by Darren SheriffI have worked in the nursery and garden center business now since 2003. I have seen many things change here in the Lowcountry, of South Carolina, (Zone 8) everything from rapid growth and building to roads seeming being widened on a continuous basis, and many transplants from other parts of the country moving into the area. It is the last part of that statement that is the reason for this book! Never a day goes by that I meet somebody that is definitely NOT from around here. They come into the ... more

In a relatively short period (geologically speaking!) of only 25 million years, southern Utah was at times covered with an ocean teeming with life, swampy shorelines, and massive rivers draining an huge mountain range in the west. The diversity of plant and animal life was astonishing, and the incredible fossil discoveries in these rocks have become a critical piece in a puzzle that stretc... more

by John DawsonThe purpose of this treatise is: 1) to draw attention to the presence of situations arising within medical practice in which religious beliefs play an important role. 2) to emphasize the fact that most students and many doctors are given insufficient training in such matters, which are of considerable import to a fair percentage of the public. 3) to provide a few examples of what is meant by a religio-medical situation, and a bibliography for further exploration by the initiate in such matters.
