Sharing Our Stories of Survival:Native Women Surviving Violence
Living Beyond Survival: Laughing, Loving, Sharing...Life!: Van Johns
SURVIVAL IN SAMILAND, Cultural cookbook and stories after seasons in the Swedish mountains, is an important and unique book. The lives of both the indigenous people in Scandinavia; the Sami and the pioneers in the Swedish northern mountains were hard. Mostly because of the climate they had to be both creative and cooperative when times were tough. Usually you read about problems when two cultures have to live together sharing the same space. There are other more positive stories too. This is one of them and this book is a proof of those good things can be created when we come together and share our knowledge. In the book you will also find a number of specially selected recipes from Annica, Karin and families of pupils at the school Saxnäs, Vilhelmina. Still, it is the recipes importance from a cultural perspective that is the books theme: how the lives and food followed the changing seasons and how their lives were influenced by the landscape in which they lived and worked. Read the stories about how Sami and pioneer families in Vilhelminas mountain villages used to live, when this was still roadless land... The authors upbringing and experiences of mountain culture have formed the basis of the books content. This meeting of generations in their home surroundings is unique. -
Multiple personalities take over Sarah´s mind...only so they can protect her. Abducted by her father when she was three, Sarah found herself in a world of criminal neglect and unfathomable oppression as her father and stepmother perpetrated more and more horrible acts of verbal, mental and sexual abuse on the innocent girl. So continually terrified was Sarah that she began to form separate personalities so that she herself did not have to face the hideous reality of her day-to-day life. Only through the nightmare pictures that the other personalities sometimes presented to her while she slept did Sarah have any hint about the horrific abuse she was being subjected to. The personalities would block out time for Sarah and bear the horror of the experiences themselves so that their dear Sarah would not have to. Although the names in this unforgettable story have been changed from those in real life, the horrors that occurred are factual. This tale of the author´s early life - a life on the run, hungry, terrified, and molested - is a true and unnervingly gripping account of the extremes of neglect and mistreatment a child can undergo. Bitter Memories: A Memoir of Heartache and Survival is dedicated to all adult survivors of abuse and is written with the hope that exposing these horrors will help to prevent them from happening to others. Child abuse is a national epidemic. By sharing my story, I hope people will get involved when they see, or suspect, child abuse. Call the police! You could make a difference in a child´s life so he or she wouldn´t have to endure a life of pain. To the survivors of abuse, by telling my story it can give hope. They will learn they are not alone and there is healing on the other side of those feelings that try to destroy a life of happiness. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Roni Gallimore.

It’s December 1997, and a man-eating tiger is on the prowl outside a remote village in Russia’s Far East. The tiger isn’t just killing people, it’s annihilating them, and a team of men and their dogs must hunt it on foot through the forest in the brutal cold. As the trackers sift through the gruesome remains of the victims, they discover that these attacks aren’t random: the tiger is apparently engaged in a vendetta. Injured, starving, and extremely dangerous, the tiger must be found before it strikes again. As he re-creates these extraordinary events, John Vaillant gives us an unforgettable portrait of this spectacularly beautiful and mysterious region. We meet the native tribes who for centuries have worshipped and lived alongside tigers, even sharing their kills with them. We witness the arrival of Russian settlers in the 19th and early 20th centuries, soldiers and hunters who greatly diminished the tiger populations. And we come to know their descendants, who, crushed by poverty, have turned to poaching and further upset the natural balance of the region. This ancient, tenuous relationship between man and predator is at the very heart of this remarkable book. Throughout, we encounter surprising theories of how humans and tigers may have evolved to coexist, how we may have developed as scavengers rather than hunters, and how early Homo sapiens may have fit seamlessly into the tiger’s ecosystem. Above all, we come to understand the endangered Siberian tiger, a highly intelligent super-predator that can grow to 10 feet long, weigh more than 600 pounds, and range daily over vast territories of forest and mountain. Beautifully written and deeply informative, The Tiger circles around three main characters: Vladimir Markov, a poacher killed by the tiger; Yuri Trush, the lead tracker; and the tiger himself. It is an absolutely gripping tale of man and nature that leads inexorably to a final showdown in a clearing deep in the taiga. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Vaillant.

Surviving in the wild takes a great deal of strength. Often faced with frozen tundra, sweltering deserts, humid jungles, perilous mountains and fast-flowing rivers, Megan Hine is no stranger to perilous conditions. Whilst leading expeditions and bushcraft survival courses, and in her work on television shows such as Bear Gryll´s Mission Survive and Running Wild, she has explored the corners of the globe in pursuit of adventure. Faced with the toughest of conditions - bad weather, lack of food and being in the presence of predators - is the ultimate test of character, and often the biggest challenge to overcome is in the head. In these situations the human brain is simultaneously the greatest asset and biggest liability. Not everyone is suited to the great outdoors, and when danger calls many aren´t as well equipped to survive; no amount of top-of-the-range kit will save you if you don´t have the right frame of mind. Here Megan Hine examines the human ability and instinct for survival, showing us how others have developed the attitudes and attributes to thrive in the most dangerous situations and how those same attitudes and attributes help them confront problems and obstacles at work and at home. Being chased through the jungle by armed opium farm guards, abseiling past bears and lighting fires with tampons - Megan has seen and done it all. In Mind of a Survivor, she takes you along for a series of life-and-death adventures and shows you what happens to people when they are pushed to their limits. Inspirational rather than instructional, Mind of a Survivor examines the human ability and instinct for survival, sharing the life tools that Megan uses and showing how they can as easily be applied to more domestic everyday life - from careers to relationships, from overcoming adversity to decision making. Filled with Megan´s own experiences, Mind of a Survivor is packed full of adventure and can help peo... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Megan Hine.

A complete three book EMP survival fiction boxed set for your end of the world enjoyment. After the post-apocalyptic classic books contained in The Prepper Trilogy told the thrilling dystopian tale of how our wayward survivors arrived at their lake refuge, the Prepper Road Saga picks up and finds them now trying to live a long-term existence in a post collapse grid down world. Hear about how they struggle to survive a harsh winter as their thoughts turn with dread toward the approaching Christmas holiday season. New people have joined the survival community and wild game has gotten very scarce now after over hunting has forced everyone to forage continuously further afield for sustenance. Instead of a season of joy and sharing to look forward to, a season of austerity and foreboding awaits our survivors. They must use all their prepper wits and survival hunting and trapping tricks and skills to just avoid starvation every day. Trying to retain some hope that things will get better gets harder for the refugees as they struggle to cope as fishing now has gotten worse and their resources grow more meager. 1.

What started as a flu outbreak on a military base proves deadlier than Ebola and more contagious than the Spanish Flu. Sympatico Syndrome is unlike anything the world has ever seen. Victims´ behavior is changing to accommodate the rapid spread of the virus. Former Navy epidemiologist Cole Evans is well aware of the rare, infectious diseases the military studies. He also knows, first-hand, the government´s stance on sharing information with the public, so if the media has already learned about the disease, then it´s far too late to contain the outbreak. Cole´s only chance to save his family is to establish a safe haven. Isolated, hard to reach, and with enough space for his brother´s family as well, he has the perfect location - if only they can all reach it before they´re infected. 1. Language: English.
