Arabs believe that their ancestors composed poetry before they learned reading and writing. The poetic wealth that the elders have left us surpasses, in its richness, meanings and fertility, all what has been written afterwards. For in poetry, the Arabs boasted their achievements, victories, courage and works. They also satirized their enemies, mocked their rivals and faced their opponents. In poetry they also rhapsodized their loved ones, woman she was, or tribe, or country or belief. Poetry for the Arab was the spoken language, the language to express the sincere, honest and spontaneous thoughts, as well as inner most feelings and moods. Poetry was the daily bread for the spirit and relationships and a record for daily encounters and history. It is not strange that Palestine, in its land, its people, its disaster and tragedy becomes a rich material in our modern days for poets. Nor it is strange that Palestinian prose, and particularly Palestinian information prose, is reflected in a mature, integral and refine poetic ventures. With little elaboration and simplification the Poetic "weapon" in our struggle against the aggressors in Palestine and those who displaced its people, or poetic moans and cries of poets, substitute some demands for different forms of struggle that other nations use against their enemies or to attract friends. Beyond cynicism, we confess that poetry has at times nearly moved from the position of supporter and backer of revitalization the people and their uprising against the unjust to the front bunkers in the struggle of the Palestinian / Arab and Israeli/ Zionist arena. Marwan Dajani is one of the tens of the contemporary Palestinians who have chosen the poetry venue to express their innocent, true and spontaneous nationalistic and humane feelings. But he is one of the very few who took the challenge in a different language than his mother tongue, namely the English Language. In doing so he is trying to send his message, worries, wishes and expectations to the outside world. Maybe Marwan wants to record the incidents and facts that he and the Palestinian people have passed, and are still passing through. He records what these incidents involved of cruelty, injustice, assaults on laws, regulations and human rights; and expresses the hope of every Palestinian to regain their stolen land and the construction of a just society in their beloved Palestine. Marwan records all this in an artistic and committed style that steers away (but does not contradict) the true historical facts, scientist search, and information diffusion. Marwans poetry is a key that we hope the foreign reader can use to open the records of the Palestinian tragedy to know the truth that has evaded them for a long time. He is inviting the world to see facts as they really are and not as Zionist propaganda has faked and mutilated for over a century. Marwan also seizes the opportunity to expose his feelings and expectations in non-political matters that relate to family, religion, and reform matters. A man with a message, Marwan relates the truth without trying to use diplomatic sanctions and reservations which always strangle the truth and leaves the door for false accusations. The strength of his message lies in its truth, spontaneity and innocence; not in its rhyme, bright images, or sweet progressing. Marwan is not a professional poet, he is a natural poet, and here lies the richness of his poetry.

The young father stands to lose everything on account of the cruel intentions of his landowner's heedless son. Although reluctant, Coll sets out to confront his trouble. And so begins his fall from the rain-soaked, cloud-swirling Eden, and a pursuit across the wild bog lands of Donegal. Behind him is John Faller - a man who has vowed to hunt Coll to the ends of the earth - in a pursuit that will stretch to an epic voyage across the Atlantic, and to greater tragedy in the new American frontier.

A compassionate and sensitive exploration of the merciless side of man and the indifference of nature, it is both a mesmerizing feat of imagination and a landmark piece of fiction.

New York Times bestselling novelists W. Michael and Kathleen O’Neal Gear have long been considered the foremost chroniclers of early Native American life. Now, in a critically acclaimed, sweeping new series, they recreate the conflict-filled years following one of the first European invasions. Seen through the eyes of a courageous pair of Native Americans, Fire the Sky follows Hernando de Soto’s brutal expedition north from the Florida peninsula as the explorer plunders the heart of a complex and fragile civilization. An itinerant trader and outcast from his tribe, Black Shell was swept into the Spirit World and returned a transformed man. Now, carrying his white-feathered trader’s staff, he devotes his life to a sacred mission that only the tall, beautiful Pearl Hand—his lover, confidant and wife—truly understands. Black Shell has seen what the incomprehensibly violent, shining-armored invaders are capable of doing to his world and knows that if his people are to survive, he and his “Orphans,” a small band of fierce warriors, must kill as many Kristianos as they can. After being fought to a standstill by the courageous Apalachee Nation, de Soto has changed his tactics. He will employ promises of peace to accomplish what cannot be achieved by violence alone. Lured by a young man’s tale of gold and aided by an arrogant princess’s treachery, he makes his way through the beautiful southeastern landscape. One by one, the ancient Nations fall victim to his lies as rulers and commoners alike are tricked into enslavement. In spite of the price de Soto has placed on his head, Black Shell shadows the Kristiano advance and finds that his own legend precedes him. Some will heed Black Shell’s strategies of sacrifice and deception. Others will ignore him—and suffer unspeakable horrors as a result. In this moving, vivid portrait of a lost American civilization and a powerful love between a man and a woman, the Gears illuminate a little-understood time in our history, as this bloody conflict between two peoples hurtles toward an apocalyptic battle that may change the course of the war forever. . . .
