This study guide is the academic companion to Brian Connolly's "Wolf Journal." Set in the Allegheny Mountains of northern Pennsylvania, farm boy Jimmy Warren finds wolf tracks in the snow - even though no wolves have been in these woods for a hundred years. The tracks lead him deeper into his passion for nature guided by Hawk, an old Susquehannock storyteller. Along the way, Jimmy falls in love with the beautiful Sherry Woolman who shares his love of the wild. As a school project, Jimmy keeps a journal on wolves. In order to protect the wolf he discovered, Jimmy writes about him as if he is fiction. The Tanner brothers, a derelict pair of would-be bounty hunters, threaten to destroy the perfect balance of nature that Jimmy has found. "Wolf Journal" is a journey into the natural world where intricate details, like the imprint of a wing in snow, tell a larger story - one of endangered species, an endangered planet, and the human spirit that strives to understand and protect.

There has never been a greater moment in time where the church must take a good, hard look at itself and see that we say so much and live so little. We claim that we believe that God loves us, and yet we fall apart when someone doesn�t return a phone call. We claim we believe that people will one day spend an eternity separated from God, and yet we do not weep for the lost. We claim we believe that the Bible is the word of God and yet spend so little time reading it. We claim we are alive and yet our garments reek of death. We�ve become more fascinated with what we think we know rather than what we live. We�ve been educated past our level of obedience. AWAKENED is an alarm that�s been set to awaken the church out of its slumber. It will challenge the reader to seek God in a greater way until they burn with the fire of what it is they say they believe and will once again cause each person to fall in love with the simplicity and beauty of the gospel message. It�s time to see. It�s time to believe.

Remarkably, grassroots-based community planning flourishes in New York City -- the self-proclaimed "real estate capital of the world" -- with at least seventy community plans for different neighborhoods throughout the city. Most of these were developed during fierce struggles against gentrification, displacement, and environmental hazards, and most got little or no support from government. In fact, community-based plans in New York far outnumber the land use plans produced by government agencies. In New York for Sale, Tom Angotti tells some of the stories of community planning in New York City: how activists moved beyond simple protests and began to formulate community plans to protect neighborhoods against urban renewal, real estate mega-projects, gentrification, and environmental hazards. Angotti, both observer of and longtime participant in New York community planning, focuses on the close relationships among community planning, political strategy, and control over land. After describing the political economy of New York City real estate, its close ties to global financial capital, and the roots of community planning in social movements and community organizing, Angotti turns to specifics. He tells of two pioneering plans forged in reaction to urban renewal plans (including the first community plan in the city, the 1961 Cooper Square Alternate Plan -- a response to a Robert Moses urban renewal scheme); struggles for environmental justice, including battles over incinerators, sludge, and garbage; plans officially adopted by the city; and plans dominated by powerful real estate interests. Finally, Angotti proposes strategies for progressive, inclusive community planning not only for New York City but for anywhere that neighborhoods want to protect themselves and their land. New York for Sale teaches the empowering lesson that community plans can challenge market-driven development even in global cities with powerful real estate industries
