Giraffe Book Excerpt:

Their extraordinary long necks, distinctive camouflage, graceful movements, and friendly nature have made giraffes one of the most fascinating and beloved animals on the planet. But while giraffes once roamed the Great Plains of Africa in huge herds, their numbers have greatly diminished, and they are now entirely dependent on humanity for their survival. In Giraffe, Edgar Williams explores not only the biology of the tallest animals on earth, but also their impact on human history—including in ancient Egypt, where giraffes were kept as exotic pets; the Middle Ages, when giraffes were considered mythical beasts as improbable and mysterious as the dragon; and the Victorian era, in which giraffe hunting was considered an exhilarating sport. Giraffe is the first book to provide a comprehensive, twenty-first-century view of the giraffe in art, literature, film, and popular culture, as well as its natural history from prehistory to modern times. With new insights into the giraffe’s genetics and evolution, this book will appeal to those interested in the giraffe’s unique biology and to anyone who admires the majestic giraffe.

Inspiration and ideas for exhausted moms who want to reconnect with themselves—and create more time, peace, and joy in their lives. After spending a long time in the other-focused world of raising young children, women may find themselves struggling to remember how to take care of themselves. They may even feel guilty for wanting to do so, or wonder if it’s even possible. At a time when mothers are busier, more stressed, and less healthy than ever, this book offers realistic answers you can implement into your frenetic life. You’ll learn how to fix the disconnect between what’s truly important to you and what you spend your time, resources, and energy on. Stretch marks serve as emotional, visual, and psychological metaphors representing your ability to grow and push past your limits—and here, Amber Trueblood addresses the challenges mothers face in a funny, entertaining, supportive, and judgment-free environment. Using her A.M.B.E.R. Mindsets, you can learn the tricks and tools necessary to stop living the life you’re told you should be living—and start living freely.
