Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The mystique of the Wild West perpetuated by Buffalo Bill, Zane Grey and Louis L'Amour, John Wayne, and the Marlboro Man has hindered the serious study of the real region west of the ninety-eighth meridian. Michael P. Malone and Richard W. Etulain move beyond myth and beyond the influential frontier thesis advanced by Frederick Jackson Turner to write about the American West as it has actually developed in the twentieth century. In vivid detail they describe a region too richly varied and dynamic to be contained by the imagination. Extending into the 1980s, The American West: A Twentieth-Century History is the first comprehensive survey of the modern West to appear in many years. Malone and Etulain discuss economic, political, social, and cultural developments in the West from the turn of the century to the onset of the Great Depression, when the region was still in a colonial relationship to the urban, industrial Northeast and upper Midwest; from 1930 to the end of World War II, when the West was transformed by New Deal programs and by even greater federal spending in military installations; and from 1945 to the present, when the West experienced rapid changes in demographics and a series of trendsetting lifestyles. Unique to this history are chapters about the rich cultural heritage of the modern West and about the lives of men, women, and children of various ethnic groups. Detailed bibliographical essays are included. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
Inhaltsangabe: Playing in a maze, twelve-year-old Winnie is hurled back in time and marooned on a nineteenth-century estate until she can solve the maze and return to the present.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-8-- When Winnie finds a large, intricate maze spray-painted on a deserted playground, she can't resist trying to negotiate it. As she triumphantly reaches the center, she finds herself transported 100 years into the past, but on the same spot--in the center of an overgrown but still discernible hedge maze. She is given shelter by a young girl and her aunt who believe that Winnie is the victim of a terrible accident which has left her with amnesia. They warn her to stay out of the abandoned and dangerous hedge maze--people have been known to disappear in it. Winnie knows that the only way to return to her own home is through the maze, but she is being constantly watched by the strange and unfriendly housekeeper, who believes that Winnie is a mazemaker and knows the secret of the last turn. While Mazemaker isn't one of the best time-travel fantasies ever written, it does have a good puzzle as its base and should satisfy readers looking for some light fare. --Susan M. Harding, Mesquite Public Library, Tex.
