Searching for Chipeta:The Story of a Ute and Her People Vickie Leigh Krudwig
A memoir of Tom´s journey around the world to discover the complete story of Oskar Schindler and those on his now-famous list.In 1980, Tom Keneally walked into a store in Beverly Hills owned by Polish Jew Leopold Pfefferberg Page to buy a new briefcase. For the next few years, Tom´s life was taken over by this charismatic and driven man, known as Poldek, and the story he wanted shared. The resulting book was Schindler´s Ark, which went on to win the Booker Prize and ultimately became the Oscar-award-winning film Schindler´s List.Tom and Poldek travelled across the US, Germany, Israel, Austria and Poland, interviewing survivors and discovering their extraordinary stories. Searching for Schindler is very much Tom´s journey; he reflects on his early days as a successful but less than confident writer, and how this book, the film it became and the people he met, changed his and his family´s lives forever. ungekürzt.

Still Searching for Pipe Dreams is the second in a series following Rick Newcombe´s first book, the best-selling In Search of Pipe Dreams. Why would anyone still smoke a pipe in the 21st century when all forms of smoking are being banned around the world? Why are so many young people drawn to pipe collecting and artistic pipemaking with such intensity and passion? And why are pipe shows suddenly sold out, with waiting lists for tables? These young pipe enthusiasts are from America, Germany, Russia, Japan, China, Italy, Denmark and all over the world. Unlike mass-marketed cigarettes, pipe smoking has a rich tradition that goes back many centuries, and the author predicts it is the only form of smoking that will last many centuries into the future. He contends that moderate pipe smoking, without inhaling, promotes relaxation and clear thinking, and it serves as an ideal antidote to stress that is much safer than the tranquilizers that are so freely dispensed today. Unlike cigar and cigarette smokers, pipe collectors actually save their pipes. They clean and polish them and put them in racks or display cabinets. If they are broken, they have them repaired. Most pipe smokers remember when they bought each pipe in their collection, and every time they take a pipe out, it is a reminder of the past, to be enjoyed in the present, for many years into the future. This book also is inspiring because of Rick Newcombe´s enthusiasm and optimism, which shine through in every chapter and make it a fast-paced and enjoyable listen. ungekürzt. Language: English.

Emily Raboteau’s Searching for Zion takes listeners around the world on an unexpected adventure of faith. Both one woman’s quest for a place to call ´´home´´ and an investigation into a people’s search for the promised land, this landmark work is a trenchant inquiry into contemporary and historical ethnic displacement. At 23, Raboteau traveled to Israel to visit her childhood best friend. While her friend appeared to have found a place to belong, Raboteau couldn’t say the same for herself. As a biracial woman from a country still divided along racial lines, she’d never felt at home in America. But as a reggae fan and the daughter of a historian of African-American religion, Raboteau knew of Zion as a place black people yearned to be. She’d heard about it on Bob Marley’s Exodus and in the speeches of Martin Luther King. She understood it as a metaphor for freedom, a spiritual realm rather than a geographical one. In Israel, the Jewish Zion, she was surprised to discover black Jews. Inspired by their exodus, Raboteau sought out other black communities that had left home in search of a promised land. Her question for them is the same she asks herself: Have you found the home you’re looking for? On her 10-year journey back in time and across the globe, through the Bush years and into the age of Obama, Raboteau wanders through Jamaica, Ethiopia, Ghana, and the Southern United States to explore the complex and contradictory perspectives of ´´black Zionists´´. She talks to Rastafarians and African Hebrew Israelites, Evangelicals and Ethiopian Jews, and Hurricane Katrina transplants from her own family - people who have risked everything in search of territory that is hard to define and harder to inhabit. In Searching for Zion, Raboteau overturns our ideas of place and patriotism, displacement and dispossession, citizenship and country in a disarmingly honest and refreshingly brave take on the pull of the st... ungekürzt.

Literary Thoughts edition presents Arctic Searching Expedition by Sir John Richardson ------ Now for the first time available as one single ebook, the Arctic Searching Expedition was originally published in 1851 by surgeon, naturalist and Arctic explorer Sir John Richardson (1787-1865) and is a journal of a boat-voyage through Ruperts Land and the Arctic Sea, in search of the discovery ships under command of Sir John Franklin. The story charts the journey which would inevitably fail in its ambition: Franklin, unknown to Richardson, had already died in June 1847. Volume 1 depicts the journey to Fort Confidence in the Canadian Arctic, ending with detailed descriptions of the aboriginal Inuit and Gwichin peoples encountered, whereas volume 2 begins with detailed descriptions of the Chipewyan and Cree peoples. All books of the Literary Thoughts edition have been transscribed from original prints and edited for better reading experience.

This story follows the life of a man from the age of three to the age of 70. It is a story of love and tragedy. It is the quest of a man searching for love. The death of his mother, when he was three years old, and the absence of his father for the first seven years of his life, sets the stage for the choices he makes throughout his life. The story begins in the late 40s, early 50s, and progresses to present day. Early in this book, scenes depict his living in a very poor environment. Fourteen people lived in a shack on the poor side of town. Good food and clothing were scarce. Oversight, discipline, and love were not part of his early life. Be patient as an old man reflects on his past, and he wonders why he chose the paths he took searching for someone to love him. The early part of this book depicts the environment that molded his character. His undisciplined youth and the puppy loves he encounters in his early years give a slightly comical, yet tender, insight into why he makes the choices he makes later in life. Just as you think you know where this story is going, it takes many twists and turns you do not expect. Tragic things happen to him along the way. He emerges from an abusive childhood to face challenges he is unprepared for. The book is based on a true story. It is unlike any story you have ever heard. ungekürzt. Language: English.

Are you getting the spiritual nourishment you need? We have all experienced times when we have not eaten a balanced diet or have eaten too many sweets. We feel sick, light-headed, and occasionally depressed, or we become irritable and edgy. It´s the body´s way of letting us know that it´s lacking sufficient nourishment. Optimal health requires optimal nutrition. The same is true spiritually speaking. Without sufficient and regular biblical nutrition, our inner life begins to suffer the consequences. We become shallow and selfish, more demanding and less gentle, and quick to react impatiently, rashly, and angrily. These are telltale signs of inner malnutrition. In Searching the Scriptures, respected Bible teacher Charles Swindoll shows us how to dig deep into Scripture and uncover its profound truths for our lives. He outlines the principles of Bible study that will help you understand God´s word, apply it, and communicate it clearly to those around you. Too many people try to go it alone, without a guide for this life and the next. Swindoll explains how we can fix our own spiritual meals and then invites us to feast on nourishing truths we can discover in God´s word. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Jim Denison.

When Stephen Bodio was a young boy in the early ´50s, he saw an image in National Geographic that became forever etched in his mind: It was a photograph of a Kazakh nomad, dressed in a long coat and wearing a fur hat, holding a huge tame eagle on his fist. And a lifelong fascination with Central Asia was born. Mongolia, a vast country located between Siberia and China and little known to outsiders, was long under Soviet domination and inaccessible to Westerners. When it became independent in 1990, Bodio began planning a pilgrimage to see if the eagle hunters of ´´The Picture´´ had survived. A lifelong falconer himself, he longed to visit the birthplace of falconry and observe the traditions that had survived intact through the ages. His fantasy was realized when he traveled independently twice to the westernmost region of Mongolia and spent months with the people and birds of his dreams. The ancient rituals of hunting with eagles are fascinating, and the remarkable relationships these nomadic people have with their birds of prey are thrilling. With vivid prose and humor, Bodio gives life to his dreams and the people, landscapes, and animals of Mongolia that have become part of his soul. ungekürzt. Language: English.
