What does it mean to be “free?” Are you free if your life is directed with micromanagement from a far-off capitol?
Modern Americans are simply not as free as our forefathers were. In spite of the separation of powers established by the Constitution, many of our current laws are written by bureaucrats, administered by them, and finally judged by them—yet these laws are in opposition to those freedoms set forth by the founders of the United States!
A long time ago, when Crab and Crawfish were still best friends, Crawfish was feeling particularly lazy—and particularly hungry—as he loafed around the muggy bayou. When Crab arrived with a fish, Crawfish took one listen to his empty belly and decided to trick his good-natured friend.
“Take what you need and leave the rest,” is the refrain of this original trickster tale. In the old days, all of the world’s wealth was kept by the Oyster. Anyone who requested jewels that he guarded was met with the same generous refrain, and they took only what they needed. But what happens when Snake takes more than needed and that balance is threatened? Will the Oyster shed his gentle nature or will the treacherous Snake choke on his own greed?

The honeysuckle has been called “the wild wanderer of the South.” With its roots firmly in the ground, the honeysuckle’s vines travel with fragile blooms and sweet liquid. In much the same way, the verses in this collection of poetry offer a taste of Alabama. The beauty and meaning expressed in “Beachcombing,” “Spring Burning,” and “First Flowers” translates easily to those outside the state.

What do Bat Masterson, Bill Cody, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, David Crockett, William Tecumseh Sherman, Mark Twain, Elizabeth Custer, and the Statue of Liberty all have in common? They all spent time in New York City! Each chapter in this fascinating book provides a short biography of a Western hero or celebrity and tells how they made their mark on the city that many considered the media and cultural capital of the time. By tracing their path across the city—from casual visits, media campaigns, and political tours to family ties, shopping sprees, and steady employment—author Michael P. O’Connor aptly demonstrates how New York City influenced the lives and livelihood of many familiar names in the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century.
