Author Elizabeth Ferris brings endearing stories, inspiration, and positive values to children, teens and adults. Elizabeth Ferris' love of books started early. Even as a child she combined the creation of books with the business of selling them. Neighbors recount how young Elizabeth sold her brother's comic books from a stand in her family's front yard. Later, when Elizabeth had children of her own, she created "All 4 Kids," a captivating, educating, and entertaining newspaper for daycare providers. She also published the magazine "Innovate," read and appreciated throughout Northern British Columbia, Canada. Today Elizabeth Ferris is the proud author of popular children's books, including "Positively Georgia: The Motivational Tale of a Unique Airedale," "Positively Georgia's Guide to Surviving Grief," and the latest: "Positively Georgia: Chin Up, Pup-Canine Confidence." Georgia is a cuddly Airedale dog who sees everything in her world as joyful and wondrous. These books offer reassuring and inspiring lessons for children, teens, and adults. All books are beautifully illustrated and crafted with love. Elizabeth draws from a lifetime of sometimes difficult experiences. Her parents immigrated to Canada from Hungary, creating a marvelous family with more than 60 years of love. Today Elizabeth divides her time between writing books and serving as an executive assistant for a health authority in Western Canada. Watch for the next Elizabeth Ferris book, coming soon!

Texte du rabat

?Ferris has written more than a book on Central American refugees. She presents succinctly the domestic political situations, foreign policies, and refugee policies of Mexico, Costa Rica, Honduras, the US, and Nicaragua. Ferris's thesis--that national political traditions, foreign policy orientations, domestic economic conditions, and the relative numbers of refugees arriving in each country are the principal determinants of refugee policy--is explored and affirmed. In addition, the conditions that create refugee flow in the various Central American countries are examined. Ferris points out that refugees are not one homogenous group, but can be classed as political exiles, urban refugees, or peasants. An excellent introduction to the political conditions, foreign policies, and refugee policies of these countries. There is no comparable work on Central American refugees.?-Choice
