Religion is a part of all our lives. The Abernathy clan is no exception. It would be destined that at least two of them would respond to the call for worship, and two of them did. The Reverend Malcolm Abernathy followed the faith of the Anglican Church and Father Umberto Abernathy opted for the Roman Catholic Church. These two men spent most of their time in Canada, Malcolm getting into politics for a while and Umberto introduced what he considered a more practical approach to awarding of penances. In both instances the Abernathy genes prevailed and neither one practiced abstinence which was a more serious situation with Umberto than with Malcolm. Their lives and exploits are not to be taken too seriously. They are obviously figments of the imagination of the author, and are meant to be enjoyed or possibly envied.

Two of the Abernathy family had careers as lawmen. One of them, a cowboy from Kansas growing up in the days of Wild Bill Hickok learned the fast draw and started out as a hired gun but became a sheriff and landowner in New Mexico. The second Abernathy lived in modern times and grew up in Canada where he became a detective on the West Vancouver police department and received the famed Hercule Poirot trophy. Inspector Perry Abernathy was elevated to the position of Chief Constable in Nanaimo, a city on Vancouver Island. Both Abernathys, Red the sheriff and Perry the policeman exhibit the traditional family trait, namely a passion for the opposite sex and a love for vodka. The patriarch of the Canadian branch, the Reverend Abernathy sits in heaven and watches over his flock, making the occasional visit to help where he can. This is the fourth book on the Abernathys. They were very prolific and who knows when the stories will end.

Politics has always held a special place in the goals of many of the Abernathy tribe. This volume describes three of them. One is a paleontologist, one is a small town sheriff and the third is a lawyer. All of these men live and operate in Canada. One even becomes Prime Minister. The Internet is used as a political tool and many of the suggestions in the book make common sense and offer a truly bipartisan approach to many of the problems that face us all, regardless of country. The stories have humor and since all Abernathys are women chasers and drink vodka they may even represent today's politicians.

Barksdale Chronicles in America, Volume I is the first published book by Maj Robert A. Groves. His research into his maternal ancestors began at the millennium due, in large part, to the colorful family stories he recalled his mother and her siblings sharing during his childhood. Family chronicles define and preserve the contributions of ancestors to their families and communities. Through a study of our roots, we gain an appreciation of what helped shape us as individuals and citizens. This edition captures but a small part of the Barksdale family as it starts out in the New World. As followed through the lineage of John Hickerson Barksdale, early ancestors began forging a life for themselves in Virginia, South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Texas and Arkansas. They courageously served their country in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, and the Civil War. Some dipped their toes into the political waters of our country and served their communities, states and nation as elected officials. Using their creativeness, they turned resources available to them into entrepreneurial opportunities in agriculture, merchandising, and manufacturing. Some heard a higher calling and faced the moral issues of the time from rural pulpits. Indeed, the early Barksdale ancestors played a vital role in shaping the communities where they settled and the environment into which following generations were born.

Dubbed a pioneer of critical race theory, Delgado offers a book of compelling conversations about race in America Richard Delgado is one of the most evocative and forceful voices writing on the subject of race and law in America today. The New York Times has described him as a pioneer of critical race theory, the bold and provocative movement that, according to the Times "will be influencing the practice of law for years to come." In The Rodrigo Chronicles, Delgado, adopting his trademark storytelling approach, casts aside the dense, dry language so commonly associated with legal writing and offers up a series of incisive and compelling conversations about race in America. Rodrigo, a brash and brilliant African-American law graduate has been living in Italy and has just arrived in the office of a professor when we meet him. Through the course of the book, the professor and he discuss the American racial scene, touching on such issues as the role of minorities in an age of global markets and competition, the black left, the rise of the black right, black crime, feminism, law reform, and the economics of racial discrimination. Expanding on one of the central themes of the critical race movement, namely that the law has an overwhelmingly white voice, Delgado here presents a radical and stunning thesis: it is not black, but white, crime that poses the most significant problem in modern American life.
