August 2015




August is upon us and soon school will be starting along with all the school activities and sporting events that make the days hectic. But there's still time to get in a few camping trips and road trips, or to just hang out in the shade and read a good book. We will be happy to help you find a great read. We carry national bestsellers as well as books by local and regional authors.
We also carry BLM land status maps, 7.5 min. topographic maps, the Cloud Peak Wilderness maps, the Bighorn National Forest maps, and road maps of Wyoming and Montana.

Book Signing for "Badlands"

by C.J. Box

Sunday, August 9th 1:00 pm 


Be sure to join us when we host C.J. Box for a book signing for his newest book, "Badlands".  It's a great read and you'll enjoy getting to know more about Cassie Dewell from "The Highway".

 Following the death of Cody Hoyt in The Highway (2013), Hoyt's partner, Cassie Dewell, now takes center stage as the new chief investigator in Grimstad, North Dakota, in the heart of the Bakken shale oil fields. Though she's still trying to catch the Lizard King, the truck-driving serial killer, she's instantly plunged into a whole new set of troubles as rival gangs clash and body parts are strewn all over town in the dead of winter. Caught in the middle is Kyle Westergaard, a 12-year-old born with fetal alcohol syndrome, who sees and knows more than anyone would ever suspect. Box's brilliant choice of setting is both timely and the perfect frozen hellscape for his story; the modern-day boomtown's runaway inflation, man camps, and pent-up masculine energy hearken back to lawless days on the western frontier.

Recipe taken from "The Coconut Oil Cure" from Sonoma Press

Gilled Orange-Coconut Chicken
Paleo-friendly Gluten-Free
Oranges make for an agreeable marinade ingredient for this chicken because the sweetness merges with the pungent garlic and fresh thyme to create a classic flavor. Thyme is a delicate herb that contains many powerful antioxidants, including an impressive amount of vitamin C. Thyme is also an antimicrobial, which means it can ensure your marinated meat is safe to eat without any contamination.
4 chicken legs

1 (15-ounce) can coconut milk

Juice of 2 oranges

1/4 cup melted coconut oil

1/4 cup chopped fresh thyme

3 teaspoons minced garlic

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Orange wedges for garnish


1. Pierce the chicken pieces all over with a fork and transfer them to a large sealable plastic bag.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the coconut milk, orange juice, coconut oil, thyme, garlic, and salt.

3. Pour the marinade into the bag with the chicken and press out as much air as possible.

4. Seal the bag and turn to coat the chicken thoroughly with the marinade.

5. Put the bag in the refrigerator and let sit for 4 hours or overnight, turning at least once.

6. Preheat a barbecue to medium-high heat.

7. Remove the chicken from the bag and grill it, turning at least once, until the chicken is cooked through and golden, about 20 minutes.

8. Serve with orange wedges. 

Robby Smith
The first week of August hangs at the very top of summer, the top of the live-long year, like the highest seat of a Ferris wheel when it pauses in its turning. The weeks that come before are only a climb from balmy spring, and those that follow a drop to the chill of autumn, but the first week of August is motionless, and hot. It is curiously silent, too, with blank white dawns and glaring noons, and sunsets smeared with too much color. Often at night there is lightning, but it quivers all alone.
