About the Novel: 
 
Hatchet is a Newbery Honor winning story about a boy surviving a plane crash in the Canadian wilderness. Miles off course, Brian must wait out the search for him while surviving in the harsh environment. With nothing but a hatchet his mother gave him, Brian soon discovers his greatest tool for survival is himself. A bear, porcupine, moose and even tornado threaten to hinder Brian’s attempt at survival; however, he manages to make a shelter for himself, weapons, and finally a fire. With these tools, Brian must hunt and gather food and water in order to stay alive while he waits for a rescue plane to find him.

    “Entertaining, informative, thought-provoking, mysterious, poetic. Men who read it will surely learn much about themselves, and women—particularly those who are unfortunately misled into thinking of men as “the enemy”—will find it a real eye-opener.”—Ruth Tiffany Barnhouse, M.D., Th.M., Harvard University 
    Robert A. Johnson's classic work exploring the differences between man and woman, female and male—newly reissued. 
    What does it really mean to be a man? What are some of the landmarks along the road to mature masculinity? And what of the feminine components of a man's personality?  
    Women do not really know as much about men as they think they do. They have developed, over the centuries, considerable expertise in the technique of adapting to men, but that is not the same as truly understanding them. Women often labor under the delusion that life is really pretty easy for men, at least when compared to their own lot, and they have no idea what a complicated struggle is really involved in the transition from male childhood to real manhood. 
    As timely today as when it was first published, He provides a fascinating look into male identity and how female dynamics influence men.

    In Architects of Ruin, New York Times bestselling author and conservative historian Peter Schweizer argues that the economic crisis was caused by liberals who used the power of government to create a subprime mortgage bubble that has ravaged the global economy. Rebutting charges that the financial collapse was caused by conservative deregulatory zeal, Schweizer, the author of Do as I Say (Not as I Do): Profiles in Liberal Hypocrisy, shows that it was actually the result of “do-good capitalism.”

    The astonishing true story of Beverli Rhodes, child victim of a sick, high-profile paedophilia ring and, years later, of the London Tube bombings, who rebuilt her life with the help of one very special animal - the horse. Horses saved Beverli Rhodes's mind, and life. As a child, her world consisted of overlapping layers, in which sexually abusive men and her beautiful saviour horses were distinguished only by levels of pain or joy. She survived to make a life for herself - only to suffer a second, devastating blow when she was caught up in the London Underground bombings of 7 July 2005, in which she was seriously injured. As a result of this traumatic experience, her fragile world became overrun with long-buried memories of her childhood, her waking hours haunted by flashbacks to agonising experiences.Her years of child sex abuse had resulted in significant memory loss. Now vile memories came flooding back as a result of a severe blow to the head in the underground train. When the British healthcare system seemed to fail her, she sought other avenues to cope with severe post-traumatic stress disorder, her recovery directly resulting from contact with horses. Supported by her partner, she is now able to live a peaceful life, and continues to maintain her strong connection with the animals that helped to save her.Moving and at times horrific, The Horse Girl is an extraordinary story of hate redeemed by love, as well as a testament to the triumph of the human spirit over the most terrible adversity.

    Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends by Peter Schweizer | Conversation Starters
    
    The #1 New York Times bestselling book Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends is about how corruption has been more prevalent in America than ever before. The author Peter Schweizer has been in the war against corruption for many years, and he has many triumphs. In his new book Secret Empires, he tells why the American bank that opened in China was prohibited by United States laws from hiring some family members of the top politicians in China. In contrast, the Chinese bank that opened in America has the freedom to hire whomever it wants. Schweizer also discussed how the media only focused on President Donald Trump's children and their shady transactions while barely questioning the suspicious deals made by the those who are close to Joe Biden, Mitch McConnell, John Kerry, and former President Barack Obama. In different parts of the world, the children of influential and powerful political figures venture in businesses and gain high profits. They may not be good at business, but people want to gain favor from their powerful parents. This phenomenon is relatively new in the United States. However, the relatives of well-known political families may already be dealing with hundreds of millions of dollars. Peter Schweizer's book Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends is deeply researched and filled with astounding revelations. It identifies the public servants who are not worthy of the trust of the American people. This book provides the path towards a more accountable and transparent government.
