📒Louisiana S Way Home ✍ Kate DiCamillo
✏Louisiana s Way Home Book Summary : From two-time Newbery Medalist Kate DiCamillo comes a story of discovering who you are — and deciding who you want to be. When Louisiana Elefante’s granny wakes her up in the middle of the night to tell her that the day of reckoning has arrived and they have to leave home immediately, Louisiana isn’t overly worried. After all, Granny has many middle-of-the-night ideas. But this time, things are different. This time, Granny intends for them never to return. Separated from her best friends, Raymie and Beverly, Louisiana struggles to oppose the winds of fate (and Granny) and find a way home. But as Louisiana’s life becomes entwined with the lives of the people of a small Georgia town — including a surly motel owner, a walrus-like minister, and a mysterious boy with a crow on his shoulder — she starts to worry that she is destined only for good-byes. (Which could be due to the curse on Louisiana's and Granny’s heads. But that is a story for another time.) Called “one of DiCamillo’s most singular and arresting creations” by The New York Times Book Review, the heartbreakingly irresistible Louisiana Elefante was introduced to readers in Raymie Nightingale — and now, with humor and tenderness, Kate DiCamillo returns to tell her story.

📒New Orleans Suite ✍ Lewis Watts
✏New Orleans Suite Book Summary : With New Orleans Suite, Eric Porter and Lewis Watts join the post-Katrina conversation about New Orleans and its changing cultural scene. Using both visual evidence and the written word, Watts and Porter pay homage to the city, its region, and its residents, by mapping recent and often contradictory social and cultural transformations, and seeking to counter inadequate and often pejorative accounts of the people and place that give New Orleans its soul. Focusing for the most part on the city’s African American community, New Orleans Suite is a story about people: how bad things have happened to them in the long and short run, how they have persevered by drawing upon and transforming their cultural practices, and what they can teach us about citizenship, politics, and society.
✏Warfare Welfare Book Summary : This edited volume reveals how a permanent war economy has made the United States unable to spread democracy abroad and has worsened domestic problems. The editors draw from classical readings in political theory, from primary documents (including key court decisions), and from social science research to analyze such issues as the effect of militarization and combativeness on the everyday lives of Americans. The editors also address the dire connection among banking losses, the housing recession, the welfare/national security state, and the challenge of rebuilding AmericaÆs infrastructure.

📒Half Way Home From Kinderlou ✍ James Edward Alexander
✏Half Way Home From Kinderlou Book Summary : Through a collection of short stories, a grandfather describes his happy childhood in the small town of Valdosta, Georgia. It was a simple time when children played simple games with simple toys. Those were the days when failure of a child to say "yes ma'am" and "yes sir" to grown folks was considered an act of disrespect which brought swift rebuke and punishment from the disrespected adult and the child’s parents. Most homeowners in his neighborhood only dreamed of indoor plumbing, electric lights and home telephone service. Despite the prevailing social order, dictated by racial segregation which choked the advancement of some of his neighbors, little James Edward was often permitted broader liberties to expand his borders simply because all of the adults encouraged his growth. His timing was right. Colored adults nourished his self confidence as though vicariously rekindling their own aspirations. White adults saw a fast moving innocent youngster with a cautions and keen intellect, so letting him roam was a gift to a child which did not threaten their prerogatives. So adults of both races sought ways to assuage the harshness of segregation for little James Edward by smothering him with affection and special attention. The effects of this esteem is reflected in his pleasant memories of the post depression years and other events of that time.

📒Louisiana Man ✍ Lloyd Antypowich
✏Louisiana Man Book Summary : There was never a stronger desire that flows through the veins of a Louisiana man to be a cowboy than in Tom Menzer. At nineteen, he had made a good start to do that, but Pontchartrain, Louisiana, did not seem to be the right place, so he turned his horse west and headed for Texas where the real cowboys came from. The life he lived is nothing more than a harrowing experience. If he made friends with the native Indians, then the white man would hate him, would call him a squaw man, and would tell him that his life was worth nothing more than the average Indian. If he took the side of the white man, then the Indians would look to lift his scalp. Tom was not a killer, and he hated killing. But he found himself wearing a necktie that was just seconds away from taking his life by some soldiers that were paid by a very rich rancher to dispose of him. It was after that he vowed never to be caught by the law. He traveled north to Oklahoma where he made friends with a village of natives. There he hunted and contributed his share of food for the village. The chief rewarded him with his daughter. When she was a little baby still on her mothers breast, her family was massacred by the natives. She was found crying under some small bushes, and a warrior took her and gave her to the chief whose wife was nursing a young son and nursed her to become a very lovely maiden. The chief later told Tom that his wife was not native, and he had waited a long time to find the right man for his daughter. When the horse thieves tried to kill him and harm his wife and family, it was only then that he used his gun to kill the thieves. Suffering from the buckshot in his back, he had a man at a fort near Calgary dig the pellets out with his hunting knife. You can read on and find out how Tom and Raven Feather learned to love each other in a deep and enduring way.
📒Journey Home ✍ Paul Burke
✏Journey Home Book Summary : Click here to go to the author's website. Reader´s Comments Journey Home is the story of Danny and his friends giving it one more try as they venture through Florida and Louisiana looking for a steady gig and something to eat. Journey Home is the exploration of life and its realities, its beauty and its tragedy. Deep and well written it is provocative, and inspiring as the characters lives are laid bare for all the world to see. Profound and twisting their lives take them from an old brothel in Florida straight into the heart of New Orleans a city fraught with crime, indifference and ancient evils. Along the way they meet a vast array of characters including an aspiring actress, an underworld figure, drug dealing teenagers, an old hippie, and a homeless woman. Filled with unlikely heroes and surrounded by mayhem there are serious issues and situations that confront each one of them. Their wild and chaotic ride forces them to run and hide from a crazy world only to come to terms with themselves and it all. Burke takes us to a town that is a microcosm of the modern society we have created. The characters are in their individual ways disillusioned and broken souls. But even so, they have their dreams and their music. Whether they will eventually fulfill their dreams or not is only one of the interesting points of the book. More than a fictional chronicle of a group on the road, Journey Home is a philosophical exploration of life and its realities. With protagonists that live and breathe music, this book no doubt will please music lovers. Subtle musical references are made throughout the book. But this work is not merely about music. Paul Burke makes an ultimate statement about life and living, one that will inspire and challenge every human being about the world we have built for ourselves. Paul Burke has a long and rich background in the visual arts, broadcasting, music and theater. He has been creating in one medium or another for over thirty years. He spent ten of those years as a leading contributor to WLFR, a public radio station he helped to start, guide and define. He championed and interviewed individual artists such as Doc Watson, Tom Rush, Rory Block, and Arlo Guthrie. His show was dedicated to non-commercial artists and environmental causes. Through WLFR, grass roots organizations were able to express their civic concerns stopping a trash incinerator in an ecologically sensitive waterway in one instance, and moving a manufacturer to recycle in another. Journey Home is the result of the thirty plus years spent in the world of audio and visual arts, performing at small venues, touring with a national theater group, and championing environmental activism.
