Dr. Nathaniel B. Smythe, doctor of psychology and engineering. Philanthropist and investor. Grandson of one of the town's founders, and confirmed bachelor. General Franklin F. Fremont, retired general in the army. Explorer and big game hunter. The two men, stalwart friends in a small industrial town on the banks of the Susquehanna River where nothing changes and excitement is discouraged. On the surface, anyway. But there is something rippling beneath the sleepy little town's gentle faÃ§ade. It's been there for as long as anyone can remember. No one talks about it, not even in subdued whispers, but it touches the lives of every residentincluding the two friends. And when Dr. Smythe reveals one of his secret inventions to a bored General Fremont, Hell breaks loose in the form of a demon from another dimension. The two are forced to hunt the creature before it can wreak havoc on the town they both love. It won't be as easy as they think. The doorway they open is but the beginning, and even more horrors wait for them and the rest of the town. This is life on the river. This is life for residents who will do anything to achieve their goals. If the town accepts you, it will give you anything you can dream. Even if the dream is a nightmare. Welcome to Milltown.
This is the first detailed study of the operation of the Countess of Huntingdon's Connexion, an important group in early Methodism. Alan Harding explores how the Connexion developed locally; the identity of its preachers and their training; the religious and social origins of those who joined its congregations; and the relationship between central direction and local initiative. The book examines the Connexion's attitudes to the Church of England and also to Dissent, to whose revival in the later eighteenth century it made a significant contribution. It considers the Connexion's relationship with other sections of the Revival, and reflects on the doctrinal issues that divided it from Weleyan Methodism.
"Oh, a-hunting we will go, "
"A-hunting we will go;"
"We'll catch a fox and put him in a box, "
"And then we'll let him go "So begins this rollicking folk song that has delighted generations of children and inspired them to make up their own verses. John Langstaff has selected some of the most popular stanzas, both old and new, that are sure to bring out smiles and giggles. Nancy Winslow Parker's pictures join in the fun as a band of intrepid children hunt for the fox, a skunk, and even a brontosaurus with wildly silly results.
Piano and guitar accompaniment are provided so grown-ups can sing along, too. The playful mood of the words, music, and pictures is infectious -- you may even decide to add new verses of your own
