Summary

I killed and buried my best friend today ... 
When authorities found Raffi Kodikian -- barely alive -- four days after he and his friend David Coughlin became lost in Rattlesnake Canyon, they made a grim and shocking discovery. Kodikian freely admitted that he had stabbed Coughlin twice in the heart. Had there been a darker motive than mercy? And how could anyone, under any circumstances, kill his best friend? 
Armed with the journal Kodikian and Coughlin carried into Rattle- snake Canyon, Jason Kersten re-creates in riveting detail those fateful days that led to the killing in an infamously unforgiving wilderness.

    Inventor. Visionary. Genius. Dropout. Adopted. Steve Jobs was the  founder of Apple and he was all of these things.    Steve Jobs  has been described as a showman, artist, tyrant, genius, jerk. Through  his life he was loved, hated, admired and dismissed, yet he was a living  legend; the genius who founded Apple in his parent's garage when he was  just 21 years-old, revolutionising the music world. He single-handedly  introduced the first computer that could sit on your desk and founded  and nurtured a company called Pixar bringing to life Oscar wining  animations Toy Story and Finding Nemo.    So how  did the man, who was neither engineer nor computer geek change the world  we live in, making us want every product he touched?    On  graduation day in 2005, a fifty-year-old Steve Jobs said: 'Today I want  to tell you three stories from my life, That's it. Just three stories'.  The first story is about connecting the dots. My second story is about  love and loss. My third story is about death.    This is his  story...  Critically acclaimed author Karen Blumenthal takes us to  the core of this complicated and legendary man, from his adoption and  early years through to the pinnacles of his career, his dismissal from  his duties at Apple (for being too disruptive and difficult) to the  graduation where he gave the commencement speech just 6 years before his  death, giving life to what were soon to become some of most famous  quotes of his career, ending with the message: "Stay Hungry. Stay  Foolish. And I have always wished that for myself. And now, as you  graduate to begin anew, I wish that for you."    "Your  time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life."

    Lady at the O.K. Corral: The True Story of Josephine Marcus Earp by Ann Kirschner is the definitive biography of a Jewish girl from New York who won the heart of Wyatt Earp. 
    For nearly fifty years, she was the common-law wife of Wyatt Earp: hero of the O.K. Corral and the most famous lawman of the Old West. Yet Josephine Sarah Marcus Earp has nearly been erased from Western lore. In this fascinating biography, Ann Kirschner, author of the acclaimed Sala's Gift, brings Josephine out of the shadows of history to tell her tale: a spirited and colorful tale of ambition, adventure, self-invention, and devotion. Reflective of America itself, her story brings us from the post–Civil War years to World War II, and from New York to the Arizona Territory to old Hollywood.In Lady at the O.K. Corral, you’ll learn how this aspiring actress and dancer—a flamboyant, curvaceous Jewish girl with a persistent New York accent—landed in Tombstone, Arizona, and sustained a lifelong partnership with Wyatt Earp, a man of uncommon charisma and complex heroism.
