Sarah's Key

Editura: St. Martin's Press

Anul aparitiei: 2007

Paris, July 1942: Sarah, a ten year-old girl, is brutally arrested with her family by the French police in the Vel' d'Hiv' roundup, but not before she locks her younger brother in a cupboard in the family's apartment, thinking that she will be back within a few hours. Paris, May 2002: On Vel' d'Hiv's 60th anniversary, journalist Julia Jarmond is asked to write an article about this black day in France's past. Through her contemporary investigation, she stumbles onto a trail of long-hidden family secrets that connect her to Sarah. Julia finds herself compelled to retrace the girl's ordeal, from that terrible term in the Vel d'Hiv', to the camps, and beyond. As she probes into Sarah's past, she begins to question her own place in France, and to reevaluate her marriage and her life. Tatiana de Rosnay offers us a brilliantly subtle, compelling portrait of France under occupation and reveals the taboos and silence that surround this painful episode.

The Rounders

Editura: University of New Mexico Press

Anul aparitiei: 2010

The bawdy and moving story of two contemporary bronco busters, The Rounders, originally published in 1960, was Max Evans's first novel and is still his best known work, thanks largely to the success of the 1965 movie version starring Henry Fonda and Glenn Ford. Acclaimed for its realistic depiction of modern cowboying and for its humor, it is also a very serious work, described by the author as a tragicomedy. "It is a book to read if you are in need of a good laugh or if you are tired of reading cowboy novels where there are no cows and where the cowhands never stop waiting around the local saloon for a final showdown with the visiting Indians."--San Francisco Chronicle "One of the funniest cowpoke yarns to come off the presses in many a fall roundup."--Denver Post

The Big Ranch Country

Editura: Texas Tech University Press

Anul aparitiei: 1999

J. W. Williams s classic survey of the big ranches of the Southwest reaches deep into the stories of key players in American ranching history. Colorful tales of the finest cutting horse, the meanest cow thief, the most princely cowman of them all--even the hair-raising details of gunplay with a badman whose name cannot be revealed--are told in bare-knuckle fashion that leaves no cushion to soften the truth.This is an account of many journeys by car down roads that led to roundup grounds and to chuck with the cowboys; to the ranch homes of those who built the great cattle empires; to the Burnetts, the Spurs, the Pitchforks, and the Matadors; and to many points along the way where ranching history was made. A master storyteller, Williams connects these sites to living legends of the cattle and beef industry. He spent the night beneath the stars in Colonel Goodnight s Palo Duro Canyon, drove across the state line near the original XIT fence northwest of Amarillo, and glided along the base of the impressive Sawtooth Mountain for out in the Reynolds Kingdom of the Long X, half a hundred miles west of Fort Davis.The Big Ranch Country reaches far up into the Texas Panhandle, deep into the ...

The American Cowboy: A Photographic History

Editura: Lyons Press

Anul aparitiei: 2004

In his introduction to The American Cowboy, Bob Edgar speaks of a "far-sighted fraternity"-the photographers such as Belden, Huffman, Koerner, Smith, and Kendrick-who recorded images of cattle drives, frontier towns, roundup camps, cowboys on the range, chuck wagons, and horses and cattle. They probably knew that they were recording for posterity both a dramatic and emotive period in history and a changing country, in this case the cattlemen''s frontier, which existed from the end of the Civil War to the early part of the twentieth century. Through the work of a small number of photographers whose pictures have been selected from museums and state historical society collections, The American Cowboy''s stirring series of images capture the movement of life on the range. That this way of life no longer exists lends additional poignancy. Now, as our frontier extends itself into a new millennium with disparate concerns, The American Cowboy offers an evocative message of "a dream and a forgetting, a chapter forever closed."
