Being Together in Place explores the landscapes that convene Native and non-Native people into sustained and difficult negotiations over their radically different interests and concerns. Grounded in three sites—the Cheslatta-Carrier traditional territory in British Columbia; the Wakarusa Wetlands in northeastern Kansas; and the Waitangi Treaty Grounds in Aotearoa/New Zealand—this book highlights the challenging, tentative, and provisional work of coexistence around such contested spaces as wetlands, treaty grounds, fishing spots, recreation areas, cemeteries, heritage trails, and traditional village sites. At these sites, activists learn how to articulate and defend their intrinsic and life-supportive ways of being, particularly to those who are intent on damaging or destroying these places. Using ethnographic research and a geographic perspective, Soren C. Larsen and Jay T. Johnson show how the communities in these regions challenge the power relations that structure the ongoing (post)colonial encounter in liberal democratic settler-states. Emerging from their conversations with activists was a distinctive sense that the places for which they cared had agency, a “call” that pulled them into dialogue, relationships, and action with human and nonhuman others. This being-together-in-place, they find, speaks in a powerful way to the vitalities of coexistence: where humans and nonhumans are working to decolonize their relationships; where reciprocal guardianship is being stitched back together in new and unanticipated ways; and where a new kind of “place thinking” is emerging on the borders of colonial power.

In 1951, three young women from Quilpie in south west Queensland ventured off to see the world in their own ‘little green Ford’. They rode camels at the great pyramids, picnicked among the monoliths of Stonehenge, attended the Royal Ascot races, joined a grouse shooting expedition in Wales and negotiated the traffic in France. Frances tells her fascinating and light hearted story of an eight month trip to post war to Europe via Singapore with stop overs in India, Egypt and Rome, and home across America. This is international travel in another era. Apart from this initial fling overseas, Frances spent the first 50 years of her life in western Queensland where the closest neighbour was 30 km away and 1100 km from the capital city, Brisbane. Raising, and actually teaching eight children before they all went off to boarding school in Grade 6, was taken in her stride.

As her mind decays, an old woman revisits her childhood, the trauma of her trek out of Rangoon, Burma and the challenges of life in an Australian migrant camp following the War. Death is elusive and in her search for release, Yolande's mind, like her life, hurtles 'all over the place'. Linked by the bond between mothers, daughters and sisters in a range of poignant contexts, the narrative is subtly feminist and also surfaces sub-themes of multicultural and transcultural significance. The strength of nurturing relationships is exposed in this kaleidoscope of fragments-all that remain of a rich life eroded and distorted by dementia. Daughters who find themselves dealing with the emotional burden of caring for their mothers and their own daughters will find inspiration in the pathos and compassion generated among the characters. Catapulted from the comfortable life of colonial Rangoon into the hardship of hunger fear, rejection and poverty, Yolande demonstrates the tenacity of unfailing love. The narrative has appeal for all who believe in the beauty, strength and vulnerability of women.

Some people are meant to travel the globe, to unwrap its secrets and share them with the world. And some people have no sense of direction, are terrified of pigeons, and get motion sickness from tying their shoes. These people are meant to stay home and eat nachos. Geraldine DeRuiter is the latter. But she won't let that stop her. Hilarious, irreverent, and heartfelt, All Over the Place chronicles the years Geraldine spent traveling the world after getting laid off from a job she loved. Those years taught her a great number of things, though the ability to read a map was not one of them. She has only a vague idea of where Russia is, but she now understands her Russian father better than ever before. She learned that what she thought was her mother's functional insanity was actually an equally incurable condition called "being Italian." She learned what it's like to travel the world with someone you already know and love -- how that person can help you make sense of things and make far-off places feel like home. She learned about unemployment and brain tumors, lost luggage and lost opportunities, and just getting lost in countless terminals and cabs and hotel lobbies across the globe. And she learned that sometimes you can find yourself exactly where you need to be -- even if you aren't quite sure where you are.

WHO SAYS SECULAR PEOPLE CANT BE SPIRITUAL? What do cities mean to you? Excitement? Dreams and goals? Glamor? Escape? Danger? Romance? Artistically planned parks, zoos and museums? Shopping? Ohmygod skyscrapers and bridges? Gershwins Rhapsody in Blue? From Aristotle to Ayn Rand, writers have analyzed and gloried in cities as the greatest expression of Man the rational builder and inventor. Architecture, especially, makes the city the temple of Rational Man. Frederick Cookinham is a New York City tour guide, specializing in New Yorks colonial and Revolutionary history and in AYN RANDS NEW YORK. In THE AGE OF RAND Cookinham taught you to see the landscape through history glasses. Now learn to see cities through temple glasses. See the spiritual in the secular! Be uplifted by the sight of Mans achievements. Make the city your temple to Mans mind, and dont be afraid to get all Ayn Rand about it. Appreciate better the deeper meanings behind the concrete (and steel!) facts of where you live. Analysis and insight on Ayn Rands life and work, embedded in a guide to New Yorks architecture and public art, wrapped in a paean to cities: how they work and what they mean to us.
