Rosabel is a lonely member of a large farm family in Minnesota at the turn of the century- a middle child with no one close to her own age to share her thoughts with. During the late summer, she has to remain away from the farm and the other children all day, for her chore is to tend alone the herd of cows as they wander through woods and meadows where pastures seem best to them. One day a strange old woman comes to Rosabel's aid at a frightening time- when the cows are running rampant through a neighbor's cornfield. A warm friendship developws between the old woman and the young girl, although it must remain a secret because 'Granny Meg' is hiding in the woods from the town officials who, 'for her own good,' want to put her into the County Home."

352 ppg including index and maps. Clean overall. Top right front cover bumped. "In this consummate portrait of the Italian people, bestselling author, publisher, journalist, and politician Luigi Barzini delves deeply into the Italian national character, discovering both its great qualities and its imperfections. Barzini is startlingly frank as he examines "the two Italies": the one that created and nurtured such luminaries as Dante Alighieri, St. Thomas of Aquino, and Leonardo da Vinci; the other, feeble and prone to catastrophe, backward in political action if not in thought, "invaded, ravaged, sacked, and humiliated in every century." Deeply ambivalent, Barzini approaches his task with a combination of love, hate, disillusion, and affectionate paternalism, resulting in a completely original, thoughtful, and probing picture of his countrymen."Trade Paperback.

Point Lookout Prison Camp for Confederates, Beitzell, Edwin
37 Beitzell, Edwin Point Lookout Prison Camp for Confederates
Maryland 1999 Fifth Hardcover Very Good Very Good 
This book is the first complete history of the prison camp for Confederates at Point Lookout, Maryland and it is entirely factual. The data outlining the terrible sufferings of the prisoners which resulted in over 1500 deaths in a period of less than two years that the prison was in operation is taken from War of the Rebellion, Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies, the large collection of Point Lookout Official War Records at the U.S. National Archives in Washington, DC, the diaries and other accounts of life in the prison camp and other reliable sources. It is a story of cruel decisions in high places - decisions made coldly and without compassion. It is a story of diarrhea and dysentery, of typhoid and typhus, of burning sands and freezing cold in rotten tents - it is a story of senseless shootings by the guards - it is a story of despair and death - death of many men that could have been saved. The author is well equipped to tell this story of his ntaive county. From 1956 through 1983 he was the Editor of the Chronicles of St. Mary's County Historical Society, in which much of this material has previously appeared.

38 Belford, Barbara Violet : The Story of the Irrepressible Violet Hunt and Her Circle of Lovers and Friends - Ford Madox Ford, H. G. Wells, Somerset Maugham, and Henry James
New York, NY, U.S.A. Simon & Schuster 1990 0671643517 / 9780671643515 Hardcover As New As New Jacket 
The subtitle aptly describes Columbia University journalism professor Belford's biography of British novelist Violet Hunt (1862-1942). The daughter of a landscape artist and a writer, she came of age among the Pre-Raphaelites, her way strewn with literary plenipotentiaries: her diary, begun when she was 14, features such family friends as John Ruskin and Oscar Wilde. Hunt, called by one crony "a woman made for irregular situations," was drawn by her love of flirtation and intrigue into an affair at 22 with George Boughton, married and 30 years her senior. Diaries discovered by Belford fill in details of her painful affair with Oswald Crawfurdsp ok.g , from whom she evidently contracted syphilis. The biography deftly handles her most important relationship--with Ford Madox Ford--and her contradictory desire for sexual freedom and respectability. While giving Hunt her due as a writer (she wrote 17 novels and many short stories), Belford rightly concentrates on her subject's zest for unconventional love and life. Lavender and plum boards with silver lettering on spine. Appears to be first (not stated).Hard Cover. As New/As New.
