Early issues have considered whether it is possible to live an honorable social life on Facebook, what Thorstein Veblen would say about Goldman Sachs, how Stendhal might help us with dating, and why today’s conservatives ought to read Marx. Each issue also contains a symposium consisting of several shorter pieces relating to a topic chosen by the editors—for instance, film, conservatism, or contemporary music.

Issue 4 of The Pointwill include essays on the morality of marriage and the significance of J.M. Coetzee’s late novels, as well as a reflection on the attraction between white boys and hip hop. The symposium on sports features pieces on the steroid era in baseball, nationalism at the World Cup and the nature of athletic competition.

In the fast-paced Prairie Rose, impulsive nineteen-year-old Rosie Mills takes a job caring for the young son of widowed homesteader Seth Hunter in order to escape the orphanage in which she was raised. Rosie's naive view of love and her understanding of what it means to have a Father in heaven are quickly put to the test. Afraid of being wounded again, Seth struggles to freely open his heart—to his hurting son, to a woman's love, and to a Father who will not abandon him. Together Rosie and Seth must face the harsh uncertainties of prairie life—and the one man who threatens to destroy their happiness. 

Praire Rose launches a series sure to satisfy readers who expect solid biblical values in a wholesome, exhilarating romance.

Alaska State Trooper Liam Campbell, demoted and reassigned to the remote bush town of Newenham, literally steps off the plane into a murder scene. Dealing with death is never simple, but when the woman leaning over the body proves to be Liam's old flame, it’s evident that his new job is about to become much more complicated.

From Newenham’s cast of eccentric—and sometimes hair-trigger—residents, to the intricate ballet of fishing boats rushing against time to catch their limit, Stabenow captures the contagious spirit of melancholy madness that pervades America’s last frontier. Of course, small town tensions tend to simmer just beneath the surface, and murder, once done, has a tendency to happen again...

New York Times bestseller and Edgar Award winner Dana Stabenow, a life-long Alaskan, is best known for her Kate Shugak mysteries. She has created a compelling new protagonist in State Trooper Liam Campbell.

Drawn from Wendy Kelly’s real-life journey with a rescue dog and her experiences as an animal behaviorist, this handbook identifies basic pet attitudes that can help their human companions lead fulfilled and meaningful lives. By illustrating how to be here now and be full of intention to travel light and be one in love, this guide reveals how humans have more to learn from their pets than humans can ever teach them. Pets are some of the best teachers of how to be in the moment and open to endless possibilities, to be true to thoughts and feelings, to travel without excess baggage, and to embrace the universal love that connects everyone in the “pack.” In addition, Wendy shares her very personal experience with her dog Buji, a bull terrier she rescued from euthanization who ultimately twice saved Wendy from what would have been a deadly cancer.
