From Charlotte's Web to Porky Pig and Babe, Americans betray a curiously deep regard for pigs. Hog Ties looks at this phenomenon, its relation to American culture, and the way in which themes of life and death are played out in the care, feeding, slaughter, and eating of pigs. Intermingling silly asides with serious subjects, existential concerns with environmental issues, the book considers the ways that pigs might help Americans address powerful human concerns.

Virgin Spring is the story of Nic Nichols, a rebellious teenager from the Midwest who has long had dreams of becoming a rodeo cowboy. A year before he is eligible for military service in World War II, he gets a lucky break: his parents send him to Arizona in a last-ditch effort to encourage him to finish high school. There, his passion is broncos rather than books, and his penchant for trouble continues to plague him as he tangles with rustlers, wrangling, and rodeos. But it is his friendship with an old vaquero and his romance with a young Apache woman that transform Nic into a man. Through the legend of Virgin Spring, he discovers the timelessness of love. This poignant tale evokes both the history and magic of the Southwest. "In G. N. Buffington's engaging and strongly written Virgin Spring, Nic turns into a cowboy before our eyes " -Richard Bradford, Author of the Classic, Red Sky at Morning "An engaging novel that captures the spirit of a time and place over which World War II casts its long shadow. Highly recommended." -Marc Simmons, Southwest Historian and Author of Ranchers, Ramblers, and Renegades and Others

Ranch woman Hilda Hamner spent her youth traveling with her Swedish immigrant family as they drove cattle from Texas up to Kansas cow towns in the 1870s. Hilda decided to get off the cattle trail and bought an abandoned homestead in Kansas with her horse race winnings. She plans on raising horses-and finding a husband that doesn't mind her tall, lanky body that's usually dressed in men's clothing. Noah Wilerson planned to bring his intended bride from Illinois back to the Kansas homestead he started for them, but found out his fiancee had already married someone else when arriving at her father's doorstep. After traveling back home, Noah finds a woman has taken over his claim, leaving him homeless and jobless. Hilda realizes she needs help to make her horse ranch successful, and decides that Noah is the right man-to promote from horseman to husband on her ranch-if he'll treat her as a special woman, and not just a ranching partner. Noah wants his homestead back, and the woman who has transformed the simple soddie into a family home. Between family dramas, outlaw danger, and butting heads, which one will hogtie the other to get to the church altar first? Be sure to read all of the Brides with Grit Series, starting with the first book. Please watch for five more books to continue the series in the future.

The vibrant interest in food studies among both academics and amateurs has made food history an exciting field of investigation. Taking stock of three decades of groundbreaking multidisciplinary research, the book examines two broad questions: What has history contributed to the development of food studies? How have other disciplines - sociology, anthropology, literary criticism, science, art history - influenced writing on food history in terms of approach, methodology, controversies, and knowledge of past foodways? Essays by twelve prominent scholars provide a compendium of global and multicultural answers to these questions. The contributors critically assess food history writing in the United States, Africa, Mexico and the Spanish Diaspora, India, the Ottoman Empire, the Far East - China, Japan and Korea - Europe, Jewish communities and the Middle East. Several historical eras are covered: the Ancient World, the Middle Ages, Early Modern Europe and the Modern day. The book is a unique addition to the growing literature on food history. It is required reading for anyone seeking a detailed discussion of food history research in diverse times and places.

In the sixteenth century England turned from being an insignifcant part of an offshore island into a nation respected and feared in Europe. This was not achieved through empire building, conquest, large armies, treaties, marriage alliances, trade or any of the other traditional means of exercising power. Indeed England was successful in few of these. Instead she based her power and eventual supremacy on the creation of a standing professional navy which firstly would control her coasts and those of her rivals, and then threaten their trade around the world. This emergence of a sea-power brought with it revolutionary ship designs and new weapon-fits, all with the object of making English warships feared on the seas in which they sailed. Along with this came the absorption of new navigational skills and a breed of sailor who fought for his living. Indeed, the English were able to harness the avarice of the merchant and the ferocity of the pirate to the needs of the state to create seamen who feared God and little else. Men schooled as corsairs rose to command the state's navy and their background and self-belief defeated all who came against them. This is their story; the story of how seizing command of the sea with violent intent led to the birth of the greatest seaborne empire the world has ever seen.

In the acclaimed A Life for a Life, Ernest Hill created an unforgettably candid story of violence, love, and redemption with teenaged D'Ray Reid at its center. Now, with his jail time behind him, D'Ray has returned home to find that the real fight for survival is only beginning. . . Everyone was shocked when Mr. Henry took D'Ray Reid under his wing. After all, Mr. Henry's real son, Stanley, was murdered by D'Ray--a crime D'Ray committed to save his brother, Little Man. Yet in the years since, Mr. Henry has tried to show D'Ray how to become the man Stanley would never be. After Mr. Henry's death, D'Ray seeks out his own mother, Mira, hoping to rebuild their broken relationship. But D'Ray's homecoming is more tumultuous than expected. Arrested for a crime he didn't commit, Little Man has escaped and is in hiding. Mira blames D'Ray for Little Man's troubled history, but she has her own secrets to hide. And putting things right will mean uncovering a legacy of lies and hidden agendas, and realizing the only way to be free of the past is to stand tall and confront it at last. . . Praise for the novels of Ernest Hill "If novels offer us a way of seeing the world that we could not imagine before, A Life for a Life does just that." --The Times-Picayune "An exceptional literary piece that some readers will compare to Richard Wright's Native Son."--Booklist on Satisfied with Nothin' "As the story unfolds. . .these unforgettable characters come to full, sympathetic life."--Publishers Weekly on A Person of Interest "A skilled storyteller." --New York Times Book Review

Tyler Brykman returns home form a business trip to find the mutilated bodies of his wife and two children. Morgan Strongbow and Sara Rydell are assigned to the case even though Sara may not be fully recovered from the life-threatening wound she received solving their previous case. Brykman immediately becomes their primary suspect until he tells them he was in Europe. As soon as Strongbow and Sara corroborate Brykman's alibi, they turn their attention to his partner, a manipulative bully named Ronald Mazarovic. When Mazarovic's wife and children meet the same fate as Tyler Brykman's, the police are certain they have their man. The problem is, Mazarovic also has an alibi for the times when both homicides took place. Could the two attorneys have plotted the murders together and acted as each other's alibis? Or might someone be trying to take revenge on Brykman and Mazarovic for an series of events that took place decades earlier when the two were in grammar school. Betrayal. Bullies. Manipulation. Rape. Revenge. Old School Ties has all of the mind bending plot twists that readers of Veiled Threats, the first installment of Lloyd Frankland's Chicagoland Detective Series, have come to expect.
