Naomi Judd's life as a country music superstar has been nonstop success. But offstage, she has battled incredible adversity. Struggling through a childhood of harsh family secrets, the death of a young sibling, and absent emotional support, Naomi found herself reluctantly married and an expectant mother at age seventeen. Four years later, she was a single mom of two, who survived being beaten and raped, and was abandoned without any financial support and nowhere to turn in Hollywood, CA. Naomi has always been a survivor: She put herself through nursing school to support her young daughters, then took a courageous chance by moving to Nashville to pursue their fantastic dream of careers in country music. Her leap of faith paid off, and Naomi and her daughter Wynonna became The Judds, soon ranking with country music's biggest stars, selling more than 20 million records and winning six Grammys. At the height of the singing duo's popularity, Naomi was given three years to live after being diagnosed with the previously incurable Hepatitis C. Miraculously, she overcame that too and was pronounced completely cured five years later. But Naomi was still to face her most desperate fight yet. After finishing a tour with Wynonna in 2011, she began a three-year battle with Severe Treatment Resistant Depression and anxiety. She suffered through frustrating and dangerous roller-coaster effects with antidepressants and other drugs, often terrifying therapies and, at her absolute lowest points, thoughts of suicide. But Naomi persevered once again. RIVER OF TIME is her poignant message of hope to anyone whose life has been scarred by trauma.

The poems in this book are selection of Tanka poetry, written by the author in a period of a little over one year. The book is divided into six seasons, The First Late Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall, Early Winter, and The Second Late Winter. During this period of fourteeen months the ebb and flow of the river of his life carried him through many changes and challenges. The early poems address a period of contemplation and preparing for change, as Going Home: Relaxing my graps, I let the small bird fly free; And I watch, afraid. Frantic wings carry her home; Without wings, I am still, lost. The final poem address a personal text of love, as in Love's Touch: Speaking with silence, Soft fatigue has settled here. Quietly, we wait. Leaving our thoughts unuttered. Holding, touching, one more time.

If you could go back in time and change things...would you? Author, David Russell once said, "The hardest thing in life to learn is which bridge to cross and which to burn." But my dilemma was learning from which bridge to jump. No one with half a brain would ever believe that jumping off a bridge could in any way, shape, or form, turn out to be a good idea. And I certainly would never encourage anyone else to take a potentially fatal plunge into a deep and rushing river. However, I am thoroughly convinced that taking that leap myself - might just turn out to be the best decision of my life. Timing...timing is everything. The impact jolts me like an iron fist. The water is arctic-cold. All of my muscles clench. I am pulled down - hard and fast and deep. Trapped in the tentacles of the swift current, the dark water becomes my mortal enemy. Now fighting for my life, I'm sure I'm going to drown... Just before the darkness takes over, I wonder... Did it work?

She finds herself, through a freak accident, transported back in time a hundred years to the same area. She is found, injured, by the local doctor, with whom a friendship quickly develops. She realizes that it will be impossible for her to continue in the profession of wildlife law enforcement and must now learn to live in a different time, where there are different rules pertaining to women. As she struggles to adjust to a life where all that she loved and knew has been lost to her, she is fascinated by the people around her and the lives that they are living. She wrestles with the difficult choice of whether or not to reveal what she knows about future events, particularly after meeting her own great-grandparents. As the days go by, she develops friendships and starts to put down her own roots, learning to accept what has been lost to her and embracing her new life, until the day comes when she is faced with the choice of staying or leaving forever.

Between 1970 and 1975 Jon Swain, the English journalist portrayed in David Puttnam's film, The Killing Fields, lived in the lands of the Mekong river. This is his account of those years, and the way in which the tumultuous events affected his perceptions of life and death as Europe never could. He also describes the beauty of the Mekong landscape - the villages along its banks, surrounded by mangoes, bananas and coconuts, and the exquisite women, the odours of opium, and the region's other face - that of violence and corruption.

At age eighty, Tony Taylor journeys from Sydney, Australia, to British Columbia to fish the Cowichan River with his eight-year-old grandson, Ned. The trip is an opportunity for Tony to return to a landscape that has had a profound effect on his life and his way of thinking, and to share this place with his grandson. As Tony teaches Ned the patient art of fly-fishing, a lifetime of memories, thoughts, and stories unspool in peaceful reflections by the water's edge. Fishing the River of Time is an elegant meditation on nature, life, and family, written with warmth and wisdom. It inspires self-reflection and an appreciation of the natural world and the fundamentals of our human experience. It is destined to become a classic work of simple living in the mold of Henry David Thoreau's Walden.

Cottonwood and the River of Time looks at some of the approaches scientists have used to unravel the puzzles of the natural world. With a lifetime of work in forestry and genetics to guide him, Reinhard Stettler celebrates both what has been learned and what still remains a mystery as he examines not only cottonwoods but also trees more generally, their evolution, and their relationship to society. Cottonwoods flourish on the verge, near streams and rivers. Their life cycle is closely attuned to the river's natural dynamics. An ever-changing floodplain keeps generating new opportunities for these pioneers to settle and prepare the ground for new species. Perpetual change is the story of cottonwoods -- but in a broader sense, the story of all trees and all kinds of life. Through the long parade of generation after generation, as rivers meander and glaciers advance and retreat, trees have adapted and persisted, some for thousands of years. How do they do this? And more urgently, what lessons can we learn from the study of trees to preserve and manage our forests for an uncertain future? In his search for answers, Stettler moves from the floodplain of a West Cascade river, where seedlings compete for a foothold, to mountain slopes, where aspens reveal their genetic differences in colorful displays; from the workshops of Renaissance artists who painted their masterpieces on poplar to labs where geneticists have recently succeeded in sequencing a cottonwood's genome; from the intensively cultivated tree plantations along the Columbia to old-growth forests challenged by global warming. Natural selection and adaptation, the comparable advantages and disadvantages of sexual versus asexual reproduction, the history of plant domestication, and the purposes, risks, and potential benefits of genetic engineering are a few of the many chapters in this story. By offering lessons in how nature works, as well as how science can help us understand it, Cottonwood and the River of Time illuminates connections between the physical, biological, and social worlds.
