Since 1973, Storey's Country Wisdom Bulletins have offered practical, hands-on instructions designed to help readers master dozens of country living skills quickly and easily. There are now more than 170 titles in this series, and their remarkable popularity reflects the common desire of country and city dwellers alike to cultivate personal independence in everyday life.
The Judeo-Christian bible begins with a description/ of the universe God has created. In the center of that universe is a tree laden with the gifts man needs. Man is made from the very being by God and charged with protecting that tree - the tree of life, of good and evil. Man abuses that trust. God does not punish man. Man is forced to live with the consequences of that mistrust. Much of the rest of the Old Testament describes the result of that mistrust: wars, murder, struggles, misuse of the land. Even then God does not abandon man. From a thunder filled mountain God attempts to reestablish man's trust in God. Man again abuses that trust. God sends prophets to help restore that trust. Some are ignored, some killed. God does not quit. Again through a tree God attempts to breach man's mistrust. This book will not look at the consequences of man's mistrust. It will concentrate on the poetic images the Bible uses to describe God's attempt to help us be aware of that trust. This history is told in a series of poems. I hope many will have experienced these thoughts. Even if no one even reads these thoughts, writing this book has given me a greater appreciation of the Bible and how so many of the individual books are so interrelated. I hope you enjoy the book and it helps give you a greater appreciation of the unity of the Bible. I hope it helps all human beings recognize our common unity and helps restore a sense of God's trust in all of us. I hope it will spark a sense that each of us needs to in some way make the presence of God real. The final part of the book has a series of questions young persons might be asking about the messages of scripture. These are questions adults may have asked when they were children, questions that might be helpful if we asked them as adults

Introduction Science does not have to be a scary thing reserved for people who wear white lab coats and work in sterile looking laboratories. Many scientists do not work in a lab. Some wear their favorite jeans, sneakers, and a T-shirt every day. Science does not have to be complicated by math. The basic concepts of science are as important as the math that is usually used to describe what is happening. Science does not have to involve experiments that damage the Earth or aid in making bigger, more powerful guns and bombs. Environmental scientists perform experiments that help the environment. Medical researchers do work that relieves pain and prolongs life. Science can be fun. If it weren't for science, we wouldn't have TVs, arcade games, ovens, TV dinners, microwaveable popcorn, bicycles, VCRs, elevators, escalators, cars, motorcycles, sewing machines, paper, or computers. Science is something that you can do every day of your life-using objects that you find in your house, in your yard, or at a store. When I was a youngster, I always wanted to know what made things work. I liked to do experiments. There were not many books that explained scientific principles using normal, everyday objects. Later on, as an adult, I wanted to write a few books that would help students perform experiments and have fun, while learning science at home. Sometimes it's a real drag to sit and listen to a teacher explain things. It can be much more fun-and more revealing-to perform these experiments and observations yourself. This book is intended to help you learn about science by performing experiments and making observations with items that you can find in almost any housewares store or housewares department of a large department store. You do not have to buy any of the items described in this book-you can examine them to see how they work while browsing in the store. But if you decide to do this, be sure to handle the merchandise carefully. Do not break or destroy the items or their packaging. To write this book, I went to a number of housewares stores and found many items that utilize scientific principles. Some of these items are so simple that you might not realize that there is a scientific basis to them. After you read this book, you might want to take some friends through one of these stores and ask them if they know why certain things work. Scattered throughout this book you will see a safety symbol. Ask an adult to help you whenever you see this symbol. The symbol indicates that the experiment is a little bit dangerous or difficult. I'd hate to see you get discouraged or hurt while you're learning about science in a housewares store!
This fictional saga of romance is framed in a poetic style.
