In this clever take on the traditional “Night Before Christmas” poem, a Texas Longhorn believes that he can guide Santa’s sleigh just as well as any reindeer. If a reindeer can fly, Willy believes a longhorn can, too. Despite the doubts of the other cattle, Willy will not give up on his dream.
A man of complex dichotomy, Gen. Robert E. Lee, leader of the Confederate States Army, was also a devout Christian, devoted husband, and father of seven. Lee’s opinions on life, family and children, women, politics, Yankees, and war are collected here, many taken from his personal letters. Paperback.
In this cleverly spooky parody of Clement C. Moore’s famous Christmas poem, the witches are up to their elbows in cobwebs and slime, making sure their witchlings are well prepared for their first Halloween.
“Those children must get rid of that animal. Our wild brother, the wolf, does not change his nature. Can’t you see that the animal is part wolf?” the medicine man warned Cub’s parents. But Cub knew his pet better than anyone. He knew that even though Wolf was half wild, he was not a dangerous animal, and would never turn on those he loved. Cub’s parents had a different idea, however. They trusted the old medicine man’s intuition, and besides, food was scarce—too scarce to have a dog to feed around the house. Paperback.
Against the odds, women sought out pilots who would give them flying lessons. Many, like Harriet Quimby, Matilde Moisant, Amelia Earhart, Emily Warner, Sally Ride, and others, demonstrated that women have the skills, courage, and determination to fly. Hardcover.
The Civil War is rarely shown through a young southern woman’s perspective. Many of these women were displaced from their homes and lived their lives on the run from Northern shellfire. Sarah Morgan was one of those women. She was only 20 years old when the North took over her hometown of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, but she wrote about her experiences in her diaries with insight and clarity well beyond her years. Paperback.
