Bestselling author Anthony DeStefano brings the vain and possession-loving Roxy the camel to life to demonstrate the familiar Bible verse: It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God. Little ones ages three and older will learn that possessions are only things...and definitely NOT the most important things. Brightly illustrated by Richard Cowdrey and written in engaging, funny rhyme, this storybook follows Roxy's journey from her waterless home in the desert to a great city of beauty she's heard about but never seen. Along the way she learns that the only way to attain true happiness is to share—or even give away—what she possesses.

A firsthand account of the shearing sheds of the 1950s and 1960s. The son of a shearer, Alan Blunt spent his teenage years in the woolsheds. As his father labored, Alan would imagine himself opening the batting for Australia or boxing for the world middleweight championship, only to be startled out of his daydream with a cry of: "Wool away, boy. Wake up!" In this colorful memoir Alan chronicles all the larger-than-life personalities he met: the misfits, romantics, larrikins, and psychopaths. From the cooks who ruled the sheds those solitary, often crazy men who could make or break a team's stay to the gun shearers and maverick managers. With an irrepressible wit, he captures the voices of the men he worked with and brings to life a golden era of shearing."

Do you approve of censoring the works of great writers? Some might contend that to bowdlerize a great writer's work would be to diminish its overall quality. Others, like Thomas Bowdler, whose eraser danced over every Shakespeare play, would argue that all modest people should be able to read a great work without blushing. For attacking the classics, Mr. Bowdler has been immortalized as the world's best-known, self-appointed literary censor. And because of his efforts the term bowdlerize has become eponymous with his name. Alternatively, the word bikini--defined as a two-piece bathing suit for women--has been a linguistic mystery since 1947 when these suits were first seen on the beaches of the French Riviera, a year after the United States began testing atom bombs on the Bikini atoll of the Marshall Islands. Some shocked people said that the impact of the scanty swimsuit on male beach loungers was like the devastating effect of the atomic bomb. Whoosh! A simpler and more credible notion is that the daring swimsuits resembled the attire worn by women on the Bikini atoll.Created about a century ago, the term eponym is itself a coinage from two Greek words, epi, "on" or "upon," and onama, "a name." But its broadened meaning, as dictionaries set it out, refers to a word derived from a proper name. For instance, Salisbury steak--a popular diner menu item created from common hamburger and dressed up with brown gravy to make it more appealing--is named for James H. Salisbury, an English physician who promoted a diet of ground beef.A Dictionary of Eponyms explores the origins of hundreds of these everyday words from Argyle socks to zeppelins. Written in an entertaining and anecdotal style, and with a foreword by Edwin Newman, the book includes a brief biography of the individual whose name became associated with an item or concept as well as information on how and when the name entered the language.If you've ever wondered just where terms like cardigan sweater, pamphlet, and robot come from, Morton Freeman does more than simply define them--he brings them to life.

Baby Boomers, Generation X and Social Cycles examines the population growth rates of the United States and Canada from 1789 to the present and shows that population growth rates have not always been uniform throughout history. When birth rates increased, baby booms were created and when birth rates decreased, Generation Xs were born. These changes in population growth have created recurring themes in history.Each baby boom was followed by a period of increasing activism. When birth rates declined, society entered a period of decreasing activism. In the 1900?s and 1910?s the women?s movement was revitalized to rally for voting rights, the settlement-house movement was established to help the poor and the new music was called Jazz. As a result of the baby boom of the 1940?s and 1950?s, similar themes re-emerged in the 1960?s and 1970?s. The women?s movement was revitalized for equal rights, the War on Poverty was carried on by governments and the new music was called Rock.In the 1920?s there was a great investment boom followed by the collapse of the stock market. Social security, healthcare and pension plans were the themes of the 1930?s to the 1950?s. Millions of people were given entitlements to these benefits for the first time. From the 1980?s onward, we have again entered a period of rising stock markets with a focus on pensions, healthcare and social security. Numerous histories and statistics are examined to show how changes in population growth have affected our social, political and economic life.
