DESCRIPTION BOOK:

“I am most grateful for two things: that I was born in North Korea, and that I escaped from North Korea.” - Yeonmi Park "One of the most harrowing stories I have ever heard - and one of the most inspiring." - The Bookseller “Park's remarkable and inspiring story shines a light on a country whose inhabitants live in misery beyond comprehension. Park's important memoir showcases the strength of the human spirit and one young woman's incredible determination to never be hungry again.” —Publishers Weekly In In Order to Live, Yeonmi Park shines a light not just into the darkest corners of life in North Korea, describing the deprivation and deception she endured and which millions of North Korean people continue to endure to this day, but also onto her own most painful and difficult memories. She tells with bravery and dignity for the first time the story of how she and her mother were betrayed and sold into sexual slavery in China and forced to suffer terrible psychological and physical hardship before they finally made their way to Seoul, South Korea—and to freedom. Park confronts her past with a startling resilience. In spite of everything, she has never stopped being proud of where she is from, and never stopped striving for a better life. Indeed, today she is a human rights activist working determinedly to bring attention to the oppression taking place in her home country. Park’s testimony is heartbreaking and unimaginable, but never without hope. This is the human spirit at its most indomitable.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

'I am most grateful for two things: that I was born in North Korea, and that I escaped from North Korea.' Yeonmi Park was not dreaming of freedom when she escaped from North Korea. She didn't even know what it meant to be free. All she knew was that she was running for her life, that if she and her family stayed behind they would die - from starvation, or disease, or even execution. This book is the story of Park's struggle to survive in the darkest, most repressive country on earth; her harrowing escape through China's underworld of smugglers and human traffickers; and then her escape from China across the Gobi desert to Mongolia, with only the stars to guide her way, and from there to South Korea and at last to freedom; and finally her emergence as a leading human rights activist - all before her 21st birthday.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

“Every single American needs to read Michael Knowles’s Speechless. I don’t mean ‘read it eventually.’ I mean: stop what you’re doing and pick up this book.” —CANDACE OWENS "The most important book on free speech in decades—read it!” —SENATOR TED CRUZ A New Strategy: We Win, They Lose The Culture War is over, and the culture lost. The Left’s assault on liberty, virtue, decency, the Republic of the Founders, and Western civilization has succeeded. You can no longer keep your social media account—or your job—and acknowledge truths such as: Washington, Jefferson, and Columbus were great men. Schools and libraries should not coach children in sexual deviance. Men don’t have uteruses. How did we get to this point? Michael Knowles of The Daily Wire exposes and diagnosis the losing strategy we have fallen for and shows how we can change course—and start winning. In the groundbreaking Speechless: Controlling Words, Controlling Minds Knowles reveals: How the “free speech absolutists” gave away the store The First Amendment does not require a value-neutral public square How the Communists figured out that their revolution could never succeed as long as the common man was attached to his own culture Where political correctness came from How, comply or resist, political correctness is a win-win game for the bad guys Why taking our stand on “freedom of speech” helps put atheism, decadence, and nonsense on the same plane with faith, virtue, and reality The real question: Will we shut down drag queen story hour, or cancel Abraham Lincoln? For 170 years the First Amendment was compatible with prayer in public school How the atheists got the Warren Court to rule their way To this day, there’s a First Amendment exception for obscenity. What exactly is the argument that perverts’ teaching toddlers to twerk is not obscene? Read Speechless: Controlling Words, Controlling Minds if you want to learn how to take the fight to the enemy.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Michael Dante played the title role in Winterhawk (1975), a Western about a legendary Blackfoot Chief’s character and his principles. In this novella sequel, he pens an ageless saga about ruthless railroad executives trying to assassinate him in order to build their railroad directly through his territory, taking the Blackfoot land without provocation. Winterhawk and his tribe remain strong as long as they can, to protect the land of their people, the land they call home, before the invasion of progress imposes itself on America. This inspiring story of a brave man, who stands up to and fight against those who have their own agenda for his land, evokes the nostalgic atmosphere of Western series that Dante frequently appeared in during American television’s Golden Era, such as Death Valley Days, The Big Valley, Daniel Boone, Custer, The Texan, Bonanza, Maverick, and Cheyenne.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

You Are Not In Control According to research, 99% of the thoughts, emotions and actions you had today are the same as the ones you had yesterday. We simply repeat things unconsciously. We think we're in control but we really are not. Our programming simply repeats things daily. You cannot fight this programming with willpower. You need to consciously reprogram it with new routines so that it works for you, rather than against you, in achieving your goals. External Results Are An Illusion. Change Yourself And Your External Results Change The default thing we try to do if we're not getting the external results we seek is to reach out and try to change the results, often without changing ourselves. Striving to create an external result that is not in alignment with who you currently are internally is really a case of chasing shadows. The reality is that the external world you see is simply a reflection of your state of consciousness. The only way to change your external world is to change yourself internally. So for the external changes you want to see in your life you need to first detail out the external goals, and then map them to internal changes you need to make in order to achieve them. With this shift in thinking, there is no need for you to get anxious about making external changes that are outside your control. You just need to focus on making the required internal changes as internal change is all within your control. Your External World Is Simply A Mirror Of You It can be difficult for you to really see yourself due to the multitude of smokescreens and the fact we humans are masters at self-deception. However an accurate way of seeing yourself is in your external circumstances. External reality acts as a mirror to enable us see what's really going on inside. This is good news because when you become aware of this law you realise all the power to change your reality lies within you. The reflection never lies, just as you cannot stand in front of a physical mirror and see a different person in your reflection. The law of correspondence is as real as gravity. Growth Is All That Matters Growth is what matters in life, not the material things we acquire. Material things can disappear in a flash but growth remains forever. If you don't try new things and deal with whatever learning curve is required then you don't grow. In This Book You'll Learn: The difference between the ego and consciousness and the role of the ego in shaping your life. How to use challenges in life as welcome tools to create a better version of yourself instead of seeing them as bad. How to use the Law of Correspondence which is always in operation in your life whether you're aware of it or not. How to transform yourself to the person who can automatically get the kind of results you want in life. How to use the power of delayed gratification to make your life easier. A step by step guide for how to create and instil positive habits and make them effortless within 30 days. How to increase your productive capacity so that you can get more done without necessarily working harder. How to use the power of giving to get the things you want in life.What to know more?

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

"Blimp, blop, blimp, bloop. Suzy gripped her sheets tightly. Was that noise coming from under her bed?" Helps Children Banish Bedtime FearsSo begins Suzy's adventure where she meets Karrit, another child, and one that lives far under her bed. The two children banish their bedtime fears and become best friends by treating each other the way that they want to be treated.A Fear of Monsters is CommonA fear of monsters under the bed is common with children of all ages, starting with a vague sense of the unknown with younger toddlers and graduating to perhaps a more solid image in the minds of older children.The Monster on Top of the Bed flips the idea around, like the famous Disney Movie Monsters Inc., and bases the story on the concept that it's the monsters that are actually afraid of the children.The Children Model The Golden RuleIn this beautifully illustrated book we meet two children--Suzy and Karrit, and we discover that sometimes things are not always what they seem and when the monster fears the child, we come to see a different perspective on misunderstandings and ignorance.We also discover that it is easy to misinterpret the meanings of words and actions, when Karrit explains to Suzy that certain things she says and does, frightens him.Although the words, "The Golden Rule" never appear in the book, the way the two children treat each other as though they would like to be treated enable the two of them to work together to work out their differences. A friendship forms, and a new light is shed upon them both when they realize that maybe they aren't so different from each other after all.A Mantra that Banishes Nighttime FearsWhen things get scary, both children use Grandmom's mantra, which is highly effective in banishing monsters, "“You're welcome to stay until I say, 'Nay!' Then it's time to go, and you can't say, 'no.'”This is an empowering bedtime story. The multimedia edition contains a link to an .mp4 file that features the same audio tracks in the CD version. Children can listen to the story being read by four narrators who read the story in English, Spanish and Italian. There are page turning sounds to let the child know when to turn the page. There are slight differences between the words in CD version and the Kindle version. Children like the challenge of finding the differences.In addition to reading the story, the multimedia kindle edition also contains bonus material, including an interview with the illustrator, and other stories and poems written by the author.Order Copies For Yourself and Your Friends...It's perfect for three to six-year olds, and six-to-twelve year olds (who are sometimes still afraid of monsters) find the story charming and enjoy reading it to their younger siblings.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Kelowna, BC is sometimes referred to as the "Palm Springs" of Canada, and the Okanagan Valley is often referred to as the "Napa Valley of the North." If you have ever wondered what it would actually be like to live in Kelowna, or anywhere in the Okanagan for that matter, then this book is your gateway to that reality. Moving To Kelowna is not a tourist guide, although certain portions could certainly be considered as such. Relocating to a new city can sometimes be a traumatic experience. Our goal is to provide newcomers with the objective information they will need so that their transition to Kelowna can be made with confidence. We do this by providing facts, and a few experienced opinions, about why so many people want to live here. Being armed with no-nonsense, well-researched information will make any newcomer's transition a more stress-free, fun and enjoyable one. Cities everywhere have their pros and cons, however it is rare to have the cons exposed in order to fully enlighten potential newcomers. We include not only the benefits of moving to Kelowna, but also the challenges because we believe that being honestly informed before relocating, will not only allow for a smooth transition, but will also produce happier citizens. Get Unbiased Answers to These, and Many More Important Questions: - Is it true that Kelowna has a Sunshine Tax? - How do the local schools rank? - Will I be able to find a job? - Will my family be safe? - Is the weather really as good as they say? - Give me a break, what are the challenges to living in Kelowna? - Is there available and affordable daycare for my children? - Will I be able to access good healthcare when I need it? - How does the rental market compare to other cities in Canada? - Is Kelowna business friendly? - What are 'the' best things to do for fun in the area? We have analyzed research from hundreds of reliable sources to create this one-of-a-kind. . . no-nonsense guide. There is no other single source of information that tackles all of these questions on the minds of potential newcomers. The authors are two enthusiastic but realistic residents who have enjoyed life in Kelowna for more than 25 years. We have raised our families here, operated our businesses here, and we plan to retire here. We close our publication with the best business referrals that we could muster. These are trusted business people that will help you settle in once you arrive; and, they will give you a discount, to boot If you want to make the most informed decision you can before relocating to Kelowna, then Moving To Kelowna is arguably the most convenient and valuable investment you can make.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Synopsis Rest Stop is a 250 page realistic novel based on real characters I knew while I served my time in prison. It is about the convicts I lived with on a daily basis. The book starts off in prison and gives insight of the living conditions. It tells of the games that are needed in order to survive. It explains the brotherhood that forms between cell mates and the cliques you become part of, not by choice but out of necessity. Following a fight and a stabbing, the four inmates who are held responsible are being transported from a minimum security location to the main prison when they escape. The escape convicts come up with a plan to take over a rest-area on Interstate 15. It was just a few miles from Las Vegas. They figured that the people going to Vegas would have lots of cash on them. Their plan was to rob them and use the money to get out of the country. It is a long way from Oregon State Penitentiary to Las Vegas. A big part of the story takes place on the trip to get to the rest stop, with robbery, murder and rape along the way. The driving force behind the story is the dialog and vivid thought process, not only from the convicts but from the victims. Each chapter gives insight to the mind set and words of the escaped convicts, along with the Warden, the State Police and the Federal agent who is always just one step behind the inmates. The novel begins with a thrilling, fast paced opening. It holds the excited pace up to an unforgettably tense conclusion. Each chapter ends in a poem I wrote while in prison and coincides with the story. The epilogue leaves room for a sequel for a second book.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

SUNDAY TIMES TOP 10 BESTSELLER Dear Leader contains astonishing new insights about North Korea which could only be revealed by someone working high up in the regime. It is also the gripping story of how a member of the inner circle of this enigmatic country became its most courageous, outspoken critic. Jang Jin-sung held one of the most senior ranks in North Korea's propaganda machine, helping tighten the regime's grip over its people. Among his tasks were developing the founding myth of North Korea, posing undercover as a South Korean intellectual and writing epic poems in support of the dictator, Kim Jong-il. Young and ambitious, his patriotic work secured him a bizarre audience with Kim Jong-il himself, thus granting him special status as one of the 'Admitted'. This meant special food provisions, a travel pass and immunity from prosecution and harm. He was privy to state secrets, including military and diplomatic policies, how the devastating 'Scrutiny' was effected, and the real position of one of the country's most powerful, elusive men, Im Tong-ok. Because he was praised by the Dear Leader himself, he had every reason to feel satisfied with his lot and safe. Yet he could not ignore his conscience, or the disparity between his life and that of those he saw starving on the street. After breaking security rules, Jang Jin-sung, together with a close friend, was forced to flee for his life: away from lies and deceit, towards truth and freedom.

It was only supposed to be a short visit. It turned into a love affair. Melanie White is in trouble. Young, unmarried, with no resources to speak of, she's forced to flee home and hide out with her aunt on a ranch in a western mining town. She's just passing through on her way farther West, and it's a good thing, too: she can't stand the ranch owner. He's rowdy, immature...and undeniably attractive. David Tanner has his life just the way he likes it: he does what he wants, when he wants, and nobody can tell him any different--least of all, his former nanny's niece Melanie, who likes books more than people. But when a family emergency forces Melanie and David to work together, she discovers that there's more to him than meets the eye. And he finds out that life as a bachelor may not be what he likes after all. Contains mild language and sensual content within marriage.
