Junkyard Dogs Book Excerpt:

As a teenage zoo owner and the head of an eco-team that's been tasked to overcome global warming and protect endangered species, Zak Bates is as busy as ever. Despite much help from a truly stellar multi-species coterie, his life, in a word, is wild, and it seems that things are about to get hairier. When the eco-team receives word from the Council of Animals of the Spiritual Frontier about a curious disturbance amongst New York's animal population, it soon becomes clear that something truly sinister is afoot—or apaw—and, worse, the plague is prodigious. Across the city, scores of store owners, led by real estate mogul, Stanford Ivory, have started using and abusing junkyard dogs as living burglar alarms and stray cats as mousers. Having been abandoned at birth, Faith Bandara is particularly sensitive to such abuse. She resolves to use her empathic abilities to save these sentient beings from a life of servitude. Faith and her street-smart friend, Midge Meadows, join the eco-team to do just that, but will it be enough to turn the tide against such ruthless forces? As Zak and his team begin to dig deeper, they find that the truth is worse than expected. Yes, someone must save these animals by bringing the syndicate's crimes to a stop. The only question that now remains is where exactly to start. With Vol. IV of the thought-provoking Zak Bates Eco-adventure series, we're shown again: a heartfelt message can only enhance a thrilling expedition.

The Providence and Rhode Island Cookbook Book Excerpt:

Jonnycakes, gaggers, and stuffies are not typically found on restaurant menus. Chorizo, quahogs, and coffee cabinets are uncommon as well. In the diners, restaurants, and homes of Rhode Island, however, these foods are well known and part of a vibrant food subculture. With a population of barely one million people, Rhode Island has a surprising number of local dishes, food traditions, and culinary terms that are unique to the state. Author Linda Beaulieu explores the food of Rhode Island, especially in and around Providence, and discusses how such a small state can have so many big flavors. In The Providence and Rhode Island Cookbook, the author shares recipes from talented chefs, family, and friends. These recipes highlight the bounty of native seafood and produce, as well as celebrate the ethnic mix of people and the characters who have populated the state over time. Find recipes for Buddy Cianci's Marinara Sauce or Linguine a la Nirope ("Nirope" stands for Nick, Ron, and Pete Cardi, local businessmen and owners of the Cardi furniture chain); make a Wimpy Skimpy (spinach pie); and discover why Rhode Island chowder is like none other.

Dawgs Gone Wild The Scandalous 70s of UGA Football Book Excerpt:

In the mid-'70s, the University of Georgia football team caused quite a stir off the field. Several players had encounters with the manipulative "Godfather of Pro Wrestling" and his money-for-sex scheme. A careless prank aboard a team-chartered airplane resulted in a bomb scare and an FBI inquiry. The mysterious death of a standout teammate in 1976 remained unsolved for decades. Despite it all, a valiant and tenacious head coach and his acclaimed "Junkyard Dogs" defied the odds and developed a celebrated championship team. UGA football writer and historian Patrick Garbin, using extensive interviews with former players and coaches, delivers an astounding and, at times, appalling true tale of sex, drugs and wild debauchery in college football.

Here is your chance to go inside the huddle of the Georgia Bulldogs, into their locker room and onto the sidelines, your chance to join your favorite players on the team plane, and at the team hotel. Go behind the scenes and peek into the private world of the players, coaches and decision makers, eavesdropping on their personal conversations. You'll read stories like the one when, in the 1912 game against Alabama, Alonzo Awtrey stood on the sidelines disguised in a pair of white overalls rather than the standard football uniform, holding a water bucket. When Georgia dropped back to pass, Awtrey dropped his bucket and ran downfield. He caught a pass around midfield where the "water boy" ran for an additional 35 yards before being tackled. You'll have a front row seat for the times when the memories were made and hear some of the great stories from the history of Georgia football. "Then Vince Said to Herschel..." is the book written for every sports fan who follows the Bulldogs. Don't be left out of the loop. Get the first hand accounts from true team insiders. No more rumors or second hand "he said, she said". Relive the highlights. Be there for the celebrations. Find out just how it really happened in "Then Vince Said to Herschel..."
