Women who run with the wolves : myths and stories of the wild woman archetype by Clarissa Pinkola Estés( Book )

18 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in Spanish and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Within every woman there is a wild and natural creature, a powerful force, filled with good instincts, passionate creativity, and ageless knowing. Her name is Wild Woman, but she is an endangered species. Though the gifts of wildish nature come to us at birth, society's attempt to "civilize" us into rigid roles has plundered this treasure, and muffled the deep, life-giving messages of our own souls. Without Wild Woman, we become over-domesticated, fearful, uncreative, trapped." "Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Ph. D., Jungian analyst and cantadora storyteller, shows how woman's vitality can be restored through what she calls "psychic archeological digs" into the bins of the female unconscious. In Women Who Run with the Wolves, Dr. Estes uses multicultural myths, fairy tales, folk tales, and stories chosen from over twenty years of research that help women reconnect with the healthy, instinctual, visionary attributes of the Wild Woman archetype." "Dr. Estes collects the bones of many stories, looking for the archetypal motifs that set a woman's inner life into motion. "La Loba" teaches about the transformative function of the psyche. In "Bluebeard", we learn what to do with wounds that will not heal; in "Skeleton Woman", we glimpse the mystical power of relationship and how dead feelings can be revived; "Vasalisa the Wise" brings our lost womanly instincts to the surface again; "The Handless Maiden" recovers the Wild Woman initiation rites; and "The Little Match Girl" warns against the insidious dangers of a life spent in fantasy." "In these and other stories, we focus on the many qualities of Wild Woman. We retrieve, examine, love, and understand her, and hold her against our deep psyches as one who is both magic and medicine." "In Women Who Run with the Wolves, Dr. Estes has created a new lexicon for describing the female psyche. Fertile and lifegiving, it is a psychology of women in the truest sense, a knowing of the soul."--Jacket

The innocent man : murder and injustice in a small town by John Grisham( Book )

12 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in Spanish and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La primera obra de no ficción de Grisham es un escalofriante thriller legal, basado en hechos reales. Narra la historia de un hombre que creyó haberlo perdido todo... Incluso antes de conocer el infierno. Hubo un tiempo en que Ron Williamson era una joven promesa del béisbol. Cuando los Yankees estaban a punto de ofrecerle la oportunidad de cumplir su sueño, una inesperada lesión puso fin a su carrera. Ron tuvo que renunciar a la Liga Americana y regresar a casa de su madre, en la pequeña y tranquila Ada, en Oklahoma. Abandonado a la autocompasión no podía imaginar que en realidad no conocía el verdadero significado de perderlo todo. En 1982 aparece el cuerpo de Debra Sue Carter, una joven camarera conocida de Ron, brutalmente violada y asesinada. Unas pruebas insustanciales bastan para llevarle al corredor de la muerte. Víctima de un proceso judicial tan torpe como injusto, solo haría falta una prueba de ADN para demostrar su inocencia... Para su desgracia, la ciencia tardaría unos años en estar de su lado. La crítica ha dicho... Grisham ha creado un thriller legal con el mismo suspense y ritmo vertiginoso que un best seller de ficción. The Boston Globe Una investigación meticulosa... Una historia absorbente. Entretainment Weekly La prosa reducida a lo esencial y la voz realista de Grisham hacen que sea una lectura verdaderamente tensa. People

A painted house : a novel by John Grisham( Book )

2 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in Spanish and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The hill people and the Mexicans arrived on the same day. It was a Wednesday, early in September 1952. The Cardinals were five games behind the Dodgers with three weeks to go, and the season looked hopeless. The cotton, however, was waist-high to my father, over my head, and he and my grandfather could be heard before supper whispering words that were seldom heard. It could be a 'good crop'." Thus begins from author John Grisham, a story inspired by his own childhood in rural Arkansas. The narrator is a farm boy named Luke Chandler, age seven, who lives in the cotton fields with his parents and grandparents in a little house that's never been painted. The Chandlers farm eighty acres that they rent, not own, and when the cotton is ready they hire a truckload of Mexicans and a family from the Ozarks to help harvest it. For six weeks they pick cotton, battling the heat, the rain, the fatigue, and, sometimes, each other. As the weeks pass Luke sees and hears things no seven-year-old could possibly be prepared for, and finds himself keeping secrets that not only threaten the crop but will change the lives of the Chandlers forever. This is a moving story of one boy's journey from innocence to experience
