Aaron Latham's popular Code of the West took its inspiration from Arthurian legend, exchanging cowboys and ranchers for knights and kings. This sequel returns listeners to the great plains of Texas in the late 19th century, adapting the story of the quest for the Holy Grail.Percy York Goodnight, or Pyg as he prefers, and his mother Revelie travel back to the family ranch in Texas to be reunited with Loving, a man with whom Revelie once shared a passionate affair. He's been shot and is near death, but that is not the only tragedy playing out in the Lone Star State. It seems that the ax of family legend, that once rested in Pyg's father's tombstone, has been stolen. Now Pyg's leading a posse aiming to get it back. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Henry Strozier.

In this research work, samples were collected from 4 stages of leather processing, soaking, liming, deliming & bating. Quantitative bacterial analysis showed that aerobic heterotrophic bacterial load of the samples ranged between 134,000 & 344,000 and 104,000 & 600,000 cfu/ml in NA medium and PYG medium, respectively. Total of 70 bacterial isolates were isolated & based on better proteolytic activity 27 were selected for detail study. All 27 isolates were Gram positive, rod shaped, spore former and Bacillus. In SMA medium proteolytic activity was measured as zone ratio which ranged from 2.61±0.44-6.42±0.95. With better proteolytic activities 4 isolates were confirmed as Bacillus subtilis B20, B. subtilis PB18, B. amyloliqefaciens Egy25 and Bacillus sp. BVC38 based on 16s rDNA sequencing. Alkaline protease production range was 48.38-169.70 U/ml & Bacillus subtilis B20 was the maximum producer. Crude enzymes showed good detergent additive performance & could effectively dehair like the chemicals (lime-sulphide) used for dehairing. 8 isolates showed potentiality in pollution management through decolourization of Acid Brown-75 & Acid Brown-14 dyes.
