Gripping True Story of War and Romance, Hope and Miracles When the odds are impossible, love goes to work. In this thrilling true-life story, readers follow the path of friendship that grows into a romance that spans continents and survives devastating hardship. Craig Keener, a respected white scholar, was cautious after a broken relationship. Médine, a well-educated African woman, met Craig through a campus ministry and the two became friends. Long after they parted for their respective worlds, Craig realized his love for her and began the arduous--and often supernatural--journey to be reunited. Médine faced terror and disease as a refugee in the war-torn Congo; Craig did not know most days if she was alive or dead. Their tender story of love beating the odds inspires readers to believe that God's own great love for each of us will always overcome.

January 4, 2007, we received notification that Craig’s plane was missing. His plane was not to be located for 24 hours due to inclement weather. During that time, a search team on ground and in the air was looking for any indication of a downed plane. January 5th about noon, the debris of a plane matching the description was spotted from the air, in a mountainous area about a mile South of the Batesville, Arkansas airport. Craig, the co-pilot, and the other pilot were unable to arrive safely at the airport due to the weather. There were no survivors. Nothing had prepared Craig’s family for this devastation. Craig’s wife and seven month old daughter, parents, sister, and numerous family and friends were devastated. A family, inexperienced in the grieving process, began the long journey. A journey of faith, family and friends. A family, who could have been pulled apart by such a tragedy, became a stronger family unit. This story chronicles the journey of one family, who were forced to learn as they went, and yet managed to complete a tragic journey. It was written as a testament of innocence, broken by devastation, the ups and downs of the grieving process, and ultimately, their survival. Written with love, it is intended as an inspirational guide to those who ultimately must face uncertainty after losing one so dear, but with the help of the One above.

Pick up a work of typical literary criticism and you know what to expect: prose that is dry, pedantic, well-meaning but tedious—slow-going and essentially humorless. But why should that be so? Why can’t more literary criticism have a political edge and be engaging and fast-paced? Why can’t it include drama, personal narrative, and even humor? Why can’t criticism become an artistic performance, rather than just a discussion of art? Art as Performance, Story as Criticism is Craig Womack’s answer to these questions. Inventive and often outrageous, the book turns traditional literary criticism on its head, rejecting distanced, purely theoretical argumentation for intimate engagement with literary works. Focusing on Native American literature, Womack mixes forms and styles. He is unafraid to combine meticulous research and carefully considered historical perspectives with personal reactions and reflections. The book opens with a short story, “The Song of Roe Náld,” in which a Native filmmaker loses control of his movie project, in part because of his homoerotic attraction to its star. The following chapters, or “mus(e)ings,” include original dramas, while others more closely resemble traditional literary criticism, such as essays discussing the lesser-known plays of Lynn Riggs and the stories of Durango Mendoza. Still other chapters defy easy categorization, such as the piece “Caught in the Current, Clinging to a Twig,” in which Womack interweaves historical analysis of the state of the Creek Nation in 1908 with a vivid recreation of the last day on earth of Creek poet Alexander Posey. Throughout the book, the author offers his take on such controversial issues as the Cherokee freedmen issue and the ban on gay marriage. In being different, Womack seeks to breathe new life into literary analysis and in-troduce criticism to a wider audience. Radical, groundbreaking, and refreshing, Art as Performance, Story as Criticism reinvents literary criticism for the twenty-first century.

Josh Henneha has always been a traveler, drowning in dreams, burning with desires. As a young boy growing up within the Muskogee Creek Nation in rural Oklahoma, Josh experiences a yearning for something he cannot tame. Quiet and skinny and shy, he feels out of place, at once inflamed and ashamed by his attraction to other boys. Driven by a need to understand himself and his history, Josh struggles to reconcile the conflicting voices he hearsÑfrom the messages of sin and scorn of the non-Indian Christian churches his parents attend in order to assimilate, to the powerful stories of his older Creek relatives, which have been the center of his upbringing, memory, and ongoing experience. In his fevered and passionate dreams, Josh catches a glimpse of something that makes the Muskogee Creek world come alive. Lifted by his great-aunt LucilleÕs tales of her own wild girlhood, Josh learns to fly back through time, to relive his peopleÕs history, and uncover a hidden legacy of triumphs and betrayals, ceremonies and secrets he can forge into a new sense of himself. When as a man, Josh rediscovers the boyhood friend who first stirred his desires, he realizes a transcendent love that helps take him even deeper into the Creek world he has explored all along in his imagination. Interweaving past and present, history and story, explicit realism and dreamlike visions, Craig WomackÕs Drowning in Fire explores a young manÕs journey to understand his cultural and sexual identity within a framework drawn from the community of his origins. A groundbreaking and provocative coming-of-age story, Drowning in Fire is a vividly realized novel by an impressive literary talent.

A stunning, new project from Craig Hatkoff about a remarkable lion king named Cecil and his pride. At Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe's largest game reserve, more than 100 species of mammals live together. Lions, giraffes, zebras, elephants, leopards, and rhinos roam freely through vast deserts, forests, and grasslands. Cecil the Lion was the king of them all. There are no fences or walls like in a zoo. It's a diverse ecosystem, but there's a delicate balance. When something changes, it sends a ripple throughout the whole park. No one knew it yet, but a ripple was about to be felt around the world. This is the tale of Cecil's dramatic rise to power and an unlikely partnership with his rival, Jericho, that would eventually save his pride. The book is filled with stunning, full-color photos taken by Brent Stapelkamp, a lion researcher for the Wildlife Conservation Research Unit at Oxford University. Brent has spent years tracking, studying, and photographing Cecil and his pride.
