Three of hearts : a post-modern family( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For 13 years Sam, Steven, and the smart, fun-loving, level-headed East Indian beauty Samantha Singh lived together as men and wife. They slept together, ran a business together, and produced two children--one by the tall, reserved Steven, one by the irrepressible jester Sam. Their relationship is "triogamous," because as they define it, they have a three-way marriage. Filmed over nine years, the film includes interviews with relatives and friends adjusting to the unique arrangement and captures the feelings of the threesome as it evolves. But as years pass and children are born, giddy jokes about indeterminate paternity grow sardonic; business gets stressful; latent issues require therapy. Beyond the buzz of iconoclasm, the filmmakers find these 'lifestyle explorers' in a regular troubled marriage, only with three sides to every problem

North by degree : new perspectives on Arctic exploration( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

North by Degree: New Perspectives on Arctic Exploration is a stimulating volume of papers on the history of late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Arctic exploration. The contributors have contextualized expeditions, examining the social, cultural, technological, and environmental settings in which endeavors were conceived and carried out, and how they were described and understood by the public. A conference honoring Robert E. Peary's historic 1908-09 North Pole Expedition and recognizing the third International Polar Year (2007-09) brought together researches from a variety of disciplines whose work touches on different facets of Arctic exploration. Susan A. Kaplan (The Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum at Bowdoin College) and Robert McCracken Peck (Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia) invited the Philadelphia Area Center for the History of Science (PACHS) and the American Philosophical Society (APS) to partner with them. "North by Degree: An International Conference on Arctic Exploration" was a result of the collaboration and took place in Philadelphia in May 2008. The papers in this volume are a subset of those presented at the conference and are authored by scholars from many disciplines, including English, art history, anthropology, archaeology, history, ethnohistory, and Native American studies. The papers cast light on aspects of exploration not examined in most biographies of explorers, official expedition narratives, or overviews of the history of Arctic exploration. Susan A. Kaplan is Professor of Anthropology and Director of The Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum and Arctic Studies Center at Bowdoin College. Robert McCracken Peck is Curator of Art and Artifacts at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University in Philadelphia

How Peary reached the Pole : the personal story of his assistant by Donald Baxter MacMillan( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1934 Donald B. MacMillan, an accomplished explorer, wrote about his early career as a member of Robert E. Peary's 1908-09 North Pole Expedition. Now available for the first time since its original publication, this expanded edition of How Peary Reached the Pole features a biography of MacMillan and thirty-six images from his hand-tinted lantern slides. MacMillan used the journal he kept during the expedition to provide an intimate view of day-to-day activities and relationships with other members of the party, detailing how he learned to drive dog teams, camp in sub-zero temperatures, and travel safely across the ice-covered Polar Sea. MacMillan's experiences and deep admiration for Peary's methods, leadership, and many accomplishments make for fascinating reading. How Peary Reached the Pole allows us to see Arctic landscapes and Inughuit culture as MacMillan experienced them, providing a perspective from which to consider the northern environmental and cultural issues that continue to concern individuals and nations today, one hundred years after Peary's historic expedition."--Pub. desc
