Ship Ablaze: The Tragedy of the Steamboat General Slocum
Blazing example of negligence
Prior to September 11, 2001, the burning of the General Slocum was New York City's worst disaster in terms of casualty rate. An estimated 1300 Lower East Side residents, most of them members of St. Mark's Lutheran parish, boarded the steamer on the morning of June 15, 1904 for the annual church picnic at Eatons Neck, Long Island. Barely two hours later, a blaze broke out in a storage compartment, ...
MY UTMOST - UPDATED GRADUATE EDITION
Discovery House Publishers, 2006
Don't Leave Home Without It.
What can I say? Life is not the same "in Christ" without reviewing "My Utmost For His Highest" devotional. It never gets old. I have read it everyday for over 10 years and it is "new" like THE WORD every time I read it. It is a very easy step to take daily to "let this mind be in you which is in Christ Jesus". Oswald will always point you back to Christ in everyday life.

Excellent book for teaching the Oregon Trail journey! I have used this book for 4 years to teach about hardships pioneers faced while traveling west on the Oregon Trail. It gives a realistic view of life on the trail, from joys to the lose of life.
Inspired: How To Create Products Customers Love
SVPG Press, 2008
When reading Mr. Cagan's book, it's sometimes easy to think "Well, of course that makes sense. I've heard that sort of thing before." But then you realize how few companies out there handle product discovery in such an effective manner, and that Mr. Cagan's book is really the first complete and convincing blueprint for PMs who want to fix that. Highly recommended.

Titanic: An Illustrated History
This was a Christmas gift for my 9 year old grandson. He loved it! It's reported to me it is read often and at times he falls asleep after reading it at bedtime. This choice was a shot in the dark but worked out wonderfully.
The Last Days of the Incas
Simon & Schuster
I absolutely loved this book. Historically accurate and very interesting. I recommend this book even for people who are only slightly interested in the story of the Incas. Once you are done reading this book, you'll be wishing for a follow up book.

30 reviews, 2009
Being a big fan of Jean Stratton Porter's novels, I knew I would probably enjoy her daughter's novels as well. And boy did I! It is a quick and easy read finished in less than two days. Just David is about a 10-year old boy who had been raised "differently" in isolation with his father on top of a mountain. They lived simply and fully until his father's illness forced them back to ...

The Arctic Grail: The Quest for the North West Passage and the North Pole 1818-1909 (First Edtiion)
McClelland & Stewart
A Lucky Find
My husband was cleaning out one of our closets last week and came across this book. I can't remember buying it, but I'm so glad I did...it's my new 'desert island book'. To be read, re-read and savored every time. The subject is fascinating and the way the author weaves together the explorers journeys, various other personalities and the history of the day makes it seem like you were (almost) ...
One River: Science, Adventure and Hallucinogenics in the Amazon Basin
Simon & Schuster Ltd
A tribute to Davis for One River!
Edifiying and entertaining. Davis has made a signficant contribution to our understanding of the heroics of botanists in the Amason basin and a fitting memorial to the lives of both Evan Schultes and Tim Ploughman. He brings the dispassionate eye of a scientist to certain historical and social events of the area as he weaves the field notes of several generations botanical explorers. Davis is cut ...
Seeds of Hope: The Gold Rush Diary of Susanna Fairchild, California Territory 1849 (Dear America Series)
Seeds of Hope / 0-590-51157-2 Another wonderful addition to the Dear America books. I continue to be surprised at how fascinating and readable these books are for adults, even as I review them for children. The Good: Once again, the Dear America formula has rendered complex and difficult history into an entertaining and personal portrayal. When Susanna's mother dies en route to Oregon, her ...
South Mountain Books, 2004
How did I miss this one all these years?
I am a Apollo buff in many ways. I have two full shelves of books on the Apollo era and the first thing I do at the bookstore is look for some new book on the subject. I think this book was out of print for a while, so that may explain things, but it is quite "fresh" in covering issues and subjects I have read about many times. There are accounts and quotes here I have not seen anywhere else. I ...
Wrapped In Blue: A Journey of Discovery
Living Legacy Press
A Hearts Desire Fulfilled
I learned a very great deal from the book, by Donna Rose, titled "Wrapped In Blue." Being as I am TG myself I realized that there are others who suffer this same affliction besides myself. But most of all, the most important lessen of all that I learned from Donna Rose's book was that I could stop my self hatred, (to a very large degree), and finally understand that this is the way that I was. I ...
Metal Craft Discovery Workshop
North Light Books
Now this is recycling!
What a joy! If you can follow well organized (with lots of photos!) instructions written as if you were talking over the fence, this is the book for you. It is not only very instructional but more so inspirational. From tools to image transferring with all the step by step instruction without "selling" unnecessary stuff that will set in the workshop unused, this is a wonderful source. Read it ...
Leading at the Edge : Leadership Lessons from the Extraordinary Saga of Shackleton's Antarctic Expedition
Dennis N. T. Perkins
Margaret P. Holtman
Leadership lessons from the concrete example of Shackleton's Antartic expedition. So well done. Most impressive to me is how Perkins takes modern day examples that blend in seamlessly with the historical and the philosophical. Not just for leaders, this book can be edifying for everyone. Lean writing, never boring.
