Far more than a dry hagiographical account of the lives of saints, this entertaining and authoritative dictionary breathes life into its subjects and is as browsable as it is informative. First published in 1978, the Oxford Dictionary of Saints offers more than 1,700 fascinating and informative entries covering the lives, cults, and artistic associations of saints from around the world, from the famous to the obscure, the rich to the poor, and the academic to the uneducated. From all walks of life and from all periods of history and from around the world, the wide varieties of personalities and achievements of the canonized are reflected. An updated introduction explains the steps towards becoming a saint, the processes of beatification and canonization. This revised fifth edition includes appendices containing five maps of pilgrimage sites, a list of saints' patronages and iconographical emblems, and a calendar of principal feasts, as well as a new appendix on pilgrimages.

San Gabriel is often referred to as the "birthplace of the Los Angeles region." The area's first inhabitants were native peoples often called Gabriele´┐Żo because of their association with the San Gabriel Mission, which was founded in 1771; the mission became the fourth and most productive of the 21 California missions built along El Camino Real. Saloons and gambling halls arrived during the Wild West era, and shoot-outs became commonplace. Joshua Bean owned one such saloon until his 1852 murder. His brother, the future judge Roy Bean, inherited and operated his Headquarters Saloon until Roy was run out of town by local authorities. The vintage images in this book chronicle San Gabriel through the 20th century, covering city growth and oddities, including early resident William Money, the region's first documented cult leader and founder of the Moneyan Institute, and the infamous "Man From Mars" bandit, who terrorized the community with grocery store robberies.

Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831-91), writer, traveller and spiritualist, is well known for her role in nineteenth-century theosophy. Born in the Ukraine, Blavatsky travelled extensively and claimed to have spent seven years studying esoteric mysteries in Tibet. From 1863 she began working as a medium and later counted W. B. Yeats among her followers. In 1875 she founded the Theosophical Society with Henry Steel Olcott. Influenced by Eastern philosophy and the Templars, Freemasons and Rosicrucians, the Society aimed to unravel the occult mysteries of nature. First published in 1877, this book outlines theosophy's precepts. The book is a mishmash of Hermetic philosophy, Christian history and Asian theology, and was allegedly dictated astrally from authorities including Plato, Solomon and Roger Bacon. Volume 2 questions the 'infallibility of religion'. Blavatsky attacks the Church's authority on spirituality and outlines its historic crimes. The book also explores the influence of Eastern philosophy on Christianity.

Madison's Angels takes place in North Carolina, New Mexico, and Texas. Though the first chapter takes place twenty-seven years ago, the remainder of the story occurs during the current time period. Madison Cavanaugh is the only child of a single mother, Rosemary. When Madison was just an infant, Rosemary traveled from New Mexico to North Carolina with Ray Davis, who was a long-distance truck driver. With no other family, Rosemary is overwhelmed by the generosity and warmth bestowed on them by the Davis family. She and Madison soon become a part of their family. Ray's younger sister, Debbie, is also a single mother raising a daughter named Megan. Rosemary and Debbie become close friends and their two little girls spend their childhood together. Now an ER nurse, Madison recognizes the blood-covered pendant on her critically injured patient as belonging to her mother. When Rosemary dies during surgery and the surgeon explains to Madison that the woman who raised her had never delivered a child, her life is shaken to the core. Madison is determined to find her true identity. Her first step is to travel from North Carolina to New Mexico to locate a priest whose name her mother struggled to say before she died. But the more Madison learns, the deeper and more dangerous her investigation becomes. Elaine LaForge lives in the Finger Lakes region of New York. She is the mother of four and the grandmother of five. Now retired, she has the time to write the novels she has always envisioned in her mind.
