    At once naturalistic epic, captivity narrative, road novel, and transcendental gospel, Steinbeck’s, The Grapes of Wrath is perhaps the most American of American classics. Although it follows the movement of thousands of men and women and the transformation of an entire nation during the Dust Bowl migration of the 1930s, The Grapes of Wrath is also the story of one Oklahoma farm family, the Joads, who are forced to travel west to the promised land of California.

    Looking for Alaska is Peter's account of eighteen months spent traveling over twenty thousand miles in tiny bush planes, on snow machines and snowshoes, in fishing boats and kayaks, on the Alaska Marine Highway and the Haul Road. Hearing and living the amazing stories of many Alaskans from Barrow to Craig, Seward to Deering, and everywhere in between, Peter gets to know this place in a way that only he can.

    Not the most interesting author for the read but over all very good book. Makes me wish I could live in Alaska live the family did in the book. Worth your time

    In the space of 400 years, Western man methodically set out to explore and map the entire earth. During some of the most dangerous expeditions ever mounted, an extraordinary group of determined men forced passages through vast oceans, dark jungles, and withering deserts. Never has their like been seen since. What drove these soldiers, sailors, and civilians to leave the comforts of civilized life and face the horrors of shipwreck, starvation, cannibals, and disease?

    Please dont waste your money on this book like I did. There are lot better adventure books out there. In fact on a scale of adventure books its the worst one in my library of over 200 books.

    Investing is simple, but never easy. We carry a lot of investment baggage, including hot tips from friends and the financial media, as well as complicated financial recommendations from Wall Street "experts." Yet the biggest obstacle we face is the tendency to outsmart ourselves. In order to overcome this obstacle, you need to follow straightforward strategies that will consistently push your portfolio ahead of the pack by an additional three to four percent annually.

    Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1884), by Mark Twain is one of the truly great American novels, beloved by children, adults, and literary critics alike. The book tells the story of "Huck" Finn, his friend Jim, and their journey down the Mississippi River on a raft. Both are on the run: Huck from his drunk and abusive father, and Jim as a runaway slave.

    It's easy for American Christians to forget how Jesus said his followers would actually live, what their new lifestyle would actually look like. They would, he said, leave behind security, money, convenience, even family for him. They would abandon everything for the gospel. They would take up their crosses daily...BUT WHO DO YOU KNOW WHO LIVES LIKE THAT? DO YOU?

    Timothy says: "American Indeed"
    "Radical: taking back your faith from the American"
    Overall

    Great book, causes you too think. Life changing, has some very good ideas. If it was applied it could change the world.
