New Selections

The Peter White Public Library offers these recently added new titles.

Lake Fish: Modern Cooking with Freshwater Fish by Keane Amdahl.
A cookbook for those who want to make the most of their catches from the lakes and streams. The recipes in this volume focus on species found in the upper Great Lakes, in our local rivers, streams, big lakes, and smaller lakes. Many of the non-fish ingredients are foods that are commonly foraged, grown in gardens, or purchased from local farmers.

Prohibition in the Upper Peninsula: Booze & Bootleggers on the Border by Russell M. Magnaghi. Another local history volume from NMU history professor Dr. Magnaghi. This time he chronicles the raucous history of prohibition in the Upper Peninsula. Many in the UP were finding ways around the outright ban of alcohol that existed in Michigan from from 1917 to 1933, be it home-production, bootlegging, a “prescription” for alcohol, or by amassing large personal stashes just as the ban was going into effect. Enforcement largely fell on the newly formed Michigan Constabulary (State Police). The book touches on a variety of topics, including the dance-hall culture, and attitudes around the region towards other vices at the time. Illustrated with numerous images from the period.

Seven Stones to Stand or Fall: A Collection of Outlander Fiction by Diana Gabaldon.
If you can’t get enough of the exploits of the characters in the Outlander series, this book contains seven novellas which serve to fill in storylines and timelines not covered in the full Outlander novels. Five of these novellas are pre-existing material, and two are newly written. Book 9 in the Outlander series “Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone”, is not due out until at least 2018.

A Dog’s Way Home by W. Bruce Cameron.
From the author of the bestselling novel “A Dog’s Purpose”, which was turned into a feature film, and was one of the movies shown at the library last month. This is the third book in the Dog’s Purpose series, all of which are owned by the library. In this book, Lucas Ray discovers a puppy in an abandoned building, and they form a quick bond. The main problem is that the apartment he shares with his disabled mother does not allow dogs. Man and dog must find a routine that does not get them in trouble, which is difficult to achieve.
