It had been less that a year since man first walked on the moon, but as far as the American public was concerned, Apollo 13 was just another "routine" space flight - until these words pierced the immense void of space: "Houston, we have a problem." Ron Howard directs Academy Award winner Tom Hanks, Kevin Bacon, Bill Paxton, Gary Sinise and Ed Harris in a riveting suspense-thriller from Imagine Entertainment. Stranded 205,000 miles from Earth in a crippled spacecraft, astronauts Jim Lovell (Hanks), Fred Haise (Paxton) and Jack Swigert (Bacon) fight a desperate battle to survive. Meanwhile, at Mission Control, astronaut Ken Mattingly (Sinise), flight director Gene Kranz (Harris) and a heroic ground crew race against time - and odds - to bring them home. It's a breathtaking adventure that tells a story of courage, faith and ingenuity that is all the more remarkable because it is true!

In an age defined by crew cuts, sport coats, and cheerless conformity, he not only broke the mold ... he reinvented it. Academy Award(R) winner Robin Williams (Best Supporting Actor, GOOD WILL HUNTING, 1997) delivers an extraordinary performance in one of the most compelling motion pictures of all time. Williams stars as English professor John Keating, a passionate iconoclast who changes his students' lives forever when he challenges them to live life to the fullest and "Carpe Diem" -- seize the day! Keating's unconventional approach meets with irrepressible enthusiasm from his students, but the faculty at staid, exclusive Welton Academy prep school is, to put it mildly, not amused. Featuring a star-marking performance by Ethan Hawke and over three hours of never-before-seen bonus materials, this Special Edition of DEAD POETS SOCIETY will captivate and inspire you again and again.

Heart Stone

product image
$15.99

A debut historical fantasy that recasts Jane Austen's beloved Pride & Prejudice in an imaginative world of wyverns, dragons, and the warriors who fight alongside them against the monsters that threaten the kingdom: gryphons, direwolves, lamias, banshees, and lindworms.

They say a Rider in possession of a good blade must be in want of a monster to slay--and Merybourne Manor has plenty of monsters.

Passionate, headstrong Aliza Bentaine knows this all too well; she's already lost one sister to the invading gryphons. So when Lord Merybourne hires a band of Riders to hunt down the horde, Aliza is relieved her home will soon be safe again.

Her relief is short-lived. With the arrival of the haughty and handsome dragonrider, Alastair Daired, Aliza expects a battle; what she doesn't expect is a romantic clash of wills, pitting words and wit against the pride of an ancient house. Nor does she anticipate the mystery that follows them from Merybourne Manor, its roots running deep as the foundations of the kingdom itself, where something old and dreadful slumbers . . . something far more sinister than gryphons.

It's a war Aliza is ill-prepared to wage, on a battlefield she's never known before: one spanning kingdoms, class lines, and the curious nature of her own heart.

Elle Katharine White infuses elements of Austen's beloved novel with her own brand of magic, crafting a modern epic fantasy that conjures a familiar yet wondrously unique new world.

The Delightful Horror of Family Birding

The Delightful Horror of Family Birding
$16.95
"For the nature lover with a sense of humor."
--SIERRA MAGAZINE

"You don't have to be a birder to love this entertaining and beautifully-written book--although you may become one after you've finished it!"
--FORBES

"Eli J. Knapp has done a marvelous job capturing a balance of science and humor in his latest collection of essays. The Delightful Horror of Family Birding eminently burnishes birding's reputation, making the science accessible... Knapp gives the reader plenty of detail to appreciate precisely what the clever book title promises."
--THE UTAH REVIEW

"Knapp pays attention, not just to birds, the landscape, and the sights and sounds around him, but also to people's responses to those things, including his own, and to human interactions with each other and to nature. His is an astute perspective, a perpetual student of life, humans, and nature, and his stories are consistently fun and thought-provoking."
--BIRD WATCHER'S DIGEST

"Pithy, funny, and wise essays about forays into nature...Knapp writes wittily of nature's nuances. Tales of field trips with students, birding with family, or the fun of leading bird walks ('Look! Butterbutts!') all contribute to the cheerful wonder Knapp evokes."
--BOOKLIST

"A firsthand account for those interested in a blend of natural history, education, and conservation and how they can be shared family passions."
--LIBRARY JOURNAL

"Eli J. Knapp's The Delightful Horror of Family Birding trots the globe with humor, insight, and deep-seated appreciation for nature and bird-watching...focuses on its subject with wit, erudition, and passion as vast as a great flock darkening the daytime sky."
--FOREWORD REVIEWS

"Eli J. Knapp lets nature lead him and thereby--in this important collection of essays--he leads us to deeper perceptions of the bounty of nature. Humorous, a little irreverent. You learn about birds without even knowing."
--PETER KAHN, author of The Human Relationship with Nature

"I have a secret crush on Eli Knapp. He is a masterful storyteller--self-deprecating, witty, and always eager to learn life lessons from his experiences. His stories are fun, funny, moving, clever, and always full of birds!" --DAWN HEWITT, managing editor of Bird Watcher's Digest

"Eli Knapp's essays capture the special, quirky, inquisitive nature of bird watchers. Whether he's teaching his sometimes-receptive college students about birds or mixing birds and nature into a family outing, he weaves engaging tales of these experiences, leaving the reader wanting more of his well-told stories. He's at the head of the class among the new generation of nature writers."
--BILL THOMPSON III, editor of Bird Watcher's Digest

"An engaging and witty self-portrait of one man's amiable obsession--and an honest exploration of how he attempts to transmit this passion to his children and his students. A very fun read--and you'll learn a good deal of bird biology along the way." --THOMAS LOWE FLEISCHNER, editor of Nature, Love, Medicine: Essays on Wildness and Wellness

Eli Knapp takes readers from a leaky dugout canoe in Tanzania and the mating grounds of Ecuador's cock-of-the-rock to a juniper titmouse's perch at the Grand Canyon and the migration of hooded mergansers in a New York swamp, exploring life's deepest questions all along the way. In this collection of essays, Knapp intentionally flies away from the flock, reveling in insights gleaned from birds, his students, and the wide-eyed wonder his children experience.

The Delightful Horror of Family Birding navigates the world in hopes that appreciation of nature will burn intensely for generations to come, not peter out in merely a flicker. Whether traveling solo or with his students or children, Knapp levels his gaze on the birds that share our skies, showing that birds can be a portal to deeper relationships, ecological understanding, and newfound joy.

Eli J. Knapp, PhD, is professor of intercultural studies and biology at Houghton College and director of the Houghton in Tanzania program. Knapp is a regular contributor to Bird Watcher's Digest, New York State Conservationist, and other publications. An avid birdwatcher, hiker, and kayaker, he lives in Fillmore, New York, with his wife and children.

THE STORY OF GOD, THE STORY OF US (P)

THE STORY OF GOD, THE STORY OF US (P)
$15.00
"The ever present ache of exile rises above the comforting sounds of the river, as the image of the house of the LORD in ruins breaks the peace. . . . Despite the warmth of the fire, he feels a chill. He wraps his cloak around him and looks into the eager faces of his people, then closes his eyes. 'Picture this scene . . .'" Before the Bible was a book, it was flesh and blood. In this book, you can travel with Sean Gladding between the lines of the Scriptures to listen in on the conversations of people wrestling with the Story of God for the first time. Whether sitting around a campfire in Babylon, reclining at table in Asia Minor or huddled together by candlelight in Rome, you'll encounter a tale that is at once familiar and surprising. The Story of God, the Story of Us can be read alone but is especially rich shared with a group. Sean Gladding presents an account of the Bible that pays attention to its audience as well as its message. He introduces you to people who may remind you of yourself or your family, friends and coworkers. As much as the Bible is a story about God, it's also a story about you--and all of us--as we encounter God in a new way.
