Sunuma (discarded baby triumphs to tell his story Book 1)

by Roland Kemokai

Liberia: 1989. The country is on the brink of civil war, poverty overwhelms the cities and villages, and uncertainty is everywhere. SUNUMA (which means, “on the dump-pile”) tells the story of a young boy growing up in the midst of war-torn Liberia. At only 3-months old, little Boikai is found discarded on a dump-pile by an older woman who takes him back to her already crowded home. The stakes for survival are high and he quickly develops the courage, wit, and faith to fend for himself against hunger, abuses, and vicious rebel thugs. Despite all his hardship, Roland recognizes the good things in life: the camaraderie of a boys’ club, good books, music, and the smile of a pretty girl. A moving story of tenacity and redemption, this first book of a planned trilogy shows that through per...

Romeo's Dilemma: A (true) Modern Love Story

by John P. Gavin

The book you’re about to read is like no book you’ve ever read before.

It’s a memoir, a self-help book, and a true story of love and redemption – but it’s something else too.

It starts when I get a job as a newspaper advice columnist (I became ‘The Online Dating Coach’) and here’s the weird part: My weekly columns, though written for and about others, end up describing my own struggle to get back to the guy I used to be - a good man worthy of a good woman’s love.

The columns are organized into the months of one year. Each month is an ‘Act’ which also describes how the tragicomedy I call my life was going at the time. The early months are pretty much a series of bad habits and blown chances.

But even though I’d bec...

Urban Warfare: An Up Close Look at Inner City Violence: BY DAMON POKE

by Damon Poke

Urban Warfare is a must read for those trying to understand youth violence in places like Chicago and Detroit. This short story documents the real life accounts of Nimrod I'blis, an out of work tool room operator trapped between his dreams of being a rapper and his reality of being a nickel and dime hustler in a neighborhood plagued with gun play and extreme poverty. This emotional tale is action packed from the outset, but as an academic device it does not fail to deliver a work worthy of scholarly study. Nimrod tells all about a world typically isolated from mainstream society and well guarded by a code of silence that residents dare not violate. He candidly describes the misery and despair associated with the so called street-life. There is no romantic glory to be found on these pages. ...

In the Shadows: Conspiracy

by R Chamberlain

Conspiracy Theories raise eyebrows and are often assumed to be the result of paranoia. This book reviews the background, events, and people involved in 22 historical assassinations - all of which involved high profile individuals (political, religious, or cultural). The evidence (as well as the 'unanswered questions') in these cases reveals that fully half of them are either very highly likely to have resulted from a conspiracy, or were proven in a court of law to have been the result of a conspiracy.
The cases chosen span more than 2,000 years, and come from America, Europe and Asia.
This book shows that, without question, asking the question "Was it a conspiracy or a lone gunman?" is not only a perfectly valid question, it often reveals that the available information makes ...

While her charming presence as one of film’s first true young talents is often what is associated with her name, Temple’s acting career was merely a small portion of her long and fruitful life.
Though she rightfully earned her place in film history, her later work to promote peace and social justice globally deserves as much praise and adoration as her entertainment work.

His choices:

Finish college, get a 9-5 job and live a normal life in America.

Or brave the unknown, "making aliyah," and move to Israel under the Law of Return where every Jew is entitled automatic citizenship to the Jewish State.

The Life and Times of Col. Daniel Boone, Hunter, Soldier, and Pioneer (Illustrated)

Daniel Boone was the ideal of the American pioneer—brave, cool, self-reliant, a dead shot with his rifle, a consummate master of woodcraft, with sturdy frame, hopeful at all times, and never discouraged by disasters which caused many a weaker spirit to faint by the way. All that the pen of romance depicts in the life of one whose lot is cast in the Western forests, marked the career of Boone. In the lonely solitudes he encountered the wild animal and the fiercer wild man; and he stood on the bastions at Boonesborough through the flaming sun or the solemn hours of night, exchanging shots with the treacherous Shawanoe, when every bullet fired was meant to extinguish a human life; he was captured by Indians three times, his companions were shot down at his side, his daughter was carried awa...
