7 BRYSON, BILL ONE SUMMER: AMERICA, 1927
Anchor Books 2014 0767919416 / 9780767919418 PAPERBACK . 
Anchor Books 6/3/2014. New paperback. The summer of 1927 began with one of the signature events of the twentieth century: on May 21, 1927, Charles Lindbergh became the first man to cross the Atlantic by plane nonstop, and when he landed in Le Bourget airfield near Paris, he ignited an explosion of worldwide rapture and instantly became the most famous person on the planet. Meanwhile, the titanically talented Babe Ruth was beginning his assault on the home run record, which would culminate on September 30 with his sixtieth blast, one of the most resonant and durable records in sports history. In between those dates a Queens housewife named Ruth Snyder and her corset-salesman lover garroted her husband, leading to a murder trial that became a huge tabloid sensation. Alvin 'Shipwreck' Kelly sat atop a flagpole in Newark, New Jersey, for twelve days—a new record. The American South was clobbered by unprecedented rain and by flooding of the Mississippi basin, a great human disaster, the relief efforts for which were guided by the uncannily able and insufferably pompous Herbert Hoover. Calvin Coolidge interrupted an already leisurely presidency for an even more relaxing three-month vacation in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The gangster Al Capone tightened his grip on the illegal booze business through a gaudy and murderous reign of terror and municipal corruption. The first true 'talking picture,' Al Jolson’s The Jazz Singer, was filmed and forever changed the motion picture industry. The four most powerful central bankers on earth met in secret session on a Long Island estate and made a fateful decision that virtually guaranteed a future crash and depression. All this and much, much more transpired in that epochal summer of 1927, and Bill Bryson captures its outsized personalities, exciting events, and occasional just plain weirdness with his trademark vividness, eye for telling detail, and delicious humor. In that year America stepped out onto the world stage as the main event, and One Summer transforms it all into narrative nonfiction of the highest order.

20 HORWITZ, TONY SPYING ON THE SOUTH: AN ODYSSEY ACROSS THE AMERICAN DIVIDE
Penguin Press 2019 1101980281 / 9781101980286 HARDCOVER in Brand New jacket. 
Penguin Press 5/14/2019. New hardcover. in Brand New jacket. Later printing. Store pick: A few years before the Civil War Frederick Law Olmstead, a young journalist trying to find his place in life before discovering his calling as a landscape architect (Central Park, Audubon Park), was hired by a New York newspaper to travel across the South and report his observations. In 2016 Tony Horowitz retraces Olmstead's journey as much as possible to compare and contrast 160 years of history. Thriving industrial towns have fallen on hard times. Boring little cities have thrived. Some backwoods areas are still backwoods. Texas has boomed and mushroomed. A well-written and insightful work that should intrigue anyone interested in Southern history. -Jim McFarlane, store volunteer and local author
