The lucky ones who managed to escape to the moon could only watch helplessly as the rogue planet Lycos slammed into Earth. As fate would have it, they were the future of humankind, with visions of rebuilding the human race on Europa, a distant moon of Jupiter. But in an attempt to mold this new world in his own image, the psychotic moon base leader, Soren, commandeers the ship for his select few and abandons those who might resist his unique vision of their future - condemning them to certain death. Left behind on the moon with a handful of desperate survivors and dwindling resources, Tess Robinson, a rising star in NASA with a troubled past, is thrust into a position where she must make peace with her ghosts if they are to survive. Now, in a frantic race against time and unimaginable odds, they must return to the broken earth if they hope to make the journey to Europa; but they must survive not only the final destructive forces unleashed on the planet, but the barbaric survivors they left behind.

“The longtime chronicler of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula . . . gives eloquent expression to death and the grieving process.” —Booklist Hailed by The New York Times Book Review as “a master . . . who makes the ordinary extraordinary, the unnamable unforgettable,” beloved author Jim Harrison returns with a masterpiece—a tender, profound, and magnificent novel about life, death, and finding redemption in unlikely places. Donald is a middle-aged Chippewa-Finnish man slowly dying of Lou Gehrig’s Disease. His condition deteriorating, he realizes no one will be able to pass on to his children their family history once he is gone. He begins dictating to his wife, Cynthia, stories he has never shared with anyone as around him, his family struggles to lay him to rest with the same dignity with which he has lived. Over the course of the year following Donald’s death, his daughter begins studying Chippewa ideas of death for clues about her father’s religion, while Cynthia, bereft of the family she created to escape the malevolent influence of her own father, finds that redeeming the past is not a lost cause. Returning to Earth is a deeply moving book about origins and endings, making sense of loss, and living with honor for the dead. It is among the finest novels of Harrison’s long, storied career, and confirms his standing as one of the most important American writers. “A deeply felt meditation on life and death, nature and God, this is one of Harrison’s finest works.” —Library Journal

For thirty-five years and through thirteen editions, Jim Henslin's Down to Earth Sociology has opened new windows onto the social realities that shape our world. Now in its fourteenth edition, the most popular anthology in sociology includes new articles on our changing world while also retaining its classic must-read essays. Focusing on social interaction in everyday life, the forty-six selections bring students face-to-face with the twin projects of contemporary sociology: understanding the individual's experience of society and analyzing social structure. The fourteenth edition's exceptional new readings include selections on the role of sympathy in everyday life, mistaken perceptions of the American family, the effects of a criminal record on getting a job, and the major social trends affecting our future. Together with these essential new articles, the selections by Peter Berger, Herbert Gans, Erving Goffman, Donna Eder, Zella Luria, C. Wright Mills, Deborah Tannen, Barrie Thorne, Sidney Katz, Philip Zimbardo, and many others provide firsthand reporting that gives students a sense of "being there." Henslin also explains basic methods of social research, providing insight into how sociologists explore the social world. The selections in Down to Earth Sociology highlight the most significant themes of contemporary sociology, ranging from the sociology of gender, power, politics, and religion to the contemporary crises of racial tension, crime, rape, poverty, and homelessness.

This is the story of a young man's struggle to stay afloat. By turns poignant and comic, Paul Auster's memoir is essentially an autobiographical essay about money--and what it means not to have it. From one odd job to the next, from one failed scheme to another, Auster investigates his own stubborn compulsion to make art and describes his ingenious, often far-fetched attempts to survive on next to nothing. From the streets of New York City and Paris to the rural roads of upstate New York, the author treats us to a series of remarkable adventures and unforgettable encounters and, in several elaborate appixes, to previously unknown work from these years.

After a half-century of activism, John McConnell, the true founder of Earth Day, here relates his global promotion of peace, justice, and Earth care. Following the Kennedy assassination, McConnell's Minute for Peace gained worldwide attention. This led to his Earth Day and other initiatives aimed at promoting people and planet. In this book, he shares the views that garnered support during the environmental movement from 1969 onward, and that have inspired followers for forty years at annual Earth Day ceremonies at the UN and cities across the globe. John McConnell coined the term Earth Day in 1968, proposed its celebration on the spring equinox to the City of San Francisco in October 1969, and announced it in November at a UNESCO Conference. The City responded by hosting the first Earth Day on March 21, 1970. Margaret Mead, UN Secretary-General U Thant, President Ford, and thirty-three Nobel laureates supported McConnell's Earth Day, and thirty-six worldwide dignitaries signed McConnell's Earth Day Proclamation, supporting Earth Day on the spring equinox, an annual planetary holiday linking people everywhere without regard to politics, culture, national border, or religion. In 1957, after Sputnik, McConnell promoted the Star of Hope, a satellite devoted to peace. This effort sparked his origination of Earth Day, the Earth Flag, Earth Trustees, and the Earth Magna Charta. He worked with UN officials and other leaders to overcome differences and build common ground for peace, aiming to ensure our planet's future and human survival. This book chronicles his global mission, his life journey, and his unique contributions toward a peaceful and cherished planet.

Revelations is the only part of the Bible which claims to produce language which has been precisely dictated by the Lord Jesus. Three times over, the Lord testifies personally to its truth, accuracy and authority (Revelation 22:16, 18, 20). The book reveals to us more about our future destiny in definite terms than any other book of the Bible. Nearly all the contents of the book relate to the events which precede and follow close upon the Second Coming of the Lord. His redemption divides into three parts -- to redeem the earth from Satan's rule, to cause "the meek" to "inherit the earth, and to delight themselves in the abundance of peace."

Are biblical and prevailing mythologies essential truths but interpreted by witnesses with incomplete comprehension - intentionally misled even? Deluded by whom? Who were the sons of God? Where was Eden and what really happened there? Was Noahs Flood a deliberate act, or an accident - or a little of both? The Underlying Hand weaves an elegant tale re-interpreting those beliefs with modern knowledge, creeping upon the reader into a highly plausible interpretation. It begins in a sci-fi theme but the reader soon comes to recognize that it is essentially a very human drama indeed the origins of humanity. Along the way is a fascinating adventure with ideas that are sure to cause much debate and remain with the reader long after the book is finished.
