Virgil; Chew, Kristina (translator)
152pp.Rendered in an idiom drawn from present-day nature guides, gardening handbooks, how-to manuals, and scientific treatises -- and in a style influenced by twentieth-century poetry -- this bold new translation seeks to renew our appreciation of a work often relegated to the pigeonhole of didactic poetry about farming. In doing so, it reveals the Georgics as a remarkable window on Roman conceptions of the natural world and of the place of human life within it -- and also conveys a sense of how daring were Virgil's poetics in their day. Footnotes offer a wealth of information on mythology, agriculture, wildlife, geography, and astronomy while highlighting the technical, scientific, ethnographic, and other registers of the poem.

Valentine, Rebecca and Thompson, Travis
Perry A Burgess was many things: Diarist, Pioneer, Prospector, Banker, Investor, Inventor - the list is long and varied. His name appears in numerous historical works published since the 1950s, yet much of his story has never been told. In 1866 he travelled to Montana with his uncles and 300 head of cattle up the Bloody Bozeman Trail during Sioux Chief Red Cloud's War. A pioneer of Colorado and one of the earliest settlers of Steamboat Springs, Burgess was a long-time friend and partner of some of the wealthiest businessmen in the nineteenth-century American West. Amongst them, his uncle Lewis Cheney, was one of the richest men in Boulder, Colorado. Together they developed the city's banking system while contributing to its cultural and social heritage. Raised Mormon, as boys they fell victim to rampant persecution, and Perry's own father died on the Mormon Trail during the exodus to Utah. For Burgess, those early years of a nomadic existence would leave their mark and nurture in him a thirst for adventure, influencing his path to the end of his life. Using Perry's diaries, family photographs, and newly discovered personal essays published in the Steamboat Pilot as their focus, Valentine and Thompson piece together the life of a remarkable man and his family, whose adventurous spirit was matched only by their willingness to risk all for the unknown. "Beyond the Land of Gold" provides an integral and heretofore missing piece of the history of the American Western Frontier and a snapshot into the life of one of its most intriguing characters. 528pp.
