Under the Influence of Classic Country

 The music today known as "classic country" originated in the South in the 1920s. Influenced by blues and folk music, instrumentation was typically guitar, fiddle, bass, steel guitar, and later drums, with lyrics and arrangements rooted in tradition. This book covers some of the genre's legendary artists, from its heyday in the 1940s to its decline in the early 1970s. Revivalists keeping the traditions alive in the 21st century are also explored. Drawing on original interviews with artists and their associates, biographical profiles chronicle their lives on the road and in the studio, as well as the stories behind popular songs. Thirty-six performers are profiled, including Ernest Tubb, Ray Price, Loretta Lynn, Bill Anderson, Faron Young, Mickey Gilley, Freddie Hart, Jerry Reed, Charley Pride, David Frizzell, The Cactus Blossoms, The Secret Sisters, and Pokey LaFarge.

Snapshots 3

In Snapshots 3, Maraj carries the reader into the recesses of his mind in his search for identity. Trapped between two worlds, both physically (Canada and Trinidad) and ideologically (Hinduism and Catholicism), Maraj attempts to reconcile the conflicts. Not only is Snapshots 3 an excellent read, but it could also be a philosophical teaching “textbook” for teachers. It reminds teachers how important words and attitudes are—teachers can speak life into students and inspire them, or they can destroy them with one small slip of the tongue. In Snapshots 3, we see Frank Maraj, the professional teacher, from the first days of his teaching career to the last days. His anecdotes highlight the joys and trials of teaching with reflective insights that challenge the philosophical underpinnings of the educational system.

Witchcraft

VENTURA, Calif. – Fairytales continue to enchant both the young and old. This enduring tradition lingers in the present day through countless movies and literary works. In his new novel, Witchcraft, author Jayme Alan Toomey spins a darkly riveting story out of the the timeless appeal of fairytales. This modern retelling follows a family, the Dooms, on vacation. Jess wants to try something different for once and so they opt for a rural community rife with local legends, cults and an otherworldly atmosphere. Jess’ boyfriend, Jamie, comes along with them and they eagerly enjoy the respite from their lives in the urban jungle. Unbeknownst to them all, there is more to the peace and quiet than meets the eye. Dark forces are at work beneath the town’s idyll and what started as a fun getaway quickly became a deadly game involving the sacrifice of innocent blood, witchcraft and the resurgence of an evil from an all too familiar fairytale. Suffused with magic and menace, Witchcraft is a richly atmospheric novel that will enthrall fans of fairytales and fairytale retellings and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadowy realms of lore.
