From Texas Tech University Press This past spring, Texas Tech University Press, like countless organizations across the US, experienced the myriad challenges of operating during the COVID-19 pandemic. Offices and businesses across the nation were shuttered, and all of us at TTU Press were faced with adapting to new work-from-home environments. In the midst of this transition, though facing a period of substantial anxiety, we all agreed that our shared commitment to our mission became ever stronger. In the face of uncertainty, humanity depends upon reliable knowledge: the dissemination of vetted, unbiased, and wide-ranging scholarship is the heart of a university press’s mission. And so we set ourselves back to the business of crafting high-quality works for the benefit of our readers.

DESCRIPTION Jada Ach’s scholarship in Sand, Water, Salt: Managing the Elements in Literature of the American West, 1880– 1925 seeks to reevaluate the Progressive Era’s environmental legacy. Taking an ecocritical approach to turn-of-thecentury literature set in the American West, Ach interrogates texts by asking what kinds of environmental, national, and cultural stories the elements have to tell about land and oceanic management. Sand, Water, Salt investigates managerial engagements with dynamic ecologies in three particular Western environments: the arid deserts, the semiarid high plains, and the Pacific Ocean. At different times, and to varying degrees, Americans have deemed these environments economically unproductive, incompatible with Anglo-American settlement, and / or highly unmanageable. Despite these varied complaints, the United States has also intensely desired these “wasteland” spaces, perceiving them as sources of both national wealth and elite pleasure. Sand, Water, Salt moves through a variety of novels, memoirs, and cultural artifacts from the 1880s to the 1920s, including L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Frank Norris’s McTeague, Mary Hunter Austin’s The Land of Little Rain, The Virginian by Owen Wister, Life among the Piutes by Sarah Winnemucca, as well as Jack London’s The Sea-Wolf and Yone Noguchi’s The American Diary of a Japanese Girl. Ach ultimately asks what we gain by looking back at fin-de-siècle American literature with a queer, ecological justice-oriented eye, a particularly invigorating conversation that uniquely uses the elements as foci. Jada Ach is a lecturer for the Leadership and Integrative Studies Program at Arizona State University. Her research has appeared in Western American Literature, Ecozon@, and Studies in the Novel. Along with Gary Reger, Ach coedited the essay collection Reading Aridity in Western American Literature.

Girls Don’t A Woman’s War in Vietnam Inette Miller

A war correspondent follows her husband into the Vietnam War vietnam / journalism september 2020 256 pp., 6 x 9, index $29.95 cloth 978-1-68283-077-2 $9.95 ebook 978-1-68283-078-9

“Inette Miller offers an unusual look at one of America’s ugliest wars from the perspective of a woman who broke all military rules to follow her draftee husband to Vietnam.” —Denby Fawcett, co-author of War Torn: The Personal Experiences of Women Reporters in the Vietnam War

DESCRIPTION The year is 1970; the war in Vietnam is five years from over. The women’s movement is newly resurgent, and feminists are summarily reviled as “libbers.” Inette Miller is one year out of college—a reporter for a small-town newspaper. Her boyfriend gets drafted and is issued orders to Vietnam. Within their few remaining days together, Inette marries her US Army private, determined to accompany him to war. There are obstacles. All wives of US military are prohibited in country. With the aid of her newspaper’s editor, Miller finagles a one-month work visa and becomes a war reporter. Her newspaper cannot afford life insurance beyond that. After thirty days, she is on her own. As one of the rare women war correspondents in Vietnam and the only one also married to an Army soldier, Miller’s experience was pathbreaking. Girls Don’t shines a light on the conflicting motives that drive an ambitious woman of that era and illustrates the schizophrenic struggle between the forces of powerful feminist ideology and the contrarian forces of the world as it was. Girls Don’t is the story of what happens when a twenty-three-year-old feminist makes her way into the land of machismo. This is a war story, a love story, and an open-hearted confessional within the burgeoning women’s movement, chronicling its demands and its rewards.

Inette Miller on #MeToo, Feminism, and Writing Vietnam You’ve been sitting on this story for a while now. What made you wait to tell it and what made this the right time to do it? For years, I thought everything describing the Vietnam War correspondent experience had been written—that I had nothing new to add to my colleagues’ excellent accounts. About twenty years ago, I made a stab at it. I’d heard a nameless voice on NPR saying: “Wherever you were, whoever you are—if you were a certain age during the Vietnam War, you carry with you a feeling of failure.” That disembodied voice pushed me to try. I wrote a version of this book (called something ludicrously different) and then I joined the chorus in agreeing that it failed to do the trick. But times do change perspective, don’t they? Again, I was prodded by a voice. This time it was the Vietnam War correspondent, Elizabeth Becker, in the New York Times. She wrote: “News organizations weren’t sending women to cover the most important story of our generation. Instead, we had to find our own way to the battle zone. In Vietnam, we became the bridge between two eras: the pioneers of World War II and the women of the modern era, who by the 1991 Gulf War took it for granted that they could cover wars.” I was off and running. The new title, Girls Don’t, bellowed itself. The #MeToo movement assured me that, now, there was an audience. While Girls Don’t is a war story, a love story, and a comingof-age story, it’s also a story of women in the workplace. Can you talk a bit about the difference between the newsrooms in Vietnam versus your experience stateside? Where were gendered expectations most felt? Stateside actually felt more restricted. After 14 months in Vietnam, I returned to a newsroom where I was one of only two women seated among 100 men in the news department. Off to the side, behind a white picket fence (and I am not making this up) was the Women’s Department. I replaced a man as medical / science reporter in a very good town for medical reporting. I was prolific. At some point, my City Editor placed one of my stories in the Women’s section—“to give your story more space”—and I threatened to quit. It didn’t happen again. Oddly, in the heart of the macho world—the Vietnam War—I was freer. In many ways, the War was an opening for the ambitious—it was there for the taking. Once I was credentialed, my colleagues—though perhaps incorrigible chauvinists (and I smile here)—were almost all collegial. The fact that I was married to an American soldier, I suspect, erased potential sexual tension. American military officers—the higher the rank, the more recalcitrant—consistently refused me interviews in favor of my male

colleagues. But the grunts—oh, those sweet boys—I was their favored sister, and they were thrilled to open up to an Englishspeaking American woman. With the advent of #MeToo, we are finally reading about stories that before we simply ignored because they didn’t feel like news or because they threatened powerful men. What are some of the kinds of stories you often saw ignored when you were in Vietnam or thereafter? When American journalism laser-focused on military engage�ment and its political consequence—overwhelmingly, our shared obsession—so much went unseen and unreported. My colleagues could frequent prostitutes with absolutely no awareness of the unimaginable corruption that transported these teenaged girls from farm to forcibly drug-addicted whores. Largely ignored: the obliterated social fabric of the Vietnamese nation—a displaced, agricultural society crammed by American air power into floorless, beer-can-sided huts along urban thoroughfares. Hopeless. We failed to understand (or care about) the culture’s ancestral values and land-centered communities. We completely missed the shame our occupation inflicted on a proud people. Lost in the American news accounts was the crippling pain, degradation and death that our national political choices wreaked on a people who remained largely absent from American minds or consciences. You write about a hierarchy within journalism of the era— with hard news at the top of the totem pole. At the bottom is softer first-person essays. What are the advantages to writing a very first-person Vietnam story like this one? Oh yes, the lines were drawn. Prestige levels were assigned like so. Covering the War was number one; covering politics came next. Hard news, always highly valued; feature stories were still the providence of the Women’s Departments—dismissed as Society events. First-person stories were more the oddity than they are today. My Vietnam colleagues mocked my occasional first-person stories —genuinely perplexed as to why a serious reporter would expose herself in that way. But there was absolutely no other way for me to tell this story. A well-written memoir is indistinguishable from a wellwritten novel— if successful, each take you into authentic emotional experience. Each delivers a protagonist who lives a truth the reader recognizes as his or her own—even when it’s embedded in the most unlikely of places, like a War in Vietnam. Distance did not serve the purpose of truth in this duallevel story: the War for the soul of two nations; the war for gender equality. The first-person voice in this book extinguishes that distance, exposes the deceptions, and puts their emotional fodder in our faces.

“This is a tour-de-force memory and identity study, one that is representative of what we are seeing from a new brand of Texas historians, ones who are willing to attack the ‘Texas Myth’ headon, and bring the credentials and the work to make it an effective argument.” —Scott Sosebee, editor of Lone Star Suburbs and A Lone Star Reader

DESCRIPTION In 1936, the Texas centennial was celebrated across the state. In The Frontier Centennial, Jacob Olmstead argues that Fort Worth’s celebration of the centennial represented a unique opportunity to reshape the city’s identity and align itself with a progressive future. Olmstead draws out the Frontier Centennial from its inception as a commemorative fair to theme park enshrining the mythic West to show the various ways centennial planners, boosters, and civic leaders sought to use the celebration as a means to bolster the city’s identity and image as a modern city of the American West. Olmstead’s retelling of the Frontier Centennial looks at two distinctive processes. The first addresses the interplay of memory, identity, and image in the evolution of the celebration’s commemorative messages. Fort Worth’s image as a progressive western metropolis also impacted other areas, less central, to Frontier Centennial planning. Debates over how outsiders would interpret features of the celebration, carried on by club women and others, reveal the interest the citizenry held in upholding or contesting the city’s modern image. Overlapping with the issues of memory and identity, the second process addresses how the larger narratives of the mythic West influenced the content of the celebration. Though drawn from actual events and people, the myth reduces the past to its “ideological essence.” Mythmakers, like historians, draw upon facts to explain and give meaning to a particular worldview.

DESCRIPTION What if gerrymandering were not just a hot button contemporary political issue but actually a deep story of how Texas came to be? Gerrymandering Texas uses relevant legislation and court cases to tell the political history of the state of Texas. Writing out of decades of experience as an assistant attorney general, senate parliamentarian, expert consultant on redistricting, and law professor, Steve Bickerstaff traces the story of this political practice from 1836 up to the present and prognosticates what lies ahead for the 2020 census and 2021 redistricting. Since redistricting is the story of boundaries, borders, and representation, Bickerstaff’s book also tells the story of Texas’s evolution over time. The various Texas constitutions are unpacked, and the changing racial makeup of the state comes into sharp relief. Democrat dominance in state governance gives way to the recent Republican dominance. Bickerstaff’s analysis of redistricting, always clear-headed and even-handed, gives new insight into the history of the Lone Star State. Gerrymandering Texas intersperses history and legal analysis with first-person stories of the author’s own many experiences with redistricting, from trying cases, to serving as expert witness, to consulting during the latest Texas constitutional convention. Many of these stories represent the first time Bickerstaff has made public his private opinions about important moments in recent Texas political history—moments in which Bickerstaff was himself a key supporting player. Steve Bickerstaff (1946–2019) was an attorney who initially was with the State of Texas as Parliamentarian of the State Senate, Director of the State Office of Constitutional Research, and Assistant Attorney General. During much of this time, Steve was also an adjunct professor at the University of Texas Law School teaching constitutional law and voting rights. Steve authored six books and at least 24 law review articles and chapters in law anthologies. Most of these writings are about election issues.

DESCRIPTION One hundred fifty years ago, Texas was very different. A rural population was spread thinly across the eastern and central parts of the state, and vast lands in the western regions were still undisturbed.. Texas’s habitats and biota changed dramatically as its population increased and people spread across the landscape. In Texas Natural History: A Century of Change (2002), David Schmidly chronicled the changes that occurred during the twentieth century. In this second edition, Schmidly is joined by colleagues Robert and Lisa Bradley of Texas Tech University to extend that story over the first two decades of the twenty-first century. The focus of Texas Natural History in the 21st Century continues to be on the mammalian fauna of the state, and it includes a reprinting of Vernon Bailey’s 1905 “The Biological Survey of Texas” with new annotations and updates. In the rest of the book, the authors discuss changes in landscapes, land use, and the status of Texas mammals in the last hundred years. The authors present current challenges to conserving the natural history of Texas and suggest long-term solutions to those challenges, including actions focused on both private and public lands. As Texas approaches the daunting challenge of conserving its wildlife, Texas Natural History in the 21st Century serves as a rallying cry for addressing the scenarios imperiling Texas’s natural history in our present day and in the future.

The Importance of Vernon Bailey and “The Biological Survey of Texas” Imagine a time when jaguars roamed the terrain in south Texas and around Houston, when ocelots inhabited areas as far north as Kerrville in the Hill Country, when black bears still were common through eastern and western regions of Texas and an occasional grizzly was seen, and when wolves wandered across hundreds of miles in the state. This is what Vernon Bailey, a young government naturalist, found when he began a biological survey of Texas in 1889. Bailey, a young man of twenty-five, had just been appointed as a field naturalist of the United States Biological Survey when he began the Texas survey. In 1905, Bailey published the first scientific treatise of the state’s fauna, “The Biological Survey of Texas.”

During the Texas survey, twelve federal scientists, under Bailey’s leadership, collected data and specimens and took photographs while visiting more than 200 sites along their way to documenting the fauna and flora of the state. In his description of the book, Bailey wrote that “the fauna and flora of Texas are wonderfully rich and varied,” but also expressed hope that “the growing interest in natural history will inspire local hunters and residents” to preserve what already were considered “vanishing forms” of wildlife. “Many important (conservation) problems can be solved only by aid from local naturalists and other intelligent residents of the state,” Bailey wrote. His perspective has certainly proved to be true throughout the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. —David J. Schmidly

“Ripped Apart brings together literary and performance texts in an astute analysis of what immigration and migration policies can do to families. Primarily focusing on the bildungsroman genre, de Veritch Woodside shows how migration itself is a form of coming of age, no matter how old you are.” —Nicole Guidotti-Hernandez, author of Unspeakable Violence: Remapping U.S. and Mexican National Imaginaries

DESCRIPTION Ripped Apart: Unsettling Narratives of Transnational Migration is an innovative and interdisciplinary analysis of Latina narratives of transnational migration that underscore the intersections of the physical, psychological, sociocultural, and legal / structural traumas endured by migrants and their families. Grounded in theories of narrative empathy and the representation of trauma, Ripped Apart analyzes the techniques that Latina writers of various literary genres deploy to develop empathy, interrogate the representation of migrants in dominant discourse, and condemn the structures and institutions that continue to contribute to the separation of families. An excellent introduction to critical Latina texts that address migration and family separation, Ripped Apart incorporates an overview of US immigration policies and practices and notions of citizenship, legality, and whiteness that have resulted in conceptualizations of immigrants as permanent foreigners, criminals, or threats to US society, and provides sociohistorical context regarding the often obscured or omitted historical chapters that serve as the texts’ backdrops. In describing how and why Latina narratives reveal the hidden stories of the impact of transnational migration on women and children, Ripped Apart demonstrates the power of literature and storytelling to unsettle the reader, modify cognitive schemas, and create real-world positive change.

Songs of Sonderling Commissioning Jewish Émigré Composers in Los Angeles, 1938–1945 Jonathan L. Friedmann and John F. Guest Foreword by Nick Strimple

The story of one Los Angeles rabbi’s new vision for liturgical music Jewish history / music NOVEMBER 2020 224 pp., 6 x 9, index, 6 halftones $34.95 cloth 978-1-68283-079-6 $19.95 ebook 978-1-68283-080-2

DESCRIPTION Songs of Sonderling is the story of Jacob Sonderling’s unique contributions to Jewish liturgical music. Rabbi Sonderling was many things: a descendant of Chassidic rebbes, a rationalist, a Reform rabbi, a Zionist, an army chaplain, a celebrated orator, an artistic soul. From his early career at the Hamburg Temple and German Army service in World War I, to his wandering years in the Eastern United States and founding of the Society for Jewish Culture–Fairfax Temple in Los Angeles, Sonderling cultivated a unique aesthetic vision of Judaism, a “five-sense appeal.” Jonathan L. Friedmann and John F. Guest document and analyze Sonderling’s experience and expression of Judaism through music. Rabbi Sonderling’s vision yielded liturgical commissions from exiled Viennese Jewish composers who arrived in Los Angeles in the 1930s and 1940s. Through these musical settings, activities at the Fairfax Temple, and involvement with the Los Angeles campus of the Hebrew Union College–Jewish Institute of Religion, Sonderling made an indelible mark on the city’s Jewish community and the wider musical world. Songs of Sonderling focuses on the commissions Sonderling made from 1938 to 1945: Ernst Toch’s Cantata of the Bitter Herbs, Arnold Schoenberg’s Kol Nidre, Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s A Passover Psalm and Prayer, and Eric Zeisl’s Requiem Ebraico. Through musical analyses and an examination of Sonderling’s career in Los Angeles, Friedmann and Guest contribute to the study of Jewish liturgical music, to Jewish history in the American West, to Jewish identity in the twentieth century, and to Jewish diaspora writ large.

Dark Eyes, Lady Blue María of Ágreda Marilyn H. Fedewa

The story of one mystical woman’s farreaching legacy Religion / biography April 2020 200 pp., 6 x 9, 21 halftones $19.95 paper 978-1-68283-056-7

“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

DESCRIPTION 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 mys� tic, 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.

DESCRIPTION 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. 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. Harry Mithlo, enrolled citizen of 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.

“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

DESCRIPTION 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. This book is an imagining 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 of 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.

DESCRIPTION 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. 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? A Haven in the Sun is a natural history work written for the general reader. More story than polemic and more conversation than taxonomy, the book will appeal to anyone who cares about bird life and its future on the Texas Coast. Generously supported by the Houston Museum of Natural Science 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.

“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

DESCRIPTION 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. 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 lived 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.

DESCRIPTION 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. 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.

Gracious Poems from the 21st Century South Edited by John Poch Introduction by Bryan Giemza

An anthology of contemporary southern verse Poetry july 2020

256 pp., 6 x 9 $39.95, paper, 978-1-68283-064-2

“Though it is hard to define, there exists this thing we call Southern 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

DESCRIPTION John Poch’s newly curated collection, Gracious: Poems from 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 well-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 brief expositions 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.

Along the way, young Wilmettie meets new friends from places and cultures unlike her own as her family makes the perilous journey to claim their homestead land. But will it end up being a true home to Wilmettie? Sue Houser, a native of New Mexico, is interested in preserving the state’s history and traditions. Her stories celebrate the rich cultural diversity of New Mexico. A retired social worker, she lives with her husband in the foothills of the Sandia Mountains.

“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

DESCRIPTION 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 persists as historic record but also the insights to be gained from assiduous persistence.

DESCRIPTION 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 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 illumines a cherished tradition that links Texans from all walks of life. Dennis Roberson is a freelance writer and full-time 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’s most famous professional golf event, The Colonial National Invitation Tournament / Charles Schwab Challenge.

Opus in Brick and Stone The Architectural and Planning Heritage of Texas Tech University Brian H. Griggs Foreword by Richard Kagan

How a Spanish architectural tradition made its way to the Llano Estacado Architecture March 2020 352 pp., 11 x 9 275 color images, index $29.95, cloth, 978-1-68283-044-4

“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

DESCRIPTION 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 the 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. Opus in Brick and Stone celebrates and elevates this little-known history into a tradition that can be appreciated by all Red Raiders.

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.

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 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 reader­ship that examines the impact of sport on American society, par­ticularly illuminating the inter­sections between sport and a broad range of issues in American history and culture, such as race, class, ethnicity, and gender.

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.

Women, Gender, and the West

A scholarly book series that seeks to interrogate and expand the boundaries between gendered constructions of self, space, identity, and place, particularly as related to the American West.

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.

About Texas Tech University Press TTU Press Mission Statement

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 peerreviewed works that compel scholarly exchange and that entertain and enlighten the university’s broadest constituency throughout the state, the nation, and the world. 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. We have a large list in topics showcasing and investigating West Texas, a historically underserved region. Our imprint extends the reach of Texas Tech University both nationally and globally. We promote books and literary culture in our Lubbock community through author events and outreach engagement opportunities.
