With him on his ship Endurance are twenty-eight crew members, sixty-nine sled dogs, a gramophone, a bicycle--and Merce Blackboro, a seventeen-year-old stowaway hidden amidst oilskins and sea boots. Their journey into the ice is by way of the sub-Antarctic island of South Georgia. But the Antarctic summer is short, and their passage remains resolutely closed to them. In the Weddell Sea the Endurance is trapped for months in pack ice and finds itself delivered up to an uncertain fate. Richly imagined and gripping right up the very last page, Ice-Cold Heaven traces Shackleton's legendary and heroic adventure through the ice and explores the relationships between these men who were lost to the world for 635 days.

The Crystal Themes Anthology is a collection of young adult short stories and literary pieces that are inspiring in dramatic confrontations. Readers of all ages will enjoy its compelling messages. It inspires, it gives hope, and it shares a little joy and fun to the kid in all of us. In Prodigy , I started off by saying, "In that triumphant, spiritual journey from Hollywood to Philadelphia, my eyes were cast upon when I entered Pittsburgh that Pearl by the River. Its reflection had shone in the River like the Evening Star. Returning westward from New York, having seen the glory and magnificence of that City, I sang this happy tune that wrongs will be made right, all defeats will be victories, and that some day I will be called Mathematician'." High ideals in the like make this anthology is a worthy read and keeper. Youths of the English-speaking world should embrace the phenomenal far-reaching themes of The Crystal Themes Anthology.

The Future of Ice

This book was written out of Gretel Ehrlich’s love for winter–for remote and cold places, for the ways winter frees our imagination and invigorates our feet, mind, and soul–and also out of the fear that our “democracy of gratification” has irreparably altered the climate. Over the course of a year, Ehrlich experiences firsthand the myriad expressions of cold, giving us marvelous histories of wind, water, snow, and ice, of ocean currents and weather cycles. From Tierra del Fuego in the south to Spitsbergen, east of Greenland, at the very top of the world, she explores how our very consciousness is animated and enlivened by the archaic rhythms and erupting oscillations of weather. We share Ehrlich’s experience of the thrills of cold, but also her questions: What will happen to us if we are “deseasoned”? If winter ends, will we survive?

Deeply involved with Irish culture and history, W. B. Yeats (1865-1939) is one of the greatest poets writing in the last two centuries. This sourcebook provides essential help for readers who wish to learn more about his powerful, haunting poems. Considering Yeats's early, dreamily evocative poems as well as his passionate, tension-ridden later work, Michael O'Neill offers a refreshingly clear discussion of: *contexts - through an invaluable, accessible overview, a detailed chronology and contemporary documents revealing Yeats's understanding of his vocation as a poet; *interpretations - through helpfully introduced extracts from criticism of Yeats's work, ranging from early responses through to modern critical texts; *key poems - in a section where insightful commentary accompanies the full annotated text of many of Yeats's major poems; *further reading - to guide those interested in additional study. This sourcebook is ideal for those new to Yeats's poetry or those who wish to look deeper into its workings, its reception and the contexts from which it emerged.

The poetry of William Butler Yeats presents unusual problems for the general reader. Yeats drew heavily upon mystical and theosophical systems of a more or less arcane nature. Moreover, he often referred to events in his own life and in the history of modem Ireland which require elucidition for the non-specialist. A Reader's Guide to William Butler Yeats not only provides the background needed for an understanding of the works but also reveals the structure of images and meanings of the various lyrics.
