Describes life in the early days of Egypt
Artists of American folk music : the legends of traditional folk, the stars of the sixties, the virtuosi of new acoustic music by Phil Hood( Book )

7 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Except for original pieces about Bob Dylan and Peter, Paul and Mary, the articles compiled here about folk, bluegrass and new acoustic musicians first appeared in Guitar Player and Frets magazines. Most pieces have been updated; they profile the artists' backgrounds, careers and contributions to their musical forms. (The articles on Odetta, Pete Seeger, Bill Monroe and Richie Havens include interviews with the musicians.) Subjects represent different eras of modern folk music: from the early days (Woody Guthrie and Malvina Reynolds) to the height of popularity 25 years ago (the Kingston Trio, Joan Baez and Arlo Guthrie) to new acoustic artists (David Grisman and Tony Trischka). Also of note: an article about the Lomax family, the archivists who have made extensive recordings of folk music that might otherwise have been lost. Although this book gives the novice a general background, it adds little new information."--Publishers Weekly
How to keep dinosaurs by Robert Mash( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It's funny, it's fun-an irrestible "spoof"! Congratulations! You're bringing home your very first pet dinosaur. But there's so much to think about and to prepare. Which dino gets on well with children or adapts best to life in a city apartment? What kind of food does it eat (and how can you avoid being its meal)? What bed would make it feel completely comfy? And what about a working dinosaur--one to watch over the home or do tricks for an audience? With tongue planted firmly in cheek, this "dino owner's manual" amusingly explains what every human must know before adopting a new saurus. Find out what should go into the basic toolkit (a stout shovel is helpful and so are reinforced gauntlets); which species thrive in household life and which will cause BIG problems; and what dinosaurs are just right for circuses and zoos, in security, and for giving eggs and meat. For every dinosaur covered, there's information on feeding, breeding, housing, and availability; maps of where they lived; details on weight and size; as well as other pertinent facts. This creative, fun, and unique approach to dinosaurs will stir kids' imaginations and teach them, too. The illustrations cleverly mix photography and art to bring humans and dinos together for the first time, and show the animals in domestic situations. A Compsognathus in a litter box and a Microvenator peeking hungrily into a refrigerator are particular comic highlights. This is surely the most amusing way to learn about dinosaurs ever
