A deeply sympathetic, colorful evocation of life on the American prairies In Way Down Yonder in the Indian Nation—a title inspired by the lyrics of Woody Guthrie—best-selling author Michael Wallis creates a brilliant tableau of America’s heartland. Featuring a new introduction by the author, this collection of sixteen essays reflects the finest examples of Wallis’s writing and harkens back to a time before fast food and malls replaced family-owned diners along Route 66. From tales of the notorious Oklahoma panhandle, where “the only law was the colt and the carbine,” to the fate of Woody Guthrie’s mother Nora, who, burdened by depression, set fire to her kids and spent the last years of her life in an asylum, Way Down Yonder in the Indian Nation brings to life some of Oklahoma’s most memorable characters—the famous and infamous, the ordinary and down-home. “Enclosed within the covers of this book are some of my favorite spoonfuls of Oklahoma,” says Wallis. The result is a quintessential American book—a crazy quilt of stories and a powerful portrait of Okie identity.

The films from Pixar Animation Studios belong to the most popular family films today. From Monsters Inc to Toy Story and Wall-E, the animated characters take on human qualities that demand more than just cultural analysis. What animates the human subject according to Pixar? What are the ideological implications? Pixar with Lacan has the double aim of analyzing the Pixar films and exemplifying important psychoanalytic concepts (the voice, the gaze, partial object, the Other, the object a, the primal father, the name-of-the-father, symbolic castration, the imaginary/ the real/ the symbolic, desire and drive, the four discourses, masculine/feminine), examining the ideological implications of the images of human existence given in the films.

The intersection of I-55 and Illinois Route 53, a major north-south road in DuPage Township, became a stopping-off place for travelers after the US government paved Route 66, the “Mother Road,” into four lanes in 1959. West Hill Construction Company, or rather “Mr. Dover,” launched an advertising campaign that promised housing developments for a youthful population wanting their own home and wide-open spaces to raise children. A 1960 plat map filed in Will County shows the first five lots for Bolingbrook subdivision unit one along Route 53. Within five years, Westbury, Colonial Village, and King’s Park were built, and 5,000 people accepted Mr. Dover’s invitation to buy a home. Bolingbrook incorporated five years later in October 1965. Today, 50 years later, Bolingbrook contains 23,665 housing units spread over 25 square miles and is home to a diverse population of 74,411. How Bolingbrook grew from “Pathways of the Past and Future” to “A Place to Grow” is an interesting story to celebrate.

Led by the colorful pitcher Dizzy Dean, the 1934 St. Louis Cardinals personified Depression-era America. The players were underpaid, wore uniforms that were almost always torn and dirty, and had wandered into professional baseball from small towns in the Midwest where other jobs were scarce. Despite their lack of resources, however, and despite coming off two mediocre seasons, the Cardinals emerged triumphant in '34, winning the pennant by two games over the Giants and the World Series in seven games over the Tigers. The book chronicles that championship team which came to be known in baseball lore as the famous “Gas House Gang.” This work brings to life the legendary exploits of player manager Frankie Frisch and the Dean brothers—Dizzy and Paul—who combined for 49 wins that season. The era, the team, the season, and the Series are all fully covered.

Recent high school graduate, eighteen-year-old L.R. Land and his teacher, Richard Mullins, have spent the previous four years producing plays together. During this time, Mullins has become a mentor and surrogate father to the young man. After quitting his job, Mullins sets out on a journey from North Carolina's Outer Banks to San Francisco's Lands End, much of it on historic Route 66. The young man convinces his teacher to let him come along. During the journey, each learns lessons about friendship, life, and family. The relics of the Mother Road, its scenery, disjointed pavement, and leftover buildings, throw their struggles into relief as they wrestle with hopes, memories, fears, and secrets. The young man yearns for acceptance. His companion, in fragile health and more comfortable with a script than with life, is on a quest to find his own former teacher and lover. Fascinating characters they meet along the way-sidebars in a road atlas of humanity-provide colorful diversions as they interact with the travelers. "Life," according to Judge Learned Hand, "is made up of a series of judgments on insufficient data..." The travelers learn the truth of this statement as each generation attempts to understand the other.
