The Dust Bowl was the largest ecological disaster in United States history, coinciding with the nation's worst economic crisis, the Great Depression of the 1930s. Massive dust storms, combined with nearly a decade of drought, wreaked havoc on parts of Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, and Arkansas. The storms were a relentless threat to the environment and the health and welfare of those in their path. The effects of the dust storms were far-reaching, impacting not just the farmers and their families, but the state of California. Many who were forced off their land viewed the state as a mecca and it became the new home for millions of former Midwesterners. However, many families stayed in the Great Plains and reluctantly turned to the federal government for assistance to make ends meet. The government's new role as a provider of economic relief and social aid was met with gratitude by some and anger by others.

Chr‚tien de Troyes is arguably the creator of Arthurian romance, and it is on his work that later writers have based their interpretations. This book offers both crucial information on, and a comprehensive coverage of, all aspects of the work of Chr‚tien de Troyes - the literary and historical background, patronage, his influence on other writers, manuscripts and editions of his work and, at the heart of the volume, major essays on his themes, techniques and artistic achievements in each of his compositions; the contributions, all from leading experts in Chr‚tien and related studies, have been commissioned especially for this volume and are designed to remain accessible to students while also addressing specialists in Arthurian studies and Chr‚tien de Troyes. They reflect the most current critical and scholarly views on one of the greatest of medieval authors. CONTRIBUTORS: JOHN W. BALDWIN, JUNE HALL MCCASH, LAURENCE HARF-LANCNER, NORRIS J.

A look at life and the afterlife, after most of my immediate family died, including two kids to Cystic Fibrosis. I also lost parents, two siblings, a husband, and many others in a very short time. They have come to me and others after their deaths. I saw signs from the day they passed. Coping with Multiple Sclerosis while caring for so many others, you get through it by faith and believing life really is just a test run for what's in store for us all. I think after reading this book, you will see that nothing is impossible if you put your mind to your goals. Even through so much tragedy, you can still go on by helping others throughout what you have learned.
The Poet: A lover who is never loved/ he between two realms be shoved/ the spiritual/ and carnal laws/ each forcing him upon their claws/ Yet with each breath a labor be/ and every beat of heart be freed/ he writes each line/ with silver tears/ and watches as a poem appears/ Then deep within his hollow eyes/ a frightened little child cries/ hoping they/ will hear his voice/ long after he has made his choice/ -Robb Sansonetti
