Darkwolfe has assumed the lordship of Grathmoor and the Demon Gate for now is secure with the help of the dwarven army. Still the threat of chaos and destruction is evident with the demon Za'Varuk now released and the wizard Sabbath and Black Paladin escaping with their lives intact. A new adventure now unfolds to hunt down the remaining Spirit Keys. The companions must now venture forth to the Glacial Mountains and find the source of the call of the Wild God and find the knowledge that they seek; they must commune with the Pine Tree Wind.

Abstract: The parameterization of hybrid-mechanistic storm damage models is largely based on the results of tree pulling tests. The tree pulling tests are used for imitating the quasi-static wind load associated with the mean wind speed. The combined effect of dynamic and quasi-static wind loads associated with wind load maxima is considered by either linearly increasing the quasi-static wind load by a gust factor or by using a turning moment coefficient determined from the relationship between maxima of wind-induced tree response and wind speed. To improve the joint use of information on dynamic and quasi-static wind loading, we present a new method that uses the coupled components of momentum flux time series and time series of stem orientation of a plantation-grown Scots pine tree. First, non-oscillatory tree motion components, which respond to wind excitation, are isolated from oscillatory components that are not coupled to the wind. The non-oscillatory components are detected by applying a sequence of time series decomposition methods including bi-orthogonal decomposition and singular spectrum analysis. Then, the wind-excited tree response components are subjected to dynamic time warping, which maximizes the coincidence between the processed data. The strong coincidence of the time-warped data allows for the estimation of the wind-induced tree response as a function of the effective wind load using simple linear regression. The slope of the regression line represents the rate of change in the tree response as the effective wind load changes. Because of the strength of the relationship, we argue that the method described is an improvement for the analysis of storm damage in forests and to individual trees

Zora Neale Hurston

Though she died penniless and forgotten, Zora Neale Hurston is now recognized as a major figure in African American literature. Best known for her 1937 novel Their Eyes Were Watching God, she also published numerous short stories and essays, three other novels, and two books on black folklore. Even avid readers of Hurston’s prose, however, may be surprised to know that she was also a serious and ambitious playwright throughout her career. Although several of her plays were produced during her lifetime—and some to public acclaim—they have languished in obscurity for years. Even now, most critics and historians gloss over these texts, treating them as supplementary material for understanding her novels. Yet, Hurston’s dramatic works stand on their own merits and independently of her fiction. Now, eleven of these forgotten dramatic writings are being published together for the first time in this carefully edited and annotated volume. Filled with lively characters, vibrant images of rural and city life, biblical and folk tales, voodoo, and, most importantly, the blues, readers will discover a “real Negro theater” that embraces all the richness of black life.

Uncovering the Codes: Fifteen Keywords in Korean Culture is a cultural guide to what is unique about Koreans and their way of life. The questions raised in this book range from the mundane to the spiritual, each touching on the essence of Korea's 5,000-year-old culture: Why is a Korean spoon flat and round, not oval? Why do Korean women pray to a bowl of water? Why do Koreans eat dog meat? Kim Yol-kyu, a renowned scholar of Korean folklore and literature, carefully digs up the answers embedded deep in centuries-old customs. Quoting from a wide scope of references, from ancient mythology to Merleau-Ponty and Levi-Strauss, Kim unearths the fascinating connections between the past and the present. Kim is Dignified Professor of Korean Studies at Keimyung University in Daegu, Korea, where he also directs the Academia Koreana.

Most American readers have only heard of Aesop's Fables, as he is the most prominent fable writer. But there were three major regions of the world that produced prolific fables: China, Greece and India. This book is an English translation of a Chinese collection of fables from editor Gao Jing Xuan. While most fables use animals as their main characters, this book is unique in that it uses plants to teach moral lessons. The fables included are from both modern and classical Chinese authors. In Fables and Plants, we emphasize plants because they are often not given the same attention in fables as animals. But plants were created by God before He created animals and human beings. Plants are also colorful, beautiful and fragrant and can provide great comfort and pleasure to humans. The Three Friends of Winter (bamboo, pine and plum) and Four Gentleman's Flowers (Orchid in Spring, Lotus in summer, Chrysanthemum in the Fall and Plum in the winter) were highly praised and loved by Chinese poets and artists. All of these plants were included in these stories.
