              Cowboy is a Verb: Notes from a Modern-day Rancher (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              From the big picture to the smallest detail, Richard Collins fashions a rousing memoir about the modern-day lives of cowboys and ranchers. However, Cowboy is a Verb is much more than wild horse rides and cattle chases. While Collins recounts stories of quirky ranch horses, cranky... cow critters, cow dogs, and the people who use and care for them, he also paints a rural West struggling to survive the onslaught of relentless suburbanization. A born story-teller with a flair for words, Collins breathes life into the geology, history, and interdependency of land, water, and native and introduced plants and animals. He conjures indelible portraits of the hardworking, dedicated people he comes to know. With both humor and humility, he recounts the day-to-day challenges of ranch life from how to build a productive herd, distribute your cattle evenly across a rough and rocky landscape, and how to establish a grazing system that allows pastures enough time to recover. He also intimately recounts a battle over the endangered Gila Topminnow and how he and his neighbors worked with university range scientists, forest service conservationists, and funding agencies to improve their ranches as well as the ecological health of the Redrock Canyon watershed. A rancher who wants to stay in the game doesn't dominate the landscape; instead, they have to continually study the land and the animals it supports. Collins is a keen observer of both. He demonstrates that patience, resilience, and a common sense approach to conservation and range management are what counts, combined with an enduring affection for nature, its animals, and the land. Cowboy is a Verb is not a romanticized story of cowboy life on the range, rather it is a complex story of the complicated work involved with being a rancher in the twenty-first-century West.

              Pathways of Learning: Teaching Students and Parents About Multiple Intelligences

              Pathways of Learning: Teaching Students and Parents About Multiple Intelligences (Paperback)

              By Lazear, David G.

              Multiple intelligence theory holds that intelligence is not a single, static quality that can be reflected in an IQ score; rather, there are at least eight ways of knowing or being smart. This book helps educators fully understand how multiple intelligence theory can improve thei...r educational practice and how to share the benefits with students and parents. A series of 20 activities leads teachers through the process of helping students become more aware of their own multiple intelligences and how they can be applied at school and at home. These exercises, presented as copy-ready handouts, will assist students in determining their intelligence strengths and developing their weaker intelligences. In addition to the 20 base exercises, extension activities on each topic are provided.

              In this dynamic collection of essays, Arnold Krupat, one of the leading critics of American Indian writing, storytelling, and film, offers insightful and provocative analyses of representations by and about Native peoples, past and present. He considers the relations between tric...ksters in traditional and contemporary stories, the ways in which Native peoples were depicted in mainstream American literature in the mid-nineteenth century, and how modern Cherokee authors look back upon and represent the forced removal of their ancestors from the Southeast in the 1830s. He also examines the writings of the famed Pequot public intellectual William Apess (1798 - 1839) and the complex communicative strategies informing the contemporary prize-winning Inuit film Atanarjuat, the Fast Runner. All That Remains not only showcases one of the most influential scholars in the field but also establishes a bold agenda for Native literary criticism in the twenty-first century.
