Bringing to bear his long experience teaching Virginia history, Wallenstein takes readers back, even before Jamestown, to the Elizabethan settlers at Roanoke Island and the inhabitants they encountered, as well as to Virginias leaders of the American Revolution. He chronicles the states dramatic journey through the Civil War era, a time that revealed how the nations evolution sometimes took shape in opposition to the vision of many leading Virginians.

He also examines the impact of the civil rights movement and considers controversies that accompany Virginia into its fifth century. The text is copiously illustrated to depict not only such iconic figures as Pocahontas, George Washington, and Robert E. Lee, but also such other prominent native Virginians as Carter G.

7 Classic Kurt Vonnegut Books You Should Read

I loved these tiny fables. Craig Morgan Teicher does a great job fitting a world inside of words. They are poetic and abstract while also appearing reminiscent of the bedtime stories we were read to as children.

My first reading of Teicher and I'm excited to grab some of his other collections. Jul 30, M rated it it was ok. A book that is supposed to hold fables and stories should offer more than one-page, unended anecdotes.

Dec 28, Christopher Hendrix rated it really liked it. Lightly-wrapped philosophy and open-ended fables made for an enjoyable book for me. I can absolutely understand how some people would dislike how open Teicher leaves the stories, and how underdeveloped they seem because of their length.

I'd suggest anyone who's interested in folklore in current literature pick up a copy. Also good for anyone who wants to see a talented writer stick his tongue out at genre definitions. Dec 24, C rated it it was ok Shelves: myth , poetry , slow-moves , Another disappointing "top 10" from the New Yorker. I think I'm conclusively indifferent to anything the New Yorker says about poetry after I finish reading the other books I put on hold that Dan Chiasson recommended.

Mar 16, Hailey Bruce rated it really liked it. Read in forty seven minutes. I've been really into flash fiction lately. I liked this book a lot although some stories were significantly better than others. The author does a nice job of coming up with unique ideas within the conventions of fables and folklore. There is, of course, more to the tale. Tell us what you think. Please upgrade your browser. See next articles.
