Struggling documentary producer Michael Burns has traveled to the remote Maya Mountains of Belize to capture exclusive footage of the last surviving curandero. The traditional Mayan healer may hold the key to discovering new medicines among the vast, uncharted flora of the rain forest. But with a violent civil war spilling across the border from neighboring Guatemala, and Burns inexplicably drawn to the aging curandero's American apprentice, the filmmakers stumble into a more explosive story than they ever could have imagined. At once an adventure and an exploration into the nature of perception, The Five Lost Days exposes the clash between modern culture and ancient beliefs.

THE DAYS OF OFELIA, which was first published in 1942, is a book about Mexico that cuts through the surface and shows you the living people. ‘Vivid,’ ‘delightful,’ ‘completely real’ are worn-out phrases, but there are no others that do justice to this truly extraordinary narrative. Ofelia Escoto was a little girl that the author, Gertrude Diamant, met when she went apartment-hunting in the City of Mexico, and who became her maid. Ofelia’s father was a nightwatchman with a family of thirteen to support; and for many months the author shared the life of the Escotos, sympathized with them in their misfortunes, and watched the love story of Ofelia’s brother Daniel, with its tragic denouement. But the book is more than the story of the Escotos. It tells also of visits to the parched, poverty-stricken country of the Otomi Indians, where the author went to conduct ‘lost intelligence tests,’ of the picturesque dances and rituals of a wedding in tropical Tehuantepec, of the hazards of traveling in a Mexican bus along the Laredo highway, of the wisdom displayed by Mexican judges in handling the homeless children of the Revolution, and of the vagaries of Mexican officials who tried to deport the author on the ground that she was a Polish refugee. “It is amazingly well written; it has humor, it has charm, and it conveys the flavour of Mexican life with extraordinary accuracy. To me, it seems much the best book on life in Mexico which has appeared since Flandrau’s classic ‘Viva Mexico,’ both in the quality of the writing and in the accuracy with which it catches the Mexican scene. It is far superior to the innumerable books on Mexico that have appeared during the past decade.”—H. B. Parkes, author of History of Mexico

Este livro trata-se de uma compilação com as melhores poesias em inglês que já produzi. São cerca de cem textos com reflexões profundas sobre a vida e como o ser humano lida com seus problemas. Não é um livro de auto-ajuda, é uma obra voltada para reflexão com pinceladas das memórias do próprio autor que investiu uma década da sua vida produzindo este material. As inspirações são vindas de autores clássicos como Edgar Allan Poe, passando por Dostoiévski e chegando ao contemporâneo Neil Gaiman. The wind whispered cold words And I was trembling thinking of the worst I saw a spirit walking by Murmuring in his bed of lies No matter what path I would take In the end I'd be in the lost lake The breeze made me scars so deep And the lake was now a black sea The reflecting moon seems a gate To the hottest circle of hell Where lies only the damned and the wasted Falling forever in the never ending well The darkness blinded my eyes And left it to loneliness Alone I heard her weak voice while she dies A sweet voice of tenderness There she goes in the lake My hand was not the one she should take Now the noise is gone And the body seems peaceful and calm Maybe my mind is filled with thorns When I read the last psalm I love her, but it has gone to waste Now she belongs to the lake ( The Lost Lake)

The economic and social problems of modern Scotland are at the centre of current debate about regional economic growth, social improvement and environmental rehabilitation. In this book, as relevant today as when it was first published in 1975, Anthony Slaven argues that the extent and causes of these problems are frequently underestimated, thus making development policies less than fully effective. The major economic and social weaknesses of the west of Scotland are shown to be rooted in the regions former strengths. The author demonstrates how, although the region and its people have resisted change, a thriving and self reliant nineteenth-century economy , based on local resources and manpower, has given way in the present century to vanishing skills and products, unemployment and social deprivation. Since 1945 economic and social planning has helped to improve the situation, although many difficulties remain. Seen in the historical perspective provided by this revealing study, the present industrial problems of the west of Scotland, and their remedies, become clearer. Mr Slaven argues that the older industries deserve more help, for without this, he believes, the ineffectiveness of development policies is likely to be perpetuated. This book was first published in 1975.
