The Invention of Clouds: How an Amateur Meteorologist Forged the Language of the Skies
The Man Who Named the Clouds
"The Invention of Clouds" is an endearing little book about a generally forgotten moment in the history of science. It seems obvious to us today but until Englishman Luke Howard, a chemist with an interest in the then-young science of meteorology, gave a public lecture on cloud classification in London in 1802, nobody had been able to categorize cloud formations in an easily-understood and ...
Coyote Warrior: One Man, Three Tribes, and the Trial that Forged a Nation
An exceptional introduction to Indian legal rights and more
I have published an award-winning law review article on Federal Indian Law, worked for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (until I couldn't hold my nose any longer), and had the great good luck to learn Indian Law from Prof. Raymond Cross at The University of Montana School of Law. But Paul VanDevelder taught me new things about all three. Mr. VanDevelder deftly explains some of the more arcane ...
The Only Thing Worth Dying For: How Eleven Green Berets Forged a New Afghanistan
The Only Thing Worth Dying For
If you have ever wondered about the "hype" afforded to "Green Berets" this book is a must read! Having served in Special Forces back in the days when officers and enlisted soldiers were "qualified" separately, I have often wondered if there truly has been a change in the training programs. Reading this book, I found the current training program is apparently not only the same, but there ...
Founding Character: The Words & Documents That Forged a Nation
Roan Alder Publishers
Founding Character: The Words and Documents that Forged a Nation opened my eyes to the whole picture of our origins. First, I hadn't read the Declaration of Independence nor the Constitution since college. And, the original draft of the Declaration by Jefferson? It was never mentioned in high school or college, so I missed its relevance altogether! Then there is the Treaty of Paris which I know ...
Made in Hungary: A Life Forged by History
Donner Publishing, LLC
Don't start this if you have something to do in a few minutes!
Don't start this book if you have something else to do in a few minutes. That's what I did. I brought the book home and figured I'd read a little before my exercise class. But I missed that class, and sat entranced for the next couple of hours while I read about young Maria's first year of life, with bombs dropping around her and her mother shielding her young body with her own. It's the ...

Forged By Lightning: A Novel of Hannibal and Scipio
History with a heart
This novel is truly a pleasure to read, I read it cover to cover in an afternoon,I was never a true history fan, but gave it a chance. I must say, it read so much like a good novel that I had to do some research to make sure it wasn't all fiction. Yet it is certainly very historically accurate and the way she draws the characters is very endearing to the reader. I definitely recommend this ...
Forged In Battle
Simon Schuster Trade
Must read history!
This is one of the most important books on the Civil War that needs to be read by every student of the war. When published in 1989, Forged introduced the United States Colored Troops to the general reading public. While books that are more detailed would follow, notably "Like Men of War" in 1998, this remains the best introduction to the USCT published. This is a very readable and informative ...

Forged by the Knife: The Experience of Surgical Residency from the Perspective of a Woman of Color
Patricia L. Dawson
Open Hand Pub.
This book is a great look into the experiences black women have as the vast minority in surgical residency. It is very well written and is full of rich writing and emotion. There is no parallel, especially as it is a topic that is not widely known about. This is a great book.
