(Based on actual events) Dave was a corporate exec on the brink of a nervous breakdown from his job. So, when his friend Rachel asked him to go with her on a camping adventure into the wilderness of the Badlands, Yellowstone, and Grand Teton National Parks, he agreed to go with her. The only catch was, she would be bringing seven developmentally challenged adults with her. She said she only needed him to back the trailer in for her at the campsites, and to help teach camping skills. But he knew deep down that there was more to this than a simple camping trip. He had little experience in dealing with those with special needs and wasn't sure what he would do if one of them wanted to run off to pet a pretty grizzly bear. However, he knew from past hiking and camping experiences that nature could restore him back to some sort of sanity and this is what eventually convinced him to go with them. Join Dave on his excursion and discover how nature and seven developmentally challenged vacationers transformed his life. You will laugh and perhaps cry, but you will never forget this story and the characters involved. Don Nordstrom is also the author of the very popular book, "The Binary Effects of God."

This book is about the Paranormal experiences that myself, two of my cousins, and our best friend had when we were teenagers. I had been exposed to a supernatural encounter when I was 5 years old, I was playing on the back porch at my Grandparents house, at a desk that my Grandmother had set up for her to use. I was sitting at the desk while my Mother helped my Grandmother in the kitchen, the back porch was just off from the kitchen, so they both could see me from the kitchen. I was writing in a notebook and I heard a pen or pencil roll off of the desk, I get out of the chair to see if I could find it, and as soon as I stoop to look under the desk, I clearly hear a mans voice say "Shoot". I was terrified and ran through the kitchen screaming. But that was nothing like what I would encounter as I got older. This book is based on our experiences with paranormal phenomenon. There is one incidence that is in the book that I would like to talk about here. All of the experiences that we had were frightening, but this one stands out in my mind. This particular incident scared me really bad, because I had never seen anything like it in my life. Nicholas was home alone and decided to go to the store to get cigarettes, he locked the door before he left and when he returned, he walked into a frightening scene. He unlocked the front door and walked in the living room to find all of the pictures on the wall turning in circles. There were at least thirty pictures in all, and every single one spinning on the wall. He ran to my cousins house, and told us what he had returned home to find. We decide to walk back over to his house. When we got there, Gwen opened the front door and screamed. We run up behind her to look into the house and what I saw sent chills down my spine. As Nicholas had said, every picture was spinning on the wall. We walk into the living room and Gabriella, Gwens sister, walks over to the pictures and looks behind them and they are spinning in mid air, theyre not hanging on anything. When she tells us, we ran out of the house. Just remembering this gives me chills.

Canoe and Camp Cookery

A Practical Cook Book for Canoeists, Corinthian Sailors, and Outers

Published in 1885 in New York, Canoe and Camp Cookery by well-known outdoor writer Henry H. Soule is one of the earliest outdoor cookbooks published. Focused on practical recipes for simple but filling meals, the cookbook has two sections: one for the modern-day version of a backpacker, emphasizing light weight and ease of transportation; and the other for the more settled camper, describing more elaborate meals that can be fixed outdoors. Entries include: The Canoeist’s “Grab Box,” Fish Caught in Muddy Streams, Potatoes and Green Corn, Go Light as Possible, Brown Betty, and General Remarks on Cooking Soups. Soule compiled the majority of the recipes from outdoor enthusiasts of the time: hunters, trappers, and army men, but actually tested each recipe himself during his own outdoor adventures. This edition of Canoe and Camp Cookery was reproduced by permission from the volume in the collection of the American Antiquarian Society, Worcester, Massachusetts. Founded in 1812 by Isaiah Thomas, a Revolutionary War patriot and successful printer and publisher, the Society is a research library documenting the life of Americans from the colonial era through 1876. The Society collects, preserves, and makes available as complete a record as possible of the printed materials from the early American experience. The cookbook collection includes approximately 1,100 volumes.

From “the Kid” on the Varsity Blues football team to “the Chief” at Osgoode Hall, R. Roy McMurtry has had a remarkably varied and influential career.

These memoirs cover all these facets of his remarkable career, as well as his law practice, his work on various commissions of inquiry, and his reflections on family, sport, and art. This volume is both an account of his life in public service and a portrait of a humane, humorous, still optimistic, and always decent man.

This is the story of my lifeat least its first 70 years. I am writing it so that my three children and my three granddaughters may know something about my background and theirs. It is the type of book I wish my parents had written, as there is so much about their lives I do not know but sincerely wish I did. Since I am telling this tale, much depends on my memory of events, my interpretation of them, and the details of those I select to include as well as those left out. I have tried to be candid and accurate and honest, to include some of the good (of which there is much) and some of the not so good (of which, fortunately, there is much less). I hope that those who read these pages will find some information to interest them and some that is new that will add to their understanding.
