The fire was dead, and the Oulhamrs lacked the skill to rekindle it.  Will the Oulhamrs survive as they search for a new fire source?  The Quest For Fire, by J.-H. Rosny aîné, is a novel set during the paleolithic era.  Our book trailer elaborates.  Begin the adventure by placing an interlibrary loan (ILL) request for this book.  ILL forms are available at the library circulation desk.  (By the way, Rosny was a pseudonym for Joseph Henri Honoré Boex, who also wrote with his brother, Séraphin Justin François Boex, using the Rosny pseudonym.  Once they began writing separately, Joseph added aîné—“elder”—to the pseudonym to distinguish his work from that of his younger brother’s.)

In 1973, the movie The Exorcist terrified audiences with its graphic portrayal of demonic possession.  At the turn of the 20th century, a psychiatrist investigated cases of apparent spirit possession and demonstrated an effective treatment to cure troubled patients.  Thirty Years Among the Dead, by Carl A. Wickland, M.D., presents case histories in this intriguing area of paranormal study.  Our book trailer elaborates.  Although the book is no longer included in our Evergreen Indiana online catalog, it may be obtained via interlibrary loan (ILL).  Ask for an ILL form at the library circulation desk.
