Book Description
Here is a book for the whole family that will stir the emotions and fill the heart of all animal lovers--an anthology of animal stories that draws on tales and stories from all over the world and across the centuries. There are myths and legends first told thousand of years ago from Inuit,
Crow, Gaelic, Modoc, Norse, and other cultures that explain "How Raven Brought the Light" or how Coyote, after making the world, called a council of animals to help him make man. There are classic fables, such as "The Tortoise and the Hare" and "Brer Rabbit and the Tar Baby." There are also animal

Book Review
Ready to meet the aliens? This collection of bug-eyed monster stories will introduce you to extraterrestrials both nasty and nice, ugly and elegant. Some of the world's best science fiction writers are represented--you'll find contributions from Arthur C. Clarke, Avram Davidson, Philip K. Dick, Harry Harrison, and A.E. van Vogt, among others. If you think all aliens are frail little green men with big eyes and bald heads, think again. Some of the fantastic creatures in these stories are hideous beasts, some are hypnotically fascinating, and some you can't see at all. But every alien in the book can teach you something about what it means to be human. As editor Dennis Pepper writes in his introduction, "Aliens, however they may be presented, are aspects of ourselves."

This collection is designed for young adults, with...

Lives of the Artists: Stories
Dennis Vannatta

Book Description
Throughout this collection, Dennis Vannatta combines artwork and storytelling to distill them into a core matter—the human comedy. He also peppers in his authorial persona by inserting anachronistic forays into the Vietnam War, thus pushing storytelling’s envelope a step further. His stories run from the first cave artist and cave storyteller (who must tell a captivating tale or be killed by hunters), through a modern aluminum siding salesman whose amorous obsession for an art historian traps him on an academic panel discussing the Mona Lisa. This salesman must also weave a story before the panel of strangers or lose—not his life certainly, but all self-respect. Both caveman and salesman inject emotion into their stories, to find redemption. Just so, Vannatta’s authorial persona injects Vietnam...


Castles and Fortified Cities of Medieval Europe: An Illustrated History
Jean-Denis G. Lepage

May 2001
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
During the Middle Ages, castles and other fortified buildings were a common feature of the European landscape. As central powers rose and fell, the insecurity of the time inspired a revival of fortification techniques first introduced in the Roman Empire. Despite limitations in construction techniques and manpower, medieval fortifications were continuously adapted to meet new political circumstances and weapons technology. Here is an illustrated guide to the architecture of medieval fortifications, from the first castles to the fortified cities of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. In hundreds of detailed and thoroughly researched pen-and-ink drawings, artist Jean-Denis G.G. Lepage introduces the reader to a heterogeneous group of buildings whose unique characteristics show the development and diversity of European...
