Book excerpt: Wade Talbot relishes the chaos of journalism. He starts as editor of weekly newspaper in North Carolina and becomes a reporter in New York just as the civil rights struggles explode into demonstrations across the country. Becky Anderson leaps from her little southern town to college, to New York and then to Europe, where through sheer grit she becomes a force in the movie business. Wade romanticizes his boyhood in the hills of home. Becky, perennially short of money, can’t wait to break away. But something clicks between them. They compete, they quarrel, they savage each other, and one day in the deep, rolling hills of old Virginia they come together. MOUNTAIN GIRL is an inside look at the 1960s Amercian civil rights movement, a gritty travelogue with stops in Paris and an island in the Mediterranean, and a sexual duel in which both partners learn and grow. Becky loses a baby. She and Wade begin to hike the 2,200 mile Appalachian Trail. Wade finds, finally, a theme for the novel he wants to write. But at a cost. He walks alone at the end to keep a promise, to climb a special mountain.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This biography offers students and general readers an insightful look into Jerry Garcia's creative genius as a founding member of The Grateful Dead and the various influences on his work as he contributed to the countercultural movement in the United States. As a founding member of The Grateful Dead, Jerry Garcia became famous for his work as a key creative force in this band. Known for free flowing jam sessions, psychedelic drug use, and a loyal fan base, The Grateful Dead combined a variety of genres, including blues, folk and country rock to create new and different sounds than those used by other popular bands at the time, including The Rolling Stones and The Beatles. Garcia contributed significantly to an era in American music that was influenced by social changes, war, and political strife. Yet Garcia's creative genius expanded beyond the fame that came as lead guitarist and vocalist for the Dead. From the time he was a young boy learning to play the piano in the Excelsior district of San Francisco, Garcia explored various genres and forms of music and visual art. This biography offers students and general readers an insightful look into Garcia's creative genius and the various influences on his work as he contributed to the counter-cultural movement in the United States.

Book Country Boys and Redneck Women

Download or read book Country Boys and Redneck Women written by Diane Pecknold and published by Univ. Press of Mississippi. This book was released on 2016-02-08 with total page 304 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Country music boasts a long tradition of rich, contradictory gender dynamics, creating a world where Kitty Wells could play the demure housewife and the honky-tonk angel simultaneously, Dolly Parton could move from traditionalist "girl singer" to outspoken trans rights advocate, and current radio playlists can alternate between the reckless masculinity of bro-country and the adolescent girlishness of Taylor Swift. In this follow-up volume to A Boy Named Sue, some of the leading authors in the field of country music studies reexamine the place of gender in country music, considering the ways country artists and listeners have negotiated gender and sexuality through their music and how gender has shaped the way that music is made and heard. In addition to shedding new light on such legends as Wells, Parton, Loretta Lynn, and Charley Pride, it traces more recent shifts in gender politics through the performances of such contemporary luminaries as Swift, Gretchen Wilson, and Blake Shelton. The book also explores the intersections of gender, race, class, and nationality in a host of less expected contexts, including the prisons of WWII-era Texas, where the members of the Goree All-Girl String Band became the unlikeliest of radio stars; the studios and offices of Plantation Records, where Jeannie C. Riley and Linda Martell challenged the social hierarchies of a changing South in the 1960s; and the burgeoning cities of present-day Brazil, where "college country" has become one way of negotiating masculinity in an age of economic and social instability.

Book Chasing the Albino Pygmy Giraffe

Download or read book Chasing the Albino Pygmy Giraffe written by Charles Haddad and published by Barking Dogwood Press. This book was released on 2021-06-08 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: “Chasing the Albino Pygmy Giraffe” is a laugh aloud yet insightful parody about how little Chinese and Americans understand one another. The story unfolds as a college professor leads a group of American and Chinese students 3,500 miles across the heart of Western China down the fabled Silk Road. Along the way, the travelers brave everything from squat toilets and donkey meat to insurrection and the Red Army. Author Charles Haddad is eminently qualified to spoof Chinese and Americans alike. Not only has he seen more of China than most Chinese themselves. Haddad speaks Chinese and is well versed in Chinese history and culture. While fiction, Haddad’s tale rings true. It offers great insight for those worrying about the future of Sino-American relations. And worry they should, suggests this humorous adventure story.
