Book Description :

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR • Look for special features inside. Join the Random House Reader’s Circle for author chats and more. The year is 2008 and Samantha Kofer’s career at a huge Wall Street law firm is on the fast track—until the recession hits and she is downsized, furloughed, and escorted out of the building. Samantha, though, is offered an opportunity to work at a legal aid clinic for one year without pay, all for a slim chance of getting rehired. In a matter of days Samantha moves from Manhattan to Brady, Virginia, population 2,200, in the heart of Appalachia, a part of the world she has only read about. Samantha’s new job takes her into the murky and dangerous world of coal mining, where laws are often broken, communities are divided, and the land itself is under attack. But some of the locals aren’t so thrilled to have a big-city lawyer in town, and within weeks Samantha is engulfed in litigation that turns deadly. Because like most small towns, Brady harbors big secrets that some will kill to conceal. Praise for Gray Mountain “[An] important new novel . . . superior entertainment.”—The Washington Post “Powerful . . . a satisfying, old-fashioned, good guy/bad guy legal thriller.”—The Christian Science Monitor “Yes, Gray Mountain is fiction. But after reading the book, you’ll believe heroic action must be taken.”—USA Today “Grisham has written one of his best legal dramas.”—Associated Press

Book Description :

Published in 2014, Gray Mountain is a legal thriller focusing on strip mining for coal. Set in Appalachia, a town in eastern America, this story centres around a lawyer named Donovan Gray. A big character in such a small town, and certainly to Samantha Kofer. She is new to the area from New York, and having previously worked in the capital's biggest law firm is feeling decidedly out of place. Set in the times after the Great Recession, we see third-year graduate Samantha learning on her feet in a small town that plays by its own rules. After the economy taking a nose dive, Samantha finds herself far from her former dreams of earning huge wages in New York. Samantha is desperate to keep her benefits of her former role and has arrived at Appallachia on the promise of being taken back if the company finds itself in credit again. Working under Mattie Wyatt at the Mountain Legal Aid Clinic, she soon learns what a tough world she has entered where coal miners have little to no rights, even riddled with disease solely attributable to their working environment. Gray Mountain by John Grisham beautifully captures both the stunning scenery that the story is set in, but of the colliding worlds of face paced New York and the slow but deadly Appallachia. Donovan Gray is the nephew of Mattie Wyatt and is on a mission to tackle the big bosses of the strip coal mining world. In doing so, John Grisham enlightens us to the dangers of this world and the damage it is doing to both the environment and the people working in it. Highlighting the extremity of the work, Donovan takes on a heartbreaking case where an upended boulder rolls down and flattens a worker's house, killing his two boys inside. The story then hones in on the proceeding court case and Donovan seeking justice asking for settlement. Samantha meanwhile is involved in a love interest, and also abused by men in the town.

Gray Mountain: A Novel By John Grisham | Conversation Starters A Brief Look Inside: John Grisham’s 2014 legal thriller, Gray Mountain, focuses on the life of a pauper and society’s view of injustice. The main character, Samantha, faces the ultimate challenge and disappointment when the high-power law firm she drudgingly serves gives her only one option—work for a non-profit firm of theirs and, possibly get your prestigious job back. The victim of a law firm that loses prosperity, Samantha is desperate to keep her place among the elite. She learns a quick lesson in the importance of serving humanity first through placement with the Mountain Aid Legal Clinic. Her life looks a bit “gray” on the mountain of suffering she discovers exists in the world, which changes her entire perspective on life, including a new chance at romance. Gray Mountain was touted to be an “angry but important” novel by the Washington Post due to its focus on the coal miners’ life at Big Coal. Released in 2014, following another serious look at human suffering in Sycamore Row (2013), this novel took the number 3 slot on the New York Times bestseller list for 10 weeks.

Book Description :

The Penguins Ate My Postcards tells the story of one womans connections with people and places as she traveled around the world. It consists of essays, grouped by theme, of varying lengths and moods. They can be read in any order and independently of one another. Sections One provides anecdotes about people the author met in the USSR, Australia, Cambodia, and Europe. Most of their stories are light and entertaining, but they all identify some characteristics of human beings in specific situations all of us have faced. Section Two through Section Five describe some of the places the author has traveled. She combines her feelings as she stood atop mountains or glaciers and watched the sun set behind them with the reality of the beauty she was capturing with her camera. Some of the essays are memoirs from the time when Communism ruled a vast part of the world, and traveling was different in Iron Curtain countries from what it is now. Shell take you on her taxi ride through Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin and on her train ride from Leningrad through the Baltic countries and Poland into East Berlin. Because the author was a teacher, shell share with you some of the literary and historic sites she visited, combining some facts with her impressions and some incidents that occurred in those places. Youll laugh along with her as she compares the people she met with beloved literary characters youll remember from your high school and college English classes. Youll become pensive when she relates stories about genocide and civil strife in some of the Asian countries she has visited. Youll share some of her professional experiences as she visited schools in South Africa, Cambodia, England, China, and Vietnam, with her focus being on the conditions in which teachers and students interacted for learning. Youll remember the children. Some of the essays contain anecdotes about encounters with penguins in Antarctica, polar bears in the tundra, kangaroos in Australia, and camels in Egypt. The settings of her tales are diverse, and the enjoyment of being close to wild animals in their native habitat is strong. Youll walk alongside waterfalls, down mountain trails, within the remains of ancient civilizations, and in buildings constructed for some unique reasons. Section Six deals with the benefits of traveling, as the author illustrates some of the rules governing safe travel, especially for a woman traveling alone. She writes about the danger she encountered when the airplane tires blew while the plane was above the Himalayan Mountains, and when she walked alone in some remote places. She provides humorous stories dealing with language differences in European countries. One essay extols the value of having a competent travel agent and tour guide, again with anecdotes that identify the relationship she had with agents who prepared some of her trips. Finally, the book answers the most frequently asked question of experienced travelers: Whats your favorite place? The Penguins Ate My Postcards is an enjoyable collection of informal, personal essays that will keep you interested in the people and places being featured as they give you a strong impression of the location in which the events occurred. These essays are not the result of someones imagination; the incidents actually happened, and the author was an eye-witness to them. As you read, youll recognize that the author has separated life into serious situations and light, humorous moods, but she treats all the participants with the respect and sensitivity necessary to tell their stories. Perhaps, after you read The Penguins Ate My Postcards youll want to explore the world and find your own adventures. Happy reading.

Book Description :

This richly illustrated field guide serves as an introduction to the wildflowers and plant communities of the southern Appalachians and the rolling hills of the adjoining piedmont. Rather than organizing plants, including trees, shrubs, and herbaceous plants, by flower color or family characteristics, as is done in most guidebooks, botanist Tim Spira takes a holistic, ecological approach that enables the reader to identify and learn about plants in their natural communities. This approach, says Spira, better reflects the natural world, as plants, like other organisms, don't live in isolation; they coexist and interact in myriad ways. Full-color photo keys allow the reader to rapidly preview plants found within each of the 21 major plant communities described, and the illustrated species description for each of the 340 featured plants includes fascinating information about the ecology and natural history of each plant in its larger environment. With this new format, readers can see how the mountain and piedmont landscapes form a mosaic of plant communities that harbor particular groups of plants. The volume also includes a glossary, illustrations of plant structures, and descriptions of sites to visit. Whether you're a beginning naturalist or an expert botanist, this guidebook is a useful companion on field excursions and wildflower walks, as well as a valuable reference.

First published in 1999, Worlds Apart examined the nature of poverty through the stories of real people in three remote rural areas of the United States: New England, Appalachia, and the Mississippi Delta. In this new edition, Duncan returns to her original research, interviewing some of the same people as well as some new key informants. Duncan provides powerful new insights into the dynamics of poverty, politics, and community change. "Duncan, through in-depth investigation and interviews, concludes that only a strong civic culture, a sense among citizens of community and the need to serve that community, can truly address poverty. . . . Moving and troubling. Duncan has created a remarkable study of the persistent patterns of poverty and power."—Kirkus Reviews "The descriptions of rural poverty in Worlds Apart are interesting and read almost like a novel."—Choice

Book Description :

An Award-Winning Historian Dramatically Re-Creates a Turning Point of the Civil War It was one of the most startling events of the civil war, the "hour of destiny" for the Union. Faced with the prospect of catastrophic defeat, the North's greatest generals--Ulysses Grant, William Tecumseh Sherman, George Thomas, and Phil Sheridan--were commanding a battle for the besieged city of Chattanooga, Tennessee. Suddenly, as an aghast Grant and Thomas watched, the beleaguered federal troops began a headlong, climactic, seemingly suicidal charge up the face of a six-hundred-foot-high mountain ridge overlooking the city, under ferocious fire from the Confederate infantry that held the ridge. The siege of Chattanooga and its stuffing turnabout form the core of Wiley Sword's lively narrative. Dozens of previously unpublished photographs, maps, and excepts from private journals, and letters enhance this vivid account. Written with novelistic flair and a historian's authority, Mountains Touched with Fire captures every side of this crucial Civil War battle whose aftermath sealed the fate of the South.
