Who doesn't want to quit the rat race and pack it all in to see the world? And it is not as if Sherrie and Patrick were strangers to travel. They met on Patrick's first round the world trip by motorcycle. Sherrie fell hard for the open road and the freedom of two wheels and a tent. How much harder could living on a sailboat be? Or at least that was Patrick's opinion. Sherrie is a Newfoundlander. She thought it prudent to bring up the Titanic whenever Patrick mentioned his dream of sailing around the world. And then they had babies. Which meant that dream of sticking them in a sidecar was no longer so realistic. Because putting imaginary babies in your sidecar is very different from putting breathing ones in. The desire to keep up a semi nomadic lifestyle beckoned, but could Sherrie get over her fear of living on the ocean? And just as she agrees to commit to a life afloat, heartbreak and betrayal threaten to end the trip before it even begins. Confessions of A Reluctant Sailor tells of how one family on the verge of breaking up and a woman brought to her knees with grief, went forward with fulfilling a dream and knitting themselves back together, all the while learning the very real difference between fear and danger. If you have ever dreamed of packing up and escaping the rat race, or even wondered how to move forward during a time of heartbreak and loss, get your copy today.

The Bible is a big Book, and we are blessed to have such a collection of inspired writing – the Word of God – at our finger tips.

THE BIBLE MADE EASY – FOR KIDS guides children through the Bible by: • answering some of the most common questions they have about the events and characters in the Bible • providing interesting facts to stimulate them and get them excited • offering visual descriptions of what they read to help them remember • drawing modern-day comparisons to certain Bible concepts/traditions and putting it into context • word definitions • Question and Answer sections that assess whether they can remember what they’ve read.

Taking a comprehensive, nuanced, and inclusive approach to Christopher Columbus, this illuminating biography with activities for young readers places him in the context of the explorations that came before, during, and after his lifetime. It portrays the “Admiral of the Ocean Seas” neither as hero nor heel, but as a flawed and complex man whose significance is undeniably monumental. Providing kids, parents, and teachers with a fuller picture of the seafaring life and the dangers and thrills of exploration, author Ronald Reis details all four of Columbus’s voyages to the New World, not just his first, and describes the year that Columbus spent stranded on the island of Jamaica without hope of rescue. A full chapter is devoted to painting a more complete and complex portrait of the indigenous peoples of the New World and another to the consequences of Columbus’s voyages—the exchange of diseases, ideas, crops, and populations between the New World and the Old. Engaging cross-curricular activities, such as taking nautical measurements, simulating a hurricane, making an ancient globe, and conducting silent trade, elucidate nautical concepts introduced and the times in which Columbus lived.

The tall ship Sofia sank off New Zealand’s North Island in February 1982, stranding its crew on disabled life rafts for five days. They struggled to survive as any realistic hope of rescue dwindled. Just a few years earlier, Pamela Sisman Bitterman was a naïve swabbie looking for adventure, signing on with a sailing co-operative taking this sixty-year-old, 123-foot, three-masted gaff-topsail schooner around the globe. The aged Baltic trader had been rescued from a wooden boat graveyard in Sweden and reincarnated as a floating commune in the 1960s. By the time Sofia went down, Bitterman had become an able seaman, promoted first to bos’un and then acting first mate, immersing herself in this life of a tall ship sailor, world traveler, and survivor.
