When Allan Quatermain, the colonial adventurer-explorer of H. Rider Haggard's novel 'King Solomon's Mines', is in need of either comfort or wisdom, he turns to the pages of 'The Ingoldsby Legends'.... More > Originally published in 'Bentley's Miscellany', the collected 'Ingoldsby Legends' of 1840 was to be found on the shelves of any respectable private library. Myths, legends, and stories of ghosts are the quarry of a mind that strides effortlessly between humorous parody of medieval folklore and the Goliardic satire of individuals and institutions. But, perhaps more importantly, this 'lost' classic of the middle Victorian world provides a valuable insight into the imagination of a people who were to build the largest empire that the world had ever seen. This beautiful scholarly edition contains over twenty plates by some of England's best-known satirical cartoonists of the day. It is edited and introduced by G.A.R. Hamilton.< Less

In the estimate of the affable brakeman (a gentleman wearing sky-blue army pantaloons tucked into cowhide boots, half-buttoned vest, flannel shirt open at the throat, and upon his red hair a... More > flaring-brimmed black slouch hat) we were making a fair average of twenty miles an hour across the greatest country on earth. It was a flat country of far horizons, and for vast stretches peopled mainly, as one might judge from the car windows, by antelope and the equally curious rodents styled prairie dogs. Yet despite the novelty of such a ride into that unknown new West now being spanned at giant’s strides by the miraculous Pacific Railway, behold me, surfeited with already five days’ steady travel, engrossed chiefly in observing a clear, dainty profile and waiting for the glimpses, time to time, of a pair of exquisite blue eyes.< Less

Discovering a body which beholds unrecognisable, passers-by stumble across a body on the South Downs on a summer's evening (1948). Truly baffled by this savage murder, the Police admits, with no... More > real evidence or any witness accounts, the attacker can go undetected. It is then recorded as unsolved. The victim's family appeals over a decade to a locally retired detective, Trevor Higgins – highly recommended for his years in the service – who is assigned again to this haunting case as more victims are taken. Psychological and emotional events take place and, trying to separate facts and leads, it consumes Trevor for all he's worth. Not ranging in far from him, wiggling free from the crowd seems to only encourage a distant shadow to follow. Someone seems to oversee is every move. There are no outbreaks to stride beyond the fugitive. Can the case be solved without more fallen victims?< Less

Wildwood Ways By Winthrop Packard

"TO-DAY came with a flashing sun that looked through crystal-clear atmosphere into the eyes of a keen northwest wind that had dried up all of November's fog and left no trace of moisture to hold... More > its keenness and touch you with its chill. It was one of those days when the cart road from the north side to the south side of a pine wood leads you from early December straight to early May. On the one side is a nipping and eager air; on the other sunny softness and a smell of spring. It is more than that difference of a hundred miles in latitude which market gardeners say exists between the north and south side of a board fence. It is like having thousand league boots and passing from Labrador to Louisiana at a stride."< Less

TWO gentlemen were seated, one March morning in 1890 - , in the private office of French and Company, Limited, on lower Broadway. Mr. Kirby, the junior partner - a man of thirty-five, with brown hair... More > and mustache, clean-cut, handsome features, and an alert manner, was smoking cigarettes almost as fast as he could roll them, and at the same time watching the electric clock upon the wall and getting up now and then to stride restlessly back and forth across the room. Mr. French, the senior partner, who sat opposite Kirby, was an older man - a safe guess would have placed him somewhere in the debatable ground between forty and of good height, as could be seen even from the seated figure the upper part of which was held erect with the unconscious ease which one associates with military training.< Less

Eliot’s The Waste Land was the inspiration for this modern Quest for the Grail. While the land might not be laid waste, the lives of so many people patently are. We fall in love with the wrong... More > people, we treat the right people badly, we lose sight of a world we once thought might hold hope. This story tells of the lives and loves of Reinhold Walter and Lena Robson. From the hope and optimism of youth to the realization as the years pass that they are in danger of becoming trapped in the Waste Land, their lives run in parallel. Yet neither quite lose sight of what they both, independently, regard as their Quest, despite Reinhold’s disastrous marriage and Lena’s betrayal by the men she has loved. The story strides from wartime Germany to present day England, from London to the Lake District and Eastern Europe to California, poverty lies with plenty, kindness with monstrous ingratitude; and like the medieval questors, each must ultimately ask the Question that will lead to resolution and healing.< Less
Mary Slessor of Calabar -- Pioneer Missionary By W. P. Livingstone

You hold in your hands a piece of history. Mary Slessor was a Scottish missionary to Nigeria. Her work ethic and strong personality won the trust and acceptance of local African people in a time... More > where there were but few missionaries, and even fewer women on the field. She was known for the hope of the gospel, loving the people, protecting native children and promoting women's rights. In 1876 Mary followed her call to bring the gospel to Africa. She became known for her pragmatism, strength and humor. Slessor lived a simple life in a traditional house with Efiks. Rediscover for yourself the power of the gospel to bring a people into their destiny, and call a nation into being. The DNA of the early missionaries is an important piece of the puzzle for us today as we walk in the footsteps of these pioneers. We must learn from these stories as we stride into the end of the ages -- when every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord of all the Earth!< Less

For years I have been fascinated by how one’s thoughts and mental attitude can seriously affect one’s health. I believe that most people take their mind for granted and have no real idea... More > of how powerful it is or how they could use that power to improve their health and well-being. Whilst western medicine makes huge strides in the treatment of symptoms of sickness and disease using man-made drugs, the role of the mind and the body’s own powerful immune system is often overlooked. In my book I have tried to explain some of the very simple ways to use the power of the mind to control both physical and mental health. Also ways to reduce the chance of sickness and injury, maintain the correct weight and live a longer, happier and more productive life. As an ex-smoker of 16yrs, I have outlined a quit smoking method that finally worked for me as well as many of my friends.< Less
