213 Fountain, Anne. Jose Marti and U. S. Writers. Foreword by Roberto Fernandez Retamar.
Gainesville, FL: University Press of Florida, (2003). First Edition. 
Octavo, hardcover (tan cloth & coral boards), xiv + 153 pp. Fine. From Foreword: Jose Marti would never have agreed with the concept, now popular again, that civilizations are ever doomed to clash with each other. In 1894, using reasoning that harks back to the time of the Stoics if not before he claimed categorically that to speak of nationhood is to speak of humanity. In the upheavals of his own life, he had come to understnad that civilizations can and should sustain each other. Thus he labled the part of our planet, where he happened to have been born, and to which he dedicated his life, Our Mestizo America. Bearing this in mind, it is reasonable to assume that he would have enthusiastically welcomed the multiculturalism currently in vogue in the United Staets. Marti's relationship with the United Staets, where he lived in exile for some fifteen years, is enduring proof of this. However, Marti's intimate and complex relationship with the United States has not yet been adequately studied. At the beginning of this book, Anne Fountain characterizes that relationship succinctly when she says that Marti's whole interpretation of the United States was a largely negative view of politics and policians tempered by an enthusiastic embrace of poets and poetry. The great poet Juan Ramon Jimenez, an authoritative spokesman for his era, wrote that Spain and Spanish Americans were deeply indebted to [Marti] for opening up their access to U. S. poetry. Hence the importance of this study...

214 Frank, Andrew K. Creeks and Southerners: Biculturalism on the Early American Frontier.
Lincoln: University of Nebraska Press, (2005). First Edition. 
Signed by the Author. Octavo, black cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, xi + 192 pp. Fine, in a Fine dust jacket. From dust jacket: Creeks and Southerners examines the families created by the hundreds of intermarriages between Creek Indian women and European American men in the southeastern United States during the eighteenth and early nineteenth century. Called “Indian countrymen” at the time, these intermarried white men moved into their wives' villages in what is now Florida, Georgia, and Alabama. By doing so, they obtained new homes, familial obligations, occupations, and identities. At the same time, however, they maintained many of their ties to white American society and as a result entered the historical record in large numbers. Creeks and Southerners studies the ways in which many children of these relationships lived both as Creek Indians and white Southerners. By carefully altering their physical appearances, choosing appropriate clothing, learning multiple languages, embracing maternal and paternal kinsmen and kinswomen, and balancing their loyalties, the children of intermarriages found ways to bridge what seemed to be an unbridgeable divide. Many became prominent Creek political leaders and warriors, played central roles in the lucrative deerskin trade, built inns and taverns to cater to the needs of European American travelers, frequently moved between colonial American and Native communities, and served both European American and Creek officials as interpreters, assistants, and travel escorts. The fortunes of these bicultural children reflect the changing nature of Creek-white relations, which became less flexible and increasing contentious throughout the nineteenth century as both Creeks and Americans accepted a more rigid biological concept of race, forcing their bicultural children to choose between identities.

Author spent a year inside the walls of Largo High School in western Florida. “In an attempt to discover firsthand what's really going on today in teenage America, French attended classes and faculty meetings. While hanging out in the cafeteria and going to football games and dances, he gained the trust of the students and obtained almost unlimited access into a world few adults can imagine. As he discovered, high school in the 1990s...is also a place where the pressure to succeed can drive students to commit suicide, where others hide guns inside their lockers, and where the usual tortures of adolescence are compounded by drugs, divorce, AIDS< and a widespread emptiness felt by so many teenagers...An affecting and alarming read for both parents and teenagers...”
