For decades, as the monarch butterflies swooped through every year like clockwork, people from Canada to the United States to Mexico wondered, "Where do they go?" In 1976 the world learned the answer: after migrating thousands of miles, the monarchs roost by the millions in an oyamel grove in Central Mexico's mountains. But who solved this mystery? Was it the scientist or the American adventurer? The citizen scientists or the teacher or his students? Winged Wonders shows that the mystery could only be solved when they all worked as a team--and reminds readers that there's another monarch mystery today, one that we all must work together to solve.

Monarchs are a favorite and familiar North American butterfly, and their incredible annual migration has captured the popular imagination for generations. As populations of monarchs decline dramatically due to habitat loss and climate change, the general public’s interest in and enthusiasm for protecting these beloved pollinators has skyrocketed. Through accessible text and colorful, engaging illustrations, Monarch Butterflies presents rich, detailed information about the monarchs’ life cycle, anatomy, and the wonders of their signature migration, as well as how to raise monarchs at home and the cultural significance of monarchs in Day of the Dead celebrations. The book broaches how human behavior has harmed monarchs and offers substantive ways for kids to help make a positive difference. Solution-oriented ideas include converting lawns into native plant gardens, citizen science efforts such as tagging migrating monarchs and participating in population counts, and supporting organizations that work to conserve butterflies.

Alfred Colo, a former singer-songwriter, has immersed himself in full-blown poetry from creative love lyrics he honed his craft on when he realized that his passion for words lay beyond mere expressions of amour. His initial attempt at self-publishing with Xlibris Corporation in 2008 is a nature-lover’s view in poetry through the four seasons entitled Inside Looking Out. Reluctant at first, not offering too much material at once for reasons both pragmatic and artistic, he later ventured to expand his theme with residual material not included in his first book on four seasons alone. As his appetite grew, he knew that there was more he had to say in his accumulated poetry since 1984, which begged inclusion of more poems on the related twelve months of a year beyond the four seasons. After years of creative writing, learning and perfecting his art, he felt it was worthy enough and the right time to make public what eventually has become this collection. He trusts that his reading followers will concur that it was indeed worth the effort to have written a “companion book” to its predecessor, Inside Looking Out. Alfred lives in New Fairfield, Connecticut, after compelling circumstances led him here to exit the Big Apple. Including this one, he has authored twelve books pictured with others to follow. An active octogenarian, Alfred pursues his prolific outpourings on a variety of subjects at a still-going-like-sixty white-heat rate. See if you can keep pace with a poet determined to make a mark and to leave a legacy to be proud of. He captures the spirit of his works by suggesting wholly or in part what the cover design will look like on both front and back.

Ever since the caveman gazed longingly at the winged creatures above him, mankind has been enamored with the idea of flight—of just taking off and soaring away. Steven A. Ruffin celebrates that spirit, that sense of wonder, with Aviation’s Most Wanted™: The Top 10 Book of Winged Wonders, Lucky Landings, and Other Aerial Oddities. With dozens of top-ten lists focusing on notable flights, memorable planes, famous and infamous aviators, aircraft combat, air travel—even space travel—and so much more, Ruffin provides a treasure trove of fun facts and amazing anecdotes celebrating the world’s love affair with flight, plus the hurt that accompanies any deep love. Will Rogers died in a plane crash near Point Barrow, Alaska, with aviation legend Wiley Post at the controls. Rogers was writing an article at the time of the crash; eerily, the last word he typed was “death.” Isoroku Yamamoto, who masterminded the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, met his fate in similarly sneaky fashion. U.S. forces intercepted and decoded information on Yamamoto’s travel plans and “Pearl Harbored” his plane, shooting it down into the island jungle of Bougainville. The safest seat in a crash depends on if you crash on takeoff or on landing—so flip a coin! You’ll read about the first and worst of flight, aces and races, and everything from crimes, sex, and controversy to planes so fast they can outrun the sun. With Aviation’s Most Wanted™ you’ll get the history of flight from the early balloon adventures of the eighteenth century until the present, laid out with trivia and tales to amuse and amaze!

The odds are more than forty percent that cancer will touch your life. Including families, cancer affects almost four million people per year. There are few common medical realities surrounded by as much malefaction, mystique, and misunderstanding as cancer. In When Tumor Is the Rumor and Cancer Is the Answer, author Dr. Kevin P. Ryan helps you see past the macabre mythology. Stressing patient autonomy and the need to build an Oncology team, Dr. Ryan addresses the need for knowledge when receiving the overwhelming news that you may or do have cancer. He covers not just the fear of the diagnosis and certain aspects of the journey of care, but also discusses the entire trek from when the tumor is suspected and cancer is diagnosed. He talks about ethics of cancer care, challenges of managed care, psychosocial issues, ethical and legal components, and end-of-life issues and spirituality. Dr. Ryan also touches on difficult concepts such as physician-assisted suicide, durable power of attorney, living wills, failure to diagnose, treatments and staging, lost opportunities in life, euthanasia, and how death by secondary intent has led to cancer cases being second in frequency of lawsuits. A common-sense, straight-talking guide, When Tumor Is the Rumor and Cancer Is the Answer provides answers to many questions in order to reduce anxiety and help those confronted with this disease to marshal their internal resources, conquer their natural fears, and ultimately learn to become cancer survivors.
