A Death in the Sanchez Family

by Oscar Lewis

A Death in the Sanchez family is a short and poignant account of how the poor die—of the death of Aunt Guadalupe, and of her funeral, to which the members of the Sanchez family come as mourners. Jhe Children of Sanchez by Professor Lewis has become an anthropological classic, which is read and studied throughout the world. In this short book Professor Lewis revisits the members of the family, now a few years older, on the occasion of the death of their old aunt. As in his previous books, Professor Lewis allows the members of the family to tell their own stories: their reactions to the funeral and their memories of the impoverished but often heroic life of their deceased aunt. As Professor Lewis writes: "For the poor, death is almost as great a hardship as life itself.” The struggle to get Aunt Guadalupe decently into the earth is one of the themes of this book. But Professor Lewis’ main subject is how her death illuminated her life, and how her life and death reflected the culture of poverty in which she lived.

Candlemas Bay

by Ruth Moore

Another regional, coast story of fishing and family backgrounds. For the Ellises of sturdy, independent and competent ancestors--are confronted with the weakness of Guy, whose irresponsibility and drunkenness keep his wife and children in debt to this father. His death forces Jen to take boarders, to the full fledged horror of her sister-in-law, Candace, and the results barely escape tragedy. For Candace, in her rage against the new order, is an instrument of near death and destruction, but her vicious selfishness ultimately brings happiness for Jen and Candace's two sisters, and makes the death of Grampie Jebron Ellis a thing of full contentment. The fusing of the lifelines of Guy, Jen, Candace and Evelyn are a frame for the growing up of the boy, Jeb, and his passion for the man who have preceded him and their devotion to the life of the sea and fishing. Of more than satisfactory substance and atmosphere, for an audience as before.

Onionhead: A Novel of the Coast Guard

by Weldon Hill

As an insolvent, lonely student at the University of Oklahoma in the days before America's entry into World War II, Al Woods was obsessed with two things: food and sex. He never seemed to have enough of the first, and never seemed to have any of the second. He had known nothing but hard times. He felt himself a member of the Doomed Generation, whose best hope was the least of several evils. Since he thought he was getting nowhere in college, Al joined the Coast Guard; it was better than being drafted, and it offered three square meals a day. Al's story is a novel of the Coast Guard--America's first seagoing outfit, with a tradition that has been neglected in fiction. It is the immensely readable, strongly compelling story of how he became a man through his life in the ships and of how he learned the difference between lust and love through his experiences with the women on shore. There were no heroics in the Coast Guard--at first. There was, for Al, a disillusioning fiasco in the New Orleans' Baronne Street, which made him wonder about all women, and with a special kind of torment, about Josephine Hill, the popular coed at the University to whom he had felt closer than to any other girl. There was routine duty on the buoy tender Skedeelia around the Great Lakes, and the pleasurable discovery that he had the makings of a first-class cook, and the lamentable discovery that in the eyes of his shipmates he had become an "onionhead." There was the growing comradeship with Red Wildoe, his superior in the galley, and with other members of the crew. And there was Stella, whom Al met in a Milwaukee water-front bar. Stella was all woman and all passion. Yet his relationship with her brought a troubling sense that he had betrayed a shipmate's friendship; and for all its sensual satisfactions, something was lacking. He thought that with Jo Hill things would have been different, but her letters told him he had lost her. Before the book is over America has entered the war, Al has seen action in the Atlantic, and learned a lot more about women. Above all he has gained maturity and character, as he proves when he meets the real test of his loyalty. Weldon Hill, a new novelist, has told his story with humor, understanding, and unblinking realism. He has a superb ear for the way people talk, and an innate grasp of how they think and feel.

Rafe

by Weldon Hill

Rafe is an eastern Oklahoma farm boy who does everything wrong--until he does one important thing exactly right. Rafe was a spiritual dropout, physically attending school but intellectually truant. He hadn't missed a class all winter, but more and more his restless mind had defected. He worried a lot, because he had a lot to worry about. Big and little things; past, present, and future things; distressingly actual things and possible things and improbable things. ... It just didn't seem right to Rafe that the Laytons should be scattered around all the time like that, him and Mitch in Dogwood, their dad and Arnie isolated on the farm north of the river, and their mother working away to hell and gone. If some kind of big disaster happened on a school day they might not ever get together again, but would spend the rest of their lives poking through the ruins, looking for each other. Laid-back, good-natured Pete Cornshucks, a widower and Rafe's next-door neighbor, is a Cherokee Indian. He and Rafe's dad served together during WWII; Pete was a sergeant and Rafe's father had been a corporal in the same platoon, both earning Purple Hearts, battle stars, Unit Citations, and more. Pete had even earned a Silver Star, and he'd been the one to talk Rafe's father into buying the much loved farm next to Pete's. On a bright sunny day in rural Oklahoma, Pete and Rafe's lives are changed forever when a natural disaster hits, spinning both headlong into paths that force them to make split-second decisions which will spare or take the lives of those they love the most.

Spook the Mustang (Famous Horse Stories)

by Harlan Thompson

Circus Sequins

by Elisabeth Hamilton Friermood

Roxy Clark--spunky, temperamental, and red-headed--had "circus in her bones and horses in her blood." So when the chance came to join the Hallock Circus, if only as wardrobe assistant, Roxy leaped at it. Before the summer was over, surely her skill as a rider would be recognized. Then, as a headliner, in a striking sequined costume like her aerialist cousin Mimi's, she might realize her dream--and even include Karl Kassel, a star performer, in it. Yet as the circus cars rolled through the midwestern and southern towns, Roxy began to wonder if she'd ever emerge from backstage. And that bull- headed farmer, Doug Gardner, appeared to confuse her with talks of marriage. Then suddenly a tragic rail accident catapulted Roxy to center ring--and a difficult choice faced her. In this colorful story set in 1914, Elisabeth Friermood brings life to the kaleidoscopic circus world--its performers, roustabouts, animals, sights, sounds, and smells--through the experience of a teenager as spirited as the horses she rides.

My Brother John

by Herbert Purdum

As brothers go I suppose John was a pretty good one, and I suppose I couldn't really blame him for becoming a preacher. If he'd only have settled down somewhere everything would have been fine. But not him! He had to be a circuit rider. And not just anyplace! He had to pick out the wildest, toughest part of the whole blamed frontier, where the law came in calibers and God was nothing but a word used to cuss with. Most folks would figure it was tough enough trying to stay alive on the frontier, what with red Injuns and wild critters and just plain badmen running around loose and looking for trouble, without deliberately taking on a killer outfit like Saber. Leastways I've only known one man who was reasonably sane that had that kind of nerve--only he called it faith: MY BROTHER JOHN.
