Close Range: Wyoming Stories by Annie Proulx
Close Range: Wyoming Stories

Margie, April 14, 2015

I am not sure what all the hoopla is for this author. After the first story, I wanted to stop reading the book but am one of those people who had to read it all. Her wordy descriptions made me think of writing an essay where you had to have at least 1000 words before the teacher would accept it. Instead of stories, I felt like she was simply giving descriptions. I assume she is writing for the so called "intellectual" and though I am not stupid, when reading fiction I like stories with content and an ending. You know, old school. So many of her stories were just left hanging. In other words, I am glad I got this book for a buck at a library sale and did not waste more money on it.

Advanced Civilizations of Prehistoric America: The Lost Kingdoms of the Adena, Hopewell, Mississippians, and Anasazi by Frank Joseph
Advanced Civilizations of Prehistoric America: The Lost Kingdoms of the Adena, Hopewell, Mississippians, and Anasazi

If you wonder about the pre-history of America, particularly the United States, you might want to consider reading this book. It is a very interesting read and has numerous photographs and drawings illustrating some of what you are reading about. My biggest problem with the book is how angry I get at the descriptions of wanton destruction of historic mounds and other structures, even into the 20th century.

King's Mountain (Ballad Novels) by Sharyn Mccrumb
King's Mountain (Ballad Novels)

Margie, November 20, 2014

Usually with Ms. McCrumb's books I get enthralled in the story right away. This one I had to slog through. The writing was not as flowing and seemed really stilted at times, but once I got into the story I enjoyed the premise; I just did not get engaged in the story and with the characters like I usually do with her books.

Dreamgates: Exploring the Worlds of Soul, Imagination, and Life Beyond Death by Robert Moss
Dreamgates: Exploring the Worlds of Soul, Imagination, and Life Beyond Death

Margie, October 21, 2014

If you have vivid dreams you think are just that, dreams, then you should read this book. You will never look at dreaming the same way again and will become interested in recording every nuance of your dreams. You may even find parts of yourself you never knew you lost. Read, Learn, Practice, Dream.
