    Few people realize that the Comanche Indians were the greatest warring tribe in American history. Their 40-year battle with settlers held up the development of the new nation. Empire of the Summer Moon tells of the rise and fall of this fierce, powerful, and proud tribe, and begins in 1836 with the kidnapping of a lovely nine-year-old girl with cornflower blue eyes named Cynthia Ann Parker.

    Overall

    This was a really good book. I thoroughly enjoyed it. While it was billed as a story of Quannah Parker of the Comanche, it took in quite a bit of history of all the Plains Indians. Very detailed sotries if living conditions for these native Americans and the changes they experienced at the hands of the white man. I wouldl endorse it for anyone who wishes to study the culture of the Plains Indians. Quannah's story occupied maybe the last quarter of the book. It was easily supported by other resources I have read about Quannah. A fascinating story!

  • A Reliable Wife

    Story

    When a wealthy man first meets his mail-order bride in 1907, he realizes this statuesque beauty is anything but a "simple missionary's daughter." But he doesn't know of her devious plan to leave Wisconsin as a rich widow. Nor does she know of the furious demons he longs to unleash during the lonely months of snowbound isolation.

    Richard says: "Intriguing story but only average writing"
    "An Unreliable writer"
    Overall

    This is a very confusing book. I did not enjoy it. A rather long and boring tale of marital and domestic troubles and tribulations in the upper Midwest of the early 1900's. Never did make the connection with "A Reliable Wife"; in fact she was really quite unreliable. Depressing in it's mood and outcome.

  • Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Want to join the “superhumans”? Luckily you don’t have to run to catch up with them, thanks to McDougall’s and Sanders’ inspiring (and motivating) journey through history, science, physiology, health, entertaining characters and unlikely friendships. Full of incredible characters, amazing athletic achievements, cutting-edge science, and, most of all, pure inspiration, Born to Run is an epic adventure.

    Corey says: "Amazing read - even for non-runners"
    "Runners will love it."
    Overall

    A good book. Very interesting plot line. Combination of technical, physiological, and entertainment issues. Learned quite a lot about ultra runners.

  • Rising Tide: The Great Mississippi Flood of 1927 and How It Changed America

    An American epic of science, politics, race, honor, high society, and the Mississippi River, Rising Tide tells the riveting and nearly forgotten story of the greatest natural disaster this country has ever known, the Mississippi flood of 1927. The river inundated the homes of nearly one million people, helped elect Huey Long governor and made Herbert Hoover president, drove hundreds of thousands of blacks north, and transformed American society and politics forever.

    Mary says: "lessons from yesterday for today"
    "Fantastic"
    Overall

    A great story. Very interesting character development; plot development was well conceived. Some parts made you feel you were there. Recommended for history buffs.
