With a Colt in her purse and a price on her head, Calamity Jane was fair game for every bounty hunter in the Territory--until she hooked up with the Floating Outfit's "best-dressed man," Mark Counter, the segundo of the Rio Hondo Gun Wizard himself. Counter was a man to be reckoned with. A man whose second name was trouble!
Silvery tones of a scented garden designed for moonlight can add new dimensions to summer evenings on your patio. And careful choices of herbs can yield shades of burnished bronzes and mauves in the garden throughout the rigors of winter. These are just two samples of the information contained in more than fifty plans for novice and professional gardener alike. Herbs are already well known for their abilities to flavor, scent, dye, and medicate; in addition, when properly integrated with their surroundings they can greatly enhance the landscape. The plans offered here represent a wide range of possibilities--historic and private, large and small, modest and elaborate--that are easily adapted to one's needs. Designs created by landscape architects and members of the Herb Society of America were redrafted especially for this book. Each plan offers dimensions, structural details for paths, walls, hedges, and decorating elements in addition to full commentary and a plant list. A selection of the Garden Book Club and the Architects and Planners Book Club.
Relativamente ampia raccolta di racconti brevi, opera prima, "24 Racconti" è il frutto pretenzioso dell'attività giovanile dell'autore, focalizzata in particolare sui temi dell'inettitudine alla vita e all' amore, l'incomunicabilità, la solitudine, i meccanismi di repressione socio-individuale, l'inesorabilità della morte e il significato dell'immortalità. Da segnalare, fra gli altri, due testi: "Davanti a una tela di Rembrandt", che indaga il significato della legge e, in senso più ampio, dell'esistenza dell' individuo nel contesto dei suoi simili, e "L'eden", la storia di un'iniziazione e, forse, di una caduta. Altri racconti esemplari: "Il postulante", "Il carceriere" e "Indiani".
In the tradition of O. Henry's "The Gift of the Magi," the seven stories in this collection capture that special time of the year when people become larger than themselves, when the atmosphere crackles with anticipation, when miracles do happen. Based on the author's memories of Christmases in 1950s through 1970s Canada, the stories all in one way or another evoke nostalgic reminiscences of home and family. Each story is richly complemented by an original, full-page Tim Steven illustration.
