Indigenous people in the New World referred to maize as 'Our Mother', 'Our Life' and 'She Who Sustains Us'. Originating in Mesoamerica 9,000 years ago, corn or maize now grows in 160 countries. Michael Owen Jones traces the transportation of corn to the Old World by Christopher Columbus, and its rapid distribution throughout Europe, Africa and Asia that followed. He describes many of the remarkable culinary uses of corn, from the Chilean savoury pie pastel de choclo to Japanese corn soup, Mexican tamales and the South African cracked hominy dish umngqusho, favoured by former president Nelson Mandela. While Jones addresses the controversies surrounding maize, he also writes about the many ways corn is celebrated.

In 2001, Michael Owen and Stephen Payseur were playing golf together. During their play the discussion turned to many areas including religion. After talking for awhile they realized that they knew very little about the Apostles of Christ. They decided to do something about it. Both friends researched the Apostles and found some interesting stories, most of which they had never heard. They decided to write a book about all the things they had found in their research. They had no idea that their little, easy-to-read, book would turn out to be so popular. They were invited to speak at many book clubs, churches, and civic groups throughout the area and the book sold thousands of copies, surprising everyone. A.D. The Fate of the Apostles of Christ (and Others) After the Crucifixion, has been out of print for over 10 years. In Late 2010, Mike and Steve decided to re-issue the book with some up grades, including pictures, and new cover and other enhancements. This is the result. It still contains the stories and legends surrounding the deaths of the Apostles, plus it includes others who were present or had some role in the Crucifixion. People like King Herod, Pontius Pilate, Mary Magdalene, and Joseph of Arimathea are included. This little book pack lots of information between its covers and is an excellent starting point for anyone wanting to know more about the events in the early Christian Church.

The authors of this book demonstrate that fieldwork is first and foremost a human pursuit. They draw upon published and unpublished accounts of fieldworkers' personal experiences to develop the thesis that an appreciation of fieldwork as a unique mode of inquiry depends upon an understanding of the role the human element plays in it. They analyze the processes involved when people study people firsthand, focusing upon the recurrent human problems that arise and must be solved. The human processes and problems, they argue, are common to all fieldwork, regardless of the disciplinary backgrounds or the specific interests of individual researchers.
