Book excerpt: When US Marshal Harry Boudine buys outlaw Jack Morgan's freedom from Arizona's brutal Yuma Prison, the ex-lawman, soldier and gunfighter finds that he has to repay the debt in spades.

De Wolfe, that the South will never again bear arms against its Northern brothers. During the long ride to Mexico, blood and bullets lace the air as Morgan outwits and out-shoots anything the hired gunfighters of Rancho Santa Cruz can throw at him.

Download or read book The Other Side of the River PDF or another Format written by Alex Kotlowitz and published by Anchor. This book was released on 2012-01-04 with total page 336 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Bestselling author Alex Kotlowitz is one of this country's foremost writers on the ever explosive issue of race. In this gripping and ultimately profound book, Kotlowitz takes us to two towns in southern Michigan, St. Joseph and Benton Harbor, separated by the St. Joseph River. Geographically close, but worlds apart, they are a living metaphor for America's racial divisions: St. Joseph is a prosperous lakeshore community and ninety-five percent white, while Benton Harbor is impoverished and ninety-two percent black. When the body of a black teenaged boy from Benton Harbor is found in the river, unhealed wounds and suspicions between the two towns' populations surface as well. The investigation into the young man's death becomes, inevitably, a screen on which each town projects their resentments and fears. The Other Side of the River sensitively portrays the lives and hopes of the towns' citizens as they wrestle with this mystery--and reveals the attitudes and misperceptions that undermine race relations throughout America.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A wounded Stonewall Jackson has a chance to reflect on his life and finds himself in a spiritual battle, greater than the one on the battlefields outside his window. Robert D. Halpert’s historical novel is a thought-provoking journey into an era of America’s greatest civil upheaval and into the mind of one that era’s unique characters. It is a time when men and women are forced to decide between state and nation, family and cause, and the morality of a predicament that has plagued the nation from its inception. Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson emerges from the conflict as one of the great legends of American history. Gaining fame in both North and South, as well as across the world for his gifted military abilities, he wages a war a “civil war” within himself to subdue what he knows, if left unbridled, will destroy him. To the modern reader, he is generally considered an eccentric religious military genius. But the role of his spiritual life is often glossed over or ignored. In telling this story, the author has not neglected the dearly held and deep-rooted faith of the man, which in turn will hopefully help readers, and especially those for whom the Civil War is a compelling interest, to appreciate Lt. General Thomas “Stonewall “ Jackson in a different light. Within the context of historical fiction and making use of abundant research, the author attempts to draw a picture of a man of deep-rooted faith, at war with himself within a parallel breathtaking background of a nation at war with itself. It is time of agonizing national conflict and pain, with a resultant resolution for the nation and soaring spiritual resolution for the man.

Download or read book The Other Side of the World PDF or another Format written by Mary Jo Clark and published by Strategic Book Publishing. This book was released on 2011-07-01 with total page 374 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Other Side of the World: Vision and Reality embraces and celebrates the experiences of idealistic, young Peace Corps volunteers as they confronted the ancient and enigmatic civilization of India four decades ago. Prompted by memories and emotions tapped during a gathering on the 40-year reunion of their return to the States, members of India 44 A&B provide reflections that are honest, compelling, insightful, riotous, humbling, and yet redemptive. These reflections give expression to feelings long repressed and, at the same time, uncover the mysterious ways in which their service in remote India transformed and redirected the trajectory of their lives. Their stories provide a humorous and deeply moving description of village life, where imperfect language skills and limited technical capabilities interacted with good intentions and stubborn dedication to produce embarrassment on the one hand, and the occasional minor miracle on the other. This is not a feel-good testimony to the Peace Corps on its golden anniversary.Rather, it is a sobering depiction of the lives of volunteers living in one of the Peace Corps' most demanding site countries, where frustrations and challenges were found in abundance. Yet at the end of the day, these stories generally attest to the wisdom of the Peace Corps concept, which affirms the powers of volunteerism and the giving of self. For many, it was the first time these volunteers had articulated their feelings since leaving India. Mary Jo Clark, Thomas Corbett, Michael Simonds and Haywood Turrentine compiled the book. Respectively, the authors reside in San Diego, California, Madison, Wisconsin, the greater Hartford area, and Birmingham, Alabama. http: //sbpra.com/HaywoodTurrentin

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: An epic saga based on true events of the American West—with the trailblazing fur trappers and the mountain men who lived it. This is an unforgettable journey into the untamed American frontier. Where nature is cruel, violence lurks behind every tree, and where only the strongest of the strong survive. This is a story of America. TO THE RIVER’S END Luke Ransom was just eighteen years old when he answered an ad in a St. Louis newspaper that would change his life forever. The American Fur Company needed one-hundred enterprising men to travel up the Missouri River—the longest in North America—all the way to its source. They would hunt and trap furs for one, two, or three years. Along the way, they would face unimaginable hardships: grueling weather, wild animals, hunger, exhaustion, and hostile attacks by the Blackfeet and Arikara. Luke Ransom was one of the brave men chosen for the job—and one of the few to survive . . . Five years later, Luke is a seasoned trapper and hunter, a master of his trade. The year is 1833, and the American Fur Company is sending him to the now-famous Rendezvous at Green River. For Luke, it may be his last job for the company. After facing death countless times, he is ready to strike out on his own. But when he encounters a fellow trapper under attack by Indians, his life takes an unexpected turn. A new friendship is forged in blood. And a dangerous new journey begins…
