How To Walk A Puma from the Author: Peter Allison. MORE THRILLING ADVENTURES WITH THE WORLD'S FAVOURITE SAFARI GUIDE 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. Not content with regular encounters with dangerous animals on one continent, Peter Allison decided to get up close and personal with some seriously scary animals on another. Unlike in Africa, where all Peter's experiences had been safari based, he planned to vary things up in South America, getting involved with conservation projects as well as seeking out "the wildest and rarest wildlife experiences on offer". From learning to walk - or rather be bitten and dragged along at speed by - a puma in Bolivia, to searching for elusive jaguars in Brazil, 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 his adventures and misadventures in South America.

2077 from the Author: J. L. Sears. The Knights of Peace must defeat those inflicting violence on a peaceful society, but their code forbids them to cause personal injury. Their mission is to intercept and destroy all forms of weaponry, explosives, and ammunition worldwide. As Roscoe Finley joins the Knights and embarks on his first mission he sees how belligerent groups are disabled by destroying their ordnance and arresting the ‘dominophiles’ who lead them. ‘Sociodynamics’, GM bees, spyflies, countenance cognition, martial arts and holographic figures are used in defeating the enemy without inflicting injury. However, Roscoe learns from Father James that spiritual enlightenment is the only way to lasting peace. At the same time, Roscoe is confronted with a very different kind of conflict, as fellow novice Eric Reed competes for the attention of Isla, an expert in the breaking of quantum codes. The love triangle is broken as a fourth person appears… Meanwhile, the Servants of the Seven Seals, a religious cult, threatens to bring about its own heretical version of the End Times, and the Knights can’t stop it without help from an unlikely agent. This is a gripping tale of adventure and romance in a futuristic setting interwoven with spiritual reflection.

Internal Migration In The United States from the Author: Raven Molloy. This report reviews patterns in migration within the U.S. over the past thirty years. Internal migration has fallen noticeably since the 1980s, reversing increases from earlier in the century. The decline in migration has been widespread across demographic and socioeconomic groups, as well as for moves of all distances. Although a convincing explanation for the secular decline in migration remains elusive and requires further research, the authors find only limited roles for the housing market contraction and the economic recession in reducing migration recently. Despite its downward trend, migration within the U.S. remains higher than that within most other developed countries. Charts and tables. This is a print on demand report.

Die Insel Des Dr Moreau from the Author: H. G. Wells. Wells’ vielleicht visionärste Roman – Was unterscheidet den Menschen vom Tier? Wie weit darf Wissenschaft gehen? Wie leben wir mit den Konsequenzen? Ein wahnsinniger Chirurg betreibt auf einer abgelegenen Insel abscheuliche Experimente: Er kreuzt Tiere mit Menschen. Doch irgendwann drohen seine Kreaturen sich gegen ihn zu wenden. Mehrmals verfilmt hat diese Geschichte Generationen von Lesern in ihren Bann geschlagen. Niemals zuvor und auch selten danach gelang es einem Autor, die unheilvollen Ergebnisse skrupellosen, wissenschaftlichen Handelns so eindrucksvoll zu schildern. »Sie waren bereit, die Tiere mitzunehmen.« »Ich wollt’, mir wär’ Ihre höllische Insel nie vor Augen gekommen. Was zum Teufel … brauchen Sie Tiere für so eine Insel? Und dann Ihr Mann da … Wohlverstanden, wenn er ’n Mann war. Er ist ’n Verrückter. Und er hatte hinten nichts zu suchen. Meinen Sie, das ganze Satansschiff gehört Ihnen?« »Ihre Leute begannen den armen Teufel zu quälen, sowie er an Bord kam.« »Er ist ’n Teufel, ’n häßlicher Teufel. Meine Leute können ihn nicht ausstehen. Ich kann ihn nicht ausstehn. Keiner von uns kann ihn ausstehn. Und Sie auch nicht.« Montgomery wandte sich ab. »Sie lassen den Mann auf jeden Fall in Ruhe«, sagte er und nickte beim Sprechen mit dem Kopf.
