Home of the Brave
On the windswept prairie of the Great Plains, one woman struggles to understand why an honest account of history was never told. As she moves amongst the Sioux as a construction missionary for the Episcopal Church, her questions deepen when the pain of the tribe's past taps into hers. The questions as to whether Western Religions have relevancy for Native Americans lead her on a chaotic journey to her own spirituality. It is not scripture that helped her maintain equilibrium but the literary works of remarkable writers, both Native American and non-Native American. This is the story of a young woman finding her footing as a writer while simultaneously navigating the South Dakota reservations, in search of the "Home of the Brave." The author, Saxon Henry, published this first in a series of memoirs, on January 12, 2014.
Four Florida Moderns
Alberto Alfonso, René González, Chad Oppenheim, and Guy Peterson—The Florida Four—are making a mark for themselves in contemporary architectural circles, infusing modernist traditions with their own flair. Practitioners of modernism in Florida—or, more accurately, tropical modernism—they are producing noteworthy works that display their commitment to distinctive regionalism. This book is the first to showcase their rich and varied repertoires.
Each of the four architects has a unique take on modernism, resulting in four very different aesthetic approaches. From airports, medical facilities, and museums to open-air chapels, waterfront homes, and condominium complexes, their designs are fascinating for both their rootedness in modernist ideals and their dramatically different interpretations of it.
More than 300 vibrant, full-color photographs offer a survey of work by each of the architects. At once a striking visual tour and a thoughtful examination, Four Florida Moderns treats readers to the rich and innovative styles of tropical modernism as conceived by four trailblazing architects. 300 illustrations, Publication date February 22, 2010.
