'I'm your half-brother and I'm here to stay. This is my home.' With these words Wilmot Abraham sought refuge with his white relations. Wilmot was the best-known Aboriginal in the Warrnambool district of Victoria, a man who maintained the old way of life long after his people were dispossessed. Local farmers spoke of him as 'the last of his tribe'. Few were aware that his father had been a white lad working as a boundary rider on the Western District frontier; and only the Aboriginal community knew that Wilmot had barely escaped with his life from the violent seizure of his mother's people's country. In Untold Stories, Jan Critchett presents a series of moving Aboriginal biographies from the Western District of Victoria, drawing both on the oral tradition of local Koori Elders and on official records. Wilmot's is one of the many untold stories that appear here for the first time. Untold Stories opens our eyes to a number of remarkable individuals who managed to make a life for themselves in the interstices of the society that had dispossessed them. Their long-running battle to maintain their culture and their connection to country, in the face of a regime that seemed bent on denying their humanity, is both humbling and inspiring.

András G. Kelemen shares his stories from a long transnational professional career. Kelemen worked in various roles in transnational organisations. He has four children and three grandchildren. When it comes to daily politics, while being a diehart patriot and simoultaneously a cosmopolitan, Kelemen says “I am a diehard democrat. However, to confuse anyone” he admits during his professional years as a top manager he had to skip some democratic processes as the pressures of time specific critical decisions dictated. Kelemen, as clearly seen from his satirical story telling in this book, says he would listen eagerly to the opinions of his colleagues if there was enough time, “but this happened rather scarcely”.

The title piece is a poignant family memoir with an account of the marriage of his parents, the lives and deaths of his aunts and the uncovering of a long-held family secret.

“Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living; it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope.”-Dr. Seuss. This book is not just a compilation of short stories contributed by diverse age groups, but a reservoir of know-hows of the authors. Writers have taken the flight of their dreams and penned down their moods and imaginations. There is an interesting story behind this compilation. Once, while discussing the importance of communication skills with the young learners, I asked them to write formal as well as informal dialogues, and also to develop dialogues to form a story, the result was incredible. They came up with very interesting stories, from there the seed of anthology was sown. With the efforts and the interest of the contributors, this Road to the Fantasy World was paved. The key to successful life lies in learning and sharing of ideas. Reading and writing can stimulate and excite imagination as well as arouse curiosity in readers. With a penchant to instill creative writing skills, a huge canvas of open theme with a palette of imaginative colors is provided to the contributors, and as a result, this beautiful anthology is ready to take the readers in the make-believe world of creative writers.

"When World War I ended in 1918, the world had changed. The face of Europe was reshaped, its boundaries altered, and Communism had taken over Russia. Many Americans were there to witness this, among them Merian C. Cooper, an Air Force pilot, Ernest B. Schoedsack, an Army cameraman, and Marguerite Harrison, a newspaper reporter. Cooper and Schoedsack had both fought in the war, and became involved in post-war events, while Harrison was recruited to work for US Intelligence, reporting on political developments in Germany and Soviet Russia. The three shared a wanderlust and a curiosity about other cultures that would take them separately, or together, all over Europe and Asia - experiencing such hardships as war and prison. In the Middle East. they came together to film the migration of a nomadic Iranian tribe, making one of the first ever documentaries, "Grass: A Nation's Battle for Life." This volume looks at the lives of all three of these unique individuals, and at the many adventures that shaped them and brought them to their pioneering moment in cinematic history, presenting this fascinating story in its entirety for the first time."--BOOK JACKET.
