Randy Wayne White is acclaimed as "wildly inventive" (The San Diego Union-Tribune), "a wonderful writer" (Paul Theroux), "a fine storyteller" (Peter Matthiessen), and "the rightful heir to John D. MacDonald" (The Tampa Tribune-Times). In his fourth Doc Ford novel, he delivers a wicked thriller that sends government agent turned marine biologist Doc Ford into dangerous new waters as a Florida fishing dispute escalates into a deadly war that reaches across the ocean...

In the West, nearly all the men could shoot, whether they were a farmer, a banker, a lawyer, or a butcher. Elmer was none of these; he was a street-tough brawler and an investigator that uncovered injustice and fought for what is right. Sometimes, justice had to work outside of the law, and that is just what Elmer was - he was Outside Justice.

The works of J.R.R. Tolkien are quite possibly the most widely read pieces of literature written in the 20th century. But as Professor Michael Drout illuminates in this engaging course of lectures, Tolkien's writings are built upon a centuries-old literary tradition that developed in Europe and is quite uniquely Western in its outlook and style. Drout explores how that tradition still resonates with us to this day, even if many Modernist critics would argue otherwise. He begins the course with the allegory of a tower....

In the 1920s the richest people per capita in the world were members of the Osage Indian nation in Oklahoma. After oil was discovered beneath their land, they rode in chauffeured automobiles, built mansions, and sent their children to study in Europe. Then, one by one, the Osage began to be killed off. The family of an Osage woman, Mollie Burkhart, became a prime target. Her relatives were shot and poisoned. And it was just the beginning, as more and more members of the tribe began to die under mysterious circumstances.
