Sweeping American Civil War drama based on the novel by Charles Frazier, directed by Anthony Minghella (The English Patient, The Talented Mr Ripley). Jude Law stars as Inman, a wounded Confederate soldier who is slowly making the perilous journey back to his home town of Cold Mountain in North Carolina, meeting a string of colourful characters along the way (played by actors including Philip Seymour Hoffman, Natalie Portman, Ray Winstone and Kathy Baker). At home waits Ada Monroe (Nicole Kidman), the pre-war sweetheart to whom he has vowed to return. In his absence Ada, the shy and reserved daughter of a preacher (Donald Sutherland), has befriended the feisty Ruby (Renée Zellweger), a tough-talking young woman who can work the land as well as any man. Ruby supports Ada both emotionally and practically as she waits for Inman's return - but as the war drags on and her letters go unanswered, Ada finds it increasingly difficult to keep the faith.

Though The Ghost Who Walks is Karen Elson's debut album, she isn't exactly a musical newcomer -- even if it might seem that way to those who know her as the model who married the White Stripes' Jack White. With previous projects ranging from the political cabaret of the Citizens' Band to the garage punk tantrums of Mildred and the Mice, Elson has her share of musical experience, but with such wide-ranging credits, it was anyone's guess what her own album would sound like. On The Ghost Who Walks, she runs the gamut from chilly murder ballads with British roots to Nashville twang, giving old-timey folk and modern rock the same intensity and singing of shipwrecks, stolen lovers, and storms with a beguiling mournfulness. Her voice's dark dreaminess carries the album, especially on more stripped-down tracks like the acoustic late-summer lament "Lunasa" and the ghostly shanty "Stolen Roses." Though the album is Elson's showcase, White produced it, and his touches are everywhere. "The Truth Is in the Dirt"'s earthy, apocalyptic feel gets added heft from sudden dynamic shifts and spooky organ and pedal steel that recall his work with the Dead Weather -- and indeed, White's bandmate Jack Lawrence plays here as well, underscoring the repertory company vibe of projects White is associated with. His fondness for theatricality and Elson's cabaret roots combine on "100 Years from Now," a lovelorn song that starts off sounding like it's being played on a wax cylinder, then blooms into a sweeping waltz complete with theremin, and on the dust bowl ballad "Mouths to Feed." Yet many of the album's most striking moments are decidedly modern-sounding: "The Ghost Who Walks" -- which gets its name from one of the epithets Elson was called in school because she was so pale -- updates the murder ballad tradition with electric pianos that rain unearthly beauty onto the song; "A Thief at My Door" ebbs and flows, dipping into darker rock territory; and "The Last Laugh"'s gentle country-pop sounds like it could have come off a long-lost Dolly Parton album from the `70s. While The Ghost Who Walks occasionally feels a little long and scattered, it's still a beautifully made album that earns Elson a place among moody songstresses such as Neko Case, Amanda Palmer, Hope Sandoval, and Paula Frazer.

Ten Years in Texas is a riveting, page turning historical novel based on the 10 years Texas struggled to rip a Republic from the iron fist of the Mexican dictator, Santa Anna. You will follow the seeds of independence and the formation of an area known as Texas. Author Jack White places you alongside General Sam Houston as the Lone Star of Texas is lowered for the last time and the stars and stripes rose. Some characters are fictional to help enhance the story of the struggle and hardship facing those who were brave enough to forge a nation out of the wilderness. The real heroes are accurate to the smallest details with one exception; the author extends the life of Baron de Bastrop, because without him there would be no Texas. With skillful use of words the author makes you freeze in an ice storm or swelter under the blazing Texas sun. He uses his vast knowledge of Texas geography allowing the reader to visualize the terrain as the battles unfold. Ten Years in Texas is a must for anyone interested in the cesarean birth of Texas and the ten years of blood, sweat and tears that followed.
"Abraham Lincoln: His Dark Side Exposed" is written like a page turning mystery novel but the entire book is true. You will learn disturbing and murky secrets about the man responsible for over a million deaths and total destruction of the once proud antebellum South. Discover the truth that the Civil War was not fought to free the African slaves, rather it was a battle for control of the House of Representatives. Even though almost 16,000 books have been published on President Lincoln none have dared pull back the covers to reveal his dark side.
