"The fulfilled renown of Moby-Dick and of As I Lay Dying is augmented by Blood Meridian, since Cormac McCarthy is the worthy disciple both of Melville and Faulkner," writes esteemed literary scholar Harold Bloom in his Introduction to the Modern Library edition. "I venture that no other living American novelist, not even Pynchon, has given us a book as strong and memorable." Cormac McCarthy's masterwork, Blood Meridian, chronicles the brutal world of the Texas-Mexico borderlands in the mid-nineteenth century. Its wounded hero, the teenage Kid, must confront the extraordinary violence of the Glanton gang, a murderous cadre on an official mission to scalp Indians and sell those scalps. Loosely based on fact, the novel represents a genius vision of the historical West, one so fiercely realized that since its initial publication in 1985 the canon of American literature has welcomed Blood Meridian to its shelf. "A classic American novel of regeneration through violence," declares Michael Herr. "McCarthy can only be compared to our greatest writers." From the Hardcover edition.

A lady, the desert, the army and the Apaches This is the account of the life of a young army wife who followed her husband-a second lieutenant of infantry-after the turbulent years of the American Civil War, in which he had served, to what was considered the wildest and most remote of frontier outposts in the American south west. Life within the Army in Arizona came as something of a cultural shock to this gentle lady of New England who knew nothing of housekeeping-indeed she did not even know how to pack. This absorbing book takes us together with its author on a rights of passage experience as she lived, travelled, camped and came to have affection for the untamed land. Her husband was constantly engaged in campaigns against the Apache and Martha Summerhayes experience of them in peace and war also adds flavour to this unforgettable life of a woman in frontier days. Available in soft cover and hard cover with dust jacket for collectors.

Janet L. Miller is one of the most important and influential curriculum theorists of our time. "Sounds of Silence Breaking" presents a broad range of her writing from the last two decades. This book contains portraits of self-complicating work that disrupt unitary and normative conceptions of women, autobiography, and curriculum. Miller reconceptualizes curriculum theory through the application of her own theories, as well as those of other important figures in the movement. She also utilizes her extensive collaborative research with K-12 teachers and juxtaposes her essays in ways that invite the reader to view them as self- and cross-interrogating. Read together, these pieces underscore how changing narrative and interpretive practices have framed and re-framed constructions of her gendered work and selves as -academic woman-, -curriculum theorist-, and -qualitative researcher-."
