A one-of-a-kind, fully-illustrated debut novel about one rest- less and curious young man’s summer spent in a small North Dakota town—a meditation on a time in life when you don’t so much unfold the map as start to draw it. As written and painted by Jonathan Twingley, this beautifully illustrated semi-autobiographical novel is a paean to the America that Jack Kerouac explored and Joseph Mitchell and Walt Whitman celebrated. Set in a small town nestled in the badlands of North Dakota, this coming-of-age novel paints a loving portrait of oddball characters, the down-and-out, the ordinary, the outcasts, and the oft-ignored. Jonny is a dreamer, content wherever he is, as long as he has his sketchpad, paints, and paintbrushes. After a year in New York City attending art school, he escapes to the wide-open oasis of North Dakota. Jonny’s home-away-from-home is The Badlands Saloon, the local watering hole. There, he meets Willie Beck, the hyperactive elderly man who doesn’t seem to talk so much as explode into speech; Jimmy Threepence, who likes to sing old English songs at the top of his lungs; Boochie, a convicted murderer; and Lacy, a Native American woman who is an intoxicating free spirit. Though Jonny spends his nights in the Saloon, he spends his days riding his bike through the local hills and sketching the tourists. Featuring eye-catching full-color illustrations that bring to life the novel’s landscape and characters, The Badlands Saloon is a unique American novel.

One hundred and eighty years after Lewis and Clark's ?Voyage of Discovery? (1804?1806), Dayton Duncan set out in a Volkswagen camper to retrace their steps. Out West is an account of three separate journeys: Lewis and Clark's epic adventure through uncharted wilderness; Duncan's retracing of the historic trail, now in various ways tamed, paved, and settled; and the journey of the American West in the years in between. Readers traveling with Duncan will encounter the people who inhabit today's West: farmers and ranchers, cowboys and mountain men, Native Americans, residents of dying small towns, city dwellers who have survived cycles of boom and bust. From the Gateway Arch in St. Louis to the Oregon coast, readers will be treated to a landscape as variously impressive as its people.

An intimate journey across and in search of America, as told by one of its most beloved writers, in a deluxe centennial edition In September 1960, John Steinbeck embarked on a journey across America. He felt that he might have lost touch with the country, with its speech, the smell of its grass and trees, its color and quality of light, the pulse of its people. To reassure himself, he set out on a voyage of rediscovery of the American identity, accompanied by a distinguished French poodle named Charley; and riding in a three-quarter-ton pickup truck named Rocinante. His course took him through almost forty states: northward from Long Island to Maine; through the Midwest to Chicago; onward by way of Minnesota, North Dakota, Montana (with which he fell in love), and Idaho to Seattle, south to San Francisco and his birthplace, Salinas; eastward through the Mojave, New Mexico, Arizona, to the vast hospitality of Texas, to New Orleans and a shocking drama of desegregation; finally, on the last leg, through Alabama, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey to New York. Travels with Charley in Search of America is an intimate look at one of America's most beloved writers in the later years of his life—a self-portrait of a man who never wrote an explicit autobiography. Written during a time of upheaval and racial tension in the South—which Steinbeck witnessed firsthand—Travels with Charley is a stunning evocation of America on the eve of a tumultuous decade. This Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition also features French flaps and deckle-edged paper. For more than sixty-five years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.

"The entire field of film historians awaits the AFI volumes with eagerness."--Eileen Bowser, Museum of Modern Art Film Department Comments on previous volumes: "The source of last resort for finding socially valuable . . . films that received such scant attention that they seem 'lost' until discovered in the AFI Catalog."--Thomas Cripps "Endlessly absorbing as an excursion into cultural history and national memory."--Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.
