Category: Juvenile Fiction
Seventeen years ago, in the island village of Dentro, lived a large and powerful demon. With just a howl, mountains were obliterated. With the help of an outsider, the chief of Dentro destroyed the demon and sealed its dark power within three powerful ancient weapons: a spear, a shield, and a sword. After leaving the unwelcoming village, the man who had helped destroy the demon took the sword in an effort to keep the village and its people safe. Months later, a villager bore the son of the outsider. Carrying the child of a stranger was in violation of a sacred village law, and everyone knew whose child the boy was. Born into a village filled with hateful people, Zephyr grew up not knowing why he was so hated. With no friends, and eventually no family after the passing of his mother, Zephyr was forced to survive by himself as an outcast. Zephyr's only wish was to make his mother proud and force the village to recognize him--while surviving in a world filled with demons, paranormal abilities, love, hate, and undiscovered lands.

Shelley's Ode is addressed to the West Wind, to Zephyr. The word 'zephyr' has

Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,7, University of Heidelberg, 13 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Percy Bysshe Shelley is one of the most famous Romantic poets of the 19th century. Throughout his life he has written a lot of works that impressed people. One of these works is the poem 'Ode to the West Wind' which was written in 1819. This paper is about 'Ode to the West Wind' and gives information on it, such as its outer appearance. It focuses on how Shelley describes the 'wind' and which symbols he uses in this poem. First some information about the term 'ode' itself. The ode is a lyric poem with great length that deals with a "lofty theme in a dignified manner ." There are three types of English odes: the Pindaric, the Cowley and the Horation ode. The Pindaric Ode is a ceremonious poem with Pindar's style. Pindar was "a Greek professional lyrist of the 5th century BC. He employed the triadic structure of Stesichorus, [...] consisting of a strophe [...] followed by a metrically harmonious antistrophe, concluding with a summary line in a different metre. " The most important odes were those of Abraham Cowley and Andrew Marvell. Marvell, for example, used "a simple and regular stanza [...] modelled on Horace" with the rhyme scheme aabb; the first two lines had four stresses, whereas the last two lines had only three stresses. Cowley wrote Pindaric odes "which had irregular patterns of line lengths and rhyme schemes, though they were iambic." Shelley's Ode is of the Horation type; in it he describes the activities of the west wind on earth, on the sea and also in the sky. He also expresses "his envy for the boundless freedom of the west wind, and his wish to be free like the wind and to scatter his words among mankind."
Shelley reforges the links between his Zephyr and the word's etymologies. His west wind drives dark stormclouds across the sky, and it is literally 'life-bearing', it
carries 'winged seeds'. Shelley returns to the literary and etymological origins of ...

With a multitude of statistics and scientific information, he explains what is causing the Salt Lake basin's "lake stink," how wide-open spaces influence Texas's fearsome windstorms called "Blue Northers," and why Albuquerque's "box effect" draws balloonists from around the world.

"Craig Sanders has done an excellent job of research... his treatment is as comprehensive as anyone could reasonably wish for, and solidly based. In addition, he succeeds in making it all clear as well as any human can. He also manages to inject enough humor and human interest to keep the reader moving." —Herbert H. Harwood, author of The Lake Shore Electric Railway Story and Invisible Giants: The Empires of Cleveland’s Van Sweringen Brothers A complete history of Amtrak operations in the heartland, this volume describes conditions that led to the passage of the Rail Passenger Service Act of 1970, the formation and implementation of Amtrak in 1970–71, and the major factors that have influenced Amtrak operations since its inception. More than 140 photographs and 3 maps bring to life the story as told by Sanders. This book will become indispensable to train enthusiasts through its examination of Americans’ long-standing fascination with passenger trains. When it began in 1971, many expected Amtrak to last about three years before going out of existence for lack of business, but the public’s continuing support of funding for Amtrak has enabled it and the passenger train to survive despite seemingly insurmountable odds.

In the 1830s, The United States underwent a second revolution. The opening of the Baltimore & Ohio line, the first American railroad, set in motion a process which, by the end of the century, would enmesh the vast country in a latticework of railroad lines, small-town stations and magisterial termini, built and controlled the biggest corporations in America. By the middle of the twentieth century, however, as the automobile and the aeroplane came to dominate American journey-making, the historic importance of the railroads began to be erased from America's hearts and minds. In The Great Railway Revolution, Christian Wolmar tells us the extraordinary one-hundred-and-eighty-year story of the rise, fall and ultimate shattering of the greatest of all American endeavours, of technological triumph and human tragedy, of visionary pioneers and venal and rapacious railway barons. He also argues that while America has largely disowned this heritage, now is the time to celebrate, reclaim and reinstate it. The growth of the US railroads was much more than just a revolution in mode, speed and convenience. They united the far-flung components of a vast and disparate country and supercharged the economic development that fuelled its rise to world-power status. America was created by its railroads and the massive expansion of trade, industry and freedom of communication that they engendered came to be an integral part of the American dream itself.
