about

Roger Mitchell writes with a poet's eye for exact detail in his absorbing new book about his search for Israel Johnson--a ghostly presence who comes to haunt the reader as much as he did the author. This book might easily be thought of as a detective story in which the detective discovers himself at the center of a seeming crime. It's a lovely book, richly layered and beautifully written.

Roger Mitchell writes with a poet's eye for exact detail in his absorbing new book about his search for Israel Johnson--a ghostly presence who comes to haunt the reader as much as he did the author. This book might easily be thought of as a detective story in which the detective discovers himself at the center of a seeming crime. It's a lovely book, richly layered and beautifully written. 0815602596 XWritten in 1893 by two women from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Unveiling a Parallel is a remarkable precursor of Twentieth-century feminist utopian novels like Charlotte Perkins Gilman's Herland and Marge Piercy's Woman on the Edge of Time. 0815602618òIn this classic book, Carl Carmer describes the social life and customs of his native New York. Wandering from Buffalo to the Adirondacks across upstate New York, he heard folk tales, tall tales, stories of religious fervor and scandal. A born storyteller himself, Carmer writes about the beautiful Genesee, the Seneca and Tuscarora, the Cardiff Giant and the Loomis Gang, and the story of the Murdered Bride of Rensselaer County.
