Book Summary:

What if we could travel in time and space as we do in the air? Are the deepest seas in the same degree close as the stars from the far corners of the universe? Are we truly as primitive as we are led to believe? So many questions remain unanswered while we struggle with our existence. We covet the great conquerors and leaders throughout history. We cry as we see our credit card balances increase and savings accounts decrease. We fantasize over great vacations or living in a wonderful mansion and question the line between reality and fiction. Fortunately, the answers to so many of our questions are not as far from us as we might believe. Our distant ancestors might not be in the role of untouchable, as we once believed. Each night we casually lay down to rest from our daily struggles and mysteriously venture into another dimension that is as real during its control over our mind and body as our lives in the material world. The power of dreams takes us into other worlds and ages, where all our songs are hits, and we win our battles. Even though we do not win all our battles, we still come out victorious. What was false may now be true, and the stars are in our back yard. Love obeys its own rules as the wicked and hateful fall down before us. These worlds of worlds where kings follow our commands remain as great a mystery today as it was for those who walked among the Earth millennium earlier. We preserve our sanity by disregarding this special world, maintaining that it is not real. Is it real or fantasy? Even though our adventures erase from our minds quickly after we awaken, the fact that we were there cannot be denied. Discover what happens when this solid line begins to vanish.

Book Summary:

From the beginning of the season, Dabo Swinney's rallying cry was "joy." Each week for opponents, though, was another joyless occasion against a big orange machine that found its high gear midseason. The results shook the foundation of college football. In 2015 and 2016, the Tigers needed to bring their own guts to achieve great things. In Swinney's tenth season, they brought their own sledgehammers. Larry Williams, who has covered Clemson and Swinney since 2004, unearths revealing anecdotes from Dabo's tenure and shares how a season dominated by Alabama hype ended up overwhelmed by a Clemson tide.

Book Summary:

With ten books over a thirty-year span, Thomas McGuane has proven himself over and over again "a virtuoso . . . a writer of the first magnitude," as Jonathan Yardley wrote in the New York Times Book Review. "His sheer writing skill is nothing short of amazing." But he has devoted a couple decades more to another sustaining passion: the pursuit of most every sporting fish known to the angler's hopes and dreams. The quarry--from trout and salmon to striped bass, massive tarpon, and chimerical permit--inhabit these thirty-three essays as surely as the characters of a novel, luring the author back to childhood haunts in Michigan and Rhode Island, and on through the stages of his life in San Francisco, Key West, and Montana; from the river in his backyard to the holiest waters of the American fishery, and to such far-flung locales as Ireland, Argentina, New Zealand, and Russia. As he travels with friends, with his son, alone, or in the literary company of Roderick Haig-Brown or Isaak Walton, the fish take him to such subjects as "unfounded opinions" on rods and reels, the classification of anglers according to the flies they prefer, family, and memory--right down to why fisherman lie. "His essay subjects are the stuff of epics," Geoffrey Wolff has written, "and his narratives can make you laugh out loud." Infused with a deep experience of wildlife and the outdoors, dedicated to conservation, reverent and hilarious by turns or at once, The Longest Silence sets the heart pounding for a glimpse of moving water, and demonstrates what a life dedicated to sport reveals about life.

Book Summary:

With more breweries per capita than any other Oregon city, Bend is a beer mecca. Prior to Prohibition, the state had a burgeoning brewing industry and plenty of saloons to cater to the needs of the hardy frontiersmen who settled Central Oregon. The teetotaling '20s brought all that to a screeching halt. Fifty years later, the arrival of pioneers like Deschutes Brewery and Bend Brewing Company breathed new life into Bend's beer and brought about the booming industry for which the area is known today. Author and "The Brew Site" creator Jon Abernathy traces Bend and Central Oregon's hoppy history from early settlement to the present day, sharing the stories behind its most famous breweries and the communities that have fostered the industry.

Book Summary:

This is a story about the West Texas drought of the 1950s, written by a man who as a teenage boy grew up on a drought-stricken Schleicher County ranch during those years. Seven years of relentless dry weather saw crops writher, top soil blown away, farms lost, and ranches forced into bankruptcy. Lakes went dry, towns were short of drinking water, and dust storms were numerous. Cowboys became oil field roughnecks. Farmers became store clerks. The drought changed West Texas forever. For some, the drought tore families apart, but the main characters of this story relied on each other to get through the tough times. This book, therefore, is also a love story about two people who met and married in a faraway place and who returned to his family’s Menard County ranch to put down their roots, only to see their dreams dashed by the drought. They were forced to make some bold decisions, but through it all they hung on to each other, which allowed their close relationship to blossom into an incredible love affair.
