The Seven Sisters of the Pleiades Book Description:

The legends of the Seven Sisters of the Pleiades that poets, priests, prophets, shamans, storytellers, artists, singers, and historians have told throughout time are retold in this compilation of the stories that have found their inspiration in nine beautiful stars clustered together in the night sky. While particular attention in this cross-cultural study is paid to the influence of the Pleiades cluster on the living traditions of indigenous people in North America, Australia, Japan, and the Pacific, much ancient mythology passed down through written and visual sources from ancient Egypt, India, Greece, and South America is also explored. Appearances of the myths in the modern world are also mentioned, including American presidential elections, Halloween, Atlantis, the Titanic, and Subaru automobiles. Serious astronomical research complements the variety of mythological explanations for the stars' existence by providing the modern world's scientific understanding of them.

The Seven Sisters of Sleep Book Description:

This groundbreaking survey, written in 1860, is a radically open-minded look at the use of drugs across the world and throughout the ages. Early users of tobacco in Russia would have their noses cut off and repeat offenders their heads. Pope Innocent XII excommunicated any who used it in St. Peters. Marijuana users in 14th century Egypt would have their teeth extracted for the crime. Yet use of these and other forbidden substances continued to grow. If only as a record of the perennial failure of harsh punishments to deter drug use Victorian naturalist Mordecai Cooke's work The Seven Sisters of Sleep would remain significant. But Cooke's natural humor and keen insights have ensured this work's reputation as possibly the best early book from what has grown into an enormous body of literature on mind- and mood-altering substances. Written at a time, similar to our own, when drug use was being reconsidered, The Seven Sisters of Sleep is a thought-provoking and open-minded look at the use of drugs across the world and throughout the ages. Quite popular in its day and a major influence on Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, this is an important book for anyone interested in an unbiased account of humanity's long involvement with psychoactive, hallucinogenic, and stimulant plants.

The Seven Sisters Book Description:

Candida Wilton--a woman recently betrayed, rejected, divorced, and alienated from her three grown daughters--moves from a beautiful Georgian house in lovely Suffolk to a two-room walk-up flat in a run-down building in central London. Candida is not exactly destitute. So, is the move perversity, she wonders, a survival test, or is she punishing herself? How will she adjust to this shabby, menacing, but curiously appealing city? What can happen, at her age, to change her life? And yet, as she climbs the dingy communal staircase with her suitcases, she feels both nervous and exhilarated. There is a relationship with a computer to which she now confides her past and her present. And friendships of sorts with other women--widows, divorced, never married, women straddled between generations. And then Candida's surprise inheritance . . . A beautifully rendered story, this is Margaret Drabble at her novelistic best.

Seven Sisters Book Description:

Meet Benni Harper…a spirited ex-cowgirl, quilter, and folk-art expert who’s staking out her own corner of the contemporary American West. She’s got an eye for murderous designs—and a talent for piecing together the most complex and cold-blooded crimes. When Benni’s stepson announces his plans to marry into the wealthy, influential Brown family, she and her husband are invited to the Browns’ sprawling ranch, Seven Sisters, to celebrate the engagement. But the party takes a tragic turn when a member of the esteemed family is murdered. While trying to unravel the feuding clan’s tangled past, Benni uncovers a shocking pattern of tragedy—and stitches a hodgepodge of clues into a very disturbing design. . . Seven Sisters, a challenging pattern that features a single six-pointed star surrounded by six identical stars, was most likely inspired by an observation of nature—the Seven Sisters is a loose grouping of stars in the constellation Taurus. Although the stars in the cluster appear to be close together, they are, in fact, quite far apart.

Seven Sisters Book Description:

Including me Recluse, seven sisters, my six sisters and I run the D.A.I.B.E.O. asylum for the criminally insane together. We were originally put here when we were born and because of our family history were deemed to grow up to become dangerous criminal psychopaths. We don't know or understand why we had this title put on us. Our oath and responsibility to each other is to wreak havoc among male patients, boyfriends, husbands, lovers, and anyone else who gets in our way. I wonder a lot about what all my sisters and I do out of habit, our personalities, features, mentality, and traits that we have that were genetically inherited from our grand-mother and mother. Or is it all derived or formed from the psychotropic drugs we've been on most of our incarcerated lives. We don't know any of our family, but we all have something special in common past our looks, personalities and features. We love eating brains scrambled with eggs and onions. This is the story of how we found out who our grand-mother, mother and aunts were and where we came from. My sisters and I are a great medical team and work together to saw off the top of male patient's, boyfriend's, husband's, and lover's heads and carefully scoop out their brains to scramble with eggs and onions. A normality compared to the capture and torture we put them through by chopping off one ball at a time then the dick before their final demise. Sometimes we chop off one ball just to hear them all screaming in unison.

Seven Sisters Book Description:

It is July 19, 1863 when the "Amazon" arrives from London at the New York docks with eight hundred Mormons on board. Among the arriving Saints are seven young, unmarried, unrelated sisters in the gospel, who have been placed together as a family during their forty-four-day voyage. The Seven Sisters, as they have come to be called, have become close enough to vow to stay together all the way to their new home in Utah. The Sisters must now travel overland by railroads and waterways to the Mormon outfitting camp in Nebraska Territory, where they plan to join the down and back wagons and trek to the Salt Lake Valley. As they make this journey, the Sisters experience many difficulties from the rigors of changing trains and riverboats to sleeping outside in unpredictable weather to wondering when or where they will find their next sustenance. While facing unexpected accidents, sickness, and loss, the Sisters trek the last thousand miles on foot in unforgiving environments with the possibility of cattle and buffalo stampedes, hostile Indians, and treacherous river crossings. In this continuing historical tale, the Seven Sisters must face their biggest fears and rely on their faith, courage, and optimism to survive this challenging journey to their Zion home."
