Summary "For Héctor and Lilia, pursuit of the American Dream became every parent's worst fear: their infant daughter vanished in the midst of their border crossing from Mexico to the United States. With great empathy and a keen awareness of current events, Michel Stone delivers a novel of surpassing sensitivity and heart. Years ago, young lovers Héctor and Lilia dreamed of a brighter future for their family in the United States. Héctor left Mexico first, to secure work and housing, but when Lilia, desperate to be with Héctor, impetuously crossed the border with their infant daughter, Alejandra, mother and child were separated, and Alejandra was never returned to her parents. Now, four years later, the family finally has a chance for reunion, but the damage wreaked by their traumatic separation may well be irreparable. After that disastrous border crossing, Héctor and Lilia lived and worked in South Carolina for several years before a misunderstanding with immigration officials forced their return to their sleepy hometown of Oaxaca, in Southern Mexico. Their perspectives permanently altered, the pair has at last achieved relative equilibrium, with a toddler son and another baby on the way, when they receive an unexpected tip that might lead them to Alejandra. Working increasingly illegal jobs to earn money for his journey north, Héctor goes in search of answers about his long-absent daughter. Meanwhile, in Héctor's absence, a bedridden Lilia awaits the birth of their third child, but cannot keep herself from reliving the worst mistakes of her past. In luminous, compassionate prose, Michel Stone renders a landscape of shifted expectations, a marriage put to an unimaginable test, and the consequences of wanting more for the next generation "-- Provided by publisher.

Title Dodge City :
Author Clavin, Thomas, author.
Edition: First edition.
Publication Date(s) 2017
Format: Books
Summary "Dodge City, Kansas, is a place of legend. The town that started as a small military site exploded with the coming of the railroad, cattle drives, eager miners, settlers, and various entrepreneurs passing through to populate the expanding West. Before long, Dodge City's streets were lined with saloons and brothels and its populace was thick with gunmen, horse thieves, and desperadoes of every sort. By the 1870s, Dodge City was known as the most violent and turbulent town in the West. Enter Wyatt Earp and Bat Masterson. Young and largely self-trained men, the lawmen led the effort that established frontier justice and the rule of law in the American West, and did it in the wickedest place in the United States. When they moved on, Wyatt to Tombstone and Bat to Colorado, a tamed Dodge was left in the hands of Jim Masterson. But before long Wyatt and Bat, each having had a lawman brother killed, returned to that threatened western Kansas town to team up to restore order again in what became known as the Dodge City War before riding off into the sunset. The true story of their friendship, romances, gunfights, and adventures, along with the remarkable cast of characters they encountered along the way (including Wild Bill Hickock, Jesse James, Doc Holliday, Buffalo Bill Cody, John Wesley Hardin, Billy the Kid, and Theodore Roosevelt) has gone largely untold--lost in the haze of Hollywood films and western fiction, until now"-- Provided by publisher.
