This book is the transcribed memoirs of Dr. David Gochenour, a young Mennonite from a traditional farming family in the Shenandoah Valley at the beginning of the 20th century. He became the first in the family to leave Mennonitism, to get a college degree, to marry outside the faith, to travel abroad. But his marriage was wrecked by his wife's morphine addiction, and Dr. Gochenour left on six years of self-imposed exile in the American colonies of Alaska, Panama, and Philippines.

Life is a jumble of disconnected events that sometimes defy reasonable explanation. Donna Noble takes the holy Word of God and marries it to her life experiences, education, and study of the Scriptures to try to help others make sense of the things that happen in our lives. Share her walk in the form of a daily reflection that will point out the sometimes obvious things we miss in our hurried lives these days, how the Lord reaches out to us and tries to get our attention, reviewing our own salvation and progress in the difficult process of sanctification, and gives a prayer to send us out into our day with something to reflect on. Come and join the journey as we all try to make sense of this crazy event we call life.

With Nansen in the North

With Nansen in the North ebook ISBN: 1108041507

Fredrik Hjalmar Johansen (1867-1913) was a Norwegian Polar explorer. He accompanied Nansen on the Fram Expedition of 1893-6 and took part in a number of explorations of the Svalbard archipelago. He later participated in Roald Amundsen's expedition to the South Pole in 1910-12, although he was written out of the official history following a bitter dispute with Amundsen. Johansen's account of Nansen's Fram Expedition appeared in Norwegian in 1898, and this English translation was published the following year. It describes Nansen's attempt to drift north in a deliberately ice-bound ship and then ski to the North Pole, and reveals the dangers and challenges faced by the crew during their three-year journey. Although they did not reach the Pole, they set a new furthest-north record that stood for several years. Nansen's own account of the expedition, Farthest North, is also available as part of the Cambridge Library Collection.

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

This classic novel of childhood is set in fictional St. Petersburg, a town based on Mark Twain’s hometown of Hannibal, Missouri. Twain’s recounting of Tom Sawyer’s many escapades is by turns nostalgic, satiric, wise, and hilarious. While this novel is often considered mainly as the precursor to Twain’s great work The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, it is abundantly worth considering for its own deft and loving transformation of autobiography into fiction. In addition to the full text of the novel based on the first American edition, complete with a selection of the original illustrations by True Williams, this Broadview edition provides a wide range of appendices that place the novel in the context of 1840s rural America as well as 1870s literary America. These include materials on the composition and marketing of Tom Sawyer, selections from other “boy books” of the period, and historical documents relating to temperance, children’s literature, and schools.

Christopher Priest's artful sleight of hand when it comes to manipulating the experience of his books and notions of what is real reaches a peak in this novel that accounts the trials and tribulations of a group of people who have escaped into a utopian shared virtual reality known as Wessex. It is a world engineered to give them their every desire. But when one woman becomes subject to the violent attentions of a man who feels that she is everything he desires she must decide to fight back. Obsession and abuse of power can cross from the real world to the imagined all too easily. Thought by some to have been instrumental in the inspiration of the film INCEPTION, A DREAM OF WESSEX is a classic in the literature of virtual realities and remains one of Chris Priest's most highly regarded novels.

From an early age Roald Amundsen (1872-1928) was determined to be an explorer. Having gained valuable experience on the Belgian Antarctic Expedition (1897-9), he resolved to conquer the North-West Passage. After three years, using a small fishing vessel, the Gjøa, and only six crew, Amundsen succeeded in reaching Nome, Alaska. First published in Norwegian in 1907, and reissued here in its 1908 English translation, this two-volume account is copiously illustrated with photographs. Volume 2 begins with details of Inuit practices, including the building of snow houses, fishing, and the making of clothes. The navigation to Herschel Island, where the men spent a third winter among whaling vessels, is then recounted. One of the crew died from illness before the Gjøa reached Nome in August 1906. This volume contains a lengthy supplement by Godfred Hansen, describing the sledge journeys to map the coast of Victoria Island, and a detailed index to both volumes.
