Naturally occurring chemical compounds called polyphenols - found in abundance in green tea - have been found to be among the most effective of the antioxidants. And it is this important group of phytochemicals that has been identified as contributing to the prevention of cancer and heart disease, as well as having a wide variety of other healing abilities. Here, in The Green Tea Book, is a clear guide to understanding why green tea works, and how you can use it for both good health and great taste. The Green Tea Book begins by exploring the scientific research that supports this beverage's properties. It then focuses on green tea's long and rich history, from its centuries-old place of honor in Asian cultures to its growing use in the West. The book goes on to examine the individual benefits green tea offers - its use as an antioxidant in the prevention of cancer, heart disease, and stroke; its ability to promote longevity; its use as a digestive aid; its many benefits to women's health; and its role in fighting cavities and gingivitis. It even provides a practical section on choosing, brewing, and storing teas year-round.

Richard Marcinko's revelations in his explosive #1 bestselling autobiography, Rogue Warrior, reverberated through the highest levels of the U.S. government. But, bound by government restrictions, he was forbidden to tell the whole story. The answer was fiction. First came Rogue Warrior: Red Cell, the take-no-prisoners bestseller with Marcinko as hero. Now the Rogue Warrior's back and he's hotter than ever, in a knockout novel of courage and nonstop action. In Portsmouth, England, an aircraft carrier has been sabotaged, killing the American Chief of Naval Operations, one of the few friends the Rogue Warrior had left in the Navy. Marcinko discovers a holy war is brewing -- a violent religious movement, encircling the globe and zeroing in on the West. Defeating that menace will be the supreme test of Marcinko's GREEN TEAM, a top-secret unit operating outside the U.S. military's chain of command. But in Washington, the political wolves select Dick Marcinko as their sacrificial lamb. For the Rogue Warrior it's time to declare a holy war of his own. The enemy may have the ultimate weapon, but GREEN TEAM has Marcinko's Tenth Commandment of SpecWar: There Are No Rules -- Thou Shalt Win at All Cost!

MICHAEL STRELOW WEAVES THE STORY OF A TOWN and its mysteries in his debut novel, The Greening of Ben Brown, an Oregon Book Award Finalist for fiction 2005. Ben Brown, the protagonist, becomes a citizen of East Leven, Oregon, after he recovers from an electrocution that has not left him dead but has turned him green. He befriends eighteen year-old Andrew James and together they unearth a chemical spill cover-up that forces the town to confront its demons and its citizens to choose sides. Strelow's lyrical prose and his talent for storytelling come together in this poetic and important first work that looks at how a town and the natural environment are inextricably linked. The Greening of Ben Brown will find itself in good company on the shelves between Winesburg, Ohio and To Kill a Mockingbird and readers of both will have a new story to cherish.
The premise of Greening of the Self is that we are not individuals separate from the world. Instead we are always "co-arising" or co-creating the world, and we cannot escape the consequence of what we do to the environment. Joanna Macy's innovative writing beautifully demonstrates that by broadening our view of what constitutes "self" we can cut through our dualistic views and bring about the emergence of the "ecological self", that realizes that every object, feeling, emotion, and action is influenced by a huge, all-inclusive web of factors. Any change in the condition of any one thing in this web affects everything else by virtue of interconnectedness.Greening of the Self is visionary and future-oriented, making it essential reading for anyone who wants to discover the knowledge authority and courage to respond creatively to the crises of our time.Based on a chapter in Joanna Macy's bestselling World as Lover, World as Self.
Greensleeves is a 310 page romantic coming-of-age novel for teens and adults first published in 1968 and written by Eloise Jarvis McGraw, author of the Newbery Honor novels The Moor Child, The Golden Goblet, and Moccasin Trail. During the summer before she begins college, the clever and independent-minded Shannon Lightley, the first person narrator, persuades her uncle to let her go on an adventure in which she plays the role of a spy in order to expose what she suspects is a conspiracy to fraudulently exploit a cryptically worded will. In the process, she becomes romantically involved with a mysterious young man who has a generous heart, who is as brilliant as she is, and who has scholarly ambitions equal to hers. At the end, she must make a decision about her future, to follow love or to pursue freedom and the promise of life.
A desperate mother spirits away her infant son, seemingly drawn (chased, perhaps?) to the small English village of Thornyhill. She ends up on the doorstep of old Bartlemy, a curious man who has lived on the forested land for as long as anyone can remember-and who comes to believe that the child is destined for great things. . . . While growing up under Bartlemy's protective eye, Nathan Ward senses something else watching him, a shift of shadows in the surrounding Darkwood. Then pieces of his dreams begin to come to life. A man he saved from the ocean washes ashore on the television news. A greenish stone cup set with jewels that has haunted his visions sounds eerily like one lost by the Thorn family centuries ago-a cup that has recently made its way back into the hands of the village's last living ancestor. Yet when Nathan learns the chalice may have come from another world, a land with bloodstained moons and a toxic sun, he knows he is destined to play a part in something beyond his most vivid imagination. But why is the cup here, and what could it possibly want with a teenage boy and a sleepy town of villagers full of tall tales? With the help of his best friend, Hazel, Nathan must figure out why he's been chosen-and for what purpose. Even if it means traveling deeper each night into dreams, into lands, into legends that both terrify and mesmerize him.
