""When new schoolmistress Chastity James arrives in 1878 Dodge City, Kansas, the "queen of the cow towns," she finds a raucous, turbulent town full of cowboys and saloons. No prim spinster, Chastity's got new ideas. Some find her engaging, like Marshall Charlie Bassett, while others, like her straitlaced landlady, are dismayed. Undaunted, Chastity forges ahead until a violent confrontation with an unwanted suitor leaves her an accused criminal. Chastity flees with little more than a stolen horse and her wits. She rescues an injured outlaw, roguish Beauregard Durant, and they throw in together. They discover allies in Professor Julius DeMonte's Traveling Medicine Show but face implacable enemies like the Ridley gang on a perilous journey that will change their lives forever"--"--

Winner of the 2019 Western Fictioneers Peacemaker Award The Lily of the West, winner of the 2019 Western Fictioneers Peacemaker Award for Best First Western Novel is the story of Mary Katherine Haroney, known as the notorious "Big Nose Kate." In the American West of the 1800s, women had few choices, but Kate made her own way. A Hungarian immigrant, Kate forged her way across the American frontier, an orphaned stowaway on a Mississippi riverboat who became the belle of the Dodge City music halls, known for her outspoken manner and her alluring appearance. Classically educated, she spoke four languages, finding love and much in common with a charming but volatile dentist from Atlanta, Dr. John Henry (Doc) Holliday. She was a trusted friend of the Earps and Bat Masterson, an adventurous woman who witnessed the violent lawlessness that preceded the end of an era. I was moved to tears many times by the story of Kate's love for Doc Holliday and impressed by the vivid detail with which the author painted the story of star-crossed lovers. A new take on the O.K. Corral, from a woman's point of view. —Roundup Magazine, Western Writers of America Writing in first person, Morris gives the woman's struggle an immediacy and poignancy not usually found in a traditional western. A good companion for Mary Doria Russell's Doc (2011), this compelling debut will appeal to readers of any gender. —Booklist

Marriage, Performance, and Politics at the Jacobean Court constitutes the first full-length study of Jacobean nuptial performance, a hitherto unexplored branch of early modern theater consisting of masques and entertainments performed for high-profile weddings. Scripted by such writers as Ben Jonson, Thomas Campion, George Chapman, and Francis Beaumont, these entertainments were mounted for some of the most significant political events of James's English reign. Here Kevin Curran analyzes all six of the elite weddings celebrated at the Jacobean court, reading the masques and entertainments that headlined these events alongside contemporaneously produced panegyrics, festival books, sermons, parliamentary speeches, and other sources. The study shows how, collectively, wedding entertainments turned the idea of union into a politically versatile category of national representation and offered new ways of imagining a specifically Jacobean form of national identity by doing so.
