In Spirit of Earth, author Kirsty E. Green shares her spiritual journey as a healer through the forests in her home state of Victoria. Many visions of earth mother were presented through meditation and reflection as she travelled through the various landscapes and experienced the spirit of earth. This included meetings with mountain divas, elementals, animal totems and sacred spirit energy. Green tells how she was guided and pulled toward meetings with animal totem energies during her spiritual quest for healing and merging with lost parts of the self. Green narrates how, through quiet and reverent practice, you, too, can surrender to a timeless quality of conscious awareness and deep peace that is your birthright. From this deep peace, you can reawaken and redirect your potential. She reminds you of the fragile state of rich ecosystems and the abundance in many forms of life within old growth forests. A thoughtful summary of a fascinating and ongoing deep relationship with sacred Mother Earth, Spirit of Earth alerts you to the sacred treaty of unconditional love and protection of forest and ocean areas that are essential to survival of all life on this planet.

Ender's Shadow explores the stars in this all-new novel... At the end of Shadow of the Giant, Bean flees to the stars with three of his children--the three who share the engineered genes that gave him both hyper-intelligence and a short, cruel physical life. The time dilation granted by the speed of their travel gives Earth's scientists generations to seek a cure, to no avail. In time, they are forgotten--a fading ansible signal speaking of events lost to Earth's history. But the Delphikis are about to make a discovery that will let them save themselves, and perhaps all of humanity in days to come. For there in space before them lies a derelict Formic colony ship. Aboard it, they will find both death and wonders--the life support that is failing on their own ship, room to grow, and labs in which to explore their own genetic anomaly and the mysterious disease that killed the ship's colony. Shadows in Flight is the fifth novel in Orson Scott Card's Shadow Series.

Thousands of years before Zebulon Pike's name became attached to this famous mountain, Pikes Peak was home to indigenous people. These First Nations left no written record of their sojourn here, but what they did leave were stone circles, carefully crafted arrowheads and stone tools, enigmatic petroglyphs, and culturally scarred trees. In the 1500s, Spanish explorers documented their locations, language, and numbers. In the 1800s, mountain men and official explorers such as Pike, Fremont, and Long also wrote about these First Nations. Comanche, Apache, Arapaho, Cheyenne, Kiowa, and Lakota made incursions into the region. These nations contested Ute land possession, harvested the abundant wildlife, and paid homage to the powerful spirits at Garden of the Gods and Manitou Springs. Today Ute Indians return to Garden of the Gods and to Pikes Peak each year to perform their sacred Sundance Ceremony.
