The turtle swims slowly, her low, domed shell quietly breaking the dark surface of the placid sea. Overhead, stars sprinkle the sky with their cold light, but the turtle, whose eyes have evolved for the ocean she calls home, could not see the stars even if she looked straight up. No matter, for tonight her attention is elsewhere....In this engaging story of one of nature's most fascinating creatures, science educator Stephen Whitt follows a mother sea turtle on the most difficult and dangerous journey of her life, the journey home to lay her eggs. Along the way he shows young readers how the events of the universe, many of them both far away and long ago, have resulted in a world where a turtle may swim through a salty sea, struggle up a sandy beach, and dig her nest just beyond the reach of the highest tide.The Turtle and the Universe is a story of connection. Through the life and struggles of one female turtle, youngsters learn that the universe is a single thing. Everything within the universe is linked to everything else, by time, by origin, by ultimate fate. In the elements that make up the sea turtle there are shadows of an exploded star from far away and long ago. In the movement of the turtle's flippers is the energy of the fireball that began our universe some thirteen billion years ago. In the sand, in the seawater, in the eggs the turtle lays there are hints of the deep connections shared by all the things, and all the events, that we call the universe.Whitt also reveals how the actions of our own species are altering the world that we and the sea turtle share. He underscores the necessity of using our natural resources wisely to ensure the future of the whole interconnected earth.This elegantly told story captures the many wonders that science discovers in the natural world while teaching children essential facts of astronomy, chemistry, and biology.Stephen Whitt (Columbus, OH) is the director of Experience Programs Teaching and Learning at COSI (Center of Science and Industry), the science museum in Columbus, Ohio. He has published articles in Odyssey, Cricket, Highlights for Children, Yesmag, and Spider, and will soon publish the 2008 edition of Glencoe/McGraw-Hill's high school chemistry text.

There are countless worlds beyond the one in which we work and love and live and breathe. These are worlds of spirit, and they are woven throughout our lives, linking us to each other and helping us understand ourselves ... if we know how to listen. Turtle Journey: Synchronicity and the Universe, author Cynthya’s fresh, compelling, intimate novel, traces a journey through the life of Stella, who in this incarnation possesses a sacred spiritual consciousness that touches every moment of her physical life with glory—but only if her heart is open to its song. Stella’s family is a special one, and she is born a special child. She soon realises not everyone shares her experiences, but the universe brings her kindred souls whenever the need is clear. But then life takes over—new cities, work, a husband, a home, a child—and Stella one day notices that the spirits who stood by her side in childhood have faded away. She finds herself with a choice: continue on and let it fade or open herself once again to the Divine Plan, to the unfathomably large universe of existence beyond our Earth. This, to Stella, is no choice at all. Stella’s spiritual reawakening touches us all, regardless of where we are on this mortal coil. When we grow, and learn, and weave our own sacred journeys, we walk the path of our spirit guides, who are with us, always, simply waiting for us to let them in.

“An approachable potpourri, Upgren’s essays will delight and inform astronomy buffs, whether students or recreational readers.” —Booklist Why is a clear sky brighter near the horizon while a cloudy one is at its lightest overhead? What color is the atmosphere of Mars, and might it someday appear as blue as ours? How is it that the Milky Way casts shadows? Why does the Taj Mahal glimmer when you gaze up at it? In The Turtle and the Stars, astronomer Arthur Upgren guides us through the physical phenomena that produce our sky and galaxy in all their variety and moods. He invites us to contemplate the natural beauty of the universe: a leatherback turtle depositing her eggs under a sky lit only by Venus, a total solar eclipse in Venezuela, the play of the spectrum on the cathedral at Chartres. Sprinkled with references to history, literature, film, and music, The Turtle and the Stars is a treasure trove of information for armchair astronomers and naturalists alike.

This is Thomas King’s first literary novel in 15 years and follows on the success of the award-winning and bestselling The Inconvenient Indian and his beloved Green Grass, Running Water and Truth and Bright Water, both of which continue to be taught in Canadian schools and universities. Green Grass, Running Water is widely considered a contemporary Canadian classic. In The Back of the Turtle, Gabriel returns to Smoke River, the reserve where his mother grew up and to which she returned with Gabriel’s sister. The reserve is deserted after an environmental disaster killed the population, including Gabriel’s family, and the wildlife. Gabriel, a brilliant scientist working for DowSanto, created GreenSweep, and indirectly led to the crisis. Now he has come to see the damage and to kill himself in the sea. But as he prepares to let the water take him, he sees a young girl in the waves. Plunging in, he saves her, and soon is saving others. Who are these people with their long black hair and almond eyes who have fallen from the sky? Filled with brilliant characters, trademark wit, wordplay and a thorough knowledge of native myth and story-telling, this novel is a masterpiece by one of our most important writers.

This collection of short stories consists of tales of the North Dakota Turtle Mountains, Jack's boyhood home. The reader is pulled into that rather magical and historical place - an oasis of deciduous forest in the vastness of the Great Plains that straddles the US border with Canada. Jack uses his vocabulary and his artist's eye like he would a brush; to paint rich descriptions of the landscape that both entice and envelop the reader. His retelling of personal stories of his youth captures the essence of the people and lifestyle of the rural, pre-World War II Midwest. Today, gravel and macadamized roads have replaced some of the old wagon trails. SUV's, pickup trucks, and snowmobiles cover ground once traversed by cutters and dray horses. But in many other ways, life is lived seasonally today in the Turtle Mountains as it always has been. These tales intrigue and compel the reader to 'step into' Jack's past. This delightful diversion is certain to enchant and amuse.
