cover (23)Isom Dart and an Assortment of Scoundrels

Isom Dart and an Assortment of Scoundrels explores the life of Isom Dart. Isom Dart’s recent frontier adventures made a profound impression on the young man. In a matter of a few months he was nearly mauled by a bear, jailed with a murderer, tied up and left to die alone in the woods, lost his left ear and nearly his life to an ax-wielding woman, almost stabbed to death by an Indian brave, nearly burned at the stake, almost massacred by Indians, and ambushed for rustling horses. He was not sure how long his luck could hold out.” His real name was Ned Huddleston. The ex-slave turned cowboy was an early settler and successful rancher in the northwest corner of Colorado called “Browns Park.” He was both a friend of the infamous Butch Cassidy and his ranching neighbors. He also made some powerful enemies. The life of Isom Dart was never dull, and often dangerous.

cover (10)Transforming Human Awareness: Buddhist View of 2012 and Beyond

Once again, Juna reminds us that even though change may be difficult to accept, it remains to be the foundation of human adventures that inspire innovation and motivation from the challenges it creates.

As December 21, 2012 approached, making the end of the ancient Aztec calendar, people were anxiously anticipating a great change in the world. Anthropologists, archeologists, and others in the scientific community gathered the facts and systematically laid them out in a slew of written articles and books. Others took to the radio waves, started Internet blogs, and interviewed on television talk shows to share their professional opinions on the subject. Then, a refreshing wave of remarkable jubilation and elevated awareness filtered throughout the world.

The astounding insight and enlightened inspiration that manifested at the annual reunion of the Buddhist Peace Fellowship, composed of various expert spokespersons of international groups representing the humanistic mindset of their faith, grace the pages of this book to reveal the profound complexities of human life and its impact on the environment. By sharing their elevated views amidst sparkling humor, a fresh new revelation is revealed of the human revolution that has begun to take place.

cover (11)Muck Blossoms: A Healing Journey on the Path of Truth

Muck Blossoms by Juna Jinsei, Ph.D., is an inspiring tale that depicts the struggle to survive on a ranch built from the sweat and blood required to tame the wilderness in the 1870s.  Though it was a simpler time, which would allow pleasant social graces, harmonizing with the beauty of nature, and enjoying quality peace of mind, it was also a period of lawlessness and personal hardship that trampled independent thinking from the aspiring expectations of second class citizens.

Kathleen is a girl who learns as she transforms into a woman and raises her family on the wild Wyoming prairie that it is easy to get sucked into the stifling culture that erases one’s individualism and true identity. She becomes aware that one has to learn how to maneuver within the realm of oppression to avoid torture and death. As her family grows she begins to realize her hopes and dreams from a happy childhood can blossom anew from the dust and decay of a broken home. As she faces grave consequences on a daily basis, Kathleen develops the insight to see that it is the struggles, suffering, and obstacles from which her patience, determination, and courage thrive and grow.

Though she is a constant pawn controlled by the evil intent that surrounds her, and attempts made to smother her hopes and desires, Kathleen’s strong will protects her from those who threaten to extinguish the flame of love and joy that reside within her heart. As a prisoner of happenstance, she fights to keep her sanity while protecting her children, until she reaches the point of complete uncertainty of whether or not she and her loved ones will actually survive in the dangerous lair of a beastly maniac.

There is no greater way to promote productivity in the workplace than by supporting the well-being of the employees. Staff should be the first priority, because they are the company’s greatest asset.

Creativity, like spirituality, requires a combination of mind, heart, and soul. They go hand and hand, and should be experienced regularly, because happy workers are dynamic workers, and the foundation of a successful business.

perf5.500x8.500.inddRide Beyond The Restless Darkness

Ride Beyond The Restless Darkness gives readers a glimpse into the “old” black west. In 1868, Brackettville, Texas, was a wild and dangerous place for most men. A haven for many undesirables, the town drew all manner of drifters, lowlife, and gunmen from every corner of the surrounding territories. Brackettville was wild and dangerous for most men, but for a Black man, this place was the doorway to Hell. The book follows Johnson Able, who drifted into Texas two years earlier. As a runaway slave from Alabama, Johnson had taken flight one moonless night to escape the Pope Plantation and pursue his own destiny. Rejected and scorned by society, he headed West—but his quest for a new life presented trials and tribulations he’d never imagined.

An elegant and powerful novel, Ride Beyond the Restless Darkness explores the role African Americans played in westward expansion and the settlement of the West. It also tells the story of one man’s determination to survive in a hostile land…with his pioneer spirit and values intact and his heart open to possibility.

cover (52)The Philosopher’s Tears Annotated Reflections: Volume II

Tears are golden beams of liquid sunshine, flowing from within our heart and soul, and they speak to us with crystal clarity, revealing that within us lies hidden treasure. Whether of unbearable grief, sorrow, joy, humor, or uncontrollable laughter, every tear is a harbinger of ineffable, untold love. It is this love that makes us aware of who we truly are and sensitizes us, enabling us to empathize and anticipate the needs of others. Tears, therefore, are reflections—reminders to love one another, for we travel this human journey down the path to love in the image of one another.

The Philosopher’s Tears Annotated Reflections: Volume II is a collection of poems and poetic writing of an autobiographical nature. Each selection serves as a rubric to the reader in garnering the essence of love relationships. Through the “teary eyes” of poetic imagery, the reader is encouraged, motivated, and inspired to look within, and to reexamine the life one is truly living.

cover (47)Erosion Control and Land Restoration

The future of our species is currently being threatened by three main environmental issues: global warming, overpopulation, and soil erosion and desertification. This text addresses soil erosion and desertification. Worldwide, an area equivalent to 36 football fields is lost every minute due to erosion and desertification processes; in many places this loss never recovers again. This book provides the knowledge needed to successfully stabilize any situation in which soil erosion has occurred or is occurring, returning the land to a natural and/or productive state. This book is intended for use by anyone dealing with natural resources management, alterations in the soil-water-plant relationship, or the application of engineering principles to restore eroded or altered land – that is, researchers, professors, students, consultants, and other professionals. Available in English and Spanish, this book is used as a required text for undergraduate, graduate, and short courses focused on soil conservation, erosion/sediment control, and land restoration practices in many countries worldwide. By purchasing this book, you are contributing to the SOIL Fund of the International Erosion Control Association, which provides worldwide resources for land restoration projects that benefit poor communities.
