The Tribe Of Seven Hawks Dancing from the Author: Alex Stoffel. Book II of the SEVEN-HAWKS-DANCING Trilogy. The Sioux are getting restless over in the Black Hills, and the white population is uneasy. The army is alert. Then two herds of government-allocated cattle intended for the Northern Cheyenne are missing. So are more than 20 young warriors sent to bring them to the people gathered on the reservation between the Rosebud and the tongue. Without the cattle, the people will starve—or maybe take by force that which is neccesary to survive. Two brothers, one Cheyenne (a Warchief named Bear-That-Walks-The-Sky) and the other white (named Jed who is also a deadly gunman called the Breed), must deal with the mystery before the Northern Plains again run red with blood. In the midst of this, Jed must settle some things, and help the woman he has chosen for his life to recover from injuries received in the tale told in Book I.

Time Of Grace from the Author: Ken Lamberton. ÒI hole up in my own cozy cubicle and write, considering ways to make the approaching Thanksgiving holiday not just another day in this place. In prison, hope faces east; time is measured in wake-ups.Ó Time of Grace is a remarkable book, written with great eloquence by a former science teacher who was incarcerated for twelve years for his sexual liaison with a teenage student. Far more than a Òprison memoir,Ó it is an intimate and revealing look at relationshipsÑwith fellow humans and with the surprising wildlife of the Sonoran Desert, both inside and beyond prison walls. Throughout, Ken Lamberton reflects on human relations as they mimic and defy those of the natural world, whose rhythms calibrate LambertonÕs days and years behind bars. He writes with candor about his life, while observing desert flora and fauna with the insight and enthusiasm of a professional naturalist. While he studies a tarantula digging her way out of the packed earth and observes Mexican freetail bats sailing into the evening sky, Lamberton ruminates on his crime and on the wrenching effects it has had on his wife and three daughters. He writes of his connections with his fellow inmatesÑsome of whom he teaches in prison classesÑand with the guards who control them, sometimes with inexplicable cruelty. And he unflinchingly describes a prison system that has gone horribly wrongÑa system entrapped in a self-created web of secrecy, fear, and lies. This is the final book of LambertonÕs trilogy about the twelve years he spent in prison. Readers of his earlier books will savor this last volume. Those who are only now discovering LambertonÕs distinctive voiceÑpart poet, part scientist, part teacher, and always deeply, achingly humanÑwill feel as if they are making a new friend. Gripping, sobering, and beautifully written, LambertonÕs memoir is an unforgettable exploration of crime, punishment, and the power of the human spirit.

Almond Tequila from the Author: Annie Mary Perez. Puerto San Carlos is Jake's idea of paradise. A place where he could fish all day, play his guitar, and drink tequila all day long. He has been visiting this dusty little fishing village with its colorful inhabitants and curious superstitions and customs for the past eight summers. When Socorro Reyes vows to put a brujeria on her former friend for cheating her, Jake persuades her to let karma handle it. When Ricardo Avila fails to carry out his dead mother's wishes, the man receives an unexpected visitor. When Xochitl Madrigal asks Jake to captain El Barco de Libros, little does he know that they will be sailing into the eye of a storm. Between all this and trying to save the endangered sea turtles, it turns out to be an eventful summer, leading Jake to make a life changing decision. Captivating and descriptive, Almond Tequila evokes the richness of Baja California where stunning scenery, aquatic wildlife, tasty cuisine, and warm melodies soothe the soul. The reader is immersed in folkloric culture, gentle surf, island breezes, and the amazing flavor of chocolate clams.-Jose Chavez, Author, Estrellitas y Nopales Little Stars and Cactus Annie Mary Perez was born in Los Angeles, California, and earned her B.A. at California State University, Los Angeles.
