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.

Edited By Fan,Ruiping
This volume explores Confucian views regarding the human body, health, virtue, suffering, suicide, euthanasia, "human drugs", human experimentation, and justice in health care distribution. These views are rooted in Confucian metaphysical, cosmological, and moral convictions, which stand in contrast to modern Western liberal perspectives in a number of important ways. In the contemporary world, a wide variety of different moral traditions flourish; there is real moral diversity. Given this circumstance, difficult and even painful ethical conflicts often occur between the East and the West with regard to the issues of life, birth, reproduction, and death. The essays in this volume analyse the ways in which Confucian bioethics can clarify important moral concepts, provide arguments, and offer ethical guidance.N.B.Small fade mark to base of d/j spine.316pp.

Seven Summits captures the drama, the grit and the beauty of a global challenge that has inspired mountaineers and armchair enthusiasts alike. - The only complete and fully illustrated record of this great mountaineering challenge - Stunning, evocative colour photography and fascinating real-life stories convey the endeavour, the pain and the glory of this renowned climbing feat - Contains a unique collection of diaries written by both foremost mountaineers and daring amateurs from around the world.
