The first of its kind, we bring you a unique volume of twenty-one unpublished gems from one of the twentieth century’s most popular and prolific writers. Exploring the creative process of an American original, the Louis L’Amour’s Lost Treasures project will uncover the hidden history behind the author’s best known novels . . . and his most mysterious and ambitious unfinished works.
In this first collection, Beau L’Amour presents many never-before-seen manuscripts. Using his father’s handwritten notes, journal entries, and correspondence, along with his own memories, Beau uncovers how and why they were written, as well as speculating about the ways they might have ended.
These selections celebrate L’Amour’s vision and virtuosity, including the first seven chapters of a powerful novel about the Trail of Tears, a chilling Western horror story, and a tale of the American Revolution featuring a character related to L’Amour’s well-known Sackett family. At the other end of the spectrum are classic adventures, such as The Golden Tapestry, set in 1960s Istanbul, as well as several uniquely different attempts at what would have been the most profoundly intimate of all of L’Amour’s novels, a saga of reincarnation that stretches from a time before time, to the period of Alexander the Great, and on to Warlord-Era China.
Illustrated with rare photographs and copies of handwritten notes, this book reveals the L’Amour you have never known, his personal struggles as a writer, and the contest between mortality and a literary legacy too big for one life to contain. Louis L’Amour’s Lost Treasures is a project created to release some of the author’s more unconventional manuscripts from the family archives. In this book, Beau L’Amour takes the reader on a guided tour through many of the finished and unfinished short stories, novels, and treatments that his father was never able to publish during his lifetime. L’Amour’s never-before-seen first novel, No Traveller Returns, will also be released as a Lost Treasures publication, followed by Louis L’Amour’s Lost Treasures: Volume 2.
Additionally, many beloved classics will be rereleased with an exclusive Lost Treasures postscript featuring previously unpublished material, including outlines, plot notes, and alternate drafts. These postscripts tell the story behind the stories that millions of readers have come to know and cherish.
This highly illustrated account covers the full history of Harry Ferguson's tractor products from his pioneering work before the 1930s to the merger with Massey in 1957. The author has had access to fresh archive material and has interviewed many of the surviving men who were associated with Ferguson. The appeal of the Fergie lay in its lightness and utility, and also in the system of mechanized farming of which it was a part. Throughout the book, reference is made to the implements which lay at the heart of the system.

• Re-flute worn cutters
• And much more!
With detailed descriptions of every procedure, essential mathematical rules and calculations for use in the workshop, and a number of illustrative figures, this book stands as an invaluable reference for those with an interest in practicing hands-on toolmaking processes.

Where there’s smoke there’s fire! And where there’s fire, there’s Steven Raichlen. Following the breakout success of Project Smoke, the New York Times best-seller that brought Raichlen’s Barbecue! Bible series to a new generation, comes Project Fire: a stunning, full-color celebration of the best of contemporary grilling from America’s master of live-fire cooking.
Drawing on a combination of classic and boldly contemporary techniques, Raichlen presents 100 inspired recipes that capture the full range of what grillers want to cook today. Consider your basic steak. Raichlen starts with the iconic: a T-bone grilled over direct heat, smartly tattooed with grill marks and lavished (the way the pros do it) with sizzling beef fat. Then he teaches a technique new to most of us: reverse-searing. This approach allows you to grill a monster steak, such as a beef tomahawk, to perfection while also imparting a haunting smoky flavor. Of course, there’s a Caveman Sirloin: meat seared right on the coals, as dramatic as grilling gets. Plus, here’s how to blow-torch a veal chop, and how to spit-roast whole cauliflower on a rotisserie. Learn to grill mussels in hay, squash on a salt slab, and salmon steaks on a shovel over a campfire.
From breakfast (Bacon and Egg Quesadilla) to cocktails (Grilled Sangria), from veggies (Caveman Cabbage and Smoke-Roasted Carrots) to dessert (Grilled “Piña Colada” and Cedar-Planked Pears with Amaretti and Mascarpone), Project Fire offers a radically righteous new take on live-fire cooking from the man who reinvented modern American grilling.
From the starting handles and pan seats of the 1930s to the four-wheel drive machines with computer-management systems common by the year 2000, Seventy Years of Farm Tractors traces the evolution of the farm tractor.
Covering a total of 100 manufacturers in alphabetic order, author Brian Bell gives a history of each company and its major models. He pays particular attention to the important developments of the classic period, from the 1950s to the 1990s.
Illustrated with a wealth of photographs and extracts from sales literature, this informative text provides a complete overview. There are even special features on items such as hydraulic systems and cold-starting aids.
As more and more people join the do-it-yourself revolution, they are breathing new life into many time-honored skills and crafts. Blacksmithing is among the trades that are enjoying a resurgence for both practical and artistic uses, yet there is not an abundance of readily accessible information available to beginning blacksmiths to help them get started and understand the craft.
Author Ryan Ridgway, a veterinarian and blacksmith with more than 15 years of metalworking experience, hopes to fill that void with this comprehensive volume geared toward answering the many questions that new blacksmiths often have. By explaining the physics of moving metal, the different styles of anvils and forges, and alternative fuel sources, Ridgway sets his book apart from less-detailed volumes. He presents 40 practical, easy-to-follow projects, showing aspiring blacksmiths how to make tools (such as hammers and chisels), farm implements (such as gate latches and hoof picks), and items for home use (including drawer pulls and candleholders).
Inside The Home Blacksmith:
• The evolution of blacksmithing around the world and the differences between the tools specific to each region
• The behavior of heated metal and the science of metalworking
• Setting up a shop safely and economically
• The heart of your shop, the anvil and forge, and the other essential tools
• Working with different types of steel, including how to salvage steel for different uses
• Techniques from beginning to advanced
• Step-by-step instructions for 40 blacksmithing projects: tools and other implements, as well as decorative pieces for personal use or sale
