The opening of this book is a description of an airport waiting room that will resonate with anyone who has ever sat in an airport waiting - just waiting. The stories are bound together by the idea that during all that waiting you can take time travel side trips to other worlds. Le Guin uses her anthropological background to create believable cultures of unbelievable life forms. Beautifully written as all Le Guin's books are.

Comprehensive guide to teaching art at the elementary level with an emphasis on the process of creating. Very well-organized with learning objectives and many examples of activities for all the areas of the visual arts.
This is one of my all time favorite romances. Charbonneau is an outstanding writer who takes two people living outside their cultures and crafts an incredible love story. Based on the true story of the gift of corn to the Irish people made by the Cherokee tribe during the potato famine, the heroine, who with her brother survived the Trail of Tears as a child, is a missionized Cherokee Indian woman who takes on the task of delivering the corn to Ireland. There she comes in conflict with an Irish outlaw who has lost everything - wife, children, home, and the will to live. Can two such different people find love and happiness as they travel across America to homestead in Oregon? It's a book you can read again and again.
I love this book. Set in California at the end of the 1800s, it tells of the romance between two unlikely people - a ranger sworn to protect the redwood forests and a lumber baron's rich spoiled daughter. It takes the San Franncisco earthquake to finally bring them together. Charbonneau is a wonderful writer who writes in a spare, poetic style uniquely her own, her stories always touched with a bit of fantasy. The star of this story Matt is my all time favorite romantic hero - would that all men love women the way he does.
