For farmers and ranchers, fencing is as much about keeping predators out as it is about keeping livestock in. Significantly less expensive than barbed wire, electric fencing is the preferred way to do both tasks efficiently, but there's never been a book dedicated to the topic. And while it's not difficult to install and maintain the electric fencing, people often get the details wrong and then wonder why the fence isn't doing its job. Ann Larkin Hansen brings decades of experience to the art of using electric fencing. In this Storey Basics guide, she explains in everyday terms how it works, the various systems one can build, how to install and maintain the three kinds of electric fence (permanent, combination permanent non-electric and electric wire offset and temporary or portable electric) and what not to do with electric fencing. For livestock raisers, Hansen also covers the basics of rotational grazing.

"It's been a long time since I read a novel with such charm, generosity, humor, daring, and brilliance. It is just splendid." -- Bobbie Ann Mason
Thirty years after her stepbrother's unsolved murder, a reluctant Mary Byrd Thornton is forced by a detective's call to return to her family and again confront the crime's irremovable stain.
This stunning debut--from the cofounder of the legendary Square Books in Oxford, Mississippi--is a work of fiction, but the murder is based on the still-unsolved case of Lisa Howorth's stepbrother, a front page story in the Washington Post. And yet this is not a crime novel; it is an honest and luminous story of a particular time and place in the South, where even calamitous weather can be a character, everyone has a story, and all are inextricably entwined.
With a flamboyant cast, splendid dark humor, a potent sense of history, and a shocking true story at its heart, Flying Shoes is a rich and candid novel from a fresh new voice about family and memory and one woman's flight from a wounded past.
