One of Ours

by Willa Cather

The son of a prosperous farmer, Claude Wheeler's future is laid out for him as clear and monotonous as the Nebraska sky--a few semesters at the local Christian college followed by marriage and a lifetime spent worrying about the price of wheat. Many young men would be happy to find themselves in Claude's shoes, but his focus is on the horizon, and on the nagging sense that out there, past the farthest reaches of the Great Plains and beyond the boundaries of convention, his true destiny awaits. When the United States finally enters the war raging in Europe, Claude makes the first, and greatest, decision of his life: He answers the call.<P><P> Pulitzer Prize Winner

The Second Saladin

by Stephen Hunter

In the windswept sands of the middle east, Paul Chardy fought side by side with Ulu Beg: one, a charismatic, high-strung CIA covert warrior, the other a ferocious freedom fighter. Then Chardy fell into the hands of the enemy, and Beg was betrayed. Now the two men are about to meet again. Beg has come over the Mexican border under a hail of bullets -- determined to assassinate a leading American political figure and avenge his peoples betrayal. The CIA wants Chardy to stop the hit. Chardy wants to save Beg's life. Between the two men is a tragic past, a failed mission, and a woman who knew them in war -- and who knows their secrets now. Around both men is a conspiracy of lies and violence that reaches back to the cold war. But as Beg move4s in for his kill and as Chardy breaks loose from his handlers, a tragic truth begins to emerge: somewhere, someone wants both men to die.
