Description : Explore the hyperlocal approach of acclaimed chef Norbert Niederkofler, from his home in South Tyrol in the Italian Alps to the world and back. Norbert Niederkofler has dedicated his life and work to South Tyrol's culture and cuisine. He translates the beauty and vivid character of the mountains into his dishes at St. Hubertus, the only Michelin 3-starred restaurant with completely regional cuisine.

In the first volume of this 2-book set, brilliant photographs reveal both unspoiled landscapes and the agricultural and architectural changes humans have made in the past millennia. Striking portraits of locals capture the people and producers Niederkofler works with. Breathtaking food photography conveys the stunning ingredients and creations that Niederkofler develops. The second volume includes 80 of Niederkofler's recipes, divided into the four seasons to reflect his ethos of sustainability. Taken together, Cook the Mountain showcases the unique terroir and cuisine of South Tyrol through the eyes of Niederkofler, who has embraced his home and given it a new culinary identity.

Description : On September 11, 1857, a group of Mormons aided by Paiute Indians brutally murdered some 120 men, women, and children traveling through a remote region of southwestern Utah. Within weeks, news of the atrocity spread across the United States. But it took until 1874—seventeen years later—before a grand jury finally issued indictments against nine of the perpetrators. Mountain Meadows Massacre chronicles the prolonged legal battle to gain justice for the victims. The editors of this two-volume collection of documents have combed public and private manuscript collections from across the United States to reconstruct the complex legal proceedings that occurred in the massacre’s aftermath. This exhaustively researched compilation covers a nearly forty-year history of investigation and prosecution—from the first reports of the massacre to the dismissal of the last indictment in 1896. Of special importance in Volume 2 are the transcripts of legal proceedings against John D. Lee—many of which the editors have transcribed anew from the shorthand. The two trials against Lee led to his confession, conviction, and ultimately his execution on the massacre site in 1877, all documented in this volume. Historians have long debated the circumstances surrounding the Mountain Meadows Massacre, one of the most disturbing and controversial events in American history, and painful questions linger to this day. This invaluable, exhaustively researched collection allows readers the opportunity to form their own conclusions about the forces behind this dark moment in western U.S. history.
