Challenging traditional histories of abolition, this book shifts the focus away from the East to show how the women of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin helped build a vibrant antislavery movement in the Old Northwest. Stacey Robertson argues that the environment of the Old Northwest--with its own complicated history of slavery and racism--created a uniquely collaborative and flexible approach to abolitionism. Western women helped build this local focus through their unusual and occasionally transgressive activities. They plunged into Liberty Party politics, vociferously supported a Quaker-led boycott of slave goods, and tirelessly aided fugitives and free blacks in their communities. Western women worked closely with male abolitionists, belying the notion of separate spheres that characterized abolitionism in the East. The contested history of race relations in the West also affected the development of abolitionism in the region, necessitating a pragmatic bent in their activities. Female antislavery societies focused on eliminating racist laws, aiding fugitive slaves, and building and sustaining schools for blacks. This approach required that abolitionists of all stripes work together, and women proved especially adept at such cooperation.

A fascinating synthesis of ancient wisdom, modern medicine, scientific research, and personal experience that proves that the human heart, not the brain, holds the secrets that link body, mind, and spirit. You know that the heart loves and feels, but did you know that the heart also thinks, remembers, communicates with other hearts, helps regulate immunity, and contains stored information that continually pulses through your body? InThe Heart's Code,Dr. Paul Pearsall explains the theory and science behind energy cardiology, the newly emerging field that is uncovering one of the most significant medical, social, and spiritual discoveries of our time. The heart is not just a pump; it conducts the cellular symphony that is the very essence of our being. Ten years ago, Pearsall, who was then running a clinical and research center at a major hospital, knew he had cancer long before his doctors confirmed his self-diagnosis. His heart was crying out that something was seriously wrong, but his doctors and colleagues dismissed his misgivings and said he was overstressed. Months later, Pearsall was diagnosed with Stage IV lymphoma with a small chance of survival. But he did survive, and his experience led him to enter research and make discoveries that are nothing short of revolutionary. Pearsall, the author of theNew York TimesbestsellersSuperimmunityandThe Pleasure Prescription,explains how we live in a society that is run by our brains, not our hearts, and why this is damaging to us on a personal and sociological level. Pearsall shows that by listening to the subtle energy and wisdom each of us has within our hearts, we can learn valuable lessons for loving, working, playing, praying, and healing. Full of amazing stories of transplant recipients who experienced profound changes in their lifestyles and cancer patients who recognized their illness before diagnosis, as well as data from scientists and sources on cellular memory and the power of subtle energy, Pearsall explores what these breakthroughs mean for the rest of us. By unlocking the heart's code we can discover new ways of understanding human healing and consciousness, even as we create a new model for living that leads to better health, happiness, and self-knowledge.
LOVE'S REVENGE It was seven years since Travis Braggette had abandoned Suzanne Forteaux at the altar. Now the sight of him on the dusty street of Virginia City, Nevada, stole Suzanne's breath away.

No one suspected she was actually a Confederate spy...and innocent of a man's intimate touch. Seeing Suzanne sashay into his Mountain Queen saloon filled Travis with tantalizing memories of what might have been. But he wasn't the marrying kind...although that didn't stop him from desiring her now. Little did Travis know that Suzanne's secret would soon sweep them both into a dangerous world of unbounded passion where hearts could be broken ... yet where there was no turning back from love!
