"The book is successful at describing the world West lived in as well as the dangers she faced in Texas. Recommended."--Choice "Traces her entire life."--ProtoView For the first time, the true story of "The Yellow Rose of Texas" is told in full, revealing a host of new insights and perspectives on one of America's most popular stories. For generations, the Yellow Rose of Texas has been one of America's most popular western myths, growing larger over time and little resembling the truth of what happened on April 21, 1836, at the battle of San Jacinto, where a new Texas Republic won its independence. The woman who has been popularly connected to the story was an ordinary but also quite remarkable free black woman from the North, Emily D. West. This work reconstructs her experience, places it in full context and explores the evolution of a most fanciful myth.

Award-winning investigative journalist Denise McVea presents extensive evidence that shows how Texas historians, blinded by racial sensibilities, split one woman into two. Along the way, the author recalls the Texas Revolution from a new and refreshing perspective. Following the Zavalas through New Spain, the United States, Paris, Mexico, and finally, to Texas, McVea tells the story of one woman of color who intimately experienced some of Texas' most significant historical events.Emily's story, painstakingly recreated from thousands of historical documents and family records, reveals the need for more diverse interpretations of Texas' vast anecdotal past.

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

When Black Texas Women: 150 Years of Trial and Triumph was published in 1995, it was acclaimed as the first comprehensive history of black women's struggles and achievements. This companion volume contains the original source materials that Ruthe Winegarten uncovered during her extensive research. Like a time capsule of black women's history, A Sourcebook includes petitions from free women of color, lawsuits, slave testimonies, wills, plantation journals, club minutes, autobiographies, ads, congressional reports, contracts, prison records, college catalogues, newspaper clippings, protest letters, and much more. In addition to the documents, a biographical section highlights the lives of women from various walks of life. The book concludes with a timeline that begins in 1777 and reaches to 1992. This wealth of original material will be a treasure trove for scholars and general readers interested in the emerging field of black women's history.

In late 1833 Mexico began to have serious fears that its northeastern territory in Texas would be lost to North American colonists. To determine the actual state of affairs, Mexico sent Col. Juan N. Almonte to Texas on an inspection -- the last conducted by a high-ranking Mexican official before revolution separated Texas from Mexico. Upon his return to the Mexican capital in November 1834, Almonte wrote a secret report of the measures necessary to avoid the loss of Texas -- a report that has been unknown to scholars or the general public. Here it is presented in English for the first time, along with more than fifty letters that Almonte wrote during his inspection. This documentation offers crucial new insights on Texas affairs and will change the way historians regard Mexico's attitudes toward the foreign colonists and their revolution of 1835-1836. When Santa Anna marched an army north to crush the Texas rebellion, Almonte was by his side as a special adviser. He kept a journal, lost at the Battle of San Jacinto, which is presented here with full annotation. Almonte's role in the 1836 campaign is examined, as well as his subsequent activities that relate to Texas. Through Almonte's Texas we gain an overdue appreciation of this man who played a leading role in the history of Texas and Mexico. As James E. Crisp said in his review of this work: "This is a fascinating, revelatory, and highly satisfying book for anyone interested in the real meat of the story of the Texas Revolution -- in all its political, military and diplomatic dimensions. The editors have put Almonte in the center of this story of Texas in the 1830s and 40s, and that's exactly where he belongs. Bravo!"

Viele besuchen den berühmten Zauberer Leitmeritz in seinem hochgelegenen Schloss, denn mit seinem roten Zauberbuch kann er sehnlichste Wünsche erfüllen. Nur für seinen Diener Chancery, der sich schämt, weil er hässlich ist, weiß er keinen Rat. Chancery versucht sein Glück auf eigene Faust, doch als er zitternd das Zauberbuch aufschlägt, flattern die Buchstaben davon. Entsetzt sammelt er sie wieder auf, aber das Buch hat gelitten. An Frosch und Drache, die den Zauberer konsultieren, versagen überraschend Leitmeritz' Zauberkräfte. Sein Ruhm ist dahin. Erst als es Chancery gelingt, seine vermeintliche Hässlichkeit zu bejahen, sich an seinem Lachen zu freuen, gewinnt das Zauberbuch seine Zauberkraft wieder zurück. Schlüssig oder nicht begeisternd ist die fantasievolle, in Farben und Formen schwelgende Illustration der märchenhaftpoetischen, hintergründigen Geschichte. Überwältigend die Einfälle von P. Bernasconi und seine Gabe, in Collagentechnik allein durch ein nur angedeutetes Nachtfenster eine Atmosphäre des Unheimlichen, Zauberischen zu schaffen. Ein illustratives Meisterwerk, sehr zu empfehlen.. Der Zauberer Leitmeritz kann viele Wünsche erfüllen. Aber seinem Diener Chancery, der gern ein schöner Mann wäre, kann er nicht helfen. Chancery versucht auf eigene Faust sein Glück und Aufregendes geschieht ... Ab 5.
