The Last Cowboys: A Pioneer Family in the New West
by John Branch
For generations, the Wrights of southern Utah have raised cattle and world-champion saddle-bronc riders―some call them the most successful rodeo family in history. Now Bill and Evelyn Wright, parents to 13 children and grandparents to many more, find themselves struggling to hang on to the majestic landscape where they’ve been running cattle for 150 years as the West is transformed by urbanization, battered by drought, and rearranged by public-land disputes. Could rodeo, of all things, be the answer?

An unforgettable book by one of the finest reporters of our time, The Last Cowboys is a moving tribute to an American way of life.

New Releases for June 2018!
Coming June 26th!
Harry Potter is getting all spruced up for a new generation of readers.

This year is the 20th anniversary of the American publication of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, and to mark the occasion, Scholastic has tapped children’s book author/illustrator Brian Selznick (The Invention of Hugo Cabret) to design new jackets for J.K. Rowling's blockbuster series.

Selznick favors an antiquey black-and-white style, and his Potter jackets continue that theme. When placed side-by-side chronologically, the seven books create a single image that tells Harry’s story, from his arrival at No. 4 Privet Drive to the final Battle of Hogwarts.
