And No Birds Sang

by Farley Mowat, And No Birds Sang Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download And No Birds Sang books, Feisty icon; passionate Canadian; unrelenting foe of all pretension; energetic provocateur-at-large and most importantly, superb and dedicated writer, there cannot be a Canadian alive who is unaware of the legacy that is Farley Mowat. And No Bird Sang and A Whale for the Killing are the first books in a new Douglas & McIntyre library of handsomely redesigned paperback editions of Farley Mowat's work. Turned away from the Royal Canadian Air Force for his apparent youth and frailty, Farley Mowat joined the infantry in 1940. The young second lieutenant soon earned the trust of the soldiers under his command, and was known to bend army rules to secure a stout drink, or find warm -- if non-regulation -- clothing. But when Mowat and his regiment engaged with elite German forces in the mountains of Sicily, the optimism of their early days as soldiers was replaced by despair. With a naturalist's eyes and ears, Mowat takes in the full dark depths of war -- and his moving account of military service, and the friends he left behind, is also a plea for peace. It is one of the most searing and unforgettable World War II memoirs from any Canadian.

No Birds Sing Here

by Daniel V. Meier, Jr., No Birds Sing Here Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download No Birds Sing Here books, In this indelible and deeply moving portrait of our time, two young people, Beckman and Malany, set out on an odyssey to find meaning and reality in the artistic life, and in doing so, unleash a barrage of humorous, unintended consequences. Becman and Malany's journey reflects the allegorical evolution of humanity from its primal state, represented by Beckman's dismal life as a dishwasher to the crude, medieval development of mankind in a pool hall, and then to the false but erudite veneer of sophistication of the academic world. The world these protagonists live in is a world without love. It has every other variety of human drive and emotion, but not love. Do they know it? Not yet. And they won't until they figure out why no birds sing here. Meier's writing is precise and detailed, whether the situation he describes is clear or ambiguous.

And No Birds Sing

by Craig Waddell, And No Birds Sing Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download And No Birds Sing books, Craig Waddell presents essays investigating Rachel Carson's influential 1962 book, Silent Spring. In his foreword, Paul Brooks, Carson's editor at Houghton Mifflin, describes the process that resulted in Silent Spring. In an afterword, Linda Lear, Carson's recent biographer, recalls the end of Carson's life and outlines the attention that Carson's book and Carson herself received from scholars and biographers, attention that focused so minutely on her life that it detracted from a focus on her work. The foreword by Brooks and the afterword by Lear frame this exploration within the context of Carson's life and work. Contributors are Edward P. J. Corbett, Carol B, Gartner, Cheryll Glotfelty, Randy Harris, M. Jimmie Killingsworth, Linda Lear, Ralph H. Lutts, Christine Oravec, Jacqueline S. Palmer, Markus J. Peterson, Tarla Rai Peterson, and Craig Waddell. Together, these essays explore Silent Spring's effectiveness in conveying its disturbing message and the rhetorical strategies that helped create its wide influence.

No Birds Sing Here

by Daniel V. Meier, Jr., No Birds Sing Here Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download No Birds Sing Here books, Satire at its best! In this indelible and deeply moving portrait of our time, two young people, Beckman and Malany set out on an odyssey to find meaning and reality in the artistic life, and in doing so unleash a barrage of humorous, unintended consequences. Beckman and Malany's journey reflects the allegorical evolution of humanity from its primal state, represented by Beckman's dismal life as a dishwasher to the crude, medieval development of manking in a pool hall, and then to the false but erudite veneer of sophistication of the academic world. The world these protagonists life in is a world without love. It has every other variety of drive and emotion, but not love. Do they know it? Not yet. And they won't until they figure out why no birds sing here. Meier's writing is precise and detailed, whether the situation he describes is clear or ambiguous. Fans of Franzen and Salinger will find Meier to be another sharp, provocative writer of our time.
