In the Magic Valley region of Idaho, Professor Edwin Greyhawk visits a local middle school to speak to the students about the Native American history and culture of the area. He shows the schoolchildren an ancient Native American artifact called The Willing Stone. When one of the students touches the Stone, he falls into a trance and has a disturbing vision of the world beyond the Blue Cloud. Banished from this world centuries ago by local tribal medicine men, the evil spirit, White Eyes, lies in wait behind the Blue Cloud curtain that now separates his prison from our world of space and time. He plots to lure all with the 'Gift of the Stone' to his domain, when he will then be free to break his bonds. Now the Blue Cloud is about to be reopened and White Eyes plans to return to this world and seek his revenge. Only one boy is capable of foiling White Eyes' plot to escape and save all those with the Gift of the Stone trapped behind the Blue Cloud with him. The Legend of Blue Cloud is a mythical tale of enchantment, terror, danger, betrayal, and ultimate redemption. It is a story full of magic and mayhem played out behind the Blue Cloud hiding in the Snake River Plains of southern Idaho.

Research on clouds and precipitation has undergone considerable development in the Soviet Union during the last forty years. In the pre-war years, a great deal of data was collected from the network of weather stations on clouds and precipitation; synoptic methods of forecasting these phenomena were developed; a substantial amount of laboratory research was carried out on thunderstorm electricity and the mechanism of precipitation formation; and research was begun on clouds in the vicinity of mountains. Immediately after the war, research was renewed in the Soviet Union on the active modification of clouds and fog. Physical methods have been developed for forecasting cloudiness and precipitation, based on the solution to dynamic atmosphere equations and energy relationships. In recent years, more and more effort has been put into cloud research and into the development of methods of active modification.

In this ancient Greek comedy, Strepsiades has a problem: his good-for-nothing son Pheidippides is gambling away his fortune on horses. Strepsiades wants to send his son to the Thinkery, an expensive school of sophisticated rhetoric, so that Pheidippides can talk his way out of Strepsiades' debts. At the Thinkery Pheidippides meets Socrates, a fast-talking sleaze ball "philosopher" who teaches his students how to con their way out of trouble. There is a famous story from antiquity that Socrates cheerfully rose from his seat in the theatre during a performance of The Clouds when foreigners in the audience began to whisper, "Who is Socrates?" Plato would later complain bitterly that this play's mocking portrayal of Socrates contributed to his downfall.

In Clouds of Glory: The Life and Legend of Robert E. Lee, Michael Korda, the New York Times bestselling biographer of Dwight D. Eisenhower, Ulysses S. Grant, and T. E. Lawrence, has written the first major biography of Lee in nearly twenty years, bringing to life one of America's greatest, most iconic heroes. Korda paints a vivid and admiring portrait of Lee as a general and a devoted family man who, though he disliked slavery and was not in favor of secession, turned down command of the Union army in 1861 because he could not "draw his sword" against his own children, his neighbors, and his beloved Virginia. He was surely America's preeminent military leader, as calm, dignified, and commanding a presence in defeat as he was in victory. Lee's reputation has only grown in the 150 years since the Civil War, and Korda covers in groundbreaking detail all of Lee's battles and traces the making of a great man's undeniable reputation on both sides of the Mason-Dixon Line, positioning him finally as the symbolic martyr-hero of the Southern Cause. Clouds of Glory features dozens of stunning illustrations, some never before seen, including eight pages of color, sixteen pages of black-and-white, and nearly fifty battle maps.
