The mythology of cats : feline legend and lore through the ages by Gerald Hausman( Book )

10 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a bedside, fireside, outside, and anywhere companion for cat owners and cat lovers. Here are scores of stories, myths, legends, anecdotes, and fun tidbits. Covering more than 25 breeds, this volume is the first of its kind to reveal the archetypal cat, the cat from all four continents, who came aboard the Ark and traveled upon the Titanic. Indestructible, inviolable, mystical, the cat is shown as goddess, priestess, midwife, doctor, lawyer, journalist, politician, and, most of all, our feline friend. The Mythology of Cats takes us on a literary and historical survey of catdom. Award-winning folklorist Gerald Hausman and his wife, Loretta have been collecting cat creation stories for over two decades. Here are more than fifty unusual tales--intriguing, hilarious, heartbreaking, and all about the quirky tendencies of each major breed. The book includes such ancient legends as the cat who actually named the country of Scotland, the cat who was snorted into being by a lion aboard the Ark, and the cats who, after being driven out of Ireland by Saint Patrick, returned to their Egyptian homeland. It also includes more modern tales such as the story of the saintly cat who kept Jack Kerouac safe and sound, and the cats who wrote their own tableau of feline history, according to Syvia Townsend Warner. Literary figures abound, from Rainer Maria Rilke to Colette, from Tennessee Williams to Lewis Carroll. Historical references show the cat's role in the prayers of Muhammad and the death of Buddha, as well as the role of the cat as a benign witch, a saint of the harvest festival, and a necromancer in medieval and modern times.--Adapted from dust jacket

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this one-of-a-kind collection, the words of reggae legend Bob Marley are brought together as a testament to the deeply felt and powerfully motivated sense of spirit of the revered singer-songwriter and performer who helped spread both Jamaican music and the Rastafarian movement across the world. The texts, many never before published in book form, were gathered at 56 Hope Road, Kingston, Jamaica, where Bob lived and worked in the 1970s. In addition to a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, Marley was awarded a United Nations Medal of Peace. Bob Marley's wisdom came not only through his songs but also from his poetic, spoken words. The short selections in this book, which are compiled from interviews he gave over the years, will give readers a true sense of who Bob Marley really was and are bound to inspire them with his timeless message of faith, unity, and love.--From publisher description
