✏The Last Good Heist Book Summary : On Aug. 14, 1975, eight daring thieves ransacked 148 massive safe-deposit boxes at a secret bank used by organized crime, La Cosa Nostra, and its associates in Providence, R.I. The crooks fled with duffle bags crammed full of cash, gold, silver, stamps, coins, jewels and high-end jewelry. The true value of the loot has always been kept secret, partly because it was ill-gotten to begin with, and partly because there was plenty of incentive to keep its true worth out of the limelight. It's one thing for authorities to admit they didn't find a trace of goods worth from $3 million to $4 million, and entirely another when what was at stake was more accurately valued at about $30 million, the equivalent of $120 million today. It was the biggest single payday in the criminal history of the Northeast. Nobody came close, not the infamous James "Whitey" Bulger, not John "The Dapper Don" Gotti, not even the Brinks or Wells Fargo robbers. The heist was bold enough and big enough to rock the underworld to its core, and it left La Cosa Nostra in the region awash in turmoil that still reverberates nearly 38 years later. "The Last Good Heist" is the inside story of the robbery and its aftermath.

✏Owning It All Book Summary : This is a deeply felt and highly informed essay collection about life in the American west by one of the finest writers ever to emerge from that region. As theSeattle Timeshas said ofOwning It All: "You may never again see the American west in quite the same way if you take the time to view it through the eyes of William Kittredge. [This is a] stunning book." Having grown up on his family's cattle ranch in eastern Oregon, Kittredge directly confronts the contradictions and myths that lie at the heart of the Western experience: male freedom and female domesticity, the wild and the tame, self-interest and love of the land. William Kittredgegrew up on a cattle ranch in Southeast Oregon and farmed there until he was 33, after which he taught Creative Writing at the University of Montana. He is the author of several widely celebrated books on the Western experience, includingHole in the Sky(a memoir) andWe Are Not in This Together(a book of short fiction). This is a deeply felt and highly informed essay collection about life in the American west by one of the finest writers ever to emerge from that region.

Having grown up on his family's cattle ranch in eastern Oregon, Kittredge directly confronts the contradictions and myths that lie at the heart of the Western experience: male freedom and female domesticity, the wild and the tame, self-interest and love of the land. "These autobiographical essays about growing up in the West affirm Kittredge's place as one of our most astute Western writers."The Bloomsbury Review "Here is an important book. Not the least because of Kittredge's own wonderful prose style, which places this book in the company of such classics as Norman McLean'sA River Runs Through It, Ivan Doig'sHouse Made of Sky, John Graves'Goodbye to a River, D. L. Davis's rural essays, and Wallace Stegner'sWolf Willow. You ought not miss this fine book."Albuquerque Journal Magazine "Owning It Allestablishes [Kittredge] as one of this generation's most provocative and thoughtful observers of the American West as it is today, and how it came to be that way."The Kansas City Star "Brings together fourteen occasional pieces in which Kittredge attempts, in prose as hard and smooth as the pebbles in a mountain stream, to understand what it means to be a westerner."New York Newsday "Reading this richly detailed book is like listening to Hank Williams. Its twangy, melancholic strains cut to the bone."Booklist "[Kittredge] explores the meaning of the Western myth and its effects on the land, people, and wildlife of America. In some of the most perceptive writing, Kittredge critiques the movie Western and shows how recent pictures have drawn on that genre for their plots. In another essay, he mourns the virtual destruction of the grizzly bear south of the Canadian border. Taken together, these pieces present a land slowly dying from the effects of plow and oil field. A dark vision to be sure, but one to be pondered."Library Journal "An illustrative and insightful collection of essays on the American West . . . Autobiographical sketches describe his early years in [an] isolated community and are full of rodeo memories and ruminations on his buckaroo days. Other essays consider the boom-town phenomenon, the 'redneck,' the grizzly bear, the renaissance in Native American art. Most notably, the author offers a critique of the popular view of the Westwhich is, according to Kittredge, a disguised mythology of co
