At the heart of this landmark collection of essays rests a single question: What impact, good or bad, immediate or long-range, did Lewis and Clark’s journey have on the Indians whose homelands they traversed? The nine writers in this volume each provide their own unique answers; from Pulitzer prize-winner N. Scott Momaday, who offers a haunting essay evoking the voices of the past; to Debra Magpie Earling’s illumination of her ancestral family, their survival, and the magic they use to this day; to Mark N. Trahant’s attempt to trace his own blood back to Clark himself; and Roberta Conner’s comparisons of the explorer’s journals with the accounts of the expedition passed down to her. Incisive and compelling, these essays shed new light on our understanding of this landmark journey into the American West. From the Trade Paperback edition.

The Roman conquest of Britain is shattered in 60 C.E. by Boudica, a mother, a warrior and a rebel queen, who once united the tribes against a common enemy. Now, three hundred years later, the prolonged Iron Age in Northern Europe sees the British Isles dominated by women, for these superstitious tribes believe now that only the Mother-Warrior-Queen trinity can safeguard them against any foreign foe. Women are deified; men are little more than slaves. But Arawn, slave-son of a salt merchant, believes that men have worth. When he tries to save a Pictish slave boy from sacrificial death, he accidentally murders his sister and her Druid. Having no other choice but to flee, he embarks on a journey from his British homeland across Gaul and on to Rome, seeking out the powerful priests of the new one true god, who holds men above women. He can escape the British warrior-women hunting him, but he can't escape is own demons, for the journey is long and his bitterness towards women is strong...

It's said that the eyes are the windows to the soul. Well, what would it say of your soul if your eyes had been viewing a form of hell for a span of 12 years? For the average person, they most likely would have become a reflection, or victim, of their surroundings. But, today we are not dealing with your average person. This collection of writings is a candid and vivid look into the mind, emotions, thoughts and experiences of one of Texas Death Row's most valiant, and undervalued, political prisoners. Without fear, Tony bares what makes him weak and strong, unconcerned with embarrassment or ridicule. These stories tell the tale of America's biggest contradiction. These stories tell the tale of hope and hopelessness battling each other. They tell the tale of a man who has found himself and the reason to love life intensely.

From its founding in 1648, the Académie royale de peinture et de sculpture and its successor, the École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts in Paris, were devoted to the Greek model. Mythology and poetry, along with the study of sculpture, were the foundations of academic teaching there. As a result, Greek gods and heroes were reborn in innumerable works by pupils and teachers of the École. This lavishly illustrated book explores the impact of the poet Homer on four centuries of French artists through the lens of the École’s superb collections of paintings, prints, and sculptures. The École was the most important venue for academic training of artists in Europe as well as for many nineteenth-century American artists who studied in Paris, including Thomas Eakins and John Singer Sargent. The École’s collections—which feature works by great artists who were first students and later instructors (François LeMoine, Jacques-Louis David, and Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres)—were intended to enhance students’ taste through study and emulation. With illuminating texts by prominent French scholars and a preface by George Steiner on the reception of Homer in France, The Legacy of Homer examines the historic and artistic importance of the works housed in the École and pays homage to Homer, the great source that inspired them.

The late fifth century BC was the golden age of ancient Athens. Under the leadership of the renowned soldier-statesman Perikles, Athenians began rebuilding the Akropolis, where they created the still awe-inspiring Parthenon. Athenians also reached a zenith of artistic achievement in sculpture, vase painting, and architecture, which provided continuing inspiration for many succeeding generations. The specially commissioned essays in this volume offer a fresh, innovative panorama of the art, architecture, history, culture, and influence of Periklean Athens. Written by leading experts in the field, the articles cover a wide range of topics, including: An evaluation of Perikles' military leadership during the early stages of the Peloponnesian War. Iconographical and iconological studies of vase paintings, wall paintings, and sculpture. Explorations of the Parthenon and other monuments of the Athenian Akropolis. The legacy of Periklean Athens and its influence upon later art. Assessments of the modern reception of the Akropolis. As a whole, this collection of essays proves that even a well-explored field such as Periklean Athens can yield new treasures when mined by perceptive and seasoned investigators.
