For an enthusiastic, just-of-age coed, prepping for college requires sizzling, sensual summertime studies. Susan has just turned 18, and she's excited about starting college after the summer break. Just one thing tempers her excitement: her serious lack of experience with the opposite sex. Even in her innocence, she knows the boys from high school are nothing like the men awaiting her in college. Fitting in and being a proper coed demands doing a little homework. And, as in all areas of her life, Susan has every desire to excel. Looking forward to continuing the discussion about just how to carry out her summertime goal with her best friend Jessie, Susan's greeted by Jessie's older brother, John, at the door instead - who's a grad student himself. As Susan's invited inside, an obvious solution for her own personal dilemma strikes her: John must know exactly what's expected of college-age girls. Luckily for Susan, John's more than happy to help with her intimate request and offers himself as a patient tutor in the ways and methods of college extracurricular activities. Just inside John's old room, Susan eagerly learns one technique that's surprisingly just like licking a lollipop. She eats up her first lesson with the unmatched exuberance of a student quick to learn and excited to finally learn the answers to all her questions and curiosities. As the school year comes to an end and Susan later lavishes dressing up as a true woman for the senior prom, John arrives with the offer of a gentlemanly ride, complete with the treat of a short detour and the ultimate lesson in womanhood - right in his parked car. Susan feels all the thrills of being truly grownup under John's instruction and realizes just how much fun she has to look forward to as her college career begins. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Me.

Without a map, navigate by the stars. Susan Tweit began learning this lesson as a young woman diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that was predicted to take her life in two to five years. Offered no clear direction for getting well through conventional medicine, Tweit turned to the natural world that was both her solace and her field of study as a plant ecologist. Drawing intuitive connections between the natural processes and cycles she observed and the functions of her body, Tweit not only learned healthier ways of living but also discovered a great truth - love can heal. In this beautifully written, moving memoir, she describes how love of the natural world, of her husband and family, and of life itself literally transformed and saved her own life.In tracing the arc of her life from young womanhood to middle age, Tweit tells stories about what silence and sagebrush, bird bones and sheep dogs, comets, death, and one crazy Englishman have to teach us about living. She celebrates making healthy choices, the inner voices she learned to hear on days alone in the wilderness, the joys of growing and eating an organic kitchen garden, and the surprising redemption in restoring a once-blighted neighborhood creek. Linking her life lessons to the stories she learned in childhood about the constellations, Tweit shows how qualities such as courage, compassion, and inspiration draw us together and bind us into the community of the land and of all living things. The book is published by University of Texas Press. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Susan J. Tweit. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/redw/000129/bk_redw_000129_sample.mp3.
