Summary : Written to commemorate the Bicentennial in 1976, James A. Michener’s magnificent saga of the West is an enthralling celebration of the frontier. Brimming with the glory of America’s past, the story of Colorado—the Centennial State—is manifested through its people: Lame Beaver, the Arapaho chieftain and warrior, and his Comanche and Pawnee enemies; Levi Zendt, fleeing with his child bride from the Amish country; the cowboy, Jim Lloyd, who falls in love with a wealthy and cultured Englishwoman, Charlotte Seccombe. In Centennial, trappers, traders, homesteaders, gold seekers, ranchers, and hunters are brought together in the dramatic conflicts that shape the destiny of the legendary West—and the entire country. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from James A. Michener's Hawaii. Praise for Centennial “A hell of a book . . . While he fascinates and engrosses, Michener also educates.”—Los Angeles Times “An engrossing book . . . imaginative and intricate . . . teeming with people and giving a marvelous sense of the land.”—The Plain Dealer “Michener is America’s best writer, and he proves it once again in Centennial. . . . If you’re a Michener fan, this book is a must. And if you’re not a Michener fan, Centennial will make you one.”—The Pittsburgh Press “An absorbing work . . . Michener is a superb storyteller.”—BusinessWeek

Summary : In this well-written and solidly researched study, Alan R. Havig provides the history of the first one hundred years of the State Historical Society of Missouri, a state agency that counts thousands of Missouri citizens as members and touches the lives of thousands more through its programs. The book's chapters are organized chronologically and coincide with the agency's chief administrators' terms of service. Focusing on the society's origins, the initial chapter discusses the work of Francis A. Sampson, the society's first paid administrator. The following two chapters are on Floyd C. Shoemaker, who served as secretary from 1915 to 1960. Chapters 4 and 5 treat the administrations of Dr. Richard S. Brownlee, director from 1960 to 1985, and Dr. James W. Goodrich, executive director from 1985 to the present. Havig addresses such key topics as the growth of the society's collections, which include the largest collection of local newspapers in the United States; the reference library, featuring nationally famous collections of rare books on Missouri history and western Americana; the Western Historical Manuscript Collection; and an extensive assortment of visual art, including a famed collection of works by Thomas Hart Benton and George Caleb Bingham. Havig also examines the society's collaboration with the University of Missouri in obtaining physical space for its operations; its work with local groups in promoting special events such as Missouri's centennial in 1920-1921; the society's outstanding publications program; its role in the placement of historic markers along Missouri highways; its sponsorship of History Day; and numerous other endeavors made by the society to preserve and disseminate Missouri's rich heritage to the state's citizens. A Centennial History of the State Historical Society of Missouri, 1898-1998 will be of special value to professionals working in Missouri history and in the field of state and local history. It will also appeal to anyone who shares an interest in the state's fascinating past.

Summary : In The Centennial Cure, the second volume in the Studies in Atlantic Canada History series, Meaghan Elizabeth Beaton critically examines the intersection of state policy, cultural development, and commemoration in Nova Scotia during Canada’s centennial celebrations. Beaton’s engaging and insightful analysis of four case studies­– the establishment of the Cape Breton Miners’ Museum, the construction of Halifax’s Centennial Swimming Pool, the Community Improvement Program, and the 1967 Nova Scotia Highland Games and Folk Festival­–reveals the province’s attempts to reimagine and renew public spaces. Through these case studies Beaton illuminates the myriad ways in which Nova Scotians saw themselves, in the context of modernity and ethnic identity, during the post-war years. The successes and failures of these infrastructure and cultural projects, intended to foster and develop cultural capital, reflected the socio-economic realities and dreams of local communities. The Centennial Cure shifts our focus away from the dominant studies on Expo’67 to provide a nuanced and tension filled account of how Canada’s 1967 centennial celebrations were experienced in other parts of Canada.
