Jean Whalen’s colorful life spans over nine decades—and nine children. She spent the years of her childhood struggling through the Depression in the American Midwest. She lived through the terror of World War II and eventually saw the dawn of a new century. Through it all, she chronicled her life in verse. The Poetry of Jean Whalen: Book One gives voice to the timeless human truths of perseverance, faith, and love. “The Cow” is a little girl’s observation of the big world from her view on the farm. She entertains her young life as a romantic in “Tall Trouble.” Gentle humor brings grace to “The Hunter” and “A Little Mixed Up.” Whalen embraces life’s lighter moments, despite the darkness that lingers along its edges. Her words bring inspiration to the lost and despairing, and pain is captured by beauty. Whalen has spent her life encouraging and inspiring those around her, driven by a desire to contribute to the lives of others. Her ninety years of experience speak volumes through poetry and bring effervescent light to the dark.

A volume of poignant recollections by one of Canada's most celebrated poets, Small Beneath the Sky is a tender, unsparing portrait of a family and a place. Lorna Crozier vividly depicts her hometown of Swift Current, with its one main street, two high schools, and three beer parlors—where her father spent most of his evenings. She writes unflinchingly about the grief and shame caused by poverty and alcoholism. At the heart of the book is Crozier's fierce love for her mother, Peggy. The narratives of daily life—sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking—are interspersed with prose poems. Lorna Crozier approaches the past with a tactile sense of discovery, tracing her beginnings with a poet's precision and an open heart. Also available in hardcover.

Summary: While visiting Rome, world-renowned photographer Gregory Crewdson was invited to tour the legendary Italian film studio Cinecittà, where directors such as Federico Fellini and Roberto Rossellini shot their iconic works. He found the elaborate film sets had fallen into ruin and was captivated by their decaying beauty. He knew immediately that he had found his next project. While Crewdson's earlier series were enormously elaborate and required massive production crews, custom-built sound stages, and hired actors, he returned to Rome with only a small team and worked mostly with available lighting to create haunting black-and-white portraits of crumbling façades and deserted streets. However, all this does not really indicate a break with his earlier series, for the dramatic subtext so often found in his photographs, the uncanny feeling that they bring the past back to life, remains.

Stories Told in Whispers tells of a slave named Bob and his free wife. It's a story of love, tradition, and the great moral testing of America and the system of slavery. Bob is a Baptist preacher and a horse trainer living on the plantation called White Oak. He is owned by Henry Koger. In 1810, after marrying Marie, they were forced to become runaways. Alone and vulnerable, their difficult journey to Ohio leads them through the rugged mountains of Kentucky and Virginia. The journey tests their strength, their courage, and their faith. Along the way they discover a loosely knit organization of people who are willing to offer aid and share the risks for the cause of freedom. The coalition is made up of the many Christians who operate the shadowy Underground Railroad. This book gives you a taste of the antebellum south, as well as glimmer of the grass root forces that formed the America of today. It is testimony to the many unsung heroes of the elusive Freedom Train and its ghostly riders.

Ever since almost exactly a hundred years ago the Grimms produced their Fairy Tale Book, folk-lorists have been engaged in making similar collections for all the other countries of Europe, outside Germany, till there is scarcely a nook or a corner in the whole continent that has not been ransacked for these products of the popular fancy. The Grimms themselves and most of their followers have pointed out the similarity or, one might even say, the identity of plot and incident of many of these tales throughout the European Folk-Lore field. Von Hahn, when collecting the Greek and Albanian Fairy Tales in 1864, brought together these common formul of the European Folk-Tale. These were supplemented by Mr. S. Baring-Gould in 1868, and I myself in 1892 contributed an even fuller list to the Hand Book of Folk-Lore. Most, if not all of these formul, have been found in all the countries of Europe where folk-tales have been collected. In 1893 Miss M. Roalfe Cox brought together, in a volume of the Folk-Lore Society, no less than 345 variants of Cinderella and kindred stories showing how widespread this particular formula was throughout Europe and how substantially identical the various incidents as reproduced in each particular country. It has occurred to me that it would be of great interest and, for folk-lore purposes, of no little importance, to bring together these common Folk-Tales of Europe, retold in such a way as to bring out the original form from which all the variants were derived. I am, of course, aware of the difficulty and hazardous nature of such a proceeding; yet it is fundamentally the same as that by which scholars are accustomed to restore the Ur-text from the variants of different families of MSS. and still more similar to the process by which Higher Critics attempt to restore the original narratives of Holy Writ. Every one who has had to tell fairy tales to children will appreciate the conservative tendencies of the child mind; every time you vary an incident the children will cry out, That was not the way you told us before.? The Folk-Tale collections can therefore be assumed to retain the original readings with as much fidelity as most MSS. That there was such an original rendering eminating from a single folk artist no serious student of Miss Cox's volume can well doubt. When one finds practically the same ?tags? of verse in such different dialects as Danish and Romaic, German and Italian, one cannot imagine that these sprang up independently in Denmark, Greece, Germany, and Florence. The same phenomenon is shown in another field of Folk-Lore where, as the late Mr. Newell showed, the same rhymes are used to brighten up the same children?s games in Barcelona and in Boston; one cannot imagine them springing up independently in both places. So, too, when the same incidents of a fairy tale follow in the same artistic concatenation in Scotland, and in Sicily, in Brittany, and in Albania, one cannot but assume that the original form of the story was hit upon by one definite literary artist among the folk. What I have attempted to do in this book is to restore the original form, which by a sort of international selection has spread throughout all the European folks.

The beautiful Averil is heir to the Duchy of Quitaine, in the Kingdom of Lys. She is a powerful mage, trained by the Ladies of the Isle, but when her father calls her home to take up her duties, she must leave that life behind. In her city of Fontevrai, she meets Gereint, raised as a common villager but greatly gifted in magic, a novice of the magical order of the Knights of the Rose. The Knights and their sister order, the Ladies of the Isle, defend a great secret: the means and location of the Serpent's imprisonment a thousand years ago by the Young God in whose name their order was founded. Quitaine is under subtle attack by the King of Lys, who has secretly become an adept of the hidden order of the Serpent, and he will let nothing and no one stand in the way of his quest to discover how to free his God. But the Knights of the Rose, and the Ladies of the Isle believe that if the Serpent is freed, the world will be enslaved to chaos: humanity will destroy itself, and all that man has made will be corrupted. The War of the Rose and Serpent has begun again, after a thousand years. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
