The ultimate in wilderness travel in western Canada This is the story of the author's travels and wildlife observations in all seasons of the year accompanied by his sometimes radical thoughts on wildlife preservation. Driven by a deep, personal sense of curiosity, he paddled hundreds of miles down swift Yukon rivers, the Peace River in northwestern Alberta and several remote lake systems in northern Saskatchewan in pursuit of his studies which focus on the intertwined lives of prey and predators. From its beginnings, the narrative flows like a clear, untouched wilderness stream, with lively riffles and quiet pools that give pause for reflection and perspective.

THE SAVAGE WARS OF PEACE by Darcy Vernier SYNOPSIS Jake Brabston was a Marine helicopter pilot in Afghanistan. On a recon mission he was shot down and was the only survivor. Two days in the rugged countryside, including one as a POW, have left him haunted and peripatetic. Were he in a western novel he would be called a “drifter.” Years later while working in a French Quarter strip club, he is recruited by his old commanding officer, Walt Macbeth, a man with many years in Africa, but unknown priorities. With nothing to keep him in New Orleans, and the belief that there are no bad flying jobs, Jake is off to the Sudan. When he accepted Macbeth's offer he said that he just wanted to fly: "No do-gooder stuff." Tamsin Amidon is an idealistic relief worker, dedicated to her work. She is beautiful, smart, sexy, and, normally, uninterested in any kind of commitment to anything but her job. She is the quintessential "do-gooder." In many ways it is her story as much as it is Jake’s. While in Mombassa the two of them meet and fall, if not in love, certainly in lust. The longer they are together, Jake's demons fall away and he understands more and more of the basis for Tamsin's selfless dedication, and how empty his life has been. Bit by bit, he learns that it may be possible to achieve a balance, to even out the scale of lives lost, with lives saved. Tamsin teaches him to take “the small victories.” Together, the two of them share a number of adventures, which reflect the turbulent, dangerous part of the world in which they're working. Friends are murdered by rampaging mohajadeen; the evacuation of a hospital is interrupted by government MiG fighters. Finally, while escorting a UN food barge headed up the Nile, Tamsin is kidnapped by government soldiers. She and two other relief workers witness the massacre of hundreds of Dinka families, an event which actually occurred in 1986. The others are killed and Tamsin is raped, brutalized, and left for dead. When Jake hears of the barge hijacking, he immediately tries to learn what happened, but is told by Macbeth to “mourn appropriately and get on with your life.” It seems that there was more than food items on the barge, and Macbeth and whoever he is working for, were in the middle of it. Ignoring Macbeth’s directive, Jake finds and rescues Tamsin. He gets her back to the aircraft, but, as they are flying to safety, she asks him to go back for a group of women and children who would surely be killed by the soldiers. Knowing the risks but knowing that he must take them, Jake lands and loads the women and children. As they make their escape, a Sudanese soldier fires a Stinger missile that cripples their aircraft and kills Tamsin. Jake flies on, alone, across the Sudan, towards safety.

Teaching Special Education ought to be an immensely rewarding career, but more often than not it's just the opposite. Despite the fact that nationwide the median pay for a Special Ed. teacher is comparable to that of a police officer's, well over half of new Special Ed. teachers quit within three years. Why is that so? The answer isn't all that complicated. Some get burnt out, but the vast majority get driven out. Once you fail as a Special Ed. teacher, it's hard to get back up again and move on. Not only is your reputation shattered, but your confidence may be completely destroyed. The author spent 20 years in what he calls ""the snake pit"" and, as any good journalist would do, he documented everything that happened. Before you even THINK of becoming a Special Ed. teacher, or if you have a child in a Special Ed. program, you need to read this book.

"Robert F. Martin demonstrates nicely that, beneath all of Billy Sunday's flamboyance, the orphan-turned-baseball player-turned-evangelist embodied the tensions of his age. Martin's prodigious research has yielded a wealth of anecdotal material that adds flavor and spice to his keen analysis." -- Randall Balmer, author of Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory: A Journey into the Evangelical Subculture in America William Ashley "Billy" Sunday was the most popular and influential evangelist of his time. Between 1896 and 1935, the colorful Iowa-born evangelist toured first his native Midwest and then the nation, preaching in tent and tabernacle, espousing a simplistic but, for many, deeply satisfying interpretation of Christianity. Embodying the traditional values and attitudes of the heartland and at home in an increasingly diverse, urban, industrial America, Sunday won the hearts -- and the pocketbooks -- of millions of Americans. Hero of the Heartland is an interpretive biography that focuses on the ways in which the man and his career resonated with the hopes and fears of his contemporaries as they coped with the economic, social, and cultural changes around the start of the 20th century. Robert F. Martin shows how Sunday and his revivalism helped his followers bridge the gap between the traditional past and the progressive future, and made more comfortable the transition from the old order to the new.
