The Knights Templar - A Secret Society?
When it comes to secret societies, or at least societies that are full of legend and myth, the Knights Templar are one of the highest ranking. If it wasnít a legend before, entertainment makes it one. But what is the truth about the Knights Templar? Are they really what we think they were?

The Rosicrucians as a Secret Society
What makes a secret society? Well, they have to have secrets and they have to put fear in those that are not part of it. The Rosicrucians have done that for hundreds of years.
Chengli and the Silk Road Caravan - Book Review
Young adults, mainly those just becoming teenagers, love adventure. If it is done well, the child can learn much about geography, history, cultures, and other areas without even knowing it. I found this to be true with Hildi Kangís Chengli and the Silk Road Caravan.
