Getting lost and feeling found... 'I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.' - John Muir, John of the Mountains Walking is medicine for the mind. It helps us slow down and think things through. It also helps us perk up and generate new ideas. There are few activities as readily available and revitalizing as a brisk walk, or as soothing and stimulating as a long walk. Wonderful things can happen when we set out on two feet. Within these pages, you will find stories from artists, designers, writers, psychologists and speakers who are inspired by the effect of pacing outdoors. You will hear of walks in the city, hikes through woods at dawn and epic adventures involving long journeys on foot. No matter the scale of the tale, the writer offers lessons they learned of a simple, human nature that we can all understand. In each chapter you will discover suggestions and ideas about how to create simple daily habits from the writer's thinking. In a world where so much of the noise around us suggests we are not good enough as we are, and that we must seek to change, these accounts try to do something different. They aim instead to invite a stroll into the complex pathways of the mind to discover the beauty of our own quirky individuality.

Bellow evokes all the rich colour and exotic customs of a highly imaginary Africa in this comic novel about a middle-aged American millionaire who, seeking a new, more rewarding life, descends upon an African tribe. Henderson's awesome feats of strength and his unbridled passion for life earns him the admiration of the tribe - but it is his gift for making rain that turns him from mere hero into messiah. A hilarious, often ribald story, HENDERSON THE RAIN KING is also a profound look at the forces that drive a man through life.

After witnessing her mother s gruesome murder as a child, she is now left piecing together the fragments of her shattered psyche as an adult. Quickly, she is drowning in years of frustration and confusion with no promise of relief. Sinister visions and undying spirits haunt Rain relentlessly, driving her deeper into darkness and lunacy.

In her fragile mental state, Rain is ill-equipped to handle the chaos of their ruptured lives. When Rain, Carmen, and Danny are submerged into the horrors of prostitution, drug-addiction, domestic violence, and murder, Rain is left alone to face her internal demons and find her identity, with no one to answer to, but herself.

My name is Constance L. Aguero. The name of this book is, The Wounded Child, The girl the world forgot! this book consists of poetry that I have been writing since I was about eight years old. These poems express the feelings that this young survivor experienced at the hands of sexual, physical and emotional abuse. These poems talk about the abuse of my father, my uncle Walter, my uncle Raymond, my mother and her previous boyfriends, and my father's tricks that he brought home from the bar. I'm hoping that with me expressing my abuse through my poetry, that I can give a young or old person a chance at some hope. I decided that it was time for the world to know exactly what kind of people my abusers really were. I also figured this was my chance to tell my story, my way, without fearing what my abusers might think. This is my time to stand up and feel proud of the young woman I taught myself to be. My goals for writing this book are to let children know that it is not ok to be abused, that they should tell someone if they are. Also I want a chance to feel proud that I finally finished something that I set out to do. I believe that if people take time to trust their gut instincts that they will be able to find the appropriate treatment for their issues. If they do this, they will feel a huge change in how they feel about themselves.
