"The White Squirrels of North Carolina" is a photo gift book of my award winning photos of the rare and beautiful white (not albino) squirrels found in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina. I took all the photos in Transylvania County with a variety of digital cameras including Sony, Kodak, Olympus, and Panasonic. http: //www.whitesquirrelart.com/
When Nancy Drew and her two close friends arrive for the Emerson University June Week celebration and learn there has been a mix-up in their motel reservations, the confusion leads to a baffling mystery.
Uncle John Rorick, a descendant of the early settlers of the town of Emerson, invites the three girls to be his guests at his historic mansion on Pine Hill. Shortly after their arrival, he tells them about the phantom who haunts the mansion’s library. Uncle John also relates the weird family saga of a lost French wedding gown and valuable gifts which went to the bottom of a nearby cove in the sinking of the Lucy Belle a hundred years before. Could there possibly be some connection between the phantom and the old ship disaster? Nancy wonders.
In between enjoying the university’s June Week boat races, river pageant, and fraternity dances, Nancy and her friends work diligently to solve the mystery of Pine Hill and to find the long-lost wedding treasures.
"Clever and formally audacious." -- Tom Spurgeon, The Comics Reporter "Kindt's fluid outlines, thick swatches of color fill-in, sleek figures, and predominant subdued duotone coloring effectively conjure the ambiguous living hell that crushes the characters' zeal while it forces them to go on until they're stabbed, knifed, poisoned, or shot. [Super Spy] rivals the power of the most complex and serious spy novels and films."--Booklist (starred review) on Super Spy "Matt Kindt's work on SUPER SPY blows my mind.

People wrote to me, men and women, who, like me, had lost their sons. Their letters brought the tears to my eyes anew. They were tender letters, and beautiful letters, most of them, and letters to make proud and glad, as well as sad, the heart of the man to whom they were written.... "Don't desert us now, Harry!" It was so that they put it, one after another, in those letters. "Ah, Harry-there is so much woe and grief and pain in the world that you, who can, must do all that is in your power to make them easier to bear!... Come back to us, Harry-make us laugh again!" -from Chapter IX Scottish vaudevillian SIR HARRY LAUDER was one of the most popular entertainers in the world before World War I, touring the globe numerous times to great acclaim. But he almost left the stage for good after his only child, Captain John Lauder, was killed in action in France just after Christmas 1916... until his wife, Nance, and his fans reminded him that his power to bring joy and laughter to the world was too important to be abandoned. Here, in this stirring 1918 book, Lauder (1870-1950) relates how he transformed sorrow to action, honoring his son's last words -"Carry on!"- by becoming the first performer to entertain troops in the battlefields, a dangerous mission (he regularly came under fire) he carried out in both world wars. Knighted in 1919 for his service to the British Empire, Lauder is an inspiration to this day, and this is a remarkable tale of a father's grief and a legacy that continues to affect soldiers and their families today.
