    Miracle in Shreveport - A Memoir...

    Twin brothers David and Jason Benham grew up with big dreams of baseball and an even bigger trust in God. Though they attended a small high school with no baseball field, turned down a professional offer so they could attend college together, and faced more than one missed pitch and injuries, they kept dreaming, praying together on the field, and believing in God’s provision for their lives. 
    David and Jason’s journey, from Little League to college to professional baseball and beyond, reminds us that even when we don’t know what God is up to, He’s putting together the pieces of our life’s puzzle and executing the plans He has for each of us. 
    Miracle in Shreveport tells the story of a family’s love, the power of prayer, and a game that is truly all-American. It is also the story of brotherhood staying strong, despite the threat of comparison in a profession committed to competition. Most of all, it is the story of being faithful in small steps, honoring God in the process, and trusting His hand in our lives. In this audiobook, the Benhams call us to remember that when we follow God’s dream for us, we find it is better than we could have ever dreamed for ourselves.

    A “special and magnetic” memoir of one man’s lifelong love of fishing, the connection between man and nature, and the man who taught him about both (Carl Hiaasen, New York Times–bestselling author).   As a child in the 1960s, young British schoolboy Luke Jennings was fascinated by the rivers and lakes around his home and the mysterious worlds hidden beneath their surfaces. With library books as his guide, he applied himself to the task of learning to fish. But his progress was slow, and for years, he caught nothing.   Then a series of teachers presented themselves, including a young British intelligence officer, from whom he learned stealth, deception, and the art of dry-fly fishing. So began an enlightening yet mysterious journey of discovery that would lead to bright streams and wild country—but would ultimately end with his mentor’s capture, torture, and execution by the IRA.  Blood Knots is about angling, about great fish caught and lost, and about friendship, honor, and coming of age. Short-listed for both the Samuel Johnson and William Hill prizes, it is a shining example of “literature with that rare combination of the poetic and visceral” containing “some true set-the-book-down, gaze-out-your-window . . . ponder-that-last-beautiful-paragraph-you-just-read moments” (Michael Keaton, actor).

    Take Yourself from Miserable, Mediocre Golfer to Consistent Par-Breaker  
    Imagine this. You've been working on your golf game for the past few months now, and you think you're starting to see results. 
    You read all the books, forums, and watched all the videos in preparation for this moment. 
    You take the shot. You swing. And miss. Again. 
    Aren't you sick of that feeling?  
    I know it way too well. It took me years to go from a totally inconsistent golfer to one that could regularly break par.  
    I browsed golf forums, social media groups, and even read dozens of books on the subject. I loved everything about the game, but for the life of me, I just could not win. 
    But over time, I started to gain a little traction. I would adjust my grip a bit, and my score improved. 
    I would change up my swing a bit, and my score improved a tad bit more. I did this with every aspect of my game. 
    This trial and error process eventually paid off, but it took years.  
    Fortunately for you, I consolidated all of that information into this single game-changing guidebook for beginners like yourself. In this book, I show you exactly what you need to focus on to see results in mere weeks, rather than spending years and years like I did.

    All you need to do is focus on the tactics in this book exactly as I teach you, and you will see drastic improvements and consistent wins in your golf game in no time.

    “In Traveling Light [Barich] simply does it—goes fishing, goes to the races, goes to Europe. He dramatizes his restlessness without gathering wool” (The New York Times).   Here is a travel book with a difference: ten chronological chapters from a year of wandering, from the Pacific Northwest to Tuscany and back again to the trout-laden streams of California. Join Bill Barich as he travels the globe, from the trout streams of Northern California to the auction ring at Saratoga, where millions of dollars may be gaveled away for a yearling thoroughbred; from seedy London pubs to a run-down Florentine palazzo during a glorious Italian spring. Learn the science of English beer brewing, the art of fly tying, how to generate hydroelectric power, the proper analysis of the Daily Racing Form, and the best way to eat artichokes.   Freshness, wit, and Barich’s distinctive voice create a luminous travelogue crackling with an inimitable curiosity and an elegance of style that marks every step of this remarkable journey.   “Barich is a wonderful writer. His angle of vision is his own, his prose is a delight.” —Larry McMurtry, Pulitzer Prize–winning author   “I had a fine time with Traveling Light. Barich is a splendid prose stylist . . . I will continue to look forward to anything he writes.” —Jim Harrison, New York Times–bestselling author   “Witty, knowledgeable, good writing . . . Start Barich now and keep reading him.” —Thomas McGuane, author of The Longest Silence: A Life in Fishing
