Brookes Journey of Heart is the story of a daughter who lives each day with the disabilities delivered with her at birth and the mother who gave birth to her. Beverly Charles asked her daughter, Brooke Klemme, if she would like to write her story of living with Spina Bifida. Brooke responded, "Yes! There are two sides to every story." Brooke and Beverly show us both sides of their story in the context of faith, family, and friends. In 1971, more than 6000 American children were born with Spina Bifida, but like most people, Beverly Charles knew nothing about this condition until she gave birth to her third and last child. In this touching memoir co-authored by Charles and her daughter Brooke Klemme, we learn first-hand not only what it means, but what it feels like - to raise a disabled child, to watch her suffer and triumph, and to be that child, who now as an adult, tells her side of the story. Most parents will never have to answer this question - should your new baby live? For Brooke's mother, there was only one answer, an answer that would involve multiple surgical procedures, interminable hospital stays, and an army of doctors and therapists - an answer that would change her and her family forever. This book is a spiritual memoir and a medical one. The authors make connections with Eastern and Western religious practices that have seen them through difficult and joyous times for over four decades. Their story transcends the personal to offer hope and help to other parents who have faced the same hard question and who, like Beverly and Brooke, answer "YES." As one reader said, I loved it. I laughed, cried, got mad, got sad, and now feel like a part of your family.

Brooke's Journey is a compilation of primarily e-mail correspondences that were shared per the request of a caring church family who wanted to keep updated for prayer purposes. In time the e-mails were going to a much larger group of interested parties who wanted to stay abreast of our little premature "toe head's" struggle for survival. Eventually, people were requesting a book written about our experience. This book is a raw, unedited, account of the highs and lows of Brooke's struggle for survival, and the difficult decisions that accompany such a struggle. We remain humbled by the amount of interest Brooke's journey garnered and the number of hearts her little feet left eternal footprints on. We invite you to join us on this journey; certain her life will touch yours.

What would cause an otherwise intelligent, well-educated, and, by all accounts, privileged Californian to forgo an easy life in the United States to struggle for survival in a land of strife and mortal danger? With this question in mind, journalist Mark Kukis retraces the personal and spiritual evolution of the most reviled American traitor since Lee Harvey Oswald. My Heart Became Attached provides a detailed biographical account of John Walker LindhOCOs journey, beginning with his childhood in an affluent San Francisco suburb. Kukis then follows LindhOCOs footsteps to Yemen, where he learned Arabic and radical Islam, and on through the wild hinterlands of Pakistan and Afghanistan. The journey culminates with the violent prison uprising at Mazar-i-Sharif. While conducting research, Kukis achieved unparalleled access to major players in LindhOCOs life. In Pakistan, Kukis found the militants from the jihad group that trained with Lindh in a Pakistani camp. Kukis also conducted several rounds of interviews with LindhOCOs friend who initially settled him in an Islamic boarding school, with LindhOCOs instructor there, and with fellow pupils in the hardscrabble Pakistani village where he studied the Koran before journeying into Afghanistan. In Afghanistan, Kukis interviewed Taliban soldiers who fought at Mazar-i-Sharif and General Dostum, warlord of the region. Ex-roommates, family members, and friends all contributed to KukisOCOs research, resulting in the most thorough portrait available of the American Taliban."

And while Sophie is dismayed by the transformation, Harriet finds this thoughtful, war-weary man utterly intriguing.… Waterloo left Captain John Brookes scarred in body and mind, and Sophie's lukewarm reception only adds to his pain. In contrast, Harriet's compassion and gentle faith bring solace as they collaborate on his memoirs. Perhaps joyful new memories can be made—if the wrong sister turns out to be the right wife.

Climate Change and the Course of Global History presents the first global study by a historian to fully integrate the earth-system approach of the new climate science with the material history of humanity. Part I argues that geological, environmental, and climatic history explain the pattern and pace of biological and human evolution. Part II explores the environmental circumstances of the rise of agriculture and the state in the Early and Mid-Holocene, and presents an analysis of human health from the Paleolithic through the rise of the state, including the Neolithic Demographic Transition. Part III introduces the problem of economic growth and examines the human condition in the Late Holocene from the Bronze Age through the Black Death, assessing the relationships among human technologies, climatic change, and epidemic disease. Part IV explores the move to modernity, stressing the emerging role of human economic and energy systems as earth-system agents in the Anthropocene. Supported by climatic, demographic, and economic data with forty-nine figures and tables custom-made for this book, A Rough Journey provides a pathbreaking model for historians of the environment, the world, and science, among many others.
