PRINTER'S DEVIL TO PUBLISHER
Adolph S. Ochs of The New York Times
Doris Faber -- Introduction by Arthur Ochs Sulzberger
Published as part of the Times's centennial celebration, and written by a former Times reporter, this is the dramatic and little-known story of how a struggling young man from Tennessee bought the nearly bankrupt New York Times in 1896 and transformed it into the best and most powerful newspaper in the world. A lively, readable biography of a barefoot boy who rose through the ranks of the newspaper business--from printer's errand boy, to printer, to publisher of a small Tennesee daily, to a position of enormous power and influence, competing with the likes of Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst, and consorting with presidents. With an introduction by Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, current chairman of The New York Times and grandson of Adolph Ochs.

A VISIBLE HERITAGE
Columbia County, New York: A History in Art and Architecture
Ruth Piwonka and Roderic H. Blackburn 157 photographs grace this pioneer work which traces over 300 years of artists' and architects' impressions and renderings of one of the earliest counties to be settled in New York. World famous sites such as Hudson River School painter Frederic Church's art-filled Moorish mansion, Olana, and the Livingston family's stately mansion, Clermont, as well as many normally- inaccessible paintings from private collections, and memorable historic structures sheltered from public view. Here and there, in places that careful people have kept intact, a remarkable collection of historic houses, mills, and public places has managed to survive forgetfulness and progress.--River Valley Chronicle A delight, a time machine, an instruction.--Mary Black

THE UNBROKEN THREAD
A History of Quiltmaking in the Catskills
Steve Hoare Introduction by Carter Houck The first illustrated history of the art of quiltmaking as practiced from colonial times to the present in the five counties of the Catskills.
"In many ways this is not just a book about quilters in the Catskill Mountains, it is about people, and women especially, who make up America."
In this volume Steven Hoare has compiled a wonderful history of the 20th-century women of a little-known region of America. Each woman comes alive in her own voice, complete with her own view of life as well as of quilting. --From the Introduction by Carter Houck, longtime quilt magazine editor and author of numerous books on quiltmaking.
