    Paul Strauss is a legendary modern-era settler, a NYC kid who came to Meigs County, Ohio in 1970 and fell in love with its mix of breathtaking woodland beauty and mine-scarred hillsides. Paul bought land and worked it in the old-time fashion, learning tricks and skills from a man who had grown up in those hills learning from his father, and his father, back to the first white settlers and the First Nation people. Over time, Paul was able to reclaim much of the strip-mined land, restoring forest and wildlife to areas that had gone barren in the wake of coal mining. And he was able to synthesize a rich lore of knowledge passed on from the First Nations about medicinal herbs and the ways to put them to best use. Fifty years on, Paul has codified an enormous amount of detail information about the forest, flora and fauna with whom he shares his paradise, and which supports him in all ways. His Equinox Botanicals provides hand-made products from his FDA-approved apothecary, serving customers globally with high quality natural medicines at affordable prices in a sustainable manner. The Big Herbs is Paul''s story -- how he came to find this place and build a life and personal economy that graces the land gently and seeks to celebrate and protect its treasures.

    A novel by Steven Schaefer tracing the life and death of Vincent van Gogh, and exploring whether van Gogh's death might have been murder. An American couple in modern-day France are renovating an old house outside Paris when they uncover evidence of political intrigues from 1880's France and Europe. They find a journal that seems to be in Vincent van Gogh's hand, and a gun that may have been used to kill him, then hidden away. Their eager curiosity to trace the history of their house and the items they've found lead them into a perilous adventure with art thieves, as they uncover more and more evidence that Vincent was similarly imperiled by political forces that still factor in European politics now.

    Set in early 1950s Cuba, this novel explores the earliest days of what became the M-26-7 movement -- the Cuban Revolution.

    Swollen seas, erotic monsters, Greek passion gone Latin, deftlyThis 1st-century AD Latin version of the earlier Greek epic features exotic lands, wondrous monsters and a sea voyage over swells of young love. Valerius Flaccus lent sharp Roman refinements and erotic passion to the tale, which are skillfully sustained in this careful and appealing modern translation in English verse.Apollonius Rhodius’ epic poem Argonautica, written in Greek during the 3rd century BC, has become the de facto standard version of the story of Jason and the Argonauts and their quest for the Golden Fleece. Valerius Flaccus’ Latin epic of the last 1st century AD is by contrast little known, even to those well-read in ancient literature. This translation offers an accurate and appealing version in English verse.Flaccus’ Argonautica lends keen Roman touches to the tale, amplifying the sense of adventure and the erotic passion found in the Greek. It offers vicarious travel to exotic lands, gripping heroism before wondrous monsters and a dream team of famous Greek heroes. The stirring sea voyage is spiced by the blossoming love of Jason and Medea, young passion not yet gone sour. Michael Barich’s deft translation and lyrical grace notes will delight devotees and newcomers to this timeless classic.Many know of this tale via the 1963 Columbia Pictures film, with its stop-motion animation by Ray Harryhausen. Not many know (why would they?) that the cover artwork by Kenyon student Thomas Chappell Lewis was made on Post-it Notes. Examine the cover carefully and you’ll see them. And now you’re one of not-many.
