Hannah Nelson has been running for a long, long time. Getting out of the dysfunctional household she was raised in, she knows if she doesn't get out of the small-town she was living in, she'll always be branded with the same brush her parents and siblings are...white trash, no-account, good-for-nothing pieces of filth. But Hannah has dreams of being an artist. Whatever she touches, she makes beautiful. Determined to make a new life for herself, she takes her kitten, Duckie, packs up her four-door SUV and leaves. When she arrives in Corinth, low on money and out of options, she takes to parking in the back lot of the RGMC Truck Stop. It's close to the interstate and she has hopes of getting a job, maybe in town somewhere. Harley "Smokey" Richards and Davidson "Bandit" Richards are twin brothers who are bound by blood, and their oath, to the Rebel Guardians MC. Smokey is a Texas Ranger for the state's national park in the next town while Bandit handles the IT work for the RGMC as well as on a contract basis for several local firms. They grew up with two dads and one mom so that lifestyle has always appealed to them, but they've never found the right woman to claim as theirs. When Hannah winds up in Corinth, she draws the attention of the two men in an unexpected way. Can they break through her fear of the past? Will she allow herself to love both of them? **This is an M/F/M and may be unsuitable for readers under 18**

The years from 1820 to 1920 saw the sport of bear hunting at its greatest flowering. Much of the country was still wild enough to support large numbers of both black and grizzly bears, who in turn supported a remarkable assortment of bear hunters. Some, like David Crockett and Theodore Roosevelt, became internationally famous. Others, like Wilburn Waters and Holt Collier, are almost completely forgotten, though their exploits were just as extraordinary. The Bear Hunter's Century brings to life the hard, thrilling lives, of these men. Not just a book of adventures, this a fascinating social history told with wit and style, a penetrating examination of the often inaccurate lore of bear hunting, and a celebration of the amazing skills developed by the best bear hunters.

"The need for environmental leadership - the ability to cause and guide positive change toward a better future - has never been greater. While some may claim that leaders are born, not made, this book shows that leadership can be learned, and that overt leadership preparation should be made an integral part of professional education and experience." "Environmental Leadership captures an approach to teaching leadership skills that has been used successfully at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies - one of the nation's leading environmental studies programs. It contains a series of personal accounts by a diverse array of successful environmental leaders who discuss their path to leadership, the skills they found useful, and their view of the characteristics and contexts that are important to environmental leadership." "By presenting the personal stories of numerous leaders and encouraging them to describe their experiences, the editors demonstrate what they consider to be the soul of environmental leadership - the incredible breadth of both the responses and challenges that environmental leaders face. Environmental Leadership is an important resource for all environmental professionals who seek better stewardship of our environment and natural resources."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
