The epic struggle for survival in America's untamed West. BLACK POWDER For the brave and the strong there was freedom to be found in the majestic Rocky Mountains-freedom that renegades would steal for a few pieces of gold. When mountain man Nathaniel King and his family were threatened by a band of bloodthirsty slavers, they faced enemies like none they'd ever battled. But the sun hadn't risen on the day when the mighty Nate King would let his kin be taken captive without a fight to the death. TRAIL'S END Daring frontiersmen like Nate King risked everything to carve a new world from the savage wilderness, and they were no strangers to danger. So when some friendly Crows asked Nate to help them rescue a missing girl from a band of murderous Lakota warriors, he set off on a journey that would take him to the end of the trail-and possibly the end of his life.
To survive in the untamed wilderness a man needs all the friends he can get. No one can battle the continual dangers for long on his own. Even a fearless frontiersman like Nate King needs help now and then and he's always ready to give it when it's needed. So when an elderly Shoshone warrior comes to Nate asking for help, Nate agrees to lend a hand-no matter how strange the request may be. The old warrior knows he doesn't have long to live and he wants to die in the remote canyon where his true love was killed many years before, slain by a giant bear straight out of Shoshone myth. No Shoshone will dare accompany the old warrior, so he and Nate will brave the dreaded canyon alone. And as Nate soon learns the hard way, some legends are far better left undisturbed.
The riveting adventures of a mountain man and his quest to live free in the untamed country of frontier America.

A guide to bold, authentic Thai cooking from Andy Ricker, the chef and owner of the wildly popular and widely lauded Pok Pok restaurants. After decades spent traveling throughout Thailand, Andy Ricker wanted to bring the country's famed street food stateside. In 2005 he opened Pok Pok, so named for the sound a pestle makes when it strikes a clay mortar, in an old shack in a residential neighborhood of Portland, Oregon. Ricker's traditional take on Thai food soon drew the notice of the New York Times and Gourmet magazine, establishing him as a culinary star. Now, with his first cookbook, Ricker tackles head-on the myths that keep people from making Thai food at home: that it's too spicy for the American palate or too difficult to source ingredients. Fifty knockout recipes for simple and delicious Thai dishes range from Grilled Pork Collar with Spicy Dipping Sauce and Iced Greens to Andy's now-famous Vietnamese Fish Sauce Wings. Including a primer in Thai techniques and flavor profiles, with tips for modifying local produce to mimic Thai flavors, Pok Pok makes authentic Thai food accessible to any home cook.
