New Book Releases for November

November 18, 2013

We are highlighting three exciting New Book Releases for November 2013 from our New Book Releases List (click to see all the new releases). If you are looking for something new to read this is a great place to start.

On A Wing and A Prayer

Parnell Stillman, ace pilot, is man to the bone in a lackadaisical kind of way. He has the ability to fly through anything except solid mountain. He lives alone because people are not to be trusted—especially women. Flying is his high road until one sleet-filled morning–it isn’t. Mischance forces his plane down in a frozen wilderness. He can survive, but his cargo is another matter–an annoying social worker and five orphans–the most irksome freight he’s ever hauled in his life.

Rebecca Hollis is distraught. The orphans have missed their chance for parents. They can’t miss Christmas, too. She determines to force the obnoxious, disagreeable, self-centered pilot to do whatever is necessary to insure the survival and rescue of the orphans by Christmas Eve…

But the pilot isn’t having it. No way. No how. He’d rather dance with a grizzly or wrestle a puma than give his heart over to a sly, conniving, wily do-gooder. He has no intention of playing the hero. Rebecca has other ideas—lots of them! All artful and disingenuous—one of which is bound to work…she hopes. Read more on Amazon.

Water Over Blood

Darkness. Pain. Loss.   This is what seventeen-year-old Haley feels when waking up in a damp, gloomy cave. She doesn’t know who or where she is, nor does she remember that she is Eyid-emos, a descendant of the God of Air. All she knows is the dark angel, Dane, who comes to her rescue, making her feel safe and protected. It’s from Dane, descendant of the God of Fire, that she learns she’s looking for the lost stones of power to end the war between the nature gods.

But the safe feeling doesn’t last long. Dark memories of a gorgeous blond guy name Tuggin begin to haunt her, and Haley realizes on some levels she’s fighting against remembering. There’s something both endearing and frightening about the hall-god with the cold, blue eyes, this stranger who she remembers as being both kind and brutal, who’s one of the hated witches on Eyidora, and who holds deadly secrets. When Haley and Dane meet with Tuggin and his companions, everything changes as they hunt for the Water Eyid stone. They need to work as a team to end the war, but suspicion and rivalries run rampant in the group. Will Haley be betrayed by the one person she trusts the most? Read more on Amazon.

What’s that Tug I Feel

What’s that Tug I Feel

NPR was playing on my car radio, a rarity in itself as I prefer the car quiet, yet what a stroke of fortune that I did tune in that day. Not one, but two different bits of programming that fascinated me were broadcast in the short time it took to deliver photos to some of our clients.

The woman’s voice that caught my attention initially was that of a native from Fort Peck Reservation in northwestern Montana, home to two Indian Nations, Assiniboine and Sioux. She was being interviewed about their receiving 68 head of pure strain buffalo from Yellowstone National Park, the only pure strain existent in this country. After a six year struggle to obtain them, the buffalo were coming to Fort Peck. Big deal may have been most listeners next thought, until she spoke, that is. Her  words clutched at me, goosed bumped my arms and caused a shiver to run through me.

With quiet intensity, she spoke in a hushed tone explaining how these were the same buffalo through lineage that felt the sting of her great, great, great, great grandfather’s arrow, trod down the same grass that cushioned her elders moccasins and  shared their muscle, blood, bone and spirit with her people. They lived under the same sky as her elders, breathed the same air. In this unbroken line to the past, the past moved forward as if it were present. That is as sacred as a connection can get for people who still carry in their hearts awareness that all is One.

For those of us not native, the arrival of the buffalo to this native nation might be akin to going up to the attic and finding a trunk you’d not noticed before, opening it and not only discovering old photo albums and artifacts from your past, but also momentarily becoming embedded in that history not intellectually but viscerally, feeling it as your blood and bone.

And then, there it was, as I always feel it, that tug that makes me feel like I just came to know something but can’t yet put it in words. Yet it is as real as that of an attention-seeking child’s pull on my sleeve.  What’s that all about ? I wondered, only to be distracted as Garrison Keillor came on next.

He began introducing Lincoln, Nebraska where his show was coming from. One of the local references he mentioned was the Ogallala Aquifer from which the present- day residents of the area get their drinking water. It is a huge aquifer, one of the world’s largest, and it underlies an ogalala aquiferarea of approximately 174,000 mi² (450,000 km²) in portions of eight states: (South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Texas). The Ogallala, like most aquifers, if it does refresh itself at all, does so so slowly that it is safe to say the drinking water Garrison was referring to could have touched the lips of a saber toothed tiger roaming through the vast grasslands of the Pleistocene Epoch, a time before the last glaciation when the world was a vast savanna (even the Mediterranean Sea was a grassland) and huge mammals roamed various continents. I’m not saying the tiger drank from the same aquifer. I am saying that the water that dripped off his chin could be in your glass, that the Pleistocene we relegate to past history is still present in this strange way, and who knows how many such threads of the past punch through into our present.

Then came that tug again, an unsettling but captivating pull on my gut, that sense that there is a mystery around me that fills me with awe while making me question if what I knew about past and present I really knew at all. So says Jorge Luis Borges:

Time is the substance from which I am made.
Time is a river which carries me along, but I am the river;
it is a tiger that devours me, but I am the tiger;
it is a fire that consumes me, but I am the fire.

Time is the wonder that baffles us all.
