<div>Blending historical fact and classical myth, the author of Zorba the Greek and The Last Temptation of Christ transports the r...eader 3,000 years into the past, to a pivotal point in history: the final days before the ancient kingdom of Minoan Crete is to be conquered and supplanted by the emerging city-state of Athens. Translated by Theodora Vasils and Themi Vasils.<BR> <br> The familiar figures who peopled that ancient world -- King Minos, Theseus and Ariadne, the Minotaur, Diadalos and Ikaros -- fill the pages of this novel with lifelike immediacy.<BR> <br> Written originally for an Athenian youth periodical, <I>At the Palaces of Knossos</i> functions on several levels. Fundamentally, it is a gripping and vivid adventure story, recounted by one of this century's greatest storytellers, and peopled with freshly interpreted figures of classical Greek mythology. We see a new vision of the Minotaur, portrayed here as a bloated and sickly green monster, as much to be pitied as dreaded. And we see a grief-stricken and embittered Diadalos stomping on the homemade wax wings that have caused the drowning of his son, Ikaros.<BR> <br> On another level, <I>At the Palaces of Knossos</i> is an allegory of history, showing the supplanting of a primitive culture by a more modern civilization. Shifting the setting back and forth from Crete to Athens, Kazantzakis contrasts the languid, decaying life of the court of King Minos with the youth and vigor of the newly emerging Athens.<BR> <br> Protected by bronze swords, by ancient magic and ritual, and by ferocious-but-no-longer-invincible monsters, the kingdom of Crete represents the world that must perish if classical Greek civilization is to emerge into its golden age of reason and science. In the cataclysmic final scene in which the Minotaur is killed and King Minos's sumptuous palace burned, Kazantzakis dramatizes the death of the Bronze Age, with its monsters and totems, and the birth of the Age of Iron.</div> Read More

Germany began developing its heavy armored cars well before the outbreak of World War II. Germany s early six-wheel armored cars w...ere based on 6x4 truck chassis, and their off-road mobility was limited. These vehicles soon gave way to an expanding series of eight-wheel drive/eight-wheel steer vehicles fitted with a variety of armament. In time these too were supplanted by even larger armored cars incorporating refinements based on lessons learned from the vehicles field experience, such as heavier armor, armament, and an air-cooled engine. Packed with more than 220 period photographs, this book chronicles the development and deployment of Germany's six and eight-wheeled armored cars before and during WWII. Read More

The great mystery of death and what happens when we die is perplexing for adults, but is even more bewildering for children. This provides an understanding of death and salvation, the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick, and the Last Viaticum, and presents it in such a way that children and their parents will cherish. In the story section, Danny, a young boy, becomes enraged when he has to give up his room so Grandpa Vernon can come to live with the Walsh family. In no time Grandpa is able to win over the hearts of Danny and his siblings with tales of his sailing adventures and how Grandma loved the thought of going to heaven. When a playmate passes away, Grandpa Vernon, with loving patience, teaches the children about death, meeting Jesus, and becoming saints. Later the children are able to use their faith and knowledge to deal with Grandpa s eventual decline and death. The truth is comforting! Some Final Things follows the story and includes prayers for the sick and dying, Biblical support of judgment and purgatory, customs observed by other religions, and a very useful glossary of terms. Also included is a place for creating A Memorial for My Loved One. Read More

In the delightful book, Onward is Best, A Christmas Journey, the story's main character, Dolly, a small wooden toy doll with wild,... red hair, is afraid to go to a strange child's home on Christmas where she may, or may not be loved. She would rather stay with Santa at the North Pole where she knows she is cared for. As she is about to be led with the other toys into the Wrapping Room she escapes into the night where she plans to hide through Christmas. Santa would then certainly allow her to stay. Yet she soon gets lost in the snowy landscape, jumps through a hole in the night and begins a series of adventures with a group of odd, new friends. It calls to mind The Wizard of Oz Series as well as Alice in Wonderland. Dolly's own journey takes her from Santa's Workshop through Paper Land, Popcorn Land, Metal Land, Teddy Bear Land, Wood Land and Desolation Land. The full color illustrations for this read-aloud tale feature a series of meticulously detailed, 3D sets, each a handmade miniature landscape crafted from vintage and found varieties of paper, wood, metal and fabric, as well as popcorn and natural materials. With Onward is Best, young children can explore these enchanting sets while the story is being read to them. Readers experience Dolly's foolishness, bravery, loyalty, and risk-taking as she learns to count on others to help her push through the unknown. To craft her Yuletide tale, Linquist drew upon her childhood. "Growing up in Chicago", she wrote, "I was treated to an annual December trip downtown to see the Christmas windows at Marshall Fields. I have a vivid memory of plastering my face to the cold glass and blocking out all of the world with my hands until I was IN the enchanted, sparkly world the window designer had created". With Onward is Best: A Christmas Journey, Ms. Linquist has created equally enchanting worlds for today s children to explore. Read More
