The Innocent Days Of A North Dakota Farm Boy from the Author: Carmen James Lee. It was a time of innocence for author Carmen James Lee, growing up on a rural farm in North Dakota in the 1950s. In The Innocent Days of a North Dakota Farm Boy, he shares a nostalgic collection of stories telling about his experiences as a child during a much simpler time. In this memoir, he narrates how he walked in the fresh snow to milk the cows with a kerosene lantern in his hand, what it was like attending a one-room school, and how he sawed a huge hay stack in half with a rope made of barbwire. Recalling a fun-filled youth, Lee tells about his challenges, his dream, his successes, and his failures. The Innocent Days of a North Dakota Farm Boy shares real-life stories of a North Dakota boy growing up and experiencing these and many more fun and exciting things—from plowing with a tiny, two-bottom plow behind the Ford tractor to marching in the school band at the Indianapolis 500 car race.

Running Free from the Author: Richard Askwith. Shortlisted for the 2015 Thwaites Wainwright prize for nature writing Richard Askwith wanted more. Not convinced running had to be all about pounding pavements, buying fancy kit and racking up extreme challenges, he looked for ways to liberate himself. His solution: running through muddy fields and up rocky fells, running with his dog at dawn, running because he's being (voluntarily) chased by a pack of bloodhounds, running to get hopelessly, enjoyably lost, running fast for the sheer thrill of it. Running as nature intended. Part diary of a year running through the Northamptonshire countryside, part exploration of why we love to run without limits, Running Free is an eloquent and inspiring account of running in a forgotten, rural way, observing wildlife and celebrating the joys of nature. An opponent of the commercialisation of running, Askwith offers a welcome alternative, with practical tips (learned the hard way) on how to both start and keep running naturally – from thawing frozen toes to avoiding a stampede when crossing a field of cows. Running Free is about getting back to the basics of why we love to run.

The Pastor Who Learned To Dance from the Author: Howard S. Fuller. “Neither ascent nor decline. Except for the point, the still point, here would be no dance and there is only the dance.” (T. S. Eliot. Four Quartets) The metaphor of the dance is one I have chosen to describe the movement of the Spirit in my life as pastor in a small Protestant congregation in northern California during 1978–88. I dance a light and joyful dance when I remember that God in Christ is the still point of the dance around which the various parts of myself arrange themselves. As the people of God and I dance together we become a healing energy field in which the Holy Spirit powerfully moves . I have written this book in gratitude for the gift of the presence of the Christ as the creator of our dance together with all creation. It is a book for pastors and for students in training for church ministry, but it is for lovers, parents, business executives, and teachers as well. I invite you, my brothers and sisters, to dance with me. From a colleague: Your book is very good; very readable, very insightful and sometimes profound. I appreciate your open (and courageous) description of your personal spiritual journey, also your description of Psychosynthesis and its possible manner of application to one’s self and to the activity of the Church. . . . I think . . . that your work could be particularly helpful as a teaching tool for ministers and Seminarians. THE PASTOR WHO LEARNED TO DANCE: HOW I LEARNED TO BE MYSELF IN THE CHURCH by Howard S. Fuller
