Living on the Edge is risky advice for living an adventurous life. I begin with a brief sketch about my life and the influences that took me in the direction it did. I discuss communication models and paradigms that have helped me live in cross-cultural risky environments. I learned to validate people without endorsing values that are counter to my own. I’ve learned how to create a space to put things I haven’t understood or about which I didn’t yet have enough information to make an informed decision. I’ve learned that it’s not a bad thing to be a “child of the light” in times of darkness. These and more comprise advice, some of it risky, I’d like to give my millennial friends. I suggest that God is the great Recycler and that he doesn’t make junk, and there’s more.

Tourism has an essential role in terms of contributing to the financial sustainability of protected areas. In addition, through effective and efficient benefit-sharing, tourism can positively impact numerous stakeholders within and beyond the protected area. Living on the Edge: Benefit-Sharing from Protected Area Tourism highlights the complexity of benefit-sharing, the importance of identifying all relevant stakeholders, the challenges of ensuring equity and sustainability, and the critical importance of good governance. The evolution of benefit-sharing mechanisms over time also emphasizes a continuing need to evolve and adapt to each unique situation as much evidence indicates that little has changed for those living on the edge. Although this book focuses on benefit-sharing from protected area tourism, it is essential to acknowledge that along with these benefits are costs associated with tourism, including possible increased local prices, loss of access to land, human–wildlife conflict, and other related costs. The contributing authors agree that benefit-sharing must include good governance, accountability, equity, transparency, a broad reach of stakeholder engagement, and a robust combination of tangible and intangible benefits – with recognition that benefit-sharing systems need to be adaptive and evolve, as needed, according to the relevant situation. The chapters in this book were originally published as a special issue of the Journal of Sustainable Tourism.

"Living on the Edge initially gives the reader the impression that it is intended for today's youth. However as one continues to read through the life experiences of the author's friends, family and her own experiences, this is clearly a book for all ages. This book is an inspirational lesson on never giving up, but trusting in God and learning from the lessons of others throughout history. This is an easy to read and it compels us to find our inner strength in order to live the successful life God intents for us." .L. D. Maynard Very few people dare to write the truth about themselves, fearing man's judgement; but truth is the only thing that can deliver us and strengthen the brethren.

Living On The Edge is a must read for all who are interested in the perils of a remote Amazon people, their ancient mysterious traditions and struggles against deforestation. Revealed is their intimate and exotic lives and their battle against the white men’s greed for their land for cattle ranching. Ill–prepared to fight, the village tribal chief relies on the shaman’s supernatural magical powers. A clever scheme to save the village is planned by the chief’s youngest son. Becoming friends with the enemy’s crippled son, he discovers their plans but risks his life when entering the white men’s world of evil politics and corruption, including Brazil’s president, and kidnapping of the governor’s family. Outraged by her husband’s refusal to see the danger, Tatoa leaves the chief and warns her people of future perils. She also warns her husband of terrible consequences if their son is forbidden to marry his beloved. But the chief, refusing to listen, is faced with a family tragedy. With his mask–making skilled and supportive grandfather, Iasin unwillingly awaits his initiation and scarification ritual, and worries he will shame his family with his outburst from the pain he must endure to prove his manhood.

--A fresh new look at adventure, survival and faith-- from a recipient of the Explorers Club Award. Adventure is in his blood. He has the explorer’s curiosity, the will to survive, and the faith to persevere. An engaging writing style, with at times, humorous observations, animates his adventures in remote landscapes in Canada. Through David Friesen’s archaeological and teaching projects, he discovered the wonders of the people, wildlife and landscapes of the far northern wilderness and, at the same time, the inner spirit that drives him. Vivid descriptions of strange (to him) cuisine (such as bear meat and miserak) and innovative recipes (lichen shrimp soup) season many stories. David’s boundless curiosity, evolving relationships with First Nations leaders, and personal stamina led him to persist in the building of a pithouse in northern British Columbia to replicate the dwellings of early Ulkatcho Carrier people. Living in the pithouse over several winters, he keenly observed the wildlife and scenery around him, and survived by living off the land. His solitary existence drew inspiration from the landscape, spiritual songs, scripture passages and his own poetic expressions. In the Arctic, he encountered a rugged lifestyle as he taught map and compass skills to Inuit youth, learning traditional navigational skills along the way. A perilous kayaking trip along the British Columbia north coast punctuated a three month trip, facing a fierce storm and many other challenges.

Bohemians don’t care what the neighbors think. They live free and fearlessly, pursuing their ideals and artistic inclinations. This NEW EDITION of Bohemian Manifesto is an exciting glimpse into the world of counterculture living, full-color dreaming and poetic revelations. Authors Laren Stover and Paul Himmelein deliver wit, whimsy, and insider wisdom as they build upon the five types of Bohemians—Folkloric , Beat, Dandy, Nouveau and Zen—exploring two additional Bohemian subsets: the earth-loving Fairy Folk with their mystical glamour, and the dapper denizens of the shadows, otherwise known as Dandy Goths, charmingly detailing their peculiar eccentricities and styles. The authors also expand on the elevated ethos, ecologically driven aesthetic and herbivore habits of the Zen Bohemian, the modern world’s most likely saviors. With new illustrations by the acclaimed international artist Izak, Bohemian Manifesto dares you to open to any page and let its shimmering descriptions tempt you to live a more authentic life.
