With Musket and Tomahawk is a vivid account of the American and British struggles in the sprawling wilderness region of the northeast during the Revolutionary War. Combining strategic, tactical, and personal detail, this book describes how the patriots of the recently organized Northern Army defeated England's massive onslaught of 1777, thereby all but ensuring America's independence.

Six months after Pearl Harbor, the seemingly invincible Imperial Japanese Navy prepared a decisive blow against the United States. After sweeping through Asia and the South Pacific, Japan's military targeted the tiny atoll of Midway, an ideal launching pad for the invasion of Hawaii and beyond. The United States Navy would be waiting for them. Thanks to cutting-edge code-breaking technology, tactical daring, and a huge stroke of luck, the Americans under Admiral Chester W. Nimitz dealt the Japanese navy its first major defeat of the war.

Navajo Nation Police Officer Bernadette Manualito witnesses the cold-blooded shooting of someone very close to her. With the victim fighting for his life, the entire squad and the local FBI office are hell-bent on catching the gunman. Bernie, too, wants in on the investigation, despite regulations forbidding eyewitness involvement. But that doesn't mean she's going to sit idly by, especially when her husband, Sergeant Jim Chee, is in charge of finding the shooter. Bernie and Chee discover that a cold case involving his former boss and partner, retired Inspector Joe Leaphorn, may hold the key.

Would you consider the audio edition of Spider Woman's Daughter to be better than the print version?

I like the Audio version because I travel in the car and it is much easier to listen.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I like a good mystery and learning about other cultures. Anne Hillerman does an excellent job of giving insight the Navajo Culture through the eyes of Bernadette Manualito, much the way her father did in Chee and Leaphorn. I have traveled through that part of the country and it makes listening to the books more realistic.

Any additional comments?

I can't wait for her next books to come out.

Killing Lincoln not only tells the story of the assassination of President Lincoln but give you the back ground and the what else was happening in the days before the event. He present the facts in a clear and concise manner. Bill O'Reilly read of the book is done with a passion that makes you take notice.

A great work and well worth reading. I have recommended this book to several of my friends.
