The definitive account of the Ghost Dance religion, which led to the infamous massacre at Wounded Knee in 1890 Winner of the Bancroft Prize in American History In 1890, on Indian reservations across the West, followers of a new religion danced in circles until they collapsed into trances. In an attempt to suppress this new faith, the US Army killed over two hundred Lakota Sioux at Wounded Knee Creek. In God's Red Son, historian Louis Warren offers a startling new view of the religion known as the Ghost Dance, from its origins in the visions of a Northern Paiute named Wovoka to the tragedy in South Dakota. To this day, the Ghost Dance remains widely mischaracterized as a primitive and failed effort by Indian militants to resist American conquest and return to traditional ways. In fact, followers of the Ghost Dance sought to thrive in modern America by working for wages, farming the land, and educating their children, tenets that helped the religion endure for decades after Wounded Knee. God's Red Son powerfully reveals how Ghost Dance teachings helped Indians retain their identity and reshape the modern world.

A serial killer haunts a darkened land in a macabre contest of survival in book one of this horror fantasy trilogy. In 1999, the world is horribly altered by a mysterious, year-long phenomenon dubbed the Great Darkness. A serial killer known as the Family Man is drawn deep into this strange new landscape by the enigmatic Shepard of Wolves. As he receives clues to his fate through the powerful Red Dream, the Family Man goes searching for answers. A kill list contains the names of other monstrous killers, some even more infamous than the Family Man. They have been drawn into the Shepard's Game—the ultimate contest of death—and the prize is worth every drop of blood spilled in its name. But is this all a trap? Who is the Red Mother, and what does she want? Should the Family Man add the Shepard to his list? Striking the killers' names from his list one gruesome stroke at a time, the Family Man unravels the truth. But his own personal war against the waking world demands a heavy price—he must rouse the demons of his buried past.

During the nineteenth century, white Americans sought the cultural transformation and physical displacement of Native people. Though this process was certainly a clash of rival economic systems and racial ideologies, it was also a profound spiritual struggle. The fight over Indian Country sparked religious crises among both Natives and Americans. In The Gods of Indian Country, Jennifer Graber tells the story of the Kiowa Indians during Anglo-Americans' hundred-year effort to seize their homeland. Like Native people across the American West, Kiowas had known struggle and dislocation before. But the forces bearing down on them-soldiers, missionaries, and government officials-were unrelenting. With pressure mounting, Kiowas adapted their ritual practices in the hope that they could use sacred power to save their lands and community. Against the Kiowas stood Protestant and Catholic leaders, missionaries, and reformers who hoped to remake Indian Country. These activists saw themselves as the Indians' friends, teachers, and protectors. They also asserted the primacy of white Christian civilization and the need to transform the spiritual and material lives of Native people. When Kiowas and other Native people resisted their designs, these Christians supported policies that broke treaties and appropriated Indian lands. They argued that the gifts bestowed by Christianity and civilization outweighed the pains that accompanied the denial of freedoms, the destruction of communities, and the theft of resources. In order to secure Indian Country and control indigenous populations, Christian activists sanctified the economic and racial hierarchies of their day. The Gods of Indian Country tells a complex, fascinating-and ultimately heartbreaking-tale of the struggle for the American West.

Recorded in sacred Sanskrit texts, including the Rig Veda and the Mahabharata, Hindu Myths are thought to date back as far as the tenth century BCE. Here in these seventy-five seminal myths are the many incarnations of Vishnu, who saves mankind from destruction, and the mischievous child Krishna, alongside stories of the minor gods, demons, rivers and animals including boars, buffalo, serpents and monkeys. Immensely varied and bursting with colour and life, they demonstrate the Hindu belief in the limitless possibilities of the world - from the teeming miracles of creation to the origins of the incarnation of Death who eventually touches them all.

Sam Baron is about to get the shock of his life. First his substitute English teacher claims to have turned his old teacher into a lizard; then a strange dwarf named Rego arrives and claims Sam is from a magical realm called Orkney. When his friends are taken prisoner, it’s up to Sam to save them. Sam embarks on a journey to Orkney through a stonefire to find his friends—but when he arrives, he discovers that an ancient curse has turned the sun a poisonous red and threatens to destroy the land. With only a young witch girl to guide him, Sam must choose: save his friends, or stop the red sun from consuming the land? Drawing on Norse mythology, The Red Sun follows Sam’s journey to uncover the truth about his past—a journey during which he has to overcome the simmering anger inside of him, learn to channel his growing magical powers, and find a way to forgive the father who left him behind.

A flash flood in the Arizona desert brings Nastas, a lone Navajo brave, into the national spotlight. His heroic efforts to save a young girl trapped in the melee leave him wounded, and Spirits lead him to an oasis cultivated by Keane, a white-man-turned-shaman whose place in the Navajo tribe is becoming increasingly important. Meanwhile, Keane's brother, Archer, encounters a series of mysterious figures and events in Ireland, where he is spending a semester at Trinity College. Both brothers are unaware that they are inextricably linked as the reincarnated Little War Gods of Navajo legend, and that dark forces in a rogue Christian sect (led by the fundamentalist seductress, Sibella) and the Navajo Spirit world are determined to harness the Gods for their own ends. Each player is eventually led to Black Rock - the sacred point of contact between the old world and the new - where both sides are confronted with a third, terrifying force. In a step beyond the typical "good versus evil" construct, Little Red War Gods explores the more potent conflict between "good versus good"; when both sides of a holy war are fighting in the name of their own gods, who will resort to evil ends in order to champion what's "right"?

G.C. "Red" Jones's classic memoir of growing up in rural eastern Kentucky during the Depression is a story of courage, persistence, and eventual triumph. His priceless and detailed recollections of hardscrabble farming, of the impact of Prohibition on an individualistic people, of the community-destroying mine wars of "Bloody Harlan," and of the drastic dislocations brought by World War II are essential to understanding this seminal era in Appalachian history.
