The Days Of The Deer from the Author: Liliana Bodoc. It is known that the strangers will sail from some part of the Ancient Lands and will cross the Yentru Sea. All our predictions and sacred books clearly say the same thing. The rest is all shadows. Shadows that prevent us from seeing the faces of those who are coming. In the House of Stars, the Astronomers of the Open Air read contradictory omens. A fleet is coming to the shores of the Remote Realm. But are these the long-awaited Northmen, returned triumphant from the war in the Ancient Lands? Or the emissaries of the Son of Death come to wage a last battle against life itself? From every village of the seven tribes, a representative is called to a Great Council. One representative will not survive the journey. Some will be willing to sacrifice their lives, others their people, but one thing is certain: the era of light is at an end.

Days Of Deer Stalking In The Scottish Highlands from the Author: William Scrope. PREFACE. THE Author of this very practical treatise on Scotch Loch - Fishing desires clearly that it may be of use to all who had it. He does not pretend to have written anything new, but to have attempted to put what he has to say in as readable a form as possible. Everything in the way of the history and habits of fish has been studiously avoided, and technicalities have been used as sparingly as possible. The writing of this book has afforded him pleasure in his leisure moments, and that pleasure would be much increased if he knew that the perusal of it would create any bond of sympathy between himself and the angling community in general. This section is interleaved with blank shects for the readers notes. The Author need hardly say that any suggestions addressed to the case of the publishers, will meet with consideration in a future edition. We do not pretend to write or enlarge upon a new subject. Much has been said and written-and well said and written too on the art of fishing but loch-fishing has been rather looked upon as a second-rate performance, and to dispel this idea is one of the objects for which this present treatise has been written. Far be it from us to say anything against fishing, lawfully practised in any form but many pent up in our large towns will bear us out when me say that, on the whole, a days loch-fishing is the most convenient. One great matter is, that the loch-fisher is depend- ent on nothing but enough wind to curl the water, -and on a large loch it is very seldom that a dead calm prevails all day, -and can make his arrangements for a day, weeks beforehand whereas the stream- fisher is dependent for a good take on the state of the water and however pleasant and easy it may be for one living near the banks of a good trout stream or river, it is quite another matter to arrange for a days river-fishing, if one is looking forward to a holiday at a date some weeks ahead. Providence may favour the expectant angler with a good day, and the water in order but experience has taught most of us that the good days are in the minority, and that, as is the case with our rapid running streams, -such as many of our northern streams are, -the water is either too large or too small, unless, as previously remarked, you live near at hand, and can catch it at its best. A common belief in regard to loch-fishing is, that the tyro and the experienced angler have nearly the same chance in fishing, -the one from the stern and the other from the bow of the same boat. Of all the absurd beliefs as to loch-fishing, this is one of the most absurd. Try it. Give the tyro either end of the boat he likes give him a cast of ally flies he may fancy, or even a cast similar to those which a crack may be using and if he catches one for every three the other has, he may consider himself very lucky. Of course there are lochs where the fish are not abundant, and a beginner may come across as many as an older fisher but we speak of lochs where there are fish to be caught, and where each has a fair chance. Again, it is said that the boatman has as much to do with catching trout in a loch as the angler. Well, we dont deny that. In an untried loch it is necessary to have the guidance of a good boatman but the same argument holds good as to stream-fishing...

The Deer And The Tiger from the Author: George B. Schaller. The Deer and the Tiger is Schaller's detailed account of the ecology and behavior of Bengal tigers and four species of the hoofed mammals on which they prey, based on his observations in India's Kanha National Park. "This book is a treasure house of biological information and it is also a delight to read. . . . Excellent phoographs accompany the text."—Robert K. Enders, American Scientist "The one book that has been my greatest source of inspiration is The Deer and the Tiger by George Schaller, based on the first ever scientific field study of the tiger. . . . This book is written by a scientist, but speaks from the heart. . . . It reveals startling information on feeding habitats, territorial behaviour, and the nuances that make up the language of the forest; you become totally immersed in the world of the tiger. . . . For all of us who work in tiger conservation, this book is the bible."—Valmik Thapar, BBC Wildlife

People Of The Deer from the Author: Farley Mowat. In 1886, the Ihalmiut people of northern Canada numbered seven thousand; by 1946, when Farley Mowat began his two-year stay in the Arctic, the population had fallen to just forty. With them, he observed for the first time the phenomenon that would inspire him for the rest of his life: the millennia-old migration of the Arctic's caribou herds. He also endured bleak, interminable winters, suffered agonizing shortages of food, and witnessed the continual, devastating intrusions of outsiders bent on exploitation. Here, in this classic and first book to demonstrate the mammoth literary talent that would produce some of the most memorable books of the next half-century, best-selling author Farley Mowat chronicles his harrowing experiences. People of the Deer is the lyrical ethnography of a beautiful and endangered society. It is a mournful reproach to those who would manipulate and destroy indigenous cultures throughout the world. Most of all, it is a tribute to the last People of the Deer, the diminished Ihalmiuts, whose calamitous encounter with our civilization resulted in their unnecessary demise.

In The Days Of Coronado from the Author: Jonathan Kensett. Dear reader, the first novel of this series is titled OHIO. And, maybe you are on your computer right now, trying to decide whether or not to purchase it. Maybe you are in a bookstore and holding it in your hands; you have studied its cover, you've already read the opening lines, and you've flipped to the middle and read something there. Maybe you have read the last paragraph. Maybe you have done the same with all three novels. Dear reader, the novels are not for you, unless you possess the desire to listen with all your heart to the words you will find in them. If this desire is yours, I, Jonathan Kensett, welcome you into a world I could not have known if I had not listened with all my heart, as well, that fateful evening when I had dinner with Abby Vredenburgh in Sunbury, Ohio. That night the real journey began for me. Dear reader, I would invite you to journey with me through OHIO, and then to continue the journey through IN THE DAYS OF CORONADO and TERRAM NOVAM. After you have read the first three there are more. NOWHERE, soon to be released is the story of a ghost town in Southeast Utah, but it is much more than just a story about a ghost town. ROSE OF SHARON 1896-1974, also soon to be released, is the story of a little town in Northern Ohio established in 1866 in the novel OHIO; it is the story of the town seen through the eyes of three generations of another family, and it too is much more than a story about a small town. And, the next novel in the series, THE SIX POINTS OF THE STAR, is still a shadowy sketch inside my mind. But, it can't remain a sketch for much longer. Sometimes I wish I had never gone to Ohio to observe that Civil War Battlefield Reenactment of the Battle of Second Bull Run and to write that series of articles for Stars and Stripes Magazine. Sometimes I wish I had not met Abby Vredenburgh, may he rest in peace. Sometimes I wish I had not gone to New Mexico and found what I found on the mesa. Sometimes I look into the mirror and wish so many things could have been different. I wish I would not have to think about certain things like war and death, like pain and loss and grief, and deception and betrayal. I wish life could be free of such things. I long for redemption and freedom from suffering. I long for a world where nothing is hidden because there is no reason to hide. And, I long for the day when this story is finished but the more I write the more I understand it can never be finished until... Jonathan Kensett was born in 1952 and spent his youth traveling and living in many, many places on planet earth. At age seventeen, he lied to get into the U.S. Army, was sent to Viet Nam and served in Company D, 1st Battalion, 501st Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, 1969-1970. After that, he went to Harvard and earned degrees in journalism and law. He has not practiced law, choosing instead to be a free-lance writer. He will always wonder if he made the right choice. Now that he is too old to change he might as well try to enjoy every day as much as possible. No one writes like him. No one.
