Home School Book Review on Hiking the Grand Mesa

Torke, Kyle.  Hiking the Grand Mesa: A Clementine the Rescue Dog Story (Published in 2020  by Loving Healing Press, 5145  Pontiac Trail, Ann Arbor, MI  48205).   Two young boys, Coover and Conrad, go with their Grandma and their mighty rescue dog, Clementine, on a desert adventure.  They hike through the southern Colorado Dobies, a series of steep hills made from adobe clay that formed as the nearby volcanoes, now extinct, eroded.  Their goal is to explore one of the most unique landscapes in Colorado–the Grand Mesa. At first, Coover seems a little sad and lonely at the apparently barren and solitary landscape, but Grandma introduces him to the rich wildlife, both plant and animal, around them, and both boys go tramping through an imaginative journey.  What will they see?  Where will they go?  And what will they do?

Hiking the Grand Mesa is a nature lover’s dream.  Beginning readers will be fascinated by the vivid history of the area as described in author Kyle Torke’s clear, detailed text, and by the beautiful scenery depicted in illustrator Barbara Torke’s gorgeous watercolor paintings.

This fun and insightful story is a wonderful, challenging reading experience with vocabulary development, contextual learning, and the encouragement of imagination.  From woodpeckers and toads, to cattails and sunflowers, youngsters will be awakened to a whole new world.  The first book in the series is Ice Breaking: The Adventures of Clementine the Rescue Dog.

Product Details

The term “metapsychology” (small m) means, briefly: The science that unifies mental and physical experience. Its purpose is to discover the rules that apply to both. It is a study of the per­son, their abilities and experience, as seen from their own point of view. Applied Metapsychology (AMP) is the subject that puts the principles of metapsychology to work for the purpose of relieving traumatic stress, promoting personal growth and development, and empowering people to improve the quality of their lives.

This dictionary includes most of the terms used in Applied Metapsychology. Working out a proper and consistent vocab­ulary for metapsychology has been a continual compromise between what sounds graceful in ordinary English and what conveys a precise meaning. Many of our terms also occur in normal speech in a sense similar to, but usually not exactly the same as, that given here, just as physics uses terms like “mass”, “density”, and “energy” in a special­ized and more precise way. Natural language is preferred instead of inventing new terms, because their meaning is similar enough to normal usage to give the reader an intuitive idea of what is meant, while the meta­psychological definition provides the needed precision for the subject.

The terminology has evolved over time. This dictionary gives the current lexicon, but some changes will likely occur in the future, and no doubt this dictionary will have to be modified and expanded. An appendix of this dictionary contains some commonly used abbrev­iations and acronyms in the subject of Applied Metapsychology
