Holding Up the Earth by , Summary

It has been eight years since Hope’s mom died in a car accident. Eight years of shuffling from foster home to foster home. Eight years of trying to hold on to the memories that tether her to her mother. Now Sarah, Hope’s newest foster mom, has taken her from Minneapolis to spend the summer on the Nebraska farm where Sarah grew up. Hope is set adrift, anchored only by her ever-present and memory-heavy backpack. Accustomed to the clamor of city life, Hope is at first unsettled by the silence that descends over the farm each night. But listening deeply, she begins to hear the quiet: the crickets’ chirp, the windsong, the steady in and out of her own breath. Soon the silence is replaced by voices, like echoes sounding across time — the voices of girls who inhabited the old farmhouse before her. Reluctantly, Hope begins to stretch down roots in the earth and accept this new family as her own.

The Story of the Amulet by E. Nesbit Summary

THE THIRD BOOK IN THE PSAMMEAD TRILOGY, FOLLOWING FIVE CHILDREN AND IT AND THE PHOENIX AND THE CARPET 'I love her books, particularly the Five Children and It sequence' Neil Gaiman At a pet shop near the British Museum, the children discover their old friend the Psammead, caged and miserable. The children pool their pocket money together to rescue it, and in gratitude, the Psammead tells them to buy an amulet - or rather, half an amulet. Incomplete, the magic charm can take them to any place and time to search for its other half; but when the amulet is whole, it will have the power to give the children their hearts' desire. In their quest, the children visit ancient Egypt, Atlantis and Babylon - they even meet Julius Caesar. But their adventures are not without danger: if they lose the amulet on their travels they will be lost in time, unable to ever return home. 'Endlessly surprising and inventive ... Edith Nesbit opened the door in the magic wardrobe, pointed the way to platform nine and three quarters. She even had a hand in building the Tardis. And these are among her minor achievements.

The Earth Baseball Tourney: an Invitational to Disaster by Claude Walker Summary

When water magnate (and owner of the minor league Springfield WaterDogs) Reynolds Beckert learns he has a short time to live, his dream of extending the reach of baseball becomes a holy mission. Determined to find the next Clemente in a place like Fiji, he organizes a tournament with the largest purse in history and a lottery which will make some lucky fans billionaires. His innocent aim - to share the game he loves with the whole world - goes horribly wrong when it is threatened by ninjas, flaming flamingos, anti-baseball protests, echo clones and killer cellphones. Greed and nationalist zeal take the inaugural Earth Baseball Tourney - and humanity - to the apocalyptic brink. A dark comedy about baseballs globalization and technology-run-amok, The Earth Baseball Tourney: An Invitational to Disaster is an ode to the greatest game ever devised. The lyrical tale reminds fans of their first game with their grandfather, aromas of grilled onions and fresh-cut grass, and that distinctive crack of the bat.

Opening a Mountain by Steven Heine Summary

With the growing popularity of Zen Buddhism in the West, virtually everyone knows, or thinks they know, what a koan is: a brief and baffling question or statement that cannot be solved by the logical mind and which, after sustained concentration, can lead to sudden enlightenment. But the truth about koans is both simpler--and more complicated--than this. In Opening a Mountain, Steven Heine shows that koans, and the questions we associate with them--such as "What is the sound of one hand clapping?"--are embedded in larger narratives and belong to an ancient Buddhist tradition of "encounter dialogues." These dialogues feature dramatic and often inscrutable contests between masters and disciples, or between masters and an array of natural and supernatural forces: rouge priests, "wild foxes," hermits, wizards, shapeshifters, magical animals, and dangerous women. To establish a new monastery, "to open a mountain," the Zen master had to tame these wild forces in regions most remote from civilization. In these extraordinary encounters, fingers and arms are cut off, pitchers are kicked over, masters appear in and interpret each other's dreams, and seemingly absurd statements are shown to reveal the deepest insights. Heine restores these koans to their original traditions, allowing readers to see both the complex elements of Chinese culture and religion that they reflect and the role they played in Zen's transformation of local superstitions into its own teachings. Offering a fresh approach to one of the most crucial elements of Zen Buddhism, Opening a Mountain is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand the full story behind koans and the mysterious worlds they come from.

My Body, My Earth by Ruby Gibson Summary

Within each body is an archaeological site that holds the details and wisdom of our extraordinary life story, composed of generational, spiritual, and personal experiences. Historical amnesia locks these stories in the body, manifesting as pain, disease, addictions, emotional patterns, and repetitive circumstances. Somatically excavating your personal legend unearths memories of the past that can be reconciled and healed in order to create a new myth-for your body and for your Earth. "My Body, My Earth provides a detailed and eloquent rationale and description for how this remarkable technique works, both as a therapeutic model and a self-help manual. It is a major contribution to the burgeoning literature in the field of somatic psychology."-Robert Scaer, M.D., author, The Body Bears the Burden: Trauma, Dissociation and Disease, and The Trauma Spectrum: Hidden Wounds and Human Resiliency "A remarkable incursion into one of the deepest of all mysteries: the hidden memories that are locked into the fibers of our bodies. This book is an impressive and extremely helpful guide to reuniting the conscious and unconscious aspects of the mind."-Richard Smoley, author of Conscious Love and Inner Christianity

Hello Again, Already! by Milton Finch Summary

In his new book about Pentecost, Hello Again, Already!, Milton Finch sheds new light on End Time events and Second Coming thought. It is Milton Finchs desire to keep the Scriptural interpretation of the original Greek and Hebrew as close as possible to the original meaning intended. Often times, the English interpretation has become cluttered with what some interpreters already considered to be a truth about certain sections of Scripture. In the authors mind the spiritual aspects in interpretation are considered the purest and this has not always been the case in many of the literal interpretations of Scripture. Through open-minded interpretation, Milton Finch has found the truth to become a free flowing reality where Scripture builds upon itself in the solidification of its point of interest. A simple yet deep book.

Hellenistic Tragedy by Agnieszka Kotlinska-Toma Summary

Ancient Greek tragedy is ubiquitously studied and researched, but is generally considered to have ended, as it began, in the fifth century BC. However, plays continued to be written and staged in the Greek world for centuries, enjoying a period of unprecedented popularity and changing significantly from the better known Classical drama. Hellenistic drama also heavily influenced the birth of Roman tragedy and the development of other theatrical forms and literature (including comedies, mime and Greek romance). Hellenistic Tragedy: Texts, Translations and a Critical Survey offers a comprehensive picture of tragedy and the satyr play from the fourth century BCE. The surviving fragments of this dramatic genre are presented, alongside English translations and critical analysis, as well as a survey of the main writers involved and an exploration of the genre's formation, later influence and staging. Key features of the plays are analysed through extant texts and other evidence, including plots based on contemporary political themes, mythical subjects and Biblical themes, and features of metre and language. Practical elements of Hellenistic performance are also discussed, including those which have become the hallmarks of ancient theatre: actors' costumes of long robes, kothurnoi and high onkos-masks, the theatre building and the closed stage on the logeion. Piecing together a synthetic picture of Hellenistic tragedy and the satyr play, the volume also examines the key points of departure from earlier drama, including the mass audience, the mutual influence of Greek and Eastern traditions and the changes inside the genre which prove Hellenistic drama was an important stage in the development of the European theatre.

A Wonder Book for Girls and Boys by Nathaniel Hawthorne Summary

Nathaniel Hawthorne presents a multilayered story consisting of six Greek myths that are told from a unique perspective and appeals to all readers, specifically children. His writing style transcends age to deliver a family-friendly narrative. A Wonder-Book for Girls and Boys is a compilation of classic stories inspired by Greek mythology. Hawthorne’s interpretation is filtered through the fictional character, Eustace Bright, a college student who’s entertaining a group of children. The book features “The Gorgon's Head,” a popular epic that follows Perseus and his quest to slay Medusa. There’s also “The Paradise of Children,” a cautionary tale about Pandora’s box, and “The Golden Touch,” which recalls the story of King Midas. Originally published in 1851, A Wonder-Book for Girls and Boys continues to stand the test of time. Its stories are literary staples that have been adapted for multiple mediums. The collection also produced the sequel, Tanglewood Tales, which was released in 1853. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of A Wonder-Book for Girls and Boys is both modern and readable.

Before Adam by London, Jack Summary

Pictures! Pictures! Pictures! Often, before I learned, did I wonder whence came the multitudes of pictures that thronged my dreams; for they were pictures the like of which I had never seen in real wake-a-day life. They tormented my childhood, making of my dreams a procession of nightmares and a little later convincing me that I was different from my kind, a creature unnatural and accursed.

The Prince of Medicine by Susan P. Mattern Summary

Galen of Pergamum (A.D. 129 - ca. 216) began his remarkable career tending to wounded gladiators in provincial Asia Minor. Later in life he achieved great distinction as one of a small circle of court physicians to the family of Emperor Marcus Aurelius, at the very heart of Roman society. Susan Mattern's The Prince of Medicine offers the first authoritative biography in English of this brilliant, audacious, and profoundly influential figure. Like many Greek intellectuals living in the high Roman Empire, Galen was a prodigious polymath, writing on subjects as varied as ethics and eczema, grammar and gout. Indeed, he was (as he claimed) as highly regarded in his lifetime for his philosophical works as for his medical treatises. However, it is for medicine that he is most remembered today, and from the later Roman Empire through the Renaissance, medical education was based largely on his works. Even up to the twentieth century, he remained the single most influential figure in Western medicine. Yet he was a complicated individual, full of breathtaking arrogance, shameless self-promotion, and lacerating wit. He was fiercely competitive, once disemboweling a live monkey and challenging the physicians in attendance to correctly replace its organs. Relentless in his pursuit of anything that would cure the patient, he insisted on rigorous observation and, sometimes, daring experimentation. Even confronting one of history's most horrific events--a devastating outbreak of smallpox--he persevered, bearing patient witness to its predations, year after year. The Prince of Medicine gives us Galen as he lived his life, in the city of Rome at its apex of power and decadence, among his friends, his rivals, and his patients. It offers a deeply human and long-overdue portrait of one of ancient history's most significant and engaging figures.
