In 1980 seven-year-old Sabine Kuegler and her family went to live in a remote jungle area of West Papua among the recently discovered Fayu - a tribe untouched by modern civilisation. Her childhood was spent hunting, shooting poisonous spiders with arrows and chewing on pieces of bat-wing in place of gum. She also learns how brutal nature can be - and sees the effect of war and hatred on tribal peoples. After the death of her Fayu-brother, Ohri, Sabine decides to leave the jungle and, aged seventeen, she goes to a boarding school in Switzerland - a traumatic change for a girl who acts and feels like one of the Fayu. 'Fear is something I learnt here' she says. 'In the Lost Valley, with a lost tribe, I was happy. In the rest of the world it was I who was lost.' Here is Sabine Kuegler's remarkable true story of a childhood lived out in the Indonesian jungle, and the struggle to conform to European society that followed.

Was uns unvorstellbar erscheint – Sabine Kuegler hat es erlebt: Als Tochter deutscher Forscher verbrachte sie ihre Kindheit mitten im Dschungel von West-Papua, bei einem vergessenen Stamm von Kannibalen. Bis sie siebzehn war, kannte sie keine Autos, kein Fernsehen und keine Geschäfte. Sie spielte nicht mit Puppen, sondern schwamm mit Krokodilen im Fluss – und erlebte schon früh die alten Rituale des Tötens. Die Natur war ihr Spielplatz, der Dschungel ihre Heimat, der Himmel ihr Dach. Dschungelkind von Sabine Kuegler im eBook!

Der berühmte Autor des «Dschungelbuchs», Rudyard Kipling, hat diese Tiergeschichten ursprünglich seinen Kindern Josephine, Elsie und John zum Einschlafen erzählt, bevor sie dann 1902 unter dem Titel «Just So Stories For Little Children» in London erschienen. «Just so» im Sinne von «genauso (und nicht anders)», weil seine Tochter Josephine wieder gänzlich wach zu werden drohte, wenn er etwas wegließ. Auf originelle und ironische Weise werden kindliche Warum-Fragen zum Ausgangspunkt für die abenteuerlichsten Erklärungen, wie etwa das Kamel zu seinem Höcker kam, warum der Elefant so einen langen Rüssel hat und wie das Alphabet entstand. Kipling, auch ein begabter Zeichner, steuerte zu der Buchausgabe auch eigene Illustrationen bei. Unsere Ausgabe folgt der ersten deutschen Übersetzung unter dem Titel «Nur so Märchen» aus dem Jahre 1903 von Sebastian Harms.

Giannetti and Sagarese have honed in on this little-understood phenomenon and come up with insights that parents can use immediately. Read Cliques to understand: * Who the clique leaders are in your child's school * What you can do NOW to help your child avoid abuse * Times during the day when cliques are visible to adults * Where in your school you should start to lobby for change * Why your "innocent bystander" may not be so innocent * How you can rid your child of bully-like behavior Cliques is more than just a manual for cheering your child on--it brings hope and a truly comprehensive understanding of adolescent society to the millions of families struggling against this divisive force.

In 1962, Don and Carol Richardson risked their lives to share the gospel with the Sawi people of New Guinea. Peace Child told their unforgettable story of living among these headhunting cannibals who valued treachery through ''fattening'' victims with friendship before the slaughter. God gave Don and Carol the key to the Sawi hearts via a redemptive analogy from their own mythology. The ''peace child'' became the secret to unlocking a value system that existed through generations over centuries, possibly millenniums, of time. This new edition of Peace Child will inspire a new generation of readers who need to hear this unforgettable story and the lessons it teaches us about communicating Christ in a meaningful way to those around us.
