The secret story of polygamy by Kathleen Tracy( Book )

Despite the fact that polygamy was declared illegal in 1890, there are an estimated 60,000 practicing polygamists in the United States, most of them living in the western states. In The Secret Story of Polygamy, author Kathy Tracy examines the current state of polygamy, revealing the shocking abuse of women that often comprises life in a polygamist family. Her investigation exposes a world where women are treated as breeders of children, and daughters are taught to become faithful servants to the man they marry, often at the age of 14 or 15. Some of the men have as many as 14 to 16 wives; and even when the family has wealth, the women frequently live impoverished lives in run-down homes or dwellings and are forced to claim independent status in order to collect welfare and food stamps. The revelations of The Secret Story of Polygamy are centered around a dramatic narrative of the story of the Kingston brothersa 1999 case in which a father in a polygamist clan pleaded no contest to beating his daughter until she was unconscious because she defied the mores of the clan; and in which the girls husband, her fathers brother, was convicted of incest. It is also the story of the young woman, Mary Ann Kingston, who had the courage at age 16 to come forward and expose her familys secret

Welcome to the Dixie Chicks photo biography by Kathleen Tracy( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These days when they talk about "grrrl power," they say it with a twang. The Dixie Chicks have almost single-handedly reinvented a classic country sound, and so gone where no widely popular girl group has ever gone before. Not only do country purists applaud their traditional roots, but their modern take on the tunes is drawing in fans who once dismissed country as music for men and women with big hair and sequined outfits. Loaded with exclusive color photos and revealing biographical details, this first photo album of the Chicks tells their story with more that 50 gorgeous pics. The "Chicks'" founding members -- Emily Robinson and Martie Seidel -- had been playing bluegrass and Western swing on Dallas street corners since the 1980s. The addition of lead singer Natalie Maines in 1995 spurred them to create a new sound and image for themselves. Kathleen Tracy writes about the musical and stylistic transformation of the group, looking at their early tumultuous years as well as their more recent climb to the top of the charts, with Fly -- their latest album. Like many of the songs chronicled in their albums, The Dixie Chicks is a story of willpower, sacrifice, and artistic vision. Finally, here's a book that will allow readers to get up close and personal with the women that Rolling Stone has called "the badass queenpins of country."
