Getting Here From There from the Author: Margaret R. Miles. This book of conversations between Margaret R. Miles and Hiroko Sakomura compares the experiences of two women who grew up in different societies, with different educations, different professions, and different religious orientations. Reflecting on the ways in which Japanese and American societies inhibited and enabled them, these two women share their struggles, difficulties, and achievements. All of this is set in the context of the feminist movement, one of the most radical social movements in the twentieth century, as women are gaining increments of equality with men in designing and administering the institutions of public life with opportunities, dangers, and rewards. This is a moment in which a critical mass of women 'want it all now' in the best sense of the phrase, seeking to preserve and reinterpret traditional values while exercising their capabilities and skills both in the home and in public life. This book is the memoir of two women's painful and joyful experiences in 'getting here from there'.

Getting Here from the Author: William White Howells. Three individuals left footprints in East Africa 3.7 million years ago. Walking upright on human feet, they had crossed a threshold in the long path of their evolution from vertebrates, mammals and primates to enter and dominate a new world. They were not alone. Others, related and descended in ways not entirely clear, spread out, flourished and disappeared; some became the people of today. Although we know a great deal of the story and new information is arriving ever more rapidly, there is still more to be learned about where, when and how our ancestors became us. We do know that we arrived not because we were inevitable, but by luck and happenstance along the way. And we know there were other kinds of humans who co-existed with each other and who might be here today but are not. Now updated and revised to reflect the latest findings and their implications, renowned anthropologist, author, and educator, William Howells draws together here the latest from all today's sciences to tell the fascinating stories of our evolution.

He falls in love and realises that's what he's been looking for all his life, but there is work to do. He is now Don Quixote, the character Cervantes saw four hundred years ago, and he must slay the evil giants before he is worthy of the fair Dulcinea. But they are many. Though Don Quixote is not alone - there have been forces guiding him, giving him strength all his life, way outside our comprehension, and they're getting stronger... ...and so is he.

I Had To Go There To Get Here from the Author: Phyllis Ames-Bey. My book, "I Had To Go There To Get Here-It Is What It Is" consist of a compilation of prayers, poems, poetry, prose, songs and lyrics written over a course of 43 years of my life about what I experienced in life. The book is a very inspirational book. There are three hundred and thirty two pages of such experiences.The contents consist of an open letter to my son, my testimony, petitions to GOD, side titled poems, poems about deceased people, poems about my associates, poems about suicidal thoughts, the inner me poetry and poems, poems about companions, inspirational hymns, ballads and rap songs in which tunes are available for some, and finally prayers to GOD. The book could really be a goldmine for people who are looking for lyrics to set to songs or to use as poetry on greeting cards among other ideas. Although some of the experiences were negative such as agoraphobia, paranoid schizophrenia, homelessness and caring for an artistic family member, I felt it good therapy to write about my life challenges and experiences in hopes of helping others.
