How did the Sierra Nevada and adjacent lands come to be the size and shape they are today? This book covers 400 million years of physical evolution in a language understandable to nonscientists, tracing the volcanic activity, the folding and building of mountains, the breaking of blocks along fault lines, and the work of erosion and glaciers that have created today's dramatic landscape. Cordell Durrell spent a lifetime reading this complex story of movement and change in the rocks of the Feather River country. He shares with readers the excitement of discovering by remote but careful inference what must have happened millions upon millions of years ago. The basic methods of geologic analysis that Durrell describes can be applied anywhere on the earth's surface, lending new fascination to our travels throughout the frozen arctic, dry deserts, tropical rainforests, low swamps, and high mountains like California's magnificent Sierra.

How will a young family in 1830s Alabama break free from their society's prevailing beliefs? Do individuals really have the power to change the direction in which their society is moving? Can love transcend the boundaries we draw around our lives? Red Feather tackles these questions and more while illustrating powerful spiritual truths that are every bit as true today as they were over a hundred years ago. As Leah Stimpson's story winds through backwoods swamps, elegant port towns, and stormy Gulf waters, she illuminates exactly how the people of our not-so-distant past were able to choose God's light over man's desire for darkness. By learning from them, we just might be able to do the same. Endorsement "Red Feather captured my imagination from the beginning. I felt like one of the children sitting on the couch absorbed in Red Feather and Samuel's innocent, beautiful romance-a story that demonstrates a higher truth of a far deeper love. It is as if Leah jumped into that great river of inspiration and let the current take her." -Stephanie B. Morris, portrait artist in Mobile, Alabama

Have you ever wanted something real bad but it seemed too complex to try? Did you give up because you had no experience or there wasnt enough time? Faced with a challenge to make a traditional turkey feather cape where this knowledge had been long forgotten, the author a Chickasaw elder undertakes an ardous project and succeeds. So that the cultural knowledge will be preserved, this how-to book is the result. The author encourages a time-out from a hurried lifestyle to undertake a lengthy project, one that encourages visualization and prizes inspiration. To overcome the lack of experience, the author introduces creative thinking concepts. The hidden prize may be to develop ways to work on other complex projects. To give substance to the long forgotten knowledge, the author explores past written history of Colonial Times, back to 1540 when the Chickasaw met De Soto. Going back to the roots of the Chickasaws steeped in the Mississippian Era of 1000 1550 AD, knowledge is added by what modern archeologists have dug up from the past. This is a story, rarely told from the Indian viewpoint, for those who undertake making a turkey feather cape and those who love history.

TO JULIET ‘True, I talk of dreams, Which are the children of an idle brain, Begot of nothing but vain fantasy, Which is as thin of substance as the air.’ THE FEATHER ONCE upon a time there was a King who reigned over a country as yet, for a reason you may learn later on, undiscovered—a most lovely country, full of green dales and groves of oak, a land of dappled meadows and sweet rivers, a green cup in a circlet of mountains, in whose shadow the grass was greenest; and the only road to enter the country lay up steep, boiling waterfalls, and thereafter through rugged passes, the channels that the rivers had cut for themselves. Therefore, as you may imagine, the dwellers in the land were little troubled by inroads of hostile nations; and they lived peaceful lives, managing their own affairs, and troubling little about the rest of the world.

To meet growing demand, the FAO has estimated that world poultry production needs to grow by 2-3% per year to 2030. Much of the increase in output already achieved has been as a result of improvements in commercial breeds combined with rearing in more intensive production systems. However, more intensive systems and complex supply chains have increased the risk of rapid transmission of animal diseases and zoonoses. Consumer expectations of sensory and nutritional quality have never been higher. At the same time consumers are more concerned about the environmental impact of poultry production as well as animal welfare. Drawing on an international range of expertise, this book reviews research on safety, quality and sustainability issues in poultry production. Part 1 discusses risks from pathogens, detection and safety management on farms and in slaughterhouse operations. Part 2 looks at ways of enhancing the flavour, colour, texture and nutritional quality of poultry meat. Finally, the book reviews the environmental impact of poultry production. Achieving sustainable production of poultry meat Volume 1: Safety, quality and sustainability will be a standard reference for poultry and food scientists in universities, government and other research centres and companies involved in poultry production. It is accompanied by two further volumes which review poultry breeding, nutrition, health and welfare.
