It's 1864 in downtrodden Lowell, Massachusetts. The Civil War has taken its toll on the town--leaving the economy in ruin and its women in dire straits. That is, until Asa Mercer arrives on a peculiar, but providential, errand: he seeks high-minded women who can exert an elevating influence in Seattle, where there are ten men for every woman. Mail-order brides, yes, but of a certain caliber. Schoolmarmish Josephine, tough-as-nails Dovey, and pious perfectionist Sophronia see their chance to exchange their bleak prospects for new lives. But the very troubles that sent them running from Lowell follow them to the muddy streets of Seattle, and the friendships forged on the cross-country trek are tested at every turn. Just when the journey seems to lead only to ruin, an encounter with a famous suffragist could be their salvation. But to survive both an untamed new landscape and their pasts, they'll need all their strength--and one another.

Originally published in 1960 and long out of print, Mercer's Belles is a classic of Northwest history and even inspired a television series, "Here Come the Brides". Roger Conant's 1866 report of his shipboard travels with the "Mercer Girls" on their three-month voyage from New York to San Francisco and Seattle is here republished in its entirety, including Lenna Deutsch's invaluable reference material and the original photographs. A new foreword by Northwest historian Susan Armitage places the journal in historical perspective. Civil War losses had created a surplus of unattached women on the eastern seaboard. In the new western territories, women were sought as wives and teachers. Asa Mercer, president of the territorial university in Seattle, organized a project for female emigration. To a group of men in the West he promised, for a fee, to bring a suitable wife of good moral character and reputation. To the women of the East he offered free passage to Washington Territory. People greeted Mercer's plans with mixed feelings, and he never recruited the number of women he originally anticipated would make the long journey west. The story of "Mercer's Belles" came to occupy an important and interesting niche in regional history. Never has the story been told as thoroughly, as entertainingly, or as well as in Roger Conant's journal, accompanied by Lenna Deutsch's insightful reference material. It is fitting that Mercer's Belles now be made available for a new generation of readers.

This book is a tale about a girl who was born into an unexpected reality. We laugh at the unexplained and tend to mock what we don't understand. This girl was born into a world that didn't want her.. She found love with her Grandmother in the northeastern farms of Thailand. At the age of six she encountered a near death experience that forever changed her life. During the course of her first seventeen years she experienced coming back from the other side: She witnessed a public suicide, and an old man being publically beaten to drive out a spirit that people believed made him ill: She was visited by spirits that would give even the strongest person nightmares. The book is very entertaining when you see how this child copes with everyday life experiences as well as the supernatural experiences. At the age of thirteen she was able to catch a thief. At an older age she was able to deal with spirits that wanted nothing more than to do harm, I mean physical harm. This book is about a little girl with more inner strength than most of us can possibly comprehend. She tapped into her inner self and found the courage to accept and to rationalize their very existence. This book is about a little girl named by a nurse because no one was around to give her a name. Her name is Nongnooch Mercer.

This book investigates what women enjoy about consuming, and in some cases producing, gay male erotic media–from slashfic, to pornographic texts, to visual pornography–and how this sits within their consumption of erotica and pornography more generally. In addition, it will examine how women’s use of gay male erotic media fits in with their perceptions of gender and sexuality. By drawing on a piece of wide-scale mixed methods research that examines these motivations, an original and important volume is presented that serves to explore and contribute to this under-researched area.
