This account of how one of America’s most beautiful golf resorts came to be is “a narrative gem” (James Dodson). On a wild, windblown bluff high above the Pacific sits one of America’s premier golfing destinations, Bandon Dunes. Golf enthusiast Mike Keiser had the dream of building this British-style “links” course on a stretch of Oregon’s rugged coast—and Dream Golf is the first all-inclusive account of how he turned his passion into reality. This revised and expanded edition takes another look at Bandon Dunes and introduces readers to Old Macdonald, a new course that provides golfers with a more rugged, untamed version of the game, named in honor of Charles Blair Macdonald (1856–1939), the father of American golf course architecture and one of the founders of the US Golf Association. This fourth course, designed by renowned golf course architect Tom Doak along with Jim Urbina, brings visitors back to the true origins of the sport—and Dream Golf is a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at how this special spot became a destination for golfers everywhere.

A spiritual journey, a lush travelogue, a parable of sports and philosophy—John Updike called this unique novel “a golf classic if any exists in our day.” When an American traveler on his way to India stops to play a round on one of the most beautiful and legendary golf courses in Scotland, he doesn’t know that his game—and his life—are about to change forever. He is introduced to Shivas Irons, a mysterious golf pro whose sublime insights stick with him long after the eighteenth hole. From the first swing of the Scotsman’s club, he realizes he is in for a most extraordinary day. By turns comic, existential, and semiautobiographical, Michael Murphy’s tale traces the arc of twenty-four hours, from a round of golf on the Links of Burningbush to a night fueled by whiskey, wisdom, and wandering—even a sighting of Seamus MacDuff, the holy man who haunts the hole they call Lucifer’s Rug. “Murphy’s book is going to alter many visions,” The New York Times Book Review declared. More than an unforgettable approach to one of the world’s most popular sports, Golf in the Kingdom is a meditation on the power of a game to transform the self.

A “vividly detailed” memoir of traveling to the formerly forbidden country and exploring life and culture in Hanoi (Kirkus Reviews). For years after the Vietnam War, Americans were unable to visit the country, but once tourist visas became available, young Dana Sachs eagerly applied. Born in the early 1960s, she had little memory of the war and its history, but yearned to know more about this Southeast Asian nation, with its odd mix of capitalism and communism and its streets crowded with bicycles. In this unusual travel memoir, she recounts arriving as a backpacker in the late 1980s; moving in with a family and earning her keep by teaching English; encountering a salesman offering remains of American “poes and meeas”—which she finally recognizes as “POWs and MIAs”—and falling for a motorcycle mechanic named Phai. The House on Dream Street is a warm, witty portrait of a country on the cusp of change—and of a woman learning to know her own heart. “Engrossing . . . Sachs bravely renders Vietnam through fresh eyes.” —Publishers Weekly

On a bone-chilling New Year's Day, when all the mountain roads are slick with ice, Clay's mother, Anneth, insists on leaving her husband. She packs her things, and with three-year-old Clay in tow, they inch their way toward her hometown along the treacherous mountain roads. That journey ends in the death of Clay's mother. It's a day that comes to haunt her only son, who's left without a family and a history. This is the story of how Clay Sizemore, a coal miner in love with his town but unsure of his place within it, finds a family to call his own. And it's the story of the people who become part of the life he shapes: Aunt Easter, always filled with a sense of foreboding and bound to her faith above all; Uncle Paul, quietly producing quilt after quilt; Dreama, beautiful and flighty; Evangeline, the untameable daughter of a famous gospel singer; and Alma, the fiddler whose song wends its way into Clay's heart. Together, they all help Clay to fashion a quilt of a life from what treasured pieces are around him. Authentic and moving, Clay's Quilt is both the story of a young man's journey and of Appalachian people struggling to hold on to their heritage.
