The Answer

release date: Apr 01, 2013
The Answer
Three research scientists and a Forest Ranger have committed their time and energy to spend the summer in eastern Washington State in the great northwest searching to prove or disprove the myth surrounding Bigfoot. None of them believe that it will lead to more than a few scant clues and only meager evidence that will merely carry on the folklore. That is until they stumble upon hard evidence of the creature through a series of events that will not be easy for them or you to accept as factual. Not only is the myth of Bigfoot tackled head on but answers to such questions as UFO (Unidentified Flying Objects), crop circles, cattle and horse mutilations and the question of "are we alone in the universe" are examined and illuminated. A strange rescue mission is asked of the team but all along they must contend with the harassment of disgraceful journalists, whose mission is not necessarily the truth. The team must deal with world governments and the U.S. military who are in the middle of things for their own purposes causing the situation to become even more convoluted. Scavenger star races are set to invade but no one believes the team and they have nowhere to turn for help until a "special friend" lends some assistance in hopes of saving the people of the entire planet. The Answer is excitement, humor, love and startling revelations that will keep you interested to see what happens next. You will have to decide for yourself if this is a work of science fiction or a factual account of an elaborate cover-up.

The Joy

release date: Jan 08, 2013
The Joy
One man''s story of life in The Joy -- compulsive, chilling and frank. A no-holds-barred account of a criminal''s time in the notorious Dublin prison, as revealed to journalist Paul Howard. This extraordinary life story tells it all. The desperate lifestyle of a junkie; bullying and savage beatings among the prisoners; ingenious drug-smuggling ploys; the despairing cry for help of a failed suicide attempt. But alongside the pain there is humour -- from the hilarity of World Cup celebrations to the distraction of a beautiful aerobics teacher, from bingeing on altar wine to the shortest-ever "hunger strike". The first ever glimpse of Mountjoy Prison -- from the inside. Illustrated with black & white photographs.

Nisei Memories

release date: Mar 01, 2012
Nisei Memories
Outstanding Title, University Press Books Selected for Public and Secondary School Libraries, 2007 Edition Nisei Memories is an extraordinarily moving account of two second-generation Japanese Americans who were demonized as threats to national security during World War II. Based on Paul Takemoto''s interviews with his parents, in which they finally divulge their past, Nisei Memories follows their lives before, during, and after the war -- his father serving his country, his mother imprisoned by it. At the start of the war, twenty-one-year-old Kaname (Ken) Takemoto was a sophomore at the University of Hawaii. Although classified as an "enemy alien," he served in the army, first as a Varsity Victory Volunteer and then as a combat medic with the 100th Battalion /442nd Regimental Combat Team in Italy. Fifteen-year-old Alice Setsuko Imamoto was attending high school in California when the war began. Soon after, her father and mother were both imprisoned. She and her three sisters were sent to an assembly center in Santa Anita, and eventually the family was reunited at a relocation camp in Jerome, Arkansas. She was finally released to attend Oberlin College on a music scholarship. Like so many others, Ken and Alice had never spoken of their experiences, which, as their son explains, "loomed as backdrops to our lives, but until now were never discussed." While his father had relived his wartime experiences over and over in his mind, his mother blocked many of hers from memory. Takemoto fills in some of the gaps with information gleaned from correspondence and documents. Of unusual power and appeal, the interviews lead readers through the half century of uncertainty and trauma endured by the family before it was able to confront issues central to its existence. They tell a story of perseverance and forgiveness and, ultimately, pride.

Rhymes for the Times for Women
This is a collection of poems mini sermons, Songs, and lines for the times. I pray you find comfort and blessings in these words. Jesus instructed us to think on good things.

The Faith Continuum
God never wanted robots to blindly follow and worship him. He gave us free will to do what we want. Follow Him or not it is up to you. It''s my belief that one should know something about the omnipotent being that we decide to follow. We should know what sources we have available to us as a child of God. If your earthly father gave you $10 and told you every time you spent it, he would increase the amount, what would you do? Would you spend more and more or just save the $10. That is how faith is, the more you use it the greater it becomes. I pray that your faith increases with every chapter in this book as you use it more and more, and that your understanding increases.

Eat, Sleep, Ride

release date: Feb 15, 2011
Eat, Sleep, Ride
For Paul Howard, who has ridden the entire Tour de France route during the race itself—setting off at 4 am each day to avoid being caught by the pros—riding a small mountain-bike race should hold no fear. Still, this isn’t just any mountain-bike race. This is the Tour Divide. Running from Banff in Canada to the Mexican border, the Tour Divide is more than 2,700 miles—500 miles longer than the Tour de France. Its route along the Continental Divide goes through the heart of the Rocky Mountains and involves more than 200,000 feet of ascent—the equivalent of climbing Mount Everest seven times. The other problem is that Howard has never owned a mountain bike—and how will training on the South Downs in southern England prepare him for sleeping rough in the Rockies? Entertaining and engaging, Eat, Sleep, Ride will appeal to avid and aspiring cyclers, as well as fans of adventure/travel narrative with a humorous twist.

Two Wheels on my Wagon

release date: Apr 15, 2011
Two Wheels on my Wagon
As bicycle races go, the attractions of the Tour Divide are not immediately apparent. For a start, it is the longest mountain-bike race in the world, running nearly 3,000 miles down the Rockies from Canada to Mexico. But the distance is not the only challenge - the total ascent of 200,000 ft is the equivalent of scaling Mount Everest nearly seven times. Then there are the dangerous animals likely to be encountered on the route: grizzly bears, mountain lions and wolves, not to mention rattlesnakes and tarantulas. Worse, the rewards for all this effort are strictly limited. Unlike in the Tour de France, there is no fabled yellow jersey and no prize money. Yet, undaunted, and in spite of never having owned a mountain bike, Paul Howard signed up. Battling the worst weather for generations, drinking whiskey with a cowboy and singing karaoke with the locals, Howard''s journey turned into more than just a race - it became the adventure of a lifetime.
