A Happy Dreamer grasps the beauty of the different places and events author Elissaveta Iordanova has experienced in the past fi fteen years. Her collection of poetry presents a very personal response-a palette of reactions, feelings, and thoughts-to her journey. She has long been fascinated by short poems and the brevity with which her innermost thoughts can be expressed. They fulfill her desire to share a small part of these places, to encourage others to see things differently, and to understand that sharing is connection. Her poems, inspired by haiku but not confined to the form, reflect her personal experiences with nature, dances of the heart, and happy dreams for the future. She views this as a way to choreograph images that are poetic canvases of places and people striving for meaningful lives. From poems that speak of the beauty of the sea crashing against the rocks to poems that speak of love found by the light of the moon and stars, A Happy Dreamer evokes the emotion and expectation of a journey to cherish for a lifetime. "Elissaveta Iordanova's poems capture small, fleeting moments with haiku-like compression and delicacy." -Elizabeth Frank, PhD, a Pulitzer Prize-winning author

If the old toy soldier hadn't come to life, Roger would never have discovered the magic. And that would never have happened if he and his sister, Ann, hadn't been sent to stay with their bossy cousins for the summer. And that wouldn't have happened at all if their father hadn't gotten sick and gone into the hospital. But all of that did happen, and now Roger, his sister, and their cousins find themselves in a bygone world of chivalry and knighthood, of Robin Hood and Ivanhoe. In this knightly realm they can make a difference—and perhaps even save the person they most need to save—if only they are smart and brave enough, if only they are true to their hearts.

From its origins in the Cumberland Mountains to its entry into the Ohio, the Kentucky River flows through two areas that have made Kentucky known throughout the world -- the mountains in the eastern part of the state and the Bluegrass in its center. In The Kentucky, Thomas D. Clark paints a rich panorama of history and life along the river, peopled with the famous and infamous, ordinary folk and legendary characters. It is a canvas distinctly emblematic of the American experience. The Kentucky was first published in 1942 as part of the "Rivers of America" series and has long been out of print. Reissued in this new enlarged edition, it brings back to life a distinguished contribution to Kentuckiana and is itself a historical document. In his new conclusion for this edition, Dr. Clark discusses some of the tremendous changes that have taken place since the book's initial publication.
