A Soft Place to Land: A Novel
Susan Rebecca White
I loved this book! The writing is so descriptive that it really draws you in. I found myself so involved with the characters that I missed them when it was over. I definitely recommend this book!
Stranger in a Strange Land
Robert A. Heinlein
This is the book you you should read when you are 13 instead of Catcher In The Rye.
Learning a New Land: Immigrant Students in American Society
Marcelo M. Suárez-Orozco
Belknap Press of Harvard University Press
A comprehensive, easy-to-read breakdown of an important longitudinal study on immigrant youth
Suarez-Orozco et. al set out with a distinct goal for the Longitudinal Immigration Student Adaptation study, and they met this goal through a robust, mixed-methodologies study of recently arrived immigrant students in the United States. The mix of ethnographic, psychological, and educational metrics used are artfully described in the introduction, contextualizing the resultant data in meaningful ...

I chose a used book in "like new" conditions. It arrived on time and as described.
Into the Silent Land: A Guide to the Christian Practice of Contemplation
Oxford University Press, USA
A Wise and Wonderful Introduction to Contemplative Meditation
Of all the books I've read on this subject, this would be the first I'd recommend to anyone interested in contemplative meditation/prayer. Many other helpful books can be found in Laird's footnotes. My favorites are "The Cloud of Unknowing" by an anonymous 14th century Christian monk and the "Art of Prayer" edited by Igumen Chariton. But this small book speaks directly to the modern practitioner ...
Ill Fares the Land
Penguin Press HC, The
Ill Fares the Land
This is a great book that all Americans,especially those people who consider themselves to be conservatives and/or libertarians, should read. I cannot recommend it too highly. With respect to customer service, the book arrived as promised and in the condition described by the seller.
The Distant Land of My Father (Harvest Book)
Rich and Textured
This story is so rich and textured I knew it had to be a labor of love. I was riveted to it in every spare moment for two days so I didn't take the time to check out the author. After I finished, in a quick internet search I found that Joseph Schoene is loosely based on the author's uncle. Her grandparents were missionaries and her mother's brother loved Shanghai. The book was too intimate and ...
The Burning Land: A Novel (Saxon Tales)
Uhtred's Back in All His Glory
In The Burning Land, the fifth book of Bernard Cornwell's Saxon Tales saga, our hero Uhtred of Bebbanburg is back with his mighty sword Serpent-Breath, his dagger Wasp-Sting, and all the arrogance and bravado one man can exude as he fulfills his oath of allegiance to King Alfred the Great. But the arrangement that binds Uhtred to Alfred has begun to chafe, and when the presence of the Christian ...
How to Land a Top-Paying Federal Job: Your Complete Guide to Opportunities, Internships, Resumes and Cover ...
I really like the insights into the Federal hiring process provided by this book. Since the author is a full-time Federal hiring manager, I find her information refreshing, helpful and enlightening. She provides a "real world" perspective about what to do and what to expect. Although she gives a high level view of how to write a Federal resume, her example resumes are a very good guide to follow. ...
A Land Remembered
Patrick D. Smith
A trip back in time
I have read this book 3 times and will read it again I am sure. After reading this book, as I travel through Florida, I see it with new eyes, imagining the way the land might have looked and the people who might have lived here. It is a very readable book, describing life throughout the settlement of Florida through more modern times. The story tells of a family through generations and the ...
Idiot America: How Stupidity Became a Virtue in the Land of the Free
Charles P. Pierce
Bravo! A superb book and great read.
The religious Right in America is a very serious blight upon our country. This book informs and entertains. Hopefully is will act as an anti-fungal to destroy some mental blight. Young people need to read this book. Bravo!!!!!! here's a first hand story I found very insightful about a young man growing up in American ignorance and stupidity and how he broke out of it; "JUSTIFIABLE HOMICIDE?" ...

Land of Mango Sunsets
Dorothea Benton Frank
Ms Frank Does it Again
The last book I read penned by Ms Frank was Bulls Island and I didn't think she could top that. But then I picked up Land of Mango Sunsets and was proven wrong. Top it she did. This is a once started, can't put it down book. The content has been discussed in previous reviews, I'm writing to say simply that it was a wonderful read! The characters are...well, they make you wish for a ...
Promised Land (A Spenser Novel)
Robert B. Parker
FOURTH AND IMPORTANT SPENSER NOVEL
This book PROMISED LAND is the fourth book in the series and I always recommend reading them in order, get THE GODWWULF MANUSCRIPT and enjoy. The Spenser series is classic and timeless. This book finds Spenser hired to find a wife that ran away while her husband has troubles she isn't even aware of. The book waxes a little poetic once in awhile but we get an insight in Spenser and his ...
The Night Land
William Hope Hodgson
General Books LLC
DON'T LET THE LANGUAGE SCARE YOU AWAY!!!
William Hope Hodgson's epic novel "The Night Land" was chosen for inclusion in Cawthorn & Moorcock's "Fantasy: The 100 Best Books," and yet in this overview volume's sister collection, "Horror: 100 Best Books," Jones & Newman surprisingly declare the novel to be "unreadable." No less a critic than H.P. Lovecraft pronounced "The Night Land" to be "one of the most potent pieces of macabre ...
The Waste Lands (The Dark Tower, Book 3)
Stephen King Tower Series #3
I loved the book! It is the continuing saga of the tower series and if you're like me, you can't skip from one to 3 without reading two.
Jesus and the Land: The New Testament Challenge to "Holy Land" Theology
Gary M. Burge
Burge's latest book on land theology and its political consequences is thoroughly exegetical and, IMO, utterly convincing. He demonstrates sound biblical theology, interpreting the OT promises in light of what the NT writers and Jesus say about them. The chapters on John's gospel and Paul's letters are worth the price of the book easily. The only drawback here may be that the discussion gets a ...
Jesus Land: A Memoir
Harrowing! I got this book because I thought it would be amusing reading about how awful the Fundamentalists are. But instead I was really, really upset by how these kids were treated...couldn't get over it, had to go to the author's website afterwards to find out more. The writing is good, the awfulness nearly unremitting. I was in love with David from the first I read about him and stayed that ...

Changes in the Land, Revised Edition: Indians, Colonists, and the Ecology of New England
Hill and Wang
Changes in the Land
This is a fascinating look at how early New England colonists and Indians differed in their notions of land rights and use, and in notions of an object's or animal's value; of how trade relations between Indians and both colonists and European traders affected the Indian's notions of use and value, and thus of lifestyle and need; and of how in consequence over the course of time, the ...
