1 Beck, Kathrine Opal: a Life of Enchantment, Mystery, and Madness
0670031453 / 9780670031450; NEW - In 1920, Americans were captivated by the childhood diary of Opal Whiteley, an enigmatic young woman from a small logging town in the Northwest. The diary, which Whiteley claimed a cruel foster sister had torn to shreds many years before, was painstakingly pasted together before publication. It chronicled Opals adventures in the forests of Oregon at the age of 7 and was hailed as a revelatory portrait of a child's relationship to God and the natural world. Some skeptics dismissed it as a hoax, but others remained convinced. Opal is the story of her legacy and of the many ways she has been perceived. New Age prophet and environmentalist, mad genius, long-lost princess, and flamboyant fraud. It is also the tale of the whirlwind and eccentric life she led on several continents after the diary was published. She enchanted a host of rich, famous and high-born figures. This book is the most complete picture of her life yet, with interviews, personal papers and letters included. 274 pages with 16 pages of photographs. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

The Closest of Strangers, Judge M. D. , James
2 Judge M. D. , James The Closest of Strangers
0849916658 / 9780849916656; SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR - This is a journal of Dr. James Judge, who vowed early in his career to be a different kind of doctor than his medical training had taught him to be. He vowed not to deny his own humanity, not to shrink from his patients' unseen suffering. He vowed he would ask the "probing and important questions, the ones that had nothing to do with an illness and everything to do with it at the same time. " Included are stories from that journal, stories that demonstrate the love, faith, courage and remarkable, boundless resilience of the human spirit. Includes a gift inscription, also from Dr. Judge to a neighbor.; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall; Signed by Author(s)

Half a Life, Strauss, Darin
3 Strauss, Darin Half a Life
This true story begins "Half my life ago, I killed a girl. " An outing in his father's car resulted in the death of a classmate and the beginning of a different, darker life for the author. Strauss brings us through the collision, funeral, the queasy drama of a high-stakes court case - and what starts as a tragic event opens into the story of how to live with a very hard fact: We can try our human best and it might not be good enough. He writes a nakedly honest, ultimately hopeful examination of guilt, responsibility, and living with the past.; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall

0863567266 / 9780863567261; NEW - This diary is set at the outbreak of the Bosnian war. Mladen Vuksanovic, an award-winning journalist, records here the unfolding of events. The author lived in the ski resort of Pale, above Sarajevo. When the savage assault by Radovan Karadzic was launched on the city in April 1992, Vuksanovic - refusing to collaborate - became a prisoner in his own home; he was cut off from all family and friends. In this book he expressed his terror and disgust of the ruler during the 100 days of Karadzic's rule, as he looted, murdered, and the other horrors of war. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
