Creating An Enchanted Place
Have you ever sat in a classroom and dreamed of being somewhere else, an enchanted place perhaps? This book combines the knowledge and attitudes of over 60 years of successful teaching and work in creating enchanting learning places with the tenets of the Secret, the Universal Law of Attraction. It describes, documents, explains, and suggests ways, some new and some Biblically old, to look at classrooms and learning places. It is a fascinating read about the holy task of teaching. It is novel at times, and a workbook at other times. It is always passionate.
Pioneer Women of the Northwest:
There are books about pioneers that depict some of the history of the Great Migration West. Some of the women are well known and much has been written and spoken about them. This book is different. It grew from the loving looks into family trunks, family trees, or out of conversations with the oldest resident, or research and material from various historical societies and libraries of the northwest. The students in the class Women of the Northwest, Unsung Pioneers at Oregon State University during the bicentennial provided most of the material. If you had an ancestor or know anyone who had an ancestor who gathered in St. Louis, Missouri for the trip west, you probably will find the name in this book. It is the compilation of pieces of the lives of incredible women who traveled the Oregon Trail or ended up in the Oregon Territory.
