“You are not human or one of us.” I broke the silence. “What are you?” I wanted to know. Her smell was very strange, lingering softly in the air. I couldn’t put my finger on it. It was like a sweet herb with a hint of something spicy. It pulled me in, triggering in me a hidden desire to know more about this girl. She shifted uncomfortably in her seat and balled her little gloved hands into fists. When the mysterious woman arrives at Grey Moon, an elusive werewolf pack hidden deep in the mountains, neither she nor the Alpha and his pack could have anticipated the adventures that fate had in store.

This book comes from personal experience, both as a long time timeshare owner and from selling vacation ownership. What prompted this book? Well, for too many years I have listened to too many people whom, for whatever reasons have a negative impression about the timeshare or vacation ownership industry. As an owner I inevitably found myself asking them why. The reasons varied from "they do not work" to "we cannot afford it." For those folks this book will open your eyes. The second reason was for all those owners who honestly do not have a clue as to what they own. I wanted to let people understand something that they did not already know or have simply forgotten. Having been a timeshare owner for over twenty-five years I understand, and have experienced, the public perception of the industry. I have also seen it change dramatically during that time. However, it was during my first few years in Mexico when I sold timeshare that I came to understand, and appreciate, the real public perception of the industry. From these experiences I realized that the industry could use a simple "how to" and "why" book. The book is written in a simple, straight forward manner that is easy to understand. The book covers the history, marketplace, the players, the IN's and Out's of attending a sales presentation, of buying one -- good and bad, legislation and much more. A quick, easy read it contains personal stories and antidotes, and easy, self awareness quizzes for you to do. By the end you will know whether or not timeshare is right for your lifestyle.

Science, birds, Billy the Kid, and lots of feathers surround The Feather Room, Anis Mojgani’s follow up to his Pushcart-nominated work, Over the Anvil We Stretch. In The Feather Room, Mojgani further explores storytelling in poetic form while traveling farther down the path of magic realism, endowing his tales with a greater sense of fantasy and brightness. The work recounts loss and heartbreak while discovering lightness and beauty on the other side. Throughout the book, Mojgani opens tree trunks to reveal chandeliers. He leads us through the rooms inside himself, using poems to part curtains and paint walls. He is lifting windows to let the fantasy indoors. Anis Mojgani, Andrea Gibson, you and other young poets of their talent are the future of American poetry and frankly, that fills me with joy! --Thomas Lux, Guggenheim Fellow & recipient of the Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award for his book Split Horizons Mojgani is not your typical national poetry slam champion...The playfulness, startling originality, and lyric optimism are all gravy. He's simply the best there is right now. -Taylor Mali, “The Last Time As We Are" Anis shook the dust off me and everyone else in the audience with the beauty of his words. -Saul Williams, “Said the Shotgun to the Head”

Developing Creative Talent in Art is a guide for parents, teachers and others interested in developing creative art talent of young people. Visual art has its own language system by which the artist communicates to others thoughts, ideas and feelings about the world as they see them. First experienced as images and then codified in art language form, information about the world in this dual form is processed by creative imagination to produce original art works. Both the language of visual art and creative processing techniques are presented by example and instructional application so that students can compose art not only intuitively but also at will. The book is based on the assumptions that: (1) being able to recognize and know how to identify creative individuals with special talent in art, guidance can be given to maximize the achievement of their potential; (2) understanding creative imagination as process and skill will provide tools to talented individuals for their development in art; (3) mental images constitute the earliest informational source prior to their symbolization in one language form or another; (4) visual art has its own language, derived at first from mental imagery, and just as someone learns and uses the language of words, the artist learns and uses the language of art in productive expression; (5) individuals can be taught to use creative imagination to process all kinds of information and its art language-imagery correlates to produce original works; and (6) feedback in terms of appraisal of student art is essential to foster and guide developing art talent. We provide information about the nature of creativity and talent approaches to identify individuals possessing these potentials generally and art specifically, the nature of creative imagination and its significance and relevance in art imagery as the language of discovery, and the language of art design as order and composition in art, creative imagination as process and teachable skills, instruction in how they may be used to produce art works with relevant practical exercises, the nature of color and its role in art production, and approaches that can be used to evaluate student art.

This collection of Vietnamese mythology will be of great interest to cultural scholars as well as people of Vietnamese descent. The history of every country is reflected in its myths and legends and this absorbing collection of thirty-two stories vary from the sweep and grandeur of past battles, to the wit of parables. While a number of Chinese fables have absorbed into the folk-lore of Vietnam, The story of Tam and Cam' is the Vietnamese version of a Chinese Cinderella story. Most of these tales are indigenous to the Vietnamese. But whether imported or Vietnam originals, all of these stories contain an Oriental charm and logic that will intrigue the modern reader. These range from lengthy legend 'Trach Sanh,' to ‘Statesman Ly,' a remarkable comment from the past, illustrating the situation today. Many of these stories reflect the fierce respect Vietnamese hold for honor. Filial and conjugal love, devotion to one's friends, are constant themes characteristic of the Vietnamese people. Particularly noteworthy is the author's success in retaining this atmosphere in translation. These stories vividly portray a Vietnamese way of thinking that make a book of rare appeal to the western reader.

Have you ever had an ache or pain, and wished your body could talk to you and tell you what was wrong? You're not alone! Master storyteller Nancy Mellon, author of Body Eloquence, has guided scores of people through the process of giving their bodies a voice. Drawing from mythology, medicine, biology and energetic healing, she finds the essential stories that characterize each organ of the human body, and trains us how to use these resources to identify the messages that our organs are communicating to us. The heart, for instance, is not just a durable pump, sending oxygenated blood to every cell. It's also a representation of goodwill; a heart-to-heart connection, or an open-hearted friend, are universal stories we can all identify. But a hard-hearted person is one we all avoid. These archetypes are found in mythologies from Native American traditions to Scandinavian tribes to Greek history, and are woven together in a fascinating matrix in Body Eloquence, showing how our organs are part of our psyche, our history, and our collective mythology.

When the first colonists arrived in what would become the United States, they confronted the reality that in order to survive, they would have to tame the land and make it work for them. In addition to these early settlers were those brought to North America against their will-enslaved Africans who were forced to toil in intolerable conditions. From these beginnings developed the fabled Puritan work ethic that has become the standard for Americans in the workplace-a standard that has both proponents and opponents. The agrarian economy of the early United States was eventually transformed by the Industrial Revolution. Amid the new reality of mass-production, workers organized-demanding better wages, safer working environments, and an end to child labor. The unique challenges that African-American and female employees faced spawned separate movements that are still relevant in a less-than-equal workplace. The future direction of working in America is complicated, as technological innovation and globalization drastically transform both working conditions and the composition of the American workforce. Each chapter in Working in America, a volume in Facts On File's new American Experience series, begins with an essay that chronicles the experience of workers in the United States. A chronology of events follows this essay. Each chapter closes with a section of excerpts-from such sources as speeches, journals, correspondence, and book passages. Included in this book are the words of Thomas Jefferson, Malcolm X, Samuel Gompers, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Jesse Jackson, Cesar Chavez, Jane Addams, and countless others. An appendix of documents includes such primary source materials as the Land Ordinance of 1785, the Sherman Anti-Trust Act, and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Also included are capsule biographies of 141 key figures, maps, graphs and tables, a glossary, notes, a bibliography, and an index. More than 100 black-and-white images illustrate the story of the workers whose contributions have helped shape the United States.

From earliest childhood Heather Valencia had vivid, precognitive dreams. In one of them, she would travel to a pre-Columbian world to join a mysterious, powerful spiritual leader. When she grew older, Heather married and raised a son, but her dreams continued and she found herself increasingly drawn to the desert of southern Arizona. Finally she decided to travel there, particularly to witness the colorful and famous Easter deer dance ceremony, and when she did, she met the mysterious figure of her dreams. This is the true story of Heather Valencia's journey to Yaqui, and her experiences with Anselmo Valencia, the spiritual leader of the Yaqui people and Heather's future husband. Heather describes her passionate love affair with Anselmo, her discovery of the rich Yaqui spiritual tradition under Amselmo's guidance, her otherworldly spiritual explorations, and her mystical activities with the powerful circle of Dreaming Women.
