Could Mars be a potential source of precious, life-sustaining minerals? Will the Red Planet support colonization should Earth need to be abandoned? Previous unmanned missions revealed no evidence of life forms, yet Jeremy―a professing Christian―is unconvinced.
PAPERBACK – There are many books that provide very technical details concerning honey bees. Often we want just the facts in simple and easy terms.

It is simple for the student who is wanting to learn about honeybees or do a report for school, yet technical enough for those who want or need a little more information.

Fort Clark and Its Indian Neighbors
A thriving fur trade post between 1830 and 1860, Fort Clark, in what is today western North Dakota, also served as a way station for artists, scientists, missionaries, soldiers, and other western chroniclers traveling along the Upper Missouri River. The written and visual legacies of these visitors – among them the German prince-explorer Maximilian of Wied, Swiss artist Karl Bodmer, and American painter-author George Catlin – have long been the primary sources of information on the cultures of the Mandan and Hidatsa Indians, the peoples who met the first fur traders in the area. This book, by a team of anthropologists, is the first thorough account of the fur trade at Fort Clark to integrate new archaeological evidence with the historical record.
