Sam learns about courage, danger, and independence during his year in the wilderness, a year that changes his life forever. “An extraordinary book . . . It will be read year after year.” —The Horn Book

Have you ever wondered what the future may look like? In this book, you'll explore 10 ways technology could alter our way of life. The challenge for you is to decide which changes you want for yourself and the world. In the future, will we teleport from place to place, keep dinosaurs as pets or 3D-print our dinner?

In this book, you'll meet the scientists working to bring science fiction to life and learn how soon we might have amazing new technology. You'll also delve deep into questions about right and wrong. Just because we can do something doesn't mean we should. How can we build the best possible future for everyone on Earth?

Hatchet Book Review:

Celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of the Newbery Honor–winning survival novel Hatchet with a pocket-sized edition perfect for travelers to take along on their own adventures. This special anniversary edition includes a new introduction and commentary by author Gary Paulsen, pen-and-ink illustrations by Drew Willis, and a water resistant cover. Hatchet has also been nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read. Thirteen-year-old Brian Robeson, haunted by his secret knowledge of his mother’s infidelity, is traveling by single-engine plane to visit his father for the first time since the divorce. When the plane crashes, killing the pilot, the sole survivor is Brian. He is alone in the Canadian wilderness with nothing but his clothing, a tattered windbreaker, and the hatchet his mother had given him as a present. At first consumed by despair and self-pity, Brian slowly learns survival skills—how to make a shelter for himself, how to hunt and fish and forage for food, how to make a fire—and even finds the courage to start over from scratch when a tornado ravages his campsite. When Brian is finally rescued after fifty-four days in the wild, he emerges from his ordeal with new patience and maturity, and a greater understanding of himself and his parents.

The Other Side of the Mountain Book Review:

With the election of a new Abbot at the Abbey of Gethsemani, Merton enters a period of unprecedented freedom, culminating in the opportunity to travel to California, Alaska, and finally the Far East – journeys that offer him new possibilities and causes for contemplation. In his last days at the Abbey of Gethsemani, Merton continues to follow the tumultuous events of the sixties, including the assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr., and Robert Kennedy. In Southeast Asia, he meets the Dalai Lama and other Buddhist and Catholic monks and discovers a rare and rewarding kinship with each. The final year is full of excitement and great potential for Merton, making his accidental death in Bangkok, at the age of fifth-three, all the more tragic.

Climbing Up the Rough Side of the Mountain Book Review:

Hundreds of people first attended the first West Indian Carnival held at Seymour Hall, London, in 1959. In this book you will meet some of those pioneers and share closely in their struggle to found a new life. This is, in particular, the autobiography of one of those young men. Although Sam King seems destined to grow up a farmer on the banana plantations of Jamaica, his social and intellectual interests seek a different fulfilment. In Britain, after serving with the RAF during the war, he discovers his political vocation, becoming the first black mayor of the London Borough of Southwark, while around him his friends and colleagues are establishing the community that has become such a central part of modern Britain. More than just the story of the meeting of the fortunes of one man and two nations, this is an exploration of personal and cultural history and of belonging - a gracious and revealing account of determination, honesty and faith, of achievement, experience and of the importance of preserving memories for posterity .."....In Climbing Up the Rough Side of the Mountain, Sam King, co-founder of the charitable Windrush Foundation, recalls life on board: the trepidation in the eyes of his countrymen (and eight women) who paid #28/10s (#28.50) to make the voyage, how they lived and slept side-by-side, forced down meals of mashed-potato, and pulled up thier zoot suit collars to fend off the sea breezes."

Fit Soul Book Review:

Do you sometimes feel that no matter how much wealth you accumulate, toys you own, friendships you make or physical and mental mountains you conquer, you're still at the end of the day unfulfilled - with a gnawing deep down inside that something is "still missing" or that you're meant for something greater than what you're doing right now? You're not alone. That loss of direction, purpose and deep, fulfilling meaning is absent in the lives of some of the most successful or fit people you'll ever meet.Over the past several years, as Ben has repeatedly witnessed in both himself and others the ultimate unfulfillment of a sole focus upon carnal, fleshly pursuits, and as he's observed great thinkers and philosophers while continually seeking wisdom, he's become increasingly convinced that caring for one's spirit is as important-no, actually far more important-than caring for one's body and brain. But after your muscles have atrophied, your skin has sagged, your brain has degraded and accumulated with plaque, your blood vessels have become clogged, and your nerves have become weakened-long after your relentless pursuit of fitness or health or longevity has become a vain effort-your spirit can be just as strong and as bright as ever. How about you? Have you gained the world yet left your soul behind? Do you feel like that most important part of you - your soul - is shrunken, neglected and unfit? Do you crave for more meaning, purpose and fulfillment in your life? Then this book - Fit Soul - was written exactly for you. Within the pages - written in a practical, easy-to-understand way with tips, tricks, strategies and solutions that will be simple to implement within your own life - you'll discover everything you need to know to care for your soul, attain true spiritual fitness, discover union with God and find the happiness you have always craved for and deserve.
