Summary

The sixteenth book in the dramatic and intriguing story about the colonisation of Australia: a country made of blood, passion, and dreams.
Michael knows that he cannot outrun his past, yet it is the longing for freedom that keeps him alive.
Australia… For some, a land of opportunity where bravery and honour rule the once savaged wilderness, for others, a brutal prison where even the best of men are driven to commit some of the cruellest acts in the name of freedom. Michael Wexford is aware that his past follows him wherever he goes, yet Kitty and Patrick Cadogan are determined to clear his name, no matter the cost.

    Three Men on the Bummel (1900) is a comical travelogue by Jerome K. Jerome. The three companions are on a bicycle tour through the German Black Forest. What does Bummel mean? D. C. Browning writes "The title must be puzzling to many readers, for 'bummel' will not be found in English dictionaries." You can learn it's meaning at the last chapter of the book, which is a series of humorous vignettes, each of which builds slowly, through accumulation of layer on layer of detail, through several pages. Most of them concern bicycling, genial commentary on German culture from the point of view of a British tourist, or situation-comedy-like depictions of interpersonal interactions between the characters.

    Oregon, 1927: Twelve-year-old Louise Pearson wants to fly. Her mother doesn't think it's ladylike; her best friend George Graham doesn't think it's safe. 
    But Louise doesn't feel safe on the ground. Her mother seems to be holding her at arm's length. George is preoccupied with a religious identity crisis. Worst of all, terrifying anonymous notes keep popping up where Louise least expects them. 
    Charles Lindbergh's celebrated crossing of the Atlantic provides some much-needed distraction for a while, but as the summer goes on and the notes grow more threatening, Louise knows she needs to figure out who is targeting her… before her worst nightmares become reality.

    “I believe in pride of race and lineage and self; in pride of self so deep as to scorn injustice to other selves.“Children learn more from what you are than what you teach.”“Strive for that greatness of spirit that measures life not by its disappointments but by its possibilities.”W. E. B. Du Bois was an American sociologist, socialist, historian and Pan-Africanist civil rights activist. Born in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, Du Bois grew up in a relatively tolerant and integrated community, and after completing graduate work at the University of Berlin and Harvard, where he was the first African American to earn a doctorate, he became a professor of history, sociology, and economics at Atlanta University. Du Bois was one of the founders of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in 1909.Earlier, Du Bois had risen to national prominence as a leader of the Niagara Movement, a group of African-American activists who wanted equal rights for blacks. Du Bois and his supporters opposed the Atlanta compromise, an agreement crafted by Booker T. Washington which provided that Southern blacks would work and submit to white political rule, while Southern whites guaranteed that blacks would receive basic educational and economic opportunities. Instead, Du Bois insisted on full civil rights and increased political representation, which he believed would be brought about by the African-American intellectual elite. He referred to this group as the Talented Tenth, a concept under the umbrella of racial uplift, and believed that African Americans needed the chance for advanced education to develop their leadership.Racism was the main target of Du Bois's polemic, and he strongly protested against lynching, Jim Crow laws, and discrimination in education and employment. His cause included people of color everywhere, particularly Africans and Asians in colonies. He was a proponent of Pan-Africanism
