He was an orphan from the hills of Tennessee and he hadn’t eaten in three days. With the front of his stomach making friends with the back, he was in no position to let an opportunity slip by unnoticed. And when Chancy defended his new herd of cattle with a shotgun, he didn’t miss. The dead man left a pistol on the ground. Chancy needed a spare and, after stowing it in his bedroll, forgot about it. He had a cattle drive to finish and a profit to make. But the gun had a history. Another killing had taken place and Chancy would never know the truth until it was too late. Now, locked in a jail cell with an angry, drunken mob outside and time running out, he must somehow find a way to prove his innocence. From the Paperback edition.

"A riveting, insightful personal narrative, a confessional that is very thoroughly researched. It will open windows on the rich, complex culture of Haiti, both historical and contemporary." - Moira Ferguson, James E. Ryan Chair in English and Women's Literature, University of Nebraska "A very insightful and brilliantly executed reading of novels by Haitian women." - Selwyn Cudjoe, Marion Butler McLean Professor of the History of Ideas, Wellesley College "A major new work in Caribbean studies." - Gay Wilentz, East Carolina University Colonized and coerced, raped and silenced - this has been the position of Haitian women within their own society, as well as how they have been seen by foreign occupiers. Romanticized symbols of nationhood, they have served, however unwillingly, as a politicized site of contestation between opposing forces. In this first book-length study in English devoted exclusively to Haitian women's literature, Myriam Chancy finds that Haitian women have their own history, traditions, and stories to tell, tales that they are unwilling to suppress or subordinate to narratives of national autonomy. Issues of race, class, color, caste, nationality, and sexuality are all central to their fiction - as is an urgent sense of the historical place of women between the two U.S. occupations of the country. Their novels interrogate women's social and political stances in Haiti from an explicitly female point of view, forcefully responding to overt sexual and political violence within the nation's ambivalent political climate. Through daring and sensitive readings, simultaneously historical, fictional, and autobiographical, Chancy explores this literature, seeking to uncover answers to the current crisis facing these women today, both within their country and in exile. The writers surveyed include Anne-christine d'Adesky, Ghislaine Charlier, Marie Chauvet, Jan J. Dominique, Nadine Magloire, and Edwidge Danticat. Myriam J. A. Chancy is a Haitian scholar and writer born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, and raised in Canada. She is an assistant professor of English at Vanderbilt University.

We have visualized Jesus as CEO, as environmentalist, and even thought about what His politics might have been. But in reality, in history, regardless of religious beliefs, Jesus is the greatest mentor of all time. The handful of disciples He coached became totally committed to His mission, worked together as an effective team, and through their efforts, one-third of the world's population follows what Jesus taught. From eleven people to two billion people- now that's effective mentoring.
