From humble but proud origins picking fruit with her family in the fields of California to her success in helping tens of thousands of Americans rise out of poverty and escape the chains of welfare. Uncompromised The Lupe Anguiano Story is the untold saga of one woman's courage and heroism in her lifelong struggle to improve the lives of all Americans.

She is a woman who as a Nun in 1963, wearing her Habit… picketed in front of the office of the Cardinal of Los Angeles to protest the Catholic church's tolerance of the racially discriminatory practice of “redlining.” Who left the church to help the poor in East LA and developed a teen program that incubated future Latino leaders of California. Who helped calm rival gangs after the Watts Riots. Who was the first Latina invited by a presidential administration to address the needs of the Mexican American. Who championed true Bi-lingual Education for all Americans. Who Cesar Chavez sent alone to organize and lead a statewide grape boycott in Michigan. Who joined Gloria Steinem and Bella Abzug in the formation of the National Women's Political Caucus…led in the national effort for the Equal Rights Amendment. Who believed that welfare was a trap and disrespectful of women putting her at odds with many of her social justice contemporaries. Who left a high salary government position to live with women on welfare in San Antonio and created a private training model that helped hundreds of women get a job and burn their welfare checks! And with recognition by national media – 60 Minutes - and the support of several Presidents, her program spread throughout the United States. The scope of this book is the life of Lupe Anguiano from birth until the age of 80. It was compiled from fifty exclusive recorded interviews conducted with Lupe and key people in her life by Debora Wright. Some of these interviews were conducted while traveling with Lupe to the places of her childhood as well to San Antonio, the site of her most significant life experience. These transcribed interviews were further augmented by an in-depth study of the Lupe Anguiano papers archived at the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center. Author Debora Wright uses her keen sense of history and her subject's own words to reveal Lupe Anguiano's loves, sacrifices, victories, failures and deepest thoughts.

Deep in a bayou of Louisiana, there existed a hidden plot of land. Outwardly, the beauty of those two acres was overwhelmingly peaceful. It was covered with large magnolias, ancient oaks, and low flowering shrubs. A small lake with cobalt blue water flowed gently past the shore. Although it appeared calm, this land was not a friendly place. Folklore from the area traced the tales of violence and murder back as far as the Louisiana Purchase. Yes, Thomas Jefferson may have made the "Deal of the Century" but the Gautier family obtained the strange land. Many people died over the years attempting to own and tame this raw place. Ancestors from Paris eventually inherited it. The young Gautier family fell in love with such a magical location. Dreams of building the most beautiful home in the New Orleans area enticed them. They planned everything even down to the two perfect white-blond haired children with azure blue eyes who would play in the great halls of their magnificent antebellum home. What they did not understand was the power that existed there. Once the house was built, strange things began to occur. A bond between "House" and Claire, the original owner, tied the young woman strongly to the mansion. Her children became a part of this strange alliance. Doom and death waited hidden in the shiny, white structure. Was it the land, the house, the history, or the family who created the unusual events? Innocent people die to discover the truth. ...

What would happen if animals in a zoo had a party? Mr. Green and Mr. Blue loved animals and decided it would be fun to treat the animals a party in the zoo. This is a wonderful rhyming story about how it might be if a party was held for all the animals living the zoo.It was a great day for all who were attended and even more fun for Mr. Green and Mr. Blue. This story offers an inside look at the fun to be had when the animals were free to roam and play together. It describes the activities of the different animals as they celebrated the fun and excitement with beautiful illustrations by the authors aunt, Beth Dupree, who gave each animal their own character and expressions....

A vivid depiction of a terrifying night as an infantryman on a listening post during the Vietnam War.  Two teenage soldiers, friends and fellow Detroiter's, are alone and positioned in the dense jungle three-hundred meters beyond the barbed-wired perimeter and relative safety of their firebase - their assignment as a "human early warning system", is to listen for enemy activity and forewarn the base of any potential dangers.

As they were new to the “Iron Triangle” and its reputation, little did they know that units before them lost dozens of soldiers in this nightly high-risk task and referred to those assigned as "bait for the enemy" and "sacrificial lambs".

Sitting in the pitch black tropical jungle - with visibility at less than two feet - one character's imagination takes hold throughout the agonizing night, and at times, transports him back to some of his most vivid childhood memories - innocent, but equally terrifying at the time.

As kids, we instinctively run as fast as we can to escape imaginary or perceived danger, but as soldiers, men are trained to conquer their fears and develop the confidence to stand their ground and fight. At least in theory, this is how it's supposed to work.  But when enemy soldiers surround their LP - discovery or trying to run will result in instantaneous death...nothing in life had prepared them for this moment in time!

Latest Poem

There's a space

in my chest

where I feel

the absence of

my heart - that was torn out

by you.


The space is small

and insignificant;

trivial,

worthless;

like my feelings were

to you.


It wasn't always like that;

my heart.

It was big once...

big,

and full of love

for you.


Until that day,

when I saw

the truth

behind the lies

that were a part

of you.


Now I know

I was nothing more

than a puppet

to the devil

residing

in you.
