Miracle Hunt

Author: Kimberly Alvarado
Publisher: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform
ISBN: 1977718035
Release Date: 2018-01-25
Genre:

It was a cold, crisp November morning when three outdoorsmen ventured to the base of Arizona's tallest mountain range for the last day of their elk hunt. Like previous hunts, they spotted movement among the trees and took their separate positions. In the excitement and confusion of a fast-traveling herd, Brandon spotted a bull through the crosshairs of his scope, tracking it briefly before pulling the trigger. Instead of dropping the bull he watched his brother, Preston, stagger down the hill toward him with a bullet buried in his torso. "Prepare for the worst" became the refrain. For an agonizing month, while Preston fought for his life, his family fought their own battle with grief and fear. Yet in spite of tragedy, the true power of faith preserved. In this gripping retelling of events, Kimberly shares the family's inspiring recollections and how this accident has strengthened their bond with one another and with God. From supporting Preston in his challenging recovery to consoling Brandon over his guilt, Kimberly personally reflects on the love and profound prayer that divinely guided her and everyone in Preston's support chain to find light in the darkness. Miracles are rare, but with faith, they're real.

American Studies Ecocriticism and Citizenship

Author: Joni Adamson
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781135078836
Release Date: 2013-01-04
Genre: Literary Collections

This collection reclaims public intellectuals and scholars important to the foundational work in American Studies that contributed to emerging conceptions of an "ecological citizenship" advocating something other than nationalism or an "exclusionary ethics of place." Co-editors Adamson and Ruffin recover underrecognized field genealogies in American Studies (i.e. the work of early scholars whose scope was transnational and whose activism focused on race, class and gender) and ecocriticism (i.e. the work of movement leaders, activists and scholars concerned with environmental justice whose work predates the 1990s advent of the field). They stress the necessity of a confluence of intellectual traditions, or "interdisciplinarities," in meeting the challenges presented by the "anthropocene," a new era in which human beings have the power to radically endanger the planet or support new approaches to transnational, national and ecological citizenship. Contributors to the collection examine literary, historical, and cultural examples from the 19th century to the 21st. They explore notions of the common—namely, common humanity, common wealth, and common ground—and the relation of these notions to often conflicting definitions of who (or what) can have access to "citizenship" and "rights." The book engages in scholarly ecological analysis via the lens of various human groups—ethnic, racial, gendered, coalitional—that are shaping twenty-first century environmental experience and vision. Read together, the essays included in American Studies, Ecocriticism, and Citizenship create a "methodological commons" where environmental justice case studies and interviews with activists and artists living in places as diverse as the U.S., Canada, Haiti, Puerto Rico, Taiwan and the Navajo Nation, can be considered alongside literary and social science analysis that contributes significantly to current debates catalyzed by nuclear meltdowns, oil spills, hurricanes, and climate change, but also by hopes for a common future that will ensure the rights of all beings--human and nonhuman-- to exist, maintain, and regenerate life cycles and evolutionary processes
