  • CHEDDAR

    One of the oldest, most ubiquitous and beloved cheeses in the world, cheddar has a fascinating history. Over the years it has been transformed from a painstakingly handmade wheel to a rindless, mass-produced block, to a liquefied and emulsified plastic mass untouched by human hands. The Henry Fordism of cheddar production in many ways anticipated the advent of industrial agriculture. They don’t call it “American Cheese” for nothing.

    Cheddar is one man’s picaresque journey to find out what a familiar food can tell us about ourselves. Cheddar may be appreciated in almost all American homes, but the advocates of the traditional wheel versus the processed slice often have very different ideas about food. Since cheddar—with its diversity of manufacturing processes and tastes—is such a large umbrella, it is the perfect food through which to discuss many big food issues that face our society.

    More than that, though, cheddar holds a key to understanding not only issues surrounding food politics, but also some of the ways we think of our cultural identity. Cheddar, and its offshoots, has something to tell us about this country: the way people rally to certain cheddars but not others; the way they extol or denounce the way others eat it; the role of the commodification of a once-artisan cheese and the effect that has on rural communities. The fact that cheddar is so common that it is often taken for granted means that examining it can lead us to the discovery of usually unspoken truths.

    Author Gordon Edgar (Cheesemonger: A Life on the Wedge) is well-equipped to take readers on a tour through the world of cheddar. For more than 15 years he has worked as an iconoclastic cheesemonger in San Francisco, but his sharp talent for observation and social critique were honed long before then, in the world of ’zines, punk rock and progressive politics. His fresh perspectives on such a seemingly common topic are as thought-provoking as they are entertaining.

South of the Tetons, through a keyhole pass, he found it: a lonely yet beautiful valley — with a fortune in gold. Then he found an even greater treasure: Ange Kerry, a courageous and resourceful woman. But the harsh ways it takes to protect his claim and their lives may be the one thing that drives Ange away.

Where did his skill with a gun come from? What was the link between his life and buried gold worth a half a million dollars'? He didn't have the answers, but he needed them soon. Because what he still didn't know about himself, others did — including the men who wanted him dead.

    Over on the Dry Side

    For ten years, Val Darrant and Will Reilly were all the family the other had, traveling from dusty American boomtowns to the cities of Europe-until the day Reilly's luck ran out in a roar of gunfire.

    Deep in Indian territory with a wagon full of gold and a major's daughter at his side, Lt. Tenadore Brian is a man who'll do whatever it takes to avoid ending up like the rest of his massacred wagon-train companions.

    How the West Was Won
    They came by river and by wagon train, braving the endless distances of the Great Plains and the icy passes of the Sierra Nevada. They were men like Linus Rawlings, a restless survivor of Indian country who’d headed east to see the ocean but left his heart—and his home—in the West. They were women like Lilith Prescott, a smart, spirited beauty who fled her family and fell for a gambling man in the midst of a frontier gold boom. These pioneering men and women sowed the seeds of a nation with their courage—and with their blood. Here is the story of how their paths would meet amid the epic struggle against fierce enemies and nature’s cruelty, to win for all time the rich and untamed West.
