To ebb is human, to flow divine. Our main character, Thomas Burke, goes by the nickname Figas, a math prodigy who specializes in prediction theory. When he learns that the tea grown in his childhood home has become of extreme value, he predicts that multinational corporations will swoop in and wrestle control of the tea operations from the gentle islanders. Figas sails with Capt. Martin aboard the Lady Slipper, reaching Green Island on the morning of the biggest festival of the year. It isnt long before the tea master, Uncle Sun, sweeps Figas and his perfect prediction model over the threshold. Potential threats are forgotten, as Figas becomes reacquainted with the main character of the story, the island of Viridis. Across Teagates swinging bridge, the traditional way of tea still prospers. Hidden within the simple lifestyle lies the center of the world, where time stops for tea. Mirroring the ruthless Dutch East Indian Company, which controlled the tea and spice trade for two hundred years, the ACUGO Corporation unleashes a plot to take control of the islands precious export. Put on the kettle, and cozy up to a nice cup of tea and watch as the islanders use a mixture of Upaya, (skillful means) and humor to resist the outside forces that threaten them. Viridis, also known as Green Island, is a tiny fi ctional nation founded in the 12th century by a mixed-race crew whose ship was blown off course while returning from Canton. Thomas Burke, descendant of an island founder, left home to pursue a career in mathematics, specializing in prediction theory; Viridians call him Figas, patois for Figures. Now, a foundation director has tapped him to return and warn the gentle islanders that Viridis teamore expensive per ounce than goldis in danger of attracting greedy attention. When an occupying force takes over Viridis, Figas and the locals face an enormous challenge: how to fi nd an island way of protecting themselves. They call on sacrifi ce, patience, showmanship and the spirit of the islandand readers will join the cheering section. In his accomplished debut novel, Seiler deftly sketches memorable, diverse characters while drawing on fascinating historical background. Witty, idiomatic dialogue provides many pithy lines: a fox is a wolf who sends fl owers; The Buddha would play viola.Its the middle way. The opening setupnot to mention the novels charm, wit and underlying seriousnessrecalls The Mouse That Roared by Leonard Wibberley, but this islike Sighing Woman Teaa unique and fl avorful blend, by turns comic, poignant, philosophical and romantic. As the book progresses, it gets tighter, funnier and more deeply emotional. Seiler never condescends to his islanders; they may act in comical ways, but they, the island and their tea are to be taken seriously. Nor are the invaders uniformly evil: An Irish soldiers good heart makes an excellent counterpoint to the blockheaded Cmdr. Prescott. Seiler nicely handles the islanders tricky maneuvers to outwit the invaders, holding enough back for suspense and providing several well-done set pieces that reveal the islanders gifts with satisfying payoffs. Steeped in the charm and traditions of tea drinking and underlaid with serious thought about compassion, this novel is simply wonderful. A delight to read from start to finish. Kirkus Reviews

The book Why Did You Come If You Leave Again? is an ethnographers personal account of the five years he spent in one of the remotest parts of Africa. In the authors comprehensive monograph (eight volumes published by Schwabe) about the Anyuak, a little-known tribe in South Sudan, there was no space left for a portrait of the person who did the fieldwork, his professional and personal itinerary, his experiences and attitudes, his relationship with the local peoplelet alone for all the adventures he lived when crossing the wilderness and when struggling to stay alive.

The travel autobiography sheds light on the long and tedious process of ethnographic fieldwork; it is both personal and profound, varying between moments of actions and reflections and eventually leading to an intimate encounter with an African culture. The many riveting stories told in the book are signposts of a spiritual, psychological, philosophical, and physically exhausting expedition through arid savannah, flooded plains, and compact walls of elephant grass to the spiritual home of a courageous people who have created in the middle of wilderness a center of humanity. Though the narrative is essentially about the discovery of a foreign culture, it also relates the exploration of the ethnographers own identity in an environment that didnt offer any possibility to escape.

The book is about thirst, starvation, loneliness and lightening, sickness and death, joy and deliverance, snakes and spirits, shadow, spittle and footprints, and eventually about the authors quest for meaning, beauty, and understanding of the world. The memoir tells a saga about forlornness, hope, and achievement, and last but not least, growing friendships as the only reward for struggle and pain. The researchers autobiography is captivating for the soul and the mind. It is funny, sad, informative, inspiring, and poetic.

While Joseph Dobbs Bishop was serving in Louisiana with the 23rd Connecticut Volunteer Infantry, he wrote letters ceaselessly to his wife and children. In several ways, his correspondence is typical of Civil War soldiers-he sends news of his comrades, he mentions his duties (he was a musician as well as an infantryman), he observes the landscape, complains about weather, illness, boredom, and homesickness, and longs for more letters from his wife. But Bishop's letters go beyond typical to remarkable. He shows conflicting feelings about the war as time passes, he expresses startling opinions about slavery and emancipation, and above all, he fills his pages with passion for his spouse. Indeed, his correspondence goes beyond romantic, such that it might even be called erotic and hence a complete surprise to the modern audience. Bishop's letters are tragic too, so there is a complete range of emotions to appreciate here. In short, the war is not the point of these soldier's letters; their point is the soldier's heart.

It never occurred to me to do otherwise even though my life had basically stopped. The Help Chronicles was written as a testament to the time I spent helping my family members and how I learned the varied definitions of this small four-letter word. It was a trying and sad time for me, but the help I provided for them showed me the difference I made in their lives and how grateful they were to me. Though they didn't ask, they accepted all of the help I could give them.

Through scripture the Lord sends us his Word to heal the sick, to guide and direct His children who are lost and wandering, to set free those in bondage, and to comfort those who are grieving. He implores us to give hope to our neighbors who are on the verge of despair and to renew those whose hearts are broken. Finally, He guides us to bring peace to those whose lives are filled with chaos, fear and anxiety, and to accompany those who feel lonely. Flames of Faith offers daily inspiring scripture passages and reflections for your everyday life. They will motivate and encourage faith and help Christians build a daily habit of meditating on scripture.

A Chinese poet once said, To re-create something in words is like being alive twice. In a very real sense I have found this to be true as I have been compiling this record of my parents life. As missionaries in India from 1923-1960 they had written regularly to me and other family members in the United States. In addition, my father wrote many informative circular letters to his supporting churches. Unfortunately, some letters were lost, but in the end there was a suitcase full of correspondence. I couldnt throw them away. They were my meaningful link to my parents. So last summer, with the encouragement of my husband and children, I bought a laptop computer and started writing this story as a tribute to the remarkable and dedicated life of my parents, concentrating particularly on their life together as missionaries, followed by 17 years in Home Missions. In the process I have re-lived those early years and true to the Chinese poets words, I feel that I have been alive twice. The reader will notice capitalization of certain words in my fathers letters, where capitals are not customarily used. I believe it was his way of emphasizing words which he considered important.

Footprints in Time follows thirty-two generations of the Bryan family, dating as far back as the year 907. The book begins with the Comtes de Flanders (Counts of Flanders), who first settled in a small village in the Champagne Region of France after fleeing from Viking attacks on their homeland of Flanders. The Comes de Briennes, as they became known, lived in France for over nine generations. The family later migrated into Wales, then England, then Ireland. In 1650, the Bryans were deported from Ireland to the Colony of Virginia by Oliver Cromwell during the English invasion of Ireland. Col. William Smith Bryan of the Irish Rebel Forces and a direct descendent of the Irish king, Brian Boru, was viewed by the English as a threat to their dominance over Ireland. The book traces the early days of the Bryan family in Colonial America to the present. The family line includes French and English royalty, knights, lords, political leaders, explorers, religious leaders, pioneers, salt-of-the-earth Americans, and even a renowned pirate.

To James Madison Davis, my great great grandfather, born in Alabama in 1835, I dedicate this family photo project. James M. Davis is a person I never knew, but of whom I've heard much, and through documentation have pieced together some details of his life. What is most remarkable is the fact that though born enslaved, he apparently always had dreams for freedom, for the acquisition of land, to be the support of his family, and to educate his children. He stole himself away from his slave owner at sometime between 1862 and 1863, and from oral accounts given by his children and his statement to the 1910 census takers, he joined the (UA) Union Army. Thank you great, great grandfather James Madison Davis for your fortitude, your faith, and your persistence in pursuing your dream.

Always loved to think about everything I could think about. If I had to believe in something, I had to prove it was the wise and correct thing, and also, it had to work out perfectly with everything else just as in math. (Anything we believe in mathwe had to prove it before). I notice that there are a lot of problems in the world because there is not enough understanding. Love, for example, disappears in front of our eyes if there is not enough understanding. I thought that love and understanding are a great pair. They will never get divorced. You guessed it: because there is understanding! My aim is to help people think more and try to understand more and more before we say or do something that can hurt others.

This book is organized into three parts, separated by major milestones in gaining programming knowledge. Part 1 shows how to apply basic concepts of programming. It goes through the details of writing programs using freely available editor and compiler software. It shows how to store data in variables for use in calculations, and how to produce nice-looking output. These chapters teach all that is needed to create simple interactive programs that gather input, perform calculations based on the input, and display output using calculated results. Part 2 adds elements of logic to the simple programs of part 1. Ways are presented for making programs selectively use different sets of instructions, based on circumstances. Ways to get a program to repeat itself are also presented, allowing things to be done more than once without duplicating the steps. These chapters teach what is needed to create more sophisticated programs with branching and looping logic, such as would be required for computer games and almost every other useful program. Part 3 introduces the powerful concept of single variables that can store multiple values all at the same time. Array variables can store multiple values of the same type, and are suitable for dealing with lists, such as lists of test scores, high temperatures, or names of students. Object variables can store multiple values of related information, and are suitable for dealing with data records, such as student accounts with names, IDs, and addresses. Chapters 13-15 introduce advanced applications of arrays and objects, for the purpose of first exposure to some advanced computer science concepts, but primarily to provide an opportunity to apply the language elements learned in parts 1 and 2.
