St Martins Pr Special, April 2000. Paper Back Paper Back. New. Walker Percy's first collection of non-fiction-written before and during the early years of his career as a novelist-<i>The Message in the Bottle</i> includes fifteen essays culled from a variety of little known magazines. The opening essay begins with the question, 'Why does man feel so sad in the twentieth century?' Percy answers by considering the day Helen Keller discovered language; and in light of Helen's revelation he makes a bold claim: 'Man became man by breaking into the daylight of language-whether by good fortune or bad fortune, whether by pure chance, the spark jumping the gap because the gap was narrow enough, or by the touch of God, it is not for me to say here.' What Percy does say here, and in each of the subsequent essays, involves man's struggle for personhood, the mysterious 'errors' of wrong metaphors ('which is the very condition of our knowing anything at all'), the quasi-prophetic function of the novelist, language as an act of symbolization, and various theories on the relationship between symbol, consciousness, existentialism, and need. Trained as a doctor, Percy's prose can gravitate toward the technical, but his talent for taking himself lightly and his ability to sum up an entire essay in a single, pithy phrase not only saves him from the philosophical trash bin but establishes him as an important literary thinker. 272 pp., St Martins Pr Special, College Station, Texas, U.S.A.: Texas A & M University - Military History Series 101, 2005. 227 Pages. Comprehensive nine page index filled with names. Bump and less than 1/4 inch tear at top of back board. No other defects noted to this tight book with a faultless interior. Through one man's career, Colt Terry, Green Beret portrays the birth and development of America's most elite fighting unit. The 10th Special Forces Group was the first of the Green Beret units. Its five hundred men, all Airborne and mostly Rangers, received extensive training in everything from specialized weapons to uncommon languages. Their primary mission was to train and lead indigenous guerrillas operating in enemy territory. Second Lieutenant Colt Terry, who had joined the 82nd Airborne in 1947, had already done this in Korea. As a volunteer in the 10th SFG, he carried on his service, working with the Montagnards in Vietnam and the Khmer in Cambodia. He fought at Pleiku, Duc Co, and Plei Me, and he ferried supplies and weapons on elephants into Cambodia. From his enlistment as a buck private in 1945 to his retirement as a lieutenant colonel in 1970, Terry served five tours in combat, trained guerrillas, and earned two combat infantry badges, a Purple Heart, and two Bronze Stars. His experiences contributed to Special Forces' expertise in ambushes and killing techniques. Even as an officer, Terry never shied away from going deep into the jungle in search of the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese Army. He personally organized a successful effort to save hundreds of men in one of Special Forces' most critical A-team camps. As one of the original Green Berets, Terry helped set the standards by which these units have become known. Anyone who has ever wondered what the Green Beerets were like during their first two decades will appreciate the riveting action and close-up detail of Terry's true-life story.

Erroneously launched fifty years into the future, six marines find themselves surrounded by desert and death in a dismal, post-apocalyptic world. The marines soon discover that a virus has wiped out most of humanity, leaving only three sects of people to roam the earth. The Enlightened are a group of psychopaths with little regard for the value of human life. The Plague, a genetically-altered and monstrous version of mankind, terrorizes the land and feasts upon everything in its path. The Forgotten is a humble sect of people that becomes the last real hope for humanity. Taking refuge with a small colony of the Forgotten, the marines struggle to find a way to reactivate the raven claw and catapult themselves back home while facing the Plague and the Enlightened, enemies devoid of any mercy. When the marines learn theres a cure for the Harbatha virus, its a race against time to find the remedy, reboot the raven claw, and make the jump back home to warn the populace before the diabolic nightmare of the future is set in motion.

When Marcus Fiesel s story of torture, abandonment, and a slow, agonizing death came to light, it was not exactly news to Holly Schlaack. She was an insider in the foster care system and Marcus s horrible experience was just an extreme example of how she knew the system could fail. Happily, Holly had also seen some success stories that were as inspiring as Marcus s story was appalling. So she set out to create a way for there to be more happy endings. This book is part of the effort. Invisible Kids tells the stories of many children and foster families. It tells them straight and backs them up with statistics and facts that show why the system works, why it doesn t, and where it needs help. It describes the special program Holly created for early identification of red flags in the lives infants and toddlers. It details how this program, ProKids Building Blocks, is making a difference, with specialized training and home visitation checklists that assist in objectifying warning signs that might otherwise go unnoticed. It also identifies more than a dozen ways, large and small, anyone can apply to make a difference. When stories reach the news, an enraged public often jumps to conclusions or springs to solutions that are superficial and do not take into account the real issues. Invisible Kids goes in-depth so practical approaches and real solutions can surface. It is too easy to think that all children have a reasonably happy childhood. Sadly, we learn, some children have no childhood at all. In this day and age, this is neither necessary, nor acceptable. If you care about children, here are ways to put your caring into action.
