“A noted naturalist explores the centrality of home in the lives of humans and other animals . . . A special treat for readers of natural history” (Kirkus Reviews). Every year, many species make the journey from one place to another, following the same paths and ending up in the same places. Every year since boyhood, the acclaimed scientist and author Bernd Heinrich has done the same, returning to a beloved patch of western Maine woods. Which led him to wonder: What is the biology in humans of this primal pull toward a particular place, and how is it related to animal homing? In The Homing Instinct, Heinrich explores the fascinating mysteries of animal migration: how geese imprint true visual landscape memory; how scent trails are used by many creatures to locate their homes with pinpoint accuracy; and how even the tiniest of songbirds are equipped for solar and magnetic orienteering over vast distances. And he reminds us that to discount our human emotions toward home is to ignore biology itself. “A graceful blend of science and memoir . . . [Heinrich’s] ability to linger and simply be there for the moment when, for instance, an elderly spider descends from a silken strand to take the insect he offers her is the heart of his appeal.” —Julie Zickefoose, The Wall Street Journal “Deep and insightful writing.” —David Gessner, The Washington Post

The theme of this anthology is words, especially words in the context of the Dharma. Words have such power and magic, and yet they also present so many limitations and pitfalls. There are questions of how to use them skilfully and accurately, and the dangers of taking things too literally or misunderstanding metaphors. Indeed, there's the difference between understanding words and really knowing anything at all. There's the relationship between words and the truth, and the role poetry plays in connecting them.

Bible Meaning and Bible Mystery by English judge, author, and New Thought advocate Thomas Troward, was originally published in 1917.Bible Mystery and Bible Meaning is considered an important and controversial work by author Thomas Troward. In the work Troward discusses critical concepts in the Bible and draws connections between these biblical writings and science to attempt to prove his belief that they are not contradictory, but in fact are complementary. As one of the earliest writers to explore connections between science and the bible, this is an important work because it has been used widely by scholars both in the fields of biblical studies as well as science for more than a century. This is an excellent publication for those of both fields and also of Troward's other writings in the area of the New Thought movement.
