* A well-loved, classic tale of adventure * Read this and you'll find yourself recommending it to friends again and again This is the story of Barbara and Larry Savage's sometimes dangerous, often zany, but ultimately rewarding 23,000 miles global bicycle odyssey, which took them through 25 countries in two years. Miles From Nowhere is an adventure not to be missed! Along the way, these near-neophyte cyclists encountered warm-hearted strangers eager to share food and shelter, bicycle-hating drivers who shoved them off the road, various wild animals (including a roof ape and an attack camel), sacred cows, rock-throwing Egyptians, overprotective Thai policeman, motherly New Zealanders, meteorological disasters, bodily indignities, and great personal joys. The stress of traveling together constantly for two years tested and ultimately strengthened the young couple's relationship. As their trip ends you'll find yourself yearning for Barbara and Larry to mount back up and keep pedaling. It's a story that makes you feel like you've grown right along with the author.

Joon is a young Korean immigrant living in the Bronx of the 1980s. Her parents have crumbled under the weight of her father's infidelity and mental illness has rendered her mother nearly catatonic. So Joon, at the age of thirteen, decides she's better off on her own and sets out on a harrowing and sometimes tragic journey, exposing herself to all the pain and difficulty of a life lived on the margins. Joon's years on the streets take her from a homeless shelter to an escort club, through struggles with addiction, to jobs selling newspapers and cosmetics, committing petty crimes, and, finally, towards something resembling hope. In raw and beautiful prose, Nami Mun tells the story of a young woman who is at once tough yet vulnerable, world-weary yet naive, faced with insurmountable odds and yet fiercely determined to survive. Honest, inventive and profoundly moving, Miles From Nowhere is a dazzling debut novel that will haunt and inspire.

"In this splendid book a gifted observer and a terrific idea have come together in a real love match. In 1990, a century after the census bureau's famous observation of the frontier's imminent end, Dayton Duncan set out in an aging GMC Suburban to visit a large sampling of counties outside Alaska that have fewer than two persons per square milethe bureau's old standard for places still in a frontier condition. There are 132 such counties. All are in the West. . . . The result of his tour is an insightful and entertaining book, troubling and funny and consistently illuminating. . . . Much of the book's charm comes from Duncan's sketches of people who choose to live 'miles from nowhere'ranchers in the Nebraska sandhills, a New Mexican bar owner, a priest and United Parcel Service driver along the Texas-Mexico border, and the descendant of a Seminole Negro army scout in west Texas. In them he finds characteristics associated with the mythic frontier. . . . Great fun to read."Montana Born and raised in a small town in Iowa, Dayton Duncan has been a reporter, humor columnist, editorial writer, chief of staff to a governor, and deputy press secretary for presidential campaigns. He lives in Walpole, New Hampshire. His books include Out West: An American Journey, also available in a Bison Books edition.

This is my true story. I was raised in a strict Christian home and could never measure up to those standards. Feeling rejected I returned to the world of alcohol and drug abuse. I ended up in a life of crime, lived in a realm of a very destructive lifestyle. I was the true architect of my own destruction, I hated myself and the world around me. I attempted suicide many times as a way to escape the world that I was living in. I have been married several times and have had dozens of relationships, and have destroyed people along the way. I have recently been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, and that added another a different layer for me to get through. It has not been an easy road for me to travel down and I know that there are many others out there who are suffering and hurting. I wrote this book for those very people in hopes and the belief that this book will help them start a new path in life.

A Virginia Book Award Finalist "A beautiful, haunting novel."--Tom Franklin "John Gregory Brown is a writer I've long admired, and this new novel is his best book yet. A Thousand Miles from Nowhere is a marvelous depiction of one man's stumbling journey from despair toward a hard-won redemption."--Ron Rash "You have lost everything, yes?" Everything? Henry thought; he considered the word. Had he lost everything? Fleeing New Orleans as Hurricane Katrina approaches, Henry Garrett is haunted by the ruins of his marriage, a squandered inheritance, and the teaching job he inexplicably quit. He pulls into a small Virginia town after three days on the road, hoping to silence the ceaseless clamor in his head. But this quest for peace and quiet as the only guest at a roadside motel is destroyed when Henry finds himself at the center of a bizarre and violent tragedy. As a result, Henry winds up stranded at the ramshackle motel just outside the small town of Marimore, and it's there that he is pulled into the lives of those around him: Latangi, the motel's recently widowed proprietor, who seems to have a plan for Henry; Marge, a local secretary who marshals the collective energy of her women's church group; and the family of an old man, a prisoner, who dies in a desperate effort to provide for his infirm wife. For his previous novels John Gregory Brown has been lauded for his "compassionate vision of human destiny" as well as his "melodic, haunting, and rhythmic prose." With A THOUSAND MILES FROM NOWHERE, he assumes his place in the tradition of such masterful storytellers as Flannery O'Connor and Walker Percy, offering to readers a tragicomic tour de force about the power of art and compassion and one man's search for faith, love, and redemption.

Hundred Miles to Nowhere: An Unlikely Love Story explores what happens when a singer-songwriter moves from New York City to rural Minnesota for love, and finds there's more to life than music. When Elisa Korenne took a month's break from New York City to be the resident singer-songwriter in middle-of-nowhere Minnesota, she didn't intend to stay. Then she fell in love with the local outdoorsman/insurance guy. One cross-country romance later, Elisa gave up subways, theater, City Bakery cookies, and her Brooklyn apartment to become the 1,153rd resident of New York Mills, a rural town ninety miles from the nearest metropolitan area, Fargo. She had to resort to moonshine to stay sane. The barista knew her weekend plans before she did. The postmaster set up gigs for her behind her back. Chris expected her to eat roadkill for dinner. And you wouldn't believe the uproar when the Finnish Lutherans in town learned she was Jewish. Despite a gun-toting Millenialist neighbor and the furnace dying at twenty-six below, Elisa moved to Minnesota and married Chris anyway. Then a tornado threatens to destroy the home she had finally made for herself. Hundred Miles to Nowhere is A Year in Provence for the Prairie Home Companion crowd, or Coop for fans of indie music.

TWO ESCAPING THE LAST BATTLE Is a dramatic, true story about two Berliner girls, my girl friend and I, who escaped on April 22, 1945, at 11:30 AM, just in time to avoid the cruelty and raping by Russian Soldiers. One-day later Russian soldiers entered my grandparent's home. This story is dramatic and encounters danger, wit, ingenuity, comedy, love, and disappointment. The dialog, dispersed with a German accent, is as close to the native speech as possible. This is a great story; there was suspense almost every day. People who read my rough draft could not put it down. Their comment was that it would make a great movie. My girl friend and I prayed many times to the lord, and He must have heard us because here I am writing this story.

Growing up thirty-one miles from nowhere in the sparse country of Western Kansas is challenge enough...but add the years 1940 to the early 1960s, a house full of independent, rowdy kids, a mother who teaches one room country schools and a father that scrapes out a career in's all bound to collide in an unpredictable life. Written with reference from an armload of diaries and a heritage rich in hard work, struggle and humor, we relive the times of a family growing up determined to survive. As a first-time author, Twila Tuttle Blakely has shared the resilience of a family who met everyday life head-on. Having parents who grew up in the early 1900s with no modern conveniences (running water, electricity, inside bathrooms, phones, or vehicles) created tough individuals. The lack of these same "modern conveniences" carried over into the first several years of their married life, with the exception of a vehicle, as their family grew to nine children, seven who survived to adulthood. Life was made interesting with a dirt floor, glass cloth windows, farming chores, pet skunks, a variety of different high schools...and even a Haunted House. Entertainment in the boonies was created by the vivid imagination of the four boys and three girls...often at each other's expense...but there was always "pay back" time. Hard times and tragedies were faced with a faith in God and the support of each other. Written in a rather whimsical way, the author has created moments that will make you smile often, tear up, and relive your own treasured memories. "Twila Tuttle Blakely's charming and thoughtful memoir took me down my own memory lane and reminded me of the incredible importance of telling our stories. THIRTY-ONE MILES FROM NOWHERE is filled with genuine humor, profound insights, and slice-of-life moments that bring a tear to the eye and joy to the heart. I loved this book!" -- Deborah Raney, author of THE FACE OF THE EARTH and the Chicory Inn Novels series

This book was inspired by stories about the life of Bass Reeves, a Deputy U.S. Marshal appointed by the court of Judge Isaac C. Parker. Although he was by all accounts an outstanding marshal, Bass Reeves remained somewhat undiscovered. There were several books written about Bass Reeves, which are detailed in the introduction of this book, but Bass never achieved the fame of marshals like Wyatt Earp. Even though this book is mostly a work of fiction, it is hoped this book will help gain Bass Reeves the attention he deserves. On May 26th, 2012, a monument will be dedicated to Bass Reeves near the site of the new U.S. Marshal's Museum in Fort Smith, Arkansas. Ten per cent of the proceeds of this book will be donated to that museum. Five per cent of the proceeds of this book will be donated to the monument fund. On the 10th day of May, 1875, Judge Isaac C. Parker presided over the court in Fort Smith for the first time. His court has been referred to as the greatest criminal court on earth. His court inspired the writing of the history of his court called ""Hell on the Border."" Many of the events depicted in this book were inspired by that book. But this book is not about Judge Parker's court. This book is about the marshals who risked their lives to clean up Indian Territory; which harbored some of the worst criminals ever depicted, most of whom were white men.

2004 Washington State Book Award Finalist "Company town." The words evoke images of rough-and-tumble loggers and gritty miners, of dreary shacks in isolated villages, of wages paid in scrip good only at price-gouging company stores, of paternalistic employers. But these stereotypes are outdated, especially for those company towns that flourished well into the twentieth century. In Company Towns of the Pacific Northwest, Linda Carlson provides a more balanced and realistic look at these "intentional communities." Drawing from residents� reminiscences, contemporary newspaper accounts, company newsletters and histories, census and school records, and site plans, Carlson looks at towns in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho. She examines how companies went about controlling housing, religion, taxes, liquor, prostitution, and union organizers. This vibrant history gives the details of daily life in communities that were often remote and subject to severe weather. It looks at the tragedies and celebrations: sawmill accidents, mine cave-ins, and avalanches as well as Independence Day picnics, school graduations, and Christmas parties. Finally, it tells what happened when people left--when they lost their jobs, when the family breadwinner died or was disabled, when the mill closed. An ample selection of illustrations, most never previously published, broadens the appeal of this lively and well-researched book.
