texas in the fifth novel in Lee Child’s New York Times bestselling series. Thumbing across the scorched Texas desert, Jack Reacher has nowhere to go and all the time in the world to get there. Cruising the same stretch of two-lane blacktop is Carmen Greer. For Reacher, the lift comes with a hitch. Carmen’s got a wild story to tell—all about her husband, her family secrets, and a hometown that’s purely gothic. She’s also got a plan. Reacher’s part of it. And before the sun sets, this ride could cost them both their lives.
Warning: this description has not been authorized by Pseudonymous Bosch. As much as he'd love to sing the praises of his book (he is very vain), he wouldn't want you to hear about his brave 11-year old heroes, Cass and Max-Ernest. Or about how a mysterious box of vials, the Symphony of Smells, sends them on the trail of a magician who has vanished under strange (and stinky) circumstances. And he certainly wouldn't want you to know about the hair-raising adventures that follow and the nefarious villains they face. You see, not only is the name of this book secret, the story inside is, too. For it concerns a secret. A Big Secret.
