Her story is told through the letters she wrote to her friends and family, with dramatic photographs by Bob Campbell, who worked closely with Dian for several years.

Vom Abenteuer fasziniert, von der Lust aufzubrechen getrieben, vom Glück unterwegs zu sein geflutet: Die Autoren der TRAVEL EPISODES leben, um zu reisen. Und sie erzählen uns davon – von abwegigen Landpartien, gewagten Unterfangen und der inneren Stimme, die sie immer wieder an besondere Orte führt: auf die Straßen Kabuls und Teherans, auf die Berge Norwegens, hinein in afrikanische Nächte oder die einsamen Weiten Alaskas. Aber auch davon, dass das Neue und Fremde nicht nur am anderen Ende der Welt zu finden ist, sondern überall dort, wo ein Mensch mit offenen Augen und wachem Geist die Welt und ihre Wunder erlebt.

Gorilla Justice Caged War Veterans and the Mentally Ill in Solitary Confinement - Toxic and Harsh prison conditions - a Reality check Gorilla Justice is an un-edited raw fictitious parable about a returning Iraqi war veteran who is incarcerated for a crime that may have been forgiven as an accident but was prosecuted under the guise of tough on crime rhetoric by politicians and local prosecutors yearning recognition and power. This book follows the ex-soldiers trials and tribulations as he combats those elements detrimental to his own survival as he learns how to cope with hopelessness and despair that contemplates suicide for him and many others. During his incarceration period he is exposed to the harsh and toxic prison environment as it really exists today in Americas darkened prisons. Cyrus Grossman, a former Army Airborne Ranger, comes home from the war and is basically a good person who has already experienced the impacts of PTSD from the war and other personal tragedies but suffers trauma through his denial for treatment and counseling. Cyrus is a fictional person who experiences reality strewn with real life events and experiences of persons incarcerated under such horrific prison conditions throughout the United States. Each event written resembles or counterfeits happenings in various prisons operating under administrative conditions that are reflections of Abu Ghraib type of DNA but seemingly ignored by the Department of Justice and those local state and federal officials in charge of protecting prisoners civil rights and offering humane treatment. The awareness to this phenomenon is brought to the reader through anecdotal and empirical evidence supported by many experts of solitary confinement and its psychological and physiological effects on the human mind. This book documents what Cyrus sees, hears, smells and touches the lunacy of his cellmates and fellow prisoners inside this man-made hell-hole.

Cambridge, England, 1905. Jane Porter is hardly a typical woman of her time. The only female student in Cambridge University's medical program, she is far more comfortable in a lab coat dissecting corpses than she is in a corset and gown sipping afternoon tea. A budding paleoanthropologist, Jane dreams of traveling the globe in search of fossils that will prove the evolutionary theories of her scientific hero, Charles Darwin. When dashing American explorer Ral Conrath invites Jane and her father to join an expedition deep into West Africa, she can hardly believe her luck. Africa is every bit as exotic and fascinating as she has always imagined, but Jane quickly learns that the lush jungle is full of secrets—and so is Ral Conrath. When danger strikes, Jane finds her hero, the key to humanity's past, and an all-consuming love in one extraordinary man: Tarzan of the Apes. Jane is the first version of the Tarzan story written by a woman and authorized by the Edgar Rice Burroughs estate. Its publication marks the centennial of the original Tarzan of the Apes. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

When you’re this smokin’, winning is a shore thing. . . . Jersey’s sexiest guidettes are back for another scandalous summer at the Shore, and this time, Giovanna “Gia” Spumanti and Isabella “Bella” Rizzoli are raising the stakes to find thrills and hot gorillas—unemployment, douchebag exes, family drama, and dingy apartment be damned! But when the girls unknowingly cross an overprotective mafiosa mama, all bets are off. Booted from Seaside Heights for good, the spunky, sequined meatball and her sensitive, quiet cousin are forced to flee to Atlantic City. Their escort out of hell is Fredo, a weird and scrawny but hooked-up club manager from a prominent family, whose master plan is to pimp out Gia’s psychic gifts at the roulette tables. Suddenly, it’s raining benjamins for the coiffed and tanned threesome. Top-shelf tequila and seafood dinners are not all they’re scoring. Bella snags a pale but talented boardwalk artist, Gia hooks up with a high-stakes poker hottie, and with Gia’s coaching, Fredo just might have a chance at becoming a certified juicehead. Or, at least, a gorilla-in-training. But when the casino suspects cheating, the trio is hounded by haters and tricksters determined to sabotage their endless summer. With hearts and loot on the line, losing is not a chance the crew can take. This time, the house isn’t going to win. . . .

Imagine that murdered primatologist Dr. Dian Fossey of Gorillas in the Mist fame were alive today and able to reflect upon her death as well as her legacy. This is the impetus behind author Georgianne Nienaber's compelling work, Gorilla Dreams: The Legacy of Dian Fossey. At the beginning of Gorilla Dreams, Fossey attends her own funeral and watches her murdered gorillas interacting with the graveside bystanders. She establishes a new relationship with the slain gorilla Digit, who acts as her guide after death as she carefully reviews her life, its challenges, successes, hardships, and the ultimate closure of her murder. Although Fossey's death is officially unsolved, recently released documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, as well as testimony from the International War Crimes Tribunal proceedings, offer new suspects, motives, and opportunities. Every fact about Fossey's life is meticulously annotated. However, the setting of her conversations with the murdered gorillas is obviously fictional, yet steeped in African tradition. Gorilla Dreams: The Legacy of Dian Fossey is a biographical interpretation of the famed primatologist's life that honors the African belief that the dead live on in spiritual form.

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.
