Your Body's Many Cries for Water: You Are Not Sick, You Are
It is beginning to be accepted that many illnesses which today plague countless millions of people worldwide spring from a simple, unrecognised cause - we don't drink enough water. This is the medical discovery that Iranian-born Dr Batmangheldj outlines in this book - and if we drank more water daily, he says, many degenerative diseases could be prevented and sometimes cured. Dr Batmanaghelidj first discovered the curative powers of water in a crowded Tehran prison where he was held during the 1979 revolution. The only medic among 3,000 terrified prisoners, in desperation he prescribed a single glass of water for an inmate dying of intense stomach pain - and the man recovered within minutes. In that moment, he asserts, "a new era in the advancement of medical science was born". After his release nearly three years later, he escaped to the United States to begin leading his own gentle, healthcare revolution from his home in Virginia. Largely ignored by the American Medical Association after presenting his findings to them nearly twenty years ago, his defiant response was to write this book.

Zoe, a budding historian, comes to Malta with her younger brother Cal to learn more about their Maltese mother, as well as the mysterious circumstances surrounding their parents’ untimely deaths. The siblings’ well-mapped plans are derailed when Cal, who is a daily swimmer in the Mediterranean, discovers a girl floating in the sea, barely alive. The small, battered fishing boat on which she has journeyed from Libya to Malta capsized in a storm: Aziza is the sole survivor. Meanwhile, Zoe returns to the site of her parents’ drownings and stumbles across a trail of clues which lead to the discovery of an unknown family member, unearthing a chain of life-changing secrets. In Many Waters brilliantly mines the hearts and minds of characters in extremis, the unforgettable tale of the ways that we love and help one another and how the choices we make reverberate through generations.

Many Waters - Natural History of the Walla Walla Valley and
Many Waters is a testament to the beauty of an extraordinary place. From the Blue Mountains to the Columbia River, southeastern Washington and northeastern Oregon, in particular the Walla Walla Valley, is a remarkable region, one that American Indians called Wallah Wallah, or Many Waters. And for good reason. It's always been a bountiful place with its rich soils and streams teeming with fish. Included are more than 40 paintings by noted Northwest landscape artist Leslie Cain to illustrate the Walla Walla River, Mill Creek and the Touchet River as they make their way from the Blue Mountains through fertile valleys to the mighty Columbia River. Katrina Roberts and Janice King contributed six poems about the hills, farms, forests, flowers, water and rocks of the area. Among the short essays are one on fishing by Scott Elliott and another by Kevin Pogue on wine terroir. Geography and geologic history are followed by chapters on past and present animals of southeastern Washington and adjacent Oregon. Images by Duane Scroggins and 15 more photographers illustrate the magnificent landscapes, beautiful flowers, and interesting birds and mammals of the Walla Walla Valley and vicinity. Carson leads the journey, along with Whitman College geologist colleagues Patrick Spencer, Nick Bader an...
