The book will also help give an insight into what goes on behind the scenes for those visiting a game park for their very first time. It has been written in an easy to read format, divided into individual wildlife adventures based from the authors early beginnings as a Game Ranger at a remote outpost in Northern Zululand to finally becoming Warden of Game Capture. Some of these adventures are funny and some more serious but never routine or mundane however they were always rewarding and gratifying. Enjoy the read!

About Rosie Rosie was a real soul who lived on Rosemoore Lake from 2007 2012. She came from Michigan to our lake along with her friend and partner Moorey. Delivered in postal carriers and released into our lake, both swans brought a majestic and special sense of pride and love to the people who lived on or around the lake who helped to feed and support them. There were many others that would come from the outside of the neighborhood to take pictures of them. Rosie had a star like quality to her as she loved to be photographed and told how great she was. She endured the loss of Moorey, Bobby and all of her babies over a four year time period. It was sad to watch her look for all her loved ones. Her story is about the feelings associated with loss and the difficulty in adjusting to change, letting go and moving forward. To live in hearts we leave behind Is not to die (Thomas Campbell)
Alan Adaschiks dream was to visit Alaska; Americas last frontier and a place which abounds with wildlife and unspoiled wilderness. Upon retirement, Al and his wife Gayle sold everything and bought a thirty-seven foot Damon Intruder motor home to make his dream a reality. An Alaskan Adventure is a narrative about Al and Gayles trip which highlights the places they visited and the wonderful things they experienced along the way. An Alaskan Adventure commences in Indiana following a visit with Als relatives who live there. After negotiating the traffic jams of Chicago, Al and Gayle traveled I-94 across the northern Great Plains visiting Minnesota, North Dakota, and Montana along the way. Heading north, they visited Glacier National Park and continued on to tour Yoho, Banff, and Jasper national parks in Canada. Afterwards, Al & Gayle picked up the Alaskan Highway which took them to a realization of Als dream. The reminder of the book is about Al & Gayles travels around the Great Alaskan Triangle, a circuit of 900 miles defined by the cities of Tok, Fairbanks, and Anchorage. While negotiating this triangle, Al and Gayles primary goals were to find gold in one of the many streams they crossed and to also find a Wooly Mammoth frozen in a glacier. Toward this end, they took side trips to the White Mountains National Recreation Area, Denali National Park, The Top of the World Highway, and the towns of Homer and Chicken. An Alaskan Adventure is not just a book about touring Alaska. Al is an environmentalist and a theme evident throughout the book is that the beauty we find around us is fleeting and that if we, as a species, continue to over-populate our world, what we see and value so highly is sure to go away.

It started with the yellow jacket wasp I found in the street. Even though it was dead, it had such an animated quality, almost cartoon-like. I carefully cradled it in my hand and was immediately inspired to paint it. Soon cicada were emerging, leaving their scarab-like shell behind. Dragonflies were hovering about my head. My insect treasures mounted; firefly, butterfly, beetle, ladybug and more, arousing my inner scientist. The local library and bookstore provided my trove of compelling facts and educational information. A journal of bugs and insects took shape. What followed was a selection of bugs from a to z. I wanted to hold a special book in my hand recognizing the beauty of nature. So I created my own, Abecedarian Insectarium, Bugs and Insects A to Z.
