When he's not writing bestsellers such as Rocket Boys/October Sky, Back to the Moon, The Coalwood Way, and The Keeper's Son, Homer Hickam goes dinosaur hunting in the ranchlands and badlands of Montana. His important finds include two Tyrannosaurus Rexes and numerous other creatures of the Cretaceous Period. Life on Montana's ranches comes with more than its share of trouble. The people who live there expect it-some of them even enjoy it. One of them is Mike Wire, a former homicide detective who now spends his days running the Square C Ranch and pining for its owner, Jeanette Coulter. But the badlands are home to more than horses, cattle, and cowboys. Beneath the surface are dinosaur bones that could be worth a fortune. When a paleontologist arrives at the ranch to dig, Mike senses trouble. Once discovered, those bones won't stay buried, and when a murderer begins to stalk the dinosaur hunting grounds, Mike will have to fight to protect the people and the land he has come to love.Read More »from Frankie Boyer's Guests for Wednesday 12/15/10

When the Past is Always Present: Emotional Traumatization, Causes, and Cures by Dr. Ronald A. Ruden, an internist and clinical research scientist in New York City, explains how and why emotionally re-experiencing a traumatic event coupled with the simple laying on of hands and other sensory input can successfully cure trauma-based illnesses. Dr. Ruden introduces "havening," a revolutionary therapy that cures suffering arising from trauma. Havening is the transitive verb for the word 'haven' meaning to 'put into a safe place.' The therapy is rapid and has no side effects, can be self-applied and uses touch and other sensory input as its primary therapeutic tools. Havening is an approach that goes directly to the subconscious where the trauma is stored. It is here that the brain's response to the event is permanently changed. While some forms of this therapy have been practiced for over two decades, many mental health professionals remain skeptical, given that it involves no medication,Read More »from Dr. Ronald A.

A Step-by-Step Program to Reduce Anger, Rage, Negativity, Violence, and Depression in Your Life If you get angry out of the blue, experience road rage, often blow off steam at your kids, get depressed for no apparent reason, or otherwise act out of control, then you need to read and heed this book.
