Starlight
by Janet Muirhead Hill

This sequel to Miranda and Starlight reveals further adventure and bonding between ten-year-old Miranda Stevens and the two-year-old black stallion, Starlight. In this volume, Miranda once again takes it upon herself to rescue Starlight from a madman, not once, but twice.

When the Shady Hills Ranch groom, Higgins, is injured in a fall, Mr. Taylor hires a stranger named Hicks to take his place. Miranda finds Hicks abusing Starlight, but it's her word against his. Mr. Taylor seems willing to get rid of Starlight because the stranger says the horse is loco. In order to save Starlight, Miranda steals him away at night and hides with him in a cave. She later learns that she was wrong about Mr. Taylor. He has fired Hicks and then helps find Miranda.

A stiff horse competition at the State Winter Fair pits Miranda and her friends against the "Magnificent Four," Miranda's classroom nemeses. Just before Miranda is to ride Chris's horse Queen in her event, Hicks, seeking revenge,tries to poison Queen. Once again, Miranda fights to save Starlight. In the end, Starlight saves her from Hicks, whom, they learn, is an escapee from a mental institution.

CSI East Coast Episode II
by
Roger Grubbs

DescriptionSomething sinister is going on in a small college town near Montgomery, Alabama. What begins as a series of routine pranks turns out to be much more, and before long the FBI is called upon to solve the mystery.

In a strange turn of events, something tragic happens! A total of sixteen young women go missing in a single night. To complicate matters further, the local officials are instructed to keep a lid on these disappearances. They explain the situation as a simple college prank at the all girls' school, but when a body is found with no plausible cause of death, suddenly the stakes are much higher. How did an innocent panty raid turn into murder?

Choosing to turn the lead over to a new unit called CSI East Coast;, the FBI takes a low profile in the investigation. Samantha Powers, an up-and-coming CSI agent, known by her friends as Sam is puzzled by this approach. She is now charged with the task of solving the crime; the only problem: nobody is willing to admit a crime has even occurred. Her partner Jonathan West, a well-known novelist, is her only aid.

The CSI East Coast team has barely worked together for a total of two weeks during which time they solved one of the greatest murder mysteries of the city of New York. Now they are expected to do it again. Join us in this thriller as we embark on a new endeavor: CSI East Coast Episode II.

It's a Long Story: My Life
by
Willie Nelson

DescriptionWhat I say is that this is the story of my life, told as clear as a Texas sky and in the same rhythm that I lived it.

It's a story of restlessness and the purity of the moment and living right. Of my childhood in Abbott, Texas, to the Pacific Northwest, from Nashville to Hawaii and all the way back again. Of selling vacuum cleaners and encyclopedias while hosting radio shows and writing song after song, hoping to strike gold.

It's a story of true love, wild times, best friends, and barrooms, with a musical sound track ripping right through it.

My life gets lived on the road, at home, and on the road again, tried and true, and I've written it all down from my heart to yours.

Signed,
Willie Nelson
