Now the subject of major Disney film starring Ewan McGregor, this is Christopher Robin in his own words. Millions of readers throughout the world have grown up with the stories and verses of A. A. Milne; have envied Christopher Robin in his enchanted world; laughed at Pooh - a bear of very little brain - and worried about Piglet and his problems. But what was it like to be the small boy with the long hair, smock and wellington boots? At the age of fifty-four Christopher Milne recalled his early childhood, remembering 'the enchanted places' where he used to play in Sussex. The Hundred Acre Wood, Galleon's Lap and Poohsticks Bridge existed not only in the stories and poems but were part of the real world surrounding the Milne home at Cotchford Farm. With deftness and artistry Milne draws a memorable portrait of his father, and an evocative reconstruction of a happy childhood in London and Sussex. The Enchanted Places is a story told with humour and modesty.

Why do so many American college students tell stories about encounters with ghosts? In Haunted Halls, the first book-length interpretive study of college ghostlore, Elizabeth Tucker takes the reader back to school to get acquainted with a wide range of college spirits. Some of the best-known ghosts that she discusses are Emory University\'s Dooley, who can disband classes by shooting professors with his water pistol; Mansfield Uni-versity\'s Sara, who threw herself down a flight of stairs after being rejected by her boyfriend; and Huntingdon College\'s Red Lady, who slit her wrists while dressed in a red robe. Gettysburg College students have collided with ghosts of soldiers, while students at St. Mary-of-the-Woods College have reported frightening glimpses of the Faceless Nun. Tucker presents campus ghostlore from the mid-1960s to 2006, with special attention to stories told by twenty-first-century students through e-mail and instant messages. Her approach combines social, psychological, and cultural analysis, with close attention to students\' own explanations of the significance of spectral phenomena. As metaphors of disorder, insanity, and school spirit, college ghosts convey multiple meanings. Their colorful stories warn students about the dangers of overindulgence, as well as the pitfalls of potentially horrifying relationships. Besides offering insight into students\' initiation into campus life, college ghost stories make important statements about injustices suffered by Native Americans, African Americans, and others.

The need to outgrow one's childhood influences and establish an individual identity is common to us all, but for Christopher Milne it was an especially difficult experience in view of the unique problems he faced as the son of A. A. Milne. In this warm, honest, and often amusing autobiography, he traces the path which, after several wrong turnings, ultimately led him and his wife, Lesley, to establish the successful Harbour Bookshop in Dartmouth - a path which led not to spectacular achievements, but to modest success and contentment. Wise, humble, and philosophical, The Path Through the Trees is Christopher Milne's search as a young man for his own place in life, told with the same sincerity and vividness that distinguished his first book, The Enchanted Places.

A medical memoir “packed with razor-sharp humor . . . the antithesis of a victim’s tale” (Miami Herald). Gail Konop Baker was a runner, yoga practitioner, doctor’s wife, and lifelong subscriber to Prevention magazine. But right before her forty-sixth birthday, she heard the words that would forever change her life: Just to be safe, I think we should biopsy. It was the beginning of her yearlong battle with breast cancer and its fallout—a battle that would upstage any midlife crisis she’d worried was waiting in the wings. Cancer Is a Bitch is her raw, moving, and witty account of juggling midlife, motherhood, and marriage with a rogue boob—and, ultimately, triumphing. It will, as author Lolly Winston says, “crack [you] up one minute, then bring [you] to tears the next.” “Baker takes us along as her life turns upside down in so many ways . . . an honest (and very funny, for the most part) approach to breast cancer.” —Library Journal

Twelve years after Chester Reynolds’ mysterious disappearance from the Bell Tower at the Enchanted College of Oceania (ECO), his fourteen-year-old identical twin daughters, Harper Leigh and Leigh Harper (named in honor of Harper Lee, the author of To Kill A Mockingbird), embark on a magical quest to determine why he was abducted from their relatively quiet hometown of Oceania, Maryland. Harper and Leigh may be identical, but their personalities could not be more different. Harper excels in sports, and her love of skateboarding is matched only by her feelings for her boyfriend, Jeremy Alexander Fletcher, the good-looking, athletic captain of the Lakeshore Preparatory varsity baseball and football teams. Leigh is light-years ahead of her sophomore class in academics and she prefers to spend Saturday afternoons in ballet class rather than at the skate park with Harper. Harper is a natural dare-devil, but Leigh, the more reserved twin, soon discovers that her chats with a stranger called Poem Man on Teen Village prove to be more sinister and dangerous that she could have ever imagined. Lydia Reynolds, the twins’ mother, owns and operates The Enchanted College of Oceania (ECO), a school for children and young adults with Magical Talents and Special Gifts. ECO is housed in an old mansion with a sordid and murderous history; from ghostly sightings of the mansion’s former owners, J.L and Eloise Winthrop, to strange occurrences in classrooms, students have no shortage of surreal tales to tell. Unlike their hopeful mother, the twins aren’t convinced that their father is still alive. Dr. Xavier Montague, the Headmaster of Lakeshore Preparatory, who has plans of his own for Lydia, often quietly thwarts Lydia’s search for Chester. While visiting ECO one afternoon, Harper discovers a rather ominous magic book that details how to reclaim the dead. The twins soon realize that the book’s spells for resurrection involve “soul-napping”, which proves to be quite difficult as ghosts are hard to capture and control. While the twins attempt to bottle spirits, Lydia becomes the legal guardian of a handsome, sixteen-year-old named Lance Meridian, whose parents recently died in a car accident in Washington D.C. The trauma of the event caused Lance to experience hysterical deafness. Despite his grief and solitude, he establishes a friendship with the four peculiar and rarely seen women of Emerson Pond. In Oceania, no one but Lance is brave enough to even venture into their territory, as few are aware of what occurs in their enchanted cottage. The Reynolds twins must balance the paranormal pursuit to find their father, Chester, (which they title “Project C”) with real world drama at The Academy of the Sacred Names, their all-girls Catholic high school. While executing Project C, the girls must also navigate the precarious corridors of high school marked by rigorous academics, the self-proclaimed “Royals” and their arch-nemesis Meredith Ford. The Reynolds girls certainly never have a dull moment and they manage to find romance, danger and adventure in this world and beyond.

A firefighter and a rancher. An executive director of an environmental watch dog group vehemently opposed to ranching. An internationally known actress. Musicians, artists, writers, dancers, activists, students, politicians, veterans -- images of those who have achieved fame or are known to their friends, families and co-workers are compelling and revealing. These are people from all walks of life, backgrounds and beliefs. Each is unique and each one claims the Land of Enchantment as home. In this stunning collection, photographer and writer Daryl Black has now fulfilled a long-term mission to photograph the captivating faces of the state of New Mexico. The mission became a journey that widened into a broad river, fed by a network of human streams. She has driven the highways and back roads, made environmental portraits and listened to surprising life stories. Her black and white photographs combined with the writings of Jack Loeffler, John Nichols, Arthur Sze, Susan Schock, Eric Manolito and Ernie Mills offer a glimpse into the reason why New Mexico is A Place Like No Other.

Immortalized as the author of The Riddle of the Sands, Erskine Childers led a life quite as enigmatic and adventurous as his classic novel. Childers was orphaned at an early age. Though he was brought up in County Wicklow, he received an English education that culminated in a clerkship to the House of Commons, voluntary service in the Boer War, and the writing of his great novel. Thus far he appeared patriotic, imperialist and largely conformist. But marriage to a strong-willed Bostonian and an increasing interest in the affairs of Ireland led to his questioning the imperial Zeitgeist. At first this took constitutional forms, but such was Childers' frustration with progress towards any manner of Irish independence from British rule, that on the eve of the First World War he instigated gun-running to supporters of the Home Rule movement. Nonetheless, he still regarded it as his duty to serve England, and during the war he distinguished himself as an observer in the early seaplanes and torpedo boats. Traumatized, however, by the Easter Rising of 1916, he finished the war profoundly divided in his loyalties. With the Irish question now critical, Childers settled his fate by becoming the official propagandist for the Republican movement. He opposed the treaty that established the Irish Free State, regarding the compromise as anathema, and joined the IRA. Hunted by the Free State authorities, he was eventually captured and executed in November 1922. Set against the backdrop of Britain's imperial zenith, the great naval arms race and the First World War, Jim Ring's acclaimed biography of Childers does full justice to this dramatic and intriguing story. 'Jim Ring has written a fine and fluent biography of an extraordinary man, navigating the angry waters [of Irish politics] with a sure hand but dodging none of the difficulties.'
