Toba Pato Tucker, who has photographed the Navajo and Zuni Indians of the Southwest, the Shinnecock and Montauk Indians on eastern Long Island and the Pueblo people of New Mexico and Arizona, now creates a record of the Onondaga, the Native people who have inhabited the hills of central New York for fifteen thousand years.

Using a simple black backdrop and available daylight, her portraits show the timeless, contemplative images that reify the spirit that has maintained the Onondaga for centuries. Of her work Tucker has said, "Native Americans are an ancient people striving to retain their traditional way of life and integrity while confronting modern society and the dominant culture. I want to record them, for history and for art, at the end of the twentieth century."

In this book are fifty-two compelling tales that will lead the reader on a journey of discovery of the African continent. It tracks the ancient grail of traditional African medicine or muthi. The journey takes one year, with one story for each of the fifty-two weeks. Many of the stories inherited through Africa’s compelling oral tradition are between these covers: committed to paper for the first time ever.

The ancient African people were the first aromatherapists who well understood the effect of plants on the human body, mind and soul. Innately spiritual, the thousands of lineages of African people across thousands of years have all used plant medicines for healing, always with the blessing of their ancestors.

Knowledge of African plant mythology and its associated healing practices is most certainly a grail because on this great continent we call Africa, knowledge has always been an oral tradition. Because it was never written down, thousands of years of healing wisdom and intelligence have been lost in the transference from one generation to the next.

This book endeavoures to bring to light the deep history of fifty-two of the thousands of indigenous medicinal plants of Africa, before it is too late. The focus is towards Southern Africa because this region is a hotspot of cultural and botanical diversity. Unlike the healing knowledge of other ancient cultures, such as India or China, little of Africa’s healing history is recorded.

As you read the stories about fifty-two of the continent’s prominent indigenous plant cures, the authors hope you, too, will experience some of the magnetism, mystery and wisdom of Africa. They hope it will help you understand a bit more about yourself and about our species: the human being.

Since its humble beginnings as a ford for oxen across the river Thames in the tenth century, Oxford has been an inspiration to generations of writers and thinkers, who have admired its 'dreaming spires' (Matthew Arnold), or warned of its excesses, as did Anthony Trollope: 'Oxford is the most dangerous place to which a young man can be sent'. This compact gift book is packed full of witty, scandalous and entertaining quotations about this famous city from the Middle Ages to the current decade.

Andre Pretorius is verlei deur Italie toe 'n Romeinse meisie hom in 1992 op 'n warrelwindtoer deur Rome geneem het. Vier jaar later het hy die land deurkruis met 'n universiteitsvriend, 'n rugsak en 'n tweemantent. Sedertien het hy teruggekeer op die spore van komponiste, kunstenaars en selfs Afrikaanse digters. In Italiaanse intermezzi bring hy die leser van aangesig tot aangesig met die vele gedaantes van hierdie land vol skoonheid en teenstrydigheid. Hy swig voor die wondere van die menslike gees in Rome en Venesie, maar hy verdwaal ook langs die agterpaadjies van Sicilie en die Abruzzi. Hy proe smake - balsemiek, Parmaham - uit die hande van die wat hierdie sakramente van lewe vir hulleself gemaak het. Hy bejeen heiliges en pouse eers met verwarring en dan met ontsag vir hul heerskappy van die Italiaanse wese. Oor die jare verander sy reisgenote - van daardie universiteitsvriend tot sy verloofde en uiteindelik sy kleuterseuntjie - en elke keer is sy blik anders. Uiteindelik staan hy saam met die leser verwonder oor 'n aangrypende land met dikwels verrassende eggo's van sy eie Afrikaanse wortels.

Established in 1642 as a Roman Catholic mission, Montreal was named for the mountain where its French founders erected a cross. They also laid out the streets that today meander through three core districts: the Plateau, Downtown, and historic Old Montreal. The city has remade itself three times: first in the 1830s when planners decreed that all buildings be built with Trenton limestone; again in the 1870s when the city moved up the hill into what is called the Square Mile; and finally in the 1960s, when Place Ville Marie and the infrastructure for the Expo 67 World's Fair dramatically altered the skyline. A number of historic properties were lost, including the St. James Club, Her Majesty's Theatre, and the Van Horne Mansion. In spite of the architectural vandalism, Montreal, with its signature greystone buildings and quiet parks, remains Canada's most alluring and invigorating city. Sites include: Mount Royal, City Hall, Champ de Mars, Place Jacques Cartier, Sailors Chapel, Bonsecours Market, Place Royale, Place D"Armes, Notre Dame, Chinatown,Victoria Square, Fairmont Le Reine Elizabeth, Windsor Station, Sun Life Building, Windsor Hotel, Dorchester Square, Cathedral of Mary Queen of the World, St.Lawrence Boulevard, St. Jean, Habitat 67, Expo 67, Cartier Monument, Olympic Stadium.
