            Gullah Redemption presents a vivid description of a unique group within the African American Culture. The author who is Gullah gives a spell binding account of his miraculous conversion to Christ. Unlike his ancestors who were forced to listen to slave masters as they read the ho...ly scriptures to justify use of free labor while maintaining the obedience of many docile captives. Brown suggests that some 75% of Blacks living in the United States remain unaware of his one of a kind group. The Gullah living on seacoast islands bordering mainly South Carolina and Georgia represent a people having the purest bloodline of all African slaves brought to North America in wooden ships. While proud knowledge of the blood of a people is very important, most important is theological knowledge that the blood of Jesus links and binds together every born-again human for time and eternity. In our present age of hate mongering, division, lawlessness, and fear, we would do well to acknowledge words Holy Spirit gave to Apostle Paul in his letter written around A. D. 40-60 to the Church in Galatians 3:28-29. There is neither Jew, Greek, Gullah, Russian, Italian, or Hispanic in Christ. We are all by faith Abraham's seed and heirs according to the promise. Sandwiched between Chapters 3 and 11 is the book written in 2006, Call Me Gullah: An American Heritage . Included at the end of this work are Pastor Brown's sermon notes from a message delivered October 6, 2019 entitled: A Universal Gospel of Inclusion .

            Seagoing may be the world's finest, most intensely rigorous education, however informal, unstructured, or lightly documented. Capt. Eric F. Schiller, a retired supertanker captain and now notorious pirate bar owner, sheds some light on an overlooked profession in these memoirs, h...ighlighting working at sea often times will provide extraordinary and valuable life experiences. Beginning with his time as an officer in training aboard the SS American Liberty, his adventures start at a pier near downtown Hong Kong one sultry Southeast Asia summer morning in August 1973. In the summer of 1990, he sails from Honolulu, Hawaii, for Singapore's Jurong Shipyard, Master of an old single-boiler steam tanker built in Newport News with lots of miles and lots of problems. Rumor had it that the steel plates the tanker was built from were recycled WWII tanks. The main condenser was leaking badly, and with saltwater entering the steam cycle, the ship and it's crew made their way westward chasing rain clouds to collect water on deck to be used as boiler feed water. As he relives his adventures, Captain Schiller shares thoughts on evolution, what it means to be human, and why a lifetime at sea has convinced him there is a God.

            By Kagge, Erling

            The secret to a good life, seen from the ice, is to keep your joys simple. 'Erling Kagge transforms and consoles us' Alain de Botton ____________________________Erling Kagge was the first man in history to reach all of the Earth's poles by foot - the North, the South, and the sum...mit of Everest. In Philosophy for Polar Explorers he brings together the wisdom and expertise he has gained from the expeditions that have taken him to the limits of the earth, and of human endurance.This is the essential guide to the art of exploration. In sixteen meditative but practical lessons - from cultivating an optimistic outlook, to getting up at the right time, to learning to find focus and comfort in solitude - Erling Kagge reveals what survival in the most extreme conditions can teach us about how to lead a meaningful life. Wherever we may be headed. ____________________________'As an explorer Erling Kagge is world class; as a writer he is equally gifted' Sir Ranulph Fiennes 'Erling Kagge is a philosophical adventurer - or perhaps an adventurous philosopher' The New York Times 'An author for our noisy times, full of a rare and deeply redemptive languor and perspective' Alain de Botton

            Almost every young lad, lying in the clover, daydreaming at the sky, at some point thinks ... If only I could fly! The author was no exception. The mysteries of flight have intrigued mankind since the earliest cave dweller first noticed birds. The desire to fly - to join the bird...s - has enrichened our mythologies with mystical winged beings that until modern times existed only in fantasy. Philip Moynihan's brief overview of the early evolution of flight sets the stage for accounts of his greater than three decades of flying adventures that have taken him and his wife all over North America. By opening each chapter with a poem, the author helps non-flying readers acquire a visceral sense of what it feels like to soar among the clouds, suspended in space. His illuminating anecdotes will help you feel as though you are sitting alongside him as a co-pilot and fellow Sky Walker. From that young lad lying in the clover on a balmy afternoon, immersed in thoughts of flying, the author has come to realize those fantasies, as he and his wife have piloted their Mooney on incredible journeys to spectacular places throughout North America. You'll enjoy their adventures in Spirit of the Sky Walkers.

            A history of the first race to Antarctica that weaves the great polar discoveries of the nineteenth century with scientific breakthroughs of the modern era Antarctica, the ice kingdom hosting the South Pole, looms large in the human imagination. The secrets of this vast frozen de...sert have long tempted explorers, but its brutal climate and glacial shores notoriously resist human intrusion. Land of Wondrous Cold tells a gripping story of the pioneer nineteenth-century voyages, when British, French, and American commanders raced to penetrate Antarctica's glacial rim for unknown lands beyond. These intrepid Victorian explorers - James Ross, Dumont D'Urville, and Charles Wilkes - laid the foundation for our current understanding of Terra Australis Incognita. Today, the white continent poses new challenges, as scientists race to uncover Earth's climate history recorded in the south polar ice and ocean floor, and to monitor the increasing instability of the Antarctic ice cap, which threatens inundation of coastal cities worldwide. Interweaving the breakthrough research of the modern Ocean Drilling Program with the dramatic discovery tales of their Victorian-era forerunners, Gillen D'Arcy Wood describes Antarctica's role in a planetary drama of plate tectonics, climate change, and species evolution stretching back more than thirty million years. An original, multifaceted portrait of the polar continent emerges, illuminating our profound connection to Antarctica in its past, present, and future incarnations. A deep-time history of monumental scale, Land of Wondrous Cold brings the remotest of worlds within close reach'an Antarctica vital to both planetary history and human fortunes.

            Charles Kingsford Smith was the most commanding flyer of the golden age of aviation. In three short years, he broke records with his astounding and daring voyages- the first trans-Pacific flight from America to Australia, the first circumnavigation around the equator, the first n...on-stop crossing of the Australian mainland. He did it all with such courage, modesty and charm that Australia and the world fell in love with him. He became a national hero, 'Our Smithy'. Yet his achievements belied a traumatic past. He had witnessed the horror of World War I - first as a soldier at Gallipoli, later as a combat pilot with the Royal Flying Corps - and, like so many of his generation, he bore physical and emotional scars. The public saw the derring-do; only those close to him knew the anxious man who pushed himself to the edge of health and sanity. In November 1935, Kingsford Smith's plane crashed and he was lost at sea near Burma, his body never to be recovered. This brilliant work from one of Australia's foremost biographers reveals the complicated, tumultuous life of a fascinating figure, who pursued his obsession to the greatest heights of fame and catastrophe.
