An Amazon Charts and Washington Post bestseller. "A relevant, compelling, and compassionate look at the torture of conflicted loyalties and the slipperiness of truth." --Jenna Blum, New York Times bestselling author of Those Who Save Us and The Lost Family In this evocative debut novel, Katrin Schumann weaves a riveting story of past and present--and how love can lead us astray. At twenty-four, Katie Gregory feels like life is looking up: she's snagged a great job in New York City and is falling for a captivating artist--and memories of her traumatic past are finally fading. Katie's life fell apart almost a decade earlier, during an idyllic summer at her family's cabin on Eagle Lake when her best friend accused her father of sexual assault. Throughout his trial and imprisonment, Katie insisted on his innocence, dodging reporters and clinging to memories of the man she adores. Now he's getting out. Yet when Katie returns to the shuttered lakeside cabin, details of that fateful night resurface: the chill of the lake, the heat of first love, the terrible sting of jealousy. And as old memories collide with new realities, they call into question everything she thinks she knows about family, friends, and, ultimately, herself. Now, Katie's choices will be put to the test with life-altering consequences.

August 29, 2005, was the day that Mother Nature decided to once again "slam dunk" the Gulf Coast as she sent Hurricane Katrina careening into basically the same area that Hurricane Camille hit in 1969. This book describes the events as Katrina roared into Diamondhead, Mississippi, a 35-year-old retirement community of 8,000 residents that sits on the top of the Bay of St. Louis, five miles north of the Gulf of Mexico. Diamondhead is located just to the right of where the eye of the storm hit. The book also touches on the devastation of surrounding towns such as the Kiln, Waveland and Bay St. Louis and more. (Title) is a gripping portrait of a small community, convinced that water would never come over Interstate Highway 10 (I-0) and reach its streets. Diamondhead was thrown into chaos as the fury of Katrina sent tornadoes and floodwaters of up to thirty feet of water into its streets and homes. The national media failed to consider this community as hard hit by Katrina although some 500 homes were uninhabitable following the storm. First-hand, personal and bizarre survival stories of real people, many who stayed for the storm, are revealed as they remember that terrifying day. These detailed anecdotes are accompanied by dozens of photos. This is the story of a community that was left to rely on its wits, ingenuity, generosity and neighbors in order to return their lives to normalcy. It is definitely a book for armchair storm chasers.
Though his writings are not spoken of as frequently as they once were, William G. Sumner was a prominent voice in the laissez-faire economic and social philosophies of the late 19th century. This 1919 volume collects some of his most significant essays and lectures, including: . "Protectionism, the -Ism which Teaches that Waste Makes Wealth" (1885) . "What is Free Trade?" (1886) . "Prosperity Strangled by Gold" (1896) . "The Delusion of the Debtors" (1896) . "The Philosophy of Strikes" (1883) . "Trusts and Trade-Unions" (1888) . "Shall Americans Own Ships?" (1881) . "The Science of Sociology" (1882) . and others. Students of modern politics continue to find fascinating parallels-and intriguing disconnects-with 21st-century realities in Sumner's work. American academic and author WILLIAM GRAHAM SUMNER (1840-1910) was an influential professor of sociology and politics at Yale College and president of the American Sociological Association from 1908 to 1909. He wrote numerous and varied books including Andrew Jackson as a Public Man (1882), What Social Classes Owe to Each Other (1883), and Folkways (1906).

In order to survive, he must face his most dangerous adversary yet.
Not a pretty sight. Certainly not one the authorities on Mauritius, that gem of a tourist destination in a trio of idyllic islands once known as the Mascarenes, would like to become public knowledge. Their carefully nurtured image was of sparkling blue sea, emerald green palm fringes haphazardly angled along pure white beaches, gentle winds whispering through the casuarinas under an azure sky. This was ugly, messy. When journalist Holly Jones arrives in Mauritius to cover millionaire adventurer Connor Maguire's search for buried ancestral treasure, it promises to be two weeks in an exotic island paradise ... and a chance to start piecing together a broken heart. What she hasn't planned on is an infuriating, reluctant subject with a hidden agenda. Or one who manages to break down her carefully constructed barriers and awaken long-forgotten desires. After the body of a young woman is washed up on a beach, Holly finds herself embroiled in an unsolved murder case and the idyllic island's darkest secrets. Passionate, intriguing and compelling, The Forgotten Sea is Beverley Harper at her best yet.
Born too gifted, losing his home life too young, the flavor gone from living. Gradually drowning in himself and his thoughts, a silent madness and deconstruction of life and the thoughts of his own mind inevitably continues, progressing to its natural conclusion. His only company one whose obsession with him threatens to devolve her life into the same train of thought nothingness. An existential love story drags painfully towards the inevitable as life and language break into increasingly meaningless nameless pieces.
North of Jasper, in the Canadian Rockies, is a large, roadless and spectacular wilderness of alpine flower meadows, glaciated peaks, canyons, waterfalls and abundant wildlife. Compared to the millions each year who visit Banff and Jasper national parks immediately to the south, this northern area sees few visitors. Fewer still have ever attempted to travel through this wilderness in one continuous trip. The first to do so was Samuel Prescott Fay in 1914. To this day, his exact route has never been duplicated. Fay and his party set out from Jasper on June 26, 1914, with five saddle horses and 16 pack horses. After a treacherous, slogging journey of 1,200 kilometres through wild, uncharted country they reached their destination on October 15, 1914, with the outfit completely intact. During his expedition, Fay kept a detailed journal (currently held at the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC), which he provided to the US Biological Survey (now known as the US Fish & Wildlife Service) and to various Canadian government authorities. He also published several magazine articles about his discoveries. However, the journal in its entirety, with all his day-to-day observations, struggles and concerns, has never been published. Similarly, his maps, photographs and wildlife records have been preserved in various Canadian and US archives but never exhibited to a wider audience. Brought together for the first time in book form, they provide an early and dynamic record of an area that remains little known to this day. Complete with a large selection of never-before published photos and maps, The Forgotten Explorer is destined to become a classic of North American exploration history.
