Olsson leads us through the flowering of their unusual and tender friendship, as they slowly and carefully reveal their life histories and sometimes heart-rending pasts.

Description : "Poetic Parables, Songs and Poems from an imperfect pen" is the first attempt at publishing for the author/composer, Vickie L. Detert. With the Lord and his gifts as inspiration, there are many more works waiting their turn to be shared. Their message of faith, forgiveness, strength, hope and love have been blessings to Miss Detert and others. Now, her prayer is to share them with as many as God is willing and she trusts He will guide them through each and every word. An added bonus to the music portion of this book is that each song is presented twice. The first presentation is as melody, chords and lyrics. The second is with a piano accompaniment. In most of the later, you will also find the pieces are written in a slightly lower key, thus giving the singers a choice of range. Miss Vickie L. Detert has been a life-long Christian who has, as most Christians, faced many of life's challenges with her God-given faith being the answer, the hope and the strength she has needed. As far back as she can remember, music and faith have walked hand in hand and so despite being convinced at a young age that writing was not one of her gifts, it was not surprising that in 1978 she began writing and composing pieces reflective of her faith. As a music teacher and church musician, Miss Detert has shared much of her writings with friends, family and local congregations. Now, she hopes the Lord will use this book to reach out and bless all of those who are moved to open it's cover and look within. Her wish is that God use her work to bring others closer to Him as it has done for her.
Description : 'The Poetic Genius of my Country...bade me sing the loves, the joys, the rural scenes and rural pleasures of my natal Soil, in my native tongue.' Many of the poems and songs of Robert Burns (1759-96) are familiar to readers the world over: lyrical, acerbic, comic, bawdy, democratic. They include 'To a Mouse', 'John Anderson my Jo', 'A red red Rose', 'Auld lang syne', 'Tam o 'Shanter' and many more, whose vernacular energy and simple beauty have ensured lasting popularity. This generous new selection offers Burns's work as it was first encountered by contemporary readers, presenting the texts in the contexts in which they were originally published. It reproduces the whole of Poems, chiefly in the Scottish Dialect published at Kilmarnock in 1786, the volume which made Burns famous; and it reunites a generous selection of songs from The Scots Musical Museum and A Select Collection of Scottish Airs with their full scores. Comprehensive notes describe the circumstances in which other poems and songs found their way into print, both before and after the poet's death. The edition also includes some important letters, and a full glossary to explain Scots words.

Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.
Description : This book stresses the importance of living an inspirational life. The book discusses 36 of the best places to find inspirational material, and it shows 155 of my favorite inspirational poems, stories, songs and prayers. I grew up under humble conditions. Since childhood I have used inspirations to live a happy and fulfilling life. It has permitted me to work and to obtain three university degrees without any external financial support, have a very successful 37 year professional career, and a very happy and fulfilling retirement. It permitted me to retire at 60 years old. At the age of 78 years old, I am now looking forward to a new career in book writing with Gods will and inspiration. Everyone needs inspiration to live a happier and more fulfilling life. Inspiration has permitted me to do things that I could not have done otherwise. I can not imagine living a life without inspiration in it. Its a kind of life that I would not want to live. I benefited a lot from writing this book, and I can not wait to have other people read and benefit from the book. In this book I encourage my readers to write their own inspirational books.
Description : Itsik Malpesh was born the son of a goose-plucking factory manager during the Russian pogroms - his life saved on the night it began by the young daughter of a kosher slaughterer. Or so he believes… Exiled during the war, Itsik eventually finds himself in New York, working as a typesetter and writing poetry to his muse, the butcher's daughter, whom he is sure he will never see again. But it is here in New York that Itsik is unexpectedly reunited with his greatest love - and, later, his greatest enemy - with results both serendipitous and tragic. His story is recounted in his memoirs thanks to the most unlikely of translators - a twenty-one-year-old Boston Catholic college student who, in meeting Itsik, has embarked upon a great lie that will define his future and the most extraordinary friendship he'll ever know.
