Synopsis: Joel and his classmates are learning about protecting the environment from his teacher, Mrs. Stone. His aunt teaches him a valuable lesson about the importance of bees to vegetables and flowers. ​He loves to take walks with his grandfather. Unfortunately, they often encounter litter, everywhere they walk. Each time they see litter in the environment, a lively conversation takes place. Sometimes it’s anger about the kind of plastics they find. Often, it’s about how to stop the littering. ​Come along on their adventures as we see: a big blue garbage bag cutting off a town’s water supply; man’s best friend suffer when it swallows a pizza takeout bag; a magnificent eagle nearly perish when it gets plastic drink rings trapped around its beak; and a Minkie whale fears it may end up stranded on a beach when it gets tangled up in part of a fishing net. You can even learn how they helped the Puffin and Petrel Patrol rescue young puffin seabirds when they became lost around the town of Witless Bay. ​Includes activity pages for children, to express ways they can help improve our environment. ​Publisher: Kindle Direct Publishing

When a woman is tired of the mental and physical abuse of her alcoholic husband, she travels from Boston to the most easterly city in North America, St. John's. Alone and destitute, she is taken in by a widow and her sons and cared for. A five year old girl, living in a small Labrador town, contracts tuberculosis, in the late 1950s. She is sent to a sanitarium to recover. She thinks she is going to a place to play in the 'sand' since the nickname for the institution is "The Sand." What she discovers is a far cry from what she had imagined. However, she receives kindness in a way unimaginable to her. Finally, a Santa is so caught up in delivering gifts to less fortunate children on Christmas Eve, that he forgets about time.

Synopsis: My book is a collection of events that I experienced as I walked along the Camino trails. First of all, it's about the relationships that were developed along the trail and many of the personal experiences that people shared with me as we were strolling along together on the Camino. Secondly, I've included some of the legends and stories that have grown up around the different villages and areas over the many years of pilgrimage. Finally, I've written down some of my musings that came to mind in moments of solitary meditation after an encounter with some interesting fellow pilgrim or it may have been when I was just communing with Mother Nature,decked out in her finest array. As an extra, in the book, I have included our little adventures that my wife, Lyla, and I may have taken before we started hiking or at the end of each hiking journey.
