In Sergeant-Major Rundle's narrative we have the interesting story of how an honest English boy became attracted to the colors; how the British army lives, moves and has its being in the British Isles and in the Dominions beyond the seas; how that boy rose by honest effort to the highest non-commissioned position in that army; and most interesting of all, his experience on foreign service when his regiment took part in the Trent affair and Fenian raids, following the close of the American civil war.
How often do we ask ourselves, 'What will make me happy? What do I really want from life?' In A Life of One's Own Marion Milner explores these questions and embarks on a seven year personal journey to discover what it is that makes her happy.
On its first publication, W. H. Auden found the book 'as exciting as a detective story' and, as Milner searches out clues, the reader quickly becomes involved in the chase. Using her own personal diaries, kept over many years, she analyses moments of everyday life and discovers ways of being, of looking, of moving, that bring surprising joy - ways which can be embraced by anyone.
With a new introduction by Rachel Bowlby this classic remains a great adventure in thinking and living and will be essential reading for all those interested in reflecting on the nature of their own happiness - whether readers from a literary, an artistic, a historical, an educational or a psychoanalytic/psychotherapeutic background.

Trees for All Seasons is a book of poems about trees. The author uses various poetic styles, as well as colorful images, personification, and flights of fantasy to write about trees and their transformations throughout the seasons. In this book, you will read about tree swings and sweet figs, spring blossoms switching on like light bulbs and autumn leaves shaped like lemon drops and paper lanterns. You'll read of blood-thirsty dinosaur trees hovering over a quiet street and yogi trees saluting the morning sun, standing dead trees in Yellowstone Park and jet black, gothic forests on an alien world.
One stormy day a strong wind rages through the forest, causing an old oak tree to bend and sway. Lightning strikes; the tree crashes to the ground. Now it's a giant log.
