What do the pyramids of Egypt really represent? What could have driven so many to so great, and often so dangerous, an effort? Was the motivation religious or practical? Illustrated with more than 300 photographs and drawings, this book presents an original approach to the subject of pyramid building. It reveals the connection between devices that served both a practical need for survival and a spiritual belief in gods and goddesses. It examines Egyptian technologies and techniques from the origins of pyramid development to the step-by-step details of how the ground was leveled, how the site was oriented, and how the stone was raised and placed to meet at a distant point in the sky. Here the author also asks and answers questions virtually ignored for the last century. He discloses, for example, the ancient use of shadows, now denigrated to the ornamental back-yard sundial, but once an important tool for telling the height of an object, geographical directions, the seasons of the year, and the time of day. He also reinterprets the ancient "stretching of the cord" ceremony, which once was thought to have only religious significance but here is shown as the means of establishing the sides of a pyramid.

The author's parents come from respectable stock, God-honoring, community-centered and self-made. When her father Arthur Corey goes off the deep end of religion to become an itinerate preacher, his relatives don't understand. Nor does Margaret his wife, nor does her extended family--at least for a time. The story is told in three parts: Chronicle One begins in 1937 with Arthur's purchase of an abandoned grange hall that becomes the Grange House into which babies, including the author, are after another, after another. The children grow up within the shadow of a father's strong character and unpredictable style, and under the tutelage of their faithful mother, all the while living without electricity next to an outhouse where catalogs are used instead of toilet paper. This clan becomes skilled in facing challenges with grit, in adapting throwaways into tools, and in building experiences into strengths. Chronicle Two is the author's first-person story beginning with her earliest memory. The memory of taking apart the Grange House, while living in it, and carrying it down the highway piece by piece to build a barn-like temporary shack that becomes the Farmhouse. During the next twelve years, the family grows by two more babies, some in-laws, and multiple foster children. All the while working toward the day that: We finally have a real house. Chronicle Three brings the entire clan together for the first time in 27 years at a family reunion--a time of re-acquaintance, restoration, and renewal.

Get back to basics with Indoor and outdoor activities for young people aged 10-14 years Good play opportunities give children the chance to explore, examine, experiment and think whilst they are having fun. Sticks and Stones offers a range of exciting ideas for challenging play activities which enhance young people's play - indoors and outdoors. The book has been written so that adults can develop the activities with young people or young people can use the book for ideas to develop themselves. All the activities have been successfully tried and tested with young people aged 10-14 in various settings and we have found that the activities often open young people's imaginations to explore these and related ideas further in their own way. The activities in Sticks and Stones: · are fun · mostly require minimal planning and preparation · are fully illustrated · describe what you need, how you can do it and where it can lead · can be used to develop valuable skills from fire lighting to using tools safely · contain practical tips and flag health and safety points · provide opportunities for young people to develop, play and learn at their own pace · include 'snapshots' of how other groups have experienced the activity · include 'spotlights' to support adults in thinking about their approach to working with young people in a play or childcare setting. This book is part of the Can Do Series, an essential resource for all those who work with children from birth to 14 years in out of school settings including: · childcare centres · drop-in centres · after-school clubs · playschemes or playbuses · play centres · family centres · in the home

Steef's world is tranquil and Steef. Waterspills and flutterbyes. Wondrous beasties, magical bees and one amazing tree. His five Masters have contrived that peace for him at great risk. The world they know is growing dark. Politics and intrigue rule. Reality is defined by the Guilds, whose purpose once was to serve, but who now serve only themselves. The Guilds would destroy the child if they could, for Steef possesses an unheard of ability to wield all seven Powers. If he reaches manhood, the Guilds will be his. Steef's only defense is secrecy, and the only secret place left is a remote valley ruled by the long neglected HornCats. The HornCats are truly noble beasts, unfortunately all other creatures to them are...tasty. To his Masters, Steef is even more frightening. Eager. Warm. Relentlessly curious. A perfect little boy...who can kill with a sneeze. Yet they must train him! The valley will not be tranquil for the Masters. If they succeed in maintaining their confidentiality, survive the HornCats and keep Steef from blowing himself up, then Steef might reach his eighteenth birthday. And he just might want to come out of that valley.
