Barnes, Ruth; Branfoot, Crispin
This book explores the role of pilgrimage in Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and the religions that developed in India. It was written to coincide with an exhibition at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford (2006), but it is not a catalogue of the display. It is intended to be read independently, as it explores attitudes to pilgrimage in the different religions; it also includes accounts of individual pilgrimage, both historical and contemporary. Common themes emerge, regardless of religious affiliation. The departure from daily life is part of all pilgrimages. Along the way, the journey may lead past lesser shrines and sacred landscapes. The visit to the central shrine, the final goal of the journey, culminates in an intense spiritual experience. Reliquaries and souvenirs many help to hold on to this moment and transfer its power back into everyday life. Pilgrimage survives as an important aspect of religious awareness and identification to this day. 132pp.

Cooper, Jim
Log homes have come a long way from the wilderness cabins of colonial pioneers. With the advent of new technology and the ever-increasing skill sets of contractors, log homes have become one of the most luxurious kinds of homes built in America. With multi-gabled rooflines and glass-fronted living areas, these sophisticated homes have captured the interest of architects and homeowners alike. In this updated and revised third edition, Jim Cooper includes new information on 'green' construction techniques and materials. Whether planning a new log home or simply interested in learning more about them, readers will find all of their questions answered here. 288pp. N.B. Corners slightly bumped.
