"Join Mary Jane as she treks along the winding ancient roads of pilgrims, across the continent of Europe and beyond. All across Europe, and beyond into Turkey and the Middle East, there is a maze of walks on which to make incredible discoveries and have plenty of adventures. The best-known is the Camino de Santiago trail, or St James Way, along which a symbolic scallop shell marks the way. Mary Jane hopes to complete it in its entirety, one section at a time Ancient pilgrim trails still in use today traverse nations and mountain ranges across Europe and into the eastern Mediterranean region. So, strap on your backpack, your walking boots and come along for the ride. Discover little-known walkways and pilgrim trails dating back hundreds of years, as Mary Jane sets out to cover as much ground as she can. Pilgrim ways aren't just for the religious. People of all ages and walks of life come to walk them. The journey becomes one of learning about other cultures and their interconnected histories and stories. Mary Jane shares her experiences of this in A Maverick Pilgrim Way. Racking up many a kilometre all over Europe, and east of Istanbul, Mary Jane sets out along the way in in a great variety of places, from Ireland and Portugal in the west to Russia and Turkey in the east. The landscapes and jaw-dropping scenery are one thing - while the people, cultures and histories are another. Walking through cities and over the countryside has been a humbling experience, one in which Mary Jane has met the people and got up close and personal with each of the cultures and countries she visited. Follow Mary Jane as she makes her way along ancient trading routes and pilgrim paths, and learn about the people she meets, the experiences of her journey and a history of pilgrimages across Europe and the Mediterranean."--Amazon.com.

For many people, the name of Archbishop Rembert Weakland brings to mind only connotations of scandal the titillating tale of a prominent priest disgraced. But that whiff of dishonor barely begins to tell the whole story. / In these pages Archbishop Weakland recounts his life from his childhood in rural Pennsylvania to his retirement from the archbishopric in 2002 at the age of 75, all in the context of the Church that he long served. Weakland takes readers with him to Rome, where he discovered the splendor of a whole new intellectual world, and then to New York for his extensive musical study at Julliard and Columbia University. From his early days in the priesthood to his struggles with pontiffs, Weakland details how he learned to become a leader and minister to his people and how his famously liberal beliefs affected his ministry. While he presents an honest account of the scandal he is so often recognized for, the complete picture beyond rumor and accusation may come as a surprise to many readers. / Throughout his memoir Weakland describes with poignant honesty his psychological, spiritual, and sexual growth. Candid and engaging, A Pilgrim in a Pilgrim Church offers a fascinating inside look at both Pope Paul VI and Pope John Paul II even as it tells the story of a life fully lived.

For over thirty years, Sue Haynes has taught highly creative children who resist standardized learning and who are often mislabeled ADD and/or learning disabled. Through supporting their creative expression, she has developed an alternative lens through which she sees their unique strengths. Through this lens Sue sees, not disabled learners, but talented, intuitive individuals who exhibit a passion for learning what intrigues them and a drive to express their learning in creative ways. These learners are compelled to be true to their inner agendas and thus resist curriculums that lack personal relevance. Sue has discovered that creatively gifted learners, and indeed all learners, need the freedom and support to learn through intuitive knowing and creative expression in order to maximize their potential. Sue’s book about her theories and experiences,Creative Mavericks: Beacons of Authentic Learning, consists of three sections: Section One includes “Who is the Creatively Gifted Learner,” which explores the attributes of highly creative learners, and “Seeing Through a Different Lens: Facilitating the Creatively Gifted Learner” which describes her teaching; Section Two, “Heartsongs: The Struggles and Triumphs of Creatively Gifted Learners,” includes the stories of twelve individuals who share reflections on their schooling and the fruition of their creative empowerment; Section Three, “Implications of Education for Creatively Gifted Learners: Awakening Passion and Authenticity in All Learners,” further explores the conditions which foster learning empowerment through the reflections of nine innovative classroom teachers. These teachers reveal that the passion and creative expression so evident in highly creative learners are seeded within all learners and can be awakened by teaching which honors the uniqueness of each individual. Sue’s hope is that Creative Mavericks may inspire an exploration of teaching and learning that moves beyond the confines of standardized education and empowers our true potential.

The stories collected here take readers to a hobo convention in Iowa; Mardi Gras in Mobile, Alabama; the last leg of the Oregon Trail; a tennis tournament in Miami; and one of the final baseball games played at Chicago's old Comiskey Park. Keeping with the theme of unsung places, Swick writes about Columbus, Ohio (where he searches for the spirit of James Thurber); Normandy, France; Archer City, Texas; Transylvania; Turkey; Trinidad; Vietnam; and Croatia. In addition, there are stories with more familiar subjects, such as a cultural exchange to Cuba, a Caribbean cruise, and the childhood journeys that put him on the road to becoming a travel writer. Covering a wide range of diverse cultures-half the stories are set in the United States, half abroad-the book also examines the meaning of travel, and celebrates its beauty at a time when many are questioning its importance.

Pilgrims to the Wild is a survey of American writers who have responded to their encounters with the natural world. Ranging in its treatment from Thoreau's important but neglected essay, 'Walking,' to the exuberant letters of the young artist Everett Ruess (who disappeared in the Escalante canyonlands), this is a broadly based exploration that brings to bear Eastern and Western classical philosophy, as well as contemporary critical theory, on a distinctive tradition of American Writing--those works concerned with the human relationship to the nonhuman world. In addition to offering a fresh interpretation of classic authors such a Thoreau and Muir, this book introduces readers to the less widely known but equally fascinating writers Clarence King and Mary Austin.
