Title: Country Walks of a Naturalist with His Children
Author: W. Houghton
Description:

PREFACE.

In this little ebook my desire has been, not so much to impart knowledge to young people, as to induce them to acquire it for themselves. I have endeavoured to show that Country Walks may be full of interest and manual to all who care to make good use of their eyes. If I have failed, the fault rests with me for the way in which I have treated the subject. I am aware that I have occasionally used words and phrases which may puzzle young brains, but I hope that nearly all will be intelligible to boys and girls of nine or ten years old, with a little explanation from parents or teachers.

The chief, if not the sole merit of this little ebook consists in the illustrations which adorn it; and I must
express my sincere gratitude to Mr. Gould, the eminent ornithologist, for his kind permission to copy some of the magnificent drawings in his work on 'The Birds of Great Britain.' To Mr. R. S. Chattock, of Solihull, I am also deeply indebted, for the pains he has taken in reproducing, on a reduced scale, Mr. Gould's drawings, and for the drawings of the sticklebacks and the frontispiece. My generous friend and neighbour, Mr. Eyton, of Eyton, has furnished another instance of his numerous acts of kindness, in allowing me the use of Mr. Gould's work and of various woodcuts. To two lady friends I also express my best thanks; and last, though not least, to the publishers, Messrs. Groombridge, for the care they have taken to present

Title: The Yosemite
Description:


Chapter 1. The Approach to the Valley

When I set out on the long excursion that finally led to California I wandered afoot and alone, from Indiana to the Gulf of Mexico, with a plant−press on my back, holding a generally southward course, like the birds when they are going from summer to winter. From the west coast of Florida I crossed the gulf to Cuba, enjoyed the rich tropical flora there for a few months, intending to go thence to the north end of South America, make my way through the woods to the headwaters of the Amazon, and float down that grand river to the ocean. But I was unable to find a ship bound for South Americafortunately perhaps, for I had incredibly little money for so long a trip and had not yet fully recovered from a fever caught in the Florida swamps. Therefore I decided to visit California for a year or two to see its wonderful flora and the famous Yosemite Valley. All the world was before me and every day was a holiday, so it did not seem important to which one of the world's wildernesses I first should wander.

Arriving by the Panama steamer, I stopped one day in San Francisco and then inquired for the nearest way out of town. But where do you want to go? asked the man to whom I had applied for this important information. To any place that is wild, I said. This reply startled him. He seemed to fear I might be crazy and therefore the sooner I was out of town the better, so he directed me to the

Title: Pistol and Revolver Shooting
Description:

PREFACE

INTEREST in pistol and revolver shooting has increased very rapidly in recent years and par- ticularly since smokeless powder has been intro- duced.

The revolver and the magazine pistol now consti- tute part of the regular equipment of army and navy officers and cavalry troops. Regulations governing practice shooting with these arms have been issued and adopted by both branches of the service and by the National Guard of the various States. In the Na- tional Rifle Association and in the various State rifle associations that have recently been organized, pistol and revolver shooting has an important place, and the matches provided are largely patronized. In the nu- merous civilian shooting clubs scattered throughout the country pistol and revolver shooting has become extremely popular, and in many cases the majority of the members practice more frequently with the smaller arms than with the rifle.

Practice with the pistol and revolver affords training in sighting, steady holding, and pulling the trigger, which are the essential features of rifle shooting also.

On account of this relation, and the fact that skill with these arms can be instantly utilized in rifle shooting, the development of marksmanship with the pistol and revolver assumes national importance.

While numerous standard works have been written on the subject of rifle shooting, there is comparatively little information available

Title: The Successful Treasure Hunter's Secret Manual
Author: David Villanueva
Description:

There is nothing new about the discovery that buried metals give off an aura that can be captured by certain cameras. Louis J Matacia has been promoting a Polaroid camera for years as a major tool for finding treasure, which was great, The author found treasure himself using just such a tool. The problem now is that the camera is obsolete, although still readily available on the previously enjoyed market and competition from digital cameras forced Polaroid to stop making the film in 2005. The last original film pack the author bought was two years out of date and cost $60.

With the prospects of obtaining Polaroid film apparently worsening the author set about trying to find a solution and came up with two! The first is that there is a suitable Polaroid film readily available.

The second solution that the author describes in great detail is - wait for it - YOU CAN CAPTURE TREASURE AURAS WITH DIGITAL CAMERAS! Not collector's items like the Polaroid, mind you, but recent models that you can buy anywhere tomorrow.

And the digital camera works brilliantly. Auras can be obtained on gold down to a quarter of an ounce or less - that's a single coin or nugget! The camera can even discriminate between different metals- all from a distance and can be used anytime during daylight hours.

By definition, instruments that can reveal hidden treasure from a distance are long-range locators. But the author does not discuss expensive commercial long-range

Title: The Great Controversy (Original)
Author: Ellen G. White
Description:

The Great Controversy traces from ancient times the great conflict between good and evil and its universal compass. This book succinctly responds to questions of infinite love, human nature, generational curses and life's journey. Taking the reader behind the curtain to unearth the mysteries of the past that even prefigure the future. It probes into the characters of men and women birthed in bleak circumstances, embroiled in boiling and bloody disputes and tried in arduous crucibles through which are revaled tragic flaws and worthy virtues. Time and again, supernatural intervention dynamically shapes their courses while their choices, for better or for worse, make an ineffaceable impress on their offspring and societies. It distintuishes persons in expectation of a future hope and tenaciously embracing life-changing promises. The identity and character of God has been in much doubt since the beginning of time. Who is Lucifer, the archenemy, who has spent millenia warring against God and men? In this book, the great conflict is shown in the progress of the centuries, in which are evidenced the subtle attacks in our enlightened time. The reader would catch a clearer understanding of eternal issues at stake, the truth about heaven and hell and the great forever.
