Three years have passed since that magical year when the young Palo Alto friends found the tunnel under the Hacienda Palo Alto ruins and discovered the ancient Tarascan tomb in the cavern. (Narrated in the first five books of the Palo Alto adventure series. www.paloalto-bilingual-adventures.com.) With the money from the lost treasure and from the gold found at the Santa Fe, NM, ranch, the Hacienda has been rebuilt and the new world-class equestrian center is rapidly becoming known among equestrians throughout the world. The Palma family, ancestral owners of the Hacienda, proudly feel that they have restored the family’s importance to the level it had since the times of the earliest Colonial Spanish Viceroys in Mexico. The four friends have separated; Juanita Reyes and Leora Hunter have just finished their first year of High School; Juanita in Morelia, Michoacán and Leora in Virginia. Rafael Palma and Pedro Hernandez are graduating from different High Schools in Mexico City. The horses are thriving and El Dorado, Juanita’s favorite, has grown from the tiny foal she found into a magnificent Spanish stallion,

What ever happened to the legend of El Dorado, the tale of the mythical city of gold lost in the Amazon jungle? Charlotte Rogers argues that El Dorado has not been forgotten and still inspires the reckless pursuit of illusory wealth. The search for gold in South America during the colonial period inaugurated the "promise of El Dorado"—the belief that wealth and happiness can be found in the tropical forests of the Americas. That assumption has endured over the course of centuries, still evident in the various modes of natural resource extraction, such as oil drilling and mining, that characterize the region today. Mourning El Dorado looks at how fiction from the American tropics written since 1950 engages with the promise of El Dorado in the age of the Anthropocene. Just as the golden kingdom was never found, natural resource extraction has not produced wealth and happiness for the peoples of the tropics. While extractivism enriches a few outsiders, it results in environmental degradation and the subjugation, displacement, and forced assimilation of native peoples. This book considers how the fiction of five writers—Alejo Carpentier, Wilson Harris, Mario Vargas Llosa, Álvaro Mutis, and Milton Hatoum—criticizes extractive practices and mourns the lost illusion of the forest as a place of wealth and happiness.

Replague: The Neanderthals’ Revenge By: Dr. Robert E. Marx Replague: The Neanderthals’ Revenge depicts an ancient virus from prehistory that becomes unfrozen to haunt modern man and stress societal norms and medical acumen. It describes the chronologic story from the last ice age to the present and how the introduction of a new disease has devastated people and cultures in the past and even to us today, also medical intrigue and the ultimate enemy, Big Pharma, with their greed and arrogance. Dr. Robert E. Marx’s message is relevant due to the emergence of several recent epidemics and pandemics new to modern society, i.e., HIV, SARS, EBOLA, and of course COVID-19. His book also delves into the medicine, the characters, the insight into how the CDC really works, and the desire of one surgeon to expose a corrupt drug company and the clever way he accomplishes it. We need to study history so that we don’t repeat its mistakes. Many drug companies put profits ahead of patient safety and cover up side-effects. Future pandemics and plagues are on their way and pose a distinct threat to our way of life and global stability.

For more than a century, original music has been composed for the cinema. From the early days when live music accompanied silent films to the present in which a composer can draw upon a full orchestra or a lone synthesizer to embody a composition, music has been an integral element of most films. By the late 1930s, movie studios had established music departments, and some of the greatest names in film music emerged during Hollywood’s Golden Age, including Alfred Newman, Max Steiner, Dimitri Tiomkin, and Bernard Herrmann. Over the decades, other creators of screen music offered additional memorable scores, and some composers—such as Henry Mancini, Randy Newman, and John Williams—have become household names. The Encyclopedia of Film Composers features entries on more than 250 movie composers from around the world. It not only provides facts about these artists but also explains what makes each composer notable and discusses his or her music in detail. Each entry includes Biographical material Important dates Career highlights Analysis of the composer’s musical style Complete list of movie credits This book brings recognition to the many men and women who have written music for movies over the past one hundred years. In addition to composers from the United States and Great Britain, artists from dozens of other countries are also represented. A rich resource of movie music history, The Encyclopedia of Film Composers will be of interest to fans of cinema in general as well as those who want to learn more about the many talented individuals who have created memorable scores.

From the cult of Saint Anne to the devotees of the Virgin of Guadalupe, from Saint Anthony who competed with Christ for popularity in Brazil, to Jesuits who mixed freely with shamans that talked with the gods, this exciting new anthology examines the conversion of the colonized. The essays examine how New World spirits transformed into Old World saints - for example, the spirit of love transfigured into the Virgin Mary - as well as the implications of the canonization of the first American saint. Colonial Saints illustrates the complex and intimate connections among confessional life writing, canonization, and the practices of the Inquisition. There was a dynamic exchange involving local agendas, the courts in Spain and France, and, of course, Rome. This bold collection clearly shows the interplay between slavery and spirituality, conversion and control, and the links between the sacred and the political.
