JUST ARRIVED  Plan out your next vacation with Seth Kugel’s Rediscovering Travel – or, rather, skip most of the planning and relearn the joys of spontaneous discovery in new places.  You can also pick up some inspiration from Gardenlust, by Christopher Woods, or Europe: A Natural History by Tim Flannery.  We have three new books on World War II: Spearhead, by Adam Makos, deals with an American tank gunnery team and the long-lasting effects of their war; Kevin Wilson’s Men of Air looks at bomber crews from the Royal Air Force; and The Darkest Year, by William Klingaman, examines the American home front in 1941 and 1942.  Learn about John Bell Hatcher, a man who supplied fossils to many of the world’s museums, in King of the Dinosaur Hunters, by Lowell Dingus, or peek into the world of fashion with Isaac Mizrahi’s new autobiography.  In Together, writer Judy Goldman recalls her life with her husband before and after a medical procedure left him paralyzed.  Finally, in honor of Women’s History Month, check out three of our new titles.  Louisa on the Front Lines by Samantha Seiple recounts author Louisa May Alcott’s experience as a nurse in Washington, D.C. during the Civil War.  Kate Hubbard’s Devices and Desires traces the life of Bess of Hardwick, a countess and wealthy businesswoman in Elizabethan England.  Women Warriors, by Pamela D. Toler, recounts the often-hidden histories of women fighters, from the Middle East through the Vikings and on into more modern centuries.  In fiction this week, check out three new selections from our fantasy section.  The Priory of the Orange Tree, by Samantha Shannon, is a tale of queens, religions, dragons, and war.  Ann Leckie’s The Raven Tower also features a god, a warrior, and a quest for a throne.  Lastly, Marlon James’s Black Leopard, Red Wolf is the first in a trilogy based in African traditions.
