In this biography about Edward Curtis, Egan reallybrings out the drive Curtis had to record for posteritythe customs, family life and traditions of NativeAmericans before it all disappeared.  I think we allhave seen one of Edward's photos at one time oranother; they are moving & unforgettable. Curtissacrificed his own family & health for his vision & weare all fortunate that he did.  A great read.  -Patty

One of my favorite historical novels of the last year, written from Anne Morrow Lindbergh's perspective.  We see what a strong, loyal, loving woman she was.  Anne grew up a shy young woman first thrown into fame as the wife of the world-famous Charles Lindbergh, then with the kidnapping and death of her first son.  Her strength and character were the guiding posts of her life, especially in her relationship with her husband.  This is an absolutely wonderful, fascinating novel - a must read!  -Patty

For a quick, fast-paced summer read, you can't beat one of Coulter's FBI thrillers.  Married agents Savich and Sherlock travel to San Francisco to help investigate the shooting of their friend Judge Hunt.  So sit back, relax, and have some "brain candy". -Patty
