The royal necropolis of New Kingdom Egypt, known as the Valley of the Kings (KV), is one of the most important--and celebrated--archaeological sites in the world. Located on the west bank of the Nile river, about three miles west of modern Luxor, the valley is home to more than sixty tombs, all dating to the second millennium BCE. The most famous of these is the tomb of Tutankhamun, first discovered by Howard Carter in 1922. Other famous pharaoh's interred here include Hatshepsut, the only queen found in the valley, and Ramesses II, ancient Egypt's greatest ruler. Much has transpired in the study and exploration of the Valley of the Kings over the last few years. Several major discoveries have been made, notably the many-chambered KV5 (tomb of the sons of Ramesses II) and KV 63, a previously unknown tomb found in the heart of the valley. Many areas of the royal valley have been explored for the first time using new technologies, revealing ancient huts, shrines, and stelae. New studies of the DNA, filiation, cranio-facial reconstructions, and other aspects of the royal mummies have produced important and sometimes controversial results. The Oxford Handbook of the Valley of the Kings provides an up-to-date and thorough reference designed to fill a very real gap in the literature of Egyptology. It will be an invaluable resource for scholars, teachers, and researchers with an interest in this key area of Egyptian archaeology. First, introductory chapters locate the Valley of the Kings in space and time. Subsequent chapters offer focused examinations of individual tombs: their construction, content, development, and significance. Finally, the book discusses the current status of ongoing issues of preservation and archaeology, such as conservation, tourism, and site management. In addition to recent work mentioned above, aerial imaging, remote sensing, studies of the tombs' architectural and decorative symbolism, problems of conservation site management, and studies of KV-related temples are just some of the aspects not covered in any other work on the Valley of the Kings. This volume promises to become the primary scholarly reference work on this important World Heritage Site.

I believe this book will be a great help both emotionally and spiritually to all those who are caregivers. I invite you to come and explore my journey as a caregiver.My story may be helpful for those contemplating leaving your loved one in a nursing home, or like me, you just left your loved one in a nursing home. You might wonder what's next. Where do you go from here? How do you handle this new giant in your life? What do you do when you come up against a Red Sea that looks impossible to cross?This book contains the chronicles of my journey during my three and a half years visiting my husband in a nursing home. It starts out with my fear of the unknown and thoughts of shattered dreams. It also conveys how broken dreams can be reversed and burst into true genuine life and living.I found out that this episode in my life was not to dread or fear. It was a time of growing into the person God created me to be. God knows how to make something authentic out of the ashes of our lives and turn our hopelessness into a time of hope and expectation. It's a time to fear not, and see the deliverance of the Lord. As we learn to sit still, hold our peace and remain at rest, we will see the giant go down and the Red Sea open up to allow us to walk-on dry land, into a future He has ordained for each one of us. There you will find Lilies in your Valley.

Originally published in 1943, SHE CAME TO THE VALLEY by Cleo Dawson became an instant bestseller. It is a story of the visions and successes, the heartbreaks and joys of pioneers who established the Texas-Mexican Border town of Mission Texas. Many of the incidents recounted in this book actually happened in the area at the time when thousands of “homeseekers” found in the rich Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas a place to start a new and challenging life for their families in the first decade and a half of the Twentieth Century. One such family was that of Ed and Willy Dawson and their two little girls who arrived by covered wagon through the brush country between “the Valley” and Laredo. At that time, Mission was near the end of the western end of the railroad whose beacon attracted those pioneer dreamers. Markets would now be possible for the fruits and vegetables growing in the lush Delta formed by thousands of years in the flow of the Rio Grande on its way to the Gulf of Mexico. A delightful read, SHE CAME TO THE VALLEY aims to provide a new generation an appreciation of their heritage from those early pioneers.

Revisit Grace Valley, California, in book 1 of this fan-favorite trilogy by #1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr. Unlocked doors, front porches, pies cooling in the windows—this is country life at its finest. But visitors don’t always see what lies at the heart of a community. Or just beyond… June Hudson grew up in Grace Valley, the daughter of the town doctor. Leaving only to get her medical training, she returned home and followed in her father’s footsteps. Some might say she chose the easy, comfortable route…but June knows better. For June, her emergency room is wherever she’s needed—or wherever a patient finds her. She is always on call, her work is her life and these people are her extended family. Which is a good thing, since this is a town where you should have picked your husband in the ninth grade. Grace Valley is not exactly the place to meet eligible men—until an undercover DEA agent suddenly starts appearing at all sorts of strange hours. Everybody has secrets down in the valley. Now June has one of her own. Originally published in 2008
