The Horse and Buggy The Doctor, Hertzler, Arthur E.
11 Hertzler, Arthur E. The Horse and Buggy The Doctor
Blue Ribbon Books 1941 Hardcover Good No 
"The Horse and Buggy Doctor follows no conventional lines. In larger part it is a book rich in anecdotes, a lively and somewhat rough-and-ready depiction of the country physician's experiences in general and Dr. Hertzler's in particular. In part it is descriptive of medical methods of the period."-New York Times "This is almost an autobiography. Certainly it is the complete picture of a man. And the man is worth looking at."-Saturday Review of Literature "An honest and objective self-record that puts on paper one of the most beloved traditions of the past and shows that the fundamental virtues for which the country doctor was cherished have survived into the scientific present, while many not-so-good aspects of sentimental old days have fortunately been left behind

John F. Kennedy chose to write about eight United States Senators - who were the very models of virtue and integrity under intense pressure. These ideal examples of personal strength and conscientious action persevered in their pursuit of justice and what they felt was the right path, in spite of the coercion and vilification of the majority. Kennedy describes not only the senators and their impact on the course of history, but the times and political climate in which they were working. His writing is engaging, powerful and inspiring, and the addition of over 130 historical photographs, drawings, paintings and political cartoons brings the text to a new and fascinating level.

The Saga of Lewis & Clark into the uncharted West, Schmidt, Thomas and Jeremy
19 Schmidt, Thomas and Jeremy The Saga of Lewis & Clark into the uncharted West
Tehabi Books, Inc 1999 0789446383 / 9780789446381 First Edition Hardcover Very good yes 
Beautifully written and illustrated, this book follows Lewis and Clark from the inception of their expedition to their celebrated homecoming. In an effort to seek out -- and stake out -- the fabled Northwest Passage, Captains Lewis and Clark led the expedition from Missouri through uncharted territory to Oregon. They fought rivers, suffered sunstroke, encountered and befriended Indians, and survived hunger, fatigue, and sickness. The journals brought back by various members, excerpted here, present the first written account of the area west of the Mississippi, including the newly acquired Louisiana Purchase. Illustrations focus on running maps that serve as time lines, current photographs of still-virgin wilderness, annotated sketches selected from the hundreds of plants and animals (which the expedition documented for the first time), and artifacts created or first archived by Lewis and Clark themselves.

Harper 2005 0060837012 / 9780060837013 Paperback Good 
At twelve, Emily Parmenter knows alone all too well. Left mostly to herself after her beautiful young mother disappeared and her beloved older brother died, Emily is keenly aware of yearning and loss. Rather than be consumed by sadness, she has built a life around the faded plantation where her remote father and hunting-obsessed brothers raise the legendary Lowcountry Boykin hunting spaniels. It is a meager, narrow, masculine world, but to Emily it has magic: the storied deep-sea dolphins who come regularly to play in Sweetwater Creek; her extraordinary bond with the beautiful dogs she trains; her almost mystic communion with her own spaniel, Elvis; the dreaming old Lowcountry itself. Emily hides from the dreaded world here. It is enough. And then comes Lulu Foxworth, troubled daughter of a truly grand plantation, who has run away from her hectic Charleston debutante season to spend a healing summer with the quiet marshes and river, and the life-giving dogs. Where Emily's father sees their guest as an entrée to a society he thought forever out of reach, Emily is at once threatened and mystified. Lulu has a powerful enchantment of her own, and this, along with the dark, crippling secret she brings with her, will inevitably blow Emily's magical water world apart and let the real one in—but at a terrible price.
