Book Description :

"In this remarkable journey, Mark Woods captures the essence of our National Parks: their serenity and majesty, complexity and vitality--and their power to heal." --Ken Burns Many childhood summers, Mark Woods piled into a station wagon with his parents and two sisters and headed to America's national parks. Mark’s most vivid childhood memories are set against a backdrop of mountains, woods, and fireflies in places like Redwood, Yosemite, and Grand Canyon national parks. On the eve of turning fifty and a little burned-out, Mark decided to reconnect with the great outdoors. He'd spend a year visiting the national parks. He planned to take his mother to a park she'd not yet visited and to re-create his childhood trips with his wife and their iPad-generation daughter. But then the unthinkable happened: his mother was diagnosed with cancer, given just months to live. Mark had initially intended to write a book about the future of the national parks, but Lassoing the Sun grew into something more: a book about family, the parks, the legacies we inherit and the ones we leave behind.

Book Description :

Many people first encounter Hawai‘i through the imagination—a postcard picture of hula girls, lu‘aus, and plenty of sun, surf, and sea. While Hawai‘i is indeed beautiful, Native Hawaiians struggle with the problems brought about by colonialism, military occupation, tourism, food insecurity, high costs of living, and climate change. In this brilliant reinvention of the travel guide, artists, activists, and scholars redirect readers from the fantasy of Hawai‘i as a tropical paradise and tourist destination toward a multilayered and holistic engagement with Hawai‘i's culture and complex history. The essays, stories, artworks, maps, and tour itineraries in Detours create decolonial narratives in ways that will forever change how readers think about and move throughout Hawai‘i. Contributors.

Book Description :

"When nature inspires our architecture-not just how it looks buthow buildings and communities actually function-we will have madegreat strides as a society. Biophilic Design provides us withtremendous insight into the 'why,' then builds us a road map forwhat is sure to be the next great design journey of ourtimes." -Rick Fedrizzi, President, CEO and Founding Chairman, U.S. GreenBuilding Council "Having seen firsthand in my company the power of biomimicry tostimulate a wellspring of profitable innovation, I can sayunequivocably that biophilic design is the real deal. Kellert,Heerwagen, and Mador have compiled the wisdom of world-renownedexperts to produce this exquisite book; it is must reading forscientists, philosophers, engineers, architects and designers,and-most especially-businesspeople. Anyone looking for the key to anew type of prosperity that respects the earth should starthere." -Ray C. Anderson, founder and Chair, Interface, Inc. The groundbreaking guide to the emerging practice of biophilicdesign This book offers a paradigm shift in how we design and build ourbuildings and our communities, one that recognizes that thepositive experience of natural systems and processes in ourbuildings and constructed landscapes is critical to human health,performance, and well-being. Biophilic design is about humanity'splace in nature and the natural world's place in human society,where mutuality, respect, and enriching relationships can andshould exist at all levels and should emerge as the norm ratherthan the exception. Written for architects, landscape architects, planners,developers,environmental designers, as well as building owners, BiophilicDesign: The Theory, Science, and Practice of Bringing Buildings toLife is a guide to the theory, science, and practice of biophilicdesign. Twenty-three original and timely essays by world-renownedscientists, designers, and practitioners, including Edward O.Wilson, Howard Frumkin, David Orr, Grant Hildebrand, StephenKieran, Tim Beatley, Jonathan Rose, Janine Benyus, Roger Ulrich,Bert Gregory, Robert Berkebile, William Browning, and VivianLoftness, among others, address: * The basic concepts of biophilia, its expression in the builtenvironment, and how biophilic design connects to human biology,evolution, and development. * The science and benefits of biophilic design on human health,childhood development, healthcare, and more. * The practice of biophilic design-how to implement biophilic designstrategies to create buildings that connect people with nature andprovide comfortable and productive places for people, in which theycan live, work, and study. Biophilic design at any scale-from buildings to cities-begins witha few simple questions: How does the built environment affect thenatural environment? How will nature affect human experience andaspiration? Most of all, how can we achieve sustained andreciprocal benefits between the two? This prescient, groundbreaking book provides the answers.

Book Description :

This book examines ritual practices and public festivals in the Otavalo and Cotacachi areas of northern Andean Ecuador's Imbabura province. Otavaleños are a unique group in that they maintain their traditional identity but also cultivate a cosmopolitanism through frequent international travel. Rituals have persisted among this ethnic community as important processes for symbolically capturing and critically assessing cultural changes in the face of modern influences. Ritual Encounters thus offers an appreciation of the modern and mythic community as a single and emergent condition.

Book Description :

The last book of the Ka Wana series, Hewa: The Wrong Way of Living looks at what behaviors are considered unbecoming in a Hawaiian and why. Early Native Hawaiian scholars wrote a lot about what constituted good and bad behavior in their day as foreign influences increased. Today, the dominance of American culture in Hawai'i forces Native Hawaiians to think carefully about how they can retain a cultural identity. This series, and especially the first and last volumes¿Pono and Hewa¿brings to light those traditions of Native Hawaiian culture that are essential to being Hawaiian, then and now. This book is one of eleven short volumes of the Ka Wana series, which is part of the Pihana Na Mamo Native Hawaiian education program.
