This is the story about a journey around Shikoku Island, Japan, in a vehicle called a Bongo Multiwagon following a famous Buddhist pilgrim's path. Our leader was Wild Master, a Japanese priest who I had met on an earlier trip, and he brought with him his friend who owned a wine ship. My contribution to the pilgrimage was a collection of not always saintly Australians who prayed in the day and played in the night.
A delightful story about a blue - tongued lizard that dreams of visiting Antarctica to see the penguins.

Approaching Perfection 1 - The Art of Classical Horsemanship by Senor Ramon Guerrero.
This is the first book in a series of books by Senor Ramon Guerrero, which will assist all riders who wish to train their horse gynmastically.
Ramon Guerrero was born in Adalusia in Southern Spain, and carried out his apprenticeship at the Royal School of Equestrian Art of Jerez de la Frontera under the tutelage of Don Alvaro Domecq who was the president and founder of the school. The school followed the same direction as the classic Spanish Riding School.
Ramon has designed and choreographed gymnastic exercise systems applicable to any equestrian discipline. These are simple exercises to enhance the mental and physical capability of the horse and release it from stress.
His exercise systems have been used successfully in the areas of dressage, endurance, show jumping and show horses, with a variety of breeds!
A time to grow is a second edition of a 1986 book by Ron Edwards called Going Tropical.
The original book was one Ron was never happy with, and after requests for copies of Going Tropical by members of the public, we decided to try to make this version a little closer to Ron's original concept. Unfortunately the original manuscript could not be found, so we have had to wing it a bit.
