Its Head Came Off By Accident from the Author: Muffy Mead-Ferro. Its Head Came Off by Accident is a humorous, yet poignant reflection on gratitude and loss. It describes a childhood that takes place on a vast Wyoming landscape--more than 6,000 acres near near Jackson Hole and adjacent to Grand Teton National Park--where the author grew up with adventure-crazed, raucous brothers and friends, and a colorful collection of Western characters, most particularly her own mother. Mead-Ferro's desire to move back to her childhood homeland from the city is weighed with how she felt when she did live on the cattle ranch, always unsure if she fit in. When Mead-Ferro's mother is killed in a freak horse accident while herding cattle, Mead-Ferro faces the loss not only of this profoundly influential person but of the entire ranching operation: a century-old legacy. After she and her brothers sell the family ranch Mead-Ferro attempts to recreate the landscape of her childhood--particularly the privileges and responsibilities of land, animals, and real work--as a bequest to her own children.

Traditions Of The Bible from the Author: James L. KUGEL. James Kugel's The Bible As It Was (1997) has been welcomed with universal praise. Here now is the full scholarly edition of this wonderfully rich and illuminating work, expanding the author's findings into an incomparable reference work. Focusing on two dozen core stories in the Pentateuch--from the Creation and Tree of Knowledge through the Exodus from Egypt and journey to the Promised Land--James Kugel shows us how the earliest interpreters of the scriptures radically transformed the Bible and made it into the book that has come down to us today. Kugel explains how and why the writers of this formative age of interpretation--roughly 200 B.C.E. to 150 C.E.--assumed such a significant role. Mining their writings--including the Dead Sea Scrolls, works of Philo and Josephus and letters of the Apostle Paul, and writings of the Apostolic Fathers and the rabbinic Sages--he quotes for us the seminal passages that uncover this crucial interpretive process. For this full-scale reference work Kugel has added a substantial treasury of sources and passages for each of the 24 Bible stories. It will serve as a unique guide and sourcebook for biblical interpretation.

Jaws 2 Book Bundle Jaws And Shark Trouble from the Author: Peter Benchley. This eBook bundle includes two acclaimed books by Peter Benchley: Jaws, the classic suspense novel—with bonus content—that inspired the blockbuster Steven Spielberg movie, and Shark Trouble, a fascinating nonfiction chronicle of Benchley’s thrilling diving adventures and heart-stopping encounters as he met and studied sharks in their natural habitats for more than thirty years. JAWS “Powerful . . . [Benchley’s] story grabs you at once.”—The New York Times Book Review When Peter Benchley wrote Jaws in the early 1970s, he meticulously researched all available data about shark behavior. Over the ensuing decades, Benchley was actively engaged with scientists and filmmakers on expeditions around the world as they expanded their knowledge of sharks. Also during this time, there was an unprecedented upswing in the number of sharks killed to make shark-fin soup, and Benchley worked with governments and nonprofits to sound the alarm for shark conservation. He encouraged each new generation of Jaws fans to enjoy his riveting tale and to channel their excitement into support and protection of these magnificent, prehistoric apex predators. This edition of Jaws contains bonus content from Peter Benchley’s archives, including the original typed title page, a brainstorming list of possible titles, a letter from Benchley to producer David Brown with honest feedback on the movie adaptation, and vivid photos of scenes from the 1974 film production on Martha’s Vineyard. SHARK TROUBLE “A serious beach book—part real-life underwater adventure, part cautionary tale on the environment, part practical advice on staying safe on the ocean.”—USA Today In this book of true stories and life-saving advice, Benchley clarifies the myths and realities about sharks, shark attacks, and safety on the seas. He draws on more than three decades of experience in and under the sea to share exciting personal adventures with sharks, to offer intriguing facts about the sea and its wildlife, and, most important, to help readers understand the ocean and approach it with knowledge, security, and respect.
