Buy Arctic Dreams at Amazon

Arctic Dreams

By

"Acclaimed author and essayist Barry Lopez invites us to a land that, at first glance, appears inhospitable: the frigid expanse of the Arctic. With patience and curiosity, the author ventures into this harsh realm and discovers a world rich with life, history, and meaning. Arctic Dreams is a mesmerizing blend of natural history and ice-pure poetry, revealing the beating heart of a frozen world." – Matthew Thompson, executive editor

Buy Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee at Amazon

Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee

By Dee Brown

"This is a must-read in every sense. Author Dee Brown employs council records and firsthand accounts of warriors and chiefs to retrace the history of Native Americans and their systematic eradication in the nineteenth-century American west. Told in unflinching prose, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee is a heartbreaking read. Yet it is also essential, a book that listens to voices of the Native Americans and speaks to the brutal truths of America’s past." – Matthew Thompson, executive editor

Buy A Night to Remember at Amazon

A Night to Remember

By

"Any fan of any book that has been called "literary nonfiction" will love A Night to Remember. Lord interviewed over 60 survivors of the Titanic to create this incredible, immersive recounting of the night the unsinkable ship sank. Unlike many other Titanic stories, Lord's story doesn't neglect the second and third class passengers, who were disproportionately killed by the shipwreck. The memories of survivors are woven together in a compelling narrative that will suck you in." – Catherine Phelan, associate editor

Slouching Towards Bethlehem

By

"Joan Didion has become a hipster touchstone in the last few years, but not just because of her undeniably great style. In Slouching Towards Bethlehem, Didion offers a unique, erudite, and often cutting perspective on the Summer of Love, Charles Manson, and more. Slouching Towards Bethlehem has offered me, and many others, lessons in life, culture, politics, and the art of writing." – Catherine Phelan, associate editor

An Ordinary Woman

By

"Growing up in California, I knew many extraordinary women. They should all read this embellished biography of 'ordinary' pioneer woman Nancy Roberts Kelsey, a teenaged mother who trekked from Missouri to California. Cecelia Holland has a way of drawing in readers to the hardships of pioneer life and what life was like in California during that time." – Jennifer Jackson, editorial director
