As the owner of one of the world's most elaborate sea glass collections, Mary Beth Beuke gets to talk about these prized ocean gems on a daily basis. Unfortunately, with each passing day, sea glass becomes more and more difficult to find, making the hunt more of a challenge to the seeker—especially one with limited experience in sea glass hunting. There are several reasons why the hunt is so important to the sea glass seeker. Some find their Zen moments in the solitude and beauty of the hunt. Some collect to add color to their life. The history, mystery, and discovery of sea glass are also strong forces that draw collectors to shorelines around the world, looking for these pieces of physically and chemically weathered frosted glass. Whatever your reason for wanting to learn about and start your own collection of sea glass, the window for doing so is closing as pieces are becoming more elusive due to a growth in sea glass popularity and a decrease in recent glass bottle production. In The Ultimate Guide to Sea Glass, Beuke provides information that will help first-time seekers start new collections and veteran hunters learn more about their current sets. Beuke shares her experiences in gathering her own collection via photographs of vibrant and rare pieces, as well.

Many have died in the Australian bush who might have lived had they known the appropriate survival skills. Bushcraft covers all areas of survival and camping activities: making ropes and cords, building huts, camp craft, finding food and water, making maps, starting fires, tying knots, and fashioning hunting and trapping gear—virtually every technique required to stay alive in the woods. With over 400 black-and-white illustrations and photographs, this book explains how to make use of natural materials found locally in any area, conserving instead of destroying native flora and fauna. It describes many of the skills used by primitive man, adding to these the skills necessary for modern man’s survival, such as methods for determining time and direction. The author, who popularized the term “bushcraft,” claims its practice has many unexpected results. By developing adaptability and honing the five senses, it will also improve your self-esteem and your ability to overcome difficulties in everyday tasks. The practice of bushcraft encourages self-confidence and counters the narrowing influence of modern living by broadening your horizons. Bushcraft is a clear, accurate, and reliable resource for anyone who wishes to face nature on its own terms with just a knife and this book.

Pregnancy is a major life event. As a mother, you want to know all there is to know about your pregnancy. Dr. Tamyra Comeaux, a practicing Obstetrician and Gynecologist, developed The Definitive Guide to Natural Pregnancy Health to help mothers take the right steps toward a healthy, natural pregnancy. There aren't a lot of resources for pregnant women looking for ways to treat their problems using orthomolecular medicine. This is a school of thought encouraging the use of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids to create balance in the body. Dr. Comeaux combines multiple resources into one easy-to-use guide, so expecting mothers can optimize their use of supplements to combat common and uncommon pregnancy ailments. Dr. Comeaux has found that prenatal vitamins, while they are a good start for any pregnancy, cannot be administered in a "cookie cutter" fashion. Women enter pregnancy having different levels of stress or medical issues that should be remedied by more or less of a particular nutrient. Many women are taking over the counter products or prescription medications before they become pregnant and question continuing these supplements for fear that they may harm the baby. Over the course of her many years of private practice, Dr. Comeaux has compiled numerous articles, studies and specific cases with her patients in order to make her findings available to a wider audience of responsible, soon to be mothers. The guide describes a variety of different supplements, lists common problems that she has encountered in her practice, and details the maximum amount of each supplement to be taken during a healthy pregnancy. Dr. Tamyra Comeaux is an obstetrician and gynecologist practicing in Houston, TX. She is a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology. She has a Masters Degree in Holistic Nutrition.
