Are you living a “checklist life”? Are you getting married, working a 9–5 job, and buying a house in the suburbs because you want to, or because that’s what we are all “supposed” to do? Carl Stars was doing just that—“winning” at the game of life—but he was not happy. He always felt there had to be more meaning out there. In this engaging memoir, Carl tells his story and how he changed from chasing money and material possessions to finding true happiness. Carl was raised to be happy; his parents were diligent people who understood the value of working hard, living frugally, and spending their precious time and money on what was most important. Carl shares his childhood memories, and the fortuitous vacation in the Florida Keys that changed the trajectory of his life. Through Carl’s adulthood, there were many drunken adventures. For decades, he somehow held down high-pressure jobs, using alcohol to numb himself to an over-abundance of responsibility he never wanted. He chased the material world—endless dinners, shopping, work, and more work—and all the trappings of “normal.” After Carl started living his own life, by adopting minimalism and doing what he wanted to do, only then did he discover real happiness. Gratitude and Abundance aren’t just buzzwords on Facebook; these are the true keys to happiness!

A surreal, lyrical work of narrative nonfiction that portrays how the largest domestic oil discovery in half a century transformed a forgotten corner of the American West into a crucible of breakneck capitalism. As North Dakota became the nation's second-largest oil producer, Maya Rao set out in steel-toe boots to join a wave of drifters, dreamers, entrepreneurs, and criminals. With an eye for the dark, absurd, and humorous, Rao fearlessly immersed herself in their world to chronicle this modern-day gold rush, from its heady beginnings to OPEC's price war against the US oil industry. She rode shotgun with a surfer-turned-truck driver braving toxic fumes and dangerous roads, dined with businessmen disgraced during the financial crisis, and reported on everyone in between--including an ex-con YouTube celebrity, a trophy wife mired in scandal, and a hard-drinking British Ponzi schemer--in a social scene so rife with intrigue that one investor called the oilfield Peyton Place on steroids. As the boom receded, a culture of greed and recklessness left troubling consequences for investors and longtime residents. Empty trailers and idle oil equipment littered the fields like abandoned farmsteads, leaving the pioneers who built this unlikely civilization to reckon with their legacy. Part Barbara Ehrenreich, part Upton Sinclair, Great American Outpost is a sobering exploration of twenty-first-century America that reads like a frontier novel.
