More Info

An improbable journey through the world of strange and mysterious creatures.

All Creatures Weird and Dangerous describes the author's experiences as a veterinarian drawn by chance to care for a variety of cryptozoological creatures. As a practicing veterinarian, the author is called upon, as if by strange forces, to care for a Chupacabra, Sasquatch, Lake Erie's monster Bessie, mermaids and fairies in Newfoundland, and eventually a unicorn in the Highlands of Scotland. Drawing on his experiences as a wildlife rehabilitator and exotic-animal veterinarian, the author cares for these odd creatures, describing his work in accurate medical detail and touching on the importance of compassion and the need to respect all creatures on our planet. An homage to James Herriott's All Creatures Great and Small, while touching on stories equally appropriate for an episode of the X-Files.

In 2015, 36-year-old Chicago resident David King finds himself at a personal and professional crossroads. Feeling bored and restless, he longs to strike out on a crazy journey in a quest for beauty, kindness, and inspiration as to where his life should go from here. Having taken up biking as a hobby, he consults a map of the United States and, in a spur-of-the-moment decision, vows to ride across the country - from San Diego to Miami.


Over the course of four months, "America on Two Wheels: Biking Coast to Coast in Search of Human Stories" follows David's journey as he pedals more than 3,000 miles across mountains, desert, bayou, and tropical flatlands, overcoming physical and mental challenges in pursuit of a destination he's not sure he'll even reach. Painting a tableau of adventure and a world of possibility in the vein of Jack Kerouac or Paul Theroux, he introduces readers to an unforgettable cast of characters and their unsung acts of kindness. David invites the reader to join him on a journey through fear, doubt, patience, and discovery - not just across a continent, but toward a profound lesson of gratitude. Part travelogue, part memoir, part spiritual journey, "America on Two Wheels" is an ode to pursuing the open road with an open heart.

American Tomboys, 1850-1915

More Info
A lot of women remember having had tomboy girlhoods. Some recall it as a time of gender-bending freedom and rowdy pleasures. Others feel the word is used to limit girls by suggesting such behavior is atypical. In American Tomboys, Renée M. Sentilles explores how the concept of the tomboy developed in the turbulent years after the Civil War, and she argues that the tomboy grew into an accepted and even vital transitional figure. In this period, cultural critics, writers, and educators came to imagine that white middle-class tomboys could transform themselves into the vigorous mothers of America's burgeoning empire. In addition to the familiar heroines of literature, Sentilles delves into a wealth of newly uncovered primary sources that manifest tomboys' lived experience, and she asks critical questions about gender, family, race, and nation. Beautifully written and exhaustively researched, American Tomboys explores the cultural history of girls who, for a time, whistled, got into scrapes, and struggled against convention.

Another Hysterical Female

Another Hysterical Female

$14.99
More Info
"This hysterical female is teaching us all how to laugh again, be brave again, and live again. Start reading and get ready to be inspired, laugh your face off, and accomplish your dreams." - Jenni Pulos, star of Bravo's Flipping Out

Author Kristin Giese proves she can deliver a laugh as effortlessly as she can a lesson in Another Hysterical Female. This book features a collection of mostly funny stories from Kristin's life to fix us, the author included. Her approach is somewhat of a modern-day Mary Poppins - minus the fact that Mary never pulled a vibrator out of her carpetbag. Kristin's brand of humor is the exact spoonful of sugar we need to help our heartache go down.

Another Hysterical Female reads like an exploration in what it is to be a woman today. Kristin's stories are real, vulnerable, disarmingly honest, and hysterically funny. The entire book unfolds as if you were seated next to her at a dinner party, conversational and unexpectedly hilarious. You'll start as strangers but by dessert, she'll be the best friend you just hadn't met yet.

In Another Hysterical Female, Kristin regales us with stories from her childhood, life in entertainment as a talent manager, publicist, and producer, as well as the things she's learned running her own company - all to shed light on how what has hurt us can also point us toward what could radically heal us. "If trauma had a tagline, it would be: If you don't laugh, I'll make you cry. It's like a bully on the playground, holding us back from our happiness. In reality, we don't have to get over what has hurt us to move forward in life, but we do have to stop believing that we are what has hurt us if we truly want to build our happiness. I'm spilling the beans on what has hurt me in the hopes of doing just that in my own life."

WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THE BOOK:
"Kristin is the best friend you never knew you needed. Her advice is savvy, compassionate, and all told with a wry wit that will have you rolling. A must read for any young woman about to start her adult life. A relatable read for any woman who's tried to balance life. And a fun read for just about any person who's lived life at all. Just read it. You're welcome." - Paige Davis, star of TLC's Trading Spaces
