She's cute. She's sweet. And she wants to kill you.
Discovered wandering alone on a Kansas street a year after the zombie apocalypse, a young girl named Holly has been brought to Reclaimed Lincoln, Nebraska, and placed in foster care. Infected with a milder form of the H1Z1 virus, she regresses occasionally into a mindless, violent state that terrifies her foster family.

This is a daring and unorthodox re-evaluation of the Song of Solomon which focuses on the symbolic and historical context of the lyrics, verse by verse. While traditional interpretations tend to focus on the suggestion that the Song is symbolic of a sacred marriage between Israel and Yahweh, here, attention is given to the apparent evidence for skulduggery via sorcery and feminine wiles. King Solomon was renowned for having a large harem, including foreigners who raised concerns for the court, as the king was all too keen to bend the rules and turn a blind eye to their worship of idols.
In the Song is a disturbing tale of one such foreign woman, whose ambition for herself and her child puts the King in mortal danger... and the land of Israel in potential jeopardy. A flight of fancy? Consider the documented fate of Ramses III of Egypt, some 200 years before Solomon - a disgruntled and ambitious wife in the Egyptian harem conspired to murder Ramses... using wax figures and magical ...

Making Soap At Home
"What I like is that once you have made the soap, you know exactly what is inside. My family has sensitive skin, and commercial scented soaps tend to cause a rash or redness." - Sarah
"We don't know the kind of chemicals that are used to make the soaps we buy today. This book will shed light on why we should use only natural soaps. Besides, making homemade soap is very easy! My first goat milk soap turned out to be amazing!" - Carly
"I definitely relate to the author in terms of skin type. I've got very sensitive skin, too, and find it very difficult to use even the mildest soaps available on the market. I made the lavender bar, and I must say I feel amazing!" - Amanda
Why should you make your own natural and homemade soap?

Man is a social being. Communication is probably as vital for him as breathing. The process is vital not just from the point of sharing knowledge, facts, and information, but also feelings, thoughts, and emotions. It helps people share ideas, philosophy, and concept. It gives you access to knowledge around the world. The most important value of communication is that it helps you forge meaningful social and interpersonal relationships. Society and relationships will stagnate without the tool of communication. Imagine a society or people that do not communicate or swap ideas.
It isn't an overstatement to say that communication is the cornerstone of human relationships. Initially, strangers get to know one another only through communication. Then, relationships are developed and there is greater interaction, which develops into strong bonds. Communication assists us in expressing our ideas, emotions, and feelings while also helping us understand the feelings and emotions of other ...

After five years of prison and homelessness, Harry Langston has risen from the depths to rain hell on the friends that betrayed him and drug cartel that tried to kill him. Armed with incredible wealth and power, the specter known as Scorpio has declared war on evil.
"The best scene was Langston's confrontation with the Sons-of-Cristo gang leader. Looks like a possible series in the works. Good reading if you like the darker side of life." (LC)
"For me, the best part was Langston's insatiable quest for revenge with his next targets the drug cartel and Bronx gang that put him through hell in book one. The payback scenes were vivid, bloody, and decisive. A fast paced read which definitely sets the stage for the next book in the series. Not recommended for politically correct readers with its violence, slang, and sex." (MS)

'Becwethan' is a crime thriller.
It came as a total shock; out of the blue. Leo was sitting in the solicitor's office for the reading of his mother's will when the words "Swiss Chalet" were uttered. 'What Chalet?' Leo thought. 'I don't know anything about a Swiss Chalet... what the... really mum... why... ?' The solicitor continued; "In the family for several hundred years." Leo nearly fell off his chair. The Swiss Chalet had just got a whole lot bigger; now there was a heritage attached to it; relatives no doubt.
It was the opportunity of a lifetime. A chance to take that three month sabbatical the police force had been offering him; a chance to recharge his batteries. 'Go and take a look at it' he encouraged himself; 'Swiss Chalet... ridiculous', he had to pinch himself. 'It's almost certainly a wreck; probably just a pile of timbers on the floor by now' he thought.
BUT, Leo's problem wasn't the Chalet or its state of disrepair. No, Leo's problem was the fact that he turned up. ...

"Barry tugs at the heartstrings as you feel totally immersed in his world as he negotiates his own, very particular journey."
Barry Braithwaite has fallen just about as low as a man can go. He is living in a skip in a grim northern town when a chance encounter with Alfred, a self-confessed 'over-read, middle-aged, under-achiever' changes the course of his life. Barry and Alfred's journey takes them through an amusing labyrinth of officialdom into a new territory of self-discovery for both men. A lighthearted, satirical but penetrative tale about life on the edge of society and the choices open to modern man.
"Punctuated with humour, it's easy to warm, sympathise and, on occasion, empathise with the book's main characters - all striving to make the best of the hand life has dealt them."
"A great read which cleverly encapsulates the battles, defeats and victories faced by many throughout their lives."

The first recipe I learnt from Nakazono Masahilo Osensei was the Albi Plaster; it saved my index finger from amputation. The next one, bandaging raw eggplant on warts along with elimination of red meat and sugar, proved a rapid and full cure for my son and that cluster of warts on the back of his hand. The third recipe, burdock root juice for diagnosis and treatment of acute abdominal distress, saved my daughter from unnecessary surgery. Is it any wonder that at age 35, a father of 5 children shifted occupations and spent over a decade as the apprentice of the master healer, M. Masahilo Nakazono Osensei ? I entered into my studies thinking I might take better care of my family; Osensei guided me in understanding that the whole world is my family. That is what happened and this book the beginning of 'paying it forward.' The format is alphabetized; easier, but it is not an encyclopedia. This presentation is just what I gained by focusing on one medicine man who showed a keen interest in ...

George Catlin was a fascinating figure of the nineteenth century, an artist-explorer who ventured deep into the wilds of the newly discovered Americas to paint the rapidly vanishing indigenous populations, their leaders, warriors, medicine men and scenes from their modes of life. The gifts Catlin received over the years from these remote peoples formed the basis for a vast, important collection which Catlin loaned to the world's biggest museums, together with his portraits. Because of the stunning, life-like likenesses he created, the awed tribes dubbed Catlin Te-hee-pe-nee Washed which means The Great White Medicine.
This new 2017 edition of My Life Among the Indians is illustrated with many examples of Catlin's artwork from this period.
