A cargo plane on a routine flight suddenly hits a high-turbulence storm, forcing a crash landing hundreds of miles off course in the barren Gobi desert. Among the survivors, one eccentric passenger leads the crew to build a new plane - against all odds, against all hope, and sometimes - against each other

His goal is to steal the five most advanced rescue vehicles and use them for his own agenda. With Jeff and his four eldest sons on a mission, there's only one person with any hope of stopping the takeover - the youngest son, Alan, who vows to save his family and keep the Thunderbirds alive
Habitat : new and selected poems, 1965-2005 by Brendan Galvin( Book )

5 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Habitat, Galvin's fourteenth poetry book, combines eighteen new works with lyric pieces from the past forty years - including two book-length narratives, Wampanoag Traveler and Saints in Their Ox-Hide Boat. Galvin intimately conveys his landscapes, birds and animals, people, and weather. By elevating the commonplace to the crucial, he takes his readers very far from the familiar."--Jacket

The strength of a named thing : poems by Brendan Galvin( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Strength of a Named Thing, readers who have delighted in Brendan Galvin's exuberant style and humor will discover further pleasures in his encounters with the natural world of his native Cape Cod - the birds, foxes, roads and mysterious vegetables, and the equally quirky humans." "Many of these poems involve names and naming things. The speaker in "Pondycherry" is intrigued by that word and how it entered his consciousness. In "Captain Teabag and the Wellfleet Witches," the Captain is attacked by a group of shape-shifters he catalogs as subfellows and nobaths, skroaks, wowry-eyed giglets, drabboons, and so forth."--Jacket

Sky and island light : poems by Brendan Galvin( Book )

4 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Light and shadows, Galvin suggests a web of sensibility. Cemeteries, deserted villages, lost faces - such fragments Galvin transmutes into meditations on the blood-deep mysteries of death, desire, and the evolution of consciousness, all conjured with an instinct for the telling nuance of behavior and a delight in the language of everyday conversation
Ocean effects : poems by Brendan Galvin( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sharply observed and metaphorically inventive, Ocean Effects is a worthy follow-up to Galvin's National Book Award finalist Habitat. It includes a new vein of Galvin's trademark richly observed lyric poems on the biota, landscapes, and weathers of coastal New England. Seascapes and the natural world bracket sequences spoken by personae as various as the seventeenth-century American colonist Roger Williams, small-town cops, a squatter in the ruins of Chernobyl, a nineteenth-century Russian general in Mongolia, and a Cape Cod carpenter. Galvin's monologues, tensile and energetic free verse, are
Whirl is king : poems from a life list by Brendan Galvin( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For nearly five decades, poet Brendan Galvin has written about the birds of the tidal flats, woods, and marshes around his Cape Cod home and on islands in the North Atlantic. He knows their field marks, habits, and songs, and his work demonstrates an obvious fascination with them. Whirl is King gathers forty-three of his bird poems about herons, owls, shorebirds, warblers, raptors, wrens, and other exotic visitors blown in by wind and storm. Whirl is King features Galvin's hallmark descriptive powers and verbal music on full display and demonstrates his talent as a contemporary poet."--Jacket
