"Set in the American Southwest, "desert terror" films combine elements from horror, film noir and road movies to tell stories of isolation and violence. These films have eluded critical classification and analysis. The author traces the genre's origins and development, from cult exploitation to crowd-pleasing franchises to quirky auteurist fare to more recent releases"--

Addison lives a lonely secluded life on his father Manuel's plantation. Life is simple until he wakes up with Yvonne standing next to him. When she prepares a meal from Manuel's favorite fruit, everything changes and they venture out on their own to find independence. After leaving the plantation, they cross a time line only to find themselves trapped in the modern world, unable to return. Yvonne determines that it is in their best interest to return to their camp just over the mountain, but Addison is content in his new environment. Once Yvonne leaves, Addison follows from a distance, but when they meet up on the other side of the peak they realize that the meadow no longer exists. They return to the small urban town of Evansville and begin their endless search to return where Addison falls into a deep depression. James Saint Michael, a local minister, takes interest in Addison and Yvonne, but Addison rejects his help when he feels that James is insensitive. Addison spots a motorcycle in the field across from their cottage. They head out on a mind-boggling journey that sends them running for their lives, only to find that Yvonne is dreaming. However, shortly after Yvonne wakes up, Addison spots the motorcycle in the field but it is in severe need of repair. Addison takes the bike to Sam's Bike Shop and has it repaired. They spark out on a quest to find their way home to the plantation only to find every journey leads to a dead end. Yvonne decides that the answer lies over the mountain east of town, the same place they came from. They cross the peak and set up camp, but during the night Addison has an encounter with a shadowy figure in the dark. Once they return, George Hoosier knocks at the door and reveals to them that he crossed the mountain and couldn't return. Jacob Andrews stops by and confesses that he faces the same dilemma. James compares their experiences with events in the Bible. George and Addison make the determination to return only to find opposition from Yvonne. Yvonne changes her mind and decides to go with them, but when morning arrives, George is gone. The two decide to do it on their own, but on their way out ot town, Sam stops and informs them that Jacob died during the night. They decide to delay the trip until after the funeral. On the way home from Sam's Bike Shop Addison and Yvonne get into a heated argument when she reveals that she is four months pregnant. Addison tears out on the motorcycle and broadsides James' pickup truck. He lies in a coma for four months and finds his way back to the plantation through death. Yvonne goes into premature labor and dies in childbirth. Addison greets and leads her to Manuel's mansion where they watch the life of their son Claude at the gate of paradise.

Family and Civilization is the magnum opus of Carle Zimmerman, a distinguished sociologist who taught for many years at Harvard University. In this unjustly forgotten work Zimmerman demonstrates the close and causal connections between the rise and fall of different types of families and the rise and fall of civilizations, particularly ancient Greece and Rome, medieval and modern Europe, and the United States. Zimmerman traces the evolution of family structure from tribes and clans to extended and large nuclear families to the small nuclear families and broken families of today. And he shows the consequences of each structure for the bearing and rearing of children; for religion, law, and everyday life; and for the fate of civilization itself. Originally published in 1947, this compelling analysis predicted many of today’s cultural and social controversies and trends, including youth violence and depression, abortion and homosexuality, the demographic collapse of Europe and of the West more generally, and the displacement of peoples. This new edition, part of ISI Books’ Background series, has been edited and abridged by cultural commentator James Kurth of Swarthmore College and includes essays on the text by Kurth, Allan Carlson, and Bryce Christensen.

The Western Story: A Chronological Treasury consists of twenty Western stories spanning the years 1892 to 1994. For that generation of American writers who saw the frontier in the last century?including Mark Twain, Bret Harte, and Owen Wister?it seemed exotic, strange, wonderful. Others, such as Frederic Remington and John G. Neihardt, reflected the clash between various Indian nations and pioneers. These authors prepared the way for the founders of the first Golden Age of the Western story: Willa Cather, who wrote of pioneer life in Nebraska; Zane Grey, who combined wilderness experiences with romance and the search for spiritual truth; B. M. Bower, who portrayed the cowboys and frontier women she knew growing up in Montana; Max Brand, who created dramas in which the psychological and spiritual meaning of life was more important than the physical terrain; and Ernest Haycox, who combined character and drama with historical accuracy. ø Another generation of writers perpetuated this first Golden Age: Peter Dawson and T. T. Flynn, who began writing Western stories in the 1930s; Walter Van Tilburg Clark, who created a masterpiece in The Ox-Bow Incident; Dorothy M. Johnson and Les Savage Jr., who experimented with making the Western story still more realistic; and Louis L?Amour, whose visibility and popularity won legions of new readers to the genre. ø Humanity, depth, and verisimilitude were already part of the Western story when Will Henry, Elmer Kelton, and T. V. Olsen came on the scene to intensify these qualities in their own stories even as they experimented with new perspectives. And Cynthia Haseloff?s story (written especially for this collection), with its symbolism and its simplicity, may be the harbinger of a second Golden Age.
