From the Director This is a time of great dynamism and development at Texas Tech University Press. In the past few years, we not only have doubled the size of our staff, but we have also undertaken a series of exciting new projects and ventures. After completing our transition to Longleaf Services, Inc.—which included packing up and relocating our warehouse in summer 2019—we moved quickly to offer selected backlist titles in both ebook and print-on-demand formats. This has expanded the scope and reach of the Press and brought many of our titles to new and distant audiences. In addition to diversifying our modes of content delivery, we have significantly expanded our journals program, adding two new titles to our existing list: Issues in Interdisciplinary Studies and Western States Jewish History. We have also pursued two intra-University collaborations, publishing Life, Purpose, and Vision with the Health Sciences Center in celebration of their fiftieth anniversary and Raider Power with the Athletics Department in recognition of the Men’s Basketball team’s historic 2018–2019 season. Beyond these collaborations, we continue to pursue titles in our signature book series, including Rain in Our Hearts (Peace & Conflict Series), Crooked Bamboo (Peace & Conflict Series), and Opus in Brick and Stone (Grover E. Murray Studies in the American Southwest). Meanwhile, titles such as Gracious: Poems of the 21st Century South, At Close Range, Finding Karen, and Hanna, I Forgot to Tell You demonstrate the Press’s ongoing commitment to publishing the very finest literary works. The heart and soul of the Press, however, has long been and continues to be works that further our understanding of the history and culture of the American Southwest. On that front, we present a diverse array

of new titles, from the fifth edition of Winning 42 to A Haven in the Sun and “Don’t Count the Tortillas” to Between Two Rivers, Wilmettie, and Dark Eyes, Lady Blue. Finally, our deep commitment to expanding our list in the area of Indigenous Studies is evident in recent and forthcoming titles such as On Becoming Apache, A Sacred People, A Sovereign People, and “Help Indians Help Themselves.” So, it is a time of great dynamism and development, indeed. Please enjoy! – Brian L. Ott January 2020

Gracious Poems from the 21st Century South Edited by John Poch Introduction by Bryan Giemza “Though it is hard to define, there exists this thing we call Southern poetry. Much more so than Midwestern Poetry or Poetry of the Northwest or California Poetry. While the South, itself, might defy definition, poetry is even more seditious. Any poet must admit there is no clear definition of the word, poem. This is because poetry, a rebellious or merely curious child, always challenges its own making, testing its parents (while looking just like them) and striking out for new territory. Poetry’s anxiety of influence is undeniable, and this Freudian complexity is in some ways comforting, in others terrifying. Nevertheless, each poet is blessed or doomed to define a poem— by writing the next poem. Or by creating the next poetry anthology.” —From the prologue

An anthology of contemporary southern verse John Poch’s newly curated collection, Gracious: Poems of the 21st Century South, spotlights both emerging and notable voices from this poetry-rich region. This book promises to be the best and most influential anthology of Southern poetry published in over thirty years. Gracious steers away from stereotypical mockingbird-and-magnolia verse and instead amplifies a variety of lyric voices covering a wide breadth of Southern experience. Bryan Giemza’s timely introduction situates the anthology among the current discourse in Southern studies. Gracious features the work of some of our best-known poets alongside those who have just published their first books. In all, there are eighty-four poets included whose work moves both the heart and the intellect. At the conclusion of this collection, many of the poets also provide a brief exposition of what they believe defines the South and/or Southern poetry. Gracious is, in the end, a new poetic geography, a book that strives to define Southern poetry for a generation to come. It is a book intended not only for the classroom; it aims to capture the imaginations of readers of all ages and backgrounds.

John Poch’s poems have appeared in Poetry, Paris Review, Yale Review, The Nation, and other magazines. In 2019, he published two collections of poems: Texases (WordFarm) and Between Two Rivers (TTU Press). He is President’s Excellence Research Professor in the English Department at Texas Tech.

At Close Range A Memoir of Tragedy and Advocacy Leesa Ross “I respect everybody’s right to own a gun in America. I’m a member of the NRA. I don’t understand why our schools and our churches and our communities don’t require us to teach and learn gun safety. It’s as if handguns are being sold everywhere without safeties. There’s nothing that can be built into a gun to make it safer. There’s only us.” —From the book

Charting a mother’s journey from grief to gun safety advocacy Leesa Ross did not expect to write a book. Neither did she expect the tragedy that her family endured, a horrific and sudden death that led her to write At Close Range. Her debut memoir is the story of what happened after her son Jon died in a freak gun accident at a party. Ross unsparingly shares the complexities of grief as it ripples through the generations of her family, then chronicles how the loss of Jon has sparked a new life for her as a prominent advocate for gun safety.

Leesa Ross is a debut author who’s transformed a tragedy into a mission for safety. After losing a son to a shooting accident, she formed Lock Arms for Life, an educational organization teaching gun safety. A Texas mother of three, she leads Lock Arms, sits on the board of Texas Gun Sense, and belongs to the NRA.

Before the accident, Ross never had a motivation to consider the role that guns played in her life. Now, she revisits ways in which guns became a part of everyday life for her three sons and their friends. Gun culture is strong in Texas and North Carolina, places where Ross raised her sons. The privileged circles where the Ross family lives were friendly to guns, but this kind of tragedy was not supposed to happen in a world protected by a comfortable bubble. Ross’s attitude towards guns is thorny. She has collectors and hunters in her family. To balance her advocacy, she joined both Moms Demand Action and the NRA. Through At Close Range, the national conversation about gun control plays out in one family’s catalyzing moment and its aftermath. However, At Close Range ultimately shows one mother’s effort to create meaning from tragedy and find a universally reasonable position and focal point: gun safety and responsible ownership.

Get close with At Close Range author Leesa Ross the

unthinkable

tragedy

that changed Leesa Ross’s life upended her priorities and pulled her into the conversation about guns in America. At Close Range spotlights a gun accident of a kind that Ross knows gun owners can do more to prevent. The gun conversation is pretty polarized. What do you think gets lost in all the noise? Is there anything about guns you think we can all agree about? Training, awareness, and education can save more lives than gun control. We can agree on safety as essential. Many more people die from accidents than from mass shootings. The attention goes to the tragic and widespread attacks. Suicides account for many more gun deaths. Eighty-eight people a day die from gun suicides. Veteran deaths account for 21 of those. All gun violence is tragic, but a gun tragedy is often not violent. Attacks and assaults are a different event than accidental deaths and suicides. The effort to control gun ownership is a difficult one. An effort to make guns safer, and their owners more responsible and accountable, will deliver benefits with far less opposition. Both may be required, but safety is the lower-hanging fruit in a complex orchard. Owners can be the greatest force for good, and for love, in a world now at closer range to guns than ever. The most dangerous gun to Americans is a handgun. AK-style rifles only account for 3 percent of gun deaths. Gun violence demands that we keep kids safe in schools. But in places where crimes are not being committed, we need to keep them safe in the streets and in homes, too.

also educate lawmakers about gun safety and encourage state-level participation in and funding for gun safety programs. You write about the need for parents to have a follow-up to “the talk” with their kids — one about guns instead of sex. Why is a conver­ s­ation about guns just as important? What age should this start? What needs to be said? Like drunk driving, or unsupervised swimming pool use, my message of using commonsense habits for ownership, as well as protection from unauthorized firearm use, is at the heart of the talk with kids about gun safety. Lock Arms for Life stresses that this talk can’t start too early — but it must continue into teenaged and young adult years. We recognize that adolescent thinking and behaviors continue into a person’s mid-20s. That age is one where gun ownership is legal, so more gun accidents can occur and can be prevented. Some owners talk about storage, but they can bring this talk into a larger community. They are the authorities on responsible use. What needs to be said are the rules of Get ACTIVE. We want to meet gun owners where they already are: respecting Second Amendment rights and acknowledging that ownership is less likely to change among current owners. The ownership might be a family tradition, which makes it a different situation from reducing deaths from drunk driving or smoking deaths.

I hope that accountability about ownership will be as essential as ammunition

Can you talk a little bit about your organization and its goals? Lock Arms for Life is devoted to making gun ownership less deadly to owners and bystanders. It uses an educational program, Get ACTIVE, to give owners, families and friends the safety practices that save lives. Lock Arms for Life distributes gun locks and promotes a safety pledge for the young adults and students who attend our presentations. We

What do you hope people take away from At Close Range? Owning a gun is more than a right. It’s a responsibility that demands safety awareness. It’s an awareness about love and safety. You can always give one, but never be completely certain about the other. I want the book to influence everyday firearm storage norms. By showing the advocacy through the story of a family, we want to influence families to adopt safer ownership and practices. I want readers to see that even a tragic death from a gun accident can propel positive advocacy — and that taking action is the best way to make a preventable death count for something that can save the lives of others. I hope that firearm storage talks will become normal among families and friends and owners of guns. The lessons about responsible ownership should be taught in schools, in churches, and at dinner tables. I hope that accountability about ownership will be as essential as ammunition for a weapon. Guns protect lives, and so does gun safety. Owning a handgun for protection means that guns are more likely to be stored loaded, so safer practices are crucial to unintended use and accidental deaths. We can leave a legacy to our younger generations with safety practices that are directly wired into gun ownership. We can also prevent suicides by securing guns, so that our efforts contribute to better mental health.

A Haven in the Sun Five Stories of Bird Life and Its Future on the Texas Coast B. C. Robison Illustrated by Linda M. Feltner “B. C. Robison has affectionately brought to life his discovery and love for our shared natural heritage. A Haven in the Sun reminded me of a spring sunrise on the Texas Coast, familiar, warm, and brimming with hope of what may come.”

—Richard Gibbons, Houston Audubon Conservation Director

The history of the Texas coast told through the bird species that inhabit it In A Haven in the Sun, nature writer B. C. Robison, author of Birds of Houston and the long-running “Texas Naturalist” column in The Houston Post, presents a unique portrayal of birds of the Texas Coast. Through the stories of birds that have a special bond with coastal Texas — Attwater’s Prairie Chicken, White-tailed Hawk, Whooping Crane, Redhead, and migratory shorebirds and songbirds — Robison shows not only the importance of the Texas Coast to North American bird life but also the intimate dependence of coastal birds on our use of the land.

B. C. Robison wrote the “Texas Naturalist” column for The Houston Post. With careers as a small animal veterinarian and an environmental consultant, he has spent forty years birdwatching along the Texas Coast. Born and raised in Houston, he lives in Katy, Texas, with his wife Middy Randerson. Generously supported by the Houston Museum of Natural Science

At the heart of these stories lies the natural landscape and an account of how we have altered it to the benefit or harm of our native birds. The Laguna Madre, the great ranches of South Texas, the marshes of Aransas, the coastal prairie, and the famed migratory sanctuaries of Bolivar Flats and the oak woods of High Island have all played a vital role in our vibrant coastal bird life. Throughout the book, Robison asks several crucial questions: How can there be enough room for birds and people in the crowded world of the Texas Coast? Will we be endowed with this panorama of bird life twenty-five or fifty years from now? What can we do to help preserve this rich natural heritage?

Why Birding is Good for You, with B. C. Robison b. c. robison’s career

as the “Texas Naturalist” columnist was a nuisance to many of the big developmental pro­ jects that currently dot the Texas Coast. His new book A Haven in Sun tells the story of how we share the natural environment of birds and how both of our habitats have changed and will continue to change. With the dozens of outstanding books available on Texas bird life, what does A Haven in the Sun offer that is different? This book presents stories of Texas coastal birds as they relate to the human landscape and the ways in which our use of the land has either harmed or nurtured that bird life. As our coastal regions and wildlife today face an ever-growing threat from development and climate change, it is important to understand how our stewardship of the land can help preserve a vital natural heritage, for not only resident birds but also for migratory species from throughout the Western Hemisphere. A Haven in the Sun, through its stories of birds that are unique to coastal Texas — the Whooping Crane, the Whitetailed Hawk, and others — asks the questions that we should be considering for the preservation of our very special native bird life and the habitats that support them.

Our stewardship of the land can help preserve a vital natural heritage

How have you seen the Texas Coast change in your lifetime? There have been enormous changes in the coastal environment over the years, primarily from commercial and industrial development. Housing, highways, agriculture, retail establishments, and industrial facilities have grown tremendously the past several decades, often at the expense of natural habitat for birds. Open, sandy areas where I

watched Black Skimmers and shorebirds while visiting my grandmother in Corpus Christi have long since been paved over. There are stretches of beach along Bolivar Peninsula that have practically vanished. But many places have survived; the vast and beautiful salt marsh at the entrance of the Galveston causeway, where I began birdwatching in the 1970s, is still there in all its green, marshy glory. I must admit that I don’t think of birding as a young person’s hobby. Make your pitch: why should more people do this? Bird watching is simply a lot of fun. But it’s more than fun, it’s educational. And I have always felt that learning things, things that interest and excite you, is a very high form of entertainment. When people become aware of the beauty and diversity of bird life, birding can become a lifelong pursuit. One of the greatest threats the natural world faces for its preservation is the diminishing connection between people and nature. Birding is a fun, easy, and effective way to make that connection. The book mentions many bird-rich locations. What are some others you enjoy, in Texas and elsewhere? My favorite Texas birding area outside the coast is Big Bend National Park. Not only is the harsh desert environment so alluring and different from the humid coast, the bird life there is unique. The Colima Warbler and the Lucifer Hummingbird are unique Big Bend species, as are many others. I have searched out the Golden-Cheeked Warbler in the Hill Country. On a trip to Alaska, I saw Bald Eagles practically everywhere, almost like grackles in a grocery store parking lot. And on one cold twilight evening in the lodgepole pines of Yellowstone National Park, I saw a Great Gray Owl, perched on a limb and glaring balefully at me. That was a spiritual moment.

Winning 42 Strateg y & Lore of the National Game of Texas, 5th Edition Dennis Roberson “This is the best introduction to the game it seems possible to make: clear, simple instructions and lots of examples and illustrations—and several chapters to advise the experts.” —A. C. Greene

A fifth edition of the ultimate book on the domino game of 42, a Texas tradition There are two types of people in Texas: those who play 42 and those who need to learn. Winning 42 is written for both. A team game that no one tires of, 42 does not rely mostly on luck or memory. Skill and strategy separate the best from the rest. Veterans who relish the logic of each domino played will find challenge in the advanced chapters and fascination in the history and lore. Many who’ve grown up with 42 are nonetheless surprised by its utterly Texan heritage, reaching back over a century and a quarter. Beginners will find easy instruction in all the basics, from bidding a hand or setting an opponent to the challenge of the 84 hand, and all readers can advance at their own pace. Replete with championship statistics and stories from veteran players and strategists—including many celebrities from astronauts to presidents—Winning 42 illuminates a cherished tradition that links Texans from all walks of life. Dennis Roberson is a freelance writer and fulltime executive in sports event management. A lifelong player of 42, avid hiker, and traveler, Roberson lives in Fort Worth, where for three decades he has helped manage Texas’ most famous professional golf event, The Colonial National Invitation Tournament / Charles Schwab Challenge.

The National Game of Texas, Explained After being passed down orally in Texas for six generations, 42 belongs in the Great Game Hall of Fame. It is already the Official Domino Game of the State of Texas! Basically a card game played with dominoes, it has challenged and entertained friends and families for more than 130 years. In the late 1880s, when strict religious protocol dictated card playing was the devil’s work, two young boys invented a domino game that plays like a card game, about 45 miles west of Fort Worth. And it was a gem—probably the best table game ever invented. They taught it to their families and neighbors, who taught it to their neighbors and co-workers, and so on—until it spread across the entire state like wildfire. Not only a strategic game, it is also a great fun and social game. It was played in homes, churches, and lunch rooms, at feed stores, train stations, and of course domino parlors. Enthusiasts could play it for hours on end. And yes, now there is an app for that. While born and initially fanned mostly in rural Texas, the game was taken up quickly by city slickers as well. Farmers, ranchers, blue-collar, white-collar, men, women, young, old—all walks of life have ultimately embraced the game over the decades. An annual state championship tournament has been played in Hallettsville for the last 40 years! Everyday Texans, even some who grew up to be famous, have cherished the game’s place in their lifelong family memories. Astronaut Robert Crippen, George and Laura Bush, Willie Nelson and B. J. Thomas, J. J. “Jake” Pickle, and Lyndon Baines Johnson were all 42 players. Winning 42 is the first and only comprehensive book ever published on the history of the game and how to play it well. Yes, this book will teach you to play the game from scratch. And it will regale you with great stories and memories from some of its avid players. It is listed in the recently published “101 Essential Books of Texas.” 42 is a team game, where two teams of two people play each other. A standard 28-piece set of dominoes is used. For each hand, players draw seven dominoes each and then determine whether their hand supports a strong bid, for controlling the trumps of that hand. People who play the card game of Spades will find this idea familiar, but unlike Spades, there is not only one trump suit—there are seven potential different trump suits (blanks, aces, deuces, etc.). Adding to the fun and complexity, as opposed to a playing card belonging to only one suit, each domino belongs to two suits (except the doubles). Bidding is based on points, and 42 are available each hand. Players capture points by winning tricks with “count” dominoes on them— these are any domino whose face value is a multiple of five: double-five, six-four, fiveblank, three-deuce, four-ace. These all add up to 35 points, plus one point for each individual trick equals 42. Though an individual player wins the bid each hand, they and their partner work together to win all the points necessary for the team. No Texas library is complete without a copy of Winning 42, and no Texas life is truly complete until it includes playing 42. —Dennis Roberson TT UPRESS.O RG

Rain in Our Hearts Alpha Company in the Vietnam War James Allen Logue Gary D. Ford “A canyon yawns between those who went to the war, and those who did not. In Cove, Oregon, Gerald Parlmele tapped one of Jim’s black-and-white photographs, and said, ‘When I look at this, I see the war in color. You see it only in black and white.’” —From the preface

The story of Alpha Company in words and pictures

James Allen Logue was drafted during college and served in Vietnam as an infantryman. Along with his rifle, Logue carried a camera. He took pictures throughout his deployment, most notably during the savage fighting near Hiep Duc in May 1970. Gary D. Ford, a native of Kilgore, Texas, and graduate of The University of Texas at Austin, spent thirty years as travel editor and senior writer at Southern Living Magazine. He is contributor to several books and author of I Remember the Difficult Times: World War II Recollections from Shreveport, Louisiana, 2013. He lives in Lanett, Alabama.

Rain in Our Hearts takes readers into Alpha Company, 4/31, 196th LIB, Americal Division in 1969–1970. Jim Logue, a professional photographer, was drafted and served as an infantryman; he also carried a camera. “In order to take my mind off the war,” he would say, “I took pictures.” Logue’s photos showcase the daily lives of infantrymen: setting up a night laager, chatting with local children, making supply drops, and “humping” rucksacks miles each day in search of the enemy. His camera records the individual experiences and daily lives of the men who fought the war. Accompanying Logue’s photographs is the narrative written by Gary Ford. Wanting to reconstruct the story of Alpha Company during the time in which Logue served, Ford and Logue trekked across America to meet with and interview every surviving member whom they could locate and contact. The effect is a panoply of lives depicted as they intersected with America’s most polarizing war. Each chapter of Rain in Our Hearts focuses on the viewpoint and life of one member of Alpha Company, including aspects of his life before and after Vietnam. The story of the Company’s movements and missions over the year unfold as readers are introduced to one soldier at a time. Taken together, Rain in Our Hearts offers readers a window into the words and sights of Alpha Company’s Vietnam War.

A chapter book about a family’s journey from Texas to New Mexico at the beginning of the twentieth century Wilmettie is a middle-reader work of historical fiction from awardwinning children’s author Sue Houser. Wilmettie is the story of one family’s covered-wagon journey from West Texas to New Mexico Territory in the early 1900s. When Wilmettie’s stepfather decides to follow his dream and claim a homestead of his own, Wilmettie’s younger brothers are excited about the journey. But twelve-year-old Wilmettie is reluctant to leave her familiar surroundings and the grandmother she loves.

On Becoming Apache Harry Mithlo Conger Beasley Jr. “We are the First People, and now you are one of us. When they ask you who you are, you tell them that you are a Chiricahua Apache, alive and living right here. Right here. Now. In this place and time.” —From the book

A spiraling exploration of Apache life, mythology, and identity This is the story of Watson Mithlo, Chiricahua Apache, his family, and his life. Watson’s story embodies the life of the Chiricahua Apache people, who in 1886 were forced into exile to Fort Marion, Florida, by the US government and were considered prisoners of war until 1914. This story tells Watson’s lived history as the Chiricahua were relocated from Arizona to Florida to Alabama and finally to Fort Sill, Oklahoma.

Harry Mithlo, enrolled citizen of the Comanche Nation and Chiricahua Apache son of Watson Mithlo, is an active cattle rancher. He is a retired educator who served on the Comanche Nation Business Committee as an elected official. He resides in Lawton, Oklahoma, with his wife Juanita Pahdopony in the heart of Comanche country. Conger Beasley Jr. published over a dozen books, many dealing with the history of the American West. He won the Western Writers of America Spur Award in nonfiction in 1995 for We Are a People of This World and the Thorpe Menn Award for Literary Excellence in 1991 for Sundancers and River Demons.

But this is also a story of Harry Mithlo, Watson’s son, and Conger Beasley, Harry’s friend. It is a story of telling a story. The three voices that serve as our narrators — Watson, Harry, and Conger — all contribute information and emotions, caught up in a kind of ongoing, never-ending, simultaneous present. This story is a composite, a mosaic, a song. It is imbued with oral tradition, Apache medicine, and the dance of the Chiricahua Mountain Spirits. Through Watson, Harry, and Conger, one man’s life becomes a circle, blending history with the sacred in the telling of a distinctly Native story.

An excerpt from On Becoming Apache The sand-colored brick Indian United Methodist Church, located on the south bank of Cache Creek outside the rural town of Apache, Oklahoma, can barely contain the crowd of people who have come to pay their respects to Watson “Bill” Mithlo, Chiricahua Apache Prisoner of War, as he lies in a steel-blue casket. The sanctuary filled early with mourners on a sweltering July afternoon in 1993, and now the crowd has spilled onto the grounds outside the church. The people have come to see the family; the people have come to see the mourners; the people have come to see the remains of this venerable 107-year-old Apache warrior, medicine man, cowboy, rancher, historian, story-teller, husband and father — my Dad — put to rest in Mother Earth. The people packed inside the church are dressed in a variety of clothes, from colorful native dress to casual blue jeans to formal business suits. They have come from all over the country, from all directions where the four winds blow. They crowd into the church until it seems as if the church can’t hold any more, and still they come. As the service begins, they press closer to the open back walls and side doors of the church, straining to hear what the Reverend Sam Batise, a Choctaw Indian Methodist minister, is saying as he opens the service in our native Apache language. The people inside join him in singing the ancient hymns, which rise and fall on the mournful drift of their unaccompanied voices. Inside the church, sitting with my family in a front-row seat, I watch my brother, Melvin Mithlo, a young medicine man, bless our father with sacred pollen husked from cattail stalks. His long, black braids sway with his body as he bends over the casket. Melvin is dressed in a black shirt, blue jeans, and polished boots. He wears a black scarf, the sign of a medicine man, tied with a special knot that hangs loosely around his neck. Otherwise there is no adornment — Apache medicine men don’t wear necklaces or pins. I watch my older brother Roy as he moves through the crowd of mourners, talking and shaking hands. He’s meeting new people at the same time that he’s renewing old friendships. He has a camera, and now and then he pauses to take pictures. My son Michael Mithlo greets many of the mourners as they press forward, quietly and respectfully, to obtain a final glimpse of Watson Mithlo. Michael smiles as he brushes the tears from his eyes. All the brothers, sisters, and grandchildren are here to commemorate this solemn event. I see my father lying in the coffin in front of me: in sleep, at rest, in peace. He lies on a warm Indian blanket. He wears a snap-button gray shirt, black leather vest, and blue jeans. A white Stetson hat sits on his shoulder. His feet are shod in a pair of new Nocona boots.

Finding Karen An Ancestral Mystery Dorothy Allred Solomon “Karen was the first in her family to join an American-born religion and immigrate to the new world. She was part of that great wave of western migration, the gathering of those who were building a promised land in America. What follows combines two journeys: Karen’s and my own as I came to know her better.” – From the book

A journey of discovery—both of ancestral past and personal present

Author, teacher, communication trainer, and life coach, Dorothy Allred Solomon wrote the groundbreaking memoir, In My Father’s House, recounting her polygamous family’s history of exile and persecution. Subsequent works have also received awards and recognition. In 2020, she will attend University of Nevada, Las Vegas as the Black Mountain Institute Creative Nonfiction fellow.

Since her groundbreaking memoir In My Father’s House (Franklin Watts 1984, TTUP 2009), in which she recounts her agonizing break from fundamentalist polygamy, Dorothy Allred Solomon has continued to publish on the lives of Mormon women and the dissonance many experience in connection to fundamentalist pasts. The more Solomon delved into issues of agency, the more she felt her own dissonance and began to look for answers in her ancestral past—those early women she knew only through family stories. Finding Karen: An Ancestral Mystery springs from a decade of research into Solomon’s paternal great-great grandmother Karen Sorensen Rasmussen, who converted to Mormonism in Denmark and emigrated to the United States in 1859. Held up to Solomon throughout childhood as an icon of feminine heroism, a stoic handcart immigrant who helped establish Zion in Utah, Karen became equally emblematic of Solomon’s own strong-willed determination and of everything Solomon found lacking in herself. Finding Karen is a revelatory journey, twinned with Solomon’s own in surprising ways. As valuable a study in recovering history as it is in the need to reexamine family stories, Solomon’s retelling takes readers through the twists and turns of discovery/recovery as she encounters them. In doing so, she illuminates not only the risk inherent in trusting even what abides as historic record but also the insights to be gained from assiduous persistence.

Dark Eyes, Lady Blue María of Ágreda Marilyn H. Fedewa “Her life’s journey was before her. It would draw her into the wondrous world of the spirit, and the halls of power. It would take her to the New World and back. And yet she would never once leave her village. Her prayers would grow mystical, her writing visionary, even as the strength of her spirit would be tested in a world controlled by men.” —From the introduction

The story of one mystical woman’s far-reaching legacy Dark Eyes, Lady Blue tells the story of Sister María of Ágreda’s remarkable life. María was born in Ágreda, Spain, in 1602 and vowed as a nun there at age seventeen. From birth to her death in 1665, she never left the small town. Yet her accomplishments had a lasting impact in Spain and as far away as the American Southwest, where she is celebrated to this day. Although cloistered in Ágreda’s Monastery of the Immaculate Conception, María grew to be a renowned mystic, a widely read author, and an adviser to the King of Spain. She experienced religious ecstasy that inspired her visionary writings and — quite remarkably — communications with the Jumano Indians of what would later become the states of Texas and New Mexico. When Spanish missionaries met the Jumano Indians, their chief expressed a desire to be baptized because of the supernatural visits from the mystical “lady in blue.” This fresh telling of María’s story is one that will appeal to readers young and old and provides an unforgettable perspective on early American exploration of Texas and New Mexico.

Marilyn H. Fedewa has a background in teaching, communications, and political science. She served in higher education administration at Pepperdine University and Michigan State University and as vice president of Olivet College. She has published two prior books, including an award-winning biography of María of Ágreda, the “Lady in Blue.”

Hanna, I Forgot to Tell You A Novel Estelle Glaser Laughlin “Invariably, when I sit down to write about a subject that catches my curiosity, I find myself sidetracked and catapulted back to the time and places that shaped who I am, to events both sublime and the horrid, but never fail to teach me that suffering does not have to drive you to anger and despair. It can teach you to love more deeply and to be compassionate.” —From Author’s Note

Malka attempts to escape the horrors of the Holocaust by hiding out in the Christian neighborhood of Warsaw Hanna, I Forgot to Tell You is a historical novel written by Estelle Laughlin, a Holocaust survivor. Laughlin grew up in Warsaw before she was deported to multiple Nazi death camps, from which she was eventually liberated in January 1945.

Estelle Glaser Laughlin, a child survivor of the Warsaw Ghetto, the Uprising, and concentration camps, immigrated to America at eighteen. With only three years of public school education, she earned a master’s degree in education. After retirement from a long career in teaching in Maryland, she has continued to write and lecture widely about her experience and survival.

This book is an imaginging of what might have been. Malka, a teenaged Jewish girl in the Warsaw ghetto, is smuggled into the Christian neighborhood and given a new identity. The novel highlights a historically accurate Holocaust narrative not frequently told: that a small number Jewish children were smuggled into Christian families in neighborhoods that immediately abutted the confined ghetto. Laughlin describes the harrowing process of trying to obtain false identity papers and secreting away through an underworld of smugglers and black marketeers. Malka learns to navigate this world while some family and friends find ways to trade for extra food and others disappear and are never heard from again. A beautiful and solemn story of survival, Hanna, I Forgot to Tell You counts the costs for those who made it to the other side of an impossibly dark moment of history.

Opus in Brick and Stone The Architectural and Planning Heritage of Texas Tech University Brian H. Griggs Foreword by Richard Kagan “Everything that is done on these West Texas Plains ought to be on a big scale. It is a country that lends itself to bigness. It is a country that does not harmonize with things little or narrow or mean. Let us make the work of our college fit in with the scope of our country. Let our thinking be in world-wide terms.” —Paul Whitfield Horn, first TTU President, from his 1923 address

How a Spanish architectural tradition made its way to the Llano Estacado Opus in Brick and Stone: The Architectural and Planning Heritage of Texas Tech University explores the campus architecture of the Texas Tech University System, which was inspired by the sixteenth-century Plateresque Spanish Renaissance architectural style. This book details the parallels between the buildings of Texas Tech and those of their forebears from this relatively short period in Spanish architectural history, while exploring the remarkable stories behind the construction itself. A crucial element of Opus in Brick and Stone is to provide a visual chronicle of the campus’s unique architectural style. In addition to historic and contemporary photography, the book also includes a comparative drawing section that, through original common scale drawings, explores in detail historic design sources alongside their campus counterparts. Through the stories of these structures and the biographies of key figures from the history, readers come to understand how it was only through the vision of specific individuals that this fascinating architectural heritage came to be situated upon the plains of West Texas.

Brian H. Griggs (AIA) is a Principal at Parkhill, Smith, & Cooper’s Amarillo Office in the Higher Education Sector. His architectural expertise includes collegiate and multi-facility master planning, charrette coordination, pre-design programming of higher educational facilities, and the design of instructional, laboratory, student life, and residential facilities for community colleges, CTE institutions, and universities. He is a 2014 recipient of the William Caudill Award from the Texas Society of Architects. Publication made possible by the generous support of The CH Foundation and Parkhill, Smith, & Cooper.

The architectural history of Texas Tech University is a carefully crafted, purposeful history. Opus in Brick and Stone celebrates and elevates this little-known history into a tradition that can be appreciated by all Red Raiders.

Crooked Bamboo A Memoir from Inside the Diem Regime Nguyen Thai Edited by Justin Simundson Foreword by Larry Berman “Crooked Bamboo offers a fascinating spotlight from an eyewitness to one of the most tumultuous and critical periods for the American war in Vietnam. Those looking for key turning points in history can start with Nguyen Thai’s observations on the failures of the Diem regime to build legitimacy, its ultimate demise, and the turmoil that followed.” —Larry Berman, from the foreword

An insider’s account of the downfall of South Vietnam

Justin Simundson earned his PhD in History from Texas Tech University, where he works in the Office of International Affairs and teaches for the History Department. Nguyen Thai served Ngo Dinh Diem as a personal aide and as Director General of Vietnam Press. He also founded The Times of Vietnam. After being awarded an Associate Nieman Fellowship in Journalism at Harvard, he left Diem’s service and went on to publish Is South Vietnam Viable? to speak out against the Diem regime.

While much has been written about South Vietnam’s Ngo Dinh Diem regime, few were in a better place to understand its potential and lay bare its shortcomings than Nguyen Thai. In Crooked Bamboo, Thai provides an essential insider’s account of the Diem regime and the political turmoil that followed it. Throughout his memoir, Thai’s candid inquiry into what he witnessed helps pry open and reconsider fundamental questions about the Vietnam War and about leadership in times of turmoil. Nguyen Thai served Diem prominently as Director General of Vietnam Press and as a close personal aide and translator. Thai gradually grew disillusioned with the regime, but it took him years to extract himself from its service. After fleeing the country, Thai became a vocal critic of Diem and published a book exposing the inner workings of the regime. Following the November 1963 coup when Diem was overthrown and assassinated, Thai was pulled back to Saigon and took a position in the new junta’s government, but he quickly realized nothing had changed for the better. He quit government work and went into private business. After a close brush with death, Thai realized that South Vietnam was doomed, although he continued to get drawn into South Vietnam’s political intrigues.

A Sacred People AB Indigenous Governance, Traditional Leadership, and the Warriors of the Cheyenne Nation

A Sovereign People Indigenous Nationhood, Traditional Law, and the Covenants of the Cheyenne Nation A two-volume set by Leo K. Killsback “These books are needed, for there is very little analysis of the Cheyenne tribal lifeway, experience, and history from the people themselves. Killsback is a Cheyenne tribal citizen familiar with place, events, culture, and language because he is a part of it. His national perspective is a complement to be added to the many such works about Indians from non-native scholars.”

Leo Killsback

—Elizabeth Cook-Lynn

Forefronting a new wave of American Indian and Indigenous studies Before an indigenous people can decolonize, Leo Killsback explains, they must first understand what the world was like before colonization. Such understanding allows indigenous people to generate realistic goals and achieve positive change, reinventing themselves into people and nations who can honor original ways without corrupting or disgracing them.

A AB Sovereign People

Indigenous Nationhood, Traditional Law, and the Covenants of the Cheyenne Nation

In these volumes, Killsback, a citizen of the Northern Cheyenne Nation, reconstructs and rekindles an ancient Cheyenne world — ways of living and thinking that became casualties of colonization and forced assimilation. Spanning more than a millennium of antiquity and recovering stories and ideas interpreted from a Cheyenne worldview, the works’ joint purpose is rooted as much in a decolonization roadmap as it is in preservation of culture and identity for the next generations of Cheyenne people. Dividing the story of the Cheyenne Nation into pre- and post-contact, A Sacred People and A Sovereign People lay out indigenously conceived possibilities for employing traditional worldviews to replace unhealthy and dysfunctional ones bred of territorial, cultural, and psychological colonization. Together these volumes use an ancient past to confront long-standing challenges and to speak to the future.

Leo K. Killsback grew up on the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation and teaches American Indian Studies at Arizona State University. Devoted to the preservation and resurgence of Cheyenne language and culture, he sustains relationships within his nation by means of the collaborative methodologies that neither exploit nor marginalize.

“Help Indians Help Themselves” The Later Writings of Gertrude Simmons Bonnin (Zitkala-Ša) Edited by P. Jane Hafen Foreword by Margaret Noodin “To have Zitkala-Ša’s social manifestos and legal opinions gathered in one place is an incredible gift to readers of indigenous legal and cultural history in the United States.” — Margaret Noodin, from the foreword

An essential collection of writings and speeches by a preeminent American Indian activist Zitkala-Ša, also known as Gertrude Simmons Bonnin, was born on the Yankton Sioux reservation in 1876 and went on to become one of the most influential American Indian writer/activists of the twentieth century. “Help Indians Help Themselves”: The Later Writings of Gertrude Simmons Bonnin (Zitkala-Ša) is a critical collection of primary documents written by Bonnin and expands the published work of Zitkala-Ša, adding insight to a life of writing and political activism on behalf of American Indians in the early twentieth century. Edited by P. Jane Hafen, “Help Indians Help Themselves” documents Bonnin’s passion for justice in Indian America and outlines the broad scope of her life’s work. In the American Indian Magazine, the publication of the Society of American Indians, through her work for the National Council of American Indians, and through rigorous congressional testimony, Bonnin developed her emphasis, as Hafen writes, on “resistance, tribal nationalism, land rights and call for civil rights.” Through these writings, in newsletters, and in voluminous correspondence—most of which have never before been published—Bonnin advocates tirelessly for “the Indian Cause.”

Printed cotton sacks are currently fashionable aspects for material culture research, particularly in the costume and quilt history communities. Beginning in the late nineteenth century through the 1960s, these massproduced sacks were relied upon by rural America as a valuable source of free fabric for clothing, quilts, and home décor. White cotton sacks were ubiquitous beginning in the last half of the nineteenth century; sacks printed with designs would come onto the market in 1937. Large households and farms required significant quantities of flour, sugar, and other staples, as well as animal feed, particularly chicken feed, all of which began to be packaged in cotton sacks at the beginning of the twentieth century. As the use of cotton sacks increased, whether the sacks were used to package human consumables or animal feed, these fabrics became colloquially known as “feed sacks.” In 2015, more than 5,600 printed cotton sack pieces came into the holdings of the Museum of Texas Tech University in the Pat L. Nickols Cotton Sack Research Collection. The Nickols Collection includes white sacks, printed partial and whole cotton sacks, swatches of printed sacks, instructional booklets, garments, quilts, quilt tops, and decorated white sacks. Combined with earlier and subsequent individual donations, the almost 6,000 feed sack pieces held by the Museum of TTU make this the largest collection of feed sack materials to be assembled by an American museum, and likely the largest such collection in public hands. The Nickols Collection was brought to the museum in support of research, thus this publication serves both to showcase the breadth of the Pat L. Nickols Printed Cotton Sack Research Collection and as a comprehensive visual archive for these important artifacts of rural American material culture.

Our impact today reaches far beyond West Texas. Indeed, our folks are literally impacting lives around the globe.” —Tedd L. Mitchell, MD, from the foreword

A celebration of fifty years of achievement by the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center On May 27, 1969, Texas Governor Preston Smith signed into law House Bill No. 498, establishing a school of medicine at Texas Technological College in Lubbock. The governor had long seen the need for educating and training high-quality doctors and medical professionals to serve the West Texas region, and many able hands and hearts set about making this important vision into a reality. Today, after fifty years of innovation, dedication, and excellence, the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center has grown into the region’s preeminent medical institution. This volume commemorates the fifty-year anniversary of the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, and it celebrates the incredible work done by expert professionals in multiple medical fields. Individual chapters explore the history and achievements of the School of Medicine, the School of Nursing, the School of Health Professions, the School of Pharmacy, and the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, along with the many Institutes, Centers, and programs that make the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center the nexus of medical innovation that it is today.

“Don’t Count the Tortillas” The Art of Texas Mexican Cooking Adán Medrano “Adán’s work is an important culinary voice, sharing the perspective and history of his indigenous ancestry to help truly identify the region we know commonly as ‘Tex-Mex.’” —Sean Sherman, The Sioux Chef / NATIFS.ORG

A study in memory, connection, and the sumptuous possibilities of traditional cuisine Chef and food writer Adán Medrano holds the Certificate in Culinary Arts from the Culinary Institute of America. Now living in Houston, he grew up in San Antonio, Texas, and northern Mexico, where he developed his expertise in the flavor profile and techniques of indigenous Texas Mexican foods. Medrano is also author of Truly Texas Mexican: A Native Culinary Heritage in Recipes.

From an early age, Chef Adán Medrano understood the power of cooking to enthrall, to grant artistic agency, and to solidify identity as well as succor and hospitality. In this second cookbook, he documents and explains native ingredients, traditional techniques, and innovations in casero (home-style) Mexican American cooking in Texas. “Don’t Count the Tortillas” offers over 100 kitchen-tested recipes, including newly created dishes that illustrate what is trending in homes and restaurants across Texas. Each recipe is followed by clear, step-by-step instructions, explanation of cooking techniques, and description of the dishes’ cultural context. Dozens of color photographs round out Chef Medrano’s encompassing of a rich indigenous history that turns on family and, more widely, on community—one bound by shared memories of the art that this book honors.

Prospect Poems Claire Sylvester Smith Foreword by Rachel Mennies

The Twenty-Sixth Winner of the Walt McDonald First-Book Prize in Poetry Prospect comprises poems about vantage points, country and personhood, and the difficulty of understanding what is true. Through meticulously articulated explorations of knowledge, truth, language, and science’s explanatory power, Prospect propels us toward grasping even the metaphysical. Claire Sylvester Smith was drawn to medicine—and ultimately ophthalmology—because of the challenge it offered in terms of scientific inquiry. The drive to be exacting and precise with subjects as wildly anomalous as patients is the same that governs her poetry: She engages with the possible precisions of language and fact while appreciating intrinsic imperfections in humans and therefore anything human made. Such a vantage point affords intricate ways of seeing, of investigating how subjective and personal any sensory experience can be. Presented in four parts—Prospect, Country, Proof, and Studies on Anatomy and Mourning—Prospect offers a vision of life scaled as small as a cell and as large as a country, as bordered and un-bordered as a human body, and heightened by the tensions of all that cannot be known.

Claire Sylvester Smith is a physician and writer. She received an MFA from the Michener Center for Writers and an MD from the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine. Her research on communication during awake surgery has been published in The American Journal of Surgery and featured in The New York Times.

Between Two Rivers Photographs and Poems Between the Brazos and the Rio Grande Jerod Foster and John Poch Foreword by Rick Bass “There is an open-heartedness in the poetry and photos here that is nurturing. These are the testimonies of celebrants, pilgrims, artists not lost in the wilderness, but reveling in their wandering…. these are artifacts of an intimate spirit, not an estranged aesthete or wayfaring stranger. This book is as full of residency as can be imagined: overflowing.” Jerod Foster is a natural history and travel photographer whose work has appeared in Texas Highways, Texas Parks and Wildlife, The New York Times, and The Texas Tribune. He has authored seven books on photography education and is associate professor of practice in the College of Media & Communication at Texas Tech University. John Poch is the author of five collections of poetry, including Texases (WordFarm Press, 2019). His poetry has won many prizes including the Nation/“Discovery” Award, the Donald Justice Prize, and The New Criterion Poetry Prize.

—Rick Bass, from the foreword

Through shifts of light and line, a meditation upon landscape, what thrives within, and the delicate order of all that seems immutable The Brazos River and the Rio Grande: What lies between are physical and cultural geographies stretching south from the Texas Hill Country to the border of Mexico, west across the Trans-Pecos, and up through Northern New Mexico into Colorado. Natural borders of a region long explored, pondered, and celebrated in song and image, “The Arms (of God)” and “the Big River” have also left their stamp on the lands and all else that and who would thrive between them.  Not unlike the heart and life lines of a left palm, these drought-pressed but determined rivers define much about the life and diversity they bracket. Under their spell, photographer Jerod Foster and poet John Poch praise and wonder along their varied waterways and across the landscapes they host. The result is communion—a synergy of imagery in story and story in imagery, finding unexpected form, depths, and meaning much as rivers themselves are honed in the pull of gravity and texture.   What emerges then is an origin narrative conveying a natural history as vividly and compellingly as it does the current state of all that dwells within.

Latinos and Latinas in American Sport Stories Beyond Peloteros Edited by Jorge Iber “For decades now Latinos/as have employed sports as effective tools for community organizing, reinforcing ethnic pride, and countering stereotypes perpetuated among the broader population. The goal here is to demonstrate how athletic endeavors can be at the forefront of improving daily lives amidst difficult circumstances both within and beyond barrios throughout the nation.” —Jorge Iber, from his introduction

Broadening and deepening our understanding of sport and community Latinos and Latinas in American Sport: Stories Beyond Peloteros expands upon the significance of sport in US Latino communities by looking at sports as diverse as drag racing and community softball, the rise of Latinas in high school basketball, and the role of Latinos in protesting social injustice through sport. Although the Latino/a population of the United States has significantly expanded since the 1960s, an analysis of this population’s place in the history of American sport has, until recently, been sorely lacking. This second anthology by Jorge Iber adds scope and depth to our understanding of the relationship between sport/recreation and identity and involvement among Spanish-speaking people throughout what is now the United States. The chapters of this volume focus on eras and topics as varied as the Latino experience itself, including the treatment of Mexican athletes arriving in the US for the 1932 Olympics; the importance of youth baseball in an early 1960s southern Texas community; and how the growing Latino presence in the NFL and other professional sports has destabilized the historically black/white dichotomy in US athletics.

Jorge Iber is a professor of history and associate dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at Texas Tech University. Over the past ten years, he has written and published widely on the role of Latinos/as in the history of US sports.

In considering such instances in the particular, this volume further illuminates the roles that sport and recreation play in the day-to-day existence of Spanish speakers in the United States.

Series and Prizes Focusing on the American legal system in local, state, or national settings, American Liberty and Justice explores legal culture, criminal justice administration, state constitutional development, and judicial decisions through scholarly works such as deeply researched biographies, state-court histories, and case studies.

The Grover E. Murray Studies in the American Southwest is a book series devoted to all aspects of culture, history, natural history, and the sciences as they serve to define the Southwest and to engage and enlighten its broadest constituency.

Established in recognition of a lifetime of achievement in and dedication to scholarly publishing, Judith Keeling Books honor works undertaken through careful research and assiduous attention to detail that make a valuable, perhaps otherwise unnoticed, contribution to the scholarly community and to the literary culture of Texas and the American West. The Rodenberger Prize provides for a $1,000 award and publication of the manuscript best illuminating women’s roles in the history, culture, and letters of Texas and the American West, especially in West Texas and the Texas Border Region.

A book series that, although examining the interrelationship of culture and environment, seeks to illuminate and define the Great Plains, its peoples, and its landscape through original monographs, edited collections, biographies, memoir, and comparative studies. A book series for general reader­ ship that examines the impact of sport on American society, par­ ticularly illuminating the inter­ sections between sport and a broad range of issues in American history and culture, such as race, class, ethnicity, and gender.

Voice in the American West It is the confluence of differences, in its lands and peoples, that forms the American West. The book series Voice in the American West seeks the headwaters from which the West arises, its stories in first person and in every iteration of voice, in images as well as words, in line and color as well as sound and speech.

Named for its first poetry editor, TTU Paul Whitfield Horn Professor of English Walter Robert (Walt) McDonald, this annual invitation-only first-book prize awards publication annually to exceptional previously unpublished poets.

Modern Jewish History Taking as its subject Jewish life in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, this series continues to examine the Shoah and global Jewish diaspora, alongside neglected historical figures and moments as well as analysis of Jewish literature. A series of books for scholarly and general audiences that enhance and expand critical research, creative scholarship, and practical education in the fields of war and society, global peacemaking, conflict resolution, and society’s response to such efforts.

Addresses

Texas Tech University Press (TTU Press) has been the book publishing arm of Texas Tech University since 1971 and a member of the Association of American University Presses since 1987. The mission of TTU Press is to disseminate the fruits of original research by publishing rigorously peer-reviewed works that compel scholarly exchange and that entertain and enlighten the university’s broadest constituency throughout the state, the nation, and the world.

Texas Tech University Press (General Mailing/Billing): TTU Press, Box 41037 Lubbock, TX 79409-1037

TTU Press publishes 15–20 new titles each year and has approximately 450 titles in print. In addition to a diverse list of nonfiction titles focused on the history and culture of Texas, the Great Plains, and the American West, the Press publishes in the areas of natural history, border studies, and peace and conflict studies. Additionally, the Press publishes select titles in literary genres ranging from biography and memoir to young adult and children’s titles. It also publishes the annual winner of the Walt McDonald First-Book Competition in Poetry.

The Importance of TTU Press As a university press, we make available works of scholarship and literature that might otherwise not be published.

CALL FOR

Call for Submissions

We at TTU Press welcome submissions that pertain to our mission, which is— quite simply—to advance the frontiers of knowledge. In that spirit, we encourage submissions across a diverse array of fields and subjects. Since we are a West Texas press, however, our publishing focus tends toward the local and regional, and specifically the American West. We are pleased to support young scholars pushing boundaries, as well as established voices who bring years of expertise in their fields. -Brian Ott, Director of TTU Press

We especially seek to expand our titles in the following areas: • The West (from its deepest history to its most contemporary imaginings) • Native and Indigenous Studies • Regionally Focused Queer and Gender Theory • New Perspectives on Frontier Literature • Borderlands Theory and Literature • Ecologies of the West • The Vietnam War (and all matters pertaining to Peace and Conflict Studies) • Modern Jewish and Holocaust Studies If you are at any stage of working on a relevant project--from it being simply a gleam in your eye to finalizing a book manuscript—please feel welcome to contact Travis Snyder, TTUP’s acquisitions editor, at travis.snyder@ttu.edu

Spring/Summer 2020 Texana / Games

T

here are two types of people in Texas: those who play 42 and those who need to learn. Winning 42 is written for both. A team game that no one tires of playing, 42 relies on neither luck nor memory. Skill and strategy definitely separate the best from the rest. Played casually by those who enjoy socializing or intently by those who relish the logic of each domino played, 42 is perhaps the most widely acknowledged cultural expression in Texas.

I hope that some day, when George and I have more time to relax and play dominoes, we will pick it up again. We had such fun playing 42 with our good friends.

A.C. Greene • This is the best introduction to the game it seems possible to make: clear, simple instructions and lots of examples and illustrations— and several chapters to advise the experts.

Bill Moyers

• The way some kids dream of being Michael Jordan, I imagine myself taking the points!
