Dream Work in Therapy: Facilitating Exploration, Insight, and Action

Product : Dream Work in Therapy: Facilitating Exploration, Insight, and Action
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In Dream Work in Therapy, distinguished researchers and clinicians explore Clara Hill's cognitiveexperiential model for working with dreams. Dreams are useful therapeutic tools because they help people circumvent their defenses to reach deeper levels of self-awareness. Developed over many years by Hill and her students, the approach integrates aspects from several existing dream theories, such as Freudian, Jungian, Gestalt, phenomenological, client-centered, and behavioral, to create a theoretically consistent, three-staged model. Working in collaboration with their clients (patients), therapists can help them explore their dreams, gain insight into the meaning of their dreams, and take action to resolve issues in their waking life. The book discusses the theoretical basis of the model and provides clear instructions for implementing it in practice. Through the use of valuable clinical examples, authors present extensions of the model in specific settings and populations, such as groups, men, the bereaved, and nightmare sufferers. Of particular interest to readers will be the last part of the book, which describes how to train therapists to use the model and provides a detailed review of the model's empirical research.This invaluable approach offers therapists and their clients a structured but flexible method for maximizing the therapeutic benefits of working with dreams.

Statisticians of the Centuries

Product : Statisticians of the Centuries
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Statisticians of the Centuries aims to demonstrate the achievements of statistics to a broad audience, and to commemorate the work of celebrated statisticians. This is done through short biographies that put the statistical work in its historical and sociological context, emphasizing contributions to science and society in the broadest terms rather than narrow technical achievement. The discipline is treated from its earliest times and only individuals born prior to the 20th Century are included. The volume arose through the initiative of the International Statistical Institute (ISI), the principal representative association for international statistics (founded in 1885). Extensive consultations within the statistical community, and with prominent members of ISI in particular, led to the names of the 104 individuals who are included in the volume. The biographies were contributed by 73 authors from across the world. The editors are the well-known statisticians Chris Heyde and Eugene Seneta. Chris Heyde is Professor of Statistics at both Columbia University in New York and the Australian National University in Canberra. Eugene Seneta is Professor of Mathematical Statistics at the University of Sydney and a Member of the ISI. His historical writings focus on 19th Century France and the Russian Empire. Both editors are Fellows of the Australian Academy of Science and have, at various times, been awarded the Pitman Medal of the Statistical Society of Australia for their distinguished research contributions.

Tigers of the World: The Science, Politics, and Conservation of Panthera Tigris

Product : Tigers of the World: The Science, Politics, and Conservation of Panthera Tigris
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The second edition of Tigers of the World explores tiger biology, ecology, conservation, management, and the science and technology that make this possible. In 1988 when the first edition was published, tiger conservation was still in its infancy, and two decades later there has been a revolution not only in what is known, but how information about tigers is obtained and disseminated. In the fast changing world of conservation there is a great need to summarize the vast and current state-of-the-art, to put this into historical perspective, and to speculate in what yet remains to be done. Tigers of the World, 2nd Edition fulfills this need by bringing together in a unique way the world's leading tiger experts into one volume. Despite the challenges ahead, there are bright spots in this story, and lessons aplenty not only for tiger specialists but large carnivore specialists, conservation biologists, wildlife managers, natural resource policy makers, and most importantly the caring public. It is through broad public understanding and support - in Asia, North America, and Europe - that will have the greatest impact on tigers over the long term. With this in mind, the book is novel in its presentation of information using images, indigenous art and poetry, anecdotes, maps and other images to engage and inform. Side bars and text boxes focus on important concepts and debates and help to balance different perspectives and opinions. There is no other book which equally benefits both the scientific and general audiences. *Comprehensive look at the past twenty years from the world's leading tiger experts on the biology, politics, and conservation of this species. *Discusses that latest and vast methods used to disseminate and obtain information needed for conservation and care of this species. *Excellent opportunity for upper-level and graduate courses in conservation biology, wildlife management, and veterinary programs. *The world's leading tiger experts review recent advances and debates in tiger genetics and ecology, research methods, management and policy, poaching and trade, captive breeding and farming, conservation, and the status of Asia's last wild tigers.

Automated Defect Prevention: Best Practices in Software Management

Product : Automated Defect Prevention: Best Practices in Software Management
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book describes an approach to software management based on establishing an infrastructure that serves as the foundation for the project. This infrastructure defines people roles, necessary technology, and interactions between people and technology. This infrastructure automates repetitive tasks, organizes project activities, tracks project status, and seamlessly collects project data to provide measures necessary for decision making. Most importantly, this infrastructure sustains and facilitates the improvement of human-defined processes. The methodology described in the book, which is called Automated Defect Prevention (ADP) stands out from the current software landscape as a result of two unique features: its comprehensive approach to defect prevention, and its far-reaching emphasis on automation. ADP is a practical and thorough guide to implementing and managing software projects and processes. It is a set of best practices for software management through process improvement, which is achieved by the gradual automation of repetitive tasks supported and sustained by this flexible and adaptable infrastructure, an infrastructure that essentially forms a "software production line." In defining the technology infrastructure, ADP describes necessary features rather than specific tools, thus remaining "vendor neutral." Only a basic subset of features that are essential for building an effective infrastructure has been selected. Many existing commercial and non-commercial tools support these, as well as more advanced features. Appendix E contains such a list.

Product : Underwater to Get Out of the Rain: A Love Affair with the Sea
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : On a hot summer's day there could be no quicker transport to the seaside than Trevor Norton's cool and entrancing account of a lifetime's adventures under or near the water. Norton's eye for the bizarre, amazing, and beautiful inhabitants of the oceans, and the eccentric characters who work, study, and live by the shore make his book a wonder-filled experience. An intrepid diver and distinguished scientist, Norton's writing is self-deprecating, very funny, and full of wry and intriguing anecdotes; he is an unfailingly delightful companion. Whether his setting is a bed of jewel anemones in an Irish lough, a giant California cavern shared with sea lions, a mildewed research station, or the glittering coral gardens of Sharm el Sheikh, his captivating prose always finds the mark. Sometimes following the shoreline with earlier beachcombers such as Darwin, John Steinbeck, and George Orwell, Norton also takes the reader to depths where the shapes of creatures living without sunlight defy imagination. Admirers of the gorgeous detail of Rachel Carson's "The Sea Around Us" will revel in Norton's writing, his observations, and irreverent wit.

Dance Between Two Cultures: Latino Caribbean Literature Written in the United States

Product : Dance Between Two Cultures: Latino Caribbean Literature Written in the United States
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Offers insights on Latino Caribbean writers born or raised in the United States who are at the vanguard of a literary movement that has captured both critical and popular interest. In this groundbreaking study, William Luis analyzes the most salient and representative narrative and poetic works of the newest literary movement to emerge in Spanish American and U.S. literatures. The book is divided into three sections, each focused on representative Puerto Rican American, Cuban American, and Dominican American authors. Luis traces the writers' origins and influences from the nineteenth century to the present, focusing especially on the contemporary works of Oscar Hijuelos, Julia Alvarez, Cristina Garcia, and Piri Thomas, among others. While engaging in close readings of the texts, Luis places them in a broader social, historical, political, and racial perspective to expose the tension between text and context. As a group, Latino Caribbeans write an ethnic literature in English that is born of their struggle to forge an identity separate from both the influences of their parents' culture and those of the United States. For these writers, their parents' country of origin is a distant memory. They have developed a culture of resistance and a language that mediates between their parents' identity and the culture that they themselves live in. Latino Caribbeans are engaged in a metaphorical dance with Anglo Americans as the dominant culture. Just as that dance represents a coming together of separate influences to make a unique art form, so do both Hispanic and North American cultures combine to bring a new literature into being. This new body of literature helps us to understand not only the adjustments Latino Caribbean cultures have had to make within the larger U.S. environment but also how the dominant culture has been affected by their presence.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Lebanese Civil War dominated life in Beirut from 1975 until 1990. When it ended, a massive rebuilding began, with the goal of making its Central District the finest city center in the Middle East. In 2002 Larry E. McPherson was commissioned to document this transition. Between 2002 and 2004 he spent a total of six months there, and his understated, visually affectionate photographs convey the natural beauty of Beirut's position between the Mediterranean and Lebanon's snow covered mountains. "Beirut City Center" encompasses archeological sites made into public areas, gardens, perfectly restored Ottoman and French architecture, and elegantly integrated new construction, and conveys both the practical and symbolic importance of building again.

Building a Eucharistic Community: A Handbook of Liturgical Catechesis

Product : Building a Eucharistic Community: A Handbook of Liturgical Catechesis
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The centrality of Christ's death and resurrection in human history is the underlying theme of this handbook for parish catechetical leaders. Mary J. McDonald, a seasoned catechetical consultant, shows how the church, from its beginnings until the present, has celebrated this mystery in its liturgy. "Full, conscious and active" participation in the liturgy is what enables members of the assembly to live the Christian life, she says, but this level of participation is not easy to achieve. To do so, parishes need to engage in full-scale "liturgical catechesis" for people of all ages. In her view, the lectionary is the primary catechetical text. Concentrating on the Sunday readings instills a knowledge and love of scripture in members of the community, links them to the liturgical year and the Eucharist, and forms them into true disciples. Each chapter concludes with helpful reflection questions. Extended bibliography included.

Be the Change

Product : Be the Change
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Meet the men and women whose deeply personal philanthropy is dramatically changing the way we think about giving There are 8.6 million millionaires in the United States, and these numbers are set to rise in what will be the biggest intergenerational wealth transfer in history. As $41 trillion dollars (or over three times the national GDP) moves from the World War II generation to their baby- boomer children over the next couple of decades, it will become imperative that the beneficiaries of this wealth--even those not joining the ranks of the superrich--begin thinking about philanthropy, perhaps for the first time in their adult lives. Here they will find the personal journeys of the most successful givers of their generation. This new generation of wealth has already begun to change the face of philanthropy and to reshape the entire nonprofit sector. In "Be the Change," bestselling author Lisa Endlich presents eleven compelling profiles of this twenty-first century generosity. Through candid, revealing, and often surprising interviews, readers will venture into the hearts and minds of the top names in philanthropy today--men and women who have chosen to use their immense riches and influence to meaningfully improve the lives of others in the most dramatic ways. These intimate conversations include in-depth interviews with: Melinda Gates, one of the driving forces behind the largest philanthropic organization the world has ever seen; Bob and Suzanne Wright, he's the former vice chairman of GE and longtime head of NBC Universal and their Autism Speaks has brought awareness of autism onto the national and international stage; Paul Tudor Jones, founder of Tudor Investments and the Robin Hood Foundation; Peter Bloom, founding chairman of the groundbreaking DonorsChoose.org. From Connie Duckworth, a former Goldman Sachs partner, who brings steady employment to Afghani women and education to them and their children, to Johann Olav Koss, an Olympic gold medalist who now strives to give children in the direst circumstances the chance to play, these philanthropists demonstrate that giving doesn't begin or end with a signed check. They grant Endlich exclusive access to the stories of how they learned from early failures and developed a personal, sustainable way of giving, and they also share the catalyzing moment when they saw a problem so heartbreaking they simply could not turn away. In doing so, these new philanthropists offer valuable lessons--ones that will inspire readers to start giving, keep giving, and become the change they want to see in the world.

Intellectuals and McCarthy: The Radical Specter

Product : Intellectuals and McCarthy: The Radical Specter
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The late Joseph McCarthy has left a permanent mark on American political life. But the meaning and depth of that mark has been obscured. A major theme of this important study is that McCarthy did not suppress or stifle political thinking so much as he radically transformed it. A large block of American intellectuals evolved an original theory of politics in reaction to McCarthyism. Many American intellectuals found McCarthy's roots in the agrarian radical tradition--emerging from Populists, La Follette progressives, the non-Partisan League. The present study challenges the notion that McCarthy had agrarian radical roots. The book concludes by suggesting that fear of popular uprisings and radical protest has divorced political analysis from the specific issues around which protest forms. These issues determine whether mass movements will be dangerous or valuable. Ignoring the issues of politics, Rogin argues, leads to a reliance on established institutions unhealthy and unrealistic in a free society.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Just when we thought we knew everything about Lewis Carroll, here comes a highly original biography that will appeal to Alice fans everywhere. Fascinated by the inner life of Charles Lutwidge Dodson, Robin Wilson, a Carroll scholar and a noted mathematics professor, has produced this revelatory book-filled with more than one hundred striking and often playful illustrations-that examines the many inspirations and sources for Carroll's fantastical writings, mathematical and otherwise. As Wilson demonstrates, Carroll-who published serious, if occasionally eccentric, works in the fields of geometry, logic, and algebra-made significant contributions to subjects as varied as voting patterns and the design of tennis tournaments, in the process creating imaginative recreational puzzles based on mathematical ideas. In the tradition of Sylvia Nasar's A Beautiful Mind and Andrew Hodges's Alan Turing, this is an engaging look at the incredible genius of one of mathematics' and literature's most enigmatic minds.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : No dogma please. And hold the mustard. For something to be called "Christ"ianity, it should be based on the teachings of Jesus "Christ," Jesus never said he needed to die for our sins so we could be "saved." Only Paul and John make this claim. Christianity has therefore become a form of Paulism and Johnism that emphasize the Savior aspect of Jesus. But Paul had never met or heard Jesus teach, and John tells a story that's so different from the other disciples that we must seriously question him as a source. Did you also know there are two different biblical stories about how Judas dies? And Mary Magdalene wasn't a prostitute until the Pope made her one in the sixth century. Pope Urban II even made killing non-Christians acceptable in the eleventh century. Born Again Christian, President George W. Bush, also believes in the "Rapture" and the "End of Times." See why this should be alarming. Other subjects include ancient Buddhist records about Jesus traveling to India and studying Buddhism. Jesus may even have studied and practiced Kabbalah. Subsequently, "What Did Jesus Really Say" is an easy to read introduction that also reflects on God, Karma, Buddhism, Kabbalah, Reincarnation, Politics, and even Astrophysics.

The result is a marvelous collection of consistently high-quality poems diverse in form, tone, style, stance, and subject matter. With comments from the poets themselves illuminating their poems and a foreword by series editor David Lehman, "The Best American Poetry 2000" is this year's must-have book for all poetry lovers.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Sora is the wise, young High Chieftess of the Black Falcon Nation. For many winters her heart belonged to her husband, Flint, a warrior from a neighboring clan. Flint truly loved Sora, but jealousy drove him to beat men to death for merely casting a longing glance at his wife. Unable to live with his murderous rage, Flint moved back to his mother's clan, divorcing Sora and leaving her forever. Remarried and fully devoted to her duties as the High Chieftess, Sora tries to bury her memories of Flint. Then, on the eve of war with a neighboring nation, she is visited by Skinner, an old friend of Flint. Skinner tells her of Flint's death, but Sora feels that he carries part of Flint's soul inside him. When Skinner reveals secrets that only Flint would know, and rouses her passion in ways only Flint had, Sora must figure out if this is the clever witchcraft of enemies who want to seize her power and destroy her nation, or the spirit of her one and only true love.

Description : Amanda loves to play act for fun. But when a family of runaways hides in her house, playacting isn't a game anymore. It's the only way to save lives. In 1850, it is against the law to help runaway slaves. But that doesn't stop Amanda's parents from sheltering a family of four in their Hudson River farmhouse, and it doesn't stop ten-year-old Amanda from immediately befriending Hannah, the brave and determined older child, whose courage and spirit are an inspiration to Amanda. Hannah, who has been forbidden to learn to read or write by her former owner, cannot wait to begin. "Reading is freedom", that's what Hannah's mother says. Hanna wants to be free in every way she can. And now headstrong Amanda risks everything to help her. Crackling with action and filled with suspense, this heart-stopping adventure has much to say about the transcendent power of friendship and the transforming power of literacy.

The Lesbian and Gay Movements: Assimilation or Liberation?

Product : The Lesbian and Gay Movements: Assimilation or Liberation?
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Throughout their relatively short history, the lesbian and gay movements in the United States have endured searing conflicts over whether to embrace assimilationist or liberationist strategies. This new book explores this dilemma in both contemporary and historical contexts, describing the sources of these conflicts, to what extent the conflicts have been resolved, and how they might be resolved in future. The text also tackles the challenging issue of what constitutes movement "effectiveness" and how "effective" the assimilationist and liberationist strategies have been in three contentious policy arenas: the military ban, same-sex marriage, and AIDS. Considerable attention is devoted to how policy elites-most notably Presidents Reagan, Bush, and Clinton; Congress; and the Supreme Court-have responded to the movements' grievances. The book examines the George W. Bush presidency with an eye to assessing how political opportunities have informed the broader lesbian and gay movements' strategies, and also details the response of the Christian Right to the movements' various assimilationist and liberationist strategies.

Ice Time: The Story of Hockey

Product : Ice Time: The Story of Hockey
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Hockey is breathtakingly fast and fascinating. Ice Time: The Story of Hockey (Temps de glace: l'histoire du hockey) traces the sport from its hotly contested origins to the present day's first-ever lockout of players by the one remaining league. It covers the sport's surge in popularity after 1875, when it moved to inside rinks; the rise and fall, and rise again, of women's hockey; the sagas of long-lost leagues, such as the Pacific Coast Hockey Association; and more recently the World Hockey Association. Through its lavishly illustrated pages skate the players, the coaches, and the almost forgotten legends who are the reason why we love the game. Although the book stands alone, it is based on "Hockey: A People's History," a ten-part CBC/Radio Canada series airing in fall 2006.

Jessie's Island

Product : Jessie's Island
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : With a long list of activities and events to attend, Thomas paints a picture of city life which makes Jessie's world seem a little dull in comparison. When her mother suggests they invite Cousin Thomas to visit their island, Jessie wonders glumly what she could possibly write in her letter that would sound as exciting as zoos, planetariums or video arcades. But as Jessie looks out over her island home, she sees a world of endless variety, from killer whales in the strait and bald eagles soaring overhead to anemones and tiny hermit crabs on the shore. She thinks of countless days spent exploring, fishing, swimming and canoeing. Now, as she bends over her letter to her cousin, Jessie knows exactly what she will write. Told with lyric simplicity, this story is more than a celebration of West Coast life; it is also a reminder of the joy of childhood and the thrill of discovery. In a time when our children's entertainment has become increasingly formal and high-tech, Jessie's Island reminds us of the joy of unstructured play and the pleasures to be found in the natural world around us. Sheryl McFarlane is a former teacher and child-care worker and the mother of three. Her first book with Orca, Waiting for the Whales, was published in the fall of 1991 and was an immediate success. Sheena Lott is an award-winning artist whose work has been exhibited in galleries across Canada. She is best known for her watercolor landscapes, primarily of the West Coast of Canada, and more recently of California and her native Scotland. Much of her work is available as limited edition prints and art cards. This is her first book for children.

This beautifully illustrated, full color book teaches artists how to create stunning and convincing textures using the popular 3ds max TM, Maya A(R), and LightWave 3D A(R) programs. It describes the theory behind many aspects of the software, to give artists a deeper understanding of the technology, and its past, present, and future. It helps readers understand the limitations that 3D animation places on creating quality imagery, and details the artistic techniques behind creating convincing textures, not just realistic or photorealistic ones. The tutorials and techniques included throughout the book don't just show users how to recreate a texture, but take them deep into the tools of the programs to help them really understand how and why they work. After working through the tutorials, users will be able to take their skills to the next level and create their own stunning textures

One-Car Caravan: The Amazing True Saga of the 2004 Democratic Race from Its Humble Beginnings to the Boston Convention

Product : One-Car Caravan: The Amazing True Saga of the 2004 Democratic Race from Its Humble Beginnings to the Boston Convention
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : These days, John Kerry is swaddled in political bubble wrap, surrounded by Secret Service agents and stalked by a media army. But Kerry wasn't always cordoned off. Back when candidates traveled with a lone aide, it was possible to obtain a revealing portrait of Kerry, free of the hurly-burly of vast entourages. That's what USA Today political columnist Walter Shapiro did as he hit the campaign trail early to write One-Car Caravan, his revealing and witty behind-the-scenes account of the race for the 2004 nomination. Shapiro portrays all the Democratic dreamers at that innocent moment when anything seemed possible, even the White House itself. He captures the heady rise of Howard Dean, as well as the relentless optimism of John Edwards that carried him so far in his break-out appearance on the national stage. One-Car Caravan also unveils the secret strategies and the closed-door fund-raisers that are integral parts of that little-chronicled phase of politics known as the "Invisible Primary." Full of incisive observations of the candidates and trenchant analysis of the political process, One-Car Caravan is now updated with several additional chapters to extend the Democratic saga to its dramatic conclusion. As wry as it is riveting, Shapiro's journey from a "One-Car Caravan" to the Convention offers a refreshing take on how modern presidents are really made.

The Company They Kept: Writers on Unforgettable Friendships

Product : The Company They Kept: Writers on Unforgettable Friendships
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Our most remarkable writers share what has influenced them the most: each other. " Many of the illustrious contributors to "The New York Review of Books" have had deep and abiding relationships-both personal and intellectual-with other poets, writers, artists, composers, and scientists of equal stature. "The Company They Kept" is a collection of twenty-seven accounts of these varied friendships-most of them undeniably fraught with "idiosyncratic complexities." One of the sweetest and funniest is Prudence Crowther's memoir of her romance, at age thirty, with the seventy-four-year old S. J. Perelman ("As a friend of mine put it, 'Yeah, too bad you couldn't have met when you were twenty six and he was seventy-or when he was thirty, and your parents hadn't met yet.'"). Darryl Pinckney recalls his unsettling stint as Djuna Barnes's handyman. Susan Sontag's piece on Paul Goodman is more about how they never hit it off; Seamus Heaney's remembrance of Tom Flanagan has all the melancholy affection of a bereft and beloved son. Larry McMurtry and Ken Kesey were grad students together-for years afterward, McMurtry recalls, the Merry Pranksters would show up unannounced, and throw his family and neighbors into hilarious chaos. Derek Walcott recalls his parting of the ways with Robert Lowell, and of their bittersweet reconciliation. And Robert Oppenheimer writes that he wants to dispel the clouds of myth surrounding Albert Einstein: "As always, the myth has its charms; but the truth is far more beautiful." From Anna Akhmatova's dreamlike description of wandering through Paris with the impoverished Modigliani to Joseph Brodsky's account of his first meeting with Isaiah Berlin (from which he returned to report, around the kitchen table, to Stephen Spender and W.H. Auden), these pieces are tantalizing glimpses into the lives of those who have made "The New York Review of Books" into what "Esquire "magazine calls "the premier literary-intellectual magazine in the English language."

Secrets of the Moneylab: How Behavioral Economics Can Improve Your Business

Product : Secrets of the Moneylab: How Behavioral Economics Can Improve Your Business
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Taking behavioral economics from the cocktail party to the boardroom, with dramatic results Books like "Predictably Irrational" and "Nudge" have brought behavioral economics into the mainstream. But while we all marvel at how different-and weird-real people behave compared to the "rational actors" of traditional economics, in the end we go back to business as usual. After all, what do a few laboratory experiments have to do with making a buck? As economist Kay-Yut Chen has shown, quite a bit. Chen started behavioral economics research at Hewlett-Packard, founding the first such "moneylab" at any company, let alone one in the Fortune 500. His groundbreaking research into human behavior has led to tangible results for HP. In fact, he has saved the company millions of dollars by showing how changing the right conditions can make people behave very differently. "Secrets of the Moneylab" offers practical lessons being put to use right now at HP and other leading companies. It explains, for instance, how to: * Use incentives to influence employees, suppliers, and buyers. * Determine whom to trust, and how much. * Reduce the negative effects of irrational behavior by noticing patterns that don't seem logical-but are utterly predictable. * Overcome the human tendency to game the system. * Profit from motives beyond money. Chen and science writer Marina Krakovsky reveal in plain English how to translate the counterintuitive findings of behavioral economics into concrete action steps for businesses of any size. "Secrets of the Moneylab" shows how tackling your real-world problems like a scientist can open up entirely new realms of possibility and profit.

A Wild Life: Adventures of an Accidental Conservationist in Africa

Product : A Wild Life: Adventures of an Accidental Conservationist in Africa
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This British ex-patriot moved to Zimbabwe in 1977, when it was still called Rhodesia. Pitman stumbled into saving wild animals almost by mistake. But his sense of humor, and love of animals, made him a perfect candidate for this fraught and sometimes frustrating mission. His tales from the bush and passion for wildlife and conservation are filled with humor and heartbreak--saving elephants in Matusadona National Park, tracking black rhinos, saving cheetahs, and, perhaps most dangerous, introducing foreign tourists to African wildlife. This is a witty and hope-filled true story from a talented writer who is frequently in the news discussing the challenges of Zimbabwe's natural future.
