With a kidney transplant behind her, Avery Adams is determined to channel her inner adventurer and explore everything life has to offer. Only problem is, the closest she's ever come to a real-life adventure was sixth-grade science camp. So to seize the summer in her rustic Sierra Nevada town, she takes a job as a guide at the local adventure lodge. But Avery doesn't realize her biggest challenge will register at six-plus feet of rugged good looks and alpha-male charm. As a member of the Sequoia Elite Mountain Rescue team, Tyson Donovan has made a life out of cheating death and rescuing weekend warriors from the treacherous terrain. "The world is my home" is more than just a motto; it's what scares off women who would otherwise try to tie him down. When his dad's health lands the family's adventure lodge in serious danger of going up in flames, he moves home - and quickly remembers why he left. Until he meets Avery, the irresistible new guide who makes him want to stay. Tyson gives the inexperienced Avery a lesson in romance that her books could never teach her. And with her undeniable spirit for life, Avery shows Tyson the healing power of love. But with one misstep, everything comes crashing down, and they'll both have to take the biggest leap of all - into the kind of adventure that lasts a lifetime. 1. Language: English.

From International Best-SElling Erotic Romance Author Sierra Cartwright"Even racier than Fifty Shades." (Mail Online)"Cartwright’s writing is wonderful. The words flow easily, and as with earlier books I was seduced into the world she creates. Also, as I’ve mentioned in other reviews, she has a knack of teaching about the BDSM lifestyle through her books without detracting from the erotic, without making it seem like an actual lesson. Everything seems natural and the story rolls effortlessly." (Long and Short Reviews)Book six in the Mastered series. What could be headier than the surrender of a powerfully dominant woman? Dom Damien Lowell has always respected Domme Catrina Davidson. He likes the way she interacts with her subs - confident, kind, firm. And for years he’s fantasized about her submitting to him. What could be hotter than having the sexy Domme squirming beneath his lash? One evening, Damien challenges her, saying she’d be a much better Domme if she experienced submission...to him. Catrina doesn’t have a single submissive tendency. But she’s oh so turned on when she watches a sub respond to Damien. A secret part of her is intrigued, and she asks herself, what harm can come from giving him two weeks? Over the next fortnight, she is introduced to the pleasures and perils of servitude. She has to admit that he’s right - her understanding of submission is deeper, more profound, than it would have been otherwise. But the private experiences they share in the Den leave her emotionally shattered, making her question everything she thought she knew. In her unique way, Catrina too challenges Damien, forcing him to grow as a Dom, and he wonders how the hell he’ll ever be able to let her go. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Leo Barnabas.

Yosemite Valley, to me, is always a sunrise, a glitter of green and golden wonder in a vast edifice of stone and space. (Ansel Adams) "Some of the natural world is appealing, some of it is terrifying, and some of it grosses us out. Modern people don't want to be dropped naked into a swamp. We want to tour Yosemite with our water bottles and G.P.S. devices. The natural world is a source of happiness and fulfillment, but only when prescribed in the right doses." (Paul Bloom) "If for a moment you are inclined to regard these taluses as mere draggled, chaotic dumps, climb to the top of one of them, and run down without any haggling, puttering hesitation, boldly jumping from boulder to boulder with even speed. You will then find your feet playing a tune, and quickly discover the music and poetry of these magnificent rock piles - a fine lesson; and all Nature's wildness tells the same story - the shocks and outbursts of earthquakes, volcanoes, geysers, roaring, thundering waves and floods, the silent uprush of sap in plants, storms of every sort - each and all are the orderly beauty-making love-beats of Nature's heart." (John Muir) The United States is full of natural wonders, but few remain unspoiled by man as much as Yosemite National Park: a 750,000-square-acre park near the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Despite being inhabited by people for nearly 3,000 years, the relatively remote spot helped ensure that even as America expanded west, the Yosemite area avoided being settled or exploited like so many other areas on the frontier. 1.

This study aims to understand how the nineteenth-century African agent of mission appropriated change without losing cultural integrity. Drawing essentially from the contexts that produced the man, from Sierra Leone to the Yoruba country, the study shows Samuel Johnson as embodying the opportunities and ambivalence that progressively accompanied Yoruba contact with Britain in the people's war-weary century of change. Largely influenced by German missionaries in the British mission environment of Yorubaland, Johnson had confidence in the bright prospect the missionary message held for his people. This propelled him into a struggle to relieve the distressed country from its woes and to preserve the fading memory of its people. In an age of renewed cultural ferment called globalization, could Johnson offer a lesson in how to appropriate change? This is the concern of this volume.
Variable winds carry the stench of burned flesh up to the promontory where I, General José María Rangel, sit atop my nervous horse. It occurs to me that the smell is not unlike that of an asado I sampled in Buenos Aires some years ago. Meat, after all, is meat, whether animal or human. From time to time the animal beneath me shies and dances when a rolling cloud reaches high enough to engulf us. Below, the village of Tomóchic smolders, nearly leveled. The last stronghold was the church. I see smoke billowing out of its windows and around the steeple, signaling the end of the last of them, as if they could win a challenge against me and my mission to rid the north of insurgent vermin. No, we will not honor the village corpses. Those not incinerated will be left to rot. It will be a lesson. Another lesson. * * * Tomóchic Blood At the turn of the nineteenth century, each of the countries of North America--Canada, the United States and Mexico--determined to crush opposition throughout their lands with military force, if need be. InManitoba, Louis Riel, the leader of the Métis, was hanged in 1885. The massacre by the US Cavalry of the Sioux at Wounded Knee in the Dakotas took place in 1890. And in the Sierra Madre of Mexico, the village of Tomóchic in Chihuahua was razed by federal troops in 1892. The Métis, the Indians, and the Mestizos incurred the wrath of their governments by defying attempts make them surrender their lands, their cultures, and their autonomy. There were survivors, however, those who escaped the devastation and those who are descendants and relatives of the victims. The spirit of self-determination yet lives among them. This is a story of one lone writer and teacher who did not abandon the demand for justice.
Like thousands of other pioneers the families who were part of the 1846 Donner-Reed wagon train headed west in search of new opportunities. But this group instead found untold hardship and an immortal place in the annals of Western history. Terry Del Bene, a retired archaelogist, puts an interesting spin on the tale of the ill-fated Donner Party expedition. Documenting the historic wagon trip across America to the untimely fate met by the travelers in the high Sierra Nevada Mountains of California, Del Bene provides the reader with not only a history lesson but also recipes of the day. Del Bene shares his knowledge of 19th century foods and cooking methods, and adds some ideas for hosting your own Donner party event. This is an informative and entertaining look at the food and cooking methods used by those early American travelers.
