If on leaving a trailhead, you only glance at your watch to have an idea of when you need to be back, parts of this book will be for you. If when crossing a desert valley, you wonder what it is like to run in the silence and solitude way out there, parts of this book will be for you. If wading across a beaver pond during a run seemed the only logical thing to do, parts of this book will be for you. If you ever thought of running fifty miles in one day, parts of this book will be for you. If you sometimes went out after sunset for a run because you saw a cloudless sky and you wanted to run under a visible night sky, parts of this book will be for you. If you need to be out there where running with pauses continues to be just as important as the occasional run with the stopwatch on, then Run Gently Out There is for you. Go along with the author as he takes you on a run that is not about anyone in particular, rather it is about what makes running trails and ultramarathons become a love affair with being out there and how running becomes part of a way of living.

If an animal spoke to you, would you listen? Botanist/psychokinetic Katrina Omstead creates a super hash, a variety of marijuana she calls MAGIC. Before she can share her successful medical findings with the scientific community, she's murdered. There is, however, one witness begging to come forward. Special is Katrina's wolf-hybrid dog. She saw her mistress die. She wants revenge. Now she has to convince food photographer, animal psychic, and Katrina's best friend Wheat Keigwin of the same thing. Together, dog and woman dedicate themselves to solving the mystery behind Katrina's death. An agriculture journalist, Lena Jo McCoy has long admired the works of animal behaviorists Temple Grandin and Cesar Millan, as well as the cattlemen and women she's written about. She enjoys a cutting horse or stock dog competition, finding the connection betweeen man and beast incredible as they work together as one entity. It wasn't until McCoy had a dream about her childhood dog, Special, that she sat down to write a novel.

Shortlisted for the 2015 Thwaites Wainwright prize for nature writing Richard Askwith wanted more. Not convinced running had to be all about pounding pavements, buying fancy kit and racking up extreme challenges, he looked for ways to liberate himself. His solution: running through muddy fields and up rocky fells, running with his dog at dawn, running because he's being (voluntarily) chased by a pack of bloodhounds, running to get hopelessly, enjoyably lost, running fast for the sheer thrill of it. Running as nature intended. Part diary of a year running through the Northamptonshire countryside, part exploration of why we love to run without limits, Running Free is an eloquent and inspiring account of running in a forgotten, rural way, observing wildlife and celebrating the joys of nature. An opponent of the commercialisation of running, Askwith offers a welcome alternative, with practical tips (learned the hard way) on how to both start and keep running naturally – from thawing frozen toes to avoiding a stampede when crossing a field of cows. Running Free is about getting back to the basics of why we love to run.

In a lonely thicket of gorse near the Suffolk coast, a man lies dead on a summers afternoon: Frederick Quennell, amateur yachtsman and head of a successful local firm of printers. Later examining the site, Chief Superintendent Gently (newly married to Gabrielle Orbec, and reluctantly in charge of the investigation) wonders who wanted Quennell dead. There is no shortage of suspects, as the Suffolk police point out. Quennell's neglected wife is deeply in love with an artist - a man moreover, who's been suspected of murder once before. What about Raymond Tallis, who headed the printing firm until Quennell took his place? Tallis's own family affairs are complex: his brother Arthur drowned in a yachting accident, with Tallis and Quennell both on board at the time, and Tallis then married his brother's widow . . . In the tranquil Suffolk countryside, scented with heather and sea-breezes, Gently sets to work to disentangle the emotional bonds - the jealousy, love, hatred, and remorse - that enmesh the dead man's family and friends. And he starts by contemplating not just one previous death, but two . . .

An infant’s death draws a former FBI agent to a strange Southern town in this mystery by an Edgar Award–nominated author. As a hurricane bears down on Bellerton, North Carolina, Zhondra Meyer opens her gates to the townsfolk. Her farm occupies the area’s highest ground, but the locals are wary of accepting her invitation. Zhondra says her camp is nothing more than a retreat for battered women, but the town’s evangelicals believe that her residents are lesbians, occultists, or, worst of all, satanists—a fear seemingly confirmed when an infant is found ritualistically slaughtered. Former FBI agent Gregor Demarkian might have experience solving religious murders, but he’s never dealt with satanism. Invited by his friend David, one of America’s most prominent atheists, to investigate the murder, Gregor keeps an open mind. What he finds in Bellerton shows that even the most pious Christians are capable of hellish deeds.

This report was most important for the opening of travel and settlement in West Texas and New Mexico. By these explorations a supply and potential railroad route was surveyed across West Texas, and this became the main passageway for soldiers, settlers and gold seekers. The surveyors were pleased with what they saw, pointing out the large population which could be supported in the Rio Grande Valley, as well as the strategic importance of El Paso. The Simpson report is one of the first thorough surveys in New Mexico. Related to it are the many handsome plates, as well as one of the maps. The other map shows the routes across Texas. The plates with the Simpson report make it an important American color plate book.

I've read and studied the history of slavery most of my life. I know that there are many who would like to know more about the history of slavery. the inhuman treatment of a people kept in bondage. Writing this book I feel will give those who want to know more, like the younger generation, regardless of their ethnic background to know and understand what slavery was about.

As a Child I heard the many stories of slavery, from my grandparents who learned from their parents about slaves in America. This part of history was not taught in schools, but my novel although a fiction tells the true story of a people that lived in human bondage.
