Fifty Acres and a Poodle: A Story of Love, Livestock, and Finding Myself on a Farm

by Jeanne Marie Laskas

Jeanne Marie Laskas had a dream of fleeing her otherwise happy urban life for fresh air and open space -- a dream she would discover was about something more than that. But she never expected her fantasy to come true -- until a summer afternoon's drive in the country. That's when she and her boyfriend, Alex -- owner of Marley the poodle -- stumble upon the place she thought existed only in her dreams. This pretty-as-a-picture-postcard farm with an Amish barn, a chestnut grove, and breathtaking vistas is real . . . and for sale. And it's where she knows her future begins. But buying a postcard -- fifty acres of scenery -- and living on it are two entirely different matters. With wit and wisdom, Laskas chronicles the heartwarming and heartbreaking stories of the colorful two- and four-legged creatures she encounters on Sweetwater Farm. Against a backdrop of brambles, a satellite dish, and sheep, she tells a tender, touching, and hilarious tale about life, love, and the unexpected complications of having your dream come true.

Fifty Best American Short Stories

by Martha Foley

From the book: From fifty years of The Best American Short Stories, Martha Foley has reaped a golden harvest of fifty stories from the outstanding hundreds that appeared in the annual volumes of this most distinguished and long-lived of short-story anthologies. The result is a rich creme de la creme collection, where the common denominator is enduring quality. Arranged chronologically, the stories reveal the enormous vigor and variety maintained by our nation's writers through the eruptive changes of half a century. Here are the established masters of American letters-among them Anderson, Lather, Dreiser, Faulkner, Fitzgerald, Hemingway, Steinbeck, Wolfe-writing in the period limned by the First World War, the blazing twenties, and the upheavals of the Depression. They are followed by the newer post-World War II voices of such writers as James Baldwin, Bernard Malamud, Philip Roth, John Updike. Also presented, with a fresh sense of discovery, are a number of undeservedly "forgotten" stories, long out of print. This many-faceted volume will provide hours of pure pleasure for both the serious and the casual reader. It is a book destined to be wellthumbed and well-loved, with an honored place on the bookshelves of home and library alike.

by Bryan Collier Jabari Asim

After emancipation, Booker began a five-hundred-mile journey, mostly on foot, to Hampton Institute, taking his first of many steps towards a college degree.

The young slave who once waited outside of the schoolhouse would one day become a legendary educator of freedmen. Award-winning artist Bryan Collier captures the hardship and the spirit of one of the most inspiring figures in American history, bringing to life Booker T. Washington's journey to learn, to read, and to realize a dream.

Fifty-seven Heaven

by Lonnie Cruse

It was no surprise to anyone when somebody strangled Kitty Bloodworth's extremely irritating cousin, Will Ann Lloyd. The woman got on the wrong side of practically every single resident in their small town of Metropolis, Illinois. But it was a big surprise when the Bloodworths discovered Cousin Will Ann's body tangled in jumper cables and stuffed into the trunk of their beloved 1957 Chevy, affectionately known as Sadie. Which of Kitty and Jack's nearest and dearest gained access to the Bloodworths' fortress-like barn? Why did victim Will Ann Lloyd hire a private investigator to follow her own son? Why did she blow into Farley's Cafeteria shortly before her murder and interrupt the meeting of the local antique car club by calling Kitty's youngest daughter, Sunny, a sneak and a tramp? Can the Bloodworths play a real-live game of "chicken" with a killer and avoid a head-on collision? Fifty-Seven Heaven is a humorous cozy set in the small town of Metropolis, Illinois, where everyone knows everyone else. One by one, the Bloodworths' family members, old friends, and antique car club buddies produce unbreakable alibis, proving none of them could have killed Will Ann Lloyd. Yet one of them must have.

The Fight

by Norman Mailer

In 1975 in Kinshasa, Zaire, at the virtual center of Africa, two African-American boxers were paid five million dollars apiece to fight with other until one was declared the winner. One was Muhammad Ali, the aging but irrepressible "professor of boxing" who vowed to reclaim the championship he had lost. The other was George Foreman, who was as taciturn as Ali was voluble and who kept his hands in his pockets "the way a hunter lays his rifle back into his velvet case". Observing them was Norman Mailer, whose grasp of the titanic battle's feints and strategies -- and whose sensitivity to the deepened symbolism -- make this book a masterpiece of the literature of sport.
