As well as providing an historical overview of the series, the author raises important questions about the nature of literary criticism applied to children's literature.

How can you be in love with one man and violently attracted to another? When Jessie Cranfield and Michael D'Larghi take the stage to sing together at a local fundraiser in their hometown, the last thing Jessie expects is the electricity between them. Not only has she not seen Michael for years—but her fiancé is sitting in the audience. Michael is used to overcoming any obstacle in his path to achieve his goals. Now his goal is Jessie, the former girl-next-door from rural Cooma. But not even Michael can foresee that their attraction might uncover family secrets that could tear both their lives apart forever. A Montague–Capulet war has nothing on the Cranfields and D'Larghis. Can Jessie and Michael risk falling in love, or is it too much for their families to bear?

Dirty Little Secrets of the Vietnam War allows us to see what really happened to American forces in Southeast Asia, separating popular myth from explosive reality in a clear, concise manner. Containing more than two hundred examinations of different aspects of the war, the book questions why the American military ignored the lessons taught by previous encounters with insurgency forces; probes the use of group think and mind control by the North Vietnamese; and explores the role technology played in shaping the way the war was fought. Of course, the book also reveals the "dirty little secrets," the truth behind such aspects of the conflict as the rise of the Montagnard mercenaries--the most feared group of soldiers participating in the secret war in Laos-and the details of the hidden struggle for the Ho Chi Minh Trail. With its unique and perceptive examination of the conflict, Dirty Little Secrets of the Vietnam War by James F. Dunnigan & Albert A. Nofi offers a critical addition to the library of Vietnam War history.

A humorous, anecdotal history of the author's medical practice from 1936 to 1988, it describes a simpler time, during which doctors practiced without many of the problems that face modern physicians: forms to complete for every procedure, overcrowded offices, second opinions, high insurance costs, etc. In fact, much of the book is about the unique doctor-patient relationships that existed before the age of health insurance. It was a different kind of time, when the family doctor often met his patient at the emergency room and remained the sole treating physician throughout the hospital stay.
