Andrew Wyeth: In Retrospect
Best price for this book: $ 34
This major retrospective catalogue explores the impact of time and place on the work of beloved American painter Andrew Wyeth (1917–2009). While previous publications have mainly analyzed Wyeth’s work thematically, this publication places him fully in the context of the long 20th century, tracing his creative development from World War I through the new millennium.
Published to coincide with the centenary of Wyeth’s birth, the book looks at four major chronological periods in the artist’s career: Wyeth as a product of the interwar years, when he started to form his own “war memories” through military props and documentary photography he discovered in his father’s art studio; the change from his “theatrical” pictures of the 1940s to his own visceral responses to the landscape around Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, and his family’s home in Maine; his sudden turn, in 1968, into the realm of erotic art, including a completely new assessment of Wyeth’s “Helga pictures”—a series of secret, nude depictions of his neighbor Helga Testorf—within his career as a whole; and his late, self-reflective works, which includes the discussion of his previously unknown painting entitled Goodbye, now believed to be Wyeth’s last work.

Yellow Hair documents the injustices done to the Sioux Nation from their first treaty with the United States in 1805 through Wounded Knee in 1890. Every death, murder, battle, and outrage written about actually took place. The historical figures that play a role in this fact-based tale of fiction were real people and the author uses their real names. Yellow Hair is an epic tale of adventure, family, love, and hate that spans most of the 19th century.
This is American history.

Book 0: Lily
The year is 1885, and the dusty little town of Iron Bark is just a stage stop on the vast frontier. Lily Cunningham steps off the coach to find a strange man greeting her. Luther Campbell is dapper, rich, and definitely interested in her, but Lily senses something sinister about him from her very first glance. He confirms her suspicions when he refuses to intervene when ruffians attack an innocent mountain man in the street right in front of her. Lily has no choice but to intervene herself.
She finds herself drawn to Jude Farrell in spite of his rough clothing and his unpolished manners. When she meets him again in town, sparks fly and romance blooms. Luther Campbell isn’t happy to lose Lily’s attentions, though, and he sets about making their lives as difficult as possible. In no time, a web of danger, mystery, and competing passions sweep Lily into an unknown world where nothing is what it seems. Can she find her way to a brave new future, or will the frontier’s many dangers overcome her and destroy all her hopes and dreams?
Book 1: Star
Star Cunningham is a Bruin princess who can make any man weak in the knees, with a temper to match. She can’t stand listening to her father and brothers talk non-stop about the feud raging across Bruins’ Mountain between the Cunninghams and the rival Farrell tribe. Every Bruin in the territory gets pulled into the bloodbath somehow. Star can only escape to her favorite look-out on Bruins’ Peak, but when she gets there, she finds her bench occupied by Brody Farrell.
Brody is muscular, powerful, and certain of his right to claim the Peak as his own. He represents everything Star hates about this feud, but when Star flies in a rage at him, he stands up to her as no one else has ever dared to do. While they’re calling each other names, she lets slip the secret that her father wants to marry her to the son of the Kerr tribe to seal an alliance against the Farrells.
Now what did she have to go and do that for? Will Brody betray her secret to her blood enemies, or can these two dynamic forces find a romance that can blossom in the midst of mayhem?

My Fellow Soldiers: General John Pershing and the Americans Who Helped Win the Great War
Best price for this book: $ 13.2
Andrew Carroll’s intimate portrait of General Pershing, who led all of the American troops in Europe during World War I, is a revelation. Given a military force that on the eve of its entry into the war was downright primitive compared to the European combatants, the general surmounted enormous obstacles to build an army and ultimately command millions of U.S. soldiers. But Pershing himself—often perceived as a harsh, humorless, and wooden leader—concealed inner agony from those around him: almost two years before the United States entered the war, Pershing suffered a personal tragedy so catastrophic that he almost went insane with grief and remained haunted by the loss for the rest of his life, as private and previously unpublished letters he wrote to family members now reveal. Before leaving for Europe, Pershing also had a passionate romance with George Patton’s sister, Anne. But once he was in France, Pershing fell madly in love with a young painter named Micheline Resco, whom he later married in secret.
Woven throughout Pershing’s story are the experiences of a remarkable group of American men and women, both the famous and unheralded, including Harry Truman, Douglas Macarthur, William “Wild Bill” Donovan, Teddy Roosevelt, and his youngest son Quentin. The chorus of these voices, which begins with the first Americans who enlisted in the French Foreign Legion 1914 as well as those who flew with the Lafayette Escadrille, make the high stakes of this epic American saga piercingly real and demonstrates the war’s profound impact on the individuals who served—during and in the years after the conflict—with extraordinary humanity and emotional force.
