This gripping portrait of environmental politics chronicles the devastating destruction of the Philippine countryside and reveals how ordinary men and women are fighting back. Traveling through a land of lush rainforests, the authors have recorded the experiences of the people whose livelihoods are disappearing along with their country's natural resources. The result is an inspiring, informative account of how peasants, fishers, and other laborers have united to halt the plunder and to improve their lives. These people do not debate global warming—they know that their very lives depend on the land and oceans, so they block logging trucks, protest open-pit mining, and replant trees. In a country where nearly two-thirds of the children are impoverished, the reclaiming of natural resources is offering young people hope for a future. Plundering Paradise is essential reading for anyone interested in development, the global environment, and political life in the Third World.

Presented as a light philosophical commentary on living life on the wild side, PLEASURE ISLAND is a fable about the difficulty of keeping our dreams alive: even in paradise it's never easy. When our young narrator is handed down the Map Maker's legendary travel journal, he learns of the Map Maker's seminal journey to Pleasure Island, the wonderment and bewilderment, and of his struggle to keep paradise found from becoming paradise lost. The story reveals the secret behind the Map Maker's beautiful, evocative maps, and the reason he refused to travel in his later years, deciding instead to live vicariously through his own map creations. "A delectable dish of human foible, served with parsnips baked in irony oil, all topped with a sprinkling of satire-roasted fennel seeds." - Justin Hurwitz, Editor, The Harvard Lampoon

Set in the 1980s near Yakutat, Alaska, Hunter's Paradise: The Homecoming is the story of the Bootans, owners of a sixty-thousand-acre outfitter and ranch, Paradise. Paradise is a land of splendor with virgin forests, lakes, and streams filled with the abundance of wildlife. The head of the family is the tough and hardened but godly man, former Marine Master Gunnery Sergeant John Bootan. He and his business partner, Dan Lupa, are professional hunting guides. They book fly-in clients from the United States and other countries for Alaskan big game hunting and fishing. John's outfitter team includes four nephews, their wives, a niece, and hired help. Whether their story takes you to the war scenes of World War II, Korea, and Vietnam, the dangers of big game hunting, or the lost romances of their past, their courage and spirit exemplify the heart of a true American Christian family. In The Homecoming a thirteen-year tribulation continues involving John's oldest nephew Brandon. An emotionally torn veteran, who lost his most precious possessions before his Vietnam trauma: His faith in God, his wife to be, Marcy Lamore, and his dignity as a man. In a desperate search for a meaning and purpose in life, he is fostered by the sage wisdom of his Uncle John and the devoted love of his younger brother Bud. However, Bud's recent marriage to Elaine Petry is a threat to Brandon, fearing that she has taken Bud away from him. In their homecoming to Paradise, a clash between husband and wife, between brother and brother, and between sister-in-law and brother-in-law unfold. To save his family from destruction, Brandon seeks refuge at Little Splendor, land also owned by the Bootans. Months later after leaving Paradise, Brandon learns of a hunting disaster involving Bud and quickly joins his family for a search and rescue. It becomes a long journey back home for the Bootans as they struggle with the natural elements, their fellow man, and ultimately with themselves.
