A Story of the Texas Frontier
Author: James Kaye
Publisher: Xlibris Corporation
Louisa of Woods Crossing is about the Texas frontier just prior to the 1836 War of Texas Independence. The fourteen year-old heroine of the story lived during times of hardships and dangers including nightmarish depredations by hostile Indians inclined to barbarous acts. Nothing was more feared than raids on cabins and the terrifying abductions of teen-aged girls. The family homestead on the Lavaca River was that of the typical log cabin with fi elds, pastures, and the customary animals except for two red wolf watchdogs adopted as orphaned pups. The story is also an endearing one of close friendships with other pioneer girls.

Author: Arthur Penrhyn Stanley
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Category: Biography & Autobiography
Thomas Arnold (1795-1842) was Head of Rugby School in England from 1828, and, for the final year of his life, Professor of History at Oxford University. He played a pivotal role in the British educational system, and was known for his then controversial ideas on schooling and religion. First published in 1844, these two volumes present a diverse collection of Arnold's correspondence, compiled by his friend and former pupil, Dean of Westminster, Arthur Penrhyn Stanley (1815-81). Interspersed with a biographical commentary by Stanley, the letters in Volume 1 reveal Arnold's early life and work, followed by his career at Rugby up to 1835. In them he discusses his ideas for reform in both teaching and religion, and reveals his unfailing dedication to both. Lending a fascinating insight into school and church life in the nineteenth century, Arnold's writings continue to interest scholars of both religion and education.

The Caleighs have had a terrible year... They need time and space, while they await the news they dread. Gabe has brought his wife, Eve, and daughters, Loren and Cally, down to Devon, to the peaceful seaside village of Hollow Bay. He can work and Eve and the kids can have some peace and quiet and perhaps they can try, as a family, to come to terms with what’s happened to them... Crickley Hall is an unusually large house on the outskirts of the village at the bottom of Devil's Cleave, a massive tree-lined gorge - the stuff of local legend. A river flows past the front garden. It's perfect for them... if a bit gloomy. And Chester, their dog, seems really spooked at being away from home. And old houses do make sounds. And it's constantly cold. And even though they shut the cellar door every night, it’s always open again in morning... The Secret of Crickley Hall is James Herbert’s finest novel to date. It explores the darker, more obtuse territories of evil and the supernatural. With brooding menace and rising tension, he masterfully and relentlessly draws the reader through to the ultimate revelation – one that will stay to chill the mind long after the book has been laid aside.
