Joanna Dawson, a Methodist local preacher, dairy farmer and local historian, combined her religious faith with a delight in the local traditions of agriculture and domestic affairs in the Yorkshire Dales. As she moved around Nidderdale during the mid 20th century she garnered a unique knowledge, based on the stories and anecdotes of the elderly people she encountered on her travels. Her enthusiasm led to a vast collection of unsorted and unclassified information which has only recently been discovered and transcribed. Hers is a fragrant scene from the farmhouse kitchens of long ago, when large teas and suppers featured as the reward for a hard-working rural life, and the wife by the range had skills and knowledge to be learned and passed on through the generations. Mrs Hibbert's Pick-Me-Up and Other Recipes from a Yorkshire Dale is illustrated with pen and ink drawings of items used in these old kitchens and photographs taken in the Dales a century ago, which aptly complement this evocative account of rural Dales life.

Though many Americans might be aware of the Olympian and football Hall of Famer Jim Thorpe or of Navajo golfer Notah Begay, few know of the fundamental role that Native athletes have played in modern sports: introducing popular games and contests, excelling as players, and distinguishing themselves as coaches. The full breadth and richness of this tradition unfolds in Native Athletes in Sport and Society, which highlights the accomplishments of Indigenous athletes in the United States and Canada but also explores what these accomplishments have meant to Native American spectators and citizens alike. ø Here are Thorpe and Begay as well as the Winnebago baseball player George Johnson, the Snohomish Notre Dame center Thomas Yarr, the Penobscot baseball player Louis Francis Sockalexis, and the Lakota basketball player SuAnne Big Crow. Their stories are told alongside those of Native athletic teams such as the NFL?s Oorang Indians, the Shiprock Cardinals (a Navajo women?s basketball team), the women athletes of the Six Nations Reserve, and the Fort Shaw Indian Boarding School?s girls? basketball team, who competed in the 1904 World?s Fair. Superstars and fallen stars, journeymen and amateurs, coaches and gatekeepers, activists and tricksters appear side by side in this collection, their stories articulating the issues of power and possibility, difference and identity, representation and remembrance that have shaped the means and meaning of American Indians playing sport in North America.
