Call to the Falling Eagle Excerpt :

This book, Call to the Falling Eagle, explores who Americans once were in terms of beliefs and values, who we have become in the past century, and how that has changed the course of our nation from a path of ascent to a path of descent. The primary agents that affected these changes are also described. Future prospects for our nation are next examined if current trends in changing beliefs and values of Americans continue indefinitely. This modern experiment is failing our nation. Finally, Eagle explores paths to reverse the declining course of our nation, calls Americans to seek paths of restoration, and offers hope for that restoration.

Dream of a Falling Eagle Excerpt :

Circus-performer-turned-PI Mongo takes on “the CIA, neo-Nazis, and Haitian voodoo terrorists” in a grand finale that is “even more fun than usual” (Booklist). With a genius IQ, a past career as a circus acrobat, and a black belt in karate, criminology professor Dr. Robert Frederickson—better known as “Mongo the Magnificent”—has a decidedly unusual background for a private investigator. He also just so happens to be a dwarf. Investigating illegal CIA activities in Haiti leads Mongo and his brother, former NYPD cop Garth Frederickson, to a grisly discovery: five victims of voodoo ritual sacrifice. But that’s just the first surprise. Soon they uncover a wildly ambitious assassination plot that not only puts them in the cross hairs but also has the potential to change the fate of the United States forever . . . Employing his “unlimited imagination” and talent for creating “terrific suspense” in the Mongo mystery series, author George C. Chesbro delivers a climax that pulls out all the stops (Publishers Weekly). Dream of a Falling Eagle is the 14th book in the Mongo Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

The Eagle Is Falling Saith God Excerpt :

There is a saying, “He who lives by the sword shall also die by the sword.” If America is a democracy, bases itself by the constitution, the preamble, and the laws of the land or country, and if it was our origin, then it shall be our demise. It is one too; it was set up wrong, or we are interpreting it wrong; it was based on freedom and rights for a free society, under God with liberty and justice for all. And we say, “In God we trust.” How can America trust in a God that has been laid to the side. How is he laid to the side? By our constitution, the First Amendment.

Eagle Voice Remembers Excerpt :

"[Eagle Voice Remembers] is John Neihardt's mature and reflective interpretation of the old Sioux way of life. He served as a translator of the Sioux past, whose audience has proved not to be limited by space or time. Through Neihardt's writings Black Elk, Eagle Elk, and other old men who were of that last generation of Sioux to have participated in the old buffalo-hunting life and the disorienting period of strife with the U.S. Army found a literary voice. What they say chronicles a dramatic transition in the life of the Plains Indians; the record of their thoughts, interpreted by Neihardt, is a legacy preserved for the future. It transcends the specifics of this one tragic case of cultural misunderstanding and conflict and speaks to universal human concerns. It is a story worth contemplating both for itself and for the lessons it teaches all humanity."--from the introduction by Raymond J. DeMallie In her foreword Coralie Hughes discusses John G. Neihardt's intention that this book, formerly titled When the Tree Flowered, be understood as a prequel to his classic Black Elk Speaks. In this new edition David C. Posthumus adds clarity through his annotations, introducing Eagle Voice Remembers to a new generation of readers and presenting a fresh understanding for fans of the original.

The Reptant Eagle Excerpt :

Carlos Fuentes (1928–2012) was the most prominent novelist in contemporary Mexico and, until his recent death, one of the leading voices in Latin America’s Boom generation. He received the most prestigious awards and prizes in the world, including the Latin Civilization Award (presented by the Presidents of Brazil, Mexico, and France), the Miguel de Cervantes Prize, and the Prince of Asturias Award. During his fecund and accomplished life as a writer, literary theorist, and political analyst, Fuentes turned his attention to the major conflicts of the twentieth century – from the Second World War and the Cuban Revolution, to the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia, the war in Vietnam, and the post-revolutionary crisis of the one-party rule in Mexico – and attended to their political and international importance in his novels, short fiction, and essays. Known for his experimentation in narrative techniques, and for novels and essays written in a global range that illuminate the conflicts of our times, Fuentes’s writings have been rightfully translated into most of the world’s languages. His literary work continues to spur and provoke the interest of a global readership on diverse civilizations and eras, from Imperial Spain and post-revolutionary France, to Ancient and Modern Mexico, the United States, and Latin America. The Reptant Eagle: Essays on Carlos Fuentes and the Art of the Novel includes nineteen essays and one full introduction written exclusively for this volume by renowned Fuentes scholars from Asia, Europe, the United States, and Latin America. Collected into five parts, the essays integrate wide-ranging methods and innovative readings of The Death of Artemio Cruz (1962), Aura (1962), Terra Nostra (1975) and, among other novels, Distant Relations (1980); they analyze the visual arts in Fuentes’s novels (Diego Rivera’s murals and world film); chart and comment on the translations of Fuentes’s narratives into Japanese and Romanian; and propo

The Eagle s Mile Excerpt :

A book of new poems by a major writer is an event. A book of new poems that marks a different, more powerful approach is cause for celebration. “What I looked for here,” James Dickey tells us about The Eagle’s Mile, “was a flicker of light ‘from another direction,’ and when I caught it – or thought I did – I followed where it went, for better or worse.” In this new work, Dickey edges away from the narrative-based poems of his previous books and gives instead more primacy to the language in which he writes. His poetry gains flexibility, and his poetic power becomes even surer and more clearly expressed. “I have experimented,” Dickey writes, “and look forward to experimenting more.”
