Summary:

For over a century, plant specialists worldwide have sought to transform healing plants in African countries into pharmaceuticals. And for equally as long, conflicts over these medicinal plants have endured, from stolen recipes and toxic tonics to unfulfilled promises of laboratory equipment and usurped personal patents. In Bitter Roots, Abena Dove Osseo-Asare draws on publicly available records and extensive interviews with scientists and healers in Ghana, Madagascar, and South Africa to interpret how African scientists and healers, rural communities, and drug companies—including Pfizer, Bristol-Myers Squibb, and Unilever—have sought since the 1880s to develop drugs from Africa’s medicinal plants. Osseo-Asare recalls the efforts to transform six plants into pharmaceuticals: rosy periwinkle, Asiatic pennywort, grains of paradise, Strophanthus, Cryptolepis, and Hoodia. Through the stories of each plant, she shows that herbal medicine and pharmaceutical chemistry have simultaneous and overlapping histories that cross geographic boundaries. At the same time, Osseo-Asare sheds new light on how various interests have tried to manage the rights to these healing plants and probes the challenges associated with assigning ownership to plants and their biochemical components. A fascinating examination of the history of medicine in colonial and postcolonial Africa, Bitter Roots will be indispensable for scholars of Africa; historians interested in medicine, biochemistry, and society; and policy makers concerned with drug access and patent rights.

But secrets cannot be kept forever Taunted and bullied as a child, Claudia suffered from low self-esteem until the new minister of her church, his wife, and their young daughter Olivia, moved in next door. At last, Claudia is no longer lonely. She and Olivia become fast friends. At the age of seventeen, Olivia is raped and Claudia blames herself for not being there to protect her. Praise for Marion McNair and Bitter Roots "Bitter Roots is an exciting novel. It reveals all too often, the lives of a myriad of people's public success, but private failure. This provocative work of art will capture your attention. You can't put it down!" -Dr. Paul A. Thomas, PhD, Greenville, North Carolina "Against a backdrop of Christianity, the author develops the characters uniquely, colorfully, and weaves them into an intricate pattern of traditional values laden with suspense, intrigue, and passion. A must read!" -Faye I. Mandell, L.C.S.W

Summary:

Bitter roots: the ends of a Kalahari myth is set in Nyae-Nyae, a region of Namibia located in southern Africa's Kalahari desert, traditional home of the Ju/'hoansi. It updates the ethnographic film record begun in the 1950s by John Marshall, whose films documented 50 years of change, and who together with Claire Ritchie, established a grass-roots development foundation, which Adrian Strong (the filmmaker) joined in the late 1980s. Shot in 2007, two years after Marshall's death (and including footage from his films), Bitter Roots documents the return of Strong and Ritchie to Nyae-Nyae where they observe the erosion of a community-led development process following the imposition of a new agenda led by the World Wildlife Fund, which prioritizes wildlife conservation and tourism over subsistence farming. Communities voice their dissatisfaction with the new conservancy, which has done little to help people farm and improve their lives. Through archival footage and discussions with community members, this film sensitively examines the problems (lions, elephants, conservationists) currently facing the Ju/'hoansi and challenges the myth that they are culturally unable to farm. The film investigates the perpetuation of this myth by showing how tourists and filmmakers still demand to see how people used to live rather than they way they live now, and how the Ju/'hoansi cope with such expectations, while steadfastly continuing to farm against all the odds. Filmmaker: Adrian Strong.

Summary:

"Eight years after the Taliban was ousted from government, an insurgency rages in Afghanistan, drug barons and war lords rule the turf, and the truth remains unspoken. In Bitter Roots, Tender Shoots: The Uncertain Fate of Afghanistan's Women, author Sally Armstrong confronts unspoken truths and unravels the threads that are strangling Afghanistan's attempts to join the twenty-first century. A veteran reporter, Armstrong interviews women and girls from all walks of life, focusing on the change-makers—the women activists, journalists, politicians, and lawyers who have taken on the dangerous task of altering the status quo and yanking Afghanistan out of its primitive past. Combining the personal stories of women with the analysis of experts and the grassroots efforts of Canadians, Bitter Roots, Tender Shoots is an accurate and impassioned portrayal of the contemporary lives of women and girls in Afghanistan."--book desc. 2009, amazon.ca.

Summary:

This Yarn is about a young cowboy drifting West in the mid 1870s. Finding himself looking at winter in the Bitterroot Valley he hired on at a ranch run by an old man and his son. While riding the high country searching for strays he stumbles onto a trail that looks like rustlers at work. The trail leads to Dillon and some mining towns in the mountains and eventually back at the ranch after some unexpected and dangerous detours. About the Author: I worked in the trades for over 40 years and wore out parts of my body that kept me from a daily work schedule. We got our first computer to assist me with some "Online" schooling. Being very ignorant about computers and my typing was rusty, having been fifty years out of high school, I started writing. Since I was a beginner I fumbled around with Microsoft "Works" and a dictionary. I read my work and edited and reread it time and again. A friend told me that after one hundred thousand words things would begin to fall in place. We upgraded computer programs, ditched the dictionary and after over ten years (mostly shelf life) I found an interested soul and wouldn't you know it, electronic "books". I hope you enjoy it..

Summary:

A riveting new novel from New York Times bestselling and Edgar Award-winning author C. J. Box. The ties that bind can burn you. Former sheriff’s investigator Cassie Dewell is trying to start her life over as in private practice. She’s her own boss and answers to no one, and that’s just the way she likes it after the past few tumultuous years. All that certainty changes when an old friend calls in a favor: she wants Cassie to help exonerate a man accused of assaulting a young woman from an influential family. Against her own better judgment, Cassie agrees. But out by the Bitterroot Mountains of Montana, twisted family loyalty runs as deep as the ties to the land, and there's always something more to the story. The Kleinsassers have ruled this part of Montana for decades, and the Iron Cross Ranch is their stronghold. They want to see Blake Kleinsasser, the black sheep of the family, put away forever for the assault. As Cassie attempts to uncover the truth, she must fight against a family whose roots are tangled and deadly—as well as the ghosts of her own past that threaten to bring her down. With The Bitterroots, master storyteller C. J. Box delivers another searing novel of loyalty, lies, and lethal retribution.
