Book excerpt: HIGH STAKES ADVENTURE AS TWO FRIENDS FIGHT THEIR WAY ACROSS A STRANGE WORLD IN A FAR-FLUNG FUTURE Sometimes, the real enemies are the friends we make along the way. An encounter with an old friend becomes tragically fatal, and Indrajit and Fix set out on a high-stakes, high-adrenaline quest across the ancient city of Kish to bring their friend back to life. At each step, the complications and the enemies alike pile up. The mysterious necromancers, the Vin Dalu priests, bind the heroes on an errand that sends them shuttling from one thieves’ guild to the next, pitting Indrajit and Fix against the deadly House of Knives and embroiling them in a plot by the giant, wasplike Kattak to take dire revenge on Kish and all its great houses. Can the heroes save their friend? Can Indrajit and Fix survive? Will Kish itself fall? At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management). Praise for D.J. Butler: “Butler follows Witchy Eye with a satisfying second tale of a magic-filled early America . . . Deep and old magic influences both places and characters, and the story is tightly focused on the determined Sarah . . . Fans of epic and alternate historical fantasy will savor this tale of witchery and intrigue.” —Publishers Weekly on Witchy Winter “For readers who love history-based fantasy, steampunk, or urban fantasy . . . this series gives the genre a new twist.” —Booklist “Excellent book. I am impressed by the creativity and the depth of the worldbuilding. Dave Butler is a great storyteller.” —Larry Correia “Witchy Eye is an intricate and imaginative alternate history with a cast of characters and quirky situations that would make a Dickens novel proud.” —Kevin J. Anderson “Butler’s fantasy is by turns sardonic and lighthearted; ghoulish shadows claw into the most remote areas and heroism bursts out of the most unlikely people. Sarah is the epitome of the downtrodden hero who refuses to give up until she gets what she needs, and her story will appeal to fantasy readers of all stripes.” —Publishers Weekly “ . . . a fascinating, grittily-flavored world of living legends. Hurry up and write the next one, Dave.” —Cat Rambo “This is enchanting! I’d love to see more.” —Mercedes Lackey “Goblin Market meets Magical Musketpunk . . . A great ride that also manages to cover some serious cultural terrain.” —Charles E. Gannon “Witchy Eye is a brilliant blend of historical acumen and imagination, a tour-de-force that is at once full of surprises and ultimately heartwarming. This is your chance to discover one of the finest new stars writing today!” —David Farland “A gritty, engrossing mash-up of history, fantasy, and magic. Desperate characters careen from plot twist to plot twist until few are left standing.” —Mario Acevedo “[A] unique alternative-history that is heavily influenced by urban and traditional fantasy and steeped in the folklore of the Appalachians . . . Fans of urban fantasy looking to take a chance on something with a twist on a historical setting may find this novel worth their time.” —Booklist
Book Synopsis Joseph Wheeler: Uniting the Blue and the Gray by : Anders M. Kinney
Download or read book Joseph Wheeler: Uniting the Blue and the Gray written by Anders M. Kinney and published by iUniverse. This book was released on 2002-06-25 with total page 254 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This text analyzes and evaluates the participation of Joseph Wheeler in the Spanish-American War. Southerners believe that Wheeler had a significant impact on the unification of the North and South during this period. Second, this historiographic writing acquaints the secondary teacher of history with the importance of the war in America's move toward imperialism. This research suggests there is a relationship between Joseph Wheeler and the healing of the Civil War wounds. This research investigates two different approaches to Wheeler's involvement in the war. The first approach involved the historical interpretation that McKinley's decision to appoint Wheeler as a Volunteer General was based on political expediency and not on ability. The second approach involved the examination of General Wheeler's primary documents and their interpretations of his participation in the war. Results of this research showed the following: (1) Joseph Wheeler's involvement in the Spanish-American War hastened the healing of North/South wounds; (2) Wheeler's involvement in the overall scheme of the war was more than token; and (3) Wheeler was perceived as an American hero by all regions after the war.

Download or read book Gray's Island written by Shirley Brock Turney. and published by AuthorHouse. This book was released on 2013-10-30 with total page 139 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book is a collection of poems and childhood memories. The poems are simple words from a simple mind. Some were written to be just plain silly in hopes of making you smile. The childhood memories are about growing up in the fifties when I spent most of my young years playing in the dirt, swimming in the creek and walking on railroad tracks. My family and I lived in a small house next door to a big, three-room school house. There was a railroad in front of our house and a creek in the back. The rest of the community was on the other side of the railroad tracks. I always say that I grew up on the wrong side of the tracks. Most memories are about Gray's Island where we spent the summers swimming in the creek and having many adventures. It was always boys chasing girls, dunking us in the creek, and having battles throwing pine cones and crabapples at each other. It was a time of innocence that could only be experienced during childhood.

Book Synopsis The Little Grey House by : Marion Ames Taggart
Download or read book The Little Grey House written by Marion Ames Taggart and published by Prabhat Prakashan. This book was released on 1904-01-01 with total page 130 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "I am going to cut that grass—try to cut it, I mean—before I'm an hour older," said Roberta Grey, drawing on an old pair of her father's dog-skin gloves with a do-or-die-in-the-attempt air that was at once inspiring and convincing. "This whole place looks like an illustrated edition of 'How Plants Grow'—Grey. We've got to cut the grass or put up a sign: To Find the House Walk Northward Through the Prairie. Signed, Sylvester Grey. Will you help, Wythie and Prue?"Oswyth, the eldest daughter, a year the senior of sixteen-year-old Roberta, looked up with her pleasant smile. "Help walk northward through the prairie, help find the house, or help cut the grass, Rob?" she asked."Help cut the grass, and the rest won't be necessary," laughed Rob. "Come on! I've borrowed Aunt Azraella's lawn-mower, though I truly believe I might as well have borrowed the cheese-scoop—that grass is too old and tough to bow down to a mere lawn-mower."Prue, being but fourteen, jumped up with alacrity to accept Rob's invitation, but Oswyth laid down her sewing and arose with a reluctant sigh—she was not fond of violent exercise, and the afternoon sun was still warm.

Book Synopsis Ethics and Children's Literature by : Claudia Mills
Download or read book Ethics and Children's Literature written by Claudia Mills and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2016-05-13 with total page 278 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Exploring the ethical questions posed by, in, and about children’s literature, this collection examines the way texts intended for children raise questions of value, depict the moral development of their characters, and call into attention shared moral presuppositions. The essays in Part I look at various past attempts at conveying moral messages to children and interrogate their underlying assumptions. What visions of childhood were conveyed by explicit attempts to cultivate specific virtues in children? What unstated cultural assumptions were expressed by growing resistance to didacticism? How should we prepare children to respond to racism in their books and in their society? Part II takes up the ethical orientations of various classic and contemporary texts, including 'prosaic ethics' in the Hundred Acre Wood, moral discernment in Narnia, ethical recognition in the distant worlds traversed by L’Engle, and virtuous transgression in recent Anglo-American children’s literature and in the emerging children’s literature of 1960s Taiwan. Part III’s essays engage in ethical criticism of arguably problematic messages about our relationship to nonhuman animals, about war, and about prejudice. The final section considers how we respond to children’s literature with ethically focused essays exploring a range of ways in which child readers and adult authorities react to children’s literature. Even as children’s literature has evolved in opposition to its origins in didactic Sunday school tracts and moralizing fables, authors, parents, librarians, and scholars remain sensitive to the values conveyed to children through the texts they choose to share with them.

Book Synopsis Haunting and Spiritual Stories by : Kenneth G. Gary
Download or read book Haunting and Spiritual Stories written by Kenneth G. Gary and published by iUniverse. This book was released on 2016-06-29 with total page 127 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book is a collection of short stories. They stand by themselves, individually, and seek to enable a scintillating excursion beyond the common four walls of life. I wish to seduce the imagination with a subtle convergence of storytelling, quietly seeping into questions of considerable moment. Some of the stories are just plain scary. Kenneth G. Gary, Author Wow! This was one of the most complex ghost stories Ive ever read. Nothing suddenly jumping out, and yelling, BOO!. Instead a tale that works on the mind, much like the movie Chinatown. Clues are introduced, taken away, then reintroduced for a conclusion that is more mental than paranormal, showing the horrors that can be found in the human mind. And like Chinatown, this story will need to be read two or three times to gather all the nuances. A true masterpiece of haunting. Not scaryterrifying. Lester K. Kloss Jr., television producer. From the blog onwww.themoonlitroad.com. Haunting and Spiritual Stories is a masterpiece, a stellar collection of superb storytelling and an instant classic. Kenneth Gary and his sister Hedy Gray, do Edgar Allen Poe and Rod Serling very, very proud. Their phenomenal stories will transfix and transport you to heights and depths of emotion and imagination never before experienced. Extraordinarily, exquisitely and eloquently crafted, Haunting Spiritual Stories is a veritable, vivid artistic feast of and for the mind, body, spirit and soul. Quite simply I have not been able to put down Haunting and Spiritual Stories and neither will you! Gary Hines, music director/producer, Grammy award-winning Sounds of Blackness Where Once upon a Time is far more than just a story! Bill Berry Jr., publisher /CEO aaduna Inc.
