Elephant on the Moon is a richly illustrated tale of courage, passion and determination. Although it is directed mainly at younger readers, it refers to serious events. Sir Paul Neal in the seventeenth century - one of the astronomers of the Royal Society - is supposed to have been the first to observe an elephant on the moon. At the time, his discovery provoked much confusion and fired the imaginations of many writers. Thanks to Samuel Butler's satirical account, the story reached France. Fontaine himself wrote a tale about it - 'Un animal dans la lune'.

With Moon Power women can connect with the primal, feminine, lunar power. Learn what the heavens are telling you, how to read them and how to act on this knowledge; plus profiles on many strong women. There was a time when the feminine and her guiding light, the Moon, were all-powerful. Men were seen primarily as consorts to the Great Goddess, as embodied in every woman. In these peaceful, agrarian societies, primal feminine powers - intuition, emotion, sexuality, creation, communion with nature - were honored. And the moon, which waxed and waned in predictable cycles, was a symbol for the birth, growth, death, andrenewal of life on Earth. Moon Power's 12 chapters each represent a moon sign. The introduction describes what's meant by Moon Power, provides some history about ancient moon worship, and explains why it went underground. The basics of moon phases and the meaning of new and full moons are explained. Simple rituals for connecting with the power of the moon are included. The book offers guidance on working with each sign as the moon passes through it (i.e. when the moon is in Aries, take assertive action, but watch impulsivity). Each chapter includes a profile of a powerful woman who typifies her lunar sign (Angelina Jolie, Aries Moon; Malala Yousafzai, Libra Moon). A Goddess and Power Animal for each moon sign and activities and rituals for connecting with their energy during certain moon phases are also provided. Moon Power will inspirewomen to recognize and develop their lunar nature. It will show them how, through reflection, ritual, and purposeful action, to understand their emotional nature and inner selves more deeply.

This classic compendium of lunar literature covers moon mythology, worship, superstitions and is of great interest to cultural scholars and mythologists alike. For Man the moon has always exerted a magic and madness. This madness and magic has paid off in the Apollo accomplishments. And still man continues to dream of new worlds to conquer. After the moon, what? Will it be Mars and Venus? While the earth is getting smaller, our universe is growing by leaps and space ships. What could be more timely than a book about the moon! Moon Lore, set the stage for the recent lunar landing almost 100 years ago with its scientific observations such as the one which saw "the surface of the satellite scooped into deep valleys, or spread over with vast walled plains from 130 to 140 miles across. But this timely book according to its author has no pretensions to scientific merit; in fact, he calls it "a compendium of lunar literature in its least scientific branches." He does say, however, that his work "is a contribution to light literature, and to the literature of light.

Why do we keep talking about so many environmental problems and rarely solve any? If these are scientific issues, then why can't scientists solve them or at least agree on what to do? In his new book, The Moon in the Nautilus Shell, ecologist Daniel Botkin explains why. For one thing, although we live in a world of constantly changing environments and talk a lot about climate change, most of our environmental laws, policies, and scientific premises are based on the idea that the environment is constant, never changing, except when people affect it. For another, we have lost contact with nature in personal ways. Disconnected from our surroundings, we lack the deep understanding and feelings about the environment to make meaningful judgments. The environment has become just another one of those special interests that interferes with our lives. Poised to be a core text of the twenty-first century environmental movement, The Moon in the Nautilus Shell challenges us to think critically about our role in nature.

Meet Greg. He’s a stocky guy with an outsized swagger. He’s been the intimidating yet sociable don of his posse of friends—including Abe, Keith, Mike, Kevin, Torn Trunk, and Willie. But one arid summer the tide begins to shift and the third-ranking Kevin starts to get ambitious, seeking a higher position within this social club. But this is no ordinary tale of gangland betrayal—Greg and his entourage are bull elephants in Etosha National Park, Namibia, where, for the last twenty-three years, Caitlin O’Connell has been a keen observer of their complicated friendships. In Elephant Don, O’Connell, one of the leading experts on elephant communication and social behavior, offers a rare inside look at the social world of African male elephants. Elephant Don tracks Greg and his group of bulls as O’Connell tries to understand the vicissitudes of male friendship, power struggles, and play. A frequently heart-wrenching portrayal of commitment, loyalty, and affection between individuals yearning for companionship, it vividly captures an incredible repertoire of elephant behavior and communication. Greg, O’Connell shows, is sometimes a tyrant and other times a benevolent dictator as he attempts to hold onto his position at the top. Though Elephant Don is Greg’s story, it is also the story of O’Connell and the challenges and triumphs of field research in environs more hospitable to lions and snakes than scientists. Readers will be drawn into dramatic tales of an elephant society at once exotic and surprisingly familiar, as O’Connell’s decades of close research reveal extraordinary discoveries about a male society not wholly unlike our own. Surely we’ve all known a Greg or two, and through this book we may come to know them in a whole new light.

The Masnavi of Jalal al-Din Rumi (1207-1273), a massive poem of some 25,000 rhyming couplets, by common consent ranks among the world's greatest masterpieces of religious literature. The material which makes up the Masnavi is divisible into two different categories: theoretical discussion of the principal themes of Sufi mystical life and doctrine, and stories of fables intended to illustrarte those themes as they arise. This selection of tales is the most accessible introduction to this giant epic for the non-perisan reader.

Acclaimed composer Richard Turnbull, grieving at his wife's slow descent into schizophrenia, is notified at this crisis point in his life that his daughter Pia has been murdered in East Africa. He travels to Kenya to investigate her death. His quest leads him to a beautiful island off the coast where he quickly becomes enmeshed in a nightmare world of hard drugs, ivory poaching and sexual intrigue. As the story moves rapidly to its apocalyptic climax, Turnbull clashes violently with the island's ruler, the charming but ruthless Sultan. On the surface a hard-paced thriller, Night Jasmine Man echoes with layer upon layer of meaning, built as it is on a bedrock of ancient myths. Orpheus and Eurydice are here, as is Theseus, and the Cretan myth of a bull-god risen from the sea. It is also shot through with reverence for the natural primal beauty of Africa - sun, sea, wind, elephant, buffalo, birds and fish. At once mystical and highly erotic, tender and sensuous, this compelling novel poses questions about the origin of good and evil and celebrates a passionate belief in the redeeming power of love.

'Your soul each moment struggles hard with death - Think of your faith as though it's your last breath. Your life is like a purse, and night and day Are counters of gold coins you've put away' Rumi is the greatest mystic poet to have written in Persian, and the Masnavi is his masterpiece. Divided into six books and consisting of some 26,000 verses, the poem was designed to convey a message of divine love and unity to the disciples of Rumi's Sufi order, known today as the Whirling Dervishes. Like the earlier books, Book Three interweaves amusing stories with homilies to instruct pupils in mystical knowledge. It has a special focus on epistemology, illustrated with narratives that involve the consumption of food. This is the first ever verse translation of Book Three of the Masnavi. It follows the original by presenting Rumi's most mature mystical teachings in simple and attractive rhyming couplets.

What is the cost of conscious aware citizens? At what age can we confirm this? As Helmut charges forward into life, he begins to realize some the landmarks of change in his life are like planned disasters. Mostly, he is led by success, despite its controls. Technology is changing the world undeniably, but its timed application is what begins to get his attention. Also, because of the nature of daytime routine critical thinking is diminished quickly, and then forgotten. As disaster economics displaces imbedded cultures Americans are seeing shattering community changes. Helmut’s father is an armed forces civil servant. He is sworn to country. What are the nurturing cues and consequences for the children? Obviously, the American family absorbs and enables the ones that survive bad choices. Some will say this book is an example of radical behavior modification. Incrementally, this book is a rite of passage for Helmut to leap forward in his thinking, pushing him sometimes dangerously. From the beginning, the question is “If man can be made predictable, can the adventure be man-made?” This series of short capers causes internalized shock, skepticism, and self-preservation. Elephant Step happens so naturally, or does it?
