Enchanted Worlds showcases Amy Zerner's lush, detailed drawings of peaceful kingdoms, spiritual gardens, forests, sacred sanctuaries, and ocean grottoes, inhabited by elves, fairies, animals, birds, mermaids, butterflies, and dragons.

reading practices has tended to focus on middle-class white people living in northeastern cities before 1876. Reading on the Middle Border shifts the focus to the Midwest and broadens the base of economic classes studied.Christine Pawley investigates the use of print by "ordinary" Americans in the small, rural community of Osage, Iowa -- the town that shaped Hamlin Garland -- analyzing primary source material on education, religious life, a reading club, and business affairs. A major section of her study focuses on the public library, an institution that provides a valuable window into the reading practices of men and women of various ages, classes, ethnicities, and religions. An extensive database of library circulation and accessions information, combined with federal and state census data, sheds light on the elusive issue of "Who read what?"Pawley explores the ways print confirmed or challenged people's economic, social, and religious world, and asks what values print expressed or confronted. She also raises questions relating to modes and contexts of reading, distinguishing between groups and individuals. The picture of print in Osage is complex and defies reduction, but by placing print in a community context and viewing printed materials as an expression of activities, not mere artifacts, Pawley enhances our understanding of the role of reading in American culture.
