Staying Cool with a Great Book

Magid Gray Fox Chaput Empire of SandI am not sure where you might live, but in the Scottsdale area – it is HOT!! What a great way to stay cool is to be indoors, with the air conditioning on, reading a new book or an old classic. Two books recently published are becoming fast favorites with the customers. Paul Magid completed his second book on General Crook, The Gray Fox: George Crook and the Indian Wars. It covers Crook’s time in Arizona during the 1870s and 1880s while exploring his role fighting the Sioux and Cheyenne. This is a must read if you are interested in the pivotal fighting in the Southwest or the Great Plains. Donald Chaput’s Empire of Sand: The Ehrenberg Quartzsite Parker Triangle: Myths, Mistakes, Had Times and a Few Hard Cases looks at the mining frontier in Arizona, touching on such colorful characters as Wyatt Earp, Nellie Cashman, Hi Jolly and Henry Wickenburg. If you are looking for something light to read, I recently acquired a number of Double D Westerns or Walker Westerns. Stop by the store or check out our website
