Tetl's skin is brown, his eyes are black, and his hair is long. He's different from the other children, whose taunts wound him deeply, leaving him confused and afraid. But Tetl's grandmother knows the ancient teachings of their Aztec ancestors, and how they viewed the earth as alive with sacred meaning. With her help, he learns to listen to the mountains, wind, corn, and stones. Tetl's journey from self-doubt to proud acceptance of his Nahuatl heritage is told in a series of powerful poems, beautifully expressed in both English and Spanish. Vivid illustrations celebrate nature's redemptive powers, offering a perfect complement to the poignant story.

Joe Hayes (Santa Fe, New Mexico) is one of America's premier storytellers.

The transition is wonderfully seamless.
Written during the last eight months of his life, these diaries are an unfiltered narration of the life of Joe Orton, the extremely successful and famous British playwright. On August 9, 1967, Orton was murdered in London by Kenneth Halliwell, his lover of 16 years, who bludgeoned him with a hammer and then immediately committed suicide. Halliwell left a note that said that all would be explained if the police read Orton's diaries. In the diaries, Orton narrates his literary success, his sexual escapades--at his mother's funeral, with a dwarf in Brighton, and, extensively, in Tangiers--and the breakdown of his "marriage" to Halliwell, the relationship that transformed his life and ultimately ended it. "Escritos durante los ultimos ocho meses de su vida, estos diarios son una narracion sin restriccion alguna de la vida de Joe Orton, el sumamente exitoso y famoso dramaturgo ingles. El 9 de agosto de 1967, en Londres, Orton fue asesinado a martillazos por Kenneth Halliwell, su amante de 16 anos, quien se suicido inmediatamente despues. Halliwell dejo una nota que decia que todo quedaria explicado cuando la policia leyera los diarios de Orton. En los diarios, Orton narra su exito literario, sus aventuras sexuales--en el funeral de su madre, con un enano en Brighton y, profusamente, en Tanger--y la descomposicion de su "matrimonio" a Halliwell, la relacion que le cambio la vida y que termino por destruirla."

This fascinating glimpse into South America's past focuses on the works of four European voyagers who came to SouthAmerica and left a legacy of travel writing in their wake: Jos6Celestino Mutis, a Spanish botanist and doctor; Alexandervon Humboldt, a German geographer; Maria Graham, a British historian; and Flora Tristan, a French feminist and labor activist whose father was Peruvian. Each took on his or her voyage as a personal endeavor, and collectively their travels covered the Andes from its northern traces in Venezuela to the southern heights of Chile and Arequipa. Their writing contributed to the construction of a complex map of the Andes in which many levels of physical and social geography may be read. By analyzing the ravelers' narratives, illustrations, and maps, Angela Pdrez-Mejia unravels the rich complexities of the colonial travel experience, explores its impact on both the object of description and the traveler's subjectivity, and the collective readership seeking a discourse of nationhood.
In this novel, Sharpe turns his attention to a very minor public school, taking hilarious pot-shots at the public school system. The humorous and wild incidents include hoaxes, chases, car crashes, shootings and general mayhem.
