"This book has been written especially for those who have yet to find the person who will turn their lives around completely, work miracles in their lives, and give them a reason for living, whether it is the teenager who feels lost, unloved and unwanted. Perhaps turned to drugs. Or, the adult who has lost his or her way. There IS an answer! It is my hope that you will not only find that answer but will pass this book on so that others may find and enjoy that answer, too. I found the answer a long, long time ago. I've never been sorry I did!"

A Sweet and Sour Kraut's Journey to America
Author: Armin K. Wendt
Publisher: Xlibris Corporation
Category: Biography & Autobiography
Armin's exodus from the tyranny and destruction of war-tom Germany to the liberating shores of America is a quintessential story of the 20th century. He regales the reader with riveting recounts of living through the Allied fire bombings that defeated fascist Germany and the dramatic fight for survival in post-apocalyptic Europe. This is an enthralling, entertaining read about an immigrant's first impressions of America, told with a self-effacing and deprecating sense of humor. I heartily recommend the jaunty travails extolled in: From Lederhosen to Jeans: A Sweet and Sour Kraut's Journey to America. John Large, Ph.D. Asst. Professor, University of South Florida From his childhood in war-ravaged Hamburg to success in America, Armin Wendt takes us along on many journeys - including eluding Russian guards behind the Iron Curtain and encountering banditos in Central-America. Anything but the stereotypical "staid German," Wendt describes his adventures lovingly and compassionately, often in a humorous way. Anecdotes abound throughout, making this book a delightful read.

In the Shadow of the Wolf Except for three stories, Redcoat, Flight, and A Soldier’s Story, the remaining accounts explore adventures occurring during the nineteenth century, mainly the settling of the western frontier and the turbulence of the Civil War. As in the previous two volumes, Life at Stake and Ryley and Other Stories of Adventure, each story portrays how individuals confront and cope with extreme physical and emotional challenges during life-deciding moments. Any protagonist, whether in a movie, novel, short story, or TV episode, invites the viewer or reader to vicariously place himself or herself in that same situation, wondering what decision or action he or she might have taken under similar circumstances. On this premise, we, as readers and viewers, commonly develop an estimation of our own strength, will, courage, worth, and ability to survive. It is to be hoped that the characters in these stories will stimulate such interest and thought. But, primarily, it must be remembered that fiction is to be enjoyed. As a writer, it is my sincere hope that I have achieved this to some degree of satisfaction.
A Cultural History to 1920
Author: Peter Fjagesund
Northern Europe and North America have dominated the world stage for more than two centuries. Using a wide range of sources, this book provides the first coherent account from a multi-national perspective of the ideas and perceptions that, from the Renaissance onwards, fuelled the North’s rise to prominence, and enabled it to rival the traditional cultural and political hegemony of the South. This includes not only the fascinating conquest of the polar regions, but also the religious upheaval of the Reformation, the changing view of nature engendered by Romanticism, and, not least, the revival of ancient Nordic and Celtic culture. Finally, the book offers an indispensable historical background to current events in the Far North, where the past and the future meet in a complex web of dramatic environmental concerns, the exploitation of natural resources, and the strategies of politics and commerce.
Exploring Experimental, Rocket Plane, and Spycraft Incidents, Accidents and Crash Sites
Author: Tony Moore
Publisher: Specialty Press
Known as "The X-Hunters," authors Peter W. Merlin and Tony Moore have located more than 100 crash sites of exotic aircraft from Edwards air Force Base and Area 51. Together, they have recovered parts of supersonic rocket planes, stealthy spy craft, and vehicles that have reached the edge of space. Each story in the book profiles an unusual aircraft and the brave men who flew it. The authors examine the contributing causes of each crash and use then-and-now photographs to illustrate their findings. The stories end with The X-Hunters' search for the crash site and what they discovered. Each adventure combines C.S.I.-type skills with X-Files persistence, with a dash of Indiana Jones for adventure. Aircraft profiled include the YB-49 and a pair of N9M flying wings, X-1A, X-1D, VB-51, XB-70, SR-71, YF-12, U-2 prototype, and many more. The photos in this edition are black and white.
Preparing For The Worst 1945 - 2010
Author: Peter Hennessy
Publisher: Penguin UK
This updated edition of The Secret State revises Hennessy's picture of the Soviet threat that was presented to ministers from the last days of the Second World War to the 1960s. He maps the size and shape of the Cold War state built in response to that perceived threat, and traces the arguments successive generations of ministers, the military and civil servants have used to justify the British nuclear capability. He also adds new material exploring the threats presented by the IRA and radical Islamic terrorists post 9/11. In what circumstances would the Prime Minister authorize the use of nuclear force and how would his orders be carried out? What would the Queen be told and when? In this captivating new account, Peter Hennessy provides the best answers we have yet had to these questions.
