We are pleased and proud to present the spring 2007 Lyons Press list.
There is something for everyone in our new catalog, which represents our rein- vigorated core categories: History and Military, Current Affairs, Biography, Fishing and Hunting, Equestrian, Sports, Nature, Reference, Cooking, and Pets.
In History and Current Affairs, we have some terrific books by authors new to Lyons, including Al Venter’s Allah’s Bomb, best-selling author Alan Axelrod’s Miracle at Belleau Wood, Lena Einhorn’s The Jesus Mystery, and Michael Veron’s Shell Game. In Biography, we have John Hemingway’s fascinating Strange Tribe.
We also have new or revised titles by many of our long-time authors and branding partners, including Orvis, L.L. Bean, Field & Stream, Lefty Kreh, Dave Whitlock, and Tom Rosenbauer. With Orvis, in addition to some top- notch fishing books, we are launching books in two new areas, The Orvis Book of Cabins and The Orvis Book of Dogs.
In Fishing, we are pleased to present the great Ernest Schwiebert’s final books, the two-volume, full-color set, Nymphs. We also have a new series of regional guides, including Fishing Virginia and Fishing Maine. In the Equestrian area, the new and revised edition of Bill Dorrance and Leslie Desmond’s classic, True Horsemanship Through Feel, as well as Steven Price and Jessie Shiers’s The Lyons Press Horseman’s Dictionary, round out our offerings.
In Sports, we’re happy to include The Historical Football Abstract by Sean Lahman—which may well change the way people think about football—along with Josh Pahigian’s new book, The Ultimate Minor League Baseball Road Trip.
In Pets, we have Your Adopted Dog by Shelley Frost and Katerina Lorenzatos Makris; Joyce Darrell’s Extraordinary Dogs, a heart-warming book about very special dogs; and veterinarian Michael W. Fox’s new books, Dog Body, Dog Mind and Cat Body, Cat Mind.
Following up on a strong fall ’06 list, the spring ’07 Lyons list is a terrific one with the addition of these wonderful new books in our core categories. There is indeed something for everyone. Enjoy!
