Download or Read book Creatures in the Mist written by Gary R. Varner and published by Algora Publishing. This book was released on 2007 with total page 210 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: Bringing together a medley of stories, myths, and folklore Gary Varner shares a fascination and respect for humankind's early and contemporary cultures and wonders at similarities across the board. Here, he focuses on "Little People" and giants, animals and were-creatures, and the odd, helpful or threatening ways imputed to our earthly companions including dogs and cats, bats and spiders, and the stories people have told each other about them since time immemorial. Gary Varner has performed a valuable service in these books. [Presenting] lore from about the world, a collector's hoard of traditions rich and strange, ... Varner shows there really are obvious and puzzling similarities between widely separated cultures. Gary Varner has pointed the way to some important cross-cultural readings in the ageless themes of stone and water. - Jeremy Harte, Curator of the Bourne Hall Museum, Surrey, England, in Northern Earth magazine, #103, 2005 Menhirs, Dolmen and Circles of Stone is an excellent guide to large-scale magical stones and stone magic. This book is a must for anyone interested in megalithic sites. Most highly recommended. -PanGaia Magazine, United States As with other books by the same author, this is a book based upon broad research into the subject, stretching across the world. What results is a fascinating weave of stories and images, descriptions of sites and associated tales, that leaves a sense of a thousand deities whispering in the air. Because it is so broad a sweep, the positive outcome is an overreaching perspective of the patterns and commonalities held between human communities - our ancestors - all around the world. The book is a sound overview and provocation toresearch more deeply ourselves, to find alternative visions, tales and interpretations, to find out more about the sacred currents, their depths and importance - both to our ancestors and to ourselves. The author's notations are comprehensive, allowing us easily to follow the clues. A valuable piece of work. -The Druid Network, England * Gary R. Varner is a lecturer and writer on folklore and early religions. He is author of several popular books comparing legends and beliefs around the world, including The Mythic Forest, the Green Man & the Spirit of Nature (Algora 2006); Menhirs, Dolmen and Circles of Stone: The Folklore and Magic of Sacred Stone (Algora 2005); and Sacred Wells: A Study in the History, Meaning, and Mythology of Holy Wells. His approach incorporates details from ancient cultures and from Native American, UK and European, Asian, South Pacific and African folklore. Varner is a member of the American Folklore Society.

Summary Book and excerpt Folk-taxonomies in Early English :

Download or Read book Folk-taxonomies in Early English written by Earl R. Anderson and published by Fairleigh Dickinson Univ Press. This book was released on 2003 with total page 598 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: A folk-taxonomy is a semantic field that represents the particular way in which a language imposes structure and order upon the myriad impressions of human experience and perception. Thus, for example, the experience of color in modem English is structured around an inventory of twelve "basic" color terms; but languages vary in the number of basic color terms used, from thirteen or fourteen terms to as few as two or three. Anthropological linguists have been interested in the comparative study of folk-taxonomies across contemporary languages, and in their studies they have sometimes proposed evolutionary models for the development and elaboration of these taxonomies. The evolutionary models have implications for historical linguistics, but there have been very few studies of the historical development of a folk-taxonomy within a language or within a language family. Folk-Taxonomies in Early English undertakes this task for English, and to some extent for the Germanic and Indo-European language families. The semantic fields studied are basic color terms, seasons of the year, geometric shapes, the five senses, the folk-psychology of mind and soul, and basic plant and animal life-forms. Anderson's emphasis is on folk-taxonomies in Old and Middle English, and also on the implications of semantic analysis for our reading of early English literary texts.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: "The Naked Man is the fourth and final volume [of Mythologiques], written by the most influential and probably the most controversial anthropologist of our time. . . . Myths from North and South America are set side by side to show their transformations: in passing from person to person and place to place, a myth can change its content and yet retain its structural principles. . . . Apart from the complicated transformations discovered and the fascinating constructions placed on these, the stories themselves provide a feast."—Betty Abel, Contemporary Review "Lévi-Strauss uses the structural method he developed to analyze and 'decode' the mythology of native North Americans, focusing on the area west of the Rockies. . . . [The author] takes the opportunity to refute arguments against his method; his chapter 'Finale' is a defense of structural analysis as well as the closing statement of this four-volume opus which started with an 'Ouverture' in The Raw and the Cooked."—Library Journal "The culmination of one of the major intellectual feats of our time."—Paul Stuewe, Quill and Quire

Book excerpt/Synopsis: Bad Medicine is another collection of short stories by writer Keith G. Laufenberg that brings the reality of life in America-that of a nation where virtually everything, including health care, is available for profit only and must be bought & paid for-before delivery. Every working and non-working American-disabled, either by sickness or poverty-has lived through this and, to this very day, in 2014, continue to live through it. These stories graphically illustrate why it is the Capitalist System itself that harbors institutions that lie, rob, cheat and steal and all in the name of the very God that they all worship-profit! It shows why they-the the doctors, lawyers, politicians and insurance companies-have a strangle hold on America which can only end in the country experiencing a depression a bankruptcy-or both-or a revolution. These stories will keep you reading long into the day or night as you root for the underdog, even though you know he may not ""win,"" this time around.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: Spanning three generations, this historical novel tells the tale of Boudicca, the most famous warrior of ancient Britain, and Caradoc, the son of a Celtic king, who sets out to unite the people of the Raven and lead them against Rome. Caradoc's objective is not easily accomplished as the Roman army advances into Britain, raping Celtic women and burning villages to the ground. His efforts are also met with fierce opposition from Aricia, the vain queen of a northern tribe who swears allegiance to the Romans after Caradoc slights her, and from Gladys, Caradoc’s warrior sister who falls in love with her Roman captor. Unfortunately, Caradoc’s endeavors are left unresolved when he is taken prisoner, but Boudicca, a strong-willed woman, ultimately takes up the cause that was Caradoc’s legacy.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: “The best nature writer working in Britain today.” – The Los Angeles Times. Eagles, more than any other bird, spark our imaginations. These magnificent creatures encapsulate the majesty and wildness of Scottish nature. But change is afoot for the eagles of Scotland: the golden eagles are now sharing the skies with sea eagles after a successful reintroduction programme. In ‘The Eagle’s Way’, Jim Crumley exploits his years of observing these spectacular birds to paint an intimate portrait of their lives and how they interact with each other and the Scottish landscape. Combining passion, beautifully descriptive prose and the writer’s 25 years of experience, ‘The Eagle’s Way’ explores the ultimate question - what now for the eagles? - making it essential reading for wildlife lovers and eco-enthusiasts.

Summary Book and excerpt Help to Grow :

Download or Read book Help to Grow written by Dr. Sunday Odii and published by WestBow Press. This book was released on 2022-01-27 with total page 250 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: Many children of God would agree that God doesn’t require a lot of pageantry and hoopla first to answer a truly heartfelt prayer neither does he want us to badger Him repeatedly before He grants our requests. HELP to GROW is a book that reflects a confirmation that salvation is the work of God through grace as opposed to being earned. It underscores the fact that salvation does not start and end at the point when we surrender our lives to Christ. It sure is a work that continues till we are fully conformed to the image of Christ Jesus. This is only possible through spending quality time in the place of sincere prayer and jealously gaurding your salvation daily until death comes or at rapture, whichever happens first. Therefore, this book is a powerful prayer guide that practically teaches how to pray, offers its readers a hands-on approach to praying the Scripture and contains over 300 prayer points and prophetic declarations. This book has been divided into two independent parts.The first, centred on praying the scripture, raising prayer points on various aspect of life’s issues as well as a few intercessory prayers for special persons. The second part of the book contains 12 Nuggets - which offers practical and fascinating individual vignettes that will help believers through God’s Grace to grow in their walk with Christ Jesus and guard their salvation spiritually in this side of eternity. These Nuggets are a collection of Scriptural truths that can guide fledling believers in Christ as we approach the end times to ensure we don’t grow complacent and lax in our devotion. This book is written to share both personal and other people’s experience where possible to encourage believers to be mindlful of subtle pitfalls - little foxes - that are lurking around the corners of our lives which, if not properly and intentionally identified and worked upon, could potentially drail our journey. The goal is that the impact will be enormous and eternal for everyone who reads this book and purposefully works it out. “Help to Grow is an easy to read and implement, intelligent submission. I recommend you read this book as it will impact or transform your prayer and family life and help solidify your relationship with God.” —Pastor Adeleke Aiku Zonal Pastor Manitoba-2, The Redeemed Christian Church of God (Canada)
