The Tribe Of Seven Hawks Dancing from the Author: Alex Stoffel. Book II of the SEVEN-HAWKS-DANCING Trilogy. The Sioux are getting restless over in the Black Hills, and the white population is uneasy. The army is alert. Then two herds of government-allocated cattle intended for the Northern Cheyenne are missing. So are more than 20 young warriors sent to bring them to the people gathered on the reservation between the Rosebud and the tongue. Without the cattle, the people will starve—or maybe take by force that which is neccesary to survive. Two brothers, one Cheyenne (a Warchief named Bear-That-Walks-The-Sky) and the other white (named Jed who is also a deadly gunman called the Breed), must deal with the mystery before the Northern Plains again run red with blood. In the midst of this, Jed must settle some things, and help the woman he has chosen for his life to recover from injuries received in the tale told in Book I.

The Cactus Valley Boarding School from the Author: Sandra Joy. Kathlyn Farrel had never been away from home without her parents for more than a weekend, much less out of the country. So you can imagine her shock when her parents announce that they have decided to send her to boarding school in Dallas for a year. Her parents were both hard working people and hardly ever home, and with her brother in college, they had thought it best to send her to boarding school. The only good thing is, all three of her best friends are going, too. Once there, it doesn't take long to get into tons of trouble. Being accused of theft, and having a frustrating and impossible crush on the main handyman, who doesn't seem to be much of a handyman, doesn't make life any easier. Will Kathlyn's stubborn determination to catch the thief (on her own, if no one'll help her), get her expelled? Or worse, break her friendship with her three best friends? Follow Kathlyn as she proves to everyone that she's innocent. Once more, she learns to trust, and she learns that not everyone is out to get her, as she was starting to believe. And she once again learns to be her own joyful self again.

The Art Of Fermentation from the Author: Sandor Ellix Katz. Winner of the 2013 James Beard Foundation Book Award for Reference and Scholarship, and a New York Times bestseller, The Art of Fermentation is the most comprehensive guide to do-it-yourself home fermentation ever published. Sandor Katz presents the concepts and processes behind fermentation in ways that are simple enough to guide a reader through their first experience making sauerkraut or yogurt, and in-depth enough to provide greater understanding and insight for experienced practitioners. While Katz expertly contextualizes fermentation in terms of biological and cultural evolution, health and nutrition, and even economics, this is primarily a compendium of practical information--how the processes work; parameters for safety; techniques for effective preservation; troubleshooting; and more. With two-color illustrations and extended resources, this book provides essential wisdom for cooks, homesteaders, farmers, gleaners, foragers, and food lovers of any kind who want to develop a deeper understanding and appreciation for arguably the oldest form of food preservation, and part of the roots of culture itself. Readers will find detailed information on fermenting vegetables; sugars into alcohol (meads, wines, and ciders); sour tonic beverages; milk; grains and starchy tubers; beers (and other grain-based alcoholic beverages); beans; seeds; nuts; fish; meat; and eggs, as well as growing mold cultures, using fermentation in agriculture, art, and energy production, and considerations for commercial enterprises. Sandor Katz has introduced what will undoubtedly remain a classic in food literature, and is the first--and only--of its kind.

Time Of Grace from the Author: Ken Lamberton. ÒI hole up in my own cozy cubicle and write, considering ways to make the approaching Thanksgiving holiday not just another day in this place. In prison, hope faces east; time is measured in wake-ups.Ó Time of Grace is a remarkable book, written with great eloquence by a former science teacher who was incarcerated for twelve years for his sexual liaison with a teenage student. Far more than a Òprison memoir,Ó it is an intimate and revealing look at relationshipsÑwith fellow humans and with the surprising wildlife of the Sonoran Desert, both inside and beyond prison walls. Throughout, Ken Lamberton reflects on human relations as they mimic and defy those of the natural world, whose rhythms calibrate LambertonÕs days and years behind bars. He writes with candor about his life, while observing desert flora and fauna with the insight and enthusiasm of a professional naturalist. While he studies a tarantula digging her way out of the packed earth and observes Mexican freetail bats sailing into the evening sky, Lamberton ruminates on his crime and on the wrenching effects it has had on his wife and three daughters. He writes of his connections with his fellow inmatesÑsome of whom he teaches in prison classesÑand with the guards who control them, sometimes with inexplicable cruelty. And he unflinchingly describes a prison system that has gone horribly wrongÑa system entrapped in a self-created web of secrecy, fear, and lies. This is the final book of LambertonÕs trilogy about the twelve years he spent in prison. Readers of his earlier books will savor this last volume. Those who are only now discovering LambertonÕs distinctive voiceÑpart poet, part scientist, part teacher, and always deeply, achingly humanÑwill feel as if they are making a new friend. Gripping, sobering, and beautifully written, LambertonÕs memoir is an unforgettable exploration of crime, punishment, and the power of the human spirit.
