Spring Break! What a great time to relax and read a good book. Drop by the library and browse through some great new titles.

NEW BOOK ARRIVALS: (All quotes are from the publishers’ summaries)

The Killing of Crazy Horse by Thomas Powers (978.004 POW)

"Tom Powers’s masterpiece, long awaited and very worth the wait. It’s one of the finest books yet written about the American West—dense with insight, filled with fascinating characters, including a fine portrait of the enigmatic warrior Crazy Horse."

—Larry McMurtry

Strategic Moves by Stuart Woods (F WOO Bar.19) Stone Barrington Series Book 19

"Stone Barrington is enjoying dinner at Elaine’s when his boss at Woodman & Weld, the law firm where Stone is ‘of counsel,’ walks in, sits down, and hands Stone a check for one million dollars."

Shattered by Karen Robards (F ROB)

"Secrets, betrayal, and a mysterious family history plague the heroine. Lisa Grant was a rising star in a prestigious law firm in Lexington, Kentucky, when the firm went bankrupt and she lost her job. With an ailing mother to care for, she takes the first job she can find: research assistant to District Attorney Scott Buchanan . . . as disagreeable as he is sexy."

Snow Blind by P. J. Tracy (F TRA Mon. 4) Monkeewrench novel 4

"January can be a bleak month in Minneapolis. So what better way to bring a little cheer to the good people of the city than sponsoring an old-fashioned snowman-building contest? But things take an awful turn when the dead bodies of police officers are discovered inside two of the snowmen."

Rescue by Anita Shreve (F SHR)

"A rookie paramedic pulls a young woman from her totaled car, a first rescue that begins a lifelong tangle of love and wreckage."

Hired Guns by Max Brand (WF BRA)

Billy Buel didn’t look like a man who could inspire fear. He was a slight man with boyish good looks and a gentle manner, but he was also a fearsome fighter with hands or guns or knives. . . For nine years a feud had raged between the Benchleys and the Camps. At last, they decided on a two-man duel to settle their grudge. Now Billy Buel, hired by the Camps, faced Ames Benchley for the showdown."

127 Hours: Between a Rock and a Hard Place by Aron Ralston (921 RAL)

"Hiking into the remote Utah canyonlands, Aron Ralston felt perfectly at home in the beauty of the natural world. Then, at 2:41 P.M., eight miles from his truck, in a deep and narrow slot canyon, an eight-hundred-pound boulder tumbled loose, pinning Aron’s right hand and wrist against the canyon wall. Through six days . . . with scant water, food, or warm clothing . . . Aron eliminated his escape options one by one."
