Clover Lawless is not your average 12 year old girl. She is adventurous, inquisitive and with an unearned wisdom buried deep inside her. She doesn't buy in to any of the childhood fantasies and fairy tales. As far as Clover is concerned, "seeing is believing." Every day after school, Clover and her father Emmett drive up to Winter Oak where they tend to the horses that live there. Clover has always felt a connection to Winter Oak but never really understood why. Winter Oak has a tragic past that none of the adults in the town will discuss with the children, but Clover is determined to find out what happened even if it challenges everything she has always known to be true. Her adventurous streak and inquisitive nature get her the answers she seeks but it is not what she was expecting. What she finds is the mystery of her lineage intertwined with a history she could have only dreamed of, sending Clover to embark on the greatest adventure of her life. But, what does this mean for her future?
Growing up poor in Naskeag Falls, Maine, Maureen Pierce finds her life transformed forever by an encounter with Brian Albion, who claims that she has inherited a blood legacy with ties to the fantastical world of Merlin and Mordred.

8 August 1942. As Gandiji and prominent leaders are put in jail, Babu and Manju suddenly find themselves a part of the larger protests--their schools close down and their father is put behind bars. Their daring brother Mohan goes underground and the rest of the family moves to Narayanpur, a sleepy little village seemingly untouched by the turbulence in the country. But Narayanpur is seething within and it all comes to a head when a group of children dare to confront the police.
In this follow-up to The Summer Country, Maureen Pierce has embraced her magical heritage. But before she can settle down with her new love--Pendragon warrior Brian Albion--she must face the sorceress she believed was vanquished forever.
When eighth grader Abby Lovitt looks out at those pure-gold rolling hills, she knows there’s no place she’d rather be than her family’s ranch—even with all the hard work of tending to nine horses. But some chores are no work at all, like grooming young Jack. At eight months, his rough foal coat has shed out, leaving a smooth, rich silk, like chocolate. As for Black George, such a good horse, it turns out he’s a natural jumper. When he and Abby clear four feet easy as pie, heads start to turn at the ring—buyers’ heads—and Abby knows Daddy won’t turn down a good offer. Then a letter arrives from a private investigator, and suddenly Abby stands to lose not one horse but two. The letter states that Jack’s mare may have been sold to the Lovitts as stolen goods. A mystery unfolds, more surprising than Abby could ever expect. Will she lose her beloved Jack to his rightful owners? Pulitzer Prize winner Jane Smiley raises horses of her own, and her affection and expertise shine through in this inviting horse novel for young readers, set in 1960s California horse country and featuring characters from The Georges and the Jewels.
Book Fifty Common Birds of the Upper Midwest Description/Summary:
No bird is common, if we use “common” to mean ordinary. But birds that are seen more commonly than others can seem less noteworthy than species that are rarely glimpsed. In this gathering of essays and illustrations celebrating fifty of the most common birds of the Upper Midwest, illustrator Dana Gardner and writer Nancy Overcott encourage us to take a closer look at these familiar birds with renewed appreciation for their not-so-ordinary beauty and lifeways. Beginning with the garishly colored male and the more gently colored female wood duck, whose tree cavity nest serves as a launching pad for ducklings in the summer months, and ending on a bright yellow note with the American goldfinch, whose cheerful presence enlivens the midwestern landscape all year long, Overcott combines field observations drawn from her twenty-plus years of living and birding in Minnesota's Big Woods with anecdotes and data from other ornithologists to portray each species' life cycle, its vocalizations and appearance, and its habitat, food, and foraging methods as well as migration patterns and distribution. Infused with a dedication to conserving natural resources, her succinct yet personable prose forms an ideal complement to Gardner's watercolors as this renowned illustrator of avian life worldwide revisits the birds of his childhood. Together art and text ensure that the wild turkey, great blue heron, sharp-shinned hawk, barred owl, pileated woodpecker, house wren, ovenbird, field sparrow, rose-breasted grosbeak, red-winged blackbird, and forty other species of the Upper Midwest are never seen as common again.
This inventive picture book relays the events of two hundred years from the unique perspective of a magnificent oak tree, showing how much the world can transform from a single vantage point. From 1775 to the present day, this fascinating framing device lets readers watch as human and animal populations shift and the landscape transitions from country to city. Methods of transportation, communication and energy use progress rapidly while other things hardly seem to change at all. This engaging, eye-opening window into history is perfect for budding historians and nature enthusiasts alike, and the time-lapse quality of the detail-packed illustrations will draw readers in as they pore over each spread to spot the changes that come with each new era. A fact-filled poster is included to add to the fun.
In 1960s California, Abby Lovitt has trouble with True Blue, the newest horse on her family's ranch, a beautiful dappled gray who is so often spooked, making Abby wonder if he is haunted by the ghost of his deceased former owner.
Book The Anarchist Revelation Description/Summary:
Paul Cudenec draws on an impressively wide range of authors to depict a corrupted civilization on the brink of self-destruction and to call for a powerful new philosophy of resistance and renewal offering a future for humanity in which we are all able to "be what we're meant to be." He combines the anarchism of the likes of Gustav Landauer, Michael Bakunin and Herbert Read with the philosophy of Rene Guenon, Herbert Marcuse and Jean Baudrillard; the existentialism of Karl Jaspers and Colin Wilson; the vision of Carl Jung, Oswald Spengler and Idries Shah, and the environmental insight of Derrick Jensen and Paul Shepard in a work of ideological alchemy fuelled by the ancient universal esoteric beliefs found in Sufism, Taoism and hermeticism. With a fusion of scholarly research and inspiring polemic, Cudenec succeeds in forging a coherent and profound 21st century world-view with an appeal that will reach out far beyond those who currently term themselves anarchists. The book sets out by exploring the sense of meaninglessness in modern society, exemplified by our alienating dependency on technology and mental manipulation by commercial interests. It follows Guenon, Marcuse and Baudrillard in diagnosing a regression of intellect and the reign of quality over quantity - a condition that Cudenec describes as the disease of...
