". . . at the Island of Lost Luggage, they line up: the disappeared, the lost children, the Earharts of modern life. It's your bad luck to die in the cold wars of certain nations. But in the line at Unclaimed Baggage, no one mourns for the sorry world that sent them here . . ." The abused. The oppressed. The terrified victims of institutionalized insanity. Making daring connections between the personal and the political, Janet McAdams draws new lines in the conflict between the new and old worlds as she redefines the struggle to remain human. This award-winning collection of poetry forges surprising links among seemingly unrelated forms of violence and resistance in today's world: war in Central America, abuses against Nature, the battleground of the bedroom. McAdams evokes the absurdity of everyday existence as she sends out a new call for social responsibility. The Island of Lost Luggage is the poetry winner of the 1999 First Book Awards competition of the Native Writers' Circle of the Americas.

* Horses, adventure, and mystery * Tia and her pony Gable are inseparable. When her father proposes a visit to a remote island to research the ancient legend of shipwrecked horse, Tia is reluctant until she realizes that Gable can come, too. Riding alone on the cliffs of the island, Tia meets a dark rider on a dark horse, who turn out to be an island-born teen, Daniel, and his amazing island horse, Harley. Daniel and Tia hit it off and spend days riding together. Daniel introduces Tia and Gable to the joys of swimming in the ocean, as well as honing their cross-country jumping skills. Elsewhere on the island, though, events take on a sinister pattern as the story of the shipwreck emerges and Tia’s father seems to be closing in on the mystery of the island horse. Soon, Tia and Gable must fight not only the awesome power of the sea but combat the evil human force that threatens their existence on the island.

Winner of the Joseph Levenson Post-1900 Book Prize This cultural study of public space examines the cityscape of Taipei, Taiwan, in rich descriptive prose. Contemplating a series of seemingly banal subjects--maps, public art, parks--Joseph Allen peels back layers of obscured history to reveal forces that caused cultural objects to be celebrated, despised, destroyed, or transformed as Taipei experienced successive regime changes and waves of displacement. In this thoughtful stroll through the city, we learn to look beyond surface ephemera, moving from the general to the particular to see sociocultural phenomena in their historical and contemporary contexts.
