In 2003, Tibetan lama Phakyab Rinpoche was admitted to the emergency clinic of the Program for Survivors of Torture at Manhattan’s Bellevue Hospital. After a dramatic escape from imprisonment in China, at the hands of authorities bent on uprooting Tibet’s traditional religion and culture, his ordeal had left him with life-threatening injuries, including gangrene of the right ankle. American doctors gave Rinpoche a shocking choice: accept leg amputation or risk a slow, painful death. An inner voice, however, prompted him to try an unconventional cure: meditation. He began an intensive spiritual routine that included thousands of hours of meditation over three years in a small Brooklyn studio. Against all scientific logic, his injuries gradually healed. In this vivid, passionate account, Sofia Stril-Rever relates the extraordinary experiences of Phakyab Rinpoche, who reveals the secret of the great healing powers that lie dormant within each of us.

In this short book, you'll find a brand new perspective on the practice of meditation, and over 20 different ways to make meditation work for you. The techniques are presented in their purest, most straightforward forms, stripped of traditional, ritual, and esoteric elements. The practice and the methodology behind them are clearly explained, and often illustrated with anecdotes from the author's own life experiences. This is a great book to have for beginners who want to jump into the practice with a minimum of formality, people who have tried before, but weren't able to make it work for them, and even for experienced meditators who want to add a new tool or two to their box of techniques. There's also an extensive chapter devoted to approaches and strategies to handling the kind of stress that's unavoidable in modern day life.

Robert Frost (1874–1963) was the most celebrated poet in America for most of the twentieth century. Although chiefly associated with the life and landscapes of New England, his work embodies penetrating and often dark explorations of universal themes. Frost received more than 40 honorary degrees, and the first of his four Pulitzer Prizes was awarded for this 1923 collection. New Hampshire features Frost's meditations on rural life, love, and death, delivered in the voice of a soft-spoken New Englander. Critics have long marveled at the poet's gift for capturing the speech of the region's natives and his realistic evocations of the area's landscapes. This compilation includes several of his best-known poems: "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening," "Nothing Gold Can Stay," and "Fire and Ice" as well as verse based on such traditional songs as "I Will Sing You One-O." The poems are complemented by the atmospheric illustrations created for the original edition by Frost's friend, woodcut artist J. J. Lankes.

Temperament and poor health motivated Robert Louis Stevenson to travel widely throughout his short life, and before he was celebrated as the author of Treasure Island, A Child's Garden of Verses, and other immortal works, he was known for his travelogues. This collection presents some of his finest writing in that vein, starting with "An Inland Voyage." This 1878 chronicle of a canoe journey through Belgium and France charmingly captures the European villages and townspeople of a bygone era. Other selections include "Travels with a Donkey in the Cévennes," a humorous account of a mountain trek, and "Forest Notes," a meditation on nature based on visits to the Forest of Fontainebleau near Paris and adjacent artists' colonies. These early writings offer captivating insights into Stevenson's bohemian nature and the wanderlust that sent him from his native Scotland to journeys around the world.
