People of the Thunder (North America's Forgotten Past)
W. Michael Gear
Kathleen O'Neal Gear
Long Wait Justified
I have every single book from their Native American series. I am so glad that they made this particular story into two parts. The plot is rich, full and intricate. Each of the characters is interesting and well developed. The social interactions among the groups is interesting and believable. And the authors' love of the environment is there throughout the book. After reading People of the ...
Blood and Thunder: The Epic Story of Kit Carson and the Conquest of the American West
An Educational Thrill Ride !!!
I bought this book to learn a little about the life of Kit Carson. I never dreamed it would be such a fascinating learning experience about how the west was tamed, the topography was mapped with the leadership of John Fremont and also how the United States gained control of California and Mexico. This is a gripping and quite frank telling of some amazing history. If they had taught me this ...
A Gentle Thunder: Hearing God Through the Storm (The Bestseller Collection)
A Thunderous Ovation for Lucado
Max Lucado has written a devotional masterpiece that can attract the attention of any philosopher who is searching for the meaning of life or give insight to any clergyman who is in search of material that can supplement his or her preparation for a thought-provoking sermon. I am generally wary of those who attempt to use individual biblical quotes to postulate their personal opinions and then ...
Stealing God's Thunder: Benjamin Franklin's Lightning Rod and the Invention of America
Random House Trade Paperbacks
Benjamin Franklin, the scientist
Stealing God's Thunder by Philip Dray is extremely well-written. Unlike many biographies of Franklin, it focuses on his science first and his role as a founding father second. This way of characterizing Franklin's life was more interesting than writing about him as a politician first and scientist second. What is most interesting is the influence that Franklin's science had on his politics and ...

A tale of aviation courage that has to be read to be believed
The battle of Midway was one of the pivotal battles in the Pacific Theater of World War II, a true turning point in the war between the United States and the Japanese Empire. However, that turning point would have come to naught if it wasn't for the steadfastness of US troops and military servicemen during the invasion of Guadalcanal two months later. If that invasion had failed and the troops ...

Mildred D. Taylor, author of this Newbery Award-winning book, grew up with a master storyteller for a father. From him she learned the history of her African-American family: "A history of great-grandparents and of slavery and of the days following slavery; of those who lived still not free, yet who would not let their spirits be enslaved." This middle school book and her other many books are ...

A Great Book, Vivid and Entertaining
This book is a really great read. Ed Rasimus takes the combat memoir to a new level of realism and feeling with both this book, and his other, later memoir, "Palace Cobra". In "When Thunder Rolled", the author goes from flight training to nervous newbie in a few chapters, and then describes his experiences for the rest of the book as he learns and grows with his squadmates in the air war. He ...

Hyperion Book CH
One of my favorites
I met the author, Roland Smith, when he visited my elementary school years ago, and he made such an impact on me that I have never forgotten him or this book. I have re-read it at least half a dozen times, and the imagery and fantastic plot and message make this one of my all-time favorite books from my childhood. The great thing is that he really knows his stuff- he's worked with animals for ...

Thunder at Twilight: Vienna 1913/1914
Da Capo Press
Von Berchtold's War
Stalin, Lenin, Hitler, Freud, Jung--everyone knows the names, but who were these people and what did they all have in common? How did Vienna link them all? And then there are the names that are not on the tip of one's tongue--Count Leopold von Berchtold, Gavrilo Princip, Trifko Grabez, Nedeljko Cabrinivic. Who in the world were these people and how did their actions lead the world into The ...
This wild and crazy thunder boomer brought this little country family something very special! "ZZZZT! ZZZZT! Cr-a-a-ck!
The heat was giving everyone that "I don't want to do anything" feeling. Even Scooter just lay on the ground "with his tongue hanging out . . . huh, huh, huh." Dad plowed the field while Mother fanned herself with her hat, Tom dipped his toes in the pond and his sister sprawled under a tree dreamily looking up at the sky. Mother ("swish, swish, swish") declared, "We need a thunder-boomer." ...
Thunder and Ashes (The Morningstar Strain) (Pt.2)
The Zombie Series
Thunder and Ashes is part 2 in the Morningstar Strain Saga. I have read both books and couldn't put them down. When finishing one I was anxious to begin the next. If you are into Zombie fiction and haven't read this book then buy it. You will not be disappointed.
St. Martin's Press
I was very surprised when I found out this book was written by mother and son. It a powerful story about family. The historical part of the book is well researched. It made me laugh and cry. I think it would make a good movie. I love Iris Johanson's books and can not reccommend this book too strongly. A GREAT READ!!!
The Sound of Thunder
St. Martin's Paperbacks
Simply the best
I read a lot and came across Wilbur Smith when my next door neighbor kept speaking of him. My ideas of African adventure were far removed from what Smith writes about. If you like DeMille, Flynn, Shaara, and the like you will love Smith. The back cover of his books says it the best. "Wilbur Smith is one of those benchmarks against whom others are compared." Just make sure you read these in ...
