In Defense Distributed, Cody Wilson’s employees worked against all odds to defend liberty and the right to access arms through the production of 3D printed firearms. Now, Wilson crafts a unique and critical guide through the digital revolution and follows a group of digital radicals as they navigate political subterfuge—deflecting interference from the State Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives—to create a technological miracle, against all odds.
Harkening to both Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance and The Anarchist Cookbook, Come and Take It combines elements of a modern-day thriller with a fascinating philosophical treatise, and Wilson paints a scathing and timely portrait of an ideologically polarized America and his own struggle in the fight for liberty.
Single mom Skye Mitchell has sunk her last dime into a dream, owning the venerable, if run-down LakeView Hotel in the Berkshire Hills. It’s here where she believes she’ll give her fourteen-year-old daughter Cody a better life. But being an innkeeper is more challenging than she imagined, and Cody still manages to fall in with the wrong crowd. In addition, Cody is keeping an earth-shattering secret that she’s terrified to reveal. The once loving, open girl has now become completely withdrawn, and Skye is both desperate and helpless to reach her.
When Adam March and his pit bull Chance check into the hotel, it becomes the first of many visits. Here in these peaceful mountains he finds an unexpected relief from his recent bereavement. He and the beleaguered innkeeper form a tentative friendship. Adam knows the struggles of raising a difficult teenager and Skye understands loneliness.
And then there is Mingo, a street kid with a pit bull dog of his own. When Cody discovers an overdosed Mingo, Adam takes the boy’s dog not just for safekeeping, but to foster and then rehome. But the dog isn’t the only one who needs saving. A makeshift family begins to form as four lost people learn to trust and rely on each other, with the help of two good dogs.
Structural engineer Abra Wilson is the sexiest thing that architect Cody Johnson has ever seen in a hard hat. Working together on the resort he designed brings them far too close for comfort, and Abra has to fight to resist Cody’s many charms. But after they join forces—privately and professionally—the pair finds themselves caught in a web of deception that could destroy the entire project...and their lives.

Today, most remember “California Girl” Lillian Frances Smith (1871–1930) as Annie Oakley’s chief competitor in the small world of the Wild West shows’ female shooters. But the two women were quite different: Oakley’s conservative “prairie beauty” persona clashed with Smith’s tendency to wear flashy clothes and keep company with the cowboys and American Indians she performed with. This lively first biography chronicles the Wild West showbiz life that Smith led and explores the talents that made her a star.
Drawing on family records, press accounts, interviews, and numerous other sources, historian Julia Bricklin peels away the myths that enshroud Smith’s fifty-year career. Known as “The California Huntress” before she was ten years old, Smith was a professional sharpshooter by the time she reached her teens, shooting targets from the back of a galloping horse in Buffalo Bill Cody’s Wild West. Not only did Cody offer $10,000 to anyone who could beat her, but he gave her top billing, setting the stage for her rivalry with Annie Oakley.
Being the best female sharpshooter in the United States was not enough, however, to differentiate Lillian Smith from Oakley and a growing number of ladylike cowgirls. So Smith reinvented herself as “Princess Wenona,” a Sioux with a violent and romantic past. Performing with Cody and other showmen such as Pawnee Bill and the Miller brothers, Smith led a tumultuous private life, eventually taking up the shield of a forged Indian persona. The morals of the time encouraged public criticism of Smith’s lack of Victorian femininity, and the press’s tendency to play up her rivalry with Oakley eventually overshadowed Smith’s own legacy.
In the end, as author Julia Bricklin shows, Smith cared more about living her life on her own terms than about her public image. Unlike her competitors who shot to make a living, Lillian Smith lived to shoot.

On this Monday, November 10, 1980, Nathaniel plans to receive his $50.000 payment from Don Scavone. He also plans to produce his first video.
Nathaniel has called his property Happy Hollow Hunt Club. It is secured by an impenetrable electric fence. Two massive hog heads are placed prominently at the entrance. The previous owners of the property, the Calvin brothers, had four hogzillas penned next to the house. They fed the hogs garbage, wild and domestic animals, and sometimes careless hunters who had wandered onto Calvin land. Two of the hogzillas run wild inside the enclosure and protect the video barn against any intruders.
Twin River High School custodian and Vietnam veteran Gene Brooks closed down Nathaniel's first video venture in Twin River. With the help of Jeffery Turner, former Penn State champion swimmer, Gene led the Pennsylvania State Police to the luxurious cabins hidden in the mountains and released the girl hostages. Vowing vengeance, Don Scavone has send soldiers Bengy and Freddy to Twin River. Their job is to waste Gene Brooks, his son Conner Brooks, and Gene's wife Lucy. Then they are to rendezvous with Nathaniel, present him with the $50,000, and proceed to the Happy Hollow Hunt Club for the first video.

Born in the back of a covered wagon traveling west from Vermont, Annie Dawson dreams of someday seeing what’s on the eastern side of the great Mississippi. For now, she’ll have to be content living with her parents and younger brother in the Nebraska Territory at the Red Buttes Pony Express station run by her family.
That is, until her favorite pony starts going wild, and Annie’s friend—Pony Express rider Billy Cody—suspects that someone is poisoning her. But who’d want to hurt gentle Magpie? Indian tribes stirring up trouble? Or the Butterfield Mail, the Pony Express rival that seems to feel threatened by the ponies’ speed in delivering mail to California?
The night before Magpie is scheduled to be put down, Annie steals out to see if her half-Shoshone friend Redbird Wilson can cure Magpie’s mysterious ailment. But the pony just gets worse.
