Volume I of the "Reconstruction Trilogy" set of historically accurate novels designed to tell the post Civil War story from the Southern side. The Leopard's Spots follows the story of Charles Gaston, son of a famous Confederate colonel, who leads his state of North Carolina on to a victory over the Reconstructionists who sought to create a Haiti-type situation in the South. Although it was the author's intention to set the balance straight, the book highlights the madness of slavery, the impossibility of segregation and that physical racial geographical separation is the only answer to the race problem. The other two volumes in this trilogy, Vol. II: The Clansman and Vol. III: The Traitor, were equally as successful, with The Clansman being made into DW Griffiths' smash movie hit, Birth of a Nation.

Improvisational Poetry from the Basque Country introduces the Basque bertsolari to the English-speaking world and provides an understanding of an interesting cultural phenomenon - the artist in Basque society who is capable of improvising verse on any subject spontaneously and setting it to music. The tradition is at least several centuries old and runs the gamut from amateurish efforts to periodic national championship competitions. These competitions draw thousands of listeners and pack theaters while many other thousands tune their radios to the broadcasts of the performances. A performance consists of a bertsolari, a live audience, and a challenge to put a specific theme into song. Within seconds the bertsolari is expected to create beautiful verse, set to music. The bertsolari's impromptu verses demonstrate his knowledge of the Basque language and history, as well as his ability to captivate an audience with fresh verse. Aulestia takes a scholarly and in-depth look at the art of the bertsolari. In a fascinating text, the author examines the history of a tradition that is truly unique and completely Basque. He introduces and analyzes the performing styles of great bertsolariak, including Xabier Amuriza and Jon Azpillaga. From the bertsolari's roots in the old Basque Country to the social phenomenon it is today, Aulestia's look at the improvisational oral literature of the Basques is an essential addition to their written history.
