Courland is an entity that no longer exists. With the Gulf of Riga to the north, the Baltic to the west and Lithuania at its southern border, and now part of modern Latvia, the region was occupied by Nazi Germany and returned to Soviet Russia after the war, remaining largely inaccessible until 1991. It is now a nowhere land of wide skies and forests, deserted beaches, ruined castles and ex-KGB prisons. For years Jean-Paul Kauffmann has been irresistibly drawn to this buffer between the Germanic and Slav worlds. His digressive travels at the wheel of a Skoda become an investigation into the whereabouts of a former lover, a search for an excavator of tombs, and a journey in the footsteps of Louis XVIII, for whom Courland was once a place of exile.

It might be hard to believe, but there was a time before TVs, computers, iPhones, and iPads. You may think that at worst this sounds unbelievable, and that at best it seems boring—so what did kids do to occupy their time? In The Journey, author Graham Tyner shares what it was like growing up in the forties and fifties—and across nine thousand miles—in America, a time when the nation’s spirits were high and when kids went outside to play! As a tribute to his children and grandchildren, Tyner offers a family history before providing a window into what a wonderful time it was to be a kid in our glorious country when he was growing up. He also chronicles his adventures acrossAmerica, where he moved eleven times and traveled a combined nine thousand miles while attending ten different schools. With so many gadgets and distractions, it is all too easy to lose the importance of these simple but remarkable times. Yet this period was a wonderful time to be a kid, and even today, its lessons can offer the next generation a model for the future.

About the Cover This simple sketch is over 100 years old. It hung in the farm house I was raised in as a small boy. The artist was a relative on the Jackson side of my family tree. The original sketch now hangs in the cabin where I live. My grandmother tried to explain the meaning of the sketch to me when I was eight years old, but it was way over my head. Now that I have entered the final chapter of my long journey, I look at the sketch a lot differently than I did when my grandmom talked to me about it so long ago. The old man is not only old but very wise. The sweet, mellow smell from his pipe is now an integral part of him. The fragrance of Spring completely surrounds the young girl. As she tells him about his upcoming long journey, you can see the slight smile on his face. He knows his next journey will be soon and very short. I suspect that he will give her very little advice. He knows that unraveling the mysteries and finding your own answers are what make our long journeys worthwhile. Poppy About the Stories You may find some of them are sad, some funny, and some a little mysterious. However, I hope they rekindle and stir emotions you have hidden deep inside you-for a very long time.

Based on the memoir of Stephen Norton Van Blaricom, An Uncommon Journey details the origins of Dawson County, Montana, in the late 1800s. The oldest of nine children, Van Blaricom left home at the age of thirteen and worked for many of northeastern Montana's earliest ranches. After working for the Northern Pacific Railroad, he married Maud Griselle, one of the first female telegraphers for the Northern Pacific. More than a family history, An Uncommon Journey tells the personal stories of many of the first settlers of this last West: buffalo hunters, cattlemen, train drivers, early tradesmen, saloonkeepers, scallywags, and lawmen. This is the story of many of the long-forgotten first settlers of old Dawson County and how they met the challenges of a country that was then primitive and remote at its best and deadly at its worst. For all of them it was, indeed, An Uncommon Journey.

Bonnie, a naive and content twelve-year-old girl, had the life she knew tragically destroyed. Everything familiar was taken from her, except a few letters from a mysterious grandfather she had never met. Orphaned, she was placed into oppressive child labor. Bonnie took her anger, fears, and feelings of rejection, isolation, and hopelessness, converting them into brazen, naive, misguided determination. She was inspired by the novels of Twain, Stevenson, and Cooper. Bonnie prepared herself with the questionable knowledge she had gleaned from the pages of the great authors' works. In 1886, twelve-year-old Bonnie fled her bondage and sets out on an implausible quest to find her grandfather. How far will Bonnie's determination take her? The author endeavored to present historical facts and historical people blended into an adventurous fictional story. The author tried to present a realistic glimpse into the late nineteenth century. It is often hard to recognize fact from fiction.

The oceans are some of the last untamed frontiers on our planet.

From traffickers, smugglers and pirates to vigilante conservationists, stowaways and seabound abortion-providers, Ian Urbina introduces us to the inhabitants of this hidden world and their risk-fraught lives. Through their extraordinary stories, he uncovers a globe-spanning network of crime and exploitation that emanates from the fishing, oil and shipping industries - but to which all of us are connected.

The Newbery Medal–winning author of The Hero and the Crown brings the Robin Hood legend to vivid life. Young Robin Longbow, subapprentice forester in the King’s Forest of Nottingham, must contend with the dislike of the Chief Forester, who bullies Robin in memory of his popular father. But Robin does not want to leave Nottingham or lose the title to his father’s small tenancy, because he is in love with a young lady named Marian—and keeps remembering that his mother too was gentry and married a common forester. Robin has been granted a rare holiday to go to the Nottingham Fair, where he will spend the day with his friends Much and Marian. But he is ambushed by a group of the Chief Forester’s cronies, who challenge him to an archery contest . . . and he accidentally kills one of them in self-defense. He knows his own life is forfeit. But Much and Marian convince him that perhaps his personal catastrophe is also an opportunity: an opportunity for a few stubborn Saxons to gather together in the secret heart of Sherwood Forest and strike back against the arrogance and injustice of the Norman overlords.
