A journey to Yucatan reunites Gene S. Stuart with her granddaughter, Gloria. A graduate of the University of South Carolina, in her native state, Gene has been involved in North American for more than 30 years. She wrote "The Might Aztecs" for Special Publications and is the co-author of "Discovering Man's Past in the Americas" and "The Mysterious Ways"
Strapped to a helicopter, Richard A. Cooke III photographs sites in New Mexico's Chaco Canyon. Born in Hawaii and now a resident of Oregon, Rik has contributed to "Builders of the Ancient World" and other Society publications. "America's Ancient Cities," he says, "combined by two favorite life interests -- photography and architecture."
In his Pennsylvania studio, H. Tom Hall works on one of the 15 paintings he created for "America's Ancient cities." A book illustrator for 30 years, chiefly of historical subjects, he was the artist for two other Special Publications, "John Muir's Wild America" and "Into the Wilderness." "Archeology was a new field for me," Tom says. "Doing the paintings for this book filled a gap in my education."
LOTS of color beautiful photographs and illustrations!
I really liked this book. I was enthralled throughout. It's a pretty fat book and I believe it's good for anyone, not just teens! Maybe a few slow parts, but all books have that. Other people have said what it is about, so I won't go into that here.
I even read all the footnotes. They contain mostly interesting material and are often humorous.
I loved this book! I liked the science and was kept interested throughout! It was full of all the information I had heard of in the past and was clear and concise. I got it from my library and plan on buying it soon.
The author is not saying that he believes this stuff is going to happen. He's just doing the research on what others have said and putting it together in one book for those of us who like everything all in one book.
Thank you to the author for writing this book. :-)
This is a fine interesting and cool kit to get here. But don't pay any more for it.
I just bought this used through Amazon.com.
About 25 hinges.
Small magnifying glass
A small Collector's Album of United States Stamps.
A very small book: A Beginner's Guide to Stamp collecting. It's good information for a child I guess.
But Honestly, I don't think it's worth it unless you find it for $2.00 at a yard sale, or like I said above, get it here!
In my opinion they certainly could have at least included more stamps!!
I see that most people gave this book a great rating. It bored me and I never finished - I got most of the way through and thought - what's the point. Just wanted to give another opinion. My husband liked it just fine.
I just loved reading this book. A woman from England goes to India in her 20s and spends many years there in search for enlightenment. She lives in a small cave in the mountains and meditates practically all the time. She makes it through many years of cold and snow. She is an excellent writer and this book kept my interest throughout!
From the Back of the book:
Your most important characteristic is how you feel about you. Why? Because your self-esteem affects how you act, how you relate to others, and what you achieve. Uniquely CELEBRATE YOUR SELF blends the significant contributions from all the major schools of psychological thought to offer a practical and invaluable guide to building a positive self-image. Enjoying life is a gift only you can give yourself. CELEBRATE YOUR SELF tells you how.

I don't often say something even though I might love a book but here I am doing so now. This book is very interestingly written. AND it is written about the town I am living in: Taos, New Mexico! Cool ! It kept my attention and I finished it and am listing it here in hopes that someone else will enjoy it as much as I did.
