Readers of medieval Japanese literature have long been captivated by its romance and philosophy. In this volume, two acclaimed thirteenth-century classics, The Ten Foot Square Hut and Tales of the Heike, are presented in translation. The Ten Foot Square Hut (the Hojoki) takes its title from a four and half mat sized Tearoom, the size of the hut in which the hero of the story, Chomei, lives. It offers the memorable reflections of this sensitive aristocrat who has retired from a world filled with violent contrasts and cataclysms to find refuge in nature and Buddhist philosophy. Though this narrative was written 700 years ago, its message continues to have an astonishing timeliness. Tales of the Heike (selections from the Heike Monogatari) deals with the same period but from a different point of view, supplying the background of Chomei's meditations. It is a collection of episodic stories, written in poetical prose, related to the rise and fall of the Taira clan in twelfth-century Kyoto, one of the great turning points in Japanese history. The translations, by the late Professor A. L. Sandler, are complemented by an informed Introduction on the background to these masterpieces of Japanese literature.

What was coming of age like for adolescents who lived during the time before the birth of the United States? Besides the seasons and global warming, how do we account for summer seasons' wild storms? And just where did lightning bugs come from? While today's youth are born into a world where scientists are able to explain many phenomena, really revealing the origin of things as simple as the weather and those magical little insects known as fireflies requires a master storyteller. "The Legend of the Earth Stars" is a spell-binding account of adventure and self-sacrificing love that will engage both youth and adults in an alternate explanation of some of our planet's everyday occurrences. Exposing the dangers of human greed, this legend offers a Rudyard Kipling-like vision of our natural world, with characters that readers will admire and despise, and a moral that will guide today's youth towards a deeper appreciation for their elders and their own responsibilities as new adult members of our society. This illustrated chapter book appeals to the "Just So" stories with which many adults are familiar, but in a package that will woo today's excitement-driven youth. "The Legend of the Earth Stars" divulges not only the importance of courage in the face of egomaniacal men and women, but of honoring the everyday natural world and its mysteries.
