The You I Never Knew
By Susan Wiggs
Michelle thought she'd lost everything she cared about when she was 17. That was the summer her world-famous, Hollywood legend of a father finally summoned her to spend a summer with him on his ranch in Montana--to get to know each other. Though he still seemed an unapproachable star, she loved the ranch and her life there. She also discovered Sam that summer, just another cow hand on the ranch, but to Michelle he was the man she had always dreamed of, the lover who would make all her dreams come true. Until her father finds out about their affair and not only fires Sam, banishing him back to the wrong side of the tracks, but destroys his family as well in one mighty blow. Pregnant and heartbroken, Michelle flees to a new life in Seattle. There she is successful and safe--safe from love, safe from hurt. But her son is lost to her, a troubled teen on the verge of self-destruction, a boy who blames her for the absence of his father and grandfather. And then one day her father calls to tell her he is dying. He has only one chance to live--if she will donate a kidney to save him. And she goes, resolved to save her father, terrified to face Sam, but driven by desperation to save her son. To do that, she must face all the secrets of the past and find a way to heal the scars and love again.

Your Cabin In The Woods
By Conrad E. Meinecke, Victor Aures
For 70 years, readers have been enjoying Meinecke's classic odes to the simple life, Your Cabin in the Woods (1943) and Cabin Craft and Outdoor Living (1947). For the first time, these books are combined into a deluxe two-color vintage package, featuring hundreds of charming illustrations by Victor Aures, known for his work with the Boy Scouts of America.In writing both practical and inspirational, Meinecke details how to turn your dream into a reality, from building plans to choosing land to using tools. However the book's enduring appeal owes in large part to its warmly engaging tone and firm belief in the restorative power of nature. He delights in the satisfaction of hard work, writing "in the doing you find yourself tired, muscles a bit sore, hands hardened and rough, but you will say over and over again, 'I did it.'" Meinecke's homespun wisdom is a comfort in your toil, "Take full enjoyment in the building. Take time out to rest. Most city folks seem always to rush things through. Why? Lay off until tomorrow. Take an afternoon nap. Stop the clock for the weekend. Get off to an early start in the cool of tomorrow morning. You may be crowded in your work in town, but this should be your rest cure, your recreating. Don't spoil it by city driving standards."

Yoga in the Kashmir Tradition
By Billy Doyle
"If we have first understood, or have the deep conviction, that in our real nature there is nothing to become, nothing to attain, then we can explore the body and its movements without end-gaining. We can practise yoga to free us from what we are not, and perhaps more profoundly, simply for the joy of it."Jean also had reservations about certain dualistic tendencies in yoga: yoga means to join, but to join what? We are one from the beginning; we only have to see it. The emphasis here is not on achieving something but on listening and exploring without will or effort. In the progressive approach one evolves through various levels of spiritual attainment. But there is always a someone, an ego, still evolving. In the direct approach there is simply recognising the false as false, that you can never be something objective. The personal has no role to play."Jean Klein was a master of Advaita (non-dualism) and yoga. He taught yoga in the Kashmir Tradition, an approach based on awareness through body sensation, which is here presented by Billy Doyle, a long term student of Jean Klein. This teaching was grounded in the non-dualistic perspective. Yoga in the Kashmir Tradition: The Art of Listening therefore covers all facets of Jean Klein's teaching.

Yoga and the Pursuit of Happiness
By Sam Chase
Everyone is looking for happiness, but very few really know where to find it. Maybe it's that house you've been dreaming of buying, or a new car, or the perfect relationship? Despite what advertisers have been telling us all our lives, the answer to finding true happiness isn't in having more, more, more. It turns out the answer is much simpler-and profound-than we could have imagined.In Yoga and the Pursuit of Happiness, you'll discover that lasting happiness is already at your fingertips-in the small, everyday moments inherently infused with purpose and meaning-and yoga will show you how to find it. The philosophy of yoga boils down to one fundamental process: overcoming suffering by coming to know ourselves and aligning our actions with our own intrinsic sense of spiritual purpose. And yoga gives us the tools to address two basic existential questions: Who am I? What should I do?In this thought-provoking, challenging, and entertaining guide, celebrated yoga instructor Sam Chase blends ancient wisdom from the Bhagavad Gita and Yoga Sutras with modern psychology to show you how to deepen your understanding of yourself and the world around you, end the cycle of materialism and greed that can get in the way of cultivating stillness of mind, and achieve lasting happiness and joy. A fabulous read for both the seasoned yogi and the novice alike!
