Wilder, Gene. Wilder has written a short, sweet novel about love and survival during World War II. If you are a fan of historical fiction with a happy ending, this book is for you. Kabatchnik, Amnon. A niche resource with genre appeal. While the title will likely find use in academic theater collections, mystery theater buffs will also enjoy it. Wecker, Helene.

Full of quirky characters and philosophical and religious musings, this fascinating blend of historical fiction and Jewish and Arab folklore excels when it comes to its gorgeous descriptions and the intriguing flashbacks to the jinni's earlier life, but it lacks some relationship development to ground Chava and Ahmed's romance. Overall this original and fresh story will attract fans of historical fantasy or folktales.

Maxwell, Abi. Maxwell's writing has a whispery, brooding, atmospheric feel that conveys Alice's fragility while capturing both the lushness of the region and its claustrophobic effect on Alice. Literary fiction readers will be moved by this quiet yet compelling work. Kane, Jessica Frances.obasejyqih.tk
The Perilous West : Seven Amazing Explorers and the Founding of the Oregon Trail - conlauguterleo.ga
The stories in this collection have an appeal reminiscent of Chekhov's plays. Kane's characters seldom say what they mean or mean what they say. Instead, we come to know them from the familiar ways they present themselves within the family constellation. Spude, Catherine Holder. Readers interested in Western U.
Seven Amazing Explorers and the Founding of the Oregon Trail
There is little previously written on this topic, and though the coverage is less than well rounded, literary scholars and readers interested in Gaiman's writing, feminism, or gender studies will find this collection valuable. I am in awe of Lewis and Clark who conducted such a magnificant exploration with its only loss of life being early on the Missouri due to an apendecitis.
Upon seeing the reproduction of this fort, so very small, I sat down and cried. It turns out that expeditions west that followed Lewis and Clark were mostly disasters in greed, ego, mismanagement, lack of planning and falure of following known predisessors, not to mention perilous encounters with the Indians who by this time had figured out that white men were not to be trusted. The book's point is two fold: although Lewis and Clark is famous for its East-West journey, thier actual route was unfollowable.
Routes much farther south discovered by the random fur trappers that followed became the Oregon Trail. It is these men, many who did not survive their adventures, that actually opened up the west to wagon trains. The second point is of Sacagewea's fame, but of Marie Dorian's obscurity. She also crisscrossed the rocky mountains with two young sons, as wife of a French Fur Trapper. It is probable that these two woman met in winter encapments.
Although much of this story is grim, the energetic robustnes of these men inspires awe. So often a man and his buddies would have their beaver firs in hand and be ready to return to wives, sons, daughers, and homes but would encounter another energetic well financed group of fur trappers heading west, and the eastward bound men, would forego home once again to return to thier lives in the wildness.
Many of them never saw home.
This is a scholarly text whose strength lies in the original writings. Still the authors obvious enjoyment of these stories of these lives gives the story a optimism that otherwize could have been very grim. Feb 24, Jon rated it liked it. By reading this book I learned a lot about the exploration of the west.
Although the story of Lewis and Clark is well-known the tales of those who went west in the next few years is less famous.
This book deals with the various expeditions right after Lewis Clark. People wanted to go to the remote areas in search of beaver hides and some of the participants were veterans of the Lewis and Clark expedition.
