Описание: A vacation house has a terrifying past--one that only the children know about
Jason, his little sister, Sally, and his parents plan to spend the summer in the perfect seaside vacation home. But as soon as Jason steps onto the porch, icy air grips him, and he feels the stare of an invisible being. Although he can't explain it, he knows that in this house, children are not welcome.
Jason soon meets Steve, a friendly kid who teases him about the so-called haunted house and the witch who used to live there. Jason tries to ignore him, but he's pretty sure there's truth to the spooky tale. Especially when he meets the pale figure of a child in the house . . .
The Haunting is the first book of the chilling House on Cherry Street trilogy from prolific wife-and-husband coauthors Lynn Harnett and Rodman Philbrick, the Newbery Honor Award-winning author of Freak the Mighty.

Описание: A haunted house continues its quest for vengeance on two young children
After surviving the wrath of the house that wants them dead, Jason and his four-year-old sister, Sally, face a new challenge--a week without their mom and dad. When their parents are called away to deal with a work crisis, they are left with Katie, a seventeen-year-old babysitter.
Katie doesn't believe in spirits, but that doesn't matter to Bobby, the ghost of the child who was murdered here. Bobby has become closer than ever to Sally--in fact, he now possesses her. And his hatred of babysitters and desire for vengeance will leave Jason, Sally, and Katie in even more danger than before.
The Horror is the second book of the chilling House on Cherry Street trilogy from prolific wife-and-husband coauthors Lynn Harnett and Rodman Philbrick, the Newbery Honor Award-winning author of Freak the Mighty.

Описание: Excerpt from Ye Parish of Cam̃erwell: A Brief Account of the Parish of Camberwell, Its History and Antiquities It is not in any way an ambitious book, but simply a collection of facts concerning a parish with which I am oficially associated, and where my family have long been resident. My connection with the local press a few years since gave me perhaps the first idea of getting materials together for a local history, and my subsequent official position brought to my hand statistics showing the wonderful changes which had recently come over the Parish of Camberwell. I was further encouraged to proceed from the fact that, beyond the slight sketch of Camberwell given by Lysons, in his Environs of London, and by Manning and Bray, and by Brayley, in their County Histories, there had only been one attempt to chronicle local events, and bring Old Camber well out of the obscurity to which time and negligence had consigned it. Of Mr. Douglas Allport's able Collections concerniu g Camberwell, published in 1841, I desire to speak in terms of the highest praise. As a local history it will ever be regarded as a book of the greatest authority. It is, however, now rarely met with, and on application to the representatives of Mr. Allport's family, I at once received permission to copy such of the illustrations in Mr. Douglas Allport's book as I might like; to select - a permission which has been made use of in a few instances. I have also made slight use of materials found in the County Histories, and in minor publications but by far the greater portion of the following compilation is from original documents. I have received during the past three years - that is, from the time it became known that I was engaged upon the work - the most liberal, and indeed unlocked-for, assistance.

Описание: Two children face the terrors of a house that wants them dead
Can Jason and Sally survive the evil spirits in the house on Cherry Street until their parents return? Jason looks for clues to the house's mysterious history--especially the "accidental" fall that killed Bobby, the ghost who still fears his terrifying nanny and whose body was never found. Maybe if Jason and his sister can right the wrongs of the past, the house will no longer be haunted. But that means they'll have to go back inside . . .
The Final Nightmare is the concluding book of the chilling House on Cherry Street trilogy from prolific wife-and-husband coauthors Lynn Harnett and Rodman Philbrick, the Newbery Honor Award-winning author of Freak the Mighty.
Описание: Historical Representation and the Postcolonial Imaginary: Constructing Travellers and Aborigines endeavours to provide an overview of the role which oral history plays in the documentation, representation and subsequent empowerment of neglected and long-marginalised social groups, in this case: the cultural minorities that are the Irish Travellers and the Australian Aborigines. Oral history has proved paramount in enabling such groups to document their pasts, pasts which until recently had been occluded and often-ignored. This work explores the genre that is oral history through the prism that is the construction of the ‘Other’ in society and with particular reference to two minorities whose histories share a range of similar characteristics. In examining this process, it is possible to trace the transformation of folklore and storytelling into documented historical narrative.

"We walk on fire or air, so Daddy liked to say. Basement floors too hot to touch. Steaming green lawns in the dead of winter. Sinkholes, quick and sudden, plunging open at your feet." "" ""The underground mine fires ravaging Pennsylvania coal country have forced eleven-year-old Brigid Howley and her family to seek refuge with her estranged grandparents, the formidable Gram and the black lung stricken Gramp. Tragedy is no stranger to the Howleys, a proud Irish-American clan who takes strange pleasure in the "curse" laid upon them generations earlier by a priest who ran afoul of the Molly Maguires. The weight of this legacy rests heavily on a new generation, when Brigid, already struggling to keep her family together, makes a grisly discovery in a long-abandoned bootleg mine shaft. In the aftermath, decades-old secrets threaten to prove just as dangerous to the Howleys as the burning, hollow ground beneath their feet.
Inspired by real-life events in Centralia and Carbondale, where devastating coal mine fires irrevocably changed the lives of residents, "The Hollow Ground" is an extraordinary debut with an atmospheric, voice-driven narrative and an indelible sense of place. Lovers of literary fiction will find in Harnett's young, determined protagonist a character as heartbreakingly captivating as any in contemporary literature.
