Where to Find the Wildlife in British Woodlands & Hedgerows By Leslie Kent
Paperback: $17.35
Prints in 3-5 business days
Woodlands have dominated much of the British landscape for thousands of years since the recession of the last ice age, and yet so few of us spend enough time in them to understand how much of our... More > native wildlife is adapted to live with trees. The inspiration of naturalists, poets and artists, woodlands have often been removed, changed or marginalised to make way for ‘progress’, and from within our suburbs and garden plots we rarely spend time appreciating their wildlife, and yet it is still there waiting to be discovered. This book is a guide to where you can find that often hidden wildlife. Leslie Kent, a Biology teacher by trade and amateur ecologist, reveals just how easy it can be to find wild things even in the middle of a city, if only you take the time to look for it.< Less

Historians consider the biblical account of Noah and the Deluge as a myth. However, this famous event occurred at the earliest times of recorded history (Sumerian King List). Today scientists believe... More > in the last ice age called Pleistocene ending in 10,000 BCE, but there is no witness of this planetary cataclysmic event and its existence is based solely on the controversial interpretation of its consequences and their dating. The existence of erratic blocks and the disappearance of mammoths are presented as evidence of the last glaciation. However, despite dating obtained by 14C (calibrated by dendrochronology) is considered absolute by most experts its confrontation with the Egyptian chronology, in which some dates are fixed by astronomy, reverses this widespread belief and shows that dates obtained by 14C increase exponentially before -2200. Thus the rate of 14C tends gradually to 0 around -3500, which implies an important consequence: before -3500, 14C dating is no longer possible.< Less

The Story of Australia By Robert Grieve Black
eBook (ePub): $1.16
We all tend to think of Australia as a country with a very short history. In fact it has one of the oldest identifiable histories on this planet dating back to when the first Aboriginal people... More > travelled south between the ice ages. Did you know that there are around one million camels living in the wild in Australia? They are not of course indigenous but rather were shipped in by British colonialists to help explore and develop the outback.

Did you know that Australia, with its reliance on coal-burning power stations, is considered to be the world’s number one polluter? These are just a few of the gems in this short history of Australia. It is just under 30,000 words which represents about eighty pages in a standard print book. There are inevitably some dates to maintain the time-line but the emphasis is on telling the story of Australia.< Less

Rocks of Prehistory: The Gumlog Creek Rockshelter By Clay Sherrod

Among the most unusual of all Arkansas rock shelters – homes for our aboriginal residents – is the Gumlog Creek Rockshelter. Occupied for thousands of years, this site demonstrates... More > prehistoric ethnology from the end of the last ice age to the time of first contact by European explorers. The Arkansas River Valley Indian Rock Art Project began for the author in 1980. It resulted in the cataloging of nearly 700 rock shelters throughout Arkansas which demonstrate some form of aboriginal rock art and/or evidence of prehistoric occupation. Analysis of its artifacts reveal a very long span of occupation, from Archaic through Woodland Periods of cultural influence. This association suggests that the glyphs of these shelters were contemporaneous. In addition, the impressive shelter atop Carrion Crow Mountain in Arkansas, along Gumlog Creek, a feeder creek into the Arkansas River, is associated to one of the most unusual and intricate rock carvings in North America, the Gumlog Creek Petroglyph.< Less
