Μερικές φορές ένα κορίτσι δέχεται το άγγιγμα της Πολεμόχαρης Μητέρας. Τέτοιο κορίτσι είναι και η Θορν. Πασχίζοντας να πάρει εκδίκηση για τον θάνατο του πατέρα της, ζει μονάχα για να πολεμά. Τώρα, όμως, ο άντρας που τη δίδαξε πώς να σκοτώνει την κατηγορεί για φόνο. Μερικές φορές, μια γυναίκα γίνεται πολεμίστρια. Ξαφνικά βρίσκεται μπλεγμένη στις δολοπλοκίες του Πατέρα Γιάρβι, του πανούργου θεράποντα της Γκέτλαντ. Διασχίζοντας τον μισό κόσμο, αναζητώντας συμμάχους ενάντια στον αδίστακτο Υψηλό Βασιλέα, θα υποστεί μια σκληρή μαθητεία στο αίμα και τον δόλο. Μερικές φορές, μια πολεμίστρια γίνεται όπλο. Στο ταξίδι αυτό, έχει στο πλευρό της τον Μπραντ, έναν πολεμιστή που απεχθάνεται να σκοτώνει –αποτυχημένο τόσο στα δικά της μάτια όσο και στα δικά του–, με μία και μοναδική ευκαιρία να εξιλεωθεί. Τα όπλα υπηρετούν έναν και μόνο σκοπό. Άραγε η Θορν θα παραμείνει σε όλη της τη ζωή έρμαιο των ισχυρών ή θα καταφέρει να χαράξει τον δικό της δρόμο;

A Communion of Subjects is the first comparative and interdisciplinary study of the conceptualization of animals in world religions. Scholars from a wide range of disciplines, including Thomas Berry (cultural history), Wendy Doniger (study of myth), Elizabeth Lawrence (veterinary medicine, ritual studies), Marc Bekoff (cognitive ethology), Marc Hauser (behavioral science), Steven Wise (animals and law), Peter Singer (animals and ethics), and Jane Goodall (primatology) consider how major religious traditions have incorporated animals into their belief systems, myths, rituals, and art. Their findings offer profound insights into humans' relationships with animals and a deeper understanding of the social and ecological web in which we all live. Contributors examine Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Daoism, Confucianism, African religions, traditions from ancient Egypt and early China, and Native American, indigenous Tibetan, and Australian Aboriginal traditions, among others. They explore issues such as animal consciousness, suffering, sacrifice, and stewardship in innovative methodological ways. They also address contemporary challenges relating to law, biotechnology, social justice, and the environment. By grappling with the nature and ideological features of various religious views, the contributors cast religious teachings and practices in a new light. They reveal how we either intentionally or inadvertently marginalize "others," whether they are human or otherwise, reflecting on the ways in which we assign value to living beings. Though it is an ancient concern, the topic of "Religion and Animals" has yet to be systematically studied by modern scholars. This groundbreaking collection takes the first steps toward a meaningful analysis.

All three of these "Worthwhile Family Tales" or stories are loosely based on our real life experiences. But recast in the form of "Tall Tales" for our Grand nephews and nieces and a few other children in our lives. All of their names are used as characters in the stories, but are not of course biographical. Most of the real life experiences occurred to us their Grand uncles and aunts and Grandparents many years ago. It is our hope that these stories will endure in our family as a keepsake from our generation to theirs.

120 species of crows, jays and their allies exist in the world today. Many are exceedingly beautiful in colour, grace and form, whereas others are black and somewhat sinister in appearance. In no other group of perching birds has evolution produced such a degree of variation, from the tiny Hume's Ground-Jay of the steppe-highlands of Tibet to the huge Thick-billed Raven of the mountains of Ethiopia. Some have had a long association with people and appear in tales of mythology and superstition, while others have been regarded as agricultural pests. The great majority, however, remain largely unknown, their only contact with humanity being the destruction of their specialised habitats. As a consequence, more than 20 species are now regarded as internationally endangered, some of which are very poorly known. The 30 superb colour plates by Hilary Burn in this book depict them all; each plate is accompanied by an informative caption page summarising the criteria required to identify the species, alongside colour world distribution maps. Some of these birds, bearing such evocative names as the Banggai Crow, Mesopotamian Crow and Flores Crow, have never been illustrated before. The authoritative text by Steve Madge treats each species in depth, summarising identification techniques and concisely reviewing all aspects of corvid behaviour, distribution, population and taxonomy. The author has had first-hand experience of most of the species during his travels throughout the world, travels in which he gradually became fascinated by this very special, but somewhat ignored, group of birds. Crows and Jays is a combination of scientifically accurate information and an identification guide, planned to give anyone, whether a birdwatcher or biologist, a greater understanding of the lives of these beautiful, yet very complex, group of birds. It will surely be a standard work of reference for many years to come.
