Ted Conover The first time Ted Conover was asked if he was a tramp he wasn't sure how to respond. The son of a successful lawyer, Conover had been jumping on and off trains for months, riding the rails as research for his college anthropology thesis. He certainly looked the part; even his parents didn't recognize him when he showed up on their doorstep. In fact, he had entered the life so completely that when another tramp tried to jump into his boxcar (a violation of hobo etiquette), Conover barely hesitated before stepping on the man's hand, sending him flying off the moving train. I guess I am, he answered uneasily, all too aware of the vast expanseeconomic, social, intellectualseparating him from his veteran-tramp interlocutor. It is this expanse that Conover has spent the last two decades exploring, first in Rolling Nowhere (1984), the cult classic he wrote about his hobo travels, and then in his three subsequent books Coyotes (1987), Whiteout (1991), and Newjack (2000)about Mexican illegal aliens, Aspen celebrities, and prison guards. Together, they have cemented Conover's reputation as one of the finest participatory journalists of his generation. Those who have read only one or two of Conover's works might cubbyhole him as the bard of gritty, rough-and-tumble subcultures. While not untrue, the description is incomplete. It obscures Conover's real subject: the fine lines separating us from them, and the elaborate rituals and markersparts of town, railroad tracks and boulevards, places in the heart and mind, he writes in Coyotes that we have developed to bolster such distinctions. In Conover's hands, migrant workers, rootless hoboes, and prison guards become vivid, morally ambiguous characters, deserving of praise and scorn, admiration and pity. Without sacrificing the commitment of the early-twentieth-century muckrakers, or the gusto of the nineteenth-century literary adventurers in whose footsteps he walks, Conover combines a sociologist's eye for detail with a novelist's sense of drama and compassion, as The New York Times 's Michiko Kakutani wrote of Coyotes . Born in 1958 in Okinawa, Japan, where his father was stationed as a navy pilot, Conover was raised in an affluent Denver neighborhood. In high school, he was bused to a newly desegregated school (50 percent black, 40 percent white, and 10 percent Hispanic), and he credits the experience with inspiring his love of anthropology (a discipline he calls philosophy as lived by real people). I learned that one's own culture is not necessarily normative, he says, that there are many ways of looking at the world. In 1980, after three years of studying anthropology at Amherst, Conover wearied of the college's elitism. Conover proposed to ride the rails for his senior thesis. He wanted to learn whether hoboes were great American rebels (renegades, conscientious objectors to the nine-to-five work world), infantrymen in the army of homeless who wer Language Arts & Disciplines Language Arts & Disciplines eBook, Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group

Dimensions: 8.2in. x 5.5in. x 1.0in.From the private investigator who cracked open the case that led to the conviction of Warren Jeffs, the maniacal prophet of the polygamous Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints (FLDS), comes the page-turning, horrifying story of how a rogue sect used sex, money, and power disguised under a faade of religion to further criminal activities and a madmans vision.
