Paperback book. The Bola Tie has become as much of a Southwestern way of dress ad cowboy boots and the ten-gallon hat. It is now the official neckwear of the state of Arizona. The book gives a history of the Bola, pictures the different styles and types, and just an interesting and informative book about this men's dress accessory.

From back of book: "Most people who write comic dialogue for minors demonstrate surprisingly little feel for - or faith in- the original source material, that is, childhood, in all its unfettered and winsome glory. It is in this respect that Bill Watterson has proved as unusual as his feckless creations, Calvin and Hobbes. Watterson is the reporter who's gotten it right, childhood as it actually is."

Carolyn Lockhart (1871-1962) lived a life as colorful and as successful as her best-selling western adventure novels or her widely quoted newspaper columns. She attracted national attention as the owner-editor of the Cody Enterprise. H.L. Mencken praised her outspokenness as an investigative report and as a critic of the Prohibition. From her Kansas childhood to her early success as a reporter in Boston and Philadelphia, to the excitement of "making it big" as a writer-journalist, civic leader and rancher based mainly in Cody,WY, this is a portrait of a woman who broke conventions and made her own mark in a frontier setting.

This combines two adventures of Norton, the cat, whose feline charms and unique relationship with the author delighted cat lovers - and even cat haters - everywhere as he traipsed around the globe. Along the way to exotic and uncatlike places - from walking the beaches of Fire Island to taking the Concord to Paris where the staff of the ritzy hotel tends to his every whim - Norton takes in the world around him and has a profound effect on all who come in contact with him. A delightful story that everyone should enjoy.

Edward Adrain Wilson is perhaps the most famous native son of Cheltenham, England. In the early years of the 20th century, he was one of the major influences and personalities of the heroic age of Antarctic exploration and has also been recognized as one of the top ranking ornithologists and naturalists in the United Kingdom during this period. He was also one of the last great scientific expedition artists and many of his drawings are included in the book of the wildlife in Antarctica.


Chester W. Nimitz: Admiral of the Hills
Review Date: 6/7/2008


This is in part a story of the conflict between Nimitz and MacArthur. It is well written in a style that is clear and simple. The well-documented account of his childhood and boyhood really explains Nimitz, the man. His virtues of ruggedness, patient endurance, self-reliance, resourcefulness and decency were all passed on the the rearing of the child as also was the old grandfather infusion of salt water into the boy's blood. This is the story of a great American.

Rhoda Yee learned to cook in China. Like generations before her, she has something grand and useful to teach: everyday Cantonese village cuisine. This book translates Chinese cooking methods into American kitchen idioms without violating authenticity.

As I have visited Monet's garden and home in France, I was especially interested in this book. After reading about the struggles he encountered as an inspiring artist, I now more fully appreciate his marvelous art. If you like French Impressionist art, you will certainly enjoy this wonderful account of Claude and Camille's life.

This book was certainly not what I thought it would be! How it got that name is beyond me! In fact, to me it was so uninteresting, that I could only get through about one-third of it before I gave up. I hope others will enjoy it more than I did.
