  • James Willard Schultz (1859Ð1947) was an author, explorer, and historian known for his historical writings of the Blackfoot Indians in the late 1800s, when he lived among them as a fur trader. His work is important because it contains first-hand accounts from Native Americans which he recorded and wove exciting biographical narratives around. The James Willard Schultz Collection includes the four books Schultz is best known for - Bird Woman (Sacajawea) the Guide of Lewis and Clark: Her Own Story Now First Given to the World, Lone Bull's Mistake: A Lodge Pole Chief Story, Rising Wolf, the White Blackfoot: Hugh Monroe's Story of His First Year on the Plains and Apauk, Caller of Buffalo.

But when the son of the German Chancellor takes up residence in ColetteÕs home, the lines of truth fade faster than she anticipated, and the girl who is everything becomes completely overwritten in her own story.

  • "a meticulously researched account of an unexpected and utterly fascinating woman."Emeritus Professor Lucy Frost, The University of Tasmania. "The Journal of Madame Callegari ... is a fascinating story from start to finish: not only the very notion that the true identity of Madame Callegari has remained hidden until now, but also the incredible story of Madame Callegari's life and travels. ... the author's choice to write the journal in the first person adds greatly to the pace and personal nature of the story and draws the reader in from the very beginning. ... Astute readers ... will no doubt be delighted to now be able to read the full story of Madame Callegari and her incredible life. This complete account is meticulously researched and a valuable and important contribution to the literature in the area of French-Australian Studies, given the time that Madame Callegari spent here and in the surrounding region. Readers everywhere can be very grateful that Douglas Wilkie came across Madame Callegari's true identity, that he has set the record straight, and that he has shared her fascinating story with us."Dr Kerry Mullan, Senior Lecturer, Coordinator French Studies, RMIT University. "He is to be congratulated on his achievement." Elaine Lewis, Author Left Bank Waltz, (Vintage 2006); Co-editor The French Australian Review.

  • "Madame de Mauves" is a novella by Henry James, originally published in in 1874. The story centers on the troubled marriage of a scrupulous American wife and a far from scrupulous French husband, and is told mostly from the point of view of a male friend of the wife. The tale reflects the intense interest James took in the "international theme," especially early in his career. One of the longest fictions he had yet attempted, the smoothly narrated story shows that James was rapidly maturing in style and technique.

  • A collection of fairy tales bearing the signature Mademoiselle de *** was originally printed in Paris in two volumes in July 1697, and reissued in 1707, this time being attributed to Charlotte-Rose Caumont de La Force (1650-1724). Of all the pioneering writers of contes de fées, Mademoiselle de La Force is perhaps the one who took the greatest imaginative license from the freedom to make arbitrary inventions and narrative moves. Her tales tell a story that is very different from the historical fantasies built on Perrault’s moralistic tales for children. The morals attached to Mademoiselle de La Force’s tales are certainly not aimed at children. In fact, what distinguishes her tales from those of her most famous contemporaries is their evident moral unease. By far the most famous of her tales is “Persinette” which was plagiarized by Friedrich Schultz, who retitled it “Rapunzel” (1790), and it was subsequently collected under that title by the Brothers Grimm. That version became the basis for the Disney film Tangled (2010).All eight stories collected here give evidence of some painful existential wounds that led the author to say of herself, “I have always been deceived, and only found in my entire life one good friend; I have had perfidious and false friends in quantity….”
