Conceived in the best of times, executed in the worst of times, Chicago’s Century of Progress Exposition, 1933-1934, was highly criticized, but none-the-less a phenomenal success. First proposed in 1928 to celebrate Chicago’s centennial, the new exposition was meant to return Chicago to fair fame after a succession of dull Beaux Arts expositions in San Francisco, St. Louis, and Philadelphia. The 1933 Chicago exposition was to be financed by the continuation of the 20’s boom years of industry and stock market gains, but the national economic crash of 1929 stopped. That such an event could happen, the fact that even the idea could survive, let alone be planned, financed and built duri ...

Kululu Atsiaya was born in Nairobi Kenya, in East Africa. In this autobiography, Kululu takes the reader through his life against all odds; spending his entire childhood and teenage in a harsh slum on the outskirts of Nairobi, his fight with himself and his environment in an effort to defeat the ever beckoning hand into the world of theft and other crime that was the path of choice for the ‘successful’ men and women of his neighbourhood. It is also an account of how an individual judged as deficient in learning capacity rises to graduate from a university; in spite of himself. In a manner that is a mix of anecdotes of an African urban childhood and an honest account of his life, Kululu ...

This is the second volume that tells the story of my life as a firefighter for the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM), mostly in Alaska. Volume II covers the years 1979 through the 1984; volume I covers the years 1973 to 1978. The first person text traces my experiences and observations chronologically and relies on both original source materials and on personal memories. I have included many color photographs to supplement the text and provide a visual historical reference that would otherwise be missing from a purely textual account. The book may have the greatest appeal to firefighters past and present, but it may also appeal to individuals interested in a very specific segment o ...

One thing I have wanted to do for many years is to put together a book featuring my mother Florence's stories. I want her spirit to live on through her folktales. Her stories are magical. My mother's legends have stayed with me all my life. I'm sure my brothers and sister heard the same yarns, but this book is written the way I remember them. I believe mom gave me her imaginative stories so I could write about them when I grew up. I wouldn't have written this book if I had not gone to college. I was in my forties and going to the University of Colorado at Denver when I discovered I had a talent for writing. One course I took in Women’s Studies was autobiographical writing. I began ...

This is the compelling true story of the author's parents, who lived as missionaries among Stone Age Spinifex aborigines in the Australian outback for almost two decades. Exciting adventures - vast cultural differences - living day to day under challenging conditions - became the undreamed-of reality for Bob and Ethel Stewart, an average American couple. In 2003, an Australian government official toured outback aboriginal communities. He was stunned to discover that, more than 35 years later, the aborigines of Western Australia not only remembered them, but still highly revered their Tjamu and Lyunku.
