Faith. Trust. Triumph. “I’m sorry,” the doctor said. “He is permanently and totally blind. There is nothing we can do for him.” George and Sarah Hingson looked at each other, devastated. Their six-month-old son, Michael was a happy, strawberry blond baby boy, healthy and normal in every way except one. When the Hingsons switched on a light or made silly faces, Michael did not react. Ever. “My best suggestion is that you send him to a home for the blind,” the doctor continued. “He will never be able to do anything for himself.” Forty-seven years later, a yellow Labrador retriever puppy was born in the whelping unit of Guide Dogs for the Blind in San Rafael, California. The puppy’s name was Roselle. On September 11, 2001, she saved Michael’s life. This is Roselle’s story too. —From the Introduction Every moment in Michael Hingson’s and Roselle’s lives seemed to lead up to this day. When one of four hijacked planes flew into the World Trade Center’s north tower on September 11, 2001, Michael Hingson, a district sales manager for a data protection and network security systems company, was sitting down for a meeting. His guide dog, Roselle, was at his feet. Paired for twenty-one months, man and dog spent that time forging a bond of trust, much like police partners who trust their lives to each other. Michael couldn’t see a thing, but he could hear the sounds of shattering glass, falling debris, and terrified people flooding around him and Roselle. However, Roselle sat calmly beside him. In that moment, Michael chose to trust Roselle’s judgment and not to panic. They were a team. Thunder Dog is a story that will forever change your spirit and your perspective. It illuminates Hingson’s lifelong determination to achieve parity in a sighted world and how the rare trust between a man and his guide dog can inspire an unshakable faith in each one of us.

As “the new heir apparent to Tony Hillerman,”* Kirk Mitchell brings us back to Indian country with investigator for the Bureau of Indian Affairs Emmett Parker, “a great guy to keep around.” (New York Times Book Review) Badly wounded, Emmett Parker has come home. After thirteen years of assignments that took him to every Indian nation but his own, the veteran investigator has finally arrived in Oklahoma to heal. At once a son of the Nuhmuhnuh (“the People,” as the Comanche call themselves) and a government investigator, he has ties to both sides—and is about to discover which side pulls harder. On the reservation, Emmett finds a web of familial and tribal duties—and what could become a class action suit, with Indian plaintiffs suing the BIA for oil funds. Drawn into the controversy, Emmett is then accused of murder by an investigator of his own blood. And now, a man who used to be the law is running from it… *Midwest Book Review

Auto/biographical narratives of the Americas are marked by the underlying themes of movement and belonging. This collection proposes that the impact of the historic or contemporary movement of peoples to, in, and from the Americas—whether chosen or forced—motivates the ways in which identities are constructed in this contested space. Such movement results in a cyclical quest to belong, and to understand belonging, that reverberates through narratives of the Americas. The volume brings together essays written from diverse national, cultural, linguistic, and disciplinary perspectives to trace these transnational motifs in life writing across the Americas. Drawing on international scholars from the seemingly disparate regions of the Americas—North America, the Caribbean, and Latin America—this book extends critical theories of life writing beyond limiting national boundaries. The scholarship included approaches narrative inquiry from the fields of literature, linguistics, history, art history, sociology, anthropology, political science, pedagogy, gender studies, critical race studies, and indigenous studies. As a whole, this volume advances discourse in auto/biography studies, life writing, and identity studies by locating transnational themes in narratives of the Americas and placing them in international and interdisciplinary conversations.

What do dogs mean in America? How do Americans make meaning through their dogs? The United States has long expressed its cultural unconscious through canine iconography. Through our dogs, we figure out what we're thinking and who we are, representing by proxy the things that we don't quite want to recognize in ourselves. Often, it's a specific breed or type of dog that serves as an informal cultural mascot, embodying an era's needs, fears, desires, longings, aspirations, repressions, and hopeless contradictions. Combining cultural studies with personal narrative, this book creates a playful, speculative reading of American culture through its canine self-representations. Looking at seven different breeds or types over the last seven decades, readers will go on an intellectual dog walk through some of the mazes of American cultural mythology.

I’m more convinced than ever that if you’re going to write a book it must come from deep inside you. I believe that’s so true regarding the writing of any good book, but particularly this volume. While my first published work “The Seer’s House” arrived in one single vision at 3 o’clock in the morning, my second endeavour “Miracle Dog; Miracle God” took a lot longer to emerge. For over ten years following my first publication, I was caught up in the mission field in Romania and literally didn’t have time to write a follow-up. Indeed, only after I’d returned from Romania and been separated from my best friend Snowbell, our Golden Retriever Labrador, did I really begin to accept that another book may be about to be birthed. I couldn’t shake off the writing of this book and so eventually I sat down and wrote it. Nevertheless, “Miracle Dog; Miracle God” hasn’t been the easiest manuscript to create for various reasons. Trying to keep to my subject matter what God the Father taught me about Himself through the love of a dog, when there was so much more to tell about our Romanian endeavours, hasn’t been straightforward. Writing each chapter as a parable was equally challenging, but in the end I think I’ve managed to produce what has been within me since 2008. Finally, the emotion I experienced writing about this remarkable little dog was quite unexpected. On numerous occasions I would have to literally down tools and shed tears, while at other times I laughed out loud and so enjoyed reminiscing about happier moments with Snowbell. My desire is that “Miracle Dog; Miracle God” will make you laugh and cry, yet also instruct you about the amazing unconditional love of God. After all, that’s exactly what happened to me when I was introduced to Snowbell, a beautiful gift from God to my life, if ever there was one.
