The Man Who Built the Sierra Club: A Life of David Brower

The Man Who Built the Sierra Club: A Life of David Brower by Robert WyssDavid Brower (1912–2000) was a central figure in the modern environmental movement. His leadership, vision, and elegant conception of the wilderness forever changed how we approach nature. In many ways he was a twentieth-century Thoreau. Brower transformed the Sierra Club into a national force that challenged and stopped federally sponsored projects that would have dammed the Grand Canyon and destroyed hundreds of millions of acres of our nation??s wilderness. To admirers, he was tireless, passionate, visionary, and unyielding. To opponents and even some supporters, he was contentious and polarizing....

France, Story of a Childhood by Zahia RahmaniThis moving tale of imprisonment and escape, persecution and loss, is narrated by the daughter of an alleged Harki, an Algerian soldier who fought for the French during the Algerian War for Independence. It was the fate of such men to be twice exiled, first in their homeland after the war, and later in France, where fleeing Harki families sought refuge but instead faced contempt, discrimination, and exclusion. Zahia Rahmani blends reality and imagination in her writing, offering a fictionalized version of her own family's struggle. Lara Vergnaud's beautiful translation from the French perfectly...

A. E. Housman: A Single Life

A. E. Housman: A Single Life by Martin BlocksidgeA.E. Housman's poetry (especially A Shropshire Lad) remains well-known, widely read and often quoted. However, Housman did not view himself as a professional poet, always making quite clear that his 'proper job' was as a Professor of Latin. Housman's fame as a poet has often obscured the fact that he was the leading British classical scholar of his generation, and a Cambridge Professor. It has also sometimes been suggested that Housman's two areas of activity are the sign of a flawed or 'divided' personality. A.E. Housman: A Single Life, argues that there is no fundamental tension between Housman...

Prince: A Thief in the Temple

Prince: A Thief in the Temple by Brian MortonPrince Rogers Nelson released his first album in 1978. In the years that followed until his death in April 2016, he became a superstar, a recluse, an inspiration, an enigma, a slave and a symbol. He was a master of reinvention, but the one constant in his astonishing career was his genius: as a singer, a songwriter, a performer and a musician. He sold more than 100 million albums, won seven Grammys, a Golden Globe and an Oscar. His ability to fuse styles and genres made him one of the most unique, influential and beloved artists in music history. In Prince: A Thief in the Temple, acclaimed journalist...

In November 1942, Paul Andrew Kennedy (1912--1993) boarded the St. Elena in New York Harbor and sailed for Casablanca as part of Operation Torch, the massive Allied invasion of North Africa. As a member of the US Army's 2nd Auxiliary Surgical Group, he spent the next thirty-four months working in North Africa, Italy, France, and Germany, in close proximity to the front lines and often under air or artillery bombardment.

Geertje: War Seen through the Eyes of a Child as an Adult

Geertje: War Seen through the Eyes of a Child as an Adult by Gerda Blokhuis Vandenhaak

World War II officially ended some seventy years ago, but for some people, it lives on.

Gerda Blokhuis Vandenhaak, who spent the war in the Netherlands, still recalls the hunger and fear she felt throughout the war-that sticks out more than hearing about the two little boys killed or the blank expression of her father when she visited him in a concentration camp.

She looks back at the confusion she felt as a child, and how she always managed to get food for her family as a seven-year-old-even if it meant breaking curfew to roam the countryside and beg at a farmhouse.

When the war ended, her troubles...

Molested: A Missionary Child's Journey

At a very young age, Ana was sexually molested. She grew up unlike other kids. Instead of enjoying her childhood, she grew up confused, afraid, and alone. This fear and confusion continued into her teen years and even into adulthood. The ghosts of her past would not let her go-they kept her bound and tied in turmoil.

Child sexual abuse and sex trafficking are growing concerns as epidemics in culture and society. There are doctors,...

Ephesus Pure in Heart

Ephesus Pure in Heart by Michael PawlowskiEphesus Pure in Heart is the fact based account of the evangelical efforts of John and Mary Magdalene in Ephesus and Anatolia from 49AD to 65AD. All of their efforts were constantly being challenged by the lecherous Emperor Claudius, the treacherous Emperor Nero, murderous Deputy Consul Celer, the dogmatic Jewish community, Greek idolatry and Roman immorality. In spite of grave resistance, significant progress was achieved in social programs and religious practice. Ultimately Ephesus became an important center in the early Ecclesia. Their story of teamwork is memorable; and their commitment,...

His comedic talents made him a nighttime fixture during the golden age of TV variety shows, and his phrasing and musicianship...

Trapped Inside an Anxious Mind and My Journey Out: from a Therapist's Perspective.

Trapped Inside an Anxious Mind and My Journey Out: from a Therapist's Perspective. by Sara LeesonGrowing up in a house where domestic violence occurs is terrifying. It is devastating for the victim and also for the children who witness it. I felt unsafe and alone inside my house and outside in the world most of the time. Traumatic events affect people in different ways - I struggled with fear and critical self-talk. My anxiety and nervousness later led to medicating with alcohol and desperately needing validation from others. Turning into a people-pleaser to avoid harm was not a wise thing to do. Rather than protect me, often times, it put me in regrettable situations. When this happened,...
