A PLACE TO DIE is the story of Johnny Ringo when he discovers what it means to be haunted by a killer who has taken the life of his only brother. The labyrinthine trail will lead him through the... More > hills of Kentucky in 1938 as he takes on the role of amateur investigator. The story envelopes all that is rare about the region and its people - tradition, loyalty and kindness as well as clannishness. Yet it stands alone in two important ways. First, it shows an underlying passion and support between two brothers, and it reveals a rare but dignified portrait of a sixteen-year-old boy struggling with the reality that his own life is in danger. Even more importantly, however, A PLACE TO DIE describes the heart-wrenching effects of a boy alone, as he deals with moonshiners, bootleggers and a Machiavellian acting sheriff, and has only his vigilance, courage, and knowledge of the hills to depend on as he runs for his life⎯from the law with a warrant for his arrest and from a stone cold killer who is closing in on him.< Less

Welcome to Ironville. Family tradition claims Granny Lupton was a dour and unexciteable woman, and this quality may be seen in her portrait taken in 1903. As if to make up for this lack of... More > personal charisma she was endowed with a great passion for photography, and she photographed and interviewed almost everybody who lived in Ironville between 1886 and 1925—including the more unorthodox and peculiar characters of the town (many of whom were her relatives). This is why we proudly claim her as a pioneering photographic journalist. All of the stories and captions in this book are comedic farces drawn entirely from my imagination, and are in no way intended to be considered as factual biographies or actual accounts of the person or persons who appear in the photographs. Ironville is an imaginary place and the people described herein are a literary invention inspired by old photographs.< Less

More > disease and depression, marked with elaborate rituals for important events, punctuated by crude justice, and entirely enmeshed in a web of human relationships quite unlike those of any other place. These aspects, and others, are described with precision and care, and related in a matter-of-fact style that leaves the reader space to appreciate the ironies inherent in the juxtaposition of this world with our own. There is no better text for transporting the imagination into twentieth century Mongghul Qinghai. Keith Dede, Associate Professor of Chinese, Lewis & Clark College< Less
