Between the ages of six and ten I read a lot of YA and middle grade books, and a lot of book series—but as far as I was concerned, A Series of Unfortunate Events and Harry Potter were the only series that mattered. A decade later, A Series of Unfortunate Events was the series I most cared about rereading, for all its depth, complexity, and creativity. In this series of essays, I examine each book of the series upon rereading them, highlighting literary techniques, thematic explorations, and the ideas communicated in these books that have resonated with me from when I first read the series to today.<br /><br />The book also contains The Appalling Appendix, an index of selected notes from my ASOUE notes file.

Over one hundred years since their first appearance in 1908, they've become emblematic archetypes of eccentricity, folly, and friendship. And their misadventures-in gypsy caravans, stolen sports cars, and their Wild Wood-continue to capture readers' imaginations and warm their hearts long after they grow up. Begun as a series of letters from Kenneth Grahame to his son, The Wind in the Willows is a timeless tale of animal cunning and human camaraderie.</p>
Libertarians on the Prairie: Laura Ingalls Wilder, Rose Wilder La...

<div>Generations of children have fallen in love with the pioneer saga of the Ingalls family, of Pa and Ma, Laura and her sisters, and their loyal dog, Jack. Laura Ingalls Wilder's <I>Little House</I> books have taught millions of Americans about frontier life, giving inspiration to many and in the process becoming icons of our national identity. Yet few realize that this cherished bestselling series wandered far from the actual history of the Ingalls family and from what Laura herself understood to be central truths about pioneer life.<BR><BR>In this groundbreaking narrative of literary detection, Christine Woodside reveals for the first time the full extent of the collaboration between Laura and her daughter, Rose Wilder Lane. Rose hated farming and fled the family homestead as an adolescent, eventually becoming a nationally prominent magazine writer, biographer of Herbert Hoover, and successful novelist, who shared the political values of Ayn Rand and became mentor to Roger Lea MacBride, the second Libertarian presidential candidate. Drawing on original manuscripts and letters, Woodside shows how Rose reshaped her mother's story into a series of heroic tales that rebutted the policies of the New Deal. Their secret collaboration would lead in time to their estrangement. A fascinating look at the relationship between two strong-willed women, <I>Libertarians on the Prairie</I> is also the deconstruction of an American myth.<BR><BR>Skyhorse Publishing, along with our Arcade, Good Books, Sports Publishing, and Yucca imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of biographies, autobiographies, and memoirs. Our list includes biographies on well-known historical figures like Benjamin Franklin, Nelson Mandela, and Alexander Graham Bell, as well as villains from history, such as Heinrich Himmler, John Wayne Gacy, and O. J. Simpson. We have also published survivor stories of World War II, memoirs about overcoming adversity, first-hand tales of adventure, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a <I>New York Times</I> bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.</div>

It is becoming more and more a matter of regret that a larger amount of systematic effort was not established in early years for the gathering and preservation of the folk-lore of the Hawaiians. The world is under lasting obligations to the late Judge Fornander, and to Dr. Rae before him, for their painstaking efforts to gather the history of this people and trace their origin and migrations; but Fornander’s work only has seen the light, Dr. Rae’s manuscript having been accidentally destroyed by fire.<br /><br />The early attempts of Dibble and Pogue to gather history from Hawaiians themselves have preserved to native and foreign readers much that would probably otherwise have been lost. To the late Judge Andrews we are indebted for a very full grammar and dictionary of the language, as also for a valuable manuscript collection of meles and antiquarian literature that passed to the custody of the Board of Education.

<h1><i><b>Self-help books on the market today will tell you one of two things...</b></i></h1><br /><br /><br />... either that you are perfect already as you are and needn't worry, or that with just a little (well, a lot) of effort, you can reach those goals. Be the best, smartest, most successful, thinnest and relentlessly happiest version of yourself possible. <i>No excuses!</i><br /><br />Here, you will <i>NOT</i> find any quick tips and tricks on how to live a fabulous life free of suffering or fear or confusion. The approach I outline in these books actually goes <i>against</i> most of the popular ways to tackle depression, anxiety or general malaise. But it is an approach that allowed <i>me</i> to dig deep into my own authenticity, be honest with myself and start to make real, lasting changes in my life.<br /><br />I was petrified to really put myself out there, to look at myself as I was, without any bullshit. But then I realized that the pain of living inauthentically was greater than the pain of taking a risk and being myself.<br /><br />The exercises and case studies I’ve included in this collection are borne of my own insights and experience, but they are certainly not authoritative. If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance that your instinct for meaning and value is alive and well within you – <i>trust that instinct.</i><br /><br />My hope with these books is that they'll give you a starting point to begin to reconsider your relationship to yourself and, by extension, the world you live in. My hope is that you'll find something that inspires you to think differently and make different choices, ones that will leave you feeling more in control and more fulfilled than ever before. <br /><br /><b><i>We each only have one life - here's to spending it wisely!</i></b><br /><br />-----------------<br /><br /><h3><b>INCLUDED IN THIS COLLECTION:</b></h3><br /><b>BOOK 1:</b> “I’M OK!” - And All the Other BULLSH*T We Keep Telling Ourselves and Others: An Uncensored Approach On How to Stop Hiding Our Unhappiness<br /><b>BOOK 2:</b> Self-Compassion - I Don’t Have To Feel Better Than Others To Feel Good About Myself: Learn How To See Self Esteem Through The Lens Of Self-Love and Mindfulness and Cultivate The Courage To Be You<br /><b>BOOK 3:</b> Intentional Living - How to Not Die with Regrets by Living a Life That Matters<br />A 3-Step Blueprint<br /><b>BOOK 4:</b> When Life Gives You Lemons - The Power of Surrender, Humor and Compassion When the Going Gets Tough<br /><b>BOOK 5:</b> How To Stop Worrying and Start Living - What Other People Think Of Me Is None Of My Business: Learn Stress Management and How To Overcome Relationship Jealousy, Social Anxiety and Stop Being Insecure<br /><b>BOOK 6:</b> Mindful Eating - A Healthy, Balanced and Compassionate Way To Stop Overeating, How To Lose Weight and Get a Real Taste of Life by Eating Mindfully<br /><b>BOOK 7:</b> Minimalism - How To Declutter, De-Stress And Simplify Your Life With Simple Living<br /><b>BOOK 8:</b> Creative Writing - Learn How to Unleash Your Creative Self<br /><b>BOOK 9:</b> Unlocking One Another - 30 Days To Improving Your Relationship Communication<br /><b>BOOK 10:</b> Pieces of You & Me - How Lovers Complete Each Other<br /><b>BOOK 11:</b> Where Did Our Love Go & Where Do We Go From Here?<br /><b>BOOK 12:</b> The House That Love Built - Unearth The Foundation Of Love And The Fundamental Principles Of What Makes Love Strong Enough To Last A Lifetime<br /><b>BOOK 13:</b> Codependency - How To Cultivate Healthy Relationships and Overcome Relationship Jealousy<br /><b>BOOK 14:</b> When Love Hurts and Everything Turns to SH#T<br /><b>BOOK 15:</b> Rethinking Budgeting - How to Escape the Poverty Mindset and Create a Lifestyle That Works for You<br /><b>BOOK 16:</b> The Minimalist Budget - A Practical Guide On How To Save Money, Spend Less And Live More With A Minimalist Lifestyle<br /><b>BOOK 17:</b> Dollars & No Sense - Why Are You Spending Your Money Like An Idiot?<br /><br /><h1><b><i>Grab your copy today of this LIMITED EDITION boxed set before the price goes up!</i></b></h1>
