Willows by the water glittered, rustling in the blowing breeze. Mirrored in the limpid distance, silver gilt between the trees, bands of amber streaked the surface, gently rent the shroud of night, freed the sovereignty of darkness, put the dying clouds to flight. For Willoughby, it was the silent time. Profiled at the misty margin, contemplating whence she came, bent a water nymph in study, rapt and tranquil, lovely, lonely; a film veiled her slender limbs, limned softly by the suns first flame. Head lifted, she began to straighten, circling arms began to rise, fingers languidly caressed the tresses. Washed with light, she closed her eyes. A vision only, but not wholly, she is very like anothers form: gorgeous daughter of the morning, born into the warmth of dawn. It always seemed she might be waiting, though never as she seemed so now . . . Fastening her glowing hair, she drifted to the liquid lip. There, letting fall the gossamer, she slipped to mingle with the ripples. Grey eyes turned to smile a greeting, and white hand lingered in a parting wave . . . And she was gone. In the rushes at the lakeside, the dreamer, dreaming, gave a sigh. Could he make the scene substantial? Should hedare heeven try?

The classic and original text that first explored the telepathic methods of communication of wild animals • Based on years of detailed field observations, first published in 1919 • Written by the famous American naturalist who was the first to study telepathy in the wild • Forewords by biologists Rupert Sheldrake, who has spent 15 years researching the unexplained powers of animals, and Marc Bekoff, the editor of the three-volume Encyclopedia of Animal Behavior Many sources have commented on the silent communication abilities of pets, but never before and not since the first publication of this book in 1919 has the subject of animal telepathy in the wild been so fully researched. How Animals Talk explores the phenomenon of vocal, silent, and even motionless communication among animals. From crow talk to instant herd communication, author William J. Long theorizes that animals are much more intelligent, emotional, and moral than we have traditionally thought and that their ability to sense the presence of other living beings is an innate ability shared by humans as well. Based on many years of field observations, this classic text contains numerous examples of animal behavior that defy conventional explanation. Long believed in the importance and validity of anecdotal evidence. He recognized the dangers of conventional research in reducing animals to mere numbers and how the cold third-person prose of scientific study can objectify animals, distancing "us" from "them." His findings on the impact of our presence on animal life--and the cost that we pay in separating ourselves from animals, who help define our place in the natural world--may be more relevant today than ever before.
A new adversary has been revealed. His actions are the ultimate betrayal. He must be destroyed, whatever the cost. "It has been almost a month since Kwan and Reed rescued me from certain death at the hands of the self-proclaimed President of NUSA, the man who took the life of my unborn child and left me to die. What my tormentors did to me threatens to set me on a new path, one steeped in hatred and vengeance. I now walk a fine line between right and wrong, between good and evil, between love and hate. While the Legion struggles without my leadership, NUSA is growing more powerful than ever, and worse, they know our secrets. But NUSA has underestimated my friends, my family, my Legion. We will rise again, stronger than before. We will prepare for war, for the final battle that will decide our future. In the presence of hope we are capable of the most courageous acts. My name is Rebecca Davis. I am the leader of The Legion and I am prepared to fight to the death to secure freedom for my people." Melissa Delport's The Legend is the sequel to The Legion and the final volume in The Legacy Trilogy. It is a tense and gripping conclusion and, as in all wars, sacrifice is inevitable.
