But his next action breaks their hearts: he tries to bulldoze the huge relic to the ground. Faye and Joe rush to protect history with their bodies, if necessary. The situation grows more dangerous as Choctaws arrive to defend the mound and the farmer's white and black neighbors come to defend his property rights. A popular young sheriff is able to defuse the situation, but tempers are short. That night, Calhoun is found dead, his throat sliced with a handmade stone blade. Was he killed by an archaeologist angered by his wanton destruction of history? Did a Choctaw take up arms to defend an embattled heritage? Did someone decide to even the score with an old rival? The sheriff is well - aware that Faye and Joe were near the spot where Calhoun's body was found. The whole county saw their confrontation with him over the mound. And their combined knowledge of stone tools is impressive. They had motive, means, and opportunity - but so did almost everyone in Neshoba County.

12. HOSTAGE'S DAUGHTER - Sulome Anderson

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Pai Gow is the biggest gambling game in the world. It is a game played with dice and with 32 Chinese dominoes. Although it is an ancient game, its popularity has greatly increased in recent years and it is now featured in almost every major gambling casino in the world. It is common for a player to bet $5000 (five thousand US dollars) on a single hand of Pai Gow. When I was playing Pai Gow recently in the Oaks Card Room in Emeryville California, I was betting the minimum $10 on my hand of Pai Gow, while the man sitting next to me was betting $5000 on the same hand. Added together, a total of $10,000 (ten thousand dollars) was bet on that one hand. In the Pai Gow game I was playing in, the banker, who is just one of the players and not the house, was matching all the bets of the other players, Thus, that one player stood to win or to lose $10,000 on just that one hand of Pai Gow. Nowadays, almost every major casino in Nevada, Atlantic City and Macao and most other large casinos around the world offer Pai Gow. Most of the big card rooms in California offer Pai Gow as well.

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

The summer of 1919 is over, and on the high prairie, a small army of men, women, and machines moves across the land, bringing in the wheat harvest. Custom threshers, steam engineers, bindlestiffs, cooks, camp followers, and hobos join the tide. Prosperous farmers proudly proclaim ''Rain follows the plow,'' meaning that the bounty of the land will never be exhausted. Everywhere, people gleefully embrace the gospels of progress and greed. The threshing season is on. But there is also an evil upon the land. A killer who calls himself the Windmill Man believes he has a holy calling to water the newly plucked earth with blood. For him, the moving harvest is a target - rich environment, an endless supply of ready victims. He has been killing for years now and intends to kill for many more. Who could stop him? Nobody even knew he existed. Until now. A young man named Charlie Krueger also follows the harvest. Jilted by his childhood sweetheart and estranged from his drunkard father, he hopes to find a new life as a steam engineer. But in a newly harvested field in the nearly black Dakota night, he has come upon a strange man digging a grave. And in that moment, he has become the only person who can stop the evil, if he lives long enough. For the killer knows his name and his wanderings, and he, too, is now a target. When next they meet, one of them will have to die.

17. Ashland (Large Print 16pt) - Gil Adamson

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

We look away from his open mouth, look instead at the corn, the crows floating above the river in their private worries. Tonight, when we turn in, the candle will sputter and blow. Pinched out easily, all flame gives way to this wide black wing. - excerpt from ''Black Wing''
The poems in Ashland, originally published by ECW in 2003, lay the groundwork for Adamson's award - winning and internationally bestselling novel, The Outlander.
Neogothicism, the surrealist snapshot, feminist Western and postmodern parable are just some of the elements that feed Gil Adamson's second collection of poems. Adamson creates a world fully awash in violence and history, the absurdities of the frontier, the gorgeous terrors of death. Everything is simple, and yet nothing is as it seems.
Moving easily from prose poem to lyric, verbal portrait to improbable biography, Ashland leads us on a macabre tour of our nightmares, perverse secrets, and death - focused mythologies: ''In the end we see ourselves. We last longer. The night opens its mouth, and we step in.''

19. Joey Smallwood Schemer and Dreamer (Large Print 16pt) - Ray Argyle

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Born in Gambo, Newfoundland, Joseph (''Joey'') Smallwood (1900 - 1991) spent his life championing the worth and potential of his native province. Although he was a successful journalist and radio personality, Smallwood is best known for his role in bringing Newfoundland into Confederation with Canada in 1949, believing that such an action would secure an average standard of living for Newfoundlanders. He was rightfully dubbed the ''only living Father of Confederation'' in his lifetime and was premier of the province for twenty - three years. During much of the last part of the twentieth century, Smallwood remained a prominent player in the story of Newfoundland and Labrador's growth as a province. Later in life he put himself in debt in order to complete his Encyclopedia of Newfoundland and Labrador, the only project of its kind in Canada up to that point. InJoey Smallwood: Schemer and Dreamer, Ray Argyle reexamines the life of this incredible figure in light of Newfoundland's progress in recent years, and measures his vision against its new position as a province of prosperity rather than poverty.
