Book signing for "Augusts in Africa"
by Tom McIntrye
Sat Dec 3rd 12-2 pm

Americans from Roosevelt to Hemingway to Ruark to Capstick to Robert Jones defined Africa in ways that no European colonist ever would or could. In Augusts in Africa, Thomas McIntyre presents the stories he has gathered from four decades of safari-ing in Africa, and from among the most transforming days, weeks, and months of his life.
For those who know it well, these tales may read like accurate reflections of their own experiences on the continent. For others who have journeyed to Africa only briefly, or even not at all, there is a transporting insight to be found in them. And if there is more than one account on the hunting of the Cape buffalo, that is only because it, the buffalo, may simply represent the ideal combination (the perfect game ) of size, strength, intelligence, and vehemence to be found in any large wild animal and is therefore indicative of what draws us back again and again to Africa.
Whether crouched in a blind for hours until he can clearly make out the individual rosettes on a leopard's hide or listening to the professional hunter utter Oh oh, you should run when faced with a charging elephant cow, Tom McIntyre brings to life amazing African animals and exciting expeditions in Augusts in Africa.

Tom McIntyre has written hundreds of articles appearing in Sports Afield, Field & Stream, Gray's Sporting Journal, Petersen's Hunting, American Hunter, Men's Journal, Outdoor Life, Bugle, Sporting Classics, Fly Rod & Reel, as well as in a score of anthologies. Tom is on the mastheads as a contributing editor of both Sports Afield and Field & Stream magazines. He resides in Sheridan.

Book Signing for "An Obvious Fact"
by Craig Johnson
Tuesday, December 20th 5-7 pm

In the midst of the largest motorcycle rally in the world, a young biker is run off the road and ends up in critical condition. When Sheriff Walt Longmire and his good friend Henry Standing Bear are called to Hulett, Wyoming - the nearest town to America's first national monument, Devils Tower - to investigate, things start getting complicated. As competing biker gangs; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms; a military-grade vehicle donated to the tiny local police force by a wealthy entrepreneur; and Lola, the real-life femme fatale and namesake for Henry's '59 Thunderbird (and, by extension, Walt's granddaughter) come into play, it rapidly becomes clear that there is more to get to the bottom of at this year's Sturgis Motorcycle Rally than a bike accident.

Yum Balls (also known as Rum Balls)
recipe from
"Butter Celebrates"
by Rosie Daykin


1 cup dark chocolate chips

2/3 cup sour cream, full fat

1/3 cup almond paste

3 cups vanilla wafer cookies, ground (approximately one box)

2 cups chocolate crumbs

2 cups icing sugar

1/3 cup dark cocoa

2/3 cup white rum

1/2 cup butter, melted

2 cups chocolate sprinkles

1 (11 x 17-inch) rimmed cookie sheet lined with parchment paper


makes: 4 dozen balls


1. In a double boiler over medium heat, or a small heatproof bowl placed over a pot of simmering water, melt the chocolate chips. Remove from the heat.
2. In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine the melted chocolate with the sour cream and almond paste and mix on medium speed until well combined.
3. Empty the box of vanilla wafers into the food processor or blender and blend on high until the wafers are finely ground.
4. In a large bowl, combine the ground wafers, chocolate crumbs, icing sugar, cocoa, rum and melted butter. Stir with a large spoon or spatula until well combined and then add to the ingredients in the mixer.
5. Turn the mixer speed to medium and mix until everything has pulled together nicely to form a dark and delicious paste, scraping down the sides of the bowl at least once during the mixing process.
6. Refrigerate the dough in the mixer bowl for at least 1 hour or even overnight.
7. Using a small ice cream scoop, drop the balls onto the prepared cookie sheet. Place the chocolate sprinkles in a bowl large enough that you can get both your hands into it, to avoid sprinkles flying all around the kitchen. Roll each ball between your palms until smooth and then drop it into the chocolate sprinkles. Scoop up some sprinkles in each hand and press them around a ball and roll it again to fully coat.
May your days be filled with peace, hope, and joy this holiday season.

As always, thank you for your business, loyalty, and support.
