Elizabeth Davis's first book, Heart & Hands, is often considered the bible for practicing midwives. Now Davis has teamed up with fellow midwife Carol Leonard to attend to all stages in a woman's life, by imagining and exploring 13 positive archetypes. Among the archetypes presented in The Women's Wheel of Life are familiar ones like the Crone and the Maiden, but also new ones, such as the Matriarch and the Priestess, that apply to women in midlife. (Viking, $22.95 256p ISBN 0-670-86227-4) Appearing on the heels of two popular films about Scottish history, Braveheart and Rob Roy, Stuart Reid's 1745 offers a military history of the attempt by Bonnie Prince Charlie and his House of Stuart to regain the throne of England and Scotland. The text covers the prince's 10-month campaign, which climaxed--250 years ago--in the Battle of Culloden, which was the focus of Reid's Like Hungry Wolves. Illustrations.
