Bryan, Liz
Experience history and the outdoors in "Country Roads of Alberta", an intriguing new photographic guidebook that takes you to places you've never been before. Alberta's scenery is as diverse as its topography. Fringed along its western edge by high mountains, the land descends through foothills to stretch into undulating plains sculpted by ancient ice into ridges, hills and deep coulees. Under the changing light of the prairie sky, the rolling landscape reveals tipi rings and medicine wheels - remnants of the first people to call this land home - as well as marks of later civilisation: homesteads, old barns, churches and the graveyards of the first immigrants.Antelope, wild goats, moose, beaver, prairie dogs and birds are among the bountiful wildlife that flourish here. In "Country Roads of Alberta", Liz Bryan guides readers along the back roads of this beautiful landscape. In addition to driving directions and maps, Bryan includes snippets of archaeology, history, geology and other interesting information. The heart of her book, though, is in her magnificent, full-colour photos that celebrate Alberta's many landscapes - some still wild, and all most beautiful. 160pp.

Herschel, Wayne; Lederer, Birgitt
Wayne Herschel, in a culmination of 15 years of research on archaeo-astronomy, has unravelled an extraordinary secret. His journey begins in Egypt discovering that in all probability, all 50 of the pyramids of Lower Egypt represent a grand star map of the brightest stars forming a 360 degree circuit of constellations along the edge of the Milky Way. Even more importantly, the star map denotes the proverbial X that marks the spot. He also identifies the origins of a human blueprint code within the star map. In its context it claims cryptically that our human lineage is associated with what appears to be another nearby Sun-like star system. The human blueprint emerges at other ancient sites. The same star pattern found in Egypt is also found at Stonehenge, Tikal, and Angkor Wat when their nearby monuments are included. The earliest human cave paintings at Lascaux, the Sumerians and the Incas, as do many other ancient civilisations around the world, all appear to emulate the very same star secret with great obsession. In every instance it is their ultimate monument or an inscription that reveres the importance of one nearby Sun-like star. This star is in Taurus, the bull of the heavens, and the ancients passionately worshiped it as the place of their gods. Just when you think you have seen it all, the so-called pyramid ruins on the planet Mars reveal the unthinkable. This full-colour glossy book takes the reader on a riveting journey from one clue to the next, proving its theories at the hands of a whole array of forgotten ancient texts and artefacts. 292pp. N.B. Slight crease to foredge of front cover.
