NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! Jump aboard the White Feather Flier, a magical plane that can go wherever you want. Just press a button printed on the page, and point the plane up in the air to fly, or down to land it. The Flier’s mission is to transport readers around the world, to engage them in helping to save the environment, and to teach one and all to love our planet. Fly to the top of a mountain. Send clean water to thirsty people. Dive deep into the ocean (the Flier turns into a submarine!) to pick up pollution and bring back the fish. Explore the planet, meet new people, and help make the world a better place. An inspiring, lyrical story, rooted in Lennon’s life and work, with beautiful illustrations that bring the faraway world closer to young children. The book includes words to a special poem written by Julian Lennon, specifically for Touch the Earth. Touch The Earth is the first book in a planned trilogy. A portion of the proceeds from books sales will go to support the environmental and humanitarian efforts of the White Feather Foundation.

Standing on My Head is intensely personal--and just as intensely universal. In this little volume, Hugh Prather teaches us how to see ourselves--in ways that seem both so true (or right) and normal (or obvious) that we can’t believe we didn’t see them ourselves. This is a book to dip into when we come unplugged from ourselves and it’s time to stand on our heads. Standing on My Head moves with quirky profundity from moment to moment, from dictum to doubts, from aphorism and mantra, to mundane recollections of tennis games to offbeat encounters with friends. It takes us into a room where we can, if we listen closely, and maybe tip ourselves upside down once in a while, begin to perceive something different in ourselves and in others. “I have to act the way I am before I can become something else.” Hugh Prather began this book more than thirty years ago. It was first published as I Touch the Earth, the Earth Touches Me, in 1972. This edition, revisited and radically revised for a new century, marries the wisdom of youth to the wisdom of experience.

"We did not think of the great open plains, the beautiful rolling hills and the winding strams with tangled growth, as 'wild. Only to the white man was nature a 'wilderness' and only to him was the land 'infested' with 'wild' animals and 'savage' people. To us it was tame. Earth was boutiful and we were surrounded with the blessings of the Great Mystery. Not until the hairy man from the east came and with brutal frenzy heaped injustices upon us and the families we loved was it 'wild' for us, it was that for us the 'Wild West' began." TOUCH THE EARTH is a selection of statements and writings by North American Indians, chosen to illuminate the course of Indian history and the abiding values of Indian life. Together they recount the pain of the Indian as he watched the white man kill the wild herbs and overrun the sacred lands of his ancestors. Mystified at first by the white man's ways, the Indian tone guves way first to anger, then desperation and, finally hopelessness. More than 50 pages of photographs, taken by the American photographer Edward S. Curtis in the early years of this century, complement the text.

"When Spirit calls, it often does so with a great wash of wisdom. No matter what age, no matter what place, it affects us dramatically. Such is the case of Jeff Michaels. This is his second book of intuitive messages which seem to keep flowing as though to make up for lost time. It's obvious Jeff has the gift, and now is him time to share it! Believe me when I tell you that it's worth your time." Lee Carroll, Author of the Kryon series. "Ancient spiritual wisdom teaches that we are all One. Indigenous shamanic wisdom extends the concept of "we" to include our brothers and sisters of the plant, animal, and mineral kingdoms; indeed, even the elemental spirits of the earth, air, fire, and water are part of the body of spirit that embraces and embodies the One-ness of all creation. This Great Spirit has found a voice. It speaks through Jeff Michaels, the voice of ONE-ereon. Matt Pallamary, Author of Land Without Evil & Spirit Matters

TOUCH THE EARTH: 21ST CENTURY LANDSCAPING is the latest offering from cutting-edge landscaping entrepreneur Paul Dowlearn. This second book covers the basic steps of landscaping from the planning and design stage to long term care and maintenance. Along the way, Paul shares his vision for the 21st Century and what we must consider as we begin the journey toward a sustainable future. The most critical issue facing homeowners today is the availability of fresh water. Water collection, irrigation techniques, soil improvement, plant selection, and every other facet of the industry have been impacted to show major improvement in the first fifteen years of this New Millenium. A major shift in landscaping goals and attitudes has naturally come with these positive changes. The era of high maintenance, copious irrigation, and chemically controlled landscaping is coming to an end. Here is one seasoned veteran's view as to what is happening today and what will inevitably become the future of home landscaping. We must touch the Earth with respect, reverence, and a greater awareness of The Web of Life. www.wvlandscape.com

Based on the life and tragic death of a veteran from our country's twenty-five-year involvement in Southeast Asia, this novella explores friendship, sailing, and the Vietnam War. It's a work concerned with the American and global landscape and our nation's late twentieth-century historical & cultural identity. A Catholic from coastal Connecticut, Robert Fitzgerald is at first indifferent towards--but finally a spiritual mentor to a young man from the rural South who arrives on his construction site thinking he understands life much better than he actually does. A combatant in the horrific siege at Dak To, Fitzgerald helps the young narrator find alternatives to various temptations of the early 1970s while navigating the Pacific Ocean between Ventura and Channel Islands. He shows the young man that the real joy of our brief, lives centers around being awed and reverent toward the Great Chain of Being, respecting all people despite their surface differences, working hard, living healthily and naturally "like Daniel in the Old Testament." Fitzgerald teaches him the basics of a more mature manhood, open-water navigation, even the names of fish, seal, and birds. This prose-work contains many facets and angles, including a non-linear section of contemporary and 1960s social critique mimicking Kierkegaard and Wendell Berry, with satiric echoes of Swift, Voltaire--even Jimi Hendrix. Eventually, the two friends journey to repair a millionaire's hurricane-damaged sloop off the coast of Fiji--on the small island of Malololailai--and travel a bit through French Polynesia. Before his untimely death back on American soil, Fitzgerald gives the young man a series of parables--as when the young man veryfirst meets him and aggressively accuses him of stealing his yellow hammer--that opens his eyes and enrich his life forever.
