This book proposes answers to the question of why parks are failing their mandate to be preserved undiminished for future generations. Those answers are deeply embedded in one word: belief. The book provides a practical guide for preparing park managers for a new era where the beliefs that created parks are matched by the beliefs that steward them - an era where promises made to unborn generations are matters of honor, not to be dismissed by the limits of science, the reality of budgets, or the inconvenience of revising management models. The book offers a new way to view parks, as essential public services and as social assets rather than natural resources. The book has 19 chapters and a subject index.

Signs, and especially symbols, are representations often of the abstract rather than the literal, which allows for a much broader interpretation of their meaning. A look at any dictionary will tell you what they are, but here we ask why and how they came to exist. Here we look for reasons why so many of us are visually illiterate, and why we no longer understand the symbolism which communicated stories and information to our forebears. We also see how symbols have changed with time, and how they have been manipulated to make them encapsulate new meanings.

Wicca is a religion of clergy. Many Wiccans choose to serve at the altar as priest or priestess because they are seeking spiritual expression through ritual. As clergy we interact directly with the elements, the God, and the Goddess. Included in this comprehensive guide are weekly lessons and exercises that extend the reader's experience beyond simply reading about Wicca, and actually performing spells and rituals. S. Brook Putnam's friendly, practical style demystifies the occult and brings Wicca into a real life perspective.
