Summary

An anthology of traditional and contemporary western short stories where the characters are lain bare.

 
Feel the pain of a young Japanese girl who comes home from an internment camp after World War II and learns it’s easier to go with the flow than to fight the current.



 
Struggle with an expectant mother on the cold winter prairie while she waits for her husband to come home from a hunting trip.



 
Journey with a young woman to the Four Corners as she tries to connect with her Navajo ancestors.



 
Try not to believe in the superstition of the blue moon—if one dies, three more will follow.



 
Know that one way or another, life will change inalterably that day.



 
Walk in the footsteps of an old cowpoke who thought he made the deal of a lifetime.



 
Suffer the torments of a young lady who wants desperately to marry but seems destined never to wed.



 
Walk the wild western paths and run from unimaginable dangers.



 
Choose between an unhappy life of luxury or a happy life of simplicity.



 
Nine female authors pen western tales that you’ll want to retell around a campfire. These aren’t your granddaddy’s westerns. They’re the next generation’s, and they’re darn good.

    Premiered at the Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago in summer 2012 to critical acclaim.Chris Jones of the Chicago Tribune describes the adaptation: “It's not so much that Letts is translating Chekhov rather than writing his own play… Letts' main achievement here is to make Chekhov more emotional, accessible and active”.A great title for academic audiences and readers of classics – it’s a modern master-playwright’s collaboration with a classic playwright’s textLetts’ previous work August: Osage County earned him the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and a Tony Award for Best Play, and was later adapted into an Oscar Award-nominated film starring Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts in 2013.As a performer, Letts was honored with the 2013 Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Play for his work on Broadway in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?Letts is also known for his role in Showtime’s Homeland as Senator Andrew Lockhart

    DH Lawrence - An Introduction. For many of us DH Lawrence was a schoolboy hero. Who can forget sniggering in class at the mention of Women In Love or Lady Chatterley's Lover? Lawrence was a talented if nomadic writer whose novels were passionately received, suppressed at times and generally at odds with Establishment values. This of course did not deter him. At his death in 1930 at the young age of 44 he was more often thought of as a pornographer but in the ensuing years he has come to be more rightly regarded as one of the most imaginative writers these shores have produced. As well as his novels and plays he was also a masterful poet and wrote over 800 of them. In this collection we discover and nourish ourselves on a small part of that legacy that reveals much about the man and his views on life.  Many of those poems are also available on our audiobook verson at iTunes, Amazon and other digital stores.

    A simplistic, slightly cynical, yet realistic look into the life and mind of a woman struggling to cope with one of the the pressures of being a strong female - Aging. 
    Written by a woman who knows what women accomplish, who they love, and who loves them; matters more than the vain, beautification of the way their lips purse together, the way their hair shimmers and flows, or the way their eye make-up can contradict the depth of their knowledge. But yet, knowing this, she still continues to struggle in the art of gracefully aging. 
    A woman, who, as she becomes more wise, experienced, and purposeful; struggles with why it seems the trade-off for that wisdom means losing the activeness and glow of her youth. 
    This book is written by a woman, who supports women in their success in being a woman. In keeping it real, keeping it honest, and knowing honesty doesn't sacrifice capability. 
    Profits from the sale of each book will go to support charitable organizations founded to empower women and create social change.

    The work within this book is a creative expression of a basic disagreement of political philosophy. It was written as a means to question the government in power and hold them to account for their policies, choices and decisions which clearly do not represent the majority of the people in this country as reflected in the daily media coverage of current events.
