Description:
The author, one of Scotland's leading historians, provides the first comprehensive account of what happened to the thousands of people who, over the last 300 years, left Skye and other parts of the Scottish Highlands to make new lives in the United States and Canada. The product both of painstaking research and extensive travels in North America, this is the definitive story of the Highland impact on the New World, the story of how soldiers, explorers, guerrilla fighters, fur traders, lumberjacks and pioneer settlers from the north of Scotland found, on the other side of the Atlantic, freedoms and opportunities denied to them at home.

Description:
This novel open with one of the most memorable encounters in fiction: Gwendolen Harleth, alluring yet unsettling, is poised at the roulette-table in Leubronn, observed by Daniel Deronda, a young man groomed in the finest tradition of the English upper classes, and now searching for his path in life.While Gwendolen becomes trapped in an oppressive marriage, a series of dramatic encounters draws Deronda into ever deeper sympathy with Jewish aspirations to cultural and natural identity. Remote as Gwendolen's country-house world may seem from the world of Mirah, the lost daughter, and Mordecai, the visionary,the author weaves these strands of her plot intimately together, daring the reader to open their eyes to areas experience wholly new to the Victorian novel. Notes, 850 pages.

Description:
In 1985, the author fell victim to a crippling and almost suicidal depression, the same illness that took the lives of Randall Jarrell and Primo Levi, Vincent Van Gogh, and Virginia Woolf. That he survived this decent into madness is something of a miracle. That he manages to convey its tortuous progression and his eventual recovery with such candor and precision makes this book a rare feat of literature, one that will arouse a shock of recognition even in those readers who have been spared the suffering it describes. 86 pages.

Description:
Sound clean copy in DJ. During a meteoric career that spanned from 1825 to 1834, David Douglas made the first systematic collections of flora and fauna over many parts of the greater Pacific Northwest. Despite his early death, colleagues in Great Britain attached the Douglas name to more than 80 different species, including the iconic timber tree of the region. David Douglas, a Naturalist at Work is a colorfully illustrated collection of essays that examines various aspects of Douglas's career, demonstrating the connections between his work in the Pacific Northwest of the 19th century and the place we know today. From the Columbia River's perilous bar to luminous blooms of mountain wildflowers; from ever-changing frontiers of technology to the quiet seasonal rhythms of tribal families gathering roots, these essays collapse time to shed light on people and landscapes.

Description:
How did an obscure rabbi and a minor prophet from a backwater of the Roman Empire come to be considered the central figure in Western civilization? Did his influence in fact change the world? With his remarkable ability to bring figures of the past to life in a rounded full-bodied waay, Cahil shows Jesus from his birth to his execution through the eyes of those who knew him and in the context of his time. Here is Jesus the loving friend, itinerant preacher, and quiet revolutionary, whose words and actions inspired his followers to journey throughout the Roman world and speak the truth he instilled.

Description:
It is 1933. Jessica and Jane have been living together for six months. They are devoted friends - or are they? Jessica, with her heavy dark charm, has a vicious way with words and a temperament that inclines towards violence. She loves her friend with the cruelty of total possessiveness. Jane, with her geometric lines and blonde hair, is perfect - but for the thread of a scar by her mouth. She is rich and silly and drinks rather too many brandy-and-sodas. Their friend Sylvester regrets that Jane should be 'loved and bullied and perhaps even murdered by that frightful Jessica,' but decides it's none of his business. However, when the Irish gentleman George Playfair meets Jan he decides it's very much his business. He entices her to Ireland where the battle begins. It will be a fight to the death. But who will win?

Description:
If we read the Bible literally, cautions Fox, we miss the eternal power and personal relevance found in its symbols, allegories, and parables. 'Whether you realize it or not,' he writes, 'you are on every page from Genesis to Revelation.' Fox shows how to read dramatic biblical stories as symbolic diagrams for living that can 'show you how to overcome difficulties and problems, and how to give expression to the deep aspirations that lie hidden in your soul.'This power to reveal, inspire, and guide makes the Bible's teachings adaptable to everyone at every stage of spiritual development
