Mu Xin: The Literary Odyssey

by Joanne Wang

Mu Xin (1927-2011) is the pen name of a renowned Chinese writer and artist. Born in Wuzhen, near Shanghai, China, into a wealthy aristocratic family, Mu Xin was among those in the last generation to receive a classical education in the literati tradition, while at the same time he was also exposed through voluminous reading to the highest achievements of Western art and culture at a very young age. From 1947 to 1949, Mu Xin attended Shanghai Institute of the Arts. From 1949 to 1982, Mu Xin lived in China. Although he wrote profusely in that period, all of his earlier manuscripts were confiscated and destroyed during the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976). In 1982 after coming to live in the US, Mu Xin began to publish books of short stories, prose, and poetry (in Chinese) and contributed regu...

This eBook has been formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices. The Mountains of California is Muir's tribute to the beauties of the Sierra. When he came to California and finally settled in San Francisco, John Muir immediately left for a visit to Yosemite, a place he had only read about. Seeing it for the first time, Muir noted that "He was overwhelmed by the landscape, scrambling down steep cliff faces to get a closer look at the waterfalls, whooping and howling at the vistas, jumping tirelessly from flower to flower." He climbed a number of mountains, including Cathedral Peak and Mount Dana, and hiked the old Indian trail down Bloody Canyon to Mono Lake. He vividly described not only his journeys through the mountains, valleys and glaciers of ...

With the killer showing no signs of stopping his brutal rampage, the police finally get their first clue when they are able to ascertain that their man goes by the name of "Ted". None suspect though that the young, handsome and charismatic Ted Bundy could possibly be the person responsible for the murders though.

Albert Einstein: Extraordinary Life Lessons That Will Change Your Life Forever (Inspirational Books)

by Jamie Cooper

*** Limited time offer ***


Unfortunately, you’ve fallen victim to the biggest lie out there: that creating a life of dreams is hard and nearly impossible. It’s nearly impossible because without the right connections, a good early education, and financial wealth to back you up, you might as well sit on the sidelines and fold your arms. When you have nothing going for you, when you have obligations to care of, shackling you to the ground (money doesn’t grow on trees), you might not even see the point in even starting, because creating a life of dreams must surely be for the 1%.

If you think creating a life desired is costly, you are right. It’s not easy. It requires dedication, a willingness to give up short-term satisfaction, and that means being pr...

Roller Skating in a Buffalo Herd

“You can’t roller skate in a buffalo herd,” sang a famous balladeer many years ago.But I did, and happily, for many years. Here is a window on my adventure in special education, replete with horror stories of shattered kids, parents from hell, overwhelmed colleagues, lessons learned backwards, and freezing classrooms teeming with wildlife, both animal and human. You will probably laugh and you might cry, as I did. Included are my worst mistakes and what I learned from them. All is bathed in the local color of Pinkerton Academy, some 3300 students strong, arguably the most beautiful high school in New England. My story entertains, informs, and infuses the high calling of teaching with the dignity it deserves....

Behind the Scenes : Or, Thirty Years a Slave and Four Years in the White House

by Elizabeth Keckley

Elizabeth Keckley’s Behind the Scenes: Or, Thirty Years a Slave and Four Years in the White House is both a riveting slave narrative and a fascinating insider’s look at the First Family during the Lincoln administration. Keckley was the First Lady’s seamstress and confidante and the publication of her memoirs in 1868 caused a storm of controversy. The press excoriated Keckley for revealing the intimate secrets of her employers and Mary Todd Lincoln cut off her friendship with Keckley. Lincoln’s eldest son had the book suppressed. After the White House, Keckley went on to become one of the first successful independent black business owners in America, forming a profitable line in dress-making for the wives of prominent politicians, including the spouses of Robert E. Lee and Jefferso...

Billy, Eric & Adolf: One War, Two Brothers (MERSEYSIDE TALES OF WAR Book 1)

by Chris Whitfield

In January 1941 with the Liverpool Blitz at its height, twelve-year-old Billy Whitfield was evacuated to live on a farm without running water or electricity in the rural town of Bridgnorth, Shropshire, an event that was to shape him for the rest of his life. In the same year, his elder brother Eric volunteered to join the RAF, subsequently serving as a flight engineer in Bomber Command, the most dangerous of the Allied Services.

Based on the true story of these two brothers and their contrasting experiences during the Second World War, Billy, Eric & Adolf is a tale of courage, innocence and love, a poignant, funny and moving account of ordinary lives impacted by extraordinary times.

Computer Curious: Stories and lessons from the dawn of the digital age in africa

by Marc Maxmeister

Back in the early 2000s, before Facebook existed, before Google was a verb, African youths were flocking to the Internet. I trekked across Gambia, Senegal, and Ghana in search of what drew them to the Internet. After visits to 30 schools and hundreds of Interviews, I discovered that curiosity and a drive to create in a culture where education stifles creativity was the deeper reason behind the allure of the Internet.

In this book I focus on why and how computer culture evolved in Africa, and wrap it in my own adventures of exotic discomfort on the open road, ill-conceived conceits to bring Internet to remote villages, rocket yams in the name of science, wandering through a refugee camp to deliver a letter, hobnobbing with power mongers in the capitol, and generally seeing how ...
