Who Goes There? The Story of a Spy in the Civil War by B.K. Benson is an autobiographical work about life during the American Civil War as told by a Union soldier whose personal ties to both sides tested his loyalty when he was recruited to gather information on the Confederacy.

The Civil War Told by Those Who Lived It: Volumes I, II, and III edited by Brooks Simpson gathers letters, diaries, speeches, articles, poems, and memoirs by more than 90 participants to create a unique firsthand narrative of this great historical crisis, beginning on the eve of Lincoln’s election and ending with the final year of the conflict.

These four books were given by Betty and Kathy Jan Karstetter in memory of Archie Skeen.

Hidden Order by Brad Thor involves covert counter-terrorism operative Scot Harvath in a search for five candidates who go missing just as they come under consideration to head a secret government agency that operates without any accountability to the American people.

The Mountain Men by Bill Harris recreates the lives of the extraordinarily rugged and resourceful trappers, explorers, and hunters who carved out a path that opened the West and mapped the wagon trails from the Missouri River to the Rocky Mountains in the surprisingly short period from the early 1800s to the final Rendezvous at Horse Creek in 1840.

Eye of God: A Sigma Force Novel by James Rollins blends historical mystery with scientific exploration as Commander Gray Pierce joins a pair of Vatican researchers to uncover a truth tied to the fall of the Roman Empire, the roots of Christianity, and a prediction of an apocalyptic end to civilization.

Quest for Flight: John J. Montgomery and the Dawn of Aviation in the West by Craig Harwood revises the chronology of aviation in America decades prior to 1903 in the story of a California scientist who succeeded in flying gliders twenty years before the Wright brothers introduced powered flight at Kitty Hawk.

Gone With the Win: A Bed and Breakfast Mystery by Mary Daheim features innkeeper and reluctant sleuth Judith McMonigle Flynn and her husband Joe who become involved in a cold case in pursuit of a long-ago killer.
