READING: A sensational summer thriller from bestselling author James Patterson. As Peter Carlyle, a smooth-talking, super-successful lawyer, waved his family off on a sailing holiday, all they had in mind was lying back and relaxing. But as a violent storm broke out, an explosion caused the boat to vanish without a trace and the family were lost, presumed dead. Until now. When a message in a bottle is washed up on a shore, it becomes apparent that there must have been at least one survivor. But all is not as it seems. The race is on to rescue the Carlyles, but does everyone looking for the family really want to find them alive? Survival may be the least of their concerns. In fact, being found may be the last thing they should be hoping for.

READING: "The maritime history of Texas is a critical but overlooked topic. This book is a significant contribution, a very nice new synthesis. It will be very useful for a general audience." —J. Barto Arnold III, State Marine Archeologist, Texas Historical Commission The Gulf Coast has been a principal place of entry into Texas ever since Alonso Alvarez de Pineda explored these shores in 1519. Yet, nearly five hundred years later, the maritime history of Texas remains largely untold. In this book, Richard V. Francaviglia offers a comprehensive overview of Texas' merchant and military marine history, drawn from his own extensive collection of maritime history materials, as well as from research in libraries and museums around the country. Based on recent discoveries in nautical archaeology, Francaviglia tells the stories of the Spanish flotilla that wrecked off Padre Island in 1554 and of La Salle's flagship Belle, which sank in 1687. He explores the role of the Texas Navy in the Texas Revolution of 1835-1836 and during the years of the Texas Republic and also describes the Civil War battles at Galveston and Sabine Pass. Finally, he recounts major developments of the nineteenth century, concluding with the disastrous Galveston Hurricane in 1900. More than one hundred illustrations, many never before published, complement the text.

READING: 19th Century Multi-Tasking & Global Commerce is a three-volume transcription of John M. Mayo & Co. business letter books (1848-1856) {archived at The Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA} including extensive research into sailing nomenclature, business practices and other terms, events and locations of historic interest. The 19th century merchant was challenged by what today would be considered slow communications, transportation, unstable banking and fi nicky insurance institutions and though we like to consider ourselves living in a complex and hectic business world, I am not sure we are that much different today. These business letters illustrate the real-world complexities faced by the shipping merchants and how creative, thrifty and resourceful these businessman were. Over thirty ships were owned or partially owned by John M. Mayo & Company during these years. In less than 9 business years this vertically integrated shipping business communicated with over a hundred vessel masters and almost a thousand business contacts. All this information was derived from 1300 business letters, laboriously transcribed from cursive, and many times with terminology obsolete to current business vernacular.
