The Camel Knows the Way is a candid account of an extraordinary journey that pulls the reader into an irresistible, sometimes agonizing and ultimately thrilling quest for God. Lorna Kelly's odyssey from middle class British school girl to glamorous, New York Sotheby's auctioneer to volunteer in the slums of Calcutta is a trek that is sobering, inspiring and breathtakingly compelling. En route Kelly confronts alcoholism, divorce, a growing sense of spiritual disquiet and her own "dark night." What emerges from that spiritual thirst is a buoyant and compelling affirmation of our common humanity.

King of the World : Muhammad Ali and the Rise of an American Hero by David Remnick "Click me to Order"

King of the World : Muhammad Ali and the Rise of an American Hero by David Remnick

In extraordinary detail, Remnick depicts Ali as a creation of his own imagination as we follow the willful and mercurial young Cassius Clay from his boyhood and watch him hone and shape himself to a figure who would eventually command center stage in one of the most volatile decades in our history. To Remnick it seems clear that Ali's greatest accomplishment is to prove beyond a doubt that not only is it possible to challenge the implacable forces of the establishment (the noir-ish, gangster-ridden fight game and the ethos of a whole country) but, with the right combination of conviction and talent, to triumph over these forces. --Fred Haefele


Into Thin Air : A Personal Account of the Mount Everest Disaster by Jon Krakauer "Click me to Order"

Into Thin Air : A Personal Account of the Mount Everest Disaster by Jon Krakauer

Into Thin Air is a riveting first-hand account of a catastrophic expedition up Mount Everest. In March 1996, Outside magazine sent veteran journalist and seasoned climber Jon Krakauer on an expedition led by celebrated Everest guide Rob Hall. Despite the expertise of Hall and the other leaders, by the end of summit day eight people were dead. Krakauer's book is at once the story of the ill-fated adventure and an analysis of the factors leading up to its tragic end. Written within months of the events it chronicles, Into Thin Air clearly evokes the majestic Everest landscape. As the journey up the mountain progresses, Krakauer puts it in context by recalling the triumphs and perils of other Everest trips throughout history. The author's own anguish over what happened on the mountain is palpable as he leads readers to ponder timeless questions.


Honor's Voice : The Transformation of Abraham Lincoln by Douglas L. Wilson "Click me to Order"

Honor's Voice : The Transformation of Abraham Lincoln by Douglas L. Wilson

After 130-some years of Lincoln appraisals, how can a scholar, especially one as extraordinarily careful and fair as Wilson, create a startlingly new Lincoln? Wilson's achievement stems in part from the respect the culture has acquired for oral history... and from his having put together with his colleague Rodney O. Davis ... the definitive edition of the reminiscences of about 250 people who knew Lincoln.... This book establishes Wilson as the leading historian of the young and private Lincoln.


"Click me to Order"

Endurance : Shackleton's Incredible Voyage In the summer of 1914, Sir Ernest Shackleton set off aboard the Endurance bound for the South Atlantic. The goal of his expedition was to cross the Antarctic overland, but more than a year later, and still half a continent away from the intended base, the Endurance was trapped in ice and eventually was crushed. For five months Shackleton and his crew survived on drifting ice packs in one of the most savage regions of the world before they were finally able to set sail again in one of the ship's lifeboats. Alfred Lansing's Endurance: Shackleton's Incredible Voyage is a white-knuckle account of this astounding odyssey.


Crazy Horse "Buy the Book Today!"

Crazy Horse by Sandoz, Mari Sandoz

As part of an undergraduate course on revolutionary heroes. As I came to the end of the book, I put it down so that Crazy Horse would still be alive in my imagination. I finished it some months later. Ten years ago I read it to my son when he was 6. This is great book about a remarkable man.~ Robert Larson


The Man Who Listens to Horses "Buy the Book Today!"

The Man Who Listens to Horses by Monty Roberts, Lawrence Scanlan (Introduction), Lucy Grealy(Contributor)

Roberts's descriptions of "joining up," as he calls it with horses--as well as with the deer who cavort on his California farm like so many hyperintelligent Bambis--are inspirational in the best sense of the word. Surprisingly, though, it took him long years to persuade most of the humans in his life that pain and punishment are not the way to go. Indeed, the author expends many a page on past mistakes and disasters, familial and professional. Yet The Man Who Listens to Horses remains a powerfully positive document--and not just for Mr. Ed. Best of all, when it comes to his life's work, Roberts is far more practical than mystical. Instead of portraying himself as Equus's messiah, he'd rather share his hard-won knowledge. Having overcome years of rejection and ridicule, the author is certainly not short in the self-esteem department, as some passages in this book demonstrate. No matter. He always checks his ego before entering the corral. --Kerry Fried

First You Have to Row a Little Boat : Reflections on Life & Living by Richard Bode

Hitchcock by Francois Truffant, Helen G. Scott (Contributor), Francois Truffaut (Preface) "Click me to Order"

Hitchcock by Francois TruffantHelen G. Scott (Contributor), Francois Truffaut (Preface)

Any book-length interview with Alfred Hitchcock is valuable, but considering that this volume's interlocutor is François Truffaut, the conversation is remarkable indeed. Here is a rare opportunity to eavesdrop on two cinematic masters from very different backgrounds as they cover each of Hitch's films in succession. Though this book was initially published in 1967 when Hitchcock was still active, Truffaut later prepared a revised edition that covered the final stages of his career. It's difficult to think of a more informative or entertaining introduction to Hitchcock's art, interests, and peculiar sense of humor. The book is a storehouse of insight and witticism, including the master's impressions of a classic like Rear Window ("I was feeling very creative at the time, the batteries were well charged"), his technical insight into Psycho's shower scene ("the knife never touched the body; it was all done in the [editing]"), and his ruminations on flops such as Under Capricorn ("If I were to make another picture in Australia today, I'd have a policeman hop into the pocket of a kangaroo and yell 'Follow that car!'"). This is one of the most delightful film books in print. --Raphael Shargel
