The legends of the Seven Sisters of the Pleiades that poets, priests, prophets, shamans, storytellers, artists, singers, and historians have told throughout time are retold in this compilation of the stories that have found their inspiration in nine beautiful stars clustered together in the night sky. While particular attention in this cross-cultural study is paid to the influence of the Pleiades cluster on the living traditions of indigenous people in North America, Australia, Japan, and the Pacific, much ancient mythology passed down through written and visual sources from ancient Egypt, India, Greece, and South America is also explored. Appearances of the myths in the modern world are also mentioned, including American presidential elections, Halloween, Atlantis, the Titanic, and Subaru automobiles. Serious astronomical research complements the variety of mythological explanations for the stars' existence by providing the modern world's scientific understanding of them.

This groundbreaking survey, written in 1860, is a radically open-minded look at the use of drugs across the world and throughout the ages. Early users of tobacco in Russia would have their noses cut off and repeat offenders their heads. Pope Innocent XII excommunicated any who used it in St. Peters. Marijuana users in 14th century Egypt would have their teeth extracted for the crime. Yet use of these and other forbidden substances continued to grow. If only as a record of the perennial failure of harsh punishments to deter drug use Victorian naturalist Mordecai Cooke's work The Seven Sisters of Sleep would remain significant. But Cooke's natural humor and keen insights have ensured this work's reputation as possibly the best early book from what has grown into an enormous body of literature on mind- and mood-altering substances. Written at a time, similar to our own, when drug use was being reconsidered, The Seven Sisters of Sleep is a thought-provoking and open-minded look at the use of drugs across the world and throughout the ages. Quite popular in its day and a major influence on Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, this is an important book for anyone interested in an unbiased account of humanity's long involvement with psychoactive, hallucinogenic, and stimulant plants.

Meet Benni Harper…a spirited ex-cowgirl, quilter, and folk-art expert who’s staking out her own corner of the contemporary American West. She’s got an eye for murderous designs—and a talent for piecing together the most complex and cold-blooded crimes. When Benni’s stepson announces his plans to marry into the wealthy, influential Brown family, she and her husband are invited to the Browns’ sprawling ranch, Seven Sisters, to celebrate the engagement. But the party takes a tragic turn when a member of the esteemed family is murdered. While trying to unravel the feuding clan’s tangled past, Benni uncovers a shocking pattern of tragedy—and stitches a hodgepodge of clues into a very disturbing design. . . Seven Sisters, a challenging pattern that features a single six-pointed star surrounded by six identical stars, was most likely inspired by an observation of nature—the Seven Sisters is a loose grouping of stars in the constellation Taurus. Although the stars in the cluster appear to be close together, they are, in fact, quite far apart.

It is July 19, 1863 when the Amazon arrives from London at the New York docks with eight hundred Mormons on board. Among the arriving Saints are seven young, unmarried, unrelated “sisters in the gospel,” who have been placed together as a family during their forty-four-day voyage. The Seven Sisters, as they have come to be called, have become close enough to vow to stay together all the way to their new home in Utah. The Sisters must now travel overland by railroads and waterways to the Mormon outfitting camp in Nebraska Territory, where they plan to join the “down and back” wagons and trek to the Salt Lake Valley. As they make this journey, the Sisters experience many difficulties—from the rigors of changing trains and riverboats to sleeping outside in unpredictable weather to wondering when or where they will find their next sustenance. While facing unexpected accidents, sickness, and loss, the Sisters trek the last thousand miles on foot in unforgiving environments with the possibility of cattle and buffalo stampedes, hostile Indians, and treacherous river crossings. In this continuing historical tale, the Seven Sisters must face their biggest fears and rely on their faith, courage, and optimism to survive this challenging journey to their “Zion” home.

Laura was a child bride. Her father, Herbert was a Pentecost Oneness Evangelist, a Charlatan that never wanted girls. In his twisted mind all females born are whores. Laura worshiped her dad, but he was the first man to abuse and beat her. He even forced Laura's mom to beat her and her eleven siblings. Five boys and six girls, seven girls counting Laura. Laura was the oldest of the seven girls then Evelyn, Darlene, Carolyn, Harley, Valerie, & Carrieann. Life was violent in their immediate family and as they were growing up the girls developed violent, deadly personalities. Two older brothers, Jr. & Johnny raped the girls daily. Many times Laura watched the boys beating and raping her sisters and many times the boys beat and raped Laura. Jr., Johnny and their own dad Herbert were always robbing and pulling guns on each other. Herbert put most of the kids in prisons, halfway houses, married them off, and some of them ran away. He sent Laura's six sisters Evelyn, Darlene, Carolyn, Harley, Valerie, and Carrieann somewhere, but no one knows where. When she was ten Herbert, being an Evangelist, held a double barrel shot gun on a man and Laura. He married her off to an abusive man, Bobby. Herbert made them live together in the funeral parlor where Bobby and his best friend Rick lived. Laura was supposed to marry Rick and was engaged to him for a awhile, but Laura loved Bobby. Bobby and Rick were beating and raping Laura, forcing her to suck their dicks in the funeral parlor. He let his friends beat on her, pour everything in the refrigerator on top of her, painted her body, and made her walk the beaches naked. He instigated his friends to throw watermelon rinds at her to bruise her body and they all tried to drown her in the ocean. Bobby was always fucking his cousin, he didn't want Laura. She asked him for one piece of sausage and he said; "Damn, I have to feed you too?" Bobby and his friends took Laura down town, tied her to a light post and left her. An officer took her back to Bobby, but she wouldn't even go inside the funeral parlor. She sat on the porch looking in the windows watching them all having sex, drinking and doing drugs. She spent many years hitch-hiking on highways to get away from them. She was getting beat and raped with guns and knives, forced to let them stick their dicks in her coochie and suck their dicks while hitch-hiking on the highways. Most of these men never lived to remember what they did or go home to their families or get on with their lives and get a wife and family or pretend in court they didn't do anything and usually get away with it. Unfortunately for them, Laura had a nasty habit of cutting off cocks and slicing throats.
