Dakota: A Spiritual Geography is $1.99 today at Amazon, regularly $13.99.

From Goodreads:

Quote:
A beautiful meditation on life in the Great Plains from award-winning author and poet Kathleen Norris.

Kathleen Norris invites readers to experience rich moments of prayer and presence in Dakota, a timeless tribute to a place in the American landscape that is at once desolate and sublime, harsh and forgiving, steeped in history and myth. In thoughtful, discerning prose, she explores how we come to inhabit the world we see, and how that world also inhabits us. Her voice is a steady assurance that we can, and do, chart our spiritual geography wherever we go.
I read this shortly after it came out, admittedly 25 years ago (!), and liked it a lot. It's become something of a classic of its genre, spiritual/religious memoir.

John Ashdown-Hill wrote a pretty good book (IMO) about the last few months of Richard III's reign, the finding of Richard's burial site, and the DNA work that established his identity. He's also written a number of other biographies of people from this period, mostly normally priced in the US $10 range. His new book, Cecily Neville: Mother of Richard III, came out earlier this year, and has been (per eReaderIQ) sitting at $29.95 since publication. It has now dropped to $5.25 at Kindle US - not a great price, but not too horrible either for a newish non-fiction book, and certainly better than $29.95. It's still over $20 at Kobo US.

Spoiler:
Quote:
Wife to Richard, Duke of York, mother to Edward IV and Richard III, and aunt to the famous ‘Kingmaker’, Richard, Earl of Warwick, Cecily Neville was a key player on the political stage of fifteenth-century Britain England.

Mythologically rumoured to have been known as ‘the Rose of Raby’ because of her beauty and her birth at Raby Castle, and as ‘Proud Cis’ because of her vanity and fiery temper, Cecily’s personality and temperament have actually been highly speculated upon. In fact, much of her life is shrouded in mystery. Putting aside Cecily’s role as mother and wife, who was she really?

Matriarch of the York dynasty, she navigated through a tumultuous period and lived to see the birth of the future Henry VIII. From seeing the house of York defeat their Lancastrian cousins; to witnessing the defeat of her own son, Richard III, at the battle of Bosworth, Cecily then saw one of her granddaughters become Henry VII’s queen consort.

Her story is full of controversy and the few published books on her life are full of guess-work. In this highly original history, Dr John Ashdown-Hill seeks to dispel the myths surrounding Cecily using previously unexamined contemporary sources.

I'm a lurker now.

But sometimes I'm going to run across a deal too good not to share. This is one of those deals.

The University of Illinois Press currently has all of their ebooks on sale for _$4.99_ each. Read about it at https://t.e2ma.net/message/eya5v/2syejad. You'll find three that actually are _free_, if you'll look around.

Thank you so much for posting that, issybird. It's also on sale at amazon.ca for $CDN 1.99 - I think it may be a monthly deal:

I just read it in one sitting. It's one of the best things I've read this year. Note, for anyone who may be a bit put off by the suggestion of religion, it's also a great book on modern life on the high plains.
