The need to outgrow one's childhood influences and establish an individual identity is common to us all, but for Christopher Milne it was an especially difficult experience in view of the unique problems he faced as the son of A. A. Milne. In this warm, honest, and often amusing autobiography, he traces the path which, after several wrong turnings, ultimately led him and his wife, Lesley, to establish the successful Harbour Bookshop in Dartmouth - a path which led not to spectacular achievements, but to modest success and contentment. Wise, humble, and philosophical, The Path Through the Trees is Christopher Milne's search as a young man for his own place in life, told with the same sincerity and vividness that distinguished his first book, The Enchanted Places.

The Santa Fe River in Santa Fe, New Mexico was named Most Endangered River in America in 2007. This richly illustrated collection is a literary response to that designation, a work that “re-stories” the river, bringing it back to life in the hearts and minds of the Santa Fe community. It’s no secret that the river—a dry wasteland for most of the year—is imperiled. Less well known is the real story of the Santa Fe River, its remarkable history, and how it can be saved. The Return of the River includes the words of writers and poets, historians, artists, and ecologists who eloquently and passionately celebrate a living river. The result is a convergence of landscape, community, and creativity that recognizes the interdependence of all three. In a time when the planet faces unparalleled threats, The Return of the River is a testament to the belief that the most damaged places can be healed, and that ordinary voices can be the agent of that change. The book includes a foreword by David Coss, Mayor of Santa Fe at the time of the publication of this book, and contributions from Jack Loeffler, Valerie Martínez, Frances Levine, Arthur Sze, Luci Tapahonso, Miriam Sagan, Fernando Garavito, Melinda Romero Pike, George Johnson, David Groenfeldt, and twenty-four others.

Along the years, rough set theory has earned a well-deserved reputation as a sound methodology for dealing with imperfect knowledge in a simple though mathematically sound way. This edited volume aims at continue stressing the benefits of applying rough sets in many real-life situations while still keeping an eye on topological aspects of the theory as well as strengthening its linkage with other soft computing paradigms. The volume comprises 11 chapters and is organized into three parts. Part 1 deals with theoretical contributions while Parts 2 and 3 focus on several real world data mining applications. Chapters authored by pioneers were selected on the basis of fundamental ideas/concepts rather than the thoroughness of techniques deployed. Academics, scientists as well as engineers working in the rough set, computational intelligence, soft computing and data mining research area will find the comprehensive coverage of this book invaluable.
