Summary

An anthology of traditional and contemporary western short stories where the characters are lain bare.

 
Feel the pain of a young Japanese girl who comes home from an internment camp after World War II and learns it’s easier to go with the flow than to fight the current.



 
Struggle with an expectant mother on the cold winter prairie while she waits for her husband to come home from a hunting trip.



 
Journey with a young woman to the Four Corners as she tries to connect with her Navajo ancestors.



 
Try not to believe in the superstition of the blue moon—if one dies, three more will follow.



 
Know that one way or another, life will change inalterably that day.



 
Walk in the footsteps of an old cowpoke who thought he made the deal of a lifetime.



 
Suffer the torments of a young lady who wants desperately to marry but seems destined never to wed.



 
Walk the wild western paths and run from unimaginable dangers.



 
Choose between an unhappy life of luxury or a happy life of simplicity.



 
Nine female authors pen western tales that you’ll want to retell around a campfire. These aren’t your granddaddy’s westerns. They’re the next generation’s, and they’re darn good.

    This is volume V of “The Writings of Henry David Thoreau”. Entitled “Excursions, and Poems”, it is primarily a collection of poetry and travelling accounts, although also included are a number of his translations. This book will appeal to all lovers of poetry and nature writing, and it is not to be missed by fans and collectors of Thoreau's wonderful work. Henry David Thoreau (1817 – 1862) was an American poet, philosopher, essayist, abolitionist, naturalist, development critic, and historian. He was also a leading figure in Transcendentalism, and is best known for his book “Walden”, a treatise on simple living in a natural environment. Other notable works by this author include: “The Landlord” (1843), “Reform and the Reformers” (1846–48), and “Slavery in Massachusetts” (1854). Contents include: “A Yankee In Canada”, “Natural History Of Massachusetts”, “A Walk To Wachusett”, “The Landlord”, “A Winter Walk The Succession Of Forest Trees”, “Walking”, “Autumnal Tints”, “Nature”, “Inspiration”, “The Aurora Of Guido”, “To The Maiden In The East”, “To My Brother”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.

    Ella Hickson's version of J.M. Barrie's much-loved story puts the character of Wendy firmly centre stage, in an adaptation that is refreshingly modern but never loses the charm of the original. 
     
    Winter 1908. Snow is falling across London. Wendy Darling and her brothers sleep peacefully in their bedroom, as their parents bicker downstairs. In a sudden flurry of snow their window blows open, and into their lives tumbles a mischievous boy called Peter, followed by a fractious fairy called Tink. 
     
    With the aid of a little fairy dust, Wendy agrees to fly with Peter to Neverland, seeing not only the promise of an awfully big adventure, but also the chance to rediscover the key to her parents' lost happiness. Once there, she will give the Lost Boys a run for their money, defeat Captain Hook and his pirate crew, and ultimately, learn what it means to grow up. 
     
    Commissioned by the Royal Shakespeare Company, Ella Hickson's Wendy & Peter Pan premiered at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon, in December 2013. It was revived by the RSC in 2015. 
     
    The play will suit any theatre company or youth group looking to stage a classic tale, full of magic, adventure and strong female roles.

    William Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon in late April 1565 and baptised there on 26th April. He was one of eight children.  Little is known about his life but what is evident is the enormous contribution he has made to world literature.  His writing was progressive, magnificent in scope and breathtaking in execution.  His plays and sonnets helped enable the English language to speak with a voice unmatched by any other.  William Shakespeare died on April 23rd 1616, survived by his wife and two daughters. He was buried two days after his death in the chancel of the Holy Trinity Church. The epitaph on the slab which covers his grave includes the following passage, Good friend, for Jesus’s sake forbear, To dig the dust enclosed here. Blessed me the man that spares these stones, And cursed be he that moves my bones. Here we publish his tragedy from 1605 'King Lear'.
