Excerpt from Indian TalesOne evening, Just after we were fairly settled in our new cabin, and while we were seated at supper, ther...e appeared in the open doorway one of the oddest-looking creatures imaginable. It was a little old man, with a reddish-gray beard and long, thin hair 'of the same color; and though I was then but a boy ten years old, I can at this moment shut my eyes and recall the image distinctly. The dumpy figure standing for a moment, one foot upon the door-sill, one dirty hand resting on the casing, the greasy, patched,-old wammus, deer skin pants and big beaver cap are still vivid in my recollection.Come in, said my father, as the queer old fellow stood hesitating with a grin upon his face. -come in and have some supper.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

The Chronicles of Narnia series has entertained millions of readers, both children and adults, since the appearance of the first b...ook in 1950. Here, scholars turn the lens of philosophy on these timeless tales. Engagingly written for a lay audience, these essays consider a wealth of topics centered on the ethical, spiritual, mythic, and moral resonances in the adventures of Aslan, the Pevensie children, and the rest of the colorful cast. Do the spectacular events in Narnia give readers a simplistic view of human choice and decision making? Does Aslan offer a solution to the problem of evil?

With these and a wide range of other questions, this provocative book takes a fresh view of the world of Narnia and expands readers’ experience of it. read more
