"Set on the island of Okinawa today and during World War II, this deeply moving and evocative novel tells the entwined stories of two teenage girls-an American and an Okinawan-whose lives are connected across 70 years by the shared experience of both profound loss and renewal. Luz, a contemporary U.S. Air Force brat, lives with her no-nonsense sergeant mother at Kadena Air Base. Luz's older sister, her best friend and emotional center, has died in the Afghan war. Unmoored by her death, unable to lean on her mother, Luz contemplates taking her own life. In 1945, Tamiko has lost everyone-the older sister she idolized and her entire family-and finds herself trapped between the occupying Japanese and the invading Americans whom she has been taught are demons that live to rape. On an island where the spirits of the dead are part of life and the afterworld reunites you with your family, suicide offers Tamiko the promise of peace. As Luz tracks down the story of her own Okinawan grandmother, she discovers that the ancestral spirits work as readily to save her as they do to help Tamiko find a resting place. And as these two stories unfold and intertwine, we see how war and American occupation have shaped and reshaped the lives of Okinawans"--

Son hitches a ride with the Ronpope-slurping, Percodan-gobbling Prairie James - the, by God, best damned trick roper north of the Rio Grande - and his all-white wonder horse, Domino, for a tour of the offbeat rodeo circuit. Along the way they meet Prairie's old sweetheart, the female bullriding champ of the world, and her five children; an eight-fingered black roper who had to win his buckle after all the white boys had quit; an alligator-wrestling suitor for Son; a peyote-pushing sham shaman; and the wildly racist, intractably chauvinistic producer who rules his fiefdom of alternative rodeo with an electric cattle prod. Besides discovering that both cowboys and love can come in a variety of shapes, colors, and genders, Son also learns that the man who starts your life - your real life, the one you were meant to lead - just ought to be your father

A love letter to Texas women by Sarah Bird( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is it that distinguishes Texas women—the famous Yellow Rose and her descendants? Is it that combination of graciousness and grit that we revere in First Ladies Laura Bush and Lady Bird Johnson? The rapier-sharp wit that Ann Richards and Molly Ivins used to skewer the good ole boy establishment? The moral righteousness with which Barbara Jordan defended the US constitution? An unnatural fondness for Dr Pepper and queso? n her inimitable style, Sarah Bird pays tribute to the Texas Woman in all her glory and all her contradictions. She humorously recalls her own early bewildered attempts to understand Lone Star gals, from the big-haired, perfectly made-up ladies at the Hyde Park Beauty Salon to her intellectual, quinoa-eating roommates at Seneca House Co-op for Graduate Women. After decades of observing Texas women, Bird knows the species as few others do. A Love Letter to Texas Women is a must-have guide for newcomers to the state and the ideal gift to tell any Yellow Rose how special she is"--Amazon.com
