The Alpine Path: The Story of My Career By Lucy Maud Montgomery
eBook (ePub): $3.99
The Alpine Path: The Story of My Career (1917) by L. M. Montgomery. "When the Editor of Everywoman's World asked me to write "The Story of My Career," I smiled with a little touch of... More > incredulous amusement. My career? Had I a career? Was not – should not – a "career" be something splendid, wonderful, spectacular at the very least, something varied and exciting? Could my long, uphill struggle, through many quiet, uneventful years, be termed a "career"? It had never occurred to me to call it so; and, on first thought, it did not seem to me that there was much to be said about that same long, monotonous struggle. But it appeared to be a whim of the aforesaid editor that I should say what little there was to be said; and in those same long years I acquired the habit of accommodating myself to the whims of editors to such an inveterate degree that I have not yet been able to shake it off. So I shall cheerfully tell my tame story..."< Less

Derek Amato’s reflections in My Beautiful Disaster provide rare insight into what people with extraordinary gifts see, think, feel and do; pose questions about the potential to tap into... More > previously undetected abilities and spotlight the ‘silent epidemic’ of head trauma. His experiences also make vivid some the challenges faced by those living with autism and other neurological disorders and hint at the possibility we all have more in common than we think. Readers enchanted by autistic savant, Daniel Tammet’s eloquent Born On A Blue Day, will welcome another multi-layered, first person account of what is to live with a remarkable condition. Uniquely, having spent his life as a “neurotypical” Amato’s tale relates the before and after of ‘the gift’; his voice at times resonating with incredulity at what has happened and what the eventual cost may be.< Less

More > "intelligence of the world," the author is fully aware of the incredulity with which it may meet in many literary minds. Nevertheless, the truths which it contains will remain unmarred by the salient attacks of "critics," when they have passed away and have ceased to be remembered. Thus it has ever been with the discovery of all great and important truths, from the creation of man down to the present day. For more than eighteen hundred years now past, the succession of a once prominent race have disbelieved in the Messiahship of Christ. And even the Christian world are still divided in their belief as to a Trinity in Unity.< Less

English; Hardcover Cloth Bound with Dust Jacket; The Testament of Solomon is the basis for all Solomonic Occult works of Demonology in the Common Era. It is an Old Testament pseudepigraphical work,... More > the authorship of which is ascribed to King Solomon. It describes how Solomon was enabled to build the Temple by commanding demons by means of a magical ring entrusted to him by the Archangel Michael. Its original publication dates to the 1st century CE. A Biblical reference to the Testament of Solomon is found in Luke 11:29, 31. Jesus says, after expelling demons before an incredulous crowd, "This is a wicked generation. It asks for a miraculous sign. The Queen of the South will rise in judgment with the men of this generation...for she came from the ends of the earth to listen to Solomon's wisdom, and now one greater than Solomon is here." The supernatural qualities of the verses suggest Solomon was more than just wise, and may be the basis for the occultism dedicated to Solomon in Western Christianity.< Less
Romance Island By Zona Gale

Prince Tabnit's announcement was received by his guests in the silence of amazement. If they had been told that Miss Holland's father was secretly acting as King of England they could have been no... More > more profoundly startled than to hear stated soberly that he had been for nearly a year the king of a cannibal island. For the cannibal phase of his experience seemed a foregone conclusion. To St. George, profoundly startled and most incredulous, the possible humour of the situation made first appeal. The picture of an American gentleman seated upon a gold throne in a leopard-skin coat, ordering "oysters and foes" for breakfast, was irresistible. "But he shaved with a shell when he chose, 'Twas the manner of Primitive Man" floated through his mind, and he brought himself up sharply. Clearly, somebody was out of his head, but it must not be he. "What?" cried Mrs. Hastings in two inelegant syllables, on the second of which her uncontrollable voice rose.< Less

He has a distant relative in America, in New York State, whom he has never met but who has told him he is welcome at his farm. The first idea of this little story was suggested to the author by a printed account of a trial which actually took place, early in the present century, in the United States... It may not be amiss to add, for the benefit of incredulous readers, that all the ''improbable events'' in the story are matters of fact, taken from the printed narrative. Anything which ''looks like truth'' is, in nine cases out of ten, the invention of the author. "< Less
