Legends are somewhat deceitful. Leaving no room for sequels. Books never written. Stories never told. Until now. It is the late 1800s, and Paul Cunningham is about to establish himself as one of the most iconic American folklore figures of all time by logging his way through the northern United States. What he doesn't realize is the ruinous cost of his conquest. The Man in the Pines is the reimagined life story of the famous American folk legend, Paul Bunyan. It is a tale of demi-god strength, love lost, hubris, and destruction. It is a story of conservation and, hopefully, redemption. It is the life of Paul Bunyan you've never heard before.

A bold and strikingly original new work from one of America's greatest living poets Alice Notley is considered by many to be among the most outstanding of living American poets. Notley's work has always been highly narrative, and her new book mixes short lyrics with long, expansive lines of poetry that often take the form of prose sentences, in an effort "to change writing completely." The title piece, a folksong-like lament, makes a unified tale out of many stories of many people; the middle section, "The Black Trailor," is a compilation of noir fictions and reflections; while the shorter poems of "Hemostatic" range from tough lyrics to sung dramas. Full of curative power, music, and the possibility of transformation, In the Pines is a genre- bending book from one of our most innovative writers.

Deep in the heart of southern New Jersey lies an area of some 96,000 acres of sprawling wilderness. It is the famous Wharton Tract which the state of New Jersey purchased in 1954 for a watershed, game preserve, and park. Many people know and love these wooded acres. Each year, people by the thousands visit Batsto Village, once the center of the iron industry that thrived on the tract more than a century ago. With warmth and accuracy, Arthur D. Pierce tells the story of the years when iron was king, and around it rose a rustic feudal economy. There were glass factories, paper mills, cotton mills, and brickmaking establishments. Here, too, were men who made those years exciting: Benedict Arnold and his first step toward treason; Chrales Read, who dreamed of an empire and died in exile; Revolutionary heroes and heroines, privateers, and rogues. The author's vivid pictures of day-to-day life in the old iron communities are based upon careful research. This book proves that the human drama of documented history belies any notion that fiction is stranger than truth.

Japanese nõ theatre or the drama of 'perfected art' flourished in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries largely through the genius of the dramatist Zeami. An intricate fusion of music, dance, mask, costume and language, the dramas address many subjects, but the idea of 'form' is more central than 'meaning' and their structure is always ritualized. Selected for their literary merit, the twenty-four plays in this volume dramatize such ideas as the relationship between men and the gods, brother and sister, parent and child, lover and beloved, and the power of greed and desire. Revered in Japan as a cultural treasure, the spiritual and sensuous beauty of these works has been a profound influence for English-speaking artists including W. B. Yeats, Ezra Pound and Benjamin Britten.

Most people think of New Jersey as a suburban-industrial corridor that runs between New York and Philadelphia. Yet in the low center of the state is a near wilderness, larger than most national parks, which has been known since the seventeenth century as the Pine Barrens. The term refers to the predominant trees in the vast forests that cover the area and to the quality of the soils below, which are too sandy and acid to be good for farming. On all sides, however, developments of one kind or another have gradually moved in, so that now the central and integral forest is reduced to about a thousand square miles. Although New Jersey has the heaviest population density of any state, huge segments of the Pine Barrens remain uninhabited. The few people who dwell in the region, the "Pineys," are little known and often misunderstood. Here McPhee uses his uncanny skills as a journalist to explore the history of the region and describe the people—and their distinctive folklore—who call it home.

Danielle Jones loved the scent of the tall pines that surrounded her new home - a log home, nestled in a remote area in East Texas. It seemed the other end of the world from the high society life as a doctor's wife she'd tried to live in Austin. When her marriage disintegrated just after her mom died, Dani grieved for the time she'd lost, then applied for a fellowship at a university in Tyler and picked up the plans she'd set aside to work while her ex-husband finished medical school. Nearly ten years older, and certainly wiser, she was excited about finishing her own schooling and getting her life back on track. Not many women would be excited about a job in a Biology lab, or more precisely a reptile lab. But for Dani, it was part of the package. She wasn't crazy about snakes, but it put her on the fast track to finishing her degree in Zoology. It didn't seem bad until snakes started turning up in places they weren't supposed to be. As Dani gave in to her naturally inquisitive nature, she learned that several years ago her new home had been owned by the man in charge of the Ophidian lab. Worse, some students disappeared out there one day when they were scouting the surrounding area for snakes. Suddenly Dani's new life seemed more filled with dread than with promise. What happened to those students who were never found? And why did Dani have the strange feeling that someone out there was watching her?
