Boone's Lick is Pulitzer Prize-winning author Larry McMurtry's return to the kind of story that made him famous -- an enthralling tale of the nineteenth-century west. Like his bestsellers Lonesome Dove, Streets of Laredo, Comanche Moon, and Dead Man's Walk, Boone's Lick transports the reader to the era about which McMurtry writes better and more shrewdly than anyone else. Told with McMurtry's unique blend of historical fact and sheer storytelling genius, the novel follows the Cecil family's arduous journey by riverboat and wagon from Boone's Lick, Missouri, to Fort Phil Kearny in Wyoming. Fifteen-year-old Shay narrates, describing the journey that begins when his Ma, Mary Margaret, decides to hunt down her elusive husband, Dick, to tell him she's leaving him. Without knowing precisely where he is, they set out across the plains in search of him, encountering grizzly bears, stormy weather, and hostile Indians as they go. With them are Shay's siblings, G.T., Neva, and baby Marcy; Shay's uncle, Seth; his Granpa Crackenthorpe; and Mary Margaret's beautiful half-sister, Rose. During their journey they pick up a barefooted priest named Father Villy, and a Snake Indian named Charlie Seven Days, and persuade them to join in their travels. At the heart of the novel, and the adventure, is Mary Margaret, whom we first meet shooting a sheriff's horse out from underneath him in order to feed her family. Forceful, interesting, and determined, she is written with McMurtry's trademark deftness and sympathy for women, and is in every way a match for the worst the west can muster. Boone's Lick abounds with the incidents, the excitements, and the dangers of life on the plains. Its huge cast of characters includes such historical figures as Wild Bill Hickok and the unfortunate Colonel Fetterman (whose arrogance and ineptitude led to one of the U.S. Army's worst and bloodiest defeats at the hands of the Cheyenne and Sioux) as well as the Cecil family (itself based on a real family of nineteenth-century traders and haulers). The story of their trek in pursuit of Dick, and the discovery of his second and third families, is told with brilliance, humor, and overwhelming joie de vivre in a novel that is at once high adventure, a perfect western tale, and a moving love story -- it is, in short, vintage McMurtry, combining his brilliant character portraits, his unerring sense of the west, and his unrivaled eye for the telling detail. Boone's Lick is one of McMurtry's richest works of fiction to date.

SALT LICK, Vol. I, Celebrate Life, by Dr. Robert A. (Sunny) Brock, was written to four teenage grandsons, teaching moral chastity and ethical respect and responsibility toward the opposite sex. Also, written to teach Christian virtues in a Mark Twain style, life-situation novel. Volume One of this 1835 Historical Christian Romantic Comedy involves eight ORILEY cousins on a whimsical-lark. The cousin clan help protagonists ALI ORILEY and THOMAS ORILEY celebrate life as the cousins accompany Ali in her quest to visit all five of her paternal uncles families. All these first-cousins have never met each other nor their O'Riley kin. The misadventure begins with Alis mothers conniving plan to marry Ali off to the mothers nephew, who will soon graduate West Point, looking for wedding bells on Christmas visit. Ali, a blithe, headstrong, Irish princess, balks at the proposition of being married at age twenty. With the aid of her wanderlust father, Ali covertly plans visiting each of his brothers families prior to nuptials. The object of using many personalities among the Irish cousin-clan is to present every personality, and combination-personality, on the DISC Personality Scale. This Pandora's box of kinfolk shows how each reacts differently in every situation. Each must interact with his peers, both positively and negatively and learn to tolerate and accept one another at face value. Each must contribute both leadership and servant qualities to the solution of life problems in his own unique way. First on Alis list, is the family of UNCLE WES ORILEY, married to the cosmopolitan daughterof a French ambassador. TRUDY ORILEY, raised among highbrow European culture, had brought unique order to the pastoral community of Glasgow, Kentucky. This family is both a little-bit country-bumpkin and a little-bit cultured, making for a comical balance of magical homelife. Since her own childhood had been puritanical and stoic law and order, Ali falls in love with Uncle Wes laid-back family. Prior to leaving on the next leg of her journey, showing off her French cooking skills, learned the prior summer at Columbia University cooking school, Ali feeds the family breakfast. A twisted accident causes her to feed them the famous Flathead Biscuits from Hades, which sets the pace for strange-enough-to-be-true comedy the rest of the book. For protection and assistance, Wess oldest son, THOMAS ORILEY, is appointed to accompany Ali on the rest of her adventure. These two opposite personalities are least likely to strike up a lasting relationship. However, they must learn to compliment each other in order to make the adventure a rewarding experience. On the trail to Louisiana, Davy Crockett crosses their path. Prospects of the 1835 massacre at the Alamo are presented. Uncle RUFUS ORILEYs family habitat in the Gulf Coast swamps of Low Down, Louisiana, introduces snakes, alligators and the plight of the American Indian during Andrew Jacksons presidency. Rufus second oldest son, ELIJAH, and Thomas go through the rites-of-passage together, slaying the swamp-dragon. Rufus older daughter, MAID MARION, and Ali pass through the rites-of-passage, performing one of the oldest female rites known to mankind. Serious life-situations and decisions are presented and dealt with as Rufus oldest son, ZAK, saves Thomas and Elijah from the Caddo Indians. Several sequences clearly illustrate the Christian message as clan members make decisions to rescue each other. Uncle Rufus, preacher, trapper, intellectual, is invited to preach about Satan at snake-handler cult rituals, presenting swamp dwellers culture. A cruel practical joke and comical mix-up sets the stage for Thomas and Elijah to get deserved vengence against WINSTON CHANLIN. A strange turn

Whether humans crossed the seas between the Old World and the New in the times before Columbus is a tantalizing question that has long excited scholarly interest and tempted imaginations the world over. From the myths of Atlantis and Mu to the more credible, perhaps, but hardly less romantic tales of Viking ships and Buddhist missionaries, people have speculated upon what is, after all, not simply a question of contact, but of the nature and growth of civilization itself. To the specialist, it is an important question indeed. If people in the Western Hemisphere and in the Eastern Hemisphere developed their cultures more or less independently from the end of the last Ice Age until the voyages of Columbus, the remarkable similarities between New World and Old World cultures reveal something important about the evolution of culture. If, on the other hand, there were widespread or sustained contacts between the hemispheres in pre-Columbian times, these contacts represent events of vast significance to the prehistory and history of humanity. Originally delivered at a symposium held in May 1968, during the national meeting of the Society for American Archaeology, the papers presented here, by scholars eminent in the field, offer differing points of view and considerable evidence on the pros and cons of pre-Columbian contact between the Old World and the New. Various kinds of data—archaeological, botanical, geographical, and historical—are brought to bear on the problem, with provocative and original results. Introductory and concluding remarks by the editors pull together and evaluate the evidence and suggest ground rules for future studies of this sort. Man across the Sea provides no final answers as to whether people from Asia, Africa, or Europe visited the American Indian before Columbus. It does, however, present new evidence, suggested lines of approach, and a fresh attempt to delineate the problems involved and to establish acceptable canons of evidence for the future.

INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER “Thrilling . . . [told] with gonzo élan . . . When the sommelier and blogger Madeline Puckette writes that this book is the Kitchen Confidential of the wine world, she’s not wrong, though Bill Buford’s Heat is probably a shade closer.” —Jennifer Senior, The New York Times “As informative as it is, well, intoxicating.” —Fortune “A funny, fascinating adventure.” —Real Simple Professional journalist and amateur drinker Bianca Bosker didn’t know much about wine—until she discovered an alternate universe where taste reigns supreme, a world of elite sommeliers who dedicate their lives to the pursuit of flavor. Astounded by their fervor and seemingly superhuman sensory powers, she set out to uncover what drove their obsession, and whether she, too, could become a “cork dork.” With boundless curiousity, humor, and a healthy dose of skepticism, Bosker takes the reader inside underground tasting groups, exclusive New York City restaurants, California mass-market wine factories, and even a neuroscientist’s fMRI machine as she attempts to answer the most nagging question of all: what’s the big deal about wine? What she learns will change the way you drink wine—and, perhaps, the way you live—forever.
