"Plans are usually only good for one thing - laughing at in hindsight. So, armed with rudimentary Spanish, dangerous levels of curiosity and a record of poor judgement, I set off to tackle whatever South America could throw at me." On his nineteenth birthday, Peter Allison flipped a coin. One side would take him to Africa and the other to South America. He recounted his time spent as a safari guide in Africa to much acclaim in Don't Run, Whatever You do and Don't Look Behind You. Sixteen years later he makes his way to Chile, ready to seek out the continent's best, weirdest and wildest adventures - and to chase the elusive jaguar. From learning to walk a puma (or rather be bitten and dragged along by it) in Bolivia, to finding love in Patagonia and hunting naked with the remote Huaorani people in Ecuador, How to Walk a Puma is Peter's fascinating and often hilarious account of misadventures in South America. Ever the gifted storyteller and cultural observer, Allison makes many observations about life in humid climes, the nature of nomadism, and exactly what it is like to be nearly blasted off a mountain by the famous Patagonia wind. His self-deprecating humour is as delightful as his crazy stunts, and his love for animals - even when they bite - is infectious.
Paul Eh-em is a cautious thirty year old plagued by reticence and life-world trivia. Noticing a mountain lion cub watching him from a tree, he takes inspiration and records his experiences of starting over in a rural California town. His writing and those he befriends figure in his transition and integration of his separated selves. But his story reaches beyond connecting meaningfully with people and finding the best-fit match for him. He must become resolute in working through his own sexual orientation and grief lite. He must also navigate through a maze of frustrated plans, decisions about career and calling, inaccurate first impressions, feelings of emptiness, errors in judgment, troubling memories, mistakes and inadequacies, philosophical quibbles, and admirable yet formidable people and situations that challenge him. His story is a meta-fiction of identity formation animated by feminine energies, totemic mascots, and diverse and developing characters. All this and much, much more is his journey to a conclusion. Or is it a precarious beginning?
Halfbreed, ugly, barely human in the eyes of those around him. His Medicine-Woman mother, Cursed, banished for the sin of defending her patient/adoptive father against the abuses of the new leader. She was told to find her own people, her own mate. But the boy has two peoples. Half Cro-Magnon, can he belong in either world? He thinks differently than either of his parents. What becomes of him? The author, an inventor and engineer, describes how cold and hunger force these primitive people, with only rocks and wits, to find new ways to hunt and thrive. Like most innovation; motivation, a different way of thinking, plus a coincidental hint, point the way to survival. But the most profound inventions come from a mere girl, the boy's future mate. Through a series of accidental discoveries, Neanderthal life goes from precarious to predictable. But their success could be their undoing. Conflict looms with the Cro-Magnon, led by the boy's grandfather. Who will control the herds they both depend on?
Slocum says adios to one rotten ranchero… Tate McMahon owns just about every last inch of the town of Bedrock. And he’s fixin’ on buying up the few remaining bits before too long—including one right fine piece of land called the S Bar J, owned by a young widow named Becky Jamison. Once Tate gets his heart set on something, nothing on God’s green earth can keep him from grabbing hold of it… Except, maybe, the man who’s just arrived in Bedrock, a quickshooter named John Slocum. The fastest draw around, Slocum has his own brand of justice—and he’s going to see to it that Tate gets a taste of it at the S Bar J.
Experience a Sacred Way of Life For more than thirty years Dr. J. E. Williams has risked his health and personal safety to journey among shamans in Peru, the place he calls the mystical and spiritual center of our times. In its rain forests, mountains, and environmentally attuned indigenous population, Peru's mystical landscape fosters inner discovery. The Andean Codex guides the reader step by step through journeys to Andean sacred places like Machu Picchu, Cuzco, and Moray, and in the process uncovers the esoteric meaning of these ruins. Williams recounts his initiation with Peruvian shamans, including shamanic ceremonies he performed at Machu Picchu and his experiences using the mind-expanding, heart-opening ayahuasca and the sacred coca plant. Throughout these encounters, Williams weaves in practical advice that brings the wisdom of Andean shamans to life. His unforgettable account of their prayers, practices, and ceremonies offers a rare opportunity to see the world through the eyes of a shaman and experience the Andean sacred way.
