    Old beat-up trucks, dive bars, gold-rush towns and the epic beauty of the high Sierra Nevadas are the backdrop to this tale of two women who fly-fish their way through a summer of heart-break, high-jinks, drug-lords, wild men, fish and ghosts. A s...

Boeger, Lexi. "Intertwined: The Art of Handspun Yarn, Modern Patterns, and Creative Spinning," Quarry Bks: Indiana Univ. 2008. c.304p. Illus. ISBN 978-159253-374-9. $29.99. Fiber Crafts. Boeger (founder, Pluckyfluff.com), who creates and sells handspun luxury yarns as pop-culture objects, introduced readers to her quirky style of handspinning in her 2005 book, Handspun Revolution. In this richly illustrated coffee-table follow-up, she expands on her earlier ideas, also including 30 different techniques for spinning novelty yarns. These techniques range from the familiar (spinning thick 'n' thin yarn) to the bizarre (making yarn from shredded paper) and are accompanied by projects utilizing the yarns, a journal illustrating Boeger's creative process, and profiles of other yarn artisans. Experienced handspinners with a creative bent will find a wealth of ideas and inspiration in this book that blurs the line between craft and art. Recommended for academic textile collections and large public libraries. "--Library Journal April 2008"
