Sheila Adams has been performing Appalachian ballads and telling stories for over twenty years. A native of Madison County, North Carolina, she was introduced to the tale-telling tradition by her great-aunt 'Granny,' well-known balladeer Dellie Chandler Norton. This collection of Adams's stories provides a rare portrait of a distinctive mountain community and charts the development of an artist's unique voice. The tales range from stories of heroic, sometimes fierce, mountain settlers to the comic adventures of local drifters and tricksters, from magical childhood encounters to adult rites of passage. We meet Bertha and the snake handlers, local preacher Manassey Fender (who 'looked like a pencil with a burr haircut, in a suit'), and Adams's beloved grandfather Breaddaddy, who taught her about life and death with an enchanting graveyard dance. But perhaps the most powerful character depicted here is 'Granny,' whom Adams calls 'the most exciting person I have ever known and the best teacher I would ever have.' By weaving these remembrances into her stories, Adams both preserves and extends a rich artistic heritage.

My purpose in this summary is to introduce myself and my character. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read my story. I come from a strict family background of fifteen children. When my father passed away, I was at the age of sixteen. I knew nothing about life experiences or how to deal with different issues. The only thing we were allowed to do was go to school and church. We had no friends because we were not allowed to. We were very sheltered and withdrawn from society.

Simon Pokagon, the son of tribal patriarch Leopold Pokagon, was a talented writer, advocate for the Pokagon Potawatomi community, and tireless self-promoter. In 1899, shorty after his death, Pokagon's novel Ogimawkwe Mitigwaki (Queen of the Woods)—only the second ever published by an American Indian—appeared. It was intended to be a testimonial to the traditions, stability, and continuity of the Potawatomi in a rapidly changing world. Read today, Queen of the Woods is evidence of the author's desire to mark the cultural, political, and social landscapes with a memorial to the past and a monument to a future that included the Pokagon Potawatomi as distinct and honored people. This new edition offers a reprint of the original 1899 novel with the author's introduction to the language and culture of his people. In addition, new accompanying materials add context through a cultural biography, literary historical analysis, and linguistic considerations of the unusual text.

The Diary of Elizabeth Lee

Growing Up on Merseyside in the Late Nineteenth Century

Personal diaries provide rare glimpses into those aspects of the past that are usually hidden from view, and the diary of Elizabeth Lee (1868–?) is no exception to this rule. Elizabeth’s father was a draper and outfitter in Birkenhead and during the twenty-five year span of Lee’s diary which began in 1884, she lived at home with her family while simultaneously traveling to both sides of the Mersey without supervision, making the diary an unusually revealing portrait of middle-class female life in Victorian society. Accompanied by a detailed introduction and an analysis of the diary itself, as well as a glossary relating to key people mentioned in its pages, The Diary of Elizabeth Lee is a rare firsthand account of adolescent life in Victorian Britain.

There she meets Dan, who manages to persuade her that he should show her the sights of the city. She knows Richard would be cross, but what harm could come of it?

He is a ninety-one-year-young man of the old school, such as being soft spoken and well taught in military life, with the ability to give and take orders with ease and authority. This is his first book and there may be more. His emotions are strong and he did everything for his family, i.e. mother, sisters, and brothers. In his book, he relates how he goes places and does things to earn money for them so they may have food and clothing. Later, he got married and had a son and then found he also had a stepdaughter with the lady he married first and also raises her. There was a lot of confusion and often misbehavior related in his book and lots of bread or food for tears within his life. That misbehavior and confusion went away when he met and married a lovely lady and a great beauty from Santa Cruz, California, who had lost her husband. They became fast friends immediately upon meeting and married within two months. She also has a daughter who lives in Las Vegas, Nevada. His life has seen a great change, and he is now living in a small town with the lady he should have been espoused to long ago. He has walked the streets of China, ridden on rickshaws in India, helped thresh oats, barley, and wheat in Canada, lived on the beach in Fiji as a native, spent hours in the rains of the Philippines, attended navy school in Florida Keys, experienced the Panama, chewed sand off the Mojave Desert, watched Italy disappear in the sunset, saw the enemys home towns, spent six hours swimming in the Coral Sea when the USS Lexington sank, outwitted the sharks, and then flew into Pearl Harbor in a TBD aircraft the day after Pearl Harbor had been attacked, viewing the death and ruin of that harbor.

In 1989 I met Ron; it was love at first sight, which later became a nightmare. My life was one of devastating choices in order to survive. My children and I were ensnared in a trap of brutality that was hauntingly real. The decision I made in order to live one more day under tortuous circumstances prevented him from killing me allowing my children and me to survive. With one bag of food at my door I fed my kids for a week, we were literally without a dime. My strength and willful confidence kept us going and my children believed in me, that was what kept us alive. Today I can honestly say- Ive come a long way.
