              Soon after King Arthur died, Merlin found another home to take the remaining knights and their families. It was a world similar to Earth but possessed no metals which could kill or maim. Animals and beings from other times lived there: unicorns, mammoths, Elaven & harrimen lived ...alongside jachawks and jaclets in perfect peace with the human latecomers. But the humans eventually brought forth a leader who lusted after metal and urged his followers to discover any place it may exist. Their resultant search in the mountains where Merlin's soul resided disturbed him, forcing him to send out a message over the ley lines to any of his descendants for help. Francis Steel and others of his kin responded, entering a world unlike anything they could imagine but not knowing what for or why or how to return home. Merlin's Kin includes a discussion guide for academic classes, book clubs, journaling, or self-reflection.

              A Yankee Horseman in the Shenandoah Valley: The Civil War Letters of John H. Black, Twelfth Pennsylvania Cavalry
               

              A Yankee Horseman in the Shenandoah Valley: The Civil War Letters of John H. Black, Twelfth Pennsylvania Cavalry (Hardback)

              In many ways, John H. Black typified the thousands of volunteers who fought for the Union during the Civil War. Born in 1834 and raised on his family s farm near Allegheny Township, Pennsylvania, Black taught school until he, like many Pennsylvanians, rushed to defend the Union a...fter the attack on Fort Sumter in April 1861. He served with the Twelfth Pennsylvania Cavalry, one of the Union s most unruly, maligned, and criticized units.Consistently outperformed early in the conflict, the Twelfth finally managed to salvage much of its reputation by the end of the war. Throughout his service, Black penned frequent and descriptive letters to his fiancee and later wife, Jennie Leighty Black. This welcome volume presents this complete correspondence for the first time, offering a surprisingly full record of the cavalryman s service from 1862 to 1865 and an intimate portrait of a wartime romance. In his letters, Black reveals his impassioned devotion to the cause, frequently expressing his disgust toward those who would not enlist and his frustration with friends who were not appropriately patriotic. Despite the Twelfth Pennsylvania s somewhat checkered history, Black consistently praises both the regiment s men and their service and demonstrates a strong camaraderie with his fellow soldiers. He offers detailed descriptions of the regiment s vital operations in protecting Unionists and tracking down and combating guerrillas, in particular John Singleton Mosby and his partisan rangers, providing a rare first-person account of Union counterinsurgency tactics in the Lower Shenandoah Valley. In the midst of portraying heated and chaotic military operations, Black makes Jennie a prominent character in his war, illustrating the various ways in which the conflict altered or nurtured romantic relationships. One of the few compilations of letters by a long-term Yankee cavalry member and the only such collection by a member of the Twelfth Pennsylvania, A Yankee Horseman in the Shenan
