This timely collection of essays - written by nine recognized forestry and environmental specialists - tells the story of the conservation, use, and changes in the Commonwealth's forests over time. The book traces the development of pre-settlement, colonial, and post-Revolutionary War forest practices, and concludes with recommendations as to how history might be used to inform and shape future policy. Underscored is the importance of private and local leadership, such as the unique Massachusetts town forest movement. Economic contributions and educational programs are detailed, as well as the ways Massachusetts' leadership has influenced national forestry. Written for the layperson, and reflecting the particular experience and style of each contributor, the history will appeal to a range of readers from local conservation activists to forestry professionals and policymakers.

Modern life is frantically busy - we rush from one thing to another, never stopping to think about what really matters to us, what we could be achieving if we could only slow down for long enough to see it. Norman Drummond draws on his wide experience as a headteacher, as a minister and as an internationally respected coach in life and business to bring home the fundamental lesson he has learned both for himselfand for others: we can't hope to achieve our potential unless we take time out to work out what is most important to us. Whether for a few minutes or for a few days, alone or with others - Drummond shows how easy and how effective stepping back can be. Most importantly, he focuses on the rich rewards of stepping back: clarity of thought, stronger objectives - and the ability to discern the true priorities of your own heart. STEP BACK is an essential book for a culture that is unable to rest and relax

"Ever wished you could break free of the rat race and pursue what really matters to you? JB Glossinger did just that, exchanging the golden handcuffs of corporate success for a three-hour workday and the freedom to golf, write, spend time with family, and guide others toward realizing their dreams. Now in The Sacred Six: A Simple, Step-by-Step Process for Focusing Your Attention and Recovering Your Dreams, JB offers readers the same simple but powerful tools he used to transform his own life. Grounded in years of coaching groups and individuals, the Sacred Six process leads readers through identifying their mission, values, and goals, then designing an action plan with daily tasks to move them steadily toward their cherished dreams. Practical exercises organized around core Sacred Six principles like focus, clarity, consistency, and prioritization provide support for developing "keystone" positive habits, eliminating blocks to success, and making life-changing decisions from the perspective of the Observer--the true self--rather than the ego. Not just another self-help program, "The Sacred Six process is about more than getting things done," JB emphasizes. "It's about your life story--your journey and your purpose." He calls it sacred because it's a path to full expression of one's values. He identifies six as the "magic number" for managing projects, daily tasks, and one's time. An insightful and entertaining raconteur, JB weaves his personal tale of trials and triumph into his time-tested steps for creating a joyful and fulfilling life. Readers will find the same kind of upbeat, useful advice that draws 15,000 listeners in more than 100 countries to JB's daily 15-minute MorningCoach.com podcast, rated among the top 20 podcasts in the world"--

James was only five years old and travelling home to Devon after holiday with his family in Scotland in 1986, when tragedy struck. The car was involved in a serious accident just outside Bristol, leaving him fighting for survival on life support. When he emerged from his coma, doctors discovered that he was seriously brain damaged, leaving the left side paralysed. Within the blink of an eye James had been transformed from a gregarious, fun-loving little boy into a rag doll. But with a lot of loving support, he began the long and difficult road to recovery. His attitude was inspirational, and for years he threw himself into rehabilitation. As James grew up he began to feel misunderstood and not able to reach the level of normality he so yearned for. He felt that there was no longer any point to his life. When James asked his doctor for help, the reality of his situation suddenly struck. Suicide would be the ultimate failure. This is the story of James' life and how he fought tooth and nail to stay alive. It is both his autobiography and a guide to personal development. Since making the conscious decision not to give up hope, James has gone on to travel the world and teach English abroad. James is open and honest about the things in which he has found great solace during his darkest hours, and he credits the teachings of Kabbalah, an increasingly popular form of Jewish mysticism, for helping him refocus his life. The singer Madonna, a long term exponent of the spiritual teaching, has been an inspirational figure for James. James is now a picture of good health; despite continued weakness in his left side and a limp, he walks confidently and with a purpose.

Bioregional Assessments

In diverse regions around the country, impending crises over dwindling natural resources and conflicts over land use have given birth to a new approach to environmental management and policymaking. Known as bioregional assessment, the approach gives science and scientists a crucial role in the policymaking process, bringing together experts on a range of issues to assess existing ecological and social conditions and to provide a base of knowledge from which to develop policy options and management decisions. A number of high-profile assessments have been conducted, and while much has been written on individual projects, little has been done to compare assessments or integrate the lessons they provide. Bioregional Assessments synthesizes the knowledge from many regions by examining the assessment process and detailing a series of case studies from around the country. Each case study, written by knowledgeable leaders from the region, features a detailed description of the project followed by reviews from the perspectives of science, management, and policy. Case studies examined are the Forest Ecosystem Management Assess ment Team (FEMAT) Assessment; the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin Assessments; the Everglades-South Florida Assessments; the Northern Forest Lands Assessments; Southern California Natural Community Conservation Planning (NCCP); the Interior Columbia Basin Ecosystem Management Project; and the Sierra Nevada Ecosystem Project. In addition, the book features introductory chapters that examine the challenges inherent in the assessment of complex regional systems, and the role of science in the assessment process. The concluding chapter provides a synthesis and analysis of the assessment process. Bioregional assessments are quickly becoming an essential part of ecosystem management. This book provides a unique look at the theory and practice of bioregional assessments, and is an essential volume for resource managers, scientists, policymakers, and anyone involved with formulating or implementing strategies for regional planning and ecosystem management.

Darcy Kincaid was glad for the chance to assist Dr. Simon Garnett with completing his book. It was the perfect opportunity to work on her own book of tales of ancient Egypt, the sale of which would allow her to return to Egypt where she was born. Everything sounded perfect until she saw Dr. Garnett and wondered why she felt as if she already knew this brooding man. But they had never met. The answer may be in the mysterious lights that guard Darcy and that also haunt the gardens. Darcy and Simon must discover the answer before they are doomed to be lost to each other forever--P. [4] of cover.
