Book Excerpt: THE VOICE FROM OUT THE MISTS.While Young Matt was gone to the corral in the valley to see that the sheep were safely folded for the night, and the two women were busy in the house with their after-supper work, Mr. Matthews and his guest sat on the front porch."My name is Howitt, Daniel Howitt," the man said in answer to the host's question. But, as he spoke, there was in his manner a touch of embarrassment, and he continued quickly as if to prevent further question, "You have two remarkable children, sir; that boy is the finest specimen of manhood I have ever seen, and the girl is remarkable--remarkable, sir. You will pardon me, I am sure, but I am an enthusiastic lover of my kind, and I certainly have never seen such a pair."The grim face of the elder Matthews showed both pleasure and amusement. "You're mistaken, Mister; the boy's mine alright, an' he's all that you say, an' more, I reckon. I doubt if there's a man in the hills can match him to-day; noRead More

"The western films are named for each year in the following categories: picture, screenplay (original and adaptation), direction, cinematography, music, and male and female leading and supporting roles. In some years, the outstanding westerns in a few additional categories - such as novel, nonfiction book, or short story or novella filmed - are named. Westerns that received or won Academy Award nominations, the births and deaths of notable actors, directors, producers, composers, cinematographers, authors and other such personalities, and the genre's significant achievements are also given for each year."--Jacket.

"The Shepherd is Yeshua of Nazareth, son of the wealthy landowner and builder Yusuf and his young second wife Meriam. Although in outward form young Yeshua's life is not different from that of his contemporaries, the handsome boy who fights a panther to protect his flock, composes mystical psalms, debates with the rabbis and has a new concept of the glory of God is obviously not like other mortals. At 17 when Yusuf dies, Yeshua obeying his father's last wish seeks to learn more of the world and himself by traveling. He learns the Greek way of life as an apprentice to a great actor; the ways of Egypt by studying in the temple of Isis, and when in the desert he rises from the grave where Arab robbers placed him, Yeshua is ready through this mystical renewal to join the contemplative order of the Essenes for a time. Returning to his mother's house a man of 30, knowing now that he is the Chosen One, he seeks out his cousin Yona, is baptized by him and revealed to Yona's followers as the Messiah. A curious mixture of the archaeological and the mystical in tone, context and style this unusual novel is, if not always credible, consistently interesting."--Kirkus
The more distant mountains , covered with the fresh snow , showed their outline
against the pale blue sky , majestic images of eternal steadfastness and purity ;
the nearer hills , only partially whitened , were here and there broken into
These , repeating the shouts of joy , conveyed the glad tidings to the hills , and
the hills to the populous vales beyond these , to fortress , tower , and city , still
farther off ; until the tide of sound rolled like waves over all Judah , died away in

W. L May 21, 1932 If may be glorious to write Thoughts that shall glad the two or three High souls y like those Jar stars that come in sight Once in a century But better far it is to speak One simple word which now and then Shall waken their free nature in the weak And friendless sons of men To write some earnest verse or line, Which, seeking not the praise of art Shall make a clearer faith and manhood shine In the untutored heart LOWELL TO MY SONS TO MY S ONS GILBERT PAUL NORMAN 187 2 I 932 I THINK IT IS QUITE TIME THAT SOME ONE TOLD YOU boys a few things about your father. I am well aware that for just any person to act upon this suggestion might not be advisable but, being your father, I feel myself qualified to make the required revelations with a reason able degree of safety. Every son, it seems to me, should know something about the life his father lived before they became ac quainted. Usually there are reasons why he should know about it from his father. Once a boy comes really to know his father, it is different. After that, the less dad talks about himself the better. I understand, too, that some fathers and sons never do become acquainted. But we are not that sort which is very fortunatefor me. So I propose to tell you some of the things that happened to your dad before you came along and undertook the heavy job of reforming him I mean, the job of making him over into a passable sort of father. TO MY SONS Please do not understand that I intend writing a regular autobiography with dates and names and every thing for you boys or for anyone else. I should say not I can imagine nothing more tiresome to do or more un necessary. So do not be alarmed, I shall not tell you all I know about your father not by a great deal. You may trust me to omit many things which you would not enjoy knowing, which would profit you nothing, and of which I am heartily ashamed. I shall tell the truth about what ever I choose to tell you, but I shall be very careful what I choose to tell. If what I am about to write should, in spots, bear a chronological resemblance to autobiography, it will be only because it happened that way and not be cause I am in the least autobiographically minded. Life, you know, does not come all in one piece like a cheese it resembles, more, linked sausages a series of events all in a string. You boys know very well that the thought of writing a book about myself would never have occurred to me. It was John M. Siddall who, several years ago, first put the idea into my head. Mr. Siddall was then editor of The American TMLaga zine. He knew a little of my life before I became a writer. He was aware that from my early boyhood I had grown up, for the most part, homeless and friendless that I had spent much of my youth in a most wretched and debasing environment j and that I had had no schooling beyond the mere beginnings of an education. He said that TO MY SONS because Ihad, from such unpromising conditions, gained the measure of success which was mine it was my duty to tell the young men who read The American how it all happened. I said I could not write about myself that the thought of exhibiting myself in print to the rude and uncharitable gaze of the public was abhorrent to me. I argued that my life, whatever it had been, was my own private business and that I proposed to keep it so. Sid, in his characteristic way, insisted that I was all wrong...
