Summary

It’s 1966 and Mickey Van escapes the jungles of Vietnam for a cushy post in Germany. While traveling, making deals and courting ladies through all of Western Europe – James, Mickey’s best friend, is black, alone, afraid and not so lucky as he fights for his life and sanity in the daily terror of the Hell known as Rice and Dice Land.
 
Dealing with the anguishes and challenges of both Romance and War, the mix will satisfy the reading thirsts of both genre enthusiasts. Liaisons with a General’s daughter in Paris,  an Oxford-educated brothel Madam in Stuttgart and finally an angel of mercy Army nurse in Vietnam, all find our lead character’s life of Love, Lust and Guilt blended Cuisinart style and it all makes for an intriguing Historical Coming of Age Novel.
 
The letters that the two soldiers share are horrifying, bloody and brutal as well as life-preserving and morale-boosting. Following a long and treacherous battle fighting the North Vietnamese, James is cut down by friendly fire and sent home to his sobbing Mother in a flag-draped coffin along with thousands of other sacrificial lambs.
 
Mickey Van, suffering from survivor’s guilt, trades his sexual escapades in Paris, Germany, Italy, and Amsterdam for likely death as a Medevac Helicopter Pilot in the country that took James’ life. These choppers bearing giant red crosses taxi maimed and bleeding soldiers screaming for their gods and mothers to healing hands providing that they might someday see their grandchildren.

    Kassem Eid survived arrest in al-Assad's regime, a chemical weapons attack that shocked the world, and the siege of a city where he fought with the Syrian rebel army. This is his story-a unique and powerfully moving testimony for our times, with a foreword by Janine di Giovanni. 
     
    On August 21, 2013, Kassem Eid nearly died in a sarin gas attack in the town of Moadamiya. At least 1,500 people were killed. Later that day, he was hit by a mortar while helping the Free Syrian Army fight government forces. He survived that, too. But his entire world-friends, neighbors, family, everything he knew-had been devastated beyond repair. 
     
    Eid recalls moving to Moadamiya in 1989, at the age of three. The streets where he and his eleven siblings played were fragrant with jasmine. But he soon realized that he was treated differently at school because of his family's Palestinian immigrant origins, and their resistance to the brutal regime. When Bashar al-Assad succeeded his father in 2000, hopes that he would ease the state's severity were swiftly crushed. 
     
    The unprecedented scope of this brave, deeply felt memoir makes it unique in the body of literature to emerge from the Syrian civil war. Eid illuminates the realities of growing up in a corrupt dictatorship; the strictures of living under siege; the impact of unspeakable violence; and how, at extraordinary personal risk, he drew worldwide attention to the assault on cities across Syria. This is a searing account of oppression, war, grit, and escape, and a heartbreaking love letter to a world lost forever.

    MEN: If You Want to Naturally Last as Long as You Want in Bed Without Drugs and Permanently Cure Premature Ejaculation in No Time, Then This Is All You’ll Ever Need – Guaranteed! 
     
    Calm down and put a smile on your face. You are not the only one. I know “exactly” what you’re going through and this book is 100% the cure with a solid guarantee. Don’t worry, be happy. You’ll see for yourself soon.
     
    The day I smooched a girl, I ejaculated in my pants in less than 69 seconds. That day was one of my worst days and I vowed to handle this part of my life once and for all. I was so embarrassed.
     
    I'll save you from your bedroom depression and frustration.
     
    Investing in your sex life is an investment for your future. Some people will discourage you by saying, "Make money first, or go to school first."
     
    Both are good advice, but your ego will be shattered when you suck with women in general and mostly in bed.
     
    You will be tired of tramadol, alcohol, Viagra, marijuana, cocaine, codeine, or any other substances you believe in. Remember, most of them have side effects.
     
    Why not acquire these skills naturally? One day, you'll travel abroad and may not get your local enhancer there.
     
    Think of the money you waste on paying for sex with women just to get in their panties or get them to love you.
     
    Or, the money you spend on buying sexual enhancers and substances. Calculate the money for a year and you’ll see how much you’ve been wasting.
    
     
    When you have this skill,
     
    * The table will turn
     
    * Women will be the ones spending on you just to have a taste.
     
    Lasting long enough to make a woman have an orgasm or squirt is more gratifying than being in the office.
    
     
    When your woman is satisfied,
     
    * You will feel great about yourself and
     
    * You will do things you have never done before with joy
     
    * It will boost your confidence.
     
    Who doesn't want to last longer in bed? All men want to be the men who always rock their women at any given time.
     
    If you cannot last long enough for your woman to reach an orgasm and fulfill her sexual needs, then she'll find it somewhere else, and you know what that means?
    
     
    So, do all your learning now. With Lasticle:
     
    * You'll start making fun of men who use Viagra
     
    * Or other sex-enhancing substances to boost their performances
     
    * You'll become one of those men who will NEVER need an enhancer to last long
     
    * Your eyes will open to sexual realities.
     
    It's not easy, but it's achievable if you put your heart to it. We have trained lots of men who didn’t believe they could do it.
     
    The end of your premature ejaculation is here and do not miss the opportunity of being the man every woman wants to sleep with or at least, fantasize about.
     
    Be careful, this book will forever change your sex life for good. Your confidence and composure around women will skyrocket to another level.
     
    At the end of this Lasticle book, I promise, you will be confident in anything regarding lasting as long as you want in bed and in turn, unimaginably satisfy your woman.
     
    Before you purchase this book, it's good to know what is inside this book is the only permanent solution on earth and it works—guaranteed!
     
    Would you rather have this handled now or keep wasting money on sex drugs for the rest of your life? This is the best material you'll ever read on this topic. I kid you not. You'll smile at last and finally say, "Why haven't I read this book all these while?"

  • Fire Canoe - Prairie Steamboat Days Revisited - cover

    Fire Canoe - Prairie Steamboat...

    The story of steamboating in the Canadian West comes to life in the voices of those aboard the vessels of the waterways of the Prairies.
    
    Their captains were seafaring skippers who had migrated inland. Their pilots were indigenous people who could read the shoals, sandbars, and currents of Prairie waterways. Their operators were businessmen hoping to reap the benefits of commercial enterprise along the shores and banks of Canada’s inland lakes and rivers. Their passengers were fur traders, adventure-seekers, and immigrants opening up the West. All of them sought their futures and fortunes aboard Prairie steamboats, decades before the railways arrived and took credit for the breakthrough.
    
     
    Aboriginal people called them “fire canoes,” but in the latter half of the nineteenth century, their operators promoted them as Mississippi-type steamship queens delivering speedy transport, along with the latest in technology and comfort. Then, as the twentieth century dawned, steamboats and their operators adapted. They launched smaller, more tailored steamers and focused on a new economy of business and pleasure in the West. By day their steamboats chased freight, fish, lumber, iron ore, real estate, and gold-mining contracts. At night, they brought out the Edwardian finery, lights, and music to tap the pleasure-cruise market.
