Welcome

In the best tradition of the Internet, we at Kellscraft Studio are proud to bring to you hard to find, previously printed books now in the public domain.  Our focus is on public domain books (anything published prior to 1923 in the U.S.), and we concentrate on books known for their wonderful illustrations and philosophy of life.  Some books at our site will have no illustrations, but are available here for their writing and importance.  All books published here are in the public domain and out of copyright, so are available to everyone to read, print and use in classroom settings.

If you have questions regarding the web site, or any book listed here, feel free to contact me, Jeff Kelley, at:

Chesterville Center Union Meeting House 1st Annual Poetry Readings - Paperback

Chesterville Center Union Meeting House 1st Annual Poetry Readings - eBook

CCUMH cover

More poets than one might guess — both published and yet-to-be-discovered — lurk in the hollows and hills of Chesterville. On October 9, 2015, the first Chesterville Poetry Night on record was held at the Chesterville Center Union Meeting House. Chesterville poets and their admirers gathered in the time-honored community space to share truth and beauty, wit and wisdom. Several present-day artists read their own works, while works of a few authors from the town's past were read by current residents. This little volume is the result of the generosity of the Poetry Night artists and the hard-working volunteers behind the non-profit Meeting House. We hope it will preserve part of the spirit of that evening. Our even greater hope is that it will inspire more poetry and poets to emerge from the hidden reaches of Chesterville.

A GI in America by Doug Rawlings - Paperback

A GI in America by Doug Rawlings - Ebook

A G.I. In America

"Poetry is meant to summarize universal feelings. Doug Rawlings' poems capture beautifully the revulsion to war and the spirit of those who work for peace."
— Ann Wright, US Army Reserve Colonel (ret) and former US diplomat.

"Rawlings has written powerfully about the different facets of the veteran’s experience. His poems will be cathartic to some and revealing to others. Perhaps they will be most revealing to those who hang around veterans and who have trouble understanding."
— Dr. Jon Oplinger, Vietnam Veteran and author of Quang Tri Cadence: Memoir of a Rifle Platoon Leader in the Mountains of Vietnam.






  "Doug Rawlings' poems about the Vietnam War, full of anger, shame, suffering and solace, are hard to bear—as they should be. His poems about family life, children, the passing of friends since the war are honest, vulnerable, playful and loving. Together they allow him, and us, full humanity, an expansion of humanity that is particularly poignant in light of its denial to those on both sides who did not survive the war."
— Rob Shetterly

 “I have met Doug Rawlings only once, and then only in passing at a Veterans for Peace convention in his home state of Maine in 2010, but I have been reading his poetry for nearly 40 years. Spending time with this compilation of his life’s work, I feel as if I’m in the company of an old and dear and trusted friend. The range of his emotions, the diversity of his interests, the keenness of his sensibilities, his capacity to be fully and consciously human leave no doubt that his has been and continues to be a life examined and well worth living.”
— W. D. Ehrhart
