The Adventures Of Young Santa. “Robin Hood in Red Fur!” Refreshingly different, this “early biography” tells the story of Santa Claus from birth through his first ride. It presents Santa as a full-blooded young man, a reluctant hero motivated by love. The story is fun and exciting, featuring sword fights, dank castles, hidden treasure, fierce Vikings, daring escapes, the secret elf civilization, deceit, jealousy, humor and young romance. The Book answers “historical”questions about Santa such as: Where was Santa was born? What was he was like as a kid? How did he get his name? How did he get to the North pole? What are the Elves’ names? Why does Santa brings us gifts on Christmas eve? Why is his suit red? Why does he go down chimneys? Why do bad kids get soot in their stockings? YOUNG SANTA is destined to become a holiday classic for young and old to enjoy year after year!

Santa Anna Of Mexico. Antonio L¢pez de Santa Anna (1794?1876) is one of the most famous, and infamous, figures in Mexican history. Six times the country?s president, he is consistently depicted as a traitor, a turncoat, and a tyrant?the exclusive cause of all of Mexico?s misfortunes following the country?s independence from Spain. He is also, as this biography makes clear, grossly misrepresented. ø Will Fowler provides a revised picture of Santa Anna?s life, offering new insights into his activities in his bailiwick of Veracruz and in his numerous military engagements. The Santa Anna who emerges from this book is an intelligent, dynamic, yet reluctant leader, ingeniously deceptive at times, courageous and patriotic at others. His extraordinary story is that of a middle-class provincial criollo, a high-ranking officer, an arbitrator, a dedicated landowner, and a political leader who tried to prosper personally and help his country develop at a time of severe and repeated crises, as the colony that was New Spain gave way to a young, troubled, besieged, and beleaguered Mexican nation. ø ø

Coming Of Age In Times Of Crisis. Coming of Age in Times of Crisis is an anthropological study of the intersecting roles of gender and schooling in the lives of rural Venezuelan youth as they make the transition to adulthood during times of national political and economic crisis. Strongly grounded in local detail while speaking to larger comparative issues and the crises that surround globalization, the study enables us to see how gender roles and social class are reproduced in a culture experiencing profound upheaval, and to see how rural Venezuelans have managed to reproduce and change their culture in these circumstances. This book is based on two-and-a-half years of ethnographic field research Hurtig conducted in the Andean region of Venezuela between 1991 and 1993, and again briefly in 1996.
