The mapmaker's children : a novel by Sarah McCoy( Book )

25 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 1,353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Sarah Brown, daughter of abolitionist John Brown, realizes that her artistic talents may be able to help save the lives of slaves fleeing north, she becomes one of the Underground Railroad's leading mapmakers, taking her cues from the slave code quilts and hiding her maps within her paintings. She boldly embraces this calling after being told the shocking news that she can't bear children, but as the country steers toward bloody civil war, Sarah faces difficult sacrifices that could put all she loves in peril. Eden, a modern woman desperate to conceive a child with her husband, moves to an old house in the suburbs and discovers a porcelain head hidden in the root cellar--the remains of an Underground Railroad doll with an extraordinary past of secret messages, danger and deliverance. Ingeniously plotted to a riveting end, Sarah and Eden's woven lives connect the past to the present, forcing each of them to define courage, family, love, and legacy in a new way"--

The time it snowed in Puerto Rico : a novel by Sarah McCoy( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is 1961 and Puerto Rico is trapped in a tug-of-war between those who want to stay connected to the United States and those who are fighting for independence. For eleven-year-old Verdita Ortiz-Santiago, the struggle for independence is a battle fought much closer to home. Verdita has always been safe and secure in her sleepy mountain town, far from the excitement of the capital city of San Juan or the glittering shores of the United States, where her older cousin lives. She will be a seNorita soon, which, as her mother reminds her, means that she will be expected to cook and clean, go to Mass every day, choose arroz con pollo over hamburguesas, and give up her love for Elvis. And yet, as much as Verdita longs to escape this seemingly inevitable future and become a blond American bombshell, she is still a young girl who is scared by late-night stories of the chupacabra, who wishes her mother would still rub her back and sing her a lullaby, and who is both ashamed and exhilarated by her changing body. Told in luminous prose spanning two years in Verdita's life, The Time It Snowed in Puerto Rico is much more than a story about getting older. In the tradition of The House on Mango Street and Annie John, it is about the struggle to break free from the people who have raised us, and about the difficulties of leaving behind one's homeland for places unknown. At times joyous and at times heartbreaking, Verdita's story is of a young girl discovering her power and finding the strength to decide what sort of woman she'll become. From the Hardcover edition

A method for interpreting continental and analytic epistemology by Sarah McCoy( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Current investigations in epistemology tend to follow either the continental or the analytic school of thought. These schools of thought have different goals for epistemology and different procedures for achieving these goals. The purpose of this thesis is to investigate the feasibility and profitability of communication between analytic and continental philosophy in epistemology. Wittgenstein's concept of language games will be used to frame the issue; continental and analytic philosophers play different language games. One can successfully interpret a particular language game from the perspective of another language game using the principle of charity. Specifically, the principle of charity allows analytic and continental epistemologists to communicate profitably

Isaac McCoy papers by Isaac McCoy( )

in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection is almost entirely concerned with Indian missions, Indian removal, and related matters. A major part of this collection deals with its main theme: American Indians and Isaac McCoy's continuous efforts to establish a better life for them in the West. This microfilm consists substantially of correspondence written by Isaac McCoy while serving as a Baptist missionary among various Indian tribes in the 1st half of the 19th century. McCoy was one of the principal architects of the American policy to move the Indians westward in order to make room for the growing Euro-American population in the East. This is reflected in his correspondence. Early missions detailed include the station on the Wabash River at Fort Wayne, Ind., and missions on the St. Joseph & Grand rivers in Michigan Territory. The correspondence covers these topics: elementary & higher education; the physical condition of the tribes; relationships with non-Indians & the War Dept.; petty controversies with head men; mission personnel including Johnston Lykins, Jotham Meeker, & Robert Simerwell; the Baptist mission board; Muscogee Baptist Church; and relations with the federal government, particularly over appropriations of funds. Included is information on McCoy's American Indian Mission Association. In addition to these series, some of which exist in typescript form as well as the original form, are a variety of essays concerning Native Americans and Christian theology. McCoy's journals, 1 of his autobiographies, and reports to the Bureau of Indian Affairs (ser. 16-17 in the source collection) are not on this microfilm, but journal entries for 1828 and 1830 have been published
