The Spell

The Spell PDF Author: Tom Clark
Publisher: David R. Godine Publisher
ISBN: 9781574231236
Category : Poetry
Languages : en
Pages : 205

Book Description
The hero of this American gothic nightmare comedy is a messianic hillbilly prophet whose onetime local glory as a high school football star gives way to a career of outlaw questing. With the mysterious disappearance of his main squeeze--an edgy, spooky honkytonk chanteuse--that quest becomes increasingly deviant and deranged. The landscape through which the earnest, confused seeker chivvies his banged-up black pickup truck is a magical and timeless one, its dense woods and dark lakes charged with a heavy burden of industrially-produced hexes, curses and toxic spells. Mechanical animals and changeling species, subjected to continual torments of re-programming, run half wild through a menacing backwater of poisonous tarns, vicious factories and slimy swamps. Elders of strange religions exercise insidious, unpleasant influences, while witches in Secret Shacks broadcast bad vibrations that produce genetic alterations. In this mutated vision of reality, there is a general spell under which everybody is bound. The Spell: A Romance is a haunting and funny poetic novel about the survival of medieval chivalric codes--and their dangerous implications--in a toxic-shocked modern world. It is also a tale of love and quest, betrayal and revenge. The mysterious protean voice of the book slips back and forth from comic narrative prose to spare lyrical poetry as it becomes the voice of legend: allusive, expansive, suspending disbelief.

Culp's Hill at Gettysburg

Culp's Hill at Gettysburg PDF Author: John M. Archer
Publisher: Savas Publishing
ISBN: 1940669243
Category : History
Languages : en
Pages : 156

Book Description
The heavily wooded slopes of CulpÕs Hill do not easily lend themselves to visions of long, gallant lines of charging infantry as do other areas on the battlefield at Gettysburg. But the regimental monuments and traces of breastworks that line the slopes of CulpÕs Hill bear silent testament to a hellish conflict: no other spot at Gettysburg would see such a sustained period of brutal combat as when North and South vied for this ground. The reader is invited to tour this seldom explored segment of the battle using maps, photos, and first-hand accounts to help understand the unique character of the struggle for CulpÕs Hill and the men who fought for its slopes.

Passage to Juneau

Passage to Juneau PDF Author: Jonathan Raban
Publisher: Vintage
ISBN: 0307797260
Category : Travel
Languages : en
Pages : 448

Book Description
With the same rigorous observation (natural and social), invigorating stylishness, and encyclopedic learning that he brought to his National Book Award-winning Bad Land, Jonathan Raban conducts readers along the Inside Passage from Seattle to Juneau. The physical distance is 1,000 miles of difficult-and often treacherous-water, which Raban navigates solo in a 35-foot sailboat. But Passage to Juneau also traverses a gulf of centuries and cultures: the immeasurable divide between the Northwest's Indians and its first European explorers-- between its embattled fishermen and loggers and its pampered new class. Along the way, Raban offers captivating discourses on art, philosophy, and navigation and an unsparing narrative of personal loss.

As Siuntla flees with her child and struggles to protect him from Elders who would steal him away, Siuntla faces romantic love, the sting of jealousy,the heart-break of betrayal, and concern for the children she is raising...all the while trying to discover who—or what—she really is.

Field Guide to the Birds of East Asia

Field Guide to the Birds of East Asia PDF Author: Mark Brazil
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing
ISBN: 1472975928
Category : Nature
Languages : en
Pages : 528

Book Description
This is the first single volume guide ever devoted to the eastern Asian avifauna. The eastern Asian region, centring especially on the major islands off the continental coast (including Japan and Taiwan) and the immediately adjacent areas of the Asian continent from Kamchatka in the north and including the Korean Peninsula are an important centre of endemism. Birds endemic to this region include representatives of many of the major families, from the world's largest eagle - Steller's Sea Eagle - to the tiny Formosan Firecrest. The east Asian continental coast and the offshore islands also form one of the world's major international bird migration routes, especially for waterfowl, shorebirds and raptors, while the east Asian continental mainland itself is home to a wide range of species little known to western ornithologists such as Scaly-sided Merganser, Oriental Stork and Mugimaki Flycatcher. The guide features the most up-to-date text available, which, in conjunction with extensive colour plates throughout, facilitates the field identification of all of the species known from the region. Colour distribution maps enhance the text by providing a visual analysis of the summer, winter and migratory ranges of all species.
