It's true, what many say. Time and age have a way of rounding off the edges and making jagged pieces of the past seem clear and smooth and bright. But for those of us growing up in the small prairie town of Mandan, North Dakota, in the 1950s, those truly were times when every day was an adventure, every neighbor was a story, and everyone belonged somewhere because we were all connected and trusted others to know that. Young Moose knows it's going to be an unusual year when his new teacher looks like a goat and is even ornerier, a neighborhood posse is hot on the trail of a felon, and the ancient ghosts are dancing in the light of a full moon. His days are full of trials including the cancelling of Christmas, tittering on the brink of flunking a grade, and losing his position as catcher on the baseball team. It's also a time of runaway horses and bucking pigs, a quest for the truth of the birds and the bees, and of taking a giant step towards manhood. Come follow Moose and his friends; an Indian Shaman, a Gypsy King, and a mystical boy named Mickey as they travel through the adventures. Kirkus Review states: "Bergsgaard opens his book with a clear objective: 'I wrote this collection of short stories from a ten-year-old boy's eyes with the interpretation of a sixty year old man.' Through dozens of short sketches, the author sustains a childlike perception of a beguiling but bewildering adult reality...(appealing to) readers nostalgic for a time of childhood innocence in the rural American lifestyle of the 1950s. Bergsgaard's writing is suggestive of an oral storyteller with impeccable timing and taste; his language reflects the great American vernacular at its most lean and direct. ...these are emotionally engaging episodes of childhood that evoke the odyssey of a 20th-century Huck Finn." L.D. Bergsgaard spent his boyhood years in Mandan, North Dakota, a town steeped in the history of General George Custer and which declares itself as Where the West Begins. L.D. and the neighborhood gang, before that was a dangerous noun, spent unfettered days of play and exploration, not only of their small world but of each other.

Corrie is resolute in her belief that slavery is wrong, and that she should do what she can to help Lincoln get elected, but mounting conflict within the Hollister family makes her realize that taking a stand sometimes goes deeper than drawing a political line.

After the long winter, spring came at last, and the little prairie town woke up. A year before, there had only been a site; now there was a town with two streets; and new settlers came every day. It was a wonderful place to live in, and a wonderful time to be alive. Laura was fourteen, young enough to get into trouble at school, and to worry about her first party; old enough to earn money, and to walk home from church with Almanzo Wilder. This is a story full of life and variety: one of the most vigorous of this fine series. Laura Ingalls Wilder's enchanting series of books tells the story of a girl - herself - growing up in the years when the American frontier was slowly being pushed westward and the pioneering families were working their claims, breaking the untilled land, raising the first settlements.

When death threatens a pilot at the nearby air training base, seventeen-year-old Jack must use a secretly-acquired skill to save a life and affirm his own identity to his over protective mother. Jack Waters sees his small prairie town turned upside down in World War II, when an air base to train English flyers is set up nearby. It's 1943, no one knows who will win the war, and Canadians are taking a major role in the fighting. This includes training British Royal Air Force pilots in many centres across Canada. Even though Jack can't enlist, he secretly learns how to fly. Good thing, because when a friend's plane comes down on the prairie, Jack has no choice but to make his first solo flight—to try and save a life. The Flight of the Tiger Moth is the thrilling story of one boy's journey to become a man and find his path in the world. It also gives young readers a glimpse of Canadian lives during World War II, and of one more Canadian contribution to winning the war. Mary Woodbury is the best-selling author of the young adult title The Ghost in the Machine, the Polly McDoodle Mystery Series, and Jess and the Runaway Grandpa, a finalist in the Silver Birch Young Readers Choice Award, and a Canadian Children's Book Centre "Outstanding Title of the Year."

Die schlimmste Dürre seit Jahrzehnten lastet wie heißes Blei auf dem ländlichen Städtchen Kiewarra mitten im Nirgendwo. Das Vieh der Farmer stirbt, die Menschen fürchten um ihre Existenz. Als Luke Hadler, seine Frau und ihr Sohn Billy erschossen aufgefunden werden, glauben alle, dass der Farmer durchgedreht ist und erweiterten Suizid begangen hat. Aber Sergeant Raco hat seine Zweifel. Aaron Falk kehrt nach zwanzig Jahren zum ersten Mal nach Kiewarra zurück - zur Beerdigung seines Jugendfreundes Luke. Bald brechen alte Wunden wieder auf; das Misstrauen wirft seine langen Schatten auf die Kleinstadt. Und in der Hitze steigt der Druck immer mehr ... Ein beklemmender Thriller um Heimat, Loyalität und Vergebung. «The Dry katapultiert Jane Harper sofort in die Elite der Thrillerautoren. Phantastische Charaktere, ein einzigartiges und unglaublich atmosphärisches Setting, ein atemberaubender Plot. Dieses Buch hat einfach alles.» (John Lescroart) «Eines der beeindruckendsten Debüts, die ich je gelesen habe. Ich habe die glühende Hitze Australiens am eigenen Leib gespürt. Jedes einzelne Wort sitzt perfekt. Die Geschichte baut sich wie eine riesige Welle auf, bis sie schließlich auf die Erde kracht und alles auslöscht, was man vorher über diese fesselnde Geschichte gedacht hat. Lesen!» (David Baldacci, Bestsellerautor von «Der Auftrag», «Die Kampagne», «Am Limit»)
