              With humour and lyric beauty, E.B. White tells a timeless tale of love, courage, and freedom that will capture the imagination of every listener. Louis is a Trumpeter Swan, but he has no voice. Though he is frightened when his father explains to him that he is different from the ...other cygnets, Louis is resourceful and determined. Leaving his wild and beautiful home, he finds a young human friend, Sam Beaver, who helps him learn to read and write. When he returns to his lake, Louis discovers his education isn't enough: the beautiful swan he loves, Serena, can't read his declarations of love - and he can't trumpet them. Louis's resolution to win the swan of his desire launches him on an adventure that will take him far from home and lead where fate - and love - have a few surprises in store.

              A New York Times Book Review New & Noteworthy Title For democracy's weary champions, White's time-tested prose is a shot of adrenaline (Madeleine Albright). I am a member of a party of one, and I live in an age of fear. These words were written by E. B. White in 1947. Decades bef...ore our current political turmoil, White crafted eloquent yet practical political statements that continue to resonate. There's only one kind of press that's any good-- he proclaimed, a press free from any taint of the government. He condemned the trend of defamation, arguing that in doubtful, doubting days, national morality tends to slip and slide toward a condition in which the test of a man's honor is his zeal for discovering dishonor in others. And on the spread of fascism he lamented, fascism enjoys at the moment an almost perfect climate for growth--a world of fear and hunger. Anchored by an introduction by Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Jon Meacham, this concise collection of essays, letters, and poems from one of this country's most eminent literary voices offers much-needed historical context for our current state of the nation--and hope for the future of our society. Speaking to Americans at a time of uncertainty, when democracy itself has come under threat, he reminds us, As long as there is one upright man, as long as there is one compassionate woman . . . the scene is not desolate.
