Drawing on the mythology of the Green Man and the power of nature, Neil Gaiman, Jane Yolen, and others serve up “a tasty treat for fantasy fans” (Booklist). There are some “genuine gems” in this “enticing collection” of fifteen stories and three poems, all featuring “diverse takes on mythical beings associated with the protection of the natural world,” most involving a teen’s coming-of-age. Delia Sherman “takes readers into New York City’s Central Park, where a teenager wins the favor of the park’s Green Queen.” Michael Cadnum offers a “dynamic retelling of the Daphne story.” Charles de Lint presents an “eerie, heartwarming story in which a teenager resists the lure” of the faerie world. Tanith Lee roots her tale in “the myth of Dionysus, a god of the Wild Wood.” Patricia A. McKillip steeps her story in “the legend of Herne, guardian of the forest. Magic realism flavors Katherine Vaz’s haunting story. Gregory Maguire takes on Jack and the Beanstalk, and Emma Bull looks to an unusual Green Man—a Joshua tree in the desert” (Booklist). These enduring works of eco-fantasy by some of the genre’s most popular authors impart “a real sense of how powerful nature can be in its various guises” (School Library Journal). “A treasure trove for teens and teachers exploring themes of ecology and folklore.” —Kirkus Reviews “The stories are well-written and manage to speak to both the intellect and the emotions.” —SF Site

Enjoy these stand-alone short stories about a boy growing up in an Idaho farm town in mid-century. See how that town influenced its younger citizens and prepared them for life outside of its influence. Enjoy the humor, love and attitude that could only have come from small-town America during an era that is no more. It was a time before animals had rights-before anything political was correct-and before thick skins became thin. It was a time of slide rules, hula-hoops, and church keys. It was a time when candy bars were big and the national debt was small. It was a time when first date, first kiss, and first time occurred on three different nights. Close your eyes and pick a story or read them in order. Jog your memory or make a new one. It doesn't matter. These stories will move you!
