Preparing for Pandemics in the Modern World

Edited by Christine Crudo Blackburn The Black Death. Cholera. Spanish flu. Swine flu. HIV/AIDS. COVID-19/SARS-CoV-2. Each of these pandemics has made (or, is making) a lasting impact on humanity. From the immediate mental image of the beaked masks worn in the Middle Ages (bubonic plague) and the birth of epidemiology (cholera) to recognizing the benefits of social distancing (1918 flu) and the harm of prejudice and misinformation (HIV/AIDS), pandemics have shown us how to survive infectious disease, as long as we heed their lessons. Preparing for Pandemics in the Modern World, edited by Christine Crudo Blackburn, brings together experts on pandemic preparedness and biosecurity to explore areas of weakness in pandemic prevention, preparedness, detection, and response. Even as COVID-19 makes its way around the world, leaders and policymakers are tasked with thinking ahead and preparing to effectively respond to the next such event—which experience shows us to be a matter of “when,” not “if.” Inside, chapters are divided into sections on the lessons learned from the 1918 influenza pandemic, the application of the One Health concept, and the role of the private sector in responding to potentially devastating disease outbreaks. A chapter on the impacts of supply chain disruption—in light of COVID-19—and an epilogue that discusses the current outbreak make Preparing for Pandemics in the Modern World a timely and accessibly written compilation on pandemic prevention, preparedness, detection, and response. CHRISTINE CRUDO BLACKBURN is deputy director of the Pandemic and Biosecurity Policy Program at the Scowcroft Institute for International Affairs in the Bush School of Government and Public Service and teaches in the Department of Health Promotion and Community Health Sciences at the Texas A&M University School for Public Health.

“Hay las sierras debajo los llanos . . . There are mountains below the plains.”

Amarillo Flights

Aerial Views of Llano Estacado Country Paul V. Chaplo Introduction by Walt Davis

Visitors to Texas and New Mexico have marveled for centuries at the immensity of the Llano Estacado and the surprising contrast as, at the edges of the great mesa, the flat ground gives way suddenly to such spectacular formations as the Palo Duro and Caprock Canyons. In the introduction to Amarillo Flights, artist and naturalist Walt Davis chronicles the history of this region—what Paul Chaplo calls the “Llano Country”—and of those artists, mapmakers, and travelers who have tried in various ways to capture its spirit. Working in “the vast studio of the sky,” aerial photographer Chaplo has battled high winds, turbulence, dust, ice, near-miss bird strikes, wildfire smoke, and a host of aircraft problems to show the Llano Country from a place most of us will never be. Covering more than forty thousand square miles, he explores the incredible beauty and rich cultural history of the Panhandle and the surrounding landscapes, from canyons in New Mexico and Texas to hills and plains in Oklahoma. With the help of daring pilots, numerous aircraft, and a remarkably steady hand, Chaplo manages to capture in more than 100 striking photographs the shapes, textures, and colors of the rugged landforms that cannot be perceived fully from the ground. Sharing in his unique view from the southwestern sky, readers will experience from afar—and sometimes impossibly close— the sunlit canyons, storm-covered plains, and winding rivers cutting deep into the red earth that drew Chaplo to this region. For those who appreciate the Llano Estacado, Texas and Eastern New Mexico history, and landscape photography, this book provides a fresh and perception-challenging perspective.

Inside the US Secret Service with one of the first five female agents . . .

Scared Fearless

An Unlikely Agent in the US Secret Service Kathryn Clark Childers With Deborah Perry

The era: the 1970s. The location: an airplane en route to Washington, DC. Kathryn Clark Childers chats with a fellow passenger. “Are you visiting?” her seatmate asked. “No, I work there,” Childers said, pointing out the window to the White House, which had just come into view. “I’m a Secret Service agent.” “Really? I didn’t know they let girls pull that duty. I’m not really sure what you do.” “It’s a secret.” Recruited to the Secret Service as one of its first five female agents, Childers would surprise many people, including herself. Her duties included undercover work, protective details for Jacqueline Kennedy and her children, and attending state dinners where she met world leaders, including Prince Juan Carlos of Spain. In addition, she had to figure out how to disguise the .357 Magnum revolver that she carried at all times, whether wearing jogging clothes, a business suit, or an evening gown. It was 1970, and the Secret Service, like most public and private organizations, struggled—sometimes unsuccessfully—with the challenges of incorporating a rising tide of women into government service and other professional workplaces. Written in a lighthearted but highly informative style, Scared Fearless details the obstacles and the joys, the moments of high adventure, and the laughable fashion dilemmas that were part of Childers’s groundbreaking role. Through everything that happened, Childers says, she followed her father’s admonition: “Just do it scared.” Pioneering Women: Women Who Blazed Trails and Women Who Lead Sponsored by the Institute for Women’s Leadership at Texas Woman’s University

KATHRYN CLARK CHILDERS was one of the first five women hired by the US Secret Service in 1970. Since leaving the Service and moving to the Corpus Christi area in 1973, she has been a television producer, broadcaster, and talk show host. A professional speaker, she has been a featured presenter for organizations nationwide.

They helped each other create art . . . and come to terms with life.

Painted Flowers Shouldn’t Talk Back The Houston Garden Artists in the Seventies Margaret Killinger

Painted Flowers Shouldn’t Talk Back tells the story of a suburban women’s art collective that painted together in Houston, Texas, from 1970 to 1977. They called themselves the Garden Artists, though their subjects were much more varied than just garden views. Author Margaret Killinger’s artful narrative illustrates how these women creatively confronted profound sociocultural challenges through decorative art. Some discovered much-needed financial independence and personal freedom through the group; others, camaraderie and gratification outside home and marriage. Still others found a welcome reprieve from the demands of motherhood, the confines of suburban conformity, or the sinking weight of grief. They collectively learned to confront stark walls and to determine what they could and could not live with, all the while enjoying art and each other. Framed by Killinger’s 2008 group interview conducted in Houston, the story moves via memories and other interviews to El Paso, Austin, San Antonio, Santa Fe, and New Orleans. The women’s story is furthermore told under the shadow of Killinger’s own search for answers. She began exploring the women’s lives after the sudden, quiet death of her mother, a portrait artist and peripheral member of the group who died in 2004, when she was just sixty-five years old. Nancy Alvarez—the eccentric, hilarious leader of the Garden Artists who shaped each of their stories— died one year later, also sixty-five. To make sense of these losses, Killinger looks back to when the women were prolific Houston artists with Nancy as their quirky guide, a time when they were arguably most alive. Resolution comes through deciphering what their art meant to them back then and exploring what it could mean for readers today.

“We are from New Orleans” . . .

Pancho Villa’s Saddle at the Cadillac Bar Recipes and Memories

Wanda Garner Cash In 1924, Achilles Mehault “Mayo” Bessan and his eighteen-yearold bride journeyed from New Orleans to Mexico, where he ultimately transformed a dirt-floored cantina in Nuevo Laredo into a bar and restaurant renowned across the United States for its fine seafood and fancy cocktails. The Cadillac Bar built a reputation as one of the finest eateries and watering holes in the Southwest, even surviving a 1954 flood that devastated cities on both sides of the Rio Grande. Its history sprawls across more than a half-century and its food and drink drew inspiration from the culinary traditions of southern Louisiana, from pre-Prohibition New Orleans, and from the dusty border towns that straddle the Rio Grande in far South Texas. In her introduction, author Wanda Garner Cash writes, “I grew up behind the bar: first child and first grandchild. I spoke Spanish before I spoke English and I learned my numbers counting coins at my grandfather’s desk . . . I rode Pancho Villa’s saddle on a sawhorse in the main dining room, with a toy six-shooter in my holster. I fed the monkeys and parrots my grandfather kept in the Cadillac’s parking lot.” Readers will find themselves drawn to a different, more languid time: when Laredo society matrons passed long afternoons in the bar, sipping Ramos Gin Fizzes; when fraternity miscreants slouched into the Cadillac to recover from adventures “South of the Border”; when tourists waited in long lines for 40-cent tequila sours and plates of chicken envueltos. Step into the Cadillac Bar and take a seat. You’ll want to stay awhile. Tarleton State University Southwestern Studies in the Humanities

WANDA GARNER CASH is the daughter of Porter Garner Jr., a 1945 graduate of Texas A&M who ran the Cadillac Bar from 1946 until 1979. Cash is the former president of the Texas Press Association and Fellow of the F. Griffin Singer Professorship in Journalism at the University of Texas. The 2016 winner of the James Madison Award presented by the Freedom of Information Foundation, she is also the coauthor of The News in Texas and other books. She lives in Ingram, Texas.

Walking in the ancient woods, learning to see: unique meditations on art and nature . . .

Painting the Woods Nature, Memory, and Metaphor Deborah Paris

When first-time author and artist Deborah Paris stepped into Lennox Woods, an old-growth southern hardwood forest in northeast Texas, she felt a disruption that was both spatial and temporal. Walking the remnants of an old wagon trail past ancient stands of pine, white oak, elm, hickory, sweetgum, maple, hornbeam, and red oak, she felt drawn into a reverie that took her back to “the beginning, both physically and metaphorically.” Painting the Woods: Nature, Memory, and Metaphor explores the experience of landscape through the lens of art and art-making. It is a place-based meditation on nature, art, memory, and time, grounded in Paris’s experiences over the course of a year in Lennox Woods. Her account unfolds through the twin arcs of the changing seasons and her creative process as a landscape painter. In the tradition of Annie Dillard’s Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, narrative passages interweave with observations about the natural history of Lennox Woods, its flora and fauna, art history, the science of memory, Transcendentalist philosophy, the role of metaphor in creative work, and even loop quantum gravity. Each chapter explores a different aspect of the forest and a different step in the art-making process, illuminating our connection to the natural world through language, comprehension of time, and visual depictions of the landscape. The complex layers of the forest and Paris’s journey through it emerge as metaphors for the larger themes of the book, just as the natural world underpins the art-making drawn from it. Like the trail that winds through Lennox Woods, memory and time intertwine to provide a path for understanding nature, art, and our relationship to both. DEBORAH PARIS is a landscape painter whose work has been exhibited at Laguna Art Museum in Laguna Beach, California; Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum in Canyon, Texas; National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City; Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa; and other distinguished venues. Making her home in Clarksville, Texas, she teaches and lectures nationwide.

New in paper

Delbert McClinton One of the Fortunate Few

Diana Finlay Hendricks Much has happened with Delbert McClinton since the first edition of Delbert McClinton: One Of The Fortunate Few was released in 2017. That year, Rolling Stone called him “The Godfather of Americana Music,” and, in 2019, he received the Americana Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award. He received a Grammy in 2020 for Best Traditional Blues Album. This new-in-paper edition includes a new foreword, two new chapters, and several updates. “Asserts the songwriter’s centrality in forging a uniquely Texas blend of blues, country, R&B, and rock.”—The Austin Chronicle “Delbert McClinton’s many fans will find One of the Fortunate Few reaffirming, shedding light on a truly selfless, generous soul. Those unfamiliar with Delbert will be instantly drawn to him and will undoubtedly seek out his music and touring schedule. When you realize McClinton was playing at the birth of rock ’n’ roll in the ’50s, shared some harmonica tips with John Lennon, and has played just about every kind of American music in every conceivable venue from dives to the world’s biggest stages, you can’t help but admire this living legend. His story is of endurance, sacrifice, perseverance, and ultimately success in the unforgiving often cruel music business.”—Elmore Magazine John and Robin Dickson Series in Texas Music, sponsored by the Center for Texas Music History, Texas State University

DIANA FINLAY HENDRICKS, a San Marcos–based writer, journalist, and photographer, has earned statewide awards for reporting, photography, and print journalism. She recently contributed the James McMurtry chapter to Pickers and Poets: The Ruthlessly Poetic SingerSongwriters of Texas.

Delbert has long been revered as one of the greatest soul and blues singers alive. . . . [He] is the nexus of where blues/R&B and country meet, and his life and music span the richest era at the start of rock ‘n’ roll. He helped create the music we now love and celebrate as Americana and roots. He’s as fascinating and authentic as his music.” —Bonnie Raitt

A look at one of the most influential songwriters of the twentieth century . . .

Looks Like Rain

The Songwriting Legacy of Mickey Newbury Brian T. Atkinson

Mickey Newbury (1940–2002) grew up in Houston and moved to Nashville in the early 1960s, following his muse. He wrote top hits for many well-known artists, including Don Gibson, Andy Williams, Kenny Rogers, Tom Jones, and others. He is probably best known, however, for being name-checked in the song “Luckenbach, Texas (Back to the Basics of Love)” by Waylon Jennings. Newbury has been cited by Jennings, Kris Kristofferson, Townes Van Zandt, and many other eminent singer-songwriters as a primary influence. In his own independent fashion, Newbury helped to loosen the grip maintained for decades by the Nashville studio system, thus paving the way for later innovators like Willie Nelson, David Allan Coe, and others. He is still the only songwriter to produce hits on four different charts in the same year in 1968: “Just Dropped In (to See What Condition My Condition was In)” on the pop/rock charts, “Sweet Memories” on easy listening, “Time Is a Thief ” on the R&B charts, and “Here Comes the Rain, Baby” in country. Following the successful pattern established in his previous works on Townes Van Zandt and Ray Wylie Hubbard, veteran music journalist Brian T. Atkinson has interviewed artists such as Kris Kristofferson, Bobby Bare, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Steve Earle, Rodney Crowell, and many others to learn how Newbury’s influence continues to shape the musical and artistic approach of both seasoned and newer performers. Forewords by Larry Gatlin and Don McLean set the stage for a fascinating look back at one of the most revered songwriters and musicians of recent decades.

Corazón Abierto: Mexican American Voices in Texas Music provides a wide view of the myriad contributions Mexican American artists have made to music in Texas and the United States. Based on interviews with longtime stalwarts of Mexican American music—Flaco Jiménez, Tish Hinojosa, Ernie Durawa, Rosie Flores, and others—and also conversations with newer voices like Lesly Reynaga, Marisa Rose Mejia, Josh Baca, and many more, Kathleen Hudson allows the musicians to tell their own stories in a unique and personal way. As the artists reveal in their freeranging discussions with Hudson, their influences go far beyond traditionally Mexican genres like conjunto, norteño, and Tejano to extend into rock, jazz, country-western, zydeco, and many other styles. Hudson’s survey also includes essays, poetry, and other creative works by Dagoberto Gilb, Sandra Cisneros, and others, but the core of the book consists of what she describes as “a collection of voices from different locations in Texas. . . . Some represent voices from the edge, while others give us a view from the center.” Weaving together a tapestry that combines “family, borders, creativity, music, food, and community,” the book presents an image as varied and difficult to define as the musicians themselves. By sharing the artists’ accounts of their influences, their experiences, their family stories, and their musical and cultural journeys, Corazón Abierto reminds us that borders can be gateways, that differences enrich, rather than isolate.

The surprising career of a storied sailing ship . . .

Tales of the Sea Cloud

Luxury Yacht, Integrated Naval Vessel, Legendary Ship Ken W. Sayers

The Hussar V was launched in the early 1930s, first built for Marjorie Merriweather Post, owner of General Foods and heir to the Post Cereals fortune. By 1935, when Post married Joseph Davies, US ambassador to the Soviet Union, the ship was renamed Sea Cloud, the name it holds to this day. Soon after the nation entered World War II, the ship was partnered with the military as a weather ship under the command of Lt. Carlton Skinner. Tales of the Sea Cloud tells the story of a luxury yacht that became a remarkable wartime experiment in racial integration. After having witnessed an African American sailor be denied a promotion because of the limits of segregation, Skinner proposed to the commandant of the Coast Guard a plan to sail with a fully integrated crew. Ultimately, eighty black sailors, including four officers, were stationed on the Sea Cloud. Skinner’s experiment demonstrated that an integrated crew could work just as, or even more, efficiently as a segregated one and set an important precedent for later civil rights reforms. Author Ken W. Sayers takes readers on the full journey of the Sea Cloud, from its beginnings with the multimillionaire Hutton family, its wartime involvement, and its postwar ownership by Rafael Trujillo—soon-to-be assassinated dictator of the Dominican Republic—to its use as a commercial cruise ship in Panama, its near-disastrous physical deterioration and restoration, and on to the present day as a luxury charter sailing yacht. Readers will be captivated by the fascinating story of this historic vessel. Number 168: Williams-Ford Texas A&M University Military History Series

SAYERS is the author of US Navy Auxiliary Vessels: A History and Directory from World War I to Today and Uncommon Warriors: 200 Years of the Most Unusual American Naval Vessels, as well as coauthor of It Was a Very Good Year: A Cultural History of the United States from 1776 to the Present and Anchors and Atoms: The United States Navy Today.

A master artist offers visual and literary homage to his beloved East Texas . . .

Ode to East Texas The Art of Lee Jamison

Lee Jamison Foreword by Frances Brannen Vick With an Introduction by Carolina Castillo Crimm In 2017, Huntsville artist Lee Jamison embarked on a trip with sketchbook in hand, recording his impressions and recollections of East Texas, a region he has called home for about 45 years. Having built a solid reputation as a respected Texas Regionalist painter, Jamison, with other collectors and observers of the Texas art scene, has become convinced that East Texas, while rich in natural beauty and historic interest, has typically been underrepresented as a subject of serious artists. Landscapes and scenes of the Texas Hill Country and the TransPecos abound in collections and galleries across the state, but East Texas, in Jamison’s view, has received short shrift. Seeking to remedy this lack of parity, the artist traveled the winding roads and tree-lined passages of East Texas for well over a year, observing, sketching, and journaling along the way. The result is an astonishing visual record of contemporary East Texas land, lore, and culture as viewed through the eyes of an accomplished painter. These fine works are further enriched by the artist’s poignant and insightful literary observations, providing backstories and personal accounts for each image. A thoughtful introduction by historian Carolina Castillo Crimm provides the ideal entry into Jamison’s loving treatment of the region’s vistas and stories. Exhibiting an unshakeable awareness of place and a poet’s sensibility, Lee Jamison’s Ode to East Texas stands as an affectionate hymn to a familiar region, an invitation to a new appreciation of its qualities. Collectors, students, and aficionados of Texas art will be grateful for this fresh examination of a region too long overlooked. Number Twenty-three: Joe and Betty Moore Texas Art Series

LEE JAMISON, of Huntsville, Texas, has had works exhibited in the Witte Museum in San Antonio, the San Angelo Museum of Fine Art, the Texas State Capitol, and other venues. He is represented by Sarah Foltz Fine Arts of Houston. CAROLINA CASTILLO CRIMM, professor emerita of history at Sam Houston State University, is the author of De León: A Tejano Family History, which won the Presidio La Bahía and San Antonio Conservation Society awards.

Paintings that bring us home . . .

At Home on the Great Plains of Texas The Paintings of Laura Lewis

Laura Lewis with Christina Mulkey Foreword by Joe Holley With a laugh, Laura Lewis says of her art, “I am uncomfortable painting mountains, because they get in the way of the view.” The challenge for this High Plains realist is to create strong compositions out of the extreme horizontals that predominate her chosen artistic geography. As the works in this book will attest, Lewis excels in capturing the views discovered in her ramblings across the length and breadth of the region she has dubbed the “Great Plains of Texas.” Her paintings are a celebration of the land and the people that capture the distilled essence of a place that has formed her vision and her understanding of what it means to be at home. Opening with a foreword by longtime columnist and Texas observer Joe Holley, At Home on the Great Plains of Texas offers images of paintings that Lewis intends as “a glass of cool water for anyone thirsting for the beauty to be found here.” The paintings are interspersed with vignettes by Christina Mulkey, a writer whom Lewis invited to accompany her on many of her “image safaris.” Collectors, scholars, and historians have long known about and frequently commented on the centrality of place in Texas art. With the paintings in At Home on the Great Plains of Texas, Laura Lynn Lewis takes her place among the ranks of those who teach us the art of transformative perception; we learn how to “attend,” in Mulkey’s words. In seeing the arid, broad vistas of Lewis’s home country, we better understand how to appreciate our own landscapes of belonging. LAURA LEWIS, a “High Plains Regionalist,” captures the landand skyscapes of West Texas and the Panhandle. With works in the permanent collection of the San Angelo Museum of Fine Art, the John and Bobby Nau Collection of Texas Art, and in several corporate collections, she recently contributed the cover image and other paintings to Of Texas Rivers and Texas Art. She lives in Mason, Texas. CHRISTINA MULKEY is a freelance writer, nurse, and educational consultant. She lives in Lubbock, Texas.

From rowdy beginnings to current national prominence . . .

The National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum Changing Visions of the West Bobby D. Weaver

In June 1965, the National Cowboy Hall of Fame and Western Heritage Center, as it was then named, owned a mere handful of artifacts. In fact, the Oklahoma City institution was forced to borrow materials in order to mount exhibitions to support its inaugural events. From that modest beginning, the center, now known as the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, has grown into perhaps the world’s most respected repository for the study and understanding of the diverse cultures of the American West. But, as Bobby D. Weaver demonstrates in this no-holds-barred history, the path from those humble origins to the esteemed position the museum occupies today led through some roughand-tumble times, including a period of receivership. The autocratic style of the founding director, coupled with certain early less-than-ethical practices, forced the museum into what Weaver delicately terms “a legal tangle” that required a complete organizational and financial overhaul. With renewed professional leadership and the steadfast support of dedicated patrons and sponsors, the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum has developed and changed along with evolving understandings of the culture it was founded to celebrate. What was once a shrine to a particular manifestation of American frontier life has transformed into a world-class art and historical museum that represents the broad sweep of the American West—both lived and imagined—with its full range of social, ethnic, and economic diversity. As Weaver relates, today’s institution is well poised for the future as it furthers its mission of preserving and interpreting the heritage of a vital American region and its lifeways.

BOBBY D. WEAVER is also the author of Castro’s Colony: Empresario Development in Texas, 1842–1865 and Oilfield Trash: Life and Labor in the Oil Patch. From 1988 to 2001, he served as assistant director of the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. He lives in Edmond, Oklahoma.

A Field Guide to the Vernacular Buildings of the San Antonio Area Edited by Brent Fortenberry

The rich, multicultural heritage of San Antonio and the Texas Hill Country provide the backdrop for this first comprehensive guide to the culturally significant vernacular buildings of this diverse and historic region: structures designed and constructed by the people who used them rather than by professional architects or builders. A valuable, easy-to-use resource for heritage travelers, historic preservationists, and local historians, A Field Guide to the Vernacular Buildings of the San Antonio Area pairs incisive interpretive essays with detailed building descriptions, photographs, and architectural renderings. Featuring contributions from noted architectural historians and preservationists including Ken Hafertepe, Lewis Fisher, Maria Pfeiffer, and Sarah Z. Gould, this handy, generously illustrated guide will not only provide context and insight for understanding the importance of these buildings but will also engage readers with the challenges of preserving our cultural heritage as represented in the built environment. Professional and avocational preservationists, along with interested travelers and general readers, will appreciate the thorough discussion and analysis of such well-known sites as the San Antonio Riverwalk, the San Antonio missions, and the public buildings of the historic Westside district. Reaching beyond the immediate vicinity of San Antonio, the book also offers expert commentary on the German settlements in Central Texas and east of San Antonio, providing an inclusive and inviting survey of how settlers of various origins placed their unique imprints on Texas. BRENT FORTENBERRY is assistant professor in the College of Architecture at Texas A&M University, a faculty fellow in the Center for Heritage Conservation, and a research fellow in the Center for Beaches and Shores, Department of Marine Sciences at Texas A&M University– Galveston.

The first comprehensive reference on diurnal raptors of Texas . . .

Raptors of Texas

A Natural History of Diurnal Birds of Prey C. Craig Farquhar and Clint Boal

Raptors—birds of prey that hunt during the day—include easily recognizable birds like eagles, hawks, or falcons. They may be seen perched on highway signs, electrical poles, or soaring overhead in urban and rural spaces across North America. Here, avian ecology and raptor experts Craig Farquhar and Clint Boal present the first comprehensive volume on these birds of prey in Texas. Given the state’s size, location, and biodiversity, it is not surprising that Texas leads other states in the documented number of raptor occurrence. The introductory chapters of Raptors of Texas provide information on raptor ecology, evolution, behavior, morphology, and the unique conservation challenges raptors face. Detailed species descriptions of the most common raptors in Texas come next, illustrated with lifelike graphite drawings and range maps. Additionally, short entries for rare sightings in the state are provided. This reference is a must-have for serious birders, ornithologists, avian ecologists, and wildlife professionals who want to know more about these birds of prey and the important roles they play in our urban and rural environments alike.

The untold story of Lawrence Sullivan Ross and Texas A&M . . .

Sul Ross at Texas A&M John A. Adams Jr. ’73

Most Texans today know of Lawrence Sullivan Ross only by his namesake, Sul Ross State University, or for his role in the capture of Cynthia Ann Parker as a fabled Texas Ranger. A few may know that he was a general in the Confederate army or that he served as the nineteenth governor of Texas. But for former and current students of Texas A&M University, he is known as “Sully”—an affectionate nickname referring to the oldest campus statue, which is the repository of wished-upon pennies left for good luck prior to taking final exams. In Sul Ross at Texas A&M, John A. Adams Jr., chronicler of Texas A&M University history, presents an in-depth examination of Ross’s life as a college president. Adams shows how by the late 1880s, the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas was on the brink of collapse. Student discontent, administrative mismanagement, and faculty factionalism threatened the continued existence of the fledgling school. The college’s board of directors were desperate and offered the presidency to Ross. Adams details the steps Ross took to bring order out of chaos, expanding and modernizing the college and leading the school’s finances out of the red. Many Aggie traditions first took shape during Ross’s tenure: the class ring, the band, and even the school’s first intercollegiate football game against the University of Texas. Ross’s years at the helm were transformative. Fans of A&M and Texas history will be enthralled by this captivating account of Sul Ross’s time as president of A&M.

Working together to create innovative wartime solutions . . . 

Securing the MRAP

Lessons Learned in Marketing and Military Procurement James Hasik

Dwight D. Eisenhower once quipped, “You will not find it difficult to prove that battles, campaigns, and even wars have been won or lost primarily because of logistics.” Military acquisition and procurement—that is, how a nation manages investments, technologies, programs, and support—is critical to wartime success or failure. When unexpected battlefield problems arise, how do the government, the military, and industry work together to ensure effective solutions? During the American counterinsurgent campaign in Iraq, the improvised explosive device emerged as a disruptive and devastating threat. As Humvees, and their occupants, were ripped apart by IEDs, it was clear that new solutions had to be found. These solutions already existed but had not been procured, highlighting the need for more effective marketing to the military by industry. The ultimate successful response—the mineresistant, ambush-protected vehicle, or MRAP—required years of entrepreneurial marketing by the defense industry. In Securing the MRAP: Lessons Learned in Marketing and Military Procurement, James Hasik explores how these vehicles, which the American military mostly rejected despite the great need for them, eventually came to be adopted as the Pentagon’s top procurement priority. Hasik traces the story of the MRAP from the early 1970s to the future of mine-resistant vehicles on the battlefields of tomorrow. An important contribution to the seemingly disparate fields of marketing and defense policy, Securing the MRAP is an eyeopening revelation to defense industrialists, military officers, and government officials who want to understand how to avoid another IED-Humvee debacle.

“I shall not seek, and I will not accept . . .”

Lyndon Johnson, Vietnam, and the Presidency The Speech of March 31, 1968 David Zarefsky

Even those who remember hearing those words may not remember that they came at the very end of a 45-minute speech primarily concerning Vietnam. Three months into an already tumultuous year, in the aftermath of the Tet offensive and facing a deeply divided country, President Lyndon Baines Johnson addressed the nation to announce new initiatives and appeal for public support. The speech of March 31, 1968 announced a bombing halt over much of North Vietnam, a limited troop increase rather than a major escalation, and his own decision to withdraw from the presidential race. Each of these decisions was unexpected, a major surprise that stunned the nation. In Lyndon Johnson, Vietnam, and the Presidency, political rhetoric scholar David Zarefsky examines the three key announcements and how they fit together in the speech. In particular, LBJ’s announcement that he would not run for re-election gave the deescalation measures more credibility because they could not be seen as political ploys. Zarefsky traces the development of the speech through eleven drafts, reflecting disagreements and doubts among the writers and advisers. In turn, he sets these efforts in the larger context of the Cold War and the impact of the Tet offensive. Drawing on archival sources and reflecting rhetorical insights, this book illuminates one of the most consequential speeches of the 1960s. Even though the fighting in Vietnam would continue for several more years, the course of America’s conduct in Vietnam was changed permanently by this speech. Kenneth E.

The First Washington Conference, codenamed Arcadia, was a secret meeting held in the days immediately following the entrance of the United States into World War II. It was the first meeting between the United States and Britain to determine military strategy. Franklin Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, and their top military advisors spent hours making major decisions that would determine the direction of the Allied war effort. The main achievement of the conference was the “Europe first” decision, declaring that the defeat of Germany was the highest priority. Neither side knew what to expect before this momentous meeting. Before the war, the British and the Americans had differing strategic concerns, especially about the Pacific and East Asia: differences of such contrast that the conference was in jeopardy of ending early if not resolved. The narrative uses a chronological approach that examines in detail each day of the conference. This day-by-day methodology shows the gradual development of rapport between the allied chieftains, why and how it forged relationships, and the undercurrent of tension as each ally sought to ensure its national interests while cooperating with the other in a grand alliance. Historian and retired brigadier general John F. Shortal skillfully unravels the inside story of this pivotal meeting. He shows how the working and personal relationships between Roosevelt and Churchill, as well as their military chiefs of staffs, first took root and then blossomed during the conference. Code Name Arcadia makes a major contribution not only to the history of World War II, but also to our understanding of the power structure of the postwar world. Number 167: Williams-Ford Texas A&M University Military History Series

JOHN F. SHORTAL is the author of Forged by Fire: Robert L. Eichelberger and the Pacific War. He retired from the US Army as a brigadier general and subsequently served as Director for Joint History for the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He resides in Washington, DC.

The Old Army in Texas

A Research Guide to the U.S. Army in Nineteenth Century Texas Thomas T. Smith

A classic work in Texas military, The Old Army in Texas is now available in paperback with a new foreword by Robert Wooster. U.S. Army officer and historian Thomas “Ty” Smith presents a comprehensive and authoritative single-source reference for the activities of the regular army in the Lone Star State during the nineteenth century. Beginning with a series of maps that sketch the evolution of fort locations on the frontier, Smith furnishes an overview with his introductory essay. The second part of this guide lists the departmental commanders, the location of the military headquarters, and the changes in the administrative organization and military titles for Texas. Part III provides a dictionary of 223 posts, forts, and camps in the state. The fourth part gives a year by year snapshot of total army strength in the state, the regiments assigned, and the garrisons and commanders of each major fort and camp. Supplying the only such synopsis of its kind, the guide's Part V offers a chronological description of 224 U.S. Army combat actions in the Indian Wars with vivid details of each engagement. The 900 entries in the selected bibliography of Part VI are divided topically into sections on biographical sources and regimental histories, histories of forts, garrison life, civil-military relations, the Mexican War, and frontier operations. The Old Army in Texas is an indispensable reference and research tool for students, scholars, and military history aficionados. It will be of great value to those interested in Texas history, especially military history and local and regional studies. This superb reference work is illustrated with a number of maps and rare photographs of the U.S. Army in nineteenth century Texas. THOMAS T. SMITH, Col. (Ret.) U.S. Army, of San Antonio is the author of The U.S. Army and the Texas Frontier Economy, 1845–1900 (Texas A&M University Press) and The Old Army in the Big Bend of Texas: The Last Cavalry Frontier, 1911–1921 (Texas State Historical Association).

The National Parks A Century of Grace

Karla K. Morton & Alan Birkelbach Poets Karla K. Morton and Alan Birkelbach began this journey to celebrate our national parks’ one hundredth anniversary, but for these two poets the sojourns quickly became something greater than that. In their words, “As humans we have this tendency to look at a piece of land and see real estate. [But] when concrete covers all our natural spaces, not only do we lose earth’s creatures, we also lose the great teacher of our souls. You cannot sit beneath trees taller than the Statue of Liberty, or gaze upon vistas untouched since their creation, without feeling the awe and wonder of what the natural world has to offer. You cannot experience such beauty without being wholly changed. Our great-great-greatgrandchildren deserve these untouched gifts.” This journey, illustrated with gorgeous color photos of all of America’s grand national parks, is a feast for the eyes and heart. In the end, it is a plea for us to save these wonders for all future generations. Award-winning 2010 Texas Poet Laureate KARLA K. MORTON has twelve poetry collections. A national Wrangler Award winner, twice an Indie National Book Award winner, a Betsy Colquitt Award winner, and an E2C Grant recipient, Morton is widely published. She is a member of the Texas Institute of Letters and Academy of American Poets. ALAN BIRKELBACH, a Texas native and author of eleven poetry books, is the 2005 Texas Poet Laureate. He is a member of the Texas Institute of Letters and Academy of American Poets. Twice an Indie Book Award finalist, he is also a winner of a Spur Award for Best Western Poem from the prestigious Western Writers of America.

Speak Loudly and Carry A Little Stick A Conductor’s Chronicles John R. Giordano

In 1965, John Giordano auditioned for Ezra Rachlin, the music director for the Fort Worth and Austin Symphony Orchestras, by playing a concerto with each. As a result of the audition, Rachlin engaged Giordano to perform with both orchestras and offered him the assistant conductor position with the Fort Worth Youth Orchestra. The results of that serendipitous audition proved to be the impetus for Giordano’s grand career in symphonic orchestral conducting and led to his long-term relationship with both the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra and the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. Speak Loudly and Carry a Little Stick: A Conductor’s Chronicles tells the story of the development of the FWSO and the Cliburn competition as the internationally renowned conductor John Giordano knew them. These enlightening and often humorous chronicles give readers insight into the expansion of the FWSO and the Cliburn during Giordano’s tenure. Giordano’s musical career and adventures carried him all over the world, from China and Russia to Amsterdam and Mexico, and gave him an opportunity to play with musical greats such as Ella Fitzgerald, Itzhak Perlman, and Tony Bennett. Through friendships with these talented artists and international figures and through his relationship with music, Giordano proves how critically important music is to our society and how music can positively impact a community. JOHN GIORDANO is a conductor, performer, composer, arranger, and teacher. He was music director of the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra from 1972 until 2000, founder of the Fort Worth Chamber Orchestra, jury chairman of the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition from 1973 until 2013, and music director of the Corpus Christi Symphony for twelve seasons. He is currently music director emeritus of both the Fort Worth Symphony and the Fort Worth Youth Orchestra and a retired distinguished fellow in music at TCU.

Hardeman Lodge W. W. McNeal

It is the mid 1870s, and the railroad being built westward toward San Antonio will eventually connect Texas to California. Luling, one of the towns springing up along the route, is the end of the line for a year or so. Established in 1874 a few miles east of the San Marcos River, Luling is a melting pot of humanity. Later known as the toughest town in Texas, it is a haven for gamblers, outlaws, and “ladies of the night.” Hardeman Lodge follows some of the characters introduced in Plum Creek (TCU Press, 2016) as they meet the challenges that life presents them. Billy McCulloch faces some tough moral choices as he embarks upon the practice of law. Ada Adams and Everett Hardeman become engulfed in a crisis arising from her marriage to a cruel husband. And the indomitable Lily Poe is forced to deal with tragedy. In spite of lingering racial prejudice and streaks of lawlessness, principles of justice and fair play still live in the hearts of most of the characters who come near Hardeman Lodge. W. W. MCNEAL is a retired trial lawyer and a sixth-generation Texan. He lives on the family ranch in Central Texas with his partner, Cathy, along with two cats and a dog. The land has been in his family for generations, and the original 1850 deed to the property is in his possession. McNeal is also a songwriter, as well as a devoted student of Texas and local history.

With One Hand Tied behind My Brain A Memoir of Life after Stroke Avrel Seale

Most would not expect a book about a stroke to be entertaining, but this memoir will force you to laugh through a tragedy, then cry, then laugh again. Avrel Seale was fifty, did not smoke or drink, had low blood pressure, and had hiked more than two hundred miles the year a stroke nearly ended his life. In an instant, he was teleported into the body of an old man—unbalanced, shaky, spastic, and half-paralyzed. Overnight, he was plunged into a world of brain surgeons, nurses, insurance case managers, and an abundance of therapists. Beginning three weeks before his stroke to set the stage, Seale leads us through the harrowing day of his stroke and emergency brain surgery with minute-by-minute intensity. We then follow him through ICU, a rehab hospital, and a neuro-recovery group-living center, where we meet a memorable cast of other stroke survivors and also those recovering from auto accidents and gunshots. Finally home, Seale leads us through a new life of firsts, including returning to work, to driving, to playing guitar, to camping, and even to writing a book—all with one hand. What emerges from his humor (“elegant but devastating”) is a revealing critique of the hospital experience, the insurance industry, and rehab culture. And his nothing-off-the-table quest for recovery shows both the sobering struggles and inspiring possibilities of life after a stroke in twenty-first century America. AVREL SEALE lives in Austin with his wife, Kirstin, and three sons. He has been a newspaper reporter and columnist and has spent much of his career at the University of Texas at Austin, as editor of its alumni magazine, speechwriter for its president, and as a writer for its news, marketing, and development offices.

Sherry Kafka Wagner

My Name Is a Hurricane? Julie Beasley Hannah Jackson is a story about family and place. In the early twentieth century, a married man in a small Texas town accidentally encounters Hannah, a young woman with no family. He falls in love. In defiance of the town’s mores, he leaves his wife, marries his love, and takes her to live on a ranch, away from the community’s condemnation. Yet in spite of love and commitment, the couple cannot escape the town’s judgment. One particular event that shocks their relationship will affect the rest of their lives. During the years that follow, a web is woven that enmeshes not only the lovers, but their three children as well. Growing up, the young ones find themselves tangled in their parents’ predicament. When they become young adults striving to find an identity and a place in the world, their struggles are marked by the effects of family and place.

New and Selected Poems Laurie Ann Guerrero

The Entire World of Sports by One of America's Most Famous Sportswriters Dan Jenkins

This collection of Guerrero’s new and selected work documents the struggle to both honor and disrupt cultural, social, and familial traditions and histories. Hers is an honest and fearless examination of racism, sexism, domestic abuse, illness, and loss. Feminist writer, mother, and educator, Guerrero has been described by the San Antonio Current as “a badass of poetic proportions.” In her poems, bodies sway “above the cotton like sheets on a line,” women turn into roosters, grief is carried like a newborn, snake venom is made in the marrow of the atlas bone, and the greatest revolution is “to sing graveside, to whisper intention into bowls of beans, to dance / without fear or fight.” With her unfailingly bold imagery and sharp eye, this collection of Guerrero’s work is a carefully constructed artifact by a poet who works and thinks with her hands. This volume is the fourteenth in the TCU Press Texas Poet Laureate series. TCU Texas Poets Laureate Series

LAURIE ANN GUERRERO is the author of Tongue in the Mouth of the Dying (Notre Dame 2013) and A Crown for Gumecindo (Aztlan Libre 2015).

The Earps Invade Southern California

Bootlegging Los Angeles, Santa Monica, and the Old Soldiers’ Home Don Chaput and David D. de Haas

Most readers of the Wild West know Wyatt Earp, Virgil Earp, and Morgan Earp for the famous shootout on the streets of Tombstone, Arizona. But few know the later years of the closeknit Earp family, which revolved around patriarch Nicholas Earp, and their last push at a major monetary coup in Los Angeles. By 1900 a newly established Old Soldiers’ Home was in place at Sawtelle (between Santa Monica and Los Angeles), with thousands of veterans earning monthly pensions, but in an environment where alcohol was prohibited. Enter the Earps and their “blind pig” (illicit alcohol sales) scheme. Two of the Earps, Nicholas and son Newton, were enrolled in the Soldiers’ Home, and Newton’s far more famous half-brothers Wyatt and Virgil showed up from time to time, but the star of the operation was older brother James. Booze would flow, the pension money would be “dispersed about,” and jails were sometimes filled, as the Earps and several other men on the make competed for the veterans’ money. We are also reintroduced to Old West figures such as “Gunfighter Surgeon” Dr. George Goodfellow, “Silver Tongued Orator” Thomas Fitch, millionaire George Hearst, detective J.V. Brighton, Lucky Baldwin, and many other well-known westerners who touched the lives of the Earps. DON CHAPUT is the author of Virgil Earp: Western Peace Officer; The Earp Papers: In a Brother's Image; and co-author of Cochise County Stalwarts: A Who's Who of the Territorial Years. He lives in Pasadena, California. DAVID D. DE HAAS, MD currently practices emergency medicine in Orange County, California. He has published many medical and Wild West-related articles. He resides in San Juan Capistrano, California.

Firearms of the Texas Rangers From the Frontier Era to the Modern Age Doug Dukes

From their founding in the 1820s up to the modern age, the Texas Rangers have shown the ability to adapt and survive. Part of that survival depended on their use of firearms. The evolving technology of these weapons often determined the effectiveness of these early day Rangers. John Coffee “Jack” Hays and Samuel Walker would leave their mark on the Rangers by incorporating new technology which allowed them to alter tactics when confronting their adversaries. The Frontier Battalion was created at about the same time as the Colt Peacemaker and the Winchester 73—these were the guns that “won the West.” Firearms of the Texas Rangers, with more than 180 photographs, tells the history of the Texas Rangers primarily through the use of their firearms. Author Doug Dukes narrates famous episodes in Ranger history, including Jack Hays and the Paterson, the Walker Colt, the McCulloch Colt Revolver (smuggled through the Union blockade during the Civil War), and the Frontier Battalion and their use of the Colt Peacemaker and Winchester and Sharps carbines. Readers will delight in learning of Frank Hamer’s marksmanship with his Colt Single Action Army and his Remington, along with Captain J. W. McCormick and his two .45 Colt pistols, complete with photos. Whether it was a Ranger in 1844 with his Paterson on patrol for Indians north of San Antonio, or a Ranger in 2016 with his LaRue 7.62 rifle working the Rio Grande looking for smugglers and terrorists, the technology may have changed, but the gritty job of the Rangers has not. DOUG DUKES, a native Texan, retired after a lengthy law enforcement career with the Austin Police Department. He has written articles for Wild West History Association Journal, Wild West, and True West magazines, and also the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum’s online chronicle, The Texas Ranger Dispatch. He lives near Liberty Hill, Texas.

Scouting with the Buffalo Soldiers

Lieutenant Powhatan Clarke, Frederic Remington, and the Tenth U.S. Cavalry in the Southwest John P. Langellier

On a hot summer’s day in Montana, a daring frontier cavalry officer, Powhatan Henry Clarke, died at the height of his promising career. A member of the U.S. Military Academy’s Class of 1884, Clarke graduated dead last, and while short on academic application, he was long on charm and bravado. Clarke obtained a commission with the black troops of the Tenth Cavalry, earning his spurs with these “Buffalo Soldiers.” He evolved into a fearless field commander at the troop level, gaining glory and first-hand knowledge of what it took to campaign in the West. During his brief, action-packed career, Clarke saved a black trooper’s life while under Apache fire and was awarded the Medal of Honor. A chance meeting brought Clarke together with artist Frederic Remington, who brought national attention to Clarke when he illustrated the exploit for an 1886 Harper’s Weekly. The officer and artist became friends, and Clarke served as a model and consultant for future artwork by Remington. Remington’s many depictions of Clarke added greatly to the cavalryman’s luster. In turn, the artist gained fame and fortune in part from drawing on Clarke as his muse. The story of these two unlikely comrades tells much about the final stages of the Wild West and the United States’ emergence on the international scene. Along the way Geronimo, The Apache Kid, “Texas” John Slaughter, and others played their roles in Clarke’s brief, but compelling drama.

Living in the Shadow of a Hell Ship

The Survival Story of U.S. Marine George Burlage, a WWII Prisonerof-War of the Japanese Edited by Georgianne Burlage

U.S. Marine George Burlage was part of the largest surrender in American history at Bataan and Corregidor in the spring of 1942, where the Japanese captured more than 85,000 troops. More than forty percent would not survive World War II. His prisoner-of-war ordeal began at Cabanatuan near Manila, where the death rate in the early months of World War II was fifty men a day. Sensing that Cabanatuan was a death trap, he managed to get transferred to the isolated island of Palawan to help build an airfield for his captors. Malaria and other tropical diseases caused him to be sent to Manila for treatment in 1943 (a year later, 139 of his fellow POWs were massacred on Palawan). After another year of building airfields, Burlage survived a 38-day voyage in the hull of a Japanese hell ship and ended the war as a miner for Mitsubishi in northern Japan. By sheer luck, strength, and a bit of sabotage, he survived and was freed in September 1945 after the Japanese surrendered. He had endured starvation and torture and lost half of his prewar weight, but no one had killed him. After the war Burlage became a journalist and wrote about his POW experiences. His daughter Georgianne discovered his writings after George passed away in 2008, and edited them with additional historical material to provide context for his World War II experiences in the Pacific. Number Eighteen: North Texas Military Biography and Memoir Series

GEORGIANNE BURLAGE, daughter of George Burlage, is a fifthgeneration Texan and teacher of secondary history and journalism for more than thirty years. She is a national officer of the American Defenders of Bataan and Corregidor Memorial Society, and lives in Denton, Texas.

Winner, Katherine Anne Porter Prize in Short Fiction

Some People Let You Down Mike Alberti

The nine stories in Mike Alberti’s debut collection shine a sharp light on small-town American life —not the Arcadian small towns of yesteryear, but the old mill towns hanging on after the mill has stopped running, the deserted agricultural communities in the middle of vast industrial farms, places where bad luck has become part of the weather. But even in these blighted, neglected landscapes, the possibility of renewal always presents itself: there is hope for these places and the characters who inhabit them. In these fresh, innovative stories, some people let you down, but some people don’t. “The key to Mike Alberti’s Some People Let You Down is the emotional gravity that dominates these characters’ lives, drawing them down into themselves, their pasts, their home towns. This is character-driven fiction at its finest.”—Zach VandeZande, author of Liminal Domestic: Stories and judge Number Nineteen: Katherine Anne Porter Prize in Short Fiction

MIKE ALBERTI’S short fiction has appeared in Colorado Review, Crazyhorse, Gulf Coast, Indiana Review, One Story, and elsewhere. His work has been supported by fellowships and residencies including the Camargo Foundation, the James Merrill House, the Ucross Foundation, and the MacDowell Colony. He lives in Minneapolis, where he serves as the Managing Director for Minnesota Prison Writing Workshop and teaches in prisons across the state.

Officers and Offenders, the Texas Prison Story

Bob Alexander and Richard K. Alford Foreword by Bill Stephens

Tall Walls and High Fences is the first comprehensive history of Texas prisons, written by a former law enforcement officer and an officer of the Texas prisons. Bob Alexander and Richard K. Alford chronicle the significant events and transformation of the Texas prison system from its earliest times to the present day, paying special attention to the human side of the story. Within these pages are stories of prison breaks, bloodhounds chasing escapees, and gunfights. Inside the walls are deadly confrontations, human trafficking, rape, clandestine consensual trysts, and tricks turned against correctional officers. Famous people and episodes in Texas prison history receive their due, from Texas Rangers apprehending and placing outlaws in prison to the 1974 prison siege at Huntsville. Throughout this long history Alexander and Alford pay special tribute to the more than 75 correctional officers, lawmen, and civilians who lost their lives in the line of duty.

A Biscuit for Your Shoe

New in Paper

Beatrice Upshaw Introduction and photographs by Richard Orton

Half a Century of Texas Culture, One Newspaper Column at a Time

A Memoir of County Line, a Texas Freedom Colony

A Boyhood Dream Realized

Burle Pettit

A Biscuit for Your Shoe captures the lore of a community which began as a freedom colony west of Nacogdoches in East Texas, through the eyes of Beatrice Upshaw. The book is a memoir, but it shares more than merely family memories of significant events. It tells of beliefs, home remedies, folk games, and customs, as well as the importance of religion and education to a community of like-minded people. The narrative is a rich source of colloquial language and proverbial sayings that help define a group of people and their strong sense of place. Richard Orton was first introduced to County Line by F. E. “Ab” Abernethy, the Secretary-Editor of the Texas Folklore Society for nearly four decades. Richard’s introduction explains the value of the stories Beatrice Upshaw presents; they are personal, but the overall narrative speaks collectively about the perseverance and innovation of many people who found a way to not only survive, but to thrive in East Texas. Number Twenty-eight: Texas Folklore Society Extra Book

BEATRICE UPSHAW lives in the Upshaw Community, where she serves as one of the County Line Baptist Church musicians. Longtime photographer RICHARD ORTON was born and lives in Nacogdoches.

This collection of columns from the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal tells stories, and tells about telling stories. They also reflect boyhood dreams . . . and foolishness, fears, beliefs, customs, traditions, and sometimes things that are no longer part of our culture but we wish were. All reflect what was—and for many, still is—important. If “the traditional knowledge of a culture” is how we define what folklore is, this volume provides an intimate look at the folklore of Lubbock, Texas, and the greater area of the South Plains. You don’t have to be an avid reader of the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal, or even be from Lubbock or know where Moran is to relate to the issues covered in these pieces. “The vast literature of Texas offers no more lyrical and loving a tribute to people and places than what you'll read in A Boyhood Dream Realized. Burle Pettit charms with his keen wit, moving nostalgia, and ever so deep appreciation for the beauty and magic of the written word.”—Carlton Stowers, two-time Edgar Award winner and member of the Texas Literary Hall of Fame Number Twenty-seven: Texas Folklore Society Extra Book

The Texas Tonkawas Stanley S. McGowen

This new study revolves around the Tonkawa tribe in the history of the Lone Star State and the greater Southwest. The chronological account allows readers to understand its triumphs and struggles over the course of a century or more, and places the story in a larger historical narrative of shifting alliances, cultural encounters and economic opportunity. From a coalition with the Lipan Apaches to the incorporation of Tonkawa scouts in the U.S. Army during the late nineteenth century, the author tells the story of these often overlooked people. By highlighting the role of the Tonkawas, Dr. McGowen provides a fresh appreciation of their influence in frontier history and renders their ultimate fate all the more heartbreaking. STANLEY S. MCGOWEN received his Ph.D. in history from Texas Christian University. He is a retired U.S. Army officer and university professor. He is also the author of Horse Sweat and Powder Smoke: The First Texas Cavalry in the Civil War published by Texas A & M University Press.

Sacrificed at the Alamo

Tragedy and Triumph in the Texas Revolution Richard Bruce Winders

The Battle of the Alamo is one of the most compelling stories from American history. Richard B. Winders, former historian and curator at the Alamo, examines events that led to this epic struggle and concludes that in-fighting among the revolutionary leadership doomed the Alamo garrison. The Texan victories of 1835 created discord among rebel leaders as various factions strove to direct the revolution to meet their own specific goals. That bickering resulted in an almost total breakdown of Texan military forces and was largely responsible for the twin tragedies of the Alamo and Goliad. 978-1-933337-87-6 ebook 978-1-933337-76-0 paper $19.95 978-1-880510-80-3 cloth $24.95

“Texans have two hometowns—their own and San Antonio . . .”

Pearl Sets the Pace

Mary Carolyn Hollers George A family business frequently involves enough drama to fill a book—this one in fact. Pearl Sets the Pace tells the story of two landmark companies and a mighty dynasty. It begins in 1883, with the arrival of German brew master Otto Koehler in the bustling city of San Antonio, Texas. He establishes himself as one of the founders of a firm that eventually becomes the Pearl Brewery. In 1914, his murder at the hands of a disgruntled mistress becomes front-page news across the nation. Emma, his grieving (but tough-as-nails) widow, assumes leadership of the company and keeps it afloat during the dark days of Prohibition. In 1941, Margaret Koehler, one of Emma’s granddaughters, marries David Earl Pace. After World War II, the young couple formulate a secret recipe for Mexican salsa. Like mad scientists, they experiment in their home kitchen and try out their concoctions on friends. From such humble beginnings grew a mighty enterprise, a real-world manifestation of the American Dream. By the early 1990s, Dave and Margaret’s picante sauce was the top-selling Mexican food condiment in the world. Their descendants sold the business to the Campbell Soup Company for $1.1 billion. Through murders and mistresses, Depression and divorces, booms and busts, a passion for product sustained the Koehler-Pace clan. To make something, not simply for their neighbors to buy, but also something that would become integral to their daily lives. That became their defining principle. Yes, it defined them, but it also characterized their city. Can anyone really imagine San Antonio without beer and picante sauce? This is the story of a proud, complicated, and interwoven family and the two great enterprises they wrangled. But it is also the story of a unique Texas city and the people it breeds. It’s a business story, a family story, and a story of a thriving, modern city; it is also our story. MARY CAROLYN HOLLERS GEORGE is a writer and architectural historian. A native of San Antonio, Texas.  She is a retired professor of art history.  She is a member of the Society of Architectural Historians.

Special Education Poems

Caroline M. Mar Special Education is a powerful collection of poems confronting American identity in the 21st century. In large part, it traces a new teacher’s poetic journey to understanding her work and herself. Mar’s poems, which move between free verse and received forms, between the “I” of her speaker-narrator and the voices of colleagues, students, and the world around all of them, investigate a variety of topics—how love is expressed by doing something one hates for a partner who loves it, what a charging bear on a camping trip can reveal about gender, the failures of an education system as depicted through colors and images on a slideshow presentation. The collection closes on a speaker both more and less certain about her place in the world. Her hometown, as she gazes across it in “Views,” is changing dramatically as she asks, “Why nostalgia / for a place that is still my place?” By the poem’s end, having covered everything from the places where her grandparents died to the effects of the next big earthquake to luxury cars, the speaker has revealed herself to both be inside of and resistant to the machinations of systems that seem prepared to crush her students: education, racism, gentrification, ableism. What does life look like on an everyday scale against the churning of the world? In Special Education, Mar embraces this truth and, in poems that show us what we have yet to learn, employs both her systemic mind and poetic voice to confront the “ugly little loves” that the world makes of us all.

As if the glassshattering earthquake the poet imagines in today’s high-rise San Francisco had entered her language, I found myself profoundly shaken by these powerful poems— by their truthfulness to the experience of our fractured and fractious world of warring identities that want to enlist us against ourselves. And, as she intimately shares the ordeal of trying to teach kids whom ‘the world will try/to drown,’ her poems utterly transform the meaning of ‘special education.’” —Eleanor Wilner

Death of the Immigrant Language First, I went to get some dim sum. I was so hungry. Goodbyes and tears and watching the mortuary van pull away will do that to a person. And when I walked in to order, mm-goi, yut goh ha gow, facing the usual lady with her streaky greys across the stainless steel counter, that’s when I realized no one will say my name again. I will not use these words again, except to ohdah food. The counters are kept clean of grease and rust. I wish my mouth could do the same. I will not hear you say my name. I will not hear, except in passing, a few words here and there—the bus, the market, the shapes and sounds that could fit on one postcard: all I knew how to say to you, anymore, and even that makes no damn sense: goodbye-see-you-again

David Armand Set in the bucolic town of Angie, Louisiana, The Lord’s Acre tells the story of Eli Woodbine, a young boy who watches helplessly as his fundamentalist parents give in to their increasing sense of desperation and paranoia, living in a world where they can no longer see any hope or reason for existing. When the family is at their absolute lowest, they come across a local, charismatic church leader, in whom they quickly place all of their faith. Yet this man—known to them only as “Father”—is unlike anyone they have ever encountered before. But one day, and with no explanation save for a mysterious gift given to Eli, Father disappears, leaving everything behind him in ruin. Eli and his parents attempt to pick up the pieces, however, as they try to find answers to their new predicament. But their efforts go awry when Eli breaks into an abandoned grocery store one night in order to steal food for his family. He is arrested and taken to jail, where, to his surprise, he is finally able to discover the hope he had always been so desperate to find. The Sabine Series in Literature

Dear October Poems

Mary Morris The poems of Dear October chronicle the evolution of the natural world and a daughter caring for her mother during the last year of her life. Months of the final year act as the scaffolding for the collection, as they reflect on the twelve moons. The spirit of home, family, and mother-daughter relationship intertwine with the diversity of culture and ecology in northern New Mexico. Dear October is a gathering of poems on the intimacy of caring for a dying parent at home, while being acutely aware of the progression of time and the natural world. The poems were often the way the author prepared for loss—written through events, memory, landscape, myth, and dreams. The writing regards a childhood in Oklahoma but mostly celebrates the diverse landscape and cultures of New Mexico. MARY MORRIS’s poems appear in Poetry, Poetry Daily, Boulevard, Prairie Schooner, Arts & Letters, The Massachusetts Review, and numerous other literary journals. She received the Rita Dove Award, the New Mexico Discovery Award in Poetry, and the 2019 Mountain West Prize in poetry from Western Humanities Review. She is the author of Enter Water, Swimmer.

In caring for her mother before death, Mary Morris has moved a familiar subject forward with new beauty, truth, and humor. Morris is a storyteller, first and foremost, incredibly gifted in putting the heart to the word. Every incident on each page is an inimitable moment that makes the breath of dying different from any other’s on earth. The poet writes, ‘I try to get out of the way so the soul may draw near, but I keep tripping . . . get lost in my mother skirts.’ These poems are part folklore, part history, part mysticism. You’ll seldom see a relationship, at its emotional core, written so individually and so achingly. Never maudlin nor sentimental, Morris has raised the bar for possibilities between people. I love a book that turns gravity into light, and I’m so glad we were invited in. Dear October should be a choice for ‘Best of the Year.’” —Grace Cavalieri, Maryland Poet Laureate

In the Valley of the Kings Stories

William Black The seven stories comprising In the Valley of the Kings limn hard lives in the anthracite coal region of northeastern Pennsylvania, depicting with lyrical precision the moments in which lives shift or unravel, or achieve a fragile kind of grace. In the half-century after the coal’s collapse, its people continue on among the silent ghosts of the past. A son recalls the night his parents’ marriage unspooled; a father, haunted by the mystery of his lost daughter, finds himself in the ruins of town abandoned as an underground mine fire burns for half a century; a high school principal struggles for words in the eerie aftermath of group suicide, all in the gloomy but beautiful backdrop of a forgotten, past-haunted part of America. Novelistic in its scope, In the Valley of the Kings reveals an intricate portrait of the complexities of a single place. The Sabine Series in Literature

WILLIAM BLACK grew up in Northeastern Pennsylvania, and though he left as soon as he was admitted to college, he remained haunted by the area’s sometimes grim, melancholy past until he returned from stints in Alabama, the Pacific Northwest, Southern Ohio, and Baltimore to live in Scranton in 2009. His efforts to render the haunting into art have appeared in The Southern Review, Threepenny Review, The Sun Magazine, Crazyhorse, and elsewhere, and been recognized by the Maryland State Council for the Arts. He teaches in the MA in Writing Program at Johns Hopkins University.

Poems

James Jabar JAMES JABAR

The book Whatever Happened to Black Boys? is an exploration of black maleness in America through persona and form. Throughout the book, black boys from the past and present get to tell their stories, for better or worse, in a variety of different lyrical structures, as if they are singing their own autobiographical songs. Some of these lyrical structures include traditional forms such as sonnets, ghazals, and ekphrastic poems but others are a little more modern such as the definition poem, the choose your own adventure genre, and a poem that even utilizes Facebook likes. The personas used in this collection of poems range from fiction to real but also from the voices of activists themselves. What makes this collection what it is, is that there isn’t one singular archetype of black male experience, but many different variations and forms, which broadens the image of how black men are seen outside of the stereotypes and sometimes limiting ideas we are fed in media.

We Find Each Other in the Darkness Richard Boada

POEMS

RICHARD BOADA

The poems of We Find Each Other in the Darkness take inspiration from the Imagist tradition of Ezra Pound and William Carlos Williams. These poems emphasize an unraveling of localized places, such as the urbanization of Jackson, the rural Mississippi Delta, and the ecologically fragile Gulf Coast, through surreal and magically real points of view. In some ways these new poems are Southern Magical Realism. They work with an awareness reminiscent of the nonfiction essays of Walter Benjamin’s OneWay Street, and create dialectics of experiences about disparate peoples in far away and unfamiliar locations. The TRP Chapbook Series

RICHARD BOADA is the author of two poetry collections: The Error of Nostalgia, nominated for the 2014 Mississippi Institute of Arts and Letters Poetry Award, and Archipelago Sinking. He is a graduate of the Center for Writers at the University of Southern Mississippi. His poetry appears in The Southern Poetry Anthology, Urban Voices: 51 Poets / 51 Poems, Rhino, Crab Orchard Review, Poetry East, North American Review, and Third Coast, among others. Currently, he is Editor and Publications Coordinator of the Mississippi Legislature PEER Committee. 978-1-68003-216-1 paper $16.95 978-1-68003-217-8 ebook 51/4x81/2. 50 pp. Poetry. August

In The Shadow of Dora Patrick Hicks

In the Shadow of Dora spans two very different decades from the Nazi concentration camp of Dora-Mittelbau to the coast of central Florida in the late 1960s; the book tells the story of the real life intersections between the horror of the Third Reich’s V-2 rocket program and the wonderment of the Apollo missions. Eli Hessel, a brilliant young Jewish mathematician, finds himself deep beneath a mountain where he is forced to build Nazi rockets. When he is finally freed from this secret underground concentration camp, he immigrates to New York, studies astrophysics, and is recruited by NASA to help build the largest rocket ever to rise above a launch pad: the Saturn V. To his shock, though, he will be under the command of former Nazi scientists Wernher von Braun and Arthur Rudolph, both of who were at Dora. As America turns to the moon and cheers for rockets that lance the sky, Eli is swallowed up by the past and must cope with memories he thought were safely buried. This is a novel that asks questions about memory, morality, technology, and how the past influences the present. If we clamp down images of horror, will they always ignite and rise up on us? PATRICK HICKS is a dual-citizen of the United States and Ireland; he is the Writer-in-Residence at Augustana University in addition to being a faculty member at the MFA program at Sierra Nevada College.

A bilingual conversation

Borderland Mujeres

Julieta Corpus Katherine Hoerth Corinne McCormack-Whittemore Borderland Mujeres, a collaborative, bilingual conversation in poetry and art, depicts the multifaceted experiences of women living in the borderlands of deep south Texas. In this fraught political climate, much has been written about the U.S./Mexico border, but what about the people who call this place home? Three women, each with a different relationship to the borderlands offer their vision of the cultural, linguistic, and ecological landscape of a complex region that is full of both majestic beauty and stark reality. The resulting poems and images explore what it means to be a woman in this contested space and hope to spark questions and conversation about identity, feminisms, and the idea of crosscultural and cross-genre collaboration. Borderland Mujeres was created through a feminist collaborative process. In some instances, the images inspired the poems. In others, the poems inspired the images. Many pieces were born from conversations between the three women about everyday life. The process illustrates the complex relationship between languages, translation, and transference. This project is an example of how permeable borders can be, even in our fraught political landscape that seeks to reinforce the rigid boundaries that separate us. Borderland Mujeres offers a counter-narrative about the border to the dominant, masculinized and militarized narrative purported by politicians, the media, and literature written about the region and culture by outsiders. Taking inspiration from Gloria Anzaldua's Borderlands La Frontera, this approach uses a variety of styles-from montage, to imagaic, to narrative, and lyric to depict the experience of hybridity and diversity in the lives of women on the border. The images are layered, juxtaposed, and blended to document and visually express the vibrant, living experiences of womanhood in this space. Borderland Mujeres is a celebration of the beauty and strength of the diverse women who straddle different cultures, languages, and worlds. JULIETA CORPUS works as a bilingual translator from EM Editorial in Brownsville, Texas. KATHERINE HOERTH is an award-winning poet from Beaumont, Texas. CORINNE McCORMACK-WHITTEMORE is a visual artist living in McAllen, Texas.

Our black-robed everyday heroes

A valuable body of everyday history.

Collegiality and the Constitution: The Eastern District of Texas 1846 to 2006

Voices of East Texas

Bobby Johnson

Mark Barringer

Collegiality and the Constitution: The Eastern District of Texas 1846 to 2006 chronicles Article III judges, up through the civil rights era and more recently, who presided over the contentious issues of the day. They frequently faced tough decisions from tension between upholding unpopular laws which conflicted with the accepted social and legal norms of their times. Armed with the power to transform and make changes, this book portrays judges who leaped, untroubled and unhesitatingly, at the issues of the day. The result was community uproar, rejection, and ostracism. . . . This history recounts many seminal moments where the mettle of the person and the strength of their commitment to uphold and enforce the law of our land was tested. This book reflects that for decades following the 50s and 60s, dominant federal issues concerned the rights movement, civil rights, and its progeny. For the 100 years before the civil rights era, our courts handled routine disputes and cases while their major litigation addressed the great themes of our region’s and country’s progress. Subsequently, our Texas Eastern judges’ commitment to quick trials and resolutions helped transition and bridge the two distinct eras from civil rights to some of the largest class action, personal injury, and toxic tort lawsuits.

Voices of East Texas is a collection of plays written by Stephen F. Austin State University Professor Emeritus Dr. Bobby Johnson. Before creating the plays, Dr. Johnson accumulated five-hundred plus interviews dealing with East Texas, topics ranging from the region's agricultural roots to modern industrial development, with side trips to both world wars and cultural happenings. In this collection, Dr. Johnson's interviews have been used verbatim to preserve a sense of history, though some were edited for dramatic effect. Regardless, the collection is an accurate portrayal of the region and its people. DR. BOBBY JOHNSON is a retired professor emeritus of Stephen F. Austin State University.

All the LiveLong Day

New from Erin Elizabeth Smith

J.V. Brummels

Down

Erin Elizabeth Smith

Erin Elizabeth Smith’s Down is immediately a delight. Refreshing in its take on Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the reader discovers here the odd world and new experience that Smith draws them “down” into.  The fall that seems endless takes us into Tennessee, where “petals doodle lawns / like the drawings of girls” or where “grey squirrels / chase themselves into their trees.”  This isn’t exactly Lewis Carroll surrealism, but the narrator of these poems takes us into her incantations and dreamscapes, where suddenly she looks at her spouse lying on the sofa and sees “a foreign // thing, a stammering king / made kitten in the shaking.” Waking does not necessarily relieve the narrator, nor us.  Rather, she writes, “I am still falling / through the slippery leaves / every bit of anorexic ice, / still waking like a child roused / in the backseat, unsure where I am / in the fragile, new dark.”  And, like Alice, curiouser and curiouser, the trip down means we may rise up, that “it can heal us again.” 

JV Brummels’s newest collection, All the Live-Long Day, continues the legacy of a strong-voiced, strongarmed poetry. As the title suggests in a mocking, self-effacement, these are the poems of a man who has been working, perhaps not on the railroad, but in the classroom, in the fields, with his horses and his cattle.  Brummels’s poetry is simultaneously poised on humor and drop-dead seriousness, where “an education’s learning / how much to let slip / and when to let go.”  The “punchline” for a long working life is “I’ve made a life flirting with regret / For all my bitching I’m the man / I want to be.”  Who is that, then?  The man who admits that he’s a smart ass, a “whiskerless schoolmarm / trying to be / a thirty-foot hard-twist snake / of an arena rope, “ “a black cat in a back alley / behind a bar” before he tends to the business of branding.  And yet, for all that hard word and all that hard self-appraisal, the persona is able to “think machine and horsepower / and horse / I smell cow on the breeze.” 

ERIN ELIZABETH SMITH is the Creative Director at the Sundress Academy for the Arts and the Managing Editor of Sundress Publications and The Wardrobe. She is the author of two full-length collections and the editor of two anthologies, Political Punch: Contemporary Poems on the Politics of Identity and Not Somewhere Else But Here: Contemporary Poems on Women and Place. 

J. V. BRUMMELS' work has been recognized with a Literature Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Elkhorn Prize and the Mildred Bennett Award for contributions to the state's literature from the Nebraska Center for the Book. His Book of Grass was awarded the 2008 Nebraska Book Award for Poetry, and his Cheyenne Line and Other Poems was selected as one of 150 significant Nebraska books.

Naming the Lost: The Fresno Poets

I Have a Poem the Size of the Moon

Christopher Buckley

Philip Levine came to teach at Fresno State in 1958 and Peter Everwine followed in 1962; C.G. Hanclicek came in 1966 and the initial group of Fresno poets collected here became students and colleagues of theirs. Sadly, about one third of the poets in Naming the Lost are no longer with us. This book focuses then on the community of poets first coming through Fresno, beginning in the early 1960s, starting it all off. Naming the Lost: The Fresno Poets—Interviews & Essays, preserves an amazing nexus of poetic talent and fellowship, and documents the providence that brought so many outstanding poets to Fresno— early ’60s through the ’80s—a confluence and coincidence of talent and personalities unlikely to be seen again. Poet and editor CHRISTOPHER BUCKLEY earned his MFA from the University of California-Irvine. He is the author of over twenty collections of poetry and is professor emeritus at the University of CaliforniaRiverside. 978-1-62288-904-4 paper $22.00 6x9. 180 pp. Poetry. Literary Studies.

Matt Mason

I Have A Poem The Size Of The Moon is a book of poems about Nebraska. Not cornfields, not cows: Cities, highways, long drives and the political conversations simmering. Between Meteors and Fireflies In a drought year, corn stubble bends into Headlines: “Farmers pray for rain.” Tumbleweeds take time to harmonize and choreograph, somewhere between meteors and fireflies. The grocery sells blueberries all year round, but the charge card feels heavy as a refrigerator once you slip it from the wallet. You don’t end up buying the magazines, just browse. It’s a tow truck, doorbell button, garbage disposal broke summer: no real difference between a silo and a paper sack, it seems. And in the hallway, light glows from under the bathroom door. MATT MASON has published eight chapbooks and two full-length collections of poetry. He was named Nebraska State Poet, serving from 2019–2023.

What the Rivers Gather: Selected Poems

Milton Jordan

This new selected poems from noted historian Milton Jordan leads readers into the beautiful Idaho wilderness to Slate Creek where, “. . . the mountain casts its first shadow.” Jordan's poems infuse life with nature, with “sluggish gray beginnings” and the “sound of Linda Ronstadt” on a Saturday full of “miles of silence.” These tender, graceful, and profound moments where “the sound of billiards played without talent” lingers on the dust that settles high in Lodgepole pine. Jordan's verse is well-crafted, compact, expertly weaving truths and discoveries, across the Ohio countryside, a world shuttling between narrative and lyric. These are the poems of living, of what we carry with us, of what the rivers gather. MILTON JORDAN is a retired United Methodist Pastor and an avocational historian. He has edited several works on Texas History. This is his first collection of poetry. 978-1-62288-313-4 paper $20.00 6x9. 120 pp. Poetry. September

Paddy the Platypus

Sailing Against the Odds

Patricia Harris

When Paddy the Platypus leaves his home to find new friends, he is shocked to find that the other animals don’t want to play with him. A beaver, an otter, and a family of ducks each poke fun at Paddy because he looks so odd. But when a baby bird falls from its nest and Paddy catches it with his soft snout, the other animals realize Paddy’s differences are what make him so special. Paddy the Platypus is written in couplets, including a deliberate repetition of key phrases that young children can easily remember. The book is beautifully illustrated by Tristan Brewster-Arnold. PATRICIA HARRIS attended Texas Woman’s University, graduating with a Speech/Drama degree. She has authored two plays produced at Lamp-Lite Theater and currently works with ESL learners.

Carolyn Tollefson

Children’s author Carolyn Tollefson once again delights her readers by asking them to peer through the eyes of a mysterious gentleman entertaining young sailors with a story from his past, a quickchanging summer’s day when four boys charged with finding the perfect spot for an upcoming camping trip on a small island across Lake Winnebago learn that even the greatest of sailors face difficulty on the open water. Calm water and a brisk wind carry the boys hours away to an awaiting beach where the young men search for the perfect overnight spot for their summer-camp friends. But once the sun slips toward the water, and the boys set sail back to mainland, the wind shifts, carries them off course, and then stills. Night falls and a curtain of fog shrouds the lake as the boys are left to their own devices. Written in hauntingly lyrical prose and filled with beautifully rendered illustrations by graphic illustrator Tristan Brewster-Arnold, Sailing Against the Odds takes readers on a marvelous journey of friendship and survival. CAROLYN TOLLEFSON has loved writing since she was a child. She has written many stories about her adventures in life, her family, and poetry. She especially enjoys creating stories for children. Carolyn lives in Nacogdoches, the oldest town in Texas. 978-1-62288-900-6 paper $14.00 81/2x81/2. 32 pp. Young Readers. September

Deconstructed

An Insider’s View of Illegal Immigration and the Building Trades Loren Steffy with Stan Marek

Illegal immigration is among the most challenging and divisive issues facing America. With few changes in immigration laws since 1986, the undocumented population has swelled to an estimated 11 million. Deconstructed unravels these economic issues and their human toll through the eyes of Houston businessman Stan Marek, who’s watched the immigration crisis unfold over 40 years. A descendant of Czech immigrants himself, Marek runs one of the largest specialty subcontracting firms in the U.S. He has seen construction work devolve from offering middle-class careers to trapping illegal immigrants in the shadows of the economy— paid in cash, without overtime or access to health care. Marek sees a burgeoning crisis for his industry, the national economy and the undocumented immigrants themselves - a crisis he has vowed to prevent. In Deconstructed, award-winning business journalist Loren Steff y traces Marek’s own family history, intertwined with changes in immigration law for more than a century. Steff y examines the economic forces driving illegal immigration and outlines solutions that could enhance our economy, the construction business, and the lives of immigrants. LOREN STEFFY is a writer-at-large for Texas Monthly, executive producer for Rational Middle Media and managing director for the communications firm 30 Point Strategies, where he heads the 30 Point Press Publishing imprint. He is the author of four other nonfiction books. STAN MAREK is the president and chief executive officer of the Marek Family of Companies, one of the largest interior contractors in the Southwest. He is a frequent contributor to the Houston Chronicle and blogs such as Construction Citizen.
