From New York Times-bestselling author Leigh Bardugo comes a collection of original folktales steeped in dark magic and superstition. Perfect for new readers or existing fans, these stories offer a mesmerizing glimpse into the lavish world of Shadow and Bone, Siege and Storm, and Ruin & Rising. These are the tales told by Ravkans around the fire late at night, stories of foxes that speak, rivers that grant wishes, and witches who aren't quite what they seem. The Witch of Duva: There was a time when the woods near Duva ate girls. . . . or so the story goes. But it's just possible that the danger may be a little bit closer to home. The Too-Clever Fox: In Ravka, just because you avoid one trap, it doesn't mean you'll escape the next. Little Knife: A beautiful girl finds that what her father wants for her and what she wants for herself are two different things.

A New York Times bestselling author offers a brilliant reinvention of one of the best-known fairy tales of all time with Snow White as a gunslinger in the mythical Wild West. Forget the dark, enchanted forest. Picture instead a masterfully evoked Old West where you are more likely to find coyotes as the seven dwarves. Insert into this scene a plain-spoken, appealing narrator who relates the history of our heroine’s parents—a Nevada silver baron who forced the Crow people to give up one of their most beautiful daughters, Gun That Sings, in marriage to him. Although her mother’s life ended as hers began, so begins a remarkable tale: equal parts heartbreak and strength. This girl has been born into a world with no place for a half-native, half-white child. After being hidden for years, a very wicked stepmother finally gifts her with the name Snow White, referring to the pale skin she will never have. Filled with fascinating glimpses through the fabled looking glass and a close-up look at hard living in the gritty gun-slinging West, this is an utterly enchanting story…at once familiar and entirely new.

For Students, Scholars, Researchers, Investigators, Trainees and Scientists. "If I have seen a little further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants." Isaac Newton. This book on research is an attempt to try to answer the basic fundamental questions that come to the minds of young students, researchers, scholars, investigators, trainees or scientists. It is an outcome of collaboration between 43 researchers from 11 different countries (Pakistan, India, United States, Iran, United Kingdom, Nepal, Canada, Greece, Poland, Japan and Australia): Achakzai AM, Afghan AK, Ahmed A, Ali D, Ans M, Asad RM, Ashfaq A, Butt NM, Farooq F, Fatima M, Gilani AI, Ibrahim M, Ishtiaq O, Janjua NZ, Kakisi O, Kasi PM, Kassi M, Kassi M, Khan SF, Khawar T, Kiani J, Kulkarni HS, Majeed A, Naqvi HA, Nawaz H, Oberoi DV, Qureshi SA, Rai AS, Rathore FA, Rehman R, Sabri AA, Saeed F, Shah M, Shankar R, Sharma A, Sherjeel SA, Shoraneh F, Siddiqui S, Syed FK, Szlufic S, Yaqoob N, Zafar A, Zaidi AH Although there is a lot of literature available to answer the queries that come to the mind of a young investigator, the language is often too complex and difficult to understand and thus, aversive. Some of these teaching materials sound more like experts talking to each other. This book would act as a catalyst in providing useful reviews and guidance related to different aspects of research for students who need to be inducted and recognized as an integral part of the research community. We hope researchers benefit from this endeavor of ours. E-mail: [email protected] Website: www.PromotingResearch.com
