Explanation of the Book:

A New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller – What happened that night on Dead Mountain? The mystery of Dead Mountain: In February 1959, a group of nine experienced hikers in the Russian Ural Mountains died mysteriously on an elevation known as Dead Mountain. Eerie aspects of the incident—unexplained violent injuries, signs that they cut open and fled the tent without proper clothing or shoes, a strange final photograph taken by one of the hikers, and elevated levels of radiation found on some of their clothes—have led to decades of speculation over what really happened. As gripping and bizarre as Hunt for the Skin Walker: This New York Times bestseller, Dead Mountain: The Untold True Story of the Dyatlov Pass Incident, is a gripping work of literary nonfiction that delves into the mystery of Dead Mountain through unprecedented access to the hikers' own journals and photographs, rarely seen government records, dozens of interviews, and the author's retracing of the hikers' fateful journey in the Russian winter. You'll love this real-life tale: Dead Mountain is a fascinating portrait of young adventurers in the Soviet era, and a skillful interweaving of the hikers' narrative, the investigators' efforts, and the author's investigations. Here for the first time is the real story of what happened that night on Dead Mountain.

Explanation of the Book:

The Dyatlov Pass incident resulted in nine unsolved, mysterious deaths; Keith McCloskey attempts to decipher the bizzare events that led up to that night and the subsequent aftermathIn January 1959, 10 experienced young skiers set out to travel to a mountain named Mount Otorten in the far north of Russia. Otorten translates to "don't go there" in the local Mansi language. During the trip, one of the skiers fell ill and returned. The remaining nine lost their way and ended up on another mountain slope known as Kholat Syakhl, or "Mountain of the Dead." On the night of February 1, 1959, something or someone caused the skiers to flee their tent in terror, using knives to slash their way out instead of using the entrance. When they failed to return home, search parties were sent out and their bodies were found, some with massive internal injuries but all without external marks. The autopsy report showed that the injuries were caused by "an unknown compelling force." Subsequently, the area was sealed off for years by the authorities and the deaths and events of that night remained unexplained. Benefiting from original research carried out in Russia, this book attempts to explain what happened to the nine skiers who lost their lives in what has come to be known as the "Dyatlov Pass Incident."

Explanation of the Book:

The Trek tells the story of David Schachne's adventure in November, 2004, attempting to summit Kala Patthar, a mountain which towers above Everest Base Camp in the Himalayas. At 18,192 feet above sea level, the summit of Kala Patthar offers successful climbers one of the most amazing views of Mount Everest (29,035 feet) without having to put your life at risk by entering the Khumbu Icefall, or by climbing Mount Lhotse or Mount Nuptse. Raised in Brooklyn, NY, Schachne loved visiting the great outdoors as a teenager, going camping and hiking in the Catskills and Adirondacks. Throughout his early adult life, he had a burning desire to go trekking in the Himalayas. He believed going there would make his life more fulfilled. Schachne certainly didn't expect his trek to be a "walk in the park", but he was ill-prepared for what was in store for him. Climbing for hours and hours each day while mentally and physically exhausted; confronting sub-freezing temperatures; dealing with illness, high altitude sickness, piercing headaches, wretched odors, utter filth, bacterial infections, dysentery and more, he endured two weeks of pure, nightmarish misery. In this riveting account of his gut-wrenching trek over fourteen sleepless days and nights, while malnourished, Schachne takes you along on each and every step of his journey. You'll experience the ups and downs of the hills and valleys, and the highs and lows of his personal triumphs and chaotic travails. He flies from Kathmandu in Nepal to the most dangerous airport in the world (Tenzing Hillary Airport), in a town called Lukla, then hikes to Phadking and Namche Bazaar, a virtual flea market at 11,000 feet, then Thyangboche Monastery and then Dingboche, Dzugla, Lobuche and Gorak Shep, before finally attempting the summit. Schachne reveals what originally led him to fall in love with nature, why he was so determined to go to the Himalayas, and why he persevered despite the brutal bodily punishment he experienced. Join Schachne for the most entertaining adventure of your life, as he takes you along on this thrilling, harrowing and laugh and cry-out-loud journey.

Explanation of the Book:

Who among us hasn't treasured memories of yesteryear told to us by our 'elders'? Aleta Miller has gathered vignettes and woven them into a tapestry of life in a Sierra Gold Rush mining town exotically named Port Wine (near Whiskey Diggins and Poker Flat). She has captured the essence of California's pioneer spirit, mining nuggets of real life stories that lay buried under yesteryear's journalism: Two story deep snowdrifts compete with a mountain visitor in a Locomobile. Civil War politics blend in with birth pains of the new California statehood. Downhill ski races lift spirits of beleaguered residents of Port Wine and La Porte, also known as Rabbit Creek. Uncontrollable fires gut reconstructed towns with diabolical regularity. In addition, we meet colorful characters who have touched the hills including Black Bart, Dutch Kate, Bret Harte, the Blue Lake Monster and Sasquatch. There is something for everyone in this delightful read. Aleta Farren Miller, as a young girl, became enamored of California gold country history during occasional visits to the Davis Motor Mine. The mine tunneled into a mountainside within a mile of Port Wine, CA. It was operated by Aleta's cousins Fred and Durward Davis and produced a modest quantity of gold. Aleta was enchanted by the remoteness of the location as well as by the surroundings which have changed very little over the last 100 years. Passing encounters with "old timers" and whimsical poetry adorning grave sites in the Pioneer Cemetery stimulated a growing interest. Many of her relatives and even a pet parrot are buried there. With the help of her mother, Rilla Farren Cross, other family members, the archives of Bancroft Library at U.C. Berkeley, and The Mountain Messenger Newspaper at Downieville, CA, the interest culminated in Aleta investing almost a decade undertaking this collection of what now may be classified as journalistic memorabilia. We are indebted to her instinctive ability to sort out and preserve this remarkable collection of memories. Her own background and personal experiences make her uniquely capable of understanding and synthesizing the insight that she gained from that time in California history.

Explanation of the Book:

I do not remember, in all her novels, an instance of gross misery of any kind not directly caused by the folly of the sufferer. There are no pictures of vice or poverty or squalor. There are no rags, no gin, no brutal passions. That average humanity which she favours is very borné in intellect, but very genial in heart, as a glance at its repre-sentatives in her pages will convince us. In Adam Bede, there is Mr. Irwine, the vicar, with avowedly no qualifica-tion for his profession, placidly playing chess with his mother, stroking his dogs, and dipping into Greek trage-dies; there is the excellent Martin Poyser at the Farm, good-natured and rubicund; there is his wife, somewhat too sharply voluble, but only in behalf of cleanliness and honesty and order; there is Captain Donnithorne at the Hall, who does a poor girl a mortal wrong, but who is, af-ter all, such a nice, good-looking fellow; there are Adam and Seth Bede, the carpenter's sons, the strongest, purest, most discreet of young rustics.

Explanation of the Book:

Agafya is a short story by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov detailing a late night encounter between an intelligent but lazy village dropout and the peasant wife of a signalman. Anton Pavlovich Chekhov, (29 January 1860 - 15 July 1904) was a Russian physician, dramaturge and author who is considered to be among the greatest writers of short stories in history. His career as a dramatist produced four classics and his best short stories are held in high esteem by writers and critics. Chekhov practised as a medical doctor throughout most of his literary career: "Medicine is my lawful wife", he once said, "and literature is my mistress." Chekhov renounced the theatre after the disastrous reception of The Seagull in 1896, but the play was revived to acclaim in 1898 by Constantin Stanislavski's Moscow Art Theatre, which subsequently also produced Chekhov's Uncle Vanya and premiered his last two plays, Three Sisters and The Cherry Orchard. These four works present a challenge to the acting ensemble as well as to audiences, because in place of conventional action Chekhov offers a "theatre of mood" and a "submerged life in the text." Chekhov had at first written stories only for financial gain, but as his artistic ambition grew, he made formal innovations which have influenced the evolution of the modern short story. His originality consists in an early use of the stream-of-consciousness technique, later adopted by James Joyce and other modernists, combined with a disavowal of the moral finality of traditional story structure. He made no apologies for the difficulties this posed to readers, insisting that the role of an artist was to ask questions, not to answer them. Always modest, Chekhov could hardly have imagined the extent of his posthumous reputation. The ovations for the play, The Cherry Orchard, in the year of his death showed him how high he had risen in the affection of the Russian public-by then he was second in literary celebrity only to Tolstoy, who outlived him by six years-but after his death, Chekhov's fame soon spread further afield. Constance Garnett's translations won him an English-language readership and the admiration of writers such as James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, and Katherine Mansfield. The issues surrounding the close similarities between Mansfield's 1910 story "The Child Who Was Tired" and Chekhov's "Sleepy" are summarised in William H. New's Reading Mansfield and Metaphors of Reform The Russian critic D.S. Mirsky, who lived in England, explained Chekhov's popularity in that country by his "unusually complete rejection of what we may call the heroic values." In Russia itself, Chekhov's drama fell out of fashion after the revolution but was later adapted to the Soviet agenda, with the character Lopakhin, for example, reinvented as a hero of the new order, taking an axe to the cherry orchard. One of the first non-Russians to praise Chekhov's plays was George Bernard Shaw, who subtitled his Heartbreak House "A Fantasia in the Russian Manner on English Themes" and noted similarities between the predicament of the British landed class and that of their Russian counterparts as depicted by Chekhov: "the same nice people, the same utter futility."

Mohoma, a courtier of King Shantanu's kingdom, whose legacy had a role to play in the Mahabharata war. How his family was cursed, divided in taking sides between the two; Kauravas and Pandavas. But the land of Mohoma is nowhere mentioned in the depths of time. This is the story of that family who went through turmoil because of someone else's war, in the war of their master's rivalry, and how they and the progeny of the two great armies viewed the entire war. After all, were the Pandavas really correct? Were the Kauravas so wrong in what they did?"

Explanation of the Book:

Fact: In February, 1959, nine Russian college students embarked on a 10 day skiing expedition into the Ural Mountains. They never returned and were later found dead of disturbing and mysterious causes. These events are now simply known as the Dyatlov Pass Incident, named after the leader of the ill fated team, Igor Dyatlov. Because of the nature of the deaths, a criminal inquest was filed. As the facts developed, the circumstances and causes of death became more confusing and baffling, with each new discovery.Even after a half century, no adequate explanation has ever been offered explaining the deaths. The official verdict, registered in 1959, stills stands, “death by unknown compelling force,” a vague and unsatisfying explanation for a scene of endless questions and unknown events that lead to 9 inexplicable and ultimately, horrific deaths. To this day, no one was ever charged with a crime. A tribe of indigenous people, known as the Mansi, have lived in the vast Ural Mountains for centuries. The Mansi feared the mountain where the students had all died. The Mansi name for the mountain is Kholat Syakhl which translates to, the mountain of the dead.A stone monument with the pictures of the nine now sits as a mute testimony at the mouth of the now infamous pass. Mountain of the Dead is the fictionalized story of the events of that year by writer, director Mike Wellins.

Explanation of the Book:

THE LEMON DAY was inspired to me from my three-year-old, Kelly, as to how she pronounced "Lemon-aid" . I made a list of those slightly different ways that she pronounced things and worked a rhyming story around it. Basically, there is a grumpy, not too kind, character who is in a sense a bully. He gets put in his place by the other, kind, characters in the story and has a change of heart. It is a children's story, but I find it to send a positive message to all ages, with the main point being "it's OK to be different, choosing acceptance and above all to always keep the imagination alive!" I dedicated it to my Mother, SuzanneTHE LEMON DAY is a cute, fun and wonderful book.
