Did she have good clothes demanded Ruth, eagerly, for this part of the tale did interest her, as Nat foretold. Let me see. Yes, nice clothes; but sad-colored, for the riding-cloak that hung over her white dimity frock was black. Yet she stood on a pair of the trimmest feet everiseen, wearing hose with fine clocks, and silver buckles in the little shoes. You may believe the boy stared well, for he had never seen so pretty a sight in all his days, and before he knew it he had given her his nosegay of sheepsbane, fern, and honeysuckle. She took it, looking pleased, and made him as fine a courtesy as any lady; vrhereat he turned red and fbolish, being shy, and hurried off into the barn. But she came skipping after, and peeped at him as he milked, watched how he did it for a bit, and then said, like a little queen, Boy, get up and let me try. That pleased him mightily; so, taking little madam on his knee, he let her try. But something vent amiss, for all at once Brindle kicked over the pail, away went the three-legged stool, and both the milkers lay in the dirt. Why, Nat! why, Nat! that was you and I, cried Ruth, clapping her hands delightedly, as this catastrophe confirmed the suspicions which had been growing in her mind since the appearance of the child. Hush! or Ill never tell how they got up, said Nat, hurrying on with a mirthful face. The boy thought the little maid would cry over her bruised arm or go off in a pet at sight of the spoilt frock. But no; she only laughed, patted old Brindle, and sat down, saying stoutly, . . . This item ships from La Vergne,TN., RareBooksClub.com, RareBooksClub.com. Paperback. New.

He used to wander down to the border of the sea, mechanically carrying a tin pail and wooden spade, and there would sit shovelling in sand and shovelling it out again; and while thus engaged would sometimes find there one or two ladies walking with their children--ladies in trim serge skirts, and tidily belted blouses, and neat sailorhats set gracefully on prettily arranged hair, --and he could not for the life of him understand why his mother should allow her dress to be less orderly than that of the cook, and her general. appearance less inviting and odorous than that of the old woman who came round twice a week to sell prawns and shrimps at the door. And so he, brooded and brooded--till on one sudden and alarming day the stolid nursery governess was found on his fathers knee, with his fathers arms clasped round her, --and such an appalling clamour ensued that Boy, who was of course not told the real reason of the disorder, stood terrified and thought everyone in the house had gone raving mad, and that he, poor small chap, was left alone in the middle of a howling wilderness. The stolid nursery governess, on being discovered, had promptly fainted, and lay on the floor with her large feet well upturned and more than an inch of stocking exposed;--the Honourable Jim rattled out all his stock of oaths till he was black and blue in the face with impotent swearing, and Mrs. DArcy-Muir, plumping heavily down in the nearest convenient chair, lifted up her voice and wept. And in the middle of her weeping, happening to perceive Boy standing on the threshold of the room, very pale-faced and half paralysed with fright, she caught him up in her arms and exclaimed, My poor, dear, injured son! with. . .

FROM THE PUBLISHER - Hickum Looney is determined to win Soaps for Life’s annual sales contest - and this year he has an edge. Looney has found that ideal customer: the proverbial little old lady, who swallows all his patter, introduces him to all her friends, and helps him fill a record number of order books. But before he can claim the Cadillac, the trip to Disney World, and the $2,000 in cash as his own, Looney must contend with the Boss, a man who outsells his own salesman year after year. Harry Crews turn the classic rags-to-riches story on its head in this hilarious saga of the trials and tribulations of a beleaguered salesman. Harry Eugene Crews (7 June 1935 – 28 March 2012) was an American novelist, playwright, short story writer and essayist. He was born in Bacon County, Georgia in 1935 and served in the Marines during the Korean War. He attended the University of Florida on the GI Bill, but dropped out to travel. Eventually returning to the university, Harry finally graduated and moved his wife, Sally, and son, Patrick Scott, to Jacksonville where he taught Junior High English for a year. Crews returned to Gainesville and the university to work on his master's in English Education. It was during this period that he and Sally divorced for the first time. Harry continued his studies, graduated, and – denied entrance into UF's Creative Writing program – took a teaching position at Broward Community College in the subject of English. It was here in south Florida that Harry convinced Sally to return to him, and they were re-married. A second son, Byron, was born to them in 1963. He returned to University of Florida in 1968 not as a student, but as a member of the faculty in Creative Writing. Crews formerly taught in the creative writing program at the University of Florida. In 1964, Patrick Scott drowned in a neighbor's pool. This proved to be too heavy a burden on the family, and Harry and Sally were once again divorced. His first published novel, The Gospel Singer, appeared in 1968. His novels include: A Feast of Snakes, The Hawk is Dying, Body, Scar Lover, The Knockout Artist, Karate Is A Thing of the Spirit, All We Need of Hell, The Mulching of America, Car, and Celebration. He published a memoir in 1978 titled A Childhood: The Biography of a Place. Crews wrote essays for Esquire, Playboy, and Fame. He had a column in Esquire called ‘Grits’ for fourteen months in the 1970s, where he covered such topics as cockfighting and dog fighting. Harry had a tattoo on his right arm which said: ‘How do you like your blue eyed boy Mr. Death’ (from the poem Buffalo Bill's by e.e. cummings) beneath a skull. The University of Georgia acquired Harry Crews's papers in August 2006. The archive includes manuscripts and typescripts of his fiction, correspondence, and notes made by Crews while on assignment. He died 28 March 2012, from complications of neuropathy. ISBN: 0684809346., Boston: Little , Brown and Company, 1943. Hardcover, blue cloth. 557pp., Index.

The case started in a gigantic Harlem revival meeting where the assembled sinners suddenly discovered that one of them was a corpse. It led to a hellish fight in a pitch-black building where no one was sure who was killing whom. It took a wild detour in a swank apartment house where an old man was seduced by a teen-aged hooker, his young wife was led astray by a handsome stranger, and a killer made hay while the others made love. And following every step of the way through sin city were Coffin Ed Johnson and Grave Digger Jones, two black supercops who preached their sermons with long-barreled pistols and big. hard fists. Coffin Ed Johnson and Grave Digger Jones are in hard-hitting action in FOR LOVE OF IMABELLE, THE REAL COOL KILLERS and THE CRAZY KILL, and will be again in future Signet editions of this great Chester Himes series! ‘Wild, sexy, fast!’ - Kansas City. Chester Bomar Himes (July 29, 1909 - November 12, 1984) was an American writer. His works include If He Hollers Let Him Go and a series of Harlem Detective novels. In 1958 he won France's Grand Prix de Littérature Policière. Chester Himes was born in Jefferson City, Missouri, on July 29, 1909. He grew up in a middle-class home in Missouri. When Himes was about 12 years old, his father took a teaching job at Branch Normal College (now University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff), and soon a tragedy took place that would profoundly shape Himes's view of race relations. He had misbehaved and his mother made him sit out a gunpowder demonstration that he and his brother, Joseph Jr., were supposed to conduct during a school assembly. Working alone, Joseph mixed the chemicals; they exploded in his face. Rushed to the nearest hospital, the blinded boy was refused treatment. ‘That one moment in my life hurt me as much as all the others put together,’ Himes wrote in The Quality of Hurt. ‘I loved my brother. I had never been separated from him and that moment was shocking, shattering, and terrifying. We pulled into the emergency entrance of a white people's hospital. White clad doctors and attendants appeared. I remember sitting in the back seat with Joe watching the pantomime being enacted in the car's bright lights. A white man was refusing; my father was pleading. Dejectedly my father turned away; he was crying like a baby. My mother was fumbling in her handbag for a handkerchief; I hoped it was for a pistol.’ Chester's parents were Joseph Sandy Himes and Estelle Bomar Himes; his father was a peripatetic black college professor of industrial trades and his mother was a teacher at Scotia Seminary prior to marriage; the family eventually settled in Cleveland, Ohio. His parents' marriage was unhappy and eventually ended in divorce. Himes attended East High School in Cleveland, Ohio. While he was a freshman at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, he was expelled for playing a prank. In late 1928 he was arrested and sentenced to jail and hard labor for 20 to 25 years for armed robbery and sent to Ohio Penitentiary. In prison, he wrote short stories and had them published in national magazines. Himes stated that writing in prison and being published was a way to earn respect from guards and fellow inmates, as well as to avoid violence. His first stories appeared in 1931 in The Bronzeman and, starting in 1934, in Esquire. His story ‘To What Red Hell’ (published in Esquire in 1934) as well as to his novel Cast the First Stone - only much later republished unabridged as Yesterday Will Make You Cry (1998) - dealt with the catastrophic 1930 prison fire Himes witnessed at Ohio Penitentiary in 1930. In 1934 Himes was transferred to London Prison Farm and in April 1936 he was released on parole into his mother's custody. Following his release he worked at part-time jobs and at the same time continued to write. During this period he came in touch with Langston Hughes, who facilitated Himes's contacts with the world of literature and publishing. In 1936 Himes married Jean Johnson. In the 1940s Himes spent time in Los Angeles, working as a screenwriter but also producing two novels, If He Hollers Let Him Go and The Lonely Crusade that charted the experiences of the wave of black in-migrants, drawn by the city's defense industries, and their dealings with the established black community, fellow workers, unions and management. He also provided an analysis of the Zoot Suit Riots for The Crisis, the magazine of the NAACP. By the 1950s Himes had decided to settle in France permanently, a country he liked in part due to his popularity in literary circles. In Paris, Himes' was the contemporary of the political cartoonist Oliver Harrington and fellow expatriate writers Richard Wright, James Baldwin, and William Gardner Smith. It was in Paris in the late 1950s that Chester met his second wife Lesley Himes, née Packard, when she went to interview him. She was a journalist at the Herald Tribune, where she wrote her own fashion column, ‘Monica’. He described her as ‘Irish-English with blue-gray eyes and very good looking’, he also saw her courage and resilience, Chester said to Lesley, ‘You’re the only true color-blind person I’ve ever met in my life.’ After he suffered a stroke, in 1959, Lesley quit her job and nursed him back to health. She cared for him for the rest of his life, and worked with him as his informal editor, proofreader, confidante and, as the director, Van Peebles dubbed her, ‘his watchdog’. After a long engagement, they were married in 1978. Lesley and Chester faced adversities as a mixed race couple but they prevailed. Theirs was a life lived with an unparallelled passion and great humor. Their circle of political colleagues and creative friends included not only such towering figures as Langston Hughes and Richard Wright; it also included figures such as Malcolm X, Carl Van Vechten, Picasso, Jean Miotte, Ollie Harrington, Nikki Giovanni and Ishmael Reed. Bohemian life in Paris would in turn lead them to the South of France and finally on to Spain, where they lived until Chester’s death in 1984. In 1969 Himes moved to Moraira, Spain, where he died in 1984 from Parkinson's Disease. He is buried at Benissa cemetery., U. S. A.: Department Of The Army. Very Good. Periodical.

A suspenseful car chase is punctuated by crunching glass and bullet holes, but when it ends the excitement fizzles, and Sam heads off to the Army to cool his heels for several months before the story picks up again. Truscott ( Dress Gray ) stacks up classic themes of courage, honor and men under fire without paying much attention to plausibility. Readers who willingly suspend disbelief will enjoy a solid men's adventure yarn with loving descriptions of cars and their capabilities, and action scenes full of derring-do. 1990 Truscott, author of Army Blue (LJ 8/89) and Dress Gray (LJ 1/1/79), has the makings of another hit here in this novel of old-fashioned honor and courage up against raw, violent political power. Major Sam Butterfield, en route to his new base in Kentucky, sees a man being savagely beaten and charges to the rescue. He ends up over his head in hot water; the man he rescued is blackmailing the political boss of southern Illinois, and Sam has accidentally been handed the evidence. When a friend who helps him escape is murdered, Sam, together with pool shark Johnny Gee and an old girlfriend in the governor's office, stalks the politician to get evidence that will put him away forever.

She has faced a lot of sorrow in her life, but she has also experienced many miracles. Her first brush with the miraculous occurred when she was five years old. The school she attended was very close to her home, and she walked to school every day. One day, while walking, she was hit by a truck. She remembered talking to a lady dressed in white and light blue who told her that she was not going to die because it was not her time and that her mother needed her. She had injured her right arm; the main nerve was cut, and she couldnt feel anything. Even so, God gave her back use of her arm and hand againtruly a miracle. And this was only the beginning for Betty; she later suffered three strokes, the strokes were on holy week the week before Easter, and exactly one year apart. All three of them. Her memoir makes clear that no matter what we have to endure in life, we have to remember if we make God and Christ our first priority, believe in them wholeheartedly, and never lose faith, they will always be there for us.

Four centuries ago, and fourteen years before the Mayflower, a group of men—led by a one-armed ex-pirate, an epileptic aristocrat, a reprobate cleric and a government spy—left London aboard a fleet of three ships to start a new life in America. They arrived in Virginia in the spring of 1607 and set about trying to create a settlement on a tiny island in the James River. Despite their shortcomings, and against the odds, they built Jamestown, a ramshackle outpost that laid the foundations of the British Empire and the United States of America. Drawing on new discoveries, neglected sources and manuscript collections scattered across the world, Savage Kingdom challenges the textbook image of Jamestown as a mere money-making venture. It reveals a reckless, daring enterprise led by outcasts of the Old World who found themselves interlopers in a new one. It charts their journey into a beautiful landscape and a sophisticated culture that they found both ravishing and alien, which they yearned to possess but threatened to destroy. They called their new home a "savage kingdom," but it was the savagery they had experienced in Europe that had driven them across the ocean and which they hoped to escape by building in America "one of the most glorious nations under the sun." An intimate story in an epic setting, Woolley shows how the land of Pocahontas came to be drawn into a new global order, reaching from London to the Orinoco Delta, from the warring kingdoms of Angola to the slave markets of Mexico, from the gates of the Ottoman Empire to the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. ., HarperCollins, 2007, Andrews McMeel Publishing.

Roy’s Fiddle Magic Method will teach you an interesting variety of fiddle songs presented in a systematic “one-step-at-a-time” manner. Country fiddling is an honored part of the American tradition. The “Rural South” produced a rough country style that is now called “old time” music. Bluegrass is a fast-paced virtuoso style rooted in early country, gospel and blues music. Fiddling, like social dancing, has undergone a continuous broadening of scope with each generation. Some of the most recent Great American Fiddlers include; Johnny Gimble, Benny Thomasson, Kenny Baker, Mark O’Conner, Vassar Clements, Benny Martin, Clark Kessinger, Herman Johnson, Howdy Forrester, Byron Berline, Richard Greene, Chubby Wise and of course, Roy Clark. Roy Clark’s exceptional talent on both the banjo and the guitar is so well-known that many people forget that he is also an outstanding fiddler. But if you’ve ever seen Roy “smokin”on his fiddle in concert, you know that he is one of the best. If you want to take the guesswork out of learning the country fiddle, Roy Clark's Fiddle Magic Method will show you the way. As you work through this best selling Santorella Publication you will learn an interesting variety of fiddle songs presented in a systematic “one step at a time” manner. In addition, you’ll acquire essential note-reading and music theory skills that will help you communicate efficiently with other musicians.

Nakedness, Death, and the Number Zero: Poems
Author:

Haxton, Brooks

Title:

Nakedness, Death, and the Number Zero: Poems

ISBN:

0375412484

As its title suggests, this book embraces everything basic in our existence, from our naked beginnings (the book opens with the birth of the poet's twin daughters), to our attempts to master our world with mathematics, poetry, and other products of the human consciousness. It contains long poems that are virtually short stories in verse -- "Teenage Ikon" is about the inevitable trouble when best friends fight over a girl -- and brief, elegant lyrics the reader will memorize instantly.<P>Haxton is unembarrassed to write tender love poems, but he has a sense of humor about himself. See the poem "Author's Bio, " which begins, "Son of a Maori priestess and a Tasmanian pirate, / Brooks Haxton at two was thrown as a human sacrifice / from the gunwale of a careening brig..." Readers should delight in his sparkling reflections on friendship, nature, sex, marriage, and perception.
