HELEN CALDWELL CUSHMAN (1905-1986) was many people - wife and muse to the young Erskine Caldwell of the novel Tobacco Road, devoted mother of Erskine Jr., Dabney and Janet, and an entertaining personality in her own right to local radio and newspaper audiences. But most of all, to the many alive today who still remember her, she was a great storyteller. She found her stories, as most storytellers do, in the people and places she loved. For her, that was the two hundred square miles of forests, lakes and ponds called Thirty Mile River. She had come to Thirty Mile River as a child, daughter of legendary University of Virginia basketball coach "Pop" Lannigan, to a former inn called Greentrees, on Parker Pond in Mt. Vernon. While her father ran a summer training camp for his Virginia basketball players, she canoed in nearby Parker Pond and explored the surrounding countryside. She believed the spirits of the Indians, who once call the land theirs alone, inhabited these places; she felt and even saw them. Collected here are her own stories of the strange and supernatural, along with ghostly folk tales she gathered from towns around.

Ready for some stories from the vast wilderness of Canada, home to the Sasquatch, revered and feared by the natives there since before time was recorded? Settle back with a cup of hot chocolate, lock the doors, and be ready to call your best friend in case you start seeing big hairy faces in the window (but be aware that your friend may also be reading these stories, so have a backup plan). These 12 all new and original stories from Rusty Wilson, the World's Greatest Bigfoot Storyteller, will keep you intrigued, hanging onto the edge of your seat, or wishing you could travel up north and see what all the excitement's about for yourself. Come read about a young man who finally gets his wish to visit one of the world's wildest places, where he quickly realizes that maybe his parents were right after all-then read about the strange case where a Sasquatch discovers a rare fossilized dinosaur skeleton-and then, if you dare, read about a woman who stops for a break on a remote Canadian backroad and ends up taking something home with her that she really doesn't want-and there's the Sasquatch that ends up saving peoples' lives by stealing all their food in the dead of winter-and a Sasquatch that brings a couple together through its death-one who decides it wants to be in a painting-another who likes the taste of loons-and a man who discovers a secret Bigfoot food source-all these and more great campfire tales are guaranteed to make you happy you're safe and sound in your house instead of listening to a Sasquatch screaming in the darkness from inside your thin nylon tent, deep in the Canadian wilds. Or, if you're truly the adventurous type, maybe you'll want to buy a thin nylon tent and head to British Columbia or Alberta. Fly-fishing guide Rusty Wilson spent years collecting these stories from his clients around the campfire, stories guaranteed to scare the pants off you-or make you want to meet the Big Guy! "I suspect that Canada has more wild things than we could imagine in our wildest dreams. If you take a look at a map, you'll see just how immense and rugged many parts of this country are, especially those regions in the north and around the Canadian Rockies and Coastal Mountains. I'm sure there are things out there we could only imagine, one of them being Bigfoot-or Sasquatch, as our northern friends call him." -Rusty Wilson

Spirited American stories gathered together for the first time From the coasts of Brazil to the borders of Tibet to the very heartland of America, May There Be a Road gathers ten previously uncollected stories that capture the magnificent scope and sense of epic adventure that epitomize Louis L'Amour classic fiction. In these vivid settings L’Amour takes us into the pivotal moments when lives are altered forever, when men and women face a deadly enemy, find a kindred spirit, or confront their own mortality. Among the unforgettable characters we meet here are a hard-living, hard-drinking freighter captain whose penchant for flying may change the course of World War II . . . A lonely frontiersman who unexpectedly finds himself the protector of two orphans . . . A boxer who accepts a gambler’s payoff and then must fight to redeem himself . . . A detective willing to believe an unproven story in order to discover a painful truth hidden in a small town. And in the title story L’Amour weaves the powerful tale of a young Tibetan khan who leads a band of horsemen on a daring escape across treacherous mountain terrain. At stake is the survival of a people and an ancient way of life. Evoking the American spirit of bravery, pride, adventure, and self-reliance as few writers have, this extraordinary volume proves once again that L’Amour has set a standard yet to be matched.

#1 SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE BESTSELLER • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE “A picaresque, swashbuckling adventure.”—The Washington Post Book World They’re an odd pair, to be sure: pale, rail-thin, black-clad Zelikman, a moody, itinerant physician fond of jaunty headgear, and ex-soldier Amram, a gray-haired giant of a man as quick with a razor-tongued witticism as with a sharpened battle-ax. Brothers under the skin, comrades in arms, they make their rootless way through the Caucasus Mountains, circa a.d. 950, living as they please and surviving however they can—as blades and thieves for hire and as practiced bamboozlers, cheerfully separating the gullible from their money. But when they are dragooned into service as escorts and defenders to a prince of the Khazar Empire, they soon find themselves the half-willing generals in a full-scale revolution—on a road paved with warriors and whores, evil emperors and extraordinary elephants, secrets, swordplay, and such stuff as the grandest adventures are made of. Praise for Gentlemen of the Road “Within a few pages I was happily tangled in [Chabon’s] net of finely filigreed language, seduced by an old-school-style swashbuckling quest . . . laced with surprises and humor.”—San Francisco Chronicle “[Chabon] is probably the premiere prose stylist—the Updike—of his generation.”—Time “The action is intricate and exuberant. . . . It’s hard to resist its gathering momentum, not to mention the sheer headlong pleasure of Chabon’s language.”—The New York Times Book Review “[A] wild, wild adventure . . . abounds with lush language . . . This book roars to be read aloud.”—Chicago Sun-Times
