    Daniel Quinn

   Mr. Quinn is best known as the author of Ishmael, the novel that in 1991 won the Turner Tomorrow Fellowship, established to encourage authors to seek "creative and positive solutions to global problems." Ishmael has been in print continuously since its publication in 1992 and is currently available in twenty languages.

     Daniel Quinn (1935- ) grew up in Omaha, Nebraska, where he graduated from Creighton Prep in 1953. He studied at St. Louis University, the University of Vienna, and Loyola University of Chicago, receiving a bachelor's degree in English, cum laude, in 1957.

     During a twenty-year career in educational and consumer publishing in Chicago, he served as Biography and Fine Arts editor at the American Peoples Encyclopedia, managing editor of the Greater Cleveland Mathematics Program (Science Research Associates), head of the mathematics department at Encyclopedia Britannica Educational Corporation, Executive Editor of Fuller & Dees Publishing (a division of the Times Mirror Corporation) and Editorial Director of the Society for Visual Education (a division of the Singer Corporation).

      Quinn's books center around environmental problems. He offers some type of hope for our futures and those that will follow us. If  you feel you can't do anything to help with all of the problems out there because you are just one person just remember the resounding message that creeps through all of these books. USE LESS. Just reduce what you use from 2% to 10%. All of one helpless persons will soon add up to making the difference. The is no stopping the problem, only slowing it down. 


Amazon has a great program  that will help people save a bit more on the price of a copy of Ishmael and other books.  It's called "Share the Love," and it works this way,

Each time you place an order for something (like a copy of Ishmael), Amazon will offer you the chance to e-mail your friends and give them an additional 10% off the item you bought. If anyone purchases the item within a week, you'll receive a credit to use the next time you shop at Amazon. Your credit will equal the dollar amount of your friend's 10% discount. Let's say you bought a copy of Ishmael for $11.17 and decided to Share the Love with a friend on that purchase. Your friend would be able to buy a copy for $10.06. You would receive a credit for $1.11 (the difference) to use any time in the next 30 days. You are eligible to receive one credit per item shared.

To get to the Share the Love option, click the Your Account link at the top of most pages on the Amazon site. From there, select the Share the Love link beneath the Shopping Lists & Gift Registries heading in the Account Settings box.

For complete info, go to share the love. And, of course, if you begin your book order from the link at this website, Order Ishmael ,you'll be helping provide support for the website as well.
