This book, A History of God, is an earlier work from 1993 that made a splash at the time and continues to be a major work in the field.

From the long running PBS series "The Woodwrights Shop's" Roy Underhill, comes this fantastic novel. he story follows Calvin Cobb, a low level government employee in the 1930's who inadvertently becomes America's first Radio Woodworker. With the help of his four WWI female veterans he goes on a wild adventure on his way to success. Not just for woodworkers this book is a great read, both fun and entertaining!- Jason Stamper, Circulation Services Manager

Calvin Cobb: Radio Woodworker! – by Roy Underhill
Roy Underhill’s first novel is complete and off to the printer. It is an enormous honor to publish this labor of love, which Roy has been working on for years. (I really don’t want to ask how many hours he has in this manuscript.) In true form, as I was preparing the digital files for…
Note: All prices include free domestic shipping. Roy Underhill of PBS’s “The Woodwright’s Shop” has written what could be the world’s first-ever woodworking novel: “Calvin Cobb: Radio Woodworker!” It’s a screwball comedy set in 1937 about a woodworker who heads the U.S. government’s agricultural “Broadcast Research” division. Along with his staff of four women (all severely injured WWI volunteers), Calvin studies “broadcast seed, nutrient and amendment distribution technology and practice” – that is, what happens when the poop actually hits the fan. But the four women are more interested in developing the world’s first supercomputer (using abandoned punch-card machines), and Calvin is more interested in woodworking…and in one particular woman: Kathryn Dale Harper, host of the radio program “Homemaker Chats.” How best to woo her? Why, a radio show: “Grandpa Sam’s Woodshop of the Air!” It’s an almost-overnight sensation (for measured drawings, write to “Grandpa Sam’s” and be sure to include a 3-cent stamp to cover the cost of duplication). But – as Calvin discovers – success breeds jealousy… a dangerous thing when one’s enemy has friends in high places. Can Calvin and his friends save the world through woodworking, one listener at a time? Perhaps – but first, they’ll have to save themselves from Nazis, the clutches of the FBI, bureaucracy and wooden legs that break at inopportune times. Like all Lost Art Press books, “Calvin Cobb” is produced entirely in the United States. The 6" x 9" hardbound book is casebound with sewn signatures. It is wrapped in a beautiful full-color dust jacket designed by Canadian artist Jode Thompson. And yes! It includes measured drawings for four projects that are essential to the plot of the book! A Note on the Digital Download Edition "Calvin Cobb" is offered in digital format with no DRM (digital rights management). If you purchase the digital download you will receive a .zip file containing the following files: three versions of the book (in ePub, mobi and pdf formats) and two pdfs of the graphical elements of the novel – the measured drawings and a WPA visual guide to Washington, D.C. Because we serve these files without DRM, you will likely need to copy the files to your device manually. If you need a tutorial on adding our books to your iPad, click here.

They return to the MaddAddamite cob house, newly fortified against man and giant pigoon alike. Accompanying them are the Crakers, the gentle, quasi-human species engineered by the brilliant but deceased Crake. Their reluctant prophet, Snowman-the-Jimmy, is recovering from a debilitating fever, so it’s left to Toby to preach the Craker theology, with Crake as Creator. She must also deal with cultural misunderstandings, terrible coffee, and her jealousy over her lover, Zeb. Zeb has been searching for Adam One, founder of the God’s Gardeners, the pacifist green religion from which Zeb broke years ago to lead the MaddAddamites in active resistance against the destructive CorpSeCorps. But now, under threat of a Painballer attack, the MaddAddamites must fight back with the aid of their newfound allies, some of whom have four trotters. At the center of MaddAddam is the story of Zeb’s dark and twisted past, which contains a lost brother, a hidden murder, a bear, and a bizarre act of revenge. Combining adventure, humor, romance, superb storytelling, and an imagination at once dazzlingly inventive and grounded in a recognizable world, MaddAddam is vintage Margaret Atwood—a moving and dramatic conclusion to her internationally celebrated dystopian trilogy.From the Hardcover edition.

The Map Thief
The Map Thief - Austin Public Library
The Map Thief The Gripping Story of An Esteemed Rare-map Dealer Who Made Millions Stealing Priceless Maps (Book) : Blanding, Michael : "The story of an infamous crime, a revered map dealer with an unsavory secret, and the ruthless subculture that consumed him. Maps have long exerted a special fascination on viewers--both as beautiful works of art and as practical tools to navigate the world. But to those who collect them, the map trade can be a cutthroat business, inhabited by quirky and sometimes disreputable characters in search of a finite number of extremely rare objects. Once considered a respectable antiquarian map dealer, E. Forbes Smiley spent years doubling as a map thief--until he was finally arrested slipping maps out of books in the Yale University library. The Map Thief delves into the untold history of this fascinating high-stakes criminal and the inside story of the industry that consumed him. Acclaimed reporter Michael Blanding has interviewed all the key players in this stranger-than-fiction story, and shares the fascinating histories of maps that charted the New World, and how they went from being practical instruments to quirky heirlooms to highly coveted objects. Though pieces of the map theft story have been written before, Blanding is the first reporter to explore the story in full-and had the rare privilege of having access to Smiley himself after he'd gone silent in the wake of his crimes. Moreover, although Smiley swears he has admitted to all of the maps he stole, libraries claim he stole hundreds more--and offer intriguing clues to prove it. Now, through a series of exclusive interviews with Smiley and other key individuals, Blanding teases out an astonishing tale of destruction and redemption. The Map Thief interweaves Smiley's escapades with the stories of the explorers and mapmakers he knew better than anyone. Tracking a series of thefts as brazen as the art heists in Provenance and a subculture as obsessive as the oenophiles in The Billionaire's Vinegar, Blanding has pieced together an unforgettable story of high-stakes crime.

We've all seen those roadside historical markers that tout George Stoneman's Civil War campaign in North Carolina. This concise book, written by an Appalachian history professor, describes the last days of the war between the states as they played out in central and western North Carolina.
