As a sequel to We, Us and Others, the events in this book took place many years later. The Gods had, in a previous occasion, come down to earth and observed how human beings were misbehaving. An emissary was sent down to observe man especially with regard to how he ruled himself. This, therefore, had a lot to do with politics as seen in its rudimentary, but very effective, form in WADICO, quarrels between towns, corruption in big cities as well as philosophical arguments in the court. The truth was essentially of no consequence. He also got firsthand information about an unjust war, observed sexual promiscuity and deviance, as well as even the religious members of the society tampering with charitable donations. In all it was a narrative in the form of a story that highlights man and his inadequacies in the fields of corruption, politics and morality.

This volume is a collection of fourteen original essays and one poem in honor of the prominent medievalist Gerard J. Brault, upon the occasion of his retirement from teaching at the Pennsylvania State University. World-renowned for his contributions to the French medieval epic (in particular "La Chanson de Roland") and French-Canadian cultural studies, Professor Brault is affectionately remembered as "Mr. Song of Roland" by his colleagues for his unique interpretation of Roland as a triumphant christian hero, rather than a tragic feudal warrior. Among the friend, former students, colleagues, and admirers who contributed to this festschrift are; William Calin (preface), Jeanette Beer, Keight Busby, Kimberlee Campbell, Robert Francis Cook, Bernard Guidot, Edward Heinemann, Catherine Jones, Hans-Erich Keller, Donald Maddox, Andre de Mandach, Emanuel Mickel, Rupert Pickens, Jean Subrenat, Joan Williamson, Jacques Ribard, and the editors, David and Mary Jane Schenck. All essays center on aspects of "La Chanson de Roland" and the French medieval epic in general.

An emotional story of love, betrayal, friendship, and family from #1 New York Times bestselling author Maeve Binchy. David Power and Clare O'Brien both grew up dreaming of escape from the battered seaside town of Castlebay, Ireland, but they might as well have had the ocean between them. David is the cherished son of a prosperous doctor, while Clare lives with her large family behind their faltering store, longing for a moment of quiet to study. When they both go to university in Dublin—he as a matter of course, she on a hard-won scholarship—their worlds collide. They find freedom in each other—until the families, lovers, and secrets they left in Castlebay come back to haunt them... “Laughter and tears, it’s what Binchy does best.”—San Francisco Chronicle Book Review “The Castlebay Maeve Binchy creates is a marvelous place.”—The New York Times Book Review

What began as a list of names, a box of documents, a number of family Bibles, and idle curiosity gradually evolved into a book about the settlement of Virginia and the western conquest of the great Valley of the Shenandoah, the birth of the New River settlements, and the emergence of the Watauga and Holston pioneers on the western slopes of the Appalachian Mountains. Placing the generations into a format of historic events began to bring these fugitives from the European wars and catastrophes into focus as real people. Since this story concerns the early foundation of this nation, the author did not choose to go back beyond the immigration from Europe. In a few cases, however, where the material was available and explanatory, it was incorporated into these pages. This does not mean that the more remote history of others was not available. It just did not contribute to the integrity of this book. The book is not a genealogy although it uses that structure to build the generations. And it is not simply a history. It is a perspective of history, demonstrated through the genealogy and migrations of one family. The whole is dependent upon each life among the hundreds of those who made this family possible. Make no mistake about it! The loss of a single one—just one!—and the people that followed would never have been born! The relations are carefully delineated. Children are named where it is possible. To this extent, it is hoped other lineages may find the book useful. The appendix contains copies from books and papers that might be difficult or impossible to obtain. It is important to realize that as the reader goes backward in time, the numbers of people become fewer. This means that the chances of interrelations increase as the two hundredth year marker of the past is approached. All of us share a kinship in the origin and the destiny of the United States of America!
