Forest and Steppe
In the hut—one of the six that nestled together in the little hamlet by the river—the sleeping mother lay with her child.She had no sense of danger.High in the starlit summer sky, pale clouds passed from time to time, drifting in a leisurely procession, glowing softly in the reflection of a crescent moon that rode to the south.
The three families who inhabited the place had arrived five summers before and, finding there an ancient, deserted earthwork enclosure overgrown with scrub, had cleared it, put up a wooden palisade on the low earth wall, and built half a dozen huts inside. Nearby, two large fields cut untidy swaths into the trees. Farther into the woods, a messy patchwork of smaller clearings appeared.
A few hundred yards downstream, the land on both sides became marshy and remained so for a couple miles.

Mengu watched her.
He had ridden out from the camp at first light and before long had come to a low rise that gave him a good view. Across the open steppe, ten miles away, he could clearly see the line of trees and he had seen the little figure even as she emerged from the wood.
For while Yanka’s eye were sharp, the eyes of the man of the steppe were far keener.
In the clearness of early morning, before dust or haze have risen, the men of the dessert and prairie can make out a man at fifteen miles and more. Even at four miles, such warriors can spot the arm of a man hiding behind a rock.
So Mengu, like a falcon, watched the little girl as she ventured out onto the steppe and then went back.
Then he smiled. How easy it had been.

Steppe is an ecological zone consisting of plains generally lacking trees.
Steppe may also refer to:
- Eurasian Steppe, the Eurasian steppe reaching from Mongolia to Hungary
- Harry Steppe, a Jewish-American Vaudeville actor
- The Jewish Steppe, a documentary about Soviet Jews
For other uses, see Prairie (disambiguation).
Prairies are ecosystems considered part of the temperate grasslands, savannas, and shrublands biome by ecologists, based on similar temperate climates, moderate rainfall, and a composition of grasses, herbs, and shrubs, rather than trees, as the dominant vegetation type. Temperate grassland regions include the Pampas of Argentina, southern Brazil and Uruguay as well as the steppes of Eurasia. Lands typically referred to as “prairie” tend to be in North America. The term encompasses the area referred to as the Interior Lowlands of Canada, the United States, and Mexico, which includes all of the Great Plains as well as the wetter, somewhat hillier land to the east. In the U.S., the area is constituted by most or all of the states of North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma, and sizable parts of the states of Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Missouri, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, and western and southern Minnesota. The Central Valley of California is also a prairie. The Canadian Prairies occupy vast areas of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta.
A forest is a large area dominated by trees. Hundreds of more precise definitions of forest are used throughout the world, incorporating factors such as tree density, tree height, land use, legal standing and ecological function. According to the widely used Food and Agriculture Organization definition, forests covered four billion hectares (15 million square miles) or approximately 30 percent of the world’s land area in 2006.
Forests are the dominant terrestrial ecosystem of Earth, and are distributed across the globe. Forests account for 75% of the gross primary productivity of the Earth’s biosphere, and contain 80% of the Earth’s plant biomass.
Forests at different latitudes and elevations form distinctly different ecozones: boreal forests near the poles, tropical forests near the equator and temperate forests at mid-latitudes. Higher elevation areas tend to support forests similar to those at higher latitudes, and amount of precipitation also affects forest composition.
Human society and forests influence each other in both positive and negative ways. Forests provide ecosystem services to humans and serve as tourist attractions. Forests can also affect people’s health. Human activities, including harvesting forest resources, can negatively affect forest ecosystems.
“Like an apple tree+ among the trees of the forest, so is my dear one among the sons.+ His shade I have passionately desired, and there I have sat down, and his fruit has been sweet to my palate.

March 1, 2017. About Me. In the late 1980s or early 1990s I drove up to Sterling Forest and met Franklin West, to whom I was administrative assistant, at a conference center the name of which I cannot remember. He was considering the site for the annual comptrollers conference. It was not a regular hotel. The guest rooms were several groups of houses, so to speak, each with its own unique name. I now realize, the sleeping rooms or camps were similar to the Mormon Church of Satan Bohemian Grove. (It is not my intention to cause Franklin West any additional adversity. I must document this information.) The conference rooms were in the main building. In my opinion, which I did not voice, the hotel was rustic, in need of renovation. I left at 4pm or 5pm. Franklin’s wife and children met him there, probably to go swimming and sample the menu. Driving back to New Jersey, I was driving driving driving with and no main highway was in sight. It was pitch black. I prayed to Jehovah God. Finally, I thought, maybe I’m driving in the wrong direction. I cannot remember where the comptrollers conference was held. Maybe Greenwich, Connecticut; I cannot remember which hotel/conference center. I couldn’t get enough of one dessert that was the most delicious dessert I’d ever tasted: fresh strawberries with freshly whipped cream flavored with some sort of not too sweet deliciousness, what I do not know. I did not know at that time anything about Alice in Wonderland soma and Dorothy in the Wonderful Land of Oz soma, and I doubt that Franklin did either. cc all Mormon attorneys
To James Devine: I read an article by Declan somebody or other but I cannot remember where or when though I know it was in the last day or two. I am certain Declan is a CIA agent or an FBI agent member of the new and improved Clan, KKK, new and improved Nazis. (He’s not pretending to be one of Jehovah’s Witnesses,I think he’s a journalist.) Are you really my brother, or are you pretending to be my brother? Don’t tell me. I’ll find out when I visit whichever congregation you attend. I plan to visit each and every congregation that Bethelites attend; I want to have I sat down in each and every congregation that Bethelites attend, more than once, yea, many many times. Some of the CIA, DIA, FBI and other federal agents who’re pretending to be Jehovah’s Witnesses in Patterson, Wallkill and Warwick asked me to, and I want to. Desperately I want to.

The purpose of this website is to expose the Mormon Church of Satan and all enemies of Jesus Christ the Way the Truth the Life, the Prince of Peace. This website is also the beginning of a presidential campaign to elect Caroline Kennedy President of the United States. I prayed to Jehovah God to please, by means of His son Christ Jesus, please, arrange national events and world events in such a manner such that Caroline Kennedy is elected President of the United States. I know Jehovah God hears my prayer and will answer my prayer because that particular prayer of mine is one of my deepest desires and Jehovah God has promised me that he will satisfy all of my deepest desires. All of the information posted at this website is interconnected; directly connected to the Mormon Church of Satan’s illegal sting operation surrounding Jehovah’s Witnesses worldwide, and me. The illegal sting operation that encompasses every human being on earth, and has resulted in the LEGAL CASE, unlike any other, ever.
