Asian/Pacific Islander American Women is the first collection devoted to the historical study of A/PI women's diverse experiences in America. Covering a broad terrain from pre-large scale Asian emigration and Hawaii in its pre-Western contact period to the continental United States, the Philippines, and Guam at the end of the twentieth century, the text views women as historical subjects actively negotiating complex hierarchies of power.
The volume presents new findings about a range of groups, including recent immigrants to the U.S. and understudied communities. Comprised of original new work, it includes chapters on women who are Cambodian, Chamorro, Chinese, Filipino, Hmong, Japanese, Korean, Native Hawaiian, South Asian, and Vietnamese Americans. It addresses a wide range of women's experiences-as immigrants, military brides, refugees, American born, lesbians, workers, mothers, beauty contestants, and community activists. There are also pieces on historiography and methodology, and bibliographic and video documentary resources.
This groundbreaking anthology is an important addition to the scholarship in Asian/Pacific American studies, ethnic studies, American studies, women's studies, and U.S. history, and is a valuable resource for scholars and students.

We Southern guys love the ladies and we love to eat and to watch the world go by. Sometimes we love the Southern climate, sometimes that climate scares hell out of us. And there's the flora and fauna of the South , so no, we can't forget the blooms and critters and there are a few of 'em scattered in the poems in this little book In all 34 poems reflect what I, and I believe other Southerners, love and are good for us fill these few pages. The poems are my stuff, written by a guy and sometimes a naughty word creeps in. All of the poems have a Southern flavor. I'm truly hoping not only the guys but the ladies will like my stuff. The ladies may skip the naughty words. Or, they may enjoy them. Some of these poems were previously published and a few were also reprinted in Quiction where I was a weekly contributor. Poem titles and the publications where my work were originally found are as follows. Hummingbird, Cardinal, Snowy Egret, Circles and Cycles, A Benign Blue Sky, Lowcountry Threads, Fishin' In The Gulf Stream, and Southern Boy were first published in Dead Mule School of Southern Literature. Outside My Door, Another Skin and A Seafood Boil were in Southern Hum. Separation and Reunion and Stuff Makes Me Cold, Me and Myself Again, and A Frogmore Stew were in Gator Springs Gazette. Bogalusa Blues, On the Corner of Religion and Jazz, Wanderlust, and Cajun Solution were first published in Quiction. Vile Beauties was in Cellar Door. Louisiana first appeared in Flush Fiction Magazine. The remaining poems are published here for the first time.
Sarah Orne Jewett (September 3, 1849 - June 24, 1909) was an American novelist, short story writer and poet, best known for her local color works set along or near the southern seacoast of Maine. Jewett is recognized as an important practitioner of American literary regionalism Jewett's family had been residents of New England for many generations, and Sarah Orne Jewett was born in South Berwick, Maine.Her father was a doctor, and Jewett often accompanied him on his rounds, becoming acquainted with the sights and sounds of her native land and its people. As treatment for rheumatoid arthritis, a condition that developed in early childhood, Jewett was sent on frequent walks and through them also developed a love of nature. In later life, Jewett often visited Boston, where she was acquainted with many of the most influential literary figures of her day; but she always returned to South Berwick, small seaports near which were the inspiration for the towns of "Deephaven" and "Dunnet Landing" in her stories. Jewett was educated at Miss Olive Rayne's school and then at Berwick Academy, graduating in 1866.She supplemented her education through an extensive family library. Jewett was "never overtly religious," but after she joined the Episcopal church in 1871, she explored less conventional religious ideas. For example, her friendship with Harvard law professor Theophilus Parsons stimulated an interest in the teachings of Emanuel Swedenborg, an eighteenth-century Swedish scientist and theologian, who believed that the Divine "was present in innumerable, joined forms - a concept underlying Jewett's belief in individual responsibility
