THE COUNTRY OF THE POINTED FIRS

By SARAH ORNE JEWETT

“This novel, written in 1896, is about the area of Maine my wife, Nancy, and I treasure. The cottage that Miss Jewett wrote from, and about, is just steps from our property in Martinsville, Maine. The book can be read as a study of the effects of isolation and hardship on the inhabitants of fishing villages along the coast. You can almost smell the balsam fir in the pages of this quaint little book.”

WHERE THE RED FERN GROWS

By WILSON RAWLS

“This well-loved classic is a family favorite in our home. The heartwarming story of the love and loyalty, and ultimately loss, between a boy and his hunting dogs and the rich description of life and survival on the American frontier, reflect on a former age while teaching everlasting character qualities to all generations.”

FEEL THE FEAR AND DO IT ANYWAY

By SUSAN JEFFERS, PH.D.

“I have always been a fan of self-improvement books and this is one of many that I have read multiple times. LIFE IS FULL OF FEAR, ESPECIALLY IN SALES! This book taught me to create feelings of excitement and success, and to convert any fear into positive change. I recommend it for those who are interested in building their careers, to all students and to anyone considering a change of path.”

THE FAIRIES OF TURTLE CREEK

By JILL K. SAYRE

“I love to support local authors! A charming story about believing in magic, this book was loved by my young teenage nieces. Set in Highland Park, Texas, in both modern times and the 1920s, it’s a perfect read for the Centennial Celebration of Highland Park and its school district.”

CHARLOTTE’S WEB

By E.B. WHITE

“I read this for the first time in, I think, the 3rd grade, and was thoroughly swept into the barnyard world of Charlotte and Wilbur. All the great themes are present in this work: birth, life, death, honesty, truth, loyalty, friendship, and caring. It’s a truly heartbreaking and inspiring book.”
