EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

From two-time Newbery Medalist Kate DiCamillo comes a story of discovering who you are — and deciding who you want to be. When Louisiana Elefante’s granny wakes her up in the middle of the night to tell her that the day of reckoning has arrived and they have to leave home immediately, Louisiana isn’t overly worried. After all, Granny has many middle-of-the-night ideas. But this time, things are different. This time, Granny intends for them never to return. Separated from her best friends, Raymie and Beverly, Louisiana struggles to oppose the winds of fate (and Granny) and find a way home. But as Louisiana’s life becomes entwined with the lives of the people of a small Georgia town — including a surly motel owner, a walrus-like minister, and a mysterious boy with a crow on his shoulder — she starts to worry that she is destined only for good-byes. (Which could be due to the curse on Louisiana's and Granny’s heads. But that is a story for another time.) Called “one of DiCamillo’s most singular and arresting creations” by The New York Times Book Review, the heartbreakingly irresistible Louisiana Elefante was introduced to readers in Raymie Nightingale — and now, with humor and tenderness, Kate DiCamillo returns to tell her story.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

With New Orleans Suite, Eric Porter and Lewis Watts join the post-Katrina conversation about New Orleans and its changing cultural scene. Using both visual evidence and the written word, Watts and Porter pay homage to the city, its region, and its residents, by mapping recent and often contradictory social and cultural transformations, and seeking to counter inadequate and often pejorative accounts of the people and place that give New Orleans its soul. Focusing for the most part on the city’s African American community, New Orleans Suite is a story about people: how bad things have happened to them in the long and short run, how they have persevered by drawing upon and transforming their cultural practices, and what they can teach us about citizenship, politics, and society.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This edited volume reveals how a permanent war economy has made the United States unable to spread democracy abroad and has worsened domestic problems. The editors draw from classical readings in political theory, from primary documents (including key court decisions), and from social science research to analyze such issues as the effect of militarization and combativeness on the everyday lives of Americans. The editors also address the dire connection among banking losses, the housing recession, the welfare/national security state, and the challenge of rebuilding AmericaÆs infrastructure.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

There was never a stronger desire that flows through the veins of a Louisiana man to be a cowboy than in Tom Menzer. At nineteen, he had made a good start to do that, but Pontchartrain, Louisiana, did not seem to be the right place, so he turned his horse west and headed for Texas where the real cowboys came from. The life he lived is nothing more than a harrowing experience. If he made friends with the native Indians, then the white man would hate him, would call him a squaw man, and would tell him that his life was worth nothing more than the average Indian. If he took the side of the white man, then the Indians would look to lift his scalp. Tom was not a killer, and he hated killing. But he found himself wearing a necktie that was just seconds away from taking his life by some soldiers that were paid by a very rich rancher to dispose of him. It was after that he vowed never to be caught by the law. He traveled north to Oklahoma where he made friends with a village of natives. There he hunted and contributed his share of food for the village. The chief rewarded him with his daughter. When she was a little baby still on her mothers breast, her family was massacred by the natives. She was found crying under some small bushes, and a warrior took her and gave her to the chief whose wife was nursing a young son and nursed her to become a very lovely maiden. The chief later told Tom that his wife was not native, and he had waited a long time to find the right man for his daughter. When the horse thieves tried to kill him and harm his wife and family, it was only then that he used his gun to kill the thieves. Suffering from the buckshot in his back, he had a man at a fort near Calgary dig the pellets out with his hunting knife. You can read on and find out how Tom and Raven Feather learned to love each other in a deep and enduring way.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Louisiana Coffeewith lots of cream is Dr. Betty Reynolds fifth book to be published. Not surprisingly, this book is not about coffee, nor is it about cream. Instead, it is a delightful medley of intriguing tales covering four generations of a New Orleans Creole family. Since Creole usually denotes a mixing of bloods, the color of their skin can be as varied as the color of ones coffee ranging from dark, dark chocolate to the lightest of rich cream. This fictional memoir appropriately starts a hundred years ago in New Orleansthe home of the family matriarch, Bertha Mayberry. Berthas story is a mysterious one that she preferred to be kept locked among other family secrets. She was particularly sensitive about having to reveal her misfortune of being trapped in a bordello when she first arrived in New Orleans as a young girl. Her romantic rescue ended in tragedy, but she did transcend in the end and married a popular Black jazz musician named William Sweetwater Lewis. Together they gained respectability by working hard and providing their five daughters with a good education, a passion for music, and a young life filled with parties and gala events in a city that was known for them. Berthas children as well as her childrens children follow their own paths in choosing where and how they will live out their lives. Their accounts of triumphs and mishaps take you on a fascinating journey to experience the mysteries of black magic in the Louisiana swamps, a numbers racket in Detroit and the casinos in Las Vegas when the mob was in control. Some leave the safety of their ancestral home on Bourbon Street to carve out new lives in other far-away places such as the Jersey Shores, Philadelphia, or New York. Whatever their destination, each member of the Lewis clan brings to the saga an interesting storyline that shares his/her unique motivations, desires and actions that sometimes lead to less than favorable consequences. Louisiana Coffeeis meant to inform, rather than to alarm. It is a tell-all fiction that might open some eyes as what goes on in a different world on the other side of the cultural divide.
