Children of Alcatraz : growing up on the rock by Claire Rudolf Murphy( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 589 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alcatraz Island is one of the most infamous places in American history. The maximum-security prison on the "Rock," once home to criminals like Al Capone and Machine Gun Kelly, has long since captured our country's imagination. But what few people realize is that Alcatraz was not only home to criminals--it was home to many children, too! Over the years, the island has been home to the children of Native Americans, lighthouse keepers, military soldiers, and prison guards. Imagine playing hide-and-seek in the prison morgue, having a convict as your babysitter, or having Al Capone as your neighbor. This photo-essay profiles generations of children who had the unique opportunity of growing up on this isolated island in San Francisco's shadow. With personal anecdotes, interviews with surviving Alcatraz Kids, historical documents, and archival and family photographs, this book reveals a one-of-a-kind childhood.--From publisher description

Daughters of the desert : stories of remarkable women from Christian, Jewish, and Muslim traditions by Claire Rudolf Murphy( Book )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Women -- though seldom educated -- played key roles in the development of these three great faiths, but their lives and contributions are rarely honored. The men who recorded and copied the sacred Scriptures and other important texts included very little about how women passed on their experiences of God through storytelling, song, and ritual. With the help of imagination and careful research, Daughters of the Desert introduces us to the lives and loves, personalities and dreams of women who are only hinted at in the Scriptures, but whose faith and strength were vital to the growth of their beliefs. Taking as starting points passages from the Hebrew and Christian Bibles and the Qur'an, this diverse collection of short stories allows us to hear the voices of our common female ancestors loud and clear. Ideal for anyone who has ever wondered what life was like for our spiritual foremothers, these stories bring life and breath to the past. What the Scriptures have often only outlined in passing is here fully imagined -- from thrilling events that decided the fate of thousands to everyday moments of friendship and love
