Clara Brown: The Rags to Riches True Story of a Freed Slave of Central City, Colorado

by Julie McDonald

The wonderful and inspiring story of Clara Brown, 1800-1885, is one of my all-time favorite stories!

The Abolitionist’s Wife

South Texas Drag

Take a trip through the South Texas terrain through the eyes of drug runner, Toño Garcia. His distinctive South Texas slang adds a unique charm to this dark story, but the appeal and originality doesn't stop there. This guy knows more about style than Carrie Bradshaw, which adds massive flavor and a whole new twist to a tale about "crime as a way of life" in South Texas.Toño sets the mood of every scene by describing the sagebrush and cactuses, the 100-degree heat, the dusty roads, and winding rivers. He sets the mood, too, cluing us into memories, his history. These tales--from the time he had to smuggle prize-winning horse jizz across the border, to the 55-gallon tanks that serve as human caskets for his "colleagues" the Bass brothers when drug deals go wrong--come to...
