"Totally riveting!" Detra Fitch, Huntress Reviews ..".Even though she had already embraced the idea of no longer being viewed as a woman, it was a pretense she could still back away from. It wasn't too late, yet, to call off the entire affair and creep away as a grieving daughter, left to wait on her husband's safe return from a war that had already decimated her world. She could do that still... or she could step into a realm where danger was the only certainty." And, so begins the arduous journey of Hattie Grey becoming Confederate infantryman 'Henry' Grey in October, 1862. Following the destruction of her world, in the tiny hamlet of Appleton, Tennessee, Hattie is eager for vengeance against the Yankee marauders who murdered her family and dear friends. Weary of waiting on word from her husband, Jonas, presently serving in the Confederate cavalry, several months with no news have passed since their lips last touched. Rather than wait any longer for his return, Hattie daringly disguises herself as a man and enlists in the Army of Tennessee. Hoping to find what has become of her beloved, and attain meaningful revenge, what Hattie finds instead is another woman pretending to be a male soldier.... The pair's powerful alliance is fed by courage in facing long odds of survival. Living on the edge with nothing to lose, Hattie and Lucinda Templeton, who goes by 'Louis', are as fearsome as any of their male counterparts in the infantry. Meanwhile, Lieutenant Jonas Grey returns home to find a burned-out farm, along with a makeshift grave believed to be Hattie's. Grieving under the belief that the love of his life is gone forever, Jonas aligns himself with the famed mercurial and fearless general, Bedford Forrest. The general's Elite Company of roughshod riders and former slaves provides the only succor available for Jonas to ward off tormenting memories of his beloved wife and a blissful life together that is now gone forever. As the Southern Cause's demise becomes increasingly evident, husband and wife experience near misses at being reunited along the Army of Tennessee's Hell-bent course towards eventual destruction.... Can Fate's fickle hand finally reunite Hattie and Jonas before the burdens of the war and their shared longing for each other become permanently extinguished? Or, instead, will the continued loss of those held dear during the long and bitter conflict between the North and South prove to be too much to overcome? These questions and more await answers in They Fought Like Men....

Popular images of women during the American Civil War include self-sacrificing nurses, romantic spies, and brave ladies maintaining hearth and home in the absence of their men. However, as DeAnne Blanton and Lauren M. Cook show in their remarkable new study, that conventional picture does not tell the entire story. Hundreds of women assumed male aliases, disguised themselves in men’s uniforms, and charged into battle as Union and Confederate soldiers—facing down not only the guns of the adversary but also the gender prejudices of society. They Fought Like Demons is the first book to fully explore and explain these women, their experiences as combatants, and the controversial issues surrounding their military service. Relying on more than a decade of research in primary sources, Blanton and Cook document over 240 women in uniform and find that their reasons for fighting mirrored those of men—-patriotism, honor, heritage, and a desire for excitement. Some enlisted to remain with husbands or brothers, while others had dressed as men before the war. Some so enjoyed being freed from traditional women’s roles that they continued their masquerade well after 1865. The authors describe how Yankee and Rebel women soldiers eluded detection, some for many years, and even merited promotion. Their comrades often did not discover the deception until the “young boy” in their company was wounded, killed, or gave birth. In addition to examining the details of everyday military life and the harsh challenges of -warfare for these women—which included injury, capture, and imprisonment—Blanton and Cook discuss the female warrior as an icon in nineteenth-century popular culture and why twentieth-century historians and society ignored women soldiers’ contributions. Shattering the negative assumptions long held about Civil War distaff soldiers, this sophisticated and dynamic work sheds much-needed light on an unusual and overlooked facet of the Civil War experience.

I. The hero is born into an unhappy family; he has nightmares but loves the girl next door; a dog kills his pet duck; he is left alone on the big river, where a man had drowned; he frequents the upholstery repair shop of his grandpa Bill, the home of Bill and Gram, and the great house on the river; he falls into a trance in his father’s room beside the river; he learns to fish and to kill his catch; an evil aunt ruins his sister Tari’s playhouse; he loves little girls too much and too often; he has a vision while fishing for crawdads in the San Lorenzo River; he and his brother Seth learn of their father’s death, smothered in a pyramid of sand. II. Now ten years old, he takes up entomology; his disturbed mother’s pet pigeon is crushed in a door; he learns the truth about his philandering father; in high school he has a new friend in Frankie Lee; he murders prairie dogs with his father’s gun; he meets the mysterious Johnny Martin, a poet, in love with the hero; he faints in class while presenting the story of Leopold and Loeb. III. He wins a prize and meets Eisenhower; he works as forest firefighter and sees a man burn to death; Johnny Martin shows him around Berkeley. IV. At Berkeley he suffers from herpes simplex and meets strange characters; a Los Angelino seduces him; Frankie Lee joins him a sordid apartment; he falls in love and travels to Mexico, where he loses his way; he goes to Harvard but doesn’t like it and flees to Europe, hoping to marry the girl he loves, who is studying in Spain. V. When the girl rejects him, he takes a boat from Barcelona to Athens, where he lives near a whorehouse in Piraeus; he sells his blood to survive; he climbs Mount Olympus in a snow storm; he hitchhikes across Algeria just after the war of independence; he takes drugs in Tangiers. VI. Back in Berkeley, he finds Frankie Lee and visits old friends, including Johnny Martin; he has night visions; he meets Isis; he locates his brother, who has gone mad; he consorts with drug dealers and enjoys their products; the streets are alive with revolution; he insults his professors and he meets a woman who claims to be from another planet; he lives with hippies, some of them mad; he meets a strange man in a bourgeois house; he has a shattering vision in which he turns into light and briefly leaves the world. VII. With Isis he moves to the mountains in Arizona, where he raises a family; he corresponds with Frankie Lee, living in LA; he eats peyote and remembers the day his father died; he climbs in the wilderness and converses about his early youth; he travels in remote areas; with friends he climbs a volcano in the night and slipping on a glacier almost dies; he returns to his hometown to find his grandmother incapacitated, abused, and near death; his grandfather recalls his brother’s madness; he undergoes a minor operation, after which he suspects Isis of infidelity. IX. Ramses and Isis travel to Egypt, where they run up against Egyptian bureaucracy and attendant horrors; a Copt cheats them and takes their money; their hopes to see the mummies of the pharaohs come to naught. XI. Ramses learns of his brother-in-law’s suicide, shot through the heart; going to NYC to investigate, he learns that his sister Tari was with another man that night; living in Greece with his teenage son, Ramses visits Ithaca, where they search for the house of Odysseus; back in the states, Ramses learns of his brother’s whereabouts, missing for forty years; he visits him in a halfway house, a house of horror. XIII. Ramses feels intense pains in his abdomen and goes t

How can postcolonialism be applied to Canadian literature? In all that has been written about postcolonialism, surprisingly little has specifically addressed the position of Canada, Canadian literature, or Canadian culture. Postcolonialism is a theory that has gained credence throughout the world; it is be productive to ask if and how we, as Canadians, participate in postcolonial debates. It is also vital to examine the ways in which Canada and Canadian culture fit into global discussions as our culture reflects how we interact with our neighbours, allies, and adversaries. This collection wrestles with the problems of situating Canadian literature in the ongoing debates about culture, identity, and globalization, and of applying the slippery term of postcolonialism to Canadian literature. The topics range in focus from discussions of specific literary works to general theoretical contemplations. The twenty-three articles in this collection grapple with the recurrent issues of postcolonialism — including hybridity, collaboration, marginality, power, resistance, and historical revisionism — from the vantage point of those working within Canada as writers and critics. While some seek to confirm the legitimacy of including Canadian literature in the discussions of postcolonialism, others challenge this very notion.
