A WRETCHED AND PRECARIOUS SITUATION by David Welky

From my cozy home, I am unsure how anyone survived early Arctic explorations or why they kept going back, but I certainly love reading about them. This book follows a two-year expedition that becomes a five-year expedition and involves a drunken ship captain, a murderer, and all sorts of other disasters. If you enjoy reading about disastrous polar expeditions from the comfort of your armchair as much as I do, this is for you.                                                         —Flannery

GHOSTLAND by Colin Dickey

The ubiquity of ghost stories, and their pervasiveness throughout human history and culture, makes it seem as if there is something... more…at work here. Dickey argues that there is indeed something more and that behind every ghost story are our history and our anxieties, past and present made manifest. Come with him as he journeys across America, hunting the ghosts that haunt our nation’s psyche, searching for the stories behind what goes bump in the night.                                                      —Jax
