Dreams of a fiery jaguar haunt Henry Grace when his old friend, Pancho Villa, fighting a civil war, asks for help. Henry begins a long journey into darkness supporting Villa. It is a time of cold, ruthless calculation and a time of insanity; a time of betrayal and a time of loyalty; a time of deadly enemies and a time of unseen friends; a time of revenge and a time of justice; a time of secrets and a time of answers hidden in a dream. Most importantly, it is a time when Henry discovers what is true about his own self.

The patriot army of Ben Raines went toe to toe with the most powerful enemy in the world—the United States—and fought its way through hellish chaos and terrorism. But for the free and the brave there is no rest—not when US leader Claire Osterman has been ousted from power. Her reaction: a plan for revenge that will plunge the North American continent into bloody war. The attack will come from the South, where Osterman has made a pact with the devil—a former Sandinista Rebel named Perro Loco. Rushing up through Costa Rica and Mexico, their unholy alliance is poised to strike at the heart of the SUSA. Ben Raines, however, will not wait until blood is spilled on his soil. He will lead his own strike force into the jungles of Mexico . . . and kill the enemy on his own ground.

This coming of age story is told through the eyes of the author’s daughter, Amy, who is five years old when the book begins. She lives with her family in Thibodaux, Louisiana. Amy knows her family will move sooner or later because of her dad’s work. But her dad’s transfer to a small town in northeast Nevada is a daunting prospect for the entire family after spending so many years in the warm, temperate climate of the friendly Cajun country.

As Amy learns about new and different cultures, she develops tolerance for the differences and a more perceptive attitude toward other people of the world. When her older brother and sister go away to school in Switzerland, she’s suddenly thrust into the life of an only child. On her journey toward adulthood, she encounters the usual hardships and disappointments of growing up, along with amazing adventures travelling in foreign lands. She learns to take the problems in stride and enjoy the adventure. Her experiences are amusing, exciting, some very sweet, a few a bit scary, and all fun to read.

THE UNFORGIVING is set in the Dominican Republic during the heyday of direct U.S. military intervention in the Caribbean. There are military actions, betrayals, intrigue, good humor and romantic encounters between an American Marine captain and the beautiful daughter of the wealthiest Dominican on the island. The novel takes place immediately after the end of the First World War and depicts the impact of an occupying military force of Americans in the affairs of a small nation.

Marine officers and men find themselves in a critical position between peasants lending support to guerrilla insurgents and ruthless sugar barons. This insightful book examines the unwelcome and unexpected role of American Marines trying to resolve an age-old problem of exploitation of the weak and helpless by the rich and powerful.

Everyone eats, but rarely do we ask why or investigate why we eat what we eat. Why do we love spices, sweets, coffee? How did rice become such a staple food throughout so much of eastern Asia? Everyone Eats examines the social and cultural reasons for our food choices and provides an explanation of the nutritional reasons for why humans eat, resulting in a unique cultural and biological approach to the topic. E. N. Anderson explains the economics of food in the globalization era, food's relationship to religion, medicine, and ethnicity as well as offers suggestions on how to end hunger, starvation, and malnutrition. Everyone Eats feeds our need to understand human ecology by explaining the ways that cultures and political systems structure the edible environment.

This volume of stories spans almost fifty years of Highsmith's career, allowing us to see how she evolved from a struggling freelance writer in New York to one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century. The stories assembled in Nothing That Meets the Eye, written between 1938 and 1982, are vintage Highsmith: a gigolo-like psychopath preys on unfulfilled career women; a lonely spinster's fragile hold on reality is tethered to the bottle; an estranged postal worker invents homicidal fantasies about his coworkers. While some stories anticipate the diabolical narratives of the Ripley novels, others possess a sweetness that forces us to see the author in a new light. These are suspenseful, playful, taut and psychologically gripping stories, evidence of an extraordinary talent.

In 1816, Mordecai Lewis, a veteran of Andrew Jackson's Indian campaigns and battles against the British, moves his family into the western Tennessee canebrakes. But Mordecai, a born wanderer, is not satisfied with farming, and with his sons Michael and Andrew and some other backwoodsmen, he leads a foray into Spanish-held Texas to hunt wild horses and return the mustang herd to sell in Tennessee. Crossing the Sabine River, Mordecai's party encounters a Spanish patrol determined to repel all American invaders. After a bloody skirmish leaves their father dead, Michael and Andrew find their way back to their Tennessee farm. Five years later, after the Spanish government in Mexico City has agreed to permit 300 American families to settle in Texas, the Lewis brothers have their opportunity to re-enter Texas. They ride to the frontier town of Natchitoches, Louisiana, where Michael falls in love with Marie Villaret, daughter of a wealthy French landowner, then cross the Sabine to find Stephen F. Austin, a Missouri entrepreneur in charge of the new American colony. But the Lewises are considered interlopers and horse thieves and are dogged by a patrol led by the same ruthless Spanish offer who killed their father five years before. Sons of Texas is the first volume in a trilogy that follows the lives and adventures of the Lewis family through the era of the Alamo and Texas Independence under Sam Houston.
