"More poets than one might guess — both published and yet-to-be-discovered — lurk in the hollows and hills of Chesterville. On October 9, 2015, the first Chesterville Poetry Night on... More > record was held at the Chesterville Center Union Meeting House. Chesterville poets and their admirers gathered in the time-honored community space to share truth and beauty, wit and wisdom. Several present-day artists read their own works, while works of a few authors from the town's past were read by current residents. This little volume is the result of the generosity of the Poetry Night artists and the hard-working volunteers behind the non-profit Meeting House. We hope it will preserve part of the spirit of that evening. Our even greater hope is that it will inspire more poetry and poets to emerge from the hidden reaches of Chesterville."

Three Hundred Aesop's Fables By George Fyler Townsend, Translator
eBook (ePub): $3.00
"He was owned by two masters in succession, both inhabitants of Samos, Xanthus and Jadmon, the latter of whom gave him his liberty as a reward for his learning and wit. One of the privileges of...

In his desire alike to instruct and to be instructed, he travelled through many countries, and among others came to Sardis, the capital of the famous king of Lydia, the great patron, in that day, of learning and of learned men..."< Less

The most diligent research failed to discover so much as a magazine article, written within this generation, that described the land and its people. Nay, there was not even a novel or a story that showed intimate local knowledge. Had I been going to Teneriffe or Timbuctu, the libraries would have furnished information a-plenty; but about this housetop of eastern America they were strangely silent; it was terra incognita."< Less

Birds In the Bush By Bradford Torrey
eBook (ePub): $3.00
"OUR Common and Garden are not an ideal field of operations for the student of birds. No doubt they are rather straitened and public. Other things being equal, a modest ornithologist would... More > prefer a place where he could stand still and look up without becoming himself a gazing-stock. But it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps;.... I recall, for example, the heightened interest with which I beheld my first Boston cat-bird; standing on the back of one of the seats in the Garden, steadying himself with oscillations of his tail,... while he peeped curiously down into a geranium bed, within the leafy seclusion of which he presently disappeared. He was... a cat-bird; if I had seen him in the country I should have passed him by without a second glance; but here, at the base of the Everett statue, he looked, somehow, like a bird of another feather. Since then, it is true, I have learned that his occasional presence with us in the season of the semi-annual migration is not a matter for astonishment...."< Less
Behemoth: A Legend By Cornelius Matthews
eBook (ePub): $3.00
"UPON the summit of a mountain which beetled in the remote west over the dwellings and defences of a race long since vanished, stood, at the close of a midsummer's day, a gigantic shape whose... More > vastness darkened the whole vale beneath.... Below in a thousand groups were gathered, in their wonted evening worship, that strange people who have left upon our hills and prairies so many monuments of their power, and who yet, by some mighty accident, have taken the trumpet out of the hand of Fame, and closed for ever, as regards their historical and domestic character, the busy lips of tradition. Still we can gather vaguely, that the Mound-builders accomplished a career in the West, corresponding, though less magnificent and imposing, with that which the Greeks and Romans accomplished in what is styled by courtesy the Old World. The hour has been when our own West was thronged with empires."< Less
