Seriously. Look in any large commercial bookstore—you’ll be shocked by the sheer numberof books written on the subject. Especially bookstores associated with a university, and evenmore so, universities with a medical school. You’ll find Anatomy textbooks, many of them hefty tomes and others, slimmer, distilled, even pocket volumes. Also Anatomy atlases, someof these of the classic, masterfully hand-drawn kind and others, the increasingly popular slickphotograph and illustration variety; and Anatomy dissection guides; and an Anatomy coloring book or two. Elsewhere, there are likely Anatomy-themed novels, and more. So what, otherthan hubris or a tragically delayed middle-age crisis would drive me to now add yet anotherAnatomy book to this hopelessly cluttered pile? The only answer I have to this obvious but no-less-worthy-for-being-so question is “None of those others are like mine.” For one thing,there is the small matter of my three decades spent studying, organizing, drawing,explaining, encouraging, haranguing med students on three continents on all matters anatomical.

You are so lucky ! I always wanted to be a vet! was a recurring statement at any and every gathering which I ever attended. Yes I was lucky, or maybe I was a bit more determined than most. Thank goodness for a good sense of humour and a positive attitude to life, if a bit cynical. I learnt to accept with a good grace being woken for the third time many nights to see emergencies, most of which could easily have waited until daylight. I got over the God Syndrome and the inevitable loss of some patients only to have the immense satisfaction of pulling through some very diffi cult cases.

Edgar Award Finalist: The true story of a string of brutal crimes committed in the name of religious fanaticism and racial hatred in 1970s San Francisco. In the early 1970s, a small band of well-dressed, clean-cut African American men began terrorizing the residents of San Francisco with guns and machetes. Their victims ranged from a teenage Salvation Army cadet to a middle-aged Jordanian grocer to an eighty-one-year-old janitor. The streets became deserted and tourism plunged. It took months before the culprits could be identified, with the help of an informer. They were members of a Black Muslim cult aspiring to earn the title “Death Angel” by slaughtering white victims. Combining history and dramatic recreations, this is the “repellent but riveting” in-depth story of a horrifying killing spree and the fanatical hatred that drove it—and the SFPD’s desperate quest to take the culprits down (Kirkus Reviews). “[Clark Howard’s] pounding narrative meticulously describes the so-called Zebra killings of 1973–74, when 23 white San Franciscans were murdered or maimed by a group of Black Muslim extremists. In the retelling, the cold jargon of police files leaps starkly to life.” —Time

Exotic animals range in appearance from truly striking to seemingly ordinary, and they live in wildlife preserves, on farms, in parks, and even in the wilderness across the United States. In this book, Elizabeth Cary Mungall provides ample information for anyone, from park visitor and zoo goer to rancher and wildlife biologist, who wants to identify and learn more about exotic wildlife in the United States. Richard D. Estes, author of The Safari Companion, says that "for everyone interested in exotic hoofed stock, Exotic Animal Field Guide is a well-written and beautifully illustrated book that fills a vacant niche." Indeed, the main portion of the book contains fully illustrated species accounts of eighty different kinds of hoofed animals, with native range maps and information about food habits, habitat, temperament, breeding and birth seasons, and fencing needs. A list of exotics-related organizations and a reference section round out the text. Photographs of each species make the book both attractive and useful as a field tool. In a chapter on photographing exotics, Christian Mungall shows readers how to take their own great pictures of these animals. Clearly, as James G. Teer, of the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences at Texas A&M University states, this is "much more than a field guide. Elizabeth Cary Mungall's book is a long awaited repository and data source on the ecology, technology, and management of more than 80 species of non-native hoofed animals. . . . Anyone with exotics on his or her property will require Exotic Animal Field Guide."

Author: Les O'Brien
“Lengang’arangetengop. At no time in human history has a book started with that name, I bet.” And so begins the true story of a Calgary man’s life-changing journey to Africa and the start of his life-long friendship with a Samburu warrior with an impossibly long name. On his first day at a Kenyan nature reserve, elephant expert Les O’Brien finds himself sought out by a park guide who is hungry to learn from him. But the tables quickly turn, and soon Lengang’arangetengop – who graciously allows tourists to call him “Steve” and his friends to call him “Tilas” – becomes the teacher. Tilas not only shares his knowledge of his environment and the beauty of Africa with his new friend, he also teaches him about the way of the Samburu – a semi-nomadic people who carry everything they own with them as they travel the African plains. From his new friend, Les learns about loyalty, friendship, responsibility, environmental stewardship, and how to be a better human. More than a travel book, Call Me Steve is a story of self-discovery and friendship in a land like no other. This book will make you laugh, cry, and then google Samburu National Reserve so you can begin to arrange your own trip there.

Author: Detlev Dr. Henschel
Detlev spent many years living and working as a tour guide and safari operator in Namibia. Namibia – dust, stars and tranquillity; Namibia – part old, mystical Africa, part modern world, merged together yet distinctly separate. Along with his friend and total outdoor rookie Stefan and two Mountain Damara, Collin !Uiseb and Jonny B Good (‘Brandberg Bushmen’), whom they befriend, they set off on a trekking expedition on the Brandberg, an isolated, 600-square-kilometre massif at the heart of the oldest desert in the world, the Namib. On this safari to the mountain off the beaten track, they re-live tales of a bygone era. Detlev transports the reader into a completely different world, where the European mind-set and perceptions are completely out of place. Namibia has many African tribes with their own cultures and language, including its white population, who also see themselves as Africans, of course. Namibia is a desert country yet home to 6,000 different plant species – even more than in Europe! Moreover, Namibia boasts the full spectrum of Africa’s wild animals, which roam around freely. With its infinite deserts, dense savannah and thick jungle, Namibia is a country where adventures are born. This book is anything but a cushy farm holiday far from the reality of Africa! It also includes colour pictures.

Publisher: Transaction Publishers
Category: Sports & Recreation
In this fascinating analysis of the development, structure, and strategies of sports, Bell argues that games are an institution that not only reflect society but also mold society. He develops a typology of seven game levels from the primitive to the decadent and examines the history of game development in Western civilization, through the relation of the various game levels to national ambitions and strategies. To Play the Game is both enlightening and entertaining, an original contribution to the growing scholarship on sports.

Publisher: University of Virginia Press
In the quiet halls of the natural history museum, there are some creatures still alive with stories, whose personalities refuse to be relegated to the dusty corners of an exhibit. The fame of these beasts during their lifetimes has given them an iconic status in death. More than just museum specimens, these animals have attained a second life as historical and cultural records. This collection of essays—from a broad array of contributors, including anthropologists, curators, fine artists, geographers, historians, and journalists—comprises short "biographies" of a number of famous taxidermized animals. Each essay traces the life, death, and museum "afterlife" of a specific creature, illuminating the overlooked role of the dead beast in the modern human-animal encounter through practices as disparate as hunting and zookeeping. The contributors offer fresh examinations of the many levels at which humans engage with other animals, especially those that function as both natural and cultural phenomena, including Queen Charlotte’s pet zebra, Maharajah the elephant, and Balto the sled dog, among others. Readers curious about the enduring fascination with animals who have attained these strange afterlives will be drawn to the individual narratives within each essay, while learning more about the scientific, cultural, and museological contexts of each subject. Ranging from autobiographical to analytical, the contributors’ varying styles make this delightful book a true menagerie. Contributors: Samuel J. M. M.
