Welcome to Willow Falls. The town young Matthew Bannister ran away from fifteen years before. Now famed U.S. Deputy Marshal Matt Bannister is coming home to reconcile with his family.

However, old feuds unsettled never die and spark a powder keg of action when the desperate Moskin Gang kidnap Elizabeth and leave a murderous trail behind them. In anguish, Tom, the Willow Falls sheriff, turns to his despised old-friend to help get the woman they both love back alive, if they can. <br /><br />Sometimes God’s greatest blessing is unanswered prayer. <br />

<b><h2>“In these pages, a woman, a wife and mother, speaks the sorrows and oppressions of which she has been the witness and the victim.” Harriet Beecher Stowe</b></h2><br /><br />Fanny Stenhouse’s famous work <em>Tell it All</em> is a withering attack on the practice of polygamy that developed as a prominent tenet of Mormon faith in the nineteenth century.<br /><br />She begins her story with an account of how as a young woman her family had converted to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and how she had attracted the attention, and subsequently married, T. B. H. Stenhouse.<br /><br />Living in Europe they were unaware of how their religion was developing in the Midwest and how the practice of plural marriage was beginning to become ever more prevalent among the members of their faith.<br /><br />Responding to encouragement and counselling they eventually emigrated to the promised land of Utah and to their horror they began to learn that the rumors of Joseph Smith’s polygamic revelation were true and that some of the church leadership, such as Brigham Young, had over fifty wives.<br /><br /><em>Tell it All</em> provides fascinating insight into how the Mormon faith was developing in the mid-nineteenth century and how women such as Fanny were struggling to come to terms with doctrines such as polygamy.<br /><br /><br />The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints largely distanced itself from polygamy in the later-nineteenth century, much due to the work of women such as Fanny Stenhouse and others including a former wife of Brigham Young, Ann Eliza Young.<br /><br />This book also uncovers some of the other darker moments of Mormon history such as the Mountains Meadows Massacre, in which the men and women of an emigrant wagon train were indiscriminately slaughtered by Mormons of the Nauvoo Legion.<br /><br />“added more details on polygamy, on Brigham Young’s life in polygamy, and on the Mountains Meadows Massacre” <em> The John Whitmer Historical Association Journal</em><br /><br />Fanny Stenhouse was an early Mormon pioneer who, along with her husband T. B. H. Stenhouse, defected from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, largely due to their disagreements with the church about polygamy. <em>Tell it All A Woman's Life in Polygamy</em> was first published in 1872 and Fanny passed away in 1904.<br />

<h2><b>Admiral William F. “Bull” Halsey earned a legendary reputation for daring and boldness as commander of the U.S. Third Fleet.</h2></b><br /><br /><em>Admiral Halsey’s Story</em> is this admiral’s record of his actions through the course of his remarkable career in the U.S. Navy.<br /><br />The account begins with a brief overview of his years in school and early years with the navy where he fought in the First World War and served in Mexico and Greece as he rose through the ranks to become vice admiral just before the outbreak of the Second World War.<br /><br />Halsey’s life was dramatically altered with the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor as through the next four years he rose from relative obscurity to become one of the most famous allied naval figures in the war.<br /><br />The events of Halsey’s life through World War Two are split into three sections in the book and are covered in wonderful detail:<br />Firstly he uncovers the details of his command of a carrier task force in the immediate aftermath of Pearl Harbor until May 1942.<br />Next the book discusses his life as Commander of the South Pacific Area and its forces which lasted until June 1944.<br />And finally the book gives an in-depth overview of the final year of the war when Halsey was commander of the U.S. Third Fleet.<br /><br />During the war Halsey had continually acted with bravery and speed and all of his most famous actions are covered through the book such as how he directed the campaigns in the Solomons and led the attacks on the Carolines and New Britain.<br /><br />“The book is pure Halsey — the personal yarn of a seagoing, fighting admiral who was forthright, honest, often brilliant, sometimes rash, but who possessed above all else, a natural modesty that enhanced his uncommon valor.” <em>Naval War College Review</em><br /><br />“To learn what went on behind the wartime newspaper reports, her is an incomparable document. Admiral Halsey has written simply and modestly a book that will further enhance the Halsey legend.” <em>The Saturday Review</em><br /><br />“he knew far better than armchair historians do that the best defense is a good offense. That is the legacy of Bull Halsey.” <em>Warfare History Network</em><br /><br />William F. Halsey was an American admiral in the United States Navy during World War II. In 1943 he was made commander of the Third Fleet, the post he held through the rest of the war. He was promoted to fleet admiral in December 1945 and retired from active service in March 1947. <em>Admiral Halsey's Story</em> was first published in 1947 and Halsey passed away in 1959. The book was written with Lieutenant Commander J. Bryan III, USNR, who during the war had served a lieutenant commander assigned to naval air combat intelligence in the Pacific. In civilian life he was a journalist and writer who was born into the influential Bryan family of newspaper publishers and industrialists. He passed away in 1993.<br />

<b>On 19th October 1940, the Hawaiian Air Force, later known as the Seventh Air Force, was established to provide air defense of the Hawaiian Island and to engage with threats in the Pacific.</b><br /><br />Just over a year later the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor devastated this force. Out of a total of 231 aircraft of the Hawaiian Air Force, 64 were destroyed and not more than 79 were left usable. <br /><br />Out of the inferno emerged the newly reformed Seventh Air Force.<br /><br />It faced, in the central Pacific, the largest water theater in the world — sixteen million square miles, five times the size of the United States. <br /><br />The Americans patched up their planes as best they could and began to fly the "Atoll Circuit," the low-lying, white sand atolls and the first stepping stones on the long road to Tokyo. <br /><br />In this huge area and against a fearsome opponent, the men of the Seventh were forced to fly the longest missions in any theater of war, entirely over water and, at first, without fighter escort. <br /><br />They fought at Midway, Guadalcanal, Tarawa, Kwajalein, Eniwetok, Truk, Saipan, Palau, the Philippines, Iwo Jima, and finally Tokyo.<br /><br />Clive Howard and Joe Whitley’s history of this remarkable air force covers from the events at Pearl Harbor through to V-J Day, covering every single island that the force landed on in between.<br /><br />They listened to demand of Corporal Earl Nelson’s article “Heroes Don’t Win Wars”, that criticised the press and radio that only recorded the fantastic achievements of men who wore medals; “Why don’t they talk about the guy who is just a soldier?” <br /><br />So with humor and insight Howard and Whitley have provided us with a history of the Seventh Air Force that doesn’t focus on only the glorious achievements of some men, nor does it simply record the accounts of the “brass hats”, but instead gets to the heart of what the men of this extraordinary force did and thought.<br /><br />Clive Howard and Joe Whitley were both sergeants and served as correspondents for the Seventh Air Force. They were there; they saw it happen. Their book <em> One Damned Island After Another</em> was first published in 1946.<br />

<B>Khorramshahr, Iran, May 1982—It was the bloodiest battle of one of the most brutal wars of the twentieth century, and Najah, a twenty-nine-year-old wounded Iraqi conscript, was face to face with a thirteen-year-old Iranian child soldier who was ordered to kill him. Instead, the boy committed an astonishing act of mercy. It was an act that decades later would save his own life.</B><BR><BR>This is a remarkable story. It is gut-wrenching, essential, and astonishing. It’s a war story. A love story. A page-turner of vast moral dimensions. An eloquent and haunting act of witness to horrors beyond grimmest fiction, and a thing of towering beauty. More importantly, it is a story that must be told, and a richly textured view into an overlooked conflict and misunderstood region. This is the great untold story of the children and young men whose lives were sacrificed at the whim of vicious dictators and pointless, barbaric wars.<BR> <BR> Little has been written of the Iran-Iraq war, which was among the most brutal conflicts of the twentieth century, one fought with chemical weapons, ballistic missiles, and cadres of child soldiers.<BR> <BR> The numbers involved are staggering:<BR> —All told, it claimed 700,000 lives—200,000 Iraqis, and 500,000 Iranians.<BR> —Young men of military service age—eighteen and above in Iraq, fifteen and above in Iran—died in the greatest numbers.<BR> —80,000 Iranian child soldiers were killed, mostly between the ages of sixteen and seventeen.<BR> —The two countries spent a combined 1.1 trillion dollars fighting the war.<BR> <BR> Rarely does this kind of reportage succeed so power- fully as literature. More rarely still does such searingly brilliant literature—fit to stand beside Remarque, Hemingway, and O’Brien—emerge from behind “enemy” lines.<BR> <BR> But Zahed, a child, and Najah, a young restaurateur, are rare men—not just survivors, but masterful, wondrously gifted storytellers. Written with award-winning journalist Meredith May, this is literature of a very high order, set down with passion, urgency, and consummate skill. This story is an affirmation that, in the end, it is our humanity that transcends politics and borders and saves us all.
