Recent Acquisitions VIII

For review:
Countdown City by Ben H. Winters (First Look)
Because I loved the first book, reviewed here.
If You Could Be Mine by Sara Farizan (thanks, Jill at The O.W.L.!)
Wool by Hugh Howey (First Look)

Growing Up Shaker by Frances A. Carr
Ecotopia Emerging by Ernest Callenbach
Two utopian books in one week! I couldn't help picking up something at the Pleasant Hill Shaker Village (see Carr's book above), and I greatly enjoyed Ecotopia several years ago.
The Princesse de Cleves by Madame de Lafayette
The Kin of Ata are Waiting for You by Dorothy Bryant
Letters of a Hindoo Rajah by Elizabeth Hamilton
Grandfather Tales by Richard Chase
Local interest: Appalachian folklore.
The Ballad of Frankie Silver by Sharon McCrumb
Local interest fiction: Frankie Silver case in Burke County, 19th century.
The Unredeemed Captive by John Demos
The Valley of Shenandoah by George Tucker
I was SO EXCITED to find this, especially since I don't think I'd heard of it before. This is a novel about life in rural Virginia, originally written in 1824. *squee*
The Carolinians by Jane Barry
Local interest historical fiction: Battle of Guilford Courthouse.
