This vibrant memoir features the life story of Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell, focusing on Mitchell’s amazing journey to the Moon in 1971 and highlighting the many steps he took to get there. The former astronaut recounts his childhood as a farm boy in New Mexico; flying solo as a teen; living in Roswell during the alleged UFO crash; studying at Carnegie Mellon and MIT; his experiences as a navy combat pilot and finally a NASA astronaut. In suspenseful prose he details his historic flight to the Moon with Alan Shepard and Stu Roosa, describing everything from the practical—eating, sleeping, and going to the bathroom in space—to the metaphysical, such as the life-changing sense of connectedness to the universe that he felt during his return to Earth. Resources include lists of websites about space, museums and organizations, films and videos, and books for further reading. Edgar Mitchell was the Lunar Module Pilot for the Apollo 14 mission and the sixth man to walk on the Moon. He is the author of The Way of the Explorer, Paradigm Shift, and The Space Less Traveled; the recipient of many medals and awards; the founder of the Institute of Noetic Sciences. He lives in Lake Worth, Florida. Ellen Mahoney is an instructor in the Department of Journalism and Technical Communication at Metro State University of Denver. She lives in Boulder, Colorado.

After the vicious, insect-like aliens called the Saurons invaded Earth and killed billions, they enslaved the survivors, forcing them to build mysterious temples under brutal conditions. In an effort to control their human slaves, the Saurons install a puppet president to keep them under control. But President Alexander Franklin and Chief of Security Jack Manning aren't about to play along. Rebellion is in the air, and the fight for freedom is spreading far and wide, from the center of activity in Washington to the distant lands of Guatemala. A diverse group of rebels, including an ex-FBI agent, a doctor inside the heart of enemy territory, and the president will have to band together with a host of other insurgents from across war-torn Earth to overcome impossible odds if they're to save what's left of humankind. With non-stop action and a remarkable cast of characters, the epic conclusion to William C. Dietz’s DeathDay is a thrilling tale of adversity, rebellion, strength and humanity in a futuristic world where the survival of the many lies in the hands of the brave few.

Are you a Steward for the Earth? Is your heart pulled to understand that we are an inseparable part of all nature? Albert Einstein said that we must “widen our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” Unfortunately and tragically, this knowledge of our interconnection to Mother Nature-Mother Earth has been lost, or is naively considered as not important. We are “bleeding at the roots because we are cut off from the earth,” as D H Lawrence once said. But we can rediscover this connection to Mother Earth and experience it simply and strongly, through Blessingways. You can interact with her in a personal and intimate way. It becomes natural to respect, love, honor, and protect her. And these values mirror back to you because you are linked. Blessingways allow you to have experiential interconnections with Mother Earth. This is your function as a steward for the earth. Stewards for the Earth, a book of mindful awareness, offers experiential meditations, called Blessingways. These Blessingways heighten your enjoyment and enrich your connection to Mother Nature-Mother Earth. A steward for the earth practices mindful awareness.

Earthrise tells the remarkable story of the first photographs of Earth from space and the totally unexpected impact of those images. The Apollo “Earthrise” and “Blue Marble” photographs were beamed across the world some forty years ago. They had an astounding effect, Robert Poole explains, and in fact transformed thinking about the Earth and its environment in a way that echoed throughout religion, culture, and science. Gazing upon our whole planet for the first time, we saw ourselves and our place in the universe with new clarity. Poole delves into new areas of research and looks at familiar history from fresh perspectives. With intriguing anecdotes and wonderful pictures, he examines afresh the politics of the Apollo missions, the challenges of whole Earth photography, and the story of the behind-the-scenes struggles to get photographs of the Earth put into mission plans. He traces the history of imagined visions of Earth from space and explores what happened when imagination met reality. The photographs of Earth represented a turning point, Poole contends. In their wake, Earth Day was inaugurated, the environmental movement took off, and the first space age ended. People turned their focus back toward Earth, toward the precious and fragile planet we call home.
