Book Synopsis Looking Into the Earth by : Alan E. Mussett
Looking Into the Earth comprehensively describes the principles and applications of both 'global' and 'exploration' geophysics. Mathematical and physical principles are introduced at an elementary level, and then developed as necessary. Student questions and exercises are included at the end of each chapter. The book is aimed primarily at introductory and intermediate university (and college) students taking courses in geology, earth science, environmental science, and engineering. It will also form an excellent introductory textbook in geophysics departments, and will help practising geologists, archaeologists and engineers understand geophysical principles.

Book Synopsis From This Green Earth: Essays on Looking Outward by : Sylvia Engdahl
Much has been said about the positive effect of the photos of Earth obtained by Apollo 8, which for the first time showed our planet as a globe, a fragile refuge amid barren surroundings, and thereby launched the environmental movement. The negative impact--the subconscious apprehension resulting from realization that space is an actual place containing little that's familiar to us and perhaps much that we'd rather not meet--is not spoken of. But it may be no less significant. Could this be one of the reasons why widespread interest in space died so soon after the first moon landing? For the past fifty years space advocates have been puzzled and frustrated by the slowness of progress in space and the failure of the public to grasp its importance not only to the future of humankind, but to the preservation of Earth's environment. But is it really cause for discouragement? In this book Sylvia Engdahl argues that in the light of history, it's not surprising that acceptance of a new outlook on the universe is slow. All past human advances have been made by visionary minorities without the support of their contemporaries, and our transformation into a spacefaring species will be no exception. This book also includes all of Engdahl's earlier essays about space, such as "Space and Human Survival," which has been popular on the Web for nearly twenty years, plus new ones about the priority of Mars and the question of whether we'll ever meet hostile aliens. In addition, an Epilogue contains the quotations from her Web page "Space Quotes to Ponder" about why a presence in space is vital to humankind. X-Ray is enabled and includes biographical information about all the quotation authors as well as the people mentioned in the essays.

Book Synopsis Remembrance Day by : Brad Thomas Batten
"I was tired of the violence it takes to become a man." In Remembrance Day, Jonathan Savage recounts his memories of growing up under the shadow of wars fought and carried home by his father and grandfather. He struggles against a history long past that punish generations of a family. While his brother finds refuge in the bottle, Jonathan fights a solitary battle against guilt, blame, and betrayal. He shares his memories with his infant son while sitting quietly by a lake. "We tell stories because the soul depends on them," he says. The story is a journey through scattered memories, of misplaced trust and blossoming love. It is about a childhood home. A ravine and a cemetery. And a war whose echoes reverberate still.

Book Synopsis The Seventh Plague Vessel by : Mitchell Frogge
The Seventh Plague Vessel is a narrative, which depicts the future history of the "fall of Earth" during the battle between God and Satan at Armageddon. The narrator is a family man that loses his family and drops out of society. Four years later he arrives at a plasma donation center in Omaha, NE where he observes the lives of several of the workers and patrons there. The stories completely change his point of view of life and destroy all sense of morality he has left. Thus begins the "fall of Earth." It covers the seven years of Armageddon and his part in it, with and against the powers of Satan. The narrator unknowingly carries God's first witness through the tribulation. The job of the first witness is to record the "fall of Earth" from the side of Satan. The narrator witnesses the breaking of the seven seals, the blowing of the seven trumpets, and the spilling of six of the seven plague vessels. As the years go by he becomes a general in the army of Satan, conquering North America as he searches for the Seventh Plague Vessel. Only at the end does he discover the fatal truth about the Seventh Plague Vessel.
