5 Atwood, Margaret Moral Disorder and Other Stories
New York Nan A. Talese 2006 0385503849 / 9780385503846 Stated First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Unmarked. ; Book Description; Dust Jacket is intact and covered in protective (Demco) plastic film and paper. Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square and with minor wear. Ships Safe and Fast. Margaret Atwood is acknowledged as one of the foremost writers of our time. In Moral Disorder, she has created a series of interconnected stories that trace the course of a life and also the lives intertwined with itthose of parents, of siblings, of children, of friends, of enemies, of teachers, and even of animals. As in a photograph album, time is measured in sharp, clearly observed moments. The 30s, the 40s, the 50s, the 60s, the 70s, the 80s, the 90s, and the present all are here. The settings vary: large cities, suburbs, farms, northern forests. The Bad News is set in the present, as a couple no longer young situate themselves in a larger world no longer safe. The narrative then switches time as the central character moves through childhood and adolescence in The Art of Cooking and Serving,  The Headless Horseman,  and My Last Duchess.  We follow her into young adulthood in The Other Place and then through a complex relationship, traced in four of the stories: Monopoly,  Moral Disorder,  White Horse,  and The Entities.  The last two stories, "The Labrador Fiasco" and "The Boys at the Lab," deal with the heartbreaking old age of parents but circle back again to childhood, to complete the cycle. By turns funny, lyrical, incisive, tragic, earthy, shocking, and deeply personal, Moral Disorder displays Atwoods celebrated storytelling gifts and unmistakable style to their best advantage. As the New York Times has said: "The reader has the sense that Atwood has complete access to her people's emotional histories, complete understanding of their hearts and imaginations.; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 240 pages

10 Botha, Ted The Girl with the Crooked Nose: A Tale of Murder, Obsession, and Forensic Artistry
US Random House 2008 140006533X / 9781400065332 First Edition Hardcover Very Good 
Book Description Release Date: 2008 In The Girl with the Crooked Nose, Ted Botha tells the absorbing story of Frank Bender, a gifted, self-taught artist who can bring back the dead and the vanished through a unique, macabre sculpting talent. Bender has been the key to solving at least nine murders and tracking down numerous criminals. Then he is called upon to tackle the most challenging and bizarre case of his career. Someone is killing the young women of Juarez. Since 1993, the decomposing bodies of as many as four hundred victims, known as feminicidios, have been found in the desert surrounding this gritty Mexican border town. In 2003, prodded by local political pressure and international attention, the Mexican authorities turn to the United States to help solve these horrific crimes. The man they turn to is Bender. Through breathtakingly realistic sculptures, Bender reconstructs the faces of unknown murder victims or fugitives whose appearances are certain to have changed over years on the run. The busts are based in part on the painstaking application of forensic science to fleshless human skulls and in part on deep intuition, an uncanny ability to discern not only a missing face but also the personality behind it. Arriving in Mexico, Bender works in secrecy, in a culture of corruption and casual violence where the line between criminals and law enforcement is blurry, braving anonymous threats and sinister coincidences to give eight skulls back their faces and, hopefully, their histories. Drawn to one skull in particular-"The Girl With the Crooked Nose"-Bender gradually comes to suspect that perhaps he is not meant to succeed, and that the true solution to the mystery of the feminicidios is far more terrible than anyone has dared to imagine. Ted Botha brilliantly weaves Bender's story-the cases he has solved, the intricacies of his art, the colorful characters he encounters, and the personal cost of his strange obsession-with the chilling story of the Juarez investigation. With a conclusion as shocking as its story is gripping, The Girl with the Crooked Nose will haunt readers long after the last page is turned. "...[a] crackling account of a quirky, maverick forensics artist, Frank Bender, and his largely successful efforts in facial reconstruction of murder victims.... extraordinary is Botha's writing, with his unerring depiction of Bender's painstaking work and the eventual unraveling of the brutal crimes it solves.... the tales in this book accurately capture the dark motives and complexities of senseless murder, and even the most savvy true-crime reader will not be able to resist the author's insightful storytelling."--Publishers Weekly Editorial Reviews From Publishers Weekly There is a bewildering, frustrating quality in Botha's crackling account of a quirky, maverick forensics artist, Frank Bender, and his largely successful efforts in facial reconstruction of murder victims. The steady, no-nonsense approach of the author (Mongo: Adventures in Trash) is marred by the herky-jerky sequences of the narrative as he switches from Bender's hit-and-miss past triumphs to a monumental murder case south of the border in the sordid Mexican area near Ciudad Juárez, where about 400 women have been raped, tortured and killed. National and international recognition of Bender's uncanny skill grows, but the psychological toll wears on his home life and his interaction with authorities. What is extraordinary is Botha's writing, with his unerring depiction of Bender's painstaking work and the eventual unraveling of the brutal crimes it solves. Although Bender is not successful with every case, including the epic Mexican serial killings, the tales in this book accurately capture the dark motives and complexities of senseless murder, and even the most savvy true-crime reader will not be able to resist the author's insightful storytelling. 16 pages of photos. (May 13) Copyright ® Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. From Booklist Into the burgeoning true-crime subgenre of forensic procedurals leaps Botha's account of artist Frank Bender, who uncannily reconstructs murder victims' faces from their decomposed and skeletal remains. So doing, he frequently provides police with very reliable information for pursuing at-large murderers. Botha writes with a sort of calculated manliness, even though he is given to such dramatics as slinging the occasional highly atmospheric description before naming, or even indicating the species of, the characters in a scene. Stylistic concerns aside, this action-packed overview of Bender's career centers on a spirited rendition of how Bender reconstructed the facial features of several victims of an ongoing murder spree in Juarez, Mexico, in the early 1990s. Replete with tales of corrupt local authorities and various bureaucracies, plus an adroit description of Bender's mounting suspicion that something unidentified is keeping him from solving the Juarez case, Botha's work relays Bender's surprising conclusions about the case and imparts more information about reconstructing the faces of the dead than most readers will expect. --Mike Tribby; 9.4 x 6.1 x 1.3 inches

20 Causey, D. J. Mining Claim Activity on Federal Land for the Period 1976-2003
Washington 25 D. C. U. S. Geological Survey 2005 CD-ROM Fine 
In sealed plastic wrapper. ; Plastic hard CD case. Previous reports on mining claim records provided information and statistics (number of claims) using data from the U. S. Bureau of Land Management's (BLM) Mining Claim Recordation System. Since that time, BLM converted their mining claim data to the Legacy Repost 2000 system (LR2000). This report describes a process to extract similar statistical data about mining claims from LR2000 data using different software and procedures than were used in the earlier work. A major difference between this process and the previous work is that every section that has a mining claim record is assigned a value. This is done by proportioning a claim between each section in which it is recorded. Also, the mining claim data in this report includes all BLM records, not just the western states. LR2000 mining claim database tables for the United States were provided by BLM in text format and imported into a Microsoft® Access2000 database in January, 2004. Data from two tables in the BLM LR2000 database were summarized through a series of database queries to determine a number that represents active mining claims in each Public Land Survey (PLS) section for each of the years from 1976 to 2002. For most of the area, spatial databases are also provided. The spatial databases are only configured to work with the statistics provided in the non-spatial data files. They are suitable for geographic information system (GIS) -based regional assessments at a scale of 1: 100,000 or smaller (for example, 1: 250,000). ; USGS Digital Data Series DSS-124; 5.60 X 4.80 X 0.40 inches
