In The Rearview Mirror

by Lee Livingston and David Ensz

Not so long ago, two carefree 18-year-olds hitchhiked across a country of wide-open highways and wide-open people. Ride with them on this nostalgic look back at "America of the Big Heart." It was 1961, before the deaths of JFK and MLK, before Vietnam. IndieReader calls their adventure out of adolescence into the beginning of responsibility: "A must read not only for the baby boomer generation, but great commentary on friendship, mental illness and, ultimately, the road towards redemption."...

Drake: England's Greatest Seafarer

by Ernle Bradford

Sir Frances Drake to Queen Elizabeth:“Your Majesty shall stand assured, if the fleet comes out of Lisbon, as long as we have victual to live upon that coast, with God’s assistance, they shall be fought with … The advantage of time and place in all martial actions is half a victory; which being lost is irrevocable.”The life of Sir Francis Drake reads like a piece of improbable fiction. He was the first Englishman to circumnavigate the globe, was the plunderer of the Spanish gold fleet, was knighted by Queen Elizabeth aboard his ship The Golden Hind, and was largely responsible for the destruction of the Spanish Armada in 1588. He is an extraordinary example of a self-made man, a navigator of astonishing brilliance, a gen-uis at naval warfare and an outstanding leader of men. He was ...

The People's Champ: 50 Muhammad Ali Quotes

by Kim Burke

Muhammad Ali (1942-2016) was an American former heavyweight champion boxer and one of the greatest sporting figures of the 20th century. An Olympic gold medalist and the first fighter to capture the heavyweight title three times, Ali won 56 times in his 21-year professional career. Ali’s outspokenness on issues of race, religion and politics made him a controversial figure during his career, and the heavyweight’s quips and taunts were as quick as his fists. Born Cassius Clay Jr., Ali changed his name in 1964 after joining the Nation of Islam. Citing his religious beliefs, he refused military induction and was stripped of his heavyweight championship and banned from boxing for three years during the prime of his career. Parkinson’s syndrome severely impaired Ali’s motor skills and s...

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...

INDIA ADVENTURE STORIES VOLUME ONE

Man-eater is a common term for an animal that preys upon humans. This does not include scavenging. Although human beings can be attacked by many kinds of animals, man-eaters are those that have incorporated human flesh into their usual diet. Most reported cases of man-eaters have involved tigers, leopards, lions and crocodiles. However, they are by no means the only predators that will attack humans if given the chance; a wide variety of species have also been known to take humans as prey.

1914

by John French

For a memoir of World War I, Sir John French's book 1914, does a fairly good job of recounting the facts, however skewed they may be. French, whose full name and titles are quite daunting, was Field Marshal John Denton Pinkstone French, 1st Earl of Ypres KP, GCB, OM, GCVO, KCMG, ADC, PC (1852 – 1925). He was Commader-in-Chief of the BEF (British Expeditionary Forces) against the Germain advances through Continental Europe. French, who was stubborn and hotheaded, ordered maneuvers which weren't the best course of action, for which he was eventually switched out for another commander. Though he was the obvious choice for Commander-in-Chief at the time, French was fighting a 20th century war with a 19th century mindset. Images of him at the time portray him mounted on horseback, a billowin...
