When Lou Schell and her husband Fletcher first read Charles Kuralt's America, the two were captivated by the stories of his travels and the people he met along the way. The Schell's began planning their dream trip: a year-long Odyssey tracing Kuralt's route around the country, visiting his favorite U.S. locations during their most scenic seasons. They would spend time in each town he'd chronicled, perhaps even meeting some of the characters he'd described so vividly. Fletcher's sudden death put an end to that dream for awhile, but Lou couldn't shake the feeling this was a trip she was supposed to take. At the age of 77, Lou Schell gathered her children to her home on a Sunday afternoon and presented them with the news: she would be spending the next year traveling America - and she would be spending their inheritance to do it. Her children's response? "Go for it." While Lou began the trip with her 72 year old sister Janie, Janie was unable to complete the trip. Undaunted, Lou continued on alone. For the next several months, she drove from city to city, staying a full month in each location for so she could fully experience its culture, people, food and ambiance. In the pages of Revisiting America you'll join Lou as she shares a courtyard--and snacks--with Iggy the Iguana in Key West, dines at The Fat Hen restaurant in Charleston and takes an intrepid stroll across a mile high swinging bridge in Blowing Rock, North Carolina. Join this ever-young adventurer as she milks life for all it's worth, making friends from New Orleans to Taos, and Boothbay Harbor, Maine to Ketchikan, Alaska, and proving to everyone who hears her story that it's never too late to follow your dream.

Here, for the first time, is the private and most intimate correspondence of one of America's most influential and incisive journalists--Hunter S. Thompson. In letters to a Who's Who of luminaries from Norman Mailer to Charles Kuralt, Tom Wolfe to Lyndon Johnson, William Styron to Joan Baez--not to mention his mother, the NRA, and a chain of newspaper editors--Thompson vividly catches the tenor of the times in 1960s America and channels it all through his own razor-sharp perspective. Passionate in their admiration, merciless in their scorn, and never anything less than fascinating, the dispatches of The Proud Highway offer an unprecedented and penetrating gaze into the evolution of the most outrageous raconteur/provocateur ever to assault a typewriter.

From the king of “Gonzo” journalism and bestselling author who brought you Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas comes another astonishing volume of letters by Hunter S. Thompson. Brazen, incisive, and outrageous as ever, this second volume of Thompson’s private correspondence is the highly anticipated follow-up to The Proud Highway. When that first book of letters appeared in 1997, Time pronounced it "deliriously entertaining"; Rolling Stone called it "brilliant beyond description"; and The New York Times celebrated its "wicked humor and bracing political conviction." Spanning the years between 1968 and 1976, these never-before-published letters show Thompson building his legend: running for sheriff in Aspen, Colorado; creating the seminal road book Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas; twisting political reporting to new heights for Rolling Stone; and making sense of it all in the landmark Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72. To read Thompson's dispatches from these years—addressed to the author's friends, enemies, editors, and creditors, and such notables as Jimmy Carter, Tom Wolfe, and Kurt Vonnegut—is to read a raw, revolutionary eyewitness account of one of the most exciting and pivotal eras in American history.

Part diary and part reportage, The Soccer War is a remarkable chronicle of war in the late twentieth century. Between 1958 and 1980, working primarily for the Polish Press Agency, Kapuscinski covered twenty-seven revolutions and coups in Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East. Here, with characteristic cogency and emotional immediacy, he recounts the stories behind his official press dispatches—searing firsthand accounts of the frightening, grotesque, and comically absurd aspects of life during war. The Soccer War is a singular work of journalism.

Cullather has written an engrossing history of how the United States government, along with private philanthropies like the Ford and Rockefeller foundations, aimed to win the hearts and bodies of rural Asia in the post World War II decades by crafting strategies to develop and modernize agriculture and the peasant’s way of life. He explains how America used foreign aid, modernization theory, nutrition, statistics, and technology, to try to reconstruct the social and political order of the decolonized and disadvantaged countries in the region. Initially the issue of how best to intervene in Asia’s rural countryside was contentious, with clashing visions of development and humanitarian aid being argued throughout the 50’s and 60’s. Ultimately, one strategy displaced all the others—the “Green Revolution” and the ability to feed millions through the miracle of genetically designed dwarf strains of grain and rice. Cullather provides a detailed explanation of how this policy of feeding Asian peasants became the single strategy of “progress” adopted by the US rather than industrialization or land reform. As current controversy swirls about how best to aid Africa in the crisis of nation-building, famine, and a poverty-stricken peasantry, the story of the U.S. interventions in Asia become starkly relevant.
