The Annie Year
a novel by Stephanie Ash

Small town life explodes like a mismanaged meth lab, in vivid and hilarious detail, through the eyes of Tandy Caide, CPA. When Tandy decides to take life into her own hands, no one—not her husband, best friend, or The Order of the Pessimists (for whom she serves as Treasurer and sacrificial punching bag)—will get in her way. For fans of both Richard Russo and Gilmore Girls!

Stephanie Ash is a former editor at Mpls.St.Paul Magazine. She lives in Minneapolis and Mankato, Minnesota, and is originally from rural Iowa.

book Great Plains Indians
nonfiction by David Wishart

From the University of Nebraska Press' Great Plains Series comes this important book about  indigenous American culture. 

A multitude of forces have profoundly shaped Indian lives on the Great Plains. The environment, religion, tradition, guns, disease, government policy—all have written their way into this history. Historical geographer and University of Nebraska-Lincoln professor David J. Wishart's Great Plains Indians covers thirteen thousand years of fascinating, dynamic, and often tragic history.

David Wishart is a professor of geography at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln.
