A “haunting meditation on trust, hope and love” by a woman who adopts and trains a Golden Retriever puppy to become a search-and-rescue dog (People). In the wake of the Oklahoma City bombing, Susannah Charleson’s attention was caught by a newspaper photograph of a canine handler, his exhausted face buried in the fur of his search-and-rescue dog. Susannah, a dog lover and pilot with search experience herself, was so moved by the image that she decided to volunteer with a local canine team, plunging herself into an astonishing new world. While the team worked long hours for nonexistent pay and often heart-wrenching results, Charleson discovered the joy of working in partnership with a canine friend and the satisfaction of using their combined skills to help her fellow human beings. Once she qualified to train a dog of her own, Charleson adopted Puzzle—a smart, spirited Golden Retriever puppy who exhibited unique aptitudes as a working dog, but was a bit less interested in the role of compliant house pet. Scent of the Missing is the story of Charleson’s adventures with Puzzle as they search for a lost teen; an Alzheimer’s patient wandering in the cold; and signs of the crew amid the debris of the space shuttle Columbia disaster—all while unraveling the mystery of the bond between humans and dogs. “A riveting view of both the human animal bond and the training of search and rescue dogs. All dog lovers and people interested in training service dogs should read this book.” —Temple Grandin, author of Animals Make Us Human

Erich Beasley likes to laugh, and he likes to laugh with the comedians that make him laugh.Comics’ Comicsis the result of Beasley’s pursuit to meet his favorite stand-up comedians and hair-brained actors and have them draw an off-the-cuff cartoon in his journal. The illustrations run the gamut of the comedy spectrum, from base and slightly offensive to drop-dead funny and downright strange. Some of these comedians seem to be practiced illustrators, while others seem barely literate. Along with every illustration, Beasley has included a photograph of these comedians in the their natural habitats—backstage at clubs, usually late at night—as well as brief anecdotes about approaching these people with his strange but sincere request: Will you draw me something funny? With original illustrations from the likes of Jeff Garlin, David Cross, Janeane Garofalo, Andy Dick, Robert Smigel, Molly Shannon, Eugene Mirman, Jim Breuer, Max Brooks, Rob Cantrell, Julia Sweeney, Monty Python's Terry Jones and many, many more, this book is sure to appeal to fans of comedy and celebrity.

"This book, a polished, winding meditation on the theory and fractiousness of motorcycles, celebrates both their eccentric history and the wary pleasures of touring."—The New Yorker In a book that is "a must for anyone who has loved a motorcycle" (Oliver Sacks), Melissa Pierson captures in vivid, writerly prose the mysterious attractions of motorcycling. She sifts through myth and hyperbole: misrepresentations about danger, about the type of people who ride and why they do so. The Perfect Vehicle is not a mere recitation of facts, nor is it a polemic or apologia. Its vivid historical accounts-the beginnings of the machine, the often hidden tradition of women who ride, the tale of the defiant ones who taunt death on the racetrack-are intertwined with Pierson's own story, which, in itself, shows that although you may think you know what kind of person rides a motorcycle, you probably don't.
