Following All the Pretty Horses in Cormac McCarthy's Border Trilogy is a novel whose force of language is matched only by its breadth of experience and depth of thought. In the bootheel of New Mexico hard on the frontier, Billy and Boyd Parham are just boys in the years before the Second World War, but on the cusp of unimaginable events. First comes a trespassing Indian and the dream of wolves running wild amongst the cattle lately brought onto the plain by settlers -- this when all the wisdom of trappers has disappeared along with the trappers themselves. And so Billy sets forth at the age of sixteen on an unwitting journey into the souls of boys and animals and men. Having trapped a she-wolf he would restore to the mountains of Mexico, he is long gone and returns to find everything he left behind transformed utterly in his absence. Except his kid brother, Boyd, with whom he strikes out yet again to reclaim what is theirs thus crossing into "that antique gaze from whence there could be no way back forever." An essential novel by any measure, The Crossing is luminous and appalling, a book that touches, stops, and starts the heart and mind at once. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Not to be confused with the famed twentieth-century British prime minister, American author Winston Churchill took as his fictional palette the history of his native country. Following in the tradition of Churchill's other sweeping historical epics, The Crossing is a thrilling account of the settlement of the Western United States, with a particular focus on the rough-and-tumble early years of the territory that would later become Kentucky.

Ranging across artists from Raphael to Rothko, Caravaggio to Pollock, The Crossing of the Visible offers both a critique of contemporary accounts of the visual and a constructive alternative. According to Marion, the proper response to the 'nihilism' of postmodernity is not iconoclasm, but rather a radically iconic account of the visual and the arts which opens them to the invisible.

Three sisters bound by something more powerful than blood---a secret as deep as the ocean. Once a maid, Hannah is now engaged to a talented painter. But although both were born mer, Stannish has severed ties to the sea and insists that Hannah do the same. Torn between love and the Laws of Salt, Hannah must make a choice that can only lead to heartbreak. Lucy grew up longing to swim, but her mother believed that girls belonged in the drawing room, not the ocean, and took drastic measures to keep Lucy's identity a secret. Now it's up to Lucy's sisters to save her, before she succumbs to landsickness . . . or the executioner's noose. After a lonely childhood, May suddenly found everything she'd ever wanted. But now with Hannah pulling away and Lucy sentenced to die, May's world is falling apart. Is she destined to lose her sisters all over again? This conclusion is as beautiful and dangerous as the sea itself. Fans of Downton Abbey will delight in the Edwardian splendor, and all readers will be swept away by a tide of magic and romance.

In the autumn of 2002 and at the tender age of 47, I set off alone on a bicycle intending to ride across the USA. From San Diego, California I rode 3,112 miles to arrive 72 days later in St. Augustine, on the Atlantic coast of Florida. Usually, I camped or slept rough in the deserts and mountains, exploring the back roads and delighting in the magnificent solitude and wild empty spaces. This is a book about traveling alone by bicycle. It is not a how-to-do-it manual or a travel guide but a story of pure adventure; a story born out of frustration and middle-aged dread, written by someone whose value set may now be a little different from yours. It is an account of a journey; one that will appeal to anyone of a certain age who has ever said 'I wish'. Every word of it is true.

Among the group of physics honors students huddled in 1957 on a Colorado mountain watching Sputnik bisect the heavens, one young scientist was destined, three short years later, to become a key player in America’s own top-secret spy satellite program. One of our era’s most prolific mathematicians, Karl Gustafson was given just two weeks to write the first US spy satellite’s software. The project would fundamentally alter America’s Cold War strategy, and this autobiographical account of a remarkable academic life spent in the top flight tells this fascinating inside story for the first time. Gustafson takes you from his early pioneering work in computing, through fascinating encounters with Nobel laureates and Fields medalists, to his current observations on mathematics, science and life. He tells of brushes with death, being struck by lightning, and the beautiful women who have been a part of his journey.
