“The Texas Folklore Society has been alive and kicking for over one hundred years now, and I don't really think there's any mystery as to what keeps the organization going strong. The secret to our longevity is simply the constant replenishment of our body of contributors. We are especially fortunate in recent years to have had papers given at our annual meetings by new members—young members, many of whom are college or even high school students. “These presentations are oftentimes given during sessions right alongside some of our oldest members. We've also had long-time members who've been around for years but had never yet given papers; thankfully, they finally took the opportunity to present their research, fulfilling the mission of the TFS: to collect, preserve, and present the lore of Texas and the Southwest. “You'll find in this book some of the best articles from those presentations. The first fruits of our youngest or newest members include Acayla Haile on the folklore of plants. Familiar and well-respected names like J. Rhett Rushing and Kenneth W. Davis discuss folklore about monsters and the classic 'widow's revenge' tale. These works—and the people who produced them—represent the secret behind the history of the Texas Folklore Society, as well as its future.”—Kenneth L. Untiedt

Donald Young's poems are tight and loose at the same time the reader can move within them and the reader will feel strongly the concern, the emotion, the flow that carries the words along. There is color, music and a wonderful reliance on imagery that makes the poems a joy to read and reread. But what gives the poems their energy and depth is the feeling of necessity that underlies each poem there is an idea or passion (or both) which strongly compels its utterance. The poems are journeys toward some discovery (as the very best poems always are), toward revelation or satori (sudden illumination). In many cases, the poems push us beyond what we could ever anticipate. Herein lies the pleasure. We leave Donald Young's poems enlightened, deepened and thankful for the keen eye and compassionate heart. Tom McKeown, author of The Luminous Revolver and Three Hundred Tigers

When a writer turns cartoonist, but can't turn loose of her typewriter, On Getting Old for the First Time is the result. At least it was for best-selling author Peg Bracken, whose new book is illustrated (or decorated, her preferred word) with pictures of Emily -- her wry but often-wistful heroine. Millions of women are familiar with Bracken's The I Hate to Cook Book. Now Bracken takes on the interesting matter of getting old for the first time -- a fascinating, universal project that all of us tackle, sooner or later.

They say that life is what you make it, and this saying is truly applicable to prison as well as life. Not to put anyone down, most of us go throughout our lives not caring about anything or anyone. The only thing that can awaken someone who has taken everything and everyone for granted is for that someone to lose what it was that someone had. Then, and only then, can that someone learn to appreciate the blessings they had been given. Thus, when first contemplating the drafting of this book, the question that arose in my mind was not, who would be my intended audience, but what is it that I could possibly give to the audience that this book is intended for? That question was quickly answered after reflecting on the past maybe ten years or beyond, as well as recently, through the media watching how many public figures and celebrities are coming to prison for the first time. It is a good read not just for young people but of all ages. Each person that reads this book will come away with a different outlook on life, values and what being free means.

Becoming a first-time manager is one of the most challenging experiences in a person’s career. It is both a time of great excitement as well as uncertainty and insecurity. The good news is that you have been promoted. The bad news is that you will probably be left to sink or swim. First-time managers who succeed are able to make profound adjustments and adapt themselves quickly. By developing new competencies, they start to become value creators to their teams and companies. But those who aren’t able to make the critical shifts will struggle. With Asia rising, more Asian managers are reaching the upper rungs of management. There are also more younger Western managers who will be working alongside them. These self-confident Asian managers and their curious and enlightened Western counterparts know that it’s no longer tenable to apply Western management practices without adaptation. These are three key benefits from this book: 1. Setting in place Five Foundation Stones that will ensure your success as a manager now and in the future. 2. Acquiring a Versatile Managerial Toolkit that blends the best from the East and West so that you can lead more effectively in the 21st century. 3. Enhancing your influence through the Power of Engagement.
