Ecowarriors

Title: The Ecowarriors Author: Sandra Dreis Publisher: iUniverse Pages: 190 Genre: Action Adventure Format: Ebook

On rare occasions, a writer makes a first appearance on the literature scene and the reader feels the excitement of meeting a new friend. In her debut novel, The Ecowarriors, Sandra Dreis creates young characters with voices that ring true and a story that is perfectly timed to entertain. Setting the fantasy against the background of the all-too-real problem of fracking is nothing short of brilliant. —Leigh Somerville, Author, It All Started with a Dog (trilogy, Second Wind Publishing) Davie Wyatt, born into a family of scientists, is forced to imagine a world without Wisconsin. Uncontrolled sand mining is taking over the state, threatening to destroy the land's natural beauty. Two badgers, leaders of a royal underground dynasty, choose Davie and his buddies—Carl, Sharon, and Melissa—for a vital mission. With the powers given to them by the badgers, the four youths must defeat an evil force that will rise from Devil's Lake on the eve of the Winter Solstice . Suddenly, vacation plans morph from the ordinary to the fantastic as the four experience a daring cross-country ski excursion, uncover clues from petroglyphs on a cave exploration, and survive a bizarre ice-fishing adventure. Will they be able to put these clues together in time? In the background, Grandpa John, a retired geologist, and his old friend, Avery, an Ojibwa storyteller, play important roles. As the young eco-warriors find themselves with the ability to fly, they face the enemy at Devil's Doorway, a landmark rock formation high up on the dangerous cliffs over the lake. Battling the forces of a giant sand monster, the teenagers will discover the truths that lie—not only below the surface of the Devil's Lake—but within themselves.

Reel Rebels

Title: Reel Rebels Author: Joy I. Payne Publisher: Authorhouse Pages: 294 Genre: Performing Art Format: Ebook

The London FilmMakers' Cooperative was founded in 1966 by a group of artists who sought to explore the possibilities of the moving image whilst maintaining autonomy over the production, distribution, and exhibition of their work. Although their films were not overtly political, artists nevertheless expressed their political attitudes by creating nonnarrative films, thereby rejecting conventional narrative structures associated with mainstream, commercial cinema, which they perceived as supporting the dominant ideology in society. A return to narrative in the 1980s coincided with the introduction of British Art Cinema and the art-house films of Derek Jarman, Peter Greenaway, and Sally Potter, all of whom made experimental films in the early days of the London Co-op.

Title: The Humanist Society Book Blast 
Author: Joseph Sassoon 
Publisher: iUniverse 
Pages: 174 
Genre: Social Science 
Format: Ebook
 

What accounts for the rise and fall of so many civilizations—especially when some of them held more political power than their rivals? Author Joseph Sassoon tackles this question and many others in this, his second volume on self-actualization. As a missionary for humanism, he explores the social conditions that are necessary for the greatest number of people to achieve self-actualization.

In presenting his theories, he reviews the work of major thinkers, including Kurt Goldstein and his landmark book, Human Nature in the Light of Psychopathology; Charles Darwin; Buddha; and many others.

Sassoon explores the answers to key questions:
• What is society’s role in helping individuals move toward self-actualization?
• What benefits would society enjoy if more people achieved their potential?
• What are the main characteristics of a humanist code?
• What can we do to promote humanist values?

A third volume in this series will establish the conditions required to bring about a world federalism based on humanism. In a changing world with competing ideologies, it is more important than ever to establish the importance of humanist values. In this study, Sassoon describes a step-by-step social arrangement leading to self-actualization for the greatest number of people in society.

The Berkshire Jack Russells

Title: The Berkshire Jack Russells

Author: Eileen Chatwin

Publisher: Authorhouse

Pages: 108

Genre: Memoir

Format: Ebook

This is a true story about two Jack Russell's who lived in Berskhire with my me and my children. They truly had a wonderful life and I think you should read about them, what they got up to and they places they visited. When you hear other people saying it's a dogs life, they mean that they think that dogs have an easy life. Well that is not true as they are always guarding their owners as well as trying to enjoy themselves. They also met some interesting animals during their travels so why not read about them.

ORDER INFORMATION

The Berkshire Jack Russells is available for order at

amazon

Meet the Author:

Having been the owner and lived with these two Jack Russells, Gabby and Boni, all their lives, l thought there was a story to be told about them as they were the most loyal and fun loving dogs you could wish to have owned. They were mother and daughter, as we had two litters of puppies, but we did not keep any from the second litter as we thought two dogs were enough in a house. We took them everywhere we travelled both in England and abroad, and wherever we lived they were constantly on guard for our personal safety whether that be out walking on a lead or in bed when they were guarding the house. When they died, almost within a year of each other, we realized what a difference they had made in our lives as a family. They were missed almost every day, you had got so used to them bouding around the house. My grown up daughter's have families of their own now and are going to have some Jack Russells very soon of their own for their children. My late husband would love to have known that a book had been written about our two dogs as he thought they were great. Gabby was born in June 1976 and died in September 1992 and Boni was born in May 1978 and died in October 1993. I live in the County of Berkshire in England where there are a lot of Stud Farms that breed Jack Russells so you see a lot of them around. I do creative writing as a hobby now that I am retired and thought how delighted my late husband and of course my own children would be if I wrote about the dogs we had. I am a widow and live on my own but have plenty of good memories to keep me going. My grandchiildren are always asking for stories about the dogs that their mum's had and of course I always oblige. Happy Days.
