Download Free Links to the Past PDF by Dan K. Utley Full Book and published by Texas A&M University Press. This book was released on 2018-08-30 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: As they tee up, make their approach shots, or line up their putts, few Texan golfers likely realize that the familiar landscapes of tee boxes, fairways, and greens can obscure stories from the past that played out on those same grounds. Such little-known links to the past include prehistoric campsites, a Spanish presidio, and a prairie where the Rough Riders trained, as well as courses constructed by New Deal agencies in the Great Depression or military personnel in times of war. Links to the Past: The Hidden History on Texas Golf Courses takes readers on a tour of eighteen Texas golf courses with surprising connections to history. On the “front nine,” points of interest include encounters with dinosaur fossils near Austin, a Comanche raid on a Spanish frontier presidio near Menard, and a battle between Anglo buffalo hunters and Native Americans near Lubbock. The “back nine” explores reminders of the East Texas lumber industry near Diboll, a training ground for the Rough Riders outside downtown San Antonio, and a race riot near Houston in 1917, to name a few. In addition, Dan K. Utley with Stanley O' Graves provide full histories of the courses themselves, detailing their design and evolution and explaining how they came to be constructed at these historically significant sites. Fun, compelling, and enlightening, this book is a reminder that history has occurred all around us, not just in historic districts, state parks, or even where official state markers might be found. Featuring “scorecards” for each course that include location, historical facts, and a “signature hole of history,” as well as historical and contemporary photographs and informative sidebars, Links to the Past is sure to entertain. Golfers, history buffs, and heritage tourists will want to toss this handy and engaging book in the front seat of the car—or zip it into the side pocket of their golf bags.
Download Free My City Links PDF by My City Links Full Book and published by My City Links. This book was released on 2021-07-01 with total page 40 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Despite Covid-19 For The Second Year In A Row, The Rath Yatra Remains As Engaging & Immersive As Ever The Lord Jagannath Rath Yatra is an event of faith for millions across the world. The ongoing pandemic has entailed strict health Covid-19 pro- tocols for a second year running. But this has done little to dampen the enthusiasm of the devout. In our Cover Story, we look at why the Rath Yatra remains as engaging and as im- mersive as at any other time in the annual event’s history. This has as much to do with history, tra- ditions and memories as with the religious signif- icance of an event that is bound to be bigger than anything else around due to its intrinsic nature. From a prominent ‘tiger state’ in the 70s, when Khairi was a well-known name in wildlife and conservation circles, Odisha has seen a gradu- al fall in interest when it comes to talking about tigers. In a special feature, this edition looks at three tigers that have their own significance in contemporary Odisha. A solemn occasion for devout Muslims across the world, Eid-ul-Zuha is a time to recall the im- portance of sacrifice. With the Covid-19 pan- demic casting a shadow over the religious event for the second year in a row, we take a close look at what different aspects associated with this special occasion mean. This is one 17-year-old who is striking all the right notes at a very young age. Meet Shreya Lenka, the Odia girl who is the only finalist from India in the audition for a place in Blackswan, the globally-acclaimed K-pop girl group from South Korea. Another youngster making a mark, albeit in a completely different field, is Sujit Meher. An Odia designer based in Bengaluru, he is making Odia handloom global by promoting it in international markets. It is well over a century but an iconic short sto- ry by Fakir Mohan Senapati on women’s rights and empowerment continues to be relevant in this day and age. Written in 1898, the ideas discussed in ‘Rebati’ continue to resonate. Read more about it in a special feature. In ScreenShots, we remember Tapu Mishra who passed away last month due to post-Covid complications. The Ollywood fraternity joins us in paying tribute to the popular singer after her untimely demise and talks about her work and her life. Elsewhere in this edition, we speak to a health expert to understand the psychological impact of the disease and how to deal with it.

Download Free Ralph Guldahl PDF by Kevin Kenny Full Book and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2016-06-21 with total page 192 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Set against the background of the Great Depression, this book presents the life of Ralph Guldahl, who for a brief period in the 1930s was widely recognized as the best golfer in the world. From 1936 to 1940, he won two successive U.S. Opens, one Masters title and three successive Western Opens, held the best scoring average award and was a Ryder Cup player with a 100 percent record. After this memorable run, he “lost his game” and almost disappeared from view. This biography is the first to trace the rise and decline of his career and answer the question: “What happened to Ralph Guldahl?”

Download Free Game of Privilege PDF by Lane Demas Full Book and published by UNC Press Books. This book was released on 2017-08-09 with total page 384 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This groundbreaking history of African Americans and golf explores the role of race, class, and public space in golf course development, the stories of individual black golfers during the age of segregation, the legal battle to integrate public golf courses, and the little-known history of the United Golfers Association (UGA)--a black golf tour that operated from 1925 to 1975. Lane Demas charts how African Americans nationwide organized social campaigns, filed lawsuits, and went to jail in order to desegregate courses; he also provides dramatic stories of golfers who boldly confronted wider segregation more broadly in their local communities. As national civil rights organizations debated golf's symbolism and whether or not to pursue the game's integration, black players and caddies took matters into their own hands and helped shape its subculture, while UGA participants forged one of the most durable black sporting organizations in American history as they fought to join the white Professional Golfers' Association (PGA). From George F. Grant's invention of the golf tee in 1899 to the dominance of superstar Tiger Woods in the 1990s, this revelatory and comprehensive work challenges stereotypes and indeed the fundamental story of race and golf in American culture.
Download Free Pleasant Bend PDF by Dan Worrall Full Book and published by Dan Michael Worrall. This book was released on 2016-12 with total page 419 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Today’s Greater Houston is a vast urban place. In the mid-nineteenth century, however, Houston was a small town – a dot in a vast frontier. Extant written histories of Houston largely confine themselves to the small area within the city limits of the day, leaving nearly forgotten the history of large rural areas that later fell beneath the city’s late twentieth century urban sprawl. One such area is that of upper Buffalo Bayou, extending westward from downtown Houston to Katy. European settlement here began at Piney Point in 1824, over a decade before Houston was founded. Ox wagons full of cotton traveled across a seemingly endless tallgrass prairie from the Brazos River east to Harrisburg (and later to Houston) along the San Felipe Trail, built in 1830. Also here, Texan families fled eastward during the Runaway Scrape of 1836, immigrant German settlers trekked westward to new farms along the north bank of the bayou in the 1840s, and newly freed African American families walked east toward Houston from Brazos plantations after Emancipation. Pioneer settlers operated farms, ranches and sawmills. Near present-day Shepherd Drive, Reconstruction-era cowboys assembled herds of longhorns and headed north along a southeastern branch of the Chisholm Trail. Little physical evidence remains today of this former frontier world.

Download Free Teutonic Myth and Legend PDF by Donald A. Mackenzie Full Book and published by Lulu.com. This book was released on 2014-09-23 with total page 466 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Teutonic Myth and Legend - An Introduction to the Eddas & Sagas, Beowulf, The Nibelungenlied, etc. This is a good collection of Northern myths, interspersed with poems and passages in classic literature that were inspired by (or are adaptations of) these myths. Like most myth collections, each story stands alone and a search for plot cohesion or smooth continuity will end in frustration. But each stand-alone is rich in imagery and a certain dreaminess that, in aggregate with all the other stories, impart a fierce, cold, clear imaginative state that lingers far after you've closed the book.

Download Free I Am Legend as American Myth PDF by Amy J. Ransom Full Book and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2018-07-10 with total page 231 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Richard Matheson’s 1954 novel I Am Legend has spawned a series of iconic horror and science fiction films, including The Last Man on Earth (1964), The Omega Man (1971) and I Am Legend (2007). The compelling narrative of the last man on earth, struggling to survive a pandemic that has transformed the rest of humanity into monsters, has become an American myth. While the core story remains intact, filmmakers have transformed the details over time, reflecting changing attitudes about race and masculinity. This reexamination of Matheson’s novel situates the tale of one man’s conflicted attitude about killing racialized “others” within its original post–World War II context, engaging the question of post-traumatic stress disorder. The author analyzes the several film adaptations, with a focus on the casting and interpretations of protagonist Robert Neville.

Download Free The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask PDF by Gabe Durham Full Book and published by Boss Fight Books. This book was released on 2020-10-26 with total page 192 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: You’ve met with a terrible fate, haven’t you? Those grim words hang over the entirety of Majora Mask, the sixth entry in the Legend of Zelda series. In his darkest adventure, Link must relive the same three days over and over again to prevent the moon from colliding into the kingdom of Termina and ending the world. Made with a small team in a single year for the Nintendo 64 from the assets of its predecessor, Majora’s Mask could have been a shameless cash-in—but instead has gained wide recognition as the most mysterious, mature, and touching game in the series. It’s also the Zelda game that has inspired more inventive fan theories and bone-chilling internet horror stories than might be expected from a high-fantasy adventure. Through rigorous research and a new in-depth interview with Majora’s North American localizer, Jason Leung, writer and editor Gabe Durham investigates the relationship between Majora’s fast-paced, adaptive development and the meaning projected onto its story by players—and shines a light on the strange and tumultuous romance between art and fandom.
Download Free Newslore PDF by Russell Frank Full Book and published by Univ. Press of Mississippi. This book was released on 2011-06-30 with total page 224 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Newslore is folklore that comments on and hinges on knowledge of current events. These expressions come in many forms: jokes, urban legends, digitally altered photographs, mock news stories, press releases or interoffice memoranda, parodies of songs, poems, political and commercial advertisements, movie previews and posters, still or animated cartoons, and short live-action films. In Newslore: Folklore on the Internet and in the News, author Russell Frank offers a snapshot of the items of newslore disseminated via the Internet that gained the widest currency around the turn of the millennium. Among the newsmakers lampooned in e-mails and on the Web were Bill and Hillary Clinton, George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein, and such media celebrities as Princess Diana and Michael Jackson. The book also looks at the folk response to the September 11 attacks and Hurricane Katrina, as well as the presidential elections of 2000 and 2004. Frank analyzes this material by tracing each item back to the news story it refers to in search of clues as to what, exactly, the item reveals about the public's response. His argument throughout is that newslore is an extremely useful and revelatory gauge for public reaction to current events and an invaluable screen capture of the latest zeitgeist.
