<h2><b>“a book that is a little classic of the rugged life.” <em>Chicago Tribune</em></h2><br /><br />Have you thought of escaping from life in the “Big City”?<br /><br />Have you dreamed of stepping off the treadmill of work and leaving behind the tedious office job?</b><br /><br />Unhappy with his life in New York, Richard Morenus did just that.<br /><br />Taking along his dog and some equipment he left the humdrum life in the city for the wilderness.<br /><br />When he first arrived in the beautiful backwoods of Canada some Native Americans saw how unprepared he was for his new life and gave him the name Sha-ga-na-she Wa-du-kee, which translates to Crazy-White-Man.<br /><br />The first few months of his life in the bitter cold of a Canadian winter were a fight for survival for Morenus, but as the years went by he became more competent and began to thrive in the beautiful landscape.<br /><br /><em>Crazy-White-Man</em> is a brilliant account of Richard Morenus’ search for a new life in the Canadian wilderness. It is told in a down-to-earth style that is sure to appeal to any reader who dreams of an adventure.<br /><br />“As a story of the indomitable spirit of men and women pitted against the overwhelming forces of nature, ‘Crazy-White-Man’ is an inspiring one; as a tale of pure adventure, it will be hard to put down.” <em>Chicago Tribune</em><br /><br />“Respect for Mr. Morenus’ courage and hardihood grows with every page we read . . . it emerges as a valuable addition to the small number of books about the Canadian bush.” <em>The New York Times</em><br /><br />“Anyone from young to old who has wanted to toss the soft life of today into the discard and live as our ancestors did will enjoy this book. To those who have lived under frontier conditions it will be equally refreshing—and that cannot be said for many of this type.” <em>Colorado Spring Free Press</em><br /><br />“one of the best tales of escape from city pressures ... It is a vivid close-up of the Ontario bush—written down with the vividness and gaiety of a man who knew he was free.” <em>Christian Science Monitor</em><br /><br />Richard Morenus was a New York writer for radio and magazines when he left his old life for a new one in the wilderness of Ontario. He spent the next six years of his life there. His book <em>Crazy-White-Man</em> was first published in 1956 and he passed away in 1968.<br />

<B>In the midst of World War II, a German-American family finds themselves stranded in Japan in this </B><B>inspiring tale of an extraordinary family adapting to the hazards of fate, and finding salvation in each other. </B><BR><BR>In the spring of 1941, seven-year-old Hildegarde Ercklentz and her family leave their home in New York City and set off for their native Germany, where her father has been recalled to the headquarters of the Commerz & Privat Bank in Berlin. It was meant to be an epic journey, crossing the United States, the Pacific, and Siberia—but when Hitler invades Russia, a week-long stay in Yokohama, Japan becomes six years of quasi-detention, as Hildegarde and her family are stranded in Japan until the war’s end. In this spellbinding memoir, Mahoney recounts her family’s moving saga, from their courage in the face of terrible difficulties—including forced relocation, scarce rations, brutal winters in the Japanese Alps—to their joyous reunion with their German relatives in Hamburg, and their eventual return to New York City in 1950. Richly detailed and remarkably vivid, <I>Journey Interrupted</I> is a story unlike any other—the inspiring tale of an extraordinary family adapting to the hazards of fate, and finding salvation in each other.

The USA – the land of the future, the land of prosperity, success, glamor, and bling... But is it really (only) that?<br /><br />Through this book and my eyes, you will come to feel the pulse of the "promised land". This story is a mash up of my own awkward experiences on the other side of the great puddle, which I describe with a simple goal in mind: to dissolve the prejudices that we have about each other.<br /><br />Just between us, I can assure you that you will laugh – and cry – your heart out while reading this tour de farce. They say that laughter is the best medicine, so you're actually holding a cure-all in your hands ...<br />

<p>In this frank and witty memoir, Ken Ilgunas lays bare the existential terror of graduating from the University of Buffalo with $32,000 of student debt. Ilgunas set himself an ambitious mission: get out of debt as quickly as possible. Inspired by the frugality and philosophy of Henry David Thoreau, Ilgunas undertook a three-year transcontinental journey, working in Alaska as a tour guide, garbage picker, and night cook to pay off his student loans before hitchhiking home to New York.</p><p>Debt-free, Ilgunas then enrolled in a master’s program at Duke University, determined not to borrow against his future again. He used the last of his savings to buy himself a used Econoline van and outfitted it as his new dorm. The van, stationed in a campus parking lot, would be more than an adventure—it would be his very own “Walden on Wheels.”</p><p>Freezing winters, near-discovery by campus police, and the constant challenge of living in a confined space would test Ilgunas’s limits and resolve in the two years that followed. What had begun as a simple mission would become an enlightening and life-changing social experiment.</p><p><i>Walden on Wheels</i> offers a spirited and pointed perspective on the dilemma faced by those who seek an education but who also want to, as Thoreau wrote, “live deep and suck out all the marrow of life.”</p>
