Assembled by award-winning community college teacher and distinguished world historian Kevin Reilly, the documents in the best-selling "Worlds of History" bring history alive for students.
Students read voices from the distant and more recent past that address topics and issues -- like patriarchy, love and marriage, and imperialism -- of enduring interest and relevance. Ranging widely across regions and cultures, each chapter takes up a major theme and asks students to examine it in the context of two or more cultures, encouraging them to make cross-cultural connections and comparisons.
The flexible comparative and thematic framework easily accommodates the variety of approaches instructors bring to teaching world history while supporting the general goal of cultivating critical thinking skills.

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.
47 Houses on the Long Journey Home is a big story; a story of love and adventure spanning decades and continents. Two young people set out on a search that takes them from America's midwest to Hong Kong's Suzy Wong area, from life as sheltered expats to living in an old fishing village on the South China Sea and aboard an ocean-going junk in a typhoon shelter, speaking Chinese.
Why? Not even they seem to know. Deeper than the apparent reasons there is a keen longing to delve into life, to find that basic root of what it means to be human. The De Prees and their four children always plan to come back to a li le town in the US - soon...and a fter twenty years in Hong Kong and ten years in the Middle East, gaining new understandings of culture and art, they finally make it. On a chance trip to the mountains of North Carolina they fall in love with a big blue mountain, a creek, and a whole community of artists, singers and warm-hearted people - And house number 47, which finally becomes home.
Lenore De Pree comes from strong Dutch stock in Chicago, was raised in the back hills of Appalachian Kentucky where her parents took in 90 home children, and has been trying to tie worlds together ever since.
Now that her worlds include Chinese and Arabian cultures, the scope has expanded. De Pree alternates between writing and oil painting, searching between colors and words to express a deep-felt response to life.
She has published books in New York and in the midwest. Life now consists of working with husband Gordon in an art gallery in West Jefferson, North Carolina, high up in the Blue Ridge mountains- and enjoying their grown children and grandchildren.
