Category: Biography & Autobiography
Within these 73 Life Lessons of ordinary events and relationships since the 1930's will be found the unique experiences of Paul Seltzer. Here, the human spirit of curiosity, wonder and spontaneous delight are tested and flourish. There are dark nights and bright dawns that spark ruminations about life and humanity. With clarity, humor, and poignancy, these original life stories provide a vehicle to let us live into the gamut of our own humanity. From a child's delight in spinning Ivory soap into a tub full of suds, to an adult diving into a mountain of leaves; from the shock at the mysteries of death as a youngster squeezes life out of a guinea pig, to an oldster reflecting on the devastation of a tornado. In this array of tales, we come to see the forces at work in our own minds and what we can do about them. We see love and heartbreak with their consequences. There is chaos and serenity. There are values and choices. There are surprises and sameness. There is determination and resilience. There is the craziness and comic lacing it all. In exploring Life Lessons we understand that in our ordinariness we sense a higher purpose and universality. It is not about the fringe or the edges, but about us now.

The Educational Significance of Human and Non-Human Animal Interactions explores human animal/non-human animal interactions from different disciplinary perspectives, from education policy to philosophy of education and ecopedagogy. The authors refute the idea of anthropocentrism (the belief that human beings are the central or most significant species on the planet) through an ethical investigation into animal and human interactions, and 'real-life' examples of humans and animals living and learning together. In doing so, Rice and Rud outline the idea that interactions between animals and humans are educationally significant and vital in the classroom.

Fancy some life coaching on the cheap? Read on for the pearls of wisdom handed on to me by my rescued dog, Sean. I didn't think I needed much help with running my life - least of all from a two-year-old greyhound who was considered too rubbish to race; a dog whose only experience of life was the boredom of long hours spent alone in a bare kennel, with occasional minutes of running around in circles; a dog who didn't even know his own name. How wrong I was...It was life-changing. My perspective on swans, cats, and other aliens has completely changed, as has my view of the present tense (and the importance of it). Sean and I have not known each other very long - but so far, it's been a blast.

Author: OLLI at FSU
Category: Literary Collections
One of Tallahassee's richest cultural entities, the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at FSU, has collected here an anthology of mostly true and some fictional stories and poems, all rich, warm and seasoned. You get tales: bird dogs sprayed yellow and sulfurous; a white girl walking dusty red clay Georgia back roads and meeting her first black woman alone; an offbeat mom zanier than Lucille Ball; a magical memory with hooting owls echoing across a Suwannee River of the past; the chilling monologue of an old man set on his last revenge. In a poem, the narrator talks about finding an old friend on line with whom she tests recipes “for rescue and disaster.” What's not to love about a renaissance of words from a generation which has navigated its way through one world war, the cheery ‘50s, change-happy ‘60s, groovy ‘70s, greedy ‘80s, rich ‘90s, and into the next century? They have plenty to show us here. Mary Jane Ryals Poet Laureate of the Big Bend Tallahassee, Florida

Category: Biography & Autobiography
After successfully completing his 12,000 mile bus ride around America, Shaun Donovan now embarks on his latest and greatest challenge - to circumnavigate the coastline of Australia, again by bus, but also to ride the famous 'Indian Pacific' and 'Ghan' trains from west to east and south to north of this vast continent - A 20,000 kilometre journey which must be completed in less than 50 days. In a compelling story of determination, desperation and in some cases deprivation, read how Shaun and his fiance, Sally are roasted alive in sizzling heat and stifling humidity, get drowned-out in tropical storms and flash-flooding and survive an onslaught of electrifying lightning bolts, devastating cyclones and bone-shaking earthquakes before their journey is finally at an end. Add to this a lethal concoction of shark, stingray, and snake attacks they stumble upon during their trip and mix it up with crocodile, box jelly-fish, blue-ringed octopus and deadly stone-fish encounters and you've got yourself one hell of a story-line to tell. Like his American voyage of discovery, many things were learned and achieved, but there was also despair as his dreams of scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef and visiting Ayres Rock were shattered due to weather conditions and personal circumstances, both of which he swears will be done on his return to one of the most diverse and exciting continents on the planet.
