Travis's life is perfection. He has the looks, the car, the apartment and the women. Lots of women. Debbie says the sex is revelatory, which doesn't help Sheryl. And then there's Colin. Colin's life is bleak and without hope, and his sex life is so inconsequential that it is hard to assign it a proclivity in any direction. All Colin's dreams come true when, thinking he's working for MI6, he shadows Travis's life and goes on a journey of orgiastic debauchery. But things aren't quite as they seem as the noose tightens on Travis's perfect world.

A community lynches a wrongly accused man in Caldwell’s scathing indictment of Southern prejudice When word spreads through Julie County that Sonny Clark, a black man, has assaulted Katy Barlow, a white woman, the man’s fate is sealed. With frightening speed, authorities and an outraged mob align to apprehend Clark and condemn him without trial. By the time Barlow confesses that no crime occurred, it is too late. Told from the multiple perspectives of victim and victimizers as well as passive onlookers, Trouble in July depicts in harrowing detail the tragic ignorance of individuals who fail to understand their roles in a hateful miscarriage of justice. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erskine Caldwell including rare photos and never-before-seen documents courtesy of the Dartmouth College Library.

An eloquent, thoughtful text is interwoven with and set to equally passionate music in this exploration of the most important week in the Christian calendar-Holy Week and Easter. As the "hosannas fade in crucify", we are led to wonder what we might have done, what we might have said, had we been there. What would our reaction have been to the shadow of the cross or the shock of the empty tomb? It is good to wonder, but it is better to know that because of the events of Holy Week, life eternal is the promise. For that, Christ paid the ultimate price, so that on Easter Sunday, all Christians can respond to the traditional Easter greeting, "The Lord Is Risen", with the affirmative response, "He is Risen Indeed!" From the quiet moments of introspection at the Lord's table to the terrible agony of the cross, and culminating with the joyous resurrection, this cantata is a moderately easy, yet completely satisfying and inspirational implement for worship. Indeed, He Is Risen!
