AS I RECALL, is a series of short stories recalling personal experiences of the author when a young Marine serving in Korea. Unlike most memoirs describing the horrors of war Tsegeletos describes the sights, sounds and what is most fascinating, the thoughts that ran through his mind during each incident. An occasional quip added while engaged in life threatening action, brings to the reader lighthearted relief to what at the very least is serious business indeed. At the age of 17, George along with many of his high school friends joined a Marine reserve unit located close to home. 1950 and half way around the globe North Korea invaded South Korea, but to these young Marines it seemed too far away to be of much concern. Looking forward to their graduation, summer vacation and beginning a new career, whether college or work, their world is suddenly turned upside down when they are rushed into a very uncertain military future. From his first step on North Korean soil through each story that follows, including the final narrative describing the experience of survival in the cold frozen environment during the epic Chosin Reservoir Campaign, you will be taking each step with him. Included are illustrations interspersed between stories and copies of actual letters sent home. The book leaves you with a true picture of life in a foxhole as seen through the eyes of a young Marine. Tsegeletos will hold the readers attention and win the hearts of all moms with a young son in the U.S. Marines.

According to pastor and spiritual director Casey Tygrett, how we hold and carry our memories—good and bad—is a part of what forms us spiritually. In this way we have a common bond with the people of Scripture who also had a sensory life. In these pages Tygrett explores the power of memory and offers biblical texts and practices to guide us in bringing our memories to God for spiritual transformation.

A Lifetime of Family and Friends

As I Recall is a collection of humorous and heartfelt short stories and poetry sharing moments from a life full of laughter and love. Author Ray Dillard has long wanted to record these memories of his life for family and friends; however, early in the process, he discovered more than the need to create a personal legacy for his family. He found a new voice that told colorful and descriptive stories and provided an inspiring message. He attributes his understanding of the human spirit and its need for nourishment to his experiences as a son, brother, husband, father, and teacher. The collection is divided into two parts: part one, consisting of short stories drawn from Dillard’s life; and part two, presenting his poetry. In both, he captures the essence of the important and interesting experiences of his life thus far. His imagery and tone are clear in the following excerpt from a longer poem about his father: When We Were Young He left for work each morning, Wearing steel-toed boots and a tin hat. He took long strides that were three times The length of mine. In one hand he carried a lunch pail and a thermos. The other hand was empty, Like his wallet. Bye-Bye Daddy ...

Memoirs of a Legal Immigrant’s Journey From Cuba to USA

The purpose of this book is simply to share with the readers the events—some very intense—that strongly impacted my life. It is written directly from my memory; therefore, some dates might not be exact, but the events are as clear in my mind as at the time of their occurrence. It’s a journey from oppression to freedom and a profound expression of gratitude to Spain, which made the journey faster and easier by granting our visas in less than four hours and allowed us to stay in that beautiful and hospitable country for almost five months, and to our adoptive motherland, the United States of America, for welcoming us to the land of the free and the home of the brave. The very difficult situations described in this book had a positive aspect, because each one of them made our character stronger and our faith firmer as a gift from God, whose power and mercy we felt every time there was a problem that we could not solve in our own. It is not necessary to add anything else at this time. The book presents a clear narrative of the journey where the reader may also find diversity—a recently used and abused concept—at work. I let the reader discover the character-building struggles and the spiritual growth that was directly proportional to the intensity of the hardships and overt or covert persecution. As Father Mérito González said in Spain during a homily: “How do we know our strengths without tests and trials?” Let’s make faith, hope and love the most important pillars of life and we will find that with God we can cross raging waters walking on a bridge of rotten wood. Enjoy!

Donnie Allison was always the "other" brother of the famous NASCAR racing duo. Overshadowed throughout his career by Bobby Allison, his older brother and the third-winningest driver in NASCAR history, Donnie often did not get his due for being an outstanding racer in his own right. Perhaps only true students of NASCAR history know that Donnie Allison won 10 races in his career. That he posted top 10 finishes in 47 percent of all the races he ever ran. That four of the five times the Allison brothers ran 1-2 in a race, it was Donnie in front at the checkers. Fewer still may know that he was rookie of the year in the 1970 Indianapolis 500 or that he seriously considered giving up stockcar racing to go drive Indy cars full-time for A.J. Foyt. So little is known about Donnie Allison in part because he wasn't much of a talker in his racing days. Donnie lived by the philosophy that his driving did his talking for him. If he won, it told people he was successful. If he didn't, well they knew he had something to work on. Over the years, his being so tight-lipped led to many misconceptions, twisted tales and outright falsehoods about Donnie Allison, his racing career and his life. In Donnie Allison: As I Recall...., he sets the record straight on a variety of subjects he's wanted to clear up for years, including the 1979 Daytona 500 and the famous fight in the infield with Cale Yarborough; the win NASCAR tried to steal from him and give to Richard Petty; and his ultra-competitive, often-combative relationship with a racing brother who didn't like to lose to anybody. Many stories make the rounds about Donnie Allison and often when they are re-told -- even by members of his own family--thecircumstances aren't related the way Donnie recalls them. That's why he wanted to do a book. "I've got lots of stories to tell, and I want to tell them the way I remember them," Donnie says. In Donnie Allison: As I Recall..., he's done just that.

This memoir is an amalgam of the early life and education of a boy born in the depression era, though not greatly affected by it, educated first at Harvard University then the University of Buffalo College of Medicine, followed by residency appointments at the University of Chicago, the National Institutes of Health and Stanford University. His professional career was spent at the University of Florida as a professor of surgery, the chief of a general surgery service and the founder of the state's first transplantation program. The book is also a description of the growth and development of his family chronologically linked with his career, thus a history of his wife and children and of his contemporaries in the medical school, the two facets of his life that were complementary.

Gary Cartwright is one of Texas's legendary writers. In a career spanning nearly six decades, he has been a newspaper reporter, Senior Editor of Texas Monthly, and author of several acclaimed books, including Blood Will Tell, Confessions of a Washed-up Sportswriter, and Dirty Dealing. Cartwright was a finalist for a National Magazine Award for reporting excellence, and he has won several awards from the Texas Institute of Letters, including its most prestigious—the Lon Tinkle Award for lifetime achievement. His personal life has been as colorful and occasionally outrageous as any story he reported, and in this vivid, often hilarious, and sometimes deeply moving memoir, Cartwright tells the story of his writing career, tangled like a runaway vine with great friendships, love affairs, four marriages, four or five great dogs . . . looking always to explain, at least to himself, how the pattern probably makes a kind of perverted sense. Cartwright's career began at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and Fort Worth Press, among kindred spirits and fellow pranksters Edwin "Bud" Shrake and Dan Jenkins. He describes how the three rookie writers followed their mentor Blackie Sherrod to the Dallas Times Herald and the Dallas Morning News, becoming the "best staff of sportswriters anywhere, ever" and creating a new kind of sportswriting that "swept the country and became standard." Cartwright recalls his twenty-five years at Texas Monthly, where he covered everything from true crime to notable Texans to Texas's cultural oddities. Along the way, he tells lively stories about "rebelling against sobriety" in many forms, with friends and co-conspirators that included Willie Nelson, Ann Richards, Dennis Hopper, Willie Morris, Don Meredith, Jack Ruby, and countless others. A remarkable portrait of the writing life and Austin's counterculture, The Best I Recall may skirt the line between fact and fiction, but it always tells the truth.

Jacksonville's Place in American Rock History

A reflective look at some of those responsible for the placement of Jacksonville, Florida on the universal map of rock and roll. This autobiographical account of personal and professional triumph and tragedy takes the reader through the formative years of both Lynyrd Skynyrd and 38 Special, recounting those days when making records was only a dream. Former 38 Special stage manager and co-writer, Larry Steele, gives a first-hand account of growing up on the Westside of Jacksonville, of forming his first band with Allen Collins, and of the journey they each pursued, where scores of novice musicians sought a better way of life. Steele describes his own experiences as a musician, along with the friendships that would endure the rivalry which existed between his own band and those who would eventually become Lynyrd Skynyrd. After years of performing with various bands in the North Florida area, including a brief stint with Skynyrd in 1973, Steele would begin his employment with 38 Special in January, 1980. From here is chronicled the 38 story from its very beginning; the frustrations of living in the shadow of Skynyrd while trying to perfect a sound of their own, and the decision to push forward after the tragic loss of their friend, brother and mentor, Ronnie Van Zant. From the rehearsal hall, to the recording studios, to headlining the most renowned concert venues of North America, Europe and Japan, take a ride on the buses, planes and bullet trains that took them all the way there.
