Julie Brooks Barbour is a poet exposed, calling on the essentials: apples, air, earth, a tiny tugging mouth. She makes a home in the opposite ends of a blooming life and writes forward. Hers is the voice of the new mother calling herself back to swollen breasts and healed stitches.
Hers—the levitating voice of the quintessential poet capturing life moments that have been "left to themselves." Julie Brooks Barbour has left us humans, in need of her noticing, the greatest of portraits: the human soul seduced by what is puzzling, fleeting, always true.
Dalton McNamara is returning to the country where he was held in brutal captivity, to the place where his leg was crudely amputated, to the land where his friends died. Dalton is on his way to Vietnam. But this time it will be different. This time his new wife Paige and his daughter Skyler are with him. Together, they are on a mission of healing and hope—a trip that will quickly become the adventure of a lifetime.
The McNamaras are in search of Skyler’s Vietnamese mother’s family, a journey that will wind them through a remote countryside where people still struggle to survive—even if it means working outside the law. Soon the Daltons discover that becoming too friendly with some people can be dangerous, even Lethal, especially if you are American.
More than 130 full-color photographs adorn this handsome re-creation of daily life in a Plains Indian village in 1868.

The clothes the family wears, from elaborate ceremonial headdresses to colorful beaded moccasins; the foods they eat; the games they play; the crafts and jewelry they make; and the spiritual rituals they perform are among the many topics included. This large-format book, with clear text and informative sidebars, provides a detailed pictorial account of the Plains Indian life more than a century ago.
