This book brilliantly explains the scientific principles of positive reinforcement training in every day language. --Erich Klinghammer, PhD Director of Wolf Park. If you are looking for a step-by-step guide to help explain the use of positive reinforcement in training and living with your canine friend, then this is the book for you. Trainer and educator Beth Duman takes you by the hand and guides you through the entire process from the very start. (Trainers - This might be a good book to have your students take home for homework.) Beth humbly uses her experiences with her own rescue dog, Charlie Darwin (hence the title), to illustrate the successes and pitfalls of training and learning to live happily together. Brilliant and well written! Most dog training books are so dry, and one struggles to go from lesson to lesson. Ms. Duman has written a book that is full of humor and pathos, as he takes you through the step by step training process with a little rescue dog who evolved into Charles Darwin. Along the way, she shares stories about her own dogs, and other dogs, who have benefited from these positive training methods. This book holds your interest, page by page, and makes you eager to hep your own dog become the best that he or she can be, which foremost, is your best friend.---Therri O'Dea.

Don't put the dog before the cart...until he is trained! Many people love the idea of being able to hitch their dogs to a cart and have them pull the kids around the yard or in a parade. Or they have a breed of dog that has been bred to work as a draft dog and are interested in participating in competitions held by clubs around the country that test both dog and handler's skill pulling a cart. While this may seem simple, training a dog to willingly and safely do the work to pull a cart actually involves a lot of learning and effort on the part of both the dog and the handler. In this new book, author Laura Waldbaum will teach you what you and your dog need to know to help develop a "happy draft dog."

Charles Darwin published The Origin of Species, his revolutionary tract on evolution and the fundamental ideas involved, in 1859. Nearly 150 years later, the theory of evolution continues to create tension between the scientific and religious communities. Challenges about teaching the theory of evolution in schools occur annually all over the country. This same debate raged within Darwin himself, and played an important part in his marriage: his wife, Emma, was quite religious, and her faith gave Charles a lot to think about as he worked on a theory that continues to spark intense debates. Deborah Heiligman's new biography of Charles Darwin is a thought-provoking account of the man behind evolutionary theory: how his personal life affected his work and vice versa. The end result is an engaging exploration of history, science, and religion for young readers. Charles and Emma is a 2009 National Book Award Finalist for Young People's Literature.

A "fresh...thrilling" (The Guardian) account of the Graeco-Persian Wars. In the fifth century B.C., a global superpower was determined to bring truth and order to what it regarded as two terrorist states. The superpower was Persia, incomparably rich in ambition, gold, and men. The terrorist states were Athens and Sparta, eccentric cities in a poor and mountainous backwater: Greece. The story of how their citizens took on the Great King of Persia, and thereby saved not only themselves but Western civilization as well, is as heart-stopping and fateful as any episode in history. Tom Holland’s brilliant study of these critical Persian Wars skillfully examines a conflict of critical importance to both ancient and modern history.
