3815 Stevens, Brooke The Circus of the Earth and the Air
New York Harcourt 1994 0151179875 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Book looks new. Dust in Mylar. A woman steps into a circus magician's box, and the box is set on fire. When the woman fails to reappear and the circus itself vanishes overnight, Alex Barton sets out to find his missing wife. Bizarre clues lead him to a mysterious island, where he encounters a faceless private army, a theater where performance and the stage have become objects of veneration, and a Fellini-esque circus concealed within a hollowed-out mountain. Tortured, tempted, analyzed, Alex sheds his identity and assumes a new one, as a tightrope walker whose strength is his vulnerability. As the line between the real and the surreal blur, Alex must discover what may--or may not--be the truth about his wife and himself. " circus vanishing act that abruptly terminates a marriage sets the stage for this tale of a lover's quest: a brooding, violent first novel from ex-tiger groom Stevens." (Krikus Review); 9.50 X 6.50 X 1.40 inches; 410 pages

3833 Stojanowski, Christopher Biocultural Histories in La Florida A Bioarchaeological Perspective
University Alabama Press 2005 0817352678 First Edition Paperback As New in As New dust jacket 
Looks never read!; 0.87 x 9.06 x 5.98 Inches; 256 pages;
Indigenous populations respond to colonial expansion.
 
This book examines the effects of the Spanish mission system on population structure and genetic variability in indigenous communities living in northern Florida and southern Georgia during the 16th and 17th centuries. Data on tooth size were collected from 26 archaeological samples representing three time periods:  Late Precontact (~1200-1500), Early Mission (~1600-1650), and Late Mission (~1650-1700) and were subjected to a series of statistical tests evaluating genetic variability. Predicted changes in phenotypic population variability are related to models of group interaction, population demo-graphy, and genetic admixture as suggested by ethnohistoric and archaeological data.

Results suggest considerable differences in diachronic responses to the mission environment for each cultural province. The Apalachee demonstrate a marked increase in variability while the Guale demonstrate a decline in variability. Demographic models of population collapse are therefore inconsistent with predicted changes based on population geneticsl, and the determinants of population structure seem largely local in nature. This book highlights the specificity with which indigenous communities responded to European contact and the resulting transformations in their social worlds.

"Stojanowski's work is like man's DNA, the structure of a lifeform, but here it is the structure or glue that holds together the historic puzzle with its Apalachee, Timucua, Guale, and Spanish pieces that other scholars have been trying to put together."--Keith P. Jacobi, author of Last Rites for the Tipu Maya

Christopher Stojanowski is Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, and a specialist in bioarchaeology.

3844 Strickland, Denzil Swimmers in the Sea (Author Signed)

Inscribed and signed by author on title page. Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover. Beautiful scarce collectors grade copy of this book. Swimmers in the Sea is a fiercely imagined novel by a newcomer to be watched. Author Denzil Strickland takes calamity and unflinchingly peels back its layers in this thrilling literary debut about a man who travels to pre-Katrina New Orleans to receive an unlikely inheritance from his estranged and dying father, a one-armed portrait artist convicted of manslaughter for the accident that killed his own two children and a newlywed couple leaving their wedding. At the age of thirty, Cliff Ebbets is broke and living in North Carolina, his marriage failing, when he receives a call from a man named Don Willis, his father's live-in companion. Don beckons Cliff to New Orleans for an inheritance he won't specify. Desperate but circumspect about anything to do with his father, Cliff concedes and travels back to the home of his earliest memory. There, he meets his father's friends, men from the underbelly of New Orleans' Ninth Ward, who paint a picture of Cecil Ebbets that Cliff doesn't recognize. It's the same picture he's being shown by the ghost of his dead sister Rachel. The twist in this tale of love and betrayal comes at the outset and wrings back and forth on itself throughout its telling. Swimmers in the Sea is a story about the other family and the son who inherits the sins of his father. It's the story of how the story of your life can change. Just like that. ; 1.2 x 8.6 x 6.2 Inches; 316 pages; Signed by Author

Dust is now in Brodart cover. This is a wartime (WWII) production book with normal Wartime stamp on copyright page. Stated First edition. "Kate was an incurable manager, from childhood, when she took her charming but drunken father firmly in hand, to her final capitulation, after years of matrimony, to the second chance with the husband she had worshipped -- and loved -- and married -- and bossed for years. The situations Kate found at hand demanded a guiding spirit -- so we share her urge to direct events; and Kate does it well enough, except when her own interests are involved. And then her poisonous -- and too, too obvious (one would think) neighbor -- steals the candy right from under her nose. This is the story of a life-long duel between Kate and bad Lalia; the setting is just the sort of Mid-West town that Tarkington knows best." (Kirkus Review) Newton Booth Tarkington (July 29, 1869 - May 19, 1946) was an American novelist and dramatist best known for his novels The Magnificent Ambersons and Alice Adams. He is one of only three novelists to win the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction more than once, along with William Faulkner and John Updike. Booth Tarkington was born in Indianapolis, Indiana, the son of John S. Tarkington and Elizabeth Booth Tarkington. He was named after his maternal uncle Newton Booth, then the governor of California. Tarkington was an unabashed Midwestern regionalist and set much of his fiction in his native Indiana. In 1902, he served one term in the Indiana House of Representatives as a Republican. ; 7.90 X 5.60 X 1 inches; 359 pages
