    Yellowstone was discovered by John Colter in the early 1800s but for over fifty years, most Americans did not believe the reports of steaming hot springs and bubbling mudpots?
    Yellowstone is one of the worlds biggest active volcanoes? The hot underground magma is what causes the geysers to erupt and when you visit Yellowstone you actually go inside the volcanic caldera.
    Both black bears and grizzly bears can be found in Yellowstone and they are omnivorous which means they eat both plants and animals?
    Old Faithful erupts about every ninety minutes to heights of over one hundred feet?
    Early visitors to Yellowstone used to catch fish in Yellowstone Lake then dip them into Fishing Cone Geyser to cook them?
"Yellowstone National Park for Kids, Preteens, and Teenagers" includes easy-to-read descriptions, photographs, and diagrams of the park's wildlife, history, and geology and it highlights some of the best hikes and attractions for children visiting Yellowstone.

Toward A Catholic Theology Of Nationality

RRP $243.99

"Llyvvelyn has essayed a daunting task: to build, where there has been none before, a coherent Catholic theology of the nation and nationality. His book is learned, nuanced, and quite original. He dialogues, closely, with the social sciences and history on the reality of a nation. He draws on post–Vatican II documents and a new focus on the church and culture and links them, very originally, to the doctrines of the Incarnation, the theology of the relation of nature to grace, and the Trinity. In the end, Llywelyn both validates an authentic sense of nation and avoids any idolatrous substitution of nation for religion. An important book not only for theologians but for those concerned with the ethics of nationhood."—Pohn A. Coleman, S.J., Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles

"Every now and then a book comes out and fills a huge gap of knowledge, and Toward a Catholic Theology of Nationality is certainly one of these. 'Nationality' is a concept as slippery as a jellyfish, as Llywelyn points out, and to pin it down and relate it to the whole gamut of Christian doctrines—from Christology to ecclesiology to Mariology—is a veritable intellectual tour de force. With rare theological depth, Llywelyn convincingly shows that the question of nationality is not simply a matter of ethics and politics but must be deeply rooted in Catholic beliefs about God and redemption. Insightful, challenging, and wide-ranging, this book is a must-read in any course on Catholic social teaching and on politics."—Peter C. Phan, Georgetown University

How are the religious and national aspects of human identity connected? Is there really such a thing as a Christian nation? Is Catholicism compatible with patriotism? Many nations have made use of Christianity to understand themselves and to justify their political ambitions, though Catholic theology has never elaborated on a systematic treatment of nationality. Dorian Llywelyn, S.J., introduces the reader to contemporary Catholic approaches to nationality and patriotism, offering an original Catholic theology of national belonging. He proposes that cultural and national diversity, as well as a sense of global community, are mutually necessary.

Ordinarily Detective Lane has a knack for discovering the whereabouts of missing persons. But the city's latest victim has disappeared without a trace. After brutally attacking his young nephew, ex-mayor Bob Swatsky has gone missing along with 13 million dollars of tax-payers' money. Is he on the lam with the cash, or is it something far more sinister? A zany cast of characters, a love doll, and a chain smoking grandma with an oxygen tank, lead Detective Lane on an exhilarating romp through the streets of Calgary. A man hunt is on, and alone, Lane must uncover the truth before someone ends up visiting Queen's Park...permanently. The first book in the Detective Lane mystery series is an intriguing look at the prejudices gay cops face on the police force, and at the dangers of keeping secrets.
