There were five. They came together for reasons that no one is even sure of anymore and cut a swath through the universe. Everyone knew their name, and the lined up to follow them. They knew their symbol, the snarling wolf. The warlords formed a following, an almost religion. And then it was over. Years later, and the followings of each of the original warriors have become clans. The clans have grown and trained new warriors over time, creating the driving force in all the universe. Here are four people now, training to follow in the ways of one particular wolf. The wolf that ended it all in the first place, the Blackwolf. This is the start of their journey, the beginning of their training. Gregor Holden, a Prince, who's sense of duty is equaled only by his lust for adventure. Candace Orthon, a legacy who's father is a Blackwolf, who's gradfather was a Blackwolf, and who will be a Blackwolf if it kills her. Ran Grastle, already an accomplished warrior in his own right. He's on the run for a committing a crime to exact justice and cares very little for the clan or anyone else. Xesca, a child of the last planet that the Blackwolf attacked. She has come to learn his ways, his style, so that no one can ever attack her planet again. "These four. If no one else, let these four progress."

My Journey Through African Heritage

Alan Donovan was a co-founder of African Heritage, the continent's first pan-African gallery, which became a pioneering craft retail and wholesale operation in Nairobi. He later constructed The African Heritage House, inspired by the mud architecture he discovered while traveling across the continent and was the driving force behind numerous music, dance, costume, and food festivals and exhibitions that traveled the world for over three decades. Through his work, he discovered and revealed to the world Africa's rich cultural legacy and beauty. In all, he has made an unprecedented contribution to the promotion of arts and culture in Africa and throughout the world. This work reflects all this and more. It is a panoramic documentary and history of so much that has been achieved; it is the author's own story of forty years in Africa, in which, in his own words, he "searched for the continent's beauty and creativity, passing through the glorious sunrises and magnificent sunsets that encompass the splendor and calamity of each new day ... and found an ageless and vibrant inner beauty." The narrative is chronological, presenting the developments of African Heritage from its beginnings, with its many facets and global influence, to its final days, and its failures resulting in part from the devastating impact of recent global events, terrorism and the war thereon on culture and tourism in Kenya.

No Man S Land

This book tells the story of George Monbiot's journeys among some of the tribal peoples of East Africa, showing how they are confronting the forces which threaten to deprive both them and us of the life that civilization has tried to suppress. In northern Kenya he saw how bandits, equipped by the corrupt governments of both Kenya itself and some of its neighbours, have been massacring the nomads, driving the survivors into famine zones where first the cattle then the humans die. Further south he watched the open savannahs on which the nomads rely being divided up and reduced by ploughing. But he also saw that the nomads of East Africa are finding ways to survive. All nomads are opportunists, and the adaptability, the cultural flexibility that opportunism demands means that they are possibly better equipped than any other of the world's traditional peoples to withstand dramatic change.

Eve Preste, aka Eve Dolansky grew up in a small town in Appleton, New York on a large fruit farm. She went to college at Niagara University and Buffalo State College to study journalism. After meeting her first husband, she moved to Florida and had two daughters, Alexis and Sierra. She then, embarked on a 20 year journey in the financial industry. At 45, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Journaling became her vehicle of deliverance from a bottomless abyss. Writing in her journal allowed a to spend time and make some sense of this surreal dream. By exploring deep within her, she began to develop clarity in the midst of a storm. After yielding to the higher power, it helped her welcome the beauty of the entire situation. As Dr. Wayne Dyer says: When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. Perfect health is balanced by a life threatening disease. Once an equilibrium is maintained, we can understand that opposites are joined together. When suffering comes our way, it is how we respond to it that determines who we become. It was her choice to make a calamity or true gift out of her illness. Rather than lamenting, Eve chose to be grateful for each sunrise, sunset person and circumstance in her life. After being diagnosed with breast cancer, Eve embarked on a new journey of wellness. She hopes to establish a wellness center to help people balance their mind body and spirit. One major event can turn ones life around for the better: we hold true to the saying, Things happen for a reason.

My Lost Childhood is a memoir describing immeasurable suffering the author went through in his early childhood. In the late 1980s, the Islamic government began to systematically torture and kill Southern Sudanese families, burn their villages, and enslave young boys and girls. As a result, an approximately, as numbers are largely unknown and only an estimate, 27,000 plus boys from Southern tribes were forced to flee from their homes. Traveling naked and barefoot, they sought refuge in neighboring Fugnido, Ethiopia, where a few years later they were forced to flee yet another civil war. Returning to Sudan, the Islamic government forced them to travel for another five months, ultimately arriving in Kakuma, Kenya, after four years of unthinkable hardship and walking over thousands of miles naked, barefoot, and ailing from starvation, dehydration, and diseases. Many boys perished along the way and their numbers shrank into few thousands. Abraham Deng Ater, separated from his family in 1987, is one of approximately 3,800 boys now known as the Lost Boys of Sudan. He left Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya after several years of massive suffering and was granted refuge in the U.S. in 2001. Many Lost Boys including Abraham have since become U.S. citizens and have continued to pursue their education. Thousands more have also been granted refuge elsewhere and are scattered around the globe.

The true story of the Mau Mau rebellion of 1952-60 in Kenya, told for the first time This book tells for the first time the story of the dirty war the British fought in Kenya, in the run-up to the country's independence in 1964. In 1952, after years of tension and bitterness, the grievances of the Gikuyu people of central Kenya exploded into open rebellion. Only 32 European settlers died in the subsequent fighting, but more than 1,800 African civilians, over 3,000 African police and soldiers, and 12,000 Mau Mau rebels were killed. Between 1953 and 1956 Britain sent over a thousand Kenyans to the gallows, often on trumped up or non-existent charges. Meanwhile 70,000 people were imprisoned in camps without trial for between two and six years. David Anderson provides a full and convincing account of a war in which all sides behaved badly, and therefore few of the combatants can be either fully excused, or blamed. These events are still within living memory, and eye-witness testimonies provide the backbone of this controversial story.
