12 Bones Smokehouse: A Mountain BBQ Cookbook

When 12 Bones Smokehouse opened in Asheville, North Carolina, many doubted that it would succeed. From a squat building in a flood plain, the owners were serving up creative barbecue that wasn’t 100-percent true to any single region. Yet a decade later, 12 Bones is a local institution that rivals the Biltmore Estate in popularity. (In fact, it’s 12 Bones alone that has been on President Obama’s itinerary all three times he’s passed through Asheville.)

The 12 Bones Smokehouse book is true to the spirit of the place. Everything is made from scratch–and cornbread is not optional. Inside you’ll find all the classics: from the famous ribs to smoky pork, turkey, and chicken. And just like the restaurant, the bookis uniquely vegetarian-friendly by barbecue standards.

Reluctant Genius: Alexander Graham Bell and the Passion for Invention

The popular image of Alexander Graham Bell is that of an elderly American patriarch, memorable only for his paunch, his Santa Claus beard, and the invention of the telephone. In this magisterial reassessment based on thorough new research, acclaimed biographer Charlotte Gray reveals Bell’s wide-ranging passion for invention and delves into the private life that supported his genius. The child of a speech therapist and a deaf mother, and possessed of superbly acute hearing, Bell developed an early interest in sound. His understanding of how sound waves might relate to electrical waves enabled him to invent the ?talking telegraph” before his rivals, even as he undertook a tempestuous courtship of the woman who would become his wife and mainstay.
