Faith, Health, And Healing In African American Life by Stephanie Y. Mitchem and Emilie M. Townes offers a better understanding of the varieties of religiously based approaches to healing and alternative models of healing and health found in black communities in the United States. By paying attention to the role of faith and the spirit, this book offers a fuller sense of the varieties of ways black health and healthcare are perceived and addressed.

In our large print fiction section we have a western book by Lori Copeland. Outlaw’s Bride Book 1 is a story about a falsely convicted bank robber. He is sent to a rehabilitation program in the home of a California judge. His aim is to be a model prisoner, get released early and resume his mission to kill the man who wiped out his family fifteen years ago.

The following books are written by Elaine Coleman: Walt Rambo: Texas Style Bits And Spurs tells how Walt Rambo made spurs and bits. Elaine Coleman tells the story as if you were right there. Texas Haunted Forts is a fascinating account of ghostly beings haunting Texas forts. Louisiana Haunted Forts scrapes at the heart of history and offers a trove of ghostly tales fit to tell around a campfire on a dark night. Elaine moves the reader from a cold foggy evenings to strange clammy cold spots found in such places as Fort St. Baptiste. Rumor has it that St. Denis is buried beneath the floorboard of this old church to watch over the activities of the fort.
