He was interested in black writers and creatives, and supported the Harlem Renaissance, helping many black artists publish their work, including Langston Hughes, Ethel Waters, and Richard Wright. He was also the literary executor of Gertrude Stein, the famous American novelist, poet, and playwright. Other notable works by this author include: “Firecrackers. A Realistic Novel” (1925), “The Blind Bow-Boy” (1923), and “Spider Boy” (1928). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive.

Tranel's textbook is principally addressed to English speakers who want to improve their French pronunciation. It describes the difficulties typically encountered, explains why they occur and suggests ways to improve them. In addition, from a more theoretical perspective, the book provides readers with a fundamental understanding of the way French sounds are produced and how they behave according to general linguistic principles. Perfect for both relative beginners and more advanced students, Tranel's book draws on contrastive analysis, general phonetics, traditional knowledge, and more modern developments in phonology, historical linguistics, and orthography. Intended for classroom use, the book will appeal to teachers because of its wide scholarship and firm grasp of instructional principles, while students will welcome Tranel's clear style and organization.

Just off the coast of the Gulf Islands National Seashore lies Cat Island, an isolated, T-shaped sliver of sand with a remarkable past. A coveted hiding place for Jean Lafitte’s pirate treasure in the late eighteenth century and illegal booze during Prohibition, Cat Island also witnessed the first shots of the Battle of New Orleans, an encampment for Seminoles during the Trail of Tears and the first lighthouses on the Mississippi coast. As a child, author John Cuevas learned that his family had owned and lived on the island for three generations beginning with his ancestor, Juan de Cuevas, referred to as “The King of Cat Island,” who received it by way of a Spanish land grant. In this engaging work, Cuevas chronicles the historic events that occurred on the island’s shores and offers a tribute to the legacy of one of the Gulf Coast’s pioneer families.
