Juniper Sawfeather seems to have a talent for finding mythological creatures. Or maybe the creatures are finding her. The mermaids she saved from the oil spill are long gone. There’s no... More > evidence of them, and she’s been branded as a liar and a fake in the media and at school. Her environmental activist parents have moved on to a protest to save Old Growth trees from being chopped down.

WHERE DID WE COME FROM? By Michael Jaquish

Prints in 3-5 business days
What do you say when your child asks you, “where do we come from?” Most Americans claim Christian affiliation so most tend to respond with the Biblical story of creation. Religion is a... More > part of our history and it plays an enormous role in American culture, but truth is important and there is a big difference between belief and knowledge. ‘Truth’ is what this book is all about. Although it touches briefly on speculation about the existence of the soul and how some cultures deal with this issue, the primary intent is to provide facts based upon what humans KNOW about our universe rather than what we believe. If you are one who feels uncomfortable with a discussion about evolution and the big bang that created our universe 14 billion years ago, this book is not for you. If you are one who values facts over mythology though, you are likely to embrace the information with relief and wonder why it took so long for someone to address this controversial topic in such a straight-forward manner.< Less

eBook (ePub): $3.99
Andrew Lang's Fairy Books — also known as Andrew Lang's "Coloured" Fairy Books or Andrew Lang's Fairy Books of Many Colors — are a twelve-book series of fairy tale collections.... More > Although Andrew Lang did not collect the stories himself from the oral tradition, the extent of his sources, who had collected them originally — with the notable exception of Madame d'Aulnoy — made them an immensely influential collection, especially as he used foreign-language sources, giving many of these tales their first appearance in English. As acknowledged in the prefaces, although Lang himself made most of the selections, his wife and other translators did a large portion of the translating and telling of the actual stories. According to Anita Silvey, "The irony of Lang's life and work is that although he wrote for a profession—literary criticism; fiction; poems; books and articles on anthropology, mythology, history, and travel ... he is best recognized for the works he did not write...< Less
