From legendary Western author Max Brand comes a tale of covert espionage, gold, and a mysterious figure on horseback. In this dramatic and strange story, Lefty Bill Ranger, an Alaskan mail carrier, travels to Circle City through a terrific snowstorm.

Culture of Peace: God's Vision For The Church by Alan Kreider (Good Books) 4.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 57 minutes ago

Why is peace such a divisive issue, even among Christians? Why is it so hard to practice right here right now? Why is peace often considered an extra, rather than an essential, to faithful Christian living? The three authors decided to write this book when the Indonesian member of the team remarked to the other two: "If the Christian church is to make any impact on Indonesia, it must address itself to the biggest peace issue -- reconciliation with Muslims." But before the writers could honestly consider that explosive possibility, they first had to ask why Christians find it so difficult to live peaceably with other Christians. They've discovered that conflict is often a prerequisite of peace. They grant that peace is a continuum -- easier to live in some areas of life than in others. They've learned that peace has two parents -- hard work and grace. Living in peace is muscular activity. The authors suggest how to develop "peacemaking reflexes"; how churches "can learn to handle ...

Leicester City: The Immortals: The Inside Story of England's Most Unlikely Champions by Harry Harris (Skyhorse) 4.2 Stars (7 Reviews)    Price verified one hour ago

The Immortals is the fairy-tale account of Leicester City, who rose from the very bottom of the English Premier League—the world's toughest soccer league—to triumph against all odds (5,000–1) and finish as champions. Ending up in League One (third level) for the first time in 2008–09, the team stormed through the season to win the league and was promoted back up to the League Championship (second league). After four seasons as a middle-of-the-pack team, Leicester won the league in 2013–14, being promoted to the EPL for the first time in a decade.

Through interviews with the creators of landmark shows, author Allan Neuwirth traces that history, revealing how the upheaval of the 1960s led to edgier fare such as The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour; how counterculture baby boomers made Saturday Night Live-style satire possible; how stand-up comedians changed the sitcom landscape; how UPN and the WB raised eyebrows with comedies aimed at minorities; and much more.

Central Market, just off the main square in the city of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, is the oldest continually operating farmer's market in the US. It absolutely bursts with life every Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday of the year, when it throws open its doors to its loyal shoppers. The stand holders are a mix of local organic farmers, truck-patch gardeners, bakers, butchers, cheese-makers, and cooks from local kitchens who bring their fully prepared foods to sell. Twenty-five years ago, a second-generation stand holder began writing down favorite recipes of the food she sold. She urged other stand holders to do the same (many did not cook from written recipes), and they brought together three hundred of their very best dishes. The collection became The Central Market Cookbook, and it sold wildly. New York Times–bestselling cookbook author Phyllis Good, who shops every week at Central Market, is the author of the cherished, and now updated, Lancaster Central Market Cookbook, 25th ...

His winning percentage was well above Jordan's shooting average or Woods's domination of golf tournaments. And he sold products and drew spectators like no one had ever done. He was hands-down the most famous athlete in America's most popular spectator sport, and exactly one hundred years ago you would have been hard pressed to find anybody in the country who didn't know his name. He was Dan Patch, and he was a racehorse. At the turn of the last century, harness racing drew larger crowds and offered bigger paychecks than any other sport. Its stars were household names, and Dan Patch was both the most celebrated and the richest.

Roughing It by Mark Twain (Skyhorse) 4.2 Stars (372 Reviews)    Price verified 4 hours ago

Originally published over one hundred years ago, Roughing It tells the (almost) true story of Mark Twain's rollicking adventures across the United States. A hilarious account of how the author tried finding wealth in the rocks of Nevada, it was published before his most famous works and shows why he would grow to become one of the most beloved American writers of all time. The story follows many of Twain's early adventures, including a visit to Salt Lake City, gold and silver prospecting, real estate speculation, a journey to the Kingdom of Hawaii, and his beginnings as a writer. Through his attempts to strike it rich, he meets a motley crew of colorful people, while weaving through humorous mishaps and standing through it all with the endearingly good humor for which he's famous. The memoir showcases Twain's razor-sharp wit (as well as a healthy imagination), which would later become his trademark style in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, and A ...

There were plenty of players in the early struggle for dominance of North America - Spain, France, England, and mostly forgotten today, although with a legacy in the place names of towns and creeks, Holland. The Dutch purchased Manhattan from the Indians in 1626 (that famous twenty-four dollar price tag,) and gave it up to the Brits in 1664. In between, the Dutch settled the Hudson Valley from New Amsterdam (today's Lower Manhattan) to Albany. North of Albany were some few scattered outposts, most notably Saratoga and Schenectady, but mostly it was wilderness, a vast no-man's land separating the dominant North American empires, the English and the French. Those two European powers would engage in a hundred-year struggle for control of the continent. With unimaginable courage, some few men dared venture into the forests where the dangers were abundant - wolves, snakes, and most terrifyingly, the Stone Age Indians, fighting with a savage cruelty to keep what had been theirs since the ...
