Introducing Wyoming’s Sheriff Walt Longmire in this riveting novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Dry Bones, the first in the Longmire series, the basis for the hit Netflix original series LONGMIRE Craig Johnson's The Highwayman and An Obvious Fact are now available from Viking. Fans of Ace Atkins, Nevada Barr and Robert B. Parker will love this outstanding first novel, in which New York Times bestselling author Craig Johnson introduces Sheriff Walt Longmire of Wyoming’s Absaroka County. Johnson draws on his deep attachment to the American West to produce a literary mystery of stunning authenticity, and full of memorable characters. After twenty-five years as sheriff of Absaroka County, Walt Longmire’s hopes of finishing out his tenure in peace are dashed when Cody Pritchard is found dead near the Northern Cheyenne Reservation. Two years earlier, Cody has been one of four high school boys given suspended sentences for raping a local Cheyenne girl. Somebody, it would seem, is seeking vengeance, and Longmire might be the only thing standing between the three remaining boys and a Sharps .45-70 rifle. With lifelong friend Henry Standing Bear, Deputy Victoria Moretti, and a cast of characters both tragic and humorous enough to fill in the vast emptiness of the high plains, Walt Longmire attempts to see that revenge, a dish best served cold, is never served at all.
After decades of peace between the white and Native American communities of early American Wyoming, a young man who was once convicted for raping a Cheyenne girl is found dead, prompting sheriff Walt Longmire, his deputy Victoria Moretti, and friend Henry Standing Bear to investigate. A first novel. 25,000 first printing.

This volume is the first to present all four extant manuscripts of the Viandier de Taillevent. The texts of the 220 recipes are in their original French and a complete English translation is provided. Variants between the four manuscripts represent more than a century of modifications in gastronomic tastes and culinary practices in French seigneurial life. The commentary and notes trace the significance of these modifications and indicate the influence the Viandier exercised on more recent cookery books throughout Europe. This critical edition also includes a glossary and a bibliography. In addition, selected recipes have been adapted for modern use and arranged in a menu for six people.

This clever little volume was devised to provide hints on setting a modest but “well-ordered table” for the “young and inexperienced mistress of a household where a moderate income renders economy advisable.” Self-styled as a “Book of Rechauffes [warmed leftovers] together with many other approved receipts for the kitchen of a gentleman of moderate income,” this useful compilation includes recipes for dishes made from leftover fish and dressed fish, mutton, beef, veal, pork, poultry, and game, as well as economical recipes for soup, vegetable, sweets, pastry, cakes, preserves, liqueurs, pickles, and sauces. Miscellaneous thrifty methods for “keeping fish for several days," "keeping meat, game, or poultry in hot weather,” “removing taint from meat and poultry,” and many other household situations are also described. This edition of What To Do With the Cold Mutton was reproduced by permission from the volume in the collection of the American Antiquarian Society, Worcester, Massachusetts. Founded in 1812 by Isaiah Thomas, a Revolutionary War patriot and successful printer and publisher, the Society is a research library documenting the life of Americans from the colonial era through 1876. The Society collects, preserves, and makes available as complete a record as possible of the printed materials from the early American experience. The cookbook collection includes approximately 1,100 volumes.
A no-holds-barred account of life in the cut-throat world of large corporations, told in a unique humorous and ironical style. A world where millions are employed and are forever engaged in finding a balance between doing right for the organization and doing right for themselves. The domineering boss, the whining employee, the counter-productive policy-making, the jockeying for visibility, are all products of this interesting world. Not all, however, is as it appears on the Òsmooth and shinyÓ surface of this world. There are personal anxieties and fears which get carried into business interactions. Though informal outlets are available to people in corporations, mostly through the often innocuous art of ÒbitchingÓ, many of these subterranean currents never get recognized or discussed openly. Perhaps for the first time ever, this book discusses situations where these subtle (to the doer) and shameless (to the doee) acts often create outcomes that are both poignant and funny and, at times, downright disgusting. In the garb of humour and satire, this book delivers some hard-hitting management lessons. In doing so, however, Ankur may have inadvertently let out some never before talked about Òsecrets of successÓ of ÒThe ClubÓ that the Corporate world appears to be from outside. Readers of AnkurÕs blog (darkofficehumour.wordpress.com) have compared his writing to that of Scott Adams (creator of Dilbert, the cartoon strip) and Joseph Heller (author of Catch22), both masterpieces of satire. His Blog has also received recognition through the ÒVersatile BloggerÓ award several times in its brief history.
