  • The 1870 Ghost Danceby Cora Du Bois

    University of Nebraska Press 2007; US$ 19.95

    The 1870 Ghost Dance was a significant but too often disregarded transformative historical movement with particular impact on the Native peoples of northern California.

  • Because a Fire Was in My Headby Lynn Stegner

    University of Nebraska Press 2007; US$ 24.95

    Kate Riley is not the sort of heroine we meet in most American novels. Self-centered, shape-shifting, driven from one man to another and one city to the next, she is all too real?but not at all the loyal and steady homebody of idealized womanhood. When we first encounter her, Kate (or Katherine, or Kate of the Prairie, or Katrina) is about to undergo... more...

  • Buffalo Nationby Ken Zontek

    University of Nebraska Press 2007; US$ 19.95

  • Madah-Sartreby Alek Baylee Toumi

    University of Nebraska Press 2007; US$ 13.95

    ?Hell is other people,? Jean-Paul Sartre famously wrote in No Exit . The fantastic tragicomedy Madah-Sartre brings him back from the dead to confront the strange and awful truth of that statement. As the story begins, Sartre and his consort in intellect and love, Simone de Beauvoir, are on their way to the funeral of Tahar Djaout, an Algerian poet... more...

  • Shenandoah Summerby Scott C. Patchan

    University of Nebraska Press 2007; US$ 34.95

    Jubal A. Early?s disastrous battles in the Shenandoah Valley ultimately resulted in his ignominious dismissal.
