The critically acclaimed 110-minute film Alambrista (1977) depicts the harsh realities of Mexican life on both sides of the border. For this release, a group of scholars has packaged a new director's cut of the film with a book of essays devoted to immigration and the U.S.-Mexican borderlands and an enhanced CD of the sound track.
Madam Millie contains sordid details and frank language that will make many readers blush. It is unvarnished language, as recorded directly from Millie by Max Evans over a period of almost twenty years. It presents a complete picture of the business of prostitution as it was practiced in the west from the late 1920s to the mid 1970s, told by the most successful madam in the business.
First published in 1984, Robert Utley's The Indian Frontier of the American West 1846-1890 is considered a classic for both students and scholars. For this revision, Utley includes scholarship and research that has become available in recent years.
