Arnhem Land's Children

by Graham Wilson

It was hot. A sudden stillness was in the late afternoon air. The waterhole's surface shone with unnatural smoothness. Fresh pig tracks at it's edge told of pigs just gone. Two bubbles popped up, their spreading ripples fracturing the tree and sky reflections; just decaying vegetation, said my mind. I should have known better, I should have smelt crocodile!!What is it about the Northern Territory that fascinates?I have only to mention it’s name in conversation and people stop and turn to listen.Why, for 190 years, has it drawn people from all over to come, stay longer than they imagined and, often, never leave?This book is a memoir of a family's life in a remote aboriginal community, in Australia's Northern Territory, something the equivalent of remote Canada or Alaska, where few people ...

by Matt Clayton

Enjoy Captivating Stories of the Gods, Goddesses, Monsters, and MortalsFrom what we know of history, Egypt, along with Sumer, were the foundations of civilization. The Fertile Crescent, which stretched from the Nile Valley to the twin rivers in Mesopotamia, gave us our earliest glimpse of organized man. But organized how? For one, both locations gave us writing—hieroglyphics in Egypt and cuneiform in Sumer. There is still some debate about who was first.In this book, we will start by looking at the gods and goddesses of Kemet—Ancient Egypt. Then, we will turn our attention to the monsters which likely gave them nightmares and humbled them in their quest to bring order to the world around them.Finally, we will look at the mortals which shaped their civilization and made Egypt the bedroc...

For the Shwartz family, survival was the only option. Their will to live, and a bit a luck, kept the family safe during the Holocaust, bringing them across Eastern Europe all the way to Israel.In 1937, the Shwartz family lived a calm life in their small village in Poland. Fifteen-year-old Rachel liked to sing and go out dancing at a local night club, while her older brother David was busy running a farm and raising a family with his wife Hinda. But all that changed when the war reached Butla.First, the Russians came and kicked them out of their house. Then, the Nazis came to cart them off. But the Shwartz family resisted. David decided that no matter what, his family would not be taken captive. Instead, he snuck his family out of their village, through a large forest, and into Hungary, a p...

Seth Kinman: The Life and Legacy of the Famous Californian Mountain Man

by Charles River Editors

*Includes pictures*Includes online resources and a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contentsBy the golden age of the mountain man in the mid-19th-century, there were perhaps only 3,000 living in the West. Their origins were disparate, although they included many Anglo-Americans. A good number hailed from wilderness regions of Kentucky and Virginia and throughout the newly purchased Louisiana Territory, which occupied the entire central section of the continent. French Canadians traveled from the north to work in the fur trade, while Creole-Europeans represented approximately 15% of the men known to be living the isolated mountain life. Others were of Métis, Spanish, American, Black, Indian, and mixed-blood origin, most often Iroquois or Delaware. Most came to the West ...

The Portuguese monks made us believe that the people worshiped the devil, and it is they who have served him.” – VoltaireThe road to the modern age of cultural harmony and acceptance is one of the finest feats of human progress, but having said that, there was once a time when the mere doubt of a religious figure's existence was not only punishable by law, it could very well cost a man his life. This was the crime of heresy. This kind of religious persecution has been around for thousands of years, and Christians were often the victims, but when the Catholic C...

From a nightmarish Libya under the deranged Moammar Qaddafi, to an exhausted, polarized and increasingly fanatical Egypt before the Arab Spring finally ripped the region to pieces. From the Lebanese border during the devasting war between Israel and Hezbollah, to Iraq in the grips of an insurgency mounted by the murderous precursor to ISIS.

Enigmatic Odyssey

by L. A. Braun

Enjoy this striking exploration of Leonardo Da Vinci's secret number '26' and REBUS (pictures used for words) in relation to the Greco-Roman mythology in Homer's epic 'Odyssey' of a Greek warrior of the Trojan War. This book guides the reader through the 2,800-year-old story about the 3,200-year-old Trojan War--as seen through the eyes of its favorite warrior Odysseus. Along the way we deliberate on the relevance of Leonardo Da Vinci’s secrets—primarily the number ’26’ and rebus—in regard to the related artwork. We want to leave no rock unturned in respect to our search for the meaning of Da Vinci’s secrets. This book is an enthralling spellbinder tracing the hidden number ‘26’ and rebus all over the finest artwork and illustrations for 'Metamorphoses.' Without a doubt, Da ...

Rebus of Jesus Christ

by L. A. Braun

'Tis the season for fresh rebus! This NEW Symposium Booklet explores the use of rebus (using pictures to represent numbers or words) in the ancient artwork of Jesus Christ (with a special emphasis on his role as the sacrificial Lamb and the 'Red Dragon of Revelation as Satan' iconology). Jesus Christ had stated that you must become like a child to enter into the Kingdom of God. Rebus is child-like play that few are mature enough to embrace—even though the ancient texts themselves told us that rebus was where the sacred secrets were actually hidden. As our theory goes, the ‘80’ would represent the 80th element of Mercury while the ‘79’ would represent the 79th element of Gold. The Transformation Process would take one electron from Mercury to formulate Gold. Come play. Also explor...

Constructions of Cancer in Early Modern England: Ravenous Natures (Palgrave Studies in Literature, Science and Medicine)

by Alanna Skuse

This book is open access under a CC-BY licence. Cancer is perhaps the modern world's most feared disease. Yet, we know relatively little about this malady's history before the nineteenth century. This book provides the first in-depth examination of perceptions of cancerous disease in early modern England. Looking to drama, poetry and polemic as well as medical texts and personal accounts, it contends that early modern people possessed an understanding of cancer which remains recognizable to us today. Many of the ways in which medical practitioners and lay people imagined cancer – as a 'woman's disease' or a 'beast' inside the body – remain strikingly familiar, and they helped to make this disease a byword for treachery and cruelty in discussions of religion, culture and politics. Equal...

The 13th Enumeration: Key to the Bible's Messsianic Symbolism (Prophecies & Patterns Book 1)

by William Struse

The 13th Enumeration: Key to the Bible’s Messianic Symbolism

For centuries scholars have argued about the authenticity of the lineage of Yeshua (Jesus), as found in Matthew 1. Many have asked why the apostle Matthew failed to mention four of the Messiah’s ancestors. Others have asked why this famous lineage was arranged more like a cipher than a straight forward listing of Yeshua’s generations.

In The 13th Enumeration: Key to the Bible’s Messianic Symbolism, William Struse takes you on Biblical adventure in search of answers. In this thrilling investigation of one of the great unsolved mysteries of the Bible you’ll learn the reasons why:
