    Dogs and humans have lived side by side for over 15,000 years, a record that’s not to be sniffed at. Dogs have played an important part in human history and in the development of our civilisation. Ours is an enduring, sometimes enigmatic relationship, a symbiotic partnership. We have hunted and herded together and lived and fought side by side. Today, they guard and protect us and we work in tandem to save lives. Steadfast in their loyalty, faithful in their friendship, dogs reward us handsomely. And Beautiful Dogs captures the diversity, beauty, mystique and charm of our companions, co-workers and champions. This is a book for all those who love dogs. It is a photographic celebration of man’s ‘best friend’.

    From the #1 bestselling author of The Boys in the Boat comes an unforgettable epic of family, tragedy, and survival on the American frontier 
    “An ideal pairing of talent and material.… Engrossing.… A deft and ambitious storyteller.” – Mary Roach, New York Times Book Review 
    In April of 1846, twenty-one-year-old Sarah Graves, intent on a better future, set out west from Illinois with her new husband, her parents, and eight siblings. Seven months later, after joining a party of pioneers led by George Donner, they reached the Sierra Nevada Mountains as the first heavy snows of the season closed the pass ahead of them. In early December, starving and desperate, Sarah and fourteen others set out for California on snowshoes, and, over the next thirty-two days, endured almost unfathomable hardships and horrors. 
    In this gripping narrative, New York Times bestselling author Daniel James Brown sheds new light on one of the most legendary events in American history. Following every painful footstep of Sarah’s journey with the Donner Party, Brown produces a tale both spellbinding and richly informative.

    A New York Times Notable Book 
    Winner of the Kiriyama Book Prize 
    In the heart of China's Sichuan province, amid the terraced hills of the Yangtze River valley, lies the remote town of Fuling. Like many other small cities in this ever-evolving country, Fuling is heading down a new path of change and growth, which came into remarkably sharp focus when Peter Hessler arrived as a Peace Corps volunteer, marking the first time in more than half a century that the city had an American resident. Hessler taught English and American literature at the local college, but it was his students who taught him about the complex processes of understanding that take place when one is immersed in a radically different society. 
    Poignant, thoughtful, funny, and enormously compelling, River Town is an unforgettable portrait of a city that is seeking to understand both what it was and what it someday will be.
