River Rock

by David A. Wright, River Rock Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download River Rock book, Please replace book description with the following: All six foot two of Jake Southern stepped onto the gravel covered road atop the levee, giving him a view of the winding river and the summer haze-covered landscape of the Mississippi Delta. Jake had come home again. Home to what? He had left twenty-five years ago the town and people who had helped shape his life. Now he was summoned back. What would he discover there or uncover about himself and the people he had loved? Would he find them the same or find all his memories were lies? Jake would return to find the world along the Mississippi river different from what he had left as a young man. Was it different or was he? Murder, greed, betrayal, love and honor were what he found in coming home. And through all of this, he would find what he had been searching for all these years. David Wright says, "life really does begin at 50." That's when he began writing "stories" for family members, and through their encouragement River Rock was born. David paints pictures with words. Love of his native Mississippi Delta brought this novel to life. His talent as a Mississippi story teller, who can't help embellishing just a bit, is evident in his unforgettable characters, rich history and settings of the Delta. David spent his career in the trucking industry; the last years as a national spokesman for that industry.

Local Talent

by David Wright, Local Talent Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Local Talent book, In Local Talent, David Wright deepens his poetic engagement with the physical and spiritual terrain of the Midwest. Even when his poems travel far away to Vermont or Italy, Wright's imagination, diction, and poetic eye have been indelibly shaped by the Heartland (its people, communities, fields, roadscapes) through seasons that require "all our talent / to keep our candles and cigarettes lit in the Illinois wind." Formally, the poems range from pantoums and sestinas to elliptical free verse and prose poems. Often sensuous and lyric in nature, Wright's poetry also narrates, converses with other poets, and borrows from musical, artistic, and religious traditions that both vex and soothe. Whether we grieve and mourn our losses, or celebrate fleeting moments of connection to others, this collection offers an honest and imperfect vision of discerning how our varied talents (making art, cultivating community, caring for our bodies, recovering intimacy) root and sustain us in whatever landscape we inhabit if we can "stand, bare-eyed and loving this place" as we struggle to embrace "a nearly open-ended sky."

Mathematics And Music

by David Wright, Mathematics And Music Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Mathematics And Music book, Many people intuitively sense that there is a connection between mathematics and music. If nothing else, both involve counting. There is, of course, much more to the association. David Wright's book is an investigation of the interrelationships between mathematics and music, reviewing the needed background concepts in each subject as they are encountered. Along the way, readers will augment their understanding of both mathematics and music. The text explores the common foundations of the two subjects, which are developed side by side. Musical and mathematical notions are brought together, such as scales and modular arithmetic, intervals and logarithms, tone and trigonometry, and timbre and harmonic analysis. When possible, discussions of musical and mathematical notions are directly interwoven. Occasionally the discourse dwells for a while on one subject and not the other, but eventually the connection is established, making this an integrative treatment of the two subjects. The book is a text for a freshman level college course suitable for musically inclined or mathematically inclined students, with the intent of breaking down any apprehension that either group might have for the other subject. Exercises are given at the end of each chapter. The mathematical prerequisites are a high-school level familiarity with algebra, trigonometry, functions, and graphs. Musically, the student should have had some exposure to musical staffs, standard clefs, and key signatures, though all of these are explained in the text.
