Beautiful and Dark
"In a new translation by Adrienne Mitchell, Beautiful and Dark tells of an orphan who finds herself visited by a miniature friend. Living in a slum surrounded by strangers after her parents' deaths, the little girl becomes absorbed in the creature's unlikely stories as a way to make her world less hostile. In the tradition of Arabian Nights and other fairy tale cycles, these narratives become the prime substance of the fable. Rosa Montero first published the magical-realist novel in 1993, when it became a bestseller in Spain. Montero has won the World Prize for her newspaper interviews and reporting."

Henry Across the Shaman's River
Across the Shaman's River: John Muir, the Tlingit Stronghold, and the Opening of the North by Daniel Lee Henry Across the Shaman’s River is the story of one of Alaska’s last Native American strongholds, a Tlingit community closed off for a century until a fateful encounter between a shaman, a preacher, and John Muir. Tucked in the corner of Southeast Alaska, the Tlingits had successfully warded off the Anglo influences that had swept into other corners of the territory. This tribe was viewed by European and American outsiders as the last wild tribe and a frustrating impediment to access. Missionaries and prospectors alike had widely failed to bring the Tlingit into their power. Yet, when John Muir arrived in 1879, accompanied by a fiery preacher, it only took a speech about “brotherhood”—and some encouragement from the revered local shaman Skandoo’o—to finally transform these “hostile heathens.” Using Muir’s original journal entries, as well as historic writings of explorers juxtaposed with insights from contemporary tribal descendants, Across the Shaman’s River reveals how Muir’s famous canoe journey changed the course of history and had profound consequences on the region’s Native Americans.

Here on the Edge
"Steve McQuiddy shares the fascinating story of one conscientious objector camp located on the rain-soaked Oregon Coast, Civilian Public Service (CPS) Camp #56. As home to the Fine Arts Group at Waldport, the camp became a center of activity where artists and writers from across the country focused their work not so much on the current war, but on what kind of society might be possible when the shooting finally stopped."
