'I am most grateful for two things: that I was born in North Korea, and that I escaped from North Korea.' Yeonmi Park was not dreaming of freedom when she escaped from North Korea. She didn't even know what it meant to be free. All she knew was that she was running for her life, that if she and her family stayed behind they would die - from starvation, or disease, or even execution. This book is the story of Park's struggle to survive in the darkest, most repressive country on earth; her harrowing escape through China's underworld of smugglers and human traffickers; and then her escape from China across the Gobi desert to Mongolia, with only the stars to guide her way, and from there to South Korea and at last to freedom; and finally her emergence as a leading human rights activist - all before her 21st birthday.

Despite the long human history of the Canadian central arctic, there is still little historical writing on the Inuit peoples of this vast region. Although archaeologists and anthropologists have studied ancient and contemporary Inuit societies, the Inuit world in the crucial period from the 16th to the 20th centuries remains largely undescribed and unexplained. "In Order to Live Untroubled "helps fill this 400-year gap by providing the first, broad, historical survey of the Inuit peoples of the central arctic. Drawing on a wide array of eyewitness accounts, journals, oral sources, and findings from material culture and other disciplines, historian Renee Fossett explains how different Inuit societies developed strategies and adaptations for survival to deal with the challenges of their physical and social environments over the centuries. "In Order to Live Untroubled" examines how and why Inuit created their cultural institutions before they came under the pervasive influence of Euro-Canadian society. This fascinating account of Inuit encounters with explorers, fur traders, and other Aboriginal peoples is a rich and detailed glimpse into a long-hidden historical world.

"The River Styx isn't far ahead. When it's time for the final crossing, doc, I want you there at the helm." Hearing these words from Steven Foster, hospice physician Scott Eberle unhesitatingly responded, "I give you my word, Steven. If it's within my powers, I'll be there." In a matter of weeks, Steven would be dead, having succumbed to a genetic lung disease at the young age of 64. THE FINAL CROSSING is the story of the journey these two people made together across the river that separates the living from the dead.Steven and his wife, Meredith, had spent nearly thirty years exploring, creating, and enacting wilderness rites of passage - a form of symbolic death. Scott had spent nearly twenty years learning to help others through the rite of passage that is physical death, and more recently he had also begun working as a wilderness guide. As Scott writes in the book, "while symbolic dying and literal dying are obviously not the same, they are deeply connected". During Steven's final days, the lessons they taught each other -- about symbolic and physical death -- were profound. As an old medieval prayer says, "To be blessed in death, one must learn to live. To be blessed in life, one must learn to die".Visit www.thefinalcrossing.com."This book is itself a right of passage. Extraordinary insights shared by two remarkable people, one dying, the other the inner life and decisions of the physician and friend attending this fine fellow preparing to head into death. This is the best work of its sort I have come across. There are so many levels, so many books in this book that it might well become a teaching text in many classrooms". Stephen Levine, author of "Who Dies?," "Healing into Life and Death" and "A Year to Live"

Animism

Graham Harvey applies the new use of the term 'animism' to the religious worldviews of communities and cultures such as Ojibwe, Maori, Aboriginal Australian and eco-Pagan to introduce the diversity of ways of being animist. The book explores what role deities, creators, tricksters, shamans, cannibals totems and elders play in these religious traditions and relationships? The book also touches on the 'animist realism' of West African literatures, the 'perspectivism' of Amazonian shamans, and the relational ethics of South and Central Asian communities. The notions that 'animism' is about 'beliefs in spirits' are rejected in favour of a nuanced and positive evaluation of indigenous and environmentalist understandings that the world would be a better place if humans celebrated their relationships with the whole of life.
