When cowboy Clay Jared signs on to ride for the Circle V Ranch, he soon discovers his boss, Jag Van Buren, has his sights set on buying the smaller Flying B Ranch. In order to force a sale, he has its owner murdered, cowboys killed, and cattle run off, leaving the widow Kate Beckett and her daughter at his mercy. Jared and another cowboy, Frank Dunn, can't stomach the injustice so they offer their guns to the Flying B Ranch. When that happens it puts the two of them in the middle of a battle to the death. That's when the bullets begin to fly and the bodies begin to pile up in Copperhead Moon.
Hidden in the desert for nearly 2,000 years, a little-known scroll gives clues to the whereabouts of a hoard of fabulous, ancient treasures. But no one has been able to uncover the scroll's secrets. Until now. With the aid of Professor Peter Niven, Skye Belle and her brother Brandon set off on an adventure beginning in the deserts of Egypt. Peter believes he has the key to unlocking the riddle of the scroll - or as he calls it, the Copper Map. It is a journey that will take them through all of the beauty and dangers of the Holy Lands. But with such an awesome amount of wealth at stake, there are others who will do anything to lay hold of the treasure for themselves. Skye and Brandon are about to find out just how cunning and ruthless their enemies can be. And as they search for the hidden secrets of the Copper Map, the very trustworthiness of the bible is called into question. But Skye is determined. Not only does she want to discover the long lost treasure, she also wants to prove that the events recorded in the bible actually happened. She knows that the evidence is out there, all she and Brandon have to do is stay safe long enough to find it. *** Praise for The Lost Treasure of Persia *** "EXCELLENT" Christian Children's Book Review "Skye Bell is an adventurous and believable 3D character...

This book has its origins in a resolution passed by the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations in July 1975 requesting the Secretary-General to prepare a 10 to 15 year evaluation of the prospects for copper. The investigation was carried out by the Centre for Natural Resources, Energy and Transport, with the help of consultants, and the results summarized in a report submitted to the Committee on Natural Re- sources, a subsidiary body of the Economic and Social Council, in May 1977. This book presents the findings of that investigation in greater detail, draws out the impli- cations of those findings more fully, and describes the methodology employed more completely than was possible in the earlier report. It also incorporates the results of additional work carried out by the authors since the spring of 1977 so as to take into account recent developments as well as comments received from the participants at the meeting of the Committee on Natural Resources where the summary paper was re- viewed. Although all three authors are collectively, and individually, responsible for the whole book, Mr. Wolfgang Gluschke assumes a special responsibility for Chapters IV, V and VI, Mr. Joseph F. Shaw for Chapters I, II, and VIII, and Mr. Bension Varon for Chapters III and VII. The work on the book was undertaken under the general supervision and guidance of Mr. Varon, then Assistant Director ofthe United Nations Centre for Natural Resources, Energy and Transport.
