History and Adventure Books

American Massacre: The Tragedy at Mountain Meadows, September 1857 by Sally Denton - fascinating story of an unreported American tragedy
The Diamond Caper by Peter Mayle - not Mayle's best effort
Economics of Uncertainty by Professor Connel Fullenkamp  Ph. D. - decent lecture
Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates: The Forgotten Ware That Changed American History by Brian Kilmeade and Don Yaeger - OK history of the first Barbary Wars
The Emerald Mile: The Epic Story of the Fastest Ride in History Through the Heart of the Grand Canyon by Kevin Fedarko - must read account of the fastest rafting of the Grand Canyon
The Rope by Nevada Barr - one of my favorite of the series
Bone Deep Broth by Lya Mojica and Taylor Chen - making some broth
