Life for us takes place in a world and whirl full of knowns and unknowns, answers and mysteries, beliefs and doubts, myths and rumors, the mundane and the days of storm. Each of us experiences in our way the same things --we love, we fear, we hope, we dream, we face tragedy and personal defeat, we discover joy and fulfillment. Through it all we find that life is a dance. It is, the author believes, what living is all about-trying to learn the steps to the dance. In this, K.A. Brace's first collection of poetry, To Travel Without a Map, he has tried to make some sense of those steps we must learn and to the dance.

Completely revised and updated with enhanced readability, James A. Bier's "Reference Map of Oceania" is the most comprehensive Pacific map in existence. Its main map and 52 inset maps of all major parts of the region provide a wealth of information in one source. Principal cities, towns, and villages are shown along with roads, topography, and population figures where available. The main map's Mercator projection is useful for planning routes. Time zones for the Pacific and individual countries are also included. It is the only map that clearly focuses on the political units of Micronesia, Polynesia, and Melanesia, using as its boundaries the 200-mile Extended Economic Zone. With more than 3,400 place names, "Oceania" will be an invaluable reference for everyone interested in or living in the Pacific islands, including teachers, students, historians, anthropologists, businesses, and travelers.
WHENEVER: A time travel romance Ever have to give a suck-tastic speech? Hayley does. In front of a Prince no less. As Hayley polishes off her Building Blocks of DNA speech, an idea hits her: Use the hot, visiting royal prince in her demonstration. Stand close to his highness-the untouchable. Go over his traits. Touch him. Win the crowd. Stomp all over Trallwyn Prep. Yes! No. The more she talks, the closer she comes to exposing a hurricane-sized secret--the stunning Irish prince may not be a prince at all. In fact, a fellow Trallwyn High School senior may be the true heir to the throne. Saying, "I'm sorry" isn't enough. Not for Prince Callum and not for the danger she's brought down on her team. Hayley will have to visit Ireland to discover the truth. Ireland: a land of tragic trinities, ancient artifacts, and time travel. Time Travel with a Prince! When she lands in medieval Ireland, getting the truth comes in second to getting home. www.EmilyEvansBooks.com
