Women don’t come to After Sundown for the beer – they come to get laid. When wealthy Cole Taylor walks into the bar that night, it’s for a drink. He gave up one-night stands in his wild youth, but that changes when he sees her. She is too tempting to pass up, and by the looks from the other men at the bar, he needs to move quick to claim the prize. Kit Landon – a struggling young widow, raising her daughter alone – has her own reasons for being at After Sundown. And it has nothing to do with illicit sex. But things can escalate a little too fast after nervously downing several beers on an empty stomach. The conservative young widow finds herself in an extremely compromising situation and barely manages to escape, leaving behind a furious Cole Taylor. Kit never wants to see the man again, but she is in for a big surprise.

Share this delightful Christmas story of childhood imagination. With simple 3x5 index cards, a brother and sister create a Christmas village filled with ingenuity and wonder. Before reading the book with your favorite child, make sure you have some index cards, sticky tape, colored markers and scissors on hand, as the child will be anxious to create his or her own unique Christmas Village after reading the story. About the Book: "The Story of the Christmas Village" was originally published as a paperback in 2006. It is a true story, simply written in a style appropriate for beginning readers. Yet, it wasn't written for the general public, but for our family, primarily for my mother. The book was a way to preserve the Christmas village that inspired the story. Various family members received copies of the book on Christmas, 2006. One was my sister, Lynn, a second grade teacher. A number of years went by before my sister came to me with an idea. She thought I should market the paperback with a packet of 3 x5 index cards, color markers, tape and scissors - a book/craft pack. Lynn told me she read the story to her class each year, and the students loved it. The story sparked their imagination. After reading it, they immediately wanted to make their own village from index cards. I never took her advice, but a few years later, when color eBook readers and iPads came on the scene, she urged me to turn the story into an eBook. She was still reading it to her class each year, and the students continue to respond to the story. Remember to pick up some index cards, tape, scissors and color markers before reading the story with your child.

"The definitive work on the West's water crisis." --Newsweek The story of the American West is the story of a relentless quest for a precious resource: water. It is a tale of rivers diverted and dammed, of political corruption and intrigue, of billion-dollar battles over water rights, of ecological and economic disaster. In his landmark book, Cadillac Desert, Marc Reisner writes of the earliest settlers, lured by the promise of paradise, and of the ruthless tactics employed by Los Angeles politicians and business interests to ensure the city's growth. He documents the bitter rivalry between two government giants, the Bureau of Reclamation and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, in the competition to transform the West. Based on more than a decade of research, Cadillac Desert is a stunning expose and a dramatic, intriguing history of the creation of an Eden--an Eden that may only be a mirage. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Amidst all the literature and discussion supporting globalization, author and geographer, Danilo J. Anton, argues against it. In his newest book, Diversity, Globalization, and the Ways of Nature, Anton demonstrates how diversity is necessary for both natural and cultural survival. He is not against progress, rather he illustrates how the "informatics revolution" can be used to promote public participation, capture traditional knowledge, and provide new methods for the defense of the natural environment.

In this heavily illustrated book, Mike Milligan has captured the still developing story of one of those remote, but no longer secluded, corners of the Colorado Plateau. Upstream from Moab on the Colorado River, near the Colorado state line, there is a relatively short, deep canyon that has become one of the most popular river-running destinations in America. The canyon is known as Westwater. Its popularity is largely due to the thrill provided by one of the most dangerous and challenging stretches of white water on the Colorado---Skull Rapid. Near the head of the canyon are the remnants of the tiny town of Westwater, which has had an interesting and eventful history of its own, partly because of the river and canyon, partly because of the railroad that passes through it, and partly because of its remoteness. It has attracted over the years more than its fair share of colorful characters---government explorers and agents, boosters and get-rich-quick dreamers, cattle and sheep men, outlaws and bootleggers, and, of course, river runners. Mike Milligan, who came to know the area as a river guide, has written a thorough history of this out-of-the-way place. While it has a colorful history that makes its story interesting in and of itself, Westwater's significance derives more from a phenomenon of the modern West-thousands of recreational river runners. They have pushed a backwater place into the foreground of modern popular culture in the West. Westwater seems to represent one common sequence in western history: the late opening of unexplored territories; sporadic, often unsuccessful attempts to develop them; renewed obscurity when development doesn't succeed; their attraction of a marginal society of misfits or loners; and modern rediscovery due to new cultural motives, especially outdoors recreation, which has brought a great number of people into thousands of remote corners of the West.
