"Turn Right at the Dancing Cow: A Miracle in Uganda" with John Shimer
She was 49 years old when I met her. She was poor, had no wealthy friends, had never lived in Africa, had never run a school, let alone found one and create it from scratch. She knew nothing about fundraising, or non-profit organization and management. But she had the faith of a grain of mustard seed. Over the next four years, she raised money, went back to Africa, cleared jungle, built buildings and she pulled off a miracle.

Dick Bolles, "the most recognized job-hunting authority on the planet*"
So, a funny thing happened to me, on the way to church. While just trying to help some campus ministers who were hanging on the ropes, I accidentally wrote a best-selling book.I didn't write it to be that.I didn't write it to make money, I only wrote it to be helpful. I didn't know that with its annual revisions (which I required) and with teaching from it all around the world, it would take over my whole life, [since] 1970.

John Robbins on "The New Good Life - Living Better Than Ever In an Age of Less"
One of the reasons I wrote my latest book is to provide people with simple, easy and inexpensive suggestions on how to raise their quality of life while lowering their cost of living, and at the same time lowering their ecological footprint. Learning to live with respect for ourselves and the whole earth community is no easy task in a culture that has become as out of balance as ours has.

Bonnie Buol, Mountain Hiking Senior
I treated many people in their 60s who had suffered devastating strokes and would have residual mobility and personal care issues the rest of their lives.They told me about their dreams of traveling AFTER THEY RETIRED.Now they had the time and the money to travel but limited physical ability to enjoy their dream vacations.I feel blessed to have the physical ability and opportunities to continue realizing my dreams.
