No Buddy Left Behind from the Author: Terri Crisp. No Buddy Left Behind unveils the life-altering relationships American troops serving in the Middle East have shared with the stray dogs and cats they've rescued from the brutalities of war. Overcoming monumental obstacles, Operation Baghdad Pups' program manager Terri Crisp makes it her mission to save these wartime “buddies,” get them out of danger, and bring them home to the soldiers who love them. How exactly does someone get animals out of a country at war when normal resources are lacking and every step of a plan to transport animals could get you arrested, kidnapped, or blown apart? As Crisp soon learns, each rescue mission from first to last is a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants experience, and no animal is truly safe until its paws touch U.S. soil. Terri and her team have saved the lives of 223 dogs and forty-two cats befriended by military personnel since February 2008—and No Buddy Left Behind finally tells this story.

Nobody Left Behind from the Author: Deanna Enos. "There is a great need for this book!" -Mary Allan, 2004 California Teacher of the Year Sometimes tests prove very little and somebody gets left behind even when they're thinking. Since standardized testing became a priority for schools, nine-year-old Jeffery Taylor's academic life has become pure torture. He suffers from a condition called test anxiety: when he takes a test, his stomach aches, his eyes hurt, he feels like his head is going to blow up, and, at times, he visibly trembles. Jeff's active imagination hasn't helped his success at school either-especially if he's drawing when he's supposed to be working on other subjects. But schoolwork is not his only problem. His classmate, Matt Huggins, is a real pest, and Jeff and his best friend, Terry, are growing apart. But Jeff is delighted when he meets a new friend who helps him to face his academic challenges. Testing is a tremendous issue in schools today. It can have a lasting effect on funding as schools balance the need to meet accountability standards with the desire to provide learning to students. But most importantly, it can result in test anxiety which has a lasting effect on children. In Nobody Left Behind, author Deanna Enos uses storytelling as an example of how to begin a dialogue between children, teachers, and parents concerning this important subject.

The Art Of Healing from the Author: Bernie S. Siegel. In 1979, Dr. Bernie S. Siegel, a successful surgeon, took a class from Elisabeth Kübler-Ross that focused on crayon drawing for healing, especially with patients facing life-threatening disease. Siegel incorporated into his practice these techniques — many of which were laughed at by others in the medical community. But his Exceptional Cancer Patients “carefrontation” protocol facilitated healings, often deemed miraculous, and attracted attention. “Dr. Bernie” discovered and shared the fact that while patients might need antibiotics, surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy, their bodies also want to heal. He found that this innate propensity could be aided by unconventional practices, including drawing. Why? Drawing produces symbols often representing the subconscious. Siegel shows how to interpret drawings to help with everything from understanding why we are sick to making treatment decisions and communicating with loved ones. All those facing ill health, and those caring for them, personally and professionally, will welcome the hands-on, patient-proven practices offered here.

2 At The Dome from the Author: Dylan Beckerman. Paul Westfield had left for the longest mission in NASA history, Magellan, the first manned mission past the orbit of Saturn and his son Casey was only ten years old. A mission long enough that internment into stasis was necessary. Shortly after the wake up call the Magellan mission went MIA, and Casey would be wondering what actually happened to his dad and that mission for a long time to come. Now Casey has become an astronaut himself and thanks to the discovery of a chamber inside the face on Mars, he has been chosen by the United World Space Agency to go on the most prolific mission in human history. 80,000 light years to the other side of the galaxy, to visit a society that predates humans by well over a billion years. With a tour guide to help, he has to remember as much as he can because its a one time offer to exist in a completely alien world, and then return with all his experiences and information. Then an opportunity arises and Casey feels he should roll the dice. Everything is not quite what it seems though, and Casey must survive the court appearance of a lifetime, along with making a decision that could reduce the human race to a footnote in the galactic history log.

In Visible War from the Author: Jon Simons. In/Visible War addresses a paradox of twenty-first century American warfare. The contemporary visual American experience of war is ubiquitous, and yet war is simultaneously invisible or absent; we lack a lived sense that “America” is at war. This paradox of in/visibility concerns the gap between the experiences of war zones and the visual, mediated experience of war in public, popular culture, which absents and renders invisible the former. Large portions of the domestic public experience war only at a distance. For these citizens, war seems abstract, or may even seem to have disappeared altogether due to a relative absence of visual images of casualties. Perhaps even more significantly, wars can be fought without sacrifice by the vast majority of Americans. Yet, the normalization of twenty-first century war also renders it highly visible. War is made visible through popular, commercial, mediated culture. The spectacle of war occupies the contemporary public sphere in the forms of celebrations at athletic events and in films, video games, and other media, coming together as MIME, the Military-Industrial-Media-Entertainment Network.
