The Best of Pickering

The Best of Pickering by Sam PickeringPraise for Sam Pickering: "Pickering has all of Thurber's humor, and he writes as well as E. B. White. He writes with passion, wit, and a strange personal note of self-mockery; he is humanely educated, wise, and capable of a wide range of stylistic effects." ----Jay Parini ". . . he writes in the tradition of Montaigne hammering together a ramshackle affair of surprising nooks, crannies and additions-all under the same roof." ---The Oxford American "Pickering has the natural essayist's intimate yet distanced take on the world that combines a devotion to particulars . . . with a near-indifference...

From Nothing To Something

From Nothing To Something by Mary Clark AlvarezThis book deals with the story of a normal every day American family who dared to obey God at all cost. In a practical way it shows that even in 21st century America, God has the very same desire to show Himself as miraculous and powerful as He did in the pages of the Bible. An American family of six obeyed God and gave away everything. God then led them to New Mexico and the Pueblo Indians and then to Africa to preach the gospel. The book shows that all things are possible for God in a most practical way.

The Education of a WASP

Brimming with honestly and passion, The Education of a WASP chronicles one white woman's discovery of racism in 1960s America.
