Seventeen-year-old Katie Price has a rare disease that makes exposure to even the smallest amount of sunlight deadly. Confined to her house during the day, her company is limited to her widowed father and her best (okay, only) friend.

Charlie Reed is a former all-star athlete at a crossroads in his life - and the boy Katie has secretly admired from afar for years. When he happens upon her playing guitar one night, fate intervenes and the two embark on a star-crossed romance.

Annotation "The Klondike Gold Rush made the Yukon famous, but the rest of its long and diverse history attracts little attention. Placing the best-known historical episodes within the broader sweep of the past, the bestselling Land of the Midnight Sun is the standard source for understanding the Yukon's history. It has been completely revised and brought up to the present in this new edition." "Emphasizing the role of First Nations people and the lengthy struggle of Yukoners to find their place within Confederation, Ken Coates and William Morrison also explore the impressive Elka-Keno Hill silver mines, the impact of residential schools on Aboriginal children, the devastation caused by the sinking of the Princess Sophia, the Yukon's remarkable contributions to the Canadian World War I effort, and the sweeping transformations associated with the American "occupation" during World War II."--BOOK JACKET.

This book was born from an idyllic love of youth. An honest love filled with firsts and dripping in honeyed romantic cliché; but if it was born in innocence – The sublimity was forged in the stark reality of loss, the hollow sound of a lonely apartment and the fragments of shattered glass. These are my words, may each page gently breathe life into the wistful dreams of anyone who has ever had the courage to rise up and open their heart once again.

Following the disastrous Java Sea campaign, the Allies went on the offensive in the Pacific in a desperate attempt to halt the Japanese forces that were rampaging across the region. With the conquest of Australia a very real possibility, the stakes were high. Their target: the Japanese-held Soloman Islands, in particular the southern island of Guadalcanal. Hamstrung by arcane pre-war thinking and a bureaucratic mind-set, the US Navy had to adapt on the fly in order to compete with the mighty Imperial Japanese Navy, whose ingenuity and creativity thus far had fostered the creation of its Pacific empire. Starting with the amphibious assault on Savo Island, the campaign turned into an attritional struggle where the evenly matched foes sought to grind out a victory. Following on from his hugely successful book Rising Sun, Falling Skies, Jeffrey R. Cox tells the gripping story of the first Allied offensive of the Pacific War, as they sought to prevent Japan from cutting off Australia and regaining dominance in the Pacific.

Children of the Midnight Sun was chosen as one of Parenting Magazine's 1998 Books of the Year and School Library Journal's Best Books of 1998. For Native children, growing up in Alaska today means dwelling in a place where traditional practices sometimes mix oddly with modern conveniences. Children of the Midnight Sun explores the lives of eight Alaskan Native children, each representing a unique and ancient culture. This extraordinary book also looks at the critical role elders play in teaching the young Native traditions. Photographs and text present the experiences and way of life of Tlingit, Athabascan, Yup'ik, and other Native American children in the villages, cities, and Bush areas of Alaska.
He's the guy with his tongue stuck to a metal pole. A tenderfoot. A greenhorn." Land of the Radioactive Midnight Sun is the story of Lt. Sean Michael Flynn as he tries to survive his first year in Alaska.
Author: Sean Michael Flynn
"In New York City, a Cheechako (chee CHA-ko) would be the kid who just fell off the turnip truck. No street smarts. A pink windbreaker. A subway map sticking from his back pocket...In Alaska, a Cheechako is even easier to spot. He's the guy with his tongue stuck to a metal pole. A tenderfoot. A greenhorn." Land of the Radioactive Midnight Sun is the story of Lt. Sean Michael Flynn as he tries to survive his first year in Alaska. With romantic notions of Jack London and Bush piloting, Lt. Flynn requests a transfer to Eielson Air Force Base outside of Fairbanks, Alaska. He is a bit unnerved at how easy the transfer goes through. From a rugby game on a frozen river to living across from Santa's Village to random moose attacks to soaring over the Bush in an F-16, Land of the Radioactive Midnight Sun is a hilarious trial-by-many-errors account of what it takes to become a true Alaskan.

Author: Harald Gaski
Publisher: University of Washington Press
Category: Literary Criticism
This is the first extensive anthology of contemporary Sami literature in English. The Sami are the indigenous people inhabiting Northern Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia's Kola Peninsula. Twenty-one authors from all four countries are represented with poetry, short stories and excerpts from novels. Many of the authors are award-winners, and some have been included in Nordic and international collections. The readers will be introduced to a variety of themes and experiences, from wolves attacking a reindeer herd to river boat rafting and the making of a shaman drum, from the most tender love poems in Arctic surroundings to the bitter realities in the everyday life of a suppressed minority. The text reflects Sami resilience and selfhood, and expresses the Sami's own perspective on their struggle to preserve traditional values in modern society -- from back cover.
