by Jeanne White Eagle
Jeanne White Eagle’s book, Grace, is an exploration of the questions, “How is the horror of betrayal from those one has so deeply trusted, even possible? And how then, do relationships (friends, relatives, countries) so split apart, heal?”
These questions are awakened on a trip Jeanne and her husband John Pehrson take to Bosnia in 2007. She encounters the victims of the war and their stories first hand.
Not long after her time in Bosnia, haunted by questions brought on by what she had seen and heard, Jeanne herself goes through an encounter of personal betrayal of devastating proportions. In her journey to heal she wrestles with confusion, suppressed emotions of anger and feelings of depression, including the constant struggle of self examination. She soon comes to realize that her own experience carries the answers she has been searching for to the questions born in Bosnia.

The Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung is well known as the father of analytical psychology, the developer of the concept of the archetype, and the genius who understood the relevance of alchemy to psychology. Less well known is that Jung was also the coiner of the phrase “New Age,” and a pioneer in preparing for what he called the “Age of Aquarius.”
by Susan Mehrtens, Ph.D.
Many people know Carl Jung as the father of analytical psychology and the developer of the concept of the archetype. Less well-known is that Jung coined the phrase “New Age” and pioneered in preparing people for what he called the “Age of Aquarius.” But how many people really know Jung the man, the human being, husband, father and friend? The human side of Jung has often been forgotten in the focus we put on his ideas, concepts and psychology.
This succinct biography presents a vivid picture of Jung via:
~ a short synopsis of life
~ a portrait of the man through his likes and dislikes, hobbies and interests
~ an assessment of his type and personality
~ an analysis of his shadow side and his complexes
~ an image of Jung at home, as husband and father
~ Jung, the “ladies’ man,” surrounded by his “Valkyries”

Over the Alps on a Bicycle, the Pennells' final cycle-travelogue, was published in 1898 and documented their journey through some of the highest alpine passes in Europe.

From the Editor's Preface:
Number Nip may be a name unfamiliar to most, but his character originates from pagan times and has been the subject of countless legends and fairytales. Often called Rübezahl in German folklore, he was first mentioned in print in a 1565 poem by Franz von Koeckritz titled Ribicinia. Stories about Rübezahl were written down throughout the 17th Century, and in the 18th Century, Musäus collected five of these tales in his Legenden vom Rübezahl. It is from Musäus’ work that Mark Lemon adapted this collection of “legends,” giving the German Gnome the moniker Number Nip.

Forgotten Fairytales Volume 1: Chronicles of the Three Sisters
Chronicles of the Three Sisters is a tale unfamiliar to most readers today. It is, however, in good company with other classic fairytales such as Cinderella, Repunzel, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty. These stories were published together in The Pentamero by Giambattista Basile in 1636. Though Basile recorded and produced the earliest known publication of The Three Sisters (then titled The Three Animal Kings), it has been around for generations prior to Basile, handed down orally in ancient places like Crete and Venice. The story was continuously adapted by the likes of Musäus, Perrault, the Brothers Grimm and, eventually, this version penned by Mark Lemon and illustrated by Charles H. Bennett in 1868.
