With Wearing the Morning Star, Brian Swann presents a collection of more than one hundred Native American songs that celebrate the rich and vibrant oral traditions of the Indigenous peoples of North America. These are songs of the earth and the sky, songs of mourning and of love, parts of ceremonies and rites and rituals. Some have familiar themes; others illuminate the complexities and differences of the Native cultures. The collection includes songs of derision and threat, ribald songs, hunting chants, and a song sung by an Inuit about the first airplane he ever saw. ø Swann has provided an authoritative introduction and notes for each selection that place the songs in their cultural contexts. He has reworked the original translations where appropriate to allow the modern reader to appreciate and enjoy these remarkable works and provides a new preface for this Bison Books edition.

"A revelation of Jesus Christ" Thus begins a candidate for the most misunderstood literary creation in human history. This book, with its vivid imagery, but written in a little used literary form, is intended for the support and comfort of the followers of Jesus in their spiritual jpurney, especially during times of persecution. Written in poetic code, its glorious messages of comfort are hidden from the world and its alarmist profiteers. It is the grand climax of the Bible, a summary of the teachings of the 1st Century church. Once understood, the rich imagery opens easily to the bondservants of Jesus.
The story of an early champion of women's independence and of human rights whose career spanned one of the most turbulent and vital periods in American history.
I was Atheena, a mortal Princess of Veer... At the forging of Dalvorren, a song was woven into the fabric of time, and thus the war for mastery over the land ensued. Nearly two thousand years after the Landings of Men, a daughter named Atheena is born to the King of Veer. She grows into a lovely young woman, unaware of her destiny until the enemies of Men begin ruthlessly hunting her. Stolen from her homeland, she must endure the crucibles of captivity, awaiting her rescuer, a mysterious stranger whom her father upholds as the Morning Star. As the Last Battle draws ever nearer, the enemies of Men marshal their forces while Atheena and those loyal to the Morning Star await the Unveiling, the day when their greatest champion will be revealed to the world and will bring his might to bear against the forces of evil. Though the enemies of Men seem to be sovereign, Atheena's doom is not in their grasp but is written into that ancient song: Onuuonath Keeril, the Ascension of the Morning Star.
An expanded edition of revered theorist Michael Löwy's Morning Star: Marxism and Surrealism (previously published in French, Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, and Greek), this masterwork collects the author's essays on the ways in which surrealism intersected with a variety of revolutionary political approaches, ranging from utopian ideals to Marxism and situationism. Taking its title from André Breton's essay "Arcane 17," which casts the star as the searing firebrand of rebellion, Löwy's provocative work spans many perspectives. These include surrealist artists who were deeply interested in Marxism and anarchism (Breton among them), as well as Marxists who were deeply interested in surrealism (Walter Benjamin in particular). Probing the dialectics of innovation, diversity, continuity, and unity throughout surrealism's international presence, Morning Star also incorporates analyses of Claude Cahun, Guy Debord, Pierre Naville, José Carlos Mariátegui and others, accompanied by numerous reproductions of surrealist art. An extraordinarily rich collection, Morning Star promises to ignite new dialogues regarding the very nature of dissent.

Award-winning archaeologists and New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors W. Michael Gear and Kathleen O'Neal Gear begin the stunning saga of the North American equivalent of ancient Rome in People of the Morning Star. The city of Cahokia, at its height, covered more than six square miles around what is now St. Louis and included structures more than ten stories high. Cahokian warriors and traders roamed from the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico. What force on earth would motivate hundreds of thousands of people to pick up, move hundreds of miles, and once plopped down amidst a polyglot of strangers, build an incredible city? A religious miracle: the Cahokians believed that the divine hero Morning Star had been resurrected in the flesh. But not all is fine and stable in glorious Cahokia. To the astonishment of the ruling clan, an attempt is made on the living god's life. Now it is up to Morning Star's aunt, Matron Blue Heron, to keep it quiet until she can uncover the plot and bring the culprits to justice. If she fails, Cahokia will be torn asunder in warfare, rage, and blood as civil war consumes them all. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
