Splendid Mountains

?Most of the less well known early explorers of the Sierra Nevada were private individuals, rather than government expeditions or cartographers. The more literate ones had accounts of their achievements, adventures, and mishaps published in newspapers and journals, often accompanying them with photographs, drawings, and hand-drawn maps. Most of these wilderness travelers have been immortalized by having their names placed on mountains, lakes, and streams: Frank Dusy; Wales, Wallace, and Wright; Theodore S. Solomons; Bolton C. and Lucy Brown; Joseph N. and Marion LeConte; Lt.Nathaniel Fish McClure; Cornelius Beach Bradley; James E. Hutchinson. These are foremost among the few who pioneered the routes that are followed by so many at the present day.

Annalia s Simply Splendid Flight

Splendid, simply splendid,” the sorcerer said as he emerged from nothingness. He took up quarters on a monstrous tree root and dusted his robe free from debris. “What's so splendid? Why did you leave me alone?

Annalia s Simply Splendid Flight

Annalia envisioned her life as paradise. Everything was heavenly until three furies stormed onto her lane, center stage. They nettled her and got under her skin. Ruled by monsters and fear, the girl's life was shrouded in darkness. Who has not walked in Annalia's shoes? All children of life, regardless of age, encounter beastly characters and thorny obstacles. Listening to the spiritual guide who whispered wisdom of the ages, Annalia learned lessons to break free from dark night and move into a brighter day. Do you know the role thoughts, emotions, and free will play in conquering life's demons? Annalia does. Are you able to translate universal signs that pop up giving direction along the way? Do you know how personal resources might be used to weed a beastly mess from life's plot? How they might uproot a dream? Annalia learned how by mastering divine magic. Can your spirit soar aligned with its Star Code even when gravity-worshippers attempt to weigh it down? Can you shine your HeartLight to illuminate the way out of a nightmare? Annalia can. This self-health novel provides life lessons taught by Lazy Lapis, the Dream Magician. Return with Annalia and her guide to The Forest of Perpetual Night that lies on the far edge of Tabankhu. Master life's craft and turn in an inspired performance daily. Learn to recognize horrible happenings-black holes, shifting landscapes, bottomless abysses, physical afflictions, sinkholes of despair and dead-end mazes- for what they are, life tests, nothing more or less. Refuse to wander through life as a Sleepy Noggin. When you show that you know what you know, you will be cast as a star in a living dream. If a young girl can star in life, you can, too. (A reader's guide is included as an appendix.)

A Splendid Future

Alfred is a normal lad who lives in his very normal tomorrow, maybe our tomorrow. A world that has changed much, perhaps without really changing. Looking for social redemption, he accepts a proposal that will take him far from home for a long time. When he comes back, he slowly realizes that things aren't exactly the way he expected them. A surprise that, in spite of all, will urge him to look for answers.Alfred is a normal lad who lives in his very normal tomorrow where technology has made giant strides, even if these strides have been used by the few who have then distributed it to the many like crumbs to the hungry. A society where much has changed, perhaps without really changing. Alfred, like every lad, like every man, like every human being hopes, at least for himself, for a better future and that's what he pursues with tenacity and conviction, devoured by anguish and desire for redemption. When, in this uncertain future, he's offered such a chance, he'll seize it, embracing every single aspect and consequence, such is his desire to believe in it with all of himself. But evry medal, time out of mind, always has two sides, and Alfred will have to decide whether or not to face the side that's hidden from him, embarking on a quest and investigation, fighting against time that he has no more, or to accept things as they are and convince himself that everything is actually normal.

George Russell, 56, and Cheryl Baker, 31, are involved in an unusual nonsexual relationship. Twice-divorced, he's on friendly terms with his second wife, Kelly, the adoptive mother of his 34-year-old son, and gun-shy of a third marital attempt. And Cheryl, a former 21-year-old college grad from Muncie, Indiana, had bad experiences with male students that have soured her on men in her age group. George belongs to a New York creative group whose members are deeply involved with each other, which includes him in a purely sexual relationship with Penny, a successful painter who also has a popular "Sex-Without-Fear" TV show. Then, when Cheryl falls in love with Bill, although she and George now have their own sex-without-fear relationship—it takes an ingenious decision to solve her problem!

Quicklet on Khaled Hosseini s A Thousand Splendid Suns

ABOUT THE BOOK “One could not count the moons that shimmer on her roofs, or the thousand splendid suns that hide behind her walls.” A Thousand Splendid Suns is a gripping story of two women learning how to survive under the thumb of an abusive husband in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan. Mariam grew up as the illegitimate daughter of a Herat businessman raised by a bitter and depressed single mother. Laila was the beloved daughter of a Kabul man who believed in a world where men and women are equal. When the circumstances of war bring them together under the roof of the cruel Rasheed, their only comfort is in the special bond of sisterhood they form during years cut off from the rest of the world. Khaled Hosseini weaves a tale of love and survival that begins during the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan in the 1970s and ends with the American invasion and occupation in the early 2000s. Although ultimately a story of love and friendship, A Thousand Splendid Suns reveals the devastating affects of war on those caught in the middle – particularly women and children. MEET THE AUTHOR Lacey Kohlmoos is a writer, traveler and lover of the arts. After graduating from the University of Virginia with a BA in Drama & the Studies of Women and Gender, the only thing she knew for sure was that she wanted to travel. So, she embarked on a 10 1⁄2 month round-the-world trip, then traveled to Costa Rica where she spent one year teaching elementary school English in a small mountain town. Throughout her two years of travels, she's always kept a blog. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK At first, Rasheed treats Mariam well, albeit distantly. But, after she has multiple miscarriages he turns abusive. It becomes clear to Mariam that the only reason Rasheed married her was so that she would bear him sons. When she does not give her husband what he wants, Mariam finds herself trapped in a home with a man who believes that husbands should always keep a good handle on their wives. Living just down the street from Mariam and Rasheed is a young Kabul beauty – Laila. Though largely ignored by her mother, she is doted upon by her father Hakim who believes that women should be treated as equals to men. But, the reality of living in Soviet-occupied Afghanistan comes crashing down on Laila when her two older brothers are killed while fighting with the Mujaheedan. She finds comfort in Tariq, a slightly older neighborhood boy who protects Laila from bullies and other harm... Buy a copy to keep reading!

A Splendid Wickedness and Other Essays

"Incisive essays from a master wordsmith" Why has Don Juan become so passe of late? What s the trouble with Ayn Rand? How did the Doge of Venice come to venerate the counterfeit remains of Siddhartha Gautama? Why does the Bentley family s collection of ancestral relics include a bronzed human thumb? And what, exactly, is the story behind Great Uncle Aloysius, who was born a Quaker but died a pagan? This collection of occasional essays brings us David Bentley Hart at his finest: startlingly clear and deliciously abstruse, coolly wise and burningly witty, fresh and timeless, mystical and concrete often all at once. Hart s incisive blend of philosophy, moral theology, and cultural criticism, together with his flair for both the well-told story and the well-turned phrase, is sure to delight. "
