Robert Moor$17.99 $16.73
Robert Moor's book is wonderfully written and provides a thoughtful read for anyone who has "walked" from one place to another and wondered whose footprints they are following and why anyone walked here before.
Nathaniel Philbrick$19.00 $17.67
There are no shortage of books on the Battle of the Little Bighorn, but this one may simply be the best. A combination of well constructed prose and a perfect balance between the order of battle, battlefield movements, and the personalities that led to an event that has not loosened it's grip on public interest in close to 150 years.
Aldo Leopold$8.99 $8.36
Aldo Leopold$17.99 $16.73

American's are pretty good at thinking how we do it is how everyone else does it. Well sometimes it takes going to another country to realize how uniquely American that is, but sometimes all it can take is a non-American willing to write (with an eye for detail, a great sense of humor, and no shortage of empathy) about what it is like for a non-American to bring his family to the States and try to live like an American. You will never take your food-server asking, "is everything all-right?" the same way again.
