The Last Of The Living Blue
A Year Of Living And Dying Among The Trees

Your awaken to the smell of a familiar lover as the blinding sun of early morning spreads across the pillows like spilled milk.  You wonder how an earth you got yourself in this position again.

I'm home after four months away.  My husband is beside me.  My land is under me.  She is dry.  The winter was not easy on her, leaving hillsides wind whipped and exposed when we expected to find a blanket of mild snow still embracing her.  Instead, we see a landscape of brown grasses and grey trees standing as skeletons, casting thin shadows yet somehow still whispering.  I try to listen,  Ghostly voices in the spring wind welcome me home.  at Least that's what I like to think.

Since returning home two day ago, I haven't gone beyond our tucked in valley.  I haven't pressed deep into her woods to see what life remains or how far the epidemic has spread.  I will.  I know I must.  No matter what awaits me.

Although I have come to accept it, seeing this huge devastation from such tiny beetles can be overwhelming.  I'm prepared for the worst.  How bad will that be?

I have great trust that the mountain will be fine long after this is--over with or without her trees.  Right now, I'd say it will be without.  One day soon she may stand naked, unadorned.  And for me, one small woman who shoe to call this big mountain home, I will still find no place more beautiful than here.

The Color Of The Wild
An Intimate Look At Life In An Untamed Land

Along the Continental Divide, high in the San Juan Mountains where the Rio Grande is born, lies a wilderness as proud and strong-willed as the woman who chose to build a life there. Here unfolds the story of this woman, her son, horses, and a mountain—and the man who rides with them into a life where no one has lived before. In this country where winters are harsh, wild, and remote, author Gin Getz learns to bend and grow within the trust of shared isolation.

Parallel with the story of living on the mountain is a darker tale of heartbreak that threatens to tear apart their attachment to the wilderness. Gin lives under  a dark cloud as her husband’s family disintegrates over issues of pride and  ownership; a story rarely told but so common throughout the West.

Along the way, Gin’s readers enter a world of deep beauty, fresh perceptions, simple humor and breath-taking writing as The Color of the Wild unfolds, season by season, through one year on the mountain.

Why We Fish
Reel Wisdom From Real Fishermen

In Why We Fish, Robert Montgomery examines the reasons we keep going back to the water and how fishing enriches us, both individually and as a society.  Contributed by ten passionate anglers, the essays on these pages celebrate the tangible and intangible blessing we derive from one of man's oldest pastimes.

What is life all about?  Go fishing and find out.  But first, enjoy the wonderful essays in Why We Fish.

Robert discovered that we fish to remember, and we fish to forget.  We fish when we're happy, and when we're sad.  We fish to bond with friends and family, or to be alone.  Whatever our motivation, no matter where we are on the success spectrum, fishing makes our lives better in ways we never could have imagined.  It slows us down.  It sets us free.  It teaches us about nature, even while showing us how much we don't know.  And fishing becomes the foundation for our fondest memories.

Intuition, Cancer & Miracles
A Passage of Hope & Healing
with Divine Messages and Meditations for Your Journey

In 2012, spiritual teacher and intuitive Sara Wiseman was diagnosed with melanoma, one of the deadliest forms of cancer.  Medical tests showed the malignancy had already spread to her lymph nodes.  During two surgeries and the recovery periods that followed, Sara struggled with physical pain and the negative emotions surrounding cancer.

But Sara had extraordinary resources.  Even before medical treatment started, she worked intensively to combine traditional medicine with the healing tools in her unique spiritual toolkit, including prayer, meditation, intuition, visualization, working with Divine guides, and sound healing.

Miracles happened for Sara through the system of healing she created.  Using spiritual intuition as a healing technique, she was able to send exactly where the cancer was located in her body and begin a process of condensing it into one tiny, encapsulated spot.  Today, she is considered cured of cancer.

Along with Sara's personal journey, Intuition, Cancer, and Miracles includes the Divine messages she received from her spiritual guides.  We can all receive these messages, and Sara's book offers easy steps to initiate contact.

The second part of Intuition, Cancer, and Miracles invites readers to directly experience the transformative power of the seven powerful guided meditations―the same meditations Sara used to create healing in her own body during her cancer journey. 

What if spiritual awakening rested within your own heart?  What if you could heal past wounds and create a life of joy, simply via heart's opening?

In this transformational book, Sara Wiseman busts the myth that change-work is slow and the path to happiness is difficult.  In reality, spiritual awakening is part of who we are as human beings.

Everything changes when you crack open your heart.  In this book, you'll learn how to move through the four progressive openings: pain, compassion, connection, and love.  It is in moving through these heart passages that true consciousness is revealed.

The second part of this book features the 365 Daily Illuminations, life-affirming messages that guide you during the journey.  Simply by reading the message for each day, you will easily move into joy and love.
