William Fife and Son was one of the premier yacht building yards in Britain and one of the most famous in the world. Some of the most beautiful yachts ever built were designed by three notable members of the Fife family. William Fife I, originally a builder of fishing smacks, famously created the paddlesteamer Industry. He is particularly remembered for his desire to build yachts that were 'fast and bonnie'. William Fife II consolidated the reputation of the yard and developed designs that were way ahead of their time. William Fife III took the yard to the apogee of its success, designing two of Sir Thomas Lipton's famous challengers for the America's Cup. His clients included some of the crowned heads of Europe and his designs were in demand in Australia, America and Canada. This memorable piece of yachting history chronicles the development and progress of the yard and its business from the beginning of the nineteenth century until its closure in 1939; almost 1,000 boats were designed and built in this period. Many Fife boats are still afloat and there are still special regattas for them and even a yard dedicated to their restoration. This story of enterprise and craftsmanship is interspersed with lively anecdotes about the family, their clients and their craftsmen.

One of the most sought-after criminals of the Depression era, Ralph Fults began his career of crime at the improbable age of fourteen. At nineteen he met Clyde Barrow in a Texas prison, and the two men together founded what would later be known as the Barrow gang. Running with Bonnie and Clyde is the story of Fults's experiences in the Texas criminal underworld between the years 1925 and 1935 and the gripping account of his involvement with the Barrow gang, particularly its notorious duo, Bonnie and Clyde. Fults's "ten fast years" were both dramatic and violent. As an adolescent he escaped numerous juvenile institutions and jails, was shot by an Oklahoma police officer, and was brutalized by prison guards. With Clyde, following their fateful meeting in 1930, he robbed a bank to finance a prison raid. After the ambush of Bonnie and Clyde, in 1934, he joined forces with Raymond Hamilton; together the two robbed more banks and eluded countless posses before Hamilton's capture and 1935 execution. One of the few survivors among numerous associates who ended up shot, stabbed, beaten to death, or executed, Fults was later able to reform himself, believing that the only reason he was spared was to reveal the darkest aspects of his past-and in so doing expose the circumstances that propel youth into crime. Author John Neal Phillips tells Fults's story in vivid and at times raw detail, recounting bank robberies, killings, and prison escapes, friendships, love affairs, and marriages. Dialogues based on actual conversations amongst the participants enhance the narrative's authenticity. Whereas in books and mms, Fults, Parker, Barrow, and Hamilton have been romanticized or depicted as one-dimensional, depraved characters, Running with Bonnie and Clyde shows them as real people, products of social, political, and economic forces that directed them into a life of crime and bound them to it for eternity. Although basing his account primarily on Fults's testimony, Phillips substantiates that viewpoint with references to scores of eyewitness interviews, police files and court documents, and contemporary news accounts. An important contribution to criminal and social history, Running with Bonnie and Clyde will be fascinating reading for scholars and general readers alike.

ABOUT THE BOOK As far as high-profile and fast-paced crimes go, you need look no further than Bonnie and Clyde: 1930s outlaws of the West. Born Bonnie Parker and Clyde “Champion” Barrow, respectively, they met in West Dallas when Bonnie was just 19. Her lover and husband, Roy Thornton, had just left her, and she fell in love with Mr. Clyde Barrow after being introduced by a friend. The famous romance and crime spree began, leaving a number of dead bodies, hijacked cars and bank robberies behind them. Bonnie and Clyde are the story of a young girl, devoted to her man, and sticking by his side through theft, murder, and finally premature death. MEET THE AUTHOR Megan Yarnall is a publicist and writer from Bucks County, Pennsylvania. She studied English, creative writing, and Italian at Dickinson College, and wrote her thesis on the connections between humans, their bodies, and language. She graduated in 2010 after spending four years organizing all of her college’s concerts. Megan has lived abroad in Italy and loves studying foreign language, linguistics, and writing. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Bonnie and Clyde’s whirlwind of crime began shortly before they met, when Clyde was in prison on account of theft and stolen goods. While the authorities had trouble convicting him on these accounts, he was transferred to Waco, Texas. In Waco, Clyde admitted to burglaries and car thefts, and was sentenced to two years in a state prison. Bonnie appeared on the scene and smothered a gun to Clyde during one of her daily visits to the prison. He and cellmate, William Turner, escaped prison along with another inmate, Emory Abernathy. When Clyde and Turner were recaptured in Middletown, Ohio and sent to the Texas State Penitentiary for 14 years, Bonnie and Clyde could only keep in touch through written letters. Fortunately for Bonnie and Clyde, Clyde was a mamma’s boy and after only two years in the penitentiary, his mother helped him get pardoned for his crimes and released. He walked out of prison on crutches after having another inmate cut off two of his toes to get out of work shortly before his pardon. Heading up to Massachusetts with Bonnie, Clyde looked for work in the North. Clyde’s work ended shortly when he went back to Bonnie in the South and they stole a car to keep moving. When Bonnie was caught, Clyde managed to escape and Bonnie spent a few long months alone in jail. Upon her release, she joined Clyde, who had kept busy by robbing an oil company as well as a jewelry store. The jewelry heist ended with the murder of John Bucher. Clyde and his friend and accomplice, Raymond Hamilton, became famous for this murder despite his denial of involvement, claiming he was in the car at the time it happened. Buy a copy to keep reading!

She took a step backward and threw the key on the ground. With the voice now shrieking at her, the young girl took another step back.

Then the heavy door suddenly opened on its own to reveal a strange, weirdly colored world inside. Truly frightened now, the young girl began to turn around when a hand that looked more like a claw with its blood-red nails, reached from inside this smelly world and grabbed her gown. Before she could tear herself free, the hand pulled the young girl inside with tremendous force. The young girl screamed from deep inside as the big door shut in her face with a loud thud.

Freeman, the new novel by Leonard Pitts, Jr., takes place in the first few months following the Confederate surrender and the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Upon learning of Lee's surrender, Sam--a runaway slave who once worked for the Union Army--decides to leave his safe haven in Philadelphia and set out on foot to return to the war-torn South. What compels him on this almost-suicidal course is the desire to find his wife, the mother of his only child, whom he and their son left behind 15 years earlier on the Mississippi farm to which they all "belonged." At the same time, Sam's wife, Tilda, is being forced to walk at gunpoint with her owner and two of his other slaves from the charred remains of his Mississippi farm into Arkansas, in search of an undefined place that would still respect his entitlements as slaveowner and Confederate officer. The book's third main character, Prudence, is a fearless, headstrong white woman of means who leaves her Boston home for Buford, Mississippi, to start a school for the former bondsmen, and thus honor her father’s dying wish. At bottom, Freeman is a love story--sweeping, generous, brutal, compassionate, patient--about the feelings people were determined to honor, despite the enormous constraints of the times. It is this aspect of the book that should ensure it a strong, vocal, core audience of African-American women, who will help propel its likely critical acclaim to a wider audience. At the same time, this book addresses several themes that are still hotly debated today, some 145 years after the official end of the Civil War. Like Cold Mountain, Freeman illuminates the times and places it describes from a fresh perspective, with stunning results. It has the potential to become a classic addition to the literature dealing with this period. Few other novels so powerfully capture the pathos and possibility of the era particularly as it reflects the ordeal of the black slaves grappling with the promise--and the terror--of their new status as free men and women.
