This is an incredible, inspiring true story of a young man's dream and stubborn courage. Nicholas Isika left Kenya as a teenager and arrived in the United States with only forty-five dollars in his pocket, but he earned an education at Augustana Academy in Canton, South Dakota. Even then, it was never a given that he would build a career in finance and a successful international business. Much of his success can be traced back to the wisdom instilled in him by his parents, who always told him, "The mind that won't quit through hard times and refuses to sit and wait, but applies action instead, is the mind that will succeed." You'll be inspired by Nick's journey from farming in Kenya to playing an important role in high-stakes business in his adopted country. His perseverance, family values, and intelligence allowed him to learn tremendous lessons while traveling down "Rivers of Courage and Doubt.

Heartbreaking, darkly funny and deeply moving, Of Ashes and Rivers That Flow to the Sea has the potential to became a My Place for a new generation. An old snapshot falling out of a book changed the course of 20 year old Marie Munkara's life forever. Until that moment she had no reason to doubt her adopted parents' explanation of her Pacific Island origins. Instead, Marie was delivered on the banks of the Mainoru River in Arnhemland by her two grandmothers. Of Chinese, Rembarranga and Tiwi descent, she counts herself lucky not to have been thrown to the crocodiles - the fate of many other babies born with light skin. This matter of fact solution was considered much kinder to save such children from the heartbreak of what their lives would become, torn between two worlds. But her mother wanted to keep her little girl. So Marie spent her first few years on Bathurst Island until at three years old she was taken from her family and raised with a white family. Marie did not discover her origins, and then only by chance, and return to her family until she was in her twenties. When she went looking for her family, her strict, Catholic Melbourne establishment family was aghast. Why big up the past? But Marie knew, without doubt, that she belonged in a different culture. With devastating honesty, dark humour and courage, the award-winning author of Every Secret Thing shares her extraordinary journey to discover where she truly belongs.

Napoleon s Shield Guardian

This outstanding biography is the story of courage. It charts the career of a superbly brave cavalryman against the rise and fall of his imperial master. Pierre Daumesnil was a loyal follower of Napoleon during his rise and his fall. Enlisting as a private soldier in 1793, he was caught up in the tumult of the Napoleonic Wars, surviving campaign after campaign and emerging as a much-decorated general and Baron of the Empire. It was a meteoric rise but one earned through hard fighting, bravery and indefatigable courage. Daumesnil accompanied Napoleon as an officer of his chasseurs and his service record reflects his years of experience on the field of battle. Daumesnil joined the French Army as a private in 1793 and was serving in Napoleon's Guides in 1797. He served in Egypt in 1798, charged at Marengo in 1800, fought at Austerlitz and Eylau, campaigned in Spain and saw action in Wagram. Terribly wounded at that battle, losing a leg, Daumesnil became governor of the fortress of Vincennes. It was here that he played his most celebrated role in the wars of Napoleon by refusing to surrender the fortress to the Allies in 1814 and again in 1815. Daumesnil's life was an adventure and one which typifies the dash, colour and verve of this astonishing period. This biography, by a leading author, will appeal to Napoleonic enthusiasts and those interested in the life and times of Napoleon's elite cavalrymen.
