In this new translation of Vergil's "Aeneid," Patric Dickinsopn captures Vergil's epic poem and preserves the spirit of the original poem, the color, the movement, the life, with fresh force of imagery an insight.

Parker continues to write entertaining fiction. My only complaints: the books are such fast reading; and, he doesn't write fast enough. I look forward to his next one, because I've read all he's written.
When Darwin Hunter undertakes a revision of the popular local history "Over Yonder Hill," he discovers that he has let himself in for quite a job. Like thousands of other towns in America, Upper Granville is facing all the problems that occur when old-fashioned rural values meet up with modern lifestyles -- and current real estate values.
This book was especially relevant because we lived in Rochester, next to Lower Granville, for 10 years. Our home was at the end of a gravel road, with no phone line, no electricity and no neighbors. It seemed like the ideal place until the National Forest Service decided to log out about 20 acres of hardwoods up above our property and their logging road destroyed our spring when they dynamited some ledge and then rain washed their road down into our driveway and garage. Our 2 younger children still grew up there, without TV and other conveniences. They both went on to full academic scholarships at major universities despite this hardship. The younger one is still in Vermont and works as a free-lance editor specializing in books relating to environmental issues.
Like all of Elmore Leonard's books, this one grabs you on the first page and doesn't let go until the last page. His characters and dialogue are first rate. The only complaint about this book is that it's over too soon.

"Rolf Clark's approach to tennis allows people freedom from having to play the 'righrt' way or trying to find 'the answer' that will finally fix their game. His concept of inquiry leaves people powerful in their own development. How they plan becomes part of them rather than something a coach told them." -- Jonathan Clark, President Tennis Professionals Foundation
