Summary

An epic journey through a vibrant new country! In 1905, the veteran war correspondent Ralph D. Paine set out to explore the American West, sending back his dispatches to Outing magazine. He saw towns appearing like magic on the North Dakota prairie, loggers tearing the heart out of the Cascade forests, and cowboys making their last roundup in Montana. He explored the Pacific Coast from Seattle to the "pleasure and health resort" of Los Angeles, where an electric trolly whisked him from the city to the Santa Anita Ranch in a few minutes. 
From there he went by train, desert automobile, and stage coach to the gold fields of Nevada. Wherever he went, there was bustle, progress, and unquenchable optimism, as the frontier closed and America began to grow into the world's superpower. Brought to new life by the historian and novelist Daniel Ford.

    The covers were tumbled and awry, as though she had just left it, and the memory of the dream was so strong that instinctively he found himself searching the floor to see if the dream explosion had thrown her down....But they were odd and brooding, too, this night and he barely listened to Dennermans complaints about not being able to get good phone service or his wifes comments on the disgusting variety of television commercials they had these days....Although you could be right, you know; Ive had plenty of time to think it over these last few weeks, after they got you, and its possible theyre Russians after all. ...But thats saving two or three hundred million dollars a year-and if they pay only ten or twenty per cent of that for the use of Tylerton, its still dirt cheap for them and a fortune for whoever took over Tylerton....The expression on the mans face was one he had read about but never actually seen: Dorchins mouth fell open and his eyes went wide, and though he managed to make a sound that might have been a question, it was not in words.

    Hidden Secrets of Infertility...

    For those who have never experienced it, the heartbreak of infertility is difficult to put into words.  Of course, you know you'll be good parents.  But yet you look around your house and there are no children to call your own. 
    You go outside.  You see happy children, happy couples and happy families.  Why aren't you one of them? 
    Is it fair? 
    Of course not.  But that's the bad news.  You're infertile.  There is a silver lining -- at least that's what you keep telling yourself.  And that's the fact that the time period in which you live is blessed with the most modern technology, making even the seemingly impossible act for you -- getting pregnant -- a possibility. 
    And as long as you haven't exhausted all your possibilities, you're going to keep hoping and praying that one day -- very soon -- you will be pregnant. 
    And that's not false hope. If you would have lived a hundred years ago, your infertility would have been a foregone conclusion.  Today a wide variety of options are at your disposal that may very well help you turn the corner from childless to loving parent. 
    And while I'm talking right now specifically about modern conventional -- in some cases high tech -- treatments.  Those aren't the only options available to you. 
    Don't dismiss out of hand the seemingly simple, common sense ideas that may come your way as well.  These very many times come in the form of a more natural approach. 
    You Are Not Alone 
    I'm sure this doesn't make you feel any better, but you're not alone in what must surely seem to you at times as a desperate attempt to conceive and give birth. 
    Consider the following statistics if you will.  There are approximately 7.3 million women between the ages of 15 to 44 -- those peak childbearing ages who experience some problems with getting pregnant.  These individuals are not infertile, but they are, nonetheless, experiencing problems conceiving. 
    Another 2 million women or roughly 7 ½ percent of the population in the 15 to 44 demographic are, indeed, infertile. 
    It's for these women and their partners that this book is written.  No on can imagine the individual heartbreak each couple is experiencing.  And no one for sure really knows how many unions have been broken due to infertility problems. 
    The scope of the problem, the many facets of the subject -- by sheer volume alone -- prevents any in depth presentation of the problems and its possible solutions. 
    The book though does represent a jumping off point, if you will, a primer of sorts for the subject of infertility, providing you with the start of an overall wide ranging education. 
    Think of Hidden Secrets of Infertility as your introduction to the topic -- your first along a journey in your attempt to define and solve your problem.   
    In addition to the chapters on causes, treatment -- both conventional and alternative - you'll find resources.  They are your next step solving your infertility problems. 
    Good luck!
