"Adventures on Small Islands: A Fresh Look at Greece" was intended as both and adventure story undertaken by two "old" ladies, and a story about a way of life that is vanishing, as these ten small Greek islands get caught up in the march of "progress" and thus lose the vary quality that once made them unique. The trips were undertaken over a six-year period and involved travelling "rough" - i.e. with just a rucksack; no mode of travel other than hiking, hitch-hiking, or an occasional bus; staying in village homes and trying to get to know as many loval people as possible in the weeks spent living on these islands. The islands were chosen because they are small and because neither Rhea nor Haris had previously visited them, thus no memories from the past would impinge on the "fresh look." They are not the big tourist islands that have changed Greek life in a way that many people do not like. Unfortunately, even these small islands are in the process of being "discovered" and are already changing in the past few years. So this adventure story becomes part of past history. The text of the book is taken from Haris' diaries, many pages of notes every day, and the illustrations are Rhea's. We had a lot of good times and memorable experiences on these small Greek islands, and we hope people both enjoy reading about them and get a flavour of the lives lived there. And maybe even grab a rucksack and head off to Greece to visit them!

The Battle of the Little Bighorn is the most iconic conflict in the history of the American West. It ranks as the worst military defeat of the U.S. Army during the Indian wars, yet it simultaneously marks the apex of Native American resistance on the Great Plains. A Companion to Custer and the Little Bighorn Campaign offers an authoritative and accessible overview of the scholarship that has shaped our understanding of this seminal battle. The Companion is strategically divided into five thematic sections: The first section outlines the history of the Lakota and the Northern Cheyenne people, the second details the Army's presence in the Western territories leading up to the Little Bighorn Campaign, and the third examines how General Custer became an American military figurehead. The fourth section provides detailed analyses of the battle maneuverings at Little Bighorn, paying special attention to Indian testimony from the battlefield, while the fifth and final section demonstrates how, from the moment the public learned of the U.S. Army's defeat, the Battle of the Little Bighorn has permeated America's cultural consciousness.
