What do wild animals mean to humans? Will they survive both rampant habitat loss and extinction caused by human encroachment and, as ecotourists, our enthusiasm for them? With ecotourism now the fastest growing segment of tourism, and encounters with wild animals - be it swimming with dolphins, going on safari or bird watching - ever more popular, these are critical questions. Yet until now little has been known about why people crave encounters with wild animals and the meaning for the ecotourism industry, conservation efforts and society at large. Facing the Wild is the first serious empirical examination of why people seek out animals in their natural environment, what the desire for this experience tells us about the meanings of animals, nature, authenticity and wilderness in contemporary industrialized societies, and whether visitors change their environmental perspectives and behaviour, as the custodians of wildlife parks would like them to. The book explores the contradictions and ambivalence that so many people experience in the presence of 'wild nature' - in loving it we may diminish it and in the act of wanting to see it we may destroy it. Ultimately the book makes a case for 'respectful stewardship' of a 'hybrid nature' and provides insight for both practitioners and ecotourists alike.

From the bestselling author of the Iron Tower trilogy and The Silver Call duology comes the magnificent epic of Mithgar... A thousand years had passed since the Eye of the Hunter last glared in the heavens. A thousand years since the immortal Elfess Riatha brought word of the prophecy to the Warrows Tomlin and Petal with whom she had leagued to hunt down and defeat Baron Stoke, one of the most evil beings to ever stalk the lands of Mithgar. The price of Stoke’s doom had been a beloved companion’s life, the two plunging, locked in combat, down an icy chasm which had sealed shut the ring of eternity. Now the comet known as the Eye of the Hunter again rode Mithgar’s skies, and the creatures of darkness once again ravaged the lands, heralding the imminent return of their dread mster, Baron Stoke. And now five brave souls must answer the call of prophecy: Riatha and the elf called Aravan; Gwylly and Faeril, last in a long line of Firstborn Warrow descendants of Tomlin and Petal; and one other, one restored to them from Death’s chill grasp.

How can we obtain creative spiritual energies to meet the challenges in life we all face? The bible has the answer. Using St. Paul's metaphor of the "Eyes of the Heart" in his letter to the Ephesians as a psycho-spiritual approach to the study of spirituality, the author unraveled the spirituality of St. Paul, St. Peter and St. James in the New Testament and that of King Saul, King David and the prophet Jonah in the Old Testament. The study showed how the success and failures of these men were intimately related to how they handled the challenges of the psycho-spiritual themes in their lives. The spirituality of these men further reminds us to pay attention to our own spirituality. They served to emphasize the critical importance of maintaining a continual spiritual relationship with Christ as the path to a powerful, rich and effective Christian spiritual life. Albert C. Gaw, MD, is a board-certified practicing Christian psychiatrist, an author, a clinical professor of psychiatry at UCSF and the Medical Director of Quality Management for San Francisco's Community Behavioral Health Services. He is an advocate of holistic and integrated living and medical healing, and for the integration of culture, spirituality and psychiatry. Dr. Gaw lives in San Francisco with his wife, Tina, a psychotherapist. Their daughter, Julie, is a film producer.
The Call of the Wild is a novel by Jack London published in 1903. The story is set in the Yukon during the 1890s Klondike Gold Rush—a period when strong sled dogs were in high demand. The novel's central character is a dog named Buck, a domesticated dog living at a ranch in California as the story opens. Stolen from his home and sold into the brutal existence of an Alaskan sled dog, he reverts to atavistic traits. Buck is forced to adjust to, and survive, cruel treatments and fight to dominate other dogs in a harsh climate. Eventually he sheds the veneer of civilization, relying on primordial instincts and lessons he learns, to emerge as a leader in the wild.

There is much more to be had in knowing Christ as our Saviour. Have we given Him all of us; our time, our talents, our days. There is so much more we can do for Him.

This is the true story of a little child called Patrick, who was one of five little brothers that came through, what seemed like a strange world full of bombs dropping, causing big fires and total destruction on a massive scale, every morning I would wake up to see new Wendy houses to play in not realizing someone lived there the day before, and the houses were still burning it was nice and warm, food was so scarce it was rationed so much so we had a plot of land where the family tried to grow our own food, sweets and fruit I did not see until I was 14yrs old, as for toys well you just made your own if you could, what the war failed to do was any damage to Manchester folks wicked sense of humour, thats why to me they will always be the salt of the earth and I should know I am one of them. There is an old saying, you can take the child out of Manchester, but you will never take Manchester out of the child. The best way to give you an understanding about the war is this, if you can imagine that almost every single nation on this planet was involved in the fighting for 6 long years, with the exception of Spain Switzerland & Sweden who were neutral.
