Craig Johnson

Library Journal Johnson's established formula (The Cold Dish; A Serpent's Tooth) works again in his 11th Walt Longmire mystery. When the largest T. rex skeleton, nicknamed "Jen," is discovered in Wyoming's Absaroka County, a chain of strange events follows. The body of rancher Danny Lone Elk is found floating in a pond, and Sheriff Longmire becomes entangled in another complex case. As the FBI, the media, the Cheyenne Conservancy, and a deputy U.S. attorney general establish themselves as heavy players in the contest for the priceless "Jen," the mystery surrounding Danny's death becomes crucially intertwined with the dispute over ownership of the bones. As usual, Walt and Henry Standing Bear battle an army of thugs, politicians, protective family members, and bureaucracy in their quest to "save Jen." Verdict Beloved series sidekicks, Johnson's trademark humor, Walt's recurring visions, and a winding plot make for satisfying reading. The author efficiently sets up a jumping-off point for the next Longmire installment while neatly resolving Lone Elk's strange death. Not to be missed.-Jeffrey W.

David McCullough

Library Journal McCullough (John Adams; 1776) effectively blends impeccable writing with historical rigor and strong character definition in his biography of Wright brothers Wilbur, the abstract thinker and introvert; and Orville, the extrovert and hands-on doer. They had limited formal education, with the author instead attributing his subjects' success to industry, imagination, and persistence, as seen in their early enterprises as newspaper publishers, printers, and bicycle salesmen in Dayton, OH. Credit is also accorded to their widowed father, Bishop Milton Wright, as well as their sister Katharine for their support of "Ullam" (Wilbur) and "Bubs" (Orville). Highlights of McCullough's narrative include his discussions of the Wrights' innovative conception of wing-warping as a means of flight control; the brothers' first controlled, powered, and sustained heavier-than-air human flight at Kitty Hawk, NC, on December 17, 1903; the issuance of the Wright flying machine patent #821,393 on May 22, 1906; the Ohioans' ongoing search for markets abroad; and the elder Wright's perfect flying demonstrations at Le Mans, France, even as Orville was nearly killed in a similar performance before army brass at Fort Myer, VA. The author closes with the incorporation of the Wright Company, patent infringement suits filed against competitor Glenn Curtiss, and the deaths of Wilbur (1912), Milton (1917), Katharine (1929), and Orville (1948). VERDICT A signal contribution to Wright historiography. Highly recommended for academicians interested in the history of flight, transportation, or turn-of-the-century America; general readers; and all libraries.-John Carver Edwards, formerly with Univ. of Georgia Libs.
