A long way from town, down a long road that shimmers in the summer sun and winds through the parched expanse of the desert, way out across the plains, where grain stalks whisper and roll in the breeze like waves in an immense, bronzed ocean, up into the mountains, way up high where the trees grow so tall they touch the sky, there's a Secret Forest... Give your quiet moments over to The Secret Forest, where you will join mystical travelers and creatures of the wood as they encounter the forest, witness its creative power, and learn if by the fates they will merely visit, or be forever entwined. The Secret Forest is an illustrated compilation of 8 stories written in a flowing, visual style, conceived as bedtime stories for young children, but suitable to enrich the vocabulary and fire the imagination of older children with a passion for reading, a taste for the magical, and an appreciation for the wonders of nature.

Gossip from the Forest

Fairytales are one of our earliest and most vital cultural forms, and forests one of our most ancient landscapes. Both evoke a similar sensation in us - we find them beautiful and magical, but also spooky, sometimes horrifying. In this fascinating book, Maitland argues that the two forms are intimately connected: the mysterious secrets and silences, gifts and perils of the forests were both the background and the source of the fairytales made famous by the Grimms and Hans Christian Andersen. Yet both forests and fairy stories are at risk and their loss deprives us of our cultural lifeblood. Maitland visits forests through the seasons, from the exquisite green of a beechwood in spring, to the muffled stillness of a snowy pine wood in winter. She camps with her son Adam, whose beautiful photographs are included in the book; she takes a barefoot walk through Epping Forest with Robert Macfarlane; she walks with a mushroom expert through an oak wood, and with a miner through the Forest of Dean. Maitland ends each chapter with a unique, imaginitive re-telling of a fairytale. Written with Maitland's wonderful clarity and conversational grace, Gossip from the Forest is a magical and unique blend of nature writing, history and imaginative fiction.

"The Secret Island" – Aided by Jack, an orphan they have befriended, the Arnold children run away to an island on a nearby lake, and together they make a new home constructed with the branches of a willow tree. "The Secret of Spiggy Hole" – The Arnold children discover that their parents are alive and reunite with them.

Children get drawn into a kidnapping case as they discover a boy named Paul, Prince of Baronia, being held prisoner in a castle tower nearby. "The Secret Mountain" – Captain and Mrs. Arnold are flying off in their plane, the White Swallow, and apparently have crash-landed in a remote part of Africa.

"The Secret of Killimooin" – Prince Paul invites the Arnold's to his palace in Baronia for the holidays; but it is so hot there in the roasting summer that the entire royal household adjourns to their castle up in the mountains. Bands of robbers are marauding the countryside, terrorizing the local people, and Paul is incensed, and determined to find the robbers and have them detained. "The Secret of Moon Castle" – The Arnolds are invited to spend some time in the castle with Prince Paul's family. They are all soon puzzled by strange events happening in the castle: odd noises that occur, eyes in portraits that shine mysteriously, lights that shine in tower rooms, despite being locked tight.

As Bali changes from a sleepy agriculturally- based island living its culture on a daily basis, to a dynamic tourism-based resort replacing the traditional with modern and Balinese culture with Western lifestyle, I decided that we needed to record as much as possible for the future. Who better to turn to than the exceptionally talented Jill Gocher whose ability to capture life beautifully with her camera is outstanding. The result, in the pages of this book, is Bali away from the tourist track where life continues as it has for centuries. But even this has another side, another aspect: the myths and legends that underlie so much of Balinese culture. For this we turned to immensely talented historian, art critic and art custodian Jean Couteau, who has been regularly writing on aspects of Balinese culture and belief in NOW! Bali. So this marvellous combination of talents came together to create “Secret Bali”, to bring the “seen” and the “unseen” elements of Balinese life together in these pages.

This book is the fictional story of one mans journey from agnostic concerning unusual phenomena into the realm of belief in the existence of the Big Foot in the swamps of West Florida. Inspired by the natural beauty of present day Myakka River State Park, not far from Sarasota, Florida, the story deals with human vulnerability to belief and how our natural propensity to adopt beliefs without scientific proof of their validity can be manipulated and used by others for their own purposes. The story is mostly seen through the eyes of Mike Byrne, a member of the local Palmetto County Historical Society, as he volunteers to interview the oldest known citizen of the county, Sadie Sutton. He gradually becomes convinced there is more to her distant past than what she is willing to disclose for the society records. He becomes open to the ideas of the speaker at a presentation sponsored by the local Almas Association where his suspicions quickly evolve into the belief that Sadie carries the blood of the DeBosi in her veins. As he struggles with his desire to prove his belief is true, Mike is drawn into the carefully structured snare of those who seek to use his belief for their own purposes. In this story, the end justifies the means in the name of a noble cause, and the swamp where Sadie has lived all her life is preserved. However, there is concern that belief, once encouraged and nurtured, may put in motion forces that will destroy the objectives of those who seek to take advantage of others. Jon C. Hall
