485 FAIRY TALES OF EASTERN EUROPE
Penfield 1-932043-26-8 6 x 9", 157 pages , Penfield 
This rich collection of folktales reflects the local and regional flavor of the Slavic people, although the same plots, motifs, and structural elements occur in stories told around the world. For example, in the tale "The Three Golden Hairs," we see the Soudiche, the eastern European equivalent of the greek fate Sisters. A peasant child is ordered to be killed to evade an ominous prophecy, is abandoned to die, but survives to fulfill the dire predictions, much like Oedipus in the play by Sophocles. The endangered child is found in a basket floating down the river, and eventually becomes part of the king's household as does the bliblical Moses. In Shakespeare's Hamlet, a message to kill the hero is secretly changed to save the bearer. An apple tree in this Slavic tale bears "The Fruit of Everlasting Youth," which evokes the Tree of Life in the Garden of Eden. The ages of man described by the Fate Sisters are quite similar to the ancient "Riddle of the Sphinx" A snake impedes the function of the Tree of Everlasting Youth, again reminiscent of Garden of Eden motifs. There are many more familiar themes in these tales; perhaps the reader will recognize Cinderella in the character of Marouckla, or Rumplestiltskin in the story of Kinkach Martinko. So enjoy this sparkling collection of richly imaginative folktales that stretch back in time and space to a tantalizingly remote past. Dr. Harry Oster, folklorist.

495 Brown, John Gary Soul in the Stone: Cemetery Art from America's Heartland
University of Kansas Press Reprint. , 1994 0700606343 cloth 256 pages, 223 black-and-white photographs, 8-1/2 x 11, cloth, University of Kansas Press 
John Gary Brown's richly evocative photographs remind us that cemeteries--shadowy markers of death and grief--also shine forth with life and art. By turns starkly sobering, nostalgic, provocative, and quirkily humorous, his photos capture the human spirit preserved in all of its amazing diversity.

Celebrating master stone sculptors as well as grassroots and ethnic folk artists, Brown's striking images document the rich traditions of cemetery art as found throughout Wisconsin, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Colorado, and New Mexico. The art itself manifests a great many idiosyncratic forms and subjects including an Egyptian sphinx, a gigantic baseball, a salesman's suitcase, a rolltop desk, a car-engine shrine, plexiglass-enclosed dolls, life-size limestone statuary, hovering marble angels, elaborate wrought-iron crosses, along with more modest traditional motifs in etched-grantie and concrete.

Brown's own artistry and insights illuminate the ways in which these works embody or reflect personal grief, family relationships, religious and ethnic values, social status, occupations, avocations, aesthetics, as well as unrealized hopes and dreams. Both informative and entertaining, his book provides a haunting tribute to this neglected art form.

"This is a very important book. Here is a portal opening on significances within cemetery monuments. Indeed here is a portal opening on worlds beyond the grave, beyond the graveyard."--John Stilgoe, author of Borderland: Origins of the American Suburb

"The book's power is its wonderful, evocative photographs. Using such illustrations, Brown defines the place of the gravestone and cemetery in the vernacular culture of America's heartland."--David C. Sloane, author of The Last Great Necessity: Cemeteries in American History

"A most welcome addition to the burgeoning literature on American cemeteries and gravemarkers, and, through its focus upon the nation's heartland, a significant contribution to the study of American regionalism."--Richard E. Meyer, editor of Cemeteries and Gravemarkers: Voices of American Culture

JOHN GARY BROWN is a professional photographer in Lawrence, Kansas. He has photographed cemeteries in most of the countries of Europe, in Mexico, and in the Middle East, as well as throughout the United States. His photographs have appeared in Smithsonian, Americana, and Architectural Digest.
