“A demonstration of outstanding skills on the river of American literature.” —Entertainment Weekly "Bonnie Jo Campbell has built her new novel like a modern-day craftsman from the old timbers of our national myths about loners living off the land, rugged tales as perilous as they are alluring. Without sacrificing any of its originality, this story comes bearing the saw marks of classic American literature, the rough-hewn sister of The Leatherstocking Tales, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and Walden.”—Ron Charles, Washington Post

This is a full-length novel about an environmental crisis in the Platte River Valley of eastern Nebraska. In addition to scorching temperatures, prairie fires, and water shortages, there is yet another problem: "heat crazy" wild animals are attacking humans in many parts of the Platte River Valley. Within only a few weeks, the death toll begins to soar. Zephaniah Pike, a federal agent, is sent to Nebraska to investigate. He and his team of experts soon find themselves in a bizarre and ever-worsening predicament, one that pits armed locals against angry environmentalists. Amidst the turmoil, Agent Pike must find some answers---and a way to avoid mob violence and bloodshed. The members of Agent Pike's "crisis team" include Jacob Vogel, a Nebraska-based federal agent; Dr. Susan Hotaru, a wildlife biologist, and Old Man Elk, a Pawnee Indian artist and activist who is intimately familiar with Nebraska wildlife. The four members of the team struggle to solve the crisis and to work together as a truly united team. Observing them all the while is Ahwa, a female coyote, who does not trust the ways of the intrusive "Two-Leggeds." One early reviewer has described "Once Upon the River Platte" as "a real gem. It shines and sparkles in every way."

""Once upon a Time in the Twenty-First Century" is an innovative, inspirational, and unique creative writing textbook/handbook that fills many educational needs and gaps. Designed to appeal to a wide range of readers and writers - from teenagers to young adults, from grade nine through college and beyond - this volume of exercises is of inestimable value to students and teachers in the traditional classroom, a growing number of homeschoolers, others who are served by "distance learning," those who are part of a writing club or group, and independent writers and learners of all ages. The book is based on years of hands-on experiences in the teaching of creative writing in public high schools and after-school writing clubs. The book begins with poet Robin Behn's introduction and is followed by three writing sections: Genres and Forms; Sources and Methods; and Style and Subject. In each section, Behn offers a brief introduction to how to get started and specific ways to develop one's writing, and each introduction is then followed by extensive exercises that draw on classic literature and popular culture, ranging from Flannery O'Connor and Tennessee Williams to Elizabeth Bishop and Gertrude Stein, from Thomas Wolf and Pablo Neruda to Salman Rushdie and Arlo Guthrie. As part of Behn's layered approach to learning, she integrates within the exercises apt examples of student writings that have emerged from actual use of the exercises in both the classroom and in writing groups. The book concludes with general advice and direction on how to get published"--

Once Upon an Oldman is an account of the controversy that surrounded the Alberta government's construction of a dam on the Oldman River to provide water for irrigation in the southern part of the province. Jack Glenn argues that, despite claims to the contrary, the governments of Canada and Alberta are not dedicated to protecting the environment and will even circumvent the law in order to avoid accepting responsibility for safeguarding the environment and the interests of Native people.

Billionaires, cowboys, and romance collide during the holidays in this next book in the River Ranch series by Soraya Lane. When Cody Ford comes back to Texas for Christmas, he’s dragging his toes. The last thing he wants is to be back on the family ranch when he could stay in New York, but his family always spends the holidays together and he knows better than to cancel on them. What he wasn’t expecting was his one-time girlfriend, Lexi Murphy, to be his father’s new live-in nurse. It seems his family has fallen in love with the girl he had a fling with as a teenager, before he left Texas and never looked back. But Lexi holds a grudge that hasn’t disappeared with time. Cody thought he was too good for hometown girls’ back then, and the single mom isn’t about to give him the time of day now. He headed off to college without so much as a goodbye kiss fifteen years earlier, and he’s less cowboy and more corporate suit after so long away from his home state. Cody has his work cut out for him when it comes to making his one-time lover forgive him, but suddenly being back on the ranch for Christmas isn’t looking so bleak after all. How did he ever leave all this behind, and why the hell did he ever think he was too good for a woman like Lexi? When a snowstorm leaves them stranded at Christmas, the stakes become even higher when Cody risks everything to save Lexi’s son. The city slicker slots straight back into cowboy mode to plough through the snow, risking it all to save the one person Lexi couldn’t live without. Can Lexi ever trust Cody again? And can Cody convince Lexi that he’s not the ruthless playboy that she thinks he is? Once Upon a Christmas Cowboy proves that even the worst of enemies can eventually fall in love... and that you can’t ever take the country out of a cowboy. Especially at Christmas!

I beg you, let it free again. Th is is the setting for Th e Day of the Mermaid, a story of the awakened love of that young man for the maiden who appears before him, recounted when he is old and looking back upon the day when his heart was forever captured and forever broken a lyrical and romantic tale in gentle, sensitive and poignant verse: Why are you thus so sad? said I. Why do you grieve for such a thing? Is not the ocean full with fi sh? Is one worth so much sorrowing?

Three brilliant scientists harness the power to fold time and visit the past and future like a common tourist. One scientist formulates a tour of Biblical events because he believes in God, but the tour is reluctantly and accidentally traveled by a scientist who does not. What will unbelieving eyes see, and how will they interpret the most significant supernatural events of all time? The tour embraces world history from the beginning of creation and into the future, where Biblical prophecy tells us that dangerous people will control the whole world, countless millions of people will evaporate, and society will plunge into darkness. What if a time traveler visited just two years into the future after the Biblical Prophetic clock has already started ticking? And then catapulted into the past, where Earth is like another planet entirely? What kind of world, and what kind of tribulation would he find? And as an unbeliever, how would he respond to it? Light deals with the issues of Biblical prophecy, recent young-earth creation, a literal and startling twist on how things were, and how things will be. Set aside the notions of being left behind, and embrace the idea of being brought along, in the circuits of Earth’s end-to-end timeline. Enter a future we’d rather forget, and a history that nobody remembers.
