    A Vanished World is an elegant and exquisite portrait of a rural, turn-of-the-century childhood from a young girl's perspective. But Anne Sneller's 'vanished world' is not just the small world she knew as a child; it is the world of the rural America, a peaceful world of family farms, quiet country roads, and small towns, which stretched from New England to the West Coast, from Minnesota to Texas. A Vanished World by Chris Lowney available in Trade Paperback on , also read synopsis and reviews. In a world troubled by religious strife and division, Chris Lowney's vividly written new book .

    In a world torn by religious antagonism, lessons can be learned from medieval Spanish villages where Muslims, Christians, and Jews rubbed shoulders on a daily basis--sharing irrigation canals, bathhouses, municipal ovens, and marketplaces. Medieval Spaniards introduced Europeans to paper manufacture, Hindu-Arabic numerals, philosophical classics, algebra, citrus fruits, cotton, and new medical.   With the publication of Children of a Vanished World, seventy of those photographs are available, thirty-six for the first time. The book is devoted to a subject Vishniac especially loved, and one whose mystery and spontaneity he captured with particular poignancy: children. Selected and edited by the photographer's daughter, Mara Vishniac Kohn.
