Captain Bill McDonald (1852–1918) is the most prominent of the ´´Four Great Captains´´ of Texas Ranger history. His career straddled the changing scene from the 19th to the 20th centuries. In 1891 McDonald became captain of Company B of the Frontier Battalion of the Texas Rangers. ´´Captain Bill´´ and the Rangers under his command took part in a number of incidents from the Panhandle region to South Texas. In all these endeavors, only one Ranger lost his life under McDonald´s command. McDonald´s reputation as a gunman rested upon his easily demonstrated markmanship, a flair for using his weapons to intimidate opponents, and the publicity given his numerous exploits. His admirers rank him as one of the great captains of Texas Ranger history. His detractors see him as an irresponsible lawman who accepted questionable information, precipitated violence, hungered for publicity, and related tall tales that cast himself in the hero´s role. Harold J. Weiss, Jr., seeks to find the true Bill McDonald and sort fact from myth. McDonald´s motto says it all: ´´No man in the wrong can stand up against a fellow that´s in the right and keeps on ´a-comin´.´´The book is published by University of North Texas Press.

In all of his travels, Captain Picard has never encountered an opponent more powerful than Q, a being from another continuum that Picard encountered on his very first mission as captain of the starship Enterprise.

But now, Trelane, another member of the continuum whom Captain Kirk and his crew first encountered over 100 years ago, has tapped in to an awesome power source that makes him more powerful than the combined might of the entire continuum. Q warns that, armed with this incredible power, Trelane has become unspeakably dangerous. Now Picard must get involved in an awesome struggle between superbeings. And this time, the stakes are not just Picard´s ship, or the galaxy, or even the universe - this time the stakes are all of creation. For more Trek titles, browse our special Star Trek section! 1.

Through nine years as a columnist with The Age, Bob Murphy revealed himself to be a very different footballer indeed. Shunning the stern-faced statistical analysis that dominates the AFL landscape, he revisited the things about the game that captivated him as a child. His words were the smells of leather and liniment leaping off the page. Gentle, romantic, funny, whimsical, thoughtful, sad - Murphy’s writing is rich, tender yet powerful, above all achingly human. In Leather Soul, he uses moments and events from the last three years of his 312 game career - his three seasons as Western Bulldogs captain - as trigger points to revisit his early career and wander back through his youth, exploring along the way the people and places that have shaped him, from his former priest and nun parents, to wife Justine and their three children, to the teammates and mentors that colour a footballer’s life. How did the country kid with a gypsy’s heart, who carried his footy gear under his arm because he didn’t even have a bag, become an All-Australian captain? How does it feel to turn an opponent inside out with a shimmy of the hips, to connect boot to ball with the crispness of a musical note, to watch it sail majestically through the goals? How do you reconcile the club you love achieving the one thing you’ve truly longed for when you’re a spectator, broken of body and heart? How does it feel to know you can no longer do the things that made you great, that the sun is setting and it’s time to go? The great Australian football bard Martin Flanagan has long insisted Bob Murphy has a book in him like no footballer has written. Leather Soul proves him right. Cover photograph by David Cook. 1.
