If you loved following the solo female adventures in Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert or Wild by Cheryl Strayed- this is most definitely the book for you. The author of Journey to the Heart of Pachamama was a professional athlete and adventurer, who pushed beyond all sense of limitation and convention. Hers was a life fueled by addiction and the drive to be number one. However, the number one position proved to be not only lonely, but impossible to maintain against her most ruthless competitor-herself. From a hilarious pursuit to find true love, to getting sober and realizing that love is experienced only when it is given, this is her journey from Manhattan Beach, California to the indigenous villages of Peru, and finally, to the Heart of Pachamama. Her awakening- woven with naked candor, wisdom and humor is universal- True love finds us once we realize that we are the one we've been searching for.

Inspired by the author's own search for her roots, Bone by Bone: A Love Story spans 187 years (1830-2017) and is the story of seven generations of a family and the tragedies, trauma, and ultimately love that they unknowingly pass along to their future generations. Beginning in the Choctaw homeland in Mississippi, the lineage suffers displacement, abandonment, betrayal, and rejection that are repeated generation after generation, yet the ancestral love and deep spiritual connections are also passed along, and ultimately set them all free. A story of tragedy and ancestral healing, Bone by Bone reminds us that we are all connected and loved.

In Musicians in Transit Matthew B. Karush examines the transnational careers of seven of the most influential Argentine musicians of the twentieth century: Afro-Argentine swing guitarist Oscar Alemán, jazz saxophonist Gato Barbieri, composer Lalo Schifrin, tango innovator Astor Piazzolla, balada singer Sandro, folksinger Mercedes Sosa, and rock musician Gustavo Santaolalla. As active participants in the globalized music business, these artists interacted with musicians and audiences in the United States, Europe, and Latin America and contended with genre distinctions, marketing conventions, and ethnic stereotypes. By responding creatively to these constraints, they made innovative music that provided Argentines with new ways of understanding their nation’s place in the world. Eventually, these musicians produced expressions of Latin identity that reverberated beyond Argentina, including a novel form of pop ballad; an anti-imperialist, revolutionary folk genre; and a style of rock built on a pastiche of Latin American and global genres. A website with links to recordings by each musician accompanies the book.

Weaving the Past offers a comprehensive and interdisciplinary history of Latin America's indigenous women. While the book concentrates on native women in Mesoamerica and the Andes, it covers indigenous people in other parts of South and Central America, including lowland peoples in and beyond Brazil, and Afro-indigenous peoples, such as the Garifuna, of Central America. Drawing on primary and secondary sources, it argues that change, not continuity, has been the norm for indigenous peoples whose resilience in the face of complex and long-term patterns of cultural change is due in no small part to the roles, actions, and agency of women. The book provides broad coverage of gender roles in native Latin America over many centuries, drawing upon a range of evidence from archaeology, anthropology, religion, and politics. Primary and secondary sources include chronicles, codices, newspaper articles, and monographic work on specific regions. Arguing that Latin America's indigenous women were the critical force behind the more important events and processes of Latin America's history, Kellogg interweaves the region's history of family, sexual, and labor history with the origins of women's power in prehispanic, colonial, and modern South and Central America. Shying away from interpretations that treat women as house bound and passive, the book instead emphasizes women's long history of performing labor, being politically active, and contributing to, even supporting, family and community well-being.
