From the authority on baseball research and statistics comes a vast and fascinating compendium of unique baseball lists and records. The SABR Baseball List & Record Book is an expansive collection of pitching, hitting, fielding, home run, team, and rookie records not available online or in any other book. This is a treasure trove of baseball history for statistically minded baseball fans that's also packed with intriguing marginalia. For instance, on July 25, 1967, Chicago's Ken Berry ended Game Two of a doubleheader against Cleveland with a home run in the bottom of the sixteenth inning -- Chicago's second game-winning homer of the day. The comprehensive lists include Most Career Home Runs by Two Brothers (Tommie and Hank Aaron have 768), Most Seasons with 15 or More Wins (Cy Young and Greg Maddux each have 18), and Highest On Base Percentage in a Season by a Rookie (listing every rookie above .400). Unlike other record books that only list the record holders -- say, most RBI by a rookie, held by Ted Williams with 145 -- SABR details every rookie to reach 100 RBI. Other record books might note the last pitcher in each league to steal home; here SABR has included every pitcher to do it. The book also includes a number of idiosyncratic features, such as a rundown of every player who has hit a triple and then stolen home, or every reliever who has won two games in one day. Many of the lists include a comments column for key historical notes and entertaining trivia (Bob Horner hit four home runs in a 1986 game, but his team lost). This is a must-have for every fan's library. Edited by Lyle Spatz, Chairman of the Baseball Records Committee for SABR
Since childhood, Sabriel has lived outside the walls of the Old Kingdom, away from the power of Free Magic, and away from the Dead who refuse to stay dead. But now her father, the Mage Abhorson, is missing, and Sabriel must cross into that world to find him. With Mogget, whose feline form hides a powerful, perhaps malevolent spirit, and Touchstone, a young Charter Mage, Sabriel travels deep into the Old Kingdom. There she confronts an evil that threatens much more than her life'and comes face to face with her own hidden destiny. . . Garth Nix's first young adult novel, Sabriel was recently nominated for the Aurealis Award for Excellence in Science Fiction in Australia.
Sent to a boarding school in Ancelstierre as a young child, Sabriel has had little experience with the random power of Free Magic or the Dead who refuse to stay dead in the Old Kingdom. But during her final semester, her father, the Abhorsen, goes missing, and Sabriel knows she must enter the Old Kingdom to find him. She soon finds companions in Mogget, a cat whose aloof manner barely conceals its malevolent spirit, and Touchstone, a young Charter Mage long imprisoned by magic, now free in body but still trapped by painful memories. As the three travel deep into the Old Kingdom, threats mount on all sides. And every step brings them closer to a battle that will pit them against the true forces of life and death--and bring Sabriel face-to-face with her own destiny.

I'm 16, I'm a witch, and I still have to go to school? This is no time for jokes! I just learned the terrible truth: I'm a witch. Here I thought I was just another teenager worried about making friends in my new school and how to get a guy I really like, Harvey, to notice me. That changed fast enough when my two aunts gave me a black pot and an old book, The Discovery of Magic, and my cat started giving me advice. I'm still trying to control my pointing finger and my runaway mind but between dead frogs, my worst enemy, Libby, and pineapples . . . but I'm getting ahead of myself.

I can't turn back time, and I'm on my own when it comes to love. Of course, there are some pretty neat things I can do-but that's where the trouble always begins. . . .

In 1920 Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, two Italian immigrants and devout anarchists, were accused of robbery and murder. Their subsequent trial and execution captivated the world and exposed many of the cultural and political tensions of 1920s America. Sacco and Vanzetti's supporters claimed the two anarchists had been persecuted for their beliefs and not their actions, while their detractors saw proof of the country's ability to protect itself from dangerous foreign elements. Michael Topp's unique collection of documents examines both sides and provides a clear presentation of the trial while emphasizing the broad historical context in which it was conducted. An interpretive introductory essay, document headnotes, a chronology, and questions for consideration provide further pedagogical support. A bibliographic essay and a brief discussion of artistic productions based on the trial are also included.
Political activists Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were framed and executed for murder in a wave of anti-immigrant hysteria in Boston in the 1920s. Their story is a salutary one, illustrating the way in which anarchists and immigrants were painted as terrorists -- a grim reminder of the consequences of using fear as a political weapon. Eventually pardoned in 1977 by Governor Dukakis, Sacco and Vanzetti's case sparked an unprecedented international defence campaign backed by writers, artists, politicians and musicians. It remains one of the most famous political trials in history.
TREACHERY Spies, blackmail, and the shocking abduction of two beautiful women threaten to destroy Renno, the White Indian, in the eyes of his people.
From the days when the Seneca first roamed a virgin continent, the manitous--powerful spirits of the Indian nations--warned of danger. Now the prophecy comes to pass. Voodoo drums beat in the exotic isle of St. Domingue, and the evil has spread to America. A witch's charms and potions lure RENNO's innocent son, LITTLE HAWK. And Renno's beautiful daughter, RENNA, claims her destiny of horror, pride, and courage. POWER OF LOVE--President Thomas Jefferson knows the name and skill of Renno. To this proud sachem now comes a difficult duty: to save the Louisiana Territory for America... and to allow his sweet daughter to follow her heart. As Renno heeds his vision quest to travel a path of battle, Renna must follow her trail of desire and honor--to become a woman who chooses not tears but a totem of love, not surrender but a tomahawk of blood.
For all the moons of his manhood, REMNO, the white Indian, has ruled the Seneca with his might and wisdom. Then comes a day when the sun turns dark...a day when his people betray him and the bidding of the manitous. Decreeing that the magnificent shaman El-i-chi has broken a tribal taboo by marrying his precious Rose, the matrons cast her out. Now Renno must choose between his nation and the brother to whom he owes his love and life. Honor as unbreakable as steel decrees Renno's path--a dangerous road into the white man's treacherous world for a proud chieftain and the son whose birthright is only a bitter memory.
In Sackett, Louis L'Amour introduces readers to a wandering man with a desire to settle down and build a good life. Hard circumstances have made William Tell Sackett a drifter, but now he hungers for a place he can't name yet knows he has to find. South of the Tetons he comes upon a ghost of a trail that leads him through a keyhole pass into a lonely, alien, yet beautiful valley--a valley that holds a fortune in gold.Then he finds an even greater treasure: beautiful Ange Kerry, a courageous and resourceful woman. Yet the harsh ways it takes to preserve his claim and his life could be the one thing that drives Ange away forever.From the Paperback edition.
In The Sackett Brand, Louis L'Amour spins the story of a courageous man who must face overwhelming odds to track down a killer.Tell Sackett and his bride, Ange, came to Arizona to build a home and start a family. But on Black Mesa something goes terribly wrong. Tell is ambushed and badly injured. When he finally manages to drag himself back to where he left Ange, she is gone. Desperate, cold, hungry, and with no way to defend himself, Tell is stalked like a wounded animal. Hiding from his attackers, his rage and frustration mounting, he tries to figure out who the men are, why they are trying to kill him, and what has happened to his wife. Discovering the truth will be risky. And when he finally does, it will be their turn to run.From the Paperback edition.
Little did Louis L'Amour realize back in 1960 when he published The Daybreakers, a novel about two brothers who came west after the Civil War, that he had begun creating what would become perhaps North America's most widely followed literary family: the Sacketts. The stories of ten generations of Sackett men and women as they forged westward from tyranny-wracked seventeenth-century England across the American continent have captivated readers for three decades through seventeen novels with nearly forty millions copies in print. The traditions and adventures of this family of rugged individualists who stand indomitably united when any Sackett is in trouble have inspired country songs, a popular television miniseries starring Tom Selleck (as Orrin Sackett) and Sam Elliot (as Tell Sackett), thousands of reader queries--and now, a rare full-length work of non-fiction by the worlds' all-time best-selling frontier novelist.In a 60 Minutes profile in which he hailed Louis L'Amour as "our professor emeritus of how the West was won," correspondent Morley Safer observed that "his plots may be fiction but the details therein are fact." The Sackett Companion is the author's long-savored opportunity to present the research and probe the factors behind his Sackett fiction--novel by novel--and to elaborate on their real and fictional characters, their geography and locales, and their historical eras in encyclopedia-like detail.In this book, subtitled A Personal Guide To The Sackett Novels, L'Amour takes us on a guided tour of his imagination to introduce us to the never-before-told sources and inspirations for these stories and the people and places that populate them. He retraces some of his travels in which he has walked the land the Sacketts walk, reliving such personal memories as the street fight he had on a hot dusty morning in New Mexico that ultimately led to the birth of the Sacketts.From the Trade Paperback edition.
