Asphalt Asylum: The Dark Roads to Light

by Steve Theme

Experience the charity, horrors, and wonders of hitchhiking seven thousand miles alone. As nineteen-year-old Steve Theme leaves on a hitchhiking trek, he has no destination, no timeframe, and no self-respect. A home life of abuse and addiction didn’t prevent him from being selected Scholar/Athlete of the Year as a senior in high school, but hiding one life from the other has broken him into fragments. He leaves Seattle in 1978 as a know-it-all whose hobbies are shoplifting malt liquor and despising his university classmates, and himself.

This remarkable memoir traverses a journey of doubt and growth against a backdrop of constant vulnerability and danger. Theme is a captive witness to dozens of people’s stories until, finally, he’s able to tell his own. Asphalt Asylum ca...

David Crockett

by John Abbott

A little more than a hundred years ago, a poor man, by the name of Crockett, embarked on board an emigrant-ship, in Ireland, for the New World. He was in the humblest station in life. But very little is known respecting his uneventful career excepting its tragical close. His family consisted of a wife and three or four children. Just before he sailed, or on the Atlantic passage, a son was born, to whom he gave the name of John. The family probably landed in Philadelphia, and dwelt somewhere in Pennsylvania, for a year or two, in one of those slab shanties, with which all are familiar as the abodes of the poorest class of Irish emigrants.After a year or two, Crockett, with his little family, crossed the almost pathless Alleghanies. Father, mother, and children trudged along through the rugg...

Rescue the Captors 2: Faith Can Move Mountains

by Russell M. Stendal

Can two arch-enemies reconcile? One man found they can if someone will demonstrate grace, mercy, and faith. Rescue the Captors II follows on the heels of Russell’s first book, Rescue the Captors I which was written to his captors while they held him hostage for five months in the jungle of Columbia. Who feels like showing love to angry guerrillas holding him hostage, threatening his life, and demanding magnificent sums of money? Russell did just that as God showed him that he was actually no better than those thugs. He needed to offer them the same Hope Christ would have. Showing love during a hostile hostage situation threw open doors of ministry to rebel Colombian guerrillas and paramilitary. Russell's missionary work persuaded these opposing forces to reconcile their differences, fo...

Crumpet All The Way

by Patsy Manning

He bet me he would travel the world, which he did, and he wrote a book on his journey and life called 'Crumpet all the Way' - Reg Kray
Dedication to Patsy Manning by: REGGIE KRAY

I first met Patsy Manning about 30 years ago outside my billiard hall in the Mile End Road.
We have been friends ever since. He is a lovable character and is a present day Errol Flynn, full of adventure and a yearning for the ladies, and he has had plenty of both.
He was a bit of a rogue and turned to crooked ways out of adventure. But I urged him to go straight and he bet me he would travel the world, which he did, and he wrote a book on his journey and life called "Crumpet all the Way".
I’m sure the reader will become firm friends with Patsy just as I did. How can one no...

The Mighty Pies and My Mighty Dad: A Collingwood Love Story 1953

by Peter le Breton PhD

Peter loved the Magpies—so named because of their black and white jumpers. Every Saturday afternoon during the footy season he was glued to the radio, hanging on every word of the commentators. If Collingwood lost, he was in tears. On the day of this story, when the Pies were in front approaching three-quarter time, and his Dad spontaneously called him to jump in the car so that he could catch the last quarter at the ground. He was in the car faster than a Thorald Merrett stab-pass. But this story is less about Collingwood and footy, than it is about the author’s relationship with his Dad, and the inspiration he gained as a boy from his sporting heroes. Peter learned anything is possible with enough preparation, will and grit. Or at least much more is possible than we believe, for we...
