The Wild Hunt roams unchecked, taking who and what it will, and the walls between the human world and the world of the sidhe are thinning rapidly. Jeremy Gallow is the only hope of human and sidhe both. But all Gallow wants to do is find Robin Ragged . . . and survive. Unfortunately, everyone who meets him has other plans. Including the Ragged, who is fleeing for her life - and the King of Unwinter, whose poisoned blade has cut deep into Jeremy's flesh . . .

This book comprises a collection of popular folk stories from Guyana and other countries of the Caribbean region. The starring character in all of them is Nansi whose exploits form part of the folklore of these countries. "Nansi", the starring character in all the stories, is also popularly known as "Anansi". But in Guyana and some other Caribbean countries, Nansi, the shortened form of this name, is usually preferred. Nansi, who is a spider but who sometimes takes the qualities or form of a man, or even half-man and half-spider is originally the chief trickster among the Ashanti and Akan peoples of West Africa. When some of these peoples were forcibly brought to the Caribbean and the American continent as slaves from the sixteenth to the nineteenth centuries, they also brought with them the tales of the exploits of Nansi, who was, and still is, variably regarded as a folk hero, a cunning trickster and also sometimes as a fool. The stories in this book are no different to the ones told in West Africa or other parts of the Caribbean and the south-east United States, even though the plots and the characters involved may vary slightly. They certainly provide tangible evidence that much of the oral traditions of people of African origin in the Americas remain intact, despite the historical trauma caused by centuries of slavery. Nansi is always outwitting the forest creatures, humans, his own family, the community in which he lives, and sometimes even deities. His character assumes various patterns. In some cases he is regarded as wise, but he can be greedy, cunning, gluttonous, stupid and dishonest. Despite these varying characteristics, Nansi is generally admired for the manner in which he outwits others. In Guyana and other countries of the English-speaking Caribbean, particularly in rural areas, the exploits of Nansi are related by older people as a form of entertainment at wakes and other community gatherings. The stories are now no longer exclusive to people of West African ancestry, since people of all ethnic origins in the these countries regard Nansi as their folk hero as well. Interestingly, all stories told at these informal community gatherings are regarded as "Nansi stories" even though Nansi may not be a character in any of them. The tales of Nansi are very imaginative and they are so embedded in the minds of people of Guyana and the Caribbean that sometimes any story that is far-fetched and hard to believe is dismissed as a "Nansi story."

It has been said many times that photography is painting with light, or that photography is all about light. For Jeanine Leech, the idea of painting with light is a passion. She uses it as a brush for color, texture, and dimension to create dynamic and expressive images. In this book, Leech details her techniques for finding and using the best light to create breathtaking landscape images. To get that special moment, you are often chasing the light. In landscape photography there are moments of defining light. It can be a single moment that may only last a second when the light is just perfect. These moments don’t happen every day but when they do one frame can tell the story with more visual impact than all the others. The ability to improvise, to stop and get the light when these moments occur randomly, is the difference between producing a standard photo and something that truly stand out. This book provides the basic principles of photography necessary for capturing this magic successfully. Starting with a rundown of the equipment that Leech uses and explaining the core concepts of photography, the book proceeds to detail shooting at different times of day. From the first light at dawn, through midday and onto dusk, Leech provides stunning examples of how each type of light can be used. Each photo in the book is accompanied by the camera settings used to capture it. True magic light is rare. It happens in a fleeting moment, not to be repeated again, lasting only a few minutes or seconds. Its quality is so unique that it changes the color, appearance and ultimately the mood of the subjects it falls upon. Part three of the book focuses on the different types of landscapes. First weather is covered. A photo shoot in the Smoky Mountains shows how attention to detail and setting can make the shot. The light and the weather change in mere seconds. As Leech points out, knowing the basics of photography and how to work your equipment quickly is essential. Each of the stunning photos in the book is a testament to this. After that Leach discusses how she chooses different landscapes. Intimate landscapes can be found anywhere. Sometimes making artistic choices like only focusing on a small portion of a setting provides an image with greater impact. Finally, the book covers the use of polarizer’s, various filters and multiple digital darkroom techniques.
