Come Fly With Me: An Alaskan Nights Novel

by Addison Fox

How do you say no to a man at thirty-thousand feet? When Grier Thompson is called to Indigo, Alaska to deal with the estate of her late, estranged father, the last thing she expected to find was a hotly contested will, a hostile half-sister who never knew Grier existed, or for that matter, an entire town that doesn’t take kindly to this stranger. Except maybe for Mick O’Shaughnessy. An Indigo native, Mick has all he wants in life: a soft flannel shirt, a nice cottage, and a thriving airline charter business. Could this simple life get any better? One look at Grier and Mick discovers the answer is a resounding, “yes. ” She thinks so too—and if it weren’t for her family baggage, maybe she could relax and enjoy herself before it’s time to return to real life. But then an unexpected visitor from Grier’s past unsettles the entire town just when the residents were finally starting to warm to her. By the time Mick comes out of the clouds to realize he’s fallen head over heels in love, it might be just too late to win Grier’s heart. .

Come Hell or High Water: Hurricane Katrina and the Color of Disaster

by Michael Eric Dyson

Combining a fresh look at the key players in the disaster with his deep knowledge of black migrations and government policy over decades, Dyson provides the historical context that has been sorely missing from public conversation about Hurricane Katrina. He explores the legacy of black suffering in America since slavery and ties its psychic scars to today's crisis, even exploring the agonizing question that came from both survivors and right-wing apologists, "Did God cause Katrina?" His critique of the way black people are framed in the national consciousness will shock and surprise even the most politically savvy reader.

Come Hither To Go Yonder: Playing Bluegrass With Bill Monroe

by Bob Black

From the book: Bill Monroe was such a unique, complex, larger than life figure that the impact of his music and his person may still not have fully sunk in even almost 10 years after his death. There will surely be other books about Monroe in the future, but happily we can add this title to the 3 or 4 others already written about the man. Most recently, Butch Robins put out a provocative summation of his years as a banjo player, focusing heavily on his two stints as a Blue Grass Boy. Curiously, the writer of this new volume is also a banjo player, although of an entirely different background and temperament. This book concentrates on the 3-year period (1974-1976) when Black was Monroe's banjo player-and a good one. The book is an easy and very enjoyable read, filled with anecdotes and serious glimpses of life on the road with the legendary band leader. Any fan of Monroe will surely enjoy this well-written book. With Foreword written by Neil V. Rosenberg, author of "Bluegrass: A History." This volume also includes a complete listing of Bob Black's appearances with Monroe, his most memorable experiences while they worked together, brief descriptions of the more important musicians and bands mentioned, and suggestions for further reading and listening. Offering a rare perspective on the creative forces that drove one of America's greatest composers and musical innovators, Come Hither to Go Yonder will deeply reward any fans of Bill Monroe, of bluegrass, or of American vernacular music. FROM AUTHOR'S WEBSITE: "Being a bluegrass banjo player and Monroe fan for most of my life, I found it easy to project myself into the situations and encounters that Black describes. This is a stimulating and thoroughly enjoyable book that I would recommend to anyone interested in Monroe's music." -- Tom Adler, folklorist and bluegrass historian Come Hither to Go Yonder is told from the perspective of a musician who was actually there. Filled with observations made from the unique vantage point of a man who has traveled and performed extensively with the master, this book is Bob Black's personal memoir about the profound infiuence that Monroe exerted on the musicians who have carried on the bluegrass tradition in the wake of his 1996 death.

Come Home, America: The Rise and Fall (and Redeeming Promise) of Our Country

by William Greider

"The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present," Abraham Lincoln once declared. "The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so must we think anew, and act anew. We must disenthrall ourselves and then we shall save our country." His words are from 1862, when the Civil War was in its second year and already more terrible than expected. I think we are in a roughly similar place, without a great war to focus our energies. The "stormy present" has begun and it will become harsher and more confusing. But if we think anew, we can save the country. Come home, America. Instead of trying to run the world, let us tend our own wounded society. Let go of inflated claims to global dominance. Instead, redeem the fundamental values and sacred principles of the national inheritance. Do not resign from the world. Rejoin it on more practical and promising terms.

Come, Let Me Guide You

by Susan Krieger

Come, Let Me Guide You explores the intimate communication between author Susan Krieger and her guide dog Teela over the ten-year span of their working life together. This is a book about being led by a dog to new places in the world and new places in the self, a book about facing life's challenges outwardly and within, and about reading those clues--those deeply felt signals--that can help guide the way. It is also, more broadly, about the importance of intimate connection in human-animal relationships, academic work, and personal life. In her previous book, Traveling Blind: Adventures in Vision with a Guide Dog by My Side, Krieger focused on her first two years with Teela, her lively Golden Retriever-Yellow Labrador. Come, Let Me Guide You continues the narrative, beginning at the moment the author must confront Teela's retirement and then reflecting on the entire span of their relationship. These emotionally moving stories offer the reader personal entrée into a life of increasing pleasure and insight as Krieger describes how her relationship with her guide dog has had far-reaching effects, not only on her abilities to navigate the world while blind, but also on her writing and teaching, her ability to face loss, and her sense of self. Come, Let Me Guide You is an invaluable contribution to the literature on human-animal communication and on the guide-dog-human experience, as well as to disability and feminist ethnographic studies. It shows how a relationship with a guide dog is unique among bonds, for it rests upon highly regulated connections yet touches deep emotional chords. For Krieger, those chords have resulted in these memorable stories, often humorous and playful, always instructive, and generative of broader insight.
