Sifting Through the Ashes of Me

$15.00
More Info

Take a stroll outside the lines with Providence actor and poet Jason "Jay" Walker, as he zigzags and crisscrosses down Memory Lane, "sifting through" and arranging his early poems, which chronicle his life over twenty years, through high school, college and his involvement with and departure from the local Slam(TM) and poetry scene, in order to recapture the creative spark that drives him. It's two decades of growth, as a poet and a person, marked in meter (and sometimes in rhymes) to show the world and, hopefully, the author that they're not alone.

Telephone Man

$10.00
More Info
Mary Ann (Maitland) Mayer grew up in Lincoln, Rhode Island. She practiced occupational therapy in and around Boston, New Bedford, and Providence for twenty-five years, and is the author of several clinical articles and textbook chapters. She holds degrees from Boston University and Tufts University. Mary Ann has been writing poetry for ten years. She is a member of the writers' community at the William Joiner Center for the Study of War and Social Consequences at the University of Massachusetts in Boston. Her poems have appeared in journals including Mediphors, Poesy, and Crone's Nest, and in anthologies published by 1st Books, Feminist Writers Guild, and Outriders Press. She is a past recipient of a Massachusetts Cultural Council award. Mary Ann is proud that Telephone Man is her first book of poetry. She considers the opportunity to collaborate with her father and to render his experiences into poems, a gift. About Telephone Man, she says: Although the diction and images of this book are unique and mark a departure from my usual poetry, I always enjoy imaginatively rendering real experiences, and the grittier the better. I feel that poetry is an ideal way to evoke meaning from the commonplace, and to shine a light into the hidden corners of daily life. With her loving and creative husband Carl Peter (Pete) Mayer and their gifted bird dog Emma (pen-named Ezra Hound), she divides her time between Sharon, Massachusetts and Franconia, New Hampshire.

Congratulations! You own or are about to own one of the most distinguished breeds of the twentieth century, the American Pit Bull Terrier. Your dog is automatically feared and respected by other people, and it's up to you to be his caretaker and ambassador.

This book will help you do both-and more. In the caretaking department, ""The Ultimate American Pit Bull Terrier"" will tell you everything you need to know about feeding your dog from puppyhood to old age. It will explain grooming essentials, like trimming toenails, cleaning ears, checking teeth, brushing and bathing. It will describe basic health concerns, from vaccination schedules to flea control to what to do in an emergency.

As for being an ambassador for your breed, ""The Ultimate American Pit Bull Terrier"" will tell you all sorts of fun facts about the Pit Bull's history so you can boast about your dog and help people understand him for who he really is. Did you know The Little Rascals' devoted companion, Petey, was a Pit Bull? Or that the Pit Bull was the symbol of American strength and courage during World War I? It's true; the Pit Bull was once the all-American dog, a companion cherished for his excellent way with children, his playfulness and his doggy demeanor. In most homes, he still is. But it's also true that today Pit Bulls are associated more with crime than with companionship.

""The Ultimate American Pit Bull Terrier"" celebrates the breed for the kind of dog it is with the right owners. A dog with physical and mental stature whose intelligence, charm and energy make him a superb friend, fellow athlete and playmate.
