The author, a wildlife ranger in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, shares "true stories from 'an extraordinary landscape populated with befuddled bears, hormonally-crazed elk, homicidal wild boars, hopelessly timid wolves, and nine million tourists, some of whom are clueless.' In Kim DeLozier's world when sedated wild black bears wake up unexpectedly in the back seat of a helicopter in mid-flight, or in his car as he's driving down the highway, or in his office while he's talking on the phone, it's just another day in the park"--Cover.

The Alaskan landscape—so vast, dramatic, and unbelievable—may be the reason the people in Haines, Alaska (population 2,400), so often discuss the meaning of life. Heather Lende thinks it helps make life mean more. Since her bestselling first book, If You Lived Here, I'd Know Your Name, a near-fatal bicycle accident has given Lende a few more reasons to consider matters both spiritual and temporal. Her idea of spirituality is rooted in community, and here she explores faith and forgiveness, loss and devotion—as well as raising totem poles, canning salmon, and other distinctly Alaskan adventures. Lende's irrepressible spirit, her wry humor, and her commitment to living a life on the edge of the world resonate on every page. Like her own mother's last wish—take good care of the garden and dogs—Lende's writing, so honest and unadorned, deepens our understanding of what links all humanity.

You, too, can do the right thing!In 1988, when I was an intern, I asked a senior resident for direction in treating a complicated patient, and he said, "Do the right thing". Those four words have stayed with me ever since. Doing the right thing is critical for a surgeon because our actions can be life-saving, but the ability to do the right thing is intrinsic in all of us. We all possess the innate desire, talents, and compassion to make a positive difference in another person's life, in a community, and even in the world. In "Do the Right Thing: A Surgeon's Approach to Life" I present examples from my career and personal life (both the good and the bad) and extrapolate from those to demonstrate that when presented with an opportunity to help someone, when given a choice to make a difference, particularly when it may be easier to just walk away, we all possess the amazing ability to do the right thing.

In the tradition of Cormac McCarthy and Flannery O’Connor, Bill Cheng’s Southern Cross the Dog is an epic literary debut in which the bonds between three childhood friends are upended by the Great Mississippi Flood of 1927. In its aftermath, one young man must choose between the lure of the future and the claims of the past. Having lost virtually everything in the fearsome storm—home, family, first love—Robert Chatham embarks on an odyssey that takes him through the deep South, from the desperation of a refugee camp to the fiery and raucous brothel Hotel Beau-Miel and into the Mississippi hinterland, where he joins a crew hired to clear the swamp and build a dam. Along his journey he encounters piano-playing hustlers, ne’er-do-well Klansmen, well-intentioned whores, and a family of fur trappers, the L’Etangs, whose very existence is threatened by the swamp-clearing around them. The L’Etang brothers are fierce and wild but there is something soft about their cousin Frankie, possibly the only woman capable of penetrating Robert’s darkest places and overturning his conviction that he’s marked by the devil. Teeming with language that renders both the savage beauty and complex humanity of our shared past, Southern Cross the Dog is a tour de force that heralds the arrival of a major new voice in fiction.
