Flagan and Galloway Sackett had made a deal to escort Judith Costello, the granddaughter of a wealthy Irish horse trader, to her father’s home in Colorado. Flagan saw nothing but trouble in the pretty, fiery young woman, but they needed the horses. Unfortunately, Flagan was right, for Judith had fallen for James Black Fetchen, a charismatic gunman whose courtship hid the darkest of intentions. Flagan and Galloway could only guess why Judith was so important to Fetchen and what awaited them at her father’s ranch. One thing Flagan knew for sure: the tough and spirited woman had won his heart. But could he trust her with his life?
Trouble was following Flagan Sackett with a vengeance. Captured and tortured by a band of Apaches, he had escaped into the rugged San Juan country, where he would try to stay alive until his brother, Galloway, could find him. But the brothers were about to find worse trouble ahead. Their plan to establish a ranch had angered the Dunn clan, who had decided that the vast range would be theirs alone. Now Galloway and Flagan would face an enemy who killed for sport — but as long as other Sacketts lived, they would not fight alone.

Will Allen is an organic farming visionary. A true activist, entrepreneur and expert, he understands the complexities of farming firsthand and the impact that commercialization has had. In the early 19th century, as the American population grew rapidly, demands on crop output increased. Seeing an opportunity to play upon fears from market demand, chemical companies declared war on the vile, profit-sucking, output-wrecking, archnemesis of the average American farmer: bugs. With precision, pesticide manufacturers delivered a "shock and awe" media campaign that can only be compared to the current blitzkrieg from today's pharmaceutical companies. Bugs were the threat to the American dream - and there was a cure available to every farmer available in spray, granule, dust or systemic form that could be applied to your crops. Will Allen's War on Bugs reveals how advertisers, editors, scientists, large-scale farmers, government agencies and even Dr. Seuss colluded to convince farmers to use deadly chemicals, hormones and genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in an effort to pad their wallets and control the American farm enterprise. Utilizing dozens of original advertisements and promotions to illustrate the story, Allen details how consumers and activists have struggled against toxic food. Echoing the warnings of seminal works on the topic such as The Jungle by Upton Sinclair, 100,000,000 Guinea Pigs by Arthur Kallet and F.J. Schlink, and Silent Spring by Rachel Carson, The War on Bugs shouts that the time to stop poisoning our food, water, air and ourselves is now!
With the growing evidence that vegetarian meals are great for your health, more people with diabetes are looking to build vegetarian dishes into their meal plans. However, not everyone is ready to give up meat completely, and most vegetarians live with someone who's not ready to take the plunge. Thus was born the "flexitarian," someone who eats mainly vegetarian food, but occasionally fits in a little meat, poultry or fish. Catering to this growing crowd (nearly one in four Americans self-identifies as a flexitarian), The With or Without Meat Cookbook makes it simple for people to savor the tastes and health benefits of eating more like a vegetarian, while being able to stick to a balanced meal plan for diabetes. Each of the 125 diabetes-friendly recipes is vegetarian with a non-vegetarian recipe "add-on" provided, as well. Each recipe can be made two ways: one for veggie lovers and one for meat lovers. For those with diabetes, pre-diabetes or heart health issues (or who are simply looking to improve their diet), the flexitarian approach provides the best of both worlds. Nutrition facts are provided and each perfectly portioned recipe follows the nutritional guidelines of the American Diabetes Association (ADA).
