    “A vivid read and well-researched guide for serious ghost hunters that also makes a handy travel companion for California history buffs.” —Library Journal 
     
    When you combine three centuries of exploration and settlement; Spanish, Mexican, and Yankee influence; a handful of natural catastrophes and manmade disasters; and vast swaths of eerie and desolate shoreline, you have an environment ripe for a haunting. From Moss Beach south along Highway 1 to Santa Cruz and down the coast through Monterey, San Luis Obispo, and Lompoc, expert ghost hunter Jeff Dwyer guides locals and tourists alike through the most haunted and historic sites in the area.

    America's Great Plains once possessed one of the grandest wildlife spectacles of the world, equaled only by such places as the Serengeti, the Masai Mara, or the veld of South Africa. Pronghorn antelope, gray wolves, bison, coyotes, wild horses, and grizzly bears: less than two hundred years ago these creatures existed in such abundance that John James Audubon was moved to write, "it is impossible to describe or even conceive the vast multitudes of these animals." In a work that is at once a lyrical evocation of that lost splendor and a detailed natural history of these charismatic species of the historic Great Plains, veteran naturalist and outdoorsman Dan Flores draws a vivid portrait of each of these animals in their glory—and tells the harrowing story of what happened to them at the hands of market hunters and ranchers, and ultimately, a federal killing program in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

    A witty, erudite primer to the world’s most notorious drink.   La Fée Verte (or “The Green Fairy”) has intoxicated artists, poets, and writers ever since the late eighteenth century. Stories abound of absinthe’s drug-like sensations of mood lift and inspiration due to the presence of wormwood, its infamous “special” ingredient, which ultimately leads to delirium, homicidal mania, and death. Opening with the sensational 1905 Absinthe Murders, Phil Baker offers a cultural history of absinthe, from its modest origins as an herbal tonic through its luxuriantly morbid heyday in the late nineteenth century. Chronicling a fascinatingly lurid cast of historical characters who often died young, the absinthe scrapbook includes Paul Verlaine, Arthur Rimbaud, Charles Baudelaire, Oscar Wilde, Ernest Dowson, Aleister Crowley, Arthur Machen, August Strindberg, Alfred Jarry, Vincent van Gogh, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Alphonse Allais, Ernest Hemingway, and Pablo Picasso. Along with discussing the rituals and modus operandi of absinthe drinking, Baker reveals the recently discovered pharmacology of how real absinthe actually works on the nervous system, and he tests the various real and fake absinthe products that are available overseas.   “Formidably researched, beautifully written, and abundant with telling detail and pitch-black humor.” —The Daily Telegraph

    Chile [golpeado]

    En estas crónicas aparece el Chile golpeado de ayer, ese país que pasó de la utopía al golpe; de la dictadura a la transición. Osorno, Valdivia, Temuco, Santiago, La Serena son ciudades que la escritora argentina María Moreno recorre un poco antes de las elecciones de 1970, traduciendo el mapa del viaje militante de su novio comunista.
    Unos años después regresa sola, en medio de la Unidad Popular, presencia la emblemática visita de Fidel, participa de las amistades solidarias que proliferaban en ese "diurno de Chile". El escritor mexicano Yuri Herrera llega por primera vez en 1997, para visitar a unos antiguos amigos, a un país que le parece "obliterado por militares, mala memoria y economistas armados hasta los dientes de Friedman; un país derrotado".
    Transcurre el último quinquenio de los noventa y los colores variopintos del consenso; también el revuelo del arresto de Pinochet en Londres y las primeras chispas de Lumaco, el "Chiapas chileno". Las consecuencias de esos episodios le parecen, en su segundo viaje, indicios de un inconsciente político activado con la revuelta estudiantil de 2011.
