An American river’s path to ecological redemption . . .

River of Redemption Almanac of Life on the Anacostia Krista Schlyer

Incorporating seven years of photography and research, Krista Schlyer portrays life along the Anacostia River, a Washington, DC, waterway rich in history and biodiversity that has nonetheless lingered for years in obscurity and neglect in our nation’s capital. River of Redemption offers an experience of the river that reveals its eons of natural history, centuries of destruction, and decades of restoration efforts. The story of the Anacostia echoes the story of rivers across America. Inspired by Aldo Leopold’s classic book, A Sand County Almanac, Krista Schlyer evokes a consciousness of time and place, taking readers through the seasons in the watershed as well as through the river’s complex history and ecology. As with rivers nationwide, the ways we’ve changed the Anacostia affect the people and wildlife that inhabit its shores, from the headwaters in Maryland, past its confluence with the Potomac River, and ultimately to the Chesapeake Bay. Centuries of abuse at the hands of people who have altered the landscape and mistreated the waterway have transformed it into a polluted, toxic soup unfit for swimming or fishing. The forgotten river is both a reminder of the worst humanity can do to the natural landscape and a wellspring of memory that offers a roadmap back to health and well-being for watershed residents, human and non-human alike. Blending stunning photography with informative and poignant text, River of Redemption offers the opportunity to reinvent our role in urban ecology and to redeem our relationship with this national river and watersheds nationwide. River Books, sponsored by The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment, Texas State University

KRISTA SCHLYER is a nature writer and photographer. Her book Continental Divide: Wildlife, People, and the Border Wall has won numerous awards, including the American Library Association’s “Best of the Best” distinction, the National Outdoor Book Award, and the Ansel Adams Award for Conservation Photography. She is a senior fellow in the International League of Conservation Photographers. She lives in Mount Rainier, Maryland, in the Anacostia River watershed.

Why do flowers even exist?

The Natural History of Flowers Michael Fogden and Patricia Fogden

Flowers have played an important role in human culture and survival for thousands of years. The final products of flowers—fruits and seeds—are vitally important as food. Flowers provide bursts of color to homes and gardens and they symbolize love, sorrow, and renewal. Yet we often overlook their real purpose. Why do flowers exist and why do they have certain colors, shapes, and smells? What function does a flower have in the life and survival of the plants themselves? In nature, flowers play an essential role in improving a plant’s chances of survival. Some flowers are pollinated by wind or water but most are designed to attract and reward pollinators, such as bees, butterflies, birds, and bats, to carry their pollen from flower to flower. After being pollinated, flowers produce fruits and again take advantage of wind, water, and animals to disperse their seeds, ensuring a new generation of their species. Pollination and seed dispersal are fine-tuned systems, and their importance in sustaining a healthy environment cannot be overstated. And, as ongoing climate and other environmental changes apply new pressures, flowers must continue to adapt in order to survive. In this beautifully illustrated book with over 200 stunning photographs, Michael Fogden and Patricia Fogden draw from existing research and their extensive field experiences all over the world to present a detailed but accessible introduction to the natural history of flowers. They discuss a representative sample of flowering and fruiting strategies, illustrating interactions between plants and their pollinators and dispersers, and conclude with descriptions of their favorite tropical flowers.

Adventures of a Frontier Naturalist The Life and Times of Dr. Gideon Lincecum, Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Edition

Edited by Jerry B. Lincecum, Edward H. Phillips, and Peggy A. Redshaw Foreword by A. C. Greene Preface to the new edition by Jerry B. Lincecum and Peggy A. Redshaw Twenty-five years ago, Jerry B. Lincecum, Edward H. Phillips, and Peggy A. Redshaw published Adventures of a Frontier Naturalist. Collated from four overlapping memoirs, some not previously published, Gideon Lincecum’s account of his life as Indian trader, physician, and naturalist is lively and full of insight. Lincecum’s experiences of following the frontier in the early 1800s, all the way from Georgia to Texas, were not so unusual in themselves, but the intellect and wit that inform his memoirs make them unique. His scientific articles and collections of specimens, his correspondence with leading scientists of the time, and his six years among the colony of ex-Confederates in Tuxpan, Mexico, offer a first-hand perspective on that age. Lincecum portrays many aspects of frontier social life, including marriage and divorce, slavery, education, religion, the social life of the Choctaws and Chikasaws, medical controversies, and the building of towns. He vividly describes the unspoiled flora and fauna of Texas in 1835 and tells tales of hunting deer, bear, turkey, and waterfowl. This anniversary edition includes a new foreword by Jerry B. Lincecum and Peggy A. Redshaw, offering their insights into the relevance of Gideon Lincecum’s writings today.

Life-changing experiences for wildlife and people . . . MELISSA GASKILL

Pandas to Penguins

Ethical Encounters with Animals at Risk Melissa Gaskill

Perhaps nothing about nature calls to us as deeply as wild animals. To see an enormous whale leaping out of the water, the eerily human eyes of a gorilla, or the comical waddle of a penguin; to hear the ethereal howl of a wolf or majestic roar of a lion—these experiences change us. Around the world, animal populations are threatened by loss of habitat, pollution, climate change, overhunting, and poaching—and yet wildlife-based tourism is growing rapidly and makes up as much as forty percent of the worldwide tourism industry today. In Pandas to Penguins, nature journalist Melissa Gaskill profiles twenty-five species and one endangered ecosystem, highlighting local ecofriendly travel outfitters operating in the area for those seeking out their own enriching personal experience with wildlife. She provides basic information about each animal’s behavior and biology, descriptions of the threats they face, and maps, photographs, and first-person accounts of wildlife watching. Each species meets three basic criteria: 1) some level of risk to its survival, 2) a reasonably accessible habitat where travelers have a chance to view the animal in the wild in its natural setting, and 3) responsible tourism that directly benefits the animal or its habitat. More than a wildlife bucket list or an exhortation to “see them before they’re gone,” this guide is intended to identify wildlife experiences that can be life changing for people as well as animals. Extinction is tragic but not inevitable. We can all do something to make a difference, and Pandas to Penguins is an important resource for adventurers and armchair travelers alike.

MELISSA GASKILL is a professional journalist with thirty years of experience writing about the outdoors, nature, and science. She is the author of Best Hikes with Dogs: Texas Hill Country and Gulf Coast and the coauthor of A Worldwide Travel Guide to Sea Turtles. She lives in Austin.

“Terror and beauty, aggression and idealism . . . in the Land of Enchantment”

Nuclear New Mexico

A Historical, Natural, and Virtual Tour

M. Jimmie Killingsworth and Jacqueline S. Palmer With photographs by James E. Frost The mountains, valleys, forests, and sands of 1940s New Mexico served as a picturesque backdrop to the dawn of the Atomic Age, the land’s natural beauty coexisting with secretive, nuclear development. Today, nuclear tourists and nature tourists travel a shared path through the state as the history of the bomb is commemorated at official sites, often alongside monuments to natural preservation: Trinity Site, bordered by the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Preserve; Los Alamos, wedged between Valles Caldera and Bandelier National Monument; and the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant, across from Carlsbad Caverns. More than just a glimpse into the history of the atomic bomb and the tourism it spawned within New Mexico, Nuclear New Mexico also examines the impact of nuclear testing within the rise of environmentalism. As readers explore New Mexico’s landscape and its history, they will recognize familiar uncertainties and concerns about their own special places on the planet as societies adapt to rapidly altered landscapes.

Hidden in plain sight . . .

The Texas Calaboose and Other Forgotten Jails William E. Moore

A calaboose is, quite simply, a tiny jail. Designed to house prisoners only for a short time, a calaboose could be anything from an iron cage to a poured concrete blockhouse. Easily constructed and more affordable for small communities than a full-sized building, calabooses once dotted the rural landscape. Though a relic of a bygone era in law enforcement and no longer in use, many calabooses remain in communities throughout Texas, often hidden in plain sight. In The Texas Calaboose and Other Forgotten Jails, William E. Moore has compiled the first guidebook to extant calabooses in Texas. He explores the history of the calaboose, including its construction, use, and eventual decline, but the heart of the book is in the alphabetically arranged photo tour of calabooses across the state. Each entry is accompanied by a vignette describing the unique features of the calaboose at hand, any infamous or otherwise memorable occupants, and the state of the calaboose at present. Most have been long abandoned, but because many remain on city or town property, some have been repurposed into storage buildings or even government offices. In certain ways, these small jails encapsulate the history of outlying communities during a time of transition from the “Wild West” to the twentieth century. Some of the structures have been preserved and cared-for, but despite the stories they can tell, many more are endangered or have already been lost. This definitive guide to tiny Texas jails serves as a record of a unique and disappearing feature of our heritage.

“Much more than the tale of a single cattle trail . . . ”

The Old Chisholm Trail From Cow Path to Tourist Stop Wayne Ludwig

The Old Chisholm Trail charts the evolution of the major Texas cattle trails, explores the rise of the Chisholm Trail in legend and lore, and analyzes the role of cattle trail tourism long after the end of the trail driving era itself. The result of years of original and innovative research—often using documents and sources unavailable to previous generations of historians—Wayne Ludwig’s groundbreaking study offers a new and nuanced look at an important but short-lived era in the history of the American West. Controversy over the name and route of the Chisholm Trail has persisted since before the dust had even settled on the old cattle trails. But the popularity of late nineteenth-century Wild West shows, dime novels, and twentieth-century radio, movie, and television western drama propelled the already bygone era of the cattle trail into myth—and a lucrative one at that. Ludwig correlates the rise of automobile tourism with an explosion of interest in the Chisholm Trail. Community leaders were keenly aware of the potential economic impact if tourists were induced to visit their town rather than another, and the Chisholm Trail was often just the hook needed. Numerous “historical” markers were erected on little more than hearsay or boosterish memory, and as a result, the true history of the Chisholm Trail has been overshadowed. The Old Chisholm Trail is the first comprehensive examination of the Chisholm Trail since Wayne Gard’s 1954 classic study, The Chisholm Trail, and makes an important—and modern—contribution to the history of the American West.

“. . . one of the greatest field naturalists ever.”

Vernon Bailey

Writings of a Field Naturalist on the Frontier Edited by David J. Schmidly

For the first time, this volume presents Vernon Bailey’s correspondences and field notes spanning the majority of his life and career, collected and annotated by David J. Schmidly. Born in 1864 and raised on a Minnesota farm, Vernon Bailey became the first person to conduct extensive biological surveys of Texas, New Mexico, North Dakota, and Oregon. He was one of the founding members of the American Society of Mammalogists and pioneered the humane treatment of animals during fieldwork, developing and patenting traps designed to limit injuries or unnecessary stress. From an early age, Bailey developed an affinity for animals, observing their behaviors and eventually collecting specimens for closer study. He developed his own traps for catching mammals, birds, and reptiles and taught himself taxidermy from a book. When he was twenty-one, Bailey began sending samples of the animals he preserved to C. H. Merriam, the chief of the newly created Division of Economic Ornithology and Mammalogy of the USDA, later renamed the Bureau of Biological Survey and now the US Fish and Wildlife Service. Merriam was so impressed with Baily’s work that he hired him, appointed him special field agent, and promptly sent him to the “inner frontiers” of the western and southwestern United States, despite the fact that Bailey had no formal training in biology. During his long career, Bailey kept detailed field notes, chronicling his travels and wildlife observations. These writings provide fascinating insight into not only people’s relationships with and efforts to understand wildlife but also the ways the country was rapidly growing and changing at the beginning of the twentieth century.

DAVID J. SCHMIDLY is a prominent mammalogist and the author of nine books on the natural history of mammals, including Bats of Texas. He was formerly the president of the University of New Mexico, Oklahoma State University, and Texas Tech University. He lives in Albuquerque.

“ . . . a place of last resort, of biological last stands.”

Riverwoods

Exploring the Wild Neches

Charles Kruvand Introduction by Thad Sitton In this stunning photographic tribute to one of Texas’ most intriguing and perhaps least understood rivers, Riverwoods: Exploring the Wild Neches takes readers on a unique adventure along, and sometimes into, the wild and murky waters of the Neches River. The Neches flows through the heart of East Texas, past primordial bottomland forests, timber and oil industries, and elusive denizens—humans, alligators, bobcats, and herons. Although the river and its watershed have inspired authors, artists, and photographers, it can also seem impenetrable, intimidating, or just plain unsightly to outsiders. Spending many days canoeing the river and nights camping on the banks, Charles Kruvand was drawn to the complicated allure of the Neches river and woods. Once common across the southeastern United States, the Neches bottomland forests exemplify an ecosystem that has almost passed out of existence. Thad Sitton, an East Texas native and noted historian, opens the book with an introduction to the historical, cultural, and ecological significance of the Neches River. He takes readers through time from early Native American inhabitants to Spanish and Anglo settlers to present-day East Texans. He also describes the environmental battles fought over preserving parts of the river woodlands surrounding the waterway and wildlife that have depended on the river for sustenance. Through beautiful photographs and stirring recollections of his trip along the river, Charles Kruvand weaves a rare portrait of one of the last wild rivers in Texas.

His photographs are featured in The Living Waters of Texas by Ken Kramer, and he is the recipient of the 2010 Art in Service to the Environment Award by the Lone Star Chapter of the Sierra Club. THAD SITTON is a Texas historian and author who is best known for his expertise in oral history and East Texas.

A master photographer captures the magnificent Texas Hill Country . . .

The Texas Hill Country A Photographic Adventure

Michael H. Marvins With contributions by Joe Holley and Roy Flukinger Like many Texans, Michael H. Marvins has been making regular pilgrimages to the Hill Country for much of his life. Traveling the back roads of the Texas Hill Country, cameras always poised for action, Marvins has captured the excitement of small-town rodeos, savored the mesquite-smoked atmosphere of local eateries, observed the daily lives of people on the land, and admired the scenic beauty of the landscape and its natural denizens. Most important, he has captured his impressions with the skilled eye of a master photographer. Popular Houston Chronicle columnist Joe Holley opens The Texas Hill Country by highlighting the many qualities that draw Marvins—and so many of the rest of us—to the Hill Country. Next, Roy Flukinger, senior curator of photography at the University of Texas’ Harry Ransom Center, discusses Marvins’s unique photographic vision and the fresh ways in which he helps us see this popular region. But the principal focus in The Texas Hill Country: A Photographic Adventure centers on Marvins’s artful images, inviting readers to share his unique perspectives on this enchanting and popular region. He takes us with him on leisurely backcountry drives and into the laughter and swirl of dance halls. His lens embraces the people, the land, and the culture that keep so many Texans—and would-be Texans—coming back to the Hill Country again and again. Number Eleven: Charles and Elizabeth Prothro Texas Photography Series

MICHAEL H. MARVINS is a Houston-based photographer whose work is included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts (Houston), the Amon Carter Museum, the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas, the Grace Museum (Abilene), the Victoria and Albert Museum (London), the International Photography Hall of Fame, the New Orleans Museum of Art, and other locations.

Finding and photographing beautiful, fascinating, and sometimes dangerous reptiles and amphibians in Texas . . .

Herping Texas

The Quest for Reptiles and Amphibians Michael Smith and Clint King

Herping Texas The Quest for Reptiles and Amphibians

Coiled beneath discarded trash or rocky slabs, basking along river edges, and tucked into rock cuts beside the highway, reptiles and amphibians constantly surround us. While many people go out of their way to avoid snakes or shudder at the thought of touching a toad, herpers take to the field armed with cameras, hooks, and notebooks hoping to come across a horned lizard, green tree frog, or even a diamondback rattlesnake. In Herping Texas: The Quest for Reptiles and Amphibians, Michael Smith and Clint King, expert naturalists and field herpers, take readers on their adventures across the state as they search for favorite herps and rare finds. Organized by ecoregion, Herping Texas describes some of the state’s most spectacular natural places, from Big Bend to the Big Thicket. Each chapter contains photographs of the various snakes, lizards, toads, and turtles Smith and King have encountered on their trips. Part nature travel writing and part guide to field herping, Herping Texas also includes a section on getting started, where the authors give readers necessary background on best field herping practices. A glossary defines herping lingo and scientific terms for newcomers, and an appendix lists threatened and endangered species at the state and federal level. Herping Texas promotes experiencing natural places and wildlife equipped with solid information and a responsible conservation ethic. Throughout their decades tracking herps, Smith and King have collected humorous anecdotes and fascinating facts about reptiles and amphibians. By sharing those, they hope to dispel some of the stigma and false ideas people have about these misunderstood animals. Myrna and David K. Langford Books on Working Lands

What do caterpillars eat?

Native Host Plants for Texas Butterflies A Field Guide

Jim Weber, Lynne Weber, and Roland H. Wauer While many growers focus on attracting adult butterflies to their gardens, fewer know about the plants that caterpillars need to survive. Native host plants—wildflowers, trees, shrubs, vines, grasses, and sedges—not only provide a site for the butterfly to lay its eggs, they also provide a ready food source for the emerging caterpillar. Think of these plants as the nurseries of the garden. This user-friendly, heavily illustrated field guide describes 101 native larval host plants in Texas. Each species account includes descriptive information on each plant, a distribution map, and photos of both the caterpillars and adult butterflies who frequent those plants. An adult butterfly may nectar on a wide variety of flowers, but caterpillars are much more restricted in their food sources. Some feed on only a limited number of plant species, so female butterflies seek out these specific plants to lay their eggs. For example, the host plants for Monarch caterpillars are various species of milkweed. Often, these plants are not the same as the ones the adult butterfly will later use for nectar. Learning more about the plants caterpillars need is crucial for butterfly conservation. Butterflies’ dependency on specific caterpillar host plants is one of the key factors restricting their range and distribution. Armed with this knowledge, readers can also hone their ability to find specific species of breeding butterflies in nature. This is a handy guide whether you are in the field searching for butterflies or on the hunt for butterfly-friendly options at your local plant sale. Myrna and David K.

More than a surgeon . . .

Dr. Arthur Spohn

Surgeon, Inventor, and Texas Medical Pioneer

DR. ARTHUR SPOHN Surgeon, Inventor, and Texas Medical Pioneer

Jane Clements Monday and Frances Brannen Vick With Charles W. Monday Jr. Introduction by Kenneth L. Mattox In this first comprehensive biography of Dr. Arthur Edward Spohn, authors Jane Clements Monday, Frances Brannen Vick, and Charles W. Monday Jr., MD, illuminate the remarkable nineteenth-century story of a trailblazing physician who helped to modernize the practice of medicine in Texas. Arthur Spohn was unusually innovative for the time and exceptionally dedicated to improving medical care. Among his many surgical innovations was the development of a specialized tourniquet for “bloodless operations” that was later adopted as a field instrument by militaries throughout the world. To this day, he holds the world record for the removal of the largest tumor—328 pounds—from a patient who fully recovered. Recognizing the need for modern medical care in South Texas, Spohn, with the help of Alice King, raised funds to open the first hospital in Corpus Christi. Today, his name and institutional legacy live on in the region through the Christus Spohn Health System, the largest hospital system in South Texas. This biography of a medical pioneer recreates for readers the medical, regional, and family worlds in which Spohn moved, making it an important contribution not only to the history of South Texas but also to the history of modern medicine.

“A one-of-a-kind, made-in-Texas original . . . ”

I’m Dr. Red Duke

Bryant Boutwell Foreword by George H. W. Bush James Henry “Red” Duke Jr., MD, was an icon of twentiethcentury medicine, a pioneer and visionary, and a lifelong son of Texas who, far from forgetting his roots, reveled in them. Bryant Boutwell’s entertaining and meticulously researched biography of Red Duke, based on years of interviews with Duke and his family, friends, and colleagues as well as painstaking exploration of both public archives and personal papers and effects, not only pays tribute to a great surgeon and his influence but also crafts a detailed and intimate portrait of the man behind the larger-thanlife television image. Not only did Duke found the Life Flight air ambulance service that helped place Memorial Hermann Hospital and the Texas Medical Center at the forefront of the nation’s trauma units, he also advanced the use of media communications for reaching the public with both common-sense and cutting-edge health information. His famous tagline—“From the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston . . . I’m Dr. Red Duke”— delivered in the deadpan drawl of a Texan, could be heard in countless homes during the broadcast of the local evening news during the 1980s and 1990s. Beyond these accomplishments, Duke was an Eagle Scout, an ordained minister, a medical missionary, a conservationist, a hunting guide, and a tank commander. Featuring a wealth of previously unpublished images that help to chronicle Duke’s life and storied career, I’m Dr. Red Duke opens with a foreword by fellow Houstonian George H. W. Bush, who calls Duke “one of the brightest Points of Light Barbara and I have had the privilege to know.” BRYANT BOUTWELL was the inaugural John P. McGovern, MD, Professor of Oslerian Medicine at the University of Texas McGovern Medical School at Houston and a UT System distinguished teaching professor. He is also the author of John P.

A fierce football rivalry, a halftime riot, and a “cold-case” homicide . . .

Battle of the Brazos

A Texas Football Rivalry, a Riot, and a Murder T. G. Webb Foreword by John A. Adams Jr.

During halftime of the October 30, 1926, football game between Baylor University and the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas, a massive riot erupted between the two student bodies that resulted in the death of Texas A&M senior cadet Charles Sessums. Though various newspaper articles have chronicled this infamous “cold case” over the last ninety years, none has placed the riot in its proper context, nor has any official determination ever identified the person responsible for Sessums’s death. T. G. Webb has pored over related historic documents, including contemporary newspaper accounts, records in the library archives of both universities, personal correspondence of the victim’s family, and the original report of the Pinkerton detective hired by Texas A&M to investigate the incident. In Battle of the Brazos, Webb examines and explains the riot, its origins, and its aftermath, untangling many enduring myths that grew up around the event over the years to establish the definitive record. He allows readers to witness the heart-breaking arrival of Cadet Sessums’s parents at the Waco train station as they came to receive the body of their deceased son, and he places readers amid the swirl of charges, recriminations, and allegations that clouded the atmosphere at both Texas A&M and Baylor. Most significantly, Webb provides previously unpublished indications of a cover-up designed to shield the killer’s identity from public knowledge. This “historical whodunit” is a must-read for sports fans and historians, devotees of “leather-helmet” football, local history buffs, and Texas football enthusiasts alike.

Tee up for eighteen holes of Texas history . . .

Links to the Past

The Hidden History on Texas Golf Courses

Dan K. Utley with Stanley O. Graves As they tee up, make their approach shots, or line up their putts, few Texan golfers likely realize that the familiar landscapes of tee boxes, fairways, and greens can obscure stories from the past that played out on those same grounds. In Links to the Past: The Hidden History on Texas Golf Courses, authors Dan K. Utley and Stanley O. Graves take readers on a historic (and prehistoric) tour of eighteen Texas golf courses that have surprising connections to history. On the “front nine,” points of interest include encounters with dinosaur fossils near Austin, a Comanche raid on a Spanish mission near Menard, and a battle between Anglo buffalo hunters and Native Americans near Lubbock. The “back nine” explores reminders of the East Texas lumber industry near Diboll, a training ground for the Rough Riders outside downtown San Antonio, and a race riot near Houston in 1917, among other locations. Fun, compelling, and enlightening, this book is a reminder that history has occurred all around us, not just in historic districts, state parks, or even where official state markers might be found. Featuring “scorecards” for each course that include location, historical facts, and a “signature hole of history,” as well as historical and contemporary photographs and informative sidebars, Links to the Past is sure to entertain. Golfers, history buffs, and heritage tourists will want to toss this handy and engaging book in the front seat of the car—or zip it into the side pocket of their golf bags.

“Celebrating the remarkable and unremarkable women who shaped Texas history . . . ”

Women in Texas History Angela Boswell

In recent decades, a small but growing number of historians have dedicated their tireless attention to analyzing the role of women in Texas history. Each contribution—and there have been many— represents a brick in the wall of new Texas history. From early Native societies to astronauts, Women in Texas History assembles those bricks into a carefully crafted structure as the first book to cover the full scope of Texas women’s history. By emphasizing the differences between race and ethnicity, Angela Boswell uses three broad themes to tie together the narrative of women in Texas history. First, the physical and geographic challenges of Texas as a place significantly affected women’s lives, from the struggles of isolated frontier farming to the opportunities and problems of increased urbanization. Second, the changing landscape of legal and political power continued to shape women’s lives and opportunities, from the ballot box to the courthouse and beyond. Finally, Boswell demonstrates the powerful influence of social and cultural forces on the identity, agency, and everyday life of women in Texas. In challenging male-dominated legal and political systems, Texan women shaped (and were shaped by) class, religion, community organizations, literary and artistic endeavors, and more. Women in Texas History is the first book to narrate the entire span of Texas women’s history and marks a major achievement in telling the full story of the Lone Star State. Historians and general readers alike will find this book an informative and enjoyable read for anyone interested in the history of Texas or the history of women.

ANGELA BOSWELL is the dean of arts and sciences and professor of history at Henderson State University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas, where she also resides.

Preserving German Texan Identity Reminiscences of William A. Trenckmann, 1859–1935

Edited by Walter L. Buenger and Walter D. Kamphoefner Born in Millheim, Texas, to a family of German immigrants who moved to Texas in the wake of the 1848 revolution, William Andreas Trenckmann was a teacher, journalist, and publisher who successfully combined his German heritage with a new, distinctly Texan identity. His education was cultivated at the brand new Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas, where he distinguished himself as the valedictorian of the first graduating class; he later served on the college’s board of directors and was even offered the presidency. From 1907 to 1909, he represented Austin County in the Texas legislature. Trenckmann’s lasting contribution to Texas history, however, was the creation of Das Wochenblatt, a German-language weekly newspaper that he edited and published for over forty years. Das Wochenblatt became a popular and respected source of information for German-speaking immigrants, their descendants, and the Texas communities where they lived and worked. Through the paper, Trenckmann advocated for civil liberties and free elections. He also vigorously opposed prohibition, the Ku Klux Klan, and later the rise of Adolf Hitler and National Socialism. When the United States entered World War I, many German-language publications were suspended or otherwise heavily censored, but Trenckmann’s newspaper was granted a rare exemption from the wartime government. From 1931 to 1933, Trenckmann serialized his memoirs, Erlebtes und Beobachtetes, or “experiences and observations.” In Preserving German Texan Identity, historians Walter L. Buenger and Walter D. Kamphoefner present a revised and annotated translation of those memoirs as a revealing window into the lives of German Texans in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

Understanding Texas in the Civil War . . .

Palmito Ranch

From Civil War Battlefield to National Historic Landmark

Jody Edward Ginn and William Alexander McWhorter Foreword by Richard B. McCaslin Despite the strategic importance of the Lower Rio Grande Valley during the Civil War, the two battles fought there—the first (September 1864) and the second (May 1865) battles of Palmito Ranch—have largely faded from public memory even as the second battle earned the title “Last Land Battle of the Civil War.” In Palmito Ranch: From Civil War Battlefield to National Historic Landmark, Jody Edward Ginn and William Alexander McWhorter document efforts to redress this lacuna in the popular consciousness. They offer new information about these battles while chronicling the efforts to save and preserve the battlefield site, one of the few places in Texas where the war was contested. Opening with a crisp retelling of the principal military events that unfolded at Palmito Ranch, near the Confederate port city of Brownsville, Ginn and McWhorter recount the initiative pursued by a multidisciplinary team organized largely through the efforts of the Texas Historical Commission to study, document, and preserve this important Texas historic site. Now, visitors to the area may benefit from not only improved and expanded historical markers, but also a radio transmitter and a viewing platform, along with other interpretive aids. All this is due to the campaign spearheaded by McWhorter, Ginn, and a cohort of dedicated volunteers and professionals. Providing a case study in constituency building and public awareness raising to preserve and promote historic sites, Palmito Ranch will interest and educate heritage tourists, Civil War enthusiasts, and travelers to South Texas and the Lower Rio Grande Valley. JODY EDWARD GINN was the 2001 and 2002 winner of the Texas State Historical Association’s Fred White Jr. Research Fellowship in Texas History. He is an adjunct associate professor of history and a media consultant who lives in Austin. WILLIAM ALEXANDER MCWHORTER is the former executive director of the Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission. Previously he served as military historian at the Texas Historical Commission.

A handy, easy-to-use field guide to the Civil War sites of the Lower Rio Grande Valley . . .

Blue and Gray on the Border The Rio Grande Valley Civil War Trail

Christopher L. Miller, Russell K. Skowronek, and Roseann Bacha-Garza Foreword by John L. Nau III Most general histories of the Civil War pay scant attention to the many important military events that took place in the Lower Rio Grande Valley along the Texas-Mexico border. It was here, for example, that many of the South’s cotton exports, all-important to its funding for the war effort, were shuttled across the Rio Grande into Mexico for shipment to markets across the Atlantic. It was here that the Union blockade was felt perhaps most keenly. And it was here where longstanding cross-border rivalries and shifting political fortunes on both sides of the river made for a constant undercurrent of intrigue. And yet, most accounts of this long and bloody conflict give short shrift to the complexities of the ethnic tensions, political maneuvering, and international diplomacy that vividly colored the Civil War in this region. Now, Christopher L. Miller, Russell K. Skowronek, and Roseann Bacha-Garza have woven together the history and archaeology of the Lower Rio Grande Valley into a densely illustrated travel guide featuring important historical and military sites of the Civil War period. Blue and Gray on the Border integrates the sites, colorful personalities, cross-border conflicts, and intriguing historical vignettes that outline the story of the Civil War along the TexasMexico border. This resource-packed book will aid heritage travelers, students, and history buffs in their discovery of the rich history of the Civil War in the Rio Grande Valley. CHRISTOPHER L. MILLER, professor of history at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, is associate director of the Community Historical Archaeology Project with Schools (CHAPS).

The Life and Times of Victor Marion Rose, Poet and Historian of Early Texas Louise S. O’Connor

During much of his brief and troubled life, Victor Marion Rose was a walking anomaly. The scion of a venerable Texas farming and ranching family, he was widely reported to be unable to distinguish one horse from another. He fought for the Confederacy and endured imprisonment at Ohio’s notorious Camp Chase, yet he later bitterly decried the Civil War as utter folly for the South. His florid poetry often celebrated the feminine mystique and ideal as he considered it, yet he was infamously unfaithful and sometimes abusive in his relationships with women. He built a respected reputation as a journalist and historian, and at the same time, he struggled with alcoholism and bouts of deep depression. Born in 1842 as the third of thirteen children of a wealthy Victoria, Texas, planter, Victor Marion Rose served as publisher and editor of the Victoria Advocate from 1869 to 1873 before moving to Laredo—reportedly due to a scandalous love affair— where he edited the Laredo Times. He also wrote volumes of poetry and published several histories of South Texas and the biography of Gen. Ben McCulloch. Rose ultimately succumbed to pneumonia in February 1893. Louise S. O’Connor, a descendant of Victor Marion Rose, has mined family records and recorded family traditions about “Uncle Vic.” She carefully reviewed Rose’s collected papers, both in her personal possession and in the archives of the Briscoe Center for American History and other repositories. Wild Rose provides an intimate portrait of a complicated individual who, despite his frequently unsuccessful struggles with his demons, nevertheless left an important mark on Texas history and letters.

“By centering imaginatively around the ranch and its environs in that unique American region of the Hill Country of Texas, Rothman offers a useful approach to understanding the always fascinating Lyndon Johnson.”—Journal of American History “Rothman does a good job of proving the importance of ‘the home place’ in the America of the 1960s. . . . Johnson wanted a place where he could be biggest and always right, and the ranch was–and during his five-year presidency became even more so–that place.”—Wichita Falls Times Record News “Mr. Rothman does a nice job of explaining the politics of place, as well as describing the appeal of life on the LBJ Ranch.”—The Dallas Morning News HAL K.

Deciphering painted symbols from prehistoric Texas . . .

Pecos River Style Rock Art A Prehistoric Iconography

James Burr Harrison Macrae Pecos River style pictographs are one of the most complex forms of rock art worldwide. The dramatic prehistoric pictographs on the limestone overhangs of the lower Pecos and Devils Rivers in West Texas have been the subject of preservation and study since the 1930s, and dedicated research continues to this day. The medium is large-scale, polychrome pictographs in open rock shelter settings, emphasizing the animistic/shamanistic religion practiced by the local aboriginal peoples.

Pecos RiveR style Rock ARt a prehistoric iconography

Creating large-scale rock murals required intelligence, skill, and knowledge. These enigmatic images, some dating to 4,500 years ago and possibly earlier, depict strange, vaguely human and animal shapes and various geometric forms. While full understanding of the meaning of these images is abstruse, archaeologists and other scholars have identified what they believe to be patterns and religious themes, mixed with what could be figures and objects from everyday life in the local huntergatherer culture as it existed in the region centuries before the arrival of colonizing Europeans. Although interpretation of these pictographs remains controversial, in Pecos River Style Rock Art: A Prehistoric Iconography, James Burr Harrison Macrae contributes to the beginnings of a syntactic “grammar” for these images that can be applied in diverse contexts without direct reference to any particular interpretation. “The strength of structural-iconographic analysis,” Macrae writes, “is that it relies on repetitive patterns rather than idiosyncratic information, such as trying to make broad inferences from one or only a few sites.” Pecos River Style Rock Art offers the framework of an empirical methodology for understanding these ancient artworks.

What if the environmental reckoning is not far off in the future, but right here, right now? What if we cannot recognize it because we are trained not to?

Entertaining Futility

Despair and Hope in the Time of Climate Change Andrew McMurry

In playfully pessimistic and thought-provoking essays, author Andrew McMurry explores a vital but fundamentally perverse human practice: destroying our planet while imagining we are not. How are humans able to do this? Entertaining Futility: Despair and Hope in the Time of Climate Change investigates the discourses of hope, progress, and optimism in the era of climate change, concepts that, McMurry argues, are polite names for blind faith, greed, and wishful thinking. The itemized list of humanity’s arrogance can quickly lead to despair, so McMurry compensates by presenting the news in a darkly comic and irreverent style. McMurry believes human culture relies on a full suite of rhetorical tricks to distract us from our own demise. He investigates the role language, discourse, media, and technology play in shaping perceptions and misperceptions of our complex environmental crises. Writing in a mode that freely mixes the scholarly, fictive, poetic, and personal, McMurry draws on philosophy, history, ecology, film, science fiction, and pop culture to raise questions that are difficult to face, let alone answer. In the author’s words, “our age is utterly paralyzing unless you can crack jokes about it.” Entertaining Futility offers no easy solutions to today’s environmental calamities and, in fact, claims that perhaps the continual proposing of solutions is part of the problem. Instead, McMurry encourages readers to examine their own deeply held beliefs about the environment and the future and to look more closely at where those beliefs originate. By pulling back the curtain, he reveals the rhetorical and cultural ruses that distract us from the reality of our environmental crises.

The raucous, delightful, no-holds-barred story of how contemporary art came to Houston . . .

Collision

The Contemporary Art Scene in Houston, 1972–1985 Pete Gershon

In this expansive and vigorous survey of the Houston art scene of the 1970s and 1980s, author Pete Gershon describes the city’s emergence as a locus for the arts, fueled by a boom in oil prices and by the arrival of several catalyzing figures, including museum director James Harithas and sculptor James Surls. Harithas was a fierce champion for Texan artists during his tenure as the director of the Contemporary Arts Museum– Houston (CAM). He put Texas artists on the map, but his renegade style proved too confrontational for the museum’s benefactors, and after four years, he wore out his welcome.

CoLlisIOn

After Harithas’s departure from the CAM, the chainsaw-wielding Surls established the Lawndale Annex as a largely unsupervised outpost of the University of Houston art department. Inside this dirty, cavernous warehouse, a new generation of Houston artists discovered their identities and began to flourish. Both the CAM and the Lawndale Annex set the scene for the emergence of small, downtown, artist-run spaces, including Studio One, the Center for Art and Performance, Midtown Arts Center, and DiverseWorks. Finally, in 1985, the Museum of Fine Arts presented Fresh Paint: The Houston School, a nationally publicized survey of work by Houston painters. The exhibition capped an era of intensive artistic development and suggested that the city was about to be recognized, along with New York and Los Angeles, as a major center for art-making activity. Drawing upon primary archival materials, contemporary newspaper and magazine accounts, and over sixty interviews with significant figures, Gershon presents a narrative that preserves and interweaves the stories and insights of those who transformed the Houston art scene into the vibrant community that it is today.

A Book Maker’s Art The Bond of Arts and Letters at Texas A&M University Press

William E. Reaves and Linda J. Reaves Foreword by Shannon Davies A significant collection of Texas paintings and prints hangs humbly and inconspicuously throughout the offices, conference rooms, and hallways of Texas A&M University Press. These works comprise the Frank H. Wardlaw Collection of Texas Art, named in honor of the Press’s founding director, who was one of the genuine publishing icons of his day. Established in 1983 at the dedication of the new headquarters of Texas A&M University Press on the campus of Texas A&M, the collection began with twenty inaugural contributions that came as gifts from respected Texas artists whose art appeared in the books Wardlaw had shepherded to publication at the Press. Since then, the collection—which continues to be linked to artists published by the Press—has grown to house more than one hundred paintings, photographs, and illustrations. Among the noted artists featured in the collection are E. M. (Buck) Schiwetz, Otis Dozier, Michael Frary, Everett Spruce, Emily Guthrie Smith, Jerry Bywaters, and, among more recent additions, Dorothy Hood and Richard Stout. Through interviews with longtime staff and research into the Press’s book files and correspondence, William and Linda Reaves have uncovered the captivating history of this unlikely collection. In A Book Maker’s Art, they present the freshly assembled story of the Wardlaw collection, from its modest yet unique beginning to its present-day status as one of the university’s excellent collections of Texas art, reflecting the exceptional bond of arts and letters that has come to distinguish Texas A&M University Press.

At the fifth biennial David B. Warren Symposium, seven scholars examined contributions made by women to the material culture of nineteenthcentury Texas, the Lower South, and the Southwest. The resulting papers explore such diverse topics as women’s creative enterprises in Texas, their artistic contributions, as seen in the making of fine art, quilts, sunbonnets, and memorial hairwork pieces, and their role in adapting personal spaces such as an antebellum parlor and African American homes after the Civil War. In this volume, Mel Buchanan shares insights about the woman behind the furnishing of an important antebellum parlor. Whitney Stuart discusses Reconstruction-era African American material culture as expressed by women in their new free homes. Katherine Burlison reveals one woman’s impressive literary and artistic accomplishments in New Orleans. Katherine J. Adams provides interpretive analysis of quilts from Texas and the Lower South. The paper on sunbonnets by Rebecca Jumper Matheson provides a unique window into nineteenth-century Texas. The publication concludes with an essay by Lauren Clark focused on decorative memorial works woven of hair. 978-0-89090-189-2 paper $16.95 51�2x81�2. 140 pp. 115 color, 22 b&w photos. September

At the sixth biennial David B. Warren Symposium, five scholars examined the theme of change and continuity in nineteenth-century Texas, the Lower South, and the Southwest. The resulting papers are published in this volume. Extensively illustrated and footnoted, they contribute important new scholarship to the field of American material culture. Noted scholar Ken Hafertepe’s opening address uses the iconic paintings of immigrant artist Hermann Lungkwitz to provide an introduction and contacts for the conference’s premise of “traditions in transition.” Rowena Houghton Dasch builds her thesis on the changing face of Texas around the architecture of a nineteenth-century Austin landmark. Serena Newmark provides an intriguing international link to Texas material culture, proposing a connection between Central European furniture traditions and the objects made by immigrants from those areas to Texas. Bruce Shackelford offers another international connection in his paper, discussing the impact of the Hispanic tradition on ranching and cowboy culture in Texas. Jennifer Van Horn provides new insights into early Southern portraiture, focusing on the images of slaves, and reminding us that the symposium’s parameters extend beyond the Texas border. 978-0-89090-193-9 paper $16.95 51�2x81�2. 124 pp. 69 color, 31 b&w photos.

The holding of space for our youth to think, create, write out their truths, ensures a generation of empowered, well-articulated changemakers.

And in each of these poems, there is a call to others like them that none of us has to trek this journey alone.

San Antonio

A Tricentennial History Char Miller

This is the first general history of San Antonio, Texas, the seventh largest city in the nation. Its past is complex and ranges across 300 years, from the community’s origins as a tiny Spanish frontier town to its contemporary status as a vital American mega-city. Site of some of the most violent struggles between warring empires and people—historians believe San Antonio may be the most fought-over city in U.S. history—it is perhaps most celebrated for the iconic 1836 Battle of the Alamo. The city is also home to four beautifully restored Spanish missions, which in 2015 UNESCO designated a World Heritage Site and have become integral to San Antonio’s robust tourist economy along with the fabled River Walk. This study weaves together a series of environmental, social, political, and cultural pressures that have shaped life in the Alamo City over the last three centuries. Residents have long fought to protect and utilize water and other resources even as they have struggled to achieve equal rights and build a more open and democratic society. Activists from all sectors of this multicultural city have believed deeply in its promise even though they have had to push hard to secure and expand its potential. Their efforts were every bit as intense in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries as they have been in the twenty-first. Written for a general audience, but with a scholarly attention to detail and nuance, San Antonio: A Tricentennial History immerses readers in the city’s fascinating and fraught past.

Texas and World War I Gregory W. Ball

On November 11, 1918, what was then called “the Great War” ended. The consequences of four years of warfare in Europe reverberated throughout the world, leaving few places untouched. Even though it was far from the scenes of conflict, Texas was forever changed, as historian Gregory W. Ball details in Texas and World War I. This accessible history recounts the ways in which the war affected Texas and Texans politically, socially, and economically. Texas’s position on the United States border with Mexico and on the western edge of the American South profoundly influenced the ways in which the war affected the state, from fears of invasion from the across the Rio Grande—fears that put the state’s significant German American population under suspicion—to the racial tensions that flared when African American soldiers challenged Jim Crow. When thousands of Texas men were drafted into the U.S. Army and the federal government developed a host of training grounds and airfields (many close to the state’s burgeoning cities) in response to U.S. entry into the war, this heavily rural state that had long been outside the national mainstream was had become more “American” than ever before. Number Twenty-six: Fred Rider Cotten Popular History Series

The Art of Texas 250 Years

Ron Tyler More than a quarter of a century ago, critic and author Michael Ennis observed that “There is no comprehensive work on Texas art; there has never been an exhibition offering more than a cursory overview of Texas art from the nineteenth century to the present.” But appreciation for Texas art has undergone a genuine renaissance, with collectors, museums, and the public paying more attention to it than ever before. The Art of Texas: 250 Years tells this story, beginning with key Spanish colonial paintings related to Texas and moving through two and a half centuries of art in Texas. By the twentieth century, most Texas artists had received formal training and produced work in styles similar to European and other American artists. The aesthetic scene changed abruptly as the Great Depression swept across the country: A group of Dallas artists agreed with artist and museum director Jerry Bywaters that “the artist is unbent, willing to be a human worker and not a luxury vendor.” They introduced a gritty regionalism in their Texas subjects, while the artists of the Fort Worth Circle developed their own brand of surrealism, and Houston artists looked to Europe for inspiration. The relief that followed World War II brought a new exuberance to the Texas scene, for the first time a majorityurban state. Artists responded with modernist styles rather than the sweeping landscapes and farm scenes of previous generations.The Art of Texas: 250 Years accompanies an exhibition of the same title at the Witte Museum in San Antonio. Written by noted scholars, art historians, and curators, it is the first attempt to analyze and characterize Texas art on such a grand scale. RON TYLER is the retired director of the Amon Carter Museum of American Art in Fort Worth, Texas, and former professor of history and director of the Texas State Historical Association at the University of Texas at Austin. He was the editor-in-chief of The New Handbook of Texas (6 vols.; 1996 and now online) and the Southwestern Historical Quarterly. He has published a number of works in the areas of American, Western American, Texan, and Mexican art and history.

Talking to the Stars

Bobbie Wygant’s Seventy Years in Television Bobbie Wygant

In her memoir Talking to the Stars: Bobbie Wygant’s Seventy Years in Television, Bobbie Wygant recalls her trailblazing career as an arts and entertainment reporter for Dallas-Fort Worth’s Channel 5. Started in 1948 by Amon G. Carter, WBAP (now KXAS) was the first television station west of the Mississippi, and Wygant was there from the beginning. Like everyone on that early Channel 5 staff, Wygant pitched in to do a little of everything—writing copy, performing live on-air skits, presenting commercials—but she soon became known for the way she connected with celebrities. In a career spanning seven decades, Wygant has interviewed literally thousands of the most notable entertainers and celebrities since the 1950s—from Bob Hope, Jane Fonda, and Denzel Washington to Meryl Streep, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Matt Damon. Wygant was live on the air with her popular midday program Dateline on November 22, 1963, when news broke of JFK’s assassination. A few months later, during their debut tour of the US, she interviewed the Beatles. In addition to charming and often funny accounts of her interviews with the stars, Wygant’s personal observations of television broadcasting as it emerged at WBAP-TV offer fascinating insights into the infancy of today’s multi-billiondollar industry. This engaging and informative volume includes more than three hundred photographs of her favorite celebrity encounters. Emmy Award-winning television legend BOBBIE WYGANT began her groundbreaking seventy-year career at WBAP-TV in 1948, two weeks before the station went on the air. She is a founding member of the national Broadcast Film Critics Association and was honored by them with their “Critic’s Critic Award” in 2000. In 2004, Wygant was inducted into the elite Gold Circle of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for her fifty years of contributions to television broadcasting. In 2014 the Alliance for Women In Media honored her with their Gracie Award for Outstanding Reporter/ Correspondent. Today, Wygant works at NBC as a freelance reporter.

The Whole Damn Cheese Maggie Smith, Border Legend Bill Wright

The Women of Smeltertown

Marcia Hatfield Daudistel and Mimi Reisel Gladstein

Anecdotes about Maggie Smith abound, but Bill Wright’s The Whole Damn Cheese is the first book devoted entirely to the woman whose life in Big Bend country has become the stuff of legend. For more than twenty years—from 1943 until her death in 1965—Maggie Smith served folks on both sides of the border as doctor, lawyer, midwife, herbalist, banker, self-appointed justice of the peace, and coroner. As she put it, she was “the whole damn cheese” in Hot Springs, Texas. She was also an accomplished smuggler with a touch of romance as well as larceny in her heart.

Once there was a place called Smeltertown, and it was known as the largest industrial city on the banks of the Rio Grande. The smokestacks of the American Smelting and Refining Company, which polluted the air for three miles in every direction, grew so tall over the decades that they became a landmark just inside the El Paso side of the USMexico border. In a community of small adobe houses, many with dirt floors and without indoor plumbing, both the men employed at the smelter and the women who raised families and made homes there form the history of Smeltertown.

Maggie’s family history is virtually a history of the Texas frontier, and her story outlines the beginnings and early development of Big Bend National Park. Her travels between Boquillas, San Vicente, Alpine, and Hot Springs define Maggie’s career and illustrate her unique relationships with the people of the border. Capturing the rough individualism and warm character of Maggie Smith, author Bill Wright demonstrates why this remarkable frontier woman has become an indelible figure in the history of Texas.

Through interviews with the women and their now middle-aged children, the realities of everyday life in Smeltertown are revealed—as is the strength of the women who forged a community and preserved a culture in these primitive conditions. Current photographs of the interviewees and historical photographs of Smeltertown illustrate the history of an area not even native El Pasoans knew.

BILL WRIGHT has written or contributed to seven books, and his photographs appear in the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center of the University of Texas at Austin, and the Smithsonian Museum of American History in Washington, DC. 978-0-87565-704-2 paper $24.00 978-0-87565-707-3 ebook 6x9. 160 pp. 60 b&w photos.

Nashville Burning is set in three Aprils, those of 1967, ’68, and ’69, in Music City. In the first, after an event at Vanderbilt University featuring Martin Luther King, Stokely Carmichael, Allen Ginsberg, and Strom Thurmond, riots broke out in North Nashville, and that part of town burst into flame— as did self-satisfied notions about civil order and structure in Nashville and the South. The next April, after the assassination of Dr. King in Memphis, Nashville riots took place again, and fire claimed its function. Nashville Burning presents characters caught up in those events and that time— events ranging from the thoughtful and sincerely well-meaning to the truly felonious and certifiably insane. The novel is humorous, yet serious. Its fire is literal and emotional, and it is not to be stoked. GERALD DUFF won the award for the best book of fiction about Texas, Blue Sabine, from the Philosophical Society of Texas, the Cohen Prize for Fiction from Ploughshares Magazine, and the Silver Medal for fiction from the Independent Publishers Association.  His novel Playing Custer from TCU Press was named a finalist for the Spur Award for the best historical fiction of 2015.

The Phantom Vietnam War An F-4 Pilot’s Combat over Laos David R. Honodel

David R. “Buff ” Honodel was a cocky young man with an inflated self-image when he arrived in 1969 at his base in Udorn, Thailand. His war was not in Vietnam; it was a secret one in the skies of a neighboring country almost unknown in America, attacking the Ho Chi Minh Trail that fed soldiers and supplies from North Vietnam into the South. Stateside he learned the art of flying the F-4, but in combat, the bomb-loaded fighter handled differently, targets shot back, and people suffered. Inert training ordnance was replaced by lethal weapons. In the air, a routine day mission turned into an unexpected duel with a deadly adversary. Complacency during a long night mission escorting a gunship almost led to death. A best friend died just before New Year’s. A RF-4 crashed into the base late in Buff ’s tour of duty. The reader will experience Buff ’s war from the cockpit of a supersonic F-4D Phantom II, doing 5-G pullouts after dropping six 500-pound bombs on trucks hidden beneath triple jungle canopy. These were well defended by a skillful, elusive, determined enemy firing back with 37mm anti-aircraft fire and tracers in the sky. The man who left the States was a naíve, selfcentered young pilot. The man who came back 137 missions later was much different. Number Twelve: North Texas Military Biography and Memoir Series

Lieutenant Colonel DAVID R. “BUFF” HONODEL flew 4,400 hours in F-4, A-10, OV-10, and T-33 aircraft during his 22-year Air Force career. He served overseas in Korea and Germany, and flew two tours in the Vietnam War. His decorations include two Distinguished Flying Crosses, three Meritorious Service Medals, and nineteen Air Medals.

The Phantom Vietnam War will be the standard against which other memoirs are measured—Honodel is one hell of a good pilot and a great storyteller.”—Earl H. Tilford, author of Crosswinds: The Air Force in Vietnam

Flying with the Fifteenth Air Force A B-24 Pilot’s Missions from Italy during World War II

Tom Faulkner Edited by David L. Snead

In 1944 and 1945, Tom Faulkner was a B-24 pilot flying out of San Giovanni airfield in Italy as a member of the 15th Air Force of the U.S. Army Air Forces. Only 19 years old when he completed his 28th and last mission, Tom was one of the youngest bomber pilots to serve in the U.S. Army Air Forces during World War II. Between September 1944 and the end of February 1945, he flew against targets in Hungary, Germany, Italy, Austria, and Yugoslavia. On Tom’s last mission against the marshalling yards at Augsburg, Germany, his plane was severely damaged, and he had to fly to Switzerland where he and his crew were interned. The 15th Air Force generally has been overshadowed by works on the 8th Air Force based in England. Faulkner’s memoir helps fill an important void by providing a first-hand account of a pilot and his crew during the waning months of the war, as well as a description of his experiences before his military service. David L. Snead has edited the memoir and provided annotations and corroboration for the various missions.

Ben Thompson Portrait of a Gunfighter

Thomas C. Bicknell Chuck Parsons

Ben Thompson was a remarkable man, and few Texans can claim to have crowded more excitement, danger, drama, and tragedy into their lives than he did. He was an Indian fighter, Texas Ranger, Confederate cavalryman, mercenary for a foreign emperor, hired gun for a railroad, an elected lawman, professional gambler, and the victor of numerous gunfights. As a leading member of the Wild West’s sporting element, Ben Thompson spent most of his life moving in the unsavory underbelly of the West: saloons, dance-houses, billiard halls, bordellos, and gambling dens. During these travels many of the Wild West’s most famous icons—Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, Bat Masterson, Wild Bill Hickok, John Wesley Hardin, John Ringo, and Buffalo Bill Cody—became acquainted with Ben Thompson. Some of these men called him a friend; others considered him a deadly enemy. In life and in death no one ever doubted Ben Thompson’s courage; one Texas newspaperman asserted he was “perfectly fearless, a perfect lion in nature when aroused.” This willingness to trust his life to his expertise with a pistol placed Thompson prominently among the western frontier’s most flamboyant breed of men: gunfighters. Number Twenty: A.C. Greene Series

Old Riot, New Ranger

Captain Jack Dean, Texas Ranger and U.S. Marshal Bob Alexander

Award-winning author Bob Alexander presents a biography of 20th-century Ranger Captain Jack Dean, who holds the distinction of being one of only five men to serve in both the Officer’s Corps of the Rangers and also as a President-appointed United States Marshal. Jack Dean’s service in Texas Ranger history occurred at a time when the institution was undergoing a philosophical revamping and restructuring, all hastened by America’s Civil Rights Movement, landmark decisions handed down by the United States Supreme Court, zooming advances in forensic technology, and focused efforts designed to diversify and professionalize the Rangers. His job choice caused him to circulate in the duplicitous underworld of dishonesty and criminality where twisted selfinterest overrode compliance with societal norms. His biography is packed with true-crime calamities: double murders, single murders, negligent homicides, suicides, jailbreaks, manhunts, armed robberies and home invasions, kidnappings, public corruption, sexual assaults, illicit gambling, car-theft rings, dope smuggling, and arms trafficking. Number Seventeen: Frances B. Vick Series

BOB ALEXANDER is the co-author of Texas Rangers and author of Rawhide Ranger, Ira Aten; Whiskey River Ranger; Six-Shooters and Shifting Sands; Bad Company and Burnt Powder; Riding Lucifer’s Line; and Winchester Warriors, all published by UNT Press. He lives in Maypearl, Texas.

Quantum Convention Eric Schlich

Quantum Convention’s eight genre-bending stories balance precariously between reality and fantasy, the suburban and the magical, the quotidian and the strange. Caught at a crossroads in his marriage, a high school teacher attends a parallel universe convention, where he meets his multiple selves and explores the alternate paths of life’s what-ifs. The story of Margaret Hamilton, the actress who played the Wicked Witch of the West, parallels the coming of age of a crossdressing boy whose crisis of identity is tied to The Wizard of Oz. Other stories feature characters labeled as “outcasts” by society— whether physically, morally, or fantastically: an alcoholic lucid dreamer, a closeted bisexual, a bachelor time-epileptic, orphansturned-keeners, a vengeful banshee, a nerdy cyclops, and more. Many struggle to find what Dorothy and her entourage searched for: the wisdom to trust or discount their faith; the ability of the emotionally detached to love; the courage to speak up for oneself; a place to belong.

War in East Texas Regulators vs. Moderators Bill O’Neal

Established in Waco in 1968, the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum honors the iconic Texas Rangers, a service that has existed, in one form or another, since 1823. They have become legendary symbols of Texas and the American West. In The Ranger Ideal Volume 2: Texas Rangers in the Hall of Fame, 1874-1930, Darren L. Ivey presents the twelve inductees who served Texas in the latter half of the nineteenth century. Ivey begins with John B. Jones, who directed his Rangers from state troops to professional lawmen; then covers Leander H. McNelly, John B. Armstrong, James B. Gillett, Jesse Lee Hall, George W. Baylor, Bryan Marsh, and Ira Aten—the men who were responsible for some of the Rangers’ most legendary feats. Ivey concludes with James A. Brooks, William J. McDonald, John R. Hughes, and John H. Rogers, the “Four Great Captains” who guided the Texas Rangers into the twentieth century. The Ranger Ideal presents the true stories of these intrepid men who fought to tame a land with gallantry, grit, and guns. DARREN L. IVEY is an independent researcher who lives in Manhattan, Kansas. He is the author of The Ranger Ideal Volume 1: Texas Rangers in the Hall of Fame, 1823-1861 (UNT Press 2017) and The Texas Rangers: A Registry and History. 978-1-57441-733-3 cloth $45.00 978-1-57441-744-9 ebook 6x9. 816 pp. 48 b&w illus. 2 maps.

From 1840 through 1844 East Texas was wracked by murderous violence between Regulator and Moderator factions. More than thirty men were killed in assassinations, lynchings, ambushes, street fights, and pitched battles. The sheriff of Harrison County was murdered, and so was the founder of Marshall, as well as a former district judge. Senator Robert Potter, a signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence, was slain by Regulators near his Caddo Lake home. Courts ceased to operate and anarchy reigned in Shelby County, Panola District, and Harrison County. Only the personal intervention of President Sam Houston and an invasion of the militia of the Republic of Texas halted the bloodletting. The Regulator-Moderator War was the first and largest of the many blood feuds of Texas. Bill O’Neal includes rosters of names of the Regulator and Moderator factions arranged by the counties in which the individuals were associated, along with a roster of the victims of the war. BILL O’NEAL is State Historian of Texas and the author of more than thirty books, including The Johnson-Sims Feud,The Johnson County War (2005 NOLA Book of the Year), Historic Ranches of the Old West, Encyclopedia of Western Gunfighters, and Cheyenne, 1867-1903.

You Shook Me All Campaign Long Music in the 2016 Presidential Election and Beyond

The San Saba Treasure

Legends of Silver Creek David C. Lewis

Edited by Eric T. Kasper and Benjamin S. Schoening

Music has long played a role in American presidential campaigns as a mode of both expressing candidates’ messages and criticizing the opposition. The 2016 campaign was no exception and was a game changer similar to the development of music in the 1840 campaign, when “Tippecanoe and Tyler Too” helped sing William Harrison into the White House. The ten chapters in this collection place music use in 2016 in historical perspective before examining musical messaging, strategy, and parody. The book ultimately explores causality: how do music and musicians affect presidential elections, and how do politicians and campaigns affect music and musicians? The authors explain this interaction from various perspectives, with methodological approaches from several fields, including political science, legal studies, musicology, cultural studies, rhetorical studies, and communications and journalism. These chapters will help the reader understand music in the 2016 election to realize how music will be relevant in 2020 and beyond.

In 1868, four treasure hunters from San Marcos, Texas, searched for a lost mine on the San Saba River, near today’s Menard. It was popularized as folklore in J. Frank Dobie’s treasure legend classic Coronado’s Children. One hundred and fifty years later, a descendant of one of those four men set out to discover the history behind the legend. This book recounts that search, from the founding of the ill-fated 1757 mission on the San Saba River up to the last attempt, in 1990, to find the treasure in this particular legend. It describes Jim Bowie, a fake treasure map industry, murder trials, a rattlesnake dancer, fortunes lost, a very long Texas cave, and surprising twists to the story popularized by Dobie. The book will not lead anyone to the legendary tenthousand pounds of silver, but it will open a treasure trove of Texas history and the unique characters who hunted the fabulous riches.

Van Straten traveled extensively and interacted with military officers and noncommissioned officers, peasant-class farmers, Buddhist bonzes, shopkeepers, scribes, physicians, nurses, the mentally ill, and even political operatives. He sent his wife daily letters from July 1966 through June 1967, describing in impressive detail his experiences, and those letters became the primary source for his memoir. “This book is gold. . . . The reader can easily apply the observations from 50 years ago to very similar circumstances today.”—The AMEDD Historian Number Eight: North Texas Military Biography and Memoir Series

After his thirty-year military career ended in 1986, JAMES G. VAN STRATEN moved into academia. In 1990 he was appointed dean of the School of Allied Health Sciences at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. He and his spouse now reside in Windcrest, Texas. 978-1-57441-738-8 paper 24.95 978-1-57441-621-3 ebook 6x9. 528 pp. 35 b&w illus. Map. Notes. Bib. Index. Vietnam War. Memoir. Medical Humanities.

Principles and Practices for Effective Advocacy

Two outstanding Texas trial lawyers—one now a respected state district judge—have written On the Jury Trial, a “must have” reference for any trial lawyer aspiring to continued excellence. Chapter topics include voir dire, opening statement, preparing witnesses, cross examination, using exhibits, closing argument, jury research, and more. Excellent examples and “do’s and don’ts” are provided throughout. “On the Jury Trial combines basic structural instruction and personal analysis by those who have been in the trenches and reads like a kind of fireside chat with two highly experienced trial attorneys imparting their unique insights into trial scenarios. . . . [It] offers concrete, helpful and insightful advice to both young and experienced trial lawyers alike on how to effectively, efficiently and passionately represent their clients before a jury.”—Law360 THOMAS M. MELSHEIMER has been named “Trial Lawyer of the Year” by the Texas Chapters of the American Board of Trial Advocates and by the Dallas Bar Association. He is the managing partner at Winston & Strawn in Dallas. Before being elected to the 192nd District Court JUDGE CRAIG SMITH was an accomplished Texas trial lawyer for more than twentyfive years. As a judge, he was recognized as Trial Judge of the Year by the Dallas Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates. 978-1-57441-737-1 paper $16.95s 978-1-57441-709-8 ebook 6x9. 288 pp. 17 b&w illus.

Haj Ross is an almost completely unpublished poet, and a completely amateur artist. However, since around 1970, when he discovered blending colors with artist markers, he has done more painting than poeming. In this book, he has tried to let these two of his art forms talk to, and look like, each other. HAJ ROSS is interested in poetics ‘and’ semantax—he does not see the sense in trying to keep them separate. He teaches in the Department of Linguistics in the College of Information at the University of North Texas.

Lust for Glory

An Epic Tale of Early Texas and the Sacrifice That Defined a Nation Stephen L. Hardin

Lust for Glory An Epic Story of Early Texas and the Sacrifice That Defined a Nation

Lust for Glory: An Epic Story of Early Texas and the Sacrifice That Defined a Nation is a concise, reader friendly depiction of the “Heroic Age” of Texas history. Employing short, episodic chapters, it explores the twenty-five years between 1821 and 1846. Certainly one of the most eventful eras, it included Mexican independence, Anglo-American settlement, the “Come-andTake-It fight, battle of the Alamo, Goliad Massacre, victory at San Jacinto, and the decade of the Texas Republic that culminated in statehood. Extraordinary figures like Stephen F. Austin, William Barret Travis, Sam Houston, and his long-suffering wife, Margaret, come alive on the page. Although Dr. Hardin’s narrative reads like a contemporary page turner, all is carefully documented. Skillfully conceived and masterfully written, Lust for Glory flows with a style as passionate and exuberant as the place and the people it describes. STEPHEN L. HARDIN has been a historical consultant on several motion pictures including the 2004 production of The Alamo. His book Texian Iliad won the T.R. Fehrenbach Book Award and the Summerfield G. Roberts Award. He is professor of history at McMurry University, Abilene, Texas.

Stanley Marcus

The Relentless Reign of a Merchant Prince Thomas E. Alexander

Stanley Marcus was undeniably America’s Merchant Prince. He created his own legend by becoming a fashion authority without parallel, an unerring arbiter of taste, a marketing genius, and a ham-like showman in the mold of Phineas T. Barnum. His unique talents transformed Neiman Marcus from a Dallas specialty store into a glittering internationally-known and respected retail institution. Thomas E. Alexander traces the history of the company, tells the colorful life story of “Mr. Stanley,” and shares his personal behindthe-scenes memoir of his sometimes tumultuous association with the man and the store. Humorous anecdotes clearly illustrate that there was much more to Stanley Marcus than was ever seen by the public eye. Photographs of celebrities such as Princess Grace of Monaco, Sophia Loren, John Wayne, Brigitte Bardot, and Queen Sirkit of Thailand serve to emphasize the world-wide appeal of Neiman Marcus and the man behind it all for over fifty years.

Blindsided

Chelsea Catherine Blindsided follows Eli as she leads Carla, a local real estate agent, through an election for Key West city mayor. At first, the campaign process appears easy. Despite their differences, the two women work well together. But as time progresses, they face countless obstacles: the Bubba system in the Keys, discrimination from both supporting and opposing forces, and their rapidly intensifying relationship. While Carla starts to doubt her decisions, Eli struggles to find her place in the Keys and in Carla’s budding campaign. CHELSEA CATHERINE is a queer writer and native Vermonter. She worked for three months in Central and South America as a teenager where she learned how to speak Spanish and how to make chocolate. After graduating with an MFA, she spent two years in Key West. There, she became a PEN Short Story Prize Nominee, a winner of the Raymond Carver Fiction contest, a Sterling Watson fellow, and an Ann McKee grant recipient. She has been writing since she was eight years old.

The story is ‘sticky,’ in a sense, forcing itself onto the reader in the same way the heat and humidity of the Keys forces itself onto people there. It’s generic, in that sense, and as a result, genuine. As the writer says, at one point, beneath the glitz and touristy appeal and staged beauty of the Keys, there’s a rottenness, something that fundamentally stinks. This novel proves that out. I found myself thinking about it long after finishing it, and I felt the characters were compelling, although not particularly likeable and believable, although not particularly redeemable.”—Clay Reynolds

Pitchman’s Blues Jim Kelly

This short story collection offers snapshots of a life. A kid is set up by an old uncle to think he’s going to be scalped. Seeing demons in every shadow a few nights later, he’s told by an older cousin it was all a joke, that adults always seem to want kids to go through the same bad things they did. Just how they are. Shut up, he’s advised. Get used to it. Hunkered in the dark listening. In the next room, bubbling a bottle with a drinking buddy, his Old Man telling tales of roadhouse glory. Bad odds fist fights, rearranged faces that stay that way. For weeks he wakes afraid to touch his face. Will his nose, ears and eyes have shifted places while he slept, his face forever scrambled, rearranged? Riots and war. Conscription. The fights, the violence no longer just yarns heard late at night. Drafted at eighteen, he has to decide, will he go halfway round the world to kill people he has no earthly quarrel with? Considers conscientious objection. His girlfriend bluntly asks him when he became a pacifist. You can’t, she suggests, the minute you get drafted, suddenly announce yourself as some kind of Instant Gandhi. Not, anyway, and expect a Draft Board made up of World War II vets to buy it. Teaching in a tiny mountain town. Some kids, he’s told early on, are just too dumb to bother with. Signing on for a salesman’s pay. Hit your quota or hit the road. Logic of a kiss, that sprung free promise of what life can be, the one constant throughout. A better way glimpsed, lost and found, here and gone. Pitchman’s blues. A retired traveling salesman, JIM KELLY has been writing for over forty years. His work has appeared in The Coachella Review, Switchback, Chicago Quarterly Review, War Literature & the Arts and Harvard Review.

From the winner of The Faulkner Society’s Gold Award . . .

The Coolest Monsters Megan Baxter

The pieces in this collection range in setting from the small towns of New England to the deserts of the Southwest. Grounded in personal experience these essays ask through narrative what it means to be a rebel girl, a rebel teenager, and a rebel woman in a world that seems to offer no real alternative to traditional roles. Infused with lyrical and figurative language, this collection combines the swiftness of the prose poem with the power of the personal essay resulting in writing that pulls the ground out from under the reader again and again. The collection is organized chronologically in a way that charts the development of a woman as she attempts to adapt to the world around her through stories of love, heartbreak, and adventure. The essays travel with the narrator from a summer camp in Maine, to opal mining in Nevada, to the story of a deadly thunderstorm in Vermont, to hunting for ginseng, asking the questions about belonging, expectation and, ultimately, if there is a chance for real happiness. MEGAN BAXTER holds an MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts in creative nonfiction. Her essays have won numerous awards including The Faulkner Society’s Gold Award and have been published in such journals as The Open Bar at Tinhouse, TheTishman Review, and Carte Blanche. She currently lives in Greenville, South Carolina with her fiancé and their three beloved dogs.

The lyricism of the whole collection is its sustaining quality. The writer here knows her craft; she adroitly avoids cliché and is original throughout. There are no banalities or purple prose here. It seems fresh and original.”—Clay Reynolds

Murawski is a master of consummate poetic craft, as comfortable in handling the rigors of formal poetry as she is the subtle demands of distinguished free verse. The poems of this remarkable collection sparkle with biblical and musical allusion, and timely references to a litany of literary and historical personages: from Chekhov to Cromwell; Hamlet to Mahler; and Sappho to Keats.  “A brave poet undaunted by the darker realities of experience, Murawski probes, with haunting insight and emotional honesty, the somber hues of a home bereft of love; an unwanted child; a sister crippled at birth; childhood and relationship abuse; and the insatiable yearning lurking at the core of universal human existence”.—Larry D.

One Light is a book about a Georgia mother and a daughter who must each take a turn at caregiving. In the first half of the book, the daughter tells of surviving near-fatal burns at age fourteen, and describes with stark straightforwardness the healing process, during which her mother serves as one of her primary caregivers. In Part II, where both voices are alternately and jointly heard, the daughter moves reluctantly into the role of caregiver as her mother travels dementia’s haunting paths. Their shared love of singing and a stubborn tenacity serve as thematic threads.

Flying South on the Back of a Dove

Enforced Rustication

In the Chinese Cultural Revolution

Kelly Rowe

In Flying South on the Back of a Dove, Kelly Rowe writes of loss: loss of life, of innocence, of love. She explores how our losses weigh on us, and how we shoulder and carry them through our lives. These poems are also about return: to a South that is the landscape of childhood, an Eden that exists only in memory and in dreams. Describing an arc from childhood to middle age, the poems confront the brutality of everyday existence, from suicide to domestic violence to murder, but also celebrate how we reach for hope, so elusive and so necessary. The Traveling Salesman’s Wife On Mondays you drive off to your other life; I lie in bed and wonder if you have another wife, in Pearson, or Baxley, or Florida somewhere, waiting up as I do, Wednesday and Friday nights . . . KELLY ROWE was born in North Carolina, and lived for many years in the American South. She received her MFA degree in English from the University of Iowa, and her JD from Emory University, in Atlanta, Georgia. She now lives, writes and occasionally practices law in Flagstaff, Arizona. Her poems have appeared in journals including the Iowa Review, the Virginia Quarterly Review, the North American Review, and most recently, the Southern Poetry Review and the Pittsburgh Poetry Review. 978-1-68003-170-6 paper $15.95 978-1-68003-171-3 ebook 6x9. 48 pp. Poetry.

Jianqing Zheng

During China’s Cultural Revolution, millions of middle school and high school graduates, called zhiqing, were sent to the countryside to receive reeducation from peasants. They dug the earth daily, with deep conviction that they would play an important role in the transformation of rural China. Jianqing Zheng’s rusticated years were central to his poetic imagination in this collection. “The poems in this collection reveal a complex narrative of China’s Cultural Revolution and its Sent-Down-Youth. While each poem stands alone—graced with stunning descriptions (“At fish-belly dawn”), images (“hands fluttering / like butterflies on cotton fluffs”), and all too human struggles (“I am tired of being tired; / of being told what to do”)—together they tell of a larger history.” —Rita Costello JIANQING ZHENG is author of The Landscape of Mind (Slapering Hol Press) and editor of African American Haiku: Cultural Visions (University Press of Mississippi).

Ninth Edition

Barrio Writers 9th Edition brings an impressive breadth and depth of emotion and cultural insights which can’t be overstated. These readings are extraordinary because, together, the prose and poetry collected here by these bright young writers capture, almost all at once, what their lives are truly about, how their lives have been challenged, and yet, most importantly, how these youth almost always manage to triumph, through the very act of writing. The tough insights into their lives these writings bring come to us because of the profound understanding these youth have of how fragile their lives can be when the environments surrounding them fail to protect them and those they love. Interspersed throughout this volume are valuable writing prompts other young writers like those collected here can use to develop their own literacy and literary skills. Barrio Writers 9th Edition delivers powerful and exemplary poetic and prosaic testaments which should inspire others to tell of their lives in as impressive a style as found in this new volume—impressive because of their daring to write their way onto triumphant higher ground without ever leaving behind their cultural homes.

North of the Platte, South of the Niobrara

Saving the Oldest Town in Texas Linda Thorsen Bond

A Little Further into the Nebraska Sand Hills Bryan Jones

Filled with adventurous writing, sharp scrutiny, meticulous and audacious use of language, North of the Platte, South of the Niobrara: A Little Further into the Nebraska Sand Hills winds around its subjects the way the rivers and creeks of the Great Plains twist around humps of prairie grass, ranches and rock outcroppings.  The ambitious goal of author Bryan Jones was to create a fresh understanding of the Nebraska Sand Hills from the inside. Surely he has done that, and more. He reflects with almost unbearable poignancy on war and its consequences, and with fierce advocacy on two beloved Nebraska poets. He brings humor and occasional cynicism to reflections about “the metaphysical and metaphorical aspects” of the Sand Hills, Ted Turner and other newcomers, the Sandoz family and other old-timers and a considerable chunk of Western history. BRYAN JONES received his BA from Roosevelt University in Chicago and attended graduate school at the University of New Orleans, University of Nebraska at Kearney and Middlebury Breadloaf School of English. He previously published The Farming Game, Mark Twain Made Me Do It & Other Plains Adventures, and his work was reprinted in the nonfiction anthology.

When Col. Benjamin Wettermark emptied the bank and skipped town in 1903, he left his wife, his children and his mansion behind. Saving the Oldest Town in Texas looks at the banker, the house designed by the best architect in Nacogdoches and the impact Col. Wettermark’s betrayal had on the woman who loved him and the town that trusted him. Over a hundred years later, Peggy Jensen wonders if she is brave enough to renovate a home that seems too far gone. She could almost say the same thing about herself. She is alone, stiffening up in all her joints, at loose ends after seven years watching her husband’s brilliant mind deteriorate. Her daughter talked her into moving to the Oldest Town in Texas, and Peggy wants to renovate a historic home. It is just her luck to fall in love with a deteriorating scandal-ridden mansion. The chapters alternate between the current day struggle to renovate the mansion and the turn-ofthe century story of Col. Wettermark, his wife Daisy and his children. Peggy’s first friend is a born-inNacogdoches research librarian who discovers, literally, where the bodies are buried. LINDA THORSEN BOND lived for several years in Nacogdoches, Texas, where she taught at Stephen F. Austin State University.

On Distance

You Never Know

Alexander Long

Chris Anderson You Never Know

Chris Anderson poetry

On Distance is Alexander Long’s fourth full-length collection of poems. Long’s poems are riveting and bring up questions regarding humanity. The collection itself is divided into four distinct sections that each deal with their own humanitarian concern: returning home and the nostalgia that finds you; the downfall and heartbreak of humanity; hard, unspoken questions about society; and the wake of heartbreak left behind by the suicide of a close friend. Despite this raw subject matter, Long manages to leave his readers with a hope that lingers like a flicker in the shadows. ALEXANDER LONG has previously published three full-length collections of poetry: Still Life, Light Here, Light There, and Vigil. He has had considerable success in publishing poems in various literary journals for the last twenty years. 978-1-62288-221-2 paper $18.00 6x9. 120 pp. Poetry. September

Chris Anderson’s You Never Know is an accessible down-to-earth collection of poetry. Catholic, Christian, and “Spiritual But Not Religious” readers will find humor and breathtaking prose in these poems set primarily in the Pacific Northwest. Juxtaposing experience and intuition, Anderson challenges readers to find connections in the elusive and inexplicable. The surprising presence of God, or the Mystery, or Something Other, lingers in our memory and our longing and our everyday lives. “We never know” in the sense that this is all a mystery, beyond us; and yet “we never know” in the sense that life is full of surprises, and wonderful surprises. We have to see them. Remember them. And poetic language, the language of image, gets us closer to this wordlessness, and this joy, and this sorrow, than anything else. CHRIS ANDERSON is a professor of English at Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon, and a Catholic deacon. He grew up in Spokane, Washington, and has published a number of books, most recently, Light When It Comes: Trusting Joy, Facing Darkness, and Seeing God in Everything (Eerdmans, 2016). He and his wife, Barb, live on the edge of the university research forest north of Corvallis with their two dogs, Pip and Shy. 978-1-62288-209-0 paper $18.00 6x9. 96 pp. Poetry. September

Hillary, Made Up

Marvelous Light

Marianne Kunkel

The notion that women can have it all—powerful careers and physical beauty—is a myth. Hillary, MadeUp provides an insightful view to this from the perspective of beauty products in an ode to Hillary Clinton. The beauty rituals that half of Americans take part in has never seen much poetry, but Marianne Kunkel delves into just that. Hillary, Made Up brings to light the unfair standards to which Americans hold successful women, and shows Hillary Clinton’s political career from its beginning in the 1970s to her run in the presidential campaign. The collection tells this story through the lens of sexism, allowing readers to see the role that gender discrimination played in Hillary Clinton’s ultimate loss to President Trump. MARIANNE KUNKEL is the author of The Laughing Game (Finishing Line Press) and holds an MFA in poetry from the University of Florida and a PhD in English from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. She is an assistant professor of Creative Writing and Publishing at Missouri Western State University and the editor-in-chief of The Mochila Review. 978-1-62288-210-6 paper $18.00 51/2x81/2. 80 pp. Poetry.

Claude Wilkinson

Similar to Antonio Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, poems that compose the sections of Claude Wilkinson’s Marvelous Light explore nature’s cycles with respect to their parallels of, and import to, our human lives. Il cimento dell’armonia e dell’inventione, or The Contest between Harmony and Invention, a title under which Vivaldi’s work was first published, suggests part of an overarching theme that is implicit within Wilkinson’s collection—that is to say, his poems strive for a balance of euphony and the revelation of artistic rigor. Epigraphs from 1 Peter 2:9 and Henry James’s “The Middle Years” serve to enlighten readers as they read the poems that also image divinity’s role in the creative process. CLAUDE WILKINSON is a graduate of the universities of Mississippi and Memphis respectively. Over the years his poems have appeared in numerous journals and anthologies, including Atlanta Review, The Oxford American, and The Southern Review.  His collection, Reading the Earth, won the Naomi Long Madgett Poetry Award. He has been selected for inclusion in Who’s Who in the South and Southwest, Who’s Who in America and Who’s Who in the World.  In addition to private collections, his work is also in the permanent collections of Cottonlandia Museum. 978-1-62288-220-5 paper $18.00 6x9. 98 pp. Poetry.

Cloud Memoir

ReWriting the Body Wyatt Townley

Selected Longer Poems 1987–2017 Christopher Buckley

Cloud Memoir is a collection of Christopher Buckley’s longer poems, his most wide-ranging and serious work built with a symphonic structure—theme, variation, recapitulation trilled with speculative formations, its this/but that, its faith-and-doubt. Rarely did/do the grey cells and the music of experience organize themselves into quick dramatic or pithy movements. These beautifully structured longer poems provide both the metaphysical and putative room to move.

The body is a poem we are writing with every breath, says Townley, who in her dual life has taught yoga for decades. Albert Goldbarth calls Rewriting the Body “affectingly emotional even as it’s formally risky in a very smart way.” Helen Houghton of the Academy says, “I don’t know of anything else like this—a profound meditation, exhilarating to read, extraordinarily beautiful.” H. L. Hix says, “Her poems don’t feel written on the reader’s body, they feel written within it.”

Tomorrow, no doubt, more of us will come from the Midwest for favorable exchange rates, the ruins and the partial restorations of romance; we’ll believe without question and so run no risk from the church. But there’s a new inquisition here, sectarian as the old—it takes us away from lunch under bright umbrellas and unsettles conversation over drinks along the Via Veneto; this red brigade would kneecap half the glove to get their way. So maybe it’s as you say— after all there is no real evidence

Waking to the Dream

Hewn

Heather Angier

Heidi Hermanson

In a love letter to the Midwest, Heidi Elaine Hermanson writes of discovery, heartbreak, and redemption in the natural accumulation of her life as a poet. Inspired by a sense of longing for whatever comes next and for wherever life may take us, Waking to the Dream takes readers on a roadtrip (figuratively and literally). Inspired heavily by the relationships we create together and rooted in imagery of place, Hermanson gives readers a sense of home in the search. Excerpt: The Lure Of Orange Because you can stay mum, my love, I will show you a secret, here behind the hill. Bring a rope. Bring a bottle of foreboding, a flashlight, a blindfold. Bring a gun. Everything vanishes by tomorrow. There are long shadows in the nearby valley. HEIDI HERMANSON earned her MFA in Writing from the University of Nebraska Omaha (Summer, 2008). Her poems have been published in Midwest Quarterly, Hiram Poetry Review, and PlainSpoke. In 2010 she won the Omaha Public Library’s annual poetry contest and performed her winning work, Memento Mori, accompanied by Silver Roots, a New York-based violin and flute duo. She has read at the John H. Milton Conference in Vermillion, SD, on the Kerry Pedestrian Bridge over the Missouri, at the Bowery Poetry Club in New York City, and at the Roebuck Pub in England. 978-1-62288-213-7 paper $18.00 6x9. 80 pp. Poetry. October

Infused with intimacy, Hewn pieces together a life in Northern California: a girl with scoliosis raised in a small ranger’s house on the top of Mount Tamalpais, becoming a wife and mother in Oakland, and her family, five generations deep, settling in the Central Valley. Crossing time and experience, Hewn spotlights ordinary women, their undervalued caregiving and unpaid work shouldered across generations, suddenly illuminated.  Navigating readers through the darker corners of deformity, relationships, nature and place, Heather Angier crafts spare, image rich poems that are accessible, innovative and immediate.  Based on personal experiences, fairytales and family stories passed down, Hewn attests: the public can gain only with reference to the private. Born and raised in Northern California, HEATHER ANGIER is currently pursuing happiness as an ordinary mother who steals spare moments to read, write, and publish poetry. She has a Master of Fine Arts in English and Creative Writing from Mills College. This is her first full-length book. 978-1-62288-219-9 paper $18.00 5x8. 78 pp. Poetry. September

Hope and River

Emily Morris Taravella

For 50 years, Eleanor Ritter’s mother Rose has refused to talk about how she survived the Holocaust in Poland and ended up in New Jersey. But now—just as Rose breaks her hip and starts speaking in long-forgotten Polish—Eleanor learns that the parents of her nineyear-old son’s new friend are Polish Catholics, born and raised in that country. Eleanor starts digging into both families’ stories, jeopardizing her already shaky relationships with her mother, her husband, and her children, even as her obsession pushes her to confront the existential questions of American Jews—indeed, of any group that has faced historical persecution:  How many generations does guilt carry on? What did your grandparents do to my grandparents?

River is an Australian Shepherd who has had three different homes. He is sad and lonely, and he doesn’t feel he has a purpose . . . until he meets Hope. She convinces him that he can make a difference. Hope and River is a story for children and animal lovers of all ages.

FRAN HAWTHORN has spent more than three decades writing award-winning nonfiction, including eight books, mainly about consumer activism and business social responsibility. Her book Ethical Chic: The Inside Story of the Companies We Think We Love (Beacon Press) was named one of the best books of 2012 by Library Journal. In addition, she’s been an editor and writer (staff and freelance) at BusinessWeek, Fortune, The New York Times, Newsday, and other newspapers and magazines,and she reviews fiction for The New York Journal of Books. The Heirs is her debut novel.
