At the age of nine, Alton Carter left home and walked himself into foster care with a dream of someday having a normal life. Not a fancy life. Not a famous life. But what once was the American dream: a place to call home that was warm in the winter and bearable in the summer, with regular meals and a loving family that made sure children made it to school on time each day. Building on his award-winning book The Boy Who Carried Bricks, Carter shares more of his own personal childhood stories of trial and survival, making the case that youngsters from such homes should be seen for what they are: not victims but survivors-for they have overcome abuse, neglect, and vio-lence that would cripple most adults.

Author and wildlife expert Mike Lapinski compiled this chilling collection of true bear-encounter stories from throughout the western United States, British Columbia, and Alaska. Some have happy endings, some fatal; all are thrilling. But there's more to this book than a heart-pounding read. Think of these as campfire stories with a higher purpose. Lapinski strongly advocates the use of bear pepper spray for backpackers, rangers, anglers, hunters, photographers, anybody who hikes through bear country. Repelling and reconditioning bears saves lives, both human and bruin. The author also shares insights into bear behavior, why they attack, and how to travel through bear country. Mike Lapinski has written eight other outdoors and nature books. He conducts seminars on grizzly bears and the use of pepper spray in encounters with bears as well as other large predators. He makes his home in Montana.

Jacquelyn tells this story in a very unique and compelling style of writing which leaves the reader unable to put the book down as they wonder, "Then what happens?" It is an amazing tale of survival as Jacquelyn moves heaven and earth in an unbelievable battle for her freedom. To actually become, "free" she almost loses her life and must sacrifice all she has. This is a story of a mother's unconditional love for her children. The children she is willing to die to protect, as she overcomes the chains that bind her. It is a tale of hope and leaves the reader with a deep appreciation for their own journey and a new found inspiration for living. The story is made all the more powerful by the legal evidence she has provided in the book to support her claims. This evidence has been fully admitted to in court and is now a matter of public record. The recorded evidence is chilling as it gives a rare insight into the mind of a monster, as it is written in his very own hand writing on his business letter head. Jacquelyn also offers a detailed insight into the systems that she and many others have had to navigate through. This book may help to change some of the laws surrounding these issues. Powerfully moving, deeply engaging and written with raw honesty, this book is well worth the read. This book will be marketed to the millions of people screaming for change, awareness and insight to bring safety and justice to our world.
