Hiding during the day and running through the night, Jonah must elude the men sent to capture him and the bounty hunters out to claim the reward on his head. There is one person, however, who, once on his trail, never lets him fully out of sight: Angel, herself a slave, yet with a remarkably free spirit. In Jonah, she sees her own way to freedom, and so sets out to follow him. Bristling with breathtaking adventure, Chasing the North Star is deftly grounded in historical fact yet always gripping and poignant as the story follows Jonah and Angel through the close calls and narrow escapes of a fearsome world. It is a celebration of the power of the human spirit to persevere in the face of great adversity. And it is Robert Morgan at his considerable best.

The art that I make takes place about one step away from the normal stir of human activity. --Richard Artschwager This book documents Richard Artschwager's last series of work, shown posthumously at Gagosian Gallery, New York, in 2014. For five decades, Richard Artschwager has forged a maverick path by confounding the generic limits of art while making the visual comprehension of space and the everyday objects that occupy it strangely unfamiliar. For his last series of work, Artschwager returned to an image, the isolated Running Man, that fascinated and inspired him for twenty years. About the works, Robert Morgan notes in his essay "They are remarkable...as a metaphor in reference to existence and mortality."

A "New York Times" Bestseller & Oprah's Book Club PickYoung Julie Harmon works hard as a man, they say, so hard that at times she s not sure she can stop. People depend on her to slaughter the hogs and nurse the dying. People are weak, and there is so much to do. At just seventeen she marries and moves down into the valley of Gap Creek, where perhaps life will be better.But Julie and Hank s new life in the valley, in the last years of the nineteenth century, is more complicated than the couple ever imagined. Sometimes it s hard to tell what to fear most the fires and floods or the flesh-and-blood grifters, drunks, and busybodies who insinuate themselves into their new life. To survive, they must find out whether love can keep chaos and madness at bay. Their struggles with nature, with work, with the changing century, and with the disappointments and triumphs of their union make "Gap Creek "a timeless story of a marriage."

From Thomas Jefferson's birth in 1743 to the California Gold Rush in 1849, America's westward expansion comes to life in the hands of a writer fascinated by the way individual lives link up, illuminate one another, and collectively impact history. Jefferson, a naturalist and visionary, dreamed that the United States would stretch across the North American continent, from ocean to ocean. The account of how that dream became reality unfolds in the stories of Jefferson and nine other Americans whose adventurous spirits and lust for land pushed the westward boundaries: Andrew Jackson, John "Johnny Appleseed" Chapman, David Crockett, Sam Houston, James K. Polk, Winfield Scott, Kit Carson, Nicholas Trist, and John Quincy Adams. Their stories--and those of the nameless thousands who risked their lives to settle on the frontier, displacing thou- sands of Native Americans--form an extraordinary chapter in American history that led directly to the cataclysm of the Civil War. Filled with illustrations, portraits, maps, battle plans, notes, and time lines, "Lions of the West" is a richly authoritative biography of America--its ideals, its promise, its romance, and its destiny.

Robert Morgan's newest collection of poetry is a treasury of snapshots in time, celebrating the past and present in Morgan's native region of western North Carolina and the Green River Valley. Topsoil Road features two parts, the first flowing smoothly from Cherokee history to the arrival of the poet's Welsh forebears; the second eloquently depicting the intricacies of nature and how they are subjected to the world of man.

Morgan offers detailed memories of such people and places as the thrush doctor who could heal sickness by blowing into the feverish mouth of a patient, and the Blue Hole -- the deepest, darkest pool to be found in the Green River -- where hundreds of eels would appear once every year.

Whether describing the Cherokee chief Attakullakulla in London or the way a zebra spider glides across the sky, Morgan casts each poem with elegance and a rare sense of wonder, turning minute observations of the commonplace into portraits of delicate and amazing beauty. Throughout the collection, his voice and vision remain strong as he employs an impressive range of poetic forms, including pantoums, sonnets, couplets, and blank verse. Morgan's own words may best distill the impression Topsoil Road leaves: "each cell / a hex perfect as a snowflake, / a sealed relic of sun and time / and roots of many acres fixed in crystal-tight arrays, in rows / and lattices of sweeter latin / from scattered prose of meadow, woods".

Summoning the Dead - Essays on Ron Rash (Hardcover): Randall Wilhelm, Zachary Vernon Summoning the Dead - Essays on Ron Rash (Hardcover)

R1,144 Discovery Miles 11 440 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The first book-length examination of the award-winning author of poetry and fiction firmly rooted in Appalachia Since his dramatic appearance on the southern literary stage with his debut novel, One Foot in Eden, Ron Rash has continued a prolific outpouring of award-winning poetry and fiction. His status as a regular on the New York Times Best Sellers list, coupled with his impressive critical acclaim-including two O. Henry Awards and the Frank O'Connor Award for Best International Short Fiction- attests to both his wide readership and his brilliance as a literary craftsman. In Summoning the Dead, editors Randall Wilhelm and Zackary Vernon have assembled the first book-length collection of scholarship on Ron Rash. The volume features the work of respected scholars in southern and Appalachian studies, providing a disparate but related constellation of interdisciplinary approaches to Rash's fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. The editors contend that Rash's work is increasingly relevant and important on regional, national, and global levels in part because of its popular and scholarly appeal and also its invaluable social critiques and celebrations, thus warranting academic attention. Wilhelm and Vernon argue that studying Rash is important because he encourages readers and critics alike to understand Appalachia in all its complexity and he consistently provides portrayals of the region that reveal both the beauty of its cultures and landscapes as well as the social and environmental pathologies that it continues to face. The landscapes, peoples, and cultures that emerge in Rash's work represent and respond to not only Appalachia or the South, but also to national and global cultures. Firmly rooted in the mountain South, Rash's artistic vision weaves the truths of the human condition and the perils of the human heart in a poetic language that speaks deeply to us all. Through these essays, offering a range of critical and theoretical approaches that examine important aspects of Rash's work, Wilhelm and Vernon create a foundation for the future of Rash studies. Robert Morgan, Kappa Alpha Professor of English at Cornell University and author of fourteen books of poetry and nine volumes of fiction including the New York Times bestselling novel Gap Creek, provides a foreword.

Discovered as a typewritten manuscript only after her death in 2006,Family of Earth allows us to see into the mind of the young author andAppalachian native Wilma Dykeman (1920-2006), who would become oneof the American South's most prolific and storied writers. Focusing on herchildhood in Buncombe County, Dykeman reveals a perceptive and sophisticatedunderstanding of human nature, the environment, and social justice.And yet, for her words' remarkable polish, her voice still resonates as rawand vital. Against the backdrop of early twentieth-century life in Asheville,she chronicles the touching, at times harrowing, story of her family's fortunes,plotting their rise and fall in uncertain economic times and endingwith her father's sudden death in 1934 when she was fourteen years old. Featuring a foreword by fellow North Carolinian Robert Morgan, Familyof Earth stands as a new major literary work by a groundbreaking author.

When "Gap Creek" was published in 1999, it became an instant national bestseller, attracting hundreds of thousands of readers to the story of a marriage begun with love and hope at the turn of the twentieth century. Set in the Appalachian South, it followed Julie and Hank Richards as they struggled through the first year and a half of their union. But what of the years following? What did the future hold for these memorable characters?"The Road to Gap Creek" answers those questions, as Robert Morgan takes us back into the lives of Julie and Hank as well as their children, seen through the eyes of their youngest daughter, Annie. Through Annie we watch the four Richards children create their own histories, lives that include both triumph and hardship in the face of the Great Depression and World War II. Far more than a sequel, "The Road from Gap Creek" is a moving and indelible portrait of people and their world in a time of unprecedented change, an American story told by one of the country s most acclaimed writers."
