• Description : Excerpt from The Ragged Edge: A Tale of Ward Life Politics "Arrah, me jewel, sure, Larry's the boy!"-Old Song. Weary horses dragged ponderous trucks homeward; the drivers drooped upon their high seats and thought of cans of beer; a red sun threw shafts of light along the cross-town streets and between the rows of black warehouses. The porters had all gone for the night from Mason & Sons, and young Mason stood upon the office step, about to lock the door, when Kerrigan jumped from a passing car and hailed him. "I just happened to notice you as I was going by," Kerrigan said; "and that reminded me that I wanted to speak to you." "Come in and sit down," said Mason, leading the way into the office.

• Description : “Much more than a coming-of-age story, Badluck Way is an important meditation on what it means to share space and breathe the same air as truly wild animals, and the necessary damage that can occur when boundaries are crossed” (Tom Groneberg, author of The Secret Life of Cowboys). In this gripping memoir of a young man, a wolf, their parallel lives and ultimate collision, Bryce Andrews describes life on the remote, windswept Sun Ranch in southwest Montana. The Sun’s twenty thousand acres of rangeland occupy a still-wild corner of southwest Montana—a high valley surrounded by mountain ranges and steep creeks with portentous names like Grizzly and Bad Luck. Just over the border from Yellowstone National Park, the Sun holds giant herds of cattle and elk amid many predators—bears, mountain lions, and wolves. In lyrical, haunting language, Andrews recounts marathon days and nights of building fences, riding, roping, and otherwise learning the hard business of caring for cattle, an initiation that changes him from an idealistic city kid into a skilled ranch hand. But when wolves suddenly begin killing the ranch’s cattle, Andrews has to shoulder a rifle, chase the pack, and do what he’d hoped he would never have to do. Called “an elegant memoir” by the Great Falls Tribune, Badluck Way is about transformation and complications, about living with dirty hands every day. It is about the hard choices that wake us at night and take a lifetime to reconcile. Above all, Badluck Way celebrates the breathtaking beauty of wilderness and the satisfaction of hard work on some of the harshest, most beautiful land in the world.

• Description : By the author of Planetwalker, The Ragged Edge of Silence takes us to another level of appreciating, through silence, the beauty of the planet and our place in it. John Francis's real and compelling prose forms a tapestry of questions and answers woven from interviews, stories, personal experience, science, and the power of silence through history, including practice by Native American, Hindu, and Buddhist cultures. Through their time-honored traditions and his own experience of communicating silently for 17 years, Francis's practical exercises lay the groundwork for the reader to build constructive silence into everyday life: to learn more about oneself, to set goals and accomplish dreams, to build strong relationships, and to appreciate and be a steward of the Earth. With its amazing human interest element and first-person expertise, this book is energizing and universally instructive. [...] by Publisher : 'National Geographic Books'

• Description : "Mutt" is all about the journey rather than the goal to find an elusive little village. The stories focus on people, places and the events that took place along the way - seasoned with short travelogues for the full effect of travel - in a region struggling to find its' own place in new Europe. If a paragraph could sum up the value of travel in a few short sentences, I would qualify this one from one of my stories called "Vladimir of L'viv." "These six days in Ukraine were among the most memorable and precious moments in my entire life. I've had great experiences in many countries around the world, but the kindness thrust my way by Vladimir, Dariya, Marian, Marianne and of course Miroslav, would remain etched in my memory forever. If grandfather were alive, he too would be proud and likely boast, 'Of course, what did you expect? We are Ukrainian, the greatest people in the world!' 'Da,' I would say in agreement and this time, not just to please him. I climbed into the wagon and searched for my seat, praying to my god the compartment was not full this night, just to get a little sleep. Oh my God! It was a first-class single bed cabin. My god must be Eastern European because my guardian angels certainly were." [...] by Publisher : 'AuthorHouse'

• Description : At a time when the United States debates how deeply to involve itself in Iraq and Syria, Lt. Col. Michael Zacchea, USMC (ret.), holds a unique vantage point on our still-ongoing war. Deployed to Iraq in March 2004, his team's mission was to build, train, and lead in combat the first Iraqi army battalion trained by the US military. Zacchea tells a deeply personal and powerful story while shedding light on the dangerous pitfalls of training foreign troops to fight murderous insurgents. The Ragged Edge is the first American military memoir out of Iraq or Syria that features complex Arab and Kurdish characters and that intimately explores their culture and politics in a dispassionate way. Zacchea's invaluable lessons about Americans working with Arabs and Kurds to fight insurgency and terrorism come precisely when such wartime collaboration is happening more than at any time in US history.
