Journey in the wild is a deeply reflective, emotive and thought provoking book from the author of "showers from the fountain." While depicting my ongoing struggle with illness in prose; it is also encouraging as it challenges me to focus on God in spite of difficult time. And offers strong dependence and trust in God. Pains and sufferings are part of life but we don't have to do it alone: "Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love." -Psalm 143:8 And the night comfort me with your presence and divine vision. In the day set your angels on guard to protect me from all harm.

"Frederick H. Swanson has edited Fraser's voluminous journals into a single volume covering three trips taken from 1914 to 1916. Fraser conveys impressions of the land that will fascinate any reader who wonders what the canyon country was like before it became a popular tourist destination - and one that will inform historians interested in early accounts of the region. Accompanied by a selection of photographs taken by Fraser and his fellow travelers, Journeys in the Canyon Lands brings to life the Southwest's breathtaking backcountry on the brink of discovery."--BOOK JACKET.

When we are in the darkness--whatever that is in our own particular story--the temptation is to believe that it's over, it's always going to feel this way, we will never be anywhere else or feel anything other than we do now. We fear the darkness, and for good reason. But it is in the darkness that new life begins. With an openhanded spirit and openhearted vulnerability, Leeana Tankersley reveals the darkest chapter of her own story, the thing she never thought would happen and could do nothing to prevent. Along the way she shares how waiting patiently in the darkness allowed something incredible to take root within her: a defiant and hard-won hope that is not dependent on happy endings. If you have lost your faith, your family, your health, your home, your security, your business, or your very self, Leeana wants you to know that you are not alone or forgotten. You are not doomed to stagnation or stasis. You are not worth less than you once were. Against every last odd, you can hope anyway.

A Scottish lost treasures collection of three classic Scottish travelogues, each offering a superbly descriptive narrative. Bundled by subject matter rather than author, the books create a compelling trilogy.

The best example I've seen of how curation and presentation can bring old books to new audiences" - The Observer "This strikes me as a fantastic venture, and one I hope will expand further" - Professor Willy Maley, University of Glasgow, Scotland on Sunday

This volume envisions social practices surrounding mosques, shrines and public spaces in urban contexts as a window on the diverse ways in which Muslims in different regional and historical settings imagine, experience, and inhabit places and spaces as »sacred«. Unlike most studies on Muslim communities, this volume focuses on cultural, material and sensuous practices and urban everyday experience. Drawing on a range of analytical perspectives, the contributions examine spatial practices in Muslim societies from an interdisciplinary perspective, an approach which has been widely neglected both in Islamic studies and social sciences.
