    Creating Self in an Infectious World

    Lousy Sex

    In Lousy Sex, Gerald Callahan explores the science of self, illustrating the immune systems role in forming individual identity. Blending the scientific essay with deeply personal narratives, these poi-gnant and enlightening stories use microbiology and immunology to explore a new way to answer the question, who am I?

    Self has many definitions. Science has demonstrated that 90 percent of the cells in our bodies are bacteriawe are in many respects more non-self than self. In Lousy Sex, Callahan considers this microbio-neuro perspective on human identity together with the soulful, social perception of self, drawing on both art and science to fully illuminate this relationship.

    In his stories about where we came from and who we are, Callahan uses autobiographical episodes to illustrate his scientific points. Through stories about the sex lives of wood lice, the bio-logical advantages of eating dirt, the question of immortality, the relationship between syphilis and the musical genius of Beethoven, and more, this book creates another way, a chimeric way, of seeing ourselves. The general reader with an interest in science will find Lousy Sex fascinating.

    Yellowstone Wildlife

    Yellowstone Wildlife is a natural history of the wild-life species that call Yellowstone National Park and the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem their home. Illustrated with stunning images by renowned wildlife photographer Thomas Mangelsen, Yellowstone Wildlife describes the lives of species in the park, exploring their habitats from the Grand Tetons to Jackson Hole.

    From charismatic megafauna like elk, bison, wolves, bighorn sheep, and grizzly bears, to smaller mammals like bats, pikas, beavers, and otters, to some of the 279 species of birds, Johnsgard describes the behavior of animals throughout the seasons, with sections on what summer and autumn mean to the wildlife of the park, especially with the intrusion of millions of tourists each year. Enhanced by Mangelsens wildlife photography, Yellowstone Wildlife reveals the beauty and complex-ity of these species intertwined lives and that of Yellowstones greater ecosystem.

    In the entire history of the American West there were no more fascinating characters than the Bloody Espinosas of Colorado Territory. This fast-paced, amazingly objective, intriguing, and highly recom-mended study of the Espinosas, as well as those who hunted them, will keep you turning the pages.

    Novelist-turned-historian Charles F. Price is a full-time writer living in North Carolina and has previously pub-lished five novels. Season of Terror is his first nonfiction book.

    Season of Terror

    Season of Terror is the first book-length treatment of the little-known true story of the Espinosasserial murderers with a mission to kill every Anglo in Civil Warera Colorado Territoryand the men who brought them down.

    For eight months during the spring and fall of 1863, brothers Felipe Nerio and Jos Vivin Espinosa and their young nephew, Jos Vincente, New Mexicoborn Hispanos, killed and muti-lated an estimated thirty-two victims before their rampage came to a bloody end. Their motives were obscure, although they were members of the Penitentes, a lay Catholic brotherhood devoted to self-torture in emulation of the sufferings of Christ, and some suppose they believed them-selves inspired by the Virgin Mary to commit their slaughters.

    Until now, the story of their rampage has been recounted as lurid melodrama or ignored by academic historians. Featuring a fascinating array of frontier characters, Season of Terror exposes this neglected truth about Colorados past and exam-ines the ethnic, religious, political, military, and moral complexity of the controversy that began as a regional incident but eventually demanded the attention of President Lincoln.

    The best work on the Montana vigilantes . . . Its care-ful, informative, judicial approach radiates a strong authority that will be recognized by academics and popular readers alike.

    Mark C. Dillon is an associate jus-tice in the Appellate Division of the New York State Supreme Court and

    has a special interest in the history of law-making, law enforcement, and

    unauthorized justice in the Montana Territory of the 1860s.

    The Montana Vigilantes18631870

    Historians and novelists alike have described the vigilantism that took root in the gold-mining com-munities of Montana in the mid-1860s, but Mark C. Dillon is the first to examine the subject through the prism of American legal history, considering the state of criminal justice and law enforcement in the western territories and also trial procedures, guber-natorial politics, legislative enactments, and consti-tutional rights.

    Using newspaper articles, diaries, letters, biographies, invoices, and books that speak to the compelling history of Montanas vigilantism in the 1860s, Dillon examines the conduct of the vigilantes in the context of the due process norms of the time. He implicates the influence of lawyers and judges who, like their non-lawyer counterparts, shaped history during the rush to earn fortunes in gold.

    Dillons perspective as a state Supreme Court justice and legal historian uniquely illuminates the intersection of territorial politics, constitutional issues, corrupt law enforcement, and the basic need of citizenry for social order. This readable and well-directed analysis of the social and legal context that contributed to the rise of Montana vigilante groups will be of interest to scholars and general readers interested in Western history, law, and criminal justice for years to come.
