Publisher: UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA PRESS:

Seller ID: IM266298


The feuds raging in Texas in the nineteenth century bound in acrimony not only families but special-interest groups that, feeling intolerably wronged, sought "extralegal justice" when they believed the law would give them no satisfaction. In "I'll Die Before I'll Run" the prominent historian C. L. Sonnichsen leaves no doubt that bad blood so often turned into bloody feuds in Texas because there the folk law of the frontier was reinforced by the unwritten code of honor of... View more info

INDIGENOUS : GROWING UP CALIFORNIAN

By: CRIS MAZZA

Price: $8.50

Publisher: SUBTERRANEAN COMPANY:

Seller ID: IM299163


Cris Mazza delivers a spirited rebuttal to pop-culture stereotypes about growing up female in Southern California. Coming of age in the 1970s and '80s, Mazza's memories aren't about surfing, cheerleading or riding in convertibles. Though her story has its exotic elements--her family hunts and -gathers food in the semi-arid coastal hills well into the early '70s--she sets herself in the context of familiar Americana. Repeating motifs--gender issues, the California land... View more info

Publisher: UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA PRESS:

Seller ID: IM266237


Oklahoma is a plains state exemplifying the Middle American virtues of family, lodge, and church; a southern state in the path of the power shift from the indus-trial East to the energy-rich sunbelt; a western state of modern cowboys and rodeos. Small wonder its political culture is so varied. The authors of "Oklahoma Politics and Policies" contend that Oklahoma is a paradox--a state struggling for a clear sense of identity where the old and new vie for the allegiance of... View more info

In the summer of 1916, Dorothy Woodruff and Rosamond Underwood, bored by society luncheons, charity work, and the effete men who courted them, left their families in Auburn, New York, to teach school in the wilds of northwestern Colorado.
