This is the story of Rachel O'Conner, a frontier nurse who sailed from her home on the Eastern Seaboard to the small outpost town of Astoria, Oregon in the year 1865, just after the Civil War. She goes with young doctor Mark Whitfield to lumber camps, homesteads, Indian villages and far flung settlements. She finds herself attracted to a young half-breed Indian man, but fights the attraction as he is wild, untamed, and has a devil-may-care attitude about life itself. She marries the doctor, but the handsome young outlaw is persistent and finally rapes Rachel. She gives birth to a little girl whom Mark thinks is his. The book takes the reader into the personal lives of the early pioneers and Rachel hears stories from lonely housewives of the isolation and sometimes the deaths of loved ones. The story gives a broad over-all picture of stress, strife and struggle.

The story of Ith is a tragedy of a young boy, left to face life alone. He is forced to come to terms with his own manifestations, to reclaim who he once used to be. With the help of his two friends, Ith learns we all have the ability to create what it is that destroys us, but has to learn on his own that we are also the creators. As the three friends soon find out, those manifestations are as different as each one of them. Now they must struggle to harness their new abilities and learn to balance their power before they are consumed by it. Its not about a problem in general, but a general problem. My hope is for people to walk way with a feeling that although we are culminations of our experiences we have the ability to overcome all obstacles we may put before ourselves.

This book is annotated with a rare extensive biographical sketch of the author, Andrew Lang, written by Sir Edmund Gosse, CB, a contemporary poet and writer. It is not without hesitation that this book is offered to the reader. Very many people, for very various reasons, would taboo the subjects here discoursed of altogether. These subjects are a certain set of ancient beliefs, for example the belief in clairvoyance, in ‘hauntings,’ in events transcending ordinary natural laws. The peculiarity of these beliefs is, that they have survived the wreck of faith in such elements of witchcraft as metamorphosis, and power to cause tempest or drought. To study such themes is ‘impious,’ or ‘superstitious,’ or ‘useless’. Yet to a pathologist, or anthropologist, the survivals of beliefs must always be curious and attractive illustrations of human nature. Contents: Preface. Introduction. Savage Spiritualism. Ancient Spiritualism. Comparative Psychical Research Haunted Houses Cock Lane And Common-Sense Apparitions, Ghosts, And Hallucinations. Scrying Or Crystal-Gazing The Second Sight Ghosts Before The Law A Modern Trial For Witchcraft Presbyterian Ghost Hunters. The Logic Of Table-Turning The Ghost Theory Of The Origin Of Religion
