Book Summary:

This title was first published in 2001. "This is also a study of rural Xhosa identity and community, and its survival in the face of the overwhelming odds stacked against it by colonialism and apartheid. The maintenance of homestead production can be properly understood only if this wider context is taken into consideration. The analysis is thus directly relevant to current debates about agrarian change, land reform and economic development in South Africa's communal areas, since it shows how some rural Xhosa are able to maintain a sense of community and identity, and of how they are able to harness the socio-cultural resources at their disposal to engage in productive activity, with some success."--BOOK JACKET.

Book Summary:

Deep in the Ouachita Mountains of Arkansas in a place known as Grymme Creek Hollow was an abandoned homestead. Abandoned did not mean it was uninhabited. It was abandoned because the original owner was long gone. The chickens left behind claimed the Homestead for themselves. A stone wall surrounded the homestead and the chickens believed this was where civilization began and ended. Outside that stone wall was the dangerous wilderness known as the Deep Brush. The homestead was home to a chick named Chick. He was named Chick because his parents were not very imaginative. However Chick was very imaginative and had a real talent for finding adventure. Aunty Hysidia, of the ruling Council of Aunties has accused Chick's Father, Walter, of stealing corn. A serious offense that is punishable by being exiled into the Deep Brush. Chick, with his friends Peq and Quinny, must prove Walter's innocence.

Book Summary:

'Heavy footsteps stomped up the wooden step and onto the back porch. The screen door banged behind him. Bright blue eyes sparkled with excitement. In a booming voice, he asked, 'Does anyone here want to move to Kansas?'' Ephraim Von Horne felt the longing to search for new lands, much as his own grandfather had done some years previous when he left Europe with his family to find a new home in America. On a trip to Kansas in 1869, Ephraim found the perfect spot northwest of the small village of Wichita. Proudly, he planted his sign: 'Homestead.' After returning home full of hope, he, his wife, and his family put their departure plans in motion. Inspired by the journey of an actual family, The Homestead Trail takes the reader on an exciting and enlightening trip across the United States. Learn of the Golden Spike era of the railroads; an adventuresome riverboat trip up the Missouri River; the excitement of the Pony Express; the heart-stopping nearness of the Longhorn cattle drives; the glamour of the 'wind wagons, ' and the stark reality of the Santa Fe Trail.

Book Summary:

 Cumberland Posey began his career in 1911 playing outfield for the Homestead Grays, a local black team in his Pennsylvania hometown. He soon became the squad's driving force as they dominated semi-pro ball in the Pittsburgh area. By the late 1930s the Grays were at the top of the Negro Leagues with nine straight pennant wins. Posey was also a League officer; he served 13 years as the first black member of the Homestead school board; and he wrote an outspoken sports column for the African American weekly, the Pittsburgh Courier. He was also regarded as one of the best black basketball players in the East; he was the organizer of a team that held the consensus national black championship five years running. Ten years after his induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame, he became a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame--one of only two athletes to be honored by two pro sports halls.

Book Summary:

In 1973, Norma Cobb, her husband Lester and the their five children, the oldest of whom was nine years old and the youngest, twins, barely one, pulled up stakes in the lower 48 and headed north to Alaska to follow a pioneer dream of claiming land under the Homestead Act. The only land available lay north of Fairbanks near the Arctic Circle where grizzlies outnumbered humans twenty to one. In addition to fierce winters and predatory animals, the Alaskan frontier drew the more unsavory elements of society's fringes. From the beginning, the Cobbs found themselves pitted in a life or death feud with unscrupulous neighbors who would rob from new settlers, attempt to burn them out, shoot them and jump their claim. The Cobbs were chechakos, tenderfeet, in a lost land that consumed even toughened settlers. Everything, including their "civilized" past, conspired to defeat them. They constructed a cabin--and first snow collapsed the roof. They built too near the creek and spring breakup threatened to flood them out. Bears prowled the nearby woods, stalking the children and Lester Cobb would leave for months at a time in search of work. But through it all, they survived on the strength of Norma Cobb--a woman whose love for her family knew no bounds and whose courage in the face of mortal danger is an inspiration to us all. Arctic Homestead is her story.

Book Summary:

Step into the shoes of a black woman while she takes you through a legal hellhole that has lasted more than thirteen years. The Odyssey began in 1988 when she moved to Kingwood, Texas, approximately 23 miles from Houston. What started as a fairy tale ended up as a realty nightmare, having unknowingly bought into a planned community with foreclosable maintenance fees, her family and she had no idea what was ahead. At closing, she thought they had protected their property. Find out how Texas' dirty little secret began and how the judges, Community Associations Institute (CAI) attorneys, constable and even HUD are involved in the cover-up in this cottage industry; and it is just not in Texas. The author, Harvella Jones, President of The Texas Homeowner's Advocate Group, co-founded with her husband Johnnie, in 1996, will give you a bird's eye view of what it was like to lose her homestead after a five-year intense battle to save it and fight to save her mind as well as her life after stress threatened to take both. It promises to be one of the best documentaries you will ever read from a pro se litigant in the Texas judicial System trying to save a home from a homeowner association foreclosure. It is a 360-page book with over 100 documents illustrating unbelievable legal events, such as the cancelled check for $184.92 the actual amount the buyer paid for her $75,000 homestead property. If you thought Winona Blevins had a bad experience, wait until you read this book!
