This second volume of Tales of the West Highlands contains thirty ursgeuln, or tales, fifty riddles plus a few extra stories. As always, these are tales and stories in which something 'Fairy' or magical occurs, something extraordinary --fairies, giants, dwarfs, princes, princesses, kings and queens, speaking animals and the remarkable stupidity of some of the characters. But these aren't just a collection of amusing and entertaining stories. Just 20 years after the Elementary Education Act of 1870 these are the tales that were still being used in those far- flung reaches of the Highlands to teach the young the lessons of life. Also included are Seanachas--those old Highland stories which in their telling resemble no others, whose origins are lost in the mists of the Highlands, if not the midst of time. So take some time out and travel back to a period before television and radio, a time when tales were passed on orally-- at the drying kilns, at the communal well or in homes, where families would gather around a crackling and spitting hearth and granddad or grandma or uncle or auntie would delight and captivate the gathering with stories passed on to them from their parents and grandparents from time immemorial. A proportion of the profit from the sale of this book will be donated towards the education of the underprivileged in Scotland.

Asia In The Making Of Europe Volume I

Praised for its scope and depth, Asia in the Making of Europe is the first comprehensive study of Asian influences on Western culture. For volumes I and II, the author has sifted through virtually every European reference to Asia published in the sixteenth-century; he surveys a vast array of writings describing Asian life and society, the images of Asia that emerge from those writings, and, in turn, the reflections of those images in European literature and art. This monumental achievement reveals profound and pervasive influences of Asian societies on developing Western culture; in doing so, it provides a perspective necessary for a balanced view of world history. Volume I: The Century of Discovery brings together "everything that a European could know of India, Southeast Asia, China, and Japan, from printed books, missionary reports, traders' accounts and maps" (The New York Review of Books). Volume II: A Century of Wonder examines the influence of that vast new body of information about Asia on the arts, institutions, literatures, and ideas of sixteenth-century Europe.

Mary Elizabeth’s story begins at the kitchen table where she loves to have tea parties. As she pours from a fragile china pot, she listens to her mother tell cherished tales about her Grandma Mary Rose who was known for making the flakiest pie crust in all of Jersey City, using her red-handled wooden rolling pin. Through stories of her grandmother’s knack for baking, Mary recognizes a strong connection through her own childhood concoctions that include Irish shortbread. After Mary matures, marries, and has children of her own, she recognizes the lure of the kitchen and its importance in family relationships that span four generations as she gently guides her daughter’s hands that hold the worn red handles of her grandmother’s rolling pin. Our Red-Handled Rolling Pin shares a poignant story for children, that reflects on heartfelt memories and a grandmother’s love of baking to encourage little ones to carry on family traditions in the kitchen.
