Her parents are long gone, her best friend is a werewolf, and she?s just learned that the blood flowing through her veins isn?t entirely human. (So what else is new?) Now Dru is stuck at a secret New England Schola for other teens like her, and there?s a big problem? she?s the only girl in the place. A school full of cute boys wouldn?t be so bad, but Dru?s killer instinct says that one of them wants her dead. And with all eyes on her, discovering a traitor within the Order could mean a lot more than social suicide. . .

It has been rightly said that a healthy body is the guest chamber of soul and a sick one its prison. No doubt, with significant advances in Medical Science and gaining control over infectious diseases, the human lifespan has increased; but equally true is another aspect that the fast life of today has caused greater stress and strain thereby resulting in various diseases and health disorders. The present book is a detailed study of various health problems ranging from heart attack, hypertension, diabetes, obesity, gout and many others. It aims to develop awareness among readers about the basic nature of disease and to suggest preventive measures so that one may live a healthy life and enjoy it. To maintain a healthy body one must not only follow the rules of moderate healthy living but also essentially have a proper understanding of health as well as sickness. In this respect, the present book will serve as an invaluable guide to readers. All information on health has been provided in a simple and concise manner, so as to make the book easily accessible to the average readers. The book, needless to mention, will be found useful and highly informative by the students of Medicine—be it Allopathy, Homeopathy or Ayurvedic—in addition to the general readers1.

Near Fine/Near Fine. A highly collectible first edition protected in a new brodart wrapper, not price clipped, an ex-lib or book club edition, no markings throughout. From the author of THE FOWLER FAMILY BUSINESS comes a reissue of his infamous, intensely distilled epic, POMPEY. This novel recounts scores of stories: of HoTLoVe, OMO, AO-1; of a pygmy hunt, an assassination, a crucifixion; of a human blood bank and a man with metal in his head and a dentist with nasty habits; of sick sex, ill winds, malignant diseases; of the Voys, the Halals, the Puppymen. Most of all it tells the story of a flaky pyrotechnicist, Guy Vallender, and of his four progeny, chief among them Poor Eddie, who was quarry, whose gifts were otherwordly, whose gruesome fate was perhaps transcendent. The action stretches seamlessly between the mid 40s and the mid 70s; its many topographies include Brussels, Salisbury, the Teutoburgerwald, the Congo, the industrial wastes of Lorraine. But the dominant setting is the titular city -- a nightmarish brick grid set on mud a populated by garish freaks. It is here that the characters move to their unique and inexorable ends, fuelled by the bad faith of the former comedian Ray Butt's Church Of The Best Ever Redemption and by the bad blood of the gerontophiliac Jean-Marie. POMPEY is a witty, gripping, emotionally harrowing work by our most viciously inventive writer -- part hallucinatory adventure, part unhappy family saga, part perverse tragedy of the fundamentalist delusion, it is persistently, hurtfully entertaining., CAPE, JONATHAN, 1993, University of Nevada Press, Reno: 2013. Softcover. Brand new book. In 1950, Velma Johnston, a shy Nevada ranch wife, came upon a horse trailer leaking blood. When she discovered the destination of the trailer and its occupantsÑa trio of terrified and badly injured wild horsesÑshe launched a crusade that eventually reached the halls of Congress and changed the way westerners regard and treat the bands of mustangs and burros that roam their region. Wild horses continue to be the subject of bitter controversy in the West. To some, they are symbols of the West's wild, free heritage; to others, they are rapacious grazers that destroy habitat and compete with domestic livestock and indigenous wildlife for scanty food and water. Velma Johnston, who became known as "Wild Horse Annie," undertook to stop the removal of wild horses and burros from US public lands and protect them from the worst aspects of mustanging. Her campaign attracted nationwide attention, as it led her from her rural Nevada County to state offices and finally to Washington, DC. Author Alan J. Kania worked closely with Johnston for seven years, and his biography provides unique insight into Wild Horse Annie's life and her efforts to save the West's wild horse herds through the passage of protective legislation. Alan J. Kania is a journalist and the author of John Otto: Trials and Trails and other books of Colorado history. He has taught journalism at Denver University and Metropolitan State College in Denver. "A warm, candid, and revealing look . . . both moving and educational . . . the quality of scholarship and reliability of information is unsurpassed . . . it is not, however, a stuffy academic treatise. Wild Horse Annie is highly readable, tugs at the heart, and will often bring tears to readers' eyes." Oregon Historical Quarterly, Winter 2013 "A straightforward and indispensable account of one woman's extraordinary success, 40 years ago, in helping to protect America's wild horses from the human predators surrounding them. . . . The value of Kania's work, apart from his tender view of his subject, is that it shows us, relentlessly, how law can be and is subverted by political forces." -Andrew Cohen, The Atlantic "The book is well written and will be a fascinating read for those whose lives are affected by wild horses and burros." -Library Journal "The story of how Velma, snidely dubbed "Wild Horse Annie" by a government official, gathered supporters for the wild horses and got laws passed to provide for their humane treatment and protection, makes inspiring reading." -Booklist "Wild Horse Annie is a strongly recommended pick for collections focusing on American conservation history, not to be overlooked." -Midwest Book Review "As one of the few insiders from Velma Johnston's campaign to save America's mustangs, Alan J. Kania presents a thorough, deeply researched, and carefully crafted portrait of the woman without whom we would have no wild horses today. He also recounts the details of that hard-fought battle, making Wild Horse Annie an invaluable record of one of the great environmental wars of the twentieth century." -Deanne Stillman, author of Mustang: The Saga of the Wild Horse in the American West "Here is the real deal--a tale accurately and lovingly told by Alan Kania, who as a young man worked for Annie. Alan mirrored Annie's passion to save the American mustang. Together they created a path to protecting these iconic symbols of American freedom." -Ginger Kathrens, founder and director of the Cloud Foundation and creator of the popular Cloud, the Wild Stallion programs for PBS Nature series "The story of Wild Horse Annie, well conveyed by Alan J. Kania, is an important one given her cause and the issues and challenges she faced." -Mark Harvey, author of Wilderness Forever: Howard Zahniser and the Path to the Wilderness Act, University of Nevada Press, Reno: 2013, 2013. Hardcover. New. The book is an open-eyed journey through the mystic world of faith. It is an intellectually stimulating account of the birth of religions. As animals, for definite, have no religions and intelligence is the dividing line between man and animals, it should be amply clear that religions have risen out of the thinking faculty of man. These are about God and His creation all right, but not from God- though human brain itself is certainly a great gift of God. The writer has tried to visualize what might have actually happened on the ground in this spiritual area ages back and how it came to settle in human psyche as faith. The book traces the story of religions from the earliest times and tries to reach to the core of all major belief systems of the world. Towards the end, it draws a sort of balance-sheet of the religions to form a view what good and bad these have done to the humankind. An effort has also been made to have a peep into their future.

The subject of this book is RELIGION / PHILOSOPHY., 2013, Granta, 2016. Paperback. New. Lucien (Lucy) Minor is the resident odd duck in the bucolic hamlet of Bury. Friendless and loveless, young and aimless, he is a compulsive liar and a melancholy weakling. When Lucy accepts employment assisting the majordomo of the remote, forbidding castle of the Baron Von Aux he meets thieves, madmen, aristocrats, and a puppy. He also meets Klara, a delicate beauty who is, unfortunately, already involved with an exceptionally handsome partisan soldier. Thus begins a tale of polite theft, bitter heartbreak, domestic mystery and cold-blooded murder in which every aspect of human behaviour is laid bare for our hero to observe. Lucy must stay safe, and protect his puppy, because someone or something is roaming the corridors of the castle late at night. Undermajordomo Minor is a triumphant ink-black comedy of manners by the Man Booker shortlisted author of The Sisters Brothers . It is an adventure story, and a mystery, and a searing portrayal of rural Alpine bad behaviour with a brandy tart, but above all it is a love story. And Lucy must be careful, for love is a violent thing.SKU: MM-42075143; EAN: 9781847088727, Granta, 2016, Hachette Australia, 2017. Paperback. New. Lovers challenge destiny and risk their lives in the new CARPATHIAN novel by the #1 New York Times bestselling 'queen of paranormal romance.' (J.R. Ward) Gabrielle has had enough of battles, of wars, of seeing Gary Jansen, the man she loves nearly lose his life when it isn't even his fight. Once he was a gentle and very human researcher. Now he's a fearless and lethal Carpathian warrior with the blood of an ancient lineage coursing through his veins-a man Gabrielle still needs and desires and dreams of with every breath she takes. All she wants is a life far away from the Carpathian mountains, far from vampires and the shadows cast by the crumbling monastery that hides so many terrible secrets. But Gabrielle soon learns that promises made in the dark can pierce the heart like a dagger. And she isn't the only one in search of answers in the corners of the unknown.... Trixie Joanes has come to the Carpathian mountains in search of her wayward granddaughter, fearing that she has been lured there by something unspeakable. Instead, Trixie has stumbled into the path of a desperate man and a woman in love and on the run. And they're all fated for the lair of a mysterious ancient with revenge in his soul and the undying power to make bad dreams come true. 'After Bram Stoker, Anne Rice and Joss Whedon, Christine Feehan is the person most credited with popularizing the neck gripper.' Time 'Feehan has a knack for bringing vampiric Carpathians to vivid, virile life in her Dark Carpathian novels.'

Dependent on a shrinking supply of bamboo, hunted mercilessly for its pelt, and hostage to profiteering schemes once in captivity, the panda is on the brink of extinction. Here, acclaimed naturalist George Schaller uses his great evocative powers, and the insight gained by four and a half years in the forests of the Wolong and Tangjiahe panda reserves, to document the plight of these mysterious creatures and to awaken the human compassion urgently needed to save them. Includes an Index. "No scientist is better at letting the rest of us in on just how the natural world works; no poet sees the world with greater clarity or writes about it with more grace. . . . Anyone who genuinely cares for wildlife cannot help being grateful to SchallerÑboth for his efforts to understand the panda and for the candor with which he reports what has gone so badly wrong in the struggle to save it from extinction."ÑGeoffrey C. Ward, New York Times Book Review "Schaller's book is a unique mix of natural history and the politics of conservation, and it makes for compelling reading. . . . Having been in giant panda country myself, I found some of the descriptions of the animals and habitats breathtaking. Schaller describes the daily routines and personalities of the giant pandas he studied (as well as their fates thereafter) as though they were his blood relatives. . . . Schaller's brilliant presentation of the complexities of conservation makes his book a milestone for the conservation movement."ÑDevra G. Kleiman, Washington Post Book World "George Schaller's most soulful work, written in journal style with many asides about a creature who evolved only two to three million years ago (about the same time as humans). . . . Here, conservation biology confronts an evil that grinds against hope and shatters the planet's diversity. Written with hope."ÑWhole Earth Catalog "A nicely crafted blend of wildlife observation and political-cultural analysis. . . . The Last Panda is a sad chronicle of our failure, so far, to stem the decline of the animal that may be the most beloved on the planet."ÑDonald Dale Jackson, Smithsonian ISBN: 0226736288., The University of Chicago Press, Chicago: 1993

Sacred, mysterious, powerful, the Blue Nile has carved a deep channel through human history. From its source in the wild Ethiopian highlands, this river passes through some of the most untamed country on Earth as it rushes toward its desert rendezvous with the White Nile in Sudan. More than one adventurer has perished in the Blue Nile Corge, whose hazards range from raging rapids to menacing crocodiles to armed bandits. When National Geographic invited Virginia Morell to join its 1999 expedition -- which hoped to be the first to descend the river in a single, uninterrupted trip from its source to the Sudan border -- she jumped at the chance to revisit Ethiopia, a land she'd come to love during a sojourn many years before. The only African country never colonized by Europeans, its history spans more than two millennia from King Menelik, said in legend to be the son of Solomon and the Queen of Sheba, to Ras Tafari, better known to the West as Haile Selassie, who ruled until his overthrow in 1974. This is an insular culture, isolated by geography and tradition, where "ferenjjoch" visitors are greeted with curiosity and courtesy -- and sometimes suspicion, after three decades of military rule and a long war with Eritrea. Highlighted by Nevada Wier's evocative photographs, Morell's engrossing account introduces a world where tribesmen still hunt leopards with spears, and where villagers sometimes journey for days to catch a glimpse of foreigners and their marvelous boats. We linger at an impromptu concert and feast with people who have never seen a white face before, meet patriarchs whose Christianity stretches back to the Roman Empire, and face off with Kalashnikov-totingmilitiamen who may not be able to read the documents they demand. By the time we reach the border town of Bumbadi, we've been taken on an unforgettable journey through time -- and among a strong people who've resisted the advances of the modern world.. Hard Cover.

Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A.: Univ of Chicago Pr, 1993 Near-new condition. NO remainder marks or price clippings. Tight spine, clean pages. 292 pages. Illustrated throughout. NO writing, marks or tears inside book. Dependent on a shrinking supply of bamboo, hunted mercilessly for its pelt, and hostage to profiteering schemes once in captivity, the panda is on the brink of extinction. Here, acclaimed naturalist George Schaller uses his great evocative powers, and the insight gained by four and a half years in the forests of the Wolong and Tangjiahe panda reserves, to document the plight of these mysterious creatures and to awaken the human compassion urgently needed to save them. "No scientist is better at letting the rest of us in on just how the natural world works; no poet sees the world with greater clarity or writes about it with more grace. . . . Anyone who genuinely cares for wildlife cannot help being grateful to Schaller both for his efforts to understand the panda and for the candor with which he reports what has gone so badly wrong in the struggle to save it from extinction."Geoffrey C. Ward, New York Times Book Review "Schaller's book is a unique mix of natural history and the politics of conservation, and it makes for compelling reading. . . . Having been in giant panda country myself, I found some of the descriptions of the animals and habitats breathtaking. Schaller describes the daily routines and personalities of the giant pandas he studied (as well as their fates thereafter) as though they were his blood relatives. . . . Schaller's brilliant presentation of the complexities of conservation makes his book a milestone for the conservation movement."Devra G. Kleiman, Washington Post Book World "George Schaller's most soulful work, written in journal style with many asides about a creature who evolved only two to three million years ago (about the same time as humans). . . . Here, conservation biology confronts an evil that grinds against hope and shatters the planet's diversity. Written with hope."Whole Earth Catalog "A nicely crafted blend of wildlife observation and political-cultural analysis. . . . The Last Panda is a sad chronicle of our failure, so far, to stem the decline of the animal that may be the most beloved on the planet."Donald Dale Jackson, Smithsonian. Hard Cover.

[ED: Hardcover], [PU: Wiley], Today only about 1,000 giant pandas survive in the wild. Dependent on a shrinking supply of bamboo on the one hand, and threatened by human greed and indifference on the other, the panda is at extreme risk. As recently reported in Time, a live panda can bring 112,000 on the Chinese black market. In Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Japan, black marketeers charge buyers 10,000 or more for a panda pelt. At the same time, Western zoos pay millions to rent the ever-popular pandas for exhibit. Because the panda has become a lucrative commodity, protecting it in the wild seems a near impossible task. George Schaller and his Chinese colleagues were the first to make a detailed study of pandas in the wild. This book recounts their groundbreaking research on the panda in its dwindling native habitat and in the midst of political problems as troubling as any natural threat. Schaller forces us to confront the question: Can this extraordinary creature, survivor of countless threats from nature, survive its own popularity? In 1980, Schaller went into the mountains of Sichuan province to study the panda - a species considered a national treasure in China - on behalf of the Chinese government and the World Wildlife Fund. For over four and a half years, he and his wife, Kay, lived in the forests of the Wolong panda reserve, monitoring the lives of the pandas, recording their travels, fights, courtships, and deaths. In fog and rain and snow, over steep mountains, they tracked not only pandas but also such rare creatures as golden monkeys, red pandas, and takins. This is the story of the Schallers' remarkable journey - told with the evocative power that is George Schaller's gift. But The Last Panda is more thansuperb natural history. It is a frank, disturbing account of good intentions gone dangerously wrong of pandas left unprotected from poaching of deadly traps set by poor villagers hunting within nature preserves of the greed that drives the rent-a-panda programs of simple Versandfertig in 2-4 Wochen, DE, [SC: 0.00], Neuware, gewerbliches Angebot, offene Rechnung (Vorkasse vorbehalten)
