All Hell Broke Loose: Experiences of Young People During the Armistice Day 1940 Blizzard

by William H. Hull

(Introduction) After going through all the thousands of hours it takes to write a book, an author sometimes asks himself why he did it? That's a fair question. I wasn't even in the state of Minnesota on that fateful day of November 11, 1940. I was a graduate student at Southern Methodist University in Dallas and a steady reader of the Dallas Morning News. The story must have been covered by that fine newspaper but, if so, it made no impression on me. Later when I became a Minnesotan I began to hear stories of this horrible storm that killed so many people. Through the 39 years I have considered myself a Minnesotan I have frequently thought what a shame that all of those stories about this particular storm weren't written, so I decided to act for the good of history and before these people died. After all, that storm was 45 years ago at this writing. It seemed to me that people would want to know what it was like to be living on a farm with cattle and chickens to take care of, to be facing possible death on a small island in the Mississippi while duck hunting, to fight for survival in snow that seemed to be up to the armpits in northern Minnesota while deer hunting, and to be immovably caught in the "loop" of a big city like Minneapolis or St. Paul with no place to spend the night and no way to get home. These are the experiences about which these many Minnesotans have written. Speaking for all of them, I hope you enjoy their tales and realize how agonizing it was for many people- those who were fortunate enough to live through it. My only regret is that so many of the 500 + experiences received and edited had to be eliminated to restrict the physical size of the book. After repeatedly selecting from the anecdotes received, the final cutting eliminated sixty percent of those I wished to include. William Hull

All Hell Let Loose: The World at War, 1939-1945

by Max Hastings

From one of our finest military historians, a monumental work that shows us at once the truly global reach of World War II and its deeply personal consequences. World War II involved tens of millions of soldiers and cost sixty million lives--an average of twenty-seven thousand a day. For thirty-five years, Max Hastings has researched and written about different aspects of the war. Now, for the first time, he gives us a magnificent, single-volume history of the entire war. Through his strikingly detailed stories of everyday people--of soldiers, sailors and airmen; British housewives and Indian peasants; SS killers and the citizens of Leningrad, some of whom resorted to cannibalism during the two-year siege; Japanese suicide pilots and American carrier crews--Hastings provides a singularly intimate portrait of the world at war. He simultaneously traces the major developments--Hitler's refusal to retreat from the Soviet Union until it was too late; Stalin's ruthlessness in using his greater population to wear down the German army; Churchill's leadership in the dark days of 1940 and 1941; Roosevelt's steady hand before and after the United States entered the war--and puts them in real human context.Hastings also illuminates some of the darker and less explored regions under the war's penumbra, including the conflict between the Soviet Union and Finland, during which the Finns fiercely and surprisingly resisted Stalin's invading Red Army; and the Bengal famine in 1943 and 1944, when at least one million people died in what turned out to be, in Nehru's words, "the final epitaph of British rule" in India. Remarkably informed and wide-ranging, Inferno is both elegantly written and cogently argued. Above all, it is a new and essential understanding of one of the greatest and bloodiest events of the twentieth century.From the Hardcover edition.

All Honest Men

by Claude Stanush Michele Stanush

All Honest Men is based on the true-life story of J. Willis Newton, a feisty sharecropper's son who fled the Texas cotton fields to become the leader of the most successful band of outlaws in American history. It is also a window into one of the country's most pivotal eras, the early twentieth century--when the United States was passing from a primarily rural society into an industrialized and urban one, and the American Dream was changing from owning a patch of land to making "big money."

All Hopped Up and Ready to Go: Music from the Streets of New York 1927-77

by Tony Fletcher

A penetrating and entertaining exploration of New York's music scene from Cubop through folk, punk, and hip-hop. From Tony Fletcher, the acclaimed biographer of Keith Moon, comes an incisive history of New York's seminal music scenes and their vast contributions to our culture. Fletcher paints a vibrant picture of mid-twentieth-century New York and the ways in which its indigenous art, theater, literature, and political movements converged to create such unique music. With great attention to the colorful characters behind the sounds, from trumpet player Dizzy Gillespie to Tito Puente, Bob Dylan, and the Ramones, he takes us through bebop, the Latin music scene, the folk revival, glitter music, disco, punk, and hip-hop as they emerged from the neighborhood streets of Harlem, the East and West Village, Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Queens. All the while, Fletcher goes well beyond the history of the music to explain just what it was about these distinctive New York sounds that took the entire nation by storm.

Now, seven million copies later, Fulghum returns to the book that was embraced around the world.

Here Fulghum engages us with musings on life, death, love, pain, joy, sorrow, and the best chicken-fried steak in the continental U. S. A. The little seed in the Styrofoam cup offers a reminder about our own mortality and the delicate nature of life . . . a spider who catches (and loses) a full-grown woman in its web one fine morning teaches us about surviving catastrophe . . . the love story of Jean-Francois Pilatre and his hot air balloon reminds us to be brave and unafraid to . . . life lessons hidden in the laundry pile . . . magical qualities found in a box of crayons . . . hide-and-seek vs. sardines and how these games relate to the nature of God. All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten is brimming with the very stuff of life and the significance found in the smallest details. In the years that have passed since the first publication of this book that touched so many with its simple, profound wisdom, Robert Fulghum has had some time to ponder, to reevaluate, and to reconsider. And here are those fresh thoughts on classic topics, right alongside the wonderful new essays. Perhaps in today's chaotic, more challenging world, these essays on life will resonate even deeper as readers discover how universal insights can be found in ordinary events.

All I Really Want

by Quinn G. Caldwell

Sometimes the happiest and holiest time of the year is also the hardest for people to enjoy. These daily readings offer the skeptic, the over-committed the opportunity to make room-perhaps just enough room-for God to show up. The weeks leading up to Christmas can spark a strong spiritual longing for more. Although it may never be articulated, we sense beneath those longings is a yearning for an experience of God. These brief writings address the challenges and realities of the season and include a simple action, ritual or meditation designed to gently steer the reader toward the deeper meaning that underlies the season. Smart, witty, edgy--and always hopeful--readings by Quinn Caldwell include a brief prayer for each morning and evening during the entire Christmas season. This book takes seriously the modern person's hunger for meaning and import in a season that feels increasingly frivolous. Includes a calendar with one easy task to do each day.
