Cecil G. Foster
September 2001
Book Description
Cecil G. Foster was born in Midland County, Michigan, on August 30, 1925. He endured economic and emotional hardship during his youth, living in a poor environment, losing his mother before he was six, and being separated from his brothers, sisters, and father. He joined the Army Air Force in 1943 as a private at the height of the World War II buildup and retired in 1975 as a lieutenant colonel.

Michael Schut
April 1999
At The Center, St. Placid Priory Newsletter
This is a wonderful collection of writings from diverse voices - some quite surprising - exploring voluntary simplicity as a path to wholeness and abundance and compassion. Practical, prayerful, fun.

The Art of Inquiry: Questioning Strategies for K-6 Classrooms
Nancy Lee Cecil
March 1995

Johanna Spyri
March 1995
Book Review
Johanna Spyri's classic story of a young orphan sent to live with her grumpy grandfather in the Swiss Alps is retold in it's entirety in this beautifully bound hardcover edition. Heidi has charmed and intrigued readers since it's original publication in 1880. Much more than a children's story, the narrative is also a lesson on the precarious nature of freedom, a luxury too often taken for granted. Heidi almost loses her liberty as she is ripped away from the tranquility of the mountains to tend to a sick cousin in the city. Happily, all's well that ends well, and the reader is left with only warm, fuzzy thoughts. Spryi's story will never grow wearisome--and this is a very appealing edition. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
