As Charles Frazier's novel Cold Mountain dramatized, dissenters from the Confederacy lived in mortal danger throughout the South. In scattered pockets from the Carolinas to the frontier in Texas, some men who clung to a belief in the Union or an unwillingness to preserve the slaveholding Confederacy died at the hands of their own neighbors. Brush Men and Vigilantes tells the story of how dissent, fear, and economics developed into mob violence in a corner of Texas -- the Sulphur Forks river valley northeast of Dallas. Authors David Pickering and Judy Falls have combed through court records, newspapers, letters, and other primary sources and have collected extended-family lore to relate the details of how vigilantes captured and killed more than a dozen men. Unlike most other parts of Texas, at the onset of the Civil War the Sulphur Forks river valley had a significant population of Upper Southerners, some of whom spoke out against secession, objected to enlisting in the Confederate army, or associated with "Union men". For some of these dissenters safety meant disappearing into the tangled brush thickets of the region. Betrayed by links to a well-known Union guerrilla from the Sulphur Forks area, some of these men were captured, tried in mock courts, and hanged. Still others met their death by sniper fire or private execution, as did brush man Frank Chamblee, who after cleverly eluding his enemies for several years, was finally gunned down after the war, reportedly by one of the area's most prominent men. This carefully researched and well-written account not only tells the story of the brush men's ordeal, but also provides insight into the emotions and thought processes of theTexans who resorted to extralegal means to protect their communities from all enemies, even imaginary ones. Anyone with an interest in the new history of the Civil War or of Texas should find much to digest in this compelling book.
Today's life certainly holds it's challenges for women but focusing on the richness of God's abundant life makes facing pressure easier.
Here is a beautifully written first-person account of what it took to strike out and succeed as an independent woman in prewar Japan - and reap the rewards in the postwar era. The chronicle begins as the memoirs of Endo Nami, born some eighty years ago in a farm village in Japan's north country, and ends as the success story of Yamazaki Ikue, chief executive of a large chain of hairdressing and beauty salons. Opening on a childhood filled with dreams, ancestor cults, and the gods of nature, the story follows the heroine's attempts to break the mold of a rigidly paternalistic society and her eventual escape to Tokyo. Enduring a lengthy, frustrating, and often humiliating apprenticeship, then a series of near-failures in her business, she eventually finds herself on the road to material success. Both as a girl and as a woman, Yamazaki Ikue relied on geomancy, astrology, and the revelations of spirit mediums to interpret the past, present, and future. She relates her life with wonderment and lyricism, combining a devotion to magical folk traditions with the hardheadedness of a modern-day businesswoman.
The God in the Ink is a warm, beguiling work of great beauty. Lomer combines a novelist's sense of pace and story with a poet's fine ear for language. This intriguing story chronicles Claire Loone's childhood and extended family history in rural Tasmania, and follows her search for an understanding of place and 'home'. Kathryn Lomer won the 2000 Josephine Ulrick prize for poetry.
