Foragers of the Terminal Pleistocene in North America
University of Nebraska Press
This book contains 12 different chapters, by different authors, each a specialist in their field. I am very interested in the Gault site of Texas and the chapter written by Michael Collins, Phd on the Gault site, is worth the price of the entire book to me! He covers many previously unanswered questions about Clovis, many good black and white photos of Gault -clovis artifacts, and microscopic ...
Remember Me (Dear Diary Series #2)
A book to remember!
The first time I read this book I was a sophomore in HS. I'm now a sophomore in college and still re-reading it! This was one of the most unforgettable teen books I've ever read. It made me laugh, cry, and taught me at a young age to not take the simple things in life for granted. The story is about a girl, Leeanne, who gets caught shoplifting and is sentenced three hundred hours of community ...
Terri's Story: The Court-Ordered Death of an American Woman
I have followed the Terri Schiavo story for many years and find this book one of the most well written accounts. This is an excellent book and I would recommend it. I am rating this book 5 stars.
Terminal Island: A Jack Liffey Mystery

Jack Liffey Survives!
Thank goodness it's not Jack Liffey that's terminal! Here's a wonderful new book that takes us back to Jack's hometown. We even get to meet a family member of his that he's hidden up to now. It's almost impossible to put this book down once you start it. Be warned!
Terminal Identity: The Virtual Subject in Postmodern Science Fiction
Duke University Press
awsome, brilliant, scott's the man
One of _the_ important books for anyone interested in Science Fiction's engagement with cultural issues. I've yet to find someone who had done any important work at the time of the books' publication who isn't in there somewhere. It's been called "interminable identity" by some but that's just because people don't have the patience to wade through the good stuff. an Important Book..

When the Focus Is on Care: Palliative Care and Cancer
American Cancer Society, 2004
helpful, easy to navigate
This book is great in that it is easy to skip through as you want to focus on specific chapters or topics without reading the whole thing. I do recommend reading their introduction and definitions of palliative and hospice care. The writing style is easy, very matter of fact, not overly academic, but doesnt talk down to the reader. The book talks about types of care, choices for the person who ...
Death Is That Man Taking Names: Intersections of American Medicine, Law, and Culture
University of California Press, 2002
Extremely informative, objective and intelligent
As an ordained minister, I found that I am able to speak on a much higher level, being able to eliminate the typical reactionary responses we are typical of hearing in this country surrounding the ethics of death. Particularly, for me as it relates the the issue of abortion, has the book been a god-send. Burt has systematically outlined the historical attitudes and public mores surrounding ...

Illinois Terminal, the Electric Years
Paul H. Stringham
An authoritative history
An authoritative history of the Illinois Terminal RR before the wires came down and the road switched to diesel-electric power.

Ahhh, the Terminal Sweetness of Terminal Bend
This is one honey of a book. The funny thing is, everyone has a reason to like it. If you're from some slow-poke, out of the way, have a birthday and get your name in the paper kind of town, you can read this book and relate, and see where you'd fit into this teeny world of love and prejudice and wisdom. But if you're not, if you're in some gangling Gotham of urbanity, reading Terminal Bend will ...
Dramatist's Play Service
I am starring as "BB" in an amateur production of "Terminal Cafe" in October 2002. This play is written exceptionally well. I love the way Tuttle makes even the stage dialogue sound Southern. The play starts off happily, and they way it grows worse is fantastic. I recommend this for anyone to read, and try to find a way to purchase the rights if you're interested in putting this play on. It is ...
