In the summer of 1923 Grant Collins leaves his languishing career as a journalist and travels to Montana to interview Tornado Tom, the last living rider of the Pony Express.

As the summer unfolds, Tom tells Grant of his seventy year odyssey from a Spartan childhood among the Blackfeet Indians to his life of baronial comfort.

Masters of the Wheat-Lands By Harold Bindloss
eBook (PDF): $3.00
Published in England under the title Hawtrey's Deputy. Excerpt: "Ah," commented Sally, "you want somebody to keep the house straight and look after you. Didn't you know any nice girls... More > back there in the Old Country?" She spoke naturally, and there was nothing to show that the girl's heart beat a little more rapidly than usual as she watched Hawtrey. His face, however, grew a trifle graver, for she had touched upon a momentous question to such men as he. Living in Spartan simplicity upon the prairie, there are a good many of them, well-trained, well-connected young Englishmen, and others like them from Canadian cities. They naturally look for some grace of culture or refinement in the woman they would marry, and there are few women of the station to which they once belonged who could face the loneliness and unassisted drudgery that must be borne by the small wheat-grower's wife. There were also reasons why this question had been troubling Hawtrey in particular of late.< Less

Why Build a Seven? Putting a sports car on the road, a personal record By Michael Eddenden
Hardcover: $36.68

EVER BEEN FORCED TO BUILD YOUR OWN CAR? The first Lotus Seven appeared in 1957. It was unique, a race car for the road. In a time when cars stood for chrome and power and road-holding weight, the... More > Seven was light, quick, nimble and bracing. It was also spartan, hopelessly impractical and sold as a kit, assembly required. Soon it was the benchmark for a sports car — unconventional, fast, rare, and not for everyone. What was unforgivable in other cars justified the Seven. More than 6o years later it's still in production. Now as then, owners have to build their cars. When Michael Eddenden sets out to build a Caterham Seven the fingertip ease of the digital age is replaced by unheated garages, fumes and typed instructions obscured by oily fingerprints. For anyone who has ever wanted to build something with their own hands - despite skill, aptitude and experience. Caterham Cars, manufacturer of the 7, was purchased by Formula 1 Team Lotus in 2011.
