Defense of Socrates - Defense of Socrates There are times in every mans life where our actions and beliefs collide—these collisions are known as contradictions. There are endless instances in which we are so determined to make a point that we resort to using absurd overstatements, demeaning language, and false accusations in our arguments. This tendency to contradict ourselves often questions our character and morals.

Fools Crow by James Welch - Fools Crow by James Welch We turn back the clock as Welch draws on historical sources and Blackfeet cultural stories in order to explore the past of his ancestors.

The Russian Horse: Vitality, Personality, and Politics - Horses in Russia were necessary for so many things, it's no wonder they were presented in literature so often. They have a significant presence as far as the story line is concerned, due to the fact that most traveling is done with a horse or horses, horses are used for work, and, in Kasbich's case, they act as friends who will never share your secrets.
