Sonora by , Summary

2018 NATIONAL BOOK FOUNDATION'S 5 UNDER 35 HONOREE A fevered, lyrical debut about two young women drawn into an ever-intensifying friendship set against the stark, haunted landscape of the Sonoran desert and the ecstatic frenzy of New York City. Ahlam, the daughter of a Palestinian refugee and his Israeli wife, grows up in the arid lands of desert suburbia outside of Phoenix. In a stark landscape where coyotes prowl and mysterious lights occasionally pass through the nighttime sky, Ahlam’s imagination reigns. She battles chronic fever dreams and isolation. When she meets her tempestuous counterpart Laura, the two fall into infatuated partnership, experimenting with drugs and sex and boys, and watching helplessly as a series of mysterious deaths claim high school classmates. The girls flee their pasts for New York City, but as their emotional bond heightens, the intensity of their lives becomes unbearable. In search of love, ecstasy, oblivion, and belonging, Ahlam and Laura’s drive to outrun the ghosts of home threatens to undo them altogether.

Sonora by Robert C. West Summary

A land where some streams ran with gold. A landscape nearly empty of inhabitants in the wake of Apache raids from the north. And a former desert transformed by irrigation into vast fields of wheat and cotton. This was and is the state of Sonora in northwest Mexico. In this cultural historical geography, Robert C. West explores the dual geographic "personality" of this part of Mexico's northern frontier. Utilizing the idea of "old" and "new" landscapes, he describes two Sonoras—to the east, a semiarid to subhumid mountainous region that reached its peak of development in the colonial era and still lives largely in its colonial past; and, to the west, a desert region that in the twentieth century has become a major agricultural producer and the modern center of economic and cultural activity. After a description of the physical and biotic aspects of Sonora, West describes the aboriginal farming cultures that inhabited eastern Sonora before the Spanish conquest. Following the conquest, he traces the spread of Jesuit missions and Spanish mining and ranching communities into this land where gold, silver, and copper ores were easily extracted by surface mining. He charts the decline of eastern Sonora with the coming of Apache and Seri raids during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. And he shows how western Sonora has become one of Mexico's most powerful political and economic entities in the twentieth century. For geographers, historians, anthropologists, and economists, as well as travelers to Sonora and its coastal resorts, this lively and interesting book will be important reading.

Sonora Spring Haiku by Judith Lauter Summary

Sonora Spring Haiku, by poet and neuroscientist Judith Lauter, provides a photographic and poetic account of three spring months in the lush Sonoran desert near Tucson AZ. In a radical departure from the natural settings of most ‘classical’ haiku – a world of misty wetness, cranes, pagodas and perhaps a solitary, aged man – these poems evoke a stony landscape of space, sun, and sharp edges. Such an extremely wide range of application for the form shows us that poetry is perhaps the most flexible of the literary arts, capable of engaging almost any experience or geography.

Ghost of Sonora by Morgan Hill Summary

In the veiled and shadowed history of the West there rides a mysterious horseman. His headless shoulders testify to his death at the hands of the law—in a state that forbade Mexicans like him to own property. A state that turned a deaf ear to the rape and murder of the horseman’s beautiful young wife. This is the Ghost of Sonora. Was he man or myth? Was Joaquin Murieta the Napoleon of Banditry, as the California Rangers have charged, or El Patrio, the great liberator of the Mexicans of California? Here is his story. You make the decision. Dead Man's Revenge The poor and oppressed of old California cheer Joaquin Murieta as El Patrio, the great liberator. The wealthy and powerful call him simply "the smiling bandit." Officials dispatch rangers to kill the popular outlaw and bring his head back to them as proof. But justice does not die so easily. Now out of the darkness there rides a mysterious horseman - a headless specter bent on taking his revenge.

Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum by Peggy Pickering Larson,William Ascarza Summary

Since 1952, Bill Carr and Arthur Pack, the founders of the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, have inspired visitors to live in harmony with the natural world by fostering love, appreciation, and understanding of the Sonoran Desert. When the museum opened it had only four employees. Today it has more than 100 paid employees, nearly 200 docents, and close to 300 volunteers. About 85 percent of the museum is outside, where visitors can enjoy native and the endangered animals exhibited in award-winning naturalistic habitat enclosures, an innovation in exhibitory developed by the museum. Most visitors spend between two and three hours touring the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, but as the museum continues to grow, it is becoming harder and harder to see it all in such a short amount of time. Visitors should plan to come early and stay late!

The Debt Collector by Lynn Hightower Summary

Cincinnati homicide detective and single mother Sonora Blair puts everything on the line as she battles to find justice after a multiple-murder home invasion At a house at the end of a cul-de-sac in the Cincinnati suburbs, widowed Police Specialist Sonora Blair and her partner, Sam Delarosa, discover the bodies of Carl Stinnet and two children. Hiding under the bed in the master bedroom is Carl’s wife, Joy. The dying mother holds her unharmed infant daughter and keeps repeating the Hail Mary, claiming “the Angel” saved them. Joy’s deathbed assertion that she saw two men and the Angel—along with differences in the victims’ manners of death—make Sonora believe there were multiple killers. Two suspects are found and arrested, but Sonora doesn’t get closure. She’s sure there was a third person in that horrific crime scene, and she can’t stop working the case, even after she’s warned to walk away. Amid concerns about her own son and daughter, and her certainty that she’ll never sleep soundly again, Sonora prepares to confront a murderer who’s about to collect on one last IOU. The Debt Collector is the 4th book in the Sonora Blair Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

A Girl and Five Brave Horses by Sonora Carver,Elizabeth Land Summary

A Girl and Five Brave Horses, first published in 1961, is the inspirational autobiography of Sonora Webster Carver (1904-2003) - one of the first female “horse divers” - and who would become a nationwide sensation. Horse-diving, where the horse climbs a 40 to 60 foot tower and, as the platform drops, the horse and rider plunge to a deep water-filled pool below, is exciting for spectators but can be dangerous to the performers. In 1931, while delighting fans across the country, tragedy struck as Sonora hit the water at an awkward angle, detaching both her retinas and leaving her blind. However, Sonora would continue to dive horses until 1942. Included are 16 pages of photographs. Sonora Carver's story was the basis of the 1991 Disney movie Wild Hearts Can't be Broken.

Black Noise by Brian D’Aquino Summary

Qual è la consistenza della linea che divide il suono dal rumore? Con quali armi si combatte la battaglia per lo spazio acustico nelle città? In che modo il sound di una piccola isola dei Caraibi è riuscito a esercitare un’influenza tanto profonda sulla musica pop ed elettronica del nuovo millennio? Amplificando il concetto di rumore nella sua dimensione estetica e politica, il testo intende ripensare il legame tra suono, tecnologia, razza e potere a partire dalla specifica impronta sonora della musica giamaicana: reggae, dub e dancehall. Il risultato è una critica culturale scritta “con le orecchie sull’altoparlante”, radicale e rigorosa, che registra il modo in cui altre epistemologie, provenienti dalla periferia globale, possono interrompere la narrazione occidentale della modernità.

Beyond the Drug War in Mexico by Wil G. Pansters,Benjamin T. Smith,Peter Watt Summary

This volume aims to go beyond the study of developments within Mexico’s criminal world and their relationship with the state and law enforcement. It focuses instead on the nature and consequences of what we call the ‘totalization of the drug war’, and its projection on other domains which are key to understanding the nature of Mexican democracy. The volume brings together chapters written by distinguished scholars from Mexico and elsewhere who deal with three major questions: what are the main features of and forces behind the persistent militarization of the drug war in Mexico, and what are the main consequences for human rights and the rule of law; what are the consequences of these developments on the public sphere and, more specifically, on the functioning of the press and freedom of expression; and how do ordinary people engage with the effects of violence and insecurity within their communities, and which initiatives and practices of ‘justice from below’ do they develop to counter an increased sense of vulnerability, suffering and impunity?

Mexican Political Biographies, 1884–1934 by Roderic Ai Camp Summary

Here is an authoritative reference work that makes biographies of prominent Mexican national politicians from the period 1884–1934 available in English. Like the author's biographical directory for the years 1935–2009, it draws on many years of research in Mexico and the United States and seeks not only to provide accurate biographical information about each entry but also, where possible and appropriate, to connect these politicians to more recent leadership generations. Thus, Mexican Political Biographies, 1884-1934 not only is a useful historical source but also provides additional information on the family backgrounds of many contemporary figures. The work includes those figures who have held specific posts at the national level or who have served as state governors. Each biographical entry contains the following information: date of birth, birthplace, education, elective political office, political party positions, appointive governmental posts at all levels, group activities, nongovernmental positions and professions, relatives, mentors and important friends, military experience, unusual career activities, and published biographical sources. Another unique feature of the directory is appendixes with complete lists of the names and dates of cabinet members, supreme court justices, senators, deputies, selected ambassadors, and party leaders.
