<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.

<h2><b>“One of the 50 best books of all time on the American West.” <em>True West</em></b></h2><br /><br />In 1856 Frederick Law Olmsted began a journey into the heart of Texas.<br /><br />His account of the Lone Star State just a few years before the beginning of the Civil War is one of the most remarkable books ever to have been published about the American West.<br /><br />He travelled on horseback through small towns, across plains and down canyons in his quest to speak, listen and record what early Texans thought, saw and said.<br /><br />Olmstead spent over a year speaking to everyone he met, from runaway slaves to housewives, from Native American chiefs to German emigrants going to Texas to begin their new lives. <br /><br />“Olmstead’s appeal was attributable to his readable and unvarnished reportage of places and events to which few Easterners had direct access. . . . [It] provides a credible glimpse of life in Texas in the mid-1850s, as well as insights into the contemporary debate over the institution of slavery. . . . it remains a basic source for historians of the region and the period.” <em>Southwest Book Views</em><br /><br />"intelligent, lively, readable book, packed with keen observation and lightened by a delicate strain of humor." Larry McMurty<br /><br />“The peculiar institution was more peculiar in Texas than in other states, and Olmsted’s eye for the weirdness makes Journey, a page turner. So does his use of sprightly travelogue to make the serious argument that slavery was ruining Texas. . . . Olmsted’s word portraits of mid-19th-century Texas are as good as the best modern travelogues.” Debbie Nathan, <em>Texas Observer</em><br /><br />“Some of the most interesting works that have been written on America … are the production of a native, Mr. F. L. Olmsted.” <em>The British Quarterly Review</em><br /><br />“Praise for this book has been almost universal (in the North at least) since its publication in 1857 and continues to this day.” <em>Southwestern Historical Quarterly</em><br /><br />The works of Frederick Law Olmsted have been hailed as some of the most convincing and influential anti-slavery arguments, his work was widely praised with London’s <em>Westminster Review</em> declaring, “it is impossible to resist his accumulated evidence.”<br /><br />Frederick Law Olmsted was an American landscape architect, journalist, social critic, and public administrator. He was particularly famous for assisting in the design of many of America’s most loved parks, including Central Park in New York City, Golden Gate Park in San Francisco and Elm Park in Worcester, Massachusetts. He wrote three different accounts of his travels across America. <em> A Journey through Texas: Or a Saddle-Trip on the Southwestern Frontier</em> was first published in 1857 and he passed away in 1903.<br /><br />

<h2>James O. Pattie’s <em>Personal Narrative</em> is a prime source for the history of the Southwest during the 1820s.</h2><br /><br />He, and a group of fur trappers, set out on a journey from St. Louis to California and back.<br /><br />After Jed Smith’s trip this journey, which began in 1824, is the second known expedition to California.<br /><br />This remarkable book records an eyewitness account of what the West was like before the great swathes of migration occurred.<br /><br />Pattie’s book fully explores the dangers of life as a trapper in the wilderness of the far west, including during one episode after Pattie and a group of French trappers were attacked and only three of them survived.<br /><br /><em>Personal Narrative</em> provides fascinating insight into the earliest clashes that were beginning to occur between citizens of the travelers from the east, Native Americans and Mexicans as United States began its great westward expansion.<br /><br />Yet, Pattie also demonstrates how there was great cooperation between groups, for example when he aided Mexicans, Native Americans, missionaries and settlers with smallpox vaccinations.<br /><br />It is essential reading for anyone interested in finding out more about the Old West and life of this fascinating American frontiersman.<br /><br />James O. Pattie first published his account <em> The Personal Narrative of James O. Pattie of Kentucky</em> in 1831 and he passed away in 1851.<br />

But studies report similar results for the Paleo diet books that fill our bookshelves. The problem is that researchers are often highly selective about the data they report.

In 1974 a disenfranchised young man from a broken home set out to do the impossible. With a hundred dollars in his pocket, a beat up cavalry saddle, and a faraway look in his eye, John Egenes saddled his horse Gizmo and started down the trail on an adventure across the North American continent. Their seven month journey took them across 11 states from California to Virginia, ocean to ocean.. As they left the pressing confinement of the city behind them, the pair experienced the isolation and loneliness of the southwestern deserts, the vastness of the prairie, and the great landscapes that make up America. Across hundreds of miles of empty land they slept with coyotes and wild horses under the stars, and in urban areas they camped alone in graveyards and abandoned shacks. Along the way John and Gizmo were transformed from inexperienced horse and rider to veterans of the trail. With his young horse as his spiritual guide John slowly began to comprehend his own place in the world and to find peace within himself. Full of heart and humor, Egenes serves up a tale that's as big as the America he witnessed, an America that no longer exists. It was a journey that could only have been experienced step by step, mile by mile, from the view between a horse's ears.

At the age of seventeen in a last-minute twist of fate, Laura Bradbury is sent to Burgundy, France, for a year’s exchange. She arrives knowing only a smattering of French and with no idea what to expect in her first foray out of North America. With a head full of dreams and a powerful desire to please, Laura quickly adapts to Burgundian life, learning crucial skills such as the fine art of winetasting and how to savor snails. <br /><br />However, the charming young men of the region mean Laura soon runs afoul of the rules, particularly the no-dating edict. Romantic afternoons in Dijon, early morning pain au chocolat runs, and long walks in the vineyards are wondrous but also present Laura with a conundrum: How can she keep her hosts happy while still managing to follow her heart? Follow along on Laura’s journey to I’amour in My Grape Year.<br /><br />Praise for Laura Bradbury's Grape Series:<br />"Bradbury’s Grape Series feels like a series of honest and funny letters sent from a friend about her fascinating (and sometimes baffling) life in France. A beautiful read.”<br />—JANICE MACLEOD, New York Times bestselling author of Paris Letters and A Paris Year<br /><br />“Bradbury’s Grape Series takes the reader on a romantic adventure into the heart, soul, and people of la belle France. Filled with delicious food, love, and laughter, Bradbury’s writing proves that you have to dare to follow your heart wherever it leads you...and that sometimes we have to step outside our comfort zone to truly live.”<br />—SAMANTHA VÉRANT, author of How to Make a French Family and Seven Letters from Paris
