THE GREATEST WESTERN WRITERS OF THE 21ST CENTURY In this powerful new novel, William W. Johnstone and J.A. Johnstone chronicle Smoke Jensen’s early years, long before he became a legend . . . Kirby—later Smoke—Jensen has just earned his first paying job as a deputy U.S. marshal for the Colorado Territory and is sent to the lawless town of Las Animas. There, he finds a sheriff too cowardly to face the outlaw leader Cole Dawson, whose six-gun has left a lot of good men dead. Young Smoke feels no such fear. He takes Dawson down fast. Then the real fight begins. It turns out Dawson is only a cog in a crooked plot hatched by someone hiding behind the law. For a young deputy marshal, going up against the powerful and corrupt is almost certainly a fool’s mission, but doing nothing is not a choice. When Smoke strikes, he’s in all the bloody way, and what follows will become the stuff of legend. Braving bullets, blood, and treachery to face down the most dangerous outlaw in Colorado Territory, Smoke will earn a reputation for justice and the rule of law in a wild, violent frontier.

This book offers an explosive look at violence in America--why it is so prevalent, and what and who are responsible. David Courtwright takes the long view of his subject, developing the historical pattern of violence and disorder in this country. Where there is violent and disorderly behavior, he shows, there are plenty of men, largely young and single. What began in the mining camp and bunkhouse has simply continued in the urban world of today, where many young, armed, intoxicated, honor-conscious bachelors have reverted to frontier conditions. "Violent Land" combines social science with an engrossing narrative that spans and reinterprets the history of violence and social disorder in America. Courtwright focuses on the origins, consequences, and eventual decline of frontier brutality. Though these rough days have passed, he points out that the frontier experience still looms large in our national self-image--and continues to influence the extent and type of violence in America as well as our collective response to it. Broadly interdisciplinary, looking at the interplay of biological, social, and historical forces behind the dark side of American life, this book offers a disturbing diagnosis of violence in our society.

From the great Brazilian author, an exotic tale of greed, madness, and a dispute between two powerful families over land on the cocoa-rich coast of Bahia The siren song of the lush, cocoa-growing forests of Bahia lures them all—the adventurers, the assassins, the gamblers, the brave and beautiful women. It is not a gentle song, but a song of greed, madness, and blood. It is a song that promises riches untold, or death for the price of a swig of rum . . . a song most cannot resist—until it is too late—not Margot, the golden blond prostitute who comes for love; not Cabral, the unscrupulous lawyer who works for one of the Cacao “colonels”; and not Juca, whose ruthless quest to reap the jungle’s harvest plants the seeds of his own destruction.

Spanning 33 years, Craig Tigerman's poetry plumbs the spiritual depths of humanity, collectively and individually. His writing covers a range of classic styles; his mastery of the English language shines in his lyrical passages, rhythms, and rhyme schemes. A scholar after the old school style, Tigerman has been likened to several classic poets in his writing, while it also forges ahead into new worlds, intensely personal yet universal in appeal. These hills are all but haunting me; They rise and roll, so green and vast, Or golden, shrouded, wanting me To worship here, see future's past In timeless vistas, vaunted mounds Of rocks and earth, grand trees, hued blooms. Their secrets speak in silent sounds: "Commune with me, Nepenthe's rooms." (-- "Nepenthe's Rooms" by Craig Tigerman) Craig Tigerman makes his home in Moline, Illinois, with his wife and son, and works as a software support specialist. He is currently working on a new collection of poetry, "Seasons of My Heart."
