Sylacauga—Alabama’s “Marble City”—is blessed with an abundant natural resource that nurtures both its economy and its cultural heritage. Thirty-five miles long, at least four hundred feet deep, and more than a mile wide, the Sylacauga Marble Belt yields crystalline white marble frequently compared to the Parian marble treasured by Greek sculptors and the Italian Carrara marble often chosen by Michelangelo. Artisans have quarried Sylacauga marble for tombstones since the early 1800s, and architects prized it for years as dimension stone for buildings like the United States Supreme Court. In the early 1900s, Giuseppe Moretti and Gutzon Borglum both chose this marble for magnificent sculptures. When granite, better able to withstand industrial pollution, overtook marble as the preferred architectural stone in the 1930s, Sylacauga’s quarry owners shifted their focus to the production of ground calcium carbonate (GCC), a fundamental ingredient in manufactured products from toothpaste, foodstuffs, and disposable diapers to paints, caulks, and sealants. Many cringe at the idea of blasting and grinding marble into fine powder, but GCC is a vital factor in the local economy. Thankfully, the Magic of Marble Festival, first held in 2009, has revitalized interest in the artistic value of Sylacauga marble, inspiring sculptors from across the United States and masters from Italy to apply their skills to cream-white blocks of this beautiful stone and share their creativity with thousands of residents and visitors each year. This is the story of quarry pioneers, investors, artists, and artisans. It's also the story of their families, who fondly remember their lives along the edge of “the hole” that provided for them.

Magic Stones documents, in photographs by Czech photographer Jan Pohribny, humanity's obsession with stone. Pohribny's journey - a pilgrimage lasting more than seventeen years - took him from the far north of Scandinavia, through the British Isles and across much of mainland Europe to the islands of the Mediterranean. From the temples of Malta and the great tombs and alignments of Brittany and Britain to the labyrinths of Finland, this book explores these enigmatic stones in their landscape, as part of nature and as a reminder that, thousands of years on, they still hold a certain magic. With over 250 full-colour photographs of megalithic sites throughout Europe and an introduction by a maker and presenter of history shows, Julian Richards, Magic Stones will appeal to anyone interested in archaeology or in the more mythical aspects of these haunting reminders of our ancient past.

When Marjorie went to live with her frosty maiden aunt, she couldn't imagine the adventures she would have with dragons - good and bad - and all the strange creatures that live in a mysterious land beneath the Tarn. The spunky 9-year-old redhead forges an unlikely friendship with an insecure young boy named Rufus who lives with his crusty grandfather next door.

Hungry for adventure, the children take the plunge, quite literally, and find themselves in the magic land of Cabrynthius.

Their mission is neither easy nor safe, and is peppered with perils in the form of the evil black half-dragon who rules the shadowy side of the land.
