Stalking The Wild Asparagus
"Hood, Alan C. & Company, Inc."
Simply the best book on wild food
I bought this book as a teenager and still sit down with my ragged copy several times a year, always amazed at the new nuances I learn from it. Euell Gibbons was truly a master at what he did. He wrote from vast personal experience, without pretense, in a friendly tone that makes his readers love him. He was so folksy you can almost forget how extensive was the knowledge that he shared. But the ...
Eileen Bridgeman Biernat
Beaver's Pond Press
Eileen, Just finished your book (doesn't that sound neat?) yesterday, so the timing is perfect with the Primetime special airing tonight. L o v e d the book. As you said, parts were very creepy and hard to even read. I had no idea this had all happened in our state! You, did a wonderful job of bringing this complicated and gripping story to life. You made it easy to understand ...
Stalking Irish Madness: Searching for the Roots of My Family's Schizophrenia
Stalking Irish Madness:Searching for the Roots of My Family's Schizophrenia
I really enjoyed this book immensely. It was so sad and it hit home with my own feelings. I was impressed with his writing and the history was great and the best part was his love for his sisters. It was shared already with several people that have children affected by this disease by far the worst disease on earth. It robs young people of a life. I enjoyed the book and would highly recommend it.

Stalking the Black Swan: Research and Decision Making in a World of Extreme Volatility (Columbia Business ...
Kenneth A. Posner
Columbia University Press
Fascinating analysis, down-to-earth recommendations for decisionmakers
This is an unusual, excellent book. It combines practical advice with a sophisticated discussion of the mathematical, social, and psychological conditions that can cripple even the most intelligent forecasters. The problems Posner describes affect people not just in finance but also in intelligence work, meteorology, psychology, engineering, government, journalism and many other fields. But ...
Stalking the Wild Pendulum: On the Mechanics of Consciousness
An interpretation of existence and how it all works
It has to be noted that this book was first copyrighted in 1977, with my paperback being a 1988 edition. I suspect at the time of its writing that it was a bold step in defining the nature of reality. It contains many elements that others have written of since. How odd that the author got his work published and then met his death two years later. Perhaps his "job" on this reality had been ...
#1 Riley Spartz mystery. Riley is a television reporter in the Twin Cities, MN area--until recently, a top-notch investigative reporter. Her star has fallen considerably over the past year, however, as she struggled to put her life back together after the very public death of her husband Hugh Boyer, a former cop who had been working as chief security for the Governor of Minnesota when a firebomb ...
Stalking the Angel (Elvis Cole, Book 2)
One of my favorites!
So far, this is one of my favorites because I use to work in downtown L.A. and I live in West L.A. and everytime Elvis make a turn on the street, I know exactly where he is and can't help but laugh because he describes it to vividly, it's almost like I am in the car with him, thinking his thoughts, seeing through his eyes. I love this series!
Stalking the Soul
Helen Marx Books
One for My Therapist
Truly, my therapist needs to read this book. It's the blueprint of a relationship we struggled to figure out. We both knew it wasn't me; it was him - to a T, but we couldn't put our fingers on what was actually happening. The author explains the process of how one is pulled down, manipulated, and left wondering what happened. This isn't about the type of emotional abuse that is obvious, ...
Stalking and Violence: New Patterns of Trauma and Obsession
Stephen J. Morewitz
The Society for the Study of Social Problems. Knoxville, TN. Text evaluates the diverse and ambiguous nature of stalking in terms of its demographic and social patterns, psychological consequences, and organizational reactions. Includes discussions of cyberstalking, police intervention, treatment and incarceration, and legal ramifications.
Stalking Darkness (Nightrunner, Vol. 2)
Chilling but great!
I really loved this book as well as the first one in the series. Both are fast paced adventures with sorcery and magic thrown in. I won't give a detailed review of this book as many people have already done so but I will just add a few points. This book is very dark- in fact having read it I am experiencing nightmares. The author writes so vividly that as the sinister plot and scenes unfold you ...
Stalking the Red Bear: The True Story of a U.S. Cold War Submarine's Covert Operations Against the Soviet ...
St. Martin's Griffin
Under the radar
Having read "Stalking" I now have a much better appreciation of the risks and responsibilities undertaken by our submariners during a very dangerous period the extent of which peril was unknown to me. One slip-up and the missiles would have been launched. While the book perhaps goes into too much detail about certain operations and procedures it does give one the feel that the author knows ...
Stalking: Psychiatric Perspectives and Practical Approaches
Oxford University Press, USA
A Tour De Force on the Subject of Stalking
As one of the 17 co-authors of this text, it is appropriate for me to focus on how the text has been received by psychiatric peers. This textbook has been highly praised by the psychiatric community. Among others, two comments that have been made about the text include: "This is an exemplary review of what is known about stalking by a superb coterie of psychiatric scholars and clinicians." ...
Stalking The Blue-Eyed Scallop
"Hood, Alan C. & Company, Inc."
Brought back into print for a new generation of appreciative readers
The late Euel Gibbons was an iconic figure whose three books, "Stalking The Wild Asparagus"; "Stalking The Healthful Herbs"; and "Stalking The Blue-eyed Scallop" have been brought back into print for a new generation of appreciative readers by Alan C. Hood & Company. All three of these foraging 'how to' manuals are especially noted as being thoroughly 'user friendly' and packed with a wealth of ...
Stalking the Nightmare
An honest, savage, thought provoking view of life.
Ellison captures the fleeting emotions of life and shares them with us all. Whether it is the absurdity of just getting by (The three most important things in life) sharing the wonder of discovery (Saturn November 3) or showing us that it is still possible to live your life by your own rules and still succeed. Harlan's view of the world is honest, savage, vicious at times but never ...
Stalking the Puzzle Lady (Puzzle Lady Mysteries)
"It is a puzzlement," remarked His Majesty, the Yul of Siam
All things considered, one would not anticipate much of a demand for a series of mysteries in which the creator(s) of crossword puzzles endlessly stumble over puzzle-obsessed murderers. Nevertheless, there is not only one such a series in print, but two! And maybe, for all I know, a half-dozen more are lurking out there in the bush, as well. "Stalking the Puzzle Lady" is member of much the ...
Stalking the Divine: Contemplating Faith with the Poor Clares
Gaining Access to the Cloister
Kristin Ohlson stumbled onto the Poor Clares at just the right moment. It was Christmas morning and she was feeling bereft. A former Catholic who no longer believed in God, she impulsively decided to attend Mass at a church where she could hear the Poor Clares singing. Thus begins this intriguing saga of a search for faith and a newspaper story. I would call this Divine Providence. Others ...
Stalking The Healthful Herbs
"Hood, Alan C. & Company, Inc."
Best of the best...
A hundred years from now, I believe, the Gibbons books will still be regarded as first-rate texts. The science is, if not impeccable, supportive of Gibbons' readable and magnetic approach to edibles. He's a charmer, but not self-consciously so. His charm is in his love for the subject, and his expertise. Too bad Johnny Carson made a bit of a clown out of him, because he was anything but a ...
Hellhound on His Trail: The Stalking of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the International Hunt for His Assassin
The tragedy and impact of an assassination
In his new book "Hellhound on his Trail: The stalking of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the International Hunt for his Assassin", Hampton Sides unfolds those turbulent days of the 60's. This was a changing time period quite unlike anything that has ever transpired on American soil. Vietnam and assassinations filled the air and America would never again be the same. Sides searches the sources in ...
