All the stories in this book contain lessons; they teach something about cooking and sewing, knitting and crocheting, housekeeping and gardening, and first-aid—and tell a story, too; but The Mary Frances Story Book is all story, in fact 37 exquisitely illustrated stories. Jane Eyre Fryer has drawn these stories from many sources and retold them in her way. On a summer afternoon Mary Frances took a holiday and sailed away across the blue water to an island—an island formed by the top of a coral mountain resting in a sea of blue—a brighter blue than the water anywhere in the world. The island itself and the roofs of the houses were coral white, with palm, banana and mahogany tree encased in green. The breezes that blew are the warm, soft breezes of the southern sun. This island is the “enchanted island” of the good story-tellers which Mary Frances, and now all children, are allowed to visit. The story people who live there believed in truth and beauty, and courage and kindness, and these are the theme of all their stories. As may be imagined, when Mary Frances came home she had not only one, but many new stories to tell; and they are now written in this book. This volume is sure to keep you and your young ones enchanted for hours, if not because of the quantity, then their quality. They will have you coming back for more time and again. ============ KEYWORDS/TAGS: fairy tales, folklore, myths, legends, children’s stories, childrens stories, bygone era, fairydom, fairy kingdom, ethereal, fairy land, classic stories, children’s bedtime stories, happy place, happiness, laughter, Sea Shore, Ferry, Pirate’s Cat, the Lost Story, Land Ahoy, Old Witch, Iron Chain, Curtain, Search, Find, Chase, Punishment, The Bubble Story, Anon, First Day, Mischievous, Anna, Peter Diamonds, Toads, Macé’s Fairy Tales, Magic Necklace, Cat, Carrots, Brahmin, Tiger, Jackal, Hindu, Folk Tales, Red Dragon, Poems, Crow, Twins, Tiny, Adventures In Tiny Town, Lock-Up, Adopt, Discover, Fire, Adventures, Saves, Baby, Life, Shopping, Mother, Second Day, Magic Mask, Closing Door, Maud Lindsay, Tom, Well, Neil Forest, Gloomy Gus, Christmas Cat, Alfred Westfall, Patty, Pitcher, Crowquill’s, Magic Circle, Wonderful Pitcher, Well Dressed, Stranger, Trouble, Third Day, Sir Galahad, Sir Thomas Malory, King Arthur, Knights Of The Round Table, Order Of Knighthood, The Sword In The Stone, Perilous Seat, The Sword Of Balin Le Savage, Quest, Holy Grail, White Shield, Red Cross, Sir Launcelot, Sir Percival, Attack, Gentlewoman, Mysterious Ship, Sword Of The Strange Belt, Risk, Knight In White Armor, Achieves, Quest, Bears Across The Sea, Passing Of Sir Galahad, Sir Bors, Camelot, Sir Launfal, James Russell Lowell, Fourth Day, Music, Bewitched, Hartley Richards, Bob Three Foes, Father Pan, Revenge, Ann, Catch A Thief.

This carefully crafted ebook: "Cobwebs from an Empty Skull (Illustrated Stories, Fables, Poetry, Maxims, Sketches, Epigrams, Quips, Witticisms)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. "Cobwebs from an Empty Skull", first published in 1874, is a collection of short fables and stories written under Bierce's pseudonym, Dod Grile, and although one of his earliest published books, it still displays the wit and cynicism which colors his writing. The book is divided into three sections: "Fables of Zambri, the Parsee," an assortment of over 100 fables; "Brief Seasons of Intellectual Dissipation," discussions between a fool and a philosopher, a doctor and a soldier, respectively; and "Divers Tales," 28 different stories of an eclectic nature, including The Grateful Bear, Dr. Deadwood, I Presume, Mrs. Dennison's Head, and Jim Beckwourth's Pond. Ambrose Gwinnett Bierce (1842-1914) was an American editorialist, journalist, short-story writer and satirist, today best known for his The Devil's Dictionary (1911). His short stories are considered among the best of the 19th century, providing a popular following based on his roots. Bierce's lucid, unsentimental style has kept him popular when many of his contemporaries have been consigned to oblivion. His dark, sardonic views and vehemence as a critic earned him the nickname, "Bitter Bierce."

Illustrated Stories from the Book of Mormon: Volume 3 retells the history of Lehi and his descendants from 2 Nephi 1 through Enos. After the travels to the promised land, it required the constant teaching of priests and prophets to remind the people of their dependence on God. Lehi continued to teach his children from the plates of brass and the revelations he received from the Lord. He wished to bless all of his children before he died and called them all to him to receive some final instruction and his blessings. After Lehi died, the Lord commanded Nephi to take the righteous among his people and leave so that Laman and Lemuel will not kill Nephi. Nephi became a mighty prophet who lead his people in righteousness and taught them of the coming of the Savior, baptism, the Holy Ghost, and the Restoration of the gospel in the latter days. The records contained on the plates of brass and the plates of Nephi are passed down to prophets and record keepers for future generations. The Nephites and the Lamanites had spread over the land and there began to be wars and contentions among them. Each page includes vivid illustration to help maintain interest and increase understanding for young readers of these important scriptures. A dramatized audio read-along is also included in this e-book to further bring the scriptures to life.

‘Perrault’s Fairy Tales’ is a wonderful collection of some true classics of children’s literature. Perrault (1628 – 1703) was among the first writers to bring magical children’s stories into the literary mainstream, proving to his original seventeenth century readers that such works were important, enjoyable, as well as thought-provoking. They remain as popular today, as they were then. He is responsible for such famous works as ‘Cinderella’, ‘Little Red Riding Hood’, ‘Sleeping Beauty’, and ‘Puss in Boots’. ‘Perrault’s Fairy Tales’ are accompanied by the dazzling illustrations of a master of the trade; Honor C. Appleton (1879 – 1951).

"The Mapping and Charting Establishment has had other names in its history, but this small, highly skilled and essential organization is as old as the Army itself and predates the Canadian navy and Air Force. It is easy to see in the photos and personal stories how these military mappers pushed, led, supported and assisted in the accurate mapping of Canada, a land 18 times the size of France, In WWI they pioneered the accurate location of artillery targets and in WWII found out how to use air photos for accurate and rapid mapping. You will marvel at their roles in Normandy the crossing of the Rhine, and in printing millions of combat maps on the move. You will also learn of their tragedies in war. In the Cold War they worked with allies to map the world and today the story tells of modern combat operations supporting military actions in the Balkans and in Afghanistan. Back in 1903 these intrepid mappers slapped mosquitoes and black flies in the swamps of Petawawa while painstakingly drawing a map on a plane table. Now they sit in front of computers in dust and danger of Afghanistan combining good maps with timely information about the enemy for use by commanders. Form the Preface to the last Chapter you will be convinced that these men and women are damned good at what they do!" -- Book jacket.

In April 1888, Andrew Jenson, Danish immigrant and convert to the Mormon faith, received an unexpected invitation from church leaders to speak at their general conference. Jenson was an outsider to this conference tradition, a layman whose only standing before the main body of Latter-day Saints came from a contracted position with the Church Historian's Office. Forty-two years later, in April 1930, Jenson offered his twenty-eighth and final general conference sermon. He had become the voice of institutional record keeping in his over forty-year career as an Assistant Church Historian. His sermons demonstrated the growth and expansion of the Mormon general conference tradition in the twentieth century, as they placed the Latter-day Saint story front and center for church members to learn from and celebrate. In addition, Jenson urged conference goers to keep better personal and institutional records and believed he was often the solitary advocate for church record keeping and historical preservation. A Voice in the Wilderness presents all twenty-eight of Andrew Jenson's general conference sermons, with introductions and annotations that set them within their historical and religious contexts. His speeches capture a unique period in Mormon history, one of institutional change, accommodation, and growth. This study of Jenson's sermons uncovers the richness and diversity that thrives just beneath the surface of official ecclesiastical discourse.

Reviving a lost classic of American fairy-tale literature Charles Godfrey Leland was one of the most popular American writers and artists of the nineteenth century, publishing more than twenty books of legends, fairy tales, humor, and essays. Today, however, he is a woefully underappreciated writer. Written, designed, and illustrated by Leland in 1892, The Book of One Hundred Riddles of the Fairy Bellaria is a forgotten classic and a small sample of his influential and experimental work. The Book of One Hundred Riddles of the Fairy Bellaria features the Scheherazade-like fairy goddess Bellaria: powerful and mysterious, courageous and clever, goddess of spring, flowers, love, fate, and death. In this story, Bellaria engages in a duel of wits with an evil king, a death match of one hundred riddles. Each riddle is spoken as a rhyme and illustrated by an original engraving in the arts and crafts style. This book is a beautiful reintroduction to Leland and his pioneering design.
