Autumn of the Black Snake: The Creation of the U.S. Army and the Invasion That Opened the West

Sun, 23 Apr 2017 04:00:00 UT

In 1791, the United States found itself losing an escalating military conflict with the indigenous people of the Ohio Valley, who saw the new nation as a threat to their existence. Years of skirmishes and raids climaxed in the grisly defeat of a motley crew of American militiamen by a confederation of Shawnee, Miami, and Delaware Indians. President George Washington decided that the United States needed its first army, and along with Alexander Hamilton, outmaneuvered Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and other skeptics to appoint General “Mad” Anthony Wayne to lead the new Legion. Wayne then marched into the forests of the Old Northwest, where the Indians he defeated gave him the name "Black Snake" with grudging admiration.



Chuck Klosterman X: A Highly Specific, Defiantly Incomplete History of the Early 21st Century

Sun, 23 Apr 2017 04:00:00 UT

Bestselling author and pop culture critic Chuck Klosterman (But What If We’re Wrong?, 2016) admits in this entertaining collection of previously published pieces, mostly about music and sports, that gathering his old articles is not something he likes doing. But this addictively readable collection includes essays covering the past decade, including musicians Ozzy Osbourne, Eddie Van Halen, Noel Gallagher, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, and Lou Reed, and athletes Tim Tebow, Usain Bolt, Kobe Bryant, and Tom Brady. There are also references to Breaking Bad and Harry Potter and a fine piece on Jonathan Franzen. Other highlights include an interview with a polite yet prickly Jimmy Page and a poignant piece on Charlie Brown. (Booklist Reviews)



Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine

Sun, 23 Apr 2017 04:00:00 UT

Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she's thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions. But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling IT guy from her office. When she and Raymond rescue Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen on the sidewalk, the three become the kinds of friends who rescue one another from the lives of isolation they have each been living. And it is Raymond's big heart that will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one. A compassionate, smart, and wholly original debut.
