Game of My Life
Virginia Tech's Shayne Graham trots onto the field at West Virginia on November 6, 1999, with two thoughts in his mind. One is a missed field goal that would have beaten Miami a year earlier. The other is the 44-yard field goal he is about to try against the Mountaineers, a kick he must make if the Hokies are to stay unbeaten and on track for a national championship. Head down, he focuses on his mark as the ball is snapped. He steps forward, the dream of an entire team resting with his leg.Now, hear Graham's memory of that kick in his own words, for the first time. Game of My Life: Virginia Tech celebrates the extraordinary football and basketball moments that have shaped the college's rich athletic heritage. Through interviews with some of the school's most prestigious athletes, Hokies fans can relive the big games that defined the school's winning tradition.Carroll Dale, later a fixture with the Green Bay Packers, dove-arms outstretched-to haul in a crucial two-point conversion in a 1957 game against the University of Richmond. Les Henson shot from the baseline-the other baseline-as the clock neared zero against Florida State in 1980. Chris Smith went well beyond the "double-double" standard for points and rebounds. How about 30 and 31 against Marshall in 1959? Corey Moore made life miserable for Clemson quarterback Brandon Streeter one night in 1999. Bruce Smith did the same for Duke quarterback Ben Bennett in 1983. The Hokies' Jim Pyne, meanwhile, made sure Syracuse's Kevin Mitchell didn't do the same to Tech quarterback Maurice DeShazo in 1993.Carlos Dixon, Mike Imoh, Andre Davis, Dell Curry, Bryan Still, Don Strock, Bryan Randall-all the Tech greats from the gridiron and hardwoodare in these pages, including coach Frank Beamer. Join thousands of Virginia Tech fans in remembering these cherished stories. For the athletes within, these truly were the games of their lives.

Curio's Search for Cool
Whether we are male or female, young or old, a young boy's search for respect is something we can all relate to. The search for significance is an innate desire that permeates our choices, even though we don't always realize it. Especially when what we bring to the table (our natural strengths) aren't so obvious and positive attention isn't so automatic. And so it was with Curio. This is a story of an adolescent's search for himself, told through the bedtime talks between a single, widowed father and his son. Not only does it portray a healthy relationship between father and son, it uncovers many of the paradoxes associated with our search for a respectful identity. Each night, Dad spurs his son on like Jesus would have, with just enough insight to prod Curio's desire for more. Until finally, Curio surprises his father with wisdom straight out of Heaven itself.

True Adventures of the Floating Poet
Free Spirited with Salty Lyric Waves Poet Mike Harris pens his disillusions on his own terms and comes up with truth, philosophy, epiphany and catharsis-in-jest Beaufort, South Carolina. – (Release Date TBD) – For a surety (shoe-rate-ey), True Adventures of the Floating Poet, Mike Harris’ collection of verse, is not The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. But it is as salt- and barnacle-encrusted as that distant predecessor. Born out of a need to get away from Wall Street-induced (and ultimately fake) problems, self-styled Capt. Mike left for the Caribbean on a normal day in New York. All poets who have followed the seabreeze to a life of adventure on the waves share the author’s respect for the sensible in the face of chance and nature. From the first poem “The Holy Clam and the birth of Clamism,” the author divests himself of the trappings of the “civilized” jungles of boardroom and yuppie restaurants, distances himself from them because they induce spiritual phobia, and rides out on the crests of a versified ocean like Neptune riding sea-horses. Not unlike Hunter S. Thompson’s (author of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas) famous sojourn into pre-Castro Cuba, this Mike Harris’ “vacation” has produced an awesome, seismic new reading of the largely unspotlighted areas of the American dream that few except the disillusioned intellectuals get to comment on. Both Thompson and Harris, like Coleridge, do not get to drink much water. In both the modern writers’ cases, whiskey (or perhaps rum, in Harris’ case) is the philosophical lubrication of choice. The difference is that Harris holds out some hope for the reader whom this volume will surely hook – it makes Harris an excellent, not quite indifferent, grungy, but compassionate fisher of men. He who floats has surely lived to tell a deeply funny, ultimately meaningful, compelling tale...

International Leadership by a Canada Strong and Free
Annotation "In this fifth volume of the Canada Strong and Free series, Mike Harris and Preston Manning call for Canada to reclaim its leadership role in the international arena. They focus on three foreign policy priorities which would enable Canada to significantly advance its national interests and international influence across a broad front." "Freer international trade offers the most effective means of increasing Canadian prosperity and sustaining essential social services." "Harris and Manning propose a Canada-US Customs Union involving a common external tariff, a joint approach to the treatment of third-country goods, a fully integrated energy market, a common approach to trade remedies and border security, and an integrated government procurement regime." "Harris and Manning recommend the adoption of the Tools of Wealth Creation approach to attacking poverty - focusing not on the redistribution of wealth but on a broader distribution of tools for creating wealth such as property rights, access to capital, human capital development, access to technology, and access to trade markets. They also propose greater use of public-private partnerships for infrastructure and vaccine development, reforming CIDA, completely untying food aid from any requirements that it be provided from Canadian sources, and the new paradigm of providing aid and peacekeeping simultaneously in conflict and post-conflict situations."--BOOK JACKET.
