Wind on the Waves is a collection of fifty-two stories that embody the beauty, mystery, and allure of Oregon’s magnificent coast. Written by award-winning author and poet Kim Stafford, these wonderfully written vignettes celebrate the people, towns, wildlife, culture, and natural beauty of one of America’s most rugged, beautiful, and enchanting coast lines. Wind on the Waves evokes the feelings of wonder and joy, the miracle of existence, the significance of humanity—and its insignificance compared to the power of the sea. Being open to the world is a gift—one which Kim Stafford has shared so well. These words from one of Oregon’s most influential writers are the song of life sung on the stage of the shore, and the wind, and the waves.

With this book in hand, boaters can cruise down the Jersey Shore--from New York Harbor to Delaware Bay--in the good company of Captain Donald Launer. Captain Launer brings many years of experience as a skipper of small boats to this engaging nautical and historical guide to New Jersey's tidal waters. Cruise with him from the New Jersey/New York state line near the mouth of the Hudson River, past Raritan Bay and Sandy Hook, and into the Manasquan Inlet. From there, he gives you a choice of voyages: the inside route through the Intracoastal Waterway to Toms River, Barnegat Bay, Atlantic City, and Cape May, or taking the offshore passage. Then you explore the Delaware Bay and its tributaries and cruise up the Delaware River to Trenton. This revised edition contains updated information about onshore facilities, marinas, restaurants, stores, sites of interest, docking fees, bridge heights, maritime service stations, weather, navigation, and safety, as well as post-September 11 regulations in the waters around New York City. The book also includes a wealth of photographs and sea charts. Donald Launer, who holds a U.S. Coast Guard captain's license, has explored the New Jersey waters in every kind of small craft since he first sailed in Barnegat Bay at the age of eight. His articles on recreational boating have appeared in Good Old Boat Magazine, Cruising World, The Beachcomber, Offshore, and Sail. He berths his schooner, Delphinus, in Forked River, New Jersey.

The central incident of this novel is that most extraordinary of all punishments known to English criminal law, the peine forte et dure. The story is not, however, in any sense historical. A sketchy background of stirring history is introduced solely in order to heighten the personal danger of a brave man. The interest is domestic, and, perhaps, in some degree psycho-logical. Around a pathetic piece of old jurisprudence I have gathered a mass of Cumbrian folk-lore and folk-talk with which I have been familiar from earliest youth. To smelt and mould the chaotic memories into an organism such as may serve, among other uses, to give a view of Cumberland life in little, has been the work of one year. The story, which is now first presented as a whole, has already had a career in the newspapers, and the interest it excited in those quarters has come upon me as a surprise. I was hardly prepared to find that my plain russet-coated dalesmen were in touch with popular sympathy; but they have made me many friends. To me they are very dear, for I have lived their life. It is with no affected regret that I am now parting with these companions to make way for a group of younger comrades.

In »Der Name des Windes« erzählt Patrick Rothfuss die Geschichte von Kvothe, dem berühmtesten Zauberer seiner Zeit. Damit ist ihm ein Roman von so viel Einfallsreichtum und solch sprachlicher Kraft und Authentizität gelungen, dass er die gesamte Fantasyszene aufhorchen lässt. »Vielleicht habt ihr von mir gehört« ... von Kvothe, dem für die Magie begabten Sohn fahrender Spielleute. Das Lager seiner Truppe findet er verwüstet, die Mutter und den Vater tot - »sie haben einfach die falschen Lieder gesungen«. Wer aber sind diese Chandrian, die weißglänzenden, schleichenden Mörder seiner Familie? Um ihnen auf die Spur zu kommen, riskiert Kvothe alles. Er lebt als Straßenjunge in der Hafenstadt Tarbean, bis er auf das Arkanum, die Universität für hohe Magie aufgenommen wird. Vom Namenszauber, der ihn als Kind fast das Leben gekostet hätte, erhofft sich Kvothe die Macht, das Geheimnis der sagenumwobenen Dämonen aufzudecken. Im Mittelpunkt dieses Leseabenteuers steht ein großer Magier und leidenschaftlicher Wissenschaftler, ein Musiker, dessen Lieder die Sänger zum Weinen bringen ... und ein schüchterner Liebhaber. Mit Der Name des Windes legt Patrick Rothfuss den ersten Teil der Königsmörder-Chronik-Trilogie vor, der in den USA bei Kritikern und Fantasylesern begeistert aufgenommen wurde und schon bald einen der vorderen Plätze in der New York Times Bestsellerliste belegte. Der Bestseller-Autor Terry Brooks schreibt: »Der Name des Windes stellt das Debüt eines Autors dar, den wir lieber im Auge behalten sollten.« Das Magazin »The Onion« gibt den Lesern folgenden Rat: »Stellen Sie Der Name des Windes neben "Der Herr der Ringe" ins Regal und erwarten Sie den Tag, an dem beide in einem Atemzug genannt werden, vielleicht als Erste unter Gleichen.« 2007 wurde Patrick Rothfuss für seinen Roman »Der Name des Windes« mit dem Quill Award sowie dem Pulishers Weekly Award für das beste Fantasy-Buch des Jahres ausgezeichnet.

There were three things that Steve Greene wanted to do, and they were, in order of importance: 1. Get away from his Great Mistake (her name was Vivian). 2. Write the last movement of his symphony and relieve his mind of an unfinished concerto or two. 3. Whip the waters of some unspoiled mountain lake for record-breaking bass and pike. And so he bought a trailer. When he took to the open road, his house on wheels was replete with gadgets and improvements, but he was hardly prepared to find a breathtakingly pretty girl and a snarling, suspicious black dog hiding in the depths of his folding bed when he parked the first night, fifty miles from civilization. Little did Steve know, the pretty girl was actually Gloria Newcombe of Hollywood, running away from a new contract and an expensive and utterly unwanted husband. Her disappearance had been ballooned into a sensational kidnapping. While State Troopers and assorted county sheriffs comb the trails for Gloria, affairs inside the trailer grow ever more complicated, intimate, and tempestuous in this romantic tale of two worlds colliding against the backdrop of America in the 1930s.

In this Native American allegory, a young Lakota boy named David is despondent over the death of his sister and fears that he will never know happiness again. His father gives him a gift, a scroll with seven pictures, which properly understood, hold the keys to self-understanding. In an entertaining and deeply moving way, Lessons of a Lakota blends traditional Native American beliefs in meditation, dreams, and respect for the harmony and balance of nature, with more modern principles such as positive thinking and self-awareness. This book will teach you about yourself, show you what it means to be happy, and lead you on your own personal journey to inner peace.
