Considine and Pete Runyon had once been friends, back in the days when both were cowhands. But when Runyon married the woman Considine loved, the two parted ways. Runyon settled down and became a sheriff. Considine took up robbing banks. Now Considine is planning a raid on the bank at Obaro, a plan that will pit him against Runyon . . . and lead to riches or suicide. The one thing he never counted on was meeting a strong, beautiful woman and her stubborn father, hell-bent on traveling alone through Apache territory to a new life. Suddenly Considine must choose between revenge and redemption—and either choice could be the last one he makes. From the Paperback edition.

High Lonesome is a darkly comic, fiercely tragic, and strikingly original odyssey into American life. This collection by the author of Airships and Bats Out of Hell explores lost moments in time with intensity, emotion, and an eye to the past. In "Uncle High Lonesome," a young man recalls his Uncle Peter, whose even temper was marred only by his drinking binges, which would unleash moments of rage hinting at his much deeper distress. Fishing is transformed into a life-altering, almost mystical event in "A Creature in the Bay of St. Louis," when a huge fish caught on a line threatens to pull a young boy, and his entire world with him, underwater and out to sea. And in "Snerd and Niggero," a deep friendship between two men is inspired by the loss of a woman they both loved, a woman who was mistress to one and wife to the other. Viewed through memory and time's distance, Hannah's characters are brightly illuminated figures from a lost time, whose occassionally bleak lives are still uncommonly true.

High Lonesome is a pasture on a West Texas ranch, a state of being, an affecting personal mythology. Poet Patricia Lee Lewis writes, "Think how brambles catch her petticoats, hold them 'til they tear, feed on blood....Say the old woman can find her way, can feel the thorns of walls," and "From her kneeling place between two great stones, she sends her voice." These are poems of landscape and family, heart and perspective. "High Lonesome pulls you into the momentum of its sounds with urgency, shock, serenity and arrival. The language of Patricia Lee Lewis is devoted to noticing. Her poems digest the howling, look at what comforts, what invades to do harm, what remains." - Anne Love Woodhull Patricia Lee Lewis was born and raised in Texas, where her three children were also born. For over 30 years she has lived and worked at Patchwork Farm Retreat in Western Massachusetts. She holds an MFA degree in Creative Writing from Vermont College, and a BA from Smith College, Phi Beta Kappa. Beloved mentor of many writers, leader of frequent writing retreats both nationally and internationally, she has also been the publisher of The Patchwork Journal. A grant in 2011, from the Massachusetts Cultural Council enabled her to help establish a writing program at her local library. Trained to teach English to speakers of other languages, Patricia and friends volunteer in Guatemala. Her first book of poems, A Kind of Yellow, was awarded first place by Writers Digest International.

Cody Winters, a former lawman and most recently a trapper in the rugged northern wilderness of Arizona, was headed for Camp Wood—a town where he hoped to settle down and begin a new life for himself. He would soon learn that strangers were not always welcomed in Camp Wood. Those that stayed too long typically ended up at the undertakers. From the moment he rode into town, he fell under the critical sharp-eyed gaze of the always ruthless and often corrupt town marshal. As Cody rode up the street, he fell under the curious blue-eyed gaze of another set of eyes as well. They belonged to Miss Holly Granger, the beautiful daughter of a prosperous cattle rancher. The rancher’s daughter and the former lawman would soon meet and, from that moment on, see their lives swept away toward an unforeseen adventure, and with it ... hidden danger at every turn. “This riveting story of the Old West is packed with adventure, danger, old-fashion frontier justice, and steamy romance.” —the Author

L, conversion oriented/heart, and metaphysical/mind--bluegrass falls into the categories of ritual and conversion. Unlike Sylvan's model of popular music exhibiting characteristics of African spirit possession religions, bluegrass emphasizes the heart aspect over the body aspect of the experience of music. Understanding how bluegrass displays a certain type of spirituality led me to formulate the relationship between evangelicalism and bluegrass in terms of an analogy. Noncharismatic forms of Protestantism are compared to traditional bluegrass and charismatic or Pentecostal forms of Protestantism are compared to forms of bluegrass that are considered to be on the boundaries of bluegrass music. Making this analogy shows how bluegrass represents a type of spirituality that values an emotional response to religion that is not understood as transcending normal consciousness, but is enhanced by learning and intellect. In contrast, as shown by Sylvan, many forms of American popular music va.
